She by Sophia Massad

Artist Statement: The song will be Massad’s first release in 2020, in anticipation for her full-length album release which has been postponed due to COVID-19. “She” is a simple yet melodic song that reveals Massad’s own self-doubt and romantic fantasies. The song features Garrison Brown on horns, Tristan Todd on lead guitar, Raul Alfonso on bass, Ethan Neal on drums, and of course, Sophia Massad on rhythm guitar and vocals. With the delay of Massad’s album, there is plenty of excitement for the new release.

Massad is currently a vocal instructor at ACM@UCO and the owner of Oklahoma City Vocal Studios, all while pursuing her music career. She released her first album in 2014, then joined The So Help Me’s in 2017, and started this passion project with the mission to create and share her rawest music in 2018. Her style, inspired by the Alabama Shakes and Amy Winehouse, is both formidable and poetically honest. Sophia Massad and her band (Tristan Todd, Michael Fabri, and Levi Sherman) plan on releasing their full album in late 2020.

You Didn’t Mind by About Wallace

Artist Statement: Songs should tell the truth, right? Even if the truth isn’t pretty. 

“You Didn’t Mind” isn’t about a pretty story, but we think it’s honest, and that’s what we’re going for. We hope people find something they can relate to in the song, maybe even something beautiful.

73120 (The Good) by L.T.Z.

Artist Statement: This is a song near & dear to my heart. It is about the summer of 2005. It’s about hanging out with my big brother. It’s about hanging out on the NorthSide of OKC which I call home. Chips produced a perfect background to the storytelling I did. He (Chips) is a true champion in making my stories come to life.

Trapeze Artist by Casii Stephan

Artist Statement: Somewhere between A Christmas Carol and Alice in Wonderland, this story resides. Let us take you on a journey of hope as we navigate the ups and downs of life in a slightly fantastical version of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
