Article by: Justyn Brodsky

I love sharing my testimony through my music.

Artists can be dime-a-dozen, but there is only one Jessica Mechell.

Emerging from the Jacksonville music scene in Florida, Christian Hip Hop & Gospel songwriter/recording artist Jessica Mechell began hitting the ground running in the music realm in 2016, and since that time has manifested into a versatile and multifaceted artist with her own signature sound and stylization.

Her inspirations and aspirations for music started in her childhood years at around age 11, when she quickly began building her craft and delving into her artistic merit. Known for her charismatic vocal delivery and spiritual lyrical content, Jessica’s music diligently touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; solidifying a form of Hip Hop & Gospel sensibilities that showcase her stage presence and songwriting factors in the most effective ways.

Honing her craft over many years, Jessica’s musicianship is also reminiscent of many artist influences including Missy Elliot, Lauryn Hill, Mary Mary, as well as several genre influences that range from Soul, Pop, Old School, and Vibe. She garnered a strong street buzz and internet presence after the release of her debut EP “Agape Love”.

Her upcoming anticipated new single “So Can I” is slated for release this Friday, and will be following up with her first full-length studio album later this year. Jessica will also be lining up an assortment of shows in support of her upcoming releases, and will also be launching a campaign that addresses self-esteem and identity issues. We at Artist Reach will be doing an exclusive review of the upcoming single this Saturday.

    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 #2: AMARU – “Champagne Attitude” LP

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    We are beyond stoked to bring back the king of dance, AMARU, back to the platform. If you caught our first review we did on his music, then you know you’re in for a treat.

    AMARU since his first review at Artist Reach hasn’t slowed his momentum down in the slightest. From show performances, an active YouTube channel, a vast array of music videos, magazine covers, commercials, and everything in between…we are proud to bring his new album Champagne Attitude to the forefront of the platform tonight.

    This self-produced/written & arranged album is a step up in the game from the widely-acclaimed Netherlands-based artist, and has several reasons as to why. First off, the production value is a through-the-roof kind of feel. From charismatic piano arrangements, synths, plugins, and every component contributed to this Dance album, there is no stone unturned on this record.

    The single “Low On The Dough” is a great example of this. Not only is the composition well crafted, but AMARU‘s melodies and lyrical structures is what truly makes this song a breath of fresh air.

    The verses are very versatile, charismatic, and mind-bending. It has some twists and turns you don’t see coming, and when everything comes together at the chorus, that’s when you really begin to grasp onto this track’s stroke-of-genius factors. It’s a high-energy dose of feel-good fun, and will definitely have you singing along before the song’s even over.

    While every song on this LP stands out, “Low On The Dough” is definitely the perfect track to make your entrance into AMARU‘s realm with, if you haven’t heard him yet. It’ll get you delving deeper into his discography, history, and artistic merit altogether. We can not recommend this album and artist highly enough. You can see (and hear) for yourself by checking out the links below to get your copy of Champagne Attitude right now. You’ll be glad we sent you there.

    Artist Review: Nadel Paris – “Ooh La La La La” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Pop artists can be dime-a-dozen, but there is only one Nadel Paris.

    Her acclaimed sophomore single “Ooh La La La La” starts out with her infectious chorus melody, and continues to flourish as the song’s high production value along with Nadel‘s very unique and versatile vocal range takes form and showcases her strengths in musicianship very effectively as the track plays out.

    It’s definitely one of those choruses that reels you in from the first listen, and entices you to look deeper into this track, as well as Nadel Paris‘s catalogue of other music altogether.

    Combining classic pop sensibilities from the older eras we’ve grown to know and love and integrated into today’s mainstream approach is what really makes this song the gem it really is. She brings out a strong showcase of musicianship, aura, relentless vocal talent, and a signature sound and stylization that separates her from your average run-of-the-mill artist.

