In the seventies, British Glam rock (or Glitter rock in the USA), and subsequently Hair metal, added a splash of color and sparked a different kind of cultural evolution – thrilling music, the spectacle of identity, dressed up in spectacular costume, and a frizzle of provocative sexual tension. Unlike their predecessors, glam rockers, didn’t want to change the world; they wanted to escape it, creating an out-there performance-art theatricality. Glam rock’s brief imperial phase at the start of the 70s may have passed quickly, like all of the best popular music movements do, but those flamboyant rock funambulists had left an imprint on the imagination of future generations of musicians. Just ask current Glam rockers, Love Stallion.

Love Stallion began as an experiment; a spur of the moment co-write of the song “Big Rock Radio” by Aaron Hart & Crayton Huntly (aka Rob McLemore) outside a concert hall in the fall of 2013.  Inspired by the “big rock” sound of the 70s & 80s, the duo enlisted the help of industry pros Dr Scott Martin & Kate Emerich, “Aaron Hart w/ Crayton Huntly” played their first show May 1st, 2015 at The Walnut Room Denver.

With the addition of Aero X (aka Aero Marquez) joining on bass, the band became recognized for their high energy live performance, as well as flamboyant wardrobes of sequins, spandex and leather. Love Stallion’s ‘Unforgettable Ride’ album was produced by Steve Avedis (Tony Bennett,*NSYNC) at Colorado Sound Studios and was released on June 2nd 2018.

‘Unforgettable Ride’ is so full of great hooks, great riffs, great tunes, great melodies, it is absolutely a joy to listen to. While this album is chock full of rockers, not to be overlooked, is the gripping heart-felt ballad “Valentine”. These dudes have obviously studied their craft, spent the required time on their instruments and then some. Pop it in, turn it up, press to play, and enjoy. It’s really that simple.

Opening with “Slow Release”, which struts in on a chugging head-banging beat, Love Stallion unleash their rock prowess – from vocals to instrumentation. Confirming that they are no parody or caricature, but the real rocking thing for the new ages.

The cowbell drives the intro of “Ignite the Night” as Love Stallion pump up the volume and turn on the harmonic heat with driving basslines and strident vocals. This is the freshest, most original and most fun rock band in years if not decades. Great guitar work and a pounding rhythm section push “Big Rock Radio” to the fore, once again forging a powerful melody and huge harmonies.

“Lazy Summer Dream” brings a moment of respite, before the song explodes into a thunderous wall of sound, and then goes full circle again. The riff heavy “Hide Me Away” is a perfect showcase for the intense, high register vocals and tuneful lead guitar solo.

“Tinker Toys” shows off plenty of chunky riffs, repeatable lyrics and choruses hewn from the very bedrock of the Earth’s largest mountains, before introducing the mid-tempo ballad, “Valentine”.

Slyly, Love Stallion leave the best for last, so you go away from the album infused with blood-pumping Adrenalin. “High Time” and “Trans Am” deliver high energy rock of a classic caliber, overflowing with all the goodies necessary to give any rock n’ roll fan a back-to-back sensation of explosive eargasms.

Lachlan Grant Splendor: “Fathers Second Son” thrives in his sheer musicality http://jamsphere.com/reviews/lachlan-grant-splendor-fathers-second-son-thrives-in-his-sheer-musicality http://jamsphere.com/reviews/lachlan-grant-splendor-fathers-second-son-thrives-in-his-sheer-musicality#respond Tue, 12 Feb 2019 15:44:43 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=34409 New Zealand born singer-songwriter Lachlan Grant Splendor is a talented musician and a strong songwriter.

New Zealand born singer-songwriter Lachlan Grant Splendor is a talented musician and a strong songwriter. His songs create an atmosphere that is unique without seeming contrived or pretentious. I can understand why Lachlan has yet to break big internationally because his talents don’t fall easily inside the defined boxes the music industry marketing machines like. He is a bit eclectic like Dave Matthews in that sense, though there are obviously meaningful artistic differences between the two. From the outset his latest single, “Fathers Second Son”, taking off the album “The Choice Is Yours”, sets a rhetorical tone for a reflective song that contemplates the difficulties of finding the real you within yourself – the search for alliance in family and friends, the confusion and distractions of maturing, the restless spirit breaking free, and the disquieting sense of maybe falling short.

Along the way, Lachlan Grant Splendor externalizes a kind of inner madness while his imagery remains suitably poetic.  It’s not simply the exorcism that Lachlan puts himself through, but rather the feeling that he will come out of the process stronger.

Running just over three minutes, the song’s raging, and harmonically-driven guitar picking, acts as a catharsis to the lyrical laceration of the verses. Lachlan never loses his sense of melody, and this track thrives in his sheer musicality, be it agile finger-picking, hammering striking harmonics, or delighting in rich and dark melody. It’s hardly an easy ride, but it’s eventually a satisfying one.

Lachlan’s strident and tension-filled guitar plucking imbues the song with the sense of a forthcoming crescendo, in an attempt to build towards a euphoric feeling of acceptance and understanding. Every note trickles off Lachlan’s’ fingertips from his acoustic guitar, each drum beat is like a heavy boot landing on a dirt-covered rock, kicking dust up into the simmering heat.

The complexities and nuances confronted on “Fathers Second Son” are all too relatable, which places it starkly at the forefront of Lachlan Grant Splendor’s lyrical accomplishments as well.

As the music world seems to indulge itself more and more in the new rift of sounds developing through electronics, folk stands as a resilient genre, stubbornly un-willing to be pulled from its deep roots.

Folk flourishes in its ability to strip away everything but vocals and chords – it relies heavily upon the strength of a voice, lyrics and passionate expression. It’s no surprise then to find Lachlan Grant Splendor here channeling his sound board and placing its strength in the ideas and conventions of the genre’s roots.

“Fathers Second Son” is the sound of Lachlan Grant Splendor doubling down on the ambiance and the emotion, creating a collage of moments both fleeting and everlasting while choosing the art of the craft over the simplest path to accolades. It may take more time to appreciate, but it’s a masterclass of songwriting and performance.

Flo: “Mix in a Water” – a multifaceted sonic landscape that warrants close listening http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/flo-mix-in-a-water-a-multifaceted-sonic-landscape-that-warrants-close-listening http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/flo-mix-in-a-water-a-multifaceted-sonic-landscape-that-warrants-close-listening#respond Mon, 11 Feb 2019 23:41:10 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=34384 James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.

