The good-natured don of the working class can rap like the most vulgar deacon you’ll ever meet, driven by reactionary outbursts of authenticity and real Hip-Hop. Much like

Ramirez Coiva – “I’m Walking Away” shines in the way the guitar and string arrangements are so well put together

Ramirez Coiva regards himself as a Citizen of the World, who has been writing and making music since 2000. His single “I’m Walking Away” was written and recorded in Istanbul (Turkey), a couple of years ago. The song is a hybrid between the alternative rock guitar sound of the past and a look toward a more modern, sleeker pop sound. One thing is clear on this track, there are very few people that can match Ramirez Coiva’s all-embracing songwriting talent. Regardless of style, whether it’s heavy guitars or strings, keyboards and drums, a great song is a great song, and

Paul Koudouris: “Twenty-Something” A Coherent Work!

Paul Koudouris, who hails from San Antonio – TX, is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter. Paul studied music and theatre at Point Park Universities Conservatory Program and Regents College London earning his BA in Musical Theatre. He completed his debut album “Twenty-Something” at Killingsworth Recording Company in Los Angeles Produced by Tomas Costanza. The album had its official release at Sundance Film Festival 2013 as a featured artist.

While modern music continues to move towards a more synthesized, polished brand of sound, there has been an increase in artists that focus on traditional, folksy songwriting. Amos Lee, Ben Harper, The Lumineers, Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, The Civil Wars, The Avett Brothers, and the list goes on and on.

Paul Koudouris’ debut album “Twenty-Something” firmly establishes him as an indie artist to be reckoned with in these ranks. This isn’t music assembled to hook you in between radio ads. With much of today’s music being the way it is, you’ll find that you’ve “tuned your ears” to the templated song, waiting for the quick hook so you can absorb it. You’ll listen to it a few times then throw it away, but you can’t do that with Paul’s music and if you approach it that way you’re likely to pass his work off as simple folk music. But if you listen to what he’s trying to say, if you search for the soul of the artist you’ll find no masquerade on this album. “Twenty-Something”, is a coherent work. It is an imaginative and inspired album.

The songs here are heart-felt; intense, strong, sad, angry, and joyful, in a word, varied! He touches on familiar everyday life themes, combining his lyrical poetry with simple yet powerful melodies that are driven by his extraordinary vocal range.  Paul Koudouris is one of those singers with a distinctive voice, so powerful; it will lift your soul through every verse and chorus. And when you listen to his music, you realize it is a perfect match.

All throughout the album, Paul sounds like he is sitting two feet in front of you and singing directly to you. The arrangements are in keeping with this. A beautiful acoustic guitar and a few minimal embellishments,  drive the album, yet it has an incredibly dynamic resonance that rings all around the room.

Paul demonstrates a range of voices and styles that putting him into a single category would invariably leave something out. He relies on the power of musical understatement, allowing his voice to convey strong emotion in each and every song. The standout songs that make up the middle of the album: “Better Off With The Blues,” “My Kinda Girl,” “Eyes Closed On The Ride Home,” and “Til The Real Thing Comes Along,” as well as the final track “Somewhere Along The Way” are perfect examples of deceptively simple, but extraordinarily compelling deliveries.

On “Twenty-Something,” Paul Koudouris will quickly become your inspiration, with a voice that packs such a punch, it will stay with you for quite a while. There haven’t been that many debut albums this rich, this pure, this touching in a long time. Paul possesses a gift, a raw talent that helps you see through to the very emotion he’s feeling with every note he sings.
