“OUTTA TOWN” Music Video: Bruce Lii (Rap)
Calling Pittsburgh his home, and with a career as a truck driver, rapper Bruce Lii knows stamina, resourcefulness, determination, and improvisation. “OUTTA TOWN” sounds contemporary, but at heart, it’s a roaring old-school jam.
“I’m Coming Home” Music Video: Jim Waneka (Country)
Jim Waneka may not be a truckdriver, but in his new video “I’m Coming Home” (directed by Michael v. Greene), it’s clear he understands their stories. This country rocker tells tales of loneliness, fear, and exhaustion, alongside the sense of honor and duty and pride for a job well done.

EDM is one of the most democratizing genres of music out there, open to anyone and everyone. Case in point: Canadian DJ/EDM prodigy Maurya Sevak was only 14 when he made his first recordings. “See It” (directed by Liger Productions) is the fullest realization of the sound he’s been developing since he first sat down at a laptop.
