When the boys of To Be One visit PopCrush, we know we're in for a good time. The always-charming Mikey, Madison and Jason stopped by to treat us to some impressive freestyle dance moves and even a little a capella singing -- and they gave us the scoop about one of their biggest influences (the amazing Justin Timberlake), their tour plans and the "endless opportunities" that stand before them in 2014.
Even over the phone, Trevor Dahl radiates optimism.
Positivity is a running theme in Trevor's music, where is he known by the moniker Plug in Stereo. Whether he's using songwriting to find the upside in negative situations or talking about hitting the road with Cody Simpson ("A super nice guy!"), his enthusiasm is undeniably contagious.
John Newman’s aesthetic is as distinct as his voice. A pompadour with a defiant streak of blonde sits atop his towering physique, which is sleek and tailored in all black. His olive eyes light up at the mention of Motown, which he listened to on countless nights after losing two best friends when he was only 16. From Otis Redding and James Brown to Jackson 5, Michael Jackson and Prince, Newman attributes soul music (and those artists) as his biggest influence, which is evident on his latest release, ‘Tribute.’
Ivy Levan's cat is her best friend, and she wanted her to come to life in her 'Hang Forever' video. You'll see what we mean when you watch the cute (but kind of creepy) exclusive behind-the-scenes clip above.
Cassie Scerbo's energy is so warm and enthusiastic that it's hard to believe she would play the mean girl. (The actress even put a positive spin on being stricken with a crippling case of food poisoning!) However, portraying the frenemy is the exact challenge that Cassie is excited to embrace.
Warning: You won't be able to watch BLEAUX's 'All Messed Up' video just once. Between the insanely catchy beat and playful graphics, the visual is an experience. It's a sensory overload in the best sort of way -- and that's exactly what lead singer Sohanny wants.
If it seems like you're hearing Lucas Grabeel's name everywhere, it's because you are. The 'High School Musical' star lends his talents to two TV shows, just dropped a music video and has a pretty serious to-do list for 2014.
One of the crucial elements of a sweeping cinematic romance is the movie's equally powerful soundtrack. The perfect compilation of songs reflects the ups and downs of the love story, while also appealing to viewers. No easy task, right?
