Featured Track: Dominic Augustin-On The Rise

Dominic Augustin is "On The Rise." His new track and video will surely capture listener's attention and imagination.

Dominic has a very pleasant vocal delivery tailor made for R&B and Pop. His range and expressiveness bring home the track with impact.

When Dominic sings "I'm a rising star," it does not take long to agree with that summation. 

"On The Rise" features a futuristic sci-fi video that will have music and game enthusiast clamoring for more. The quality of the video is superb as well as the production values.

I would not be surprised to hear more about this up an coming artist very soon, rising star indeed...

Featured Track:-The Song Gardeners - Love Is The Magic of Change

The Song Gardeners are back with a new single from the fertile grounds where they plant a seed with their enchanting sounds on "Love Is The Magic of Change."

The seed grows and blossoms inside you while listening to their music. It is a can't miss proposition with lyrics that will touch your soul.

Here is an example of some of the lyrics: 

And we are one with the universe sparks of light, connecting the people and places in our lives, and we are here for a moment in space and time, inspiring each other to better humankind.

It is so beautiful and meaningful and the music brings the lyrics down the path that makes the most impact. The voice of Ms. Corrie Dunn is excellent, her inner beauty and tenderness come shining through as she plays the keys. 

Chris Day's bass is in perfect step as Mary Gospe provides the backing vocals. It is a trio from heaven here to grace our presence with their magic of change, their music.

Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck

The Song Gardeners is a musical trio from the San Francisco Bay Area featuring singer/songwriter Corrie Dunn (vocals, piano, guitar), singer/songwriter Mary Gospe (vocals, guitar, percussion), and Chris Day (bass). 

Their original songs are filled with positive, empowering messages and beautiful harmonies.

Featured Track: Dan Palladino-Leaving Cygnus

 

Dan Palladino has released several albums over his career and most recently in 2019 Pastoral Memory.

Dan Commented: With the single track "Leaving Cygnus," I wanted to continue the experiments which began on "Counting Stars" from Pastoral Memory. I find the electric sitar uniquely suited for ambient music, and I think featuring it on this track gives it the middle eastern/southern Asian vibe I was trying to create.  

 I would agree with that statement after listening to the track. I think the combination of the ambient music and all its sounds and textures are enhanced in a very positive way.  In fact, it actually highlights the other instruments in an entirely different light.  

"Leaving Cignus" continues the path of solar exploration in a most significant way with music and eye catching art like what Dan presents on the cover of this single track.

My hope as a listener is that Dan Palladino continues to experiment with different instruments to put on top of the ambient layers he creates. 

So sit back and listen to the stream now and enjoy this interstellar creation of music!

Featured Track: Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf-Launch


Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf know how to rock. They were good enough to tour with George Clinton and Parliament last year so that tells you something.

The video provided is a practice session before their tour performing the track "Launch."

I thought of one of my favorite bands Living Colour when they kicked into high gear.
Their sound is composed of funk, high octane rock, hard rock, and psychedelic. Maybe Hendrix would have sounded this way if he had lived and continued to record into the 70s. We will never know that but now we have a band like Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf to satisfy the need for a rockin' band that blends a little bit of everything.
 
And let us not forgot the great lead vocals of Miss Velvet and her marvelous stage presence. It takes energy and charisma to get a great song across to the audience and this lady knows how to bring it with powerhouse vocals in a sexy whirling dervish way.
 
Watch the video and listen you will be impressed and want more, I sur
e did.

Featured Track: I Can't Breathe - Deitrick Haddon and Mickey Stevenson

Every year certain albums and songs make history and are remembered for eternity.  And along those lines, some events change the world. 2020 was full of life-changing events and the most prolific and shocking was the unnecessary death of a human being. George Floyd will be remembered for his untimely death. I have never been so horrified when I saw the video of that fateful day. I am sure millions of other people feel the same way.

Deitrick Haddon and Mickey Stevenson got together to write a track titled "I Can't Breathe."
 

 

Mickey Stevenson (pictured with Smokey Robinson) was one of the most important and influential figures in the history of recorded music, making a name for himself with the legendary Motown label. The combination of Haddon with Stevenson is a powerful coupling that was a cannot miss proposition.

As you will see and hear with the video presented honoring George Floyd, there were no punches pulled and it all comes straight from the heart for both men.

 

Haddon has some strong pipes and lets go giving it all that he possibly could. The lyric video and images are equally powerful. This is about being an American, and our diversity and how every human being regardless of race, creed, or religion deserves respect. The music deflates the hate and causes behind events like we all witnessed this year.

"I Can't Breathe" is statement musically and spiritually. We are all one race living on one planet. Our commonality is the love for our fellow men and women and in the end, our love for the universal language of music comes shining through! Let it be a beacon of light leading us all down the right road.

