New Music Friday: Conor Gains, Jaz Elise - Feat: Mortimer, Gryffin & Audrey Mika, Mi Casa & YouNotUs, The Cold Stares, Gary Kemp, Amanda Cooksey

Conor Gains is the full package. The Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has been selling out music venues since his teens and today he announces his debut EP on Wax Records titled "Three." Gains shares the bluesy lead single and video "Light Shine In." With an effortless sound that combines modern R&B soulfulness with the swagger of southern rock and pop, "Light Shine In" is a rollicking stomp with sizzling melodies and gritty lyrics. 

Rising Jamaican singers Jaz Elise and Mortimer appear in a new visual for "After 3," their sonic exchange exuding an unrelenting passion and yearning between two people. The single, produced by iotosh, is a testament to the limitless exploration of sound coming from the island right now. The soulful ballad is from Jaz Elise's debut EP "The Golden Hour," out now via In.Digg.Nation Collective/Six Course Music/RCA Records. 

Multi-Instrumentalist and producer Gryffin unites with Pop singer Audrey Mika for their infectious new single, "Safe With Me." The song has garnered over 23M streams worldwide. 

"Chucks," the heavy-hitting collab by the South African band Mi Casa and Berlin multi-platinum selling EDM duo YouNotUs was released two weeks ago. They drop the highly-anticipated video that was shot recently in Namibia during a weekend getaway between the two international groups. Hailing from Johannesburg, SA, Mi Casa have won the South African Music Awards for Group of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Dance Album, and recently signed to Astralwerks.

With the release of their blistering new single "Hard Times," the Indiana based blues-rock duo The Cold Stares offer the first taste of their new set of material, slated for release in late 2021 via new label partner, Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.

Gary Kemp releases his first single, “Ahead of the Game,” off of his upcoming album, "Insolo." This is the second solo album by Spandau Ballet songwriter and Saucerful Of Secrets guitarist and co-lead vocalist, As the songwriter & guitarist in one of the most iconic bands of the 80’s, Spandau Ballet, Gary became one of the most commercially successful writers of the decade.

Amanda Cooksey's bubbly pop-country persona shines through in the music video for her newest single, "In Denial." Filmed right outside of her hometown in Florida, the video amplifies the 50's inspired melody, written by Cooksey and her co-writers Michael August, Austin Nivarel and Steve Lester.
