A Great Big World
With his stripped-down and sweetly devastating rendition of “Dancing On My Own” gaining more than 550 million streams worldwide—as well as earning a Brit Award nomination for Best Single—Scott is now ready to deliver his full-length debut. Made with producers like Fraser T Smith (Adele, Ellie Goulding), Jayson DeZuzio (Skylar Grey, Imagine Dragons), and Oscar Görres (Taylor Swift, Britney Spears), Only Human showcases the tender yet commanding vocal work he’s recently displayed in touring with artists like Emeli Sandé. In releasing his original material for the first time, Scott reveals the rare gift of his songwriting: an intense vulnerability that somehow leaves the listener more hopeful and assured.
Ocean Park Standoff
A band often becomes like a family. Each member’s idiosyncrasies and individuality comprise the collective identity and ultimately give the group a personality of its own. For as different as producer, drummer, and hip-hop head Pete Nappi, UK-born multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and world-renowned DJ Samantha Ronson, and classically trained vocalist and folk singer-songwriter Ethan Thompson might seem at first glance, they quickly turned Ocean Park Standoff into a family upon first joining forces in 2016.
Within a year, Ocean Park Standoff’s music and message made a major splash. Powering their self-titled debut EP, the breakout single “Good News” cracked 16 million Spotify streams within a year as Elvis Duran handpicked the band as his “iHeart Artist of the Month” celebrated by a rousing Today Show performance. They ignited late-night television for the first time on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Between headlining numerous dates, they supported Third Eye Blind and Silversun Pickups on a 2017 summer shed tour. Along the way, they constantly wrote and recorded new music for a string of singles.
In the past few years, Brynn has gone from writing songs on the bathroom floor to playing over 200 shows and signing with Atlantic Records. The musician, who first discovered songwriting as a teenager when she came across her dad’s old guitar in the basement, recently graduated from Harvard University with a mission to share her experiences and philosophical studies through the lens of pop music.
Her debut EP, Time of Our Lives, which arrives later this year, was inspired by Brynn’s time at Harvard and the relationships she’s fostered there. The classes she’s taken for her philosophy major weave their way through the five tracks, each inspired by a different philosopher or set of ideas. Anthemic pop number “Time of Our Lives” draws on Heidegger and existentialism, reminding the listener to be present in the moment, especially when the future remains unknown – as it often does after college.
At 19 years old, Rozzi was discovered by Adam Levine. After hearing a song she had written, Levine created a record label and signed her as his first artist. Soon after, she was sharing the stage with Maroon 5 at some of the most famed arenas across the country and honing in on her live performance. In 2016, Rozzi began her quest for self-discovery. It was then that Rozzi realized that she had been so focused on success that she hadn't been living her life. So, Rozzi started living. Most notably she fell in love for the first time and had her heart broken. She felt things she had never felt before, she found herself, and then she wrote about it. Her debut album will be released later this year through Small Giant Records.
