Artist You Should Know: Henry Hall

If Henry Hall isn’t on your radar, he will be after you read this interview. We’ve been obsessing over his captivating vocal style for quite some time, and this week he dropped his much-anticipated “Introduction EP.” Read on to get to know Henry, learn about what it was like to collaborate with Ellis on his new EP, and more.

Henry, what up? Stoked to chat with you! Let’s start with a little introduction to Henry Hall.
Hey! Not much! Stoked to chat with you too! I had a turkey sandwich for lunch!

Your music has been featured in a few of Casey Neistat’s short films, which have garnered millions on millions of views. How did you get involved with the filmmaker and social media guru?
A good friend of mine and co-director of my new music video for my song “Frenemy (Just Be Nice)”, Jack Coyne, has been working for Casey for years and showed him some of my music way back. I went to Casey’s studio and we hit it off– we high-fived and everything. Pretty soon thereafter, I wrote the song “Talk” for his video “A Love Story 8 Years in the Making” and from then on, we’ve just been collaborating as much as possible! Casey is the best.

Why You’ll Get the Feels for The Pheels

You know that feeling you get when you’re listening to a song and it instantly takes you back to certain time in your life? Our guest blogger Olivia, the powerhouse behind Wolvereen and who is spending the summer discovering new music with us, can’t get enough of The Pheels for that reason. Read on to find out why you should be listening to this Atlanta-based duo.

Some of my fonder memories of high school are of my sophomore summer, driving around in my friend’s Jeep and listening to Frank Ocean’s “Channel Orange” on constant repeat. We were invincible, and we were drunk on the warm air and the carefree feeling of summer. When I clicked on The Pheels’ “French Toast” I was immediately back in that Jeep. However, I can’t limit their sound to the comparison of one artist. These guys create a well-crafted mix of Atlanta pop and R&B; they have that homemade, original feel with a big label sound. If you’re a fan of dreamy, R&B-meets-urban tracks with smooth, heartfelt lyrics, you’ll definitely catch the feels for The Pheels.

Get to know what could be “your new favorite band”, Midnight Mob, with the folks over at Music Junkie Press. They sat down with the band and talked about influences, new releases, upcoming shows, and more!

Spin covered Green Gerry’s “Mean Miracle” release calling it the calling it one of the most “locomotive” anti-summer songs you’ll come across.

Henry Hall revealed his bad boy side in his new “Frenemy” video. See him toting skateboards and baseball bats and robbing a bodega while dawning a velour suit. Contrary to the trouble making video, Rolling Stone calls this song a “dreamy pop ballad,” which is appropriate considering the use of his upper range as well as a deep, smooth track.

Air Traffic Controller

Shortly after gathering over 1 million Spotify plays for their uplifting single “On The Wire,” Air Traffic Controller debuted the official video on BULLETT Media.
