Meet Alec Chambers, the virtuosic 19-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who could understand chord charts well before he could operate a motor vehicle. Chambers recently released his much-anticipated first single “Whole Again.” Below is our exclusive interview with Alec!

Hi Alec, it’s nice to talk to you how are you doing?
Heyyyyyyy. I’m doing great! working on a lot of cool things. Excited that the EP is finally out. 🙂
What was the process to get your new ep all together?
I’ve been writing for this EP for about 2 years. After gathering about 40 or so songs, my manager and I sat down and chose the 4 that we thought really represented who I want to be as an artist. The kind of music I want to make. We recorded the EP in Brooklyn with Rob Guariglia. It was 8 hours days, 4 days a week for about 2 months straight. it was awesome.
How has the reaction of your EP been? Is it what you expect or better?
It’s been really great. It was exactly what I expected. A lot of people really don’t know who I am yet, but this record definitely allowed me to get to the next stage of my career. Really pleased with the response.
We see you have a few shows coming up, what are you looking forward to the most?
I’m looking forward to playing out, and getting myself in front of people and singing from my heart.
Have you had any weird or odd fan experiences?
Haha. Uh. No
Is there one thing that you have to bring with you when going away for shows? 
Not really. Just my guitar. I need that….
Being that you just released your EP can we expect an album next?
Probably another EP! I have no plans to record one yet, but I’m hoping soon.
What are the next things you will be working on being that you just finished your EP?
Playing more shows, working to get my music heard, writing. Everything. Everything that I was still doing before the ep was out…. 🙂
Thanks so much Alec for taking the time to chat with TeenInfoNet!

T The EP includes the Billboard Dance Chart hit “Aware Alive Awake”, her own rendition of Pharrell’s Grammy Award-Winning single “Happy”, and her current single “Cold Blooded” – inspired by “a personal journey that [she] had to go through to get where [she] is today.”

Night Riots Premiere “Break” Vignette With ‘BULLETT’ Magazine, Debuts At #17 On Billboard Chart!

night riots

After climbing their way to No. 5 on SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown with single “Contagious,” and debuting at No.17 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart for their EP “Howl(released Jan. 20th via Sumerian Records), Night Riots have released an eerie vignette for new song, “Break” – today on BULLETT Magazine. Watch the vignette, here: http://bit.ly/BullettBreak.

About the new vignette for “Break,” Night Riots frontman Travis Hawley explains, “‘Break’ conjures images of timeless youthful love.” He continues, “We represented this idea by using antique film cuts of lovers kissing. At one point these clips were considered risqué and audacious. But looking back on them from our modern perspective, they seem so romantic in their confident and daring innocence.”

With praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Earmilk, MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, KROQ, All Things Go, NYLON, AV Club and Filter, and sharing recent bills with bands including Cage The Elephant, Walk The Moon, Meg Myers, OK Go, K.Flay, Step Rockets, The Mowgli’s, Wild Cub and Youngblood Hawk, NIGHT RIOTS is setting the alternative underworld ablaze as swift and smartly as their brooding, melody rich and timeless songs have already endeared them to critics. The Southern California based band has a unique melodic sensibility – delivering transcendent pop music that is both modern and timeless; as well as both sinister and romantic, with the downbeat flare of new wave, ’80s movie soundtracks. 

Produced by Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk, Waaves, Mars), “Howl” was released on January 20th via Sumerian Records. Stream “Howl” in its entirety over on EARMILK  and Spotify. Purchase the EP on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/1wGx0NT.

Night Riots is Travis Hawley (Lead Vocals/Synth), Nick Fotinakes (Guitar), Matt DePauw (Guitar), Mikel Van Kranenburg (Bass) and Rico Rodriguez (Drums). For more info, please visit: http://www.nightriots.com/.
