“9 Tattoos” is a fun song by Christopher Hawley. It has a great light hearted rhythm that brings a smile to my face, right out of the box. It is also, what Logan and I would consider, a story song, which we both love. The lyrics that Christopher sings progresses in a linear fashion. This single reminds for what Paul Simon did with “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”. It’s just a fun single. You probably heard Christopher’s music if you caught it spotlighted on The Good Guys and NFL AM. I definitely want to hear more from Christopher. See if you can stop yourself from groovin’ and singing with Christopher Hawley’s “9 Tattoos” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Planets is a group made up of Matthew Morgan, Christian Haberkern, and Tim Morgan. These gentlemen are sharing with our listeners the single “Reflections” from their upcoming EP Colors Alive. This EP was originally going to be a instrumental release, but as chance would happen the band got to know Rae Anna Beauford through their Facebook page and YouTube and began working with her to be the vocalist for their EP. “Reflections” is a melodic thoughtful piece and with Rae’s smoky voice it all comes together in smooth sounding single.

Brian Fitzy is bring us some R&B with his single “No Idea”. Brian has a voice that is in the higher register and it fits well with the upbeat rhythm of this single. When you listen to it you kind of get a Hall & Oates feel minus the Oates. With his higher voice and the upbeat rhythm it gives the single a bright airy feel to it. Interested in what else Brain will release in the future. Here’s Brian Fitzy’ “No Idea” through SoundCloud – Richard:
Nozart is back and this time they are sharing with our listeners their single “Orphanage”. For fans of songs that are story based, which Logan and I are, “Orphanage” is made for you. The opening to this single itself feels like you are opening a book and getting ready to read a story. The simple rhythm and instruments give this single a fairy tale aspect. The vocals come through nice and clear and add to the story quality. It is a slower song, but the quality overcomes that. We are choosing to show the music video for “Orphanage” from Nozart’s YouTube channel. One because it is an animated video and we love animation here and two the animation for the music video makes it feel like you are reading a Neil Gaiman story made by Tim Burton. Props to Noah Kellman on a finely done song and music video. Here’s Nozart’s “Orphanage” music video – Richard:
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:
Narrow Waves wants you to catch their wave with their single “Hear Me Out”. This single takes the folk sound and makes it hyper with a fast moving fun beat. This is one where, for me, the instrumentals take the lead getting the listener pulled into the song and then you take in the lyrics. The group has released their EP later this year entitled Letters From Another State so be sure to go to your digital vendor of choice to support them. Until then take a moment and get jacked up with Narrow Waves’ “Hear Me Out” through SoundCloud – Richard:
23rd Hour is made up of the duo Sherry-Lynn Lee and George Paolini and they are sharing with us their music video “Hypothetically”. The single itself is a cross between lounge room and western elements. Sherry-Lynn has this powerful voice that comes in and the two mix it well with George’s softer lower voice and the way they sing it reminds you of a lounge room atmosphere or club even. The instrumentals are acoustical and then one instrument that sways the listener into the western genre is the steel guitar. The music video itself is an in studio filming of the two singing “Hypothetically” and spotlights the two individually and also that steel guitar I mentioned. If to enjoy a more relaxed pace of life here’s 23rd Hour’s “Hypothetically” music video, through their YouTube channel, and keep a look out for their album Perfect Strangers slated to come out later this month – Richard:
Janet Blair gives our listeners a chance to check out her single “Eternity Grows”. With this single Janet falls what I would say is a Pop/Folk music style. I enjoy how the piano is playing staccato for the verse. For me when music is played that way it makes me want to get into the music and have fun. When Janet hits the chorus the single takes on a fullness that has the listener taking off and soaring. I’m interested in what else she has planned. Have fun with Janet Blair’s “Eternity Grows” through SoundCloud – Richard:
