New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Cooper Phillip

Cooper Phillip is a pop/soul singer from Los Angeles.

She has music in her blood, as her mother was a master violin player, who toured with various symphonies. That touring meant that Cooper had to live with her grandmother and aunt for many years, until she was 12 years old.

Cooper found comfort in music during the seperation, particularly in Ella Fitzgerald's music, and she went on to learn Ella's songs inside out.

EP Review - Home by Ebony Day

Home by Ebony Day is a three track EP and was released online on 18th May 2017.

The three tracks on the EP all cover different aspects of love, wanting to find love, and finding love.

When the first song "Collide" starts you are greeted with the familiar voice, a unique voice, that is most definitely Ebony Day, accompanied by the familiar sound of her guitar, but as that first song progresses it really takes the music up a notch and at 1 minute 25 seconds becomes really beautiful.

EP Review - Wonderland by Jasmine Thompson

Wonderland by Jasmine Thompson is an eight track EP and was released online on 19th March 2017.

Upon seeing the track listings, before initially playing it, I saw that the first track was called Wonderland (intro), and I thought it was one of those tiny intros that artists use at the start of an album that's only a minute or so long, leading in to the complete track. But this intro is a full blown track lasting 3 minutes and 40 seconds and I really like it. The actual intro to the track is fairly long, but really calming and soothing, and quite beautiful to listen to.

Latest Featured Artist on YTA ~ Sabrina Salice

Sabrina Salice is a singer and pianist from Mooresville, North Carolina, but she moved to New York in 2015.

She is a classically trained mezzo-soprano, which when combined with a pop/classic rock sound creates quite unique vocals.

When checking out Sabrina's videos, I was really drawn in by her cover of "Versace On The Floor".
