Rob Eberle Presents His Sophomore EP Release!


Prolific young Singer/Songwriter/Producer Rob Eberle is proud to present his sophomore ep release, i canít say goodbye, now available on Spotify and all the major music services.

Listening to the lyrics on his debut ep, WHEREíS MY MIND?, there is no doubt that High School Rob Eberleís life had been the living proof of teenage heartbreak.

Now at the ROC NATION School, his sophomore release, i canít say goodbye takes a different approach. This time, Eberle focuses on writing songs that were inspired by other peopleís heartbreak & hardships, telling the story through their eyes.

The five song collection is broken up into five different emotions. The feeling of anger shown through the production & lyricism of wanting more, the feeling of fear described through far, despair through reckless, angst through hope u feel ok and finally, vulnerability through thereís not enough time?

Rob writes all of his own music, lyrics and works with various producers to create unique moments within his songs. Each one of Eberleís songs are stories and moments into his life and others around him.

Influences from an eclectic group of artists such as FINNEAS & Billie Eilish all the way to Madison Beer, Olivia Rodrigo and Panic! At the Disco have helped to create Eberleís genre bending darker-alternative to traditional Pop Rock.

Rob Eberle is a young, versatile singer and songwriter and producer from Long Island, NY. Robís ability to capture snapshots of his life and otherís experiences is a special gift that separates him from lyricists within his genre.

Tay Toe Presents New Album Habits and Setbacks


Salt Lake City based and Los Angeles bred hip hop artist TAY TOE presents the new single Meet Again, from his album Habits and Setbacks - available now on all the major music services.

Inspired by versatile, intelligent rappers like Mac Miller, hip hop upstart Tay Toe is one to watch. Like many young Americans, Tay Toe spent his teenage years living with anxiety and depression. He began writing music as therapy, but actually performing it live was a big step for him.

However, once in his element, itís plain to see Tay Toe was born for the stage. Thereís something special about connecting with a random person because of a song you created.

Starting out as just a fifteen year old kid with a laptop, a microphone, and a dream, Tay Toe has been making a deep impact on the hip hop landscape for the past decade with clever lyrics and block rockin beats. With Habits and Setbacks itís clear heís ready to break through to mainstream notoriety.

I only write when Iím inspired because I want my music to be meaningful.

You can catch Tay Toe live all around Salt Lake City, Utah and the surrounding states with plans for a west coast excursion in 2023.

Jeff Lake Now Brings Us The Christmas Chronicles!


Jeff Lake released his debut EP, Field of Grass on August 20, 2021. Since then he has amassed over 200k streams on Spotify, and over 275k views on YouTube with his bluegrass cover of Janis Ianís Better Times Will Come leading the way with 120k views. His new album, Seven Days is scheduled for release early next year.

So what do you do in the meantime? If you are Jeff Lake, what else? You write a new Christmas show! The Christmas Chronicles, featuring Jeff Lake & Cellophane Flowers, will be debuting with back to back performances at The Belfry Music Theater in Delavan, WI on Wednesday, 11/30, and Thursday, 12/1, with additional shows to follow on Sunday, 12/4, at The Gracie Theatre in Bangor, ME, Saturday, 12/10 at The Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, PA, and Saturday, 12/17 at the Kings Point Theatre in Delray, FL.

The Christmas Chronicles reveals the true meaning of Christmas in a series of visually-stunning, intertwined, seasonal vignettes. Tales of love and magic around the globe and through the ages are told through the words of Martin Luther King, Jr, Emily Dickinson, Chief Seattle, Henry V, interpretive dance, and the music of Peter Lynch Tchaikovsky, Ludwig van Beethoven, Lennon/ McCartney, George Harrison, as well as original music by Jeff Lake.

The first release from the show soundtrack, Happy Xmas (War is Over) is now available on Spotify and all the major services.

The release is the first by Jeff Lake & Cellophane Flowers since the 2020 album release Penny Lane which is available on CD and digital outlets worldwide. Lake does not stray far from the Lennon/Ono classic; but, his voice does soar on the higher vocal lines sung by Yoko Ono on the choruses of the original version. This plus a simple score for guitar and string trio make this holiday classic worthy of a listen.

The idea for the The Christmas Chronicles was conceived in 2019 while Lake was singing in church choir during Christmas Eve mass. Pastor Sallie began speaking of the Christmas Day Truce in 1914 during World War I, says Lake. Iím a huge history buff and Beatles fan so I immediately connected the dots to John & Yokoís song. In that moment, The Christmas Chronicles were born.

Narrator Scout Ford (x-TSO) tells the story: British and German troops emerged from their trenches exchanging hand shakes and small souvenirs and in that one magical moment, the war was over!
