QueenLEFT releases new EP album ‘Queenz Reign’


KINGSTON, Jamaica, 2019-Jul-27 — /EPR Network/ —

The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as QueenLEFT has released her latest official EP album, “Queenz Reign.” The EP album contains five original QueenLEFT tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 mins. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Direct, heavy-hitting, and one-hundred-percent genuine, “Queenz Reign” showcases QueenLEFT as one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of the year so far and promises that she has plenty more where that came from.

Rochester, NY’s QueenLEFT cites as main artistic influences Erykah Badu, Michael and Janet Jackson, but mostly Tupac Shakur and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (TLC). QueenLEFT’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on gritty storytelling, old-school styled back beats, and seemingly unlimited amounts of personality, “Queenz Reign” by QueenLEFT has a little something for every fan of rap and hip hop.

QueenLEFT has been described as “an artist who not only wants to change the music scene with her authenticity but also change the game by bringing value and purpose in her craft of rap and singing.”

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Queenz Reign,” QueenLEFT writes that it is “To recognize your power and stand in it confidently.”

The music of QueenLEFT is particularly rooted in a blend of the visions of Tupac Shakur and TLC’s Left Eye.

“She’d seen not only could she relate to these two musical geniuses on a personal level,” says a QueenLEFT representative, “but also the subject matter and socially conscious vision they held in their music and spoke publicly of. Being engaged in that, queen realized her purpose in life was not just to emulate the music of her idols but to also incorporate her own style, innovative lyrics and music.”

Queenz Reign” is produced by Troy “GhostWridah” Jeffery of Rebellion Records and executive produced by Troy “GhostWridah” Jeffery of Rebellion Records and Charles Kendrick of Slant Entertainment LLC.

“Queenz Reign” by QueenLEFT is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans.

Dojo Man releases new single ‘Listen’

The songwriter and producer of ambient chillout music known as Dojo Man has released his latest official single, “Listen.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release on the Black Santa Records music label. Smooth, futuristic, and palpably atmospheric, “Listen” showcases Dojo Man as one of the most intriguing ambient chillout artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Asked to comment on his main artistic influences, London’s Dojo Man (often stylized ‘dōjō man’) writes, “I’ve always had a thing for ambient chillout, especially after a trip to Ibiza, to the old Cafe del Mar. The whole sunset vibe really got to me. They’re great sounds for the day after a rave! When I make a track, I always put myself back in that position.”

Dojo Man’s sound marries these experiences – 1am at a roaring dance party, 1pm on the following day, the soothing colors of sunup and sundown at the beach – for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on silkily blended tones, variously textured chord progressions and a conjured nexus of well-being, “Listen” by Dojo Man has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “Listen,” Dojo Man writes: “Who is the voice, is it a robot? A supernatural being? I don’t know, but these are the sounds it’s making. Let it mesmerize you. Clear your thoughts. Listen!”

Dojo Man has performed as a DJ for more than 15 years in the UK underground at famous (now sadly defunct) clubs such as Turnmills, SE1, and Canvas. He has residencies at popular events including the Back of Beyond festival and The Doghouse alongside artists such as Groove Armada, Jonathan Ulysses and 2 Bad Mice. When not creating chilled ambient as Dojo Man, he composes techno as Fresh by 6. Dojo Man/Fresh by 6 also has previous official releases under the BYBL Records and Dance Concept Recordings music labels.

I feel there is a new tone and depth in my music on these, so I really wanted to share them with my fans and the world as a short album. On every song I am hoping to take you on a journey, whether intense, exciting, hopeful or melancholic. I hope you enjoy.”

Music Supervisor of “The Theory of Everything,” Sarah Bridge, writes, “Icelandic composers & musicians have mastered the fusion of classical & popular music & Biggi Hilmars is no exception.

Justified and Fathers In Hip Hop release new single ‘Jehovah’

The songwriters and producers of hip hop known as Justified and Fathers In Hip Hop have released their latest official single, “Jehovah.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Uplifting, empowering, and specifically written to encourage the millions of struggling people today, Justified’s “Jehovah” comes out of the gate as one of the most important hip-hop singles of 2019 so far and promises that Justified is just getting started.

The California High Desert’s Justified Smith cites as main artistic influences two of the most legendary rap artists of the 1990s, Tupac Shakur and NWA’s Ice Cube. Justified’s own sound takes elements from both of these and adds his own pertinent message with an aggressively intelligent style for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before.

Speaking of that message, Justified writes, “This single expresses thanks and gives praise to Jehovah for bringing us through all our trials and tribulations, and the power of when Test Became Testimony.”

With an emphasis on social awareness, clever lines and rhymes, and unstoppable back beats, “Jehovah” by Justified has a little something for everybody.

