  • Signing Story: Soren Bryce - Music Connection Magazine
    Erin Culley who in turn forwarded the brightly confessional tracks to independent music manager Beth Narducci Beth called me saying she really liked what she heard says Bryce I was only 14 and she was clearly interested in helping me progress She encouraged me to explore a more hook driven approach That really changed how I write It doesn t take the therapy aspect out of it but it made my songs more relatable She encouraged me to explore a more hook driven approach Because of Bryce s age Narducci originally thought she could develop into a Disney pop person Bryce s words but the more somber soulful material that the young artist wrote changed that vision completely Bryce s compositions proved so compelling that she raised 10 000 on PledgeMusic to record her debut EP Narducci reached out to Kahne who asked her to home record demos of a handful of her favorites he then signed on to produce the EP Bryce used some of her crowdfunding money to pay for her trip to NYC By that time Narducci was also working in A R for Washington Square Music Bryce met with her and others at the label and its parent company Razor Tie while recording the album and soon inked a deal Everything came together really quickly says Bryce who recently toured with Norwegian indie pop singer Mr Little Jeans Beth has always championed me and I immediately loved the vibe at the label Everyone there works really hard for me and genuinely cares about helping my career develop Photo by Kristen Burns For more of Music Connection s Signing Stories click HERE Tags razor tie Soren Bryce Washington Square Music Previous Story Live Review Billy Lawler at the Viper Next Story President Obama and First Lady Announced

  • Signing Story: Conrad Sewell - Music Connection Magazine
    only one problem Most of the songs I wrote before were pretty shitty Obviously Sewell had to up his game He started working with the best songwriters he could find I learned a lot from them he says Indeed he did so well he scored a deal with Universal Music Publishing and moved to Los Angeles There he met Jamie Hartman who had worked with Christina Aguilera Emma Bun ton Joss Stone Jason Mraz Anastacia and Natalie Imbruglia Sewell raves Jamie was the first person to challenge me and that made me a better writer and artist I came to the conclusion that songwriting would get me to the next level With strong songs a striking image and soulful vocals Sewell signed with Electric Feel Management who introduced him to 300 Entertainment I went to Lyor Cohen s house founder and CEO of 300 Entertainment and showcased for him Cohen is a 30 year music industry veteran with an impressive track record as a label executive at Def Jam and Warner Music Group We hit it off Sewell exclaims Lyor is such a pitbull I knew he would never give up on what I m trying to do he asserts I felt very comfortable signing with his new label Since then Sewell has become a YouTube sensation with millions of views and toured with Ed Sheeran There was however one quirk in his ascent his image as a long haired pretty boy You know he says whatever people want to cling on to is fine with me More important is Sewell s attitude and perspective I wasn t ready before But now I m ready to be myself I know what I want to say and how I want my music to affect people I m finally ready to live

  • Signing Story: Waterparks - Music Connection Magazine
    dang okay You guys do check your stuff They re so smart and they ve already done it so they know what to do and what not to do It was all very quick after that and the label outfitted the group with a deal that allows the artists to maintain creative control of their previous two releases their musical direction and even the design aspects Much to the delight of Knight who doubles as the band s graphic designer We can still do whatever which is nice As far as all the new music that we ve been making in my room and stuff they like everything he explains We were a little worried about that because obviously the more control you have over things in general the better While working along with EVR on a routine search for producers to work with Waterparks ended up with a new management deal with none other than Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte two of Knight s role models Read More Kobalt Signs Worldwide Agreement with Good Charlotte It s awesome because they re so smart and they ve already done it so they know what to do and what not to do he says They also do the coolest stuff for us like premiere our video on Billboard Waterparks worked with EVR on their debut studio full length They supported Never Shout Never on tour during the beginning of 2016 and released their EP Cluster on Jan 15 And for those of you still wondering Knight succeeded in getting his nude ID photo For more Music Connection Signing Stories click HERE Tags Awsten Knight Cluster equal vision records EVR Waterparks Previous Story New Gear Review NS Design CR4 RADIUS Next Story CD Baby Announces Early Bird Tickets for 2nd

  • Songwriter Profile: Brody Brown (Bruno Mars, Adele, Mark Ronson) - Music Connection Magazine
    what my mom would play all day every day And on Sunday it was gospel He also says that growing up in Compton CA The real part of Compton he clarifies gave him the impetus to do music He says that this pursuit was a last resort that kept him from becoming another statistic in a hard neighborhood The eminent publishing executive Steve Lindsey who signed Brown when he was 17 hooked him up with Bruno Mars I met Steve through a friend says Brown He taught me a lot it was like going to school He signed JR Rotem Mike Elizondo and Kara DioGuardi so everything he touches strikes a little bit of gold Do you want a record or do you want a hit record That is his question Collaborating with Mars and others Brown co wrote Snoop Dogg Wiz Khalifa s Young Wild Free feat Bruno Mars Fuck You recorded by CeeLo Green Mark Ronson s Feel Right feat Mystikal from the Grammy nominated Uptown Special Young Thug s Pacifier and the six time Grammy nominated Bruno Mars hit Grenade For Adele Brown co wrote the stunning All I Ask from her stratospherically successful 25 with Mars Philip Lawrence and the artist Although they collaborated on two songs the ballad was the one selected for the release Brown is certainly fine with that Adele she s wonderful he enthuses Her voice is amazing of course She can reach the four corners of this earth with no mic All I Ask is a standard There is nothing overthought or overproduced just piano and vocal We wanted to grab the essence of a Whitney Houston ballad just a great song And for Adele she is expressing the truth He appreciates what he notes is a rising trend of emotional authenticity in modern music It s coming back to the real thing EDM electronic dance music had its thing going on but with a record you need more factors If you can sing a song at a wedding a graduation a funeral or a birthday that s important If you have three out of four you re good In addition to Mars forthcoming release other projects orbiting around Brody include Alicia Keys Young Jeezy and Casey Veggies He is also the executive producer of a project for the Danish soul band Lukas Graham Another star in the Brody Brown constellation is his own artist endeavor a band that he calls Groovy Maniacs He explains It s a blast from the past We are doing 80s pop dance Think Don Johnson Miami Vice Parliament George Clinton Prince meets Duran Duran and Queen This is music that a lot of people are scared of To bring back the authentic sounds like the Linn Drum the ADSR Attack Decay Sustain Release Juno and outboard gear We re not programming or DJing We re doing it in our way It s going to make you feel like 1985 even though I wasn t born
