Bad Luck, a five-track EP, is James Droll’s debut solo project. This collection of soul-searching songs explores the heart after the fall of a relationship, something that connects anyone who listens. The dark pop tunes are filled with stunning lyrics, tight harmonies, and swelling chords that reach right into the heart and twist with the sweetest of pain.

Recounting sleepless nights praying for even the shortest rest, feeling for the warm body and finding only an empty space in the bed, and finally beginning the healing that does eventually come, Bad Luck is all of us. Droll’s voice whispers, soars, devastates, and soothes. And in the end, we learn with him that luck, like life, is a balance. With the bad comes the good, and rebuilding is not only possible—it’s inevitable.

Produced by Joshua Niles (Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Barenaked Ladies), Bad Luck will be released on January 13, 2017. A Friday, of course.

Daniella Mason
Daniella Mason
Daniella Mason might be known for her pop songwriting sensibilities, but don't let that fool you. Hailed by The Guardian as "a serious musician with a distinctly pop edge," the indie songstress' music is marked by an undeniable streak of self-awareness that even the most savvy of audiophiles can enjoy.

Mason's dreamy single "Shade of You" landed a coveted spot on iTunes' front page, topping the platform's "What's Hot" section. The vibey, electro-pop track, situated among singles from alt/indie heavy hitters the likes of Betty Who, Bleachers, and Paloma Faith, was the only self-released song to make the honorable lineup.

"True talent always rises to the top," contributor Bradley Stern (SpinMedia blog Idolator) wrote. "Case in point? Daniella Mason... It's an unassuming, catchy slice of mature pop— one that positions Daniella as one of the newest and most exciting ones to watch this year."

Born in PA then raised on a Christmas tree farm in Maryland, self-taught artist Lukr began playing music as a kid beginning on an $80 piano. After forming and fronting his first band Farewell Flight at 17, he led them on dozens of successful DIY coast-to-coast tours in the US, playing hundreds of shows before relocating to Nashville, TN.

Working behind-the-scenes with artists from LA, NY, and abroad, he co-wrote songs that have appeared in TV shows like Scream, Hart of Dixie, Longmire, as well as in worldwide television ads. In 2016, he independently made his solo debut with the cinematic Fucked Up Summer. Finding its way to fans from around the globe, the song became a Spotify viral hit and passed a million streams in just 12 weeks. In August, he followed up with Scarecrow, a sophomore single that has since broken 3 million spins.

Self-styled as "neon grunge pop", Lukr's uniquely textured vocal and instantly nostalgic lyrics weave among organic instruments and shimmering sample-based pop tracks. The visually compelling live presentation features Lukr leading multiple co-creators, playing a what looks like creative musical chairs as they trade on and off with synths, guitars, trap sets and drum machines. Having released both a video for Scarecrow and a remix for Fucked Up Summer in the fall, he rounded out the year with a cover of a favorite song, Counting Crows’ A Long December. 2017 finds Lukr preparing to release a deluge of music with a series of mixtapes.
