We Had Good Times: Brave Country singer and 4x cancer survivor hero Ryan HamNer reminisces about that ‘Blank Stare Goodbye’

As he distinctly remembers the one September on that beautiful beach that lit his beating heart alive like fireworks, Ryan HamNer won’t ever forget the laughs and the wind blowing through her hair on his reflective new single called ‘Blank Stare Goodbye‘.

Ryan HamNer is an extremely courageous 4x cancer survivor and a soulful Columbus, Georgia-born indie Country singer-songwriter and esteemed author. He has a real story to tell that automatically makes your eyes water, as you feel his pain and totally admire his movie-like journey, to helping others who are facing the hard road he went down.

Growing up, Hamner underwent cancer treatment at ages 6, 9, 11, and 21. To cope, he focused on music, often recording his favorite songs off of the Weekly Top 40 to listen to on his Walkman during chemo sessions.” ~ Ryan HamNer

As he sings with such a sad tone about that day he wishes was real again, so he could see her close up and hear that cute laugh again, you feel the ever-lasting love to the one that got away. This is the remembrance anthem, that is important to deal with,  so that you may move into warmer waters again.

Other than recording music, Hamner also operates Bamba Box, a small gift box company that sends care packages to kids with cancer, foster kids, and other children going through hard times. Every Bamba Box recipient has a chance to win a virtual visit and concert with Ryan.” ~ Ryan HamNer

Blank Stare Goodbye‘ from the brave Columbus, Georgia-born Country artist and author Ryan HamNer, is a love lost story which he will remember forever.

You Came From The Light: The incomparable Bridget Barkan slays the fame-hungry vampires mightily on the inspiring anthem ‘F**k You Money’

As the burning fire inside her pulsating veins flowed over massively to perform her strikingly real music again as the world shutdown, Bridget Barkan tells us straight up how she feels about those who just greedily take whatever is given despite the soul-stealing consequences, with a stunning effort that will surely grab your attention mightily on ‘F**k You Money‘.

Bridget Barkan is a wonderfully talented New York-based and multi-hyphenate film and theatre actor, director, poet, activist, and indie RnB/soul singer-songwriter. She is also impressively a teaching artist at Carnegie Hall, working with incarcerated youth and young mothers.

Some have said she is like the secret child of Cindy Sherman and John Waters, raised by the ghost of Janis Joplin.” – Bridget Barkan

Her melodiously elegant yet powerful voice is toned so perfectly, as he slides gracefully into your willing speakers – she sings with such precision and breathtaking meaning – her style is ferociously independent – as she never forgets where she came from.

Her beloved late Father and Uncle taught her so well and she stands for the things that mean something – hard work and being true to yourself no matter what others sneakily offer you – as she refuses that blood money and going against anything that calls her morals into question. She was told when she moved to Hollywood that people would try and grab her valuable soul away so she created a character called Mr. 1985 New York – a combination of her Dad and Uncle –  and shows a fitting tribute here to their everlasting spirit and life-changing advice.

As a singer, she toured the world with pop glam band Scissor Sisters who opened for Lady Gaga, sung with Lily Allen, drag legend Joey Arias and many more.” – Bridget Barkan

F**k You Money‘ from the multi-talented and totally authentic New York-based singer, actress, director and that true all-round entertainer Bridget Barkan, is an monumentally remarkable effort that is one of those pure songs you can’t forget easily. This is the insightful lesson of being rather careful with your hard-earned money – as it is so easy to spend it on things that you don’t really need – or gaining it in ways which will have you avoiding the mirror for a while, as you are so ashamed of yourself.

Your trusty gut is your only guide to true self-awareness and that rare enlightenment, which this world class human has in abundance. This is the only way to be truly grounded after all and after listening to this tremendous track, you will probably feel that this is the elusive anthem, that we all needed to find in 2021.

Tell Me You Feel It Too: Norwood wants to be truly loved on ‘Maskerade’

As he casually scrolls on his phone so that that his lonely lips may feel alive and burning hot again with that perfect love to fill up the exhausting emptiness, Norwood thoughtfully wonders if he will find the one so that he may finally stop this pointless ‘Maskerade‘.

Norwood is a vibrant and high-spirited indie electronic dance artist and vocal coach, who grew up home-schooled in Atlanta, Georgia.

After feeling so stuck inside with church and books the only thing he was told to focus on, you feel his energetic nature flowing wonderfully on his exciting music creation, as he urges his fans to break free too. Love, acceptance, and empowerment, is what life should all be about anyway.

There’s nothing I love more than looking out into a crowd and seeing faces of every color, nationality, and gender smiling back at me. I try to make the world a more equal, inclusive place in my art and in my day-to-day life, so whenever I see that ideal mirrored in an audience, it’s always a special moment for me.”  ~ Norwood

He sings with such a passionate freedom which is so vividly welcoming, and has your formally sad soul feeling so enthralled again. There is a passionate urging in his voice for the walls to fall down, as he performs with such intent and that ultimate purpose.

My goal during every performance is for people to escape for a few hours, dance like no one is watching, and feel empowered to love themselves exactly as they are and express themselves freely.” ~ Norwood

This the story of wishing that the norm may return so that you can meet someone face to face, as the social distance is so weak and tiresome for your body, which needs some real love. You call for this to happen and are manifesting this to the stars, who are hopefully listening to your urges.

Maskerade‘ from the high-octane Atlanta, Georgia indie electronic artist Norwood, is a stunning release which is totally honest and remarkably relevant in this stagnate world. He is a real bolt of lightning into the world, that needs to be admired for its inspirational boost to us all. That true partner is all we really desire, not the constant finger-tiring swiping to nothingness.
