Artist Spotlight: Alex Kaf


Alex Kaf is a singer-songwriter who has been working tirelessly on her new single, “Alien Love Song,” which she wrote based on her all-too-relatable experience as a young girl chasing after an idea of a person. Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Jim Cravero, the song preaches the importance of finding yourself and moving on through a dreamy pop melody that identifies not only the sadness of an ending, but the hope of a new beginning. The song will be available on all platforms Friday, January 15th.

Alex was the national anthem singer for the professional women’s ice hockey team, The Metropolitan Riveters, in the 2019-2020 season. With a background in musical theatre, Alex began writing music at the age of fourteen. Alex’s indie pop music takes inspiration from artists such as Taylor Swift, Maggie Rogers, and Tori Kelly, but maybe a little more straight out of your teenage diary. Recorded out of quarantine-induced inspiration, Alex seized the opportunity to work on a piece that was so close to her heart as opposed to letting isolation get the best of her. 


She received recognition for her theatre performances from the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Greater Philadelphia Cappie Awards, and the Philadelphia Independence Awards. She attends Syracuse University studying Musical Theatre and Music Industry. 


With a strong work ethic and a deep love for writing and singing, Alex Kaf is excited to share her new single with the world.

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’

Single Review: 'So Deep' - Brianna Knight

 by Emily Jackson New York-based singer-songwriter Brianna Knight’s latest track, 'So Deep', is a declaration of love without any soppiness; it’s pure soul. With a voice like honey that oozes power and control at the mastery level of some of her biggest influences (Lauryn Hill and H.E.R.), Brianna’s vocals soar.  ‘So Deep’ is an intoxicating listen and in just under three minutes, Knight sells you a whole story about fun, lust-filled young love. The heavy funk bass line evokes nostalgia, making you want to get up and dance, whilst keeping things contemporary by being an upbeat tale of passion rather than your bog-standard ballad. Brianna’s sound blends 90’s R’n’B with a modern take on Soul; hearing just the first few notes is enough to wish that she could narrate your wildest nights and worst heartaches.   As Brianna sings “you’re addictive to me” - you stop and realise that you may just be addicted to her. Just before you think the single couldn’t get better, the first verse c
