Let us put it this way: this week’s Fresh Music Friday is stacked! We have tracks from everyone from Big Time Rush, to Tyler Posey, to one of our favorites, Benson Boone! There is something here for everyone!
Big Time Rush – ‘Waves’
Is there a better way to kick off Fresh Music Friday than with a new Big Time Rush song? We don’t think so! ‘Waves’ is truly a whole new sound for the band, and is making us even more excited for the upcoming album. There’s nothing that screams summer to us more than ‘Waves’ – we promise you will be as obsessed as we are.
Listen to ‘Waves’ here!
Kimberly Perry – ‘If I Die Young Pt. 2’
Before you ask: no, we are not okay.
Thirteen years after the release of ‘If I Die Young,’ Kimberly Perry, who’s now on a solo venture, is releasing the second half to that story. And this is songwriting at its finest. This is how you reel an audience in as you kick off your solo career.
Not only are we getting this beautiful continuation, but we are also getting Kimberly’s EP, BLOOM, on June 9th!

Tyler Posey – ‘Runnin’
Tyler Posey is one of our favorite artists around right now – the exploration and craftsmanship in his music have had us hooked for so long! Tyler’s newest single, ‘Runnin,’ which is off of his upcoming album (which will bless our ears May 26th) is our favorite song of Tyler’s so far. Yes, we are making that big claim!
This track acts as our final glimpse before the album, and we have to say, this may be a highlight album of the year for us if the singles are any indication.

PJ Harding – ‘It Wasn’t Enough’
We are always in the market for a good cry in the shower, so thank you PJ Harding for providing us with the perfect soundtrack to that. ‘It Wasn’t Enough’ is a beautiful, folk-like, heartbreaking track. You can hear PJ’s plea to know what went wrong throughout the lyrics of the track, the vulnerability being shown is blowing us away.

Caroline Romano – ‘Mississippi Air’
Caroline Romano is no stranger to Fresh Music Friday, we always love showing her love! ‘Mississippi Air’ at its core, is a love letter to adultolence and home. This track is backed by a dreamy, 2000s Vanessa Carlton/Sara Bareilles-esque instrumental that has us completely hooked.

Canaan Cox – End Up In A Song
Listen, pop-country will always be a subgenre we gravitate towards! Canaan Cox has mastered that subgenre here on his EP, End Up In A Song. We love all five tracks here, but the title track, ‘End Up In A Song’ has to be our favorite. We can easily see Canaan being the next big thing on the scene. If you love artists like Dan + Shay or Hunter Hayes, you’re going to love Canaan!

Catie Turner – ‘Easy’
Catie Turner is one of our favorites here on Fresh Music Friday. She is constantly putting out music that further puts her in a class all her own when it comes to songwriting and individuality in an oversaturated industry. ‘Easy,’ in our humble opinion, is a career-high for Catie Turner!

Benson Boone – PULSE
We are ending Fresh Music Friday with an EP we have been eagerly anticipating, Benson Boone’s PULSE! This five-track (an EP sweet spot, in our opinion) project beautifully demonstrates Benson’s strengths as an artist. Anyone could fall in love with who he is as an artist just with one listen-through. Our stand-out track is Coffee Cake!’
