Aya Maguire Enchants With Powerful Voice & Heartbreak Timeline On Album The Sandcastle King

26 May

Aya Maguire enchants listeners with a powerful voice on her album The Sandcastle King. Words cannot even describe her exact sound. When listening, one can find similarities with Copeland and Fleetwood Mac. From the poignant lyrics and descriptive visual metaphors, Maguire makes her voice into a storytelling instrument. Her storytelling talents are just as powerful as the acoustic guitar that hums in the background of her music. Sharing her music at first in Portland and Seattle, she then drew on the influences of folk and reflections and channeled that into her overall sound. The album exemplifies the waves of heartbreak, unrequited love, growth, and shows how one turns struggles into strengthened victories. Quoting Maguire directly, she explains that “not everything one feels can become good music, honest emotion is just one necessary component”. By mixing in authentic reflecting and a powerful voice, she makes a statement on the album The Sandcastle King that announces she has arrived for listeners to hear her stories.

25 Aug

With the debut release from the Collegians, their single Vaccine delivers deep emotion and raw rock through and through.  The undertone of lyrics are beautifully dark with phrases such as “are you just another weakness in me?”, and “now you are my vaccine, when I’m succumbing” paint a strong picture. The unique sound of the band keeps listeners hooked as you hear the strong vocals of Glenn Patrick and Gerry Leigh and instruments all working in unison together forming an unique aesthetic sound. Comparable to the sounds of the great rock greats such as Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Copeland to name a few, listeners should be excited for what will be coming in the future for Collegians and what they will deliver to their audiences.

Bonomo Impresses With Evolved Folk Sound In Newest Album Phases

25 Feb

Take a step into serenity mixed with melancholic happiness when you take a listen to Bonomo. Phases characterizes an individual’s journey and meaning of home, memories, and self. Comparing to the lovely sounds of Copeland and Iron & Wine, Bonomo crafts an exemplary sound within his album that’s on the path of evolving, filled with humility and authenticity. The duo characterizes alternative folk with a new sound in the album Phases. Their lead single Water, really shows this unique sound by the effective uses of the variety of instruments in their sound. Think Devendra Banhart meets John Mayer and you have Bonomo. Although two different genres, a mix of such sounds proves auditory greatness.

Temporary Hero Idolizes One Of The Greats In Newest Album, Tusk

In a complete artistic transformation, Temporary Hero evolves in a new way with his newest project Tusk. Compared to his acclaimed CHET, Tusk shows that Jonah Bell has a wide musical range. A complete modernization of Fleetwood Mac’s songs off the album Tusk form a linking connection with the past and present. Dubbed an “artist’s artist”, it’s clearly apparent to listeners that Jonah makes his music from the heart with heavy soul undertones. In regards to his voice style, listeners will find that it reminds them of Copeland’s Aaron Marsh, with the steady harmonies and sophisticated vocals. Jonah Bell has a way of taking his affinities for certain artists and spinning it in not only an appreciation piece, but an extension of his musical range. While the Tusk project only covers half of the original Fleetwood Mac album, Jonah Bell has brought a merging of the past and future, and hopefully a renewed interest in one of the greats in music.
