SAM VARGA’S NEW SINGLE “FALL DOWN” GOES VIRAL ON TIKTOK

Nashville, TN (September 23, 2021) – Alternative/Rock artist Sam Varga just released his new single “Fall Down” to all streaming platforms. You can listen HERE!

“Fall Down” is the first original single from Sam Varga that displays his shift back to his Rock/Emo roots. It was written by Sam, singer/songwriter/girlfriend Kalie Shorr and William Stone. The song was produced by Dan Swank (All Time Low) in Nashville TN.

With classic Emo lyrics like this happy feels so lonely, I wish someone had told me, that I’d fall down, Sam’s song, sung to the tune of “Ring Around the Rosie,” has quickly become a favorite amongst fans.

“Fall Down” began going viral on TikTok on September 18th and has since received over 900K views on the platform. His previously released cover of Olivia Rodrigo‘s “Good 4 You” currently has over 650K streams on Spotify.

“The first music I found for myself and really identified with was the Emo scene of the early 2000s,” Sam explains. “It was saying something completely different than what was on the radio and a lot more dynamic. That influence is always apparent in my music and I tried to shake a lot of that when I first moved to Nashville because my goal at the time was to get cuts. After a year or two of that I got bored and started releasing my own music. It only took awhile to find my way right back. Fall Down is a song about pushing it too far, putting bandaids on bullet holes, and waking up in the middle of all of it.”

About Sam Varga:
With just three short years in Nashville, Sam has already established himself as serious writer and dynamic performer. Coming up in the fast-paced punk scenes of his high school days and the Blues of Austin TX, there is an edge and energy that makes his songs stand out in Music City. He has quickly come up through the writing ranks and can frequently be seen playing staples in town such as Whiskey Jam, Buscall, and The Listening Room. His first year in Nashville saw the release of his debut single “Sex & Whiskey” and the release of his EP “Light Me Up”.

Nashville, TN (September 17, 2021) – Country-Pop singer/songwriter Allison Asarch recently released her new single “Neon Nobody” (co-written with Andrea Renfree and Ericca Latza). You can listen to the song HERE!

With inspiring lyrics like you got one-in-a-million shot in the dark at anybody knowing who you are, so keep the faith and sing your songs, wait your turn, no matter how long, “Neon Nobody” reminds us to keep following our dreams.

Neon Nobody is about my journey coming to Nashville,” Allison explains. “I was once a small town somebody and now I’m a neon nobody. BUT, just because I’m a neon nobody doesn’t mean I won’t become a somebody! It takes time in this town. With perseverance, I know this dream will become a full reality.”

About Allison Asarch:
Growing up in Houston, Texas, Allison Asarch discovered her love for music at a young age. As a child, she would perform at her grandparents’ annual Christmas talent show, but it wasn’t until she reached 4th grade that she knew she wanted to make a career out of it. “My music teacher, Ms. Teagarden, had everyone singing and smiling…including the boys! I loved the joy music brought to me and everyone else.”

Raised on powerhouse vocalists like Tina TurnerShania Twain and Freddie Mercury, Allison began cultivating her own unique sound while attending Otterbein University’s School of Music in Westerville, Ohio. It was there that she began teaching herself how to play the guitar, while also taking piano lessons during her freshman and sophomore years. She was also a member of the school’s choir, training in classical opera and traveling to Ireland and Germany to perform.

In 2018, Allison moved to Nashville, Tennessee to start chasing her dreams. When the Coronavirus pandemic hit in early 2020, she seized the opportunity to start recording and releasing her own music. Heavily influenced by Taylor Swift, Allison combines country, pop and jazz elements in her songs. In September 2020, she released her first single called Taylor Made. That same month, she appeared on the Netflix Original show “Sing On!” where she took first place and won over $42,000. She followed up with her second single, The One, in November and released Sippin’ on Somethin’ in February of 2021. Her most recent singles, Summer Style, Cotton Dress, and Midnight Daydream are now available on all streaming platforms.

An advocate for female empowerment, Allison is building her team around talented women. “I know there are wonderfully accomplished women who play instruments, sing backup vocals, produce and create. I want to help shine a light on those women and organizations the best I can!”

In her spare time, Allison enjoys fostering dogs, attending Nashville Predators hockey games and sampling craft beers at local breweries.

IAN JAMES RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BY MY SIDE”

Nashville, TN (August 20, 2021) – Christian Pop singer/songwriter Ian James recently released his new single “By My Side.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With comforting lyrics like gotta lotta hopes and gotta lotta plans, gotta lotta dreams, but take my hand and I will go wherever you wanna go, “By My Side” is sure to resonate with many listeners. You can watch the official music video HERE!

By My Side was born out of a very difficult season in life, when I had just lost a job and was searching for direction,” Ian explains. “I reminisced on the serious trials I had faced in life: my birth deformity, my mother’s cancer diagnosis one week before I left for college, and my own spiral into an unhealthy party-focused lifestyle. Through all of this, I had felt a presence that encouraged me and stayed by my side, and kept me going. Whether one attributes this to God or just a presence, it was clear I was helped through these times by something greater than myself. So I wrote this song as a declaration to this realization, and as an anthem for those who truly need inspiration through extremely difficult times.”

Ian also says, “I have always been someone who has had friendships with people from all different backgrounds, regardless of faith or beliefs. I’ve always connected to all types of people and have never been sheltered into just one type of community. Sharing what I believe through my music doesn’t have to be divisive or alienate others. So my whole goal with my songs is to be that bridge between people, and I hope my lyrics speak and relate to people in all walks of life.”

About Ian James:
Ian James is a Christian Pop artist from Charleston, South Carolina, who has been featured in CCM Mag and New Release Today – the two biggest Christian music publications. Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Ian began playing drums and guitar at the age of 8, performing in various school bands and ensembles. Ian decided to pursue a solo career in early 2019, realizing he wanted to share his passion for outreach and his faith through his own personal stories. He released his debut single “I Look Up” in 2019, followed by his most popular song to date, “Will for Me”, in which Ian declares his desire to follow God’s leading for his life, no matter where it takes him.

In his music and heart for others, Ian hopes to bring light to those struggling and in need of kindness and true compassion. His writing is inspired by raw, deeply personal experiences that have fully shaped who he is, and his songs undeniably reflect this message.
