A vulnerable record that is as bare bones as it gets in terms of pulling from all things personal, HIT ME HARD AND SOFT is a transcendental, sonic experience on the production side of things. Fans are treated to the best of both artists who worked on it: Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, the dynamic duo who have stated on numerous occasions that writing and recording the critically-acclaimed “What Was I Made For?” was a massive catalyst in how this LP came to be. That single for Barbie (2023) supposedly spawned a fresh, emotional renaissance in the studio in the same ..read more

This concert on October 23 was Barrett’s highly-anticipated, long-awaited hometown show as the Jersey native has only sold-out the surrounding cities of New York and Philadelphia thus far in her music career.

This is what you get when you put a female photographer in the photo pit – smiles, stardust, and poetry in motion.

When a photographer (or anyone, for that matter) leaves a show and immediately says, “She was so damn cool,” about the artist on stage… you just know that everything went right. The lights twinkled in time, the stage glimmered, the dancers strutted, and the singer electrified the audience through commanding it all. On May 31 at Irving Plaza, Hayley Kiyoko used her personal sparkle – and damn cool attitude – to do just that. Personal is the right word to use, too. Kiyoko’s stylish alternative pop catalog has always been a solo endeavor based in truth. She wears her heart ..read more

By touching on a little bit of everything, this empowered musician has created a community that shares ideas and values as much as they do stories and songs.

In this capacity, she has released seven studio albums so far (including If It All Goes South, which came out last September). With this band, she’s set to play a ..read more
