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’

The soul singer relives how he met his wife and started his family on a tender new song. 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

Out of Aotearoa (New Zealand), Hybrid Blues are a 4-piece band, made up of Mike Everard (guitars, vocals), Adam Pendred (bass), Mark Schaumann (drums) and award winning front-man, singer-songwriter Roy Hudson.

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

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. It shakes, rattles and rolls with minimal, almost absent percussion, a dominantly strummed acoustic guitar and occasional keyboard interludes. Above all, is Evie Calabasas’ voice, which delivers an untethered, sweetly

Post Trauma Lay It On The Line With, “I’m That Guy”

A couple of months ago we reviewed and praised the great mix of Country Rock, Bluegrass and Straight Rock, from Fullerton CA’s Jagermeister Sponsored band, Post Trauma. Now the boys are back with the brand new video release for the song “I’m That Guy,” from their latest album, “Sleepless.”

This song’s really cute! It’s a tongue-in-cheek tribute to all of those boys in the band out there. Post Trauma lay it on the line in a fun way, telling all the girls what its like to fall in love with “a guy in a band.” Grab a taste of the devilishly naughty lyrics. The first verse and chorus goes something like this:

“If you’re looking for a family
Girl, that ain’t me
If you’re looking just to settle down
Hun, you’re barking up the wrong tree
If you’re looking for a house with a picket fence
a SUV and a couple of kids
It’s better if i introduce you to one of my friends
‘Cause I’m the guy your momma told you about
The one that wants the milk, but not the whole cow
I’m the guy they warned you of
The one that wants your body, but not your love
But if you want to go out with a guy in a band
and if you want to do it in the back of the van
and get drunk, get high all of the time
Like everyday was Saturday night
Oh yea, honey I’m that guy…”

With every new release, its is always a step forward for the members of Post Trauma, and never a step backward. Here on “I’m That Guy,” the band display their ease with constructing a hand-clapping jukebox hit. This is catchy country-pop music that gets feet tappin’ and voices singin’ along; it’s music that provides a happy melody to the lives of their fans and casual listeners alike. Yet once again proving, that whether it’s songs about having a good time, long lost love, suffering or faith, Post Trauma know how to provide music for any occasion. They’re probably one of the most versatile and talented indie bands in country-rock music today! What is really propelling these guys to the top, though, is their ability to write and choose songs that really speak to everyone.

On closing, Id’ just like to state, that its obvious the boys like performing on video, as much as they enjoy making music. On “I’m That Guy,” Billy Ulrich, Joey Gnoffo, Sean Boddy and Kenny Ulrich seem to be having one hell of time!

In fact…too much of a good time. So my advice would be; “Fathers, lock your daughters away…unless of course, you don’t mind them being in a back of a van on a Saturday night, with Post Trauma.”

I will remind you however, that these guys only want the milk and not the whole cow, and to make matters even worse, they are…”SLEEPLESS.”

Guess whose gonna be up all night!
