Artist Review: Sassy Vee – “I Should Go” & “Emotional” Singles

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

A gem like Sassy Vee is a girl with a vision and a girl with a vibe. She’s an absolute trifecta in the bigger picture altogether – she has class, beauty, and insatiable talent that is passionately utilized in her own signature style of music that is compellingly catchy, lyrically visceral and atmospherically ambient. And she showcases these very crucial components in her anchor singles “I Should Go” and “Emotional”. Two tracks with different eclectic approaches, but diligently executed by Sassy herself no matter what elements each song presents itself with. These are two very versatile tracks that truly bring you into the musical realm that Sassy delivers to the forefront; and never wavers from her flavorful sound she carries with her throughout every song that leaves you refreshed and aching to hear more.

“I Should Go” is a great mid-pacing yet subtle song that serves up as a flavorful modern treat into today’s Pop sensibility with Indie elements. From lyrically visceral and eased-up verses that beautifully showcase Sassy‘s voice as more of a clever and delicate buildup, the verses really caress her vocal textures and tenderness that really shows her authenticity. It’s the perfect buildup of soft-sung narratives before the powerful chorus jumps in to tie the song together with Sassy‘s wholesome vocal dubs and mid-to-high range melodies. She truly grasps onto the song’s aura and key signature to write and perform the perfect balance and composure for this track, and really puts her strengths right out to the forefront. She clearly has a knack for writing vocal parts that are not only catchy, but compelling as well, and really puts forth a style that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity, giving her audience a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable.

Her second single “Emotional” is more R&B-infused and reminiscent of the classic Motown Records era with tasteful mixtures of today’s more authentic and eclectic Soul inspired artists that perform R&B the way it was meant to be. The track is more charismatic, fun, and shows a different angle to Sassy‘s lyrical techniques and artistic merit. It’s a track that any R$B listener can appreciate, including previous generations that witnessed the manifestation of the genre, and the components that came with it. “Emotional” is also a song that truly sings from, and speaks to the soul. It resonates with the truly passionate music fan that wants to delve into an artist’s true core, to see and hear who they really are as a songwriter. All the while relating to the song in a whole, and finding out how they can identify with it.

Overall, Sassy‘s singles are triumphant, meaningful and really bring out different angles of her talent and songwriter. She’s a rare gem among many artists of her caliber, and has a very promising prospect of what 2019 has in store for her, as well as beyond. By the sounds of it – Sassy Vee is not going anywhere, anytime soon. It’s artists like her that today’s music really yearns for.

Artist Review: Bami – “Stream Of His Grace” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Captivatingly talented with her voice and spiritually authentic in her message, rising Gospel artist Bami brings us on a modernized journey into the realms of uplifting our Faith in God with her much awaited versatile new EP Streaming Of His Grace.

Bami‘s sound is explosive, multifaceted and graciously fun with a ton of multi-genre additives and flavorful beats on this 4-track record. Her electronically-infused sound combines an array of funky riffs, hypnotic jazzy tempos and a salsa/tropical and Latin edge that brings out her voice very effectively and tastefully. Her mid-ranged voice tackles very spiritual content about her Faith in the Lord and really brings a new and fresh approach to the legacy of Gospel music with her compellingly dynamic production and highly intricate song structures.

Delving into the songs themselves, the musicianship factors are unwavering. The rhythmic tempos are extremely neat and tidy and grasp onto composition techniques reminiscent of many jazz and fusion eras, but that’s just one of many components. Her Pop elements also add to the intuitive song structures and really helps carry Bami‘s voice in a way that is front and center, with very tasteful melodies in her vocal approach that resonate perfectly with the bluesy rhythms and chord progressions. This is a modern day triumph of Gospel music that could easily take on a life of its own, and really showcases an amazing range of production techniques and songwriting structures that are rare in Gospel music, if not new altogether.

The most striking part of Streaming Of His Grace is the originality. The record does not emulate any other artist and Bami really delves into a signature sound that is in her own right. You can draw comparisons to her if you think hard enough, but there’s no question that her approach in Gospel is anything but ordinary. If you’re looking for a spiritual record that is also musically fascinating and compelling, then Streaming Of His Grace will absolutely blow your mind.

Artist Review: VeRich – “Benefit of a Doubt” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Every once in awhile you run into an artist that truly hits the ground running. One that grabs your undivided attention from the very first listen, and leaves an everlasting impression on you that is insatiably unwavering. This is exactly the feeling we get from VeRich‘s newest EP Benefit of a Doubt.

This is a record with a strong message. It’s music for the underdog; people that have true potential, but end up being overlooked. It’s an EP attributed to those who are willing to do the legwork and whatever it takes to make dreams a reality.

With hypnotic versatility in his take on modern Soul and R&B, VeRich‘s style is multifaceted with his very effective vocal range and lyrically clever punchlines. His electronically infused signature sound also adds the perfect splash of Hip Hop with very dynamically crafted drum parts and multilayered vocal melodies that resonate with every song diligently and passionately. His powerful vocal projection in the track “Nocturnal” demonstrates this perfectly. From elite production value to brilliantly structured songwriting components, this melodic and anthemic track brings VeRich‘s voice right to the forefront with ambience and wholesomeness. His vibrant tones and next level lyrical techniques are futuristic and ahead of its time. This track screams out passion from beginning to end.

Jumping over to his electronic banger “Junky” and the atmospherically visceral “Your Loss”, both tracks add a plethora of musicianship factors and different angles to VeRich‘s craft and artistic merit. His vocal range fits like a warm glove throughout every melodic measure and every track resonates like chapters in a book. But the best thing about it is the EP never becomes repetitive nor does it use recycled ideas. These are carefully crafted songs, and the precision that went into the perfect parallels between the authentic songwriting and the producer’s crucial touches are truly something to behold, and very rare in its own right among today’s modern music realm.

If this is the first time you’ve ever heard VeRich, then prepare for an edge of your seat listening experience. If you already know him, then Benefit of a Doubt will be an absolute treat. Either way, he is an original in his own right, yet still brings familiarity to the table with some of today’s chart-topping superstars. At this rate, VeRich is well on his way to taking his place alongside the industry’s major players; and he’ll be a household name every music fan will recognize.
