The rise of a future legend: Fèroce drops excellent three-track EP ‘Emergence’

Fèroce is back with a supremely creative release and this time its a three-track EP that makes you appreciate his music diversity on ‘Emergence‘.

After the debut success of ‘Handy‘ earlier this year, this is an RnB fused Hip Hop entry that is almost cinematic and shows the quality of this performers strong voice and top lyrical ability.

Intentions‘ features Wxterboi and starts off proceedings that lays down a marker for the high standard of this release. The story of trying to show them your intentions but they keep on doubting you no matter what you say. The vocals are crisp and tight, the beat glows up the room and you feel the urge to turn this up all the way.

Bummy‘ features Ousha as this is probably the highlight of the EP due to its excellent lyricism and build up that soon sparks a fire within you and makes you think of living that comfortable life. No one wants to be struggling while feeding their family and this is a top track with a fiery Hip Hop flavor that sticks in your mind. Fast money is out there but the risks sometimes out way the reward as sooner or later, the blue lights shine when you least want them to and from there, everything changes.

No Banter‘ is the final track off the EP and features East London’s Just Isaiah. This feels like a track with more of an Afro-Beats vibe that certainly gets the foot stompin’ started. This is all about being taken seriously as when you are with the crew, you are out for business and the time for laughs can be saved for later.

”My music is versatile and takes inspiration from my own experiences and experiences of those around me. I speak on movements and ideologies that I’m passionate about.”- Fèroce

Emergence‘ from the wildly talented Fèroce is an excellent three-track EP that showcases the incredible variety that this young musician has deep inside his soul. He is trying out a few different styles to find which one he enjoys the most and this is an exciting period for him, as he build up his fan base and also knowledge of the wild music game.

If he can stay focused and not let unnecessary distractions lead him astray, we could be witnessing a special artist and future legend, who seems to have it all in his armor if he wants it enough.

Andrea Charls ‘Arrow’ – a beautiful, soulful, indescribable whirlwind of exquisite vocal delivery

Andrea Charls is already an internationally recognised singer-songwriter, working with artists as diverse as Bobby McFerrin, Annie Lennox, Javier Limon, Pepe de Lucia, and Mario Frangoulis, with work recognised by the Latin Grammy Awards, The International Songwriting Competition, and the Hollywood Music and Media Awards.

Her new single ‘Arrow’ is a whirlwind of deep, rumbling bass, sequenced synthesisers, and Charls’ stunning, delicate multiply-layered vocal parts. There are elements of Suzanne Vega’s work here, mixed in with a vaguely Latin feel and obvious hints of Charls’ Cypriot heritage (Andrea was born and raised in Cyprus before moving to Boston, Mass., to pursue her career). It’s a dazzling track, melancholic, uplifting, charming, and elegant all at once, choir-like in parts and upbeat in others, all held together by Charls’ exquisite vocal delivery. Lyrically thought-provoking and contemplative, beautifully performed, and intricately put together; ‘Arrow’ really does deserve to be heard. Often.

Listen to ‘Arrow’ on Spotify; follow Andrea Charls on Facebook.

Finding your way again: Indie-Pop singer Imelda Gabs drops the outstanding solo debut ‘Fallen Angel’

UK & Switzerland based singer-songwriter, pianist and producer Imelda Gabs is quite breathlessly brilliant on the incredible visuals for her debut single called ‘Fallen Angel‘. This is something rare and special right before our eyes.

Daughter of the world-renowned jazz pianist Doctor Gabs who sadly passed away when she was just 15, this young lady has made her own lane and he would be so proud of what she has created here.

Her music is so cinematic, each layer and move has been created with such pure precision. You can tell that she is in charge of her own destiny and is not going to let anyone ruin her vision with fads or flashy tactics. Each word is sung with an elegant class that is a refreshing cleanse of the current music around that is mostly dirty and diluted.

Scars on her back, seeing a newspaper with her name and picture inside, a movie-type start, this has it all. The haunting but beautiful start is an entry into something more than a song. this is her flying free, finally released from being in bands and in other’s shadows. She is doing what she feels is right and her piercing eyes looks right inside your soul. The gift to hold her tone is there, never trying too hard to impress anyone but herself. The scene of her with her wings on and the spark filled background is a moment that gives my whole body shivers of excitement.

With a jazz background and influenced in various genres such as pop, soul and classy classical, her music is clearly original and I love how she isn’t trying to copy anybody else’s style, only to be the best version of herself each day.

Imelda Gabs is born to be a solo artist and seems happy with this new adventure. ‘Fallen Angel‘ is a song that is edgy and real, her stunning voice and ability to get a top team to join her on the journey, is a sign of world class releases to follow with her debut EP set for 2021.

Sometimes you lose yourself and run away from that special soul that really loves you, You care for them but are scared you will hurt them so you run away but come back, hoping they will still be there. The ultimate love story to see if you are a match and the timing is always an issue. This is the incredible story and a spectacular song that will be timeless. This creation is that good.

Trying to block out the noise: Toronto based singer/rapper Brandeus drops new single ‘Sirens’

https://soundcloud.com/brandeus/sirens/s-iwLtWmoHq9M

Australian born Hip Hop artist, singer, emcee and producer Brandon Williams aka Brandeus, is back with a song all about the crazy sounds from his flat on ‘Sirens’.

Inspired by fellow RnB/Rap artists such as Saint Jhn, NAV, Drake and Russ, this is a quality act that is creating his own lane in the music world and driving straight through to the top. You can sense his extra motivation in his voice that the best acts have.

After feeling extra anxious from the constant sounds of sirens bellowing while he’s trying to work or sleep, he craves the love of that special soul to make his mind calm again. The rain is falling down and so many people are dying due to covid and crimes out there which is making this young artist think so deeply about the whole situation.

His voice and style are excellent and this musician has the gift of being able to sing and rap at the same time. The beat is marvelously woven together and made to perfectly suit him. You feel a thoughtful air cloud over you and also get into the lyrics, wondering what life is like in his world, staring outside and trying to stay safe from all the madness so close to you. Big city life can be so draining on the soul.

Sirens’ is a dope track and there is so much potential for Brandeus to reach his goals. If can stand out from the crowd and get some support slots for well-known artists once the world calms down again, the crowds will go wild for his style. Blocking out that noise is tough but finding that inner peace and laser focus is the only way to go in 2020.

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.

South Californian singer-songwriter Autumn Knight sings of a new perspective on the excellent single ‘Start Again’

South Californian singer-songwriter Autumn Knight sings of a new perspective on the excellent single ‘Start Again‘ and this is such a glorious song. With an effortless style, the vocals here transcends this horrible year and we are in for a treat here with this extra bit of quality.

Taken off the full album called ‘Here and Now‘, this is such a gorgeously made single that is performed so effortlessly and the vocals are so crystal clear. Raised by a music-loving family, making music was always on the cards and you can feel this natural talent inside your bones and also the many hours spent to perfect each second.

You are strong but know you need to start again and be in control of your own journey. Heartbreak is hard but you know that it is needed to heal and that is what you are going to do.

Autumn Knight is a young artist but performs with such maturity on ‘Start Again‘. You can feel the pain in her voice and she puts on a real show here with a stunning song that patches up that sad heart.

Sometimes in life you hear a song and just know that this is someone that just has it. A fine single with a real story is always appreciated and this is a highlight for our soul to enjoy.

Here is the Spotify link to hear this stunning track.
