ZZ WARD – THE STORM

ZZ Ward didn’t have to look far for inspiration on her second full‐length album, 2017’s The Storm. Equally evocative of blues grit and hip‐hop bounce, the Los Angeles‐based vocal powerhouse and multi‐instrumentalist leapt forward by taking a deeper look at some of her earliest inspirations—including Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Vera Ward Hall and Big Mama Thornton. “For me, this album wasn’t really about experimenting,” she admits. “It was more about simplicity, honing in on what I love about music and what makes me who I am as an artist. Growing up, I listened to a lot of hip‐hop and blues, and I love those two genres so much. Sometimes, to evolve you don’t need to go outside of yourself; you can reach further inside of yourself instead.” It’s a realization earned over a whirlwind five years. The Fedora‐rocking, guitar‐shredding, harmonica‐wielding blues siren peppered an old backporch musical recipe with hip‐hop urgency and hashtaggable wisdom on her 2012 ...

On their 2017 full‐length debut album AM/PM the group boldly bob and weave past convention and emerge with an infectious and inimitable body of work representative of their penchant for unpredictability. Throughout 2016, the band recorded what would become AM/PM with producer Drew Fulk [Motionless In White, We Came As Romans] in Los Angeles. The songs encourage listeners to be introspective, self‐aware and think outside the box. “We don’t want to stick to any one specific sound,” affirms KJ.

IMAGINE DRAGONS – EVOLVE

“Believer” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 at Alternative Radio and broke a 13+ year record for number of spins at the format, besting the record previously held by Linkin Park’s “Faint” in 2003. TIME called “Believer” “another showstopper of an anthem,” while Entertainment Weekly noted its “thudding tribal drums, a massive shout along chorus, and a wicked bassline that’s the sonic equivalent of a slug to the gut.” Billboard called “Believer” “a whimsical‐yet‐authoritative anthem sure to turn even the most hesitant of optimists into a believer.” Formed in 2009 and featuring lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman, Imagine Dragons earned a grassroots  following by independently releasing a series of EPs. After Alex Da Kid signed them to his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope label, the band made its major‐label debut with the release of Continued Silence, a 2012 EP featuring the 2x platinum breakthrough single “It’s Time.” Night Visions ...
