Alright ladies and gentleman, we have a very talented man who is about to blow up very soon. I have just come across Astronomyy and I wish I had sooner, while I don’t know much about him, I know he makes fantastic music, and for now thats all I need to know! ‘U Make Me Feel Good’ is hard to describe in words, to me it sounds like a modern soul track. It has a very smooth vibe, yet has a very R&B almost Trap sounding beat in the background. All I can say is, its perfection for my ears, and it will be to yours too.
Look out for his EP There For U, coming out July 28th, it is sure to please us!
2013 X-factor winners release their highly anticipated debut single titled ‘Scarecrow’. Surprisngly, the X-factor last year churned out a lot of talent, that will probably go unnoticed because they were a part of the X-Factor. Alex & Sierra were definitely one of my favorites off of the season, and while I don’t think this is their best effort, it is fun, and it fits them so well. I’m not sure how well it will do on the charts, but I’m loving it. Its a fun pop song, and fits in the trends of Bastille, One Direction, and The Neighbourhood.
Here is to them hopefully doing well, because they are very talented!
I don’t know too much about this guy, but all I need to know is that he is an amazing artist, with a very unique set of skills. The video above shows everything that sold me on this guy, and I’m sure if you watch it all the way through you will fall in love. The song itself is a work of art, and anyone who can produce a track in front of my eyes has my attention. This guy might not have the biggest following just yet, but watch out for him because I know I will be. All I know, is that he has my full support!
I’m about to jump into the stream of his album, and probably purchase it after that, as you should too.
Check out some more awesomeness from George Barnett after the jump!
I have known about Kwabs for a while, but he was kind of one of those people that got forgotten about since his music process is one that takes time. With the release of his music video for ‘Right or Wrong‘, earlier this year, he sparked back up on my radar. It seems he is ready to come into the limelight with the release of a fantastic EP,Right or Wrong, and most recently his release of a huge track called ‘Something Right’, which can be heard below.
Kwabs definitely has soul written all over his vocals, but something else can be said about the production behind his big vocal tracks. Most of his tracks are produced by SOHN, which has just recently released material of his own. Kwabs is definitely one to watch for in the coming year, and although with the release of MNEK’s solo tracks adds to his competition, but Kwabs seems to be going in a different direction.
Anyway, keep an eye on this guy in the near future, big things shall happen!
Also, if you want to be at lost for words, watch him perform a track off his EP called ‘Last Stand’ live after the jump!
Another talent that SBTV has highlighted for me named JP Cooper. This guy is more acoustic sounding but you can’t deny that voice on him. JP doesn’t have much going on yet as far as tracks go, he has a couple up on his soundcloud but other than that, you just have to stick to youtube videos for now. The song he is seen above ‘What went wrong’ is probably my favorite that I’ve heard from him so far. Once again, I can’t really say much yet, but keep an eye out on this guy too, big things are coming his way.
SBTV is one of my favorite online sources for new artists, sadly they are mostly all from the UK, but I’ll take a good singer when I can get one, and Ed Thomas is that guy. He was featured on a Chase & Status track titled ‘Blue’, and as seen above, he can do it justice acoustically too. Ed has an EP out titled Outlaws which can be heard at his official website. Other than his EP, he doens’t have anything else out or planned to be released soon, but I would keep an eye on this guy, he is going down the right track!
Just recently discovered BOOTS, and immediately fell in love wit his talent. BOOTS produced one of the biggest superstars tracks, Beyonce’s ‘Haunted/Ghost’. This track ‘Howl’ has a a little bit of each genre within, from soulful vocals to leading into a very dance friendly track towards the end, all while still keeping its R&B roots. This track is everything, and I hope to hear more from this guy, seriously talented!
I’ve never heard of Maxine Ashley until I heard some buzz on her new track produced by the one and only Pharrell. I decided to check it out, and it is everything! You can definitely hear Pharrell’s influence on the track, and Maxine’s smooth R&B vocals fit perfectly with this track. It has a very summertime vibe to it, which is perfect for this time of year. I haven’t looked into much else from her, but I definitely will soon! Repeat.
Just to build on the hype of this mans debut album coming Feb 11th, I give to you an acoustic version he recently performed for Billboard titled, ‘Love & Affection’. Another beautiful track that only furthers my interest in his album, I absolutely can’t wait for Days And Nights to come out! Stop reading this and listen!
Also, if anyone is going to SXSW, he will definitely be there and I hope for everyone to come out to his show in support!
Most of you probably haven’t heard of these talented guys known as the Afro Deezy Axe, yet. These guys are currently a local band located near the Dallas,Texas area and after a couple of years of gigging locally, they have managed to release an EP, and I have to say it sounds fantastic! The short 5 track EP features some of their best songs and doesn’t even begin to show the aura they give out during a live show. I highly recommend if you’re ever near to check them out!
The above track is the only one I could find in full on Youtube titled ‘Stay With Me’. Definitely check out the others on the EP even if you aren’t a fan of this track, they are all fantastic!
Anyway, you can check out their EP via Spotify and iTunes
Keep up to date with their gigs on facebook
