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

Midxnite – “Emotionless” – fluid, hypnotic heartfelt strokes

Midxnite, whose real name is Yusuf Salim, grew up in a South Asian family. The Phoenix-based artist credits singing traditional melodies with his family as his introduction to music and says it provided him an easier transition to contemporary R&B and Hip Hop. The artist, whose previous releases, “Live and Learn” and “Look at My Whip”, have accumulated hundreds of thousands of plays on streaming platforms, recently dropped his latest single, “Emotionless”. Recorded at HKStudios in Phoenix, AZ, the song narrates an afflicting and burdensome moment in the artist’s life when he believed the binding sacrament of matrimony was in

TK Mac – “The Living Room” – a laid back, yet intensely emotional feeling!

Christopher Bell: “Rust” combines beautifully written songs, passionate vocals and soulful instrumentation

Whether you’ve heard of Cellist and multi-instrumentalist Christopher Bell or just stumbled onto his cello which emotes into the worlds of Blues, Funk, Folk and even Carnatic influences, do yourself a favor and buy “Rust”, the new album by Bell. Beyond music – it is an artistic masterpiece. Go lay down in a field at night with your headphones, stare at the stars and listen to this album. The emotional range is beyond words as is the organic instrumentation. Besides Christopher Bell’s electric cello, you will hear brass, a string quartet, baritone guitar, upright bass and drums.

Apart from interpreting Howlin Wolf’s “Smokestack Lightning”, Bell writes simply and beautifully – he’s not using words that make little sense just because they rhyme, nor is he trying to impress you (but this is the very reason he does impress). He tells such vivid stories that you feel as if you are right there watching the scenes unfold. His simplicity is so refreshing that this is will become one of my few go-to albums when I come home from a long day. He also has a distinctive and compelling style: somewhere in the spaces between Tom Waits, Patrick Sweany and Andrew Bird, among others.

Christopher Bell

Christopher Bell

Christopher Bell combines beautifully written songs, passionate vocals, and soulful instrumentation which has plenty of that back-porch warmth nobody can quite do anymore. The energy coming from the music on this album is visceral, seductive and intoxicating. But seriously, you do not need to read words about Bell’s music. You need to hear it. For those who have been waiting for a young musician to take roots Americana and Rock music into the new world, creating their own style and feeling, this is the one. Do not wait. And get ready for a very long career to unfold before your very ears. Certified and guaranteed.

It seems like the music scene has been starving for real talent these days. You could listen to all of the auto-tuned drivel out there if you are willing to settle for sub-par schlock, or you could move your mind and soul on to songs like “Darlin’ I Am Fine”, “Path Back Home”, “Gone Gone”, “Kiss Me”, “Weather The Storm” and “Skeletons”, by Christopher Bell.

Christopher Bell can play the cello like a beast. Using various pedals he layers and distorts his electric cello and shines while so many other cello players of our time are still working out ways to better employ this instrument into modern music. This guy is getting it right where others haven’t even started trying yet. His hooks are memorable and catchy enough to get stuck in someone’s head but Bell never forfeit’s his talent while still being completely relevant.  The gritty intensity of the production and the diversity of styles on “Rust” show that Bell is willing to be a completely relevant artist today, without having to compromise his craft like so many others.

Christopher Bell is the type of artist to not put into any box. His talents should be left to its own devices, so that he can start his own quiet musical revolution to delight true music lovers and shake up the airwaves once again.
