Artemis Raven – Champagne Vs Zodiacs

Artemis Raven grows fan-base with new single
‘Champagne Vs. Zodiacs’

MIAMI, FL – Artemis Raven is a new musician out of Miami whose music is for a more mature, adult audience. This is never more on display than with her new single “Champagne Vs. Zodiacs,” which dropped on April 13. It’s a song that tells the tale of a night out on the town and the multiple encounters she has with a wide variety of people – people who represent the 12 Zodiac personalities – after having had too much to drink of champagne.

“It’s more of an explicit song as it talks about the romance side of the zodiac,” Artemis said. “It’s more chill and definitely R&B, but it’s one of those songs that’s for a more mature-minded audience. Age doesn’t make you mature, your mind does, and when people listen to my music they’re going to be listening to very adult content. I do have women empowerment songs, but for the most part when people hear my stuff it’s going to make them think from a certain mindset that is definitely more mature.”

Artemis Raven adopted her professional name in 2003 and officially registered it in 2012. She’s a performing artist who extends her sound beyond R&B and pop into soul, rock and even country. As a child, her love for music started early when legends like Michael and Janet Jackson showed her a world of performance that left its mark on her mind forever thereafter. She credits them for giving her the edge to be a stage performer and not letting the stage do the performing for her.

In elementary school she would perform dance moves and entertain her peers by freestyling at the bus stop or in the cafeteria. She soon became known as “Little Michael Jackson” because of the flawless dance moves she’d mimic, and by the time she reached high school she knew that music was her greatest life’s passion. By college she was fully pursuing music. She became a part of the Music Entertainment Industry Student Association and tried her hand at acting. She portrayed MC Lyte in a musical tribute stage play at Miami-Dade College. She got her first taste at performing for a live stage audience by singing Mary J. Blige’s “No Drama,” which led to an encore. She also volunteered in fashion shows and took up journalism as a staff writer for the college’s newspaper. All of this evolved into a full-fledged career in music when in 2003 she became a writer and singer with an indie label called 3 rd Entertainment. She recorded one song and co-wrote with other artists. But in 2004 she chose to put music on the back burner as she dedicated herself to being a mother.

Over the past 10 years Artemis has attempted to get back into music. She’s auditioned for American Idol on two occasions, and once for the American version of X Factor. In 2010 she began doing demos and writing music again, with her first single “Crazy Dayz Crazy Timez” gaining her some attention from fans.

In 2012, Artemis linked up with a pop-hip/hop Duo by the name RAPtor Ent. This musical collaboration led to a Grammy Nomination in 2015 for a song entitled "Rockin 2 Da Moonlight&quot which she constructed for herself, but was forwarded to the group for a more universal appeal and sound.

Artemis has slowly ramped up her success over the past decade, and is excited to see how her new single can get her name and music in front of an even larger fan-base.

OG The Story – Evolution By Any Means (EP)

Published

og the story ebam ep cover art (1)

Introducing Irish Nigerian rap artist and musician OG The Story with his brand new solo EP titled Evolution By Any Means. Raised in Lagos and based in Dublin, OG The Story is striving to live up to the meaning of his full name Olusegun Gbadebo, which translates to “The Lord conquers, bring the crown” in Yoruba, which is why, whether it is through the music on this new project, or as a diversity and inclusion lead in his corporate world, or actively tackling youth violence in his community, he is passionate about attaining his highest potential and helping others do the same.

Perhaps best known as one of the founding members of Dublin hip hop and afrobeats collective Millaz, who rose to prominence a decade ago and amassed a cult following across Ireland, OG The Story stepped away from the group and the music scene altogether a few years ago, to pursue new life experiences that took him across the world to the Middle East and Africa. Fast forward to 2020 and the Irish Nigerian native is back home in Dublin with new insights, renewed passion, a sharper edge, and his brand new record Evolution By Any Means.

Revered for his captivating storytelling, excellent wordplay, infectious flow, and assured cadence, OG The Story’s music takes inspiration from hip hop legends such as Rakim and Notorious BIG, with the likes of Bob Marley and Fela Anikulapo Kuti influencing the essence and messaging behind his new work, which wants to carry the listener through insightful and emotive journeys in ways that will inspire them. His new project Evolution By Any Means speaks directly to our current times, driven by themes such as heritage, identity, diversity, and self-love.

Speaking about the inspiration behind his Evolution By Any Means EP, OG The Story says, “This project is about self-expression and striving to be the best version of myself, which has led me to explore key themes including identity, consciousness, and self-love. This EP is telling the story of my journey to achieve my highest potential, while delving into a variety of life experiences with the insights and lessons gained from them. The relationship between the individual and community is also touched on in parallel to the key themes of the project, with the hope to inspire others to be their best selves”.
