24-year-old R&B/Pop singer, songwriter, and performer, Bailly Castillo of southeastern Virginia released her debut single, “Over It” in January 2024.
Bailly says she was “Influenced by icons such as Ariana Grande, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, and Ciara,” describing her sound as a modern mix of 90s/00s R&B and Pop. Like many of her influences, she draws on her background in musical theatre and dance for inspiration, where “she discovered a profound passion for music and live performances.”
“Over It” is airy and spacious, with a focus on reverberating lyrics supported by mostly rhythmic accents. Describing “bouncing back after a breakup,” the track seeks to turn pain into strength, and acknowledges the benefits of no longer stressing over the toxic relationship.
“Bailly embraces her fresh start with a newfound confidence and attitude knowing that she is truly ‘Over it’. This record makes for the perfect girl anthem, and a positive start for the new year.”We’re looking forward to sharing more music by Bailly Castillo, and her story, with you in the coming year.

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
