Tiaday Ball drops two new singles – “Current” and “Good To You”

Tiaday Ball has released two follow up singles to her first release “Favors”. The songs “Current” and “Good To You”, are both now available anywhere you get digital music from. Tiaday stated: “R&B has been the foundation of my life in music since I can remember. Gospel, soul and R&B were always playing in the house or being sung by my father who was also a singer and he loved Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, etc. One of the first songs I ever learned how to REALLY train singing along to was “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.

DAV!D&CLARA: “Repair” – rugged and intense!

The man and machine duo of DAV!D (David Castillo) and his computer CLARA, better known as DAV!D&CLARA, are back with a new single in 2019, called “Repair”. The track is taken from the upcoming album, “CONFESSIONS OF THE MACHINE” to be released early 2020. Much of this latest single displays a minimalist, almost survivalist element, as if every movement, gesture, and note is conserved and used for maximum effect. DAV!D’s songwriting principle seems to be “less is more”, a sentiment CLARA seems to adhere to perfectly. Together they have an artistic sensibility that’s far from common. The song is based

Iskar D’Abrel: “Ruins of You” – a compelling musical depth

Perhaps Iskar D’Abrel’s only misfortune is releasing his music at the wrong time.  Had he dropped the track “Ruins of You” in the 70’s, 80’s or even early nineties, he surely would have been recognized universally along with other greats of those eras.  It was a time where artists were not defined by a specific genre and allowed to approach different styles of music with a creative freedom almost totally lost today. Iskar is a master of song construction.  No song in his catalog is just a repeat of parts.  Each song is its own story; each follows its own

The Glacier Effect: “False Memories” carries many emotional moments

The Glacier Effect is Jason McCann, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and graduate of the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences who is currently based in Sacramento, California. The project’s music incorporates elements of shoegaze, indie rock, Goth, darkwave, and 90’s alternative rock to create its unique, guitar-based, cinematic sound. The quality of work across The Glacier Effect’s latest 10 track album release, “False Memories” is uniformly high and displays a genuinely concise approach: tightly structured, unadorned, precisely detailed pieces that never over stay their welcome, and never exhaust their premise. Which of course is so unlike most instrumental music. Before applying

MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN RICK LEVY IS “HIGH IN THE MID-60S”

High in the Mid-’60s: How to Have a Fabulous Life in Music without Being Famous first started as Rick Levy’s journal (which began while touring as Peter Noone’s bandleader and tour manager) where he wrote about discovering his roots and what turned out to be a lifelong passion realized. Readers will discover High in the Mid ‘60s is a memoir, rock and roll everyman story, spiritual discovery, survival manual and an anecdotal treasure chest of life on the road. Rick went from being a member of The Limits, a garage band, to having a failed major label recording contract, to

Gisele Anthony: Personifies the Perfect Woman, Artist, Diva!

Gisele Anthony is a vocalist, songwriter and storyteller. She is a native New Yorker now residing in South Carolina. Gisele is scored in elements of Soul, Jazz, R&B, Pop, Gospel, World and Classical music to create the symphony of her music. She is a vocal arranger, studio vocalist, and video conceptualist. Gisele has also worked in the genre of musical theater. Her voice has been called, soothing, hypnotic, smooth, fierce and ageless.

My first impression of Gisele was obtained through a video interview I watched on Youtube. This occurred even before I took the opportunity to hear one single word she sings. Three words quickly came to my mind after watching the video interview; ‘Woman, Artist, Diva’!

I then flew right over to her website, to hear her sing. My, oh my, was I right! Now each of you would probably put the order of the three above-mentioned words – ‘Woman, Artist and Diva’, into your own personal order, but you could never describe Gisele Anthony perfectly without actually including ALL of those three words.

Few female artists, except Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone…and then maybe Mary J. Blige, to mention one of today’s artists who come to mind, could be described in the same way for me. Your Rihanna’s, and Beyonce’s etc., are certainly sexy, sassy, extraordinarily talented, and super successful to say the least, but they don’t completely encompass certain elements that make up the ‘Woman, Artist and Diva’ aura. I personally call it the ‘WAD’ factor.

Without really knowing it Gisele Anthony actually describes some of those very elusive elements, when she explains the message behind her music. She calls it the “G” Factor, not for Gisele, but for what she hopes to share with the world in Goodness, Grace, Giving, and Guidance.

If there is justice in the world, Giselle’s latest releases should definitely introduce her to a much larger audience and bring her a truckload of success. There is, no doubt, that she pours all of her considerable vocal and songwriting talents into her work.

All of the tracks I heard are outstanding, my favorites include “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”, a triumph of writing, Gisele’s trademark forceful vocal performance, the brilliantly rhythmic musical arrangement, and extraordinary background harmony accompaniment; “Choices,” is another brilliantly orchestrated track with its funky jazz rhythms; the poetically beautiful “Sometimes”; “All I Ever Wanted,” an inspiring, toe-tapping faith-healing message to all ; plus the double treat of the slow burner “Know…Never Alone” and the soulful rhythms of “Free”.

There are not enough superlatives that can be heaped upon Gisele Anthony’s collection of songs. Not only does her music stand on its own two feet where topics, vocals and lyrics are concerned, but the production is certainly epic, where independent releases are concerned. Gisele’s music has the ‘big label’ sound and arrangements incorporated.

Listening to Gisele Anthony is like overhearing a very personal, heartfelt conversation between good friends. She brings nothing but straight up soulful music to the table, which is hard to ignore. God creates everyone with a purpose and passion, and when Gisele sings – you get the impression that music is why she was put here on this earth. There seems to be nothing fake or manufactured about her performances. She is simply inspiring and deserves any success or accolades that may come her way.

For me Gisele represents the ultimate ‘Woman, Artist and a Diva’…and you can put that in any order you want!
