Through her latest track she welcomes fans new and old into her radiant world with finesse and charm.

Having already been deemed an international icon in the Afro-European music scene, Bright’s latest release is a glimpse into the massive powerhouse whose music is drawn from her personal journey. Virginia shares with fans, a heartfelt look into self-discovery through “Coz You Are”. Although the song carries a light and breathless tune, Bright said that the song expresses the discovery of oneself and beauty through the eyes of another. She describes the song as being about “Unconditional love-the whole you, mind, body, and soul..where life is all like a big rainbow full of color.” She said “then is when I understood we are all one.”  The song’s lyrics truly do express the subtle nuances of self-actualization in a positive and energetic way.

“Never Ending” The New Single from Franklin Manor

Franklin Manor Never Ending SingleThe single is “Never Ending” but, he is just beginning…

While it seems that modern popular music has reached a plateau with regards to innovation, leaving a lackluster residue once any novelty has faded, there are however, few artists that are able to develop progressive, cutting-edge music. The ability to utilize select elements from various genres to create a one-of-a-kind sound is exemplary of the evolution that has occurred over the last decades in music; where genres are not defined by hard boundaries and do not often fall into the categories that have been previously recognized.

One such artist that has successfully masaterminded a groundbreaking sound for the next wave of millennium music lovers is singer, composer, and producer Franklin Manor. Keen to the flavor of the new music fan, he enlists the unique components required to appeal to listeners who have outgrown mainstream productions, but are not committed staunchly to embracing a single genre.

Mixing it Up

Last year we were introduced to music remixes such as Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” featuring rapper Nelly and who can forget the 2007 release of “Apologize” from One Republic and producer Timbaland?  Both songs utilized a blend of musical elements to create a popular sound that crossed over into different genres while collectively capturing millions of spins in multiple markets.  Franklin Manor’s latest release “Never Ending” is the perfect example of just how original up and coming artists need to be in order to have staying power and gain a captive audience. The song playfully ventures outside the frontier of alternative music while still holding on to some of the genre’s distinctive conventions.

“Never Ending” is an up-tempo track with solid rock vocals while maintaining the instrumental components of an experimental dance composition.  The song fades in with a slow intro and lingering piano chords but quickly builds into a high-energy burst of artistic adventure. Franklin Manor presents rebellious edge that cuts with great depth through the use of progressive guitars, hard drums and some electronic vocal play. He delivers intense energy throughout the breadth of the song but, the single appropriately drifts out into a slow fade brining the listener down from an insanely, untamed ride.

The songwriting in “Never Ending” yields remarkable characteristics to include socially conscious yet, memorable verses and a chant-worthy chorus. To describe Franklin Manor’s songwriting as skillful would certainly not do him any justice. When we talk about the Independent Artist and the alternatives to mainstream music, we are often conditioned to seek the antithesis of pop culture however it takes a gifted songwriter to develop meaningful content and deliver it in such a way that it is widely accepted beyond the underground as Franklin Manor has done.

Based in Los Angeles, California Franklin Manor is scheduled to release his upcoming album Motive; keep an ear to the street and in the meantime, become a Franklin Manor fan on Facebook and get the latest scoop.

Starstruck with UK Singer Songwriter & Musician Arron Brown

Singer Songwriter Arron BrownElectronic Pop artist Arron Brown from the UK recently dropped his EP Think of You. Compared to acts such as Owl City and Blink 182, Arron’s infectiously melodic sound is gaining strength across the globe. His newest project is the culmination of a gifted vocalist, exceptionally talented musician, and heartfelt songwriter.

The title track of the EP Think of You is a mellow love song placed over a fun-loving electronic dance track with an upbeat pop feel. Brown’s vocals are as smooth as warm honey drizzled over this ode to lost love. The song’s chorus transitions into an upbeat hook and then into a down-tempo versus creating a dynamic wave of sound. Lightly synthesized instrumentals grace the track with an ample signature while not overpowering Brown’s performance. The single has been well received by adoring fans who are undoubtedly growing in numbers with each spin in the virtual world of sound.

Think of You demonstrates Arron Brown’s songwriting ability, which is beyond extraordinary.  Brown who has performed cover songs YouTube has truly fashioned his own unique voice as an artist; a voice that is being heard loud and clear across the musical landscape. ‘Miss You’, another highly acclaimed single from Think of You expresses Brown’s craft as a lyricist from the heart. The song’s lyrics are not only composed in a crafty manner but they are full of sentiment and depth.

Arron Brown treats fans to a melodic track called “StarGazing” follows a similar tempo expression as “Miss You” but it breaks away into a lengthy piano solo half way through the song and then into an epic fade. It is refreshing to see a young artist who is able to create such a beautifully produced track and a well thought out presentation throughout the entire EP.

While, Arron Brown, may be a self-proclaimed “star gazer”, his tunes have us totally starstruck and we cannot wait to hear what he comes up with next. Listen to more from UK singer-songwriter Arron Brown on SoundCloud. Purchase a copy of Arron’s EP Think of You on Bandcamp.
