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.

The song is an encouragement to never give up regardless of what people say, think, see, feel, about us and do to us. It also does not matter how much life throws at us, we must keep our heads up and never give up for we are engaged in a race which we ought to finish; this mindset is what will give us the strength necessary to finish the race.

Song Title:
Living Color
 
 
Song Description:
 
This song is called "Living Color". I don't really have a concrete reason why I named it that but when I heard the beat and started writing the song it made me wanna rap about living up to what I know I can be. It also put me in the mind of like 90's music/early 2000's around the time In Living Color came out. My witty, unique, clever style was perfect for this Kjs beat as I slice through the beat reminiscing on the days I first started rapping when I "had the futon cover the mic back in 2010". This song is truly for the real lovers of true, authentic, laid back but yet original and raw hip hop fans. The song is out now on soundcloud and is schedule for release on: Spotify, Itunes, Pandora, Apple Music, Deezer, as well as other digital platforms on November 2, 2019. That is also the date I will be shooting a video for it. Which will release shortly after that.

Music Submission, MONO

Artist or Band Name: 
MONO

MONO is a 31-year-old Peruvian independent artist who began his career in music as a producer and songwriter of electronic and synthpop in 2011. His first record was the EP "Nonsense", a homemade self-produced work edited by local label Dorog Records. In 2013, after an extensive learning and musical research process, MONO releases "Dancing With The Devil", his first production recorded in a professional studio. An electronic and synthpop song with clear influence of bands like Depeche Mode and Erasure, to name a few. Aside with this release began a series of live performances in Lima, where the artist participation stands out, for two years consecutively, during the Fiesta de la Música, one of the most important musical events in the capital of Peru organized by the French Alliance of Lima and the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima.

By the following years, other live performances would come in local bars and cultural centers; and then the release of "One Night Song", a live recorded song for a music contest that received great acceptance by MONO's fans, as well as specialized media.

In 2015, MONO entered a professional studio for the second time, this time by the renowned Peruvian producer Alejandro León (Ezio Oliva, Gala Brie, Bus, Kanaku & El Tigre), to record his first album under the codename of “ remonition. " The first single from this project is titled "Break Me" and was released at the end of 2016. This urban genre song; a mix between pop and contemporary R&B and electronic sounds, shows a much more mature side of the artist, where he convinces not only vocally, but also with risky lyrics and catchy and very well orchestrated melodies.

At the beginning of 2017, the official music video for “Break Me” was released, filmed in Lima and directed by the novel filmmaker Paola Teran. The clip received great reception by fans and local media, becoming part of the programming of open signal and cable television music channels, such as Movistar Music and Canal ipe.

"Emotions (Tell Me)", the second promotional song of this artist's musical phase, will come in the same year. A tropical cut production that follows the line of electronic music hits from producers like Dj Snake, Kygo, among others.

Then in 2018, and after a few months of hiatus, MONO releases “Blood Diamond”, the artist's favorite track and what he considers his most personal work so far. This song, of intense lyrics and melancholic melody, metaphorically portrays some passages of complicated love relationships, emphasizing the ephemeral nature of life and love after death.

It is not until the beginning of 2019 that MONO's first album, “High Anxiety” sees the light. This LP composed of eight songs, all of the authorship of the singer and produced in Big Monster studio by Alejandro Leon, is the product of almost 2 years of intense and creative work, whose process, mostly night recording sessions, means for the artist the most satisfactory project and catalyst that has had to live to date.

The songs "A Little Closer", "Rollercoaster", "Cold Hands", "U" and "The Silence" complete the list of this debut album. The last one is part of the promotion that MONO is doing aside with the album in different media in Peru and abroad. The good reception of both productions has led the artist to be part of different playlists, blogs and radios from countries such as Mexico, Spain, Colombia, Chile and the United States.
