Hey Violet
Hey Violet
Since first breaking onto the alt-pop scene in 2015, L.A.-based band Hey Violet have revealed a rare power to transform everyday moments into something epic and wild and larger-than-life. On their latest batch of songs, frontwoman Rena Lovelis, her sister Nia Lovelis (on drums), and Casey Moreta (guitar) add new depth to the irresistibly shiny sound shown on their full-length debut From the Outside—a 2017 release including “Guys My Age,” a critically acclaimed track that’s now amassed over 230 million global streams. Those songs include their recent single “Better By Myself,” an intricately layered breakup anthem that backs its bouncy groove with lyrics capturing the complexity of self-care in relationships. With its undeniably dance-ready sonic palette, Hey Violet’s new material also delivers more of the sugary hooks featured on From the Outside, whose widespread praise comes from outlets like Billboard, Nylon, Stereogum, V Magazine and The New York Times (with the latter dubbing it “one of this year’s best and most provocative pop albums”). Along with “Guys My Age” (named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by the New York Times), From the Outside offers such hits as “Break My Heart” and “Hoodie,” now approaching 200 million streams. In addition to earning a nomination for Best Underground Alternative Band at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Hey Violet followed up From the Outside with sold out headline tours of North America and Europe, thrilling their deeply devoted fanbase with their unforgettable and high-energy live set. With more new music due out via Hi Or Hey/Capitol Records this spring, Hey Violet are now gearing up for their first tour since 2017.

Sage
Sage Charmaine pens relatable sexy tunes teaming with wit, sweet melodies and vocals dripping with all things feminine. She’s the new kind of cross-genre artist: a “Sexy Teen Halsey,” crossed with the Lo-fi-vibes of a female Post Malone, the indie rock stylings of Tame Impala, with a dash of old school Paramore.

Sage has learned to encompass her sexiness in her music as a way of empowerment. Writing songs since she was just nine years old, and now at sixteen — she's fine tuned her sound as an artist making for the perfect combo of melodic tunes with equal parts honesty and edge.

Sage released a number of singles in 2018 produced and co-written by PJ Bianco, known for his work with Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony and A R I Z O N A. Her music video for "Not Really" was premiered in Galore magazine and was directed by an all-female crew, a subject important to Sage. Her biggest song to date, "June," premiered via Girlslife magazine. The release was accompanied by a contemporary dance video directed by Brian Friedman (Britney Spears) featuring Sean Lew and Kaycee Rice from JLo's "World of Dance,” and was choreographed by Emmy Award Winner, Tessandra Chavez.

With two more singles released over the summer of 2018, Sage toured several cities including both East and West Coast. In October, she released a remix of her debut single, “Cherries” with Rocky Lynch (The Driver Era) and “Bitter Chocolate” featuring popular female rapper, Cupcakke.

She played alongside Alec Benjamin at Halloween Spooktacular fest, and was a guest performer at Galore Magazine’s 2018 Halloween Party.

In December, Sage joined Bhad Bhabie on her “Bhanned in the USA” tour as direct support for select cities. Sage will release an EP in Spring of 2019 featuring co-writes/production with Rocky Lynch, PJ Bianco and a feature with Lil Aaron.
