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

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

MAZE – “From Start To Perfection” – a grand symphony of alternative and melodic rock abrasion!

Gary, Paul, Jack, Lee and Sam make up the 5 piece band from London UK, called MAZE. The band started out as a recording project, but the response and reaction they received induced them to start gigging and they have since been offered plenty of gigs for 2020. In the meantime they have released their 4 track EP, entitled “From Start To Perfection”. The recording is a rich quilt of guitar-driven sounds and rock influences. What’s thrilling about the production is not only are the clear punchy sonics, where each instrument is captured at its most resonant – but there’s

Adam Wendler: “Never Go Unknown” – crafting an expansive array of songs

Combining soft finger-picking with hard strumming, Adam Wendler is an indie-folk-rock singer-songwriter from Goderich, Ontario. A former band member with the Fermented Oranges, who released 3 rock oriented albums, Adam released his first solo album in 2016 while spending his time travelling and busking around Europe and even New Zealand. For latest album “Never Go Unknown”, Wendler travelled to Costa Rica to write the songs. He has recently been touring in Germany after winning the ‘THE NEXT BIG THING’ in Berlin.

On the evidence of his 17 track sophomore album, Adam Wendler has the voice and the talent for song craft that would justify a place among those at the top of the singer-songwriter pile. Wendler’s soaring delivery shimmers on “Never Go Unknown”, a fine LP that represents a clear progression from his previous release.

From the opening acoustic notes of “Deep Water” to the electric flourishes of “It Feels Right”, until the closing swing of “Canadian Country Man”, Wendler evokes something ambiguously potent. There are a lot of sensitive singer-songwriters about. It’s a crowded genre where you could put all the reflective and introspective boys with acoustic guitars and heartfelt lyrics onto a roll call and fail to tell them apart.

Adam Wendler, however, seems like one of the brighter and distinctive propositions in his field – plenty of virtuoso acoustic picking and strumming and a line of sway-along balladry and upbeat foot-tapping that inspires not just murmurs of appreciation but full-blooded response. Add to that a full range voice that can reach for the higher notes with ease, and you’ve got something appetizing on your musical platter.

Wendler has plenty ear-worm material, and if you don’t believe me, instantly check out “As Steady As The rain Falls”, “The Man With the Loudest Thoughts”, “Something in the Air” and “Into The Night”. These sound like James Taylor at his grooviest best. In fact, “Into The Night”, could comfortably sit on any mainstream radio chart, with its driven beat and hooky singalong chorus.

But don’t fret singer-songwriter lovers, Adam Wendler can also pull off those beloved heartrending introspective tracks which he does so beautifully on, “Anything at All”, “Never Go Unknown”, “Follow Me Down” and “Play for Keeps”, among others. His lavish guitar picks and sweeps are redolent of the genre, while the pensive yet propulsive melodies arouse and embrace. But all the while Wendler’s lithe vocals come to the fore, leaving their indelible mark.

There isn’t a moment wasted on the record, and as it swings to a close, it’s clear that Adam Wendler has put together a captivating album in the shadows, crafting an expansive array of songs that build magnificently on his debut. “Never Go Unknown” is a superlative follow-up album that will stake Wendler’s place as one of the finest singer-songwriters currently around – be that on the indie or major label roster. Usually artists are in a position whereby they are always going to be struggling to emulate a debut or previous effort, but Adam Wendler not only managed to match his previous release, he’s actually bettered it!
