Brandon Ray’s Latest Single Sizzles with All the Potential of a Future #1 Hit

Brandon Ray is easily one of the most talented young artists making music today, and his latest single has the potential to be HUGE! From the very beginning of “Small Talkin,’” Ray sets his listeners up for the seductive, first person confession to follow, and then pulls us in with sultry vocals that instantly make us melt before he’s even finished the first verse. With lyrics so steamy they would probably make Marvin Gaye blush, the singer’s newest release takes the intimacy of songs like Billy Currington’s “Must Be Doin’ Something Right” and Dierks Bentley’s “Come a Little Closer,”...

Artist Spotlight: Kalie Shorr

Kalie Shorr is a splash of red in an all grey painting.

Dear Santa from Manda

Dear Santa, If I’m remembering correctly, we are now on year three where I send you a letter hoping by some miracle that you actually come through for me, only to be let down again. Well, here’s hoping third time’s a charm, huh? I’m pretty sure we’ve already established that I don’t believe in “asking Santa” for things like good health and peace on Earth and all that other heavy stuff some people tend to unload on ya this time of year.
