Pass the Aux, is a series dedicated to amplifying new and upcoming musicians. We will get you up-to-date in discovering new music monthly to the point where your friends will ask you to “pass the aux!” The first Thursday of every month consists of some of the members of day four choosing musicians to highlight. We will give you our thoughts, our feelings and our theories on those musicians (strictly from a consumer standpoint).
*Have you got new music you want people to hear? Or perhaps you know someone that you think makes great music and just hasn’t had their big break? Make sure to follow us on IG and email links/information on new music to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be reviewing all submissions and deciding to focus on someone new each month.
blkcory’s pick: Julles
I’ll be completely transparent here, I usually pick artists that at least have 3 songs that I can send people to listen to but Julles was amazing live and it warranted a “pass the aux” segment. I watched her perform last week at a Frisson Radio and Takes a Village Music showcase in Kensington Market and was very impressed by her voice. It was her first time performing in front of an audience so she was naturally nervous but she did a great job! She mentioned not having a lot of music out so I thought I’d highlight her song in hopes that she keeps at it. There’s a space and audience for her style of R&B, so don’t give up.
Speed of Light
This is the one and only song that Julles has out on digital streaming platforms. It came out in March 2020. I’m mentioning all of this because off of this one song you can tell she’s really talented. Her voice fits the beat perfectly and if I’m being completely honest, this was the song that sold me on attending the show last weekend. It’s a beautiful song and I’d love for Julles to release more music for everyone to listen to!
Like the music? Be sure to follow her on socials @julles and stay up to date on any of her new stuff. Hope you enjoyed the read!
