The birds are chirping and the music is playing.
It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine with exclusives of your next favorite tracks…
Who: Olivia Thai is a viral sensation and a Jill of all trades. She speaks Mandarin, beat boxes, plays the violin, invents vegan recipes and oh yeah, she started college at age 13. If there’s anything Olivia can’t do we haven’t found it yet.
What: The first look at her lyric video for “Down To Earth Cool Chick”
Why: We’re grooving with Olivia’s chill chill vibes. “DTECC” sounds like the trip to the beach that we desperately need.

“I am so excited for the lyric video of ‘Down to Earth Cool Chick’ aka ‘DTECC’. ‘DTECC’ started as an acoustic jam alone in my studio apartment in LA, which you can watch in the earliest version of this song on my YouTube channel. The one thing I feared most about ‘DTECC’ was that people wouldn’t get it. I learned a good lesson when I released ‘DTECC’—never underestimate people. My fans fully embraced the song so much that it became a fan-fave. I’m so grateful that my fans not only get it, but ‘DTECC’ actually became one of my most highly requested songs.” – Olivia Thai
Who: Anna Shoemaker has all the markings of a stellar singer/songwriter. Her career might be young but after being discovered for covers of hip hop songs, her star is on the rise.
What: The cinematic and super honest video for “What Am I Doing To Me?”
Why: Anna’s new song builds into an anthemic chorus with a clap along beat, and the video shows real life #struggles we can all relate to. Consider us addicted.

“I had just graduated college and was really having a hard time getting my shit together, I was writing a lot and constantly working on my music so I kind of put everything else in my life on hold (including sleep). When I look back on it now, I feel like it was such a period of growth for me as an artist and overall person because I was really laser focusing on songwriting and using it to discover things about myself, rather than just dissecting romantic relationships.” – Anna Shoemaker via Atwood Magazine
