Music industry update | Massachusetts, USA | Indie artist, The Watermark High

Guaranteed to put shivers in spines and smiles on faces (at the same time) every single time, The Watermark High is an electronic music composer and producer whose fanbase knows just what they are getting every time there is word of a new release - at least that’s what they generally always think; but every single time they are left astounded, their wildest expectations grossly surpassed and their bar for good music raised so high they’d never be the same again. If you really don’t know what good music is (yes, there are people out there who don’t) or you have never been fully satisfied by your lover (oops!! favorite artist I mean), then you are better off listening to Kanye West’s very first song and then working your way up to this. But wait, why Kanye West’s first song you may ask? Well, it’s his only good record as far as we know. As far as he knows, he was God after that song and everyone knows God doesn’t make the best songs (he-he-he, have you ever been to a Catholic mass? Not very danceable ey? But sleep-able, yes!). Nevertheless, Kanye was one of the producers behind many top hits of the early 2000s and maybe even as far back as the mid '90s so of course he must have been one of the best producers at the time. But those days are long gone and you’ve discovered The Watermark High, so let’s get right down to the new record shall we? 

Released on the 26th of March, “Remember When ...?” has been hailed by fans and critics as one of the US based South African producer’s best records to date – but then they’ve said that for every single new record since he made his debut just under a decade ago. We won’t say much about it and let you be the judge. Have you listened to that Kanye West song yet? Okay you are ready now. [Stream track below]

Music industry update | Ontario, Canada | Indie artist, Crissi Cochrane

A few months ago, Crissi Cochrane joined Patreon as many artists have been doing since the advent of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, which has forced live music venues to close and stripped musicians of a very crucial source of income. Fans have been quick to support the independent Ontario sensation, who has been doing well to keep soul music in its most intrinsic form alive for just under a decade now. They have been rewarded handsomely for their support every step of the way. 

Every month, Crissi has something fresh, new and exciting for her Patreon subscribers – unreleased songs, exclusive music videos, live performance videos, live stream concerts and all sorts of goodies that are guaranteed to put smiles on faces every single time. On the 24th of March she released a new song titled “The Game”. Her Patreon supporters were first to see the live performance video of the record a week prior to its official release date. If you missed it you can watch it below, and if you have seen it already you can also watch it again (and again and again) below - so she can rack up some of that good ol' YouTube advertisement revenue that content creators need more so than ever before during these trying times. Don't forget to share it as well. 

So wait - you may be thinking, maybe even scratching your head as well; why the grossly misleading headline? You probably thought you would be elbow-deep in some fresh new Snoop Doggy Dog or be reading about some exciting American pimps and hoes doing amazing things with ping-pong balls by now didn't you? He-he-he.  Sometimes we just like to have fun with titles, also, it seemed like it would be a good way to segue you into what you are about to read now. Buy the record! Good music is to be sold for big big bucks, not streamed for shillings on Spotify Premium. Wait, you've got premium at least right? You're not still using the free ad-supported version are you? If you are; yuk, yuk, yuk; upgrade now... or else.

Music industry update | Ontario, Canada | Indie artist, Max Marshall

Have you heard about the new Canadian music collective that is shaking things up in the world of soul music? If you have then you are in for a treat, if you haven’t you are in for a double treat. Well, Soul Music City Coop, the Ontario collective that is not only keeping soul music alive but is going a step further and ever so gently pushing its boundaries and spicing the genre up in ways never been done before, is growing and getting even more exciting than what its newly established and rapidly-growing fan base could have ever imagined or even wished for in their wildest musical fantasies - what!? you don't have any musical fantasies? And no, meeting Rihanna backstage after a concert and way too much molly, and making out for an hour is not what we're talking about right now; although that would be pretty darn cool - I'd totally wet my pants and be fine with it. For example, imagine if Miley Cyrus crashed your birthday party by literally crashing through the walls naked on a wrecking ball and then proceeded to perform your favorite song naked over a live beat by Bach, Beethoven, Timbaland, Mike Will Made This, Kanye West and Swizz Beatz while Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa smoked weed and played the bongos quietly in the background - no making out involved here at all, and certainly no sorority sisters who can't pay for the pizza delivery they ordered, see how that's different? No? Moving on...

