Zoe.L Shares Insights on Her Musical Journey
After Zoe.L’s Caravan’s exceptional single was released, we caught up with an insightful interview with such a talented artist to explore her eidetic experience and what she had to say about her incredible musical journey so far. Read below to learn some interesting details about Zoe.L
What draws you to your preferred genre?
I Want Them All track is about exploring all genres. And that’s the way I feel. I don’t want to be put in a box. I want to be free to express myself outside of the confines of any one genre.
“Friend” is captivating from the start to finish with a combination of unique beats and catchy lyrics. What was the inspiration behind the single?
I saw my female friends being done dirty by boys and the rumors were making the rounds through the grapevine. I enjoy the narrative arc of storytelling and easily find a voice for that as a singer-songwriter. I like to write about what I know even though second-hand experience.
Which one of your songs has the most memorable story for you? Whether it’s the writing process, recording sessions or release of the song.
I would have to say I Want Them All. I have African, Jamaican, Cuban roots. My ancestors escaped Castro’s Cuba by immigrating to Jamaica. “Mi mamá pretty and she pray for mi” is a line that carries me through as I suffered a gruesome fourth-degree burn in quarantine and needed surgery to cut the burn out, then they pulled the skin on both sides of my leg and sewed it together. I was left with a six-inch scar running down my left knee. It broke me open. I never experienced that kind of pain in my life. That’s when I went to explore Reggae-pop as well as Dancehall after focusing on Pop-rap-hip hop and R&B.
Are you working independently or with any production house or recording label?
Phillip G. Henry was the only person in history to play a guitar solo on a worldwide Billboard number one song: Angel by Shaggy Featuring Rayvon. Philip is my director of music and I thank God for sending a multi-instrumentalist musician who has literally played on thousands of records, as an industry veteran. He guides me like a Godfather. My management team is an indie Canadian start-up Label, and I am the only artist signed to their roster so they on my career and invest in me while offering à la carte label services for independent artists.
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?
I dream of collaborating with SAWEETIE, Drake and Rihanna because I appreciate their artistic grind.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
I want my fans to know that no matter how young you may be, you can do whatever you set your mind to because creativity is not based on age it is God-given.
Thank you for speaking with us! For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?
Yes. Please help me to assemble my international Dance Delegation for I Want Them All. And I’m searching the world for a feature artist for the remix. Check out LibbyRecords.com.

Christian Rapper Allen W Brown Has a New Glorifying Crossover Masterpiece Dubbed “Over and Over” (Feat. Levi Mann).
Allen W Brown is a Christian rapper and musician, a husband and father, who has been dedicated to spreading the gospel of Christ through hip hop music. Having been saved from the street life of drugs, crime, and gang culture, he took it upon himself to inspire other people and their faith in God using his musical gifts. Drawing on his own journey of truly understanding and accepting grace, Brown hopes for every listener and worshipper to know the depths of God’s goodness towards them and for that reality to release them from shame and the empty rules of religion into a life full of freedom and joy.
Allen W Brown’s latest track, “Over and Over,” is a melodic Christian song with country music sensibilities praising Christ for his everlasting love, grace, and mercy. This is an affirmation of Christ’s never-ending hope in all of us, even when we fail him over and over again.
Featuring country music singer Levi Mann, the two of them go on to deliver a spectacular anthem with that crossover appeal. The chorus is uplifting, as is the heartwarming lyricism delivered meticulously in Brown’s signature melodic rap.
Allen W Brown has gone on to build one of the most impressive discographies in Christina rap, with a catalog spanning 4 albums, 2 EPs, and countless singles. His 2021 album, “In God I Trust,” was unanimously acclaimed, winning accolades such as “Alternative Album of the Year,” with the track, “Help My Unbelief” off of the album winning “Alternative Song of the Year” at the Rhythm of Gospel Music.
To him, this is just the beginning; he has barely scratched the surface as he seeks to release new music every month, which will hopefully lead to his 5th studio album in 2024.
To listen to “Over and Over”, follow the attached link and add this ear worming and uplifting track to your playlist.

