VIDEO PREMIERE! Singer Sydney Brown Releases Official Music Video for “Love Is Stronger Than Smoke and Fire” at TheUrbanMusicScene.com

16 Feb

World Video Premiere for Love is Stronger Than Smoke and Fire by Sydney Brown to aid those in need from the California Wildfires.

One benefit of being a gifted artist is utilizing their genuine voice of concern and hope while raising funds in assisting victims through unforeseen devastation. On her just released CD single and upcoming video (shot exclusively in and around Sonoma County), “Love is Stronger Than Smoke and Fire” (Tarpan Records) – Produced by Music Legend Narada Michael Walden, California based singer/actress Sydney Brown unveils her heart towards the families and individuals who are suffering through the recent California wildfires. In essence, the song’s title states it all through these particular lyrics: “Time to get up/Going through hardship/But sticking with it/Doing our best to be strong.”

When the devastating California fires broke out in October 2017, Sydney had already been recording with Narada. Horrified by what had happened to so many people in their area, they sat down to discuss lyrics and ideas, and the song “LOVE IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE” was born. Then Sydney had an idea: instead of creating this song for herself, she wanted to release the single in the interest of helping the fire victims that were so close to her. She teamed up with YouCaring and The Red Cross to ensure that proceeds from the single would go directly to both the Northern and Southern California fire victims. Within 48 hours of launching Sydney’s YouCaring fundraising campaign, her initial goal of $5,000 was met. Funds are still being raised. (GOPR)

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CA – SYDNEY BROWN is a Pop singer/songwriter from San Francisco, CA, and together with Bay Area legend NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN wrote and recorded the single “LOVE IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE” as a benefit for the victims of the 2017 California fires. Presently 16 years old, Sydney began her singing career in 2009 and has performed in over ten Broadway musicals with different local theatre companies, including her favorites Legally Blonde, West Side Story, and Sweet Charity. Sydney met Narada in 2010 and began performing with him at his Spring Fling with Strings Concert, singing a cover of the Bill Withers classic “Lean on Me” for her first solo performance.

SYDNEY BROWN began writing her own music in 2017, and is excited to release her debut single “LOVE IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE” on February 9, 2018. The song is co-written and produced by the iconic Grammy-winning producer NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN, who has also produced such legendary stars as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Sting, and George Michael. The single was recorded at the illustrious Tarpan Studios in San Rafael, California, and will be released in association with Walden’s Tarpan Records.

For more information on the fundraising project, please visit youcaring.com/sydneybrownmusic.

The intense message of the lyrics and the situation has inspired the creation of a full-length music video for the song, with scenes in the video that include footage from the Sonoma, Napa, and Los Angeles fires and their aftermath. Shot exclusively in and around Sonoma County, the video will debut worldwide on February 16, 2018. See a short preview of the video at https://youtu.be/6bWg1-JHtKg.

The 2017 California fires have been devastating, and this cause has touched Sydney’s heart. Her goal is to touch the hearts of others and to ensure that all the fire victim’s lives are restored to the best of their ability. Like her father Willie Brown, former Mayor of San Francisco, Sydney believes in justice for everyone, no matter what. SYDNEY BROWN and Willie Brown will host a release event for “LOVE IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE” at the Golden Gate Yacht Club on February 10, 2018.

Along with her love for music, Sydney has always had a desire to be a social justice warrior. She joined the Mock Trial team when she began high school in Marin County in 2015, sparking a passion for law which has since begun to flourish. Not only has she joined the Mock Trial team, but she has also been hired for an internship with a local criminal defense attorney. As being an advocate for social justice stole her heart, she wanted to combine her music with that passion. With the release of her new single in February 2018, that dream has become a reality.

US Review: Jennifer Saran “Wake Up”

11 Dec

http://www.seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=20478

Saran, Jennifer: Wake Up

Jennifer Saran is a Hong Kong based singer songwriter with a new album titled Wake Up, the follow up to her holiday album Merry Christmas, You Are Loved released in 2015. First things first. If you are solely into progressive rock you might as well stop reading this immediately as this is adult contemporary pop music with the occasional nod to jazz and soul. To prove my point the first time I put this in the player my wife replied, “this is nice.” She is not the biggest prog rock fan if you get my drift although she does like the occasional helping of Floyd and Rush. The album recording is top notch with the instruments and vocals very clear. On the plus side Saran does have a beautiful voice and she also gets help from the African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo on three tracks including the lead off title tune which also includes lead guitar from Carlos Santana. Here is playing is reserved and mostly set back in the mix although it is always a treat to hear the man play. The rest of the songs are mostly slow to mid-tempo balladic fair with ear candy choruses and lush strings.

My favourite song is the Billy Paul tribute “Me and Mr. Jones”, a nicely crafted soulful ballad and a real throwback to a bygone era. The synth solo in the infectious “Look At Me Fly” is also quite nice. The heartwarming “Old Cape Cod” is another nod to old time pop music.Being that I mostly listen to much heavier music I probably won’t play this much but over the holiday season this just might hit the spot when wanting something light and airy. And hey, my better half will likely appreciate it.Track Listing:
1. Wake Up (4:36)
2. Jesus To A Child Tribute to George Michael (5:11)
3. Really (4:10)
4. Me and Mr. Jones – Tribute to Billy Paul (4:50)
5. You Are My Star (4:25)
6. Too Young To Know (4:16)
7. Better Than Me – ‘for anjali’ (3:23)
8. Look At Me Fly (4:02)
9. Old Cape Cod – Tribute to Patti Page (3:30)
10. Try To Forgive (But I Cannot Forget) (4:24)
11. Lean On Me – Tribute to Bill Withers (4:42)
12. Grace Is The Champion (3:32)
13. I Will Always Be Your Home (4:16)
14. My Love and Devotion – Tribute to Doris Day (4:18)
15. Aad Guray (5:42)
