ReverbNation Discover | Here's How Maren Morris Happened

12th February 2018 | Music

ReverbNation Discover is our brand new radio show on W!ZARD Radio Station, on Friday evenings from 7pm (GMT).

The radio show is the new place to discover fresh new artists, as well as to gain music industry insight and expertise on how to fulfil your music career ambitions – with help from ReverbNation’s platform for new artists and it’s expert insight into all different aspects of the music industry.

One of the artists who is on the rise right now and got their start on ReverbNation is Maren Morris.


Having first broken through with her single ‘My Church’ (which ended up winning Best Country Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards), Maren Morris is on her way to becoming a global name, having most recently completed a sold out World Tour and featuring on the new single by Zedd, ‘The Middle’.

For Maren Morris, it all started on ReverbNation when she released her five song self-titled EP, which gained 2.5 million streams on Spotify within a month and earned her a record deal with the legendary Columbia Nashville.

Now three Grammy nominations, one Grammy Award, a CMA Award and a slot on Saturday Night Live later - Maren Morris is poised to be the next global superstar.


On ReverbNation Discover, James Gilmore tracked Maren Morris’ rise from obscure to award-winning, and now her cross-over to mainstream success outside of the USA.

New Music We Love: Marshmello & Anne-Marie are the big one, Felix Jaehn is cool and Calvin Harris is "versatile"

9th February 2018 | Music

In the modern music industry that we live in today it seems like it’s now a “thing” that there’s one big release each week and the others are just, really, the others. Luckily, Marshmello and Anne-Marie have come in the last minute to fill the hole as this week’s “big one”.

Featured Track: Marshmello & Anne-Marie – FRIENDS

Any song that is titled in all capital letters is immediately cool, so Marshmello and Anne-Marie (an unlikely coupling) have already won on that front. The meaning of the song is revealed in the first 15 seconds, repeated multiple times during the show and is literally spelt out half way through - Anne-Marie is only FRIENDS with you.

The song is a banger, if not only a bit too safe. Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of Anne-Marie, but like someone we once knew called Anne-Marie, we got bored quite quickly. Also, this song is unlikely anything that Marshmello has ever done before so we’re not quite sure what that means.


Other Good Ones

Felix Jaehn – Cool (feat. Marc E. Bassy & Gucci Mane): We can’t help but think that Felix Jaehn is one of the most underrated producers and that Marc E. Bassy is one of the most underrated new pop artists. On the other hand, Gucci Mane literally says the D word in this song.

Calvin Harris – Nuh Ready Nuh Ready (feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR): One of those ‘surprise releases’, our mate Calvin has only gone and changed his sound completely again! Wow, a versatile producer? Twitter’s going to hate that.

Grace Carter – Silhouette: We featured Ms Carter as part of our BPI Future Fresh series long before he debut single ‘Silence’ gained 5.7M streams. On ‘Ashes’ she…
