Jaime Kyle Shares Her Single ‘Untangled’
Reflecting on her song, Jaime herself believes “’Untangled’ feels like a private conversation with myself that others get to witness: The moment between going and gone.
“The video is set in a beautiful meditation labyrinth that lies in a secret location in Northern California. This means that I get to invite the listener/viewer into my personal world.”
LEVARA and Mascot Records present Automatic, the lead single from the band’s debut studio album coming May 14, 2021.
Trev Lukather, Jules Galli and Josh Devine are LEVARA. Their songs offer an escape, as all music does, with points of reflection that relate to any listener’s life. The collective hope is simple. To be the catalyst for each and every person who comes across the music to find revelations through the experience of hearing these songs.
Their union merged in Los Angeles, one The World’s epicentres of musical creativity. Singer Jules Galli emigrated from France, while drummer Josh Devine chose L.A. as home versus his native United Kingdom following success behind the kit with One Direction. There they found common vision with Trev Lukather (guitar), son of Toto’s Steve Lukather, one of SoCal’s most successful ensembles to ever emerge from the city.

Afton Wolfe, genre-defying Mississippian singer-songwriter announces debut album ‘Kings for Sale’, produced by Grammy-winner Oz Fritz (European Release Date: June 18 2021)
Afton Wolfe is Mississippi. Born in McComb, and growing up in Meridian, Hattiesburg, and Greenville, Mississippi, the roots of American music are in his DNA. Mississippi is the birthplace of at least three American art forms: country music, blues music, and rock and roll. Afton spent his musically formative years in and around New Orleans, where the humidity of the Mississippi combined with the Cajun seasonings, the jazz, zydeco, creole, and gospel music and his Mississippi roots coalesce to add resonance and depth to his blues/country/rock influences.
