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 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

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.

About Dalal:

Dalal’s passion for acting, singing and modeling began in Austria. A certified musical and artistic prodigy, she learned to play both the violin and piano by age four and started composing her own scores at age five. At age nine, she attended the Mozarteum Master Class Chamber days in Oberschuetzen, Austria and later toured with the Leoben Musical Orchestra through Austria and Germany during the summer months of 1999 till 2004.

Before long, Dalal’s penchant for the stage came to rival her musical ability. After winning the Austrian Actor’s Award as a child, for her performance in a stage production of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Dalal was accepted into the prestigious Broadway Connection Performing Arts Academy in Vienna. She held lead roles in performances of Cats, Starlight Express, and Elisabeth, which were performed in Vienna, Munich and Berlin. Dalal graduated from Gymnasium (High School) Hartberg (Styria) and went on to study Musical Theatre, English Literature and Art History in Vienna. There she also started playing with the Vienna University Orchestra and began her work with the European Voices, with whom she performed at the United Nations and throughout Europe.  In addition, Dalal was a special guest soloist for the Vienna International Gospel Choir, and recorded a Christmas CD with the Vienna University Orchestra.

Equally passionate about working behind the camera, Dalal attended the SAE College for film, with a focus on 3D Animation, Visual Effects and Editing. During her studies she directed and edited videos for MTV, Sony BMG, and Soundpool TV. Dalal has worked as a visual effects artist for the Los Angeles based visual effects studio Mechnology on such hit series as “90210” and Disney’s “Sonny with a Chance.” She has since starred on television shows such as “Soko Donau”, “Tatort”, and “Spring Waltz,” and has appeared in various commercials, and feature films in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, and South Korea.

“A call to reinvention and finding your better self, the singer repeats the earworm phrase ‘I’m not a victim, I’m Superman,’ against a spiky guitar solo. Delivered with the conviction of a host of daring divas that came before her, you can’t help but believe the lady.” –   MTV Iggy
