Pureland is Silverbird's debut album and is released on September 18th 2015.

Songwriter Tim Barr founded Silverbird after spending several years on New York's vibrant music scene playing gigs as part of Lana Del Rey’s band, opening for The Blow, and studying and playing with Dizzy Gillespie’s pianist protegee Mike Longo.

Barr and English producer Kristopher Harris recorded Silverbird’s debut EP 'Surface Life', released in May 2014 to critical acclaim. Joined by Corey Davis on bass, Dan Whaley on lead guitar and Jacob Schuab on drums, Silverbird were soon selling out venues across NYC. With influences as diverse as Wilco, Heartless Bastards, and Sparklehorse, their music strides fearlessly through an ever changing emotional landscape. Infectious melodies and swirling, intricate rhythms combine to provide an absolutely enchanting soundscape.

2015 has already been incredibly busy for the band. The year started with two packed shows at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and Black Bear, with many more shows and a tour to come. The track 'With the Spirits' from Surface Life was selected for the All Saints spring playlist and the song will be played in their 110 worldwide stores for three months. Tim is also featured on the packaging for Cakewalk’s Sonar Artist production software.

Their feature track off of 'Pureland' is titled Lyfe which will not be released until the fall can be heard on Jamsterdam Radio during The New Music Show airing daily at 8am/8pm EST.

Online ranter and video blogger Walz from WalzRantz.com has voiced his opinion on the beef between Meek Mill and Drake.

People are patiently waiting for a response from Meek Mill after Drake blasted him with a couple diss tracks. For the full story see Charged Up Drake Drops Back to Back.

Walz points out that Meek Mill is using his fiance Nicki Minaj just for publicity. "Meek is being fake, using his girl to get promotion... Why don't you just be famous off of your own shit." Walz continues, "You make fun of Drake, you get more star power... you glorify your relationship with Nicki Minaj, you get more star power". Check out the full rant below.

The ongoing feud continues between Philly rapper Meek Mill and Toronto rapper Drake. The feud began when Meek called out Drake for not writing his own lyrics, these initial shots fired were a response to Drake not retweeting Meeks new album on Twitter. Other possible reasons are surfacing for why Meek would attack the Toronto rap God including a personal plug to build up hype for the release of his new album and a build up of bitterness because Drake used to date his now fiance Nicki Minaj. For the full backstory check out "Meek Mill Plugs New Album Disses Drake".

A day after Meeks allegations, Drake responded with "Charged Up". A track which Meek responded to with "baby lotion soft"

Meek remained silent for days following the track and retaliated with a 15 second clip of him screaming into a mic.

Drake responded back again dropping yet another Meek diss track titled "Back To Back" with a photo of Joe Carter's 1993 World Series winning home-run versus the Philadelphia Phillies (Meeks hometown) to cap off back to back baseball championships. Drake throws a mean punch at Meek in this one:

You love her, then you gotta give the world to her
Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?
I know that you gotta be a thug for her
This ain't what she meant when she told you to open up more
Yeah, trigger fingers turn to twitter fingers
You gettin' bodied by a singin' nigga

Meek Mills just so happened to be in Toronto the night Drake dropped "Back to Back". Meek was in Toronto on Nicki Minaj's world tour and came out on stage 90 minutes late to a slew of boos. Meek was apparently late due to custom issues at the border.

"Back to Back" brings forth the aggression and hits some soft spots on the Philadelphia rapper which may have Meek running back to Philly with his tail between his legs.;

Cruising through the Wayhome Festival you'll find endless people strolling through grass fields, stages at every horizon, and a smorgasbord of music artists appealing to fans ranging from Kendrick Lamar to the Rural Alberta Advantage to Odesza to Modest Mouse. With four rocking stages, the menu of talent will serve any music lovers appetite.

While cruising by the WayBold stage on Saturday evening on route to catch Modest Mouse at the main stage we couldn't help but stop to take in rapper G-Eazy. The excitement to see the Issaquah, WA indie rock band was put on hold as this James Dean looking rapper captured the audience with his presence, flow and energy. G-Eazy stole the show at the Wayhome Festival in Oro Medonte.

G-Eazy takes an interesting approach to show business as he has his hands on as much of the show as he does the business. He was featured in Forbes in November, 2014 where he spoke of using his business principles to direct his music career.

G-Eazy espouses a fake-it-till-you-make-it attitude. He acts as if he is already a star, including staging a big production. “We used to approach a small 400 person show like an arena show, as if I was a star and I was coming out on stage in front of screaming people and that I was to be larger than life,” he said. “It’s our approach to treat each show like an arena show. We over-invest in production to make the stage look bigger, turning the show into an experience and not just somebody standing around with a microphone rapping.” - Forbes

G-Eazy's track 'Running' featuring Gabriel Garzón-Montano can be heard during "Rap By Night" airing nightly from 9pm-midnight.

The month of July is about to have another Sun-Day added to its calendar as emcee, actor and respected philanthropist, Sun, becomes only the fifth local rap artist to receive his own day by mayoral proclamation, joining Trae Tha Truth, who was first, Bun B , Slim Thug and most recently, Lil Keke as the other holders of that honor. Henceforth, July 28th will be know as Sun-Day in Houston and it couldn’t go to a more deserving guy.
A native of Alief, in Southwest Houston, Sun has been using his platform as an artist to give back to his ‘District F’ community via his own Soleil Foundation, through numerous back-to-school drives, health and wellness fairs, sports and fitness camps, shoe drives and holiday food and toy drives to benefit the underserved youth and families of that district.
A close associate of 50 Cent and the G-Unit family, Sun, a relative new-comer to rap music, has already had the benefit of working with a who’s who list of multi-platinum producers such as Havoc of Mobb Deep, Richie Branson and Apex to name a few. He has also toured internationally with some of music’s biggest names such as Eminem, 50 Cent, G-Unit, Mobb Deep and Trey Songz. His associations with the aforementioned, as well as of those of a host of household names in sports, enables Sun to find new and even bigger ways of bringing much needed help to his community. ~ @Sun_Days
Sun recently topped the Jamsterdam Top 10 with his track 'Drop Bandz' featuring Mr.1204. The top 10 can be heard daily at 10am and midnight.



Since releasing their debut self-titled EP in 2011, indie alternative hip hop band Zoo Legacy has had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as Ms. Lauryn Hill, Classified, Shad, Kardinal Offishal, Ubiquitous Synergy Seekers and the Airplane Boys. The Ottawa-based four piece has also performed at some of Canada’s leading festivals including Bluesfest, NXNE, JUNOfest,Canadian Music Week and among others.

Formed in Ottawa in 2010, Zoo Legacy’s sound can be categorized as alternative hip hop. The bands music blurs the lines between hip-hop, indie rock, R&B, and pop. Consisting of rapper Nick Pouponneau and multi-instrumentalists Mark Milloy, Dominic and Samuel Goss, the bands music appeals to rock fans and hip-hop fans alike. While not easy to pinpoint, Zoo Legacy’s style falls somewhere in the category currently occupied by artists such as Gorillaz, M.I.A., and KiD CuDi.

Zoo Legacy recorded its third project titled 'Departures' in Brooklyn with Juno Award winning producer Gus Van Go (The Stills, Hollerado). The debut track from the album titled 'She'll Never Fall in Love' reached #1 on the Jamsterdam Radio Top 10 on July 24th. 2015. Check out the video and download the track.
