What more is there to say? Except I can assure you, you’ve most definitely never heard music like this before. A sure fire attention grabber that stands apart from the crowd, in its own dimension; in its own space and time.

 

So let me introduce to you, ‘Queen’ MonicaHotts…

 

Born in Guadalajara, MX and moved to the United States (Michigan) in 1980-81, Carla Early AKA ‘MonicaHotts’ is a disciple of Avant Guarde electronica. It’s quite obvious as you listen to her material that it’s definitely not to be pigeon holed into a contemporary music box. There is no contrived formula. This is emotion. This is Monica Hotts as she truly is, walking the path of the brave. She is unique. She is a Maverick.

 

 

‘The kids are Aghast’ is a laid-back track smothered in melancholy through its glitchy arrangements. Synths sounds and syncopated bleeps are the common denominator throughout her work. With a tasty element of Post Punk philosophy in her music too which can be heard to educated ears. Minimal to the point of the bare bones of music, it strangely grabs your attention with its simplicity and lack of ego. The tracks are a combination of ‘tech step’ ‘house sounds’ along with blues, blue grass, big band etc.

Buddy Guy – Blue No More

 

 

Multi-Grammy Award winning blues icon Buddy Guy has released his brand new studio album THE BLUES IS ALIVE AND WELL via Silvertone, RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

 

In advance of album release, Buddy shared a few songs for his fans: ‘Cognac’ featuring Keith Richards & Jeff Beck, ‘Blue No More’ featuring James Bay, and the Sonny Boy Williamson penned-classic ‘Nine Below Zero’. The album also features Mick Jagger joining Buddy on ‘You Did The Crime’. Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and long-time collaborator Tom Hambridge produced the album and penned 13 original songs for the album.

 

The press have been raving about the new tracks released thus far. Rolling Stone called the first track out “Nine Below Zero,” “searing” and “masterful” and declared “Buddy Guy proves blues is alive and well” and Guitar World wrote “scintillating” and “powerful.”   Of the second song released, ‘Blue No More’ featuring James Bay, Billboard described it as a “soulful slow-jam,” and Rolling Stone noted “…Bay knows he’s singing in the company of musical royalty, so he pushes his voice as hard as he can, exploring the rougher edges of his register. Buddy Guy is 81, but he shows no signs of decreasing productivity.”

 

Last week, Buddy released ‘Cognac’ featuring Jeff Beck & Keith Richards to continued raves. In their review, Rolling Stone writes “the five-minute six-string showcase doubles as a bluesy drinking session between the trio of ‘Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists’ as Guy howls about women, the past and one late bluesman who was a drinking buddy.” Guitar World calls ‘Cognac’ “the trio’s wonderful concoction” and Grammy.com writes it’s “a spell-binding dip into the blues.”

 

THE BLUES IS ALIVE AND WELL is the follow up to Guy’s 2015 critically acclaimed album BORN TO PLAY GUITAR, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Album charts. The album marked Guy’s fifth #1 album on the chart and twelfth Top 10 Billboard Blues album.

 

It was previously announced that Buddy Guy will be the recipient of The Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award on September 12 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

 

In his quest to keep the genre vital, Guy recently spoke about the origin of southern blues and performed on David Letterman’s Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

 

The recipient of the 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Buddy Guy’s incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include 7 Grammy Awards, 37 Blues Music Awards, Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.

Mark Rogers – Imagining

 

Mark Rogers is a BMI-published singer/songwriter with unique pop sensibilities.  His musical heritage, dating back to high school, is what is now considered pure Americana.  After college, Mark followed the chime of McGuinn’s 12-string in search of Zevon’s Los Angeles. In the 80’s, he headed a Cosmic American band in L.A. and played some of the loneliest clubs in Hollywood. An experience that contributed to his decision to spend the 90’s and 00’s raising a family in Washington, DC. In 2010, a number of factors conspired resulting in the modern proliferation of his songwriting, not the least of which was reconnecting with “the one who got away” a long time ago.  Life’s funny that way.

 

In 2017, Mark released his first solo EP entitled “Rearranged” that has received wonderful reviews in “No Depression” and other prominent music blogs and publications.  In June 2018, he’ll release his follow-up EP entitled “Qualifiers” representing his very best work to date.  His music reestablishes the boundaries of Americana with a healthy dose of Pop, Folk/Rock, and some cool Bossa rhythm, just to keep things in order. Mark resides in eastern Virginia and tours with a 5-piece band.

