Before recently signing to Epic Records, Gilbere Forte split time between Los Angeles and Philadelphia, Gilbere Forté preparing his latest body of work, PRAY. Led by the haunting Fiona Apple “Every Single Night”-sampled song and visual “Pray”. Soon after, news of Gilbere’s free agent status began to circulate throughout the music industry, and record labels were in hot pursuit.  The week following impressive showcases at SXSW, Gilbere announced via his Twitter that he signed a new deal with Epic Records. He would go on to release the aptly titled PRAY mixtape on May 15th, 2013, and has begun work on his as-yet-untitled major label debut album.

Fallen from the frigid streets of Chicago, Nylo is a newly emerging artist thats causing a little bit of a stir. Through soulfully sparse 808’s, fragile falsetto confessions, and a bit of a dirty mouth, a new genre-bending soundscape arises. Driven by the polarizing influences of rap and classical music, Nylo lands in a new space that has been described as The Weeknd meets Aaliyah. After the release of her four song EP, Memories Speak she is back in the studio finishing an exciting full length record, to finish the story she began. Let your shoulders relax, slow down… and listen to Memories Speak, as you remember the sounds of honesty.