James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His signature style combines diverse musical elements and genres together to create an immersive listening experience. The rich mixture of delicate sounds, booming basslines and silky, chopped vocals will keep listeners coming back for more. His latest single is “Mix in a Water”. Is there any way to describe the music of Flo other than stylistically shimmering, and rhythmically hypnotic? Not really: write down those words and free-associate as much as possible with eclectic and luscious, and chances are you’ll have written Flo’s press blurb.

The Flo sound is one of silky sunsets, shuffling hipsters and swinging groove. It’s also irresistibly good, which might explain why Flo has no need to mess with the formula that will most likely win him some serious accolades in the near future.

Savvy enough to give his fans exactly the tones they’ve been hoping for, Flo blends vintage organic sounds against a welter of modern electronic elements, all of it crisp and gorgeous. At the same time he is clever enough to add spice where it’s needed, edging his smooth and dynamic beats away from New Age or simply ambient, and into something more engaging.

Taking listeners on an expansive and otherworldly journey, sound-tracked by an eclectic amalgam of what appears to be analog sounds, electronic synths and live instrumentation. It’s a progression that feels natural, organic, allowing listeners to see not just the evolution of the music, but of Flo as an artist.

Flo finds a niche wedge between warm, smooth and sometimes intentionally jagged arrangements, together with the electronic sophistication of Northern European composers. In this sweet spot, he treads a fine line between soothing chill music and multifaceted sonic landscapes that warrant close listening.

He is primarily driven by rhythm, texture and mood, rather than by melody. On this release his mindset surfaces in the darting layered horns and smooth vocal adlibs that form the melodic core of the track. The stop-start rhythm is no afterthought, as it serves as a platform to push the melodies around the sharp angled corners.

Flo is undeniably indulgent at all the right times, and fans who found themselves captivated by his ability to craft soundscapes to revel in, on his previous work, will find that same creative spark here. “Mix in a Water” reveals that Flo pushes no specific boxed-in agendas with his music.

He creates it to be adaptable, and while it undeniably comes from a particular time, place, and experience, it’s penned to work ubiquitously and spins on its own axis. It’s the telling of a new musical narrative in his book of songs, and it’s an excellent addition to his building catalog, which continues to producing a dynamic and energizing soundscapes.

Admittedly I have been waiting years now for Natalie Jean to surpass her previous levels of excellence; she had arrived quietly with not much fanfare, and she steadily declared her arrival with a number of albums, singles and collaborative efforts. Needless to say I was impressed. Yet, while I immediately acclaimed and understood that Ms. Jean was indeed extremely talented, she had, as far as I was personally (and secretly) concerned, yet to produce anything indicating she was even close to showcasing what I suspected to be her fully unrealized potential—that is of course until I listened to “What Would You Do For Love?”

I had been relaxing, the day I heard the song for the first time on my reviewing playlist. I was literally daydreaming, until gradually lulled from the void by what I couldn’t see, but could only hear: the rhythm was steady and uncompromising, the melody relentless as the voice singing easily pulled me from my semi-torpor. Once acknowledging that it was Natalie Jean who had pulled me, I actually smiled, for I am always greatly pleased when an artist finally becomes what I feel he or she was meant to be.

My smile broadened as I listened to Natalie deliver a show-stopping exhibition worthy of both her hard work and her immense talent, which, I know, could’ve only happened when it did – right now. By this I mean, the years leading up to this track  which were spent honing, maturing, developing, and becoming….THIS Natalie Jean!

“What Would You Do For Love?” is as close to perfection as it gets – not a note is wasted, not a verse senseless, overlong or discordant; each bar is crafted, skillfully put together by an artist and production crew, who know something about their work, which, regrettably, seems to be rare these days.

The lyrics are meaningful, poignant, and urgent; the songs displays a powerful sense of social awareness as Natalie Jean understands that emotion, without subsequent action, is as tenuous as vapor.

The song places an exclamation mark on various pages of her bravado displayed in the past, and is further indication that Natalie proudly distinguishes herself from too many other female R&B/Pop singers, who prefer to say not much of anything worth hearing, who choose to spew stupidity and expletives while using their forum to degrade themselves and other women.

Lastly, what impressed me most about Natalie’s latest work, is that it is clearly driven by passion and awareness. From its searching overture, “What would you do for love”, one hears Natalie’s heart and soul, beating in the voice and in the melody; one certainly hears her in the track’s refusal to accept classification—it is as much an R&B song as it is a soul song, as much a pop song as it is a rock song. It is a universal song.

Natalie fuses elements of each into a magnificent example of what incredible things can occur when an artist permits themselves the time to hone, develop and mature, to ultimately become who they are…and what they were always meant to be!

MORE ABOUT: Singer, songwriter and performer, Natalie Jean is an award winning songstress and voting Member in the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS), who has already totaled 70 nominations for various musical awards, was also the Gold Medal Winner in the 2017 Global Music Awards for Female Pop Vocalist. She has performed at many venues in the MD/DC area, while making an impact in LA, New York, Nashville, and North Carolina.

The Limiters: “Somewhere In Between” – thick rhythms and flowing melodies http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/the-limiters-somewhere-in-between-thick-rhythms-and-flowing-melodies http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/the-limiters-somewhere-in-between-thick-rhythms-and-flowing-melodies#respond Sun, 10 Feb 2019 18:15:55 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=34355 Lesley Warendorff (Guitars, Vocals), Benjamin Lampe (Drums) and Josine van der Splinter (Bass) make up the Netherlands-based rock band, The Limiters.

Lesley Warendorff (Guitars, Vocals), Benjamin Lampe (Drums) and Josine van der Splinter (Bass) make up the Netherlands-based rock band, The Limiters. The collective has just released its 5 track debut EP, “Somewhere In Between”. There are so many things right with this album and its production that I don’t know where to start. First off, I think that the lead vocalist for the band, Warendorff, has such an incredible tone that catches your attention from the start and never lets it wander. Next, the band itself puts forth some instrumentals that are great all on their own. Together their exciting and addicting mix of grunge and alternative rock flavors, keep your ears glued from start to finish. Like so few other band’s, The Limiters have managed to create an album that is not only thematically cohesive, but listenable beginning to end. One of those rare ‘almost perfect’ recordings.

It’s improbable you’ll easily get tired of listening to “Somewhere In Between” because it pairs dark, deeply felt emotion with serious musicianship. Not one note is a throwaway. Everything is precise, especially Lesley Warendorff voice. Listen closely and you will find that the singer’s insights and observations are perceptive and deeply felt. I listened to it often because it speaks to me. Warendorff’s voice together with the music engages me deeply on all emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and musical levels. It will without a doubt, pretty much do the same with you.

