Your attention please.
Promising singer Conway is an LA-via-Brooklyn popstar who used to play bass in indie bands KEEP READING IT'S ABOUT TO GET GOOD and having spent some time talking to "A&R, labels, assholes, music lovers, fuckfaces" is now signed to Columbia Records and a management company with one or two rather noteworthy clients.
There are other factors worth taking into account and they include:
Talking to Ladygunn, Conway explains that this song, 'Big Talk', is "about LA, the music business, just in general being at a party and thinking how if I have to hear one more person tell me what they fucking do for a living and who they know, I’m going to tear my hair out. So I wrote a trashy melody and then slowed it way down so it was more of a conversation instead of me just getting mad".
There seems to be some sort of free download on offer over here but it looks like a bit of a faff to be honest so good luck with that.
Wood paneling will be big in 2014.
Her video has had over 350,000 views on YouTube.
And probably a lot of that is something to do with being on VEVO and the way VEVO works vis-a-vis cross-promotion and so on but 350,000 views is still pretty good, right?
Before investing in any new pop artiste it is important to know how they look in both colour and black and white images and things seem to be going pretty well for Conway on that front.
A variety of different styles there, we are sure you will agree.
YouTube views aside, over on iTunes, someone says this:
'All the best.'
What's good here is that Swirl360, whoever Swirl360 may be, is very keen on Conway and her music, but has not allowed themselves to become too swept up in the moment.
In a world where artists are pitched at being five-star acts or zero-star acts, with nothing in between, Swirl360 has said to themselves, "do you know what, it might only be a comment on an iTunes product page but I'm not going to take my rating lightly. Is Conway perfect? Perhaps not. But is she extremely good? Yes she is. I will award her four stars out of a possible five."
And in a sense Swirl360's rating is more persuasive than a five-star rating.
If you are on the lookout for a new popstar to get behind in 2014 Conway might be worth keeping an eye on — the EP above is a bit rough around the edges but 'Big Talk' is a complete monster, and while she seems to be equipped with an 'independent spirit' you don't sign to a massive management company — or a massive record label — if you're not in it for the big pop moments, do you?
The ideal plan for the rest of 2014 is this:
Q1: A few more live dates and some 'blog buzz' type stuff while secretly being in the studio with all the people who make the planet's best pop music while not losing sight of her own true identity etc etc etc.
Q2: Massive hit single.
Q3: Massive hit album.
Q4: Job done, let's go to the pub.
The real question is this: how will you keep up to date with Conway's comings and goings?
She's on Facebook, for a start. But does she have a Twitter? Yes she does. Fine. But what about Instagram? OH YES. SoundCloud? Yes, you've already seen the embedded audio to prove it. She's even got an official website. Make no mistake, Conway offers the full online experience.
