Irish DJ and producer Moorhouse has dedicated the song, “I Love You to the Moon and Back”, to his daughter, Abbie. It speaks about their relationship and what the future holds.

The preconceived notions of what a KonQuestNow (VerseBorn & Wreck The Rebel) track is going to be like are plentiful well before you even press play. This has been a boon to their career, in what has become a viral habit of either hating or loving something based almost solely on your own personal internet culture and what your daily feed prompts you to feel about a certain subject. The collective’s name has become synonymous with great lyrics, superb beats, and originality.

Stori Brooks: “Parachutes” – a potential for greatness

Stori Brooks has been a lot of things in her career: producer, poet, conflicted rapper, scenic storyteller. While her versatility keeps her afloat, it’s tough to get a bead on exactly who Brooks is and what she stands for—is she the conscious backpacker or the straight-talking street girl? She embodies the urban alternative, and she’s working on an album, to be entitled, “EVERYTHING IS GR8”, that offers her full narrative. The first single, “Parachutes”, taken off the upcoming album offers insight into her essence, finding the rapper at her most reflective. Maybe she’s assessing her current status and how she

Samantha Bouquin: “Contemplations on Solitude and Strings” – highly expressive

Connoisseurs of experimental or avant-garde chamber music may already know of Samantha Bouquin’s inventive and entrancing sounds. This is music of great integrity, startling vitality, and striking originality, yet it is virtually unknown outside the cult following that has appreciated these ingenious compositions. A cross between homespun classical populism and the sophisticated experimentation of the avant-garde, Bouquin’s music follows in the iconoclastic tradition of forward thinking composers, but with its own frank expression, exuberance, and wayward charm; yet it is also accessible to the casual listener in the directness of its material and the clarity of its techniques, no matter

Shannon K: “Perpetual” – an impressive collection of songs

Shannon K is a 16 year old singer who was born in India and moved to London at the age of 6, but not before initially appearing on stage at just 4. Her father, Kumar Sanu, is one of the most decorated and award winning vocalists in Bollywood history. Shannon has studied music from the Royal School of Music, London. At the age of 6, she had the honor to perform a classical Indian dance, Kathak, that she learned growing up at the Bollywood Awards’ night, US. She released her first solo song in May 2014.  Shannon released her first solo song in 2014 and has just released her full-length album “Perpetual” on May 5th, 2017. She has also recently been chosen as Voice of the Month by B4U UK.

It’s not only the consistent songwriting clout that elevates this album from recent efforts by her teen-star peers. The messages of love and empowerment feels honest coming from Shannon K. Obviously she has the pipes, but does she have the force of personality at her age to pull it off and be fully convincing through her songs?

We have an answer of with “Perpetual”, which she pulls off with no featured help. Shannon is technically perfect, and can tease, flirt, love, and lose as well as anyone in pop. You think there’s something missing, something like Beyonce’s sensual ache or Rihanna’s raw hunger?

Do those seem like unfair comparisons? Yes they do! Dealing more in lust than in any other emotions, the aforementioned stars probably shouldn’t be her projected artistic peers right now.

And in fact she has a much more pristine image which matches her music and her own projected personality to a tee. “Pretty Eyes” opens the album, and it’s perfectly suited to her strengths. Twinkling keys and A plucked bass create a woozy backdrop for her swooning vocals.

The way she flips from verse to chorus is subtly breathtaking. Listening to slow burning ballads like “Running” and “I Believe”, you get the sense that Shannon K spent her days and nights not just at work on this album, but on considering her position in the ever-shifting popscape, because her willingness to push her artistic boundaries is what yielded the growth showcased on this impressive collection of songs and enables her to continually exceed expectations for a 16-year-old diva-in-training.

By the time we get to the upbeat tracks “Alive” and “So Good”, Shannon K is hitting full stride and is on cruise control most of the way here, her voice effortlessly caressing the musical arrangements within a flavorful festival of danceable rhythms.

She leaves the best for last though, with “Slow Down” being the most fleshed out track on the album – this is a club certified, dancehall-induced banger containing all the elements necessary to smash up the summer scene.

And while it may take some potential child stars years and years to build a bridge from simple teen talent to fully matured artist, Shannon K carefully avoids ever wasting too much time in one role; instead she seems to be consistently adapting her persona to her age along the way. This young lady is in “Perpetual” movement towards stardom!