The Limiters put their steel-capped boots on and slowly grind you into the dust with ‘Short Term Memory’, a sinister and grungy industrial groove. The trio just sound extremely good when they’re reveling in their strengths as performers, drilling home riffs, basslines and drumbeats with power-tool precision and conveying supreme heaviness with the most casual of gestures. It hardly gets better than this mesmerizing slow burner, which forges brooding complexity, while glistening with the loose sinew of its organic instrumentation.

The taut, sweaty sheen of the title song “Somewhere in Between” races ahead without a stutter, showcasing scorching riffs and an adrenalin-pumping rhythm section, made up of swaggering bass lines, the hip-grip madness of over-driven guitar noise and the full-on hustle of clattering percussion. A two-and-a-half-minute aural epic of pounding guitar brutality interspersed with intense laser-sharp stun-gun vocals. The song gathers the best elements from the blistering gumbo of The Limiters performance armaments.

A moment of poignant introspection comes in the form of “Wrote You a Song”, the second single lifted off the EP. Whereas the other tracks let their high energy and heavy, fuzzed out musical chemistry assault the ears of the listener from the get go, this song instead lures the listener in with a carefully constructed atmosphere of jangling guitars, moodily simmering basslines, thudding drums, and a stunningly affecting lead vocal from Warendorff. Best of all, it still remains a gritty recording that puts the guitars squarely in the sound spectrum.

The abundance of different guitar tones on the EP is one of its best features, which allows the band much more versatility. The textured, guitar sounds that make up so much of the record also perfectly compliment Lesley Warendorff’s voice, allowing him to build up plenty of layered washes of melody before bursting into trademark driving rock choruses. “Revenge” is one of the songs that perfectly encapsulates the aforementioned formula – an energetic garage paced groove bound to churning guitars and a swirling vocal delivery.

By the time you arrive at the EP closer, “I Should Have Known”, you realize that besides the thick rhythms and flowing melodies, The Limiters are able to play so convincingly and with so much flamboyance that their passionate playing adds weight to every track. It makes every hook, every thump of the bass, every blistering solo and drumbeat that much more authentic. The band’s performances across this EP reaches pulverizing intensities with a sense of experimental variety and polished eclecticism. This puts them way ahead of many of their contemporaries.

The Jevil Project is a France-based instrumental metal act, who does not perform live, but prefers to create music meant to be listened to. Jevil Project is proficient at marrying sludge metal riffery with dirtier post-rock guitar melodies. Trudging, down-tuned riffs drive each song, while subtle melodic movements develop on top. This pattern works to fantastic effect the on 4 track EP – “Shade”. There are tons of incredibly inspiring moments on this album. There are also plenty of riffs that will make your head bang uncontrollably. Moreover there seems to be sense of adventure on the recording, and with each subsequent listen, this thing wins me over a little bit more.

Opener “Orque” explodes thunderously through the EP’s first minutes, a thick, studied heaviness that leads into tightly pirouetting guitar lines. Passages unfold naturally, both melodic and racy, in a signature loud-to-louder twang. The rhythm section finds its stride, building purposefully to bruising crescendos.

“Hurricane” starts with a drum roll intro, and from there, it breaks into a prototypical Jevil Project stomp. This song moves, and you can’t help coming along for the ride. If I were asked to deliver one small snippet of dense, heavy music, this would be my clear cut choice.

Generally more complex than the other songs on this recording, there’s something irresistible about “Papyrus”. It’s a fantastic song that definitely would sound great live. It also contains the thrashiest riffs on the album, supported by a bottom-heavy strut alternating with overwhelming doom.

It channels a rich stoner-metal groove, one of the thickest Jevil Project has yet locked into. Positive artistic aggression that is fully composed, showing a clear will to expand in complexity and ambition. This is the type of sound that keeps you interested. It’s great because it grabs you and demands that you listen to it actively.

That complexity and ambition arrives with “Enigm”. Here Jevil Project leads his guitar-work outside of his comfort zone. With well-defined shredding and solo work. There is one riff that really stands out in this song. It goes from the skull crushing low end chords to a high melody very quickly and sounds great.

The bone-crushing depth of some of the riffs is perfectly contrasted by the clear lead guitar lines. Not having vocals is probably a strength of this project. Simple ideas can be flourished into behemoths, as shown by this release

One thing you quickly realize is that this EP actually had thought put into it. It is not just a jumble of songs that don’t have to fit because of the lack of lyrical content. If anything, these songs are closer to one long suite with clear themes that are repeated throughout.

Surprisingly, for instrumental music, the songs are quite short, delivering small pieces of metal bliss, rather overlong egocentrically inclined excursions. Clocking in at just under 10 minutes, four crushing suites deliver what is to flourish into a ravaging and personalized signature of the instrumental post-metal genre.

Wild Horse are a young vibrant original British Rock Band, from Burwash, East Sussex, formed by two brothers – Henry Baldwin (Vocals, Guitar & Harmonica) and Jack Baldwin (Vocals & Guitar) – with school friend Ed Barnes (Drums), 6 years ago, when they were around 12 years old. They have since released two albums and three EP’s, while building up a solid following in the South East. Their latest record out is the 10 track album, “Songs About Last Night”. Wild Horse have served up an entertaining, tightly produced album here. It’s very cool to hear a band playing stripped down rock and roll these days, especially when pop music and hip hop seems to be moving more and more into the uber-production realm.

There’s a real earnestness about the songs on this album, and that’s an element that’s been missing from conventional rock for a while. “Songs About Last Night” sets itself a rapid pace, refusing to unnecessarily halt itself when its tracks are an incessant burst of energy.

As soon as the overdriven guitars and banging drums start off “Fake Gold”, the band unabashedly moves forward and never stops, even briefly. It’s one of the reasons why this record feels so invigorating. Its congruity and tenacity are emblematic of the band themselves.

Drummer Ed Barnes is integral to its pacing, too, never using his metronomic beats for showmanship but instead as a base for the band to return to. Listen to how well he holds them together on the funky “High Too Much To Care”. The album does just what Wild Horse intended it to: exist on its own terms.

Although it’s important to consider what came before and after it, it’s an album with a character distinct from other current pseudo-rock releases. It helps strengthen the guitar-rock movement of this decade, and it’s a feat that shouldn’t go unacknowledged, considering the age of these guys too.

“King of the Underworld” plays testimony to the aforementioned statement, as the Baldwin’s give their guitars a solid working over, before going in for the six-string kill with “Mr Man”. This is one of those songs that you’ll remember after the record has ended.

Build around a twangy guitar riff and snappy drum beat, it maintains a live feel. Throughout the record you’ll have several of the vocal hooks and guitar riffs bouncing around in your head. “The Way I Am” brings some respite on a slower beat and clean jangling guitars.

