Trying to fit Cheyenne Benton into a box to describe her zealous sound is almost an impossible task. The emerging artist has an infectious aura over her which makes her experimental Jazz Pop Soul track one of the most pioneering sounds that I’ve heard in a long time. Cheyenne’s vocal prowess puts her in the same league as vocalists such as Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin and Lady Gaga. Yet with her sound, she’s orchestrated a completely new sensation, infused with a little Jim Jones style pious Jazz. The instrumentals have an awesome funk edge, that makes Dead & Gone ironically inspiriting, yet they almost pertain a Pop Punk edge similar to acts such as Paramore. It’s a universal sound that reputably deserves recognition, even my flowery words can’t do Dead & Gone justice, It’s more than just a track, it’s a ethereal experience that enthrals you through every blast of the trombone, every tap of the keys, every blast of the bass, and every celestial word.
