Artist Review: Imani WJ Wright

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


It’s not often that I stumble upon an artist and decide to take him under the reviewer’s wing, but we’re gonna change the pace a bit here at the Artist Reach camp.

Sensuality, good vibes and a little Rock & Soul might be a few choice words for young and upcoming Artist/Producer Imani WJ Wright

Starting out in the business early, talented and serving as your own Producer is definitely the way to go. That’s why I have to tip my hat to Mr. Wright. His single, “Appreciation”, is a lovingly witty and soul-soothing track that is bound to draw in the ladies at first blush. For a debut single, I’d say he can accomplish just that. This song does one big thing though…it gets you pumped for the prospective future for the young Artist. I wanna hear what else this young man can do. Because he’s absolutely on the right track in every way; music and image alike.

If you have appreciation, no pun intended, for an up and comer ready to take sensuality, sexuality, and the heart and soul of music’s passion, Mr. Wright is right up your alley. I hear a man ready to take off and fly. He has his passport, plane ticket, and the jet ready, and this song walks me to the plane.

So again, I have to give major props to a young guy giving his heart and soul to true music that definitely won’t shy you away. “Appreciation” is a stunner for its alley of execution, and I’m dying to hear what move this guy makes next musically. I’m jet-ready, let’s get the plane to take off!

This single is definitely on the Wright track! Double-pun completely intended.

Now his other single, “Make Me”, shows a different side to Imani WJ Wright, but still utilizes the same elements within his content and overall execution. This song allows you to get to know the fellow artist a little bit more, and explore what he has to offer as an artist that does it the DIY way.

This song offers up more edge and production value. Each measure is well crafted and keeps you listening and adds more character depth to his music and image. This is definitely a great follow-up from the predecessing track.

With the great R&B vibe still in the forefront, this song definitely will capture your heart and put some soul into you. It entices you to research more into Imani WJ Wright as an artist and persona. 

These are some solid tracks for this young man, and we at Artist Reach would like you to check them out. It’s not often that we Review an artist on-the-spot or happen upon them, but this seemed like the right occasion.

Artist Review: Craig Raymo

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


It’s very rare that an artist reaches out for a review, and is armed with music that is insatiably captivating and original. With Craig Raymo‘s multi-genre mind blowing single “Be Myself”, we get just that with so many clever twists where it almost can’t be put to words. This is one for the books on the Artist Reach platform.

With this track, as Plucky Duck would say…expect the unexpected. Starting off with a hand-clapping and crowd participation inspired intro, we get the perfect introduction into the dynamic and charismatic vocal approach that Raymo showcases, all while maintaining one of the catchiest hooks to prepare you for what’s to come in the following measures.

Anticipating a possible generic Pop-influenced track, we instead get a stroke of genius and mind boggling acoustic infused pre-chorus that you didn’t see coming at all. This song will put you in awe by this point, and when the powerful chorus jumps in with Raymo‘s multi-layered harmonies with perfect precision, you’ll easily understand what makes this song the gem that it really is.

This song is the perfect combination of the best of 90’s style Songwriting and today’s Pop sensibility and production value. It’s just a track that needs to be heard to be believed. You’ll have this one not only on repeat, but passed among your friends as well. 

I go way back with Craig Raymo, so in a way I was expecting nothing less than something amazing. But this track exceeded my measures by a landslide. This is a must-hear on all counts. Raymo is also Director of Publishing for company powerhouse Moho Productions. Listen, research, and reach out to a brilliant artist and person altogether.

Artist Review: Roman

Review by: Justyn Brodsky, Dave Welsh, & Martin Abrams


NYC-based Country/Indie Acoustic artist, Roman, that also encompasses a 90’s influence with his dynamic and catchy acoustic-oriented centerpiece to his music, has been building himself quite the empire lately; among fans, presentation, and overall musical inspiration and evolution as a professional musician.

And with that said, his upcoming album, appropriately titled Empire, has collectively been an anticipated release among fans, and also some of Roman‘s best material to date. 

Tracks from this upcoming LP like “Thank You” and “Without You Here” demonstrate perfect elements of what to expect from Roman‘s upcoming release. He’s been hard at work in the studio with this album and has yet to show any disappointment with the samples he’s released. His sound is versatile, eclectic, and expresses a very hybrid, emotional, and captivating signature sound that is not only refreshing but also universal in a way where almost anyone can enjoy a musical-approach in the way Roman does.

His album Empire is definitely a collection of tracks that pays homage to not only an insatiable era of music with today’s sensibility, but to his fans as well. And to anyone new that discovers Roman, will be very glad they did.

Artist Review: Brianna Musco 

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


I’ve always had a special place in my heart for female musicians, especially those that can really master the art of the six-string. A lot of new artists come out of the gate however, by utilizing their talent in performing YouTube covers (even in live shows as well) to get their voice out there for the world to discover them before they break out into original music.

