It’s been another rough couple of weeks as I’m just finishing up a nine-day run of opening my store without a day off. I think the incredible new singles and music videos we’re sharing today will make the wait worthwhile, so let’s get started.
Our first single this week comes from a songwriter known for her positive messages and incredible musical abilities. Aptly named “Hold On,” the latest single from the incredible Patricia Bahia will lift your spirits and give you hope. Welcome to the new anthem for this crazy time in our history.
They started out as a trio of sisters named Southern Halo before becoming the duo known as American Blonde. They have now released their debut single and it’s a definite keeper. Let’s give it up for this amazing band and avoid the “Quicksand.”
Continuing in the country/Americana vein, our favorite LA queer indie artist Abby Posner is back with another great tune. We think she has reached a new “high” with her latest, “Low, Low, Low.” This one is definitely going on repeat.
We haven’t featured any reggae/funk in a while and we think this new tune from Canadian rock band Gnome Chimpsky is just perfect. We love their vibe and look forward to hearing more from them. Check out “Peter Pepper.”
Our final single this week is from Asian American artist Roma Sheth. She has an incredibly upbeat style that deserves Top 40 radio attention, and showcases those abilities in her latest, “So I Run.” We think we’ll be hearing a lot more from this artist in the future.
NEW MUSIC VIDEOS
Delaney Gibson may feel like an “Alien” in her transplanted home in Austin, Texas, but people that love great indie music think she is the Queen of the Realm. Check out her incredible new music video and definitely put her on your favorites list.
Next up is the latest from another of our favorite indie artists who moved to New York from California to pursue her Zen. She may be looking through “Rose Colored Glasses,” but we love the view. Thanks to Katie Costello for another instant classic.
Our third video this week features the stunning voice of Rachel Lorin. She is bringing her pop/country to a new high with “Shoot a Man,” and we think she is about to break into the big time. This one will get your toes tapping and deserves serious radio air play.
Continuing in the country vein, our next music video is a reimagining of a song that was recorded back in 2011. We love the visualization which brings the words of the song, “Erase You,” to life. Thank you Tawny Ellis for another beautiful indie music moment.
We close out this edition of Monday Mashup with another great country artist, but Teea Goans has a surprise for us. That amazing harmony comes from none other than the one and only Vince Gill, and we can’t get enough of this.
“That’s What I Know” is our pick for the best country song of 2021.
