‘Ghost Town’ from MikePowerNYC is a real story about the world and the damage caused by humans

New single ‘Ghost Town‘ from MikePowerNYC is a real story about the world and the damage caused by humans and terrible decisions.

New York City-based Mike had to play some slide guitar because has unfortunately ripped open his finger, running it up the neck. Adversity sometimes leads to opportunity due to the ghostly sound of the slide with harmonics interwoven. Sometimes things go wrong but that is actually leading you into the right path. This is a great story about how a song was made and this insight is brilliant.

MikePowerNYC sings with such passion and grit, he is a fine singer with real stories on ‘Ghost Town‘. The world is in a strange place and it’s a scary place. This is a man who performs for the art, he loves music and this is his message to the rest of the globe. He is honest and for that, we need to listen. This is a rare indie real gem of music, sounds that show a growing frustration to the world. This is a wise poet who sings with meaning.

NYC band Lower Power are fully-charged on ‘All About Me’

Lower Power charge in with the politically aware new Rock banger called ‘All About Me‘.

New York City band Lower Power rages with fire and self-confessed wild and honest abandon. They speak on the important topics that usually get brushed under the carpet. Issues like gun violence, mental health, war, status of women, the rise to power of evil people that take over with their greedy style are all mentioned here. This is a video that cuts into the real problems that modern day society face, both in the USA and the world.

The story goes that the band came together when Pat met Jon and Ben playing at an 80’s Karaoke gig. Singing at the top of the lungs I’m sure as they are all passionate music fans, first and foremost. Pat asked them if they’d like to play in a punk rock band. they said yes. Pat met Konrad at a bar where he was playing a country gig and asked him if he wanted to play in a punk band. He said yes and the rest as they say, is history. They had two 2 hour rehearsals a month apart. The band went into Konrad’s and recorded the basic tracks in just 4 hours. This shows how energetic the band is and they wanted their music out there as soon as possible to spread their message, far and wide.

Lower Power rock out with the best intentions on their new single ‘All About Me‘. Their video and song strikes a topic that we all need to be aware about.

”Come With Me” is J.Roze at his finest on R&B latest single

J.Roze is a young R&B artist who has just dropped the party banger ”Come With Me” that illuminates that current late night vibe.

Omar Langshaw, formally known as J. Roze is a smooth Indie Pop artist from South Jamaica, New York in the USA. Jamaican culture has fired his passion, love and thirst to learn all about music. From the age of 15, J. Roze’s curiosity to know more about creating music and perfecting his sound led him to find a loyal group of creative artists that showed him how to record and produce music to a high standard. This push to go solo has clearly fired up this young artist to get his name out there and create.

J.Roze has a kind of energy that shines here and I like ”Come With Me”. This is all about the girl that you care for but she doesn’t want to commit just right now. This is a tough experience and you look out for her but she is so carefree and in her own bubble. ”Come With Me” is a fine release from J.Roze.
