The inspiration for "Demons" initially came from a rough point in her life when she was being bullied in high school and college. Then last year, she re-analyzed the lyrics and the make up of the song to match her style now. She rewrote the song, but kept the essence of it to represent that experience from the past. LESHA shared that giving into your inner demons can really change a person and people can only see a false reflection of yourself only if you allow it to happen.

If you're excited for "Demons" there's more in store as LESHA looks to release her album this August!

The Careless Music family is growing. New signees, Liza Soberano and Issa Pressman are looking to venture into a new part of their careers. The independent record label is a force of nature in fostering fresh unknown talent from all over the Philippines, but also encourages artists to step into the unknown and encourage new journeys.

Liza Soberano said she is looking forward to working with the record label known for taking care of “young talent.” The young actress says, “The fact that they work with young creatives -- I’m currently 24 -- so it’s very exciting and encouraging to see a lot of people pursuing their dreams and passion at a very young age in a way that they wanna do it.” She's at a turning point in her career where she'd like to have more control over the projects she does and meeting James Reid's team boosted her confidence in trying new things. “I also wanted to work with people my age to be honest … and when I met James and his team it really made me even more excited to work with because their team is so young, so creative and they are so fearless to take risks and try to chase after things that we would think is impossible,” she added.
