Midwest Hiphop duo Strangers Of Necessity drop their new single “Abundance”

Strangers Of Necessity are an American hip-hop duo, based in the Midwest, consisting of prolific producer, CoryaYo and veteran lyricist, Fooch the MC. They linked via Twitter and quickly became friends, sparking an immediate chemistry and need to make quality music together; hence the name Strangers Of Necessity. They instantly began recording music and doing shows locally, generating a nice buzz in the area. Their sound is best described as a fresh take on that golden era of hip-hop, blending tasteful jazz and soul samples, crisp snares, boomy kicks on wonky patterns with a soulful delivery, dense schemes and potent

Kilo M.O.E. – ‘Fly G’z and Palm Treez’ – serves as the perfect canvas for the rapper’s elite lyricism

The Baltimore-based producer, songwriter, rapper, Kilo M.O.E.’s evolution over his past three albums has been inspiring to see. I’ll always admire artists who push themselves creatively, and that’s exactly what, Kilo M.O.E. has done on his fourth studio album, ‘Fly G’z and Palm Treez’, and it pays off in leaps and bounds. Each instrumental is rich and developed, serving as the perfect canvas for the rapper’s elite lyricism. Something that this recording and Kilo M.O.E.’s recent albums have done well is allow him the freedom to rap for the sake of his craft within the confines of the album’s larger

Jim Wyly – “You Took Me” – It’s rhythmically tight, warm and edgy

Texas singer songwriter Jim Wyly is back with another soul-stirring track from his “The Artisan” album. Over 40 years deep into his craft, the Austin troubadour sounds like a home-cooked meal. He deals out comfort food for the head, heart, and soul. All of this serves his finely drawn guitar lines, bourbon-stained-like vocals, and funky acoustic-driven grooves as thick as molasses. A subtle blend of blues, country, folk and southern rock runs right down the middle of “You Took Me”. “Musicians’ musician” is an overused term. Why wouldn’t anyone with two good ears appreciate Jim Wyly? As Jim doesn’t cater

Hanen Release Brand New Video For The Song “Breathe”

It’s never been easier for artists to stay independent. Of course you can get good music producers, good visual directors for videos, good rappers and good singers to feature on your track without a great budget, but you have to search the world over to find deals you can afford, or convince creatives to work with you. Texas born artist, now living in the LA area, Hanen, somehow got it all together on his latest track called “Breathe”. He sings soulfully and raps with an urban edge all by himself, backed by an atmospheric slow-burning, and ear-warming beat made by

Angry B – “Hey Corona! (Nice to Meet Ya)” – reflects the realities with a good dose of wit

On his latest single, “Hey Corona! (Nice to Meet Ya)”, underground music hobbyist Angry B pinned his rap skills and dark wit, to the sounds of mainstream pop and a funky EDM template. He blurs the lines between genres with the top of the charts — and only the top — in his sights. As can be deciphered from the song title, Angry B pulls his aspirations from the dramatic Covid-19 disease hitting mankind across the globe. “It’s one of the most critical situations we’ve had and there will be a lot of sad stories connected with it,” says Angry

Izzie’s Caravan – “Leo’s Guitar EP” – an understated guitar virtuoso

On the recording, “Leo’s Guitar EP”, Izzie’s Caravan and his guitar conspire to use every single crayon within the blue color box to deliver one of the best underground independent studio blues releases I’ve heard this year. Among others, Izzie takes his cue from greats such as Lightnin’ Hopkins, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, and Eric Clapton. So you can expect a wide and wholesome finger bending spectrum of sounds. The aforementioned guitar heroes are points of reference, not simple deductions for resemblance. The opening song, “Two’s In The Bush”, has a highway drive, and jangly timbre that’s upbeat and

D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Donny Richmond Continues #1 Success With “Statue Of A Fool”

Multi-award winning international recording, movie and TV star Donny Richmond is now an inductee of 4 different music Halls of Fame. His recent starring role in the movie, “Saving Faith”, released by media giant Lionsgate Entertainment, earned him a nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film from the International Christian Film Festival. Cameo appearances in the film were made by several of Donny’s fellow artists, including Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Michael W Smith, members of Rascal Flatts and The Gatlin Brothers, Olympic skater Scott Hamilton, and many others. Donny is highly respected among his music peers and fans alike, with numerous international chart entries in country, gospel and pop music.

