Matthew J Van Howe – “Emergent Narrative” – a deluge of his sonic palette!

You could call this ambient, experimental, drone, avant-garde, cinematic or simply electronic music, the fact is “Emergent Narrative”, is so impactful it’s like it’s its own genre. It’s as if some new musical form has been created from retro synthwave sounds, and ultra-modern avant-garde motifs. I was stunned by the textures, and the moods that got stuck in my head, along with the intensity and dynamic depth. This is an album to hear again and again. Loud, raucous, serene, gentle, stretching, insistent, melodic, dissonant. It is a collection of 12 musical pieces with simple one-word titles. Meaning, the Chicago composer,

Andy Pett – “Back Again” turns hurt into art with great results on this song

Experience with adversity builds exemplary character and a spirit of resilience that allows artists to deliver great music. Their personal stories provides them with original ideas and profound insight to rap or sing about, creating a relatable feeling of vulnerability that fans emotionally connect with. Many prominent artists from today’s culture have battled through adversity to become widely accepted and beloved. There is an interesting argument – and quite a lot of statistics lean toward this theory – that adversity is necessary to become successful.  The bottom line seems to be that many artists lack the ambition to succeed because

Onicks – “High” is a deep slow-burn

With its enigmatic beauty, intoxicating depth and intense emotion, the follow-up to “High” is one of the most intriguing records of the year so far. The lyrics are elliptical and fragmented, touching on addiction, identity and eroticism. The track’s mood is druggy, dislocated and tortured – there are frequent metaphoric references to substances and psychedelics – the shape-shifting structure of “High” will capture your attention from top to bottom. Snapshots of elusive love and fleeting lust are scattered throughout – for whom, or for what, is where you need to read between the lines. Born and raised in the San

Midwest Hiphop duo Strangers Of Necessity drop their new single “Abundance”

Strangers Of Necessity are an American hip-hop duo, based in the Midwest, consisting of prolific producer, CoryaYo and veteran lyricist, Fooch the MC. They linked via Twitter and quickly became friends, sparking an immediate chemistry and need to make quality music together; hence the name Strangers Of Necessity. They instantly began recording music and doing shows locally, generating a nice buzz in the area. Their sound is best described as a fresh take on that golden era of hip-hop, blending tasteful jazz and soul samples, crisp snares, boomy kicks on wonky patterns with a soulful delivery, dense schemes and potent

Kilo M.O.E. – ‘Fly G’z and Palm Treez’ – serves as the perfect canvas for the rapper’s elite lyricism

The Baltimore-based producer, songwriter, rapper, Kilo M.O.E.’s evolution over his past three albums has been inspiring to see. I’ll always admire artists who push themselves creatively, and that’s exactly what, Kilo M.O.E. has done on his fourth studio album, ‘Fly G’z and Palm Treez’, and it pays off in leaps and bounds. Each instrumental is rich and developed, serving as the perfect canvas for the rapper’s elite lyricism. Something that this recording and Kilo M.O.E.’s recent albums have done well is allow him the freedom to rap for the sake of his craft within the confines of the album’s larger

Jim Wyly – “You Took Me” – It’s rhythmically tight, warm and edgy

Texas singer songwriter Jim Wyly is back with another soul-stirring track from his “The Artisan” album. Over 40 years deep into his craft, the Austin troubadour sounds like a home-cooked meal. He deals out comfort food for the head, heart, and soul. All of this serves his finely drawn guitar lines, bourbon-stained-like vocals, and funky acoustic-driven grooves as thick as molasses. A subtle blend of blues, country, folk and southern rock runs right down the middle of “You Took Me”. “Musicians’ musician” is an overused term. Why wouldn’t anyone with two good ears appreciate Jim Wyly? As Jim doesn’t cater

Hanen Release Brand New Video For The Song “Breathe”

