The album, Mahal from Chez Bear aka Toro y Moi is the latest project where fans get to know him better at a personal level. So what can fans expect from Mahal? Chez brings it back to the retro sounds of the 1960s and ’70s psychedelic rock influences, alongside touches of ’90s indie rock.

The South Carolina native turned Bay Area resident has been dropping hints of what to expect in this new album. He's released four singles leading up to the album release which includes, "Déjà Vu," "The Loop," "Goes By Fast," and more.

Toro y Moi tells The Chronicle that he never really shared his Filipino side and took this project as an opportunity to connect with his heritage. “I’ve never shared my Filipino side... Where I am in my life, I haven’t given myself the opportunities to rep this before. I wanted to do it right, but I wanted to do it in a fresh way.”

Olivia Rodrigo brings a four-song concert set to the Department of Motor Vehicles for this special Tiny Desk (HOME) Concert. What a perfect setting for the now GRAMMY Nominated Singer and Songwriter. Olivia hits us with a stripped-down set of good 4 u, traitor, drivers license, and deja vu.

If you're in the US and UK, Olivia is hitting the stage for her 2022 Sour Tour. Get all the details here. But for now, let's enjoy this virtual concert, thanks to NPR from the comfort of our own homes.

Olivia Rodrigo's debut album SOUR has only been out for one week, but three singles already made Top 10 in the charts. With the phenomenon of Drivers License basically taking over this year, the follow up with Deja Vu being just as catchy, and good 4 u taking us all back to the pop/rock era Olivia Rodrigo is nailing this music thing.

"...every song is so personal and close to my heart. Getting to share them with people is the most special thing I’ve ever done in my life."

OLIVIA RODRIGO ON HER DEBUT ALBUM, SOUR

According to Forbes, with Drivers License and good 4 u taking the top spot on the charts, "Olivia is now the first artist to ever start a career with her first three singles in the top 10 on the Hot 100 chart." The album, SOUR is also making history as it's "the first debut album to ever have two No. 1 singles released before the album appears on the charts itself."

SOUR takes inspiration from Rodrigo's musical role models like her most talked about friendship with Taylor Swift. There's also hints of Lorde and Florence and the Machine in her sound. According to Vulture, the "album takes its sound from "a smart juxtaposition of a decade of developments in and adjacent to popular music." For non-Gen Z listeners, it's nostalgic. It brings listeners back to their younger days of the pop/rock and 90s sound. Of course as a whole, the album is essential a breakup album, but who says you can't have fun while being sad. Olivia Rodrigo's debut album leaves listeners wanting more and excited to hear what's next for the talented artist.

We're not half way through 2021, but we can all agree that Driver's License is the biggest songs this year. Olivia Rodrigo covers Elle Magazine for their latest issue and takes charge of the narrative. She talks about all of it from the SNL spoof, to the speculation behind the song, and becoming a songwriter.

The interview took place while Olivia was filming in Salt Lake City, Utah for Season 2 of High School Musical The Musical The Series. During the interview she was asked, "What’s it like to have millions of people dissecting your love life in social media comment threads?" Olivia responded that it's every songwriter's dream.

“There’s something so powerful in being vulnerable and open...that’s what makes songwriting so special."

She goes on to talk about musical influences and how her parents allowed her to become herself. Her father is a marriage and family therapist and her mother is a teacher. Olivia found her appreciation for rock music through her mom. "My mom would be like, ‘Screaming and yelling and all that grotesque stuff, it’s emotion. It moves me. That’s the point of music.’" She expanded her taste to punk and alternative rock like Clash, Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt, and the White Stripes. Check out her singing some of those songs in Elle's latest Song Association.

Olivia looks to also do the same with her music. She wants to move people with her music. We know she's a natural performer, but she definitely had her fair share of auditions. After taking her shot in acting and going to auditions, she also took up piano. That's where a transformational happened.

She started writing songs of her own, using the piano first, and then the guitar. Calling songwriting a craft, her first song was called Superman. It was about a girl who doesn’t need a superhero to save her. Olivia continued to sharpen her songwriting skills and here we are with Driver's License and Deja Vu.

“I realized that songwriting was something that people do, and it’s a craft.”
