It’s been nearly two years since our friends in Shiffley dropped new tunes but they’re back with a new track “RI₵H KIDS!” The new song brings their signature synth pop sweetness but if you dig deeper, it grapples with feelings of social inadequacy and despair built into a broken system.
We hopped on a virtual hangout to chat about the new song, their quarantine activities, and what’s on the horizon for the band in the coming year. Watch our interview with singer/songwriter Alex Gaines and drummer Bryan Contreras below!

You can usually tell how far an artist is going to make it based on the crowd’s reaction. After seeing Kid Quill on his first headlining tour, we know he’s on his way to the top. The crowd was hype from the minute he walked on the stage until the last encore, enthusiastically singing, jumping, and dancing along the entire show. Kid Quill’s gone from “the opener,” on tour with artists like Bryce Vine, to headlining his own “Meet Me at Sunset” Tour across the US.
The tour was in support of his latest album, “Sunset Diner,” which draws inspiration from music of the 70s and 80s combined with his modern hip-hop sound.
We caught up with Kid Quill before the last night of tour at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Watch our interview and learn about his favorite part of touring, what’s coming next, and his go-to diner meal.
MAX and Quinn XCII’s hit “Love Me Less” has been part of the soundtrack of the Summer of 2019. The track has been climbing the charts with its relatable lyrics and catchy melody. We love each of their unique sounds, and having them together made for one of our favorite collabs this year.
The duo teamed up to perform together at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the US Open in NYC, with an energetic performance on court that had the whole stadium rocking. Can we just say that we’d love to see these two go on tour together?
Watch our interview with MAX and Quinn XCII and find out who they’d fangirl over, what’s coming up next, and why you should listen to “Love Me Less.”

We started calling Austin Mahone the one man boyband years ago, and we still stand by it. The man has a harmonious voice and the smooth dance moves to match. He just released a new single, “Dancing With Nobody,” and has been working on an album set to drop next year.
Austin performed the new single for the first time at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in NYC, showing off his dance skills and his beautiful voice. It wasn’t Austin’s first time at AAKD – he was featured back in 2013, too!
We chatted with Austin before the show, and even got him to sing and dance a little. Watch our interview and hear about his ultimate fangirl moment!

Ava Max is on her way to being the next big pop star. She has a knack for crafting catchy, infectious songs you just can’t get out of your head in the best way. Her single “Sweet But Psycho” put her on the map and every track she’s released just makes you want to dance along!
Ava kicked off a busy weekend with a performance at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day, where she sang “So Am I” on court. Next up she’ll be performing at the MTV VMA Pre-show!
We chatted with Ava at AAKD about her new single “Torn,” who she’d love to collab with, and what fans can look forward to coming soon! Watch our interview below and find out.

JAGMAC were named one of Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing artists in 2018 and they are certainly living up to the name! The group of six siblings, who got their name from their first initials, can sing, dance, choreograph, and play instruments. They also each have black belts in Tae Kwon Do! You may have caught them on tour with In Real Life. They recently dropped a fun Summer track called “Like A Band,” and are gearing up for some headlining shows later this year.
JAGMAC performed at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day this weekend in NYC on both the Festival Stage on the grounds and inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. They got the day off to a fun start with their high energy performance and definitely brought life to the party! We love the throwback to Aqua’s hit 90s song “Barbie Girl” in “Like A Band.”
We chatted with JAGMAC before the show and talked music, Power Rangers, fans, and more. Watch our interview with Jared, Angelique, Gabriel, Manjo, Alyssa, and CJ below!
Get ready because JD McCrary is about to take over the music world. The triple threat (he can sing, dance, and act!) dropped his debut EP, “Shine,” earlier this year and was the voice of Young Simba in the new “The Lion King” movie. He’s also been a part of tracks with Childish Gambino and Jon Bellion, and he stars on “The Paynes” on The Oprah Network.
Did we mention JD is only 12-years-old? He was the youngest artist ever signed to Disney’s Hollywood Records. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
JD was tapped to co-host Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day (make that a quadruple threat?) in NYC alongside Radio Disney’s Morgan Tompkins and Meg Donnelly.
We spoke with JD before AAKD about what’s coming next, who else he’d love to collaborate with, and the time he met Beyonce. Watch our interview below!
We Were Sharks are heating things up ahead of their hotly anticipated album Lost Touch dropping on February 23rd through Victory Records. We can’t get enough of the Cananadian group’s refreshingly bright and equally melencholy sound on the new album. We got the chance to sit down with singer Randy Frobel during their headlining tour in Brooklyn, NY and he’s just as charming as you’d expect! We Were Sharks brought their high energy set to Gold Sounds Bar, showing NYC how Canada parties.
Watch our interview below and see what Randy’s favorite song on Lost Touch is, his must-haves on tour, and who caught him totally fangirling in Ottowa recently.

Jack & Jack first met back in kindergarten, instantly bonding over the fact that they were wearing the same shirt and had the same name! They eventually started creating music together and have come to be known for their perfect blend of pop and rap. Jack Gilinsky brings the hooks while Jack Johnson brings the verses. They just dropped a brand new EP, “Gone,” which brings their music to a new level.
We spoke up with Jack & Jack before their performance at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in NYC. Who would they pick as their doubles partner? What would they pick as their walk-on song? Watch our interview below and find out.

Why Don’t We have taken the music world by storm since forming as a group less than one year ago. Their latest EP, “Why Don’t We Just,” shot straight to #1 on the iTunes Pop Chart, beating Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars. Why Don’t We also recently wrapped up their very first headlining tour this Summer – and the tour was sold out! Their current single, “Something Different,” is climbing up the charts across the country.
We caught up with Why Don’t We before their performance at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in NYC. Of all the artists performing at AAKD, Why Don’t We had by far the biggest fan reaction. The boys absolutely rocked Arthur Ashe Stadium and had the entire crowd screaming and singing along to every word!
