Her music inspo comes from across the board ranging from, The Kills and The White Stripes to Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor. SO RAD.
The video is so raw and soulful and it will give you all the feels. The black and white really helps capture all the emotions and makes the song that much more powerful. Watch the video and tell us what you think in the comments below!
Lindsey’s new EP Distance Makes Me Sensitive is due for release April 21st on Sony RED.
We have a new song currently on repeat that we had to share with you guys! Rapper Bobby Brackins from Oakland, CA has come together with Zendaya and Jeremih for a new hit called My Jam.
Bobby's amazing rap skills paired with Zendaya's incredbile voice and Jeremih make for a track that we will be playing over and over for a while!
We recently had the opportunity to talk with one of our favorites, the incredible Liam Lis, and we are so happy to be able to share our exclusive interview with you guys. For those of you who don't know who Liam is, he is an extremly talented singer and song writer and is only 13-years old!
Liam became successful thanks to his Youtube videos which have over one million views and has since then gone on tour with Zendaya and Fifth Harmony. Check out our exclusive interview with Liam below and follow him on his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages!
Alot of your YouTube videos have over one million views, how does that make you feel?
I feel so blessed to be able to have my music heard. When you put a video up, you never know what the reaction will be but that's the risk you take. I am very thankful for my fans' support!
When did you realize you wanted to follow your passion for music as a career?
I have been writing songs for many years and always dreamt that one day someone would sing my songs. At first, I wanted to be a songwriter, but when I started performing my own songs on my first tour opening for Fifth Harmony I realized that I loved being on the road and that touring was also a passion of mine.
How do you handle school and recording albums and touring at the same time?
School is very important to me. So at times, my schedule gets extremely busy with rehearsals and all new choreography. I try to do most of my recording on the weekends, but sometimes I have to record right after school. So I have some late nights getting all of my homework done!
When you first started blowing up, how did people react to you at school?
I never really talked about my music at school until people started hearing about signing to Lava/Universal Republic and going on tour, but my buddies are vey supportive.
What's your writing process like when you write a song?
I try to think of a song title first then I start piecing together the chords and melody, and my lyrics come last. Then I like recording myself on my phone once everything is together to see how it sounds.
Where do you draw your inspiration from for your amazing lyrics?
I get my inspiration from daily life. Everything and anything that I see and hear. It can be from a movie, or something a friend said- anything, really.
Who inspires you the most?
I’m inspired by so many different incredible artists and also from my fans that message me that my music makes them happy. That means so much to me!
If you could go on tour with any artist or group who would it be?
That's a hard question! There are so many artists in different genres that I would be honored to tour with. I think Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Kanye West would be my top three.
What can your fans look forward to this year?
I’m writing and collaborating with a lot of cool writers for my EP. My music is finding a new sound, which I’m really excited about sharing later this year. I'm also hoping to tour and meet new fans!
We are so excited to present you guys with the premier of Plaid Brixx's BTS video for their hit song Chemistry here on Buzznet!
Plaid Brixx is a rock group from Ohio consisting of Chris Duggan, Mark Smith, and Cole Bradley that have been together since high school and have a refined sound to prove it. Chemistry is the title track off of their Chemistry EP which was released back in July and it is amazing! After the praise that they received from the video, they have decided to show us all exactly what the process was like for creating it.
When asked about the process for making Chemistry, lead singer Chris Duggan said "We had a really fun time on set but it was a brutally long shoot - I showed up at 10am and left around midnight. We also built a lot of the set ourselves the night before! We had originally tried to build a huge room-within-a-room framing out of 2x4s to hang lights on but the structure ended up collapsing. Luckily we caught it all on camera!"
