Virginia Artist Terrell New Track “UPPERS + DOWNERS” Drops Today!

by The Alchemist

R&B Superstar Terrell hails from VA where greats like Missy Elliott, Timbaland, and Chris Brown also call home. His smooth voice combined with his fierce melodies make for an unforgettable experience. In 2017, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue music and later that year released his first single “Overdose” which went to gain over 120,000 streams. Since then, he has released a three-track single “they say love hurts… it does” featuring fan favorite “bonnie & clyde”. In April 2020, Terrell released his single “Drama” which Billboard called a “cheeky and angsty R&B breakup anthem” making it his first major publication placement. His newest track dropped today.


A part-2 of his 2017 single, “Overdose”, UPPERS + DOWNERS is an electric R&B/Pop track that Terrell effortlessly glides over the beat, going in on his toxic lover as the song intensifies. When listening we were immediately entranced with Terrell’s incredible vocals and flow. He talks of his toxic lover throughout the song, and talks of his different ways of getting over he has battled through his toxic relationship. The song ends with a beat switch that catches the listener off guard and ends the track with a greal deal of emotion. This could be a great song for a drive while you’re headed to your family or friend’s house for the holiday weekend. Check it out below!

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
