NASTY CHERRY: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE FEMALE FOURSOME LAUNCHED BY CHARLI XCX

Indie girl band Nasty Cherry exploded onto the scene in 2019 when pop-icon Charli XCX brought together four young women to create the girl group of her dreams which debuted with the Netflix special “I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry.” The half UK / half US group consists of guitarist Chloe Chaidez, drummer Debbie Knox-Hewson, bassist Georgia Somary, and singer Gabi Bechtel. “Forming a band on a TV show sounded like the most fucking fun and crazy idea,” recalls lead singer Betchel. The intimate 6-p

AT HOME WITH SONGSTRESS STELLA SANTANA

Sonically, Stella Santana is laid-back and high-pitched; an eccentric and elegant contrast that lend her melodies a very particular sass. Yes – her father is one of the most famous guitarists in the world (does the name Carlos Santana, ring a bell?), but Stella’s professional and personal venture wasn’t music-focused. When high school was over, she chose Pepperdine University over guitars, detached from the arenas and stages that she grew up with. Stella made a pivotal switch from intercultural

MEET OUR "NOW" ISSUE COVER STAR - THE SOULFUL SONGSTRESS JESS GLYNNE

Meet The Untitled Magazine’s NOW issue cover star, Jess Glynne, the 29-year-old Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter making chart-topping history. Her catapult to the top goes back to 2015 with her 3x platinum-selling debut album “I Cry When I Laugh”. It debuted at number one in the UK, spanning 12 million worldwide singles sales, 39 weeks on the UK top 10, 2.5 billion Spotify streams, and a sold-out UK arena tour. Forward to 2018, her sophomore album, “Always in Between,” repeated her success

ALISON MOSSHART CHATS "LOS TRACHAS" HER LATEST EXHIBITION WITH DANNY ZOVATTO

Alison Mosshart’s work is a catalog of observations, obsessions and interrogations of self and everyone else and every place she’s been. Lead vocalist for famous rock bands the Kills and The Dead Weather, she has spent the last 26 years on the road performing and living a predominately transitory life. She has a particular penchant for fast cars and complex characters — the car a symbol of power, protection, function, simplicity, easy beauty. Her people — ever in flux — are the opposite, often painted with dubious double, triple, quadruple features, emphasizing conflicting feelings, desires and agendas.

COBI: THE MUSICIAN MIXING FOLK, ROCK, AND VULNERABILITY

Cobi is getting back to the roots of music. Tapping on political turmoil in the form of r&b, blues, and classic rock, his tunes delve into a broader theme that touches on human vulnerability. His debut solo single, “Don’t You Cry For Me,” was released in May 2016 and hit No. 1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart a month later, landing him a spot on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Cobi’s lyrics come from a deep place of his own, managing to touch on the discrepancies of humanity that affect us all–hope, heartbreak, and loneliness.

ELLE KING ON SHAKING HER SPIRIT, SOBRIETY AND EMPOWERING OTHERS THROUGH MUSIC

In an industry where artists are often manufactured, worked to the bone, and lyrics are bought and auto-tuned, Elle King is the exception. Her notorious path to success, marked by her ubiquitous single Ex’s & Oh’s, wasn’t an easy one, but it led her to create her most cathartic work to date, her sophomore album: Shake The Spirit. With thirteen self-written, soul-quenching songs, Elle King explains the year she almost lost her mind. “How do I sum up ‘The year I lost my fucking mind’ in an album title?’” she says. “Because that’s really what this record is about…” Her new album reveals a raw portrait of an artist on the edge, sharing her pain, heartache and humor with a touching venerability and the swagger of a spitfire.

"SOUL OF A NATION: ART IN THE AGE OF BLACK POWER" INTERVIEW WITH CURATOR ASHLEY JAMES

The show begins in 1963, before the emergence of the Black Power Movement, and it goes on to trace how artists across the country continued to work in collectives, communities, and individually during the rise of the Black Power Movement. In an exclusive interview with Indira Cesarine for The Untitled Magazine, curator Ashley James explains the grounds and importance of the political art resurgence.

