Voice in the Attic – “Warts & All” – his strongest record thus far

I discovered BC Bogey aka Voice in the Attic during 2015, listening to the single “Over”, and fell in love with this project instantly. BC Bogey is a critically acclaimed songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning music video director and classically trained singer, who works with Grammy-winning musicians and sound engineers from Europe and the USA. The way he can easily glide through the organic chill of some songs, into the homey, campfire-like tunes, then to the fully fleshed-out modern twist of others, will always surprise me. He puts so much effort into the music and the lyrics, it’s always worth supporting him.

ECHOGLASS – “Hard” – Blistering guitars, muscular bass and drums

The Lancashire, Blackburn-based collective, ECHOGLASS, is a musical vehicle for core members DA McKenna, Remmy and Bo, who release their creations through Darkhouse Recordings. Their work is musically and lyrically distinct, and from the beginning they have always transcended the generic constraints of UK indie pop, punk and rock. Reinventing their blended sound on each release. While most of their contemporaries are electronic based clones, ECHOGLASS’ latest single “Hard”, inspires and delights with its guitar driven engine room. Going against the current tide, the band’s music is intense, introspective and acutely observant – a wholly alternative world view. The lead vocals are

Kee Beez – “Keep It 100” – cocked, locked, and ready to rock!

Kee Beez grew up in the SF Bay area California with his ability to produce, perform and record. The Rap and Hiphop artist is fresh off his 10 track project “Keep It 100” from Da Kee Records. The recording has a refreshing flow to it that hip hop albums lately have been totally lacking. It exhibits a hip hop artist, holding out his pen-game and showing you a compass pointing to the true core of the hip hop culture that most albums fail to point to as of recent years. And it’s not just someone barely mumbling over lyrics with

Abeille – “Feels” – sensitivity and consummate craftsmanship

Abeille (meaning ‘honeybee’ in French) is an indie jazz-pop duo out of Nashville and Portland. This long distance project is made up of Emily Jewel and Samuel Terrazzino, who currently released their debut single “Feels”. “This song goes past the meaning of just two individuals finding each other,” explains the duo, continuing: “At the time this song was written we had just started playing music together again after a multi-year hiatus of minimal contact. This song was the turning point in our relationship from being just friends to something more.” They have since gone from being just friends, to a

DopeAMean – “Blue Faces” – There are plenty of highlights to be raved about!

DopeAMean born Josephis Wade, started rapping in 2004 with a rap group formerly known as Y.B.E. (Young Black Entrepreneurs). A decorated US Army Veteran, Wade was born in Columbus Georgia USA, to Lisa Denise Ceesay Pollard – a single mother. Raised in Metro-Atlanta, Ga and Auburn, Al, DopeAMean currently resides in Denver, and is the proud owner of the record label, Every-Thing Dope LLC. His latest project is 14 track album, “Blue Faces”. It’s enthralling on a sonic level, and the rapper keeps up lyrically, his flow more than malleable enough to fit with any groove put forward. It is

Frado180 – an instrumental artist and aspiring Hip hop producer from New York City, NY

Starting out as a passionate hip-hip DJ at the age of 15, Frado180 worked hard at the local gas station in order to own his first Turntable. And he never had to look back as a local group 2 in Room with hit single “Wiggle it” fame soon discovered his talent and helped him produce his first demo. At that moment his propulsive force of music truly began to take shape by its zig-zagging through genres, settling on moments of analogue clarity as well as digital refraction. Frado180 got his first real break when he landed a gig at a

Nachamuni – “Deep Down” a total floor filler with an infectious groove!

“Deep Down” is the new EDM single from electronic music producer Nachamuni, who is based in Vienna Austria. The track extends the reach of his signature sound. Most significantly, the Deep House track showcases a shift toward the high-minded, super-precise catchy pop production vibe of most modern electronic producers. The growling basslines have the potential to draw law enforcement officers to your doorstep, depending on the decibel level and kindness of your neighbors. Its structure dominates the landscape with both breathtaking impact and precision. The track refuses to recycle an old beat, gradually building from a melodic and soulful vocal

Alysha Releases Official Video for “David Attenborough”

A bit over a month ago, London born Alysha, a 17 year old teen with enormous talent as a singer and songwriter, would have probably not imagined for her career to catapult in such a sort of magical way. Every artist, before they begin their road to stardom and even throughout, always dream all they want to do to achieve their goals. We hear many stories of singers that were many times turned down by the industry, one that said industry sometimes gets a tough reality check, when they realize that the artist is now a superstar (on a different

Clark Cotton: Musician, Entrepeneur And Founder of RockNext Music

Clark Cotton is an emerging artist and the son of Margee McAdoo, the girl who spent the entire summer of 1957 with Elvis Presley at Graceland, cousin of Jim Cotton, recording engineer and Sandy Posey recording artist (Nashville, TN). Cotton finds his solace in Country music.

Listening to the collection of songs found on Clark Cotton’s website, it’s quite uncanny how Cotton has adopted and performed these tunes, written and composed by Jim Stiene. Considering that Cotton himself sees this music as far removed from his personal life as one can imagine. He tackles this compromise using his musical integrity rather intelligently, by blending his built-in irony, as on “I Thank The Lord”, or his penchant for telling everyday real-life stories with a satirical twist, like “Dysfuntional” and “Slice Of The Pie”. The sound is simple and unpretentious. It is a really good collection of what is normally termed as classic ‘third generation’ country, a sound that Johnny Cash would later turn into Rockabilly.

These songs build on the roots of the music that Cotton evidently loves. You get the feeling that this music sounds so good with him, because it is music that he has felt and performed with heartfelt sincerity.

Each individual song by Clark Cotton can be fully enjoyed by Country music lovers in its own right; however, collectively they have a profound cohesion made possible by Cotton’s sincere and honest interpretation of each and every song.

In the process, Cotton has gone quite a few steps farther, looking over and above his own musical career. He has created a social network for emerging artists seeking cloud, browser, search, playlist, messaging and games solutions, to produce and distribute quality inventory.

In fact Cotton is the founder and CEO of the RockNext Music Entertainment, Inc. The company which formed in 2011, is a pre-revenue, start-up music entertainment platform. RockNext will offer “white labeled” branded revenue products including; live venues, publishing, licensing, merchandising, TV, film, audio, video, digital cloud storage facility, internet web browser, social network, digital music and video playlist, real time messaging and competitive virtual on-line games to its retail members, emerging artists, industry professionals, & fans.

RockNext plans to help emerging artists, industry professionals and fans, by delivering  a connection to the A-list, a unique social network based experience by seeing videos, playing games, creating and  listening to music and then attending or performing live to promote and publish their “brand” and to share profits on merchandising and ads.

In a nutshell, RockNext is creating a specific value chain for emerging artists on each of the new digital music distribution fronts, with a focus on initial recordings, cloud storage, online contests, live ticketing events, digital piracy prevention, ads and paid streaming videos, emerging artist development, producing, licensing, recording, mixing, mastering and engineering of audio and video, and by providing facilities and technology to emerging artists produced by Rocknext, to “showcase” at key live events.

In this constant, modern-day music evolution, which is helping many unknown artists find an outlet for the creative talents, there can be no doubt that another musical services platform will be most welcomed by all artists striving to better their respective careers and creative processes.
