Star Trek Discovery Trailer

For all our Star Trek fans and science fiction fans in general here’s the latest trailer for Star Trek Discovery.  CBS All Access falls in the same category as the Netflix series that Marvel has on that platform.  We, as a family, have chosen not to do the multi-platforms and just hope they shows will eventually hit Blu-ray/DVD.  But for all of you that get to watch it when it hits have fun.  Thanks to the Star Trek YouTube channel for the following trailer:

Rebecca Raw’s Single “Connection”

Rebecca Raw has just released her EP Deep Within and she wants to share with our listeners her single “Connection” from the EP.  Rebecca has a very nice clear voice that she spotlights in this single well.  The style for “Connection” is, to me, a pop/folk feel.  The build-up she has in “Connection” hits right on point, almost like a wave washing over you and then she slows it back down to finish the single.  I enjoyed this single and can’t wait to her what else she has on her EP.  So be sure to check your digital vendor of choice to look for her EP Deep Within.  Until then here’s Rebecca Raw’s single “Connection” through SoundCloud for you to enjoy – Richard:

The Gin Pennies Deliver with Single “Film Noir”

Are you ready to jump into a time machine?  The Gin Pennies single “Film Noir” captures the time period beautifully.  The horns come in at the beginning and then you have Shanelle Lewis’ voice come in to seal the deal.  Along with the horns The Gin Pennies bring out the stringed instruments that add to the atmosphere of the single.  If you love film noir or that time period you will love this single.  Here’s The Gin Pennies’ “Film Noir” music video through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Jerome Bell’s Single “Burn Easy”

Jerome Bell is wanting our listeners to “Burn Easy” with his latest single.  From the very first notes you know this single has an island influence.  Jerome has this smooth low range that flows over the listener.  With the island music and its timbre it is fun blending you voice with the  instruments and not be over taken by the instruments.  Jerome goes right to that edge with this piece, but doesn’t cross it.  You can still distinguish the lyrics as the chorus is playing, but it is something that any artist like Jerome has to watch out for with their lower voice range.  “Burn Easy” itself is one to take with you that can be used to set a mood, were the couple described in the song are taking it slow so neither one of them gets burned.  Many can relate to this and even though a summer fling might be fun, taking it slow might be more fulfilling in the long run.  Here’s Jerome Bell’s “Burn Easy” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Cover Reveal for Lauren Lynne’s “The Recalcitrant Project”

Lauren Lynne, through Wyvern’s Peak Publishing, has revealed her cover for her upcoming novel The Recalcitrant Project.  Very cool cover it works for me.  As you can see the book will be dropping later this month, but we have an extra bonus for our listeners.  Lauren was kind enough to do a pre-pub visit with us about The Recalcitrant Project and it will be up the week before the actual release of the novel.  So keep an eye on your feeds, that podcast will be released on May 19.  Thanks to Lauren Lynne and Wyvern’s Peak Publishing for allowing us to be a part of the release and remember to order your copy as soon as it available – Richard

Lovely.The.Band’s Lyric Video for “Broken”

With “Broken” Lovely.The.Band is letting everyone know they are here.  They are sharing with us their Lyric Video for “Broken” which feels like a music video and if you take out the lyrics from the screen it is a music video, because most lyric videos key on the lyrics, but with this one it gives you movement behind it.  The single “Broken” is a nice clean pop single that, if I remember right, is similar to One Republic’s style on “All the Right Moves”.  Very catchy rhythm and clear vocals make this one fun to listen to.  So know it’s your turn to take a listen to Lovely.The.Band’s lyric video for “Broken” – Richard:
