Song Of The Day: Fighting A War – Julian Rose (ft. Caroline Romano)

LA-based artist Julian Rose JUILAN ROSE and alt-pop powerhouse Caroline Romano team up for latest collaborative single, ‘Fighting A War’. Alternating between Julian’s R&B-tinged vocals and Caroline’s breezy voice, the single grapples with the push-and-pull of modern romance. It’s a reflective and lushly textured track that highlights the best of Caroline and Julian’s different musical universes.

Caroline says of the single: “Julian and I sat down to write this Summer while I was in LA. He came up with the chorus in the first fifteen minutes and, from there, we both found ourselves in two different parts of the same story. We wrote what each of us wanted to separately, and the final product is what you hear when we put everything together for the first time. I think it’s a universally relatable song. The clinging to something that once was, the loneliness of walking around a newly desolate relationship. It’s the war that we all fight at some point. I like that we both wrote different stories that ended up being part of the same one. It feels like a metaphor for something.”

A songwriter, rapper, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Julian Rose seamlessly blends elements of classic rock, soul, funk, hip-hop and pop, which defies genre boundaries. He made his debut in 2022 with the release of ‘How Deep,’ a 3-track EP produced by Bret “Epic” Mazur (Crazy Town, Black Eyed Peas, New Edition).

At just 21-years-old, Nashville-based singer and songwriter Caroline Romano has already accrued millions of streams across her repertoire. Her songs showcase her witty, introspective and hopeful take on modernity, romanticism and the highs and lows of being young in today’s world. In 2022 Caroline shared her debut album, ‘Oddities and Prodigies’, and has continued to capture the attention of fans and tastemakers with follow up singles like ‘Chopstix’ and ‘Me After September.’

April Kry’s New Album ‘Krysalis’ Will Leave You Totally Breathless

Nashville-based singer/songwriter APRIL KRY‘s new full-length concept album, Krysalis, is the reason why she’s often dubbed as the “tiny girl with a big voice”. Her powerful emotive vocal delivery glides over, at large, the featherlight soulful pop melodies leaves the prospective listener with a tear in the eye. 

Speaking of her ten-track project, April says“This body of work was written over a period of 2+ years. It was a transformative chapter of my life where I was forced to look at myself in the mirror and reflect on why I chose to create in the first place. Recording this album while pregnant, and in a global pandemic was challenging, but worth it. In these songs, you will hear moments of self-reflection, extreme highs and lows, and everything in between. Creating life, celebrating love, and examining my time in the music industry. I’ve learned that using my voice to inspire is more important than approval. No one ever talks about the season of growth the caterpillar needs to go through in order to become the butterfly. You don’t know who you are or where you are going. This is the Chrysalis growing stage. and this is the story of my Krysalis.” 

The album is a follow-up to her 2018 EP, Sink Or Swim which received national acclaim with songs from the EP landing a spot on the Music Row Country Breakout charts, with plays on numerous radio stations across the country, over 4 million streams across platforms,  including a coveted rotation on Radio Disney Country.

April Kry has been fortunate enough to write and work with Grammy award-winning songwriters and collaborate with some amazing talent including Nick Jonas and industry veteran, Phil Ramone. Kry pulls in heavy hitters on her new album, like Joshua Gleave (Chris Young, The Swon Brothers) and 9AM Music (Leon Bridges, Celine Dion).

Listen To Joeyglo’s New Single, ‘Lovely Lady’

Hailing from Nashville, singer-songwriter, producer, and audio engineer JOEYGLO shares his new single ‘Lovely Lady,’ which references the importance of making women feel validated, worthy and enough.

Although women are breaking boundaries all the time, Joeyglo says, “This world would be nothing without a woman or a girl.” “Lovely Lady” represents the prominence of well-deserved women. “The song is about the first moment the protagonist meets a woman and just has to know every little detail about who she is and wants to spend every waking moment with this special human,”

While blending genres and giving a fresh sound to the electronic-pop and hip-hop scenes, the track drew inspiration from “the givers of life,” says Joeyglo. “I wrote this song to be fun and flirtatious while not making women feel sexualized or unappreciated for who they really are as people,”

In Joeyglo’s career, his influences have had a powerful impact on his creativity and have even drawn comparisons to Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, and Jeff Buckley. The style and sound of his storytelling translated into lyrics are on the rise as he furthers himself in the limelight as an artist.

‘Lovely Lady’ was released last Friday (9th September) for your pleasure. Have a listen below…
