Last night’s Local Show was as hot as the weather! Varcy kept us moving with the ”See Me Hya”, and Booker T grad (and current Berklee College of Music student) DAMOYEE sent in her new groove “Don’t Know.” Fort Worth band The March Divide sent in the alternative jam “Drug That I Can’t Quit” and we heard the contemplative “Peanut Butter Whiskey Dream” from SURILLO out of Richardson.
Check out the full playlist after the highlights and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.
Plano artist Yu has many talents: in addition to being a musician, he also teaches hip-hop dance classes and has a business degree from UT Dallas. KXT writer Preston Jones caught up with Yu when he dropped his debut album Home, and now we have the disco-tinged dance track ‘Pretty People” to enjoy!
Lucky for us the Bahamas-born artist is now making her way in Dallas. This reggae tune, produced by the talented team of Jordache Grant and Jah Born, will get you moving!
Grove just dropped a video for the indie tune “I’ve Been Here Before”, that was directed by Madeleine Leigh and we should all watch it!
