If you’re anything like me and can’t get enough good music in your life, you have to tune in to NBC’s Song Land which premiers each Tuesday night.
Song Land is where undiscovered songwriters pitch their original creations to superstar recording artists and a panel of chart-topping music producers in hopes of creating the artists’ next megahits. The star artists — including Jonas Brothers, John Legend, Macklemore, Kelsea Ballerini, will.i.am, Old Dominion, OneRepublic, Meghan Trainor, Aloe Blacc, Leona Lewis and Charlie Puth — each choose three songwriters to take their favorite ideas to the next level.
Pairing each songwriter with one of the three producers — including three-time Grammy winner Ryan Tedder; Grammy-nominatee Ester Dean, songwriter of hits for Rihanna and Katy Perry; and Grammy-winning country music icon with 38 No. 1 records Shane McAnally — the songwriters tailor and evolve their songs to perfectly fit the artists, who will choose one winning song to record and release worldwide.
On the highly anticipated premiere released on May 28, 2019, Louisiana native and internationally charting soul singer Ollie Gabriel was introduced to the American people on the new NBC series pitching an original song to John Legend.
Ollie has performed around the world, televised to millions and to concert audiences of 40,000+ fans. Since his overseas success in 2017, Ollie has toured the world and married his longtime girlfriend who inspired the song he performed on NBC’s Songland.
Take a look at the new video of Ollie’s song “Something New” below.
