It only took us 825 days (or from September 7, 2015) to break 40,000 views on Indie Voice Blog, which we accomplished on December 10, 2017. That’s an average of nearly 50 views a day, with our biggest day being July 11, 2017, when we had 1,100 views. During that time we have posted 322 articles, including 88 “Get it or Forget It” reviews covering 304 EPs and CDs, as well as numerous artist profiles, Fringe and local theatre reviews and coverage of the semi-annual LA Music Critic Awards, with special features on the 2016 winners. Not too shabby, right?

The LA Music Critic Awards have issued a final call for submissions for the second half of 2017. If your single, video, EP or CD was released between July 1 and December 31, 2017, then it is eligible for submission. Nominations will be announced during the second week of January, with the winners announced by the end of the month. Several of the winners will be selected to perform at the annual LA Music Critic Award Showcase in June 2018.
We love introducing new artists to you. Check out the new single, “Wishing Upon a Star,” from Delsinki, which features the amazing Brooke Taylor. We think you’ll love these vocals and Americana soundtrack.
Australian artist Zvchvrivh blasts onto the scene with a chill track for his new single, “Think of Me.” We love the groove – let us know what you think.
Our final single today comes from one of our favorite performers, based in Nashville. Heather Bonds is an amazing solo artist as well as the lead single for The Daybreaks. We think her new single may be one of her best yet. Check out “Keep it Quiet.”
NEW MUSIC VIDEOS
First up today is the hot new video from Austin, Texas based FlecHaus. This band continues to amaze us with their harmonies and funky sound, especially on their latest tune, “Tell Me Something.” Let us know what you think.
Check out this dreamy video from Kramies, shot in the incredible Shankill Castle in Ireland earlier this year. The lyrics from the single, “I Wish I Missed You,” are haunting and perfectly fit the incredible cinematography of the video. Let us know what you think.
Our final video for today is from The Zephyr Bones for their single, “Telephone.” We think it’s the perfect way to close out this edition of Monday Mashup. See you soon.
