California’s Sweetheart, Joselyn Sky

Introducing Joselyn Sky a tremendously talented young lady originality from Colorado, but now resides in California. Joselyn is skilled in multiple instruments which she uses together with a sweet-toned voice, to delight all who listens. She is a true charmer, her smiles will melt even the coldest hearts. When she is performing, her entire being is glistening lighting up the lives of everyone. If a person is feeling down, all one needs to do is pull up Joselyn’s videos and their day will change to one filled with joy.


Currently Joselyn plays three different instruments, piano, harp and ukulele. She started out on the piano when she was four, then ukulele at six, and harp at age eight. Playing her instruments is what she loves, but neither is a favorite, they are all special to her. She loves the piano because she has been playing it the longest and it has come to feel like it’s part of her. The ukulele is easy for her to play and has learned many songs on it. It is also easy to take places. The harp is unique she says and even when you mess up it sounds like angels.

Joselyn says she started singing with her mom before she could talk. Her parents would put her in front of the stereo before she could crawl, turn on the music and she would conduct. Joselyn literally had her first singing experience on stage when she was six. Her story about her first time on stage is as cute as can be, and no one can tell it better than Joselyn herself. Here is what she had to say; When I was six years old, I was at The St. Julien in Boulder, Colorado, where I grew up. There was live music there and my grandma said, ‘Oh Jossy, it’s too bad you can’t go up on stage and sing with them.’ I jumped up out of my seat to run up to the stage and she grabbed me by my shirt and said, ‘Oh no… I didn’t mean it. I was just kidding.’ I slapped her hand away and said, ‘Well I WASN’T!!!’ So I ran up to the stage and asked if I could go get my ukulele out of the car and play a song with them. The lead singer asked me what songs I knew, and I said Hallelujah. He asked me what the first chord was, and I said, ‘C’. Then he asked me what the last chord was, and I said, ‘C’. He shrugged his shoulders and said ‘Okay.’ That was my first time on stage and I loved it!!! I wasn’t afraid at all. It was just fun.” There’s no doubt everyone there was smiling from ear to ear and cheering her on. It would have been a treat to have been there that day.

One of the best times she has had on stage is when she was performing with Michael Franti at White Rock Music Festival in front of three thousand people. For Joselyn it was an awesome experience to be on stage with him. “I wish I could play with him again because it was incredible and there are no words to explain the amazing feeling I had inside of me when I played on stage with him” says Joselyn. She hopes to be able to play at Live Oak, another music festival she goes to.

A dream of her’s is to one day meet Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Joselyn plays so many of their songs it would mean a great deal to meet them. Another favorite she would like to meet is Willie Nelson.

Joselyn has a huge repertoire of songs, but there’s a few that stands out as favorites to her. One of her favorites to sing and play on the ukulele is Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show and Bob Dylan. She says it’s a fun and catchy song. On piano she loves Ophelia by The Lumineers. “You can just be so in the music in that song it feels like you are the song” says Joselyn. On harp she loves to play and sing Life Is Better With You by Michael Franti. She says this song is so sweet, and she loves to play it for her mom and dad.

If you live out in her area, she will be on a local radio show on the 23rd of January. She also goes to farmer’s markets a lot and busk. She says she is saving up for a style 2000 Lyon and Healy pedal harp.


When she’s singing is when she feels most like herself. “It just feels like who I am” says Joselyn. There’s nothing she loves more than music. She hopes when she grows up, she can be a musician.

Joselyn is working hard to make her dreams come true. Not only is she learning more songs, she is writing them as well. To this date she has written three songs. One is about her dog Lupe. Another is about her best friend Aurelia who moved to France for a year. All of her ideas comes from the things happening in her life.

Joselyn is a beautiful girl inside and out. She has the magic in her to warm and sooth any soul. The love she holds for music, and is without doubt, she will fulfill her dream. In fulfilling that dream she will brighten many lives along her journey. She is a true testament to what music and happiness really is.

