Introduucing...Emilie Esther, Winner Of 'X Factor Denmark'!

By now, it's a fairly established fact that The X Factor series, more than most TV talent show competitions, really does supply massively talented performers and groups: One Direction (RIP, too soon), Cher Lloyd, Fifth Harmony, Leona Lewis, Little Mix, Samantha Jade...all big pop stars from all…


Introduucing...Honor!

Meet Honor, an elusive chanteuse with an even more elusive USB drive. See, Honor has a rather intriguing discovery story that doesn't involve being spotted performing at a local bar or racking up followers on YouTube. Well...not exactly, anyway. As legend would have it, YouTuber Luke Cutforth…


Introduucing...Anna Naklab!

Meet Anna Naklab. Or, well, meet her voice, anyway. She doesn't have any promotional photos just yet. In fact, the vocalist has been pretty enshrouded in mystery ever since her career took off last year with a dance floor-friendly cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Games" with Parra for Cuva, which…


Introduucing...CAPPA!

Meet CAPPA, born Carla Cappa. Having already released a debut LP (You Never Got Me) nearly 6 years ago, as well as a few spare singles like 2013's "My Heart Is Beating Again", the Nashville-based songstress has since ditched the last name and kicked off a brand new project as CAPPA. (A good ol'…


Introduucing...Max Elto!

Meet Alexander Ryberg & Tom Liljegren, the Swedish duo known as Max Elto. You might have already heard them once on David Guetta's "Just One Last Time," credited as Taped Rai. They've since changed their name to Max Elto — a LYLAS to Fifth Harmony situation, basically. Together, they make very…


Introduucing...Phoebe Ryan!

Meet Phoebe Ryan, a name you'll likely want to know as soon as you hear that voice for the first time. It's an immediately captivating kind of voice — featherlight, bright and sort of child-like — bringing other ethereal pop crooners like Becky Jean Williams, Ellie Goulding and LIGHTS to mind.…


Introduucing...VÉRITÉ!

I haven't properly written about VÉRITÉ yet, although she's been included on at least a few MuuTunes playlists in past months. So, let's change that. The rising NYC-based singer-songstress makes punchy, propulsive pop armed with soaring hooks, stomping drums, atmospheric textures and rocky…


Introduucing...Years & Years!

Meet Years & Years, a British trio made up of singer Olly, Emre and Mikey. While I was over galavanting/having a much-needed mental escape in Swinging London Town these past two weeks (still severely jet-lagged), I caught the troupe playing a sold-out gig at Plan B. I hadn't heard a single song…


"Ex's & Oh's": Elle King Breaks Hearts With Her Blues Rock Anthem

Meet Elle King, the man eatin', shit talkin' spitfire of your dreams...or nightmares. (Boys: You've been warned.) Admittedly, the raspy blues rocker doesn't quite fit the usual MuuMuse mold (stilettos, wigs and an ongoing love affair with the dance floor tend to be the usual M.O.) but, hey: Good…


Stalking Gia, "War Paint" Video: MuuMuse Premiere

Stalking Gia might be new to the pop star game, but she's already had an extended run working behind the scenes in the industry. Having co-written music with DJ Vice (Ultra), Stevie Aiello (Thirty Seconds To Mars), Sean Foreman of 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship's Alex Suarez, the 20-year-old…


Introduucing...Becky Hill!

Becky Hill might only be making her formal solo debut this week, but she's actually been #KillingIt for well over a year now. You might already recognize the 20-year-old rising UK dance floor diva's distinctive vocals from Wilkinson's "Afterglow" from last year, Oliver Heldens' pulsating #1 smash…


Introduucing...Karen Harding!

Sure, Top 40 pop music is a bit, erm, lackluster at the moment. But across the pond, the dance scene continues to flourish. From Disclosure to Clean Bandit to Gorgon City to Route 94 to Sigma to Katy B, there's been absolutely no shortage of incredibly crafted, early '90's House and UK garage…
