Dru Paris: “With You (Alex Lustig – Light) Remix” – rides in on warm blanket of electronic sound

Dru Paris is one of the newer urban artists emerging from the streets of NYC. Inspired by the death of his brother a few years ago, Paris released the highly anticipated EP ‘Prolific’ dedicated to him. Since its inception, Paris has continued to make his own brand of new-wave hip hop and RnB. Blending new school tempo, high energy vocals and a smooth melody to match. Whenever I hear a hip-hop artist say he listens to John Mayer my ears and curiosity immediately pricks up and takes heed. And without hearing a single musical note or rapped verse, me expectations

Sleep Keepers: “ROAR!” – the sound becomes rock art!

Alternative rock band ‘Sleep Keepers’ has released the EP “ROAR!”, which contains 4 heavy dynamic tracks with elements of dubstep, female harsh screaming vocals and cipher-filled lyrics. The Ukrainian-based Sleep Keepers, consists of drummer Toshi, straight from the heart of Japan, the guitar player Ilya, from a war zone and lead singer Talana, from the capital of Ukraine. Even with cascading riffs, powerful vocals, and bouncing choruses, “ROAR!” enlists an underlining layer of trickery. Isolating these clever moments takes many listens, but inevitably adds incredible depth to the recording. In a music industry plagued by clones and angsty teens trying

Beau James: “Landmarks” – one of the best things to come down the pike in many a moon

From the opening track, “Broken Hearted Past”, you realize that the brand new recording by Beau James – “Landmarks” – is no ordinary EP. It is one of the best independent Americana EPs in years. It has touches of classic Americana, rock and roots flavors coupled with a polished production. Each track offers great engineering, amazing vocals and a very talented group of musicians. After listening to this EP, you’ll begin to hum the tunes, which is always a great indication of how deeply music has impacted the listener out of the blocks.

Woren Webbe Gets You Hooked In The Emotions Of His Songs

Woren Webbe, is an Indian singer-songwriter and melody maker. At the age of 11 Webbe joined an English music choir where he got a massive opportunity to work with Indian jazz music legends like Laura Santana and Babush Santa. He started working for theatre groups, doing jingles, advertising and music scoring. In 2004 he left the music because he was more interested and focused on his studies.

During 2006 Webbe got over his broken love life, after having been inspired to write sad heartbreaking music which reflected his own situation. This changed his attitude making him more devoted to his music. In 2008 he sent his music to one of the most popular DJ’s in India, “DJ KARMA”, who was the only person playing Hiphop and R&B music in India at the time.

Woren Webbe debuted in the Asian Underground scene for his own new debut album, totalling over 1200000 views on MySpace and gaining over 120,000 fans on Facebook. Webbe reached #1 all over Asia in 2009.

I was introduced to Woren Webbe when I heard the track “Down In Love” featuring Karma. The song got my attention but I needed to hear more tracks before I decided to believe in Webbe’s project. Once I heard “You’re So Beautiful” featuring Efinxace, I knew that I would believe in it.

From beginning to end, this is quality R&B; some upbeat, some soothing, some thoughtful, some nostalgic, but all worth listening to. In general, I find it difficult to find a male vocalist who delivers melodically; with lyrics you can understand, and play around people of all ages, sex and creed. Webbe’s lyrics, tempo, and sound is also relevant to many, varied emotions and moods.

Out of the new breed of R&B singers like Chris Brown, Bobby V and Neyo etc., Woren Webbe needn’t feel inferior, he may only be lacking their wondrous production teams, but if he continues his constant growth in maturity and in his music style, he will certainly be able to take the torch from these guys sooner or later.

Woren Webbe delivers on all counts and could easily become one of the top, lasting performers in the R&B genre. He’s a soulful crooner and he gets you hooked in the emotions of his songs, like on “What About Us” performed together with Efinxcase. The tears just may fall on this one as you feel the boy’s pain. The song takes it back to the origins of R&B lyrically, pain and heartbreak and most of all, relativity.

Woren Webbe’s voice smooths over every track he does, proving to past fans and newcomers alike that he is here to stay. Listen to “Dreams” and “Don’t Walk Away” where he infuses pop melodies with rich, soulful productions. His vocal range and timbre, creates both strong emotion and sentiment for his songs.

Like many of his contemporaries, Woren Webbe seems to possess some love and respect for old-school R&B, and it shows through his solid song-writing skills and his soulful, melodious vocals. This is certainly among the best indie R&B I’ve heard in a while. Webbe is the real deal. He mixes a bit of the 80’s and 90’s R&B and Soul, with today’s modern urban sound, and it comes out sounding great.

Woren Webbe is a significant artist who certainly has a passion for music and best of all, anybody can enjoy his songs, regardless of genre, because they are truly beautiful, and that’s what music is: an art form able to motivate and uplift, with the beauty of its melody and rhythm. Few do it better than Woren Webbe!
