Pop singer Lena Williams releases new single ‘Keep My Name Out Ya Mouth’

The pop singer known as Lena Williams has released her latest official single track, “Keep My Name Out Ya Mouth.” The single has been proudly published as an independent music release without the involvement or interference of the corporate music infrastructure. Catchy, direct, powerful, elegant and feminine, “Keep My Name Out Ya Mouth” is a track that introduces Lena Williams to her audience as all of these things and much, much more.

Music by Lena Williams has subtlety and charm which exudes strength and determination. Her tones are sultry and mellow without ever coming off as quiet or demure. The topics of her songs, songs such as “What U Mad For,” “On Another Planet” and “Touch My Body,” are sensual, autobiographical, and never delivered with a pulled punch. Fans of Williams love her for her earnest lyrics and classy manner of singing, as well as for some of the most well-produced back beats in hip hop anywhere.

South-Carolina born Lena Williams has been singing since she was able to talk. Her first formal music experiences came from practicing and performing with church choirs as soon as she was able. By the age of 10, she was writing her own music. Her first group was founded by Williams, herself. She called the group the Dope Girls. At merely 12 years old she was booked as the opening act for Tracy Morgan at McGuire AFB.

Willams began working with a local producer at the age of 20 but never did anything with these recordings beyond saving them for posterity. Her official ReverbNation bio states that “[Lena] believed God blessed with her with a talent and that she would one day make it … She met her boyfriend, now husband, Robert Williams when she was just 21 years old. She was so caught up in love with him that she no longer focused on music. They decided they wanted to move away from New Jersey and relocate to Maryland.”

In Maryland Williams describes life there as “perfect.” She had love and a solid, well-paying job, nice cars and a nice home. Nevertheless, her bio states that “Even though they had all of these things Lena was still very unhappy. She knew that music was her passion and she knew that their was more to her life then just working full time for a boss that she disliked. She performed at a few local bars but that was about it.”

A job opportunity arising from a promotion in 2013 allowed her to relocate to Atlanta, GA, however.

“She was ecstatic about moving to the area,” her bio explains, “because Georgia has had lots of successful artists and she felt she could be the next big thing. A year after relocating the company she worked for closed down and she was laid off. Instead of her stressing or being upset she looked at this sudden change as a positive opportunity. She believed that this was a sign from God to go after what she had always dreamed about. Lena is currently networking and working on music so you can expect lots of things from her very soon.”

Lena Williams fans, that time is now.

“Keep My Name Out Ya Mouth” by Lena Williams is available online worldwide beginning 4 January 2015. Don’t miss it.

Rapper Jagger Spacy releases official music video for hit single ‘Where’d You Go?’

The up-and-coming rapper and songwriter known as Jagger Spacy is releasing his biggest and most widely awaited official music video to date, “Where’d You Go?” The video is based on his runaway hit hip-hop / pop music single by the same name, which made headlines less than one month ago in the last quarter of 2014. Sonorous, heartfelt and extremely catchy, Spacy fans and new listeners alike felt that “Where’d You Go?” was sure to come packaged with an official music video – and Spacy wasn’t about to leave the music world hanging.

Hailing from the hip-hop hotbed of Arizona, which derives its characteristic sonic style from not only the ever-popular West Coast rap but also typically the “dirty” south sound and that of the founding capital of hip hop, New York City, Jagger Spacy’s voice and persona immediately recall those of Eminem. Spacy’s “Where’d You Go?” is both more personal and more accessible than much of the music of Marshall Mathers, however, and has been attracting listeners from nearly every music genre.

It should perhaps come as no surprise, therefore, that an accompanying music video for the young star’s most successful single should appear, and particularly since the artist’s main aim is to connect with his ever-growing audience.

“I hope that people will relate to my music and that they will be inspired,” said Jagger Spacy in a recent interview. “I hope it will show people that even though we deal with life challenges and struggles, we can get through it. Failure is key. I am just rebuilding what was broken.”

