Lovelytheband are on the move with a rather strong entry. “Sail Away” (HappyAccident/The Orchard) is the one that is getting lots of attention at the format.

How great it is to see recording artist Mimi Webb get the recognition that she truly deserves. “Red Flags” (Epic) is the song that is making all of this possible at this point in time and radio is all over this one big time. She’s really latched on to something very special with this offering […]
AJR is getting raves and support from many of our music and program directors for the latest offering. “World’s Smallest Violin” (AJR Productions/BMG) that marks one of their strangest song titles of the year appears to be a real favorite from this band that is fast becoming the real deal in pop radio.
