Chasing that rush: North Carolina Pop singer Natalie Carr knows the party needs to end on lyric video for ‘Blue Lights’

Her voice is so real and relevant. Natalie Carr shows us what life is like on the run while chasing those tempting tattoos for a little bit too long on ‘Blue Lights’.

You love that feeling of danger and partying wherever and whenever you want. You know deep down however that this needs to end otherwise you will be seeing those dreaded lights a bit too close and things will change forever. You keep yourself close to that partner for the night but also have a plan to get out if the going gets too dangerous.

“I’ve found my stride in being honest in my writing, for everyday people, like myself, to relate.”- Natalie Carr

Her music is refreshingly straight forward and she gets to the core of the story without too much fuss. This is all about having fun and enjoying each moment as life comes, you wish it wouldn’t stop. However, you know that it needs to end and you should move on to better things. So many of us find ourselves stuck in this maze of bright lights, the chase that is so hot to begin with and then it burns out like a used cigarette.

With an honest R&B/Pop style that sizzles the ears, she is the ultimate partner in crime. The late nights, going on fun adventures lasts for a while and these will be memories forever. However it only takes one slip up to have this moment crash down like a pack of cards into dust and doom, locked up for something so silly that shouldn’t have really happened.

Blue Lights’ from US Pop singer-songwriter Natalie Carr is a breath-taking track and the visuals only make this song a sultry view and listen for the lost hearts out there, frustrated with lock-down days. The temptation and urge to explore again is sometimes too much to pass up. Taking time to take a step back however, is the safer but less fun way to go.

See this exciting video here on her YouTube and find out more about Natalie on her IG and Facebook.

North Carolina Emcee Trigga Delgoto raps about tough times with ”Favoritism”

Charlotte, North Carolina is the hometown for Rapper Trigga Delgoto. He is back with ”Favoritism” and this is a sad song all about life growing up in the hood and how he regrets some decisions that he has made. This is an emotional track full of hurt, jail, violence and hatred. An introspective look into the life of an emcee that is going though a tough time as he reflects on his life.

Trigga Delgoto is a rapper with a raw flow who puts it all on the line with this street banger. This song puts me into a dark place and I feel in a somber mood. We are placed into a story that is all too familiar. Trigga had to grow up very quickly and we are led into some tough memories about having to choose sides when barely an adult and having issues with his family. Adding to this life story is fathering a child and now being into lean and too much stress. This is a deep track and one that deserves respect.

YouTube is the place to hear this song and get his whole collection to your ears.

Artist Vice Gets Cleared For Landing



Jot It Down Get It Out by Artist Vice

Rock music often gets a bad reputation for its cliche, bombast, its often cartoon like qualities. Throw in a bit of pop sensibility and you start to balance those negative qualities, add a dash of widescreen cinematic vibes, some anthemic qualities and a stadium ready alt-rock approach and you have something altogether more interesting, in fact you have Artist Vice’s Cleared For Landing.

It walks a line of pop addictiveness and rock robustness, of soaring harmonies and deftly layered musical textures, a balancing act which is difficult to say the least. Too far one way and you fall into the ungainly plod of the rock beast, moving the other way leaves you in the saccharine, throwaway territories of short shelf life pop, but get it right, as Artist Vice has done here, and the result is a mature and radio friendly sound that will ensure both popularity and longevity in equal measure.