Memphis Emcees Nero Glace and Hp Debo Link Up Again With a Heavy Banger Dubbed, “Sneaky Link”
Nero Glace represents the life of the streets, having grown up in it, flirting with danger a number of times but eventually following his musical passion consistently to avoid trouble and getting sucked into that life of street culture that is filled with crime and drugs. Growing up in the streets allowed Nero Glace to develop that high degree of literacy that characterizes his rhymes today. Under his charming looks is a fierce personality who always gives his A-game on any record he is put in.
Nero Glace and Hp Debo’s, (another Memphis emcee) fierce verses that they laid on “Yeen Neva Freestyle” earned them up-and-coming notice among the Tennessee rap scene. The two of them exude such an indestructible chemistry, and it is always a pleasure to hear from them again on a joint collaboration like this latest masterpiece dubbed, “Sneaky Link.”
“Sneaky Link” is Nero Glace’s first release of 2023 and hopefully the first of many to come this year. Having had enough of the anti-men crusade tracks and anthems, Nero Glace and Hp Debo decided to get into the studio and make a deserved anthem for the boy child.
This track is all about the comfort level in dating and sex life where you are beyond manipulation and just being in a position to call the shots—not in an abusive or toxic level but in a way that means you have it all under control and it’s working positively.
I love that fiery chorus that Glace drops here that takes up residence in a listener’s brain for the rest of the day. Debo comes through with some thought-provoking, memorable bars over the bouncing beats before Glace takes over and drives the message home with his masterful flows delivered in first-class lyrical fashion.
“Sneaky Link” is a proper street anthem and one that gets you fired up and feeling the vibe in your own unique ways. The beats are epic and capable of crashing your car windows.
“Sneaky Link” is the ultimate cruise beat for the summer and a must-have record. Follow the attached link and save this banger to your playlist.

Emerging Boy Band No Lonely Hearts, Under the Wing of KDS Platinum and Johnny Wright Partnership, Are Set to Release Their New Single “Special Treatment” on April
No Lonely Hearts are the next group of heartthrobs to help revive the boy band concept. The fact that the famed KDS Platinum Records and the legend himself, Jonny Wright, President of Wright Entertainment Group, are willing to collaborate with them tells you of the magnitude of talent we are talking about here.
No Lonely Hearts is a 5-piece group made up of young, visionary, forward-thinking, seasoned, and diversely talented young men hand-selected during an intense, nationwide audition process that brought together Alex, from New Jersey, Brian and Oliver, both from Florida, Aidan, from Pennsylvania, and Dylan, from Texas. Boy Band from Orlando, Florida, the Boy Band Capital of the World
No Lonely Hearts are poised to outdo all of their predecessors and go on to become the biggest boy band since Backstreet Boys. Brimming with warm and fresh blood, flanked by youthful exuberance, it will not take long for them to start hitting #1 many times across the musical world with their undeniably hooky songs and plenty of boy-next-door charm!
Johnny Wright has worked with some of the industry’s most revered artists, such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, The Jonas Brothers, Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC. His limitless creativity is exactly what an up-and-coming band like No Lonely Hearts, with its whole future ahead of it, needs, and I have no doubt that they are going to do great things together.
No Lonely Hearts may now be the quintessential boy band of the 2020s, a group that seems to acknowledge no boundaries between styles or eras, coming through with a sound that is idiosyncratic and personal.
Their genre-bending style of music will incorporate elements from pop, dance-pop, rhythm and blues, teen pop, and adult contemporary, which will give them broad appeal among different demographics.
This collaboration with KDS Platinum Records and Wright will also elevate No Lonely Hearts to international acclaim.
From the few instances I have seen them perform, I have been made aware of a band that can handle the big adult contemporary R&B and pop genres with equal dexterity as their successful predecessors. The result of their music has been an appeal across the board that can only be matched by a few teen artists of their era.
Over time, they have been developing a virtuosic singing style characterized by swooping, flashy, melodic embellishments. Ultimately, No Lonely Hearts have been hailed as the next strong force in pop-R&B, having showcased a natural instinct to remain either slightly ahead of the curve or innately adapt to trends with remarkable stylistic flexibility.
This is what the future looks like—it is brightly plastered with impish glee as it ushers in the next hot talents with the sight of becoming one of the most ubiquitous hitmakers in the world.
With a genuine chemistry between them that has been quick to show itself off, No Lonely Hearts can only hope to evolve into a dominating musical force that will build one of the most impressive discographies in pop-R&B and go on to inspire generations before them.
No Lonely Hearts are just as buoyant as the music they perform, which is marked by crunchy vocals, eye-catching dance moves, glamorous stage presence, and virtuosic songwriting. Be prepared for moods that make you want to skip down the streets of upper paradise, inspiring your own wild-eyed creativity!
It is now with so much pleasure that I introduce to you your new favorite boy band: No Lonely Hearts. Follow them everywhere and look out for them as they are on a multi-city USA tour…they could be pulling up in your city any time soon, and you don’t want to miss out on such generational talent as this!
Their new single, “Special Treatment,” will be available on all streaming channels on April 10th, 2023.
