NOONIEVSEVERYBODY - LOYALTY
(A&R COORDINATOR)

LVRN RADIO - SiriusXM THE HEAT
(Producer)

NoonieVsEverbody made his introduction to the masses through his appearance on last year's LVRN Cypher with 6LACK, Westside Boogie, and others.

 

At the time, the 17-year-old Cleveland-based rapper wasn't well-known among the hip-hop community. Love Renaissance is known for strong artist development though and it looks like it's time to officially roll out Noonie's first single, "Loyalty."

 

Singing straight from the heart, Noonie's debut single deals largely with the hardship that the teenager has needed to overcome in his young life, including the incarceration of his father, the dangers of urban Cleveland, and his perpetual suspensions from school. 

Love Renaissance continues to move the culture, announcing the launch of Love Renaissance Radio on Sirius XM’s The Heat. The Atlanta-based independent record label, management, and multi-media company will host their show on Wednesdays at 10pm ET.

The radio show will be hosted by LVRN Co-founder/Head of A&R Justice Baiden, producer/DJ/cultural curator Kitty Ca$h and music executive Amber Grimes.

Engineered, Produced  by LVRN's own, Rehan Manickam, the show has featured special guests Westside Boogie, Reason (TDE) and many more .

ALEX VAUGHN - MIRAGE (A&R COORDINATOR)

After signing with LVRN last October, Maryland native Alex Vaughn makes her official introduction with her debut single “Mirage.”On the pensive track, Vaughn comes to her senses after realizing the man she has been with was never good for her. Instead, she was falling in love with a fantasy. 

“Damn near perfect / Beautiful you are / Or is it just a mirage? / You’ve got me in the desert dry / But seeing waterfalls / Someone save me / I’m on the verge of falling,” Vaughn sings on the reflective tune. She later tells

herself, “Stop hallucinating over lame ass niggas.” 

 

Vaughn also mentioned that “Mirage” is the song that helped her get a deal with LVRN/Interscope Records. “It’s wild to know that my most vulnerable moments [are] what really make people really connect. [To be honest], I would’ve never called this one but I’m so happy we’re here. Don’t hoard your ideas! Share them [with] the world!”

NORTH AVE JAX - TRUST NOBODY (Mastering Engineer)

North Ave Jax chose a much louder path. The Burlington native took the unexpected route personally and creatively, threading deft verbal dexterity through unpredictable soundscapes punctuated by punk rock spirit, pop ambition, and even a twist of R&B. After catching the attention of LVRN Records and signing to the label, he introduces a scorching signature style on a series of 2021 singles and more to come.

Now, he introduces himself with the debut single “Trust Nobody.” On the track, a glassy guitar riff glistens above skittering 808s. However, he continues to cut deep with more music to come, infusing raw emotion into magnetic melodies and bringing a Burlington, VT story worldwide.
