Introducing upcoming artist CREDLE and his new single titled ‘The Chase’, which no doubt will be an instant favourite for those who love house music and Afrobeats. A deep soulful four-on-the-floor pattern perfectly blends with Credle’s vocals which gives off a rich Motherland feel.
Born and raised in South Jamaica, Queens Credle’s love for music ignited when his father began directing the choir where he was a member until he was in high school.
After leaving the choir, Credle began to fall in love with the art of poetry. He saw his words on the page and felt he had found an outlet to express the emotions he often could not share as a young black kid growing up in Southside Jamaica Queens. After some time, he began to explore the combination of melodies as well as rhymes and took to the art of rapping. During his college years, Credle fully committed himself to creating music.
Also a songwriter and music executive, Credle is a CEO/Founder of Credle Entertainment.

Canadian R&B phenom EMANUEL‘s latest single ‘Worldwide’ captures a time when dreams were still dreams – before his music was streamed millions of times around the globe and his talent was admired by fans and critics alike.
Created in his producer/collaborator Bedroom’s basement, Emanuel recalls that the lyrics “floated up to the surface” as ‘Worldwide’ spontaneously took shape: “During that time, we were really dreaming out loud in the way that we would talk about our futures and in the way that we were trying to summon this grand reality. This song was really born from the deep want to take the music to the world.” Years later, ‘Worldwide’ has morphed from a manifestation mantra into a song of celebration and a prayer for the future.
“This past year has been a great learning experience for what it means to really manifest something and be appreciative of the things you’ve been able to uncover and draw from within yourself and make reality,” says Emanuel. “But even though we’ve manifested certain aspects of the song – and that’s a beautiful thing – it still wants to be seen out in its fullness. ‘Worldwide’ is a song of affirmation and it’s become a prayer to be able to continue until all of those goals are met in their completion.”
The dream to connect with people in the cities and countries he sings about is still very real for Emanuel since the pandemic has prevented him from bringing his music to stages around the world. “It’s wild to me how prophetic music can be. I’m still imagining going to those places, smelling the air, performing in front of crowds, and being able to truly live out what the song is talking about: to be able to take the message, the energy we bring, the light we’ve been blessed with; to be able to share that while also being open to receiving wisdom and exporting that back so we can enrich the places we’re in. That beautiful exchange, that’s the heart of it.”
Mixed by Gary Noble (Amy Winehouse, Nas, Public Enemy), “Worldwide” is the final glimpse into ALT THERAPY, Emanuel’s inaugural full-length project, before the album makes its eagerly anticipated debut on June 16th.
Earlier this Spring, Emanuel was honoured with his first JUNO Award nomination. His critically acclaimed debut EP Session 1: Disillusion has been nominated for Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year which will be awarded at the 50th Annual JUNO Awards this June.

LISA CONTA has graced the cover of The Guardian’s Observer and the pages of British Vogue, Elle and Wonderland Magazine. She has mesmerized with her beauty and beyond her image, has remained somewhat of a mystery until now, as she is set to captivate the world with her voice via the release of her debut single.
Entitled ‘Difficult’, the track has the ambiance of grown and sexy R&B whilst being modernised by her enigmatic flair, with the help of producer JA1DA. Heightened by a rumbling bass, Lisa Conta finds her own voice and balances vulnerability with assertiveness as she contemplates the fine line between lust and a relationship. Assured in her ability not to fall in love with potential, the track zooms in on emotional highs and lows and whilst recognizing her desires, Lisa remains self-empowered and unwilling to settle for anything that doesn’t deliver or have depth.
A poetic balance of raw and honest emotion, ‘Difficult’ has an air of melancholy as chilly blues and sultry warmth are wound together in a relatable, remarkable record that sees her take ownership over her part in a relationship. The sincerity of the slow burning R&B track reveals a deep and strong character that exposes chinks of sensitivity and vulnerability – the human behind her image which has been viewed the world over.
Of Swedish-Gambian decent, Lisa resides in London and is signed to leading modelling agency ‘Storm Models’. Whilst initially dreaming of a career in pro-basketball, it has been her calling as a model and singer/songwriter that has determined her course. Surrounded by a musical family that includes her grandfather, ‘The Singing Prince’ of Gambia, and her own father Eddie Conta, it was inevitable that Lisa would too, someday, find her own voice.
Delivering shades of experience, and an exquisite musical palette, Lisa Conta shares her debut single ‘Difficult’ to the world…
On the heels of her last single, ‘Cry’ and with over 20 million streams on Spotify, BETH CROWLEY follows up with her new single and lyric video ‘Storm Chaser’.
Rumbling thunder and a piano melody opens ‘Storm Chaser’ before Crowley pours her heart out while reminiscing about a love that could only occur once in a lifetime. The emotional ballad follows the story of someone so tormented by the past that they can’t even imagine a future that compares.
Speaking of her latest single, Beth says: ‘Storm Chaser’ was inspired by the Alexander Graham Bell quote: “When one door closes, another one opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” I thought about how sometimes we are not so far down a path that we couldn’t imagine what it would have been like to have chosen differently. This song is from the perspective of someone that is daydreaming about an ex-lover that parted ways with her, and she is wondering if she will always be longing for what they could have had.”
