There’s nothing like starting off a Monday with some incredible music, am I right? Today I was scrolling through Facebook and a band called The Elovaters (formerly known as The Cornerstone) popped up and after hearing their song “Sunshine”, I became absolutely obsessed.

The band is from the Boston area, according to their Facebook page  they were influenced by Sublime and Bob Marley, which you can definitely hear through their music.

The Elovaters are Reggae/Rock/Funk band hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. The band is fronted by lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Jackson Wetherbee who has toured internationally. The Elovaters also feature musicians formerly of New England Music Award winning bands; The Aldous Collins Band and Last Call. The sound is similar to that of UB40, The Police, Sublime and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their show is fun, energetic and has festive crowds dancing, grooving, and singing along.They have supporting headliners such as Kool and The Gang, Akon, Ballyhoo, Stick Figure, Collie Buddz, Trombone Shorty, The Movement, New Kingston, and Galactic.

So I would suggest that you check them out while they are on tour now because eventually these guys will be filling up concert venues across the country. There is no doubt in my mind about that.

You can find all of their tour dates here! Check out their YouTube , Instagram, and Twitter as well so you never miss a new song from The Elovaters!

Real question though, is it possible to be in a bad mood when you listen to reggae music?

I think that right now we could all use more music like this!

Music Monday : “I Don’t Wait To Live Forever” (Cover) – Jonah Baker

Last week I was flipping through the stations in the Boston area and Mix 104.1 was playing what they call 15 seconds of fame. I heard a beautiful voice flowing through the speakers and immediately I had to hear more of Jonah Baker.

Let me tell you something, Jonah’s voice is absolutely incredible. It almost had a bit of innocence to it but it also kind of reminds me of young Justin Timberlake, which isn’t a bad thing. Think of like NYSNC Justin, and I am straight up obsessed.

Immediately I went to his YouTube channel and listened to all of his covers, then Spotify to listen to his original songs. This guys talent is absolutely out of this world. I would recommend following him on Twitter so you can say that you were a fan when he finally blows up, because his voice is too perfect to not blow up.

I also have to give him credit because he did something that I didn’t think was possible. He made me like “I Don’t Want To Live Forever”.

Today up and coming rapper Chase Stebbins released a visually stunning music video for “10 AM”. The song also features up and coming vocalist Miranda Rose, who has an incredible voice.

Chase is originally from Boston but moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming the next big thing. Clearly he has a lot of talent and I genuinely believe that he will make it. With his rapping ability, play on words, and nice smile, there’s no way he won’t make it. His hustle is also like no other, something you have to respect.

In case you were wondering he has already opened for artists like Big Sean and Jeremih.

Be sure to follow his personal SoundCloud , Twitter, and Facebook for updates!

I know this song was a very personal one for him, so make sure to listen to the lyrics and watch the video in HD!

Music Monday: “10 AM” – Chase

If you remember, Celebrities Are Tragic featured Chase back in May with his song “Love U” and he is back out with another hit, “10 AM”.

Somehow, I don’t know how, but Chase is an unsigned artist with incredible talent. He is an amazing writer and rapper, with songs that come from the heart. It is one of the many reasons why I have been a fan of this artist since day one. His focus on perfecting his craft is extremely impressive and with each new track, he just keeps getting better.

This song is a more personal track for Chase, which he explained to me. “So it was written for a girl I had a one night stand with I had to be at work at 10 am the next day, so it’s all the events leading up to that.” Chase then went on to explain that the girl meant more to him than just a casual hookup, but he moved to Los Angeles and she moved to Colorado.

My absolute favorite line is “I wish I missed my 10 am shift”, why? Everyone has those moments when they have responsibilities they have to take care of and sometimes you wonder what if you stuck around. Would things have changed? Who knows, because you had to take care of those responsibilities.

Big shout out to the female vocalist on the track Miranda Lambert! She sounded incredible!

Chase is going to blow up, I promise. If you are in the Los Angeles area, click on his Facebook line below to find out where he is performing, maybe in an area near you!

Be sure to follow his personal SoundCloud , Twitter, and Facebook for updates and become a fan before he is a household name!

Music Monday: Happiness – Token

So Token is young rapper out of Boston, and he is about to put Boston on the map, I think that it is evident with all of his music, but his newest release “Happiness”, my jaw dropped. I love a song with a story and this is exactly what “Happiness” is. Everyone can relate to this song.

To be honest, Token has a ton of great music, this song was just released today so I thought it was perfect for Music Monday.

