Recorded at Crawford’s Admiral Bean Studio in Loxley, AL, the album contains ten original compositions by founding group members Justin Patterson and Laura Lynn Danley. Additional musical contributions to the album were made by Crawford and 2020 Arkansas CMA “Guitarist of The Year” nominee, Buddy Case.

Summoning traditional Americana with subtle nods to other roots influences, Ten Penny Gypsy offers a free-and-easy album that thematically explores “the uncertainties of separation”, while developing the duo’s signature vocals with rich and imaginative instrumentation.

If it’s true that revelry and optimism summoned by passion, as well as love, can imbue music with a sense of power and buoyancy, then on “Fugitive Heart”, Ten Penny Gypsy proves that the antipodes of those sentiments can do the same. Regardless of each singular topic, the entire album is brimming with vibrant energy and upbeat rhythm.

It actually opens with three minute’s worth of heartfelt singing on “Making Headway”, against a backdrop of clean strummed guitars that comes with sweet harmonies, a Lap steel and a swinging drum beat. It’s all about the need to keep working on a relationship right until the end.

“Brick by brick, who laid that first brick? Who laid that first brick? Gotta stop building that wall before it’s too tall,” sings Laura Lynn Danley in “Brick By Brick”. It is a call to break though communicative barriers, before it’s too late. A common situation in many relationships gone bad.

The title track, “Fugitive Heart” is almost a consequence of the previous song. “Now the deed is done. The time has come, I must be on my way. I’ve got a smoking gun, and echoes I’ve left along love’s lost highway,” sings Justin Patterson. The soundtrack is wistfully awash with organic guitars, piano and strings. The vocals and harmonies, as usual, are sublimely beautiful.

“Highway 65” is another mid-tempo gem, with it soulful and mellifluous vocals, rich in imagery and nuance. Patterson’s resonant tones and Danley’s ability to sustain a note are in full evidence here. The duo’s harmonies, matching their very different vocals, are heard to superb effect, as on all the tracks they are performed on.

“I am weary, I am worn, and I’m just beyond the storm. The faintest of light shining down,” belts out Laura Lynn Danley on “Lovely Melancholy”. The song will immediately remind listeners of a musical era uncluttered by overproduction and dominated by home-grown soulful performances.

Ten Penny Gypsy’s contribution to their genre is the duo’s ability to not only use Americana’s roots but also ensure the legacy is musically active, and infused into whatever other stylings they may eventually venture towards, like the bluesy  “Road to Memphis”. This song will no doubt provoke involuntary head nodding and toe-tapping.

Patterson and Danley’s vocals once again form rich striking harmonies on “Lonesome No More”, which rides on a relentless chugging momentum. Ten Penny Gypsy’s ability to subtly blend harmonies, reaches a stupendous quality in the heartfelt “Train Won’t Wait For Me”. “Running down the back road, there’s a place I’ve got to be. I’ve a need to go much faster, the train won’t wait for me.”

Your True You” provides an unadulterated take of classic Americana without sounding conventional or uniformed. Ten Penny Gypsy’s harmonizing embodies intensity that melds into tranquility, as they advise that time is a healer of afflictions: “Though your life looks like an hourglass. Sitting there watching time pass. If you’ll hold on ’til the morning light. Everything is gonna be alright.”

Ten Penny Gypsy and the musicians involved in the recording of “Fugitive Heart”, are uniformly excellent, while the production by Anthony Crawford is superbly balanced and open, which allows plenty of room for the players and singers to express themselves. Together, they have tried to capture the vibrant performances of Ten Penny Gypsy in as much as a studio setting will allow. And succeeded blissfully!

