Album Review: Blaze – “Born To Blaze” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you are looking for a highly spiritual and captivating record with a great story-telling method, then Triunion Music artist Blaze‘s Born To Blaze will not let you down.

This Christian Hip Hop artist brings spirituality to a whole new level that really grasps at your heart and your mind. Blaze‘s album is versatile, multifaceted, and incredibly charismatic with his vocal deliveries and inspirational lyrical content that gets to the heart of real life situations. It’s extremely deep, passionate, and a joy to behold.

The beats incorporate many different genre elements and make great use of instrumentation and plugins. Each track is ambient and really flows together with Blaze‘s messages perfectly, and also showcases a handful of feature artists that really add artistic merit to this record.

One track that really stands out is the opener, “I Surrender (feat. Sarah McTiernan)”. With a soulful female-vocal hook cruising through this song, Blaze really hits the ground running with his spiritual lyrics and clever narrative. With elements of ambient Rock and Reggae influences that add many different moods to this track, you can’t help but fall head over heals with this record immediately. It’s an opening track that lets you know that you’ll be listening to every track on this album from start to finish.

Each track on Born To Blaze not only provides us with Blaze‘s signature style, but offers up something new and effective in every measure. You won’t hear the same song twice, but you’ll know it’s coming from the same artist; and that’s a very hard feat to reach in today’s mainstream market.

Blaze is a complete standout of his caliber and we at Artist Reach honestly can’t recommend him enough. If you’re in the mood for something fresh, powerful, well-crafted and highly spirited, then Born To Blaze is just for you.

The album is available now on iTunes, Google Play, SoundCloud, and other digital retailers.

Artist Review: Emma Michelle – “Click Delete” (featuring Dani Cohn)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a knack for charisma, aspirations and musical persona, we have a new queen of catchy in Emma Michelle‘s single “Click Delete”.

Accompanied by a colorful official music video alongside feature artist Dani Cohn, the girls pair up for a fresh tag-teaming song with witty punchlines and contagiously catchy hooks. Being at such a young age, this song and video has catapulted Emma‘s career into overdrive, amassing over 200,000 YouTube views in the first week of its release. With a fairly mixed reaction among the general public, we at Artist Reach fully endorse this track and have several reasons as to why.

This young artist brings forth an image that is stylish and completely likable. She acts like a young girl, well, because she is. But sings even better; she has one of those voices that delivers a versatile yet subtle sensibility that shares equal parts in energy and tenderness, and knows how to really showcase her colorful image.

Sharing verses and vocal duties throughout the track and video between the singing and cinematic components with Dani Cohn also gives us a glance into Emma‘s ability to collaborate and share the spotlight. With both girls meshing well throughout the video and song equally, their natural talent is very evident throughout every measure. From singing to rapping, harmonizing and vocal transitioning, “Click Delete” delves us into Emma‘s (and Dani’s) world of fun, friendship, musicianship, and ability to entertain a mainstream following in the better part of today’s more modernized Pop genre.

The biggest recommendation we can give is to listen to this track for yourself, and definitely watch the video. Emma Michelle is one of those younger artists that is fast on-the-rise, and worth every minute of your time.

Artist Review: Poetic RockStar – “Gemini Dancer” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Soul. Poetry. And a rising star gives DMV-area artist Poetic RockStar the persona and identity that has been pivotal to his career in music.

While mastering his own craft in the writing and poetry worlds, he also utilizes his skills to encourage and inspire others to tap into their respective passions. However, it’s his own passion of writing that inspired PoeticRockStar into forming his own signature sound and genre called Neotry – a charismatic and stylistic combination of Jazz, Neo-Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, and Poetry; stirred with a modernized twist that brings out his renowned play on words, and straightforward bars-approach that sets him aside from your run-of-the-mill artist or rapper.

His song “Gemini Dancer” is a great introduction into PR‘s world, and really showcases every angle of his artistic merit in all its glory. With a simple and effective guitar progression driving this song forward, PR delivers a soul-infused hook with a conceptual flow and versatile approach to the everyday life of being single and ready to mingle.

