Welcome to September! Welcome to the Fall!

My name is Maryjessie, a neo-soul low-fi artist based in L.A. I’m here to introduce you to my debut EP, “Welcome to September." This EP is centered around a feeling of beginnings as well as of nostalgia. A combination of my reflections on the past, my love for the present and my hopes for the future. 

Why September? Well, school starts in September. My birthday is in September. “September” by Earth Wind and Fire is my jam. Autumn is my favorite season… the list goes on… you get the point. In short, September is the month for me.

And this past September, I turned 21, entering my junior year of college. As I embraced this process of becoming an adult, I wanted to make music that was reflective of this journey. Through the course of a day in September, this EP touches on themes of self-actualization, childhood wonder, existential melancholy, love and acceptance. 

You see, I’m just an ant out here trying to learn something. Trying to learn about STEM as I pursue my engineering degree at Harvey Mudd College; to learn from my friends and family; to learn from my extracurriculars--whether that be running or teaching STEM; and to learn from hardships and opportunities. I take all that I have learned to shape my worldview. A worldview I explore through my creative writing and music. 

Having lived in the Bay Area, the Northeast, the DMV, and L.A. (as well as having Haitian-American and Cape-Verdean-American parents), I draw upon diverse and eclectic musical inspirations that influence my sound. A sound I use to articulate my worldview.

Alas, the world of music!  Creation is WONDERFUL.  Advertisement and hosting is a pain in patootie!  In 2018, I took it upon myself to join the "distributing-via-paying-a-distributor-to-distribute-beautiful-music," world that is mostly inhabited by, "distributing-via-paying-a-distributor-to-distribute-YUCK," but didn't know the latter would be my cue a year later to STOP paying for distribution.  My music is beautiful and I refuse to pay for it to be lost in a sea of trash.  Upon stopping payments to my distributor after one full year of distribution, i found my music is entirely greyed out everywhere due to such naughty and unseemly behavior.

I have reclaimed my authority to distribute by whatever means necessary my music.  I hope the world will enjoy.

You may find me on YouTube, Sound Cloud and KKarlsson.com

Music Submission, Two Hats Blues Band

Artist or Band Name: 
Two Hats Blues Band

The concept of the Two Hats Blues Band came to Rambling Rob in a vision.

Lying in that hospital in Rovaniemi, he had seen it all - a blues band like no other; 

combining slide fingerpicking guitar mastery with porch stomping foot 

percussion, wailing blues harp and thumping double bass. 

Three of them, howling in harmony, swirling echoes of country, bluegrass, gospel 

and R & B, creating an evocative vocal sound all of their own. 

Using old, primitive tools from an era before electricity took hold, channeling

everything that came from the blues, back into the blues. 

From the Mississippi to the Irwell, strange currents and tides flow through these 

songs. Feelings of euphoria and desolation, soaking and reviving dusty old ideas, 

making them shimmer in the sunshine stolen from other lands, other times.

Music Submission, Jamie Alimorad

Artist or Band Name: 
Jamie Alimorad

Light first dawned on Jamie Alimorad's prodigal artistry in Boston's underground music circuit, while attending Northeastern University. From those humble beginnings, Alimorad dedicated himself to honing his craft as a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His time at Northeastern proved invaluable, culminating in a Bachelor of Science in Music Technology, and a blossoming career.

Upon graduating, his music began trickling out from Boston's indie scene and out into the world at large. He independently released two albums (Cornerstone and Words Left Unsaid) that garnered enough success to warrant his first nationwide tour, taking him through cities, including, New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. The tour's success led to the 2014 music video for Words Left Unsaid single "Beautiful" hitting over 2 million views on YouTube.

Alimorad has spent the past four years writing and recording new material for his hotly anticipated 2019 release, This Is Tomorrow Calling. Teaming up with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer Gino Vannelli, and Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Ross Vannelli, the trio have crafted a collection of vocal-centric pop music, that has more than its fair share of innovative twists, and turns, fueled by Alimorad's effusive passion towards fusing genres. The album tells Alimorad's coming-of-age story of the years of an artist growing in an ever-changing world, and emerging from his cocoon, fully stretching his wings as a songwriter, musician, and vocalist.