MORE ABOUT DEITRICK HADDON 
 
 
Deitrick Vaughn Haddon is a gospel singer, songwriter, music producer, pastor, and actor. He is best known for progressive gospel, and contemporary styles of music. He is also one of the cast members in Oxygen's reality television show Preachers of L.A. Contents.

Haddon launched his solo career as a Christian R&B vocalist with the Lost & Found on Tyscot/Verity in 2002. The set peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Gospel Charts and received wide critical acclaim and spawned the hit "Sinner's Prayer" which was played extensively on gospel and mainstream R&B radio stations.

The 1970s-leaning Crossroads followed in 2004, led off by the upbeat single "God is Good". In an uncharacteristic move for marketing a gospel album, Haddon made an appearance on the long-running syndicated series Soul Train performing the single and the title track from the album.

Haddon appeared to be pushing his Gospel artistry further into the ranks of mainstream venues with 7 Days, released October 10, 2006. 7 Days was produced almost entirely by R&B producers Tim & Bob Balancing out the contemporary bulk of the album is the traditional gospel-flavored lead single "Heaven Knows" which Haddon produced himself.

Haddon and his brother Gerald also produced the comeback album Brand New Day for veteran gospel vocalist Vanessa Bell Armstrong. Deitrick Haddon & Voices of Unity's Live the Life won Gospel Music Workshop of America Excellence Awards for "New Artist of the Year—Urban Contemporary" and "Album of the Year—Urban Contemporary".

Featured Track: Dyan Garris-Every Time You Breathe

The word breathe has taken on a significantly different meaning this year for anyone that has a pulse and knows what is going on in the U.S. I cannot help but think of one thing.  

Keeping those thoughts in mind, Dyan Garris has released a beautiful track titled "Every Time You Breath." The lovely rhythm filled ivory keys that she commands take center stage along with some decidedly heavenly vocalizations.

"Every Time You Breath" is a reminder of our humanity and how important it is to have good breathing and how you should be able to control it and modulate it as needed. The track is in fact a great encapsulation of the essence of life however the artwork of the cover lets you know we only have so much time before our breathing stops so cherish every second you have on the earth and enjoy the music!

More About Dyan Garris: DyanGarrisMusic.com

Dyan Garris is a multiple award-winning New Age recording artist, an award-winning author, and an official music reviewer for Zone Music Reporter (ZMR), New Age CD, and Spirit Seeker Magazine. Garris has recorded and produced 13 albums. Garris’ recordings include a series of independently tested music and meditation CDs that earned The National Health & Wellness Stamp of Approval.

Her latest CD, Mystic’s Nine, was released 11/1/2016 and won a Global Music Award. The song Mystic Sea from the same album won the 16th Annual IMA (Independent Music Awards) VOX POP WINNER award, New Age Song category. Her music is available on Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Sirius XM, MoodMusic, Muzak, Music Choice, and more.


Dyan Garris started playing the piano when she was four years old. Her mother bought a baby grand piano and soon thereafter brought in a piano teacher. The piano teacher was an interesting choice because he was totally blind. 
At the first lesson Dyan asked him how he was going to teach her to play the piano since he could not see, and she asked him to take off his glasses so she could see his eyes. He obliged. They were beautiful blue and they were definitely blind. But even then through those obscured windows, she saw his soul. He was brilliant.


And he said to her, “Child, we do not need to be able to ‘see’ to play this instrument. We only need to be able to feel the music. Music is not about seeing. It’s about feeling.” With that, he took her hands and placed them atop of his and they played the most wonderful music.
Garris is a classically trained pianist and violinist. She became and maintained first chair, first violin throughout high school orchestra and still loves the way the two instruments blend together in perfect harmony. 


Her interest in meditation and music for relaxation goes back to early 1993 which is when she first began creating guided meditations. Music itself, of course, has been a way of life.

Featured Track: Dyan Garris-Forest Whispers

Dyan Garris is an award winning new age artist and author. She is multi-talented and touches upon all of the arts within the new age genre and is a classical trained on the piano and violin.

"Forest Whispers" is a recent single track that is the feature I speak of.  It is a new age journey as beautiful, natural, and inviting as the cover indicates.

The birds are chirping with delight as the sounds of new age combined with world music fill in the space around you.

It takes you there immediately. That my friends is exactly what any recording artist wants!

Featured Track: Grant Maloy Smith-I See You

Grant Maloy Smith has a beautiful track titled "I See You."  Grant is the performing artist and it was co-written by Mike Greenly.
 
This is one of the most moving and powerful tracks I have heard in quite some time. The video is what really gets you. It will touch your heart and soul.