Spain’s Hit New Pop Artist, Charlotte Summers

 

 

Spain’s new hit pop artist Charlotte Summer has been mesmerizing people from Spain to American with her magnificent voice. At just twelve years old Charlotte already has a smash hit out called, Unicorn. This song was originally written for a Eurovision entry for Malta by Greek singer/songwriter Gorgi and Swedish composers Ylva and Linda, but was not chosen for the entry. The song was then adapted for Charlotte for a festival in Italy. She has won best original song and best singer in her category. It is now out as her first single.

Unicorn is a fitting song for Charlotte. The song itself is beautiful, but “Unicorn” has always meant much more. A Unicorn is a beautiful, wondrous and magical animal, it has been known to light a girl’s heart and imagination. This also describes Charlotte. Her voice has the beauty that is needed for a song like Unicorn. She has captured the essence of the song perfectly igniting the imagination of those who listen and magically takes the listener into the story.  No other person could have delivered this song the way she has done. The song may not have originally been for her, but destiny knew who needed to sing it. This song does mean a great deal to her. “It is very special to me as it is a beautiful song and a lot of people really like it” says Charlotte. 

A stunning video was made for Unicorn which not only shows her beauty, but the beauty in the location. It was filmed in Marbella Spain by the sea. Charlotte says, it’s where the Unicorns live. The location is shown as a magical place, all one needs to do is believe and you can see the Unicorn. I believe, she “is” the Unicorn. The beauty, the magic, it is her,  she opens a person’s imagination. 

Most of the world didn’t know anything of Charlotte until a video went viral. In the video she was getting her hair done and started singing her song Unicorn. The majority of us didn’t realize that it was her own song at the time. She belted out the song so perfectly that everyone instantly loved her. She then became a worldwide favorite, leaving everyone asking, “who is that girl”? It turns out that her hairdresser asked her to sing, video taped it and put it on their Instagram. Once people began learning who she was, they flocked to her music loving everything she sang. 

For many, it was the viral video that introduced them to Charlotte, but this was not the beginning.  She first started singing at about six or seven years of age. She began performing at her primary school, St. George in San Pedro de Alcantara. At school they would often do shows for their parents. The boys and girls in the class would go on stage and sing, act and dance. From this she has moved on to other great things. Charlotte was in Les Miserables in Malaga, Spain. Then she appeared on La Voz Kids then went on to win a talent contest in Malaga, Spain. After all of this she was on a program called, Fenomeno Fan, this show was shown in Spain and South America. She will be on TV in North America soon. “That was really cool to go and record in LA” says Charlotte. 

Being a singer is about bringing happiness to others as well as yourself. Charlotte is this person, the happiness and passion can be heard in each of her songs. Like most singers, she too has favorites she likes to sing. Aside from Unicorn, she likes, It’s A Man’s World and One Night Only. She likes It’s A Man’s World because, “I feel the song is so true and beautiful” says Charlotte. And One Night Only she says, “It is a very soulful, and it has lots of places where I can let out powerful notes”. 

Charlotte is beginning to take her music to the next level with her new single, Lifting Me Up. She co-wrote the song with a composer from England named Alex. When it comes to songwriting, she doesn’t really know where the ideas come from, she says things just come to her. “I play piano so I create melodies and from that the lyrics” says Charlotte. 

There’s much love for music in Charlotte’s life, but she enjoys many of the other things too. She loves gymnastics and animals. Charlotte also enjoys movies, hanging out with friends and dancing all the normal stuff anyone her age would enjoy doing. To do what Charlotte loves  takes a lot of support, and she gets tons of it from her parents and sister, Renee. 

Anyone can search through Charlotte’s music and listen to her progression, she started off good, now she is “brilliant”. Charlotte has been granted a gift, and she uses that gift to delight others in the songs she sings. The power and precision that she uses is exceptional, no one can help but be drawn into the story she is telling. She is truly magical, just like the Unicorn. 

 

Spencer

Wow! What a great new artist coming up the ranks, Spencer. If you have never seen or heard Spencer, you are truly missing out. He is making a lot of noise and the noise has gotten louder with the release of his new music video, “Whatever”.  Spotify unveiled his new single on the Billboard in Times square.  

