Before COVID-19, TeawhYB performed in Minneapolis, at Freakfest in Madison, WI, and was bound for SXSW before the nation was brought to its knees. Yet even though the world was on hold the same cannot be said for this hip-hop artist. He can be found on all social media and streaming platforms. Check him out on TikTok!
You can stream "What We Were" everywhere now, or just Spotify.
"I wanted to release a song that said what I was feeling." Pelham said. "I started writing about the thoughts in my head, and at the end of the day I thought, 'Wow fuck all of these feelings', and the rest just fell out."
Pelham releases "fuck all these feelings" on May 29th. You can presave the song on Spotify through distrokid here.
Pelham has also released songs in association with Secondhand Hounds, Still Kickin, and the #LIVIN Foundation, which you can find on his Spotify page.
Parrish released "Together" late April of 2020, a powerful song with an even more powerful message. Parrish uses this song to remind the listeners that in a world of isolation, we are all in this together. An inspiring message, accompanied by strong vocals, warm instrumentation, and musicality similar to NEEDTOBREATHE, and Ed Sheeran.
Be sure to check out the official music video for "Together" when it drops, and add it to your favorite folk, Spotify playlist.
DeMarco, originally from Iowa, has been largely welcomed by the Minneapolis community. From frequenting open mics, to playing at almost every local venue we can think of, he has made an impact, as well as a name for himself, and is definitely on the rise in the scene.
Once the scene is opened back up, and shows start again, be sure to attend one of Admiral Fox's shows to catch their electrifying performance.
"Nowhere is Safe" is available on all streaming platforms, including Spotify.
Our First Showcase.
We had our first ever showcase at the beginning of April. In a word, it went swimmingly. The room was packed, all the artists were on point, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their selves. Twin Cities Media came out to the show and wrote a lovely article about it, as well as took some amazing photos.
We have another showcase this month, it's actually in 4 days! We have Molly Conrad, Mike Saker, Ryan McDonald, and Dahlia Jones coming to perform. So cancel your plans! Unless your plans are to come to the Showcase, then don't cancel... please come.
If you are an artist, and you are interested in playing the showcase, you should come through! We'd love to meet you!

What is Meteor Base Doing?
We have officially opened up our studio to the public. We have been recording several new artists, and working with many more on marketing and booking. It has been a good month for music in this town. We are excited to continue making music. If you are interested in recording with us, fill out our new consult form and we will be in touch shortly.
As usual we have our open mic and showcase. Every Friday and First Monday of the month.
A little Desk Contest
Happy Easter everyone! With the month of March also being the submission time for NPR's tiny desk concert contest, we got to see many of Minnesota's local artists pull out all the stops in an attempt to showcase what it is about their music that is truly special.
We've compiled a list of some of our favorite videos, in no particular order, that we saw going around the interwebs. Don't worry, no Hobo Johnson.

What is Meteor Base up to?
Meteor Base helped new local band "Back to Rapture" with their debut album "Episode I". Soon to be available on Spotify, and iTunes! This EDM, Synthwave, Rap Duo is something to behold. It's fun, exciting, thought provoking, and filled with bangers.
Why, Hello There!
You may be wondering what the point of this blog is for? It is mainly to update you all on not only what Meteor Base is doing as a company, but to give you all information about the music scene here in this lovely city.
This first month I'll mainly be talking about the plans for this blog, telling you about some cool artists to check out, let you all know about the show calendar, and what the company is up to.
We want to inform you all of the cool things happening in this city. I'm sure there are hundreds of places to find out the P!nk is playing the Armory, or Ed Sheeran is gonna be here in October, but what about the amazingly talented singer that's playing down the street? That's what we are here for.

Oh, yeah about that show calendar. Have you ever wanted to go out one night, but didn't want to spend too much money, or go see live music, but wanted to also support the local scene? Have you ever wanted to do that but didn't know where to go? Yeah, same.
So that's where this calendar comes into place. The idea behind it is local artists submit their shows, they get put on the calendar, and then it's all in one place! You'll be able to find all the local shows you'd need. As well as some other events like the open mic nights at New Bohemia in NE... that is put on by Meteor Base....

Meteor Base Showcase - First Monday of every month.
Open Mic Nights - Tuesdays at moto-i and Fridays at New Bohemia in NE.

What is Meteor Base Doing?
In a word: Lots.
We are making records, booking, hosting weekly open mics, hosting a monthly showcase, working on new content to release, and now this monthly blog! So possibly too much.
We are working with some new bands, artists, and other companies to put some things out. We are excited to show you all this amazing talent that we have managed to capture.
If you are interested in being involved in someway, send us an email, come to one of our events, say hi! We are always open, welcoming, and willing to listen. We can help musicians or artists put their ducks in a row, and then get them more ducks.
If you all wanted to share this post with your friends, check out our socials, and stay tuned, that would help immensely! There is so much more to come.
