Sydney Sprague releases new single FOMO

Honored to release Sydney’s incredibly touching single, FOMO, from her upcoming EP Bad Patchwork.   You can take a listen here! smarturl.it/spragueFOMO   Lyrics: I can’t even I can’t not Think about leaving when the times get hard The clock keeps ticking A forward March Into the oblivion Into the infinite stars The weight of it keeps me on my toes   Where you wanna go, You just wanna pace in the middle of the road Or you just wanna stay, You don’t really know why it feels like home You just gotta go right now, Maybe it’s the fear of missing out   Can someone tell me what I am I don’t remember and I don’t understand The way you see right through me But not at all Not translucent, not a bulletproof wall   Where you wanna go, You just wanna pace in the middle of the road Or you just wanna stay, You don’t really know why it feels like home You just gotta go right now, Maybe it’s the fear of missing out...

Sydney Sprague enchants 80/20

So excited to have Indie-Pop Folk artist Sydney Sprague as the newest member of the 80/20 fam.  And guess what?  Her newest single F O M O is dropping next week following her new EP, Bad Patchwork, coming out next month.   FB: facebook.com/sydneysprague IG:  @sydneysprague Web: http://www.sydneysprague.com/   About Sydney Sprague: Sydney Sprague is an Indie-Pop Folk artist currently based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Born in Austin, Texas, Sydney absorbed the music that surrounded her which inspired a career as an artist in 2008.   Lending her unique voice to universal themes like love, conflict, vengeance, and someone named “Steve”; Sydney followed up her last EP, Dark Cloud, with Bad Patchwork released under 80/20 Records. Often compared to heady artists including Alanis Morisette, Michelle Branch and Feist gives truth to the broad range of Sydney’s immense songwriting talent and vocal prowess. “Any powerful woman in music should be on the edge of their seat for what is to come next.” (Rhi Ramsay, Music Existence)....
Promise to Myself making trouble with 80/20

Promise to Myself making trouble with 80/20

The 80/20 team is hanging out at BandSplash and we just got off announcing on Facebook live the newest addition to our roster, Promise to Myself!  They released their debut album last year, with their single ‘Another Tragedy’ spinning at Dutch Bros. all over the country.  Proud to be a part of their sophomore album releasing late 2019 / early 2020.   FB: https://www.facebook.com/PromiseToMyself/ IG: @promisetomyself_band Web: https://promisetomyself.com/   About Promise to Myself: Promise To Myself is a Pop-Punk Alternative band from Phoenix, AZ. Their fun and creative energy can be described as if Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, and Waterparks had a fight to the death in a game of dodgeball, and the winner end up being Big Time Rush.  Inspired by “Dial Tones” from As It Is; the band was formed by Karl Nagy (Lead Vocals and Bass), Brad Stockton (Lead Guitar), Zack Bruge (Rhythm Guitar and Backup Vocals), and Tony Galvan (Drums). Promise To Myself takes an active role in supporting their community, such as the RnR Memorial Fund, where they take ‘RnR’ stickers to all of their shows and created a special ‘t-shirt’ where the proceeds go towards the fund. They even documented on Instagram taking ‘Jerome the Gnome’ on their travels to Austin during SXSW in awareness for the charity.  The band believes every fan is a part of their ever-growing family in the crazy thing called life. In 2018, Promise To Myself released their debut album, “One For The Runaways”, along with accompanying music videos for “Another Tragedy” and “Monster”. The single “Another Tragedy” was played at Dutch Bros. across the country.  They recently...

Mega Ran drops single ‘SUMIMASEN’

Mega Ran drops single ‘SUMIMASEN’

Oh snap! We just announced Mega Ran last week and his single ‘SUMIMASEN’ just dropped today. Listen to it here. After his 8th trip to Japan on tour last year, Ran decided to make the most of the moment and shoot a music video out there with director Ikuo Yamamoto. The song is called “Sumimasen,” which is a word that loosely translates to “Excuse Me,” which is how Mega and guest Alfred Banks politely push their way through the competition. Nice guys can finish first, as shown in this quirky video shot in Shibuya on a rainy night.  “The video was so much fun,” Ran says. “What better way to immortalize everything I love about this place than in a new music video? Ikuo-san perfectly captured the moment…video games, food and good times.” Check out the music video below....
Nerdcore Hip-Hop Rapper Mega Ran joins 80/20!!

Nerdcore Hip-Hop Rapper Mega Ran joins 80/20!!

A new challenger approaches!  We are extremely excited to announce the next member of the 80/20 family, Mega Ran. If you haven’t seen the waves he’s been making you need to check him out.     We’ll be releasing his next single, SUMIMASEN, on February 26th.  Watch Mega Ran explore Japan in the music video that premiered on HipHopDX here.   —About Mega Ran— Random, aka Mega Ran, aka RandomBeats… Teacher, Rapper, Hero. Guinness World Record Holder. When LA Weekly said that Ran’s “fanbase and niche audiences are growing at a rate not seen since Tech N9ne,” they meant it. A former middle school teacher, Mega Ran (formerly Random) blends education, hip-hop and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and electric performances. Ran cut his teeth in the city of Philadelphia as a moonlighting emcee and producer, performing, freestyle rapping, producing and later engineering at a studio. After relocating to Phoenix, competing in the Scribble Jam emcee battle championships and taking an early exit, Ran almost quit before he was even started, when a creative lightning bolt struck, and a fire was lit. Various video game developer co-signs and admiration from the genre’s toughest critics have led to placements in TV, movies, university coursework, and of course, games. Ran’s music and story have been shared on stages across the world, on television (ABC/NBC News, ESPN, Portlandia, Tosh.O, WWE Wrestling) and in leading music, gaming and tech publications, print and online. Today, Mega Ran is no longer a teacher by title, but maintains a rigorous touring and recording schedule, traveling...
