2014

Lena Fayre - Oko

 

    

 

 

Los Angeles based Lena Fayre delivers a superlative bland of music via this stunning debut collection entitled "Oko" In her own words "Oko marks the beginning" and is a direct extension of herself during the time of it's conception. "It helped me to push myself, and realize what I needed to do now." All songs on "Oko" are grooving, impassioned, soulful and sonically entertaining. In many respects "Oko" showcases the pinnacle of Modern day Alternative Pop. What's more Fayre's striking look, persona, and overall mystique will demand your attention, but it's it's her amazing voice that sealed the deal for me personally. All this and more make "Oko" by Lena Fayre my 2014 "CD OF THE YEAR."

Bigg Redd - Do You Qualify

 

    

 

 

Louisiana based Josef “Bigg Redd” Arline brings us his amazing blend of Creole Soul via this amazing 13 track CD entitled Do You Qualify. I've never heard one artist touch so many genre's before - so effectively and so effortlessly. From Delta Blues to Motown to Classic Americana to Reggae and even Saloon Jazz to Jazzy Pop, Bigg Redd Arline remains one off the hottest undiscovered talents I have ever heard.

2 The Nines - Oblivion

 

    

 

 

Oblivion by "2 The Nines" is an amazing Cinderella story based out of Los Angeles, California. It's 2 core members (T.J. Runnells, Nick Midulla) spent years carefully crafting this 13 song catalog in their basement with nothing more than a guitar, microphone and a beat box. The final result is an amazing collection of songs that combine world class songwriting, with breathtaking performances. Throw in strong marketability, good chops and a producers touch make this debut CD from "2 The Nines" one of the best Independent productions I've ever heard - period.

Tim Miller - Adelaide

 

    

 

 

Bravo to Tim Miller for not only releasing a well crafted, emotionally charged collection of music, but also paying a little extra to record it on Analog tape for a warm and smooth sounding feel.