“Whatever”, is a love song about a girl that’s really special. This song has great meaning to Spencer. “There may be other girls you may have occasionally messed around with on and off, but they don’t really matter because you always come back to the perfect girl”, says Spencer.  This song would be a great one to dedicate to that special someone letting them know they are truly the perfect person. 

The video for “Whatever” brings the story in the song to life, with many special moments throughout. The video was shot all throughout LA wandering about the city. In the making of the video a few scenes they had a large crew involved, but for other shots he ditched the crew. For them to just take off and leave the crew, Spencer felt more of the authenticity that he wanted would be captured. He was correct, the realism is there. 



When preparing to shoot the video, Spencer wanted something different that made a statement, he got it. It was decided it would be shot with a cell phone. This was a brilliant idea. This is how these special moments would have been captured by anyone out on the town having fun. It gave it more life.  Spencer says, the director GAB3 was the genius behind the video. He also says, he and his manager J, GAB3 collaborated on the original concept, but made up a few scenes as they went along. 

Spencer is back in the studio working on more songs. Be on the lookout for more to be released. He also has several live shows coming up and more videos. His fans can follow him on Twitter and Instagram

Inspiring people to be themselves and bring out their true personalities is something he hopes to accomplish. Spencer says, “Life is too short to cover up the real you”.

Pop Artist Caroline Grace Debuts Her Single “Show Me”

Caroline Grace has debuted her new single, “Show Me”, and stealing people’s hearts. Show Me, is a song where she throws her vulnerability out on the table. If her soothing voice doesn’t capture you, her puppy dog eyes in the video will certainly do the trick. She is a true artist to be able to project how vulnerable she can be vocally and then bring it to life on camera.  This song could be interpreted in different ways, but anyone looking for a love song for their significant other, this is it. Who could, resist!

This past July, Caroline and Poo Bear (Jason Boyd) got together to record a few singles, and Show Me is one of those singles. She said, Poo Bear had the initial idea, and they built the song from there. This song means a lot to Caroline. “There have been times in my life I have found myself deviating from my own path. Show Me is sort of intro prospective plea to remind myself of who I am and what I stand for, ” she said. She was also saying, “being such a beautiful song, it can be applied to various other circumstances”. Her thoughts are, it can be listened to as a love song between two people, a song about loving oneself, or even a worship song. “That’s the goal in all of my music, to utilize my own vulnerability to relate to other people in any way that I can and let them know that they aren’t alone,” she said. 

Throughout the process of writing and producing, “Show Me” she had the great pleasure of working with Poo Bear. Poo Bear (Jason Boyd) recently wrote and produced on Justin Bieber’s entire, Purpose, album. Caroline says working with him was incredible. “When you walk into a room to work with a guy like that, you can’t help but be intimidated. However, his kind, goofy and humble persona quickly snapped that away, and I felt like I was in the studio with my best friend,” she said. She says, his work ethic is so inspiring, you can tell how deep is passion for music goes. She hopes to continue to work with him throughout her career. 



Show Me, is a powerful single which she debuted. The song showcases different aspects of her vocals, character, realization, emotion, depth, and of course vulnerability. This gives an insight into what to expect when her first EP is released. Yes that’s right, an EP is being worked on. There will be a variety of songs ranging from acoustic to, very radio pop. She says, the consistency of the EP will be in the lyrics. “The project is a body of work that will very much relate to the place in life I am currently in and experiences I am having,” she said. There will be some great collaborations on the EP, but for now who they are, must remain under wraps. It will be exciting. She says, she wants all of her music to invoke emotion by pouring her heart into every song she records. “I truly believe that if I pour everything I have into my music, the listener will feel something too,” she said.   

Caroline had a desire  for music since she was a little kid and knew that is what she wanted to do. However, when she started at USC is when she decided to immerse herself into her career wholeheartedly. What a great decision she made, it would have been a shame for the music world to miss out on a great creative talent such as Caroline. Now that the decision was made, and her music being realized, her music will touch millions.

