In peak summer form, we had a week of immense talents and a first on the jrodconcerts podcast. Make sure to catch all the latest episodes on our ‘Podcasts’ Tab.
First, this week had a shining star in today’s pop scene. Jamie welcomed Canadian Actress and Singer CARYS to the show. With a plethora of hit singles under her name, CARYS has become one of the most buzzed-about artists on Spotify, Apple Music, and TikTok. It’s in this increasingly popular platform where she has the title of ‘Most Streamed Song in TikTok History’ with her 2019 smash hit ‘Princesses Don’t Cry’ with a staggering 850,000 streams! Her latest single ‘No More’ has also been at the top of many charts since it came out mere weeks ago. Aviva told Jamie about her unique career arc, and what is next for her.
Mid-week, we talked to the author of one of the best EP’s of the year, Teri Bracken and her Brontë Fall artistic moniker. Bracken is back with ‘Finishing School’ out everywhere on August 21st. A six-song masterpiece that touches on the constraints that the modern woman faces on subjects ranging from marriage to aging, Brontë Fall achieves a spectacular indie-pop/Americana blend that will leave the listener inspired and in ‘awe’ of Bracken’s vocals
Lastly we had a first on the jrodconcerts podcast: a music world premiere!
Maria Jane Smith & Victor Thell, better known as ‘Smith & Thell’ joined Jamie for a wonderful and in-depth conversation that touched on a variety of fascinating topics. From their early beginnings in Sweden to International success that caught fire with their single ‘Forgive Me Friend’ the story of Smith & Thell is as inspiring as it is breathtaking. The excitement was palpable when towards the end of the conversation, the duo premiered their new gorgeous single ‘Year of The Young’ for the show’s audience.
