3 Rising Artists You Can't Miss This Year At Firefly

These up and coming musicians will not disappoint.

3 Rising Artists You Can't Miss This Year At Firefly

Firefly Music Festival is known for hosting bands with an iconic image, such as Mumford and Sons and Kings of Leon which bring in a huge fan base to this festival. This year, Firefly will host major headliners Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd, and Bob Dylan.

Along with these well-known artists across the world, Firefly has invited three up and coming musicians that have the potential to truly make a name for themselves. Among these aspiring artists is MAGIC GIANT. Austin Bisnow, Zambricki Li, and Zang are the main components for making the magic happen in the band. Their sound is on the alternative or indie side of the spectrum, but there is something else that really sets them apart from most bands. They added another “member” that is essential to their sound; which is, nature. On the band’s website, Zambricki explains that the band was scheduled to play several Music Festivals “that just so happened to be in really beautiful parts of the country.” This ignited inspiration within the band to buy a shuttle bus and transform it into a “solar-powered mobile recording studio.” They wanted the ability to capture what they were feeling in any given moment based off the sights they saw or sounds they heard within nature. There was one instance when the band was able to record sounds of the wind outside as they were traveling with microphones from the solar powered bus. This eccentric and distinct method of recording is what makes Magic Giant thrive. They are truly on the rise as their hit song "Set on Fire” reached #4 on Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50.

Speaking of hit’s, there is another artist coming to Firefly that certainly has made her mark across the world. Rozescaptured the attention of millions last year when she was featured on the song "Roses" by the Chainsmokers. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rozes has achieved incredible success with some of her hit singles that were initially released in 2014: "R U Mine" and "In and Out" which have millions of views on Sound Cloud. Rozes gained recognition in the industry with the collaboration with the Chainsmokers, as it landed a spot on the Billboard Top 100 List. Rozes truly has made her mark in the music industry, and is hungry for more success.

Misterwives is the third can't miss artist this year at Firefly. Mandy Lee, William Hehir, Etienne Bowler, Marc Campbell, Jesse Blum, and Mike Murphy are the members of this indie-pop band based out of New York City. With their debut album "Our Own House" released in 2015, the band has opened for acclaimed bands such as Panic at the Disco and 21 Pilots. They recently released an album this May entitled, "Connect the Dots," that is available on Spotify and i-Tunes.

Though Firefly tends to emphasize it's headliners, each act that is preforming has immense talent. Magic Giant, Rozes, and Misterwives are among these, and will put on an epic show!

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
