Toronto, ON – Canadian singer-songwriter Jordan Hart will release his debut EP ‘’Only Pieces of the Truth’’ on March 12th via Believe. On the self-produced EP, Hart exposes the desire we all share to feel connected to ourselves and each other. Through each song, he explores the highs and the lows of finding that connection in spite of our own selfish motives and pride.
The Gold-certified, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist worked with countless producers and arrangers over the years. Despite those incredible opportunities, no pieces of music truly felt like his sound. Hart was still looking for what would be his musical identity when he met the AllPoints team. Through his multiple conversations with his new creative team, he was advised to begin with a self-produced body of work. After 6 months of blood sweat and tears, Hart pieced together all the parts of himself and finally his sound. The experience birthed his new EP ‘’Only Pieces of the Truth’’.
The title track is an emotive, mid paced and gentle song with gloriously sweeping arrangements. ‘’The central character realizes that all he wants to do is be vulnerable and that he is “holding all the cards, wishing you could see inside his walls,’’ said Hart. ‘’But even still, and especially because the stakes are so high, he can’t bring himself to take the first steps forward toward repairing the relationship (“staring at your door, I’ll never knock”).’’
Toronto, ON - Buzzed-about newcomer and “one of Country music’s most promising young stars,” (Whiskey Riff), Lainey Wilson announced her hotly-anticipated studio album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ is set to release February 19 via BBR Music Group/Broken Bow Records. Those who pre-order the album will immediately have access to the brand-new track and album opener, “Neon Diamonds” (a song which a prominent tv booker said he hadn’t “heard a more perfect ‘grab-you-in’ start to an album since Thriller”). LISTEN HERE.
Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ includes her current radio single, “Things A Man Oughta Know,” which has garnered more than 35 million streams, earning a place on Spotify’s Nashville’s Worldwide Hot 50 and has been in the Top 5 consumption per spin and streams per spin for the past 17 consecutive weeks. A fan and critic favorite, the song was featured in NPR’s Best Music of 2019 saying it, “proves [Wilson] capable of blending a thoroughly countrified vocal approach with digitally sharpened contemporary production, thanks to the suppleness and body of her honeyed, crystalline twang.”
Understanding your rights including how to legally protect yourself (whether it be as an artist, employee, songwriter ... ) in the music industry can be a complex and confusing endeavor. In this workshop they will run through a checklist of the top 5 legal do’s and dont’s. They will also cover topics like: how to pick the right lawyer, when to get something in writing, tips for negotiation, and more.
Then they will open up for a lengthy Q&A where you can get feedback on your most pressing legal questions.
