A HOT PREMIERE
2/6/19

17-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lola Bates drops an exclusive premiere of her latest music video for “Red Hot” today (2/6). The title track of her eight-song debut album with Human Made Records, due on 3/29, was released last Friday and is the third single from Red Hot.

Having worked on both volumes of the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtracks, as well as providing backing vocals for Marilyn Manson’s last album, Bates is no stranger to the studio. Writing both the music and lyrics, she collaborated with her composer/producer father, Tyler Bates, as well as Grammy-winning engineer/producer/mixer Robert Carranza for her debut album.

Watch the exclusive video premiere for “Red Hot” below, and look out for the album on 3/29.

VEGAS MUSIC SUMMIT
2/5/19

Last weekend in Downtown Las Vegas, the Vegas Music Summit gathered a collective of music industry folk to educate college students, emerging musicians, and discuss the evolving entertainment landscape. The two-day summit, 1/31-2/1, included artist Q&A’s with Lovelytheband and Mac Reynolds, while also featuring panels on Marketing, Social Media, Legal and Streaming.

The conference, which is in its 11th year of running, welcomed HITS' own Ranya Khoury for their Streaming Playlists panel on Friday (2/1), diving into all there is to know about DSPs. Sharing the stage with Khoury was the Bunny’s Mike Sherwood (SVP, Revenue and Commercial Accounts), Michael Warner (independent curator/author of WorkHardPlaylistHard), and Tina Warwick (ADA).

Seen above after managing to sneak her way onstage is a puzzled Khoury with Sherwood and Warner.

MAVERICK MOVES FORWARD
WITH "GRACE"
1/14/19

London-bred, Irish singer/songwriter and rapper Michael Stafford (aka Maverick Sabre) dropped his powerful and poignantly stirring new track “Her Grace,” which features Chronixx, on 12/7, closing out the year with a music video—directed by Shaun Grace—and the promise of new music in 2019. The second single off the Mercury/UMG artist’s forthcoming album, “Her Grace,” touches on domestic abuse.

The full-length project, When I Wake Up, is expected to drop in March and includes features from Grammy-nominated artists Jorja Smith and Chronixx. Seven years after his debut album, Lonely Are The Brave, dropped in 2012 and rose to #2 on the U.K. album charts, Sabre—currently repped by Evergreen Artists Management—has truly evolved into a multifaceted artist. Although he’s not currently touring the U.S., you catch him in the U.K. and Ireland; dates can be found here.
