"Most people would listen to my songs and assume it’s about boy meets girl, boy breaks girl’s heart, girl cries. But these songs are actually about my family and the crippling confusion and heartbreak addiction causes."
Under the moniker APHRA (pronounced AF-RA), Philadelphia’s Rebecca Waychunas has meticulously crafted a left-of-pop persona that infuses experiences of personal struggle with both the grit of the DIY/ punk scene and the layered instrumentation of her electronica contemporaries - recalling the likes of a Coexist era The xx mixed with Mitski. Sadness is a Gesture took over two years to write, record, and produce. In both the songs’ evolution and physical manifestation, they trace a journey working through confusion by way of repeated mental and emotional breakdowns to immense personal growth and clarity.
Waychunas started writing songs in high school as a way to make sense of the instability around her. Her openness about the traumatizing effect that drug and alcohol addiction has had on familial and personal relationships serves as the foundation for the sonically diverse tracks. "All of these songs were actually written with a particular person or relationship in mind in which addiction played a huge part,” Waychunas explains. “I don’t personally struggle with any substance issues, but I have realized that I am quite drawn to people who suffer from them. I’ve learned who I am, and who I am in relation to the people closest to me, most intimately through the process of recording this project."
She considers herself lucky to live in a city that offers such a supportive underground music scene. Philadelphia has allowed Waychunas to grow as both a songwriter and performer, and collaborate with artists across several different mediums. Her immersion in these communities has helped hone her proficiency in video production and dance choreography. The release of Sadness is a Gesture serves as both a reflection and expression of APHRA’s deeply personal and creative pursuits. - Bio taken from Facebook page

Not only can she deliver a song with skill and vocal stylings well beyond her years, but she immediately creates a connection with the audience that performers long for in today's music industry with one note.

Addie Hamilton is a twenty-one year old emmy nominated singer/songwriter from Orange, California.
At 15 years old, Addie stumbled across her great grandmother's record player and fell in love with the timeless sounds of Peggy Lee, Benny Goodman, and Eartha Kitt. Her infatuation with 1930-60's jazz, swing, and R&B started as the staples of inspiration for her own sound. By the age of 16 she found herself in studio songwriting. In return, her first record found placement on network television with a featured vocal. This song would soon be Emmy nominated for Daytime Television's best original song. Seventeen brought her release of two cover videos on Youtube. The first was a jazz rendition of Robin Thicke’s "Blurred Lines". It naturally grew to over 1.5 million views, with her take on Peggy Lee’s "Fever" following close behind.

As a singer not only on this song [Christmas For Two], but in all her work, her voice has a timber and character that makes one think of a voice like that of Andrea Wittgens, Norah Jones, or Colbie Callait. Olivia’s voice has a mature tonal quality to it and a special warmth with a sultry yet innocent character to it that will capture your heart and ears… At this stage in her career , the music seems to be defined by strong rhythm sections and very powerful vocals. So don’t shrug off the “fifteen years old” part because her voice is like that of an experience 20-something and one only needs to be reminded that when LeAnn Rimes came out with “Blue” and floored everyone with her mature sounding voice at age 14, they said the same thing with a similar “Wow” effect. Her voice simply commanded respect and admiration.” – Randy Wayne Belt – Starlight Music Chronicles Magazine
At the age of 11, her love of music brought her to the the 2012 auditions for ‘Our Kids Have Talent’ in Vernon, BC Canada, where she secured a top 12 position after singing her renditions of ‘Bubbly’ and ‘Don’t Know Why’ (Colbie Caillat and Norah Jones respectively). Undoubtedly the song choices were a good fit, as she’s consistently compared to both songstresses with her laid back, smoky vocal stylings. At only 13 years old, Olivia wrote and recorded her debut album, releasing it to a sold out crowd at the Powerhouse Theatre in 2013, showcasing not only her writing abilities, but also her charisma as a live performing artist. She gracefully controls the room with her silky voice and gentle demeanour, and carries throughout her songs an endearing quality of honesty.
She’s also proud to have scored her first Top 20 single at Canadian radio in 2015 with her original Christmas song ‘Christmas For Two’ and a music video that reached more than 20k views in just a few short weeks. Olivia went on to secure herself as a Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition with her original song 'Fight for You’, and was brought to Ottawa as a top 10 finalist in the RBC ‘She’s The One’ competition with her original song ‘Ferris Wheel’.
Olivia, now 15, has been working tirelessly on a follow up EP in Los Angeles and Vancouver with a multitude of songwriters including Sony/ATV writer and fellow Canadian chart topper Andrew Allen, Robin Ghosh, writer/producer Josh Cumbee (Madonna, Nick Howard), and she released her follow up single ‘Ferris Wheel’ recorded by hit producer Brian West (Nelly Furtado, Maroon 5, K’naan, Andy Grammer) last May of 2015. Excitingly, she has a new single and a new EP coming out this Spring 2016!
"Music is not just a means of entertainment for me," says Galvin. "It is a way of communicating. It is a way of delivering a message. The world is in desperate need of good stories, meaning, truth and of art, and I want to use the skills I've honed and the opportunities given to me to deliver these things to the people. I want everyone to experience the joy of the same stories that intrigued my young mind into the world of music."
On June 6th, singer-songwriter Dylan Galvin will announce the upcoming release of his new album "Remember to Anyone joining the website's mailing list will get a free downloadof the new song "History." The launch party and show is just the first date in a nationwide tour that will take Galvin all the way to Los Angeles, where he will put down roots and pursue his original music career full time.
After years of playing in a cover band, Galvin realized people yearned for something new, original, and different — and that he had the skill and desire to fulfill that yearning. The lyrics on "Remember to Play" represent the emergence from a several-year period of sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and exhaustion: "Where had those days all gone, silly games and calling names and lazy afternoons? The good ol' days had left him faster than a loosely gripped balloon." His passion had, unfortunately, become his job. He had forgotten how to "play."
A return to youthful exuberance and optimism is therefore the central theme of "Remember to Play." Galvin penned songs that chronicled some of the more important parts of his life, from his parents' divorce to his quarter-life crisis. He included a song called "The Chesapeake," an anthem about the home of almost every precious memory of his young life, the Chesapeake Bay. While personal, the new album is at the same time universal in its appeal to youth, hope and the power of "play."
Hard work has earned Galvin not only a dedicated following of fans, but also hearty praise from critics and industry insiders. "Galvin....brought the house down," said The Washington Post. Meanwhile, Dee Jay Gude of SOMD online has called Galvin "One of the most exciting and talented performers in the Maryland and DC area."