Justified Smith has been long known in the High Desert as a popular recording artist and community “raptivist.” Today, his most prominent work is in the area of parental encouragement, particularly in the case of young fathers. Joining him on this song is Rhyme Rocca Recording Artist Nephew Michael from Lynwood who performs with Justified and Fathers In Hip Hop often. Together, they write, record and perform as Fathers In Hip Hop.

The current official bio of Fathers In Hip Hop describes them as taking “an intimate and up-close look into the testimony of various influential hip-hop artists with regards to their experiences and definitions of fatherhood.”

Too often,” writes Justified, “these types of artists are categorized as dead-beat dads and judged by their genre of music instead of who they are as fathers. FIHH covers testimonies of men discussing fatherhood from a variety of angles, exploring resources and introducing tips to better aid men in raising their children.”

These resources and tips include financial planning, such as how to obtain affordable life insurance, as well as other means of providing security for their children’s future.

“FIHH brings awareness to the importance of being an active father in a child’s life regardless of the circumstances,” Justified says. “FIHH will expose the effects that carry over into adulthood stemming from the absence of a father figure. Fathers In Hip Hop is impacting fatherhood engagement around the world!”

Stephen James Country releases new single ‘No Gas Needed’

The songwriter and producer of rock and country music known as Stephen James Country has released his latest official single, “No Gas Needed.” The AC/DC-inspired single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Classic, yet futuristic, and absolutely 100% charged, “No Gas Needed” showcases Stephen James Country as one of the most intriguing rock and country music artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Stephen James Country cites as main artistic influences Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Blake Shelton, Alan Jackson, and of course, AC/DC. Stephen James Country’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds contemporary Nashville octane for a result which is both danceable and driveable. With an emphasis on gnarled vocals, blues-rock riffs and modern country-music power, “No Gas Needed” by Stephen James Country has a little something for every fan of rock, country, or even just Tesla engineering.

Speaking of the overall meaning of “No Gas Needed,” Stephen James Country writes, “The song was inspired after my fiancé and I both purchased Tesla Model-S vehicles. The enjoyment from driving the Model S has been unparalleled from past driving experiences. The acceleration and quick response times of the Tesla are like a carnival ride of fun. If you are a Tesla owner or are going to be, you need to listen to this song.”

As might be gleaned from his stage name, Stephen James Country only infrequently records rock music like “No Gas Needed.” Sussing out the source of his desire to make a rock homage isn’t all that hard, though.

My Tesla inspired me to write ‘No Gas Needed’ in a rock style,” says Country. “The band AC/DC not only fit the look and feeling one gets from driving a Tesla, but it’s also apropos for the charging and discharging of the Tesla’s power transfer systems.”

Also notable is Country’s goals for the track. He aims high, but at the top of the corporate ladder rather than at the top of the chart.

My hopes for this song is that it will be heard and embraced by Elon Musk himself, so I can thank him personally for the sacrifice and endurance he exhibited to get this type of vehicle into the hands of the public. Thank you, Elon, for inspiring the whole world to dream big and use renewable energy. Tweet me anytime @CountryStephen. Cheers.”

Stephen Easterly (AKA Stephen James Country) has been playing and writing music since 1983. His most recent country album, “Inspired,” was released in 2018. Stephen prefers to stay at home rather than tour and writes music at his home in the Bay Area of California. He records in Nashville, TN while visiting his sons, Chad and Chase Easterly, who live nearby.

Newfoundland, Canada’s Bernie Leroux cites as main artistic influences John Prine, Kris Kristoffersen, Carlos Santana, and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. Leroux’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds a strong undercurrent of intimacy and earnestness for a rare and moving result. With an emphasis on groove, narration and a natural, unassuming poetry, “Empty Sounds” by Bernie Leroux brings a variety of qualities to the ear.

I really do hope that listeners will pay attention to the meaning of the lyrics and get something from them. I am quite sure most of us can relate to what I am expressing in these songs. Please enjoy.”

Leroux’s themes on “Empty Sounds” are anything but. They include personal tracks such as one dedicated to his mother and father, and one about surviving a black period in his life which ultimately reinforces his songwriting craft. More frequently his songs turn outward to themes of nature and the struggles of others. These include a track about ecology and climate change, the devastating burning of Fort McMurray in Alberta, and the title track, which is about one of Canada’s First Nations.

The title track, ‘Empty Sounds,’” writes Bernie Leroux, “is about the native Miꞌkmaq peoples of Newfoundland who were ignored in the Canadian Constitution. Hence, ’empty sounds,’ the silent whispers of the people, people talking without anyone hearing a word. It painted faces in my mind.”

In addition to the considerable skills of Leroux, himself, “Empty Sounds” also bears the talents of Randy Lewis, Christian Andersen, and Brandon Hopkins of High Point Audio studios.
