Monday mashup 2022 (vol. 2)

It’s almost spring, and amazing new music continues to burst forth in this beautiful post-Covid time of reconnecting to the rest of the world. We have some amazing tunes for you this week, so let’s get started.

NEW SINGLES

First up this week is the latest from the multi-talented band called Ponderosa Grove. Not only are they creating great music, but their lead vocalist, Candace Devine, is producing the Pure Imagination Festival in their hometown of Prescott, Arizona. They just added the legendary Wynonna to their already amazing lineup. The music of Ponderosa Grove is so refreshing and we really think their latest, “Changin,'” will become your theme song. Give it up for them.

Next up are two sisters from Nashville that call themselves American Blonde. Their music is radio ready and their latest, “Blackwater Creek,” is the perfect vehicle to truly launch them into the mainstream. Watch for these guys to take country radio by storm with their brilliant storytelling and pitch-perfect harmonies.

Jackie Lee McLean may be the daughter of a legendary American musical icon, but she has earned her place in the industry through self-reflection, strong relatable lyrics and memorable musical compositions that connect her to the rest of the world. On stage she goes by Roan Yellowthorn, and her latest single, “One Tear at a Time,” is a remake of the classic Rusty Young (Poco) tune for a special Blue Elan Records project honoring Young’s music. Check out the entire album.

MILCK has become the voice of empowerment for women around the world, and her latest, “Power,” is further proof of his place as the Queen of Empowerment.” Bow down before her majesty and rise up into a great new beginning.

Our final single this week reminds us of the power duo of Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. This song will leave you laughing and crying at the same time, as Julia Cole and Alexandra Kay tell us about the “Best Worst Ex.” It’s no wonder Tim McGraw chose Kay to open up his next tour. Catch them in concert this summer.

NEW MUSIC VIDEOS

Our first music video this week is a heartwarming and uplifting country tune from Bryan Lanning, who extols the value of letting your children grow up at their own pace. We think “Let ‘Em Grow” will become a theme song and source of inspiration for new parents.

Next up is the latest lyric video from Canadian band Ellevator, who we have featured before. We love the driving beat and the powerful lyrics of “Sacred Heart” and think you will too. Enjoy the latest from this stellar group.

Our third video features Canadian R&B artist Myles Lloyd in a powerfully moving video about living life called “Down Under.” This one is worthy of your attention.

Paloma is a 14-year old phenom whose music shows maturity way past her years. Listen carefully to the words of her latest, “Momma,” and we think you will see the future of music.

Our final video this week is a bluesy classic from Sandy Haley with a message that should resonate with women all over the world, “Love me Right or Cut me Loose.” Man up and heed the message.
