In this week’s fashionably loud file we checked in with Brazilian band Universo. Founded by producer and composer Leo Bor, Universo’s latest album offers listeners fusion of sounds to include pop rock, rock, metal, R&B, and so much more. The band consists of Leo Bor on both electric and acoustic guitars, keyboard, drums, and bass, and Jack and Meika on male and female lead vocals, and finally Dell and Rafa in live performances. The well-crafted production behind each flawless arrangement leaves listeners feeling inspired. Songs such as “Voce Pode Tentar” are refreshingly vibrant and awaken fans with an upbeat tempo and strong lyrical content. As an indie group, Universo has a strong focus on delivering music in it’s truest, original form unlike many manufactured mainstream groups.
Leo Bor, who describes hard rock and classical genres as being just some of his influences, adds R&B sounds for fans in songs “Eu Acredito” and “Altar” which are reminiscent of earlier Latin R&B sensation and quintet Barrio Boyzz. Fans who enjoy a diverse assortment of music genres will be pleasantly surprised with the package that Universo delivers, sealed with perfection. True to the band’s name, their music is indeed Universal and reaching audiences on an international scale. Successfully crossing boundaries, and genres, Universo leaves no stone unturned.

Navi Singh, New York Singer, Songwriter, & Composer
On our most recent quest for new music we uncovered New York’s own multi-talented singer and songwriter Navi Singh. An accomplished composer, Navi is also trained in classical music and got his start in writing while attending college. Singh is not only an established performer making appearances all along the East Coast but his musical compositions have been featured in films and television. He has a growing fan base and has performed at numerous New York City nightspots.
Singh’s album Runaway Sunshine, is slated to be released this winter and acoustic folk fans are likely to be in for quite a musical treat. One fan favorite is the song “One Taste of Sweet Love” for which Singh delivers a strong acoustic performance and lyrically sound vocals. The song lyrics not only evoke emotion but speak volumes about the depth of Singh’s creativity. There is no word yet on if the song will be included in his upcoming album; but it is certainly worth adding to your digital collection. Singh successfully bridges the gap between classical and popular music, offering a traditional style of folk music with a modern twist. He has earned local success with his previous self-produced, self-released EP, Pilot, and with his next project on the horizon, Navi Singh is a singer-songwriter on the rise. Having the ability to play multiple instruments in combination with his well-crafted songwriting skills, Singh has proven to be a raw, uncut, unplugged talent. We are looking forward to hearing more from this talented artist and performer.