Bagzamilleon is quickly becoming one of the best upcoming trap musicians http://jamsphere.com/news/bagzamilleon-is-quickly-becoming-one-of-the-best-upcoming-trap-musicians http://jamsphere.com/news/bagzamilleon-is-quickly-becoming-one-of-the-best-upcoming-trap-musicians#respond Sat, 21 Nov 2020 00:50:57 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43114 Artists who are trying to break into the industry know how hard it is to make a name for themselves. With the many emerging artists trying to make it, it’s a struggle to stand out from the sea of hopefuls. For many people, Bagzamilleon’s songs work like a shining light that attracts fans to its brilliance. Dominic Nicholson, who goes by the stage name Bagzamilleon, was born in Rochester, New York, where he lived with two brothers and two sisters. Though Bagzamilleon is quickly becoming one of the best upcoming trap musicians, his life wasn’t all sunshine and roses. He had to deal with a rough past, which includes an absentee father, expulsion from school, being homeless for ten years, and surviving a gunshot. He had to face tough challenges and harsh conditions due to street life. But through it all, it was his love for music that saved him. He refuses to let the past define him, and now he is thriving as an up-and-coming hip hop and trap artist.


He often talks about his life experiences in the music that he writes. When he was 13 years old, he wrote his first-ever lyrics titled “Why Pops.” The song was about his absentee father, and in it, he laments the fact that his father was never there when he needed him. When he was 23, he made a mixtape called “Ethel Street.” The mixtape contained lyrics about his life on the streets.

His music inspirations come from artists like Jay Z, 2Pac, and Biggie. He has their music to thank for getting him through rough times. But for his successful involvement in the music industry, he credits one man: renowned record executive and co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, Damon Dash. Bagzamilleon was introduced to Dame Dash through his friend Big Boostie. And before long, Dame and Bagzamilleon became close friends. This friendship gave Bagzamilleon a chance to connect with Dame’s team and other members of his inner circle.

Dame Dash introduced Bagzamilleon into the industry as a social media consultant, but Bagzamilleon’s music was too good to be ignored. So Dame gave him a chance in 2016 to work on a mixtape. There, he had the chance to work with people like Money League Boys, Big Bootsie, Dame Dash, and amazingly, Kanye West.

Since then, Bagzamilleon has gained a large following who can’t wait to support any and all music or projects he comes out with. And he has been busy with these projects. He just got sponsored by Popl.co to promote them, and he also made a tribute song to Nipsey Hussle called “Hussle for Nipsey,” and another one for Kobe Bryant called “Take a Shot for Kobe.” He also recently joined the label Five Star Empire to show the world what he’s got up his sleeve, aside from the projects he’s been busy with.

Recently, his new single “Luigi” reached 250,000 streams on Spotify in less than three months, which is a testament to how dedicated his fans are to streaming what he puts out.

Connect with Bagzamilleon through his Website, Facebook and Twitter. All his songs are on Spotify

Tom Pikete’s intoxicating fascination with parties and good times brings this record home, as it showcases Pikete’s colorful flow and spirit as a beacon in the dance movement right now. All across this EP, Tom Pikete proves himself more than capable of producing hit-styled dance music.

It’s clear that Tom Pikete is committed to creating music that is both danceable and authentic.

“El Diario Urbano” is a bright, powerful recording. It is a rhythmic and irresistible call to movement, self-expression, and passion.

An energetic and vibrant project, this EP is exactly what the dance music scene needed in such an uncertain time.

INTERVIEW: Israel based EDM Producer Madrow http://jamsphere.com/twentyquestions/interview-israel-based-edm-producer-madrow http://jamsphere.com/twentyquestions/interview-israel-based-edm-producer-madrow#respond Tue, 17 Nov 2020 20:30:32 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43100 Madrow is a music artist based in Israel. He is started his musical voyage and is trying to succeed at his own goals as an artist. Growing up Madrow discovered and listened to a variety of musicians and genres that have played an influential role in shaping his signature sound. Madrow seeks to offer something different and unique to the world by creating and performing original music that he can be proud of as his own.

  1. When and how did you get started producing music and do you have any formal training?

Madrow: I started creating music in early 2014, my friends exposed me to the dance music and since then there is an endless love for the genre.

