 Ariana Grande 
Ariana Grande has blown us all away with her vocals and timeless music! If nothing else she is given all us 90's and 80's baby a rendition of Mariah Carey. Ariana Grande definitely made a grand entrance into the industry with her freshman project "Yours Truly" and she proclaimed her R&B/Pop throne with her sophomore project "My Everything." Now she is simply topping herself with this most recent album "Dangerous Woman." Her music has become so popular that re-makes of her songs have started to create clout on YouTube. The remix "Side to Side"featuring Nicki Minaj was mixed with a song of Lil Kim and has been creating hit all over the blogs.

Artist Spotlight: ODESZA

ODESZA is an American electronica duo consisting of members Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight from Seattle, Washington.  I was surprised to find that I had not yet written about the group because they have been one of my favorites for a long time now, and their music is what originally got me interested in the electronica genre.  The group was formed in 2012 and that same year they released their first album "Summers Gone." The EP "My Friends Never Die" quickly followed in 2013 and in 2014 the LP "In Return" debuted.  Some of my personal favorites from the albums are "Say My Name," "Bloom," "My Friend Never Die," and "IPlayYouListen," but I also think its safe to say that ODESZA has never released a song that I did not like.  The group stated back in March that a new album is in the works, but there has not been much other news on the new album.  The group typically plays a lot of summer music festivals, so be sure to keep an eye out on the upcoming lineups to get a chance to see ODESZA live.  Also be sure to tune in to WNJR if you want to hear more from ODESZA and other artists like them!

Hendrix was born in Seattle, Washington in 1942. He learned how to play guitar when he was a teenager later becoming one of the most famous guitarists in the world. But before rising to fame in the 1960s, Hendrix played backup for talent, such as Same Cooke and B. B. King. Hendrix passed away at the young age of 27, but left a permanent mark not just on music but on the world. For more information about him go here.
