Abby Zotz releases new Album 

Abby Zotz releases new Album

PRIMARY URL: abbyzmusic.com/

Critics from one end of North America to the other can’t seem to stop talking about Local Honey, the ambitious new album from Canadian singer/songwriter Abby Zotz, and just one listen to any of its stunning eleven tracks will clue you in as to why. Outfitted with a stylish production that features the caliber of high definition audio you would expect to find on a much more mainstream affair, Local Honey showcases an artist who has so much within herself to share with the world and has found the perfect medium in which to convey it. Her music speaks to the humbleness of mankind, but it also tells us a lot about the identity of Zotz as both a composer and as a human being.

“Big Hope,” one of the star singles from Local Honey, is by far one of the most exquisitely warm power ballads I’ve reviewed this year. Accompanied by a simple music video that features nothing more than Zotz playing an acoustic guitar and singing the affectionate lyrics of the song, “Big Hope” is a prime example of stripped down pop that utilizes melody over volume to capture our attention. Don’t let its surface minimalism deceive you though – beneath the delicate whisper of Zotz’ vocals and the accompanying instrumentation is a calculated arrangement that dexterously fuses influences from country, jazz and a touch of pop.

Although not one of the album’s singles, the song “Pirouette” is another essential excerpt from Local Honey that should be noted as one of the more evocative and poised compositions in Zotz’ repertoire. Focusing the spotlight squarely on her light, almost translucent singing while a storm of major key wonderment churns in the background, “Pirouette” has a timeless quality to it that is almost reminiscent of 1930’s vocal music. Zotz’ palate has so much depth to it, and this song is an excellent testament to her talents.

It would be criminal is any review of Local Honey failed to mention “Hush Baby Waltz,” which to me is tangible evidence that Abby Zotz isn’t just among the best singer/songwriters in the game right now; she towers over them. She doesn’t overcomplicate any of her music, but it’s moments like this one where there’s nothing but a guitar in her hands a voice to join it where we see just how melodically skilled she really is. She reaches into our hearts with Local Honey (and in this song especially), and the imprint she leaves behind isn’t one I’ll soon forget.

There’s a lot of reasons to be excited about pop music in general right now, but I don’t think anyone is garnering more attention and acclaim than Abby Zotz is. Rarely do I find myself agreeing with the majority of anyone on almost anything, but in this case the product is so divinely superior to everything else it’s up against that trying to deny its greatness would be futile. It’s still fairly early in her career to be certain, but if she keeps turning out records of this quality she’s going to find herself a part of the larger conversation in pop culture for some time to come.

Solitude is Oneself: piano music by Juan Maria Solare

Solitude is Oneself: piano music by Juan Maria Solare

Solitude is Oneself is tranquil, relaxing, “chill”, minimalist, expressive, peaceful music for solo piano, composed and performed by Juan María Solare. This music can be “used” for meditation, study, learning, sleeping, relax or praying. Keywords: New simplicity, Neoclassical, Post-Romantic, Instrumental.

The album Solitude is Oneself presents three music pieces, each in two versions: for electric piano (Rhodes) and for acoustic piano (Steinway). Therefore the six tracks…

Don’t see any negative aspects in Solitude. In Spanish there is only one word for Solitude and Loneliness (namely “Soledad”). Loneliness is a state of isolation, without dialog, feeling abandoned and without external points of reference. But I conceive Solitude as a highely creative state, in which one is faced to what one actually wants to achieve, with one’s thoughts, with one’s self.

1) Never Underestimate the Difficulties of Simple Things. Lots of times I have seen this in several persons – and in myself: when something is simple, easy and uncomplicated, we tend to underestimate it too much and its hidden difficulties end up tackling us. We leave to the last moment a text that seems easy to learn, and we do not assimilate it as we could. Or a chess game that is (really) won, but we feel over-confident, we play with superficiality, we make slight mistakes one after the other and lose control of the situation.

