In honor of the talents, MiC Lowry, dropping their next single “Whiskey Kisses” at midnight, we give you a little acoustic session from them. The amazingly talented five-some has done some serious work since being featured in our Artist Spotlight series last year, and now gives Anita Baker some “Sweet Love”.
MiC Lowry has toured with Justin Bieber, and has massive success with their smash “Oh Lord“. They just made their debut television performance of “Oh Lord” on the Wendy Williams show yesterday.
We can’t wait to hear their new single tonight, and everything else this group has to offer!
I have always thought Jessie J was a superstar. Her first album was pure pop perfection, and in the years to follow she kind of lost that raw soul, and transitioned to more pop. She has had some smash hits since then, and then kind of disappeared from the game, until now.
“Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, while still a cover, is absolutely amazing. It is for a makeup campaign so there is no word on new music from her just yet. The arrangement and just hearing her vocals again is what excites me.
Jessie J is a full on artist with amazing song-writing abilities and a voice to match. She is the full package, and I hope this track will transition to new music because she is definitely missed.
After the jump, take a listen to one of the greatest songs of our generation written by the amazing Jessie J.
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!
I always try and keep up with our previous Artist Spotlights whenever they bring us new things. When they are as busy grinding as Leroy Sanchez is, it is hard to keep up but then you watch some of their material and just stop and have to share.
My favorite covers from him have been his Adele covers, and this one is no exception. There is so much emotion, and not to mention the vocal ability on this man just gets better and better each time.
If you didn’t know Leroy Sanchez is going on tour with the talented, Boyce Avenue, which you can find tickets for here!
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.
Check out the rest of my feature after the jump!
Probably one of the biggest songs of the year, Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ gets cover treatment from the talented Luke James. Luke has made quite the name for himself in the past year or so, opening for Beyonce on her UK leg, and for this guy it’s only the beginning. This cover is fantastic, and one of my favorites that I have heard so far. Luke brings kind of a R&B flow to an already soulful song, and while no one can touch the vocal ability of Sam Smith, Luke definitely holds his own on this track.
Maverick Sabre’s debut album Lonely Are The Brave, was one of my favorites of 2012, and while he is slowly prepping his comeback, we get to listen to this amazing cover. Maverick soulfully mashes up the 2 biggest hits of the summer, Calvin Harris’ ‘Summer’ and John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ into one track. I love everything about this, and it just reminds us of how talented this man is vocally. I look forward to hearing this mans follow up album, because it is sure to be on repeat just like his debut is.
This is one of those posts that is getting posted because you just need to hear the talent. Sam Smith is such a genius, and I am currently obsessed with him and his album In The Lonely Hour.
Go buy his album and concert tickets now.
because, who doesn’t love an acoustic MNEK track?
MNEK is going to be huge this year, and this is one of the reasons why. He is one of the few with Pure Talent, and I’m pretty much posting this because I am so ready for MNEK to grace us with new music this friday.
Turn it up and zone out.
