With a talent for music that first made itself known at the age of three when he started playing the fiddle, Dante Mazzetti’s love for the craft has only gotten stronger as he’s gotten older. He honed his talents, which also include playing the guitar, by performing subway platforms and music clubs in New York and has studied both voice and studio engineering in order to make himself as well rounded an artist as he can.

After releasing two albums in 2002 and 2005 respectively, and taking a break to join the New York Fire Department, this past July saw the release of his EP Hotel Vol. 1, and its follow-up, Hotel Vol. 2 is out in November.

Before then however, Mazzetti is offering fans a taste of what to expect from the upcoming collection with the release of his new single “Ugly”, which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.

Keeping up with the themes and story-telling that made up Hotel Vol. 1, Hotel Vol. 2 and therefore new single “Ugly” both play their part in continuing the story of the troubled man finding and exploring a new life and experiencing new challenges; something that each and every one of us can relate to.

Asked about the creative process behind his new single, Mazzetti says:

“When writing “Ugly” I took inspiration for all sorts of music. You’ll hear Latin and German expressionist influences as well as American folk music influence.”

There are perhaps few artists around who have become a staple across several genres of music quite like Eileen Carey. The singer-songwriter from Ohio has shared the stage with acts including The Motels, Jefferson Starship and Don Mclean and has been a near permanent feature on the New Music Weekly charts over the past three years.

Carey saw out 2019 by being named the Hot AC/AC Breakthrough artist of the year and now, at the start of this new decade, as someone who is already well established for writing songs so many can relate to, Carey is kicking off 2020 with the release of her single “Finally”, the video for which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.

Asked about the meaning/story to the song and the creative process to the video, Carey says:

“Strong emotions sometimes cry out for strong language. These lyrics state in the plainest possible way what we feel but may be hesitant to say.

“Finally” is the most unusual music video I have ever released. It came out of my long relationship with producer-director Taner Tumkaya who collaborated with me on most of my recent music videos. Our last music video of “Meet Me Halfway” has had 70,000+ Youtube views. After 8 years in the U.S., he returned to Germany earlier this year, so we had to figure out a way to work. It was meant to be a lyric video initially, but in attempting to make the lyric video more interesting we happened on this stop-action animation. It turned out to be a great experience. It was a case of necessity being the mother of invention,” so to speak.
