Watch for the official video to premiere soon.
As announced earlier this week in Billboard, Carpenter has signed to Capitol Records. In this interview, the 20-year-old self-taught musician talks about how his social media success paved the way for him to move from Shreveport, Louisiana to Los Angeles to pursue his musical ambitions. Carpenter co-founded the MAGCON tour, which took him and other social media influencers across the U.S. to meet their fans. He has more than 7.5 million followers across his socials.
“Where I’m from, pursuing music is much more difficult than it is in a lot of other places,” says Aaron Carpenter. “For a long time, I kept my music secret from everyone, but at some point, I realized I had to just go for it.”
In 2015, he shared a video in which he performed a cover of Jason Mrazs ‘I’m Yours’ on ukulele. From there, Carpenter continued posting covers, with each video spotlighting the powerful vocal presence he’d honed partly by singing in the church choir and in school musicals. The videos received an overwhelmingly positive response, but Carpenter wanted to push much further with his music. “I didn’t want to get attention for singing other people’s songs” he explains. “I wanted to share my own songs and make it something really personal.”
Soon after that realization, Carpenter packed up and moved to L.A., where he immersed himself in writing songs and learning guitar and piano. After a chance meeting at a party, Carpenter connected with his managers, who were impressed by his demos and scheduled him for a songwriting session. Collaborating with other writers and producers helped him refine his musical vision, shaping an immensely catchy R&B-pop sound informed by his lifelong appreciation of artists like Marvin Gaye and Al Green.
“I love how some music can just take you right back to a specific moment in your life and bring up all these really happy memories that wouldn’t come up otherwise,” he says. “I’d love to do that for other people with my music: to take them to a place where nothing else matters in the world, and they can just have a good time.”

Maps Glover closed his month long residency at the A Creative DC: Brookland studio space with a performance art piece titled “Don’t Talk to the Artist While in Practice” and an open house for fellow artists and supporters. Glover is a DMV local artist that went to school at the Delaware College of Art and Design. He creates work inspired by human behavior and observation. He visualizes how time affects that behavior and how observation of that behavior alters the viewers perspective. Performances is where he best express himself, in this medium all of the ideas he has about how we interact with our emotions and make decisions as humans comes to life.
During the residency he created 27 art pieces centered on police brutality, media, and the speed of life. In the middle of the studio stands an installation, he calls an altar, created for a previous performance series that took place at transformer dc. The installation includes paper airplanes folded, unfolded, and refolded by hand that represent the 987 African Americans killed by police brutality this year.
The checker board pattern is a new theme in the work and represents the quickness of life. These pieces touch on the theme of age due to Glover turning 27 this year. He uses visuals of news and media in a couple already sold paintings that show news personalities discussing people’s lives and ultimately misrepresenting them. Police brutality and black life are a subject matter repeatedly examined by Glover and is present throughout all of his work.

EDEN GARDENS. La Metamorphose Spring/Summer 2019.
In the gardens of La Métamorphose, the woman is certainly a flower that hatches, but this woman is conquering in her femininity, delicate in its strength, it is a multi-faceted woman, muse, but also leader.
Pastels emphasize hatching, whites purity and light. The precision of the cuts, the determination.
Pale roses of love that crown your head,
Fade every summer?
Their stems will bend to the rising wind.
Rose petals have fallen in the path.
O Belle, pick them, since our dream flowers
Will fade tomorrow!
Put them in a cup and all closed doors,
Alanguis and cruel, thinking of the dead days,
We will see the agony of roses
Raves of perfumes.
The big garden is defaced, my egoist,
Day butterflies to other flowers have fled,
And only from now on will come to the sad garden
And the flowers will die in the profane chamber.
Our roses alternately shed their pain.
Beautiful, sob a little … Every flower that fades,
It is a love that dies!
Guillaume Apollinaire, There is, “Picking”, posthumous publication, 1925.
Maria Aristidou’s Spring/Summer 2019 “Symplexis” collection.
You don’t always know what ‘s hidden behind a closed door, yet even when you think you do, you always wonder if you are right. A closed door is, more often than not, a mystery to all of us. We are humans and curiosity is, whether we like it or not, a human imperfection. And when that door has an arch and a keystone, intertwining to form a coherent symplexis, it becomes a mystical and wondrous gate, behind which imagination can run wild!
So, open it. If you dare.
Maria Aristidou’s Spring/Summer 2019 knit couture collection was quite the challenge.Inspiration for the pattern came from a single vintage arched door found during a walk inside the old city walls of Nicosia. The simplicity of the door’s facade, together with the complexity of the engineering behind it, gave rise to a series of design trials that lead to this fine timeless pattern for the fabrics of SS 2019 collection. Hand embroidery embellishments on a colorful palet of luxurious knit fabrics made by the designer, capture the beauty and the essence of a woman. Unexpected cuts on timeless classic designs with modern details are the signature of the designer’s Spring/Summer 2019 “Symplexis” collection.
In 2015 Maria Aristidou introduced her first A/W 2015 Limited Knit Scarf Collection, a beginning of a new concept in her designs. The magic of knitwear inspired her to first explore and then create, using luxurious threads and elaborate techniques, various knit patterns. The craftsmanship of detailed hand embroideries adds to the uniqueness of Maria Aristidou’s fabric collections for the couture evening and accessories. The process of fabric production for each collection starts from the very beginning. Yarns such as wool, viscose, lurex, cotton, silk and velvet (depending on the season the designer works on) are ordered from Paris and Italy. Then, a series of patterns, first designed on paper, are passed on to the computer knit programmer to be then processed by the programs set for the knitting machines. What follows is a series of testings to establish which yarn will be used on which machine and for which pattern, how thick or thin the fabric will be, colour sampling combinations, hand-embroidery design testing, quality and durability checks etc. The only fabric that is actually bought, and not produced by the designer, is the lining needed for each garment.
Once the desired patterns are developed, and the fabric samples are finalised and tested, the fabric production takes place. That is, cutting and sewing (with finishings done with knit trimming on each piece of the garment) along with hand embroidery.
All production takes place in Cyprus.
Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Artist Logic, who performed “One Day” with Ryan Tedder on The Ellen Show, presents chapter four of his Young Sinatra saga with the release of YSIV via Def Jam Recordings/Visionary Music Group.
“One Day,” the first advance single from YSIV, with over 46 million streams worldwide, was followed in early September by “Everybody Dies.” YSIV will be Logic’s last physical album, available for a limited time here.
YSIV – with features by Wu-Tang Clan, Jaden Smith, Hailee Steinfeld and others (see track listing below) – is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Everybody, Logic’s breakout third album (released May 2017), which debuted at #1 Soundscan.
Everybody’s RIAA 5x-platinum single “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring fellow Def Jam artist Alessia Cara and Khalid, catapulted Logic to worldwide acclaim for bringing mental health and suicide prevention awareness to the critical conversation. The song earned Logic two Grammy® Award nominations – including the prestigious Song Of The Year – and a triumphant closing performance at the 2018 Grammy® Award.
In the interim, Logic dropped his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape, which rocketed to a #1 album chart debut in March 2018. BTII spun off the RIAA gold Top 10 singles “44 More” and “Everyday” (featuring Philadelphia DJ-producer Marshmello), and also boasted features from A-list heavies 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa.
In June 2018, Logic kicked off a massive 33-city North American summer amphitheater and arena tour of the U.S. and Canada, including such prestigious venues as New York’s Madison Square Garden, PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver, and the Forum in Los Angeles.
