Project Grand Slam, the acclaimed band led by celebrated bassist/composer Robert Miller, has re-released their single “Get Out!”, Miller’s anti-Trump political protest song. Like many Americans, Miller has been profoundly upset by so much that the president has said and done. In response, he wrote “Get Out!”, which does not mention Trump by name but nevertheless contains a clear message. Says Miller, “I wrote the song last fall in response to all the insanity of this Administration, which I thought at the time couldn’t get any worse. But with the ongoing impeachment inquiry the song is even more relevant today”,

Monjyoti – “Neighbor Syndrome” is meticulously structured

Monjyoti Bhattacharyya known by his stage name, Monjyoti, released his second official single “Neighbor Syndrome”, taken from his upcoming album, “Hypnosis”, recorded in collaboration with music producer Papu Gogoi. I don’t even need to hear the rest of the album. This single is simply a dexterous, dynamic and sublime smorgasbord of instrumentation and lyrical canny, on a level I’ve not heard in a long time. Music can’t always be this good because we would have nothing by which to benchmark its ingenuity. There are sections that are nice mellow journeys to somewhere else and there are downright monstrous sections that

Omar Bowing – “Paradox” – is simply breathtaking in its composition and emotive power

Atmospheric, ethereal, moody, dark, progressive … these are all words that come to mind listening to the opening bars of “Paradox” – the latest track from Omar Bowing, featuring singer Tyson Yen. The music is as one would expect from this consummate composer and Guitarviol player – engulfing and entrancing. Using a whole host of rock driven instrumentation, it should not be surprising that the soundscape is lush, expansive and blasting. “The idea of the song,” explains Bowing, “is about the recognition of the power of a Paradox to challenge or even destroy a concept, idea, belief, etc., that is

Alessia D’ Andrea: “Set Me Free Set Me On Fire,” A Scrapbook Of Emotions

To grasp the fast-rising qualities of Italian singing star, Alessia D’ Andrea, and appreciate the release of her new single,“Set Me Free Set Me On Fire,” we first need to trace the way back to her beginnings. After winning some of the most important music festivals in Italy, such as the “Mia Martini Award” and the “Musicultura Award”, the major prize for Italian songwriters, in 2004 Alessia D’Andrea met Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull with whom she recorded “Locomotive Breath”.

From that moment Alessia started receiving international approval, in fact her single “Time To Pray” (remixed by Molella, Future Funk and other djs) has been released throughout the world in Countries such as the UK, Romania, Australia, Spain, Poland, Norway, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Czech Republic, Israel, etc. Later that same year she signed a contract with the Ministry of Sound (UK).

Alessia also began to perform outside of Italy with success. In Warsaw she performed in front of more than 100,000 fans, as well as appearing on both national Radio and TV. In July 2008 she performed on stage with Jethro Tull again, at the “Pistoia Blues Festival”, for their 40th anniversary. A year later saw her new album “Alessia D’Andrea” (Renilin), released in Italy and also distributed in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Canada. Alessia was also invited to the most important TV and radio shows of some Eastern European Countries.

During the first half of 2010 her video clip “8 o’ clock” was played on different music channels, among them RAI Music, and it was chosen by a TV show in China. Some months later the music video “Tonight”, in the duet version with Lubo Kirov, was selected by MTV Europe for the World Chart Express. In the same year, she had a new success with the well-known Italian DJ Molella, with “Paradise” (Time Rec) that became the theme song for the most popular Italian radio show and one of the biggest hits of that summer. She was also the special guest at the Fabrizio De Andrè Tribute concert held at the Opera Theatre in Sofia, in front of the country’s major National Authorities.

In 2011 she released the “Live in Studio” (Renilin), a DVD of her acoustic-electric show, while in 2012 she worked on her new production and chose “Set Me Free Set Me On Fire” as her brand new single, which has been released through all digital music stores from the 7th of January 2013.

“Set Me Free Set Me On Fire” has been released in two versions, the original and the Dubstep version, both of which are currently getting prime airplay on Jamsphere Rock Radio. With these new releases Alessia D’Andrea proves she is back on track and she wants everyone to know. There is no point in doubting her, especially after listening to this hard, soft, furious and sweet, two single versions that are distinctly alive. “Set Me Free Set Me On Fire” is everything it should be: a stylistic evolution, a stunning display of her craft as a vocalist and songwriter ( in collaboration with Antonio Notaro ) and a very personal scrapbook of her emotions in just over 3 minutes. This is Alessia in top form, as brutally passionate and as soulfully vocal as only she can be.

Since her rise in 2004, Alessia has ping-ponged between dense dance-floor anthems and fuzzy power pop, acoustic folk-rock and anthemic power ballads, rock tunes powered by electronic beats and dance tunes sung with the zeal of a rocker, she’s done it all, but on this Gromee arranged single, which was mixed and mastered by Stephan Zeh, she reaches her zenith. The song fits her like a glove. Here she sounds stronger than she ever has, and that’s a positively thrilling thing to hear. But she not only sounds stronger, she sounds convincing. In other words, she comes across as: smooth, powerful, sexy, catchy, and best of all, surprising and unpredictable.

It’s rare these days to find an artist that actually improves over time as opposed to recycling the same tired materials over and over again. Alessia is one of those artists, and deserves much more publicity and success. On “Set Me Free Set Me On Fire” she plays on all of her strengths: strong vocals, deep lyrics, passionate deliveries and a surefire personality. The video of the song, currently available on Youtube, will confirm all of the above.

Quite honestly, Alessia D’Andrea once again has stunned us with a single that is amazingly written, sung, and put together. “Set Me Free Set Me On Fire,” proves beyond doubt that she is here to stay. This woman is seriously talented and an artist that I firmly believe, will evolve and grow even more as she matures and expands her horizons. (top picture by by V.