2) Too Much But Still Not Enough. The title aludes to current life in those human groups or societies that put an extremely strong stress in performance/efficiency at all costs, at any price. If you don’t get first prizes always, non-stop, you are a nobody. If you get a second place in a maraton where a thousand participated, your only merit is being the best of the losers. If you are the subchampion / runner-up of anything, nobody will remember you in a few years. This obsession for all or nothing leads to high levels of anxiety. All that you do is too much for your (mental, affective or physical) health, but anyway not enough for the system.

3) Waiting for Perfection is Waiting Forever: There are several forms of perfectionism, and some are harmful, noxious. We expect from others, or from ourselves, a perfection that belongs to an angelic world, not that of human beings. We hope that our partner does not have shortcomings or defects (Prince Charming Syndrome), we expect our teachers and parents to answer all our questions, we expect that our children have a perfect discipline, we hope to do an immaculate, faultless, unobjectionable job, always. Some human beings can do it (they can be called geniuses). For many others, such expectation can be a burden that slows us down, that undermines our energy, our motivation, our confidence in our strengths. The excess of perfectionism can paralyze. (Of course, the absence of any wish to improve is equally harmful.)

The ArtWork (Cover Art) of Solitude is Oneself shows a human face (concretely the composer’s) faced simmetrically to its silhouette, in black. This illustration alludes to the title. It is oneself (the person) facing his own solitude, his internal misterious being. A real human facing his own shadow. It is not a negative shadow: is the shadow of which Shamanism speaks, the own shadow from where one draws strength.

This album was released on Friday 17 August 2018 on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Qobuz, Tidal, Amazon mp3 and nearly all streaming platforms you can imagine.

Fitzsimon And Brogan Break Boundaries On “Big Blue World”

Fitzsimon And Brogan Break Boundaries On “Big Blue World”

Track list:

1. Big Blue World – 2:42.

2. The Cutest and the Cruelest – 3:37.

3. Blue Velvet – 4:02.

4. The Downing Pool – 3:15.

5. Girl in a Gilded Cage – 2:36.

6. One Minute Every Hour – 4:35.

7. Venus in Reverse – 4:50.

8. Someone I Know – 2:29.

9. The Wounds are Healing – 3:59.

10. God Given Right – 3:03.

The duo of Londoners Neil Fitzsimon and Bee Brogan have been developing a pretty respectable career in recent years after their exodus from Pretty Blue Gun and after going through several labels, which makes the very positive receptions of their work much more fascinating. Add to that equation guest musicians that played for the likes of the Moody Blues or Eric Clapton and you have Fitzsimon and Brogan, now presenting a very great compilation of Pop Rock tracks in their brand new album, Big Blue World.

What makes this collaboration so appealing is the fact that they cannot be pigeon-hold like the vast majority of Pop Rock bands that are always proliferating in the business and that is something that can make a huge difference. Naturally, they come from the English music scene, where versatility and experimentation is always there almost by default, which is quite helpful for that. They are not only focused in making great songs, but they also have that curiosity to stretch artistically that makes musicians great.

So, what do have here in Big Blue World? Just by looking at the cover we can tell that we are not going to find a typical album: the image of Earth broken in two, almost giving “birth” to a new one, is as powerful as modern album covers can go and they show a level consciousness that is quite different to the usual Pop bands in the business. Album covers can’t make an album good or bad, but their goal is to amaze or at least intrigue the potential listener and this one does just that.

The great thing about the music on this album is the fact that each track is its own musical entity; you can find a wide variety of influences here and that makes for a much more compelling and intriguing listen. For example, God Given Right, the last song on the album, evokes some early 80s influences like The Clash and then you hear something like Blue Velvet, that has a few Folk influences and you can’t help but to be amazed at the fact that such opposites influences are coexistent in the same body of work.

