Music artist Jassniro releases new single ‘I Made It for You (I Love You)’ feat. Chelle

The artist of R&B, downtempo and chill-out music known as Jassniro has released his latest single, “I Made It for You (I Love You).” The single has been concurrently released with an official music video [link provided below]. “I Made It for You (I Love You)” has been proudly published outside the control of the corporate music industry on the Catapult independent music label. Mellow, classy, stylish and full of groove, “I Made It for You (I Love You)” by Jassniro is a track fans of strong beats and gliding melodies will appreciate.

Additionally, “I Made It for You…” features a stunning performance by singer Chelle.

Italian composer Jassniro cites as main artistic influences groups known for originality and intuitive playing, such as Shakatak, Shalamar, Gap Band, Midnight Stars, One Way, Cameo, the Chic, Otis Redding, the Vandellas, Sam & Dave, the Jackson Five, and Kool & the Gang. He also mentions in particular, “good, chill out lounge, like the ‘Cafe Del Mar’ collection, alongside some nice Afro-beat by Fela Anikulapo Kuti and various African musicians both traditional and modern.”

Speaking of the themes of his new single, Jassniro writes, “The basic inspiration of the song stems from the lack of communication that is quite common nowadays in relationships and in the passions of love. The song is about that particular push and motivation that all true lovers find in order to step forward and overcome moments of crisis by inverting all the phases of negativity in love and changing them into a more positive attitude toward the partner.”

This is inherent in the lyric, “Anytime I tried to understand things, I made it for you,” which Jassniro says summarizes the song’s inspiration.

“It demonstrates the positive qualities that unfold each time we try to keep the relationship alive,” the artist writes, “by maintaining the thin thread of connection, like on a razor’s edge, practicing virtues such as tolerance, understanding, sensitivity, and generosity to others.”

Jassniro began his music career in 1990 playing keyboard for the popular Afro-ethnic band, Kilimandjaro. He was lauded for his work with the Afro-Cuban band Shalana, and later was among the finalists in the Los Angeles Indie Music Channel’s competition with “It’s time for love,” and again in 2013 with “I’m Feeling Strange.” Jassniro is the winner of the Akademia Music Awards for June 2015 and March 2016 with his “I Love You” single and “Summer Is Over” spoken-word track.

He has performed in Rome, Perugia, Siena, Iesi, Cagliari, Pescara, Ancona, Melfi, and Cosenza, among other locales. He currently lives in Rome.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life,” writes Jassniro. “Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company – a church – a home. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.”

“I Made It for You (I Love You)” by Jassniro is available online worldwide.

Rap artist Chris Hosford Jr. releases ‘Battling My Demons’ single

The music artist and producer known as Chris Hosford Jr. has released his latest hip hop single, “Battling My Demons.” The track has been proudly published as an independent release without the support or direction of the corporate music industry. It is the most prominent official release from Hosford to date and bears the distinction of being the final vocal recording of Chris Hosford Jr. in the arena of hip hop. Built on beats, vivid imagery and evocative lines and rhymes, “Battling My Demons” is evidence that Chris Hosford Jr. is a name to watch regardless of which genre he’s in.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Hosford Jr. quips only, “Life experiences.” As it turns out, the autobiographical component of Hosford’s rap lyrics is an important one, and especially where his new “Battling My Demons” single is concerned.

“This is my last hip hop song I will ever record lyrics on,” writes the artist. “I loved being a part of the music and indulging myself in the lyrics and performance and recording. It was fun.”

Chris Hosford Jr. spent years recording local artists for free to cut his teeth at music production, and spent years more graduating from Full Sail University with a bachelor of science in music production, followed by a master of science in entertainment business. After all this education and hands-on experience in music, Hosford’s “Battling My Demons” has resulted.

“The song talks about how the hip hop industry affected me personally,” Hosford writes. “It pretty much gave me a false perception of what actually goes on in the industry. Goodbye, hip hop.”

Hosford grew up in southern New Jersey and has been making music since the age of 16. His father taught him how percussion rhythms are “driven by soul,” an audible element in “Battling My Demons.” He moved on to beatboxing and achieved some local popularity for his homegrown skills. He then began writing and performing rap. By 2006 he had started recording with a 16-track digital recorder and microphone his mother had given him for Christmas. Eight years later, he’s still laying down fresh takes and mixing original music.

His current official bio says of his current pursuits: “Since graduation with his masters degree, Chris has been slowly planning out strategic ways to release records. All of this takes financial backing, so he has been hard at work saving money to fund his dreams and doesn’t show any sign of stopping.”

Hosford had this to say to his fans on the occasion of his “Battling My Demons” release – “Stay tuned for my new releases, which will not be in the hip hop genre.”

“Battling My Demons” by Chris Hosford Jr. is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide.