With her stunning voice, beautiful looks and intense drive, Cooper Phillip captures the undivided attention of the eyes and ears around her. Cooper has always been a small town girl with dreams bigger than anyone could fully imagine. Her early years were shaped by being raised by her grandmother and aunt while her mother, a master violin player, toured with various symphonies. That separation led Cooper to take comfort in music at an early age where she was mesmerized by the vocal stylings of Ella Fitzgerald. She learned her songs inside and out, noticing every nuance of Ella’s phrasing and jazz intonations. At 11 years old, Cooper won a vocal competition singing one of Ella’s songs. “Something about being in front of an audience and winning a competition at such a young age only made me more curious and interested in seeing what I could do with my voice” says Cooper. She began singing everyday, taking in the sounds of Barbra Streisand and studying a wide range of artist. At 12 years old, Cooper permanently went to live with her mother. It was a major adjustment but her mother soon realized her daughter had a gift and decided to help expand her music talents. She enrolled Cooper at a music academy where she studied classical piano and theory, harp, ballet and voice. And it was her vocal teacher at the academy who would prove to be the most pivotal in her development when she introduced her to the music of Mariah Carey. Cooper was obsessed. “I would just listen to her for hours upon hours”. She worked diligently to expand her range and control her voice to impress her teachers. She loved the challenge. All along, Cooper had her sights set on the big city. Determined to pursue a career in music, Cooper’s mother let her move to New York at 17. With barely a dollar to her name, she worked and hustled, singing in weddings and clubs and sleeping in the storeroom of a restaurant where she sang. It wasn’t easy but she would not be deterred. After a year in New York, Cooper jumped at an opportunity to sing at a gig in Los Angeles. She never went back. She met Yoni Blondy, a talented young producer who introduced her to Sundafu Kawah of Imaginary Ghost Management. The two clicked right away. With a strong sense of direction, Cooper began pouring her heart into songs she would write for debut Ep called Walk A Mile. Writing several songs with Blondy, she found an outlet to tell her story in songs like Black Box, Silence and title song Walk A Mile. With her natural charisma, limitless talent and genuine like-ability, the word “star quality” is used often when people meet this young girl. The future only seems to be getting brighter as her soaring voice shines and her focused passion continues to grow every step of the way.

ACES is the project from the Brooklyn (by way of Canada) artist Alex Stewart, and her Stranger EP, produced by Ian Miller, conveys her cinematic tone more evocatively than anything she’s done before. A film editor who often works alongside her filmmaker husband, Stewart borrows as much from the vocabulary and structure of that art as she does traditional songwriting. As a writer and musician, Stewart may be seen as a master of stagecraft as much as songcraft. It’s more than a technique; it’s a manifestation of the world she’s creating around her - she builds ACES for herself, but invites the rest of us in.
