Presenting a signature world sound with eclectic elements of Pop, Folk and Alt-Indie Rock, Lucy rounded up a team of prominent musicians to record a 5-track EP that is captivatingly catchy, lyrically uplifting, and really showcases her multifaceted songwriting style with many angles.

Delving into her craft to reflect personal positive vibes and experiences, the songs on this new record are influenced by her time spent living in Maui, Hawaii, where she embraced nature and the profound impact the island life has had on her. The lyrics and melodies touch on channeling spiritual evolution through gratitude, consciousness and helping one another achieve their dreams. The songs she writes are inspired by her experiences overcoming fear and breaking through boundaries to continue on the path of her destiny. This new music is also fueled by the freedom of traveling, doing what she loves, and seeing how we as people can contribute to the world around us by being ourselves and raising one’s vibration. It’s a record that is personal, and inspires to be inspired.

Lucy‘s chord progressions are smooth, sensual and parallel perfectly with her mid-ranged vocals and diligent melody structures. The full, wholesome sound from her band really captures the glow of each song and showcases her lyrical story-telling approaches very effectively. These tracks have many different genre elements as well, and have something for everyone.

For this EP, it’s no doubt that Lucy recruited some world renowned musicians. The songs were produced by John Avila (Oingo Boingo) who also plays bass on the album, plus Scott Page (Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Toto) on Saxophone, Anthony Logerfo (Promise of the Real) on drums, Alexander Burke (Save Ferris, Billy Ray Cyrus) on keys, and Rich Fisanick on lead guitar.

Artist Review: Aya & Ali – “Burn It Down” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Funky, flavorful and compellingly catchy, NYC-duo Aya & Ali come out swinging with their new highly anticipated single “Burn It Down”.

With rhythmic textures, mid-ranged snappy guitar riffs and female-fronted vocals with multifaceted melody choices, “Burn It Down” is definitely a next-level track that will easily raise the stakes for the indie artist realm, and turn heads in the mainstream music market. And with NYC being their stomping grounds, their potential and likelihood to make this happen is very much in their favor.

This track is also very versatile and touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; delving into a sound that gives their audience a fresh and modern feel, yet all the while staying relevant, identifiable and relatable. It has instant-likability factors that are paralleled between the songwriting, execution, and overall production value, and it never wavers from its aura and energy.

The song also has an anthemic message as well, and has a lot of depth. The song title and concept touches on “burning the negativity and turning it into a light that guides us to positivity”, a way to condemn racism and promote diversity. A song that identifies us as an equal human race with music being our cornerstone to bettering ourselves and inspiring one another. It’s a song, when listened to close enough, that could really put positive change in place and pave the way for a better future. For everyone, as a human race.

This song inspires you to be inspired, and has a world of talent expressed in Aya & Ali‘s artistic merit and musicianship factors. If “Burn It Down” is the first time you hear this duo, then you’re in for a real treat. You’ll be very enticed to dive deeper into this duo’s previous catalogue, as well as keep a close eye on their future prospects.

Artist Review: Fiction Dogs – “Single Sunday” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Roaring guitar riffs, a pounding rhythm section and gritty, catchy vocal melodies make for a tasty concoction with power trio Fiction Dogs‘ newest album Single Sunday. A 6-track record of anthemic tunes with a very versatile signature sound and unwavering musicianship factors that keep you on the edge of your seat.

With the start of their opening number “Let’s Pretend”, the band comes out swinging with high-gain guitar progressions and unrelenting energy that will easily blow the roof off every house in your neighborhood. This is a track where if Black Sabbath started a 90s punk band, this would likely be the result. And it doesn’t disappoint. What’s great about this record (and band) is the authentic production value. There are no tricks, no post production theatrics, no auto-tune. These dudes keep it real by plugging in, playing, and relying on actual good songwriting to carry the weight for them. A rarity among today’s music realm.

Another component that makes this album a gem is the band’s multifaceted take on Rock music. They have a signature style, but showcase many different angles of their craft. Tracks like “Two Times Today” and “Like God” really delve into the trio’s true core, and prove that quality songwriting structures and vocal melody choices are high on their priority list; and that their versatile take on Rock-infused music can come in different forms. These are charming tunes without the unnecessary noise or diversionary tactics from the actual talent. These guys keep it 100% real.

The best part about this album is the staying power and classic status – it’s a record that has the ability to stay with you even after it’s over, and leaves you with good vibes all around. Kinda like the feeling of reaching the end of the rollercoaster – you just wanna get right back on. It’s an album that has a classic feel, and has songs you can come back to time and time again without skipping over one track. Single Sunday is a stroke of genius for the Rock genre, and brings us a throwback feeling of the 80s, 90s, as well as today’s better Rock sensibilities.

About the album:

The band recently reunited when Terrance McAbee rejoined Michael Williams and Craig Florio back in Florida after a year exploring the west coast. The group never stopped working while Terrance was away, recording most of the new album during a ‘Single Sunday’ when the three connected for an all day, all night session. The new project is a half-album featuring music written by all three members with Craig singing and playing the drums, while Terrance and Mike play guitars and bass. The second half of the album is nearly complete, but growing as the band member/roommates keep writing and falling in love with new songs. It can be easy to hear the Springsteen and Pearl Jam influences; however, the guys will just as often play Van Morrison or Eminem. The entire project was recorded at Maple Studio in Clearwater, Florida with help from Pro Tools, Gibson and Fender. 2019 will be a busy year primarily focused on the west coast of Florida and a growing digital presence. ‘Fun songs about sad stuff’ is the band’s approach, embedding an underlying sense of anguish in the subtext of the lyrics, with uplifting melodies and poetic word play.

“Single Sunday” is currently available on Spotify and other digital music retailers and streaming platforms. If this is the first time discovering Fiction Dogs, then you’ll be thanking us later. You’ll be more than happy you gave this album a listen.
