Singer/Songwriter Kyle Motsinger Releases Highly Anticipated New Single “Love On Each Other”

Kyle Motsinger has just released his highly anticipated new single “Love On Each Other,” the follow up to his successful hit “Dark Shadows.”

Kyle Motsinger is a NYC singer/songwriter living in NYC who writes theatrical pop/rock music. His new single “Love On Each Other” is the first single from his upcoming sophomore album that will be released this winter.

Notes on the new single in the words of the singer himself, Kyle Motsinger:

In dark times we need to ‘Love on Each Other’ in order to get through. The concept of my new single isn’t new. It’s been echoed in many songs including a very famous one I happen to reference in mine. So why do we have to keep saying it? Why did I write yet another song about spreading love? Well, unfortunately there seems to be a lack of it in the world right now. Fear drives people to lash out at those who are different. Crowds are chanting against immigrants and transgender people are being murdered in the streets. Every day I’m alarmed at the injustices that are being committed. There’s an imbalance of hate over love.

The title of the song came from a Facebook post by my friend and fellow artist Colleen Harris. She was upset over one of the many horrible news stories we’ve seen in the last few years. She said we needed to ‘Love on Each Other’ and the gears in my head immediately started turning. I felt inspired to write this new song in hopes that it would inspire everyone like Colleen’s post had inspired me. I wanted to make it as fun and bubbly as I could. I wanted to bring positivity and spread love with it. I blended the kind of styles of pop together that made me smile and that’s how the sound was created. I worked with producer and fellow singer/songwriter Corey Tut to refine the track and record my vocals. Mark Hartman, who arranged brass for my song ‘War on Christmas,’ wrote the violin parts that gave it a disco flair! It’s a sneak peak of the more upbeat sound I’m cultivating for my Sophomore album that will be released this winter! I hope everyone takes away from the song that we have the power to change the world if we open our hearts and “Love on Each Other!”

21-year-old L.A. Native Pop Break out Artist Jessie Berg Releases newest Single and Music Video “Monster”

At only 21-years-old, break out artist, singer and songwriter Jessie Berg, has already been recognized by some of the biggest names in the music industry and has just released her first single and music video “Monster”, produced by the Aristocats.

 

Jessie Berg was recently discovered by Kent Jacobs, who has worked with world famous bands such as, The Police, The Cult and REM to name a few. Miss Berg’s style of music is pop, but also identifies in the R&B category, and she describes her art as a mix of both. Her strongest influences derive from emotionally- driven female storytellers such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and Cher.

 

Miss Berg describes “Monster” in the pop genre, but more left of center pop. Her inspiration for the song came from that suffocating feeling she felt from the pressure conform. “My song talks about being trapped and influenced by others and the pressures we face everywhere in society today. The line that best describes my feeling in life right now is ‘I just wanna be me’.”

 

“Monster” was shot in May of 2019 at an old burned down house and as Berg describes, “It was surreal, shooting in the dark shell of a home perfectly captured the feeling we wanted to be portrayed. At the beginning of the video, there is a strong sense of me being shackled in the old burnt down house which truly is a symbol of me being trapped. In the end, I’m out of the house which represents my freedom from the challenges I face today.” The Video was Directed by “RAGE”.

 

Jessie has been trained in vocals, Songwriting, theatre, dance, piano and is emerging with guitar and says, “Music has always been a part of my life. I would attribute the start of my music career to my grandmother who has always encouraged me to sing and is a true inspiration.”

 

Miss Berg explains her passion for her messaging and platform in a way that drives her towards success. Jessie Berg says “I think having a platform comes with a lot of responsibility. You have the power to influence people for the better, which is what I want to do. I guess my biggest thing is I want to be an artist that is honest with people and be a shoulder for people to lean on. I think it’s important to promote individuality, confidence, and not being afraid of what other people think. I’m always so inspired by women who use their platform to talk about the real issues/ thing’s others are afraid to bring up. I want to take on a role like that. I’m not looking to change the world with my platform just yet, but if I can be a positive and encouraging influence and bring joy to even one person with my music than I feel like that’s enough.” Follow Jessie Berg @jessiebergg

Nathan Nelson and His Entertainment Crackers New Album “Amerijuanacana” Now Available Worldwide!

Nathan Nelson and His Entertainment Crackers’ Spectra Music Group debut album “Amerijuanacana” is now available worldwide. Download your copy today on all digital download platforms.

Nathan Nelson emerged onto the Atlanta Blues scene in the early 2000’s. With his rich southern vocals and deeply soulful playing style, Nathan quickly became an artist that audiences sought out and local musicians were eager to collaborate with. Established players such as Bill Sheffield, Donnie Mccormick (Eric Quincy Tate), Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) and Blackberry Smoke, embraced Nathan as one of their own and he became a fixture at many blues venues all over Georgia.

In late 2007, Nathan connected with Dave Ross and Andy Tomko who are transplants from Florida and Pennsylvania, respectively. However, with Dave’s swampy bass licks and Andy’s subtle yet punchy percussion, you would swear that these three musicians grew up playing on back porches by moonlight their entire lives. And so it was that The Entertainment Crackers were born.

