D.G. Adams gives us a hint as to what is coming up with his album Nexxt with his latest single Dangerous. While he is not in the throws of Shakespearian words on stage, he is coming up with deep music. Adams’ history had him rooted in acting and then it has evolved into full time musician, kicking it off back in 2011 with the nudging of best friend Torquil Campbell. The standout lyrics from this single are “so pray and shout, but don’t you forget to cast the devil out”. It plays with the symbolism of religion, but packs a heavy punch in the aspect of understanding and relating to the world around us. Instrumentally, the rhythm guitar adds atmosphere to the song and provides this rock, yet folk vibe. In the unusual time that we are living in, the lyrics fit what a lot of people are probably experiencing and mulling over in their minds. By combining the aspects of warning and optimism, D.G. Adams has listeners intrigued and wanting more.

Overnight Flight From Todd Warner Moore Shines Light In Latest Album

5 May

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Todd Warner Moore shines light through his voice on his album Overnight Flight and entrances his listeners along the way. Composing several different types of genre of music over the course of his career adds to the variety and flexibility as an artist. He has performed in bands such as Acoustic Juice and Tea-Thieves. Overall his music has an other world sound, further alluding that his exposure to international music has aided in the well rounded sound he has within his musical pieces. While the majority of his music is acoustic based, with his voice and accompanying arrangements, it does not detract from what he has created. By hyper focusing in on a characteristic sound and composition, Moore deliberately has carved himself in his own niche. Some standout tracks on Overnight Flight include Mistakes with lyrics reflecting on life and the challenges that present themselves. He sings about from almost the soul’s perspective on things alongside generalizations about the experiences as well. Another beautiful song includes Rite of Rain which opens with all instrumentals and sounds like a mesh between classic symphonies and naturescape music. It literally sounds like the music you would play while running in the forest or sitting on a boardwalk.

As A Bird of The Air Carries Andrew Reed Into The Energy Of The Rock Music Limelight

28 Apr

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Andrew Reed brings a realm of light and consciousness in his album in the first track and then it goes in a direction that exemplifies nothing short of the high energy that classic rock is known to deliver. A rock fueled track includes Strangers with that 80s/90s instrumentals that doesn’t fall short of anything less than great. A close second is the song Escape on the album with lyrics like “you seem so restless, I’ve got no reservations about you” and the music arrangement of this song just makes me think of the band Aha! and the elements of glam, strength, and magic. An interesting fact about Reed is that he spent more than a year from social media and music in preparation to create this album. Doing so, when you take a listen, while it has nostalgic elements of the 80s and 90s music within the rock world, it does have a sense of uniqueness that is intertwined throughout the songs that incrementally get better and better as you listen. Artistically, all of the songs were all recorded with saturating analog tape which ran 3x normal speed, thus giving them an intentional sonic and power ballad feel. With enlightenment and transformation themes at play here, Reed creates something so magical you can’t quite put a name on the one thing that hooks you in, eager to want more.

Ghost Showcases A Power Punch In Its Debut By Fervence

28 Apr

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ghost by Fervence catapults yourself in the progressive rock world right when the album begins. With heavy synthesized instrumentals and reverbs throughout, this album brings a lot as a debut from Fervence. The 7 song tracklist goes into everything from the duality of life to aspects of a struggling soul. A standout track from the list includes The Silent Wall as its completely different from all of the other songs on the list. It starts out with an instrumental piano track and has lyrics “can I still be here if I’ve gone away, now we are in this place come and fly, always”? The instrumental intro sounds similar to church hymns and then it zooms off to a heavier tone with drums and guitar in the background. The vocals of this song go back and forth between being in the forefront of the song arrangement to the back, with the sound of Austin Bentley’s voice echoing in the background. Not only does this create a new depth of auditory atmosphere for listeners, but it also makes listeners curious as to what will happen next musically. If you are wanting to add some variety to your playlist during this weird state of the world, put on Ghost and get taken to the world Fervence has created.
