Stanaj was our Artist Spotlight a few months back, and now he gives us his debut music video off his fantastic EP, The Preview. “Ain’t Love Strange” is my favorite track off the EP, and the video is perfection. The visuals are basically an artsy representation of the lyrics which I think fits perfectly.
Stanaj is scheduled to perform this track on Jimmy Fallon tonight, and we have so much love for this talent. He will get his, much deserved, big break very soon.
I have been following the talent that is Brayton Bowman for quite some time now but I haven’t actually given him the necessary credit he deserves, so with September coming to a start he is this months Artist Spotlight!
There is a lot of talent running through this man, he has given us everything from 90’s mash-up’s to some fantastic, attitude filled original tracks. The best way to describe Brayton’s sound would be a more soulful pop sound, but I would use the term “Pop” lightly because I feel like that limits his sound. More recently, Brayton has been linked to another one of my favorites, MNEK, and with two talents like that together you know their music is going to be amazing.
Take a listen to a few of my favorite mash-ups and some original tracks below that the extremely talented Brayton Bowman has given us after the jump!
It is finally time for our Artist Spotlight of the month! This month’s goes to the extremely soulful and smooth vocalist, Stanaj.
I stumbled on this guy about 2 years ago, because I came across his cover of Miguel’s “All I Want Is You”, which is one of my favorite tracks by him. I was instantly hooked on the vocals that Stanaj so effortlessly creates. With a limited number of videos of him I was at a standstill for quite some time.
He produced some short instagram videos and that was all I had to deal with as I tried to keep up with his career. Well now he is making some serious presence with an original and so many more covers.
I put the first video I found below, and after the jump you’ll find much more information on the talent that is, Stanaj!
It s about that time for another Artist Spotlight, this one has just sprung up on me a couple of weeks and he goes by the name of Connor Mullally, or Mullally. He hails from the UK and is self described as as an “edgy, zesty, neo-soul” singer, which I think is just the perfect fit for him. He is the perfect blend of Adam Levine and Maverick Sabre, which are both phenomenal vocalists.
Mullally has a certain twang in his voice that gives him such a soulful edge which can easily set him apart from the rest. He doesn’t have much under his belt just yet, a few YouTube covers, and some originals which only were released recently.
I got hooked instantly on Mullally when I heard him sing his original “Lie With me”. The version below has been on repeat since I first came across it. There is some serious vocal talent here, and not to mention the song itself is well written. This guy is a force.
If you liked what you heard above, I have way more on this talent after the jump!
With the new month coming in, I bring you new talent that goes by the name of MiC LOWRY.
I stumbled on these guys recently and was instantly hooked while I watched cover after cover of everything from Calvin Harris to Dru Hill. With a musical knowledge as wide as theirs, you can already expect some serious talent coming from this five-some.
From left to right (pictured above) Michael, Delleile, Ben, Kaine, and Akia make up this talented five-some. It is a rare thing today to find a group, let alone an all male group. The charts are eating up the all female groups, but I think it is about time for some all male groups to rule the charts for a little bit.
Each one of them has so much talent, and their harmonies are just spot on, they draw my ears in with each second of every cover. I included one of my favorite covers from them below, and after the jump is way more on these talents if it sparks your interest as much as it did mine!
A little late on April’s Artist Spotlight, but better late than never!
This month I decided to share the talent known as Citizen Shade. I instantly fell in love with their cover of Rihanna’s “Work” (featured below), which I stated should be the only version of the song that is out. To be honest, I’m still not sure if Citizen Shade is a duo or what, but I don’t really care because I have no preference either way. I will just refer to them as a duo from here on out.
Here is their cover of Rihanna’s “Work”
After the jump, you will find more covers from this amazing duo.
My favorite cover king, Leroy Sanchez, is back and stronger than ever, this time with the very talented Jessica Sanchez (Idol season 11 runner up). This time Leroy and Jessica give us their spin on one of my favorite cuts from Justin Bieber’s album, Purpose, “The Feeling”.
We featured Leroy on our Artist Spotlight feature for March, and this cover definitely backs up our reason behind it. Leroy and Jessica’s vocals flow so effortlessly together, and while this isn’t the first duet they have done, this is my favorite.
Anyway, enough of my rant about their talent. Check out the video, and our Artist Spotlight series for more information!
This time around for my Artist Spotlight feature, I have given the spotlight to the talented vocalist known as, Leroy Sanchez. I stumbled upon his Youtube covers a little bit ago, and I can’t get enough of his vocal ability.
I’m not sure where he is in his career, all I know is that he has a couple of music videos up on youtube, one of which being “By My Side”. All his videos were released over a year ago, so I’m not sure if he is still crafting his sound because it seems by his Youtube covers that he is definitely maturing as an artist.
