Portland-based Micki XO is a pop singer-songwriter who mixes alternative pop with art pop. Her music covers many subjects like mental health and relationships.

On October 10th, she came out with her newest release Fake Gold. The song is about struggles she had felt like she couldn’t escape the effects of her mental illness and the constant fear of something happening, putting her right back at square one.

I like the unique metaphor in this song, and the music sets the tone for the rest of the article. The bridge is excellent and capturing. I love the piece overall, and it’s a great message.

I recommend this song to fans of Chelsea Cutler and other modern female artists. If you like what you hear, please feel free to like and follow the links below.

Canadian-based Danielle Mattachini is a singer-songwriter who mixes alternative with contemporary pop. She is inspired and compared to Taylor Swift, Julia Michaels, Olivia Rodrigo, and others.

On November 4th, Danielle came out with her newest single, Never Be The Same. The song was written two years after I recovered from a devastating breakup, showcasing her journey to self-love.

Before starting this song, I had to take a deep breath as I’m struggling with this. But when I pressed play, I felt empowered. The music is beautiful, and this song should be on the radio.

You will love this song if you are a fan of Taylor Swift, Chelsea Cutler, and other empowering voices of today. If you like this song, please leave a like and follow below.

Torshavn-based Eyai Horsdal is a singer-songwriter who mixes relaxing alternative and indie folk. He grew up listening and is inspired by Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon, Teitur, and others.

On November 10th, Eyai released his newest single, Foolish Blue. The single is the 4th of the much-anticipated debut album, Songs with Eva, which will be released next year.

Eyai’s vocals sound eerily like JR August, haunting. I wouldn’t call this studying music in my book, and I would call this more coffee house music. I also would like the song to be a little longer, but that might be because I like the song.

I recommend this song to fans of James Bay and JR August. If you like what you hear, then like and follow the links below.

On September 20th, Kelsie released her newest single, Right Place Wrong Time. The single is an anthem for the heartbroken and the means to rebuild through a powerful sensory experience.

WOW, I love this song. I would look out for this artist and watch her for the future of music. I love the vocals, beat, and everything about it. The music video is above; watch it. It makes the song even more powerful.

If you like powerful and empowering music, definitely listen to this single. If you like what you hear, leave a like and follow below.
