Simply genuine meals: heyJ is so ‘Hungry For Your Love’ on sensational new single

With a voice so crisply toasted into that ultimate affection for our cold souls, heyJ warms up the anxious heart on her stunning new single called ‘Hungry For Your Love‘.

heyJ is an outstanding Nashville, Tennessee-based, Belmont University Music Business student, New Orleans-born and raised indie jazz-pop singer-songwriter. She breathlessly creates music about unfortunate past heartbreaks, future love and learning about herself, in this often-confusing world around us.

Her love for music is so easily apparent and after starting her journey when she was merely a young pup at aged six, her powerful voice shines through the darkness of present times, to illuminate the sky above.

This is the true story of a wise-beyond-her-years young singer, who passionately craves those simple moments away from the common moments from reality TV and what you are supposed to do when in love. She is clearly after that deep passion which fills her body with joy, as true companionship and learning together, is what makes her feel alive. Being together with someone genuine heart-to-heart, is all she wants really, as she looks for that special soul that only has pure intentions.

Hungry For Your Love‘ from the dazzling talent of the beautifully enchanting heyJ, is that sweetly-coated memorable delicious soundscape, that makes your heart beat a bit faster, as the juices lather your senses to love again, no matter what happened before.

Life is all about taking a chance sometimes to find your special soul, who is out there if you look in the right places.

Hear this wonderful single on Spotify and watch her rise to the top on IG.

Gully has brought optimism with him into the new year with their single ‘Carpe Diem’

Seizing the moment may be harder than usual in 2021, unless that means grabbing the fanciest biscuits in Tesco, but it’s still possible to indulge in unforgettable experiences, such as hitting play on ‘Carpe Diem’, the latest single  released by UK Indie Jazz artist, Gully.

After gaining plenty of traction on the radio waves, thanks to Radio Bristol and BBC introducing, with his debut EP,  ‘Student Blues’, Gully, and his 6-piece band, teamed up with producer Jax Beats to create a mix as timeless as it is fresh. The contemporary Indie inclinations weave amongst the roots-deep flowing Jazz licks with such natural ease, it becomes impossible not to melt into the cathartic grooves of the shimmering soundscape.

If your soul melted at The Arctic Monkeys’ cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘You Know I’m No Good’, Carpe Diem will undoubtedly have the same evocative impact.

You can check out Carpe Diem for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Debut song ‘Revolutionary Days’ from Poole singer Aaron James is a strong effort about real change

Revolutionary Days‘ from Poole singer Aaron James is a strong effort about real change that is of real meaning.

Aaron James is a singer-songwriter and musician from Poole in Dorset. He trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and this is a young musician who is putting all his efforts into music. There are Jazz, Soul and Pop influences all over this marvel of a track, you can feel the skill on each note which is glorious to hear.

This song is inspired by a deep inner longing for change on a revolutionary scale, and a feeling that change is coming, and can happen if we want it. The song is about a ‘spiritual revolution’, a changing of hearts and minds, and an awakening to the truth and standing up for what is right and just. It can relate to a revolution for human rights and freedom, against racism and sexism, for the preservation of the planet and the environment, for peace, against war, and for love and care for our fellow neighbor. It comes from a feeling that words are no longer enough, we need revolutionary action and now is the time for revolutionary days.

Revolutionary Days‘ from Aaron James is his debut and this is a top effort for his first released track. This song is made with a fierce attitude, his mindset is strong and he wants change. This is a feeling that millions of us are having currently, so many things have changed but not in the way that we want them to. A top song with real meaning is always welcome and you can feel the passion. This is music that means something and should be celebrated.

Fernando Peters has made their intriguingly exploratory debut with the album “Living Low”

Fernando Peters may not be a household name, but the artists who he has composed for and played as a session artist with are.

The Brazilian artist has kicked off their solo career with the intriguingly explorative album “Living Low”. The tracks it contains may not fall neatly into any genre category, but they safely fall into the realm of cathartic ingenuity.

The best introduction to their indulgently transcendent style is “Island Inside”. With smooth licks of Jazz within the ambient soundscape along with undefinable artfully intimate textures, it’s no great stretch to say that you’ve never heard anything like this before.

The vocals which resonate as ethereal whispers slide in at the mid-point in the progressive soundscape which may be unpredictable at every evolution, but you’re safe in the deftly experienced hands of Fernando Peters.

You can check out Island Inside along with the rest of the album by heading over to Spotify.
