Music Submission, Klara McDonnell

Artist or Band Name: 
Klara McDonnell

She’s an Irish singer/songwriter, an actress, and she’s got her fingers in as many creative pies as she can find – some of which enrich her bank account, and some that simply enrich her creative soul. Over the last decade, she has been one of Ireland’s busiest life drawing models, posing for artists throughout the country. 

Her new single “Dusty Glitter” is a shuffling country romp with production from frequent collaborators Beardfire Music Production Studio. 

The song appears to take itself less seriously than 2019’s previous singles the more sombre “Sinking Unknowing” and “Wasted”, both of which gained her a new support network at independent radio in Ireland and further afield – as well as stellar reviews. 

While the lyrics are tongue-in-cheek and the delivery is playful, there’s a certain vulnerability and sadness beneath the bubbly banjo backdrop. 

Klara explains, “lyrics like I’m not inclined to shine, like the gems you’re used to, refer to people setting certain standards and putting conditions on who they would start a relationship with. The protagonist of the song is a wild woman who thinks she is leading a man whom she thinks is too good for her astray. “

“I’ll take your plans, and tear them all apart”, she sings in the song’s chorus – and you get the feeling that this sentence could be Klara’s mission statement, applicable to anyone who thinks they’re in the driver seat when it comes to her career.

Colby Dean

Born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colby Dean comes from the honest roots of Western Montana. He picked up guitar at age 13, and instantly began composing original material. Dean recorded his first songs with a single microphone, and distributed the copies to schoolmates (and their mothers). During the early days, Dean learned guitar, bass, drums, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, and more.

Five years later, at age 18, Dean moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he became inspired by the multitude of musicians in the city. This led him to realize his true love of songwriting. Dean spent his time in Nashville performing with his peers, and writing with a few good legends. After two years, Dean parted ways with Music City, and began his touring career.

Now with no home address, music has taken Dean through tours of Europe, Southeast Asia, North America, and Australia. The ‘Colby Dean EP’ is comprised of five songs. The first single from the record, ’Will I Go’, was filmed entirely in Sydney, Australia, and has found success in international indie music scenes.

Dean is currently in Southeast Asia promoting his latest release.

Music Submission, Lhasa

Lhasa - Birdsong - single
Artist or Band Name: 
Lhasa

New Zealand-based indie folk duo, Lhasa, are the result of two completely different worlds colliding. One from a sleepy, small city in New Zealand, while the other grew up in one of the biggest cities in China. The duo come together as a marriage of different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences to create something unique, punchy, and eager to be heard.

Samuel and Micaela met at music school and began writing songs together in 2017, forming Lhasa. After penning their first song, ‘Birdsong’, they knew that they were onto something special. Like the coming together of two completely different lives, their music is a combination of an organic acoustic sound and a penchant for rock music. Their striking harmonies and poetic songwriting provide an immersive, emotional experience.
