So, this month we got back in the swing of things and came back in full force! We shared new tracks by MOKS featuring James Arthur, Nick Jonas, Ellie Goulding, Pentatonix and Justin Bieber.
We also brought some Mellow Tracks by Timeflies and Ryan Adams, threw some Thursdays back with City High, Mary Mary and Stacie Orrico and brought some wild-card tracks by Galantis and Cartel.
We even did another interview, with Life Of Dillon and hopefully we’ll be bringing you another one in October!
We hope you have enjoyed our song choices throughout September and you can find the Spotify and YouTube playlists below!
This month, we’re bringing you two new banners; ‘Happy Robot’ (at the top of this post!) and ‘Dopey Face’ – keep an eye out for them both at the top of our blog!

Gosh, I can’t believe these songs are over 13 years old now but I still enjoy them! Stacie Orrico released her first commercially successful, ‘Stuck’, in the UK back in 2003. It reached Number 9 in the UK charts and was quite different to the trends in music at the time with its pop rock edge married to her R&B style vocals. Interesting fact that the ‘boyfirend’ in her music video for the song, was played by her actor cousin, Trevor Wright.
I’ve also decided to include her second single from the album, Stacie Orrico, called ‘(There’s Gotta Be) More To Life’, purely because it’s such a belter! Again the blend of pop, rock and R&B is very prominent in this song and it scored Number 12 in the UK charts, but it was such a great, well-written pop song. It was also featured in the 2005 film, Robots with Robin Williams.
