Viral this, viral that - is there a clear recipe for success when it comes to writing new music? Understanding the relationship between the makings of a song and its success on the charts is what the science of making a hit track is all about.
Certain features such as length, tempo, loudness and danceability are just some of the things UK based researchers at the University of Bristol have incorporated into what they call “the hit equation.” In all they found 23 key features that distinguish a song (see graphic.)

Glam rock comes to life with the help of the fantastic foursome from the Los Angeles-based band, Young Beautiful in a Hurry (YBH). If the name enough doesn’t make you kick start your day thinking Carpe Diem! then the genre-mixing sounds of this pop/rock group certainly will. YBH formed in 2011 under the wing of accomplished songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Brendan McCreary. Other band members include Bryan Taylor on drums, Pete Griffin on bass and Chris Norton on keyboards.
Self described as “rock, pop - in that order” YBH is not just about feel-good music. Addictively listenable, YBH’s sound is easily compared to that of a modern day Queen: infectious, life-changing and with a little bit of innovative quirk thrown in.
And if we were to just gather the facts here, their songs have been featured on everything and anything, including 90210, Battlestar Galactica, and The Walking Dead, to name a few.
Today we chat with Brendan, the mastermind behind the group as he tells us about his songwriting inspirations and what’s in store for this popular band, including their new EP!
What does it really take to get noticed by industry experts and recording stars like Bif Naked and Jully Black? Well, a fiery personality, catchy melodies and a guitar doesn’t hurt. Meet Ivy James. She’s only 16-years old, but Ivy already possesses a songwriting talent and a musical maturity well beyond her years.
With lyrics like “I didn’t need my second chance so I threw it away” from ‘Your Escape (Nate’s Song)’ and “it’s so pointless wishing on burnt out stars” from ‘Thunder’, it’s pretty clear - Ivy’s foray into the music world is not temporary. Armed with just her guitar, Ivy recorded and released her self-titled debut EP in June 2012 filled with six self-written heart-twisting acoustic melodies. In October 2012, Ivy won Best Young Songwriter at the Toronto Independent Music awards and ironic enough - wasn’t even able attend the awards show because she was under 19.