  1. Where does the moniker Madrow come from?

Madrow: After much deliberation with the help of a very close friend of mine, Madrow is a combination of a few words. The roar of madness. Madrow (of course it can’t be like madroar, madrow is more catchy in my opinion)

  1. Who were your first and strongest musical influences?

Madrow:  I will not lie, ”Blasterjaxx”, ”W&W”, ”Hardwell” were the reason why I felt in love with a big room house and the EDM scene.
The first big room track I heard was ”Puzzle” by Quintino and Blasterjaxx and for a moment I was so shocked. For me, a simple guy who listens to oriental music, and maybe a little psychedelic trance, the big room was something that renewed me a lot, in my life and my taste.

  1. What do you feel are the key elements people should be getting out of your music?

Madrow: Oriental music, Sweeping atmosphere and emotions.

  1. What do you think separates you from the crowd of producers emerging right now?

Madrow:  My disease, (bloody tumor in the right eye called lymphangia) I have been fighting this disease since 4, and we have never found a solution, hope for the best because right now it is one of the biggest stones in my path in every sense of life. And of course my abilities, I’m not ashamed to say I know what I’m worth, but we all learn every day, and get better, each and every time.

  1. What is your process when composing a new song? Where do start, and what usually comes into your head first – the melody or the beat?

Madrow: First of all, a catchy melody, and especially integrating the oriental world into my music.

  1. What key ingredients do you always try and infuse into your music.

Madrow: Components like Kanun, Oud, and lots of other oriental tools. I’m still kind of looking for myself in this matter.

  1. Do you collaborate with other producers and artists, or do you prefer working alone?

Madrow:  Of course! I have collaborations, with really amazing artists and really professionals! But I will not be ashamed to say that I am more intent on working in solos, to avoid disagreements or any kind of problems, me against the world HAHA.

  1. Do you only create and work in a studio environment, or do you also find time to perform live? And if so, which of these two do you ultimately enjoy more?

Madrow: Right now I’m kind of still developing my ”studio”, working from the bedroom haha, and actually I got a lot of time to perform, but as I said before I have a disease to win.


  1. Can you tell us something about your latest music release and where fans can find it?

Madrow: My original stuff can be found on all platforms. ”Middle East” is my first song. The track I’m most proud of and the first time I found out my passion. “Corona”, a funny story that track was started during the first quarantine in Israel. And the total time I worked on it was barely two hours. ‘El Jah’ which means ”Hell” in Arabic (aljahim). Of course I do not have to explain the elements that exist in it, oriental music, regarding the name of the song I actually have something very deep to add. I also finished this track in the beginning of COVID19, where I felt that we humans are currently witnessing history, but also to a hellish period where people have no bread at home to give to their children, and from that feeling the title ”El Jaham” came out.

  1. Do you have a personal favorite track in your catalog that has a specific backstory and/or message and meaning very special to you?

Madrow: ”Scorpions – Still Loving You. My late father ;(, I remember myself as a child in first grade, my father bought an original CD of the above album, and without knowing too much about the meaning of the lyrics, (still I was a little child), I would hear them and get chills in my body, I think the musical side in me, came from my late father. The reason I know classical music is my father. And the reason I try to succeed in everything I touch, is also due to the untimely death of my father.

  1. Where do you do most of your recording, production and mastering work? And do you outsource any or all of these processes, or do you do it all by yourself?

Madrow: In my bedroom, all by myself.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your career or life so far?

Madrow: My disease, my romantic failures following it, and my father being the biggest loss of my life, we wanted to make up for gaps after years of not seeing each other and it was already too late, my lesson to you: be close to your parents and the ppl you love as you can. Everything should be suffice in life as long as possible.

  1. Could you tell us something about your current production setup, and what’s your favorite piece of hardware/software in the studio right now?


  1. What do you find most rewarding about what you do? And do you have a specific vision or goal set in your mind that you would like to achieve in the near future?

Madrow: Of course I have goals, almost like everyone else’s, only on a slightly different side. First of all, to defeat my disease, secondly, to start a family, to have children with a faithful wife by my side, to earn a decent living and leave a mark on the world.