One point I would like to signal is the fact that modern Rock musicians tend to tone down their ferocity and not have that kind of raw appeal that the great bands had back in the day; while I cannot dare to declare that Fitzsimon and Brogan have the same venom than, say, the Sex Pistols, I can safely say that they have a bit more of roughness going on than the average modern band and that is something worth celebrating–the modern Rock scene needs a bit more of that.

I will admit that one part that truly got me about this album was the fact that it has thick layers of guitar that just sound incredible with headphones; the production is top notch and that is another point to take into consideration when analyzing this album because it gives a little bit of balance to what is such a varied musical effort.

At the end of the day, Fitzsimon and Brogan’s Big Blue World is a pretty talented, varied and fascinating album that is worth having in your collection. If you are the kind of listener that likes Pop Rock, but also wants something a bit more musical, then this is the best choice for you.

Hughie Mac releases Great Songs, Pt. 3

URL: www.hughiemac.com/

Singer Hughie Mac has been quietly building a mammoth reputation as one of the last true blue lounge singers in America over the last few years, and his new record, titled Hughie Mac Sings Some Great Songs, Pt. 3, is by far his most exquisite and accessible offering to date. Styled for fans both young and old, Great Songs, Pt. 3 is one of the most affectionately simple and unfiltered glimpses into a subgenre of pop that has been grossly overlooked in recent years. Vocal standards have never sounded so concise and cutting as they do in the clouded musical climate of 2018, and Hughie Mac is just the man to bring them back to the surface.

It’s not easy to make some of the songs included on Hughie Mac Sings Some Great Songs, Pt. 3 sound fresh and non-recycled, but Mac’s individually tempered vocal style splashes a colorful texture onto these tracks that didn’t exist beforehand. He nimbly dispatches tunes like “Hello Mary Lou” and “I Have Dreamed” as if they were his own written word, and there’s never any need to question his ability to tackle virtually any composition and come out victoriously. His abilities are incalculable, but his self-control as an artist is really something to marvel at.

There’s a magnetism in Hughie Mac’s voice that is so easy to get completely lost in. I get the idea that he could sing almost anything, be it a Dean Martin classic or a few pages out of my mom’s recipe book, and make it into a gold standard without having to give much effort. Regardless of how hard he has to try, it’s clear in Great Songs, Pt. 3 that Mac never gives less than 110% of himself when he enters the studio, and we never get the impression that he’s trying to fill up space or woefully connect narratives in this LP.

I think that Hughie Mac would also sound awesome in collaboration with a live jazz band or even something a little more classical by design; he has so much versatility and knowledge of musicality that his options are practically limitless when considering what he might record next. He’s got the dexterity to do more complicated songs, but he also has the relaxed charisma that it takes to really make a slow song or a stripped down ballad feel larger than life. Finding songs for Mac to play isn’t the problem; the real challenge lies in finding ones that are up to the pedigree of his facilities.

The future looks overwhelmingly bright and positive for Hughie Mac and his career in the wake of his new album’s surprising (to some) success, and my gut tells me that he’s only just begun to show us what he can do when he’s got all the necessary recording tools at his disposal. Mac isn’t looking for his musical identity, but he also isn’t afraid to try new things and see what sort of opulence he can render as a result. If his next record contains the same level of showmanship that this one does, his status as a rising icon in this era of music will be solidified and impossible for even the most discriminating of critics to deny.

Mikey See drops new Single

YOU TUBE:
youtu.be/K58bNNsU2VM

From a critical standpoint, American indie pop has never been more enthralling than it is right now, and eclectically stylized artists like Mikey See are the precise reason why. Like many of the other gems of 2018, See is creating his brand of rhythm from scratch, honing talents that have long been buried within his psyche and developing them using techniques that go against the grain of what traditional pop musicians have employed in the past. In “Love My Body,” the explosive single from his highly praised debut EP, See invokes all of the raw sexual energy of funk and exotic jazz minus all of the pomp and frills of radio pop, and in a complete twist of irony ends up creating something that is more appealing to mainstream ears than anything the establishment has rendered in the last half decade.

