A SAD GIRL SHOW FOR SAD GIRL SLOAN
12/14/18

BY NICOLE GHAPGHARAN

L.A.’s intimate Moroccan Lounge welcomed Sasha Sloan for back-to-back sold-out shows on 12/4 and 12/5. Following the release of new EP Loser (11/29), the songstress clearly succeeded in closing out the year with gusto. 

Sloan keeps it real, cutting through with incredible relatability. Between asking the crowd if they're “ready to be sad tonight” and hitting her Juul halfway through a song, it’s no wonder she’s solidified herself as an artist to watch. She's human, and you just want to hang out with her. And while she poured her emotions on the stage, the audience swayed and wiped their tears together, myself included.

For those unaware, the pop maverick’s first solo release “Ready Yet” did manage to propel her career. However, she's been an established writer for some time now, thanks to her work penning songs for the likes of Camila Cabello and Tinashe.

Opener Chloe Lilac, whose first-ever release, “Reckless,” broke the Top 5 on Spotify's U.S. Viral 50, delivered a dreamy set that included newest track “Stolen Liquor” and standout closer “Summer.”

You can catch the Hills Artist-repped Sloan on her first North American headline tour starting in March of next year, but in the meantime, check out Loser below.

AWAL ACQUIRES VOS
12/13/18

AWAL has inked a worldwide deal with L.A. singer, songwriter and visual artist Ella Vos. The deal includes global marketing, campaign coordination and global distribution for Vos and hwyl records, the Lewis Hughes helmed label focused on developing new talent.

Vos has amassed 50m+ streams from her most recent EP Castaway, and over 200m streams collectively since her debut single “White Noise” in 2016.

“Ella Vos has experienced tremendous growth since her debut and consistently distinguishes herself as a creative force to take note of,” says Ron Cerrito, AWAL President, North America. “We are proud to support her on upcoming projects as she embarks on the next phase of her career as an independent artist.”

SHOW ALERT: LAURA JEAN ANDERSON
12/10/18

Laura Jean Anderson is gearing up for her headline show at L.A.'s Bootleg on 12/11 by dropping a new live rendition of her EP's title track, “Lonesome No More.” And the video, which features an emotionally transparent Anderson, really manages to pull on those heart strings.

The EP, which dropped this fall via B3SCI Records, consists of seven tracks marked by vivid lyrics and an almost-nostalgic sound. Pulling inspiration from classic '70s rock, soul and folk Americana, Anderson’s voice—simultaneously sweet and powerful—complements each and every track uniquely.
