Lewis Capaldi

Getting through breakups is tough, but who better to help you navigate dating apps than the man who literally partnered (and then was kicked off of) with TInder? We’re talking about the hilarious Lewis Capaldi who helped McCabe revamp his dating profiles, albeit in a more “murdery” sounding way. Lewis stopped by the studio to talk to afternoon hosts McCabe and Jenny about paying a mortgage on a house he hates, releasing music with a new sound after the pandemic, and working with his bestie/nemesis Niall Horan. Lewis has a news album coming out next year, but until then you can enjoy his new single “Forget Me” right here on the Mix. Listen to McCabe and Jenny V talk about all this and more with Lewis Capaldi on the Mix New Music Club!

Charlotte Sands

Sometimes someone makes a completely unrelated decision that changes your whole life. For Charlotte Sands, that was Harry Styles’s decision to wear a dress on the cover of Vogue. Charlotte wrote a song about it and, like a lot of music these days, it blew up on the internet. Charlotte sat down with Mix Afternoon host Jenny V to talk about being the queen of manifesting, how her Bonnaroo set getting cancelled was a devastating blow turned opportunity, and her Riot Fest set. Charlotte has new music coming out in December and a new music video coming out for “Tantrum.” Listen to Jenny talk about all this and more with Charlotte Sands on the Mix New Music Club!

Ingrid Andress

She’s been compared to Kacey Musgraves but Ingrid Andress doesn’t believe that she fits into just one genre. Her focus? Making music that she actually likes! Ingrid sat down with Mix New Music Club Podcast hosts Jenny V and Dash to dish on touring with Kieth Urban, preferring to tour by bus instead of plane (we’re not sure if anybody has ever said that before), and how releasing her album during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic was a small blessing in disguise. Ingrid’s new album “Good Person” released this past August and we can’t wait to see what she makes next! Listen to Jenny and Dash talk about all this and more with Ingrid Andress on the Mix New Music Club!

Lauren Spencer Smith

Up and coming superstar Lauren Spencer Smith got her start on American Idol, then her music blew up on TikTok, and then Jimmy Fallon had her on his internationally popular TV show. Now comes her biggest challenge yet…being interviewed by McCabe and Jenny! Lauren sat down with our afternoon hosts to talk about how being on American Idol helped her discover her weaknesses, how TikTok has changed the way she thinks about songwriting, and diving into Jimmy Fallon’s DMs after he was the first person to share her new song on Instagram. Lauren’s new album will come out later this year, but until then you should check out her singles “Fingers Crossed” and “Narcissist.” Listen to McCabe and Jenny talk about all this and more with Lauren Spencer Smith on the Mix New Music Club!
