The COVIDiaries By Matt Loveland: #2


The COVIDiaries are a series of entries leading up to the COVID-19 quarantine, written from the perspective of Deitra Magazine's feature photographer, Matt Loveland. While Loveland frequently spends his days and nights capturing live music, fashion, art, comedy and other creative events going on in Springfield, Missouri, these outings — along with the entertainment and arts scene — came to a screeching halt. Following are the moments in time that he was able to capture, as well as his personal reflections of despair, loss, worry and ultimately of hope.

The ReverbNation Submissions: Dinorah


WE LOVE BILINGUAL ARTISTS, and Dinorah delivers that and so much more with her sultry voice and enigmatic interpretive sound. Performing a range of genres including alternative, R&B, soul, Latin rock, psychedelic jazz and Reggae, Dinorah lends an eclectic mood to our favorites playlist. Her expressive raspy voice flutters around the notes with precision and control in songs like "Over You," giving her instant unique identity. "Night Like This" is a deep and dark sensual R&B track, while Déjame Caer is a soulful Latin balled fit for the pop charts. Her signature vocals cry with edge and emotion in the alt-rock song "Whatever Happens," just one of the notably listenable tracks on her Cosmic Vision EP.

Born in La Paz — the capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur — she grew up during her first years in between borders of Tijuana and San Diego, then later moved to China with her parents. Now based back in California, she has performed in many countries, including China, India, the Philippines, Mexico and the U.S. With exposure to so many different countries, musical tastes, languages, and cultures, it's no wonder that Dinorah delivers a transcendent sound that is all her own.

The ReverbNation Submissions: Lo$ol


WHEN A SONG CAPTURES a familiar emotion, it makes the artist relatable to anyone who listens and connects people to the music. In the case of Lo$ol's "You Won't Hurt Me," the feeling of depression is a recognizable wraith and touched an intimate chord in my soul.

Wasteless Apparel: An Interview With Melanie Reyes


TO MEET MELANIE REYES is to meet two distinctly different women. The first — the version that interacts with the general public and participates in the mundane routines of 21st century living — is pleasant, respectful and sociable in all the ways you might expect from a young professional. There’s nothing wrong with that version, but it pales in comparison to the one you meet the moment the conversation turns to matters of style and fashion.

The ReverbNation Submissions: Laci Mercede


SINGER/SONGWRITER, ACTRESS, PODCASTER, PHILANTHROPIST. Laci Mercede is doing it all. Hailing from the sunny state of California, her signature soprano rasp vocals caught our attention in the R&B groove track "Penny." Her voice pierces over Luke Mitchell's smooth velvet accompaniment, with an addictive beat and undeniably catchy hook that showcases Laci's versatility as both songwriter and rising star. With a likeness to vocal queens like Bebe Rexha and Rihanna, Laci Mercede's voice has a quality that's crazily irresistible, and coupled with the ability to spin body-rocking tracks and heartfelt tributes alike (ala the heartbreaking ballad "Jake"), Laci Mercede is up and coming pop gold.

The ReverbNation Submissions: Hy Brasil


AMONG THE MANY SUBMISSIONS from ReverbNation artists, Cali-based band Hy Brasil has always taken a place in our top tier of favorite artist picks. Hy Brasil has infused their unique brand of indie rock pop with 80s synth riffs and a solid beat backbone, topped with vocalist Wyatt Hull’s rangy and enigmatic voice. The 2018 release of their South for the Summer EP is a blend of lysergic 80s electronic and hook-laden power pop. Beginning track "Let Go" caught our attention with its driving rock beat and an incredibly catchy hook that recalls bands like The Killers and Panic! at the Disco. Hy Brasil's 2019 album For the Birds is a smart followup with seasoned and confident tracks like the ambient coastal cruising song "I Will," and "Do-si-do" — a powerhouse of neon-lit, sweeping ambient pop rock. Read more about Hy Brasil in our exclusive interview with frontman Wyatt Hull.
