Artist Review: Trusoul Davis

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Bringing back the smooth R&B sound we’ve all come to know over the 90’s era, and a touch of today’s Neo Soul sensibility that beautifully compliments the style and song delivery, Cleveland rising artist Trusoul Davis has brought a very sensual and passionate sound to the table with his infectious vocal melodies, and naturally gifted voice that perfectly showcases the music he has been creating over the years.

Trusoul probably could name off an endless list of influences, but when I take a listen to him, I hear a very great take on a genre that really knows how to capture the soul. His song “What About Me” off of his most recent album really demonstrates the heart behind the talent and really puts different musical focuses throughout the song’s structure. The intro is very curious, and even puts some theatrical foreshadowing into the song’s content as his very impressive one-track verse showcases Trusoul‘s sensual, real, and attractive vocal approach that keeps the listener interested, and perhaps in an anticipated state by wondering what the Chorus is going to bring to the approach.

The Chorus does not disappoint, at all. Just like the 90’s influence that was spoken of with some fantastically executed vocal overdubs and room for harmonies, it just comes together as one powerful Chorus that brings every true melody most effective in this song to the forefront, while keeping everything interesting in the backdrop, and side panels of the mix. Trusoul definitely knows how to melt your heart with beautiful vocal melodies, especially in his chance to bring forth a flawlessly performed, and produced Chorus like the one here in “What About Me”.

It’s hard to find R&B nowadays that isn’t smeared with several Feature Artists (Rappers, Singers, etc.). It’s refreshing to hear one brilliant artist put his self-taught work and solo-vocals strictly into the music’s entirety. And this comes as no surprise coming from an Artist that has an insatiable love for the 90s (as most of us do). Trusoul Davis has this song and the rest of his Album for sale, and is also able to be heard on ReverbNation as well as a nation-wide range of Radio Stations, Podcasts, Music Blogs, Music Retailers, and more. I truly recommend this Artist in every way. Chances are if you listen to this song, you’ll want to hear them all. Prepare to become instant-fan status after lending your eardrums to Trusoul Davis.

Artist Review: Natalie Jean

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


After scoping out the aura, vibe and sound that talented Bombshell Starlet Natalie Jean has put into the musical presence and image around her, it comes as no surprise that she is well on her way to some major things!

She is quite the trifecta; brains, beauty, talent…you name it. She’s been nominated for a slew of Awards, and has won many. And right now her most recent remix, “Red Room”, has really given her career a major boost and has been recognized on many other platforms like Jamsphere and ReverbNation — in which she also signed to donate 1/2 of her album sales to a charity that ReverbNation is doing.

“Red Room” to me is an explosion of high-end EDM and Pop sensibilities with a heavy presence. And with Natalie Jean‘s perfect range for this song with a very expressive and well-toned voice to compliment the song in whole, we have a masterpiece with dead-on production value that puts all the important musical key factors together; making the song catchy, exotic, free spirited, and very uplifting. This is one for the books if you’re an avid EDM or Pop enthusiast. You won’t be disappointed in the least.

This is the type of artist to really keep your eyes on. Or perhaps reach out to before it’s too late. Because like said, as a professional musician myself, my professional opinion is that she will be going to bigger places on the horizons. Mark my words, folks. Artist Reach approval 100%.

Artist Review: Carsen Gray feat. DJ SHUB – Wanna See You (Official Music Video)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


Eye candy, ear candy, and instant-classic status are some definitive ways of summing up Carsen Gray‘s Music Video for her song “Wanna See You” (Featuring DJ SHUB).

This is a video for every music hungry person out there (especially if you’re a male) that are always searching for the next up & coming Artist that’s right on the verge of something very, very big in their shortcomings. This song is catchy, on point, has amazing choreography, black light visuals (including neon green stilettos!), and most of all, an amazing presentation of very talented post production in both the song and video.

And that’s one of the best parts of this song. The production value parallels perfectly with the audio and imagery. And it never outdoes itself in any way. This is the first song and video I’ve seen/heard in a long time where I wanted this song to last much longer than it did. And I mean that in the best way possible. Because it immediately entices you to check out Gray‘s other videos, songs, and back catalogue that she’s put together beautifully in a very short time; which shows me that if she can garner a presence and fan base this quickly, imagine what she can accomplish with a longer period of time.

With many Artists out there creating their spin on the Pop/EDM sensibility right now, I must say that Carsen Gray takes the cake by a landslide. Because most artists that succumb to this genre nowadays normally fall short very quickly. Meanwhile, Gray hits it out of the park, and it’s something I haven’t heard on this level quite yet. So do we recommend her? No. We DEMAND her! She deserves more than a recommendation. By the power invested in me as a music blogger, music service entrepreneur and multi-musician, we demand you to give “Wanna See You”  a watch & listen right now. Just trust us on this one!

Artist Review: Alonzo

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Danielle Ferguson


A presentation of laid-back, imaginative, and a more subtle & ambient approach to Hip Hop allowing a song to have more foreground to showcase the true nature of an Artist’s actual talent like it is meant to be.

This description is perfectly fitting to Recording Artist, Alonzo, and his single “TRIPPYNation”. A Hip Hop song that eases you in, rather than sounding alarms and setting off sirens that the genre obnoxiously tends to hit you over the head with. 

This is not the case for Alonzo at all, and throughout most of the Hip Hop we’ve been reviewing over these past months, it seems to be heading in a similar if not very close to the same approach among the underground Hip Hop artists we’ve discovered and reviewed. Which in my opinion, if the major label artists don’t tone it down a bit, the Indie/Underground is gonna push them out of the way. Or these brilliant underground Hip Hop artists could possibly risk being plagiarized. 

Alonzo‘s track has a very R&B-oriented beat that makes this song melodic, emotional, innovative, and very memorable. It has that staying power where you could put this track on repeat, but better yet, let the tracks play out. Especially his song “Mystique”. Another song with a clear presentation of how well executed Alonzo‘s talent is with the forefront’s room to show off his dynamically gifted mic skills and witty nature to his rhyming.

Again, Alonzo is more solidified proof that Indie Hip Hop is going to be tossing a tarp over the majors and nailing down each corner with a railroad spike. Connect, listen, reach out, and get to know these artists before it’s too late! Because these artists are heading for much bigger things sooner than you think.

Artist Review: King Veli

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Miami’s Hip-Hop pioneer King Veli, represented by Production Company / Label Money Making Mafia, is one of today’s better influences on Hip-Hop’s new generation. He has the voice perfected for the genre, and can maintain his own hooks in a very dynamic way. Regardless, this Rapper knows how to draw you in.

Veli‘s track “Bounce” is a fun, witty song with a great flow, and he has a sing-songy approach. Part of him is Rapping, and another part is Singing. His R&B influence definitely puts a spin on the genre and makes it more laid back, as opposed to overdosing you on one single element to his overall dynamics. It’s a track that can be a club banger, or a chill-out weed smoking song that you can lay back and enjoy. 

The biggest part of King Veli is his voice. It just fits the genre like a glove. He has that perfect mid-ranged sound that can handle just about anything in his take on Hop Hop. His craft showcases not only wordsmithy, clever lyricism but also a very natural talent. He’s definitely an Artist that will be up and coming on fire with the right cards played. And from the looks of it so far, it seems promising.

Once again, especially in Miami, the underground scene talent tickles the musical brainwaves more than today’s mainstream most of the time. King Veli  is another Artist that is living proof of this. Listen to him now before he ends up on Hip Hop Weekly’s Next To Blow selection.

Artist Review: AMARU 

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


A great message and great vocals that perfectly parallel each other. This is a truly inspiring song, and Artist.

AMARU‘s single “Independence Day” is a song with catchy hooks, dynamic vocals, that showcases top-notch production, and has an Official Music Video with great visual narratives that add the power of the song’s overall delivery of its message.

AMARU has a fantastic image, gifted vocal ability, and you can tell from this track alone that his passion for music is ever present, along with the portrayal of positive vibes and keeping the concept of love and passion alive. 

The song’s content is bound to inspire you, spiritually uplift you, and make you want to explore more of AMARU‘s catalogue of music. His Official Music Video for “Independence Day” definitely gets you in a way where you can grasp more of his vibe of positivity, captivating image, and the song’s message in the most powerful way.

AMARU‘s single for “Independence Day” along with other songs of his, are currently available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and other digital outlets. 

We at Artist Reach recommend this song in every way; it has great charisma, a great beat, message, and vibe altogether. 10 out of 10. This is a must-listen.

Artist Review: The Mox & J. Project

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Chris Barbosa


An expressive journey into a multi-genre and multifaceted display of emotions, self reflection, and versatility.

Blending very infectious elements of Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop, The Mox & J. Project‘s Who We Are LP is definitely a creative collection of tracks that puts this dynamic duo on the mark. This is another one of those rare gems where you can’t just pick one song off of this album and call it a “hit” or a “single”. Because the entire album does justice, and stands out as a whole.

With a beautiful, soulfully mature and dynamic female vocalist bringing you the hooks, melodies, and lyrical sex drive to the table, it’s nearly impossible to ignore the character and persona that is being expressed through the very impressive vocal range and texture that solidifies her half of the duo’s equation. It’s mesmerizing and astonishing with the glow that her voice brings.

Jumping to the other half of the whole, we have a very charismatic and passionate flow from the rhymes, bars, and measures that are expressed through the male rapper’s edginess and self expressive nature. He has very clean vocal tones that perfectly meshes with his female partner of melody.

Who We Are is definitely appropriately titled from the self expressive tracks that encompass the meaning and uniqueness of the album. You get to grasp onto a very solidified and well-polished signature style, but you get a taste of something different in every track. That’s what makes this dynamic duo stand out with this album.

The Mox & J. Project are anything but a letdown. If you’re looking for something with a bold and new feel with many different songwriting techniques and surprisingly unique sensibilities, then Who We Are is an album just for you.
