Contemporary Pop Ballad

TIBIBI proves that romanticism still thrives in dystopic times through her celestial ballad, Aura


‘Aura’ is the third confessionally passionate pop track from the alternative singer-songwriter, producer and engineer, TIBIBI. The dark and moody yet ethereally tender contemporary ballad spins a tale of loneliness and absolution through love. In a melodically powerful way, it reminds you that life is no fairy tale, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t wind up finding the salvation that you yearned for.

I can’t help admire how TIBIBI explored the fraught emotions as deeply as she delved into the euphoria of finally finding someone on your level. Aura is easily one of the sincerest songs that you will hear this year.

Aura is due for release on September 28th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

Laela Giovanna – Wish I Would Have: A Tenderly-Imploring Piano Pop Ballad

NYC singer-songwriter & producer Laela Giovanna has released her tenderly-imploring piano pop single “Wish I Would Have” which allows you to find your own fraught regret within the stunningly extended vocal notes.

Think along the lines of Christina Aguilera’s iconic hit ‘Beautiful’, and you’ll be close to the mark. But no comparison could ever elucidate the striking authentic evocative appeal in this passionately stormy, melodically mellifluous track.

Wish I Would Have isn’t without its lament, but as Laela Giovanna runs through the verses, you hear her ascension from the ashes as she proverbially rises and you’ll get to share in the empowerment.

My only criticism is that the provocatively poised single should rank higher in the Pop charts.

You can listen to Wish I Would Have for yourselves here.

Inside is a resounding example of how an artist offering introspection in their music doesn’t just share their intimate thoughts and emotions, but how their honesty can heal. Hit play on Inside and become overwhelmed by the sincerity of the self-assurance which has been found through the refusal to fall apart.

The celestially reflective soundscape orchestrated by Barb Morrison created the perfect platform for Leah Martin’s invitingly consoling vocals.