It’s never been easier for artists to stay independent. Of course you can get good music producers, good visual directors for videos, good rappers and good singers to feature on your track without a great budget, but you have to search the world over to find deals you can afford, or convince creatives to work with you. Texas born artist, now living in the LA area, Hanen, somehow got it all together on his latest track called “Breathe”. He sings soulfully and raps with an urban edge all by himself, backed by an atmospheric slow-burning, and ear-warming beat made by

Angry B – “Hey Corona! (Nice to Meet Ya)” – reflects the realities with a good dose of wit

On his latest single, “Hey Corona! (Nice to Meet Ya)”, underground music hobbyist Angry B pinned his rap skills and dark wit, to the sounds of mainstream pop and a funky EDM template. He blurs the lines between genres with the top of the charts — and only the top — in his sights. As can be deciphered from the song title, Angry B pulls his aspirations from the dramatic Covid-19 disease hitting mankind across the globe. “It’s one of the most critical situations we’ve had and there will be a lot of sad stories connected with it,” says Angry

Izzie’s Caravan – “Leo’s Guitar EP” – an understated guitar virtuoso

On the recording, “Leo’s Guitar EP”, Izzie’s Caravan and his guitar conspire to use every single crayon within the blue color box to deliver one of the best underground independent studio blues releases I’ve heard this year. Among others, Izzie takes his cue from greats such as Lightnin’ Hopkins, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, and Eric Clapton. So you can expect a wide and wholesome finger bending spectrum of sounds. The aforementioned guitar heroes are points of reference, not simple deductions for resemblance. The opening song, “Two’s In The Bush”, has a highway drive, and jangly timbre that’s upbeat and

Jessica Domingo: “Masterpiece” – has been recorded with multi-platinum Grammy award-winning producer Mikal Blue

Jessica Domingo began piano lessons at the age of 5 and took up guitar at age 12. During this time, she also began performing in public. She later met Seattle-based producer Don Quijano, who was by her side at every performance. He taught Domingo guitar, provided industry guidance, and gave tips for working onstage and in the studio. The pair’s collaboration resulted in the “Take A Chance” EP, which was the followed up a full-length album, entitled “Just Vibe”, produced by Dylan Fant of Seattle’s One Shot Studio.

Aside from a very successful YouTube career and her new studio albums, Domingo has been involved with Asian American Singing Idol, the Seattle Filipino community’s ‘Pista Singing Idol,’ and the Filipino-Canadian PNT TV5 Singing Idol. In each of these contests, she was placed firmly in the top three competitors.

jessica-domingo-400Listening to her new release, “Masterpiece”, Jessica Domingo simultaneously evokes all great singers and yet, she’s totally original. Her voice is sultry, her lyrics are just colorful and profound, and unlike a lot of other singers, she’s not afraid to allow tons of contrasting emotion run through her vocals at any one time. Whether her voice is naked or drenched in harmony, she’s absolutely stunning.

Ethereal, beautiful music, with a blending of exotic melodies, world music-style compositions, pop and R&B all blend into Jessica Domingo’s evocative style. A nearly narrative singing style with a comfortable tone and timbre showcases Jessica’s late night lounge appeal just as much as it exults her pop chart and club appeal. The truth is she has a crossover sound that could truly flourish in many genres.

Like a mystical musical sprite from another universe, Jessica Domingo casts a spell with “Masterpiece” that is both a wonder and a treasured gift. It doesn’t fit in the box of any musical genre. It cleverly covers a wide range of musical styles which is a testament to Jessica’s artistry. She is unique, soulful, extremely talented, sincere-sounding and beautiful to boot!

Everything about Jessica is fantastic. Seek out videos of her singing on Youtube or listen to her blissful performance on “Everything Just Wasn’t Enough”. No two performances are alike, but all are innovative, expressive, and infinitely entertaining. This girl will eventually be a large-venue sell-out act.

‘Masterpiece’ has been recorded with multi-platinum Grammy award-winning producer Mikal Blue at Revolver Studios in Los Angeles. The single has already been released with an exceptional accompanying music video. This track will give you an amazing experience and is quite a treat for the ears…and the eyes!