El Yambo – Querer y Amar

 

Mi nombre es Yúnior Alfredo Barral Martínez. Nací el 26 de marzo de 1983 en la ciudad de Cienfuegos, Cuba. Empecé mis estudios primarios en la escuela “Rafael Espinosa Armenteros”, en la cual a los nueve anos de edad tuve mi primera experiencia musical al integrar el coro de la escuela por seis años. Por mis condiciones vocales participe en varias competencias inter-escolares alcanzando por dos ocasiones el galardón de “Mejor Coro” de la provincia. A los trece años comencé mis estudios secundarios en la escuela “Cinco de Septiembre” e integré el grupo musical “Cielito Lindo” en las tumbadoras y como cantante durante los tres cursos. Participe en giras nacionales y encuentros competitivos entre escuelas.

 

La enseñanza preuniversitaria la curse en el instituto “Virgilio González Villa” donde forme parte del cuerpo de baile “Enjoy”como director del grupo ganando todos los encuentros de artistas aficionados de la provincia de Cienfuegos. Al concluir el preuniversitario comencé mi carrera musical en el grupo folklórico “Obbailu”, seleccionado como cantante principal en un casting. En este grupo participe en festivales nacionales e internacionales de rumba, logrando la distinción de Mejor Grupo de Rumba del país, Premio Bata de Oro, Grupo Novel del Ano y Catalogo de la Excelencia que me merece la categoría de profesional al integrarme a la Empresa Provincial de la Música “Rafael Lay” como integrante del coro provincial “Sonans” dirigido por Mileidys Oropesa, con el cual profundizo mis conocimientos de juego de voces e independización formando así el dúo Yúnior y El Menor como director y logrando la mayor audiencia en la provincia. Seguidamente soy llamado a integrar el popular grupo de fusión “TecnoCaribe” con incontables frutos y profesionalismo en mi carrera musical como compositor y arreglista; actuando en distintos escenarios como programas de TV de gran teleaudiencia nacional, telecentros de distintas provincias y canales educativos. Entre los logros en esta etapa también se destacan el de la Condición de Huésped Ilustre de Yaguajay y Mejor Grupo Juvenil del país, obteniendo la propuesta de integrar el grupo musical “Categoría Cinco” y el traslado así de domicilio a la capital cubana donde tengo la oportunidad de trabajar en prestigiosos escenarios como el Hotel Capri, “La Cecilia”, Casa de la Música de Galeano y Miramar, así como también las primeras giras internacionales, video clips de altas producciones y competencias con los mejores del país en los Premios Lucas. Luego de varios años de trabajo y experiencia musical, comienzo mi carrera como solitario, gracias a la empresa norteamericana Luckys Music Productions, la cual me da la oportunidad de lanzar mi primer álbum en solitario llamado “Renacer” compuesto por siete canciones que reflejan la cubania y vivencias de mi país.

Laice – Monster

Laice – Monster

 

 

Boston, MA (May 25th, 2018) – LAICE has released a confident new single, “Monster”. The song, which follows on the heels of her debut single “Independence” and features YouTube sensation Olivia Cella, is an impassioned reclamation of time and energy wasted on a relationship that has gone south. 16-year-old Laice’s self-assured vocal is immediately striking as she flits between graceful runs and chopped vocal hooks, while a rippling mid-tempo track grooves along in the background. “Monster” not only showcases Laice’s versatility as a singer, but also paints a picture of Laice’s departure from a toxic relationship, relaying an inspiring message for young girls.

 

 

“This song is about having confidence in yourself,” says Laice. “I wrote ‘Monster’ to help me overcome the feeling of leaving behind a really bad relationship where I was constantly getting hurt, and to encourage other girls to know their worth and stand up for themselves when they are mistreated.”

 

 

Raised in Massachusetts, the young artist and songwriter delivers R&B-tinged-Pop music with power and nuance well beyond her years. Laice joins forces on her sophomore single with producer @GrammyDavisJr, whose airy dancehall-infused track complements the force behind Laice’s dynamic delivery. “Monster” simultaneously shows off the strength of Laice’s vocal range and melodic sensibility and reflects the personal strength she imbues into her music in the hopes of positively influencing young women.

 

 

From an even younger age, Laice has set out to follow in the footsteps of her female role models in the music world. With her second single, she is well on her way, drawing inspiration from vocal powerhouses like Beyoncé and Sia and crafting songs with soaring hooks that would fit Rihanna. “Monster” is just a glimmer of what the future has in store for this young talent, with more music on the way later this year.
