This Mellow Releases touching debut single I’m With you

New Music

This Mellow – I’m With You

The ‘I’m With You’ is the shiny debut single to come from Perth based artist This Mellow. Inspired by the lockdowns and being separated from family in the UK, ‘I’m With You’ sums up the sentiment that we can all relate to after the past year. A song of faith that can be turned to in these difficult times, This Mellow fuses the love for his family with the love he feels in his Christian faith.

This Mellow is a Christian contemporary music artist based in Perth, Australia. Born and raised in the UK he was first inspired to pick up the guitar after seeing George Harrison on the Beatles Anthology series. This Mellow started making music when he was fifteen years old and played his first live show only eight months after first picking up the guitar. At sixteen he went into the studio to record his first song, singing and playing all the instruments himself. He went on to spend many years as a gigging secular musician before becoming a born again Christian in 2017. This life changing moment led him to withdraw from the secular music world and to finally go solo, working on his own faith based music. This Mellow spent 2020 writing his first Christian inspired songs, his first being forthcoming debut single ‘I’m With You’. His distinctive sound is described as stripped down acoustic music inspired by CCM artists Chris Tomlin, Leeland and Zach Williams. This Mellow is currently in the studio recording working on new material and preparing for his first live shows.

Timmy The Boy Releases Smashing New Music That’s Never Enough


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Never Enough Single Cover

Tim Pinter III AKA Timmy The Boy began his musical journey at the age of 17 with earbuds and an old laptop.

The singer has come a long way playing notable gigs and events such as Lil Whyte and Kstylis, Performed at the Odd Mall Music Festival in Alliance Ohio and headlined several sold out shows.

With his previous tracks gaining extensive radio play, his brand-new alternative rock single, ‘Never Enough’, could very well be the one to put Alliance on the map.

Producers Nelyk, Hieloways, Josh Beacom, Alex Artimez  and artistic guidance from Kaelynn Kemp with video production by Jeep DiCicio, Tim’s upcoming album should be one on your radar.

Tim’s inspiration comes from Rex Orange County’s live album and ‘Never Enough’ is a song based on the mind set of majority of males, according to Tim.

With either bad luck or perhaps just the wrong girl, it seems that no matter how much he tried in giving to his girl, it was ‘Never Enough’

 

‘I could give the world to a girl and they want to burn it. So, I took that raw emotion and put it into a song’, say’s Tim.

It hasn’t all been smooth sailing during the recording stages, as his life was turned upside with unfortunate circumstances relating to his step-father attending rehabilitation, making this particular time in Tim’s life, rather taxing.

So, as an ode to the boys who gave it their all, but it’s just never enough, take a listen to this groove alternative rock track, ‘Never Enough’ and keep your head high.

Jag Bentley Returns with Latest Single ‘Stress’

Soulful Thrilling New Kid On The Block Timothy Wolf releases Debut Single


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indie Music

 

Introspective soulful blues with a hint of ‘I’m ready to boogie’, Timothy Wolf is the thrilling new kid on the block sharing his extraordinary debut single In Your Arms Again, an alluring ode to long term love.  Following an enormous debut sell out show at The Night Cat Fitzroy last month, Timothy Wolf and his boisterous nine-piece band The Howlers are set to step it up with their single launch show at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on May 6, with support from Guthrie. 

 

Recorded in the tropical hinterland of Byron Bay at Bernard Fanning and Nick DiDia’s famed La Cueva Studios, produced and mixed by Dan Frizza (The Waifs, Gurumul, Ash Grunwald) and mastered by Michael Lynch (John Butler Trio), In Your Arms Again perfectly blends blues and soul, and immediately asserts that old-soul Timothy Wolf has indeed arrived.  This is the song we didn’t know we needed from this hugely exciting new artist.  In Your Arms Again is buoyed by gentle and restrained horns, and coupled with smooth electric guitar and moving keys that perfectly complement that stunning Timothy Wolf vocal, a falsetto on display that would make Al Green swoon.

