Katéa
Katéa
Katéa, The Helsinki, Finland-based chanteuse is one of the most inspiring new female artists to emerge in recent years and is poised for global success. Katéas Scandinavian origin brings in the wistful and profound features of northern mentality and combines it with international pop-scene. Her uniquely deep and vivid voice soars through the music and has a clear, easily recognizable own signature sound differencing her from the other big names in pop genres. Katéa has already impressed everyone with her amazingly wide vocal-register and true professionalism, which she has gained by performing and making music since the age of nine.
Katéa wields great songs, original and charismatic stage presence and a unique artistic vision that sets the creative bar very high. This stunningly talented young singer recently signed to a worldwide publishing deal with BMG Scandinavia. Katéa has written some great songs including her co-written debut single, “’That Ain’t Love,’” together with hot Swedish writer/producer team Moneybridge. The single was released in spring 2015 and it got massive positive attention in music media and aroused praising in different music related releases.
"'That Ain't Love' is a bombastic, soaring introduction to a special artist” – Clash
Year 2016 has already been a busy one for Katéa. She performed in February at Eurosonic festival in Netherlands, which is one of the biggest European music industry events that seeks out new talent. The trip was a great success, and brought up new collaborators within European scene.
Katéa released her debut EP, "Louder" including five songs on April 22nd. Second single “Louder” was released in April 8th. Katéa has been co-writing the material with some of the hippest Swedish teams, which include “The Family” and “Swedish Attack”. Besides the EP, Katéa has been busy writing new music and already has the strong material for a full album.

Ben Hazlewood
Ben Hazlewood
Contemporary pop. Classic rock. Many points in between. At 26, Ben Hazlewood is a fiercely independent singer and songwriter who has the experience of someone twice his age, and a broad love of music that makes his own something timeless and wholly distinctive amidst a sea of aspiring voices -- as evidenced by his new single, "Wanted."

The New Zealand native has been singing since he was five years old and never considered a Plan B. He was a finalist on "The Voice" in Australia and has worked the globe from London to Nashville, where he recorded "Wanted" and its predecessor "Paint Me Black" with longtime collaborator and friend Duncan Sparks. "'Wanted' is a song about unrequited love and the angst and frustration, the desperation that comes with it," Hazlewood says. "It's a powerful plea to the person you feel more for than you have ever felt before. The last cry for a change that you anticipate may never come."

"Wanted" is the beginning of plenty to come from Hazlewood, who has recorded a wealth of material for his first album, targeted for an early 2016 release. Stay tuned...
