PURCHASE TICKETS FOR MADISON BEER’S UK & EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR HERE
26TH January 2018, London, UK: Rising indie pop singer, Madison Beer releases her debut EP, As She Pleases today, as tickets for the UK and European leg of her upcoming headline tour go on sale.
As She Pleases follows the release of featured single ‘Dead’ (which has notched up over 60 million streams to date) and the Fred Ball (Rihanna, Little Mix, Madonna) produced track ‘Say It To My Face’. The seven track EP, co-written by Madison, serves as an embodiment of the teenage experience: from the Monsters & Strangerz (Selena Gomez, Kanye West) produced Teenager in Love and the Tim “One Love” Summers produced Fool, through to the bopping, Big Taste produced Home With You, and the Fight Club inspired, stripped down ballad, Tyler Durden.
“As She Pleases could mean a lot of different things.”, says Madison. “To me it’s about strength, empowerment, and attitude. It’s about trusting in yourself, knowing your worth, and above all else never allowing anyone or anything to break your spirit. Happiness, self love and self empowerment. This is your life. Do as you please... I sure do. This is from my heart, soul, and mind, each song representing a different piece of me.”
The European leg of Madison Beer’s upcoming headline tour will kick off on Milan, Italy on 11th March, and travel through Germany, (Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg), Belgium (Brussells), France (Paris), and the UK (Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Nottingham, Belfast) before wrapping up in Dublin, Ireland on 31st March. It will be Madison’s first live dates in Europe since a string of back to back London shows last summer which sold out within minutes of going on sale. Tickets are available to purchase now from http://listings.ticketmaster.co.uk/madisonbeer
Born and raised in the sedate New York suburb, Jericho, 18-year-old Madison Beer is a multi -talented musician who grew uplistening to 1950s artists (such as Dion and the Belmonts and Santo & Johnny), and idolizing smart, strong artists like Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and SIA for their attitudes as well as for their music. Madison’s first break came thick and fast, when Justin Bieber discovered and shared on twitter her cover version of Etta James’ ‘At Last’ which she’d uploaded to YouTube. Within hours she had a Good Morning America film crew outside her door.
Fast forward five years, and Madison Beer has spent her time honing her musical craft; maintaining and developing her close relationship with her fans (2.5 million+ on twitter, and an eye-popping 10 million+ on Instagram); and dipping her toe in the fashion world - she’s walked the catwalk for D&G, graced the covers of numerous fashion magazines (including Vogue Italia), performed alongside of Liam Gallagher at Vogue’s Fashion Night Out during Milan fashion week, and most recently joined Adriana Lima in Berlin for Maybelline’s ‘Urban Catwalk – Faces of New York’.
Madison is a priority artist for First Access Entertainment (founded by Sarah Stennett and home to Ellie Goulding, Zane and Rita Ora to name but a few), who share her independently driven trailblazing spirit.

NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
LISTEN ON STREAMING SERVICES HERE
Swedish singer and producer Becky & The Birds has today released her debut single ‘Holding On’.
The song is a genre-spanning blend of lush electronics, with nods to trip-hop and ‘90s R&B alongside beautiful samples plucked from nature. The result is similar to the likes of SZA, Solange or Ella Fitzgerald.
Becky & The Birds is the moniker of Thea Gustafsson, the 21-year-old from Örebro who writes, produces and sings all of her own music and attended the prestigious Musikmakarna Songwriters Academy of Sweden, which kickstarted the careers of LÉON and Skott.
Thea has already clocked up millions of streams as a topline vocalist in high profile collaborations, however these relentless sessions with all-male producers began to grate on her. “I always had this voice inside me—society’s voice—that was like ‘No, you can't, 'cos you're a girl, that's for the boys’” she explains.
“I was like, I can't do this any more—having all these dudes mansplaining, sitting with their spread legs,” Thea says. “I was just so frustrated. When you have a really clear vision yourself, it's difficult to compromise.
At one particularly bad session with a producer – “I felt the whole panic that you feel when you think you're not good enough“ – it led her to develop a whole new guise; Becky & The Birds.
Taking responsibility for production, Becky & The Birds sees Thea in full control of her work, rejecting the pop saturated sound of her native Sweden and resulting in a true-to-self, multifaceted project.
Where pop tends to value visibility, Becky & The Birds favours obscurity. Casting a new personal signature with Becky & The Birds, Thea expresses her unique, genuine experiences in a sensual new sound.

Lil Peep’s musical legacy continues today with the release of “Spotlight,” his new track with Producer and DJ, Marshmello. The collaboration, which the pair started working on prior to his passing, is now available on all platforms. Marshmello, who recently completed “Spotlight,” is set to perform the song tonight during his San Francisco show at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. You can stream “Spotlight” here: http://lilpeep.lnk.to/spotlight
The release of “Spotlight” follows Peep’s mother, Liza Womack’s intentions to continue to release the music and visuals that Peep had planned to in 2018. In keeping with that promise, she immediately requested that Marshmellofinish the project.
Marshmello was honored to collaborate with Peep and commented on his experience, saying “Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met. We started an idea together, that unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.”
Liza recently discovered Peep’s high school senior essay from 2013 where he wrote about cultural resistance and how it affected his music. He shared, “In my life I find [cultural resistance] very important and vital to me growing as a person, because my art will always grow with me. If someone were to limit the growth of my art and ideas, I wouldn’t be able to express who I am the way I want to.” Liza has expressed her deep gratitude to Marshmello for agreeing to share “Spotlight” with Peep’s fans, continuing to allow Peep’s voice to be heard through his art.

In honor of Lil Peep’s prolific body of work and his spirit of sharing his music, his mother, Liza Womack, has released a video for “Save That Shit.” In a statement, Liza revealed, “It's been a hard time for all of us who loved Gus and we are going through the process of coming to terms with our loss.

So today, we are starting that process by releasing the video for “Save That Shit.”
The video, directed by Peep’s close friends and collaborators Mezzy (who directed “Girls” and “Benz Truck”) and Heavyrayn (who filmed him extensively over the tour), features appearances from his song muse Emma and friend Rose, mixed with concert and tour footage. “The ultimate goal here to me is to do anything that we can to spread Gus’ music and to color inside of the lines he created through his art,” stated Mezzy.

LISTEN TO GOLDEN HERE TO
At the age of just 19 years old, singer/ song-writer Kara Marni is set to make her mark on the world, with her uniquely modern RnB sound, tinged with the vocal inflections of the vintage hey-day of Soul, and Pop.
Releasing her debut single ‘Golden’ today via Wonderland Magazine, the young vocalist found inspiration in the uncomplicated ‘honeymoon’ period of a relationship. The song speaks volumes of talent; the perfect introduction to the quite frankly awe-inspiring vocal abilities of Kara Marni.
Having grown up obsessed by Minnie Riperton, Kara’s desire to hone her singing voice was overwhelming. She set up a leopard print lined shed studio at the end of her garden, and began to cover her favourite artists from Roberta Flack to Anita Baker, Amy Winehouse, Jazmine Sullivan, Lauryn Hill and more.
Introducing herself to her own creativity, Kara enrolled in Brit School and began to write her own material, moving from strength to strength, and catching the eyes of the likes of UK Producer Maths Time Joy, MNEK, and more.
Finding herself in the studio with The Invisible Men (Rita Ora, Britney Spears, Iggy Azalea), Kara wrote “Golden”, and has unknowingly flung herself firmly into the realms of ‘one to watch’ for 2018.
Stay tuned for more from Kara Marni.