This album is designed to be listened to loud, starting with the swampy “Every Now And Then” which keeps up the momentum and the adrenaline rush of the album with as simple a chord progression and drumbeat as you could wish for and a chorus infused with singalong spontaneity. And the highlights don’t end there.

“The Romantic Tales Of Mr Shy” is a driving rock song that careers into the distance after just over 4 minutes, and “The Club Downtown” is a mysterious noir feast with explosive interludes. Wild Horse maintain the illusion of carelessness and effortlessness while executing their tracks perfectly. The lead vocalist has a wonderful throwback voice that reminds you of previous musical era, and which he showcases beautifully on both “You” and “Harsh Realisation”.

Wild Horse are the epitome of guitar-driven rock in 2019: they embody everything before, current, and probably hereafter. Their rawness of sound is preserved and making music for music’s sake is emphasized, as opposed to commercial gain alone. How much more can you ask of a bunch of seventeen year-olds?

If you’ve  been waiting since the late ’70s, listening to hundreds of new groups and recordings during that time, trying to capture that old feeling of sitting down with a rock album that took you on a journey to a higher place where musical genres and boundaries melted away for the greater glory of sheer adrenalin pumping emotion. If rare albums like those were addictive for you, requiring many listens to unravel deeper mysteries and joys. Then you will not be disappointed with the progressive metal album “Henry Metal 8” because, Henry Metal has done it again, and for the tenth time in a row. This album is the modern and heavier version of the creativity we all loved during the progressive rock era. The music flows well and is intelligent from beginning to end.

“Henry Metal 8” is one of very few to succeed fully in the same way and on virtually every level for me. You’ll realize how much you’d missed sitting down for a spell with such engaging music that shines from that captivating higher place. Every element here seems just right, flowing seamlessly, and the world suddenly seems better.

It’s hard to describe the 8 tracks here without sounding a bit unhinged with excitement, but that’s the feeling I got from this effort. Trying to explain exactly why “Henry Metal 8” stuns me would be an overwhelming task. Suffice to say that the masterful balance of composition, musicianship, and production strikes me most of all, with a special nod to the brilliant guitars and vocals throughout.

The insightful and oddball lyrics (think Tenacious D), the extended instrumental excursions (think early King Crimson), the lush harmonies (think early Yes), the constant attention to the swing of emotional highs and lows (think early Genesis), and the crushing riff-rich landscapes (think Metallica and Slayer), as well as the bombastic operatic-like performances (think Meatloaf), are all coming from that great place above. Every note and beat matters here.

Since he started in 2017, Henry Metal has certainly proven himself to be a master composer, arranger, lyricist, performer, producer, engineer, and virtually every other role that applies. While I’ve definitely enjoyed his previous efforts, this one’s special.

“Henry Metal 8” is likely a recording he’ll be remembered for – the moment his many roles and skills merged into something larger and magical. At least that’s my take after some totally addictive listening.

The album opens with “Robes 8”, in an almost offhand way, with building piano and organ keys leading us towards the incumbent pandemonium that awaits us, and from there moves all over the rock n’ roll map. Tracks are both beautiful and extremely aggressive.

And while “Sparta” forges an epic metal backdrop, its “I Got The Fever” that unleashes Henry Metal’s beastly guitar chops – from fiery soloing to unbridled shredding, this upbeat track has got it all. The gritty “Bodhisattiva” unfolds all of Henry’s singing prowess as his voice scales dizzying heights, reminding me of Toto in full vocal swing during their heyday.

If you dig relentless rhythms, and intense energy, doused with a dose of classic rock melody, then “Gotta Get Back To Chicago” is your cut. The bombastic roar of “Propaganda” hides some wickedly clever lyrics, so you should be reminded to hit replay a couple times to catch the gist of the narrative.

“Winberry Lavender” is one of my favorite tracks on the album – vocally, musically and lyrically, it is a stunningly impressive composition. Ironic, melodic, and richly layered in rock’s lushest electrifying instruments, this is a song Meatloaf would beg, steal and borrow, to have in his catalog.

“Raven” is a thrashing five minute rock n’ roll opera, with Henry Metal’s roving guitar work grabbing center stage. It’s a fitting end to a charging and deceptively clever album. An interwoven masterpiece of high octane power, the production and craftsmanship is second to none on “Henry Metal 8”, as after 10 albums, fans of Henry Metal have come to expect.

Melbourne born and raised, Bianca Modesti is a professional singer, songwriter and all-round entertainer. Under the mentorship of Steven Zammit and a Bachelor’s Degree for Music and Contemporary Performance, Bianca is arms herself with a tool-set to project her unique blend of 90’s styled rock and modern-day cutting edge sounds. To complete her earworm, but hard-hitting formula she adds well thought-out, and empowering lyrics that cover every angle of love, life, fear and forgiveness, the extreme corners of her heart and soul can reach. Fresh off her 5 track EP “Race Against Time”, and an impacting video for “Betrayal” – which deals with toxic relationships and domestic violence – Bianca is back with a brand new single which has the same title as her previous EP release.

On first listening to “Race Against Time”, I was stunned by Bianca Modesti’s voice, her phrasing and, well, her soulfulness. Her voice is, quite frankly, massive. Watching her music videos also shows an enthusiasm and lack of self-consciousness and pretension rarely seen in her peers, and a closer look at some of her songs shows a hugely impressive range and a ridiculously powerful voice.

While she generally sits comfortably in her alto range, when she lets loose, her voice absolutely soars, without hesitation or any lack of power. Being sung with such sincerity the song easily strikes a chord with any listener.

On “Race Against Time”, Bianca is almost always in her upper register pushing the momentum of song, written by Bianca and Steven Zammit, with high caliber intensity and emotion. Hooking you in immediately with rich over-driven guitars, which make the track irresistible to the ear.

Lyrically, the song goes a lot deeper and showcases Bianca’s anthemic and empowering chops. More than a simple pop-rock song, this sounds like an urgent battle cry, with the kind of vocal firepower ready to ignite a fiercely devoted fan base.

Bianca Modesti’s voice develops throughout the song, to reach the explosive choruses. The songstress’s ballsy attitude and the loud production works in tandem perfectly. The syncopated bombast of the guitar-driven rhythm is actually kind of brilliant in the age of squealing EDM synths, and certainly needs the vocal power that Bianca delivers here.

In an age of manufactured celebrities and Idol wannabees, what impresses me most about Bianca is her sincere passion for the song. She is an original, powerful and passionate act.

She holds nothing back during her performances. She pours her heart and soul into her studio recordings, and into the making of her music videos, and from what I can gather, even in her on-stage performances. Bianca is not simply singing the song and reciting the lyrics, she is telling a story with sincerity and style.

