INTERVIEW: C.E.N. – the voice of the people

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and currently a resident of Dallas, Texas, C.E.N’s natural proficiency over poetry allowed him to produce meaningful and profound lyrics. Although he initially took the initiative to become a music artist for fame and fortune, he later realized that all he desires as a musician is to be respected and valued for the art he brings to the table. His music is deep lyrically and spiritually. Can you tell us a bit about where you come from and how you got started? C.E.N.: I was born in Oklahoma City, OK, and was raised in a

Hitrocker – “Project One” – breathtaking sound design!

Hitrocker is a German based producer who creates mainly within the EDM subgenres of House, Electro and Deep House. His first album, entitled “Project One” was released at the end of July, while “Project Two” is also out now. When I clicked on the playlist of “Project One”, I was met with song titles that were merely numbers – such as “Project 1.1” or “Project One.Four”. This falsely led me to expect generically themed instrumentals, simply meant to rock the dancefloor. Wrong. Well not totally. They do rock the dancefloor. But they also do a whole lot more. These are

Rashod Holmes Announces New Single ‘The One’

Rashod Holmes is known for bringing romance to life with his evocative voice, but he has never told as personal a story as the one he tells with his latest single. ‘The One’ is a true life love story that acknowledges the struggles and triumphs that go into building a long-lasting relationship. “I found the one for me” Rashod sings. “She is the girl of my dreams.” While Rashod is convinced that he has found the perfect partner, there is much more

Billy Ray Rock – “Get The Funk”- hitting up all the classic tenets of funk

Washington State Singer-Bassist, Billy Ray Rock, plays more than 10 instruments and produces and performs every instrument you hear in his music. From Rock to R&B and Dance, Billy delivers them all. His single “Get The Funk”, simply adds another delicious flavor to his sonic menu. His unearthly bass chops, resonant vocal wobble and inner funk DNA is scorching hot, while it straddles the genre’s trademark grooves. Blaring horns and slapping drums accompanies the party-styled adlibs, as the track treads its momentum. If you’re looking the glossy high-tech dance-club funk perpetuated by bands like Chromeo, then this is not the

Vincent Krennerich – “Verlassene Stadt” – plenty of delicate aural color

Vincent Krennerich is a composer, songwriter and pianist from Germany. The artist, who has featured on our pages before, has released his double-side single, entitled, “Verlassene Stadt”, which translated, would mean ‘abandoned city’. The second track, contained in this set, is called “Morgengrauen”, which in English, would mean ‘dawn’. However if you heard these compositions, there would be no need to translate them, as Krennerich’s music describes itself rather poignantly. Though stripped back and basic solo piano, the key to the success of both these recordings, is the propensity Vincent Krennerich has in composing subtly fine melodies. Both tracks have

Hybrid Blues fuses stellar musicianship, heartfelt songwriting and soul-stirring vocals

The record not only showcases Roy’s abilities as a singer and a songwriter, but also highlights the wide range of influences that have impacted on his music. The album takes you in so many different dynamic directions that it can feel a little dizzying, while the

Marshall Artz Productionz – “Go Missing” ft. SeanQ – is incredibly hypnotic, with crystal-clear production

Released Aug 28th, “Go Missing” Prod. by Marshall Artz Productionz, is the producer’s 3rd single release since June. The track will be featured on his upcoming 2021, self-titled LP “Marshall Artz Experiment”. The song features singer-songwriter SeanQ, from Dallas, Texas. The producer’s blend of R&B-inspired neo-soul and smooth chill sounds becomes its own entity within the hip-hop and urban music world. Marshall Artz Productionz work should gain high appraisal through its colorful and subtly amped vibes that play to any genre lover’s ears alike. After listening to this track, I expect that the outpouring of demand for more of the

After attempting to be part of band on numerous occasions, Evie finally opted for a solo career. Her first solo project, the 3 track EP “STARGIRL”, has its title inspired by the first song she ever played live.  It is a tempered and exceptional record.

Free From Gravity: “To Launch Debut Album In London”

Rock act Free From Gravity are bringing an innovative style to the music market with a fresh take on what a hit album should sound like. Comprised of a well-known group of seasoned veteran musicians, they are no strangers to playing amazing music. Headed by front man Vince Barnes on lead vocals along with members of legendary 70’s groupWishbone AshMuddy Manninen on lead guitar and Bob Skeet on the bass guitar. On the drum kit is Paul Newton who has quite the resume playing along with Prince, The Marionettes and Mungo Jerry. With this powerhouse lineup, the new album by these musicians is slated to be nothing short of a hit record.

The group was formed by Vince after seeing the Eagles perform on their 1994 “Hell Freezes Over” tour when they played Wembley. This amazing show had inspired him to live his own dream of playing in front of 10,000 plus fans, all singing along and having the time of their lives doing it. With a lot of hard work and passion for the pure sense of making a great record Free From Gravity has formally announced their debut album performance. On the 30th of June, they will take at the stage at London’s famed Monto Water Rats to share their dream with their fans and of course you!

The band would like to formally invite all music lovers, as well as media to come join them for this special not to be missed performance and be part of an event that is sure to be talked about for the rest of the summer.

A preview of the song, entitled “I Have A Dream”, which we heard (or rather watched) on Youtube, covers a wide kaleidoscope of rock sounds. It is a hybrid mix of Beach Boys vocals, a 60′s rock n’ roll back-beat, chunky guitar riffs from the 70′s and a lead solo straight from the 90′s stadium-rock era. The sound production and calibre of musicians playing on the recording, guarantee peek quality performance. We’ll have to patiently sit back and wait for the EP release in June to savor all the songs put together by Free From Gravity.

Judging from this first song release, the only hurdle this music may have to face could be due to it’s particular genre, which clearly appeals to old school rock n’ rollers like myself. In this day and age of electronic samples, beats and loops, the band might encounter some market resistance from the younger ‘Hiphop beat-generation’. But these boys have been around long enough to know that already, so I’m certain that they’re up and ready for battle. Along with all us battle scarred rock n’ roll warriors, still desperately hanging on to all our nostalgic flower power dreams from the past!

You can check out the band’s YouTube channel to watch their music video for “I Have a Dream” (http://youtu.be/VIihF78iKk0) shot by Sean Cronin, who was the lead singer ofThe Marionettes, who scored not only a top ten hit in the U.S. but in Germany as well. Sean has also worked with industry mega-stars Tinie Tempah and NDubz as of late. With names like this involved in Free From Gravity you can be sure that this should be a must see date on your calendar.
