Artist Review: No-EL Dacosta – “The Soul Man From The Endz” LP

FrReview by: Justyn W. Brodsky & Bethany A. Stephenson

A truly modern triumph, and a realm of R&B the way it was meant to be is what No-EL Dacosta‘s The Soul Man From The Endz stands up to be, and represents as a whole. An album of tunes that are soulful, versatile, multifaceted, and a realistic caressing of the heart of real R&B music.

But Dacosta‘s album is a lot more than that. This collection of uplifting anthems have additives of Blues, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Jams, Hip Hop and everything in between. From swinging mid-ranged vocal tracks to clear and concise production value, these songs share all kinds of moods. There are blissful feature artists that bring in soothing vocal textures, beautifully crafted guitar and piano compositions. Best of all, each song breathes its own life into each song. You never hear the same thing twice and every track has a new set of features that conjures these songs more into anthems, rather than just songs on an album.

No-EL‘s album is a masterpiece of R&B in its own right, and rightly so. His vocal approach is perfect for the genre and has really put a modern edge to every song on this album. You’ll absolutely love it, and puts R&B into a new modern world that gives it a whole new sound for generations to come.

Artist Review: Cab – “Chosen” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Rappers can be around every corner of your hood, but there is only one Cab.

Combining versatility, loud bangers and subtle beats, Cab‘s album Chosen has a plethora of likability factors and multifaceted approaches to his songs; and they don’t disappoint.

Chosen starts off strong with beats that are of a whole different realm that is ahead of its time. His music resonates with a style that touches on originality and familiarity, giving his audience a taste of something fresh, yet still identifiable, but not too recognizable. He’s an artist in his own right and really projects a powerfully crafted vocal approach in the first few tracks.

He does, however, simmer down with tracks like “Thinking About You”, a song where his emotions come into play and really shows different angles to Cab‘s caliber, and it’s a refreshing and tasteful side to his album.

Chosen is an album you really need to pick up, or perhaps add to your Spotify list. It’s an album that is strong, subtle, projected, and diligently crafted from the heart.

Press Release: Carolee Rainey Releases Her New Single “Sacrifice”

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky

We at Artist Reach have a great suggestion. Stop doing what you’re doing and go listen to Carolee Rainey’s new single, ‘Sacrifice.’ 

This may sound strange, but the first time we heard  ‘Sacrifice’, we felt like she may have been talking right to us. But Wait. Hold that thought. On the second listen, we’re certain she may be talking not only to us but through us. She has literally brought me back to a time in our lives before real responsibility kicked in…when life was carefree and wild.  Oh yeah. Its funny. A dear friend of ours who has met Rainey said she got the idea to write ‘Sacrifice’ after reading an article about a manager that worked closely with Stevie Nicks in her early career and mentions in the interview how much he enjoyed working with Stevie, but it had been a long time since they had been in touch and how wonderful it would be to just randomly run into her again somewhere. 

This was the very article that inspired Rainey’s ‘Sacrifice.’ This is Rainey’s third single out on her new label ‘Sapphire.’  The other two singles, ‘Deeper Than The Ocean’ and ‘You Matter’ invoked the beginning sparks of a brilliant new songwriter artist on the horizon.  We’re talking superstars like Tracy Chapman, Tori Amos, Lana del Rey, and Ed Sheeran. 

Add Carolee Rainey to the list. ‘Sapphire’ is proud to have Carolee on the label and is thrilled to promote a platform in which this unusual and soulful artist can now be heard by the world. Get ready.

Artist Review: (dIG) dEM iSBY gIRLS – “School Days”

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Glistening vocals, ambient beat structures, and a futuristic hypnotic vibe that combines the best of yesterday’s and today’s R&B is what makes dEM iSBY gIRLS (aka dIG) a gem within their own right with their freshest single “School Days”.

The voices are subtle, magnetic, and brings you to a realm of a laid-back feel that really encompasses a sound that is very visceral, ethereal, and multifaceted. Their versatile approach in “School Days” is not your every day track; it resonates with a style that touches on originality and familiarity, giving their audience a taste of something new yet still identifiable. The vocal personas also touch on different factors, landscapes, and really give each vocal component a life of its own, which is what makes dIG a group that lives up to their name. You will dig them, and really find your listener’s niche with their hypnotic style of singing.

Another part of this song is the likability factors – the sing doesn’t carry on too long, has great runtime in its duration, and is a track you can come back to time and time again. It has that staying power – the power to really stay with you even after the song is over. Regardless, you will find unconditional love for this song; and keep you in anticipation of what dIG comes out with next. They won’t disappoint.

Artist Review: Spursy – “Neon” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Some of today’s artists really know how to put a true edge to the reminiscence of yesterday’s 80s iconic sound without succumbing to plagiarism techniques or obvious direct similarities to the music of any era, but executed more in a way where the artist’s homage to the era is more reinvented or reimagined in their own way and brought out in a mainstream realm of quality. And this is exactly the type of feat Spursy brings to the table with his signature sound from his single “Neon”.

This track definitely has a glow from the very beginning of the track, and never wavers from the concept’s funky riffs, tight knit rhythm section and Duran Duran style vocals – however all executed in a way that is compellingly original. The vocal range and lyrical outbursts of Spursy is completely versatile, multifaceted, and never wavers from its authenticity, balance and composure.

Each verse is doused with that 70s/80s synthy sound we’ve all come to know, love, and miss dearly. So it’s a refreshing and tasteful feel throughout the vocal combination. And once all of this takes place, the song’s structure melts us with an insatiably earth halting chorus that truly ties it all together to make “Neon” light up the room, your earphones, and everything in between that puts this song in the forefront of your listening experience. You truly can not go wrong with this song.

From the old school songwriting sensibilities to today’s mainstream production quality – it just doesn’t get any better than this.