Ultimately, “Race Against Time” is a genuine pop-rock record performed with the authentic heart of a talented artist. Bianca Modesti’s vocal versatility proves she could perform any style of music with ease. Once you hit the repeat button, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find yourself singing along in no time. That is if you can keep up with Bianca, of course!

The “Race Against Time” single, releases on the 15th of February 2019.

John Tracy is decidedly one of the most talented active Americana singer-songwriters in the indie industry, and by all counts, extremely prolific, considering the Virginia-based artist released his seventh album last year. In a more just world, John would be widely recognized for the excellent songwriter and musician he is. His voice and delivery have a way of worming their way into your heart, in songs populated by instantly sympathetic characters, both clean and dirty guitars, rich melodies, and cleverly written, heart wrenching lyrics. John’s music and lyrics cut to the bone with their raw sincerity. His latest single “Love True Just For You” reveals that he continues to write beautiful songs and come up with fantastic melodies. This is one of those tracks that you put on and it’s done playing before you know it, which makes you play it again. And again. And again.

John Tracy is in many ways a quintessential artist – an earnest, deeply talented songwriter with strong, smart beliefs, wrapped in a soulful musical package, and when he tackles the theme of love, as he does on “Love True Just For You“, the results cannot be anything less than captivatingly heartwarming.

The track is a powerful call to simply be loved, loved well, and loved completely.  If you can listen to this without feeling something, you must not be alive. John’s lyrics are pure storytelling poetry. Steeped in hope and desire, they are simultaneously personal and universal.

As an ode to love, “Love True Just For You” is simply transcendent. It is an easy listen, and an extremely rewarding one, qualities that most current mainstream songs seem to lack. One could go on and on about all of the little details; the song is packed with powerful, quotable lines and indelible musical touches that become engraved in your mind for days.

This is a powerfully, completely human track, as there is a little of all of us in here. The song possesses the ability to make the listener truly feel, for every second, and when John’s voice accelerates up through the notes, it’s positively moving.

If you’re convinced that modern music isn’t producing great songwriters, John Tracy is strong evidence to the contrary, producing work that’s heartfelt and timeless. But then to be entirely fair, John is no millennium whiz kid songwriter with a laptop and a Soundcloud account. His musical roots and inspirational narratives come from another place and time – Probably accompanied by an old worn-out acoustic guitar and a lifetime of experiences.

When John isn’t writing about love, as he does on “Love True Just For You“, he is observing, considering and commenting on life, addressing its trials and tribulations and dealing with a world that is changing into something most of us barely recognize any more.

His lyrics revel in minute detail, rendering his settings and characters with exquisite clarity. When you’re an artist like John Tracy, the bar gets set higher and higher with each and every new release. “Love True Just For You” meets and exceeds what might seem like unachievable levels for an independent artist. But that’s the beauty of a John Tracy tune.

ECHOGLASS: “Stories From The North” – an uncomplicated walk across the aural senses http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/echoglass-stories-from-the-north-an-uncomplicated-walk-across-the-aural-senses http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/echoglass-stories-from-the-north-an-uncomplicated-walk-across-the-aural-senses#respond Tue, 05 Feb 2019 15:01:36 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=34288 Described as former buskers, beggars, and executors of unsavory professions, ECHOGLASS are composed of DA McKenna, Remmy, Bo, JJ and Fritz.

Described as former buskers, beggars, and executors of unsavory professions, ECHOGLASS are composed of DA McKenna, Remmy, Bo, JJ and Fritz. The indie collective release their music through Darkhouse Recordings. The band’s latest release is the four track EP entitled “Stories From The North” which mirrors their musical heritage in the great North West of England. The EP begins with what is to be one of its most potent voices, “Youth”. It is a song with seductive warmth and rich resonating vocal kisses enveloping the ear. It’s gentle but defined rhythmic persuasion and uncomplicated walk across the aural senses make the track instantly accessible and persuasive, its harmonic touch leaving a melodic residue on the body and emotions which sparks up active feelings.

Songs like “Sett End” with its feisty rhythmic temptation, ABC like melodic strikes, Bowie-esque lead vocals, and compelling emotive narrative, along with its crunchy guitar motifs and electro resonance, alongside the additional female harmonies, bring a richer soak of emotive elegance and triumphant energy, to entrap listener passions with greater contagious craft and imagination. This is alt-Britpop songwriting at its best with the skill to temper all aspects into a perfectly inciting wash.

It is fair to say that no tracks stray far from the core of ECHOGLASS’ intention to not allow one song to lie in the shade of another. Instead they all offer an impossible to resist melodic hand which is eagerly grasped by thoughts and heart.

For each unlikely, less dramatic moment, there is always a fire of enterprise in the likes of “Peppermint Place” with its shards of bass and keyboard delight, and anthemic call, as well as the sultry embrace of those deeply affecting vocals. This is a song which leaves tingles and raving aural hormones at large in its wake.

“Belgrave Road” engages with unreserved enterprise. The male female vocals is a spark to interest and intrigue admittedly. The song bubbles and simmers upon the senses with flushes of molten passion in places. Thus making up a quartet of tracks which especially leave a deep satisfaction.

They all trigger greater flames in a fire of ardor and pleasure, which erupts with the opening bar of the first track, and completed what is a tremendously evocative and thrilling album. Equipped with a virulent contagion of vocal and musical hooks, the song sets itself up as just one more irresistible triumph.

The EP presents a melodic smolder and emotional caress of captivating propositions which potently reminds us that ECHOGLASS forms part of Britain’s most imaginative and persistently compelling songwriters and artists.

Here the band bring all their emotively descriptive skills to bear whilst conjuring evocative croons in sound and texture. “Stories From The North” is a great opportunity for those new to ECHOGLASS to discover some essential and classically shaped modern pop music and for those in the know to discover some new treats and bask in the sound of a very special recording.

Those of us who are fans of the Cleveland founded band, Vessel Decimal, might occasionally wonder why they aren’t more popular. Well, the answer is simple, and it says a lot about the culture in which we live. Vessel Decimal’s music requires one to think. Not just about the lyrics, or not about some indefinable concept, or whatever. No, you actually have to listen to their music in order to get it. That means that, in order to really appreciate Vessel Decimal you have to take the time to focus, to actually concentrate on the music. Sadly, the majority of people these days either aren’t inclined, or aren’t capable of such sustained listening. Which is why the radio air-waves are filled with garbage; that foul-sounding stuff that recording-label marketers think we want to hear, or believe we are just barely intelligent enough to comprehend.

