The ReverbNation Submissions: Gabe Lopez


Gabe Lopez - Los Angeles, California
Pop / Rock / Dance
Song Submitted: “Lasso


AN AMERICAN POP-ROCK singer/songwriter and producer, Gabe Lopez caught our ear with his popular single, “Lasso.” It showcases a strong hook, as well as a blend of danceable pop and rock elements. The accompanying music video tells the story of two friends with an underlying romantic entanglement. Lopez recently crossed the US and UK, opening for Belinda Carlisle on her 2014-2017 tours at venues such as the Indigo at the O2, Manchester Academy, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, The Fonda in LA and B.B. King’s NYC. With a number of accolades under his belt, including radio play and landing on various top 100 charts, Lopez is making a name for himself in the new pop generation.

The ReverbNation Submissions: Matt Cusson


Matt Cusson - New York, New York
Singer Songwriter / R&B / Pop
Song Submitted: “Leaving L.A.


A PHENOMENAL SINGER AND piano player, Matt Cusson crafts soulful, jazzy blues songs that melt us into a sweet state of mind. With the vocal finesse of Adam Levine and the oh-so-buttery John Mayer, he’s one of the better male vocalists we’ve heard — like, ever. From vocal control to dynamics, Cusson has us captivated. And with the addition of compelling song arrangements, as well as background vocals, soulful R&B has met its match. If this guy’s music isn’t in your playlist, you are missing out.

One day back in October while shopping through the mall, I found THE most adorable holiday hair band; because you know that’s when Christmas starts in retail. Instantly, ideas started rushing through my mind of hair and makeup for a holiday beauty shoot. So, we found our model — the lovely Emma Elliott — and got everything all squared away!

Beauty Review: November Ipsy Glam Bag Subscription


by Tamara Styer
Editor-In-Chief
Just like many of our Deitra Magazine readers, I am a self-proclaimed beauty product junkie. I am obsessed with face creams, serums, whipped concoctions that smooth out my laugh lines, lipsticks, stains and velvety smooth overnight balms... You name it, I love it.

With this knowledge in mind, it wouldn't be a surprise then to find out that I'm also addicted to subscription beauty boxes. I have tried several, but I've been consistently thrilled with both the Allure Beauty Box and Ipsy Glam Bag. Today I'll be sharing with you, dear readers, about what I got in my November 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag Subscription.

The ReverbNation Submissions: SALIO


WITHIN THE FIRST THREE seconds of hearing SALIO, we sent her an offer. Her voice is seasoned with a raspy, velvety tone — equal parts emotion and control. Her songwriting is commanding, and holds the depth of an artist who is in tune with her own creative point of view. “Bring Me Love” is a jazzy, neo-soul tune that makes us move, but the rest of SALIO’s playlist is worth a good listen, with songs like the soulful acoustic ballad “Lonesome Tales,” and a smattering of europop dance and experimental electronica songs.

Beauty Review: bareminerals BarePRO Performance Wear Foundation


by Kristen Lentz

For around two and a half years now, I’ve been using bareMinerals products, such as their Original Foundation and finishing powders, blush, bronzer and Lash Domination mascara. I love the soft finish of the powders and how much volume I got from the mascara, as well as how it helps balance out my naturally oily skin. Recently, I’ve discovered my new love for their Bare Pro Foundation and Concealer! While I still like the powders, and still use them on more care-free days, the Bare Pro collection provides fuller, longer-lasting coverage.

Editor’s Favorites: Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil


by Tamara Styer

Every night as I tuck myself into bed, I begin applying an array of products, from tip to toe. I’ve been doing this ritual since I was a teenager, sampling creams, oils and toners from my mother’s medicine cabinet. Now coming up on the precipice of my 35th year, I am so grateful for the plethora of preventative and anti-aging products I have relentlessly applied for over half my life. Over those years — as you can imagine — I have used hundreds, maybe even thousands of products. There are so many that I love, and so many new products to try, it’s just endless.

Lydia: Taking it to the Street


THIS INDIE ROCK BAND out of the American Southwest is taking their organic ambient sound to new places, touring the States with a fresh album drop entitled Liquor. The brainchild of frontman and guitarist Leighton Antelman, Lydia draws influence from guys like Coldplay and Radiohead. Together with Matt Keller and Shawn Strader, Antelman performs songs with the sole purpose of provoking emotion. With a consistent touring schedule, fans at every stop and over 60,000 followers on social media, these guys don’t subscribe to the idea of fame, and are just along for the ride. Performing together on and off the road for the past ten years, Lydia delivers a breezy, feel-good sound that has captured our attention and landed a permanent spot our playlists. Deitra Magazine photographer Leslie Tucker got the chance to chat with Lydia when they performed at the Outland Ballroom in Springfield, Missouri on the Midwestern leg of their tour.