Check out his Facebook and Twitter. I promise you that Token has a really bright future ahead of him and we will be hearing from him for a long time coming. Remember Token is only 17 and already has this kind of insight? Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Music Monday: ‘Goodbye My Lover’ Wild Youth

There are some songs that when you hear it, it brings out your emotions. Whether it is the lyrics or the pain in the artists voice, there is something there that can bring you to tears. That is absolutely how I felt when I first heard Wild Youth’s song, ‘Goodbye My Lover’ a twist on James Blunt’s original song.

Everyone has been through some sort of heartbreak and I feel like this song sums it up perfectly.

My absolute favorite line of the entire song has to be “drinking every weekend, speaking sober thoughts”, most people have had that moment when you drink a bit, get some liquid courage and send some risky text messages.

When I asked a summary of this song, Ryne, better known as Wild Youth gave me this summary.

“This one was real, This one was really really real. Love doesn’t hurt but heartbreak just about kills you. I write these songs because i need to write, or because writing will mend something broken inside me or you and bring something back to life in me and my wonderful fans who listen. I don’t make or write these songs for anyone except for myself but the fact that I can touch and help so many people by being vulnerable and actually almost being scared to make my words and life so public by publishing them. But i am glad i do because the messages i receive by people going through the same trials and struggles make putting my weaknesses into my songs worth it just if i can make one lonely person feel like they aren’t alone in there struggles then the hours and hours i put into my craft is not in vein and knowing i can touch people i may have never met is incredible to me. This one goes out to the ones in love, and the ones who are feeling alone in heartbreak, to the ones who have never felt neither love nor heartbreak and the ones who are days away from finding the love of there lives. What a beautifully scary happy messed up special life we get to live. This song is about a love that was so right and that same love lost. I hope you can enjoy or relate!” 

Well, I can say one thing, people definitely can relate to this song, there is no doubt about that one. It is so well written and performed, I can’t emphasis that enough.

Truthfully I don’t think this is the last we have seen of this artist. I just hope that once you hear Wild Youth on the radio you remember that you heard them first here!

For the record, Ryne used to be a part of a group called Thirty100 where they went viral with their ‘Miley Cyrus Virus‘ video, Miley actually gave them a shout out a few years ago for it too!

Music Monday: ‘As Long As You Love Me (Cover)’ Sleeping At Last

So if you have followed my blog at all, you know that I love The Backstreet Boys and not in that 90’s kid nostalgia way. I actually really love their music and all of that stuff. I am a fan. Usually I am not a fan of covers either, until I heard Sleeping At Last‘s cover of their hit song ‘As Long As You Love Me’. The cover was featured on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and oh my god, I didn’t know how emotional I could possibly get. Well put Shonda Rhimes in charge of anything and I will cry.

Honestly I am glad that I found Sleeping At Last because his music is absolutely incredible. Other than the cover he still has so many other songs that are incredible. I highly recommend checking it out because this guy has serious talent.

Music Monday: ‘Red Line Love’ Jenna Lotti

Jenna Lotti

Have you ever heard a voice that is so beautiful it is almost haunting? My lord that is how I felt when I first heard Jenna Lotti‘s voice. Her voice is so original and incredible, I genuinely got chills when I heard it.

Now I have a feeling that eventually we have to hear more from Jenna Lotti, she is absolutely incredible. Apparently she writes her own music too so that is pretty amazing, right? Anyone who can sing and write their own music. I automatically have respect for them.

I posted her video for ‘Red Line Love’ because again it is haunting. The song is so incredible I don’t know how she hasn’t blown up yet. When she does though, remember you heard it here first!

If you know anyone who should be my next #MusicMonday let me know on Twitter or on Facebook.

I had to post ‘Medicine’ too. I think we can all relate to it in some way, the lyrics are beautifully written.

Music Monday: ‘Don’t Go City On Me’ Kane Brown

Just a little disclaimer before I get into this post, if you know any upcoming artists please have them contact me here! I would love for Music Monday to take off!

Now that I got that off of my chest, let’s talk about Kane Brown. My lord this boy has a serious voice. A voice that I could listen to all damn day and never get sick of it. Kane is the real deal, I think that anyone who has heard his lyrics would agree too.

Right now he is starting to blow up a bit due to the song ‘Used To Love You Sober’ and when listening to the lyrics, you can relate to it. Kane is an incredible writer, having that voice just helps. I really can’t say enough good things about this incredibly talented young singer who will soon enough be at the top of the country charts. I posted my favorite song of his, ‘Don’t Go City On Me’, it is so charming and amazing.

I highly recommend you follow him on twitter @KaneBrown and check out his music! He is going to be someone you will want to tell all your friends about so they will thank you for introducing them to his incredible music!
