Alto Key

Alto Key is a British indie folk artist, created by singer-songwriter Keian Barton. Barton composes each song at home in London, and works with musicians around the world to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Alto Key's emphasis on recording with real instruments make for a warm acoustic sound. With touches of upbeat pop elements, each song masterfully blends beautiful orchestral tones with raw, emotional lyrics.

Their first EP - 'Animals' - is now available on every digital music platform.

Τhe website has a highly artistic background but is very limited to choices and information about the artist.

Maura Streppa


Maura is a young singer songwriter who started writing music at age 15. Born and raised in Chicago, she recently moved to North Carolina where she began performing in local music venues. She makes her music to encourage young girls to stay independent and strong, and especially to see their inner beauty. Maura hopes to help empower young woman and to inspire them through positive and uplifting messages. She just completed her first EP entitled "Empire".

Although Maura's website is fully up-to-date, we believe that social media should be informed about the best promotion of the artist. Maura's social media are very fresh so she will need a boost fro the music community so shart sharing boys and girls starting from her facebook page.

Almond & Olive

Almond & Olive (A&O), comprised of singer-songwriters Natalie Alms and Ollie Davidson, creates inspiring songs that span the folk and Americana genres, while also incorporating Alms’ timeless vocals and the duo’s distinct songwriting. Blended together, Alms and Davidson's voices sound made for each other, soaring and guiding the music through all the ups and downs of these finely crafted songs. The music on their upcoming debut album, called Standing at the Precipice, features Alms mostly on banjo and Davidson mostly on acoustic guitar, while also deploying highly skilled professional musicians, stalwarts of Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music scene, who provide backing throughout the record. The album was recorded at Kingsize Sound Labs in Chicago with incomparable producer John Abbey, who's also recorded the likes of Robbie Fulks and Jonas Friddle. Together A&O and Abbey are creating an impressive debut for one of Chicago's most exciting new bands. To help pay for the album, the duo successfully received funding from a Kickstarter, raising over $10,000 is 30 days from over 110 backers.

Just Seconds Apart

Just Seconds Apart is made up of Sela, Ari, and Alex Poulos—19-year-old triplets who have devoted most of their lives to making music. After learning to play piano at age three, the Scottsdale, Arizona-based trio formed a band at age eight and soon started writing their own songs. Featuring Sela on drums, Ari on guitar, and Alex on keyboards and bass—with all three siblings lending their vocal talents—Just Seconds Apart delivers a timeless pop-rock sound built on irresistible hooks, heart-stirring lyrics, and breathtaking three-part harmonies.

The latest release from Just Seconds Apart, Good to Know,  as described by Atwood Magazine, "is the band’s most intimate and personal song yet.  Not only is it polished and easily accessible, but it’s also deeply meaningful – a trait we can’t say for the majority of music makers in this particular pop soundspace.   'The inspiration for this song came from our own story, making this one very special to us,'  Just Seconds Apart tell Atwood Magazine.  'We were at a time where we saw things we envisioned for our career start to manifest, but for the things that hadn’t yet, we needed something good to know.'"   Atwood Magazine explains, "Ambient and boppy like The 1975’s earlier work or Justin Bieber’s latest, “Good to Know” taps into a refreshing dance-pop vibe rife with inner tension and turmoil. For all its wanting to feel positivity and warmth, “Good to Know” lurks in a dark place. It’s on the other side of happiness, an emotional mindset that longs for relief from its own melancholy and doubt." 

You can fing out more about the background of the band on the official website, see their highlights and read some interesting reviews. Also there is social media presence that youo can start ckecking and sharing... First stop facebook page.

The current lineup has come together from around the world to make this music. Guitarist/vocalist Andrey Borzykin is from Russia and lead guitarist Gabriel De Mattia hails from Brazil. They met vocalist Alexandra 'Sasha' Razumova and drummer Adam Soucy in the USA and discovered how strong they were as a unit.
