Gospel Hip hop artist Sinseer shows sincere appreciation for his ‘Mama’ (feat. Wave)

After experiencing war firsthand after his stint in the dusty streets of Afghanistan, Sinseer sends out an India Got The Beats produced track via the incredible new single about telling her that he knows that she raised him right on ‘Mama(feat. Wave).

Jacory Thomas aka Sinseer is a Swainsboro, Georgia-raised indie Christian/Gospel Hip hop artist who loves to try out different genres to extend his music knowledge to unforeseen levels of enlightenment.

After receiving an unlawful DUI that challenged his honorable discharge, Sinseer valiantly defeated the court system. He left the armed services and settled into civilian life. However, that was the first of two run-ins with the law. The second, though baseless, led to him serving a five-month stint that encroached upon his first-semester enrollment in college. His case became the first of many that were an arbitrary act of injustice enforced by a rogue arm of law enforcement.” ~ Sinseer

Flowing with a sensational single that shows you that the good guys are still around despite all the darkness that can swamp the souls of so many, Sinseer is on top form with a track that sends your mind into a state of memories as you look back at those who looked after you when you needed it most.

Fresh off his time served, the artist poured everything into his music. He bared his soul in every track. That unwavering, passionate feel continues to be stamped on all his releases ever since.” ~ Sinseer

Mama‘ from Swainsboro, Georgia-raised indie Christian/Gospel Hip hop artist Sinseer, is an inspirational single about showing that he loves that special woman who gave him the right grounding that never knew he needed while growing up, but certainly knows now that she only wanted the best for him. Rapped with a blessing-wrapped attitude and an honest melody, this is the kind of track that might have small tears brewing from your eyes as you look above and show your gratefulness.

Mike Marshall reached the pinnacle of impassioned pious pop with his debut single, Jesus.

Columbus, GA singer-songwriter Mike Marshall introduced his momentously evocative vocals to the airwaves in 2020 through his debut single, Jesus. If you are yet to introduce yourselves to his impassioned pious gospel pop style, there’s no better track to acquaint yourselves with.

Sonically, the debut single, which features Darren Parrish, carries all of the hallmarks of an epic soul-pop ballad. Yet, instead of fixating on interpersonal storms, the single stands as a testament to Mike Marshall’s mission to introduce humanity to the love of and healing which comes hand in hand with faith.

Even if it doesn’t leave you inclined to run off to church, the incandescent soul in the celestially arresting soundscape is enough to lift you alone; the gorgeously layered choral vocals are enough to leave you reaching for the tissues. Based on his debut, we can’t wait to hear what his debut LP, Come On In, will deliver. Come On In was created via a crowd-funded campaign, and it will be due for release in March 2022. It scarcely comes as a surprise that his community wants to get behind his talent. Our radar is an infinitely more vibrantly soulful place with his name on it.

Jesus. Is now available to stream on Spotify.

Donnell Isaac inspires passion in our uncertain landscape in Everyone Needs Love featuring Sonny King

https://soundcloud.com/donnellisaac/everyone-needs-love-remix-feat-sonny-king

Soul singer Donnell Isaac’s latest single, Everyone Needs Love, is an RnB wisdom bomb that will even get romantic nihilists into the groove and mood. With the gospel nuances, the US-based artist prays at the altar of passion and invites his listeners to kneel with him.

The remix featuring Sonny King spills sublime indie-funk while it serves the essential reminder that ‘everyone needs love like they need a heartbeat’. The romantically indulgent track does plenty more than point out a life necessity; it proves that love doesn’t come easy, but when it does, it’s matchless.

The remix of Everyone Needs Love is now available to stream on SoundCloud.

DONALD NIGHT – Broken: A Sermon in a Soundscape

Christian & Gospel artist, DONALD NIGHT, released his soulfully sermonic single, Broken, earlier this year; with old school blues nuances feeding into the melody behind the stridently passionate vocals as they instil hope and resilience in the listener, Broken succeeds in lifting spirits to the same level as NIGHT’s.

With so many people out there self-diagnosing themselves as broken, DONALD NIGHT’s single is a timely triumph as it reminds listeners that giving up is never the only option. Even those who don’t find themselves religiously inclined will find salvation in this single. For the pious, Broken has all the makings of a mood-boosting playlist staple.

Alt Hip Hop Luminary XENO Waxes Lyrical in His Evocative Feat of Soul-Infused Trip Hop METHUSELAH

Finding hip hop that hits as hard as much as it inspires doesn’t happen every day, and that is just one of the reasons to delve into the sophomore album from the alt-rap revolutionary XENO.

His latest album, TRANSCENDENCE, fuses elements of soul, trip-hop and alt-electronica to feed the soul a cuisine that it won’t be accustomed to but will quickly learn to crave.

The lead single, METHUSELAH starts with minor piano keys and phantasmal vocals swathed in atmospheric effect; when the beat kicks in, it’s impossible not to get caught up within the trippy multi-layered high vibe hit. Every ounce of attitude in the mix reflects XENO’s intent as an artist; to promote positivity and passion and give power to those in pursuit of their dreams.

Nothing quite compares to an exceptionally talented artist urging their audience to feed their hunger.

XENO’s album, TRANSCENDENCE, is now available to stream and purchase on all major platforms via this link.