Incorporating his signature Neotry sound and style into every story-telling verse, “Gemini Dancer” is a witty and brilliantly crafted track that has powerful performance value and originality. While touching on a very valid and all-too-often concept, he executes it perfectly with a very effective way of delivering a flow of words that you can easily resonate with, and enjoy in a whole different way.

He keeps this song upbeat, encourages crowd participation, and strongly boasts a genuinely positive vibe during every measure of this song. It has endless likability factors and a catchiness that is hard to achieve in this era of music.

You’re likely to recognize every facet of each genre implemented into this song, but it’s never been done quite like this. Poetic RockStar has set new boundaries for other artists of his caliber, and is gonna help lead the way with newer and fresher forms of artistic expression. Do yourself a favor and give yourself the Neotry experience that we got; you’ll be glad we recommended it.

Artist Review: Terah Boyd – “Created Me” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

An exercise of spiritual healing; if you’re in a dark place and need a restoration of your faith in God, then ASCAP starlet Terah Boyd will do exactly that with her inspirational Created Me EP.

And she is absolutely perfect for the role of the genre; her voice is very reminiscent of an angel, if one were to sing. From Gospel-oriented ballads and Soul-infused vocal deliveries, Boyd brings her God-given talent right to the forefront with this EP.

The EP starts out with the charismatic opener “The Eyes Of Faith”, a song that showcases Boyd‘s vocal abilities from almost any angle. The multi-layered chorus is definitely a treat, and really brings a spiritual energy into the track as her vocals soar through this song, along with the high quality production value and musicianship that really brings it all together.

With other songs from the EP taking on a softer tone, Boyd‘s versatility, content and multifaceted nature is just as effective and really gets you to delve deeper into her realm of faith, as well as your own.

While the EP is self-reflective, it also casts a wave of positive spirit and endless likability factors that can’t be ignored. She tackles each song with unwavering passion and perfect vocal control, showcasing every angle of her talent most effectively, as well as diligently.

Her soaring melodies in the popular anchor single “You Are” and the blissfully subtle “It Is Written” demonstrates this perfectly. From acoustic guitar textures and traditionally solidified piano progressions, Boyd‘s one-track vocals are effective, inspiring, and project a balance and composure that is very rare in today’s mainstream music.

She finishes off strongly with the Soul-captivating track “What You Deserve”, a song that encompasses a vibe from yesterday and today’s sensibilities. Boyd‘s several-part harmonies are perfected to a science on this uplifting song, and her signature sound really comes together with a dose of feel-good moods and melody catchiness. If you’re yearning for the good old days with a modernized twist into today’s world of music, this song definitely hits home right where the heart is.

It’s astonishing how much talent we come across at the Artist Reach camp. And you can add Terah Boyd to this roster. If you’re looking to strengthen your faith, mood and overall spirited nature, then Created Me is made just for you.

Artist Review #2: The Keymakers – “Burning Me Up” Single

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

We are proud to bring back dynamic duo The Keymakers with a fiery hot new single, “Burning Me Up”.

If you caught our first review of these two incredible voices, then you know how much we love these guys. And we are absolutely blown away with this new single. Once again we have an R&B and electronically infused song with two singers that showcase endless likability factors.

This is definitely a song for everyone, but especially for the ladies. With Usher-influenced vocals and their own versatile components that touch on originality and familiarity, “Burning Me Up” is an explosion of R&B heat with sex appeal, amazing talent, multifaceted vocal ranges, and a mainstream-worthy catchy chorus that’ll keep you singing along.

With two beautifully clean-vocal artists at the forefront of this song, it’s impossible not to hear their insatiably natural voice talent. While the song is produced very coherently with a multitude of multi-layered plugins, the beat and key signature/progression that drives this song forward is one of the biggest standouts in the production value. It leaves open an intelligently crafted opportunity to put some unforgettable vocal melodies and structures into the song; and The Keymakers duo do exactly just that. They put lyrical bliss in each verse, and put a climactic touch on the chorus that just makes you realize just how well written this song is.

I must say, when we reviewed these guys the first time around, I was definitely curious on hearing what these guys would put out later on. And they definitely exceeded my expectations. This is an astonishingly banging track, and if you heard them from our prior review of these guys, you gotta hear this one.
