The Ugly Club write groovy pop music that’s sure to stick in your head for days. One listen of “The Lonely” and you’ll remember the catchy melody with a light tone on the synths and bass that feels just right. Smooth vocals float in and out of falsetto throughout the chorus of the track while the drum hits are defined but not overbearing on the song as a whole.
“The Lonely” will be available iTunes and Amazon as well as streaming on Spotify next Tuesday, March 24th. For now, listen to the single below!

Connecticut’s own Alec Chambers recently released his debut single “Whole Again” and announced an EP coming in early 2015. The EP was produced by Robbie Gauriglia (Oh Honey) and features songs co-written by Lee Groves (Black Eyed Peas.) At 19, Alec is being hailed as a “teen virtuoso,” having understood chord charts well before he could drive. He taught himself how to play guitar by learning to play his favorite songs by ear.
Each song on the EP was co-written by Alec, who has written dozens of songs, many with platinum selling songwriter-producer Sara Nagourney. Alec is a talented multi-instrumentalist with a guitar driven pop sound. His debut single is one of those tracks you just want to put on repeat, and we can’t wait to hear more!
Listen to his single “Whole Again” below and be sure to pickup a copy on iTunes now!

Z100’s Jingle Ball is by far one of the biggest concerts of the year – and one of the hardest to score tickets to. If you didn’t manage to snag a pair, you still have the chance to see some big names perform at the Z100 All Access Lounge before the concert – for free! The party will take place from 12pm to 6pm at Hammerstein Ballroom, on December 12th. The All Access Lounge features performances throughout the day, interactive games, and a chance to win Jingle Ball tickets or meet and greets with some of the artists.
Since it’s a free event, we’re sure it will fill up fast so be sure to get there early! The first 200 people in line with a Coca Cola product (specifically a 16 or 20 oz) will be able to cut the line and enter first. Sounds like a fair trade, especially since you’ll need the caffeine! Check out the lineup and all the info below.
