To begin, let’s get one thing out of the way: Zāna is a stunning, brunette beauty. That said, this 20-year-old Berklee undergrad is much more than just a pretty face. Zāna is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who fuses Serbo-Croatian and Lebanese flavors into a unique and enticing sound she calls “gypsy-pop”. Her recent collaborations with Grammy Award winning producers Tim Mitchell (Shakira; Gloria Estefan; Bob Seger; Mandy Moore; and John Secada) and George Noriega (Shakira, Ricky Martin) have inspired her to officially launch her solo career. HIP Video Promo is very pleased to present the intoxicating clip for her debut single, “Into My Bed”.

A self-professed terrible driver, cartoon lover and blue-collar entrepreneur, Frank’s musical roots started in his hometown of Milford, Connecticut. His passion for music developed as early as the age of three, when Frank was imitating songs on his Grandmother’s piano that he heard on the television. For his new video “Easy Money” Frank takes his love of cartoons and blends it with the sultry and jazzy sounds to turn in a fun-loving and unique animated gem.
The epic sound of Longfellow is at once sweet, sad, and soaring–a cinematic rush of emotions that hits you directly from the first listen. It’s no wonder that these five lads from South London have been on a hot streak since their very first performance back in the Summer of 2013, having since performed as direct support for Keane’s 10th Anniversary Show, embarked on a tour across the UK with the legendary Hall and Oates, and received lots of love and airplay on BBC Radio. As the band continues its stateside push with two upcoming showcases at the CMJ Music Festival later this month, HIP Video Promo is very proud to present the excellent clip for their latest single, “Kiss-Hug-Make Up.”
With each passing week since the releasing “We So Fly”, Bay Area hip-hop duo Tyson onBEATS continue to gain much deserved recognition for their over-the-top talents. Today we’ve learned that they’ve risen to the top of Record Breakers with their amazing single.

John Zay aims to bring his listeners on an journey. With a message of spiritual evolution through shamanic exploration, his songs create epic climbs through lush sonic landscapes. Growing up the youngest of 4 boys at a house in the suburbs of New York City he was exposed to a wide variety of albums from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. He developed his passion for music with groups like Led Zeppelin, Yes, The Beatles, and David Bowie among others. Later his influences diversified including rockers like Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden, the soulful stylings of Seal, Curtis Mayfield and Bob Marley, Drum & Bass from Britain as well as Jazz Fusion and Ambient music. All of these influences and more through a modern slant can be heard in John Zay’s current musical stylings.
Over the years John has based his career out of spots all over the globe including Los Angeles, Hamburg, Germany, Portugal, and currently back to his NYC roots. Through his own Activesoundz studio John has had the pleasure of working with artists as diverse as Steve Madden sponsored Rock-n-Sole winner Mehuman Jonson, legendary Angelo Moore (aka Dr. Madd Vibe) of Fishbone recording and mixing his new album The Angelo Show, and even David Faustino (Bud Bundy/Married with Children) recording his new hip hop projects on Old Scratch records.
For his newest release “Shadows,” John has taken his many years of experience and dove headfirst into his early 90′s roots to deliver a hard rocking and melodic gem. Fans of artists like Living Colour and Jane’s Addiction will instantly bond with the heaviness of the music and the soaring vocal melodies.

We drank the Kool-aid and you should too. Of course, we’re not talking about the Jim Jones style Kool-Aid, but rather the infectious and refreshing sounds of one of hip-hop’s great new voices, Joshua Hatkins. Hailing from the bucolic and artistically vibrant community of Portland, OR, Hatkins has blasted onto the scene like a giant pitcher of sweet red liquid blasting through a brick wall.
With a look that is reminiscent of Welcome Back Kotter, and a sound that blends old school with new school, you might think that Joshua Hatkins brings an over the top personality to the table. But in reality Joshua is as modest and laid back as they come. A brief online bio describes it best: “With a flair for the dramatic and an ear obsessed with melody, Joshua Hatkins is ready to make his mark in music.” Nothing grandiose or boastful, just an honest description of an honest musical soul.
Speaking of honest and old school, Joshua’s new video “Kool-Aid” delivers on those very descriptions. The video literally takes place in an old empty school room and is a no frills look at Joshua as he sweats over the pretty little thing in the seat next to him. Decked out in his 70′s NBA style shorts, white socks up to his knees, and a helmet of hair that would make any man jealous, he pulls no punches and makes his case to the young girl about why he thinks he’s her man. If it’s standing on the desk, using the chalk board or the projecter, Hatkins will do whatever it takes to get her attention in his own modest way. She’s playing it cool, but don’t worry, she’s clearly charmed and it’s only a matter of time before he gets the girl!
