Charleston SC based musician, Emily Curtis has released her new soul pop single “Battleshade” off her upcoming EP titled “Hindsight” coming out Nov. 10. Check out the single here:
The video, directed by Chris Viera, scenes flash between the many sides that comprise a woman: insecurity, comparison, liberation, frustration, confidence and beauty. The lyrics in “Battleshade” is a rallying call for all women who have dealt with discrimination and was written by Curtis as a response to her own insecurities about pursuing music. She said, “Remember me. Say you will. I’ll leave a mark. It won’t fade. It’s such a bold statement to make about yourself, but singing those phrases does something in me that makes me feel brave.”

The resulting experience will leave the listener with introspective feelings of individuality as Curtis’s strong suit is her ability to share her own bravery through soulful lyrics of empowerment and self-acceptance.

Josh has toured at SXSW and headlined for big-name festivals such as Miami Music Week and a Northside Festival showcase at Knitting Factory Brooklyn. Throughout his touring, he has proven to be a sensation on stage that goes beyond what you hear on record. Josh will be playing a few select shows in October. Check out the dates and venues below:

The International Week of the Deaf begins on the 18th and the video serves as a way to show how music can be enjoyed and felt without words.The band will be donating the profit from the first week of sales and streaming to the Nyle DiMarco Foundation; a non-profit who works to improve the lives of deaf people.
Broke Royal members Philip Basnight and Colin Cross were inspired by the unspoken emotional response to seeing a loved one after a long day and the importance of reconnecting. Basnight said the album’s name represents a confidence and assurance for the band’s future.
“When we started recording music we didn’t know that there would be such a stirring creative chemistry, but by the time we made the album we had found our sound,” Basnight said.
