Ben Burke releases latest single The Winds Of Change: Spreading positivity through the powerful creations of music and sound

Ben Burke released his latest track ‘’The Winds Of Change’’. A song that sheds a positive vision of hope for the world and humanity.

A mixture of Rock, Soul Music and Pop Music, sharing similarities to artist like James Bay, he has this soft calming voice and through every lyric there’s this roar emotion that cuts through it, trying to let his listeners hear what he has to say through suspenseful high-pitch vocals.

The instrumentals consist of acoustic riffs, clashes of the drums and the fast pace overpowering sound of the piano. Towards the end everything gets that little bit heavier and quicker as the vocals begin to pick up there pace and this overwhelming feeling of suspense, it just shows how much a change in the overall sound can engage a listener a lot more and makes the track a lot more intriguing to listen too.

Sofia Werner drops her killer hit Leave Me Alone: A pure talented and creative Pop track

Latina-American singer-songwriter Sofia Werner has taken the music world by storm and created such an amazing track, it’s one that deserves so much recognition. ‘’Leave Me Alone’’ is definitely one that is a hit in itself.

With only being 16 years of age, Sofia has taken her creativity and determination and turned it into something magical. There is so much she still has left to learn about the music industry, but with only being young, she stands out so much already and her new track proves just why.

It’s simple, not in a bad way, there’s nothing that’s too in your face and nothing too boring, it’s just right. Sofia’s vocal ranges are insane, she hits the high notes perfectly and she can transition between ranges fast but it still flows so well. Going from low-pitch vocals to a more acapella style.

There’s so much emotion and feeling that goes with Sofia’s vocals which makes it so much easier to listen to and connect with. Throughout this track you can hear the upset and anger in the voice and as well as the lyrical approach it gives off this poignant meaning of heartbreak, it’s done so beautifully.

Sofia Werner has proved just why we love Pop music so much and even though she’s only just started out and has lots of time to grow and learn, she definitely has our attention. We can’t wait to see what Sofia gets up to next!

Kela Parker releases new single Come Spring: A truly mesmerising piece of music

Los-Angeles Folk singer-songwriter Kela Parker has recently released her new single ‘’Come Spring’’. An enticing and mysterious track, with dark yet angelic vocals and slow soothing instrumentals.

Kela has such unique vocals, the style ranges it’s something that you wouldn’t normally hear on a daily basis which is what makes this track so enchanting. There’s this rather chilling instrumental at the start, with the sound of a deep breath flowing alongside. Then within the first few seconds your hooked in as Kela’s vocals take the track to a whole new level, sounding fairly brittle at times, but as she gradually starts to go higher her voice is very strong and melodic.

This whole track makes you feel this curious amount of suspense, but not in a bad way, it has you listening to every second carefully, because it is so compelling to listen too.

Kela Parker has created a track that leaves you wanting to hear more and to see the ever growing talent of her vocal ranges, we can’t wait to see what she does next.

Dan Plants and Nate Cronk- Stay: A journey through the sound of Synthwave

‘Stay’’ was created by two great friends Dan Plants and Nate Cronk, it dives straight into the Synthwave style as it introduces a variety of different sound effects as well as some catchy vocals.

From start to finish it has this up-lifting beat that gives the track so much energy, there’s a mixture of hard-hitting drum beats, insane riffs on the guitar as well as the synth effects that intertwine themselves into the vocals and instrumentation.

It tells a story throughout about love and heartbreak, but even if it tends to have a more poignant meaning, it still manages to keep your spirits high as the melody is so contagious and it gives off this cheery feeling.

Dan and Nate have made something that’s creative, something that may not be for everyone, considering the overall sound is not as popular as it once was, but even then Stay shows just how good it can be. It has some incredible rhythms and a superb lyrical approach, if you’re one that hasn’t really delved into the world of Synthwave music then you must!

Ashley Singh – Can’t Look At Me: Dungarees with a Cumber-band!

All great song writers carry you with them, and keep you riveted to their story right through to the very last note. ’Can’t Look At Me’ succeeds in making sure you stay along for the ride.

Ashley Singh’s’ relaxed, flawless vocal tells a honest story of remorse and the need for redemption. It is beautiful in its simplicity and haunting lyrically. It’s uncomfortable because it is a relatable tale. We all have moments, mistakes, and mishaps that we would happily erase by magic if it were at all possible but, listening to Ashley’s melodious method of transport through his own personal experience,  we are plunged into the warm, healing baths of his catharsis. His journey quickly becomes ours and its hard to know where one begins and the other ends.

Like dungarees with a silk cumber-band, this relaxed guitar led track is complimented by some deceptively well orchestrated strings and some seriously classy production and mastering. Still waters really do run deep with this talented singer-songwriter but, with such an outstanding release in January, we can expect Ashley Singh to make some huge waves in 2020.

Listen to ‘Can’t Look At Me’ on Spotify. We think you’ll love it!

Ramsey Perkins – My Time’s Run Out: Accordantly Captivating Acoustic Indie

Up and coming singer-songwriter Ramsey Perkins dropped their latest video; a transfixing rendition of their single “My Time’s Run Out” on January 21st.

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, Ramsey Perkins was able to instantly captivate through the lo-fi recording of their single which is sure to enamour any fans of Johnny Marr’s virtuosic Jangly guitar style. Paired with the reflectively deep lyrics, Ramsey Perkins succeeded where many artists fail. He made connectable human emotion the cornerstone of his sound and utilised his nuanced instrumental and vocal ability to make the soundscape arrestive from the first verse to the last.

Bluebyrd – Not the Only Show in this Town: Chorally Atmospheric Folk Pop


There was little chance that we’d forget the mellifluous tones of up and coming Folk artist Bluebyrd after hearing their debut album “Uneven Ground” in 2018 and their politically-cathartic single “Song for the Duped” in 2019.

With their first single to be released in 2020 “Not the Only Show in this Town” there’s plenty of serene resonance to soak up.

It may or not surprise you to learn that as a music journalist, I brush up against some caustically salty egos. Not the Only Show in this Time is a pedestal-removing chorally atmospheric reminder that self-projected superiority is more than a little ridiculous.

With the ethereal organ layers weaved into the Alt Folk Pop mix, there was a slight touch of Momus in the track. But ultimately, Bluebyrd’s sound is very much their own. And that’s just one of the reasons why the UK-based artist is incredibly easy to warm to.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out ‘Not The Only Show In This Town’ which is due for release on all platforms on February 14th. In the meantime, you can head on over to SoundCloud to check out their earlier releases.