  1. What’s your favorite motto, phrase or piece of advice, you try to live or inspire yourself by?

Madrow: ”people see the truth as they see fit. That’s what they call reality” As long as I live, and know who I am and what I am worth, and work on myself, everything else does not interest me in life, just move forward and succeed.

  1. In the time of social media, how do you handle criticism and/or naysayers in general? Is it something you pay attention to, or simply ignore?

Madrow: I’ve always had haters for some reason. Everybody can keep jealous, it all means nothing to me so I simply ignore.

  1. Finally, what’s your favorite pastime or hobby when you aren’t writing / producing / recording / playing etc.?

Madrow: Spending time with friends, family, I am one who is looking for thrills, that it can be used for both my good and my bad.

Scottie Armonie – A strong contender as one of today’s most unique female urban artists http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/scottie-armonie-a-strong-contender-as-one-of-todays-most-unique-female-urban-artists http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/scottie-armonie-a-strong-contender-as-one-of-todays-most-unique-female-urban-artists#respond Mon, 16 Nov 2020 17:05:34 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43086 Successful independent female rap artist Scottie Armonie is getting set to officially  drop “The Takeover EP” on December 25th, exclusively on Apple Music. The 27 year old Long Island, New York City artist is an ambitious creative and has her sights focused on major achievements in the game – from Grammy’s to Hollywood Films, and everything else she can picked along the way. Backed by her loyal and dedicated fans known as the “SCOTTIESQUAD”, she aims to make NYC proud. Proof that she is an all-round achiever can also be seen in the fact that Ashley J. Plummer AKA Scottie Armonie has signed up for fall classes at Hofstra University as an Economic Business Major.

Scottie Armonie is not only marking herself as an engaging artist with a confident attitude, but also one with her mind attuned to all aspects of the business. Scottie Armonie’s outspoken, witty lyricism and unmatched creativity will spark the interest of many, and it shouldn’t be long before the upcoming crown princess of hip hop starts taking over the underground charts, and aims directly to overthrow her peers.

The latest weapon in her artistic arsenal is the single “TMC”. Whether she’s channeling her slow-burning slumber or delivering an ultra-banging smash hit, Scottie Armonie never waivers. More so, she unveils layers of her usually untouchable self. There’s no question that she’s in control throughout her records. “TMC” is no exception to the rule. The track is creative, adventurous, and makes Scottie Armonie a strong contender as one of today’s most unique underground female urban artists.

Sol is an artist in every sense. He has been pursuing music since 2008, and also got into shooting his own music videos. His new single “Corner Boi” came about when a friend of his who produces (IRONCHEFWEEZ) sent him the beat. R. Sol usually starts freestyling to beats to build up momentum on a concept.

Released via THE UNDERDAWGS imprint, “Corner Boi” was made to talk about those in the streets glorifying and hustling narcotics. It’s all fun till you get pulled over. Once R. Sol had the concept locked in, he called his buddy JOEL over to vibe, and he laced a verse and the rest is history. They shot the video the same night the song was recorded.

‘Sorry Not Sorry’ – The Must-Listen Hop/R&B EP From Briawna! http://jamsphere.com/news/sorry-not-sorry-the-must-listen-hop-rb-ep-from-briawna http://jamsphere.com/news/sorry-not-sorry-the-must-listen-hop-rb-ep-from-briawna#respond Mon, 16 Nov 2020 11:26:23 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43075 With an immersing voice and unique delivery, Detroit-born and Youngstown-raised, Hip-hop/R&B songstress Briawna, returns with her latest message-heavy EP “Sorry Not Sorry,” to mesmerize and captivate listeners. The seven-track project features atmospheric beats, catchy melodic elements, vibrant instrumentation, and alluring vocals. From the soothing “Faded” to the self-empowering “Voicemails,” Briawna delivers melodic bliss combined with lyrical depth across the album.

“Sorry Not Sorry” deals out intriguing lyricism, embellished with the artist’s sharp wordplay, powerful statements, as well as the melodic soar of her voice. The recording is a showcase for her singing and songwriting skills, which merges R&B, rap, and hip-hop elements seamlessly into one infectious blend of soul-stirring substance.