Internet Star And Nashville Recording Artist, Jadyn Rylee

Exceptional things happen, to exceptional people, this happens to be a true fact, when talking about Jadyn. Already at her young age, she has an understanding of songs, that many people unfortunately never get. You wouldn’t think someone of her age would have the delivery, and  perception of songs, that is found and understood in her performances, but they are. The way she sings, is that of a much older and seasoned artist, but yet here she is stunning people with every song at just eleven years old. Jadyn, and the way she performs a song, has become an infection on the internet. She has gained internet stardom.

Jadyn’s fame, and audience grows larger by the day, with her videos reaching into the millions. One of these songs that has gotten a great deal of attention is, The Sound of Silence. This video has soared to well over four million in just barely three months. Her delivery of the song has a dark and haunting vibe to her voice, and people has gone crazy over it. Jadyn really liked this song. “The song was so deep and loud, it was fun trying to learn it” says Jadyn. Jadyn has been doing projects with Sina, and it was Sina’s dad Mike Wilbury and Rick Benbow who chose the song, The Sound of Silence. They felt people would love it, and they did in a big way. 

Jadyn and Sina make a good team. Jadyn says she’s glad they found each other. “She is helpful with ideas and her drumming in our songs” says Jadyn. Currently they have three recordings together, The Sound of Silence, Nothing Else Matters, and Go Your Own Way. Plans to work on more videos together, is in the works. Jadyn hopes they will start working on something soon. 



In June, Jadyn packed up and headed out to Nashville to write and record her very own songs. In Nashville she worked with legendary writer and guitarist Curt Ryle of Big Matador Records. While there they wrote three songs, and she loved the experience. “The experience was amazing because I have never had the chance to work with anyone who helped me write songs before, and I can’t believe we wrote three” Jadyn says. 

Her newest release is one of the songs written and recorded in Nashville called, Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover. This is an anti-bullying song, and it was important to her to write. “I wanted to write a song that touched people and a song that kids could look up to, especially if they had been bullied before” says Jadyn. She has been bullied herself, but not as bad as some of her friends. She wanted to let her friends and everyone to see that bullying wasn’t alright and shouldn’t be allow. “We are all human and supposed to be equal and no one deserves to be hurt like that” says Jadyn.  She hopes to do more songs like that in the future. The song has a lot of meaning that sends out a good message, and her delivery of it is unbelievable. Brilliant!

Another song they wrote is called, Virtual Reality. The song is fun and bouncy and makes you want to dance. It also mentions Arianna Grande and Jadyn hopes one day Arianna will hear it. The song is about being a kid and enjoying life. Everyone will love this song. For now her third song will remain under wraps, but I can tell you, it’s going to blow your mind. 

Writing with Curt was amazing, she says. “He helped me write the lyrics, and then recorded his guitar for all of the songs. It was so much fun” says Jadyn. While in Nashville writing with Curt they stayed at his home, and something clicked with the two of them that created a good bond. Curt was amazed at the things she was able to do in the studio, and one of the things was how high she could sing. He teasingly nicknamed her, Little Freak. “The funniest part about recording in Nashville was when we would get ready to record we would first have breakfast and then go down to the studio, every morning Curt would say “Well good morning little freak” it was so funny” Jadyn says. She can’t wait to go back. On all of her recordings, she sang all of the harmonies, and Curt said he had never met anyone who could do harmonies as well as Jadyn. 

Music means the world to her and loves every aspect of it. Jadyn has met and worked with a lot of amazing people, Curt, Mike, Rick, Sina, and Andre she loves them all. She loves her singing coach as well, Sarah Hyde. “Sarah has taught me so much and has always told me that I can do this and I do it well” says Jadyn. Her coach is correct, she can do and does it well. 

Jadyn is an exceptional person in the way she grasps lyrics, and creativity she puts in her songs. She has become well known, but not just who she is, but the way she sings a song. The people that follow her music are loyal listeners and can’t wait for a new song. With all she has accomplished in just a short time, it is obvious she will become larger than life. The world audience loves her.