After the recent addition of Ayola back in the summer of 2020 during the heat of the infamous pandemic lockdowns that we’ll never be able to forget, the collective added another exciting new member, Max Marshall on the 19th of March. The collective describes him as a “one-of-a-kind finger-style folk guitarist with deep roots and biting words”. He’s from Essex County and plays a bluesy blend of country, folk and soul. So what’s his deal? Well stick around and let’s find out. Scroll down and start by listening to some of his top tracks in the music player. New music, news updates, concert tickets, behind the scenes clips, tour dates and more will be provided here as they become available.

Music industry update | Georgia, USA | Indie artist, Jackie's Boy

Produced by Grammy member Shaun Moore of 11th Grade Music, “Art Imitates Love” is a record by Savannah, Georgia indie artist and Grammy award-winning songwriter Jackie’s Boy. He performed the track live during the latest episode of his new weekly web series "Music Monday”. As with many of the singles that have been featured on the series the song is yet to be released and no release date has been set if there is any on the horizon at all but once available it will be provided here. In case you don’t know already, feedback is what the series is all about and it is not just very much welcomed but it is very important as well to ensure your favorite songs make it into the record stores and eventually into your Spotify and Apple Music playlist. This doesn't apply to you if you are still using free ad-supported versions, yuk, yuk, yuk. Just kidding he-he-he, but seriously, that's so wrong, you know it's wrong, just get premium so the music industry can stop feeding us You-Ate-Ass-And-You-Loved-It pop music; we don't all do that, that's nasty. So tell us what you think, tell Jackie’s Boy what you think, and play your part in shaping the future of R&B and keeping real music as we know it alive before the robots get here with their pitch-perfect voices and their perfectly timed beats. No, those are not necessarily good things in music all the time, in fact, they may be the only things that are guaranteed to drive you completely nuts if nothing else will in the not so far future, in the year twenty twenty something when Viagra has been perfected for men, and women with WAP issues; gays can marry anywhere in the world without people threatening to do unforgivable things to their cheeks - not lesbians obviously, everyone loves a lesbian; goats can be just be goats instead of having to be the greatest all the time; people can sneeze again without instantaneously emptying out the whole perimeter and feeling so ashamed; and weed smokers can get super high once again without getting panic attacks from wrongly assuming they are surrounded by a bunch of ninjas with nothing but wet wipes and see though gloves - to clean up any traces of whatever they do with their amazing hands OBVIOUSLY, because they must be that good to not have swords and throwing stars... just wait and see.

Music industry update | New York, USA | Indie artist, Tamara Bubble

Released on the 21st of March, “Boss Moves” is one of several hot new underground hip hop records that is once again causing pandemonium on the East Coast of the United States’ vibrant, highly competitive hip hop scene. 

Female rappers have often found it hard to compete in hip hop and are, even up till today, more than 3 decades after the genre became widely accepted in mainstream entertainment; a minority. But Brooklyn’s fast-rising independent rap sensation Tamara is changing all that. With back to back hit singles, each one better than the last, almost every month, sometimes twice a month even, she is taking her independent hip hop career to levels other rappers wouldn't even dear to dream of going fully independently.

Premiering in a Television commercial for LegalZoom, an online legal solutions and legal documents provider for small businesses and families; the new record scored Bubble yet another licensed music placement that exposed her music to yet another new demographic of potential fans that will no doubt stick around and become a part of her rapidly-growing loyal fan base as she careers down a path of global domination in the highly competitive world of hip hop.

The Coronavirus pandemic has taken away luxuries we never knew we had, including eating fast food in a fast food restaurant really fast, the way God intended; going out at night for drinks with friends, not ninjas; and most of all, seeing our favorite artists live on stage and feeling their raw energy in person; maybe even getting a taste of their sweat if it's a really good day and all our stars are totally lined up - or wait, is that too much? Is that a weird thing to wish for? 

Luckily the pandemic didn’t take everything away, we are still able to see our favorite artists play live online. Christie Huff recently treated fans to a live stream concert with her full band, during which she performed one of her new singles, “Blow Off Steam”. They didn't get to taste her sweat but it was still pretty amazing. The concert was hosted by the Torrance Cultural Arts Foundation in Los Angeles, California, USA where she’s from.
