We lovelovelove introducing you guys to all of our latest obsessions and today, it’s all about Andrew Belle’s new single, “Dive Deep.” The LA-based singer-songwriter’s new single is the first track released from his upcoming full-length album and we can’t get enough of it! If you aren’t already familiar with Andrew, chances are you’ve probably heard him on some of your favorite TV shows and never realized it! His songs have served as the soundtrack to popular network TV shows like Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, and Pretty Little Liars!

“I wrote ‘Dive Deep’ while thinking about the moment when we let our guard down and invite another person to know us on a deeper, more meaningful level,” explains Belle. “On the surface I wrote it from a romantic perspective but I also meant for it to encapsulate the broader theme of this new album. The hope is that my listeners will know a little more of me and my story through this new song and forthcoming album.”

Listen to “Dive Deep” right here and let us know what you think in the comments section:

Love the song? Buy it on iTunes or stream it on Spotify! More good news: fans expect even more new music from Andrew before the end of the year!

EXCLUSIVE: Hailey Knox Talks Latest EP, Upcoming Tour W/ Charlie Puth & MORE!

ClsB9jKUkAAEk_y
We caught up with up-and-coming singer, Hailey Knox, to get the inside scoop on her recently-released EP “A Little Awkward,” her upcoming tour with Charlie Puth, current obsessions, and SO much more. Check out her Q&A below and get to know the girl who’s definitely going to become your new fave!

We’re obsessed with “Awkward” – what’s the story behind the song?
It’s funny, when I wrote “Awkward” with my songwriting team, “The Dreaded Us”, it felt as if we were ranting about our lives and those who bother us! I never thought people would connect to it as much as they do! We weren’t sure if it would make it as a single, but as we developed the production and lyrics, it grew on all of us.

Tell us about the music video – what was the filming experience like for you?
The “Awkward” video was such a fun experience. The director was awesome and my whole team stood behind the camera as we filmed. We blocked off an alley in NYC and took about 6-7 takes of the video. It was also so cool meeting one of my favorite viners, Nicholas Megalis, who was in the video!

Are there any memorable behind-the-scenes moments you can share with us?
I loved getting to hang with Nicholas Megalis! I grew up watching his vines and videos so getting to actually meet him was awesome. I actually became a bit star-struck when I first spotted him at the video shoot!

How did Nicholas Megalis get involved with the video?
The “Awkward” video is a spin-off of Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and in Dylan’s video, Allen Ginsberg is in the background. We thought Nicholas Megalis would be perfect to play the role of Ginsberg so we reached out and he agreed to be a part of the video!

Tell us about your recently released EP – do you have a favorite track? Which are you most excited to start performing live on tour?
Every song on my EP “A Little Awkward” discusses problems that I’ve gone through during my teenage years. “A Little Awkward” consists of five songs that touch on relationship issues (“Loopty Loop”), feelings of self-doubt (“My Worst Enemy”) and accepting that I’m a weirdo (“Geeks”)! I’m really excited to play “Loopty Loop” on tour because I love the track and I play the trumpet without an actual trumpet! You’ll have to see the show to figure that out! 😉

Tell us about your upcoming tour with Charlie Puth – how did that come about? Are you excited to head on the road?
I’m so psyched for this tour and I cannot wait to meet Charlie Puth. When my manager told me Charlie was a fan of the music and that I’d have the opportunity to open for him, I freaked. It’s so unreal that I’ll be playing shows with him every night! I’m so honored to be his opening act.

What’s the most-played song on your iTunes right now?
The most-played song on my iTunes is “All Time Low” by Jon Bellion.

What’s a song that you love and wish you wrote?
Jon Bellion has so many incredible, catchy songs with such unique production. I would love to have written any of his songs!

When it comes to having stage presence, which are some artists that you look up to?
Allen Stone is one of my favorite artists and has amazing stage presence. His connection with the audience is incredible and you can tell that he truly loves to perform! The first time I saw Allen Stone live, he split the crowd into two and had us dance battle one another. It was epic!

How can fans get your attention on social media?
I love when fans send me videos of them listening or singing along to my music. It’s so crazy to see people jamming out to the EP and knowing all the lyrics.

How would you describe your personal style? Favorite stores to shop at?
My personal style can be defined as retro/casual and occasionally bohemian. I love lace clothing and I tend to wear a lot of black. My favorite stores are Free People, Forever 21, Zara and Urban Outfitters.

What are some of your must-have beauty essentials?
I must have mascara, cover-up and a fun lip color with me. Make-up wipes are always great to quickly take off make up as well!

What kind of advice would you give to young girls who are just starting to wear makeup?
Everyone has their own unique style so if you enjoy wearing makeup then go for it and if not, that’s totally fine too!

What are you hoping to cross off your bucket list this year?
I hope to someday meet or collaborate with Allen Stone, Ed Sheeran or Jon Bellion!

What are some of your current obsessions? (Ex: books/movies/tv shows)
I loved the series “Stranger Things” on Netflix. My sister and I watched the entire show within 2 days! The story is so interesting and it reminded me of “The Twilight Zone” which I also love.

Any special message for your fans?
I love all my Hailiens and chicken is the best!
