Top 4 Young Artist Around The Nation

A little over a year ago I had written an article on six local musicians ( check the link attached at end of the article) and bands that I thought were perfect to check out in the New Jersey and Philadelphia area. Now I am back to tell you about local bands on the rise all throughout the nation and that is on my top Spotify and iTunes playlists.

1. Meet Me At The Altar

Meet Me At The Altar is a Bouncy Pop Punk based in the states of Florida, New Jersey, and Georgia. The band consists of drummer Adu Jaurez, guitarist/bassist Tea Campbell and lead singer Edith Johnson. This group gives off the late 2000's vibe that any true pop-punk fan could appreciate. You can check out their latest single Tyranny which has over 50,000 streams or their iTunes page in the link below.

2. Khris Kanker

Christian Munoz other known as Khris Kanker actually made the 2018 list with his group Thyla. (Again, see article attached below.) He made the list as a solo artist this time thanks to his new song Lost In Time Featuring Bri Elzebub. The vibe of this music video alone gives the chills and feels like a breath of fresh air compared to some of the other artists that are around the South Jersey Area. If you are a fan of an underground artist then this video is definitely one I would recommend.

3. American Amnesia Band

This band is currently based in Torrington, Connecticut and formed while they were in high school. They got more serious around 2017 and play at local bars to gain more of an audience so make sure to check out their facebook page to see the next show. The band themselves started off as a pure rock band and later down the road incorporated some hip hop into their setlists. If you are into alternative music they are the right choice for you, On August 10th they dropped a new album No Time for Redemption that you can find on Spotify, YouTube, Sound cloud, and a few other platforms.

4. Ta'Lon Rae

Ta'Lon Rae started rapping back in 2014 during his senior year of high school. He is based in New Jersey and is currently promoting his song "Way You Move" His motivation started when his mom was diagnosed with cancer which played a great deal in motivation to start his career. You can catch him on youtube or to get a glimpse into his rap career you can follow him on Instagram at @taylemstew. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fresh of breath air when it comes to the hip hop and r&b scene.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