In a few short months, The Crackers culminated a signature sound that enriched classic blues standards and spawned original songs that audiences have grown to know and love. Nelson’s lyrical style gives listeners an unfiltered view of his perspective of the world. Whether it’s humor or heartache, Nathan Nelson and The Entertainment Crackers’ songs tell it to you straight. “Amerijuanacana” transcends labels and exists as a singular work of honest songwriting. With a timeless blues aesthetic, well crafted story telling and a vocal style that is un-paralleled, Nathan Nelson and his Entertainment Crackers continue to write their chapter onto the pages of Southern music.

Power House Companies Place Indie Artist On The Map with a Viral Concept Video

From 106 YouTube subscribers to over 160k, and 60 million views on her music video, Tori Vjumped on a fast-track to stardom by collaborating with two powerhouse companies. 

Director Zane from Zane Productions and Holly Davidson & Ruthi Davis from iConnectYou.Today (ICT) are directly responsible for the success of the Independent Artist viral music video that helped her rise from zero to hero with a virtually nonexistent advertising budget.

Our editors caught up with the team responsible for hermassive success. Take a closer look at our insightful interview.

You have shot for many household named brands and signed artists. Did you know this video was going to have the reaction it did once it was placed? 

Zane Productions: 

I actually didn’t expect this video to receive the attention it did, but like any other project, I gave it my full attention as a director and made sure to make it as appealing and entertaining to young people as people!

iConnectYou.today:

Yes, and that is exactly why we developed the concept in the first place. Perhaps the most important facet of the process is analysis of the product, in this case the artists, and their greatest appeal and relatable aspects among their target demographic. From there, we zone in on the concept and strategize on every detail—from the lyrics, ages, demographics, etc. As long as we are part of the overall project, it typically hits and yields significant results, and in this case, organically.

What is your recommendation for emerging artists who are looking to receive similar success so quickly?

Zane Productions: 

Easy: KNOW YOUR BRAND! Without knowing that, you don’t know you image, you don’t know your market, and eventually you won’t know what to create and sell. Everything is a sales pitch, and if you’re not in this industry to sell, probably it’s not for you.

iConnectYou.today:

Hire our team! Collaborate with experts and stick to what you are good at doing. If you are the artist, stay as the artist. Stay in your lane and trust others with specific expertise outside of your lane.

 We understand that some videos go viral despite the budget allotted? 

 Zane Productions: 

Some of the most popular viral videos were created on mobile phones. It’s all about the concept! It’s all about the content. ICT had an amazing concept and as a director I was fully on board to develop the best treatment possible, hire the right crew, and bring it to life shot by shot.

iConnectYou.today:

Correct. Having money to help with ads, clicks, retargeting ads, giveaways,  etc. does help, but it’s not always the case. We see so many products and/or artists who have great videos, but when they don’t include a strategicPR and/or marketing engine behind the video, it goes nowhere. You not only want to produce a good video, but also know your market—that is everything—and you don’t always need a large budget. For instance this Barbie video had zero dollars for advertising and marketing, and is now grossing over 60 million views. Concept and delivery is everything.

Have you worked on other concepts with this artist? 

Zane Productions: 

Everything we do at ZANE Productions is conceptual. We don’t move forward with a video shoot unless we have a concept, a clear direction, a visual style, and a solid video treatment. We’ve delivered many videos that have gone viral and can’t wait to deliver more.

iConnectYou.today:Yes, we unfortunately advised another concept over the phone and spoke for about five minutes regarding the overall idea. However, Zane Productions and iconnectyou.today ( ICT) were not involved in the project. While the concept could have yielded huge results, it was spun wrong and only received 400k views. PR and marketing are the backbone for success. In this case, the song choice, video director and producer were not the right choice for the concept, and sadly didn’t yield the same results it should have.

What other concepts have you’ve developed for other artists and/or brands?

Zane Productions: 

Not sure where to start; we’re currently working with Disney, Marvel, Ubtech, EZ Inflatables and many more to deliver commercials and branded content to promote their products and services.

iConnectYou.today:

We have a huge concept for Coca-Cola. Our commercial concept will blow Gatorade brand execs’minds—and drastically reduce their advertising budget with a premise/concept that will be flipped upside down. We have also developed concepts for General Mills, and believe it or not, the NRA….

Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you got started started?

Zane Productions: 

Back in 2015, I quit my full-time job and went through an exploration phase to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life and most importantly what I would excel doing. After dabbling in a few things and nearly spending all of my savings, I met an independent artist who needed a video and barely had any money to shoot it. I jumped right in and volunteered to do it and even pay for part of the production expenses. I had absolutely NO IDEA what I was doing, but I knew that we lived in LA and all the right resources were here to make a video with no budget. After lots of research, reading, youtube tutorials, workshops, and guidance from experts, I directed my first music video on August 13, 2015. It’ll be 4 years next month since my directorial debut, and I’m proud to say that I have built a very successful video production company – ZANE Productions, LLC – and delivered over 100 videos to date!

iConnectYou.today:

Our experts have worked in the advertising, marketing, TV/film, music, and branding space. Some of our former clients include:Nike, Microsoft, Dr. Pepper, Panda Express, Tecate, CBSetc. We have implemented some of the most notable campaigns that often got picked by worldwide news to then realize it was a marketing and/or advertising concept.

How can we keep up with you?
