Why Can’t You Stay: Las Vegas singer-songwriter Ashley Marie disappears into the night on ‘Unravel’

After the underground success of her well-received debut single ‘Gravity‘, Ashley Marie is at her breathtaking best as she tries to keep things together on the wonderfully soul-searching track ‘Unravel‘.

Ashley Marie is a youthful Las Vegas, Nevada-based poet and indie-pop artist. She fuses an emotive blend of evocatively conscious-stirring music, that has you feeling in a compellingly contemplative mood.

Her sensually elegant vocals has your beating heart in a serious spin like a washing machine, as you think back to someone you cared for who kept on running away – as you wish you had gone after them – rather than wondering why they left.

Sung with a thoughtful ambiance on a body shaking soundscape which has you thoroughly enthralled as you look up at the dazzling stars for guidance, you feel an air of regret as to why she is in this state of mind. Ashley wants to be calm like her future lover –  but right now – she needs to get this feeling out of her system and figure everything out alone.

Unravel‘ from the new Las Vegas, Nevada-based indie-pop solo artist and poet Ashley Marie, is an enchanting track all about wondering why you can’t seem to smile and be truly happy. Made with a stunning honesty from a dazzling musician with so much potential and who sings with such realness attached – this is a highly reflective vivid picture – as you find the mirror and wonder why things can’t be simple for once.

Sometimes you just need to vanish like a ghost for a while, to truly find your destined path and be truly free, as you work out who the right soul for you really is.

Lovingly taken from his debut one thousand-mile journey album called ‘U.S. 285‘, this is all about finding that true meaning and purpose in life, as Charlson returns with the reflective single called ‘You Say‘.

Charlson is a thoughtful alt-rock artist based out of Boston and Las Vegas in the USA. He makes that perfectly tuned road trip music, that has you thinking deeply about those flashback moments you wish you could take back, as well as those memories you want to make going forward.

Their eyes are telling you the truth and they are locking away information that you need to know, as the relationship ends you wish that your love could burn bright like it was before.

The late Prince of Vegas: Luccy2X’s music lives on through posthumous single ‘Fuego’

Charles Vailes Jr aka Luccy2X was a thriving Las Vegas, Nevada-based Hip-Hop artist who was senselessly shot down early last year when he was just 20 years old, tragically leaving behind his distraught family and three-month old young daughter.

Known to those close to him as  C’Jaay, he will be remembered as a genuine young man who only had good vibes. He was sadly killed in a drive-by shooting by an acquaintance he knew- in an apparent jealousy-motivated moment of madness.

Instead of closing the door on his music forever and bolting it shut, his beloved Mother Kristal has decided to show the world what her son’s music was all about through his song ‘Fuego‘. This is a hugely courageous act in the name of her late son and is a touching moment that shows how much she believed in and loved him.

The track itself is a true street-hop bounce of a gem that shows you how incredibly talented he really was. His fire flow vibrates through the speakers and you can’t help but vibe with this on full volume. You just know he was set for big things as his lyrics talk of rising up and stepping into new company to fulfill his undeniable potential, while also dealing with jealous haters who didn’t like seeing him succeed.

Taken off the just-released new posthumous album 11: 11, you can support his family by streaming on Spotify and also follow his social accounts via IG and FB.

Your loving Mom misses you greatly C’Jaay and she will never stop telling everyone about how special you were as a human being and how talented you were as an artist. Rest in peace up above.

Movie Monroe – Tie Dye: Honest Humble Hip Hop

Movie Monroe is a breakthrough Trap artist that’s taking the scene by storm with his passionate and progressive style which will have you hooked from the first verse. His latest track Tie Dye is a simplistic haunting of truths expelled over his subtle poetic lyrical flow which provides a poignantly resonate experience.

The Las Vegas based Alternative Melo Trap Rap Hip Hop enigma has produced a flawless 9 track album Aura Ultra, Tie Dye is just one of the standout tracks that hits you with hypnotising melodies and inches you closer into developing an affinity with this charismatic trap artist. I’ve often found Trap to be one of the most compelling sub genres of Hip Hop, the way that the attention is not demanded, it’s carefully extradited through evocative feeling and 80’s minimal beats that allow you to breathe throughout the track. It doesn’t pound with grandiosity or mediocrity it’s humanity stripped bare, wounded and raw. Monroe’s whole album is a delectable experience which proves to be the perfect platform to expose his versatile style.

Movie Monroe proves to be the ultimate Trap visionary with his latest hit Moneyman

Movie Monroe may just be my favourite emerging R&B artists of 2017, the sounds are lavish, poignant and styled in a way that David Lynch would even come to envy. The sound to Moneyman has been polished to perfection by NEDARB, the beat flows with ubiquitous ease, whatever mood you’re in, this sound has the potential to grab your mood with its individualistic trap styling. Monroe doesn’t demand attention in an obvious way, he puts out his lyrics in an almost shy capacity that allows you to really sink your teeth into what he’s putting out on the sound waves.

The ridiculously catchy song was released just a few weeks ago when the Las Vegas based rapper Moneyman gripped the R&B & Trap audience with a captivating wave of euphoria with its Melo Trap sound. The minimalist beat allows you to become enthralled by the lyrics that are put before you, curtesy of the exponentially talented Movie Monroe.

Monroe certainly doesn’t play by any rule book I’ve ever read when it comes to music. He flows with individualistic style that will soon have you begging for more of his enigmatic sound.
