Recent post-Voice releases include an album from Dixson, known to Voice fans as Darius Scott, and singles from Amanda Brown and Thunderstorm Artis.
Here’s a bit about each of those releases. The links take you to the releases on Apple Music.
Dixson, aka Darius Scott on Season 9, released an album called “004Daisy” in mid-September. And you might say it’s being well-received. “Cherry Sorbet” featuring Sevyn Street and “Heat” featuring Tinashe have each already been streamed more than 500,000 times on Spotify. Dixson explained thee album title this way: “Daisy is an operating system. She’s a piece of software that changes my life, changes my sound. She’s running the show. She’s the one pressing play, flipping the beat and all that s–t. It’s her world, I’m just living in it. We fall in love, she f—s my world up. This is the prequel to it. You’re seeing bits and pieces of what she’s doing. Hopefully for this next project, she’ll have a real character representation. I’m excited about Daisy. I’m excited for the world to meet her and talk to her. She’s a little saucy.”
Amanda Brown from Season 3 has a new song out called “Amazing.” Amanda said the song is “my farewell to a life and relationship that had become dark and problematic. I thought I’d live in New York City forever, but the life I was living was no longer serving me and it wasn’t sustainable. I wasn’t being kind to myself and was running from the truth for years until the truth was no longer avoidable.” So she left her partner of six years and New York and headed to the West Coast where “I made it happen for myself with a leap of faith.” She wrote “Wildfire” with Somme and it’s one of the tracks that will be featured on an EP she’s planning to release later this year.
Thunderstorm Artis, third on Season 18, recently dropped a new single called “Wildfire.” Thunderstorm turned to music as an outlet following the sudden death of his father at age 13 and says the new single is reflective of “my history. At some point in my life, I realized I’d put up these walls to protect myself from the pain I felt after losing my dad. But as I got older, the walls had become more like a prison. ‘Wildfire’ is about how we all need someone to help us burn those walls down, so that we can find healing instead of hiding from the world.”
