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

Damian Sage – It’s impossible to listen to “Drive” without being genuinely moved

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

Lyrics Of Two: “Summer Song (Hey, Hey)” – lyrical poignancy and a catchy sound

Founded by Los Angeles born, head songwriter and poet,  who is classically trained in piano and has a degree in Sociology from Mount St. Mary’s University, Lyrics Of Two have established themselves as accomplished lyricists, songwriters, and composers. Marie Helen is a member of the Songwriter’s Guild Of America, and has had an interest in creative writing from a very early age. From the acoustic pop of “Mysteries”, to the gritty, rhythmic Americana rock of “Streetlights Are Spotlights” and onto the life empowering anthem “Let’s Make This Earth From House To Home”, Lyrics Of Two have never failed to impress.

Marie Helen Abramyan

Regardless of which musical road they choose to walk down. Their latest Country-styled feel-good summer anthem, “Summer Song (Hey, Hey)”, once again penned by Marie Helen, is a work of music I can listen to over and over again. Beautiful lyrics and music, uplifting and touching.

Lyrics Of Two’s Marie Helen seems finally to have got over herself and down to the business of writing a hit song for themselves, instead of dealing their compositions out to other artists. The result is a splendid homegrown organic track. It promises to endure as a mile marker in this project’s career, to say nothing of the annals of good listening.

Marie Helen places the chord transition exactly where it releases the listener’s attentive energy. Then she passes the lyrics through some wistful memories of places and relationships that cast their expectations forward into destinations that eagerly await to turn inspiration into emotion. The lady sure knows how to score a song.

“Life lost it’s spark in the everyday traffic / We had to get away to bring back the magic / Packed foot flops, summer tops / Sunscreen and cutoffs / And we headed right on down, to this laid back little beach town / Warm winds blowing, ocean waves flowing / Just you and me baby cabana bound / Nothing on our minds but laying out / Chillin’ to the rhythm, the audio / To that sweet summer jam on the radio.”

Now can you imagine a better summer scenario than that? The vast majority of the performers today can hardly be called artists, so their work isn’t art. That isn’t true of Lyrics Of Two. The music is beautifully written, and the words are amazing. Imagine that – music where the words are the focal point. Something that is lost in the heavy beat and bass laden world of today’s music.

The single artwork

To experience the magic of Lyrics Of Two just listen to “Summer Song (Hey, Hey)” and you will get the idea why I am singing praises about them. The vocals are spot on, his melody superb and the arrangement brings you back to the good singer-songwriter style where substance and not the number of explicit words count.

Marie Helen does not preach but she does deliver to you some of the most articulate and impassioned tunes. Her songs have heartening messages to them and are far from hard to listen to. And the music does not stay in one set mode but ranges from Folk to Pop and Country and nearly everywhere in-between. No matter what mood you’re in, she has a good song in her catalog for you.

Helen Marie is a poet who knows how to write the human condition into songs more than anyone else I can think of currently, just off of the top of my head. “Summer Song (Hey, Hey)” just puts a smile on my face and reminds me of many summers spent with the one I love.

Sitting somewhere between the Americana lyrical poignancy of Jackson Browne and the airy, chart-busting crossover pop sound of Pat Monahan and Train, everything about the music here is beautiful. I expected nothing less from Helen Marie and Lyrics Of Two.
