Hi :) I am a 24 y/o Folk/ Indie-Rock artist from Israel and just released my 3rd single from my debut album "Gold Dust".

After playing in a local rock band for some years I decided to start my solo project in order to give a place to other sides of mine and to expand my work internationally.

Alex Julia Shines on New EP ‘Better Part of Me’ with September 19th Release

Alex Julia, a New Jersey based singer-songwriter, is set for her debut EP release ‘Better Part of Me’ on 09/19/20.  From the stripped down acoustics of “Feeling More,” the guitar-playing conjures a ukulele sound and vibe, complemented with soft vocals.  At other points in the EP, the artist dives into more expansive rock melodies with producer JEAN.  Songs like “It’s Coming” and “What’s Going On” offer up a harder, grungier style, while the singles “Counting Stars” and “Better Part of Me” are influenced by 80s driven pop beats and 90s alternative rock, respectively.  More modern pop influences are layered with funky guitar riffs in “A Beautiful Escape.”

In a class of her own, Alex Julia is unmistakingly original, yet undeniably inspired by artists like Alanis Morissette, Paramore, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.  Emerging primarily from the Asbury Park music scene, Alex has primed herself for a career in music and has been featured on Spotify playlists since summer 2019.  In addition, she has received recognition from Produced by a Girl podcast for rising female artists, and most recently, STAR bREAKER Radio, where she talks about her new EP with producer JEAN.  Alex Julia has shared the stage with such talents as Jarod Clemons and Kolour Story and has regularly played the Jersey Shore Music Festival 5 years straight.

After months-long anticipation of when live music events will resume, Alex Julia plans to book shows again in New Jersey and neighboring towns, in support of her first studio release, as soon as venues reopen.  Look for ‘Better Part of Me’ to hit music streaming platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon) on 09/19/20!  And stay updated on the Alex Julia band page for a schedule of live events:

I hope you’re all doing well during these crazy times.  My name is Noel Smyth and I'm a performing, songwriting musician originally from a town outside New Haven, CT.  I have played in and around the Boston area for the past decade or so where I also teach English Language Arts to seventh and eighth graders. I just finished my fourth full-length album, 'Sugar Suspension'; a collection of 13 of my original songs.  This work includes a vast array of unique musicians living in and around the New England area.  Here is a link to a Boston Globe story about my music and my career!

Something I worked so hard on came out in April despite not having a show to promote it (unless my already rescheduled August 1st show at The Midway or August 13th show at The Burren capriciously and miraculously happen).  My music isn’t red or blue; it’s American.  I have songs on there about my love for New England, my daughter, songs of my suffering, songs of being merry, and songs where I just try to emulate Allen Ginsburg’s stream of consciousness.  Here is a link to a review in the MetroWest Daily News of my new album, "Sugar Suspension"!!

I know you guys are super busy, but if you get a chance, I’d greatly appreciate you taking the time to listen to my music.  I genuinely believe it will be a great fit for your station.  Read a Redline Roots Review that features one of my singles in their series, ‘Singled Out’ Here!!

If there’s any information I’m leaving out please let me know.  My music can be found virtually in any online music store.  If you’d prefer a physical CD, just let me know.  Otherwise, here are my WAV files as well as links to various locations where you can listen to my music and read about (potential) upcoming events.

Music Submission, Cypress

Artist or Band Name: 

Cypress is the indie folk, singer-songwriter project of Ben Higginbotham. Born in Dallas but based in LA, Ben was inspired by his childhood spent glued to the piano and listening to the crooning voices of Texas singer-songwriter legends like Ruthie Foster and Lyle Lovett to pursue his passion for music early on. 

Shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2017, Ben created Cypress — a soulful, emotional solo project reflective of his personal and professional growth. Evoking artists like Ray LaMontagne, Ben Howard, and Hozier, Cypress’ indie folk/folk rock sound is rich and textured yet melodic and straightforward — often weaving lyric-driven stories of relationships, family and coming-of-age with a reflective and nostalgic tone. With crisp, powerful lyrics and relatable, universal themes underlying each song, Cypress’ music shines in its smooth approachability and ease of listening.

Released in November 2018, Cypress’ first EP A Fine Line was recorded and produced in Austin, TX by longtime collaborator Taylor Tatsch. Cypress’ most recent single “Take Me Back” was produced by Floyd Fuji and released in August 2020.
