Artist Review: Roman

Review by: Justyn Brodsky, Dave Welsh, & Martin Abrams


NYC-based Country/Indie Acoustic artist, Roman, that also encompasses a 90’s influence with his dynamic and catchy acoustic-oriented centerpiece to his music, has been building himself quite the empire lately; among fans, presentation, and overall musical inspiration and evolution as a professional musician.

And with that said, his upcoming album, appropriately titled Empire, has collectively been an anticipated release among fans, and also some of Roman‘s best material to date. 

Tracks from this upcoming LP like “Thank You” and “Without You Here” demonstrate perfect elements of what to expect from Roman‘s upcoming release. He’s been hard at work in the studio with this album and has yet to show any disappointment with the samples he’s released. His sound is versatile, eclectic, and expresses a very hybrid, emotional, and captivating signature sound that is not only refreshing but also universal in a way where almost anyone can enjoy a musical-approach in the way Roman does.

His album Empire is definitely a collection of tracks that pays homage to not only an insatiable era of music with today’s sensibility, but to his fans as well. And to anyone new that discovers Roman, will be very glad they did.

Artist Review: Stone White – Get On Down (Official Music Video)

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


An exercise in funky, energetic, and theatrical antics that will force you onto the dance floor. Recording Artist Stone White takes us on a fun, witty, and charismatic journey into his comedic music video concept and swingin’ grooves with the Official Music Video for his song “Get On Down”, a hit single from his album Groove Thang.

There are so many different elements that makes Stone White a standout of his kind. From his dancing/choreography abilities and his groove-infused horn section that solidifies his band’s signature sound, this definitely brings us back to an era of music that never died in the first place. In fact, White has put a new spin on it with his high production value and his James Brown and Jamiroquai crossover.

This video just amps you up from the beginning and has a comedic edge immediately from the beginning. Ever seen elderly folk from a nursing home get out of their wheelchairs and walkers to bust out some top-of-the-line dance moves? Well, you will now. It’s a great theme, fits the formula, and with the insatiable talent that the music brings not only makes this video effective, but addictive. This is music we don’t really hear often anymore, and I truly think our friends over at Motown would be enamored by an artist like Stone White.

If you’re looking for something fun, refreshing, with energy that will absolutely captivate you without a dull moment, this video is for you; as well as the song altogether.

Artist Review: Brianna Musco 

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


I’ve always had a special place in my heart for female musicians, especially those that can really master the art of the six-string. A lot of new artists come out of the gate however, by utilizing their talent in performing YouTube covers (even in live shows as well) to get their voice out there for the world to discover them before they break out into original music.

We have the perfect example of this with Indie-Acoustic artist Brianna Musco. From recording live-performance videos of herself playing her own versions of artist greats like Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, and many more, Brianna hits it out of the park with her high-quality recorded acoustic renditions of some of today’s radio favorites with her own breed of sound and texture. 

She’s charismatic, fun to watch, and upon discovery will have you captivated in her overall persona. She’s got a laid-back, free spirited approach and carries the torch with her soulfully soothing vocals that go perfectly with her acoustic approach. Add in some low-end keyboard parts, and Brianna Musco is a one-woman army with multi-talented and multifaceted qualities; rendering the listener curious with anticipation for what her original music will bring when she finally unleashes it.

This girl deserves your undivided attention in whole. There’s only a handful of Indie-Female multi-musicians that can bring the goods to the table like Brianna Musco. Discover her now so you can be one to say that you found her first.

Artist Review: Nikki Shae

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


There are some artists that have that niche; that power to pull you in with their undeniable talent, sensational songwriting, and a voice that sings to your soul. Country/Pop Starlet Nikki Shae has this ability, and her musical persona along with the top-notch production value that showcases her songs perfectly is what parallels her natural beauty and talent, ensuring you to love her from the very listen.

Her track “Favourite Hello (Hardest Goodbye)” is a very anthemic and versatile ballad-oriented song that immediately encompasses Shae‘s perfect vocal range for a song like this. It’s an emotional grasp that plays with your heartstrings, and with a powerful chorus to accompany her spot-on vocal harmonies and melody structures, you’ll be falling in love with this song the very first time you give it a listen. 

Her other track, “Let Me Love You” is more upbeat with more Rock and Pop sensibilities that shows a whole different side to Shae. Her vocal approach is just as dynamic and beautifully crafted, but still gives you that musical butterfly sensation in your stomach when you listen to her soothing voice in the forefront through every measure. This charismatic song once again showcases eclectic and high-quality production value that brings out the best of Shae‘s vocal structures, and clever lyricism that has a witty edge. Another flawless track that will leave you wanting more from this artist as she again fills your heart with soul-soothing melodies with her beautiful vocal range. 

All in all, this is not your average run-of-the-mill Country-coated outfit. There are insatiable elements of strong musicianship, above-average songwriting abilities, and an ambient signature sound that gives you an instant comfort for any and every listener that discovers Nikki Shae. I can definitely see this artist going very far with the solid material that she’s armed with. Even if you aren’t a Country music fan, Nikki Shae will be an exception, hands down. She is as good as they come, and you will be astonished from your very first listen.