 

Speaking on the recording at La Cueva, the singer songwriter says, “It was such a special time away. We didn’t know we were within the eye of the Covid 19 hurricane or that we’d head straight back into a gruelling stage 4 Melbourne lockdown. Timing came together for us perfectly as we were gifted the opportunity to hide away in the Byron Bay Hinterland, connect as the musical family we’d always seen the potential for and bring these songs to life.”

 

Growing up listening to 50s soul and rockabilly and as a kid learning songs in his bedroom by Otis Redding, Johnny Cash and Etta James, Timothy Wolf explains, “It inspires me that they came from a time where they literally founded and defined the rules of balladry and songwriting. I think ‘In Your Arms Again’ is pretty true to some of these classic influences whilst lending itself to a contemporary soundscape. I’ve been quite ambitious pushing the boundaries yet trying to serve this song with the influences it deserves whilst also incorporating the sound and identity myself and The Howlers have to offer.” He further insights, “The song comes from a dreamy, old soul, rosy-eyed state. I’m lucky enough for all of my grandparents to have had 50+ year marriages. This song highlights the commitment relationships like this take whilst also drawing from within my own rosy-eyed beginnings. There’s also a chance it might have come from one of the weddings I’ve played trying to support my original project.”

 

Filmed by Shoelace Creative (Didirri, Kim Churchill, Hollow Coves), the video for In Your Arms Again follows Timothy Wolf + The Howlers at their sold out debut show at The Night Cat last month. Wolf explains, “It is important to me that people can get an idea of what to expect at a Timothy Wolf + The Howlers show, so we turned our debut show at The Night Cat into a film clip. It will also serve as a beautiful life cataloguing moment of our humble beginnings. Our debut show with so many of our dearest friends, playing a song written in my bedroom.”

 

With a stack of new music to back up this thrilling debut single, and a vibrant show that will wow and set tongues wagging, we suggest you grab your tickets, strap on your dancing shoes and stay tuned for an early look into the mischief that is Timothy Wolf + The Howlers.

Timothy Wolf + the Howlers are Tim Richardson (vocals, choral harmonies, piano, Wurlitzer, electric rhythm guitar), James Difabrizio (lead electric guitar), Jesse Richardson (trumpet), Ayden Thorne (bass and saxophone), Graham King (drums and percussion), Piper Bennett-Swinley (vocals), Jessie Singleton (vocals), Lawson Kennard (bass guitar) and Barry White (keys).

Nkechi Anele, Triple J – “Your falsetto is unworldly and your voice by itself is so f&$*ing pure – you’re a unicorn.”

Ella Fence releases her new 5 Track EP, NO THANK YOU!

Released through Golden Robot Records, this wonderful collection of new music is, as always, sublime and inspirational. Ella continues to work outside the bullshit pre-existing order of the music industry and has recorded, without fear or favour, an EP that is elegant and experimental, a mix of pop electro beats and soaring cinematic vocals. Ella has tendency to do things differently and this engaging EP is no different.

“Known Better” was the single lifted from the EP, a brooding clash of drums and atmospheric synth. “More to Life”, another gem, combines Avantgarde with pure pop sensibilities and a tip of the hat to Minnie Ripperton. Also noteworthy is “Hurricane”, embracing the spirit of high-octane dance/electro grooves mixed with inspired electronica.

NO THANK YOU is beautiful example of sweet and succulent vocals blended with popish energy and soul all bundled in an unapologetically explorative, emotional and intense listening experience, from an artiste who would rather make own trail than follow a pre-ordained path.

Sam Marks Delivers Lush New Single ‘Tend To Yourself’


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indie Rock Artist

 

With his compelling, husky vocals and soft spot for reverb-drenched guitars, Sydney-based virtuoso Sam Marks is back with a new single ‘Tend To Yourself’, a lush indie-rock track brimming with groovy reggae influences.

His third single, following the release of well-received summertime tune ‘Eventide’ last November, ‘Tend To Yourself’ sees Marks bring a new depth to his music, adding a flavoursome reggae twist to his familiar blend of upbeat indie-rock.

