Keys and Chords Review: E-Life 7 “Miked Up”

30 Mar


Guitarist Ron Walker and bassist Mike Pennick have long been friends, and writing for years ballads and R & B grooves. They are both members of The Exoutics. Now she felt it was time to bring the jazzy side up, and put Mike’s talent in the spotlight. That led to the formation E-Life 7, further comprising keyboard player Rodney Spears & Charlie Crymes Jr., drummer and percussionist Tim Webb. They received additional assistance of guest musicians such as saxophonist, singers and keyboard players. The project began released in the summer of 2012 and now their debut. Opener ‘Sunday Night’ brings cheerful, instrumental jazz funk, followed by the funky ‘Chaos’. ‘Smooth Ride’ is softer, and further is the remake of Stevie Wonder’s “That Girl.” ‘Sunrise’ is pretty smooth jazz with sax, and ‘Before The Storm’ too. The title track is again jazz funk, but ‘Beautiful Day’ goes softer against it. Still further, the second “radio edits” of Tony Rome “and” Feelin You “. Not bad, with some nice tracks.
This debut from the band E-Life 7 Focuses on the bass guitar or Michael Pennick with some beautiful tracks.

Miked Up was released on March 24, 2017 through Three 2 Go Music.
