Press Release: Pop/Folk Artist Bryce Hitchcock Releases New Single “Two”

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Recognized as “an artist to watch”, Bryce Hitchcock’s music is rooted in folk-pop, country blues, and jazz. Fans have heard Bryce as the voice of Deuce in the Final Fantasy Type-0 HD video game and she was recently featured singing and acting on the hit FX show Atlanta.

Bryce‘s new single “Two” is about a girl who isn’t ready to commit 100% of herself to her relationship. She’s afraid to be depended on, and even more afraid of depending on someone else. Bryce‘s strong smokey voice carries the heavy subject matter and shows amazing maturity for such a young girl. Bryce brings back deep lyrical content reminiscent of such legends as James Taylor and Carly Simon but keeps it fresh and new with a young sound and modern production. In an era of over produced, glossy pop music Bryce is keeping it real.

Two” was recorded in Ireland with Stuart Gray at Jealoustown Studios and a music video was filmed in downtown Nashville, TN by Steven C. Knapp of Knapptime Creative LLC. The song may be titled “Two” but Bryce‘s songwriting and voice deserves to be number one. “Two” is currently released on Spotify and all digital music platforms.

Artist Review: Collin McInelly – “Change” EP & “Home” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Artistically merited, authentic and ambient, Collin McInelly‘s voice is blissful, hypnotizing and showcases an array of ranges that gives him endless versatility.

With his 4-track visceral Alt/Indie-infused EP Change, we hear a collection of songs that tell compelling stories in different chapters. Each song is intelligently intertwined within the same universe, but shows different angles of how McInelly articulates himself. From anthemic piano measures, melodic guitar progressions and atmospheric vocal textures, these tracks delve into a signature sound and style that really showcases McInelly as a true original of his kind. You’ll hear something different each time, but you’ll know it’s still coming from the same artist. And that’s what makes these songs truly magical – the perfect paralleling of consistency and diversity.

McInelly definitely knows how to construct very effective chord progressions that allow him to make brilliant use of his vocal range and the melody choices he accompanies with it. His tones are soothing, intimate, and at times ominous as well. From subtle approaches to upbeat and climactic song structures, each song and chapter from Change really lets you get to know Collin McInelly on a higher level than your average artist.

His newest single “Home” is the perfect follow-up track and next-level song that offers up components from everything you heard with his EP, and really puts McInelly‘s musicianship factors into one intelligently crafted package. The song is rhythmic and soulful, with a kick drum tempo that could easily remind you of a genuine heartbeat that beats along to every measure of the song. It’s a track that embraces an aura of emotions, vibes, and the overall nature of McInelly‘s artistic merit, and has a very thought provoking sensibility. You can hear his sound evolve in “Home” and really puts forth anticipation to what he has up his sleeve.

Collin McInelly is the perfect artist for today’s Alt/Indie wave, and can be appreciated by any avid listener of genres that resonate with melody and quality songwriting; both musically and lyrically. He will easily become one of your new favorite artists before the year is out.

Press Release: Trey Wonder Set To Release His Sophomore Album “The Ghost Of My Father” On November 23rd

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Grungy, versatile and unwaveringly charismatic with his viscerally multi-genre Indie/Punk approach, Hawaiian island-based artist Trey Wonder is geared up to release his sophomore record The Ghost Of My Father.

If Weezer and Radiohead started a 90s-era punk band, then Trey Wonder would definitely be recruited as their lead singer. And the brilliance of both groundbreaking signature sounds is what The Ghost Of My Father brings to the table. We have a collection of tracks that dynamically blend an edge-of-your-seat Indie sensibility, and several elements of punk, grunge, and an eclectically melodic style that is reminiscent of several rock eras.

Each self written and self produced track is comprised of a clever mixture with musical elements that include melodically versatile vocals, loud and crunchy guitar progressions, a tight knit pounding rhythm section and dangerously catchy choruses. He’s an original in his own right, but still can be heard as recognizable among the drawn influences from some of yesterday’s and today’s rock icons. You never hear the same thing twice, but you can tell it’s the same artist commanding the wheel, and the infectiously catchy overdubs in every chorus will stick with you throughout the record even after it’s over.

On top of this record being a follow up to Trey‘s predecessor Nice Fish, this new album is also an attribute to his father, and is being released on the anniversary to his death on November 23rd. This record is for any avid Indie Rock listener that yearns for the glory days when punk was actually good, and wasn’t afraid to show its melodic side. The Ghost Of My Father will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms on Friday.

Artist Review: Through Infinity – “The Sight Of An Eagle” Single/Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Anthemic, powerful and melodically visceral, Croatian Indie/Alt-Rock band Through Infinity takes us through a cinematic journey with their anchor single “The Sight Of An Eagle”.

Possibly one of the most beautiful locations a music video has ever been filmed at, “The Sight Of An Eagle” is a breathtaking experience from the very second it begins. With a dynamically paralleled Piano and Flute intro that foreshadows the song’s chorus, this song brings every emotion to the forefront with its catchy nature and Indie approach. The song has an anthemic grittiness that is hard to explain, and is very innovative – almost completely ahead of its time.