Donny Richmond & Dolly Parton share a laugh during a TV taping

Yet with Donny’s new single, his genius ironically continues to flourish while he is enshrined as a “Statue Of A Fool”. The music video, now seen on YouTube, was filmed in Donny’s native Tennessee, and in Hollywood, California. It incorporates footage of Dolly Parton’s tribute statue, and the Oscar statues located on Hollywood Boulevard. However, the statue of Donny depicts a sad superstar “who let love slip through his hands”.

“Statue Of A Fool” was originally a #1 country hit for Jack Greene in 1969. Ricky Van Shelton revived the song in 1989/90, taking it to #2 in the U.S. and #1 in Canada. And now, Donny’s version – newly released, and available on iTunes, is said by music industry insiders to be the most dramatic and captivating rendition to date.

In March 2020, Donny’s version has DEBUTED (first week out, International Airplay Express Charts) at #1 on BOTH the multi genre POP Charts AND the traditional COUNTRY Charts. These Charts have never had a DOUBLE DEBUT at #1 before!! And Donny’s “Statue” has reached #1 on Google Play as far away as South Africa. Known for his super strong vocals and extraordinary range, Donny has certainly lived up to his reputation with this one.

Initially, hearers of this recording speculated that this was perhaps one of Elvis Presley’s lost recordings from the 1970’s, with a new, modern instrumental backing. But we are told that this recording is by the one and only Donny Richmond. It is, however, interesting to note several similarities between Elvis and Donny. Like Elvis, it has now been established that Donny Richmond is a “natural actor”.

A new movie role and new TV series are in the works for this amazingly versatile performer. Donny’s career took off in the 1990’s, approximately 15 years after the beloved Elvis Presley forever “left the building”. Of course, Elvis’ popularity has never waned, and in 2015 Donny sang what was called “the ultimate Elvis salute”, in a song written by Donny and David Walker of Nashville, entitled “The World Keeps Loving Elvis”.

This recording featured the largest collection of Elvis Presley’s musicians ever to back up a singer with a different name than Elvis Presley. For the video, which can be seen on YouTube, Donny wore a suit and jewelry known to have been owned by Elvis Presley, and used one of Elvis’ Cadillac cars. All of the famed musicians are seen performing in the song video.

Donny Richmond is perhaps known mostly for gospel music, although his songs have also shown up for over two decades in various international country and pop charts. Another interesting similarity of Elvis to Donny is that Elvis, although he was known as “the king of rock’n’roll”, stated that his favorite music was actually gospel.

Donny’s successes in this field have produced a long list of awards including Artist Of The Decade, Entertainer Of The Decade, The Living Legend Award, and numerous accolades for categories including Male Vocalist Of the Year, Songwriter, Producer, and Top TV Host.

In addition to its #1 status on various international charts, Donny’s new “Statue Of A Fool” single has reached #6 on the MPE Pop/AC Charts for its U.K. and Ireland release, and is climbing the European Hotdisc Country Top 20 during its first week of availability.

Other activity includes the song’s current rise on the Australian Country Airplay Charts, the Ramgatie European Charts, and its release in the U.S. in late March, 2020. To accompany Donny’s release, an outstanding new line dance, entitled “The Statue”, has been written by renowned U.K. choreographer, Gaye Teather.  Download Free “Statue” Line Dance Stepsheet Here (Cool Dance, Easily Learned!) https://www.copperknob.co.uk/stepsheets/the-statue-ID140408.aspx

Donny Richmond is coming on strong. During the past year alone, Donny has enjoyed NINE #1 CHART HITS on the international Airplay Express Charts, representing various parts of the world. With his new movie and TV series in the works, Donny Richmond’s career is soaring. His beautiful new rendition of “Statue Of A Fool” is catching on big time. Hey! – maybe Donny’s not such a “fool” after all!