“CONVERSION: Level Two” is an album that will require all of your attention – this is not background music. If you want to get the most out of this powerful collection of songs, you need to set aside some time and focus. Otherwise, this may sound like chaotic noise.

There’s a lot going on here, and if your mind wanders, or you get distracted, you are going to miss something important. No question. When looking at the 13 songs that make up this album, the first thing you need to focus on is the band’s overall songwriting. The quality of melodies, rhythm structures, and direction of the songs are fantastic.

For all the appreciation the band get for their ability to craft monstrous riffs, they also understand two key components that other proponents of this genre forget about: melody and songwriting. “CONVERSION: Level Two” is the band’s best album yet because their genuine sense of sonic joy filters through just about every note, but also because Vessel Decimal pay careful attention to their songwriting and lyrical abilities.

I don’t have any difficulty in saying this album sounds like the band’s finest hour yet. From the moment they open with the introductory “Inner Circle” the band starts working its way towards climactic crescendos.

The songs are packed with all the things you’d expect from the band at this point: flawlessly executed metal grooves, crushing guitar riffs, cinematic synth interludes, and ravaging vocals, all held together by rampant percussion and impacting lyricism.

The technical nature, highly skilled musicianship and sheer harshness that Vessel Decimal display over the crushing “Denominator” and “Neighborhood Watch”, will help open the minds of young music fans in an extraordinary new way. Setting the bar at a new level, on “Half a Million”, the band set out to wow audiences, raising expectations of what to expect.

While mostly bold, Vessel Decimal also crosses boundaries with a sound that is not only pleasing to metal heads, but teetering on the epic cinematic realm in “A Learning Process”. Ripping in with crashing drums and a mixture of screams and growls on “All Emotions”, frustration and anger flow through the instrumental and vocals while a guitar solo steps in as a pinnacle of the two emotions.

Leading with no pause, “New Stimuli” comes next with a tempo that morphs into a steadier beat.  Mixing it up some, “No Suppression” is up next with a diverse sonic range and Darkwave style vocals. The vocals float in and out of the beat, and extends its darker electronic theme.

“The Tomb of Santa Claus” takes Vessel Decimal back to the chugging, grinding rhythm followed by an ominous post-rock attitude. Vessel Decimal keep the audience guessing during the opening bars of “Upcycling” before shifting the energy into overdrive and plying on the lyrical pressure: “Smells like the snakes have made peace with the rats. They twist and turn in the woodpile. They keep it growing – the stockpile.”

“Organic Program” again falls back into the darkwave and industrial slumber as it crawls hauntingly in the shadows. “Spontaneous Harmony” features three distinct vocal styles that blend and weave their way through the arrangement in succession. This brings us to the final piano driven track – “Admit It” which rides out on a set of clean vocals in a melding of shadowy echoes and eerie tones.

Overall, “CONVERSION: Level Two” is very diverse within each track, while keeping a similar theme throughout the album. The tracks shift gears often, but smoothly, allowing all of the different aspects to be appreciated. It leads into arguably Vessel Decimal’s most immaculate recording yet. The vocals are mostly harsh-sounding and full of power, working in tandem with the crushing guitars and magnificent orchestration to create climactic crescendos of epic proportions.  What more could you want from a band like this?

Born in Ft. Hood, Texas, and currently based in Los Angeles, Malea is a musician of Korean and Irish descent, and a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music. As a child, she spent several years living in Korea, as well as growing up with her Grandparents in Long Island, New York. Malea’s career took a new direction as a recording artist when she moved to Los Angeles. Her previous EP “Swept Away” was met with critical and listener acclaim, while her songs “Give” charted for ten straight weeks, and “One Hot Mess” went to number one on Billboard.

Pour yourself a glass of Scotch, pull up an easy chair and enjoy some of the smoothest and most lovely singing you will ever enjoy. Malea’s voice is like that first sip. Smooth at first taste, strong and emotional going down and a lingering sense you have just enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience. But then, wait, you can hear it again.

Sultry, strong, emotional and beautiful. Enjoyed best straight up, on her latest single “Hero”. Malea blends her classical foundations with her pop leanings to create lusciously multi-layered and multicolored soundscapes meant to mesmerize.

This a great introduction to someone new to Malea’s music. For an existing fan, this is the perfect way to fill the gap in your collection. “Hero” is sonically different from previous releases, such as “Swept Away” or even “You Are Loved”.

Less nuanced, noticeably bolder, and more powerful in its execution, “Hero” is filled with the type of distinctive and glistening vocals that have been off the airways for far too long. The song is much more direct than any of her previous albums.

Malea speaks up and pays homage to those who make a positive impact on the world, and change people’s lives for the better, including her own. She puts on her truly empathetic voice, as the song is open, revealing and much less symbolic than some of her other stuff.

The lyrics are direct and anthemic with a very catchy chorus, ready for radio play. Avid fans of her slower more angelic works won’t be disappointed either, as “Hero” has some extremely poignant moments too.

“Hero” certainly captures her uniquely familiar sound, with the added benefit of a driving backdrop that leans more toward the rock and cinematic idiom than it does towards EDM. Which in itself is a brave choice, considering that Malea achieved a Billboard number one hit with “One Hot Mess”. At the same time though, it shows an artist willing to take chances and fuel her craft with creative momentum, rather than resting comfortably on her laurels.

This track is a beautiful tribute to the power of hope, life and love. A full, throaty and crystal clear delivery, combined with meticulous phrasing allows Malea to easily weave her way through the arrangement, as she scales towards a crescendo of emotion. Having the ability to evoke emotion through voice is probably one of the most influential and powerful traits that a musician can have. And Malea has it in bucket loads.

Let’s cut to the core first – the album “Heartbeat” is Nicki Kris’ greatest musical accomplishment so far. A few years after her debut release, Nicki has not lost one ounce of her touch. The stunningly mature vocals of a still so youthful and yet so refined a woman, the striking musical compositions, the vibrant and vivid songwriting, and the unique style without the overproduction continue to reveal an artist who wants to remain true to her style, even if it may be at the expense of sacrificing the cheap thrills which usually assure multi-platinum sales status for lesser talents, which I think she could do anyway. Nicki has the looks and the potential star power, and I think that the latter case might yet come without having to redefine herself in terms of some marketing craze that has less substance and is otherwise bland.

In her eyes and in her vocals, Nicki Kris is energetic and passionate. Her music is extremely communicative, and especially open-ended, for it can be listened to from various perspectives and angles. Regardless of whether you are happy or sad, angry or contented, “Heartbeat” seems to be apt for the present moment, which includes social and political perceptions, as much as it does emotional ones.

