Discover New Music with Meagan: Ruth B.

19th March 2018 | Music

Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. And then she writes it up and pops it online. Here is that write up for this week.

Best known for her 6 second Vines, Ruth B. made herself a household name quickly when her single ‘Lost Boy’ – which references the Disney classic, Peter Pan – hit the top of the charts and took the music streaming world by storm.

From Canada, Ruth sticks to her roots by relating her songs to personal experiences growing up. Her debut album, ‘Safe Haven’ came out in May of 2017 and gives off a near-jazz and slow vibe rather than being more upbeat.

I think that’s what I like about her, she puts her own spin on popular music by making it more personal than something you’d listen to and sing along to at the top of your lungs.

Almost like a teenage version of Adele minus the ballads that make you want to cry.

Ruth B. has major potential of being a role model to many and reminds me of that friend you want to go to for advice, something strongly shown in all of her songs – make sure to check her out everywhere, including… maybe… soon… V2.

Listen to Meagan's show each week, live exclusively on W!ZARD Radio Station on Sundays from 6pm (UK) or on W!ZARD Repeats, here.

Interview with Ryan Kinder

17th March 2018 | Music

Alabama native Ryan Kinder is embracing change.

When his Country Radio chart-topping single ‘Close’ make shockwaves around Nashville after its release, he decided to make change – after all, real ‘artists’ don't sit still. Out with the old, in with the new – and now comes rock-inspired ‘Leap of Faith’.

Closer to his country music roots, ‘Leap of Faith’ is a passionate love ballad which has a hint of rock and roll mixed with his Southern roots to make song which is unignorable when played.

Before his performance at Country To Country Festival in London, James Gilmore interviewed Ryan Kinder about his latest single, coming up by performing cover songs in bars and country music’s rising popularity in the UK.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Interview with Luca Schreiner

15th March 2018 | Music

Luca Schreiner has been waiting for his breakthrough – and he isn’t patient.

Gaining a reputation from his hot streak of remixes – including official remixes for Louis Tomlinson, James Arthur, Alessia Cara, Matoma and more, Schreiner has played festivals alongside the likes of Don Diablo, Felix Jaehn, Oliver Heldens and more.

Signed to Ultra Records; his debut single ‘Missing (feat. Kimberly Anne)’ has gained over 10M streams on Spotify, with 2017 record ‘Out of My Mind (feat. Loé)’ on over 2M streams.

Ahead of the release of his next single, Luca Schreiner took over The W!ZARD Sessions on W!ZARD Radio Station - and we sat down for an exclusive conversation with the rising DJ/producer to find out more about him.

WR: It’s our pleasure to be speaking with Luca Schreiner! Luca, how are you?

LS: Thanks for having me, I’m super well thank you!

WR: How did you first get interested in producing electronic music?

LS: My Dad has a music industry background, working with a lot of electronic music labels so I grew up with that particular music. I remember watching videos of Tiesto performing in front of thousands of people at huge festivals. I wanted to experience this on my own so I bought some standard gear and just started from scratch basically, learning everything through YouTube tutorials actually.

WR: You’ve worked with the likes of OMI, Shaggy, Roger Sanchez and more – who would you say has been your favourite artist to collaborate with?

LS: I wouldn’t say that I have a particular favorite, but working on one of my most recent ones for Louis Tomlinson was super fun. It fell together really fast, since I knew from the beginning what I wanted to do…
