GABRIEL RIOS – GOLD (Alt/Indie – Belgium)

Gabriel Ríos was born in Puerto Rico but relocated to Belgium at a young age to make music and study painting. After fifteen years and three albums he decided to move to New York in 2011 for what would become a 3-year songwriting adventure in the city. For one year between October 2013-2014, he decided to share one new song a month with his fans via his website and the first song “Gold” was an instant hit, which gave the project a good start in Europe.

A dance remix version of the same song, made independently by Australian producer Thomas Jack, went viral, opening new doors and unexpectedly introducing Gabriel Ríos to a new audience that might not have discovered his music otherwise.

Ríos’s fourth studio album, This Marauder’s Midnight, was released in late 2014 in Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg and May 2015 in the rest of the world. It is available in physical stores and online.

MATT CORBY – MONDAY (Indie/Folk – Australia)

Matt Corby

Australian folk singer/songwriter Matt Corby is back after two long years of silence. His new single “Monday” was shared with fans via SoundCloud and premiered on Triple J on October 1st. Though it sounds rich and full-bodied, it is exclusively made of sounds produced by Corby’s body and voice. No guitars, not even a kick drum.

This new song is the first taste of Corby’s forthcoming debut album, which was almost fully written and recorded in the coastal town of Berry and will be dropping early next year. The young musician explains that “Monday” is “a song about being able to appreciate where you are, being mindful, and thinking that maybe you don’t need much to depend on or define yourself by, you just need to enjoy the fact that we all get to share this single lifetime together.”

Corby will be heading on his first tour in two years in November (Australia, UK and US). Check out the dates and buy tickets on his official site or Facebook. Buy his music on

VIDEO : MADJO – CHOOSE THE HEART (Alt/Folk – France)

Madjo (by Emma Picq)

Four years after her debut album Trapdoor, French indie folk artist Madjo is back with new single “Choose the Heart”. Influenced by artists such as Beck, Fiona Apple or Antony & The Johnsons, Madjo is a classically-trained violinist but the instrument that stands out in her compositions is her voice. Reminiscent of the great female voices in jazz music, Madjo’s warm and honest voice delivers heartfelt lyrics that always hit home.

“Choose the Heart” is taken off Madjo’s brand new sophomore album Invisible World, self-released on March 2nd. The young singer songwriter spent three years on the road playing, sharpening, purifying her music to the bone and then she decided to retire to her childhood home in the French Alps to write her album. This album seems to come directly out of the mountains and conjurs up forgotten sounds and echoes that resonate and vibrate deep down within.
