Kaytlyn Cate – The New Single – “Making My Heart Feel Like”

Singer/songwriter Kaytlyn Cate hails from the picturesque Cascade Mountain range of the Pacific Northwest. Upon the release of her first single, Pitchfork called Kaytlyn “the alt-rock genre’s best kept secret”. Writing about the deepest emotional issues that belie youth and innocence, Kaytlyn’s lyrical work addresses the themes of love, hope, fear, hurt, heartache, and haunting insecurity. In addition to writing songs for other artists, Kaytlyn has been hard at work on her forthcoming EP, ‘The Blue Hour’, with producer David Samuel. Kaytlyn has been reinventing herself as an artist since her first debut. She felt Darkside was not representing who she

In the process of the breakup he begins to reminisce about better times yearning to turn the clock back. A real make up to break song that will have you feeling every single word. Ronnie is a perfectionist when it comes to his craft, with

Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Natalie Jean: “All I Want” offers up a perspective of love, fidelity and relationships

Authenticity is one of those indefinable traits that many artists search and pursue, but never quite find. You can’t build authenticity into a song through a particular gathering of words and phrases; you can’t swagger, pine or shout your way there. It just happens when you put yourself out there, daring people to listen, asking the audience to believe whatever your stories are trying to communicate. It’s an achievement that award winning, multi-nominated singer-songwriter, and Grammy voting member, Natalie Jean manages by never over singing, by using lyrical poetry that sounds like it exists now, as well as in a

Disembodied Existence: “Chapter 1: The Terrestrial Script” – jaw-dropping virtuosity

Disembodied Existence is a Progressive/Technical modern metal band composed of members from around Metro Manila, Philippines. Splendid seems a strange term for a metal-type band, yet it applies to these guys. Relevant expectations include harsh and melodic vocals, amazing musicianship, and tons of atmosphere. This review cannot do justice to the varied combinations of heavy and delicate, powerful and subtle, and always rumbling with energy. If you’ve slowly matured from your head-banging self, into someone who prefers something of much more quality and substance, then with this band you’ve got it. The first time I listened to their single “Chapter

“TOXSICK – Various Artists”  – a 3 label compilation by OMOIDE LABEL / FORCE RECORDS / MYORPH /

When you look at techno, the genre itself has a wide specter of sub genres, and that’s why you always need to dig a little bit deeper to find the true gems. Diving head first into the world of techno music can be daunting. Not only is there a rich history of distinct styles and scenes to learn, but there’s also an ever-increasing pile of must-hear new labels and artists to discover. Labels are one of the best ways to find great techno. Labels in these genres also define the genres, and define entire sounds and the artists that go

Long Island Native and 16-year-old Singer Alyssa Colón to Release “I’m Gucci”

LOS ANGELES, CA – Long Island, New York is home to 16-year-old singer Alyssa Colón. Since beginning her musical journey at age three, Alyssa has never stopped singing to her own beat. When asked about the inspiration behind her decision to pursue a musical career, Alyssa reflects on her relationship with late grandfather. A true musician himself, her grandfather would often play guitar, and eventually taught Alyssa how to sing along. This special bond is significant in Alyssa’s career, as it paved the way for her future in music.

As Alyssa’s grandfather continued to coach her, she began to learn the fabric of her own sound. “I continued to grow as a singer, and it made me want to do music,” said Alyssa. As she kept perfecting her craft, she also ventured into playing instruments, specifically with piano. This is a true reflection of the artist’s commitment to exceeding any boundaries, as the singer does not believe in limiting herself in her career. “Music means so much to me,” said Alyssa. “So many of my favorite artists, like Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, have impact on their fans through their words, and I want to put that kind of impact on others.” The 16-year-old makes it her mission to be somebody in this industry that fans and listeners can relate to and rely on for support. Through spreading light and positivity, she continues to do just that.

After her recent release of “Because of You” and “Blocking You”, she has been busy getting ready to release more music from her repertoire. Before the release of the single, Alyssa admits she had feelings of apprehension and nervousness, much like other artists, as she thought people might react in an unfavorable way. However, this was far from the case. “After the release, I received so much positive feedback. The song brought almost 8,000 hits on SoundCloud in the first week, and it was amazing to receive so many good comments and positive feedback,” said Alyssa. Seeing all of her hard work come to fruition was so surreal, and further inspired her to keep moving forward. She is planning to release her next single, “Sportyrich”, in addition to her upcoming project, “I’m Gucci”.

Looking to the future, the singer hopes to put a lasting impact on people who come across her music. She plans to go the extra mile to inspire people in the process, and do so much more than merely releasing music just to do so. “I love music, and being an artist in general. Putting out music is a different story, and though I plan to do that, I also want to help people,” said Alyssa. Through the positive message delivered through her meaningful lyrics, she hopes to brighten up someone’s day, day in and day out. Whether it is on tour or at a stop along the way, Alyssa’s desire is for her fans to feel comfortable relying on her through life experiences. Her musical style, which includes pop mixed with an RnB feel, is extremely versatile. Her overall artistic persona is something that sets her apart from the rest. “My music is going to be different,” said Alyssa. “I want to do a mix of things that other artists aren’t currently doing. I want to bring back the RnB vibe, and I feel I can do that with my voice and style of music.” There are major things in the work for this talented singer, and the sky is the absolute limit.
