The Heck Is: Lewis Capaldi?

Ah, Lewis Capaldi. I don’t even remember when I first encountered him.  Or rather, his body of work. Before going for his press conference, I recalled his name as an up-and-coming UK artist with a current smash hit. I dismissed him as an Ed Sheeran type.

If you are into UK pop music, a few artists might have popped into your mind. View this post on Instagram R KID @glastofest A post shared by Lewis Calamari…

Huawei Freebuds 3 Review: A passive ANC competitor

As always with Apple, they seem to somehow make new technology become the norm. They did it with the iPhone, and they’ve recently done it with the Airpods; making true wireless earbuds part of people’s lifestyles. Since then, many companies have taken a crack at making their own wireless earbuds including Huawei, whose latest product is the Freebuds 3. The Freebuds 3 aren’t any regular wireless earbuds though, it is an active noise cancellation capable one that comes with an open fit design. That means that it does not come with ear tips and sits on your ear instead of…

Soundbites with Yeo: Telling it like it is

Malaysian-Australian artist Yeo is a bit of a mixed bag. A singer (although he still doesn’t really consider himself one), a songwriter, a producer, a DJ, a music director and an absolute legend on the bass and keytar… the list goes on. Yet amongst this wealth of identities, the artist still manages to find his own method to the madness; creating a unique, ever-evolving brand of sound that intersperses bleak pictures of reality with glimmers of the purest hope you’ll find. Coupled with his Asian diasporic background and his love for travel, there’s just something about his songwriting that pulls…

Greyson Chance On His Rebranding, The Story Behind “Afterlife”, and the US Election

His third and latest single, “Back on the Wall”, has already garnered more than half a million views on YouTube. But more importantly, Greyson Chance is also back on his quest to slay the pop music industry after a hiatus of five long years. Greyson rose to prominence when talkshow host Ellen Degeneres discovered his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on YouTube. Since then, he has been blessed with a bundle of musical opportunities – including a record deal under Ellen herself. Many may still see him as a baby-faced talent who graced the world with his mellifluous, pre-pubescent voice…