In her new record, the intrepid Briawna is more lucid than ever, and her songwriting navigates a plethora of themes. At times she’s somber and contemplative, as on “Die Again” and “Faded”. Then she’s playfully self-aware, and super-sexy on “Hoe Anthem”. “Issa Witches World” and “Python” brings her raw combative spirit to the table. The title track “Sorry Not Sorry” is a slow-burning, self-empowering anthem, while “Voicemails” delivers another deeply reflective rumination.

Packed with high-production standouts, in some ways the EP, “Sorry Not Sorry”, feels like a cathartic cleansing.  Beyond the superbly structured arrangements which fortifies Briawna’s nuanced vocals, the through-line of this soul-searching mix is the singer’s razor-sharp focus: her ability to dissect her own vulnerabilities and strengths with cutting, incisive songwriting – all whilst retaining ear-catching sensibilities.

There’s something mantric, almost self-affirming about the songs on “Sorry Not Sorry”. Moreover, there’s an emotional maturity that’s palpable across the entire record, as Briawna’s re-invigorates her sonic template with cutting edge lucidity.

Mr. Reaper – “Thru The Dark” – Creativity and consciousness over ambition http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/mr-reaper-thru-the-dark-creativity-and-consciousness-over-ambition http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/mr-reaper-thru-the-dark-creativity-and-consciousness-over-ambition#respond Mon, 16 Nov 2020 02:09:37 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43070 Mr. Reaper is a furiously talented new hip-hop artist from Woodbridge, VA, who sounds like an absolute rap legend – or rather, someone who has been shaping soundscapes longer than anyone else in rap, creating complex, layered sonic contexts for his deep-thinking narratives. If you’re just looking for some beat and rhymes that you can nod your head to, his songs could work just fine. But it’s designed to do so much more than that. Each song he writes, is linked to an intense theme, which Mr. Reaper dissects and attempts to reckon with, in total honesty and integrity.

Our initial meeting with Mr. Reaper’s music occurred with the single the single, “Thru The Light”, released on July 4th 2020. “The light portrays mental and self-growth. An evolution or a rebirth in my character,” explained Mr. Reaper, continuing: “The light side is mainly seen in a positive aspect. It teaches us the ability to heal and improve ourselves and situations. When we have that epiphany, we are ‘thru the light’. We understand what needs to be done to improve our outcome and then we take action on it.”

Next we encountered the single “Down The Road”, which Mr. Reaper himself described as a song that “focuses on fighting a losing battle called life and embracing it with the passion of living life to appreciate it’s worth.” Mr. Reaper’s verses treaded with integrity as they went from blunt confessions, to references of the human experience, on how to do better in this life that constantly feels like a losing battle.

Now Mr. Reaper takes his study of analogies and contradictions one step further on “Thru The Dark”, the brand new single, which is the direct antithesis of “Thru The Light”. “The song paints a picture about a side that displays unwanted vibes, aggression, and loneliness,” explains Mr. Reaper. Thru The Dark displays having no fear, no emotions and being your own enemy as well.” Both songs will form part of an upcoming EP.

As complex and challenging as Mr. Reaper’s narratives sometimes seem to be, one thing makes him positively traditional: he takes the art of rapping seriously. You get the feeling that Mr. Reaper’s knowledge of his medium is key to his ability to produce a well-rounded listen. “Thru The Dark” is incessant and purposeful in its momentum. The track pushes Mr. Reaper’s flow, to mimic the extremity that’s in his words.

When you look at the rap landscape, there’s no-one quite like Mr. Reaper’s. Whether it’s his voice or his lyrics. He’s an artist who defies all traditional hip-hop tropes and expectations. Most importantly, he wants to make music that has a lasting impact. Rather than churn out dime-a-dozen party anthems, he is unafraid to sit down and really focus. Creativity and consciousness over ambition, seems to be Mr. Reaper’s motto.

Treading his own path has led him to create records that have the potential to last and not fade away. “Thru The Dark” once again shows that Mr. Reaper is a rapper who pushes things further, digging deep into his experiences and themes.

