Busola Martins: “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes – You can hear the passion and her intention

“He turns my life around”, with these words, Busola Martins whets our appetite as we are led with bated breath into her new release “Pleasant Surprises” ft. Bukola Bekes.  With her ingenious use of simple questions and quotable phrases, she challenges us on a mid-tempo cliff hanger to re-access our relationship with Jesus. Precisely because Gospel thrives on its spontaneity, it has often traded lyrical sophistication for its immediacy.  This is not so with this track. Saved without being sanctimonious, and heaven-aspiring while remaining down-to-earth, when it comes to conveying ministry within her music, Busola Martins handles the load with passion

Weston Simonis set to release “Yoga Pants” video on Thanksgiving

For those who’re still unfamiliar with Weston Simonis and his wide range of musical styles, this is a very special talent. A native of the Grande Ronde Valley, Weston is difficult to pin down to one or two genres. Some might say he’s all over the place. I say he has the special ability to play Blues, Rock, Funk, Metal, Punk and any progressive thinking crossover music at will. Listening to his award winning album “Moments Of Intoxication” has reminded me that there was a time when you could hear all types of artists on the same radio station. Now

Jay Felicite: “758 Stories 2” features killer hooks and irresistible melodies

When thinking of England as a musical landscape, Dancehall may not be the first genre that pops to mind for people not in the know, but it’s there, under the surface of the streets, the thump of the drum and pop of the bass reverberating into walls, and spilling out under the doorways from dub clubs and roots bars. One of the current underground stars of the UK’s indie circuit is probably Jay Felicite (pronounced; Fay-Lee-See-Tay) is a Saint Lucian born and raised singer, songwriter, sound engineer. The resilient firebrand is making a big noise with the release of his new

P Bailey: “Story” forges its all-embracing prowess

Originally from the UK, P Bailey is the man known with the 5 octave range. He had his first taste of musical inspiration while taking part in music class in grade school and then went on to be influenced by the  Motown and Muscle Shoals sounds. With no formal training Bailey developed his singing and writing style by listening to his favorite artists of the day, such as Ron Isley, Donny Hathaway, Luther Van Dross, Michael Jackson, Prince and James Brown.  P Bailey had his first break when Rick James used a sample of his song ‘Part time Lover’ on the sound track of the movie Colors, from then on he has been called up to do to studio work and many features, as well as successfully releasing a charting EDM single called ‘Get on Board’ which went on to reach #3 on the House Dance Charts in the UK.

Now on his latest upcoming 10 track album entitled “Story”, P Bailey digs deep and goes back to some of his funk and soul roots, with the tracks being mixed into cutting edge Club and Dance themes. The album kicks off with the funk infused “Kick My Bottay”, which is as close as dammit to being the best track on the entire project. A rumbling bass line, sweet harmonies and a steamy melody will propel this tune into your sweaty mindset on first listen.

“Underrated” features forceful and distinctive singing and the piercing tone of the horn-like keyboard as well as delectable percussion flavorings. “Find Me Somebody” (Sava Boric Mix) has an eclectic Earth Wind and Fire feel in the falsetto harmonies and insistent forward-motion beat.

The Pop and RnB affected “Mystery” (Sava Boric Mix), switches its emphasis to the modern-day auto-tune twisting, which will go down a bomb with the club crowd. P Bailey steps up the heat and tempo with “The System” (Funky Euro Mix), without losing the groove or melody he holds so dear in his arrangements.

The title track “Story” forges all its electronic prowess in the beat, while P Bailey piles in multi-layered offbeat vocals. On “Free” he switches the vibe to an old school piano-driven, mid-tempo melodic croon, again filled with P Bailey’s usual trademark harmonies.

Dense and raw, “Beautiful Urban Mix” is that creative funk-soul-pop mix, you would have expected from the genial mind of Prince. Finally “Melody” brings us to P Bailey’s soul-food – the ballad – which sounds like a cross between Earth Wind & Fire and Akon, as it brings old school melody together with new school vocal effects. The album closes with the electronic banger “Day Dreaming” (Club Mix).

This album title may go above and beyond, but “Story” is definitely music that makes you want to move and groove. And P Bailey’s smooth, lilting tenor takes you all the way there. Impressive as it is, this album is just the latest chapter in P Bailey’s busy, remarkably resilient musical life.

He is an old-school artist that keeps himself relevant with modern music but still keeps it classic at the same time. Class and classic sounds go hand in hand when P Bailey is on the mic.  I’m already waiting on the next album, and this one hasn’t even come out yet!

The album “Story” by P Bailey aka Paul Bailey is now available on Pre-order over at iTunes.