A rich single charged with soaring guitars and a contagious beat that accentuates Marks’ powerful vocals, ‘Tend To Yourself’ surges with unbridled energy in the song’s second half with a razor-sharp overdriven guitar riff and solo, bringing an exhilarating edge to the track. Like a cooling breeze on a warm day, ‘Tend To Yourself’ is a breath of fresh air, further showcasing Marks’ vocal prowess and willingness to explore multiple influences within his music.

Known for invoking feelings of nostalgia through his music, Marks wrote ‘Tend To Yourself’ whilst reflecting on his time during COVID-19, aiming to remind people about the importance of self-care, stating:

“The title says it all. Tend To Yourself. However that may be. Ironically, this is something I’m not very good at – switching off and relaxing. During covid I was forced to have some down time, as most people were. I learnt about how important it can be.”

No stranger to the Australian music scene, Sam Marks studied classical composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and has played in multiple rock bands during the past decade. Since starting his own venture in September with his solo debut single ‘Ellie Mae’, Marks continues to solidify his standing as a respected solo artist with his uniquely crafted brand of nostalgic indie-rock.

Marks’ previous releases have seen support from Triple J Unearthed, Aus Music Scene, The AU Review, AAA Backstage and more.

‘Tend To Yourself’ is out NOW!

LT Shares Slice Of Dream Indie Pop With New Single


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indie Pop Singer

Three times Queensland Music Award winner, singer songwriter LT shares her delightful new single, Hold Ya – a sugary slice of heartening dream pop.  The track is accompanied by a charming Chelsey Johnston video that perfectly captures some lovely moments of connection between people.
 

Soaked in nostalgia, Hold Ya is clever indie pop that showcases LT at her best.  Littered with triumphant brass notes and uplifting guitar, the track is buoyed by LT’s dreamy voice with that refreshing Aussie pronounciation she’s known for.  “Hold Ya was written during a pretty turbulent time,” explains LT“It’s a story about two people in love, however through the struggles they’ve endured they begin to drift apart.  Neither of them want to leave, but both of them are desperately seeking reassurance that the other wants them to in fact stay and it turns out they both do.” Listen to Hold Ya

Already notching up some impressive acclaim pre-release, Hold Ya placed LT as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and a finalist in the Queensland Music Awards (Blues & Roots category).  And LT’s last single Overthinker was part of the Slow Down Songs campaign last month, she’s one of ten Queensland acts (including Jungle Giants, Tijuana Cartel and more) who have donated their tunes to a Spotify campaign addressing road safety outside schools, alerting drivers when they are five kilometres from a school zone. The Slow Down Songs campaign on behalf of the Australian Road Safety Foundation sees Spotify insert the songs, edited to include the safety message, into the personalised playlists of its Queensland premium users.  

Filmed and edited by emerging filmmaker and fellow Cairns local, Chelsey Johnston, with visual effects and animation by Annie Murray from Bigger Picture Animation, LT insights, “Chelsey had the beautiful idea of capturing moments of connection between people. Mothers and daughters, best friends and lovers all connecting in different ways.  She messed around with the speed of the track during the filming process, which really signified to me the changes of pace we all experience in any relationship.  Relationships change, move, disappear and reinvent themselves all the time and our life can be quite tough if we don’t allow them to do that.  Sometimes you’ve got to try harder, and sometimes you have to let go.  We chose to film at the Cairns Roller Skating Rink as it’s dear to the community and holds so many memories and stories of connection within its 1980s decor.”  View Hold Ya video  

The UK-born, Papua New Guinea-raised, far north Queensland resident, LT recently rebranded from Leanne Tennant. After the release of her third studio album Happiness Is…..in the troubled year of 2020, Leanne had the space and time to reflect on her career to date – and where she wanted to head in 2021.  She explains, “I rarely ever get called by my full name, and I really felt that after such a complicated year it was time to simplify my life and go by the name most know me by and start 2021 with a fresh outlook. LT feels so right to me.

