Y Fly 2 London
The 80’s gave us rock pop filled hair bands we listened to over and over again. Those skin-tight pants, unbutton shirts, long flowing hair, pouty lips and guitar riffs that sent our tempos of rhythm full steam ahead. It was fun, it was freedom, it was rock, it was cruising the main streets, hanging out with your friends at a ‘boonies’ party, it was warm bottles of Heineken, or cheap Coors, it...
Tod Hughes Project – Changin’ Gears
YOU TUBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wfjyvGVkqs
It’s rare to have any insight why people write and record the music they do. If you look at major entertainers like Britney Spears, et al, the answer is clear. Financial rewards and public adulation motivate many. When you encounter a performer like Tod Hughes and his band, however, the answers are less clear. The six songs on his Changin’ Gears EP...
Ryan Aderrey – “Breathe The World In”
Following the 2014 success of his single “A Miracle, My Love” on pop radio, singer/songwriter Ryan Aderrey has not stood pat. Instead, this talented young man has continued to hone the songwriting chops by working with such luminaries as famed engineer Jimmy Douglass (Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and The Rolling Stones, among others) and renowned Grammy-winning producer Zach Ziskin. Aderrey wrote twenty songs for his upcoming album that...
Perhaps to be a pop singer you have to be full of yourself, I don’t know, I’m not a pop singer. I get that image is a big part of selling records these days, but reading the bio that Scott A.F. provided on his Facebook page and homepage, it was likely self-written, I couldn’t help but shudder. It didn’t help that the timing of my reading through his over-the-top bio at the same point in which I heard in...

Bunny Sigler – Bundino
Official URL: http://www.bunnysigler.net/
Seventy-nine year old R&B stalwart and soul singer extraordinaire Bunny Sigler pushes deep into the modern music scene with his new album Bundino. Sigler, a product of the Philadelphia school, has lost little of the zing from his strong voice and it serves the new album well. Sigler’s backing on Bundino loses the plot a few times, but a number of tracks show intelligent and occasionally surprising songwriting. Leave any misgivings about age at the door. This...
Sir Ivan is back with hot new single
It is always a fine line when trying to champion a valuable social or humanitarian cause while at the same time aiming to produce a piece of music that has the power, drive and potential to top a chart or to break into the music scene in such a way that the song will have enough of an impact for the cause. While it is important to bring the issue to light, it is difficult to balance...
Billy Grima – Sugar and Cream
Hailing from Australia, Billy Grima moved to Toronto, Canada at age 15. He started his musical adventure at a young age, writing his own music and singing in the church choir. His songs focus on the immediate world around him, often relying on subject matter like his family and the relationships with his family members as inspiration. He combines a variety of emotions and genres together to come out...
Shayne Leighton – Invincible
Writer and aspiring actress Shayne Leighton branches out into music with this six song EP, Invincible. It’s an apt title for a first release from such an assertive, confident performer. The confidence in her voice and music is the likely product of a passion burning in her since she was six years old. In her twenties, Leighton nevertheless sings with the conviction and skill of someone much older without ever...
