Press Release: AMA Iziian Slated To Drop His Album “Woke” On December 21st

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

If this were a competitive sport; I would be Bruno Mars & Childish Gambino vs Travis Scott & Prince.. with Led Zeppelin as referee

With an insatiable knack for smooth groovy guitars, glistening vocal melodies and versatile song structures, AMA Iziian proves that his upcoming album Woke will be one of the most multifaceted records to release before the year is out.

Comprised of charismatic vocals and harmonies that are reminiscent of today’s mainstream Pop artists, AMA‘s edgy Alt/Rock and at-times electronically grungy sound brings a new wave of funky riffs and measures to the forefront with undeniably catchy melody placements. The album screams of versatility; you’ll hear an array of different elements with each track, but know it’s still coming from the same artist. And that’s one of the greatest components of Woke – there’s something for everyone on this record.

Moving through his verses with a story-telling sweetness and high-ranged R&B infused vocal approach, we get to experience a solid range of different angles to AMA‘s artistic merit. From a vibrant energy in his opening number “Get It Together” to more ominously subtle textures in “Gentleman”, the facets of his signature sound are present at all times with a twist of something different in his highly eclectic sound. It’s an absolute rollercoaster from start to finish, and will surprise you by its retro style while being able to maintain an indie sensibility that is still mainstream-worthy.

But one of the most compelling things about this album is its ability to have staying power — where AMA‘s music stays with you even after the album is over. From melody structures that stay in your head or guitar riffs that have you guessing what’s next, no matter what, Woke is an album that stays with you and resonates with your musical fascinations. You’ll never hear anything quite like it, and you’ll be addicted to each track like a bad habit.

Woke officially drops on December 21st and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s the perfect release to end the year with, as well as begin your resolutions with for 2019. AMA will also be releasing his single “Naked Ballerina” on December 4th, which will also be released everywhere. If this is your first time discovering AMA Iziian, you’ll be very glad you did. Strap yourself in for a ride.

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: JAY’LA – “Come Up” and “Goodbye” Singles

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

By the looks (and sounds) of what rising female Hip Hop and R&B Artist JAY’LA has put out, her prospective future with her charismatic flow and angelic hooks are very promising.

Since emerging from the studio, the rising-starlet released her two debut anchor singles that both showcase different angles of her signature sound, and has left everlasting impressions of avid music listeners since the song’s dropped. And both tracks serve up a sound that is recognizable with a plethora of likability factors.

First thing is JAY’LA‘s versatility – showing a straight up charismatically rhymed banger-style track with atmospheric textures in her single “Come Up”, and the ambience, angelic vocal harmonies and blissful melody arrangements in her R&B-infused second single “Goodbye”, the more emotionally supercharged track of them both.

Both songs carry a familiarity of JAY’LA‘s signature sound and even though both songs have different approaches, her craft and artistic merit are still at the forefront, and showcases her looks and talent appropriately without having to drown her in post production theatrics. This is another major contributing factor – her authenticity. Her ability to really shine through no matter what the approach of the song may be.

Both “Come Up” and “Goodbye” are tracks that really bring out dynamic and multifaceted sides to JAY’LA‘s talent and approach as an artist. And once you take a listen, you’ll be definitely keeping a close eye on her next moves in her music career.

Artist Highlight: Slyboy619

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Artist highlights on our platform have been a great opportunity to grasp onto artists on the rise that are making their way into the industry and destined to leave their mark. The artists that have genuine ambitions, are willing to endure the legwork and base their careers on the passion of creating music.

One of those artists is South Maryland’s Slyboy, a young up-and-comer that started out dabbling in music during his high school freshmen year, and manifested into something more serious by the time his senior year came around. And since then he has diligently built his craft, became acquainted with producers, has collaborated with other artists and has put together a handful of tracks that are noteworthy, melodic and multifaceted.

Slyboy describes his music as Hip Hop/Sly, something he considers his identity and represents his artistic merit as well as persona behind the mic. And after taking a listen to some of his tracks, it turns out that his style is a very versatile one. And is thoroughly enjoyable.

His track “Tonight” is insatiably melodic and has an atmospheric tone that really gives this song great pacing and structure. Utilizing more of a modern sing-songy R&B style, we get a swift blend of vocal melodies and clever lyrical punchlines that really delve into a narrative that tells a story very effectively. The track is very captivating and has impressive vocal arrangements that really tie the key signatures together.

His next number “Therapy Cypher” stays in its ambient aura of atmosphere, and has a plethora of feature artists from different cities and locations. Comprised of catchy vocal harmonies and well-placed shared verses, this emotional rollercoaster dives into the world of self medicating and the anguish that creates the cause and effect. It’s a cautionary tale that has amazing collaborative efforts, and leaves you with a visceral listening experience.

Then jumping over to “I Rock Hard”, a self-awareness track about the trials and tribulations of dealing with a bad breakup. It’s a very ambient beat structure and gives Slyboy room to showcase different angles of his vocal range, and gives this song a very ethereal touch with its ominous lyrical content. But the resolution of the song makes this one all the more worth it – when you realize that no matter how down you are on yourself, you still rock. And Slyboy really drives this point home with this track.

The most beneficial part to Slyboy‘s career as of right now is his ability to sustain the legwork and focus, be it songwriting, collaborations, promotion and anything DIY. It’s the type of work that has an immense payoff, and each track you hear from Slyboy‘s beginnings til now demonstrates that he gets better every time he hits the vocal booth. At the pace he’s going, Slyboy will be a pivotal and vital voice in Hip Hop before he knows it. He’s come a long way in a short time and has great promise lined up for his future prospects.
