Shehzad Bhanji – “Dreams” – impeccable tone and technique

Shehzad Bhanji is a guitar virtuoso. He is mostly known for his proficiency on the electric guitar. Though his playing style at times would tend to put him in the category of guitar shredder, Shehzad is not from the pure shredder school, where most of the playing consists of running musical scales at blistering speed. His playing is more melodic and soulful, though he will shred if it fits the context of the song or passage being played. His latest album, “Dreams” highlights his skills and playing style clearly. His mastery and command of the guitar here, is unreal. His

King Femi – “Young Queens” highlights every element of his artistry!

King Femi is a Hip-Hop/Rap artist from Atlanta, GA. He doesn’t have a comfort zone. As a restlessly eccentric artist, he’s not afraid to change course, or to experiment. The elasticity of his catalogue keeps him tethered to hip-hop, as he bounces around all of its facets, like many of his successful contemporaries. With all this willful blurring underway, it seems more than fair for one of rap’s most versatile and dynamic figures to pivot towards the perceived success formula. His latest release is the trap flavored “Young Queens”. The track dazzles in its tightrope effort to remain endearingly deviant

Damian Sage – It’s impossible to listen to “Drive” without being genuinely moved

Listening to the single “Drive”, is a whole different and beyond glorious experience. Singer and songwriter, Damian Sage really outdoes himself with this one. The record, tugs at my heartstrings in the best and most beautiful gut-wrenching ways. I can feel the emotion as he sings each and every lyric. Released through Dark Spark Music, a record label headed by former Guns N Roses manager, and Grammy Award winner, Vicky Hamilton, “Drive” certainly gives me the chills each time listen to it. The two simple opening lines deliver the kind of powerful imagery most lyricists strive most of their lives

Everything about Ghost Tribe Fires works beautifully

Pre-order the singles on iTunes now!

The founding members of Ghost Tribe Fires, Jon Veitch (multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and vocals) and Liz Downs (drums and vocals) started gigging in 2011 while doing small tours up and down the West Coast and also played in Austin, Texas during a Critical Sun showcase at SXSW. In 2013, Tyler Hewett (Vocals and Piano) was asked to join, positively shifting the band’s focus towards the piano. Going forward, Ghost Tribe Fires will have live guest appearances by other notable musicians in the northwest music community.

For their single and video releases, Ghost Tribe Fires have collaborated with producer Jon Goff of “Self-Adhesive Records,” as well as director Brad Strain of “Scared of Genre Films.” In early 2015 Ghost Tribe Fires will release their debut EP.  In the meantime they will have 2 singles “Reaction” and “Paradise” ready for download on iTunes during December 2014, which you may pre-order starting now.

Everything about Ghost Tribe Fires works beautifully, combining traditional indie and alternative sounds with subtle nuances and production flourishes that build on what’s come before them, the band develop what they call Symphonic Alternative. It’s like a revival of raw garage-rock rhythms with elaborated 70s keyboard induced progressive-rock, sonic layers.

ghost-tribe-fires-300BANNERPopular music these days seems to be more about talent shows than it does about a bunch of people getting together to write songs and play instruments for the love of music. I have a hard time relating to the talent show type stuff even when there is actually real talent involved. Maybe it’s just my bias given the era from which I come, but the kind of thing Ghost Tribe Fires does sounds so much more real and relatable to my ears.

Both “Reaction” and “Paradise” are soulful, rootsy and vital roots rock played with passion and integrity, while pawing at the mainstream pop core. Ghost Tribe Fires have a rugged Americana flair for melody and substance that rings the bell like a dear old friend on “Paradise”, while the piano-driven rhythm of “Reaction” flies around the room searching for a place to settle down.

The band sounds exceptionally tight and professional, and the music flows with a naturally sincere warmth that reminds you why it matters. Apart from the creatively engaging keyboard arrangements, Ghost Tribe Fires have nothing strange or weird about them, or even going on in their music— it’s just solid songwriting and great playing from the heart. Sometimes that’s more than enough for most bands; with Ghost Tribe Fires it’s pretty close to brilliant!

There are hordes of bands out there that are enormously proficient on their instruments, but musicality is a far more elusive gift. Jon Veitch, Liz Downs and Tyler Hewett have that gift. And they wield it wonderfully on these two songs.

The glorious bridge and chorus of “Reaction” lets you know first time through that there’s more to this band than meets the ear. But Ghost Tribe Fires’ greatest asset is that there is nothing in their music that the average music fan could not appreciate – yet it’s inventive and edgy enough for even the most discerning music fan.

ghost-tribe-fires-300Expect to be blown away on the first listen, while you pre-order the singles, in anticipation of their upcoming Ep!
