Marc Scibilia

Marc Scibilia Summer Clothes

Marc Scibilia grew up in the cold backwater of Buffalo, New York. His family were music makers, including his dad. Marc’s new song is informed by his past life in Buffalo, with a special nod to his dad, Bob, whom I know personally. Indeed, the picture for the new Marc Scibilia single is a picture of Bob and his son from long ago. Marc couldn’t wait to skip town when…

Dance to Speed of Life by Sweden’s Aditone

I thought Aditone sounded good before, on his track “Dynasty” a few months back, but now he’s returned to the recording studio to unleash a new song called “Speed of Life,” and he sounds better than ever! “Speed of Life” sounds like something that’s immediately radio ready. It’s upbeat, with a danceable beat, positive lyrics, and electronic influences that will get your feet moving and your shoulders groovin’. The song…

Bleeding Obvious offers best album of 2016

The Bleeding Obvious reminds me of a very creative person being unleashed on a computer complete with a multitude of instruments around her and a lifetime of interesting influences. Indeed, The Bleeding Obvious is the musical project debut of music maker Jess Rowbottom from the UK. A onetime Wakefield Cathedral chorister, Rowbottom decided to record the new album thanks to personal life changes in recent years. While I’m not sure what…

Aditone is a dynamic artist with Dynasty

Aditone is a dynamic music artist from Sweden. One listen to his song “Dynasty” and you’ll feel like you’ve been in the presence of musical greatness. It’s no wonder, then, that he counts Michael Jackson as an influence. His over-the-top sound and passion for what he does reminds me of MJ. Aditone has been passionate about writing music for his entire life. Even as a little kid, at the age…

House music returns thanks to MECH

I loved the early 1990s for songs like Deee-Lite’s “Groove Is In The Heart” and Londonbeat’s “I’ve Been Thinking About You.” Robert Mech, aka MECH, is bringing that early 1990s house music sound back thanks to his songs like “Night Driver” with its drum machine beat, funky horns and repetitive (read: catchy) 4/4 beat you can dance to. You want to boogie? Then you need to give MECH’s music a listen…

EARL: Existence After Real Love

Remember that TV show named My Name Is Earl? You don’t meet too many people with that name these days. That said, there’s a new music maker on the scene calling himself EARL, which stands for Existence After Real Love. For the record, he is actually Christopher Earl Mathewson, but it’s just easier to call him that one simple four letter name, right? EARL taught himself how to write, produce, record…

Are you ready for I Am Ready by Amir Higher

Are you ready for the song “I Am Ready?” It’s a dance smash from Amir Higher that is the kind of song athletes will use before competition, actors will use before they go on stage, and anyone who needs to pump themselves up for their big moment will appreciate. The music video for “I Am Ready” features Amir dressed in a stylish white tuxedo, playing the piano. What I especially…

Sofasound remixes Justin Bieber

Sofasound (aka John Sofia) is an EDM/hip hop producer who has done something impressive: made quite the remix of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” It’s available for free as a download from Sofasound’s Soundcloud: Sofasound is “undefined by genre,” though he tends to remix R&B and rap hits from his studio in Florida. His credits include several artists, including Mistah F.A.B , Emoney, Obvi, Trizz, R-Mean, HBK CJ, Rey Res, and…

Soul R&B singer Rob Hewz

Rob Hewz just got done performing at the Unity1 Summer Music Festival at Pierce Park in downtown Ennis, Texas, where the crowd loved him. He has a natural charisma and music in his bones. Born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas as Robert Hughes, he began performing at age 9. Keeping it interesting, his stage name became Rob Hewz, which definitely sounds and looks more like a performer’s name than “Robert Hughes,” which…

Jack Rose offers Pretty Pictures

Wait a minute…Jack Rose is just 14-years-old? His polished sound on the catchy song “Pretty Pictures” had me thinking he was in his 20s or 30s because he sounds so professional and, well, mature– in a great way. It turns out that Jack Rose wears many hats at a young age. Besides being a talented singer and songwriter, he’s also a rapper, actor and radio presenter. Jack Rose is originally from…

The Sound of Tom Raistrick

Tom Raistrick, a new artist from Oxford, UK, creates the kind of sonic soundscapes you listen to when you want to be enveloped by the music. Raistrick makes intoxicating indie electronic music, which sounds experimental and mellow at times. Tom Raistrick’s EP, The Brutal Simplicity of Sound, features six songs including “A Sail to Catch the Wind” and “Lost Soul.” I like how it starts with a song called “Sunset”…

Mariah, Christina, and P!nk: make way for LaMenga. From Alabama to the world, this lady, who got her start singing in a church choir, is ready to sing and make people feel it! LaMenga Kafi has a hot new single out called “Need Love” that’s a tasty combination of disco, funk and dance. If you like Maxine Jones’ voice from En Vogue, as well as other smoky-voiced singers like Donna…
