L.I.Y.A, the Nashville-via-LA duo of singer Kaya Stewart and singer/songwriter/producer Jamie Lidell, have shared a free stream of their track ‘California’.
Steward and Lidell have recorded an album’s worth of songs and ‘California’ is the first release.
Sasha had this to say about her track ‘Waterworks’ in an e-mail; “We wrote the song about getting drunk and telling your friends all your problems – something I have done on multiple occasions. We wanted the track to be a tongue-and-cheek, self-deprecating ‘pull yourself together’ moment. It made me excited to explore a new version of myself as an artist, looking at the complexity of adulthood and not taking myself or my music too seriously.”
She’s offered a free stream of the single, out now. The London, UK-based electronic pop singer/songwriter took different approach to her songwriting when she worked with producer Scott Colcombe in early 2018.

Falcon Jane, aka Sara May, had this to say about her track ‘The News’ in an e-mail; “’The News’ is about losing someone you love and trying to find them amidst the dense, emotional fog of grief. I hope it can help aid those who are grieving by reflecting some of the complicated emotions we are feeling.”
She offered a free stream of the track, taken from her latest album Feelin’ Freaky, out now.
The severe flooding that affected her community Southwestern Ontario also inspired the track, particularly a young child who was washed out of his mother’s arms. May and her partner had driven through the area just a few hours before the tragedy struck. She noted that there were a lot of parallels between the child’s death and ‘The News’.
When the next flood hit, May tried to capture when she and the community had been feeling.
“Water can be powerful and destructive, beautiful and cleansing. Its constant flow reminds us to keep moving forward – yet we are at the mercy of the current, the rainfall, and the floods,” she wrote.

Toronto singer/songwriter/freestyler Olive B, aka Nicole Olivia Balsom, has shared a free stream of her track ‘joey moon’.
The track’s name comes from her father’s old band, Joey Moon and the Crescents.
Balsom comes from a classical background but in an e-mail, she said that, “It was freestyling alone over basic guitar chords or over beats at parties that I really found my musical outlet.”
She hooked up with Toronto producer Kayobe who was looking for a singer for his track ‘Sun Don’t Shine’. The two felt an immediate musical connection and started writing music together, Just a few weeks after meeting, they were working on her debut album no(w)here, out now.
“The majority of my recent music has been in collaboration with Chewy, a Vancouver producer, who I met through mutuals,” Balsom said in an e-mail. “When it came to creating my new single, Chewy sent me the beat and 30 minutes later, I responded with the freestyle for the first verse of ‘joey moon’.”
This follows the release of Balsom’s track ‘always you’, also streaming for free;
