My friend and fellow central Texas performer Alison Papion has been on a wonderful upward trajectory that has been a joy to see from an objective viewpoint. After years building her name, stage presence and abilities with stints in the Grid Squid Entertainment collective and the live band StereoFiend, Papion took a break to pursue modeling opportunities and handle personal aspects of her life. 2021, however, finds her returning to the world of music with Dazed N Confused, the titular lead single from an upcoming solo project she plans to release. After hearing her sing over mostly hip-hop beats and funk-inspired live jams, it’s refreshing to hear her fall into a more traditionally modern R&B sound, and if the lead single is any indication of what’s to come from the full project, then I will definitely be waiting with excitement. Check out the single on iTunes, Apple Music or Spotify, and keep track of her for news on the release of the full project.

I try my best to keep an eye on what my creative peers are doing, especially when they step outside of what they’re traditionally known for, and I always enjoy it when I see someone start to carve a second or third path for themselves. Click-Clack has been talented since the day I met him, but over the years I’ve gotten to see aspects of his personality shine that I respect deeply. As a native Austinite like myself, I know that he cares deeply about the scene and how it’s both represented and presented to the public at large, and it’s brought the influencer vibes out of him in the form of strongly curated and frequently updated playlists, complete with customized artistic thumbnails. For Austin Rap Current, the roster of Austin-based talent is deep and diverse, including a handful of folks who have received recent shine on this blog. Check out the playlist, give it a follow, and keep an eye out for other playlists that Click-Clack curates.
