This week for my artist of the week, I chose Cruel Youth. The band is comprised of Teddy Sinclair, formally known as Natalia Kills, and her husband Willy Moon. Both Sinclair and Moon were judges on the Australian version of X-factor before being fired for verbally assaulting one of the contestants. Teddy Sinclair released two full length albums under the name Natalia Kills and has written for artists such as Madonna and Rihanna. The name of their second single off their untitled EP is ‘Diamond Days’ Check it out below!
This week for my artist of the week, I chose Mother Feather. From New York City and made up of vocalist Ann Courtney, the group also includes keyboardist and vocalist Elizabeth Carena, bassist Matt Basile, guitarist Chris Foley, and drummer Gunnar Olsen. They released 3 independent EP’s in 2011, 2012, and 2014 before being signed. They released their debut album earlier this month and it includes all the songs from their EP’s plus 2 new songs. I would describe their sound as Glam Meets Rock. Check out the first song of their debut album. Living, Breathing.