Artist Review: Sienna – “Quintessence” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to production value, it’s all about the elements of how and why a song is effective, and the uniqueness that is carried with it. We get an innovative, punchy, knockout beat banger with Producer Sienna‘s single “Quintessence”. A bump-and-grind go-getter track that brings a vibrant and bass-oriented chemistry to the table that puts solidification into musical innovation.

With a lot of today’s creators in the world of EDM, it’s imperative to showcase your versatility and composing ability in the best way possible, so you can give yourself and your audience an in-depth impression of your expression. Sienna has a very well-rounded craft with this track, and the intensity of the rotund low end combined with the anticipation from the song’s buildup is what really makes this track the gem that it really is.

If you have a bass-thumping sound system, then “Quintessence” will likely rumble through your entire neighborhood. It’s energetic, witty, clever, and has some great twists and turns as the song builds into a beautiful climax. It has a simple approach in its beginnings, and I believe it’s the type of simplicity that really makes this track effective when all the other elements play out.

Sienna definitely has a brilliant ear for detail and is worth checking out in every way. She delivers the goods with this single, and you’ll probably find yourself doing more research on more of her music after cranking “Quintessence” through your speakers.

Artist Review: Jerome “J-Easy” Weaver

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

An inspirational sound and vibe that caresses the soul, Jerome “J Easy” Weaver captivates audiences from all over the landscape with his world-class Jazz sound with beautiful integrations of Swing, Bossa-Nova, and R&B moods. 

Both of his releases, “Just Me” and “Cooling Water” offer up many magical and inspirational qualities in Weaver‘s self-written and self-produced compositions. With great classical uses of Caribbean style drum tempos, Saxaphone leads, and well-polished guitar progressions, we have an innovative and dynamic sound that is soothing, beautifully crafted, and universal with the advantage of bringing a traditional style of music to the table that could be booked at high class events, weddings, hotels, cruises, and just about anywhere.

Weaver‘s influences range from dynamic composers such as George Benson, Bill Withers, and Lee Ritenour. And he has been blessed to work with Presonus Studio One, Ableton Live, Falcon, and Band-In-A-Box; recording distributed exclusively through CD Baby.

As an artist, he gathers many personal inspirations from his wanderlust. He has been to many different countries, islands, as well as events that host his favorite genres of music. He is a true Jazz enthusiast and really brings his love for the genre to the forefront with his compositions. This is music for the soul and spirit, unconditionally. Weaver has been a professional Musician for years, and his showcase of talent is a joy to behold. If you love Jazz, then “Just Me” and “Cooling Water” will lift your spirits and remind you just how much of an impact this genre really is, and always has been.

Artist Review: MVJOR ARCVNA

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


I’ve come across a spectrum of different EDM artists and projects over this past year, and each of them showcased their own sensibilities and elements that contributed to the appreciation of their craft. But with Musician/Producer MVJOR ARCVNA‘s LP Tower: Volume I, an album with many impressive multi-genre elements, we have an approach of soaring melodies coming from all angles in dynamic, beautiful ways. If you love a melodic approach, then this LP will be your anthem.

Every track from Tower offers up something unique and versatile, but the track that grabbed me was “Funk Pusher”. From clever Post-Production to dynamic instrument usage, including a western-oriented acoustic riff-bender, this track really jumps at you with its melodic textures, ambient melody leads, powerful uptempo beat structure, and a mood that is very comforting as well as energetic.

However, it carries a unique blissful signature sound with it. Nothing ends up being repetitive nor does this song tend to outdo itself in any way, it’s a perfect blend of many defining factors of what makes a song effective; and in my opinion, it’s the imagery that also parallels the moods this song gives off. You can close your eyes, take in every melodic measure, and let the mood caress the airwaves. Or you can rock out to this, and admire every measure’s versatility and uniqueness. The Hip Hop vocals also added a very anthemic tone to the entire song that really showcases the production value. It fits the formula, adds to the chemistry, and is completely on-point with the song’s aura.

Another song that stole me away is the ballad-oriented “SlowerCloser (Letters To You)”. A different formula of how the song plays out, but still just as effective as its predecessor. With the beautiful Male & Female duet-style duel-vocals and the subtle textures to build up the song, we have another masterpiece for the eardrums and the soul. The hook really grabs hold of you and eases you in to the down tempo and ambient progression, once again accompanied by great use of instruments and plugins that solidify this song into something very beautifully crafted. The melodies are once again one of the biggest defining factors present throughout the whole track. The more you listen, the more you start to believe that this is music completely impossible to dislike. This song will absolutely melt you.

There is an overall key signature sound in MVJOR ARCVNA‘s approach that really showcases his brilliance behind the mixing board, and the songwriting complex. It’s a sound that his fans can recognize, and appreciate in the way he is meant to be. Take a listen to Tower: Volume I and experience an astonishing presence of audio and imagery with undeniable melody in the forefront. You won’t be disappointed. Prepare for something new and beautiful.
