With a genuine ability to write original songs, we are excited of things to come from CILVR.

Dylan Emmet – Memory feat. Constance
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Dylan Emmet has a gut wrenching story to tell. After discovering about a two year old daughter he never know about, Emmet packed his bags and moved to New York to be a full-time dad and musician.
He has enlisted Candian singer/songwriter Constance (NÉONHÈART) on their emotional song ‘Memory’, and the special chemistry between Emmet and Constance is clear throughout the song.
Bellhouse – Like You Loved Us
Bellhouse is the Swedish pop project of Emma-Lee Andersson.
A trained truck driver who would have chosen a career in criminology if it weren’t for her music, it’s perhaps surprising that Bellhouse didn’t notice her musical talent in pop music soon.
Her gorgeously radio-ready ‘Like You Loved Us’ had us at hello and for this reason, Bellhouse is one of our Ones to Watch for 2019.
Sounds like: Allie X, Zella Day, ORKID, Harlee
Jamie N Commons – Paper Dreams
Following a move to Los Angeles to pursue his now hugely successful songwriting career, Jamie N Commons found his music took an unexpected turn towards the musical greats of the 80’s.
