Combine that with his diversity in playing instruments and sharp songwriting skills, and he’s definitely one to watch.

TALK released his debut single titled “Run Away To Mars” in June after gaining a following on TikTok earlier this year. His voice and persona as an artist are so developed for this to be his first release, and I was immediately intrigued by his style.
MacKenzie Porter’s magnetic energy is fully entrancing on her songs written with their captivating hooks. It’s not hard to imagine why she has had such great success in Canada, so it’s only a matter of time before the United States catches on to her allure.
Think about a scene from one of your favorite movies with a song in it. If the scene was powerful enough, you’ll never be able to hear that song again without associating it with that scene in that movie. That’s the power music can have in film.
