A Conversation with HappyBirthdayCalvin • One Of Chicago’s Brightest Young Acts

HappyBirthdayCalvin is a kid out of Chicago who has been making some major noise in the music community, but especially here in the city, so of course I had to bring him through the office for a brand new interview for the site! HappyBirthdayCalvin will end up being one of the leaders in the Chicago music scene within the next few years, and I know that’s a bold statement for someone who just graduated high school, but trust me when I say he is a good person to the core but even more importantly he is musically inclined. Calvin’s record “No Friends” has been going crazy for a minute now, playing on radios all over the country, and not to mention that he just got Chicago legend G-Herbo on the remix of the track. Learn a thing or two about Calvin by reading this brand new interview below and don’t forget to stream his record below while you read, & also keep an eye out for his upcoming music releases!

Buttaflies and Brownies – [Michael Anthony] ft. [Orlando Vaughn]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you’re looking for the next musical hotspot to pay attention to, then there’s no better city than St. Louis. Filled with talent, STL possesses a seemingly endless supply of talent, a lot of which has landed on Lyrical Lemonade at some point or another, and today, the list of potential stars is about to get even longer as we present Michael Anthony and his stellar new release, “Buttaflies and Brownies,” alongside Orlando Vaughn. Originally featured in @gregisonfire‘s latest Greg Put Me On playlist, the refreshing splash of soul that this song offers is what locked my ears in after just one listen. Not only are Anthony’s vocals the perfect complement for the sun-soaked instrumental, but the fluctuations in pitch and flow that this offering takes on (from both Anthony and Vaughn) were equally as impressive in creating such a vivid sonic atmosphere on “Buttaflies and Brownies”. Needless to say, I’ll be throwing this one into heavy rotation for the weeks to come, and you should do the same. Stream “Buttaflies and Brownies” at the link provided below! Produced by vaughnvibes
