Introduucing…Phoebe Ryan!

by Bradley Stern

Meet Phoebe Ryan, a name you’ll likely want to know as soon as you hear that voice for the first time. It’s an immediately captivating kind of voice — featherlight, bright and sort of child-like — bringing other ethereal pop crooners like Becky Jean Williams, Ellie Goulding and LIGHTS to mind. “Mine” is Phoebe’s debut single, and… Read the full article

Introduucing…VÉRITÉ!

by Bradley Stern

I haven’t properly written about VÉRITÉ yet, although she’s been included on at least a few MuuTunes playlists in past months. So, let’s change that. The rising NYC-based singer-songstress makes punchy, propulsive pop armed with soaring hooks, stomping drums, atmospheric textures and rocky undercurrents, seated somewhere at the table alongside Ellie Goulding, Lorde, BROODS, Kate… Read the full article

Introduucing…Years & Years!

by Bradley Stern

Meet Years & Years, a British trio made up of singer Olly, Emre and Mikey. While I was over galavanting/having a much-needed mental escape in Swinging London Town these past two weeks (still severely jet-lagged), I caught the troupe playing a sold-out gig at Plan B. I hadn’t heard a single song up until that… Read the full article

“Ex’s & Oh’s”: Elle King Breaks Hearts With Her Blues Rock Anthem

by Bradley Stern

Meet Elle King, the man eatin’, shit talkin’ spitfire of your dreams…or nightmares. (Boys: You’ve been warned.) Admittedly, the raspy blues rocker doesn’t quite fit the usual MuuMuse mold (stilettos, wigs and an ongoing love affair with the dance floor tend to be the usual M.O.) but, hey: Good music is good music, and “Exes And… Read the full article

Introduucing…Becky Hill!

by Bradley Stern

Becky Hill might only be making her formal solo debut this week, but she’s actually been #KillingIt for well over a year now. You might already recognize the 20-year-old rising UK dance floor diva’s distinctive vocals from Wilkinson‘s “Afterglow” from last year, Oliver Heldens‘ pulsating #1 smash “Gecko (Overdrive),” or Rudimental‘s “Powerless.” Or, perhaps you… Read the full article

Introduucing…Karen Harding!

by Bradley Stern

Sure, Top 40 pop music is a bit, erm, lackluster at the moment. But across the pond, the dance scene continues to flourish. From Disclosure to Clean Bandit to Gorgon City to Route 94 to Sigma to Katy B, there’s been absolutely no shortage of incredibly crafted, early ’90’s House and UK garage greatness in… Read the full article

Introduucing…Grace Mitchell!

by Bradley Stern

Meet Grace Mitchell, a Portland-based singer-songwriter. She’s also only 16 years old — but you’d never guess it after hearing the music. Following an appearance on the tracklisting of the Secret Life Of Walter Mitty soundtrack last year with her gorgeous and dramatic reworking of Hall & Oates’ “Maneater,” the burgeoning songstress just released two new… Read the full article

Introduucing…TIAAN!

by Bradley Stern

Everyone, please give a warm welcome to TIAAN. Back in April, the up-and-coming Australian singer-songwriter dropped a debut EP on Arnthor Birgisson‘s Swedish label, Aristotracks. He’s the genius producer who co-wrote and crafted everything from Jessica Simpson‘s “Irresistible” to Britney‘s “Out From Under” to Janet Jackson‘s “All Nite (Don’t Stop),” so…legend status. The mini-collection includes… Read the full article

Introduucing…Jake Lore!

by Bradley Stern

Meet Jake Lore, an unlikely pop star creating his very own blurred lines. Although the heavily tattooed, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter grew up taking piano and guitar lessons as a child, Jake didn’t take the idea of songwriting too seriously until coming across a blog post about LCD Soundsystem‘s James Murphy inviting bands to use their studio.… Read the full article
