This week brings us the debut single from Denton’s Shea Delaney, the latest from duo Market Zero, a new song from Fort Worth rapper Lou CharLe$, and “Til The Morning Comes”- the last single that Dallas country crooner Parket Twomey will release before his full album drops in July. We also heard a message of hope from Ellen Once Again, new music out Dallas from dvd, the solo project from David Lunsford, and a new song from Fort Worth’s J.R. Sullivan.
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
Ellen Once Again is back to make us feel better. The songstress writes her music with messages of hope and self-love in mind. “Hope” stays true to format- complete with a message to keep moving forward.
The Austin native and Berklee College of Music graduate recently moved to Denton ahead of the release of his debut single “Destination”. The song was released on the summer solstice, which is appropriate for the the theme. Delaney says “After the Summer Solstice, every day is shorter than the one before, which seems appropriate since a theme of ‘Destination’ is the importance of making choices and the costs of inaction.”
Lou CharLe$ feat. Kap G
It’s been a while since we caught up with the Fort Worth rapper, and he sure has been busy. Lou is still riding the wave of the last Louapalooza concert, and has dropped multiple singles this year. Lou teamed up with Atlanta-based rapper Kap G for “Wrong Reasons”, a smooth number about a not-so-smooth relationship.
