Melbourne neo-soul artist Meg Mac has released this gorgeous one-take official video for her new hit single “Roll Up Your Sleeves” off her forthcoming debut EP MEGMAC slated for a September 12 release.
The Sydney native grew up listening to pop soul pioneers of Detroit and Memphis finding herself inspired by big voices laced with attitude and conviction. Meg Mac has cultivated and embodied these elements herself with an evident modern swagger. “Roll Up Your Sleeves” is a song about just that: rolling up your sleeves and having the confidence to make a change. Meg Mac’s confidence is apparent and empowering and translates both through her voice and on screen

Mike Turner is an LA based music supervisor, editor and music producer for film, television, advertising and trailers. Mike also currently serves as Creative Director at IP asset management firm CH Music Investments LLC.
As a music supervisor, Mike found his niche in Los Angeles and lately works on most projects independently. Currently Mike oversees all production of music for The World Poker Tour on Fox Sports and “Wheels & Reels” on The World Fishing Network.
Listed in Music Connection Magazine as “one of the best unsigned bands to see live” three years in a row (2011-2013), The Big Bang are an up and coming soul shakin’, groove makin, alt soul band from Los Angeles CA. With a sound combination of Amy Winehouse + Sam and Dave + Fitz and the Tantrums, The Big Bang has hit the scene with their unique and alternative take on southern California soul.
Finishing their last year of education at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, the band became friends and began developing their diverse image and unique sound. They can now be heard on numerous local and internet radio stations (including Kiss FM in NYC and Utica), in the air on Delta Airlines, and on TV (VH1′s Mob Wives, Single Ladies, Love and Hip Hop, MTV’s Jersey Shore, Teen Wolf, and Snooki and Jwoww, TNT’s Boston’s Finest, Lifetimes Dance Moms, the CW morning news, and many more).
They’ve also had the opportunity to get groovy at Bonnaroo, Coachella, SXSW, Make Music Pasadena, Kiis FM’s Wango Tango music festival and a private event held by the Recording Academy. Constantly hitting the road with a high energy interactive show, the band has opened for a hand full of talented artists including Nikka Costa, Lights, Vintage Trouble, The Arkells, Honey Honey, and the Day Lights. They continue to successfully build a strong buzz and create a continuously growing and dedicated fan base with each show they funk up.
The Echo and the Sound
THE ECHO AND THE SOUND is a two piece, guitar and drums band, based in Los Angeles, CA. formed in late 2012; BRIAN RICH (guitar/vocals) and DOUGLAS JEWELL (drums) made it very clear early on… “YOU CANT’T KILL US UNLESS WE QUIT.” With punk rock overtones, blues-folk undertones, country-esque and gothic cantina styled, their sound has been described “as if Bob Dylan and Sam Shepard got into a fist fight while drinking in a desert cantina.”
Fire the Animal
Now in Venice Beach, Joslin has truly narrowed in on his “California Soul” sound. On any given day you can find him serenading drifters along the Venice boardwalk and see people of all shapes and sizes dancing along to his mellow rhythm. Playing songs from his latest release, Come Out West, a blend of Stevie Wonder’s Motown groove, dripping with Brian Wilson-esque harmonic arrangements, he has encapsulated the feel good, California sunshine music he always dreamed of making. To top it all off, Joslin produced, wrote, mixed and mastered the entire album. He even designed the album artwork.
Somehow in the midst of all this he still finds time for one more dream. “I always wanted to be a Beach Boy: live by the beach on the west coast, play music, create art and surf…I’m doing all that and more now. Anything from here is just icing on the cake.” From one dream to the next, Joslin’s art explores the idea of life as an adventure, love, and the pursuit of meaningful relationships in hopes that it’ll inspire you to experience life the same way.

Hunnypot is proud to present the 1st single from Louis Prima Jr and The Witnesses BLOW album out June 10th, 2014. Check the official lyric video for “Go Lets Go,” there are Easter Eggs a plenty.
“BLOW is as eclectic and unique as each member of my powerhouse band. With our collective talents and diverse musical tastes, we wind up with a raucous roller coaster ride of tail-shakin’, foot-stampin’, horn-driven smiles. We didn’t set out to simply write music we thought the fans wanted to hear. We wanted to challenge ourselves musically and also challenge the listener. If music does not come honestly from your soul, it will ultimately be short lived,”
- Louis Prima Jr.
