*Luke James Shaffer- Last First kiss
“In 2015 Luke James Shaffer challenged himself to write/record/release a song a week. ‘Last First Kiss’ was one of the songs from that year of songwriting. It’s a short story of the first kiss Luke had with his wife, in the small town of Bowling Green, OH where it first happened. It was a late, rainy night and the streets were empty. One doesn’t really think about a “Last First Kiss” until it happens. Luke’s quite happy to have found it. The year of songwriting really pushed Luke to become a better songwriter and musician.”

A 19 year old Singer-Songwriter from Poole, UK. Tough Luck is about not letting knock backs keep you down and learning to have the perseverance to get back up. I wrote it during a time where I was struggling on my music path as I was constantly experiencing knock backs and rejection. Ultimately it’s about overcoming that and realising that rejection is a part of the journey and is what moulds you to be the strong and appreciative person you become. I experience knock backs regularly on my music journey, but I like to think I have the drive to carry on pursuing my passion in this extremely tough industry. ‘Tough Luck’ features on my debut EP ‘THE GAME’ which I independently released last September. It’s available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and I also have physical copies available to purchase via my website: www.taraflanagan.com
Shawn S.W.I.M. Pereira – Love Is
LOVE IS by Shawn SWIM Pereira is an edm remix of an acoustic song I wrote . I am a model/writer/creative thinker with the desire to make G free music ( Genre free ) I write everything on acoustic guitar and the songs grow and evolve as I collaborate and create with other writers singers etc . LOVE IS has been on Latin America’s largest radio RCN top ten charts for 32 weeks and hit #1 six times.
A conduit of multi-medium expressive exploration culminated by sonic delivery in the style of progressive heavy rock. Flowing from brutal to beautiful, the music delivers diversity and depth, stoking the senses and expanding the mind. Our song, “System’s Son”, is a reflection upon the fact that we are all products of the system into which we are born and raised. In order to transcend that position, we must free ourselves from negative influence, become aware of who we truly are, know where we currently stand, and find out where it is that we ultimately want to go.
