Pete McCabe releases new LP ‘Homeward’

The singer and songwriter known as Pete McCabe has released his latest LP record, “Homeward.” The full-length album comprises 14 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of nearly an hour. It has been published on the LazyCats Records music label. Usually filed in the folk and contemporary folk music sections of digital and vinyl record stores, “Homeward” is a monument to McCabe’s sonic and lyric ingenuity, and solidifies his place in the chronicles of American songwriting as a whole.

 

Pete McCabe first took this place with the release of his 1973 record, “The Man Who Ate the Plant,” produced by the legendary Bill Szymczyk who later produced the Eagles and other titans. The LP has become known among audiophiles everywhere for its unabashed blend of pop and folk music sharpened with tinges of psychedelic rock.

 

“The orchestral arrangements from that record are echoed in my current music,” McCabe writes.

 

And indeed they are. Fans of folk music will find all their time-honored traditions intact on “Homeward,” but scaled up to include sweeping instrumental rises and soaring, multi-tiered harmonies. Inspirations from a great many musical subcultures are present, giving the album a swirling myriad of colors which easily arrest and mystify the listener. The source of this variety is McCabe’s own mixing bowl of influences.

 

“My folk background included influences from singer-songwriters Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor,” he writes. “Along the way there was a bit of Dixieland and jazz. My greatest influence was the Beatles. More recent influences include Randy Newman and Stephen Sondheim.”

 

Fans of lyric precision and creativity are likely to be especially pleased.

 

“Many of my lyrics are informed by my lifelong obsession with movies. My overriding desire is to offer words and music that are truly original.”

 

Asked to describe the general themes and messages of his new album, McCabe describes it thus:

“Each song is a world to explore. Each has its own style and personality, yet as a whole the collection is unified by a strong point of view. A sense of humor as well as a sensitive look at human relationships and a fondness for fantasy and dreams inform the lyrics. I want the listener to look at the world in a new way. There are meanings and emotions to be found in ourselves that different genres of music and unusual lyrics can awaken. Good old songwriting craft can still transport us beyond what so much of the marketplace offers these days.”

 

“Homeward” by Pete McCabe is available online worldwide. Get in early. Get in as soon as possible.

Rapper 2FiC releases new single ‘Live For The Night’

The rapper, songwriter and music producer known as 2FiC has released his latest single, “Live for the Night.” The track has been published on the Diamond Music Entertainment LLC music label. Part hip-hop, part house music and all fun, “Live for the Night” stands as proof that 2FiC has plenty of talent to bring listeners around the world.

 

2FiC cites as main artistic influences Jay Z, Ryan Leslie, Pharrell Williams, Neato C, J. Cole, Drake, Snoop Lion, Bob Marley, and others. “The list goes on and on,” writes the rapper, whose music talents match and even exceed his remarkable passion for the art. “I grew up around musicians and creating music sparked my interest. I think making music is amazing and I love it.”

 

2FiC is the professional stage name of Toufic Nicholas, originally hailing from Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa. Sierra Leone is one of Africa’s smallest nations, known primarily for their trade in diamonds and for their destructive, ten-year civil war which was largely funded by them. It was this war which lead 2FiC to seek refuge in Ghana in 1997, and to ultimately come to the United States in 2004.

 

2FiC founded Diamond Music Entertainment LLC in 2012 and released his debut mixtape, “The Diamond Dealer,” in 2013 to widespread acclaim. Circulated rumors regarding an EP album in the works suggest that it would contain music from diverse genres, including reggae, pop, R ‘n’ B, hip hop, and Sierra Leonean hip hop.

 

“I love and admire the art of composing music from scratch” 2FiC writes. “My goal is to get exposed globally, as an artist. I feel that I can put Diamond Music Entertainment on the map if I make it, and the whole world will know us, and our stories.”

 

Asked to describe the theme of his new single, “Live for the Night,” 2FiC replies, “To stay positive, work hard and believe in yourself. I want people to understand that they can live life to the fullest no matter what the circumstances are. Never give up.”

 

“Live for the Night” by 2FiC is available online worldwide.