Listeners wishing to get a better introduction to the rapper and singer are encouraged to meet him through his online bio, available for viewing here: http://youtu.be/rCGoMrXoB9A. Watch for the official video for “Where’d You Go?” by Jagger Spacy to become available for viewing online everywhere soon.

The popular single that started it all, “Where’d You Go?” by Jagger Spacy, is already available online worldwide. Fans of rap, pop, and hip-hop music should get in early.

Judah Metaphysic XVI releases new LP ‘Tell Me Why’

The singer and songwriter of reggae music known as Judah Metaphysic XVI has released his latest LP record album, “Tell Me Why.” It contains 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes.The record has been proudly published on the Mind Music Production independent record label, entirely without financial or managerial support from the corporate music industry. Brimming with heart and soul, and pulsing with warmth, spirit and righteousness, “Tell Me Why” is a reggae record coming from the true roots of the traditional sound.

Judah Metaphysic XVI cites as main artistic influences such legends of the roots scene as Bagga Judah, Jackie Mittoo, Pablo Black, Bob Marley, Garnett Silk, and many more. He also considers musicians from other genres as important to his sonic creativity, musicians like John Lennon and the Beatles, Nat King Cole, Celine Dion and Julie Andrews. The upshot of all this music is that Judah Metaphysic XVI has a well-rounded, top-shelf style of reggae with a highly polished production and a raw, natural tone.

Speaking of the aims of his new record, Judah Metaphysic writes, “After many sessions of making feel-good music, we have created an album that we are proud to present to our listening audience and our ever-loyal fans. ‘Tell Me Why’ will capture your imagination and ears with rapture and rhapsody that will lift your spirit and warm your heart.”

Judah Metaphysic XVI was born in Kingston, Jamaica as the youngest of five children. His father having been killed as a result of political unrest, Judah was raised by his mother from a very young age.

“I was saddened and I felt helpless,” he writes of this. “But despite all the challenges that I faced, I always had a love for music.”

He found a broken guitar and glued it together. It had four strings. He took it to 12 Tribe Headquarters (of the Rastafari movement) where it was tuned by Bagga Judah himself.

“I started to rehearse with Sangi Davis and Nipty Napty,” writes the singer. “I began to hone my singing skills with the 12-Tribe band. Rehearsal was moved to Bob Marley’s home. After several rehearsals Bob Marley identified me as being ready for the 12 Tribe Show.

Judah came to California on tour with the band in 1982.

“I decided to settle down in the United States and to start a family. In 1984 I started to perform with the Jubenites group of the 12 Tribes. Many reggae shows took place with this group. I performed with several musicians namely: Sister Carol, Ninja Man, Dennis Brown, Freddie McGregor, and many other local artists. I also performed alongside the Steel Pulse band and Visionaire.”

Judah’s life has been based and founded on music, particularly in the form of roots reggae.

“I always hear a song in just about everything I do. Without music I could not survive. I can distinctly remember all the song that healed me when I was in a moment of mental anguish.”

The following is taken directly from Judah Metaphysic XVI, himself.
“Music is the very essence that builds me up. I can hear the sound of music vibrating in my head. I often vibrate these rhythms in my music like that of a mocking bird making musical beats. Writing and singing music is like indulging in a cooking exercise. I used this metaphor of someone cooking a special dish because one has to put in special ingredient to bring out a special flavor.

“Music is a life force. The very tone of the music is life. The message of my music is for my fans to embrace the love of all human beings. They should cast away all fear, keeping in mind the adage: why gain the world and lose your soul? Realize that there will always be a brighter day. My hope is that peace and forgiveness will preside. Stop pointing your fingers to lay the blame on others and look into yourself and behold the inner beauty of your courage and forthrightness. One Love and Jah Bless.”

“Tell Me Why” by Judah Metaphysic XVI is available online worldwide.

It has been proudly published on the Raised Records independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Booming, grooving, and spirit-filled from its core to its overflowing brim, “From Alpha to Omega” is easily one of the best hip-hop records to ever be released with a gospel message.

