Erick Grant offers music fans a stunning set of vocals, the sort that lean back and forth between the almost whispered and the soulful and mighty – even a little reminiscent of Eddie Vedder.
This is original EDM at the dawn of its meeting with the pop vocalists of the world – there’s something smooth & calming about the drop, it’s not intense or overly attention grabbing, it just softly draws you in even more so than before.
The whole thing utilizes these various musical stages to build something emotionally compelling & poignant around the listener. Great songwriting, original & intent on connecting in a pure & powerful way.
“I was told I couldn’t sing, that I wasn’t good enough on guitar & that I sucked as a musician. Each time I was told I wasn’t good enough I tried harder, to the point where I have evolved into the artist I am now. Now I make music for the love.”
Ed Hale is a fantastic songwriter – this album is driven by a fine fusion of this and a totally enjoyable, eclectic and impressive array of musicianship. Hale’s voice offers a certain meeting between indie-rock grit and singer-songwriter delicacy, the songs feel upbeat but calm – energizing yet welcoming.
Alexis is a project that has been compiled with care and professionalism alike – you can hear this in the music, alongside of passion and positivity, every step of the way. Gerred has put so much of himself into the album, and it works.
The various vocal sections add further to the passion & creativity – the intensity & pace increases, the song starts to hit harder. The final moments are huge, a backing choir and a kicked up beat create beautiful chaos behind the artist’s soulfully meandering voice.
Things vary throughout, keeping you interested & creating something genuinely artistic & dramatic before you. It’s an interesting album in a number of ways, but it’s also quite easy to simply let play – a well suited project for those late nights that seem to never end.
Spike’s voice has a traditionally rock-ready tone, so to hear this broken down performance, among talk of the evil of men – it hits with an additional level of pain.
The song brings together professional performance and production, creativity, passion, and a topic that’s increasingly finding itself at the forefront of modern life.
Moromo always puts so much of himself into his music anyway, but this latest single seems to be in a league of its own in that respect. His voice veers off without a care, lost in the moment and swept away by the central idea of the song.
A fascinating song, both in terms of the writing and the overall audio output. The lyrics are perhaps the last thing to take hold, but once they have you, they don’t let go until the end.