Rich, deep, full of wit, rapid fire lyrics and a fantastically lavish production, “Thru The Dark” really captures an unusual trip, where not everything dark is negative. In fact darkness often is a necessary aspect in balancing the yin and yang of life’s experiences. “Thru The Dark” offers pretty persuasive proof that, in terms of rapping pedigree, there aren’t many better than Mr. Reaper at this point.

Buggzy Hoffa of Black Diamond Mafia has released his new single “Pray On” http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/buggzy-hoffa-of-black-diamond-mafia-has-released-his-new-single-pray-on http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/buggzy-hoffa-of-black-diamond-mafia-has-released-his-new-single-pray-on#respond Sat, 14 Nov 2020 22:31:42 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43055 Buggzy Hoffa of Black Diamond Mafia has released his new single “Pray On”, a song talking about the world and what is going on at the moment. An infectious tune that will have people bobbing their heads to a song about what many are facing at the moment. This song is a departure from his normal path of wine, women, and song. It gives a deeper look into the soul and heart of this man who from first glance appears to be only down for the normal rapper shenanigans. Being in the industry for 24+ years teaches you a thing or two to say the least. Buggzy Hoffa is a native of Brooklyn, New York. Originally Brandon Wilson, who describes himself as a geek that attended Holy Rosary Elementary School and John Dewey High School in Gravesend, BK, never graduated and never got his GED. He has, however, been in the entertainment industry since the age of 6.

He was an extra on the infamous The Cosby Show, where his dad was a stage manager. Given his dad’s ties and his siblings’ connection to the music industry (his brothers being Rameses Wilson aka. ‘Trill Cosby’ and Charlie Wilson), it was only natural for H.E.R.U. to continue pursuing entertainment. Pursuing film is still on the agenda and he intends to write, direct and star in his own film, but music is taking the leading role in his life.

Buggzy Hoffa

With a huge repertoire of business endeavors under his wing such as Real Estate, Waste Disposal, Crypto Currency, Stocks Trading and Personal Management, Buggzy still finds creative expression through, not just music and arts, but in all his business ventures. In 2010, he owned award-winning speakeasy, Dutchkills Bar, and in 2012, PKNY Tiki Bar in NYC. He’s no stranger to venues and the event industry scene.

A thirst for creative freedom is what inspires Buggzy Hoffa. His characteristics of being hard to read, mysterious and egotistical, but with a heart of gold, somewhat explain his strong dislike of barriers and control schemes. He strives to remain a free man amongst other entertainers. Creation is something Buggzy is in love with. “Being creative with other creators is spiritual,” he says. As he lives up to that creativity, Wilson was a published writer for #1 Standalone comic book Gekido vs. Code Name: Justice vs. Ravedactyl featuring Coco (Ice T Wife) in 2018.

Passive no more, Buggzy has come to learn the value in aggressively pursuing one’s dreams, without compromising compassion. Pursuing dreams is what Wilson continued to do, in early 2019 Brandon was played by him in the infamous Friday the 13th Vengeance movie and later became a character in the official Friday the 13th Video Game (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC). With the success of these ventures under his belt, music remains the most passionate one of all.

Brandon founded and introduced the world to his group Black Diamond Mafia in 2019, an American hip hop group formed in the New York City, his borough of Brooklyn. Composed of Entrepreneur Rapper Buggzy Hoffa, The Rockstar Jai-ho The Golden Child, Boastful Trill Cosby, Charismatic 2CaNn and The Wavy Mr Tony Blu. The group took the industry by storm with their debut single “Superfly” in September 2019 that spilled into a stream of success and followed with their follow up single ‘Fire Hose That’ hit 1 million views on YouTube, charted Top 50 iTunes Hip Hop Singles and Digital Radio Tracker Top 10.

After signing to Eric B Music Group Sony Orchard in September 2020, his single ‘Head Bussa’ trended at 27 in the Top 50 Hip Hop R&B Spins in October 2020. The momentum continues to soar as Buggzy Hoffa sets to debut his solo single ‘Pray’ in November 2020. Be sure to listen and look out for Buggzy on the air, stage and the big screen again soon.

