Pulse 2015 Grammy Nominees

David Guetta / Bloodshy

Listen is the sixth studio album from David Guetta and features a wide range of new and established artists from Pop, Rock, R&B, and EDM. His collaboration with Sia titled “Bang My Head” was co-written by Pulse client Bloodshy. In its review of the album, Time Magazine said “Guetta practically defined EDM for the mainstream. Now, he brings new meaning with Listen and this time it’s as much a treat for the ears as for the feet.” Bloodshy just wrapped up a tour with his group Galantis and is now back in the studio writing and producing with a number of headline artists

Jez Dior – The Funeral EP

Jez Dior told Nylon Guys “I named this EP The Funeral because it is the death of what I was perceived as before.” It follows his 2013 release The Scarlett Sage Mixtape which brought to light the “grunge rap” sound that he now sits on the frontline to establish. Jez has given fans a few pieces of The Funeral over the past several months, posting music and video for songs like “Old No. 7,” “Clean Me Up,” and “Leather,” all which spent time on the Hype Machine chart

One Direction / Pulse Clients

Already #1 in more than 100 countries, Four is the new studio album from multi-platinum act One Direction. Track #6 on the album “Fool’s Gold,” was produced by Pulse client Matt Rad and the songs “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” and “No Control” were co-written by Ruth-Anne Cunningham a/k/a ROOTY. Initial reviews of the album have pointed out a maturation of the group’s sound on Four with influential press like The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph drawing comparisons to Bruce Springsteen. This is ROOTY’s first collaboration with One Direction and the second for Matt Rad who co-produced “Best Song Ever,” on the band’s previous album Midnight Memories

Black Veil Brides / Pulse Clients

In its review of the fourth studio album by Black Veil Brides, Alternative Press said it “may very well be the flashpoint to make grizzled rock fans look forward to what’s ahead, while curing younger listeners of their blank slate worldview.” Pulse clients Tommy English and Josh Moran co-wrote two songs together on the album, and English co-wrote two additional tracks. The Black Veil Brides LP is the follow up to the band’s Billboard Top 10 debut album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones. It is the second time Pulse clients have collaborated with Black Veil Brides, as Josh Abraham produced the band’s second LP Set The World on Fire, which was also mixed and engineered by Ryan Williams
