Needle in the Haystack Follow Up: S-Preme

S-Preme is not only a great musician, but also just a great guy to talk to! He’s so passionate and has a ton of talent to offer the music industry. In our Tweet & A this week, we asked S-Preme what made his music worth listening to. He responded by saying that his music has something for everyone. We couldn’t agree more. Take a listen to his song “Popular” if you already haven’t. The song is the thought of being famous, the reality of not and the mindset that you always matter, says S-Preme. Below is a short video that we put together featuring our conversation with the man himself! Check it out and let us know what you think.

Needle in the Haystack Follow Up: The Orkids

It’s been a lot of fun working with the talented band The Orkids this week. We had a great Tweet & A with the band where their number of followers actually grew by 10% before our very eyes.  Seems like the short period of time during which the interview took place made an impact, and that was very cool to see! In addition to the Tweet & A, the band gave away a free track out on Monday that is worth checking out. To wrap the week up, we’ve put together a short video featuring the interview that we had with The Orkids yesterday along with some added material from the band. Let us know what you think!