But this video’s stunning cinematography is an absolute show stealer and makes the listening experience all the more powerful. With a great vocal buildup between the singer and the band throughout the well crafted and ominously dark verses, we get a sense of anticipation that almost no other song has ever accomplished. It’s an edge-of-your-seat feeling with a blending of moods that almost separates your body and mind. And when the chorus hits, it hits home right where the heart is.

And that’s one of the song’s inescapable highlights – the chorus. Bringing us the full band version of what the intro eased us in with, we get a chorus that sticks with you in a way that will heighten your senses. It’s a captivatingly powerful chorus that is very rare among a lot of today’s contemporary artists, and the multi-genre nature of the song is really something to behold that truly makes Through Infinity a real original outfit.

The interchangeable harmonies between the woodwind, keyboards, guitar and vocals are intelligently blended and all keep a balance and composure that is almost unheard of. It comes together in a way where your emotions are at the forefront, and makes the visual aspect of what we hear in music a completely new experience when presented in this way. When you really sit back and clear your mind to watch this song and video, it’ll give you a whole new sensation to the music video experience with a whole new aspect altogether. It’s something you need (and hear) to see to believe.

Through Infinity breaks absolute new grounds when it comes to the visual aspect to music. After watching/listening to “The Sight Of An Eagle”, you may not view music videos quite the way you used to anymore. This video will grab your undivided attention from the very beginning, and even stays with you after it’s over.

Artist Review: Jonathan Alexander – “17:34” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Electric, eclectic and blissfully composed, we get a nostalgic feeling from Jonathan Alexander‘s newest EP 17:34.

Combining an older sound with today’s modern production value, Jonathan Alexander presents us with a collection of tracks that explore visceral moods, catchy vocal melodies and dynamic guitar swells with very tastefully effective additives.

His vocal range is perfect for the Indie/Rock approach this record tackles, and carries a voice that could draw comparisons to John Lennon, Chris Martin and Adam Levine. But still an original in his own right. One brilliant thing about this EP though is the versatility of the tracks. Each song has a designated signature sound, but comes at you with different angles.

From the softer atmospheric tones of “Better Off Without You” to the more upbeat and electronically-infused “Light On”, Jonathan showcases his vocal approach and strong songwriting factors with catchy choruses, story-telling lyrics and chorus-like additives that lend blissful vocal textures that give each song an anthemic quality. Each song resonates perfectly with his voice, and the clean guitar parts have enchanting swells that really delve deep into the song structures and overall atmosphere of this EP’s aura.

It’s very rare that an EP with this kind of songwriting quality comes along in this era. There’s nothing convoluted or unnecessary about this record at all – each instrument has its rightful place in every song and the vocal melody choices are intelligently crafted and executed. You can tell that each track has been gone over with a fine tooth comb, and proves that Jonathan Alexander was determined to put out an amazing collection of tracks – which is exactly what he did.

Artist Review: Sam C-B – “I Know What It’s Like To Be Loved” Single/Video

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Funky, fun and inspirational to the modern day teen pessimist, Sam C-B gives us a reality check of what matters most in his new single “I Know What It’s Like To Be Loved”.

Accompanied by a colorfully clever music video shot exclusively with a cell phone, Sam‘s craft is definitely an absolute original and ahead of his time. Writing and recording under a genre he calls “Indie Rop” (a balanced blend of Indie Rock and Rap), the teen artist conveys a message that no matter what adversities you face while growing up in your teenage years, everything is okay when you realize that you know what it’s like to be loved (as the title suggests).

This is a brilliant song though, and is actually a stroke of genius if you take a close enough listen. Sam‘s style is definitely versatile and appealing, combining eclectic elements of a Pop-infused Indie sound with lyrical techniques that fit the realm of old school Hip Hop with the occasional melody or hook to give it a flavorful topping. His vocal style is charismatic, witty, relatable and undeniably catchy with every rhyming scheme he pieces together. He has a vast array of likability factors and his sporty/edgy image parallels perfectly.

This track, which utilizes a lot of instrumental textures in its production value, also expresses more of a story-telling narrative rather than a collection of convoluted measures – which is a breath of fresh. It has an old school approach yet still has a hybrid sound for the modern era that keeps it relevant. But what’s most intriguing is the perspective of the song from the artist himself, and he definitely delivers up an in-depth explanation of what the song’s overall theme means in a way that you can take a walk a mile in his shoes.

‘I Know What It’s Like To Be Loved’ is about the teenage experience and how I’m dealing with it. Probably, like most teenagers, I occasionally get on a bit of a downer and sometimes I’m a bit confused. However, when it gets like that, I’ve learnt to give myself a reality check and remind myself that I am so lucky because I do know what it’s like to be loved. Even when life seems crap, I make myself aware that, compared to most people in the world, I’m incredibly lucky…” -Sam C-B

For an artist this young and talented, “I Know What It’s Like To Be Loved’ is a song that showcases Sam most effectively and really leaves an everlasting impression of his versatility, diversity, originality and him as a person and persona equally. You’ll feel like you’re getting to know him on a personal level as well as a prospective musical one. We can’t recommend him highly enough!
