Gp: “The Bleach Tape” – best savored in your bedroom!

Gp’s latest release, “The Bleach Tape”, feels like the realization of a voice he’s been working towards: one that is both fluid and all angles, vacillating between naked introspection and pushing us as far away as possible. He is whittling away carefully at the tendencies he’s probably always had, remaining confident that he’ll light upon something that feels fresh and honest. He sticks to introspective territory His molasses-thick vocals roll through tongue-twisting wordplay, battling to be heard over his bass-heavy beats. Most of the album has this consistent sound of dirty, low-fi, grimy drum and chords. Gp seems to be dragging us

Me’Chell: “Live Out Loud” – ready to dominate the radio airwaves!

Me’Chell is a model, actress, singer and host, who has released her high energy club single “Live Out Loud”. This latest effort highlights the artist’s uncanny ability to craft a pop hook that will stay lodged in the listener’s head for days after, capable of causing a “repeat” disorder. Me’Chell vocals are melodic and distinct; her material is inspirational, endearing and relatable, carving a path towards stardom. While she gives a tight delivery on the touching verses, it’s the uplifting chorus of “Live Out Loud” that will allow this effort the chance to dominate the radio airwaves. It is a chant, a plea an invitation, to be the best you can be: “So let the breeze blow through your hair. Let the stars just take you there. You can be from anywhere. Just make a statement, and live out loud!”

Me'Chell

Me’Chell

And if you think that this is some superficial call to carefree hedonistic partying, think again. The lyrics come from a much deeper place, as Me’Chell herself explains: “Live Out Loud is a song about living life to your highest potential. It’s about how even though life can really knock you down at times and feel really hard, we’re meant to do what we love and “live out loud.” It’s an anthem that’s meant to inspire people to be who they are, be proud, and live happy and freely despite any hardships and curveballs life may throw at them. No matter who you are, where you’re from and what you’ve been through, you deserve to live the greatest life possible.”

But Me’Chell also gives a touching and personal insight of where the rudiments of this song come from. “I was a journalism and political science major, applying to law school and living a life that wasn’t truly fulfilling. My brother passed away in late 2013 which was not only a dark cloud in my life – that I thought would never lift – but it was also the moment where I asked myself, “life is short, who am I doing all of this for?”

Me’Chell finished the school year and decided to move to LA and pursue her true dream of being a singer. Despite the hardships she faced in life, she has still been able to smile and persevere in being who she feels she is meant to be, and now she wants to inspire others to do the same.

There’s one thing you can’t deny about Me’Chell: she is not your clichéd shallow female dance and pop singer blurting out hooks, and she has a most recognizable voice to match. “Live Out Loud” is a grower. Opening with tranquil production, surrounding Me’Chell’s calm and collective performance, the song quickly changes gears when the Top 40-ready chorus bursts through the speakers. The artist’s enunciation of some of the words on the lyric sheet, give the track the necessary dynamics, ultimately becoming an infectious and engaging, club-thumping, and inspiring anthem.

Add to the artistic package, her attractive physical attributes and her intriguing demeanor, which transpires through the video of “Live Out Loud”, and you can be sure that Me’Chell will continue to make a name for herself – not just because she wants to, but because she deserves to!
