Rapidly rising artist Etherdene has released her thoughtful and endearing new single “You Are My World,” continuing to demonstrate the wealth of charm and lasting appeal that the songwriter turned producer/vocalist has showcased in just six months of releasing music.

Releasing a single every month or so since June, the artist has demonstrated a talent for tapping into relatable and engrossing experiences and feelings that feel cathartic and rewarding, exploring them in a fashion that feels self-expressive and emotional.

“You Are My World” is a track lovingly written about having a profound admiration for someone and feeling enamoured with them while also preparing yourself for the possibility that the feeling might not be reciprocated. This makes for a nuanced and multi-faceted release that juxtaposes its increased emotional stakes with a laid-back and effortlessly dreamy soundscape that is effortlessly easy to love yourself within.

Etherdene is an expert at interjecting her sound with these soothing qualities that add a sense of serenity and bliss to any kind of occasion, living up to her name by carrying around this aura that feels free and light. “You Are My World” is a moving and meaningful exploration of love that captures the euphoria of the feeling with a hopeful yet cautious eye on the future.

Lover of all things music, Vanessa De La Rosa has been involved in the music scene most of her life in different capacities. All genres welcome, she is a past master in the art of "nerding-out" with music, and is excited to explore that passion by sharing the stories of artists everywhere.

Milford, CT native and current Hamden, CT resident Frank Viele is prepping to release a brand new album entitled The Trouble With Desire, which is set to exhibit the musician’s exceptional storytelling and strong roots in a wide range of genres from heartland rock and blues to folk and country.

To further introduce the project, Viele returns today with his newest cut from the forthcoming LP, “Sleepless Nights Alone,” along with an accompanying lyric video.

2023 was a big year for Frank Viele, as he became the first Connecticut artist to win the prestigious award for ‘Act of The Year’ at the 2023 New England Music Awards. Viele thus follows in the footsteps of previous award winners, including Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Dwight & Nicole, Ryan Montbleau, Air Traffic Controller, Sarah Barrios, Deer Tick, Lori McKenna, Martin Sexton, Liz Longley, Chris Trapper, Adam Ezra Group, The Mallet Brothers, and more.

Earlier this year, Viele shared another new single entitled “Mountains We Can Climb.” Previously, 2023 found him sharing an additional handful of singles — “Hearts We Left Behind,” “The Trouble With Desire,” “Claws,” and “Trying To Raise A Man” — which were recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. This is the town that launched the careers of legends such as Aretha Franklin, The Allman Brothers, and Wilson Pickett. It is also the place where The Rolling Stones recorded “Wild Horses” and which boasts the roots of modern greats such as Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, and The Alabama Shakes.

Received with glowing reviews, these four songs made their way onto outlets across the industry, including American Songwriter, Boston’s Country 102.5, and NPR. He additionally toured nationally as both a headline act and also as a support act for rock legend John Waite, Season 9 American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, and folk rock troubadour Jeffrey Gaines.

Frank Viele’s newest single, “Sleepless Nights Alone,” is out now via all DSPs. Stay tuned for more information on his forthcoming full-length LP, arriving later this year.
