Haneri’s Music Video for “Burning Up”

Haneri is sharing with our listeners her latest “Buring Up” singles music video.  Haneri is venturing well into the pop arena with this single.  The music has a 1980’s style to it and her voice comes through nice and clear, with just a bit of smokiness to it, which makes for a great listening experience.  The song takes on a serious message about abusive relationships, but wraps it up in a catchy rhythm that captures the listeners attention.  Ryan Tan directed the video for Haneri which she is also the lead in.  The video takes her and the watcher on a journey from her apartment through the city discovering that some things aren’t always what they seem.  Very well done all the way around and I can’t wait to see what else Haneri shares.  Here’s “Burning Up” Haneri’s music video through her YouTube channel for you to enjoy – Richard:

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:

Emma Ballantine Single “Through Your Eyes”

Emma Ballantine is sharing with us a project she began with her singing/songwriting abilities.  This project is entitled Somebody’s Story, which is also her latest EP title.  The project is taking life stories that individuals have told her and she is putting them to song.  The single she is sharing with us today is “Through Your Eyes”, which is a story about a 14 year old that has autism.  If you have been listening to our podcasts for a while you will now this, but for newer listeners, the world of autism hits my family close to home with my Son being on the autism spectrum with aspergers.  The single is an emotional ballad for anyone (parent, sibling, or other loved one) that has experienced autism in their family.  The EP Somebody’s Story is available and you can get it from your digital vendor of choice.  One such vendor is iTunes where it has reached the #4 slot for the singer/songwriter charts.  Take a moment to listen to Emma Ballantine’s “Through Your Eyes” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Julia Carlucci’ Music Video for “Take Me Down”

Julia Carlucci is wanting our listeners to enjoy her music video for “Take Me Down”.  “Take Me Down” has a nice bass beat that fits well with Julia’s lower range/smokey voice.  It’s not a rough smokey voice, but a smooth smokey voice that one usually has that sings in a lower register.  Loved the brass during the bridge between the verses.  Then during the latter part of the single there is a clapping section that for me did a call back to Spiderbait’s “Black Betty” and how it was structured.  The music video it self is pretty much a straight up performance video, but it is really clean and I enjoyed how they went to the specific sections of the band when they were being spotlighted during the song.  Here’s Julia Carlucci’s music video for “Take Me Down” – Richard:

Bianca Rose’s Music Video for “Because of Love”

Bianca Rose is sharing with the ComicPop listeners her single “Because of Love”, that features Cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson.  “Because of Love” is a romantic ballad that steers you through love and when the Cello comes in it brings the single to a new height.  I would love to just have Bianca and Ayanna do an acoustic version of this song with just the two women and that is it, I think it would be beautiful.  The music video is directed with a classic clean look from the director.  Here’s Bianca Rose’s music video for “Because of Love” featuring Ayanna Witter-Johnson through Bianca’s YouTube channel – Richard:

Taylor Noelle’s Soulful Single “I Fall”

Taylor Noelle is sharing with our listeners her single “I Fall”.  She has a very nice sound with a clear alto range voice, which is spot lighted in “I Fall”.  If this single is an indication Taylor’s music will fall within that pop/country music.  It will appeal to both listeners really well.  I really enjoy hearing other instruments when I listen to music so the prominent us of the violin was really appreciated.  You can get this single and her other music with her EP Out of My System which you can find through your digital vendors.  Until then Taylor Noelle wants you to enjoy her single “I Fall” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Project Light Agency Logogold-complex

Gold Complex gives our listeners a chance to sample their sound with their music video “Backbone”, from their self-titled EP.  With “Backbone” the group is playing a fun light rhythm that is supplied by the trumpet and sax giving the single an R&B/Soul feel.  It’s really nice to see live instruments actually supplying the sound rather than electronic versions.  You even get to see these players in the music video that Gold Complex did for “Backbone”.  The video is split between a road trip and studio video.  During the studio segments they spotlight the trumpet and sax player.  If you are digging them be sure to support the group by downloading their self-titled EP – Gold Complex – from your digital content provider.  Until then take a moment and enjoy Gold Complex’ music video for their single “Backbone” through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Katie Buxton’s Single “You Flew”

Project Light Agency Logokatie

Katie Buxton is sharing with us today her single “You Flew”.  Katie has a nice strong and clear alto range voice.  Most singers want to have that higher voice, but I enjoy the lower range voices just as much.  “You Flew” is a ballad that talks about letting a loved one go, because of your love for him or her.  It’s hard to do but sometimes that is what it comes to.  The music video that was produced for this single is fairly simple, but effective.  I love the snow background while Katie is singing. You can get this single and others from her 2016 release on her EP From Songbirds from your digital vendors.  Here is Katie Buxton’s “You Flew” music video through Amplify Entertainment Group’s YouTube channel – Richard:

Laura Roy is sharing with our listeners her upbeat R&B feeling single “Don’t Chase”.  This single is from her self-titled EP which came out July 3rd.  The music video is an acoustical version and is song in an empty house, which gives it an interesting sound quality.  This setting doesn’t spotlight Laura’s voice very well, but you can still tell she has a very nice voice.  Check out her EP, but until then here is the Laura Roy’s acoustical music video for “Don’t Chase” through CBC Music’s YouTube channel – Richard:
