    Album Review: Sim Ross – “Mother’s Day Blues” LP

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    It’s rare nowadays that you run into one of those albums where you don’t have to skip over one track. This is exactly the case with the multifaceted and passion-driven “Mother’s Day Blues” album from Sim Ross.

    Hailing from the elite Austin music scene in Texas, Sim Ross blends a dynamic signature sound that is comprised of roots-rock and Americana with edgier components and presented with limitless musicianship factors and production value. This is one of those clear and concise albums that you know you’ll love from the very first track.

    One of Sim‘s notable singles, “Sweetness”, is a perfect example of how effective the likability factors from this album really is, and how it resonates with a great play on creating a multi-genre approach that brings out originality and familiarity. Taking some of the best components from his musical influences that range from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and The Black Crowes, Sim Ross‘s edgy vocal tones, innovative guitar progressions, and infectiously catchy hooks really brings every component to the forefront of showcasing Sim effectively, and properly. This is one of those songs that is more of an anthem – it doesn’t leave a stone unturned. The songwriting structure and overall presentation of this track delivers up one of the many gems that makes this album shine the way it does.

    Taking a look at another angle of Ross, “Avalanche” brings us to a dark and witty aura that showcases the same signature that has been etched into the musical chemistry, but grasps a whole other part of you. With another powerful chorus and charismatic vocal delivery carrying the torch with authentic guitar work and all the right textures, we delve into another captivating track that brings versatility to this album that is indicative of precision and performance value.

    This 14-song catalogue definitely gives a nod to an era when track sequence was an art form. It creates a narrative for the listener, and a perspective for the artist that you can identify with. “Mother’s Day Blues” is one of those albums you’ll keep coming back to time and time again, finding something new each time you play it from beginning to end. With an album this in-depth, creative, and beyond what you’ll anticipate, it definitely makes you eager to see and hear what Sim Ross puts out next. This is the type of artist you truly invest yourself into.

    Artist Review: The Keymakers – “Good For You” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky


    R&B the way it should be, and a groove that was meant to make you move.

    Dynamic duo, The Keymakers, are some very talented voices contributing to the R&B and Hip Hop flow that makes artists like these guys stand out in versatile ways with a signature sound that could easily appease both old school R&B fans, and new sensibilities. A sound that’s integrated in natural production value between the duo with their current buzzing single, “Good For You”. A track of sensuality and a great showcase of both voices honing their craft in order to do their part as a duo with a duality approach. It’s a brilliant mix for any avid listener of the R&B good nature along with the rhyme and flow that beautifully drives this song forward.

    There’s many twists and turns in different ways with many different dynamics that The Keymakers succumb to. You can hear many artist influences, but there’s a vibe and natural persona that absolutely puts likability factors in the forefront with the duo. It only takes one listen to really hear the witty edge and nostalgic factors that these two bring to the table, and really bring their own vocal structures and melodic executions right where they can grasp at your heart, ears, and mind. “Good For You” is definitely the song for you. A song with drive, diversity, both indie and mainstream sensibilities, and with the right marketing and getting this song out to the correct people (hint: That’s where WE come in), “Good For You” just might bring some good for The Keymakers future prospects. We can hear the potential loud and clear.

    Artist Review: The Saturators

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky


    Hailing from NYC, we have more proof that some of the most talented, unique, dynamic, and versatile music comes from this city. And with Brooklyn/Harlem group The Saturators, we get the perfect example of just that kind of proof completely.

    The Saturators are a Brooklyn/Harlem-based dance band that melds an astounding amount of genres to produce their own authentic and wholly unique sound. Dubbed “wet music,” the Saturators pull on Harlem’s vibrant hip-hop scene and Brooklyn’s underground basement parties and mixes it with tastes of Dancehall, Sosa, Cumbia, and 70’s funk to create their danceable and upbeat tunes that are guaranteed to get bodies moving on the floor.
    And this is no lie. With their song “Not For You” (live -in-studio version), the song is not only dynamic and swingin’, but also gives you a video visual of the band’s live-show persona. They’re fun, witty, and are extremely on-point with precision and rehearsal. 

    The group’s Bassist & Musical Director, Aiman Radzi, really puts the pieces together with this song, and the rhythm section especially with his uptempo and smooth bass lines that parallel’s perfectly with the drums & percussion, as the rest of the band ties in perfectly with each additive to the chemistry. As a director, Radzi really shines with the music’s direction, performance, and overall defining factors that make The Saturators the explosively dynamic sound that they are.

    Each set of measures offers up interesting and very diversely well-written twists and turns, all while solidifying a sound that is recognizable, admirable, and with a unique signature. No matter what elements are placed in their song, you can still tell that it’s coming from the same band. Ranging from funk, afrobeat, jazz, swing, and just about anything that can force you to the dance floor. The likability factor for this band is ridiculously high, and I dare you to try and find a flaw with this group’s performance and Songwriting techniques. Cause you won’t find one. These guys are a complete treat for the ears, soul, and the sway of the hips.

    The lyrical narratives and fun-loving harmonies will also definitely draw you in to this song. It’s a strong, charismatic anthem for the soul, and a bit of rock and roll in their energized approach. The song is compelling, crafty, and extremely addictive.

    The band has a new album in the works, appropriately dubbed Wet Music, which is due out this month. We at Artist Reach highly recommend you check out the song, and pick up their record when it releases. You won’t go wrong at all.

    Artist Review #2: Billy Roberts & The Rough Riders – “No One Knows Me” single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky


    We welcome back Billy Roberts & The Rough Riders for round 2 at the Artist Reach camp, fresh with his new single “No One Knows Me”, an uptempo song with Western-Style Blues and a Country-Rock twist that has solid production and high likability factors.

    We once again have great vocal melodies in the forefront to give the twangy guitars all the compliments they need for a perfect blend. The drum tempo is truckin’, the smooth sound is one for all ears, and Roberts‘ band mates definitely bring out the best in his vocal delivery, and him as an artist altogether.

    What I love about this record is the traditional sound the band utilizes with today’s music sensibilities. While we may hear key influences from some of the artists we’ve grown to know and love over many decades, Roberts‘ group tend to bring their own cast of characters and song arrangements to the table that really touch on a unique artistic merit. It’s a sound almost any Rock, Blues, or Country fan can appreciate and identify with.

    “No One Knows Me” is one of several tracks off of Roberts‘ full-length LP, Greenbah. We highly suggest you check out that record in its entirety and really get the full grasp on what Billy Roberts & The Rough Riders have to offer. It’s a brilliant record from an insatiably talented group of professional musicians.

    Artist Review: Dave Schlueter

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


    Eclectic with a very polished sound, Fearfield Studios Recording Artist, Dave Schlueter, brings a very anthemic sound to the table with his very influential, catchy writing style with great vocal melodies to match.

    With great synchronicities between a natural and traditional writing style that never fails to impress, inspire, and invite you into a sound that has the ability to universally appease and demonstrate professional standards of songwriting, Schlueter‘s in-depth approach in his track “Be Free” is a perfect exercise in excellent musicianship and chemistry among his vision in music and his band mates that contribute to his finishing touches that solidify a versatile, yet simple sound that will never disappoint you. 

    It’s a universally grasping song with great acoustic and electric guitar textures that compliment this overall sound with Schlueter‘s vocal range carrying the torch in the forefront to tie it all together into an innovative, humble persona as a collective effort. And the simplicity is perhaps one of the great things that this Artist isn’t afraid to succumb to; which demonstrates to me that he’s focused more on eras of music where catchy, well written songs was at the top of the priority list, which is what makes Schlueter‘s sound as effective as it is.

    This is an artist that is manifesting into something very noticeable with a household sound that any Indie/Rock listener can enjoy. And we can’t wait to hear more what he has in store in the shortcoming. In the meantime, discover Dave Schlueter and sit back, unwind, and take a listen to an artist that hasn’t forgotten how effective simple, catchy, and innovative songwriting really is.

    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.
