Artist To Watch: Rayvon Owen

Rayvon Owen is pop’s newest It Boy for 2018 and rightfully so! His upbeat introspective tracks are a fresh take on life and love with his smooth vocals adding the true shimmer on everything he does.

Rayvon’s latest track, “Gold,” is about that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you first start to fall in love with someone. When asked about the track and his future EP,  Rayvon says “What better feeling do you have? Falling in love is such a beautiful thing. I love singing about love in general — the good and the bad — I write sad songs too, which will be on the future project too. You’ll kind of see the whole gamut. But in that moment, we were feeling good and thankful.”

Not only is Rayvon a pop superstar in the making, he’s also extremely active within the LGBTQ+ community, partnering with the Trevor Project, Human Rights Campaign, and the POINT Foundation.  “I was so afraid, being from the South and being black and coming from a more conservative area and growing up in an environment that is not very conducive to being gay or even questioning your sexuality,” Rayvon adds.  When he came out and shared the news with his fans, he said they were influential in helping in him realize he made the right decision, “I would get a message from someone who would say this helped me come out to my parents, or saved me from taking my life. And it’s just like- ok, this is worth it.”

You’ll be hearing a lot from Rayvon in the coming months as he puts the finishing touches on his forthcoming project which he says will put a lot of himself on display and let the listeners get to know him as a person and artist.  “People go through a lot every day and I think you can get really down when you’re only hearing negative things about what people are saying about you, or what people are doing to you. I think that the best thing you can do is to be yourself and I hope that people find that message through my music,” he says.

Cody Simpson Releases “Surfboard” Music Video!

One of our songs of the summer is guaranteed to be the catchy single, “Surfboard” by Cody Simpson. We love the retro intro that melts into the r&b chorus. The video is out just in time for summer and we can’t be more excited! Watch the official video below!

It’s a shame that Cody Simpson got sent home this week on DWTS! He was just too good for the competition.   We were hoping for a final dance-off between former tour mates James Maslow & Cody Simpson!

We can’t wait to see Cody this summer at the BLI Summer Jam at Jones Beach!  Tickets are on sale now!
