He grew up in a small town in Vermont, and lived on the side of mountain three miles up a dirt road. Peter’s home was a beautifully renovated farm house from the 1700s. On a clear winter’s

Rahul Mukerji: “Ma De Re Sha” balances the obtuse with the accessible!

Rahul Mukerji is a ‘guitarist’s guitarist’ who revels in a self-penned musical hybrid shot through with intensity, precision and plenty of ethnic flavorings. His 11 track album “Ma De Re Sha” is a big sounding recording with enough of twists and turns to make Rahul’s solos sound both dynamic and interesting. The opening track “Exit 13” sets the outline tones of this collection of songs. It balances lyrical eclecticism with an Indian twist while his incredible chops help him forge his own style. There are plenty of incendiary guitar breaks and harmony guitar parts, but Rahul also demonstrates a lightness of

How long have you been performing and recording, and did you record or

Nega Blast X: “The Experiment” – this caliber and artistic conviction is required for this art to evolve

There’s really no words to describe the sound of Nega Blast X. The Burbank music arranger, author and digital artist, Dominic R Daniels, sole proprietor of the Nega Blast X project, is in a realm of his own and hardly many can touch that artsy creativity he has under the hood. Based in the trance, techno and industrial idioms since 2010, Daniels is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and The Mutaytor. “The Experiment”, Nega Blast X’s third album is released on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and all other major digital download stores. Artistically speaking, Nega

Tisabel: “GENRE HOPPING” bristles with energy and artistic audacity

Longtime Musical director and vocalist Tony Isabel aka Tisabel boasts an unprecedented skill set. He writes, arranges, sings, plays, and performs. He busts taboos, flashes unstoppable ambition, blends genres together like paint. Soulful ballads and funky grooves, ambient new age soundscapes, Hip-hop fantasy, and divine EDM devotion. For these qualities alone, he deserves respect. However, as you know, respect is also kind of a bullshit concept. Your favorite songs may not grace anyone else’s mixes; your favorite artists may not have ever left town. A century of recorded music has given us a galaxy of worthy tunes. But the gravitational

Lee Lee Lanea: “Basswhipped” resonates gloriously

Beats aren’t gendered. So why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to gender equality in the music studio? Women represent less than 5% of music producers and engineers. Yes, the music industry—like every industry on this patriarchal planet—is sexist. That is not news. But this means we’re missing out on a whole world of sounds, stories, and perspectives. Our culture has systematically ingrained this idea that technology is more of a man’s thing. Then of course there’s the fact that most men get freaked out when women do things better than them or even as good

Sha-La Music, Inc. announces the release of On E Street, a 4 song EP by US Rocker DownTown Mystic on UK Label Nub Music. The EP’s release date is December 1 and will be digitally distributed via ADA/Warner Music.

This puts DownTown Mystic in some very exclusive company. DownTown Mystic started as the alter ego of

Mobb Boss: “Lil Lady” – the depth, perspective and hunger of a performer

Being respected, revered and admired as an emcee is what often elevates a rapper from being one who merely strings together words that rhyme into an appreciated lyricist of the highest order. However, while there are a long string of spitters and scribes that have come along, the elite few who have found themselves mentioned in conversations and debates when discussing quality artists, have one thing in common: a track record of consistently delivering music that make the most of their lyrical abilities and serve as a piece of themselves. When speaking of today’s pack of underground orators, Mobb Boss

“All Your Bull” – A Politically motivated song from The Chile Colorado band

Rock band Chile Colorado’s debut album’s success at Rock Radio was a headline on the Newswire Jumbotron in Times Square, Manhattan, New York, across the street from the Hard Rock Cafe this month.

Jessie Wagner: “I Want To Dream” – Few can soulfully croon a love song as convincingly

Jessie Wagner returns, and boy do you need this track in your collection. “I Want To Dream” is the kind of quality R&B that brings a tear to the eye. Composed by P.M.B, the strong, emotional lyrical content of this song is a giveaway that Jessie, or perhaps her some of friends have been through a fair amount of dubious moments with the men in their lives. This is more than evident on this smoldering vocal interpretation. The jaw-dropping classy piano lead, the lyrical content, the production, and sheer power of the vocals, would suggest that “I Want To Dream” could do for Jessie what many ballads have done for our current multi-platinum selling divas.

This track is so pure, so strong and is a very rare jewel these days, considering how over-produced many tracks are. That puts this stripped down soundscape in a position to quite simply be one of the best R&B tracks of the year.

Few can soulfully croon a love song as convincingly as Jessie Wagner, but “I Want To Dream” confirms what many have suspected since the Virginia native lit up the scene at the start of her career: it’s when she’s digging through the emotional depths of a relationship that she dishes up her best work.

Jessie alternates between coasting and scattering through the narrative’s emotional uncertainties, tugging at her voice as if it was strapped to a leash, until it finally breaks free and soars. She is demure and charming, coming across as humble.

Jessie has the same just-below-the-surface sensuality of Aaliyah and the hands-on-her-hips sassiness of Monica, but she keeps it subtly hidden and allows it to gently unfold and engulf you. She sings love songs without a touch of smut and a generous dose of grown woman sensibility.

Jessie Wagner & Lenny Kravitz

Jessie Wagner & Lenny Kravitz

Exactly what you will hear on “I Want To Dream”. It appears to be the apex of Jessie Wagner’s growth as an artist and as a woman. And as she comes to harness the power of her femininity, this release proves that there can be few things as stunning to listen to as a woman becoming herself.

Much of Jessie Wagner’s life has been played out in the spotlight. Her career blossomed when her live performance caught the attention of Bo Bice, and she began singing and touring with his band, Sugar Money. She got another break after moving to NYC when renowned drummer Omar Hakim had her audition for legendary disco band Chic where she became one of the lead singers.

From then on Jessie’s career went on a roll and performances with A-league music stars became the order of the day:  Lenny Kravitz, Duran Duran, Chic, Stevie Van Zandt and Kid Rock were just the iceberg as she went on to perform with artists from all facets of the music industry, including Patti Labelle, Sir Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Sister Sledge, Musiq, the Pointer Sisters, Bebe Winans and Eric Bene among others. Jessie Wagner has also performed live at such prestigious venues as the Montreux Jazz Festival, the legendary Roskilde Rock Festival, and the Grammys.
