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

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

Music For Songwriters – A complete service for Topliners

Jan Helge “Janco” Nes from Kristiansand, Norway, is a resilient character, with an ardent fervor for making music, and a knack for helping fellow artists achieve their goals. Janco was a retired keyboard player, songwriter and producer who had to quit because of health problems years ago. However thanks to medical care and painkillers, he is now back on track to pursue his passion. He has launched a site called musicforsongwriters, with the intention to help singers, lyricists, and melodists to compose and complete their songs in blazing fast time. How? Janco provides a complete premade musical backing track. All you need to do is add the lead vocal, harmonies and whatever embellishments you believe will push your song to the next level, and the job’s done!

The process is more commonly known as ‘toplining’. As the website explains: “A topliner is someone who writes lyrics and melody to existing music.” An absolute peculiarity of musicforsongwriters, as opposed to its competitors, is that while other music providers’ “royalty free music” is copyrighted by someone else, the music on musicforsongwriters, is 100% self-produced and therefore can be licensed to be used in this manner. The music can also be used as background music on YouTube etc. These tracks will make your music clean and perfect. It makes them sound expertly performed.

The website has a vast music library to choose from in various music styles. You can purchase single tracks, or you can even purchase diverse bundle deals, including their whopping entire catalog at stunning discount prices offered by musicforsongwriters on their music library pages. You can obtain legal licenses to these tracks there and then get to keep 100% of the rights to the finished song(s) you produce, no matter how many sales or streams. It’s really that simple my friends.

Once you purchase the music and rights, you can add your voice or instrument to the premade backing track, and you are ready to publish it to the world. Furthermore you can publish the song(s) in any way you see fit since you own 100% of the rights. Yes, you can do exactly as you want.

Upload it to YouTube, sell it on your own website, or commercialize it on other music selling platforms. It really doesn’t get easier than that for singers, lyricists, and melodists to get their songs out there in the cheapest, fastest, and most hassle-free way possible.

Jan Helge “Janco” Nes has really done a sterling job in offering a much needed service to fellow singers, writers and performers. This really is one of the quickest, cheapest and problem free services of its kind I have come across on the web.

Not satisfied, in their quest to convince artists of their goodwill, musicforsongwriters is now offering (for a limited time period only!) a crazy bundle deal which includes a complete music library of 222 songs – which has a market value of $4428 – for only $97!! The tracks in this set are made available in the highest MP3-quality (320kbps), and are ready for download now!

If you’re still here reading this, and haven’t shot over to musicforsongwriters to check out the service and deals for yourself, you’re wasting precious time in moving ahead of your competitors and getting your professionally completed songs out there to the crowds now.