Great vocals, striking arrangements, and unique style, all reflect an artist who wants to reveal to the world her true talent without compromising her special qualities in the name of trying to blend in with the insipid, superficial styles of today’s – for lack of a better tag – hot market products.

In fact, when describing “Heartbeat”, Nicki Kris says that the 14-track album “really digs deep into who I am as an artist and songwriter. This album was about me finding my voice and my assertion of how music is truly my heartbeat. My producer and co-writing partner on the album Kevin McNoldy and I really tried to incorporate this feeling throughout the album especially in the lyrics and recordings.”

Regardless of how you interpret these words, there is no denying that Nicki is beyond unique, and distances herself in sound from any of the popular female artists out there today. A blend of classic singer-songwriter flavors and ultramodern cutting edge sonic aesthetics, she truly holds her own, making her sound something to take in and appreciate.

“Heartbeat” is a collection of prior singles, a few remixes, and 8 brand new songs. It kicks off with the enhanced version of the empowerment anthem “Captain America (Deluxe Version)” which quickly sets the tone for the album. Alongside “Heartbeat” and “Rise”, this song take a hard and deep look at the challenges facing America today, while offering powerful sense of upliftment.

Nicki is energetic, and her musical passion is pervasive, allowing her fortitude to transcend to the listener via these tracks. The entire album is a journey of sorts, taking you into the mind of Nicki Kris and showing off to the world what she has been wanting to do all along. A surprise song arrives with “Can’t Let You Go” which finds Nicki exuberantly flowing across an upbeat Caribbean flavored rhythm. This will definitely put a kick in your step.

Another highlight arrives with the piano driven “I Am Who I Am”. Lyrically blunt and direct, as well as being vocally expressive, Nikki dominates this track with a stunningly passionate performance. But things are only starting to warm up on this album.

She is literally on fire vocally, on the smoldering “Defenseless”. I hit replay quite a few times on this one and just let the beauty of Nicki’s voice unfold, and catapult towards the stratosphere. And she had no intentions of stopping there.

On the opening verse of the lover’s anthem, “Everything I Do, I Do For You”, she sings: “I’m floating in an everlasting dream / Surrounded by a misty lavender haze / Losing my mind deep in your body / I uncover everything about you / Near or far we are closer together / Love me now, can you love me forever.” At this point Nicki is truly irresistible, her voice desirous and stimulating, as you grasp onto every word she breathes.

“Lost in L.A.” sees the award-winning North Carolina singer-songwriter, haul out her raspy rock voice, as she cuts through the soaring choruses and verses which articulate her lyrical gifts. “Stay” is similarly gorgeous with Nicki on irascible form. It’s beautiful, it’s playful, and it’s sultry. Her lyrics once again shine through as the song puts you in an inescapable trance.

Of course this album offers so much more than the aforementioned tracks. There are the reworked versions of “You’ve Got A Hold On Me (Remix)”, “Falling To Pieces (Remix)” and “Picture Yourself (Remix)”, as well as the tracks – “Light It Up” and “Call My Name”. This latter track being particularly poignant and heartfelt, as Nicki delivers her throaty, full-bodied vocals against an eloquent piano arrangement. Her voice arcs up into a potent roar towards the end of the song, unadorned and all the more majestic for it.

Nicki Kris has never sounded as good, as irascible yet as in control as she does on “Heartbeat”. It’s an album of compelling vocal narrative, told through the twists and turns of her voice and the perceptive musical arrangements. Nicki is crystal clear in her intentions and so easy to empathize with. This is clearly the sound of her heartbeat.

Ohio based, Atlanta bred artist Young Corn has been building a core fan-base that provides him with the inspiration to keep creating and innovating, which includes his exciting new wave sound he has dubbed “melodizing.”  His latest single “3”, is a collaboration with a fellow artist on Soundcloud.  The single is an amalgam of the trends that made a whole lot of Soundcloud rappers famous over the past three years — his crooning rap blends singing and rapping, and odd flavors like trap and R&B influences. The SoundCloud generation loves to compare themselves to rock stars. But it’s more than just an aesthetic. The music and lyrics are reminiscent of 2000’s alternative rock, specifically the sub-genres emo and pop-punk.  On his own terms Young Corn is ready to impact the hip-hop culture.

Young Corn’s potential breakout single may just be “3”, which is ready to hit the stratosphere in 2019. Praised for his lyrics as well as his style, he chronicles love, passion and heartbreak from the streets. With a heavy pulsating bassline that drifts away as Young Corn sings of cheating on his girl, “3” is a quality track, the chorus is really catchy, and the production has this head-nod inducing quality.

Despite the track’s short run-time, it is able to make quite an impression. Young Corn’s latest venture is an unwavering commitment to his sound, and unlike many of his contemporaries, this is more of a gift than it is a curse for him.

Right now, there are a plethora of artists using the trending styles and sounds of the new wave. So many of these newer rappers are achieving notoriety by simply putting their own spins on contemporary styles. Even if it’s just a slight tweak of what everyone else is doing, minor adjustments along with that particular artist’s persona can go a long way.

In that respect, Young Corn is distinct enough to be recognizable, and if he keeps his creative momentum going, soon he’ll be different enough to blow your mind. He’s a traplike-crooner who loves to interpolate melody into his raps, especially on his hooks.

That style makes this record an emo roller coaster ride; Young Corn has a whole lot to say, along with the different vibes he has to offer the listener. So when he’s at his best, his music is are extremely catchy and full of life. I imagine that a song like “3” will have crowds going wild at live shows.

In this age of rappers identifying with rock stars, Young Corn’s crescendos and vocal arrangements can be very rockstar-like. Young Corn focuses on crafting the catchiest, most melodic trap bangers he can cultivate, and on “3” he has an opportunity to distinguish himself, so when he strikes a chord on this record, he’s compelling to listen to.

If you’re a sucker for low-bpms, rumbling subs, shimmering keyboard loops, poppin’ drum beats, and fluttering hi-hats, as well as an even bigger sucker for rappers who can flow melodically over the aforementioned beats effortlessly, then Young Corn is your go to rapper.

Sydney Australia based singer-songwriter Peter Senior is back with a brand new single in 2019, entitled “Little Lovin” taken from his debut album “On The Edge”. The track was mixed in LA, by Brian Reeves (U2, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus). Peter is a craftsman, and this single is a great addition to his catalog. The sound is immediate and polished, a testament to the caliber of the musicians here, and to the production. Peter gives a typically stunning vocal performance. He uses his voice to full effect, much in the same way rhythm and blues artists of the past used their voices as an instrument to express not only the words but the emotion of the song. Right through the throwback rock n’ soul rhythm, Peter fronts a full gospel type choir, to rousing effect.

