“Some of us get to walk through life unbothered by our past embarrassments. Others wake up in a cold sweat recounting numerous emotional punches life has thrown. We are defined by our failures and mistakes, but we are healed by the people who care enough to help us through whatever that struggle may be. This message is conveyed in Chris Jobe’s endearing new video for ‘Lonely Lives,'” Ones To Watch’s Kathryn O’Leary wrote on Thursday. “Following Jobe on his precarious New York City adventures, ‘Lonely Lives’ is a metaphor for fighting isolation and trying to let people in… [It] emulates the lonesome feeling we have when we chose to hide our emotions. Though the people in your life may try their best to get you laughing again, humiliation is never easy to combat.”Continue reading

Sydney based Singer/Songwriter Zacharria is thrilled to announce his debut Single “It’s Been So Long”. The single, which is available on iTunes, Spotify and other major online stores, has been described as one of the most promising electronic pop songs for the season 2018/2019.
Now the creative force of this song has a new face with the Thomas Godel remix. This super-up beat and epic drop has taken the song from radio to the dance floor!
Thomas is an international Gold and Platinum awarded Top 50 DJ Remixer and Music Producer, currently based in the US. Many of his remix songs have been played and supported on popular playlists worldwide.
“It’s Been So Long” was originally written when Zacharria reunited with a long-time co-writer of over a decade (they were 16 when they met). It seemed fitting to write a hooky upbeat song about how time had passed but the creative magic and excitement was still there just like when they were 16 again.
Growing up in Adelaide/Australia, Zacharria was inspired by artists like Lauryn Hill, The Weeknd and Maxwell. Writing and recording with some of the country’s platinum selling producers, his unique pop, mixed into soothing ear pleasures, has been aired on Triple J Unearthed and has been voted #1on Fresh FM as ‘Fresh new Artist’.
Fast forward to present moment and Zacharria’s coming of age story sees him pen lyrics of deep content combined with powerful melodies that will raise goose bumps and cover the entire emotional spectrum. Always collaborating with fellow creatives like DJ Remixer Thomas Godel – new music is always created whether it’s an acoustic soul jam or remixes from the U.S.
“I write songs that mean something to me – topics that have affected me in some way. In a world full of noise and distraction, I find solace in the music”
