American Idol Season 14 winner Nick Fradiani


grew up in suburban Connecticut, the oldest
child of a teacher mom and a musician dad.
With music always a part of the household, he
began playing guitar and singing at the age of
ten: a lot of talent nights in grammar school,
a few ‘battle of the bands’ and joining his dad
onstage. After earning American Idol’s top hon-
ors, Nick spent the summer touring the country
with AMERICAN IDOL LIVE! and has begun
work on his solo debut album for Big Machine
Records. His single “Beautiful Life” is currently
being introduced to radio, receiving support
from the Idol community and beyond.

So what does a smile sound like?


Well, given its sun-soaked flavor, upbeat
swing, and uncontainable energy, The
Royal Concept’s second EP, Smile, could
very well answer that.

The Swedish quartet—David Larson


[vocals], Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus
Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums]—
first achieved worldwide attention with
their viral hit “D-D-Dance.” In 2013, the
track hit #2 on Hype Machine, while its
follow-ups “Gimme Twice” and ”World
on Fire” reached #3 and #1 respectively.
LAVA signed the group and released their
debut The Royal EP as the band criss-
crossed the globe to play live shows in
packed venues. Simultaneously, their hit
single, “On Our Way” received over 25

Overall, the EP serves one special purpose for The Royal Concept. As David

Hailing from South Africa, Connell Cruise is a singer-songwriter


whose infectious instrumental riffs and accessible lyrics highlight
the pop sensibility of his music. Although he makes catchy pop
music, they are memorable on a deeper—more personal level—as
they sonically reflect the sounds of South Africa which are so es-
sential to who Connell is. A self-proclaimed romantic, Connell views
the world in a refreshing light: take the good with the bad, find
the beauty in everything, and enjoy the ride. He stole the hearts of
music fans when his debut album of 2013 spun off a trio of home-
grown #1 radio hits that included “Not Just Friends,” “99%” and
“I Oughta You,” plus the surprise #1 cover of Avicii’s “Wake Me
Up.” The album generated three SAMA (South African Music Award)
nominations in 2014, including Best Adult Contemporary Album,
Record of the Year for “Not Just Friends,” and Male Artist of the
Year for Connell. His U.S. debut EP Into The Wild released July 31st,
2015 was co-written by James Shelley from American Authors & Ido
Zmishlany (“Life of the Party”, “Something Big” by Shawn Mendes).

South Carolina-born, Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Parson


James likes to call his music “conflicted pop gospel,” and one listen
to his single “Temple” and the description feels entirely apt. James’
song “Temple” came out of a moment he had while sitting in church.
“I thought, ‘No one here would like me if they knew who I was,’” he
says. “It’s kind of this, ‘see no evil, hear no evil’ thing. As long as you’re
quiet, everything is cool. ‘Temple’ is about sitting in a pew and bursting
at the seams wanting to yell, ‘I’m this way! I’m this person!’ I just want
people to open their eyes and wake up.”

For 13-Year-Old singer/songwriter Skylar Stecker, making


music is a way to channel her unstoppable energy while
showing off a jaw-dropping vocal range that’s well beyond
her years. The Middleton, Wisconsin native has a bright
and beat-driven brand of pop – including debut single
“Rooftop.” Whose video’s already racked up more than 5.5
million YouTube views. Skylar is now gearing up for the
release of a full-length, co-written debut This Is Me that
reveals her natural grasp of melody and dynamic vocal
presence. “When I write my own songs they feel more
authentic to me.
That way when I perform them, I can show my connection
to the song, and people will know that this is my message.”
