“Ocean” by Lara Lova, is an emotional inspiration, and a dedication to all living things.  It’s creamy and huge, coupling the beautiful character of her voice with a pulsating production of gentle euphoria. The explosion of the choruses hit like golden sparks showering from the sky – one of many well executed pay offs which prove that her ambitions are well warranted. Lara Lova greatest strength remains her wistful, wood-windy voice. It has natural charm and raw emotional relatability, which plays well against the electronic production and the track’s sheer desire to be a colossal hit.  Music is a

Dubgee – “Truth” is a prime example of how much of a dedicated artist he is

Doug Tree better known as Dubgee is a rapper, producer, beat maker, and label owner, from Vancouver, Canada. As an old school hip hop head, I’m so thankful that I stumbled on to his latest album “Truth”. Dubgee is a genuine artist and a true musician. Whether the media pays attention or not, at this point there are enough people who can hear the truth – we are witnessing one of the more versatile artists in the genre. Dubgee’s inner confessional memoir style is reminiscent of Eminem. A style that creates descriptively terrifying wordplay, but refrains in his subtle and

And if you find that slightly out of the ordinary, wait until you see the video clip created by PB art-director Elina Pasok. “Australia is on fire, the Amazon is burning,

Dave Vargo: “Burning Through” – The melodies hit you on a physical level

The album “Burning Through” by Dave Vargo clearly deserves a 5 star rating, but just I want to get my two cents worth in there anyway. If you’ve listened to Vargo at all, you’ll know that he is an amazing song writer and an even better lyricist. Musically, the album runs the gamut from pensive, slowed down numbers to upbeat Americana and Country gems. Perhaps even more impressive than Vargo’s songwriting abilities, are his lyrics. The man is a keen observer of life with an impeccable ability to put into words what it’s like to be, at the risk of sounding cliché, human.

I can honestly say that this album will get more play in your rotation than almost anything else if you have an affinity with this genre. These songs are deep, rich and polished. Dave Vargo wears his influences proudly on his sleeve, and I hear echoes and subtle traces of everybody from JJ Cale to Ryan Adams to Bruce Springsteen to James Taylor and Jackson Browne in this set.

A native of East Brunswick, NJ, Dave J. Vargo started playing the guitar at the age of eight and by 14 was performing throughout the tri-state area with various jazz, funk, and rock bands. He graduated from Berklee College of Music with honors and went on to become a touring sideman and session player. He has had the privilege of working with a number of notable talents including Whitney Houston, Phoebe Snow, Vonda Shepard, and Rupert Holmes.

Dave currently performs both solo and as part of an acoustic duo simply called Kim and Dave. He is also an active session player and songwriter. His debut album, “Burning Through”, was released in October 2016.

Honesty, fresh, storyteller and genuine – These are a few of the words that come to mind when I hit play on the first track,  “Come Take Me Home”. Dave Vargo is songwriter who writes songs that hit you on multiple levels.

The melodies hit you on a physical level and just a few days in to listening to this album on repeat, I found that I carried them with me throughout the day. They weren’t just playing through my head, they were living within me.

Vargo is a wonderful storyteller and though his stories may seem ordinary at first blush, the underlying themes are universal and heady material to tackle. His ability to use simple, straightforward everyday language to communicate complex ideas is remarkable and rare. This is a trait you will also find in the works of artists such as Ryan Adams and Lucinda Williams.

This is particularly evident on the tracks “Finding My Way Home”, “Too Young To be Broken”, Twisted and Bent” and “Don’t Think Twice”. Dave has put his words and feelings so poignantly into these songs that you can feel the emotions of every note, chorus and guitar lick. Of course when he wants, Dave Vargo can bring his musicianship to the fore.

Something he promptly does with his guitar on “Good Enough”, “Waiting”, “Right Now” and “Pieces Of My Heart”. Vargo is singer and songwriter who hits all the right rhythms and mood notes: edgy Americana, soulful country, and many surprises throughout. To me, Dave Vargo is a master craftsman in his field of competence and this 11-song set unequivocally cements that stature.
