Indianapolis hip hop artist Willis, just released his Game Of Thrones inspired music video for "Stories of Old". Willis produced the record himself, as he does all of his music, engineered it, mixed it, and mastered it himself. He wrote and directed the video, which was filmed by Ball State University film aficionado Nevin Markitan, who's developed a reputation for himself after having a few of his videos featured on Indianapolis news stations and media sources. This medieval short film stars up-and-coming actor Sam Anderson as the "hero" being chased by the armor-clad "villain" played by fellow Indianapolis rapper, Paper Cleveland. This video is a perfect reflection of Willis’ personality as the quiet smart kid you’d never picture rapping. It’s now safe to identify Willis as one of the most thought-provoking rappers in the city of Indianapolis. Even without the city-backing expected from such a high performing artist, Willis is providing a fresh approach to hip-hop all by being himself and being honest about it. Isn’t that all we ask for?

In the fast-paced world of rap music, some artists are lucky enough to have opportunities fall into their lap and blow up instantly. Then you have the ones who have to toil behind-the-scenes before they finally get their chance to shine. K Camp, the man behind the hit singles “Money Baby” and “Cut Her Off” can relate to being a little bit of both. With his newest single, “Rockstar Crazy,” K Camp is proving that it is no longer about luck, just his determination and unrelenting skills behind the mic.
The new video, “Rockstar Crazy,” (premiered via WorldStar) is drops a fiery piece of minimalist opulence that gives K Camp the opportunity to light up the screen and show that his larger than life persona is enough to fill the screen. Set deep in the desert flats out west K Camp spits endless fire with just a few select props to illustrate just how bodacious he can be. A Fender Strat, a sexy lady on his arm, and an over-the-top fur coat are all hallmarks of the “rock star” lifestyle repurposed for K Camp, who definitively shows that this hip hop artist is more of a rockstar than any modern rock band!

Canadian artist Lindi Ortega is back with a new EP 'Til The Goin' Gets Gone'. The EP is set for release this Friday, 17th March, and it's her most atmospheric and resilient body of work to date. The title track addresses the detours and ditches a traveling musician faces, expressed evocatively through Lindi's hypnotic soprano.
Vocalist Brandon Eisenbeis explains, "'Anyways' is about walking away from anything that's not working and starting fresh. We can all relate to that. We really wanted to express that in the concept for the video." Directed by Ryan Pesecky ( http://ryanpesecky.com ), the video is a visually stunning piece of art, with heartfelt storyline. "The video pushes new breath into the song, to a point where we understand it better as a band," adds guitarist Dave Orton. "I don't think we were expecting that, actually - I know we weren't."
Produced by Jim Kaufman [Night Riots, Beware of Darkness, Emery] and Kenny Carkeet, "Anyways" thrives with its gigantic, addictive pop hook and 90's alt-bubblegum, yet soulful sound. The single debuted earlier this year with prominent youth outlet Twist Magazine , who told its' readers, "you're about to become obsessed with [Varsity Week's] infectious music."
We entered a contest for !llmind The Producer called "Oh You Rap?". And out of hundreds of submissions, WE MADE THE TOP 5!! Now as we didn't win you can imagine how excited a couple kids from Kokomo, IN would be to get this type of love and recognition. We wanted to give the song it's just due as we felt it was a very strong song. So we decided to shoot a video for it.

A beautiful product of Panamanian-American heritage, singer-songwriter Veronica King rehashes classic, soulful R&B with a silken voice that conjures nostalgic vibes, prompts good times, and ignites familiarity. Her debut single, “Ice Cream Sundae”, captures the essence of a fun-loving, teenage love affair, while simultaneously evoking the sensuality of a mature, romantic relationship. The music video for “Ice Cream Sundae” takes the story of the song a step further from the point of view of a young man taking Veronica out on several romantic outings. The visuals combined with the lyrics demonstrate how he makes her laugh, smile, experience complete bliss while they are together, and, of course, “melt like an ice cream sundae” from his expressions of love.
“Ice Cream Sundae” was conceived when a producer from Jazmine Sullivan’s last album, Reality Show, connected with King and her writing team through social media. The instrumentation stirred their imaginations to the experience of falling in love. After some dedicated writing sessions, King and her team were motivated to push forward with this radio-ready ballad.
Heavily influenced by the musical genius of Stevie Wonder, Bob James, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson, and the late Aaliyah, Veronica King hones in on creating a unique and unforgettable sound that blends her eclectic, musical taste with Electronica and the sounds of today. Veronica is an explorer, thinker, dreamer – and her music dares to touch on love, both lost and found, passion, and life’s trying obstacles. In this way, Veronica King celebrates positivity in all aspects of her life and allows her music to precede her and inspire others.
Teamed up with DCTOP20, the songstress looks forward to hitting the stage this 2017 and making waves domestically and overseas. Though King by birthright, the rest of the world will soon know Veronica King as the Indie Queen of R&B. Stay tuned for Veronica King’s debut EP, which will be released this spring 2017.