MENA SUVARI: FROM 'AMERICAN BEAUTY' TO 'AMERICAN WOMAN'

“Even as a woman in 1975, she can do it without a man and do it even better,” actress Mena Suvari says of her character, Kathleen, on upcoming Paramount series “American Woman.” The show, set to premiere on June 7th, is executive produced by Kyle Richards of “Real Housewives” fame, who drew from her own life as inspiration for the series... Suvari, now 39, rose to fame at only 20-years-old for her award-winning performance as sultry, wide-eyed cheerleader Angela Hayes in the 1999 drama “American Beauty.” Despite her breakout success and subsequent fame, Suvari remains refreshingly humble and down-to-earth.

RENA LOVELIS FROM HEY VIOLET TALKS ABOUT LOVE AND MUSIC

Hey Violet has not always been the alt-pop band they are today – they were originally an all-female pop-punk band from Los Angeles called Cherri Bomb. Over the years the band, which is now comprised of Rena Lovelis (lead vocals), Miranda Miller (rhythm guitar, keyboard, vocals), Nia Lovelis (drums, vocals), Casey Moreta (lead guitar, vocals), and Iain Shipp (bass), have evolved from their punk roots to their current sound that is making waves.

MARTIN GARRIX ON NEW MUSIC, COLLABORATIONS & WORDS OF WISDOM

Martin Garrix is living proof that a strong worth ethic and a positive attitude will bring you far in life. The music prodigy has done more before he hit twenty than many do in a lifetime. As a world renowned DJ, producer and musician he has traveled around the globe playing sold-out venues and doing residencies at famed nightclubs – and he can’t even drink yet! While constantly being on tour and in the studio might be enough for most, Garrix somehow found the time to start his own label, STMPD RCRDS and he still manages to fit in benefit shows for non-profit organizations, including SOS Children’s Villages, Fuck Cancer and War Child.

NATHALIE BONDIL TALKS MAPPLETHORPE, GAULTIER AND THE FUTURE OF THE MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

The Untitled Magazine had the opportunity to travel to Montreal, Canada to visit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and attend the gala opening of Focus: Perfection Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition. Editor-in-chief Indira Cesarine sat down for a one-on-one with the museum’s director and chief curator, Nathalie Bondil, who since taking the helm in 2007 has distinguished the museum as not only the most visited museum in Canada, but firmly positioned it as an internationally renowned voice for arts and culture.

She has dramatically expanded the museum to include several new buildings, as well as converted a church into a 462-seat concert hall which presents over 200 performances a year.

PUNK TRIO POTTY MOUTH ON THEIR DIY ROOTS AND FEMINISM IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Abby Weems, Ally Einbeinder, and Victoria Mandanas of Potty Mouth are defying everyone’s expectations, including their own. The post-punk band grew out of a shared desire to be in an all female music group, with no intentions other than finding an outlet to play shows and write songs. Since their 2013 debut album, Hell Bent, the band’s career has taken on a life of it’s own and has seen Abby, Ally, and Victoria move to Los Angeles and graduate from playing shows in DIY basements to rocking out in giant venues. Last year saw the release of a self-titled EP and recently Potty Mouth debuted the video for “Smash Hit,” an infectiously sarcastic response to those pressing them to make a radio ready single.

EMILY KINNEY ON CONVICTION AND HOW SHE BALANCES ACTING AND MUSIC

Emily Kinney is showing all of the multi-hyphenates out there how it’s done! The actress and musician is best known for her four seasons as an actress on hit television series, Walking Dead, but with the upcoming release of her new 7” record, Back On Love, she is on her way to becoming a household name on screen and in radio waves.

GRACE ON HER DEBUT ALBUM 'FMA' AND STAYING TRUE TO HERSELF

Grace may have an older brother in the music industry, Conrad Sewell, but she certainly doesn’t live in anyone’s shadow. The up-and-coming singer/songwriter released her now platinum debut record, FMA, earlier this summer and has been going nonstop ever since. The album’s unapologetic motto, “Forgive My Attitude,” is a tongue-in-cheek call to stick to your guns and rings especially true in today’s culture as more and more young women find their own voices. With self-affirming anthems like “Hell of A Girl,” “Hope You Understand,” and a hit remake of Leslie Gore’s 1962 feminist classic “You Don’t Own Me,” Grace is poised to be the reigning songstress of the next generation of empowered females who know what they want and aren’t afraid to go out and get it.
