Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with the rockstar juggernaut known as Hueston. Fresh from his career as one half of The Blancos, Cory Hueston is now officially in the next evolution of his personal revolution with his new album titled ‘Orbs’.
What we get with ‘Orbs’ is a confessional of the utmost personal levels. This is the heart on his sleeve. Six beautifully individualistic tracks, each with their own personality, listed in the order they were crafted. And what that creates is a diary of healing. Musically, the individuality continues with a massive set of solid hooks and inspiration found from within. In short, Hueston has created a future classic.
And that is what we discuss in this interview. I came away from this not only liking Cory, but admiring and respecting him. He gets it. Not just about the business, but about life. This is more of a conversation than an interview and there are life lessons to be had. You will walk away from this a better person.
About Abe Grossman
Today we have a special interview to share in the form of Abe Grossman. While today Abe is premiering his new video and single titled ‘Speed Of The Night’, we get the story behind both the music and the musician. And, in my opinion, that makes this all the more special.
Abe is a musician that has lived his music. Part autobiographical. Part therapeutic, each song is crafted from his heart, which is firmly on his sleeve. I learned from this interview as much as I loved it because it is from someone who has had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and shows what he learned from that and more, in the truest form an artist can convey.
About Aura Davis
Aura Davis has today released her new single and video titled ‘Die Alone’. A solid mix of electronica, power-beat, piano, and that original something that Aura has within her voice. Her voice is captivating on many levels. A combination o angelic and experience. Add to that a solid monster of a hook and you have her new single ‘Die Alone’. Beautifully crafted in its dark and somber overtone, the song is clearly a stylistic evolution for Aura. She will be one to watch…. and listen to.
Following up on the 2020 release of their second EP ‘All Hail To Your Queen’, Bristol-based atmospheric Alt-Pop quartet Ålesund return with ‘Lightning’, the first single is taken from their upcoming EP ‘A Thread In The Dark’, due for release in Spring 2021. The increasingly expansive, hauntingly cinematic track is due for release on February 26th, with the music video following soon after on March 5th.
After the untimely curtailing of their European Tour in Spring 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Ålesund traveled back to the UK feeling uncertain. Although things were going so well with a new offering and an extensive touring and festival schedule to get stuck into, the timing of the unplanned hiatus was less than ideal. Rather than take it to heart, the group’s vocalist and songwriter Alba Torriset retreated to her hometown of Hastings to try and reconnect with music in a positive way.
About Holy Wars
Holy Wars has released their new video for their rendition of Soft Cell’s classic ‘Tainted Love’. This time with the assistance of producer Nocturn. that initial listen lends to the fact that we do indeed live in darker times. This is a creatively dystopian and electronically original take on such a recognized track that it really, on some levels, becomes a Holy Wars track. This is an accomplishment because, let’s face it, re-recording ‘Tainted Love’ is a bold move because of the instant recognition. Holy Wars does it the right way with said dystopia and highlighting the strong points of themselves: Kats vocals, Nick’s musicianship, and Nocturn’s production. With that coming together you have a re-envisioning and not a simple remake.
About Charlie Nieland
Charlie Nieland is set to release his new album titled ‘Divisions’ tomorrow (March 5). Charlie is an artist with a long history in the music business, and ‘Divisions’ reflects that. The songwriting is as solid as it is diverse. And, what I mean by that, is that this is not a ‘filler’ album. This is an album with 13 tracks of differential personality. Something will be relatable to the listener regardless of what kind of listener that is.
There is also enough diversity to show that these tracks could be in any order you want them to be in. That is a good thing in the age of playlists. You can construct this album to your liking. And that is what is at the heart of Charlie Nieland’s mindset as an artist. That accessibility that those talented in music can possess. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder let the music be the soundtrack to the soul.
About Robi Mitch
Robi Mitch is set to release his new album titled ‘Future Perfect’ in April. Robi definitely has an originality about him in regards to his music. That sense of pop plus personality and even a sense of humor that cuts and defines while entertaining and enlightening.
With all of that, however, you get that hook. That monster hook lends a listenability to each song. This gives each track its own personality. Think of them as children and try to pick your favorite.
About Yuni Wah
Being young and new to the industry, Yuni Wa has definitely made his mark on the lo-fi community: he’s released around sixty projects so far, with more already in the works. In addition to discussing the concept behind his new single ‘Computer’, Yuni Wa also mentions his humble beginnings, musical inspirations, and social issues — as well as the real meaning behind his name.
In this exclusive interview, Yuni Wa also gives us a sense of what making music means to him and the message he aims to communicate through his one-of-a-kind sound.
Introducing Jammerzine’s Exclusives via Zoom! This week, Jammerzine premiered its new exclusive interview segment with its first guest, new-wave artist, and Aztec Record Label Executive LAU.

LAU speaks of her cultural and musical background, her inspirations for music and synth-pop, 80’s inspired music making a comeback. LAU also provides a sense of what it’s like being a musician and business owner during the COVID pandemic.

About Janna Jamison

In this interview, Janna details her history and background in music, as well as her pop-music influences and advice to other aspiring young musicians.