Thrilled to get back to performing live after the year that was, LT recently supported Bernard Fanning and has announced shows at Bearded Lady (Brisbane) on April 17, Brother Jenkins (Cairns) on April 22 and will play the Sunshine Sounds Festival (Eumundi, QLD) on May 1 and 2.

Quote The Raven – Home is Worth the Blues

Place Your Bets On Talented Singer Laine Gardner

Sometimes things happen in your life for a reason, sometimes we don’t know why or what the universe is trying to tell us, but there must have been a reason for my wanting to click on the email out of hundreds, to listen to this track……and then that reason was clear.

When a song begins by pulling you in within the first 30 secs you know it’s worth listening to.

As soon as Kirsten Rodden-Clarke opens with her warm and captivating voice with ‘Baby I’ve been gone….’ I was in.

Que Jordan Coaker and the track blossomed like watching a sunflower opening in fast motion loaded with emotion and near perfect harmony.

Home is Worth the Blues is a simple yet a powerful song both lyrically and musically that shows the combination of what this duo has to offer; it’s simply beautiful.

Perhaps it’s my current state of mind as I hung off every word, and when I couldn’t quite hear what that lyric was, I went to the extent of emailing and asking for the lyrics. (something I never do)

If you know me and how meticulous and hard to please I am, this is saying a lot, and to add to this, I was never a great fan of the generalised folk genre of music.

The song was written by Jorden, Kirsten and Blake Reid and is an ode to their working lives for the joys that home provides.

Prior to this track, Quote the Raven had success from their Christmas single, “Lonely Christmas” and “Hope” which was a summer release resulting on the TRAX Canada Country Top 100 for over 24 weeks!

Quote the Raven states, “Written in a slaughterhouse in Calgary, the single was inspired by the environment, the stories told and the history within the building,… We want this song to resonate with those who are always working tirelessly to make ends meet and to know their voices are heard.”

The lyrics could be related to any situation that applies to what any individual is encountering in their lives and I found this extremely soothing, sad and brilliant!

Can’t wait for their upcoming album ‘Can’t Hold the Light’.

Place Your Bets On Talented Singer Laine Gardner

Lanie Gardner. Write that name down ladies and gentlemen and mark my words, I guarantee this young woman will become so huge you will wish there were bets taking place. (no, I’m not a gambler)

But seriously, when I was scrolling, not looking for artists, A video of Lanie Gardner singing the Fleetwood Mac cover, ‘Dreams’ popped up; my jaw dropped.

‘Dreams’ is the French Electronic music producer, David Guetta latest masterpiece where Lanie Gardner features as guest vocalist.

At the ripe ol’ age of just 21, the Nashville singer clearly oozes talent and class all while having a seemingly relaxed attitude.

Gardner’s voice has a raspy yet clear tone; the kind that doesn’t need her to hold up a sign begging to be noticed; her vocal and persona does it all quite naturally.

Would I say she is a natural? Absolutely, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t worked hard.

Lanie’s grandfather had a passion for music who perhaps helped lay the foundation inspiring her to kick off singing at the age of 4 and began writing songs at the age of 12.

After seeing her in various social media posts, it’s quite obvious she has fun doing what she loves and after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

While majority of Lanie’s Youtube consists of covers, there are a few originals that are truly impressive, my favourite being ‘Cry Me A River’.  

I believe there are new original songs in the pipeline after being spotted and signed by Kevin Jonas from the Jonas Group.

Lanie’s vocal quality and performances throughout her originals and covers, show great maturity. I can’t wait to hear what’s coming next!!

Casey Barnes Australian Tour with New Single and Video


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Australian Country Music Singer

Australian country megastar Casey Barnes has today released his energetic new single Come Turn Me On, a track that reminds us that there’s nothing better than coming home to the one you love. Casey has also announced a dynamic, thrilling, neon-soaked video to accompany the track.  To celebrate Come Turn Me On, he’ll be hitting the road, kicking off in Adelaide for the Fringe Festival (Today) on March 7, then moving through Prince Bandroom Melbourne, Mathinna (Tas), Winton’s Way Out West Fest, Gippsland Country Music Festival, Toowoomba, the Gympie Music Muster on August 26 and 27 and wrapping up at Savannah In The Round (Mareeba, QLD) on October 1.

