RAVENSCROFT- “STAND UP” Video is the sound of a band inspired

Ralph Buso (Vocals), Brett Gorke (Guitars), Devin Baker (Bass), Pat Magrath (Drums), collectively known as RAVENSCROFT, are working on their most unique, creative, exploratory, and bone-crushing recording they have ever produced.

Exit 22 Music: “Last Goodbye” – one of the finest musical acts in the pop-rock underground

It seems almost impossible that an artist that has been around this long – 20 years in Chris Calamera’s case, can keep making records that stand up among the best that he has ever done. Let’s be clear: “Last Goodbye” is a great song. It’s poppy, with a big melody and an insistent rock rhythm, and it’s catchy as hell. Sounds like authentic Exit 22 Music to me. This is pure Calamera from his pop-rock songwriting style standpoint, and pure Exit 22 Music, considering the breathtaking vocals and high production-value quotient. The perfect, power-pop formula. Exit 22 Music has been keeping

Lake of the Lion embodies embody emotive sounds and textures

Lake of the Lion is the brand name and moniker for Luxembourg music composer and producer, Daniel Kohnen, who is steadily building up his catalog and increasing his fan-base with regular new releases. In recent years, ambient instrumental and soundtrack scores have been following a certain trend. Composers seem to have this motif of creating overblown pieces with harsh lead instruments blasting out from the blue and background strings creating suspense with their melodies. Sure it was fun for a while, but within that little span of time listeners were just begging for it to stop because composers had this

Natalie Jean and Levi Moore: “The Letting Go” speaks the language of the ordinary person

A good duet, in our modern age, is a rare thing. There are plenty of features, guest verses and co-writes, and the cameo drop-in is a dime a dozen. The number of genuine duets, where vocalists share verses and tell a story together in the space of a song, is very small. If your optimism fails you, as you wonder whether there are enough great acts to keep hit radio stocked with worthy pop music duets, it’s reassuring to find that Natalie Jean and Levi Moore have a first-rate single to carry us through the next few months, all by itself. The

MAKI: ‘Waking Up With The World On Fire’ – truly majestic — grandiose, slowly unfolding, and extremely cinematic

The world is a fragmented place, with fear and hate giving rise to isolationist movements around the globe and huge portions of the population turning inward rather than outward towards each other. As such waves of bigotry spread like wildfire, the music scene becomes extremely important, not just because it means more great music, but because it connects us all together on a wavelength that hits the human heart, soul and mind even harder, faster and deeper than anger can. A creative constant in the field of communicative contemporary Instrumental music, is MAKI who focuses his ample talents on a

3 Phase – ready for genre domination!

The names Chirag Shah, Prasham Deliwala and Melvin Saldana may in themselves not ring a familiar bell in your ear right now. Probably, neither will the moniker ‘3 Phase’, nor their 6 track self-titled EP. It’s logical, it’s the law of the industry’s hype machine – cast a light on the big label clones, and leave the independent creatives in the shadows. Luckily the internet has a different set of rules.  On hearing the 3 Phase EP, the lofty ambition, the focus and dedication of this creative collective of producers, songwriters and vocal talent, makes sense – its six tracks

Sy: “Get Out Of My Dreams” – grab this R&B and Soul extravaganza

The singer, songwriter and author, Sy, releases a brand new single produced by Rueben Wood. The track “Get Out Of My Dreams” is the first single release written by the artist in 2018, since writing two self-help books, “A Swan Among Ducks” and “Saying Yes to (No): Learning the Power of (No) before the end of 2017. This track soulfully captures the spirit and feel of the emotional journey of grown womanhood. It is juicy, dynamic, soulful, gorgeous, and it is nourishment for the soul…and mind, as it examines the intricacies of a relationship built on want and lust. As

TRVP HIPPI3Z: “On Lock” – no lack of muscular skill-flexing!

TRVP HIPPI3Z is a Canadian rap duo who just dropped their latest single entitled, “On Lock”.  Listeners beware. This product has been known to blow up and cause fires in a variety of stereo systems, due to the super-hot fire provided by this crew. TRVP HIPPI3Z is a team-up that has risen as great exemplars of righteous chaos. Their supersonic sound and hard-nosed imagery gives them a mysterious sheen, but the duo have grounded themselves via booming production, and a sonorous verbal presence, coupled with their willingness to fuck you up. Their chest-beating bravado is explosive on “IDGAF (Prod. THZ)”,

DANiiVORY: “Forever” featuring DIAMOND is warm and captivating

Multi-talented keyboardist and backing vocalist for Cee Lo Green and Beyoncé

DANiiVORY (born Theresa Danielle Flaminio) is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter, most noted her works as keyboardist and backing vocalist for Cee Lo Green in his all-girl backing band, Scarlet Fever, as well as handling keyboards for Beyoncé. DANi has appeared on The Tonight Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, Jools Holland (twice), Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen, Colbert Report, Good Morning America, and Lopez Tonight just to name a few. She has shared London’s Wembley Arena stage with The Foo Fighters, shared festivals bills and stages with Weezer, Sublime, Eminem, Stevie Wonder, Neyo, and Big Boi (from Outkast), and even opened for Prince at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

DANi has also landed gigs as keyboardist and background vocalist for Imagine Dragons and Bridgit Mendler, who she performed and toured with for several months. DANi was principal keyboardist for 2NE1’s (K-Pop girl group sensation) New Evolution World Tour. In December 2012, she played her first show as keyboardist for Beyoncé at the Wynn in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve and continued to perform with Beyoncé in the Superbowl XLVII halftime show which was televised to over 50 million viewers.

DANi’s debut EP ”Forever Yours”, will be released in 2014 along with DANi’s first official music video. DANi is performing around stages local to the Southern California demographic including The Troubadour, Silverlake Lounge, House of Blues, and more.

Following the release of her debut EP, “Forever Yours”, earlier this year, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native has now dropped her latest single “Forever” featuring DIAMOND through the L.A. based Studio City Entertainment Group.

Out of the blocks, DANiiVORY’s instrumental talents, musical arrangements, lyrics and superb vocals shine through on this track. And for someone who wrote their first song at the tender age of seven, I wouldn’t have expected otherwise.

She’s been thrilling audiences for years with her voice and keyboard performances in support of legendary artists, now she blows past her outstanding standards to produce something for herself.  “Forever” featuring DIAMOND showcases evocative lyrics with a mid-tempo, bouncy, proactive beat, and a warm and captivating vocal which is just so beautiful on the ear. It’s hard not to fall into the velvety grooves and deep soulfulness DANi forges on this track.

With the various projects she’s been involved in during the past few years, DANi has certainly been able to carefully cultivate her dulcet, dusky vocals, as well as learning exactly how to select songs that showcase her immense skills.

DANi’s technical range proves to be as sprawling as the emotional landscape covered on this song, while her soothing vocals never turn to screams or voice acrobatics. The lady is too smothered in confidence and coolness to bother with fickle gestures.

In her well-heeled tradition of impeccable performances and fully-ripened blend of contemporary genre-bending grooves, DANiiVORY has delivered again. Something she has been doing since sharing the stage with Marvin Hamlisch, The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and The Mendelssohn Choir by the time she was ten!
