In a world where so many pop tunes are accused of being unoriginal and derivative, it’s incredibly refreshing to hear something which is clearly pop but also has a uniqueness which pushes the listener to want to hear more. Jack Rose is the master of this dynamic – a unique artist who can still get an entire dance floor to bump with an ease that even more seasoned artists may struggle to find. He’s already graced the front and back cover of Music Week magazine and many critics agree he’s a force to reckon with in 2021.
Hot off the trail of collaborating with some of the UK’s most well-renowned music producers, Jack Rose (no known connection to the popular DMV whiskey bar!) has a new single entitled Rock Star that producers can’t get enough of – it’s already been remixed three times and counting. It’s just his most recent effort that sounds as home in the club as an a long drive, and Rose’s voice has a sincerity that reflects that of Tom Misch, with a groove as that pumps as hard as Bruno Mars. Give Rock Star a listen here, and be ready to hear much more from Jack Rose in the coming years:

Kaelab Riyan Folks is a singer/songwriter from Staunton, VA. Short and sweet, his genre consists of a pop-like R&B sound. He is known as a hopeless romantic, and he likes to make his music about the realistic emotional encounters he has faced. We are just beginning to learn about him, but we see a ton of potential going forward!
His newest track is called, “Save Your Love” it definitely fits into his genre range. The piano chords that are the center piece of the instrumental are simple, but has that pop-element we look for that keeps your head bopping. His vocals are impressive, as he sings, “Save Your Love” during the hook which will easily get stuck in the listener’s head. One of our favorite parts of the track are his ability to vocally harmonize in areas. Check out the track below.