With a bunch of chart-topping singles (and albums) already under his belt, Casey Barnes is headed straight to the top again with Come Turn Me On. Evocative of country/pop crossover masters Dan + Shay and Keith UrbanCome Turn Me On is a firecracker of a single, comfortably at home on both country and pop radio and playlists.  Written by Casey and Nashville-based songwriting duo Brown + Gray (who also co-wrote Casey’s number one singles Sparks Fly and We’re Good Together) and produced by production duo MSquared in Australia, a pounding beat and hooky guitars characterise this enticing track.  Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Casey explains, I’d like to think that we’re trying to shape our own unique sound at the moment.  I don’t really want to sound like anyone else…. With this single, it has that blend of modern country meets commercial pop which I’ve really connected with over the last few years.  The song is about a guy who’s basically travelled around the world, seen his fair share of girls but nothing compares to coming home to the one he loves.”

Australian Music Casey Barnes

The video for Come Turn Me On is a full-on production – shot as though all in one take, the clip takes the viewer through a nighttime hotspot filled with neon lights and dark, alluring bars, with clever choreography and fun piece-to-camera moments.  Reflecting on the process of making the video, Casey says “We’ve gone all out with this video and I think it’s easily the most expensive clip I’ve shot to date – but we wanted to make sure this one was pretty special.  My wife Michelle is a creative genius and the whole concept for this video has been her baby.  Colin Jeffs from Ten of Swords Media has brought it to life.  We found this incredible venue in Brisbane called Smoked Garage which is a multi-level event space where each floor has a completely different look to it, so it was the perfect place to shoot.  The concept is that it’s one big party and everything has been made to look like it was shot in one take within the venue, culminating in a big high energy finale out in the side street at the end.”
 

Despite the global pandemic setback, 2020 was an epic year for Casey Barnes, seeing him nominated for ARIA’s Country Album Of The Year with his ARIA #1 Australian Country Album, Town Of A Million Dreams.  And 2021 is set to be even bigger with Casey already lapping up four Golden Guitar nominations (2021 Toyota Album of the Year, Contemporary Country Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Vocal Collaboration of the Year), as he prepares to take his high octane live show around Australia to celebrate Come Turn Me On.  Fans can expect to see the country luminary’s consistently impressive vitality and killer performance chops on full display, with a massive set including all of his chart-topping hits.  Casey says, “I can’t wait to add Come Turn Me On into the set for all our upcoming shows!  We’ve actually created a brand new live show for 2021, and it’s great to finally see some major festivals and events coming back after the pandemic, which we’re thrilled to be playing at in the weeks and months to come.”

Come Turn Me On is out now.

Andy Keels

Andy Keels got started with singing and writing music when he was in secondary school and ever since he never missed the opportunity to improve and perform whenever he could. Inspired by representatives of many different genres like Boys to Men, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, and songwriter and producer Max Martin (NSYNC), Andy made a decision on how exactly he wants to sound like and we love it.

Releasing “Dead To Me” off his upcoming EP as the first one to make the right first impression we hope that the rest of the tracklist won’t differ much and will burst a range of indie/pop/rock influences with raw and rocky undertones as “Dead To Me” does. Nonetheless, this song is forming a flawless, ingenious artistic statement by someone who has clearly been working hard in bringing his craft closer to impeccability.It may safely be said that it is not an easy job to make any kind of music sound this fresh and perfect nowadays.

Classy and Simply Superb New Song from Gravity Castle


Indie Pop Duo Gravity Castle

Gravity Castle – ‘Different Than You’

Classy and Simply Superb New Song from Gravity Castle

What begins with soothing guitar followed by the distinctive voice of Oli Kersey from the Duo, Gravity Castle gives this a feeling of peace and acceptance in an instance.

