“Ocean” – The New Video by Lara Lova

“Ocean” by Lara Lova, is an emotional inspiration, and a dedication to all living things.  It’s creamy and huge, coupling the beautiful character of her voice with a pulsating production of gentle euphoria. The explosion of the choruses hit like golden sparks showering from the sky – one of many well executed pay offs which prove that her ambitions are well warranted. Lara Lova greatest strength remains her wistful, wood-windy voice. It has natural charm and raw emotional relatability, which plays well against the electronic production and the track’s sheer desire to be a colossal hit.  Music is a

After having spent 40 years honing his craft in the Austin are, born and bred Texas musician and singer, Jim Wyly has been labelled a “Texas Songwriter”, though his creative talents take him far outside that box. For years a member of several bands including Movin Target and The Lunar Rollers, Wyly has finally decided to take the solo route, at the tender age of seventy something.

Dubgee – “Truth” is a prime example of how much of a dedicated artist he is

Doug Tree better known as Dubgee is a rapper, producer, beat maker, and label owner, from Vancouver, Canada. As an old school hip hop head, I’m so thankful that I stumbled on to his latest album “Truth”. Dubgee is a genuine artist and a true musician. Whether the media pays attention or not, at this point there are enough people who can hear the truth – we are witnessing one of the more versatile artists in the genre. Dubgee’s inner confessional memoir style is reminiscent of Eminem. A style that creates descriptively terrifying wordplay, but refrains in his subtle and

Based between London and Paris, Plastic Barricades are Dan Kert on guitars and vocals and Paul Love on drums. They have released “Optimist”, the second single from the upcoming LP “Self-Theories”. “The song is accompanied by a truly DIY music video, featuring 8 houses, 8 cars, plenty of glassware, some benches and trees, a crowd of exactly 300 cast members and around 20 buckets of water,” explains the duo. And if you find that slightly out of the ordinary, wait until you see the video clip created by PB art-director Elina Pasok. “Australia is on fire, the Amazon is burning,

Barbara Hall: “Bad Man” Moves Like A Hypnotic Cadence

To TV audiences she may be better known as a four-time Emmy-nominated writer and producer (Joan of Arcadia, Judging Amy), but to avid readers she’s a novelist with 11 published works whose imagination has been honoured by numerous institutions, including the American Library Association in both their Best Books and Notable Books categories.

Currently, Barbara Hall is serving as a co-executive producer of the Emmy-winning Showtime drama Homeland, inking a two-year deal with studio Fox 21. In addition, she is developing a separate script at CBS. But Hall is also a founding member of the alternative country rock band The Enablers, with whom she has released two albums. As a solo artist, she released her debut, Handsome, in 2005 and second CD, Bad Man, in 2013.

Producer Peter Himmelman had this to say about Hall: “For 10 songs this brimming with intensity, the making of this record was implausibly pain free. It was easy and you can do it too — just like we did: in two nights of recording and a couple overdubs. Easy yes, but first you’ll need to find an artist like Barbara Hall, a fantastic singer, a writer who knows the magic of what makes songs connective and a hawk-eyed observer of both the foibles and triumphs of the human spirit. On second thought, that might be hard.” 

The Multi-Talented Barbara Hall

The Multi-Talented Barbara Hall

The eight-year gap between “Bad Man” and 2005’s terrific “Handsome” finds Hall resurfacing in radiant, surefooted fashion and confident of her abilities. This latest album is a bold, ambitious adventure, an exhilarating roller coaster ride through the many twists and turns found along the album’s ten tracks. Barbara Hall’s obvious strong desire to stretch herself artistically has taken a new direction. This new recording covers innovative, intelligent material, the sound is fresh and exciting with Hall’s style of heartfelt emotion and gutsy deliveries blended into each mix. Several tracks delve into thorny, sophisticated themes with complex, progressive arrangements, while others feature the type of material one could identify as adult-orientated easy listening.

The album opens with the title track, “Bad Man”, a tune with deep, rich tones and warm glowing harmonies. Hall’s vocal performance is impeccable; you feel the depth of emotion pouring into every verse. The lyrics are powerful, offering the kind of inspiration most will find personally relevant.

Throughout the album Hall changes gears, with slower or faster rhythmic structures which gradually move like a hypnotic cadence, while the symbolism within her lyrics, are more thought provoking than is apparent. Her songs touch just about every aspect of music, from country and pop to rock, what more can you ask for?

Standouts are “Criminal Times”, “Little Old Soul”, “Bad Man”, and my favorite, “Thunder Road”. This is probably the best piece of work that Hall has done to date and I expect she will be doing even greater things in future…if she can find the time between one Tv show and the next!

Barbara Hall is a lovely, talented artist, and her voice, songs and spirit are gifts to a world in search of  true beauty.

The Official CD Release Show will be held on October 19th, at the Mint in LA. Every Friday the Barbara Hall crew will be giving away VIP tickets to random fans who have liked Barbara’s Facebook Page at: fb.com/barbarahallhq
