Jp’s Music Blog Review: Unknown Hero “In My Head”

4 Oct


“From San Francisco comes the debut album from music producer/graphic artist Unknown Hero. His new album titled “In My Head” combines elements pop and dance music along with a futuristic dystopian storyline that plays into his love of comics and video games. The new 15-song musical soundtrack begins with Kate Wild on vocals for the addictive pop of “Be Alright,” before the modern R&B flavor of “Monsters In My Head” takes over. Unknown Hero displays his music skills on the classical/pop instrumental “A Minor 2125,” then delivers a more EDM (electronic dance music) beat with “Hero Beware.” He combines elements of R&B and electronic soundscapes in “Dance,” while “Keep Moving Me” is pure pop power. Unknown Hero wraps up his new album with the big beats of “Hero’s Groove” and the smooth vocals of “Close My Door.” To find out more about Unknown Hero and his latest release “In My Head,” please visit unknownheromusic.com.”

JP’s Music Blog Review: Birdseed “Not Out Of Time”

8 Aug


“The American rock band Birdseed recently released a new 10” vinyl EP titled “Not Out Of Time.” The band will be touring this fall and they wanted to get more music out to their fans. This new 5-song EP begins with the up-tempo title song as lead singer Kerry Landreth leads the band on this mainstream gem. They continue with the smooth, horn-infused melody of “Trip Around The Sun,” which sounds like it came from the 10,000 Maniacs catalog. Their new short release wraps up with the fun, youthful positiveness of “We Can Do It,” which features Kerry’s daughter on vocals and southern blues-rock groove of “More Than I Needed To Know.” To find out more about Birdseed and their latest vinyl-only release “Not Out Of Time,” please visit birdseedband.com.”

JP’s Music Blog Review: Jennifer Saran “Wake Up” [OUT TODAY!]

7 Jul


“American singer/songwriter Jennifer Saran is preparing to release her third studio album in three years. Her new release features guests like Carlos Santana and Ladysmith Black Mombazo and is titled “Wake Up.” Saran mixes together originals with covers songs, done her way. The new 15-song album begins with the wonderful harmonies of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, highlighted by the lead guitar of Carlos Santana on the island flavor of “Wake Up.” She pays tribute to the recently departed George Michael with a smooth, gentle cover of his song “Jesus To A Child” and also pays tribute to Billy Paul with a cover of “Me And Mr. Jones.” The energy picks back up with the African rhythm of “You Are My Star” as Saran duets with members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The tributes continue with her nostalgic cover of “Old Cape Cod” as a tribute to Patti Page and then an emotional delivery of “Lean On Me” as a tribute to Bill Withers. The album finishes with the beautiful ballad “My Love And Devotion” for Doris Day and the soulful prayer “Aad Guray.” To find out more about Jennifer Saran and her latest release “Wake Up,” please visit jennifersaran.com.”
