FEATURED ARTIST: SAMANTHA SIDLEY
Samantha Sidley Covers Disney Classic: Jazz vocalist Samantha Sidley shared her haunting, sensual version of “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from the classic Disney animated feature, Cinderella, which she calls her favorite. “I arranged the song so it would feel trippy and retro – like an atomic aged dream,” she explains. “It’s one of my favorite songs to sing.” This single is a follow-up to her 2019 queer jazz album Interior Person, featuring the lesbian anthem “I Like Girls.”

DC Artist Ikey Wants to “Go Outside” by The Alchemist
Ikey is a Nigerian-American artist that current lives in the Washington DC area. Being raised in the city of Largos, Nigeria, he often draws influence for his songs in the underlying pain caused by poverty, and political unrest in the third world. Although he reminds us that at times things fall apart, his music is influenced by a special brand of hope, happiness and optimism felt by real people struggling to make it across each continent. Drawing distinct inspiration from the music of the African Diaspora, D.C.’s Go-Go Sound, and artists like Notorious B.I.G, Fela Kuti and Wyclef jean Ikey’s innovative records combine the streets of Lagos Nigeria, and Washington DC to bring them straight to your block.
His newest track is called, “Go Outside” and it is a melodic rap record that uses some beautiful piano chords matched with hard hitting 808’s. The thing that stands out the most to us on this track is the lyricism as his wordplay draws the listener in and will get caught in the listeners head very easily. The song describes a beautiful 70 degree, cool breeze Sunday afternoon, walking the beachfront with your significant other, brews in hands, getting lost in each other’s presence
Important Trash is the solo music project of singer-songwriter Mary Parker. A Los Angeles native and lifelong amateur classical pianist, Parker has spent decades building a career as a music editor for film and television. Her debut, self-titled album features ethereal vocals atop electronic instrumentations, with flourishes of sultry organs and bursts of frenetic synths. Parker, who was determined to keep her project female driven, spent months seeking out talented women to mix and master her tracks and create her album art. Standout songs include “Fancy You,” a dream-like ballad of unrequited love, and “Slummin’,” a tragic love song about someone who’s no good—featuring a bass performance from Duran Duran’s John Taylor.