 

Gravity Castle are Oli Kersey and Gabriel Glenhill released their first single, ‘I’m Sorry’ in early 2019.

 

Their most recent track, ‘Different Than You’ sparked my attention in a way not many tracks do.

‘Different Than You’ is somewhat controlled freedom that’s smooth and relaxing while remaining current and pop based.

The more I thought about it while reviewing this song, the more I realize what a real feat it is to these guys to write and produce such a prominent track.

 

While music in general during Covid 19 has seen an increased pace in tempo in pop music, Gravity Castle have taken the complete opposite in direction.

 

What makes ‘Different Than You’ so enticing, is the build up from something very simple, evolving both musically and lyrically. Crisp clear production with an underlying pad adding warmth and flow followed by the moving beats that shuffles the track into a slow groove. The bass of the song perfectly balanced adding the vital extra layer of depth.

 

Lyrically, ‘Different Than You’ encourages strength through the storm people face alongside each of our differences.  “I was told that it’s better to stand up in a storm, Then I’ll, Rediscover my fire I’ve had since I was born, I want more” are words in which are relatable to everyone, but what makes this song lyrically brilliant is from where it comes from in the verses. Simple and clever words indeed to reach us all exploding into a chorus of hope; and don’t we all need that right now!

 

Gravity Castle explain – “We live in challenging times. Times that put all our weaknesses and mistakes on full display in a digital world. Despite such hardships and in the midst of this war of opinions and debate, we’ve become less connected and compassionate as a people. Our new single, Different Than You, speaks directly to this. Unconditional love towards our neighbor is how we move forward. Combatting the weight of discrimination with acts of fellowship, kindness and selflessness. We must become unified in the acts of respect, kindness, inclusion and thoughtfulness towards one another if we are to ever removing the negative actions and emotions that plague our world today. With that said, we humbly share… ‘Different Than You’”

A classy, delicate and simply superb track by Gravity Castle.

Ed Roman’s New Single “Tomorrow Is Today” Is His Finest Yet

“The Buddha was once supposed to have said, ‘the trouble is you think you have time,” says chart-topping Canadian musician, Ed Roman. He describes his latest single, “Tomorrow Is Today” (MTS Records) as “the reflection of ‘act now’ in the living moment. Carpe Diem. Seize The Day!”

 

On Friday, September 4th, 2020, the award-winning singer-songwriter does just that, releasing the follow up to his #1 iTunes South Africa single, “Stronger.”

“Tomorrow Is Today” is being hailed by critics as Roman’s finest hour: “Ed has made possibly one of his best singles, if not his best..’Tomorrow Is Today’ finds Ed reaching new heights, exploring new territory, and as a result, producing one of the year’s best rock-based singles.”Jamsphere

 

Produced by Michael Jack and Ed Roman, “Tomorrow Is Today” is from Ed’s forthcoming album, A Recipe For Perpetual Spring.

 

“We have come to rely too heavily on the system not only for our protection but our moral direction and social salvation,” says Ed. “What we don’t realize, is that we are the system…Each one of us, in our own individual beauty and jagged complexity. What I have come to understand, after 50 years of spinning around this star, is the things we create in our living environment every day are the most important of all. They are the things that promote mental and emotional stamina. They have tenure and longevity in your living experience.”

 

He continues, “The most important thing is we act every day on our thoughts and our feelings. Struggle and learn from the creative process of failure. Spend less of your time with your head in your hand, phone in your face, and look forward to the horizon where every day new opportunity lies in wait. Your opportunity is already here.. there’s no point in waiting for tomorrow.. The planet is gonna keep on spinning whether were here or not.”

New Single from OldSkool Rockers skinsNbones Forever On


Single Cover

New Single from OldSkool Rockers skinsNbones Forever On

skinsNbones is a collaboration of Aussie muso’s featuring the powerhouse voice of Jason Kafoa, forming in December 2019. From diverse backgrounds and experience but all with a love of rock music.

