New Singles & Our First International Signing!


I'm a little behind so this blog is chock full of news and updates. First let's start with new releases. About a week ago we launched the debut single from Emily K. The song is called "This Little City" and it's a legit smash. More people emailed me about this track than any of our other releases. You should got to Emily's page and listen now! Look out for a FREE download soon!


There's another new release I've been talking about for a month and I can't tell you how excited our team is to release this song. The track is called "Frequency" and it features both JOR-G & Erica Ashley. I know somebody here is going to kill me but for some reason it reminds me of 30 Seconds to Mars…if 30 Seconds to Mars was a rapper from Miami and a 14 year old pop star. The song comes out 12/12/13 so check back then. Please support PopRiot and our artists by sharing the song on your social networks!


The biggest news of the week is that we have signed our VERY FIRST international artist. Introducing Jamie "YoungBlood" Hardman from Blackpool, England. Please help us welcome YoungBlood by visiting his page, following him on Twitter, and subscribing on YouTube. His first single is scheduled for release the week of January 24th and we expect VERY big things for him. Stay tuned...



28 Days Later

We are currently in the middle of a 28 day studio binge. Maybe 28 Days Later was actually about the music industry because I will definitely be a zombie at the end of this.

It all started with "This Little City" by Emily K. We huddled up for final writing sessions, tracked it out, got her into the booth, and out came 3:58 of magic. Beautiful song. Look for it this Thursday, 12/05/13 when it's released for streaming on her Facebook pageOn deck right now is "Frequency". It's a bit of a Rap/Pop hybrid and features both Jor-G and Erica Ashley. It promises to be a smash so check back right before Christmas for the big reveal.

We've talked a lot about the singles we're dropping this month but one of the most anticipated releases on our books comes just after the new year. Playground Etiquette releases its EPIC new album "La Marionnette" on January 18. Produced by PopRiot's own Athena Hiotis and mixed by the amazing Drew Mazurek (Linkin Park, Souls At Zero). If you're local, get your tickets for the CD RELEASE SHOW on the 18th and get a free copy of the CD at the event!

Signing off but can't wait to share some super secret news about Erica Ashely. All I can say now is that she's in a bit of a sticky situation. See ya!



Emily K and This Little City!

We made the long trek into Northern Maryland this weekend for a photo shoot with our newest artist Emily K. We met in her hometown (Bel Air, MD) and I was quite surprised. It's hard to find a place that reminds me of the Cape this far south. My favorite part of the trip was a tiny basement record store packed to the roof with old LPs...very cool. It seems fitting that the first single from her new EP is called "This Little City". Can't wait until you here this these songs. Be sure to add her on Facebook!