    The song hit the ground running in the internet radio circuit, and she continues to garner new fans and listeners with every set of ears that discovers this song, and her music catalogue altogether. The song peaked at #31 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, and she even did a formal interview about her on-the-rise success with her insatiable drive and multifaceted talent and impact on the EDM/Pop scene in a very short time – reaching an amazing feat most artists have a hard time getting to, even with decades under their belt. But Paris came out swinging with “Ooh La La La La” and has no intention of slowing her momentum down anytime soon.

    Once you take a listen to this infectiously-catchy track, you’ll be singing it in your head (or out loud) relentlessly. It’s impossible not to absolutely love this song. Once you listen yourself, you’ll understand why.

    Artist Review: Natasha Jane Julian – “Now I Know” Single/EP

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky


    When it comes to turning heads and capturing the ears, renowned Pop recording artist Natasha Jane Julian does exactly just that with her recent EP Now I Know.

    Natasha, from a small mountain town in Southern California, gained a lot of her on-stage experience as a showgirl, performing relentlessly in theatres and dance shows. When Natasha moved her stomping grounds to the landscapes of Florida, her experience in music hit the ground running when she joined forces with an eclectic band called Psychedelic Mist. 

    A handful of shows and an EP later as a band, Natasha decided to spread her wings of versatility and began to find her vision as a solo artist by the time 2015 came around, and respectively departed from Psychedelic Mist. 

    This is when Natasha began her Artist Development process, and decided to take time off gracing the stage to hone her craft, find her sound, her musical niche, her inspirations as well as aspirations, and even learned piano during this time, which took place around 2016, and even added learning some guitar during the process; refusing to leave a stone unturned. 

    After some years of blossoming into a solo artist, Natasha Jane Julian released her debut EP in June 2016, Now I Know. The first single from this freshman-effort was her Rock-influenced track “Gemini Twin”. The EP received positive reception, critical acclaim, and eventually prompted Natasha to make her rounds throughout the cityscapes; she currently has an elite team of musicians now gigging her original songs all over the US, UK, and more.

    But the one that really stands out is her EP-title track, “Now I Know”. A song that’s tight, well-put-together, and charismatic. Natasha‘s mid to high singing approach breathes life into this song and really parallels the musicianship, as well as structures. It screams with melody as well and fits every piece of the song like puzzle pieces. So I have to really tip my hat to Natasha Jane Julian. Her musical acclaim and path is very promising.

    Artist Review: Jimmie Smith – “Forty Three” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky


    A spiritual soothing of the soul with the ability to sway your hips at the same time.

    That’s one of the things that came to mind with Florida-based R&B/Pop artist Jimmie Smith‘s single “Forty Three”. A groovy R&B song that immediately showcases a feel-good nature from the components of the initial beat and vocal melodies that really display the defining factors of this track altogether. Every melody fits perfectly with the song’s key signature and leaves plenty of room for Smith to bring his vocal talent’s impressive range to the forefront, which gives this song high likability factors.

    Though Smith presents himself with his own signature sound, you can hear influences ranging from industry powerhouse artists such as: Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Major Lazer, Bryson Tiller, and more.

    Jimmie Smith is an extremely gifted artist pushing the envelope of possibilities through distinct musical innovation. He possesses a hybrid approach to his music that remains authentic to his overall vision of a self-motivated prodigy navigating through the epitomes of the ever-changing music industry. And that’s a crucial factor among today’s artists. Because Smith is an artist that seems to understand that paying your dues and getting hands-on with the industry is very significant, and I believe that fact alone puts the up & coming artist ahead of the game, as opposed to a lot of artists these days that believe fame is an overnight endeavor (AKA “Tunnel Vision”).

    “Forty Three” is a soul-soother and hip-mover all rolled up in one rhythmic package with all the right components; melody, harmony, authenticity, and god-given talent that isn’t covered up or altered by post-production theatrics. It’s the perfect song to listen to if discovering Jimmie Smith for the first time, and it’s also a breath of fresh air that a song like this isn’t drowned in auto-tune or any kind of genre-bending. It’s a brilliant song utilizing elements of R&B, Soul, Vibe, and Hip Hop ingredients, making “Forty Three” a Number One favorite!
