Around in My Head by Salem Blue
Artist Statement: Around in My Head is about heading down a dark path in life, and feeling so overwhelmed and swept up by it that you no longer feel like yourself. It’s a little bit of a journey and, in the end, a moment of reflection where you realize you’ve completely changed into someone you don’t want to be.

Artist Statement: Oklahoma Americana husband/wife duo, The Imaginaries, Shane Henry (guitar, vocals), and Maggie McClure (keys, piano, vocals), release their latest single “Revival.”
The video shows the duo on the run after quitting their outlaw lifestyle to live up to their true calling of spreading their newfound message of love, faith, perseverance, and positivity through their music. “’Revival’ is a spiritual song about finding hope and salvation,” says Maggie and Shane. “Our faith has an impact on our everyday lives and in our songwriting. ‘Revival’ is complete with biblical references from ‘not storing up treasures on earth,’ the warnings of ‘the love of money,’ and the mission of ‘spreading the good news.’ We all need a revival now more than ever!”
American Songwriter says, “Presented with a brief but instantly adventurous and gripping introduction for the first two minutes of the video, once the music of ‘Revival’ kicks in, the full strength of The Imaginaries’ musical skill…from delta blues to harmonizing gospel, to a touch of outlaw country colliding with Baptist lyrical metaphors. Moment to moment, the energy and performance personality put forth by McClure and Henry also flash moments reflecting Lindi Ortega’s vintage, southern-focused sound and aesthetic, Miranda Lambert’s unyielding vocal sass, Dan Tyminski’s unapologetically religious-minded messaging, and James Bay’s slick but sensitive crooning.”

Artist Statement: Get It Right is the second single from Ada native Justin Logan. The track is a contrast to the first single, Dust, illustrating both the songwriting range of the Okie music maker and the wide breadth of influence that informs his music. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, Logan performed and recorded every instrument on the track, save a couple of rich and colorful synth parts added by Tulsa’s Andrew Bair, who also mixed the track. The track is available on all major platforms, as well as online at www.justinlogan.us/music
Praying Hands by Jabee
Now Available: “This World is So Fragile and Cruel Im Glad I Got You.”