Together we’ve created a sound all of our own, based around thumping rhythms, in your face brutal guitar and soaring melodies, sung with one of rock’s most dynamic voices. Keeping it simple, all feel and no frills. By sicking to this formula we’ve produced new 6 ball Aussie classic rock anthems which appeal to all generations. Our songs have meaningful and thought provoking lyrics written about real life issues that extend to social issues and the questions these issues raise.

One reason our logo is a “?” is skinsNbones like to raise questions and/or issues to get people to think, to question, to use their discernment, even with what we’re saying. Increasing awareness and perception, being able to discern what is and is not, is vital these days.

We are not about self promotion but the promotion of the issues our songs raise.

Using skinsNbones oldSkool rock with nuSkool roll.

 

About Forever On: 

Two things. skinsNbones songs rarely have 1 storyline.

1.   skinsNbones feel strongly about reducing stigma associated to mental dis-ease, or what Bones the lyricist calls “mental difference” and asks: “What would the world be like without mental difference?” 

Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Beethoven, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, we could go “Forever On”, all had mental dis-ease/difference. Without them thinking and seeing the world so differently where would we be? No E=mc^2! No understanding of electrical energy that we’re now only just using! and the art! Where would we be without such beauty?! Such inspiration! 

The world’s greatest minds had mental dis-ease/difference which is why they thought DIFFERENTLY, in ways others couldn’t even dream. The world would be very bland and backwards without mental dis-ease/difference. Plus, mental dis-ease/difference is linked to higher IQ and also helps develops a higher EQ, an ability to empathise & care. So, “What would the world be like without mental difference?” Without seeing “new views” from being “around the bend”? This song is an Ode to Mental Difference, to help change perception, to learn it has all-ways added beauty and greatness to the world, been a huge part of the progression of the world. Learning about, and embracing your difference, makes a difference.

2.   Keeping it short, the 2nd story is finding the inner light within Self, or from a higher Source, from tough experiences and using them to become more enlightened, a better person, fully accepting that mis-takes will be made, “wrongs”, that will be used to grow and not to put one’s Self down but help lift them up. Use “the rocks that tripped (you) up” as stepping stones for others. Use all ways to learn, grow and burn brighter and brighter in Spirit “Forever On”. skinsNbones promotes how beneficial Self growth is, especially from hard times. That becoming a better being, not a bitter being, is healthy for not just your Self but also the world around you.

Gutsy and Explosive Unforgettable New Music from Emme Lentino


New Music Release

Emme Lentino – ‘Some Other Girl’

Gutsy and Explosive Unforgettable New Music from Emme Lentino

Emme Lentino is one of the nicest people I’ve encountered. Born in USA and now residing in New Zealand, Emme has a long history in the music business and with each new music release, she just gets better and better; like a fine red wine. J

Her latest track due for release in October, shows real grit. An unforgettable explosive catchy upbeat love song about ‘Some Other Girl’ who ‘Had My Heart and You Threw It Away’ is a rather common crazy issue in relationships and while it seems from my review that perhaps it’s a depressing song; it’s not! By far.

“The song is about empowerment and not letting heartache stop you from thriving and also helping you to discover who you really are” say’s Emme.

Emme not only shows the grit and guts in her vocals but co-insides with a hard-hitting production that would get anyone fired up.

‘Some Other Girl’ is a fiery upbeat country-pop production recorded in London by Al Clay and lends itself to an array of possible versions; which for me, shows a great quality song in itself proving Emme’s song writing skills and capabilities of the highest calibre.

While the production of ‘Some Other Girl’ is great at it is, I would love to hear an acoustic version as well. Alongside perhaps a different approach to vocal performance in the verses with the voice super close to the mic with an almost angry sung/spoken attitude with less reverb. Don’t get me wrong, this production as a stand-alone is mind blowing, but when I can hear so much else in addition to what’s already there, I get excited.

Emme has also filmed a high-quality music video to co-inside with its release giving the visual element of the story line.

Whatever you do, don’t miss ‘Some Other Girl’ when it’s released on October 2nd on all major streaming platforms.
