HipHop, Words, Creativity, Unity and the DIY Mentality are all part of the George Ellett p.k.a. Good.To.Go lifestyle. Having played in different bands over the years ranging from funk, to reggae, with Punk Rock at its core, has given Good.To.Go a unique style and original voice that stands out on each track. Now on the brink of channeling his voice and message through the music of HipHop, Good.To.Go wants to push boundaries further while spreading good vibes and further thinking with meaningful lyrics and charismatic shows.
Writing songs that deal with every color and nuance of life, The Songery aims to push mental boundaries through genre-bending pop and theatrics. The concepts, ideas, and messages behind the songs are more important than the songs themselves and every move, every sound, every visual is developed with care and intent in a final attempt to peel back the mask that humanity can so easily wear.
When asked why one person would decide to call herself “The Songery” she replies, “The Songery is more than a persona. It is a call to arms, a spearhead signaling for spiritual awakening, symbolic of an ideology that the world seems to be lacking severely and yet constantly surrounds us. For this reason, my project is grounded in story-line, integrity, concept, and character. I feel very secondary- as if I am the one driving the car, and it’s my car… but I am not the car. The Songery is a name I feel very intertwined with, I feel it so perfectly encapsulates the whimsical world I strive to show people. I’m not quite there yet. I’m still developing, completely on my own, so it is a process… but I’ll get there.”
-I also feel the name gives me freedom to play with all these abstracts and to adopt such a wide range of tones and subject matter. Some very light, some very dark, ranging substantially in color yet all unified within this world. I have been writing songs and performing since I was a little girl, and never really had the belief that I could or should be trying to make a career out of it… until The Songery came along. It sparked a purpose within me. I believe in The Songery with such passion that I want to keep fighting until I see it realized. The Songery comes with power to me. It is more than me. It is bigger than me. If I forfeited the name, the music would not feel the same. Nothing would feel the same. It would not be the same.
The Songery loves Jonsi, Sigur Ros, Regina Spektor, Danny Elfman, Queen, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Beethoven, all the random hits of the 80s, and pretty much any film score.

Rapper and producer Rit$y is ready to make waves with his brand new EP “Brain$ick” and the visuals for the lead single “Coolin’.”
The Los Angeles native has been rising up the ranks ever since the release of his debut project “When Pig$ Fly” back in 2016. He followed that up with another EP named “Don’t Look Down” in 2017 and he’s ready to keep his streak going this year with his most complete work yet.
The “Brain$ick” EP features seven tracks and appearances from guests Zelly Wood$, Mathaius Young and Solow as well as production from Rit$y and longtime collaborator Ninedy2.
It showcases Rit$y at his best thus far, alternating between a variety of sounds and vibes, each with his own unique spin. The visuals for “Coolin’” further exemplify the fun energy found in his music, as he takes viewers along on a ride through LA as he spends his free time living up to the song’s name and coolin with his squad.
