Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden on a small crop of land called Sollerön - known as the Island of the Sun - Winona Oak is every bit as enchanting as her origin story. With a childhood spent encountering more animals than people, she grew up a trained horse acrobat and pursued creative expression however she could, writing poetry and songs from a young age. After moving to Stockholm to pursue her passion for music, she found herself signed as an artist to Neon Gold / Atlantic Records and published by Warner-Chappell, with her biggest writing credit and feature to date on the Chainsmokers' new single "Hope". "He Don't Love Me" marked the beginning of Winona Oak's contribution to today's music and culture under her own pseudonym, with the track becoming a runaway success and amassing over 50 million streams. Winona Oak’s second EP "SHE" released in fall 2020, accompanied by performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in December 2020, wrapping her sophomore EP release with her television debut. Recent collaborators include Andrew Wells, Kito, Alan Walker, Jonas Jeberg, Rollo, and Cam Montgomery.
The Newcastle, England-born songstress notably built a discography of blockbuster anthems, including the JLo/Rauw Alejandro single “Cambia El Paso”, Rita Ora, Zedd, Fifth Harmony, Illenium, Anitta as well as the platinum collaboration “Scared To Be Lonely” by Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa, which has been streamed over one billion times.
Rosie Darling has certainly turned pain into beauty on her debut EP Coping (via Nettwerk). With the release of each new track, Darling earned press support from FLAUNT, EARMILK, Under The Radar, PopMatters, Wonderland, and more, while garnering 60+ YouTube features and an ever loyal fanbase. With her first single and artist statement - "Coping" - Rosie amassed 50 million+ combined streams, charting on 14 different Spotify Viral 50 charts, landing Top 20 on the Global Viral Chart. A talented team of songwriters, producers, and engineers reached out from the onset, wanting to collaborate, including Justin Gammella (FINNEAS, Ashe), producer Andy Seltzer (Chelsea Cutler, Shallou, Joan), mixer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Florence, and the Machine), and Joe Laporta (Halsey, JP Saxe, Gracie Abrams). Coping is a time capsule, capturing the messier side of love and friendship, from heartbreak and loneliness to joyous revelry. It's an intimate window into Rosie's life, encased in a vulnerable kind of indie-pop. In the loneliness of her 20s in isolation and amidst an increasingly digital world, Golden Age (Rosie’s second EP) captures big, pent-up feelings from the past two years and pairs them with her signature flowing melodies and gut-wrenching lyrics.
With a seismic and show stopping voice, larger-than-life presence, and fearless fashion sense, Benicio Bryant laces his enigmatic pop R&B with a much deeper message. By unapologetically being himself, the 17-year-old Seattle-born singer, songwriter, and producer inspires everyone else to do the same. He embodies self-expression in both the dynamic and diverse inflection of his voice and his eye-popping aesthetic. Before he could speak, he sang to his parents. Eventually, he would perform “concerts” in the living room. In between local talent shows, he ventured out to Seattle farmers markets and busked for passersby. Obsessed with Lady Gaga, he witnessed her famous Born This Way Tour at just six-years-old with his dad. Picking up his guitar, he posted early videos to YouTube, catching the attention of The Voice Kids Germany and placing second on the show. In the wake of his success across the pond, America’s Got Talent invited him to audition, and he reached the finals. He landed a deal with Arista Records during 2020. He dropped his debut single “Ghosted” [feat. 12AM], tallying 1.1 million Spotify streams. He co-produced and played guitar on the follow-up “Sorry,” reeling in 263K Spotify streams. He maintained his momentum with “Serious,” “Feels Like,” and “Who Hurt You,” defining a bold, bombastic, and buoyant signature style of his own. After tallying millions of streams, gaining now 10,000 dedicated spotify followers, and earning looks from E!, Seattle Times, and more, he amplifies this message loud and clear on a series of 2022 singles and more new music to come this year.