Daddy Abe cites as main artistic influences Mos Def, Black Twang, Jurassic 5, Klashnekoff, Phi Life Cypher, Talib Kweli, and Damian Marley. His sound and style lean heavily on razor-sharp rhymes and lines, but benefit much from bass-heavy beats and loops which recall the old-school rap artists but also blaze new trails in significant ways. “From Alpha to Omega” by Daddy Abe blends hip hop, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall and gospel music so seamlessly that it’s suddenly surprising a record like this has never been made before.

Also notable are the other talents featured on Daddy Abe’s “From Alpha…” record. These include St. Matthew (of Jamaica) Simon Dan (Nucleus Roots Crew) Testament AKA Homecut, Jonny Alpha (Knew Jeru’slum) Khazown and Saint (of RepEntertainment) Danny Gough, and turntables by DJ Leach.

Asked to comment on the themes of his new record, Daddy Abe writes that “God’s love is unconditional. Everybody has an opportunity to walk in the blessing. It’s not based on your ability or how good you are. Righteousness is a gift. Miracles are for today. Heaven can be here and now. Religion is dead. Jesus is alive!”

Daddy Abe is a UK rapper based in Leeds. He has been an active performer since the turn of the millennium. Select singles from his “From Alpha to Omega” debut record have been played on BBC Radio and by DJ Disorder on Suspect Packages Radio.

Sund’ri Feeling release new LP ‘Accords’

The duo of poetic jazz and groove music known as Sund’ri Feeling have released their latest LP record, “Accords.” It contains 14 original tracks for a total listening time approaching a full hour. The album has been proudly published on the Artiste de Ma Vie independent record label, entirely without financial or managerial support from the corporate music industry. Suave, classy, and full of the spirit of cool jazz, “Accords” by Sund’ri Feeling is an uplifting and exotic jazz record that will appeal to audiophiles everywhere.

Sund’ri Feeling cite as main artistic influences Ella Fitzgerald, Rachel Ferrell, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Billie Holiday, Marilyn Monroe, and more, from whom their own elegant singing style has taken its powerful yet delicate shape. Hence, a great many qualities are shared between these leading ladies and the vocals of “Accords.”

In terms of composition and instrumentation, they name a broadly various group which includes (among a great many others) Chopin and Rachmaninov, Miles Davis and Jaco Pastorius, Chucho Valdés and Chick Corea. Their music is a flowing, colorful blend of cool jazz, Cuban jazz and Brazilian jazz with subtle flourishes which recall the Paris of the 1940s and ’50s.

Speaking of the themes of their new album, Sund’ri Feeling write, “’Accords’ is about Love, our love for life, traveling, heart-full experiences and the transcendence of everyday feelings. It is an anthem to beauty, peace and freedom. 
Melodies full of lyricism, rich harmonies, dancing rhythms, improvisation and poetic lyrics serve our vision.”

Sund’ri Feeling is a duo consisting of singer Cendrine Cingala and multi-instrumentalist Richard Layan. Hailing from the French-speaking isle of Réunion, 680 km southeast of the African island of Madagascar, these music makers bring their joie de vivre into focus with danceable, highly textured jazz that begs for the lights to be turned low.

Cendrine Cingala began singing before she could walk. Sund’ri Feeling explain that she learned to do it while sitting on the bar in her father’s club.

“All sorts of funky, groove, ethnic and dance music styles nurtured her imagination as she started dreaming of singing and dancing one day,” they write. “One of her sweetest childhood memories is of singing and improvising on various music styles, with her Dad playing the guitar. Her dream to sing has come true, and it’s only the beginning!”

Richard Layan had a more traditional background, being classically schooled at music theory and piano from the age of four to 19. Having picked up guitar along the way at 11, he quickly found interest in jazz and improvisational music.

“Classical music and jazz were the music styles my family used to listen every day,” Layan writes. “I was that lucky boy! I played (and continue playing) many instruments (strings, horns and percussion) in many styles, like rock, pop, country, bluegrass, reggae, jazz fusion, jazz, música popular brasileira, música cubana, Indian Ocean music, creole music …”

Layan has been educated in music at the master level in France, Brazil, Cuba, and Reunion island with several well-known artists and improvisers.

