Alexandra Lillian Reminisces On Intimate Moments In New Single “Ventura Boulevard”

“Ventura Boulevard” is a heartfelt pop country anthem looking back on Lillian’s most intimate moments in the City of Angels. 

Country pop singer songwriter Alexandra Lillian reminisces on her Los Angeles romance through rose-colored lenses in her new single “Ventura Boulevard,” out January 7th. Lillian meets listeners with tender poetry on this track, inviting them to explore a love story that unfolded along the Ventura Boulevard streets. The artist brilliantly showcases her warm tone while recounting a night on the boulevard with her love interest; the two meandered through the neighborhood as he opened up to the singer-songwriter about his childhood. Cascading drum beats, decadent electric guitars, and a booming bass line caress Lillian’s powerhouse vocals throughout “Ventura Boulevard.” Lillian delivers a track with colorful lyrics reminiscent of a Taylor Swift anthem layered with the passionate vocals of a Carrie Underwood chart topper.

Country pop lovers can find this beyond catchy anthem on all major streaming platforms on January 7th.

Despite the absence of music history in both her maternal and paternal bloodlines (excluding her paternal great-grandmother Lillian, who was a blues singer), Alexandra’s loved ones encouraged her to start performing so she could channel her energy levels and extroverted personality in environments for which they were best suited. Her first performance memory is a ballet recital when she was three years old; she loved it so much, she refused to get off the stage after the curtains closed. Her mother eventually lured her off, and her energy, extroverted nature, radiance, and determinism still prevail today. Alexandra pursued musical theatre for seven years, stopping her freshman year of high school. By then, she was about a year into guitar lessons and voice training. She was raised on 1970s and 80s classic rock and in her teenage years, she developed a love for pop music. Alexandra still has a deep appreciation for both genres today and integrates them into her country sound.

While she would not focus on country music until beginning her own projects, Alexandra’s introduction traces back to Taylor Swift’s self-titled debut album followed by “Fearless,” to which she remembers dancing and acting out the lyrics in her sixth grade best friend’s bedroom. Around the same time, Carrie Underwood’s early hits such as “Before He Cheats,” “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” and “All-American Girl” topped her iPod’s “most played” song list. The main aspect of country music that speaks to Alexandra is storytelling.Taylor and Carrie still remain at the root of her inspiration, though she would later learn about (and dearly appreciate) some 20th-century “women of country” who paved the way for succeeding generations: Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, and Shania Twain. It only took hearing one song from each woman for Alexandra to become hooked and motivated to explore their histories.

Alexandra moved from her native San Francisco to Boston in August 2018 and felt (“wicked”) inspired by the music scene while earning her B.S. in journalism from Boston University. Her songwriting journey began in late April 2019 when she took her first two originals, “Arizona Boy” and “Once a Babe” to Bristol Studios, catching producers’ attention. Alexandra recorded both songs in May of that year and they were released on all streaming platforms as singles in June. Since the release, “Arizona Boy” has been aired on radio stations and garnered listeners in the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Mauritius, Russia, Philippines, Taiwan, and Australia. Within one week of the initial airing, the song was ranked 4 or more stars out of 6 by several disc jockeys worldwide. As of August 2020, the song has over 1200 radio airplays.

Alexandra released her debut EP, “Aesthetics,” in September 2019, her debut album, “Just Drive,” in August 2020, and a collection of covers from iconic “women of country” in September 2020. She now resides in Los Angeles and is excited to be back in the Golden State. In 2021, Alexandra released her first collaborative record with the production company NOYZR, “Taking Chances” (featuring vocals from Matt Norman) along with her second full-length studio album, “Broken Streak,” which features collaborations with various LA-based artists including Aaron Lee, frontman of the rock band Killin’ Candace, hip hop/R&B singer-songwriter and producer Medrano, and Boston-based artist Christina Howard, frontwoman for the rock group Brightside.

Music Stars Come Together From Rock To Pop, They’re All United In One Cause – To Save The Planet

“The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.”— Al Gore

“Born Free” album was released on Minds Behind the Music label only a few weeks before the world came face-to-face with yet another wave of extreme weather when England and Northern Europe fell victim to scorching temperatures. Recent events aside, it hasn’t been a good year for Planet Earth. While monsoon rains have unleashed disastrous flooding in Bangladesh, East Africa was hit with a drought that’s brought millions on the brink of famine. The climate is changing and the most alarming part is that scientists say the worst is yet to come.

The previous fundraising album by Minds Behind the Music included such stars as Simon Kirke of Bad Company, Mungo Jerry and Ric Sanders of Fairport Convention. Thanks to these legendary artists, the release saw mainstream distribution. Now Brad Walsh, Lorenzo Cabanizza, Jay Elle, Tom Tikka, The Remnants, Doctor Zee and many others have come together to raise awareness about the plight our planet is in. Since almost nothing speaks to humans more than music, the label and the artists are hoping that the world will listen … before it’s too late.

Kate Stewart’s New single “The Game” is a royal flush

Kate Stewart

Kate Stewart presents a new single called “The Game,” which displays the realm of not getting played by anyone. This track “The Game” reflects on an opportunity to show power and get back to yourself when you’ve fallen astray. Lyrically saying how it feels to know exactly what you want when you want it. It’s all about playing your own game, one where you have control of the outcome and finding a more self-assured version of yourself, all the while having your own full house.

“The game is the game” is just something that I and all my friends have always said. Whenever I try to explain it to people they never understand, you just have to hear it in context to get it! However I thought it would make a really cool title for a song, and in this instance ‘The Game’ symbolizes not letting anything or anyone get in the way of you or what you’re trying to do. You just have to look forward and enjoy the ride, looking back will only hinder all the progress you’ve made. Don’t let anyone dull your shine, the games the game!” – KATE STEWART
