Ripe's new album Bright Blues has an anthemic feel. It is a collection of 12 songs full of sleek grooves and bold melodies that the Alternative-Pop quartet put together to help ride out tough times.
The members of Ripe have never felt more assured about the band or their music. Collectively and personally, Ripe has weathered a mountain of adversity over the past few years, and from those struggles has arisen their best art yet. Bright Blues, Ripe's sophomore album, is enjoying big excitement at radio, with the new single "Settling" hitting top 15 at AAA and top 25 at ALT with over 16K+ radio spins garnering 15+million impressions and being featured as Alt Nation's critical cut artist.
Coyote Island, the musical vision of Mike O’Hehir, explores a fresh blend of folk, reggae and pop with world music influences creating a playful global sound around stories embracing the human journey. His first single “Here Before” co-produced with trip-hop duo Dazy Park, has garnered over 2 million streams across platforms globally. The follow up EP “Origin Stories” attracted Ineffable Records (Shwayze, Surfer Girl, Anthony B). Coyote Island’s highly anticipated debut full-length album "Holy Illusion" is due out in June 2023 with singles featuring Grammy-nominated artists Matisyahu and Blvk H3ro, as well as guest collabs with Surfer Girl, Mihali & Ghanaian singer & songwriter Abitemi dropping monthly in the lead up.
