Lindsay Brazell stands up for the ladies with defiant ”Placeholder”

Lindsay Brazell is one inspiring woman. This fantastic Indie-Folk artist from Simpsonville in South Carolina, is back with her new song called ”Placeholder”. This is a statement song with a beautiful melody and a real message for both young and old.

Currently doing online music lessons while schools are closed up, Lindsay is certainly keeping herself busy right now. The Music educator/singer-songwriter and blogger, has released ”Placeholder” to the world and it’s a defiant message that no woman should be messed around with and played. Feeling used after being cheated on is a horrible feeling and you can hear the frustration in Lindsay’s voice. Her message is that this shouldn’t happen to any woman in the world while drawing in previous experiences to express herself eloquently.

With a soothing voice, thought out lyrics with meaning and soul, Lindsay Brazell’sPlaceholder” deserves a place in our hearts and ears. This is a beautifully crafted song that has a message that is needed in today’s society of quick love and being force-fed bad role models. Lindsay Brazell is the type of woman and inspiring energy that that kids need to be listening to during lunch breaks.

Matias Malagardis – Forget: Organic Acoustic Textured Harmony

There are very few tracks which are as stylishly resonant as Matias Malagardis’ debut single Forget. The up & coming artist has proven that whilst he may be a newcomer on the scene other Folk Acoustic artists should be audibly quaking in their boots considering his effortless exuberance of acoustic rhythm. Unhindered by the limited chord progressions offered by the acoustic guitar Matias creates an organic and textured harmony, through off-beat rhythm and tentatively sweet strumming. In synergy with the cathartically poignant instrumentals, Matias vocals are barely more than a sweet whisper which ethereally rises above the guitar to provide a soundscape which is almost impossible to find a flaw in. The lyrics run as you’d expect from an acoustic track romantically poised and instilling a sweet sense of longing.

If you’re a fan of acoustic artists such as Damien Rice, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz and Ben Howard, I can personally guarantee you’ll adore Matias Malagardis.