We have the perfect example of this with Indie-Acoustic artist Brianna Musco. From recording live-performance videos of herself playing her own versions of artist greats like Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, and many more, Brianna hits it out of the park with her high-quality recorded acoustic renditions of some of today’s radio favorites with her own breed of sound and texture. 

She’s charismatic, fun to watch, and upon discovery will have you captivated in her overall persona. She’s got a laid-back, free spirited approach and carries the torch with her soulfully soothing vocals that go perfectly with her acoustic approach. Add in some low-end keyboard parts, and Brianna Musco is a one-woman army with multi-talented and multifaceted qualities; rendering the listener curious with anticipation for what her original music will bring when she finally unleashes it.

This girl deserves your undivided attention in whole. There’s only a handful of Indie-Female multi-musicians that can bring the goods to the table like Brianna Musco. Discover her now so you can be one to say that you found her first.

Artist Review: Nikki Shae

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


There are some artists that have that niche; that power to pull you in with their undeniable talent, sensational songwriting, and a voice that sings to your soul. Country/Pop Starlet Nikki Shae has this ability, and her musical persona along with the top-notch production value that showcases her songs perfectly is what parallels her natural beauty and talent, ensuring you to love her from the very listen.

Her track “Favourite Hello (Hardest Goodbye)” is a very anthemic and versatile ballad-oriented song that immediately encompasses Shae‘s perfect vocal range for a song like this. It’s an emotional grasp that plays with your heartstrings, and with a powerful chorus to accompany her spot-on vocal harmonies and melody structures, you’ll be falling in love with this song the very first time you give it a listen. 

Her other track, “Let Me Love You” is more upbeat with more Rock and Pop sensibilities that shows a whole different side to Shae. Her vocal approach is just as dynamic and beautifully crafted, but still gives you that musical butterfly sensation in your stomach when you listen to her soothing voice in the forefront through every measure. This charismatic song once again showcases eclectic and high-quality production value that brings out the best of Shae‘s vocal structures, and clever lyricism that has a witty edge. Another flawless track that will leave you wanting more from this artist as she again fills your heart with soul-soothing melodies with her beautiful vocal range. 

All in all, this is not your average run-of-the-mill Country-coated outfit. There are insatiable elements of strong musicianship, above-average songwriting abilities, and an ambient signature sound that gives you an instant comfort for any and every listener that discovers Nikki Shae. I can definitely see this artist going very far with the solid material that she’s armed with. Even if you aren’t a Country music fan, Nikki Shae will be an exception, hands down. She is as good as they come, and you will be astonished from your very first listen.

Artist Review: Lynn – “Rise High” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


Eclectic, powerful, and an essence of maturity and range go hand in hand with 18-year old up & coming Starlet Lynn with her second highly acclaimed single, “Rise High”.

With an insatiable sweetness of acoustic textures and Grammy-worthy vocal melodies in the song’s verses, we experience an innovative and eclectic tone from Lynn‘s vocal structures that showcase both solid songwriting and undeniable passion in her approach. There is a very subtle, yet charismatic buildup that keeps your ears glued to this song, and the forefront of Lynn‘s undeniable vocal tone is one of the defining factors that carries the torch.
And like fireworks, Lynn brings us a flawless and anthemic chorus that creates an energy source that hits us hard. It does justice to the song’s title, and even puts the song’s entirety on a whole new level. It’s a Universal sound, but one that is written in a way that sets Lynn aside from the average female vocalist. If this chorus doesn’t amaze you, I don’t know what will.

With an uplifting music video to bring this song more to life, we get a great edge and uplifting personality from Lynn as an artist and person collectively. The song and video shares many positive parallels between the perfect balance of audio and imagery, and will likely entice you to research more into Lynn, as well as keep up with her in the shortcoming and beyond.
Overall, this is a teen artist that has some major things in her horizon, and “Rise High” is a powerful, and soul-filled uplifting track that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and the song on repeat.

Artist Review: Steve Andrews

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Hailing from the Wales landscapes of Cardiff and often compared to Neil Young, Indie Folk Rock Acoustic/Electric Artist Steve Andrews, is a fun-loving and colorful character with a sound to match.

This veteran musician has a very eclectic craft and tracks off his most recent effort demonstrate it clearly. His upbeat track “Living Book” and acoustic-infused catchy hit “Ever Yours” are dynamic, well produced, and share a common ground from Andrews‘ influences and original persona. 

His vocal range is perfect for the folk role, and in his homeland goes by the name of Bard of Ely, which pays homage to his roots. And you can definitely hear his roots implemented in his music, where he expressively showcases his moods, adventures, inspirations, and the great memories he has made living as an innovative, native English musician.

If you’re into an outstanding world class Folk sound with many great edges and key factors that makes an Artist truly inspiring, Steve Andrews is definitely the guy you’ll want to take a close listen to, and also perhaps research into as well. He has many stories to tell, and lives life fully through entertaining the public, attending every event and concert he can, and playing a very dynamic style of Indie/Folk that everyone can enjoy. Check into the Bard of Ely and experience something eclectic, electric, acoustic, and all around a joy to behold.
