Somegirlnamedanna is the story of Anna, a girl born in a remote area of Minnesota whose imagination flourished without television or social media. Her love of poetry and affinity for artists like Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, and Tori Amos inspired her to write songs while balancing college and bartending, and in 2019, she caught the ear of LAVA's Jason Flom, who personally signed her to a record deal. Anna introduced listeners to her story on her debut EP, twenty one, twenty two , and its lead single, “hello i am.” Other favorites from the project include “seriously just stop,” “monday,”...

News: BMI Indie Spotlight: JAWNY

11 days ago   |   By BMI

Bay Area-bred songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, JAWNY , makes music that lives outside the limits of modern-day “bedroom pop.” A self-taught producer-he started guitar at the age of six-with a knack for creating addictive melodies, he instills each song with raw emotion, humor, and elements of soul, funk, and R&B. Now at work on his debut project for Interscope, JAWNY channels his heart-on-sleeve sincerity and goofball sensibilities into tracks like “Anything You Want” and “4Tounce.” His 2019 single, “Honeypie,” has exceeded 62 million streams on Spotify alone, and his newest release...

News: BMI Indie Spotlight: boyband

11 days ago   |   By BMI

Despite his name, boyband is a one-man musician, hyper-focused on details and committed to producing real art. The Jacksonville native spends upwards of eight hours each day in the studio, creating, crafting, and strengthening his skills, and that work is paying off; boyband is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after producers in Los Angeles. He received a GRAMMY nomination for his fingerprint on Lil Nas X's debut EP, 7, and he has also caught the attention of both Young Thug and Gunna. His first album, alone in a boyband , smudges the lines between pop, punk, emo, indie, and hip-hop...

11 days ago   |   By BMI

Sebastian Paul is a young singer/songwriter who bills himself as “first place in the rat race,” using his upbringing in a military family as a source of inspiration for his unique brand of music. He spent his early years relocating so often that even now, he doesn't claim a specific city of origin, saying, “moving like that, you met every kind of person. It forces you to become well-rounded and you're exposed to many more experiences than most people are afforded.” His official foray into the music scene was with his 2018 EP, TROJAN HORSE , and last year, he dropped the BOY OH BOY EP...
