Jesse’s Digging a New One From Out of Malmo; Let’s Call His Latest Discovery The Girl Who Sang With Passion
By Jesse Beer-Dietz

SPOTLIGHT
Sandra Di Amante
(http://www.myspace.com/sandradiamante): Who's Fooling Who, the full-length debut of this Swedish singer/songwriter, is a powerful and emotional experience that engulfs the listener and invites them into her world of poetry and music. Most of the songs deal with highly personal subject matter but with a sense of irony and a healthy self-distance. The texture of her soulful voice possesses an edgy urgency that never fails to draw the listener in. She recently wrote the winning song for this year's Eurovision 2011 contest—and that’s essentially the European version of winning the Grammy for Song of the Year. We’re also hearing she’s just signed a publishing deal with BMG Rights Management.

BUZZIN’
Radio Silence NYC (
http://radiosilencenyc.com): We were recently turned on to these pop/rockers from…well, you can guess where they’re based, and we’re diggin’ the sounds big-time. Check out the track “Renegade,” and contact Matthew Hines at Rebel One Management: [email protected].