Peter Senior’s soaring, muscular, emotional voice is what makes the track work—it’s impossible to imagine any other singer pulling it off. He shifts from rock and roll rants to soulful crooning at the turn of a bar, backed by a flurry of horns and a rampant rhythm section. It’s the ultimate over the top bombastic monster of a track you weren’t expecting this year.

As you listen, you can see the story unfolding before you. I personally enjoy envisioning music unfolding before my eyes, and Peter knows how to tell a story. He is much more than a singer-songwriter, although he is clearly that. He is also an extraordinarily gifted pianist and he is in possession of an exquisite voice.

“Little Lovin” shows that once Peter’s performance juices are flowing, they are unstoppable. Peter Senior, is a journeyman artist, like they once upon a time all were. He manages to sing each of his songs with emotion, conviction, and radiance, as if his life depended on it. Complex in its feel, and straightforward in its message.

If all the great musicians out there were working this hard, we would be able to recover the Pop and rock n roll that is so needed right now. Peter’s strong vocals, the musicians, and the production simply blow me away every time I listen to this song. “Little Lovin” is not just a record, it is a Peter Senior record where Peter let’s his creative and performance side take control.

If you’re not a Peter Senior fan you should still pick this track up because it is one of the better records of its genre in years. Mainly because records of this magnitude are made so few and far between. And even less so in the independent market. I find it a breath of fresh air and it absolutely takes me out of this world when I listen to it.

On his debut album, Peter Senior has forged a genre of music that very few artists can fit into today. He has a style 100% his own, and when you hear someone playing a similar song to “Little Lovin”, you think of some legendary performers from the past, or immediately know that you are listening to Peter Senior, as he currently has no peers.

Hailing from Rochester, NY, The Chrissie Romano Band evolved from a desire to not only create original tunes but to rekindle the musical relationship between John Pasquarella (Drums/Vocals),  Ken Romano (Bass/Vocals) and Chrissie Romano (Guitar/Vocals) that began several years ago. Rolling down the track list of their album “Photo” the connection with the lyrics is a connection with your head. The connection with the beauty of the music is a connection with your heart.

The essential instrumentals free of surplus radio-induced fat, and vocals complement each other impeccably, while the harmonization is a thing of beauty. It is both inspiring and nostalgic, strong and wistful. The gorgeous clean and crisp guitars, resonating basslines and snappy tasteful drumming produce a continuous flow and a series of heartfelt, catchy melodies.

“Photo” contains plenty of gorgeous lyrics and a handful of genuinely tender moments, though never too sappy or melodramatic in any way. The music is able to resonate with more than just one generation. The 9 songs are delivered with such integrity and honesty to be listenable to people of many different musical tastes.

This album is so cohesive and has such a great feeling about it. It doesn’t lose any impact on repeated listening at all. One song will hook you in, another will hold you there. It difficult to place this album into any one musical box – from folk to pop, except maybe for the “alternative” label. In that The Chrissie Romano Band can be seen as the “alternative” to all things we consider negative in today’s music scene.

Very rarely, especially in today’s era of music dominated by record companies looking only for singles, do you find an album that is good from start to finish. The Chrissie Romano Band have achieved that. But this record is better than good; it’s great. An album that serves as a reflection on life, on love, on friendship, on loss, and on time, you will love this record. It is nearly perfect.

I love all the songs, and can listen to them again and again. However, the choruses on “What About Her?”; the basslines on “Stay”; the guitar strumming on “Bittersweet and Unkind”; the drumming on “Broke Mine”, and the lead vocals on “Morgan’s Song”, these are the most impressive memories I took away with me after listening to the album “Photo”.

I certainly feel like this album does what music is intended to do, and that is completely submerge one into what the artist is saying. “Photo” is not only a terrific album, it’s one that creates an unshakeable impression immediately at the outset, a series of songs that stir the senses and soothe them at the same time.

The Chrissie Romano Band have what it takes to ascend to the highest realms of the alt-pop and indie-folk hierarchy. It’s a status they richly deserve, not because of any hype or happenstance, but because they create a sound so dynamic and exhilarating, that it thrusts itself forward and makes the music impossible to ignore.

Though he took a break from recording and performing music during 2017-2018, singer-songwriter Jason Garriotte aka Chords of Truth, has toured a variety of cities throughout the United States playing countless shows, as well as releasing a consistent number or record releases, since his debut 7 track EP “Reflections Of Reality” in 2012. He can go from solo guitar picking folk, to fully fledged out musical arrangements for major sonic impact. On his latest single, entitled “Pattern”, he blends a bit of both to support his conscious lyrics with a subtle spiritual twist. Jason’s music is for people who really want to think and feel, and also want it to sound great. Perhaps even more impressive than Chords of Truth’s songwriting abilities, are his lyrics. The man is a keen observer of life with an impeccable ability to put into words what it’s like to be, at the risk of sounding cliché, human.

“I lie in wonder how we’ve survived to make it this far. Spawning our species through the ages as we spin around our star. Our brains are trained to avoid pain and seek pleasure. As we progress we devise a standard adapting it to our pattern.” That’s how Chords of Truth opens his examination of human behavior, in “Pattern”.

Jason Garriotte aka Chords of Truth

Jason Garriotte aka Chords of Truth

If you’re a big fan of musicians who know how to write quality songs with a narrative that is not too sappy in one extreme or too obtuse in the other, Jason should be your go to songwriter. Every one of his songs tells a story with lyrics that are extremely well-written, yet easily accessible.

If you can’t empathize with at least one of Jason’s songs, you have either lived a perfectly charmed life, totally blindfolded, or you should have someone check you for a heartbeat. “Pattern” is another stellar outing from the singer-songwriter. Deep, rich and polished.

Chords of Truth wears his influences proudly on his sleeve, and you’ll hear echoes of everybody from Guthrie to Croce, and Cash to Dylan, in the inspired momentum of this track. “Pattern” starts out on slow finger-picking style, before expanding into a bass and drum driven mid-tempo rhythm, shaded with a chorus of harmonies performed and produced by Jeffrey Joslin.

Jason’s ability to use simple, straightforward everyday language to communicate complex ideas is remarkable and rare. Chords of Truth is a wonderful storyteller and his underlying themes are universal. Since his brief hiatus last year, he is perfectly back on track, and it can be heard in his voice, writing, and guitar playing.

Jason has a way with both words and the melody on “Pattern”, and he wraps them all in an honest and confident vocal delivery. This piece of work will reach out and grab your interest. Don’t miss out on the message and the magic contained within.

I cannot say more emphatically that if you really love Folk and Americana based music, and follow the great songwriters of our time, you will love Chords of Truth.
