“Burn (Ellie Goulding cover)” by Aurah

Now based in California, Aurah is comprised of Switzerland’s gems, Marc Dold and Judith (Jude) Martin. Their dreamy signature sound is interwoven between ambient and modern electronica.

Their debut album, Kismet, hit the music scene when Marc and Jude were fresh out of the Berklee College of Music. It caught the attention of the entertainment industry and several tracks landed on hit TV shows like Sex and the City. That experience eventually opened the door for them to create additional tracks that were licensed to other shows, and films including Blood Diamond, Little Miss Sunshine and Blood & Chocolate.

Today, Jude is proud to present the band’s newest song, a dream cover version of Ellie Goulding’s Burn.

The 12 tracks on this album are biting songs unafraid of their own emotional importance. If you’re immune to melody and a fan of lyrics about nights where the fun never stops, stay away from this album. If you hate having songs stuck in your head, stay away from this album. If you’re afraid of sincerely caring about an artist more than just his trend potential, good lord, stay away.

“Who We Are” by Sonali Argade

Singer-songwriter, Sonali Argade, recently released her new music video for “Who We Are,” the single off her new EP, Wake Up.

Argade’s writing style and musical tastes have evolved since her last release in 2012, titled Speechless. Some of her growth as an artist can be attributed to her attendance at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Plus, some has to do with experiencing the Big Apple.

Wake Up was released in February of this year. The album is an eclectic mix of folky pop-rock, reminiscent of both Mumford & Sons and Colbie Caillat.

Dedicated studies, including jazz guitar at the Players School of Music, Berklee College of Music’s Five Week Summer Performance Program for Voice, and her current studies at NYU have propelled Sonali’s knowledge and ambitions. In addition, she is armed with an arsenal of raw talent, technical know-how and resilient focus.

“We Belonged” by Stoney

The distinctive songwriting talent of the critically acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, Mark Stoney, has been held in high regard among many in the know on both sides of the Atlantic for some time now. And, his new album More Than Animals demonstrates his natural Brit-pop sensibilities refined with profoundly intimate lyrics and melodic arrangements that burst with passion, personality, and depth.

Stoney’s keen ear for classic pop melody combined with a sharp lyrical potency and rare ability to effectively blend genres from folk to rock to trip-hoppy-electronica earned him a loyal following in the city that spawned such acts as Arctic Monkeys.

Despite his growing success, Stoney decided to cross the pond to Texas, following a performance at the world renowned SXSW festival. Shortly after, he unexpectedly re-emerged with a new musical act called “Bobby Jealousy”. Co- founded with neighbor and friend Seth Gibbs and local punk firecracker Sabrina Ellis, the trio of songwriters combined classic pop songwriting with a punk energy and soulful melodies to great effect. Defining the term “Dirt-Pop”, Bobby Jealousy quickly became one of Austin’s most lauded bands for their originality and rigorous live shows. In 2012, the band released an album and toured both U.S. coasts before Stoney parted ways to resume his solo work.
