ReverbNation Discover | Here's How Jasmine Thompson Happened

8th April 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 Jasmine Thompson.

Jasmine Thompson shot to the limelight after her cover of Chaka Khan's 'Ain't Nobody' was picked up by Sainsbury's to be featured in an advert, a couple of years later it was then remixed by producer Felix Jaehn which thrust it to #2 on the UK Singles Charts as well as going Gold in the UK, Platinum in Australia and 2x Platinum in Denmark.

After having released a series of singles and EPs - including one on ReverbNation - she was picked up by Atlantic Records who released her 'Adore' EP and, more recently, 2017's 'Wonderland' EP, which included single 'Old Friends'. Before this, she also featured in Robin Schulz's globally charting single 'Sun Goes Down' in 2014.

Now, as she gets ready for the next step in her career, with new music due later this year, Jasmine Thompson is stepping out as a singer-songwriter to be reckoned with, having already had the best part of 5 years of music industry experience under her belt.

On ReverbNation Discover, James Gilmore tracked Jasmine Thompson's rise from YouTube covers to topping charts.

New Music We Love: Justin Bieber is on a new track, Elton John brings a revamp and we need to talk about Jared

6th April 2018 | Music

If you can believe it, there was a short period of time when we couldn’t work out what song would be our featured ‘New Music We Love’ track this week. But then it become obvious: THERE’S A NEW JUSTIN BIEBER FEATURE.

Featured Song: Poo Bear – Hard 2 Face Reality (feat. Justin Bieber & Jay Electronica)

Anybody even thinking about making jokes about an artist called ‘Poo Bear’ needs some serious music education – the producer-turned-artist is responsible for some of our generation’s biggest hits, including most of Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ album.

The new track comes after Skrillex collaboration ‘Would You Ever’ and features Justin Bieber for the first time since we heard the, somewhat, disastrous ‘2U’ by David Guetta (which, admittedly, Poo Bear wrote). Anyway, great track, great lead feature, very exciting future.

Other Good Ones

Florence & The Machine – Tiny Dancer: Taken from Elton John’s new album ‘Revamp’ (which sees the likes of Alessia Cara, Ed Sheeran and Demi Lovato cover popular Elton songs), this Florence cover nearly stole the title of ‘featured song of the week’ for us. We also love Alessia’s version of ‘I Guess Why They Call It The Blues’, but Florence nearly reduces us to tears in this powerful cover, which – whilst not difficult to do at 1am on a Friday morning – is an achievement nonetheless.

Sabrina Claudio – Don’t Let Me Down (feat. Khalid): She’s good, isn’t she! Claudio first got attention last year with her album ‘About Time’, and if this is a taste of anything to come, then she has a very bright future ahead. Also, what a perfect collaboration? Whoever came up with pairing her with Khalid deserves… well, they deserve a song as brilliant as this!

Alec Feldman Thinks That Craig David Is A Fraud

1st April 2018 | Music

Alec Feldman is a bit obsessed with Craig David. As he likes to make clear at every opportunity.

But this week, Craig tried to get away with something so ridiculous that Alec had to call him out on.

He released a video, of him getting on to a “random” London bus and giving them a mini-concert. But Alec didn’t believe it was real for one second.

Click play below to find out why, and what he wants to do about it.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
