Paris Alexa – Bloom [ALBUM]

Singer/looper/producer Paris Alexa dropped her highly anticipated new project, Bloom, this morning, and it’s everything we wanted.  The 7-track R&B/Soul experience is solid from top to bottom, putting the 19 year old Seattle songstress’ skills on full display. Acoustic and upbeat production pairs wonderfully with Paris’ powerful voice, lending to a sensual and intimate listen.  Deadhead

Princess Nokia Is Coming to PDX

For the last couple years I’ve been hearing a lot of hype around the name Princess Nokia, who’s previously performed under the monikers Wavy Spice and Destiny. And after doing my research, I’ve learned that Princess Nokia really is a bad ass bitch. In September Nokia released her stellar, 16-track mixtape 1992 Deluxe, and now she’s

That’s why I’m so proud that We Out Here Magazine is once again sponsoring GirlFest – the brainchild of the one and only Madison Sturdevant – which serves to promote the musical works of women in our region, culminating in a multi-genre concert

China Marie ft. Ray J & Jamari – Policy [VIDEO]

Portland native China Marie has been making some crazy moves down in LA, most recently linking up with LA bad boy Ray J and rapper Jamari for her latest video single, Policy.

Blossom – Black Magic Woman [VIDEO]

When it comes to soul, Blossom has it in spades. Fresh off a plane or two from a little stint on network television, the Trini-born Portland girl finally gives us the visuals for the Fountaine-produced Black Magic Woman, easily one of the sexiest songs of the Spring. The Tim Slew-directed video beautifully captures what I’ve essentially always assumed

“Go and get yours, that’s the motto for the team.” WOHM regular Karma Rivera sums up her attitude and bad bitch persona on her newest track “Good 4 U” with a sprinkle from the feminist wave. Rivera has never had a problem speaking her mind and calling out those who may have more antiquated perspectives about the