UK singer-songwriter, Chris Kelly, set to release 5 song EP titled, “AII the Places You’ve Been,” available December 1, 2020 http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/uk-singer-songwriter-chris-kelly-set-to-release-5-song-ep-titled-aii-the-places-youve-been-available-december-1-2020 http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/uk-singer-songwriter-chris-kelly-set-to-release-5-song-ep-titled-aii-the-places-youve-been-available-december-1-2020#respond Wed, 11 Nov 2020 11:48:16 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43007 Chris Kelly is an established singer/guitarist and songwriter from Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. He released two albums with his band The Scooters at the turn of the century and had a professional music career in the US after they signed to LA based label Aeronaut Records.

Chris has had his songs used for commercials and countless MTV and BBC productions. Being a Scooter brought highs and extreme lows due to the premature death of best friend and lead singer Anthony Carey.

Chris stepped back from the limelight for a few years, but a recent creative explosion has brought him back to the surface with a sack full of new tunes and a forthcoming album on the horizon.

Being a solo musician is an entirely new experience. A more mature, married and wiser man, no longer tempted by the lure of wild LA parties and romantic encounters with nurses from Blink 182 album covers (that’s a long story).

Chris is writing songs that mirror the world around us, tackling subjects such as depression, drug abuse, love and narcissism. Chris was devastated when band-mate Anthony Carey died, and decided to re-release one of Anthony’s favorite singles, “Paperback,” to raise money for 2 Wish Upon A Star, a charity close to the family’s heart.  The single reached number 1 on the iTunes UK charts.

Chris Kelly also runs a successful company called Rock Academy Wales, inspiring young people to create music.

J.Maurice Drops the Sexiest Video of 2020 with His Smash Hit “You Got It” http://jamsphere.com/news/j-maurice-drops-the-sexiest-video-of-2020-with-his-smash-hit-you-got-it http://jamsphere.com/news/j-maurice-drops-the-sexiest-video-of-2020-with-his-smash-hit-you-got-it#respond Tue, 10 Nov 2020 18:19:33 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=43000 With an addictively rhythmic flow and dangerously melodic chorus at the forefront, Topeka, Kansas-based Hip Hop pioneer J. Maurice raises the bar to some serious new heights with his newest smash single “You Got It.”

“The sexiest thing about a girl is her hustle,” boasts J. Maurice in the visual YouTube intro of this track, and “You Got It” falls right in line with that concept masterfully. Combining a neurotic flow that is reminiscent with industry heavyweights from the 90s, J puts down the flow like a tidal wave on this track with crafty versatile lyrics that are cleverly executed among its caliber.

The chorus is massive, melodic and has that vocal structure that will easily leave you with goosebumps. The dexterous rhythm is formulaic and embraces the minor key beat structure that brings an erotic aura to the song’s duration. It’s a perfect track for mainstream radio but could still easily shine among the indie underground spectrum.

The production value is right on point and really showcases J. Maurice strongly and diligently. Delving into a signature sound that is charismatic and multifaceted, his delivery on this single touches effectively on equal parts originality and familiarity; giving the audience a visceral listening experience that is fresh yet still identifiable.

If you’re a fan of artist pros like Usher, Ne-Yo and Biggie, then this track will definitely be a draft pick for you. The track is accompanied by a colorful music video which also really encapsulates the essence of J. Maurice‘s vibes and atmosphere.

This single is one of many successful releases for the rising established artist, but it truly raises the bar for his career altogether with the insatiable lyricism and execution of quality this song offers. High expectations are set for him now that he will be pressured to deliver content on this level subsequent to this single, but we have no doubt J. Maurice will hold it down without issue!

If this song isn’t an indication, you can’t deny the musicianship factors and raw talent that J encompasses when he hits the mic – and we have no doubt you’ll feel the same way when you take a listen to “You Got It” yourself. You can find the Single on YouTube, SoundCloud, and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll be putting this one on repeat!
