BFP (Bergå Folk Project) : Encore (EP)

Exploring folk music material, reconstructing and studying the tradition and having fun with it all - these are the elements that make up BFP, a special project formerly known as Bergå Folk Project, a collaboration of four Finnish professional folk musicians.

Yemi Alade: Tomorrow (Single)

Global Afropop superstar Yemi Alade has released a new single, “Tomorrow”— an up-beat track that speaks on the importance of the gift of tomorrow and its promise for a better day. It’s about having another opportunity to achieve things we couldn't today.

The Twins of Franklin: This Life (Album)

Their second and newest album, This Life, mixes hard and soft like only one thing can — American girl rock. It’s both powerful and birdsong sweet — like taking your 70s convertible out for a rage cruise on a sunny spring day.

Sierra Green: Here We Are (Album)

Emerging as a vibrant musical force from the bustling streets of New Orleans, Sierra Green fuses timeless soul with an irresistible contemporary allure, evoking the depth and grit of the genre's raw essence. Revered as the "Queen of Frenchmen Street," Sierra's New Orleans roots delve deep into the rich musical soil of the city's 7th Ward — a historic breeding ground that nurtured legends such as Jelly Roll Morton, Sidney Bechet, and Allen Toussaint.

Rolando Bruno Y Su Grupo Arévalo: Cosas Raras (Album)

Cosas Raras is the new album from Argentina’s cumbia hero Rolando Bruno. On Cosas Raras Bruno and his band Grupo Arévalo romp through twelve tracks of their signature “cumbia trash” sound - a rough and ready mix of Peruvian-inspired cumbia, punk, and other vintage throwback musical and visual inspirations from pop culture (like UFOs, street food and horror movies), all spun together into a wild mashup.

Angelique Francis: Train Coming (Single)

As she combines authentic blues, soul and gospel influences with smooth, rock-infused electric guitars, JUNO Award winning artist Angelique Francis delivers a captivating performance on her new single “Train Coming”. The first single to be released ahead of her new album Watch Me Grow, set to release this summer, “Train Coming” Invites listeners to join along for an exhilarating ride.

Devon Cole: I Got You (Single

Catchily packaging social truths in repeat worthy bops, singer-songwriter Devon Cole has emerged as an enigmatic and engaging force to be reckoned with. Since signing to Arista Records in 2022, Devon has amassed millions of streams across her repertoire and received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, V Magazine, Bustle, and Earmilk.
