As an Army veteran, A.T. Branch has experienced life from a perspective different from most of us. As a child of a musical family, the Detroit native paints from a sonic palette that encompasses formative influences like gospel, R&B, and jazz; intense shades of rock; the polish of modern pop; and a hushed, yet powerful vocal tone that has drawn comparisons to Britney Spears.
Everything we just mentioned shows up on A.T.’s debut single, “Ready 4 War,” which releases to the world on Friday, September 20.Learn About A.T.

It’s a busy week here at UMC. There’s a new episode of The Quinn Spinn out. We have tons of submissions to catch up on from vacation (and even before). Oh, and it’s Americanafest in Nashville this week, and we’re going out to get us some of that, starting tonight.
When will we sleep? We don’t know!Listen to UMC20
Word to the wise, before you listen to Talia Stewart’s new album, Confessional: get ready to feel strong emotions. Between the topics explored via Stewart’s jazzy, sultry alto and the album’s hard-hitting and robust soundscapes, you’ll come out having experienced a no-holds-barred exploration of human expression.Listen to ‘Confessional’

It’s only been a few weeks since we’ve heard something new from TIOGA. As it turns out, the Philly new wave revivalists had one more trick up their sleeves in the summer of 2019.Hear the Single
The quest for love is a recurring theme in Moonroof’s music. Some of the band’s recent efforts reflect this search, and the tricks played on our minds by the fear of loneliness.
Their newest single, for its bright soundscape, is another one for the hopeless romantic.Hear ‘Trojans’
Northern California alt-rock trio Of The Wild is preparing to release their Banshee & Hope EP on October 25.
