Music industry update | California, USA | Indie artist, Megan Mcduffee

Since she shot to independent synthpop superstardom with the release of the critically acclaimed single, “Hero” back in 2018, San Francisco’s Megan McDuffee, who got her start and made a name for herself in the music industry as a video game and film music composer, hasn’t gone a single month without releasing something new or having something exciting go viral. So of course it is possible that some fans could find it difficult or even impossible to juggle keeping up with her rapidly growing synthpop music catalog and keeping up with her also rapidly growing catalog of video game and film soundtracks – but not anymore. This week Megan unveiled a Spotify playlist that brings all her solo and collaborative synthpop projects together under one roof. The playlist is titled “Synth Siren”. So at least one half of the exciting problem is sorted now.

Music industry update | Georgia, USA | Indie artist, Lion Tafari

After a relatively quiet 2019, Georgia, US independent reggae star, Lion Tafari is back on the scene and has announced that he’s working on some new music for 2020. It’s been just over 5 years since his critically acclaimed debut album, “Fiyah Starta” took his local reggae scene by surprise before bringing the US reggae scene as a whole to its knees, and just over 3 since his last single, “Remember The Dayz” followed suit. For many legendary artists, topping their best work is one of the greatest challenges and some will never release a new record until they are sure they’ve done it. He has previously announced once or twice over the past couple of years that new music is in the works but it has become apparent that Lion might be taking his time to ensure that what’s coming is one for the books and more spectacular than the last. Fans and critics alike are hoping it’s a full length project. We’ll just have to wait and see. Watch this space for updates, official 2020 release dates and gigs.
