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.

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.
