Music Monday: The Happy Fits

It is #MusicMonday and #HipNJ is here to tell you about The Happy Fits, a new indie-rock band with an alternative flair from the Garden State.

Calvin Langman – Vocals, Cello

Luke Davis – Drummer

Ross Monteith – Vocals, Guitar

Although they went to the same high school, the band mates didn’t know each other until they heard from friends that they all played music and were looking to start a band.  What started off as playing cover songs turned into writing original music and playing concerts across Jersey.

After uploading music to Spotify for friends and family, The Happy Fits were discovered by their now manager, who scored them a spot on the “Fresh Finds” playlist.

Be on the lookout for their upcoming album, which is set to be released in February. In the meantime, you can listen to their songs on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Bandcamp, and Amazon

Check out their studio interview and their performance of their original song  “While You Fade Away” above.

#MusicMonday: Kayla Nicole

It’s #MusicMonday, and #HipNJ is here to tell you about an up-and-coming New Jersey artist named Kayla Nicole.

Kayla has always had a love for music, thanks to her mother who would always listen to artists like Whitney Houston, Celin Dion, Dionne Warwick and Lionel Richie.

When she was about 10 years old, she started performing in talent shows at school and “loved every second of it.”

She says that music was not just a passion for her. It was also a coping mechanism for being teased at school, making music even more important in her life.

She started writing lyrics when she was in eighth grade and started producing tracks her senior year of high school in her bedroom.

Her goal for her career currently is to release an album in July 2017, called, Late Night Thoughts, which is about personal experiences in her life. She hopes that many will be able to listen and relate.
