NYC & London

my very good friends in Crash The Party just released their cover video to One Direction’s latest single “Best Song Ever.” Now not only does their cover sound amazing, but I filmed the videos that their guitarist and other singer Chris put together to make this epic video. So I may be a little bias when I say this video is amazing, but it truly is and everybody should check it out.

If you love this cover, you can download it FOR FREE by click HERE.

Fall Out Boy has released a music video for their song “Alone Together” which is the fourth music video instalment in the “Save Rock and Roll: Young Blood Chronicles”. By the rate these music videos are coming out, I have a feeling each song off the album is going to be chronicled in music video form. The videos keep getting darker but it keeps me engaged and wanting to know what is going to happen to Fall Out Boy.

Jodi Good is an up and coming singer/song writer. If you haven’t heard of her yet, you’re sincerely missing out. Keep reading below to read our interview with her and find out lots about her and her music!
But before you check out our interview with her, check out her music and become a fan. 





L.I.F.E. Press: Tell us a little bit about yourself.








Jodi Good: Hey! I’m a 23 year old singer/songwriter from NYC. I am an animal lover, a child at heart, and a total flirt! I feel like I’m applying for a dating site! haha 

LP: When did you decide to pursue singing professionally?
JG: I decided to sing when I was around 19 years old…when I realized I literally couldn’t do anything else…can’t work a cash register…can’t cut hair…
LP: Who are your main musical inspirations?
JG: This is always a tricky question for me to answer because I’ve always been most inspired by people’s words, conversations, and lives. That being said, I STRIVE to make an album that helps/impacts people the way P!NK’s “Misundaztood” and Christina Aguileras’s “Stripped” did for me.
LP: I saw on your Facebook that one of your songs was recently played on project anti bullying radio, how did you get involved with project anti bully? 
JG: Project Anti Bully actually reached out to me after I retweeted them! How lucky??
LP: What made you want to get involved in that particular anti bullying campaign? 
JG: Having been bullied, I know what it can do to your spirit. There is still a residue of pain left on my heart from those mean kids in elementary school. We can’t let them win! It is scary to think of all the potential that is crushed by bullies - it has to stop.











LP: Do you plan on using your music as a way to help get involved in other causes? JG: Absolutely. I want my music to form a platform that I can use to help others. 










LP: You recently started doing music mondays, what made you want to do that? 










JG: I think consistency is important. If you put out enough videos, people will have to look at atleast one.










LP: Are you ever worried that you will get fans solely from your cover videos who will only want to hear your covers and not your original songs as well? 










JG: That thought has crossed my mind, but I think covers will open the door for people to hear my original songs. If they don’t like my original stuff, they can just be fans of my covers! I think it is more important to have true fans than A LOT of fans. Everyone has different tastes and I appreciate every fan even if they don’t like everything I do. 










LP: Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
JG: I wish I had a clue! Life can take so many different directions in just a few months time. In five years, I HOPE that I can modestly support myself by singing and songwriting and that I have the ability to give back.



LP: Anything else you’d like to add? 
JG: It is so important for me to spread my messages of acceptance and love. If I can better even just one person’s life, my life has not been wasted.

// WARPED TOUR!//

The Vans Warped Tour is about to kick off for it’s 18th year running. The tour starts on June 15th in Seattle, Washington. Personally I was so excited by how diverse the line up is this year. The line up consists of bands I started listening to when I first attended Warped Tour in 2006 and bands that have just recently starting making head way in the music scene. Even Charlie Simpson from the UK pop band Busted (and also Fighstar…. but Busted were my jam back in the day) is going on Warped Tour this Summer. If you’re going to any of the dates he’s on, you definitely have to check him out. And if you’re attending the Long Island date, like I am, you’ll be sure to see me at his set freaking out like it’s 2003 all over again. That’s my favourite thing about Warped Tour, how old favourites and new favourites are performing within minutes of each other, or even preforming 20 feet apart from each other. Hopefully you all already have you Warped Tour tickets, as the line up has been announced for quite some time. But if you don’t you can click RIGHT HERE and get yourself a ticket to The Warped Tour! I know the closer it gets to starting the more anxious I get for it to be my date to go already. How are you guys preparing for this summer’s Warped Tour!?

L.I.F.E. Press, pronounced Life Press, stands for Listen It Fixes Everything Press. Because music = life and when you listen to music it has the power to fix everything, at least temporarily. This is a website that brings the scene right to your bedroom. We photograph shows, do interviews with bands, write reviews of shows/albums/music videos etc., do artist spot-lights and may even have your favorite musician as a guest writer. Keep your eyes peeled because everything we're doing you won't want to miss out on. We're not a music news site, we're a place to come to, to see great photos, watch/listen/read amazing interviews, read some well written reviews and find out about artists you probably never would've given a chance. Listening to music can really fix everything, even if it temporarily fixes it all, it is the fix you need. This is the place to come to get your fix.