The acoustic guitar and vocals are a perfect match and I felt chills and wanted to cry watching the video. It reminded me of those that have passed and the direction we are all headed one day.

It was released with the support of Masterpiece Living, an organization dedicated to creating better lives for our elders.
They adopted the track due to their work.

This is country, folk, and Americana at its very best and if this track does not touch you in some way you had better check for a pulse!

Featured Track: Nick Duane-That's What You Want

Nick Duane has a new single out titled "That's What You Want." 

The fuzz guitar sound throughout the rockin' track reminded me fondly of that buzzing sound on The Ventures track "2000 Pound Bee." It is one of the first things I could think of. But there was more to it than that...

I thought of Bowie being an influence in his sound and approach. I am sure there are lot of influences there but that was top of mind for me.

I really enjoyed the track so much. It is a combination of rock, alternative, and garage with a punk attitude. All the flavors that provide endless energy for listeners to stay tuned!  Just like he Nicks says in the track "Too Cool For School."

Check out the stream and video provided. 

Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck 






Nick Duane is an alternative-rock indie songwriter whose style has embraced a wide range of musical genres and influences. His songwriting brings to mind the classic pop-rock tracks that came out of both England and the US during the late 80s and 90s. He has played both Bass and Guitar with several New England regional acts and is a long time advocate for original music.

Featured Track: mariaFausta - I´m Betting on You

mariaFausta has a killer new track out titled "I'm Betting on You." 

And I am betting on you, the listeners, that if you like to rock you are going to love this track! I sure did.

Maria can sing and the song just kicks ass from start to finish. I think if the album that follows this track continues with the same formula that she will really have a substantial following.

I have included the stream and the video to check out so please do!

Featured Track: Andrea Arpetti-Quite A Show

Andrea Arpetti is a musician, vocalist and music teacher. Straight away he sounds like one of those diverse multi tasking indie artists, and he most definitely is.

His new track is "Quite A Show." It is a combination of dance/electronica, complete with the thumping beats, which drives the track, and some acoustic guitar to give it another layer, and a nice touch I may add.

Andrea has a very clear vocal style that sounds like it could wrap itself around just about any track in a large cross section of genres. Not everyone is blessed with that kind of talent and capability. With his education and knowledge of music and all the talents at his disposal, I can envision a long and successful career with the right backing in place.

Featured Track: Erik Scott-Wings

Erik Scott is getting ready to release another solo album titled A Trick of the Wind.  This is following his critically acclaimed In The Company of Clouds, which I had the distinct pleasure of reviewing.

To give you a taste of what is to come we are presenting the track sampling of "Wings," the opening track on the album.

Erik takes his bass and makes it a lead instrument on every track and "Wings" is a fantastic curtain opener.

Erik knows how to make his bass sing and it takes the listener off the ground, seemingly allowing you to spread your "Wings" and fly away.

Erik Scott is a gifted musician delivering the goods once again through tracks like "Wings."

Featured Track-My Creative Laziness-Just Great

My Creative Laziness (Ricardo Flores) sounds like he got some energy and put it to good use by recording a jumpy track called "Just Great."

I think the track really is "Just Great." It has an alternative garage rock kind of sound that I really enjoy. 

Tracks like this prove that less is more and Rick shows how its done with riffs that reminded me of Weezer.

The man definetly has talent and knows how to channel that laziness! So yes, his "creative laziness" did work out well with this snappy track!

Give it a listen and see what you think. If you feel its "Just Great," then leave your comments.

Featured Track: Bunny Sigler - Angel Eyes

Bunny Sigler's smooth vocal style is perfect for reaching back to times that have past. The days when jazz and lounge singers were most popular. Think Sinatra, Bennett etc. and yes Mr. Bunny Sigler. He is not a household name but he can sing a song and tell a story just as well as the folks that are legendary in that realm. The main point here is that he is still doing and very well mind you.

The video provided is in black and white to provide the proper setting for his "Angel Eyes."  This is a significant remake of an Ella Fitzgerald song and a fitting tribute to her legacy.

Kick back, turn it up and relax to Bunny Sigler's "Angel Eyes" - with the video or stream and set the way back machine to way back....

Featured Track: Souleye - Wildman (Ft. Lynx)

Souleye is a home boy from Sturbridge, Massachusetts!  It's great to hear such an innovative artist hailing from my home state.

I generally do not care for the rap or hip hop but when it's done tastefully with a mixture of different styles of music then it has a chance. In this case I actually loved it! The combination of the beautiful vocals of a young lady and Souleye really finds a way to get under your skin, in a good way.

Check out the Soundcloud stream, this is music that defines "out of the box."
