PRETTY SURE ABOUT DESURE
3/29/19

L.A. native Desure, aka Josh Desure, has just released his latest track “Los Angeles” today (3/29) via Tuxedo Records/MEGA Records. An amalgamation of country, folk, indie and rock, the track’s confessional chorus draws inspiration from the excesses of the L.A. player lifestyle. "Growing up in Los Angeles, you lose a bit of the romanticism and that feeling dissipates. This song sort of speaks for itself. A breaking point came and a shift had to occur,” says Desure.

A tour manager turned artist, Desure first started working with country trio Midland during their On the Rocks debut album tour before giving up his industry gig to fill a last minute opening act slot. Now, Desure is touring with Midland as an opening artist for their Electric Rodeo Tour, both in the U.S. and the U.K., and will be performing select dates with singer-songwriter Dwight Yoakam.

A FEW BEERS AND A HEALTHY DOSE OF TEARS
3/20/19

RCA’s Sasha Sloan performed for a sold-out show at the iconic Troubadour on 3/20, providing that sad girl energy we’ve all come to know and love. The ever-relatable Sloan, sans Juul this time, played fan favorites including a stripped down version of her Kygo collab “This Town” and brought out frequent collaborator/boyfriend King Henry before closing out with “Runaway.”

Opener Lauren Aquilina set the mood with some sad songs of her own. The Bristol born singer-songwriter stepped back from the spotlight in 2016 to be a songwriter, but returned in 2018 with her single “Psycho,” which she closed out her set with. Aquilina’s latest single “Tobacco In My Sheets,” an open letter to her mom about how she was using alcohol and drugs after her first heartbreak, drops on 3/29.

Sloan will continue to hit a slew of cities across the U.S., a stop in Canada, and a few international sets before closing out the tour with a hometown set at the Greek with fellow Hills Artist repped band LANY. For tickets and more information, click here.
