Lord Sonny The Unifer Delivers A Throwback 1970s Inspired Album Titled Final Notice

13 May

Lord Sonny The Unifer carries the tonality of the free spirit of the 1970s, grunge of the 90s, and easy listening of modern day music. Lead by musician Gregory Jiritano, the album cohesively shows a well thought out theme and mood. Listeners will recognize first and foremost their sound is unlike most bands you hear today. With experience in sound experimentation in their earlier works, the tracks are layered with the varieties of stylistic instruments that add an intentional dimension. The album Final Notice alludes to the final call and warning that we get in the mail for various things. It serves not only as a symbolic message, but a political one as well. Lyrics on the album vary from reflecting and storytelling all mixed in one. March Forth carries a lot of the grunge and electronic synth-powered sound that characterizes their music so distinctively. As for those wanting to listen to a band that carries connecting messages to their audience with heart, go ahead and give Lord Sonny The Unifer a listen.

This Beautiful Life Vol. 1 By Calvert Showcases Perfect Balance Between New Age Modern Music & Classical Music Undertones

11 May

When you start This Beautiful Life Vol. 1 in your headphones, you will immediately want to start humming along and dancing to the music that CALVERT creates. You will find familiarity in hearing a cover of Betty Who’s track Wanna Be in this album. From the synths that vibe throughout the whole EP and are reminiscent of Flo- Rida, Diplo, and many more in the EDM/DJ space, its quite clear that CALVERT is talented. The themes of the album include pushing through barriers and using strength as a superpower. He reflects as well on love, life, and loss. Listeners should not be surprised that his music has been showcased in Rent and Altar Boys. CALVERT’s voice sounds not only strong and well rounded, but it carries an empathetic quality that is infectious when you listen to his music. The album takes some twists and turns bringing in the sounds of the violin, unplanned piano melodies, and vocal runs that alot of talent lacks in the music space. CALVERT not only soars with this premiere album, but watch out for him in 2019, as I have a feeling he will not be unknown for much longer.
