My Name Is All I Got - Lady A"

This new track from Seattle-based singer Anita Ward (who performs under the name Lady A) addresses head-on her controversial legal battle with the Nashville trio who recently adopted the same name (formerly known as Lady Antebellum). ‘My Name Is All I Got’ is a soulful, hearty blues tune that allows Ward to showcase the warm depth of her powerful vocals and, of course, her fighting spirit.

Redemption - Nathaniel Rateliff"

Denver-based Rateliff announced yesterday that his new single, 'Redemption', will feature in Justin Timberlake's new film Palmer, premiering in January. It's certainly suited - the song is deeply cinematic; Rateliff's warm and gritty voice seamlessly intertwining with expansive instrumentation and angelic backing vocals that wouldn't be amiss on a Bon Iver track.

Howdy Christmas - Scarlett Burke and Hailey Whitters"

'Tis the season for a good old Christmas song, and Scarlett Burke and Hailey Whitters are on the case. 'Howdy Christmas' is fun, lighthearted and cheery - a bit of a festive anthem, if you ask us. As we approach such a disrupted holiday season, we've never been more in need of a feel-good tune to boot away the stress and make the most of everything and everyone we love, and 'Howdy Christmas' is just the ticket. Enjoy.

Doing Life With Me - Eric Church

A heartfelt new acoustic release from Church, 'Doing Life With Me' is a humble love song paying gratitude to all the people who've supported him in his artistic pursuits. It's simple yet effective - a trusty country song with plenty of heart.
