Welcome back to Just Discovered, where we introduce you to our new favourite artists and bands that have caught our eyes and ears this week...

PHIL GOOD


First up this week is Elektra Records signee and LA based singer / songwriter Phil Good, with his single 'Everything's Good'.


He shared:


“Even though I’m sarcastically saying that ‘everything’s good’ in the song, I think it’s important to be optimistic and remind yourself and those around you that things could always be much worse. You’re still here, reading this on your phone, maybe on the couch or the toilet.. who knows. But you’re alive and breathing and that alone is pretty ‘everything’s good’ right now.”

The track follows Phil's single and video 'Living With No One' released in April. Earlier this year, Phil featured on 'Stuck On You' - the lead single off GRAMMY® Award-winning producer RAC’s new album Boy. Additionally, Phil released an official remix of his track “Do You Ever?” from the producer. Last Fall Billboard announced Phil Good’s Elektra Records signing, and shared his major label debut single and music video 'Wonder'.


Converting audiences to fans on the road, Phil recently supported Jaymes Young on his Happiest Year North America Tour, and joined labelmate Tones and I on select United States tour dates. Listen to the track HERE Instagram: @philgoodsmusic


JETT JONES


23 year old American artist Jett Jones released his track 'Play It Cool' back in April of this year.


The track is about being in a budding relationship where "I'm unsure of whether my partner wants to let it be known publically" says Jett. The chorus builds on the story, telling her that she knows I’m her man, but we can “play it cool” and keep things on the lowdown for a while if that’s what makes her more comfortable.

As a kid, Jett moved all across America and Europe due to his dad's work in the US military. Moving could be tough but also exposed Jett to all different kinds of cultures and experiences that ultimately made him who he is today.


"I feel like I gained a lot of perspective from a young age that has truly shaped the way I approach music. I love to experiment with all types of sounds and sub-genres to not only challenge myself, but because I feel that you have to break out of your sonic comfort zone to be able to express a full range of emotions".

Q&A


'About Us', an early June release from Q&A is a song about two people.


"We all know that the end of a relationship can be very strenuous. There are a lot of things that can go on in a person’s mind during that time. A lot of introspection, doubt, blame and not to mention melancholy. In other words, it’s never easy. This happened to me and the song is my way of getting closure"



Q&A began as an acoustic project of the well-known Finnish rock singer Mikko Rautakallio, whose previous efforts included the critically acclaimed groups The Pandaand The Black Market. Rautakallio had for a long time envisioned an acoustic project to complement his rock bands; the more silent and tender, the better. Hence, Q&A was conceived.


After a small hiatus the development of the sophomore Q&A album was commenced, this time with a slightly bigger and more polished production. After three years of relentless labour, Q&A will reappear with a dozen new songs, produced by the production duo Recorder & DJMG. The bigger repertoire of instruments has added a subtle layer to Q&A:s expression, still remaining faithful to its acoustic origins. Rautakallio’s lyrics are, as always, introspective yet uplifting, empowering and occasionally deeply romantic.

ESTELLA DAWN


Estella Dawn's March 2020 release 'Parting' is a powerful and vocally driven piano ballad with a dynamic chorus focusing on the theme asking someone to let you go.

Estella is a New Zealand born, Colorado based singer-songwriter. At 23 her work speaks with maturity and confidence. Her songs are a mixture of pop, neo-soul and rock, delivered with an open hearted honesty. While her songs bring you close, her voice never lets you go, Estella sings with the melodic command, subtlety and range that spans genres from Billie Holiday to Billie Eilish.