“I had the chance to live in Brazil for a couple of years,” Layan writes, “and learned a lot about music there. Now I live on Reunion Island, where the local music is in strong expansion, mixing traditional rhythms and instruments with external influences from the whole world, and I’m proud to be a part of it!”

“Accords” by Sund’ri Feeling is available online worldwide. Get in early.

Opinash releases new single ‘Basic Instinct’

The digital music artist known as Opinash has released his new single track, “Basic Instinct.” The single has been published as an independent release outside the sphere of control of the corporate music industry. It is the latest part of a series of singles from the artist which have appeared in 2014, including such popular tracks as “Liquid,” “Shine,” “People Having,” and “Over the Horizon.” Glossy, melodic and elegant, pulsing, booming and energizing, “Basic Instinct” by Opinash is a digital anthem for fans of every music genre.

Opinash cites as main artistic influences such icons and legends of electronica as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Jean Michel Jarre, AWeX, Tom Wax, Jeff Mills, and Laid Back. While inspirations such as these do point to certain attributes of an artist in general, these musicians mean much more to Opinash’s music in particular. His undertones have much in common with Depeche Mode, while his mode of music writing brings together the uplifting, colorful melodies of Kraftwerk and the epic, wordless narratives of Jean Michel Jarre. The result is a refreshingly unique amalgam that demands dancing and effectively works also as music for the casual listener.

Opinash, who was born and raised in Denmark, has been writing and producing music since the 1980s. He cut his teeth in the world of digital music on the popular FastTracker program for composing songs,

which is largely responsible for the rise of Europe’s demoscene and helped to shape the future of electronica and house music around the world. Opinash’s first globally distributed independent single, “Rhea,” was released in May of 2012. The entire library of his work since that time is available for sampling from his official site (link provided below) and for purchase at iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and everywhere else great music is sold.

“Basic Instinct” by Opinash is available now.

Soundwave releases new single ‘9 Lives’

The singer and songwriter of contemporary rhythm ‘n’ blues known as Soundwave has released his latest single track, “9 Lives.” The song has been proudly published on the Emmaculate Entertainment independent music label without interference or financial support from the corporate music industry. Slick, smooth, and endlessly stylish, “9 Lives” stands as proof that Soundwave has a niche carved out for him in today’s thriving R-‘n’-B underground music scene.

Soundwave cites as main artistic influences such staple legends of the genre as Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Usher, and K-Ci and JoJo. Outside the R-‘n’-B category, he makes mention of Common, the Roots, Flyleaf, Childish Gambino, Blackstar, Switchfoot, and Linkin Park.

From this varied list of favorites, Soundwave’s music is most similar to the songwriting of Boyz II Men and K-Ci and JoJo, yet still his own style and tone are too fresh and new for such comparisons to be significant. His vocals on ‘9 Lives’ are the main attraction, though clever lyrics and an unstoppably classy keyboard accompaniment round out the song’s mood, the entire track being founded on a heart-thumping back beat which provides deep and satisfying groove.

Speaking of his start in music, Soundwave writes, “Growing up, church was every Sunday and Wednesday night for me. I was naturally drawn to the choir. It was to hard to sit and watch. In high school I was in choir, and after graduation everything changed when I was introduced to music by Blackstar. My friends and I really got into beats and the culture. I’ve been lost in hip-hop ever since and don’t plan on finding a way out anytime soon.”

Soundwave’s aforementioned lyrical prowess means that his songs are infused with urban poetry. Each line is deliberate and finely crafted.

Asked to comment on the themes explored in “9 Lives,” Soundwave writes, “Mostly I want people to understand who I am and where I’ve been. This song and the others on the EP ‘Exist 60’ deal with separation from love, finding the strength to move on, and also embracing your past.”

“9 Lives” by Soundwave is available online worldwide.
