With comparisons to Blackbear, The Chainsmokers & Zedd with his melodic yet dancey pop, singer songwriter AESTHETIC made his debut with his first single “Happy Again” on New Years Eve 2017 with the intent to take 2018 by storm. The song was largely inspired by his personal dealings with depression with all money made benefitting the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. AESTHETIC, born Brandon Karasinski, had his first exposure to music listening to artists of the 90’s boy band movement. After picking up guitar at the age of 9, he played in various bands from the Lehigh Valley, PA area across a 10 year span, in which he recorded several singles and shared the stage with artists such as Our Last Night, Trace Cyrus and Set It Off. After taking some time off to rediscover his passion for making music, AESTHETIC was born. He connected with producer Austin Hull through the online Facebook group “MAKE POP MUSIC: Pop Producers and Songwriters” and recorded his debut single “Happy Again.” After much success with his debut, he released the tracks “Shadow Puppets” and "Milestones" in 2018. The following year AESTHETIC released "Hold Me Down" in fall 2019, "Good" in 2020. With the 5th release on the way, 2021 is shaping up to be AESTHETIC's biggest year yet. In this podcast he shares how his Grandfather raised him on Elvis, the Beatles and Frank Sinatra with his Dad giving him musical influences from the 70’s Led Zeppelin and Van Halen you can tell he is making his mark for his own generation's take on these along with a heavily influenced Star Wars fan! The positive vibes we get from his songs are grown from mental health and depression struggles that he has dealt with and raised money for charity that support people in depression and anxiety. Bring a voice and sharing from a place of vulnerability is a shining light for any of us who are struggling. He lets us know that you're not alone, you are beautiful and life is all about living a good life. Connect with Brandon - aka Aesthetic: Facebook Spotify YouTube Instagram Other Music Links

Singer, songwriter, musician, teacher and producer Paul DeMarco seems to be able to do it all. In this podcast we talk about how he has turned his life into a space where he can be full time in the music industry and live his dream life, "they say if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life" says Paul as he describes how he has worked towards his lifestyle and used mental self-developmental tactics to help him achieve his goals.  One of the hardest things to find as an artist is a producer that gets your style of music and can bring them to life in the studio, Paul and Rae Leigh (Host) talk about communication and the best ways to get past this barrier.  Paul is from Anglesey in the North Wales part of the UK with over 25 years of experience performing, writing and recording music both as a solo performer and member of the group Gumshaw, the Ebenezer Chapter band project and Southern rock band Blackwater Lake. Performing live has led to him sharing the stage with a diverse range of artists, from Ed Sheeran's co-writer Amy Wadge to Jan Akkerman, and from Budgie to Henry Priestman from the Christians. As a multi instrumentalist, Paul shows his dedication to being the best musician he can by always growing and expanding, both in terms of performance and song writing, and as a producer. Equally happy with an acoustic or electric guitar, Paul found his voice through necessity, "When you write songs you want them to be heard, and that means singing them!" Co-writing with songwriters all over the world has only served to enhance Pauls song-writing and he always brings his best to every co-write. Having gigged for many years up and down the UK and on the continent, Paul can be seen entertaining the music lovers along the shores of Anglesey and North Wales, or wherever the call comes from, and streaming them live means that anyone in the world can catch a glimpse of even the remotest performance. The songs you will hear will show Paul’s passion for his music and his versatility in many genres but always serving the song and the lyric. Enjoy...

2020 has been a breakthrough year for Cass Hopetoun.  In January she won the Tamworth Songwriter’s Association talent quest before releasing her debut single ‘Shots’ independently in March. In April she signed to Compass Bros Records. In May she opened for Casey Donovan at Australia's first ever pandemic drive-in concert, performed live on Channel 7's Sunrise and ‘Shots’ reached #4 on The Music Network Country Airplay Chart. In September Cass’s follow up single ‘Typical Bride’ peaked at #1 on that same chart. Typical Bride also hit the #1 spot on 2TM’s Top 20 and #3 on KIX Country’s Hottest 20 charts. Both singles were added to full rotation on CMC/CMT respectively and to Spotify and Apple Music playlists. Cass stumbled upon her talent for song when a friend “dragged her along to the choir” as a young student in Sydney’s Blue Mountains. She learned piano, took singing lessons and idolised Delta Goodrem but the song writing of Dolly Parton and Brandy Clark soon became her driving influences. Her latest single 'Fortune Teller' was produced by Matt Fell and recorded at his Love Hz Studios in Sydney. It was inspired by a 2019 trip to New Orleans. “I went to a fortune teller,” recalls Hopetoun, “and just knew I had to write about one. I wanted to capture the New Orleans vibe – all those jazzy and mysterious flavours that the streets of the French Quarter have to offer. The song evolved into being about people who they think they know what’s best for you. This is me telling them to mind their own business.” Cass’s debut album, produced by Matt Fell, will be released in 2021.

Singer Songwriter Patrick Cornell is featured on this podcast through a link up on Instagram but so glad we were able to connect because we got to talk about his musical life, influences and how he got to where he is today.  During this Covid Pandemic that we are all experiences Patrick talks about music being the healing thing that will get us all through everything we are facing.  With 15 years of classical and jazz training and inspiration from rock n' roll greats, the Dayton, OH native left the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music as a jazz/studio music major and moved to Los Angeles, California to start his professional music career as a studio/touring bass guitarist for hire. He performed various gigs on bass guitar with such notable artists as Dave Navarro (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses) and Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray). Cornell eventually migrated to Nashville and has gone through a transformation from a session bass player into a full-time songwriter, producer and solo artist. Taking direction from the Nashville’s songwriting community and culture, Cornell’s lyrics focus on telling a complete story. He writes from a reflective perspective with the intention of his story relating to a broad audience. If you ask him why and how he’s accomplished all he has, his response is simple: “It’s God-given.” He argues that none of what he’s accomplished has happened because of anything that he’s done on his own. Still, he’s done a lot. So what is he most proud of so far? “My hair,” he jokes. As Patrick focuses on the future, his goals are simple: release music and play shows.

Kirstie Kraus came through last year asking for an interview and like I do with all artist applications I went straight to check out her music and first up found 'Silver' which is such a hot song and I love the female empowerment behind it which drew me in straight away, so glad to have had a chat with her which only made me a bigger fan of her work and I’m sure it will for you too. She’s thirsty for love and magic, for joy and sunshine. She’s thirsty for compassion and authenticity. And more than anything, she’s thirsty for anything that sets her soul on fire. Kirstie Kraus carries her thirst in her songwriting, in her live shows, and in her everyday connection with other kindred spirits. Nowhere is her appetite more quenched than on a stage in front of her fans, appropriately named “Thirsties”. Her confidence naturally shines under the bright lights, taking concert goers on a well-defined path of self-discovery and bliss. Her writing infuses her own transparent journey with others’ experiences to create sustainable lyrics and catchy melodies. The result is a perfect blend of country, funk, blues, and rock because with Kirstie, there are no boundaries. There’s only the process of “letting go” and letting the song tell you what it wants to be. Connect with Kirstie: Facebook Instagram Website Spotify YouTube Twitter
