Effortlessly blending Serena’s vocals with live instrumentation and a beat that immediately pulls you in, “Show Me The Way” is an uplifting track, breaking the chains of conformity and pursuing one’s own happiness. Serena Foster effortlessly syncopates the nuances of the lyrics throughout the track, bringing an element of some of the best elements of trap EDM and anthemic-pop.
Based out of Los Angeles, Serena Foster is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. Born to a musical family, she started singing at the age of five, and was already writing music at nine. Originally writing music within the Americana genre, Serena worked with two-time Emmy winning composer/producer Lars Deutsch from 2012 to 2015, releasing the two singles “More Than Friends” and “Silly Games.”
In 2016, Serena Foster decided to re-invent herself and her music; diving into an inward soul-search of where her music is heading, and combine her musical background with the passion and love she has of the EDM side of pop. As such, Serena released her single “Hollow” in August of 2017, to high-acclaim and amassing new followers, clamoring for more of Serena’s unique blend of Pop and EDM.
Currently, Serena is finalizing her album with producer Raz Klinghoffer, whose work can be heard on television shows such as “American Horror Story,” “Ink Master” and “The Flash” and has teamed up with Fenton Music Management.

To say 13 Crowns is a family affair would be an understatement. The band is made up of the
seven oldest siblings of the 13-member clan, ranging in age from 12 (drummer Nora) to 21 (Eve
on keyboards), with 15-year-old Abraham and 16-year-old Tihane the lead singers and
songwriters, 18-year-old Isabella on bass, along with Maikeli (14) and Heinrich (20) on guitar.
The extraordinary septet has recorded a brand-new five-song EP on independent label H&S
Records (distributed through Sony/RED), at famed L.A. studios the Record Plant and Westlake
Studios, with the notable producing team, The Audibles –Dominic “DJ Mecca” Jordan and James
“Jimmy G” Giannos (Justin Bieber, Lupe Fiasco, Keyshia Cole, Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Young
Jeezy, Trey Songz, Drake, Ciara and Rihanna)– and Justin Bieber collaborator, Jason “Poo Bear”
Boyd (Usher, 112, Chris Brown, Big Boi). Look for it to be released later this winter.
The first two singles, both written by Poo Bear, include “Grateful,” a pop-soul anthem that speaks
to family loyalty, overcoming hardships and being thankful for the lessons learned along the way,
along with the upbeat dance-floor hit, “Together We Stand,” which offers a message of unity.
Tihane has sole writing credit on both “Rise,” a piano-driven song about achieving your goals,
while “Appreciate It” tells of the journey and sacrifices they’ve made to get to this point in their
careers. “Only You,” co-written by both Tihane and Abraham, spotlights the pair’s impeccable
The 13 Crowns story sounds like a made-for-TV movie. On hearing their background, Poo Bear
exclaimed, “Where’s the camera crew? This is history in the making.”
The Polynesian-American offspring of professional musicians, their dad, Haini Wolfgramm, was
the bassist in the ‘80s Minnesota family band The Jets, who had hits like “Crush on You” (#3 on
the Billboard Hot 100), “You Got It All,” “Cross My Broken Heart” and the #1 dance smash,
“Sendin’ All My Love,” and their mom, Sarah, was a singer-songwriter for the group Blush, who
were also signed to RCA in the ‘90s.
The oldest members were determined to follow in their parents’ footsteps. “It means something
to grow up in a home where platinum records hang on the walls,” said Eve. “We were on the
road as little kids seeing our dad play shows and travel, and that’s what we wanted to do, too.”
The journey began in 2006, when their dad purchased instruments and taught them how to play.
Plenty of woodshedding, practice and live performances helped them hone their craft.
Reminiscent of the early days of the Jackson 5 – particularly the spirited vocal interplay between
Abraham and Tihane – the band’s roots are solidly in soul, R&B, hip-hop and pop, citing such
influences as groups like The Fugees, Arrested Development and The Roots, with positive
messages and an infectious upbeat feel. Other touchstones include the high-energy
performances of Bruno Mars, Beyonce’s larger-than-life persona, the island sounds of Bob
Marley and Rihanna, the upbeat theatrics of Earth, Wind & Fire and the ska-influenced No Doubt.
Young veterans, 13 Crowns recently finished a tour of 83 shows at high schools and junior highs
in three months. “We really enjoy playing for people our own age,” says Tihane. “They can relate
to our music and message.”
“We hope that everyone will recognize, under the surface, we are all royal in our own way and
each of us wears a crown,” said Abraham about the band’s name.
With collaborators like The Audibles and Poo Bear, 13 Crowns are ready to assume the pop
throne. Let the coronation begin.