When I listened to “Love My Body” for the very first time, I knew that I was listening to a surefire hit for both See and the highly competitive southern California scene that he’s conquering at the moment. From the very start of the song, there’s a brutally catchy backbeat that grabs our focus and leads us around like a young pup on a leash. Mikey See gradually pours the rhythm through the speakers, and before we have any time to assess what’s taking place, we’re completely engulfed in the white hot heat that drives the chorus. I can’t say for certain, but I feel like anyone, even the most dedicated of wallflowers, would have a hard time resisting the urge to bust a move to this single.

INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/iammikeysee/

Mikey See comes off so composed in this song that I could have been easily convinced that he was working on his second or third album rather than pushing a debut release. He doesn’t sound like the typical first-timer in the studio; there isn’t any nervousness, unneeded bells and whistles or the feeling that he’s holding back from unleashing his full potential. It’s just Mikey See, a microphone, a melody and us, and that combination is the perfect formula for creating something that is both magically innovative and divinely ancient at the same time. He’s onto something good, and anyone with a pair of ears could tell you that he’s going to make a fortune with it.

If you haven’t heard his self-titled debut or for that matter aren’t familiar with Mikey See and everything that he’s doing both in and out of music right now, “Love My Body” is the perfect jumping off point to get familiar with his persona as an artist and as an individual. There are plenty of reasons that I could list as to why I think we’re witnessing the birth of a real star in See, but I’ve always found it annoying when critics like myself try to play lawyer for an artist that we believe to be relevant to the future of music. Instead I’ll just tell you to give “Love My Body” a spin at the soonest possible occasion. Trust me, it will be well worth your time.

Emily Perry

Emily Perry

At just 19, this incredibly talented artist/composer/dancer powerhouse, has exploded onto the music scene. Set to be the next household name – not only here in the US but in her home country of Australia and even the UK where her music is creating a storm of interest.

In late 2016, Emily released her debut single, SUGARCOATED, a collaboration with talented Australian producer Alius. Sugarcoated, with a blaze of bold, vibrant sounds and exotic pop/electro blends reflected the confidence of an artist truly on the rise. Supported with a remix package, the song was played in clubs worldwide and received airplay in the US reaching #40 on the Mediabase Activator Chart.

Emily’s second single, BOOM, produced by 2011 Grammy Winners, the Jackie Boyz was released in late August 2017. With Emily’s unique tone, a hook that hangs around long after listening and a remix package led by 2016 Grammy Winner Dave Aude, Boom peaked at #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart and established a worldwide fan base for its young artist.

Her third single, WALK IN SILENCE, continued the buzz in industry and media after being debuted at the famous BB King’s in New York at the prestigious Pre-Grammy Soiree. Armed with an outstanding remix package, Walk In Silence headed straight to the Billboard Dance Chart peaking at #13.

Emily’s next single, SUMMER ON LOCK, supported with an international remix package, was released mid-2018 and peaked at #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart. The song “jumped the pond” and rose to #3 on the UK Commercial Pop Chart proving its international appeal. With a hook you simply can’t forget, a cool beat and dance moves to match, it was a red-hot summer hit and was the lead song for her debut tour, The Summer On Lock Tour which saw Emily performing across North America for the summer.

Emily has been invited to join the High School Nation Fall Festival Tour which will see her perform to more than 40,000 teenagers across North America over 5 weeks in October/November.

On a personal note, Emily has been singing and dancing from the time she could talk and walk, performing in her first concert at just four years old and she hasn’t stopped since. While her spare time was filled with dance, vocal and drama classes along with competitions and performances, it was acting which first presented itself professionally and Emily made a name for herself starring in various film and television projects. Emily spent her teenage years attending a Performing Arts High School in Australia, honing her triple threat skills in Los Angeles and completing a full-time professional dance course.

Emily now shares her time between the family home in Sydney and her new home in Los Angeles.
