Ambient Artist Sun Uther Wahn reaches #1 on charts with new single “Four”

Sun Uther Wahn "Four"

From Mississippi to the world…

Emerging from Mississippi, the latest master of ambient music Sun Uther Wahn has unleashed his latest project “Four” a chilling track charged with an eclectic blend of sound elements and haunting vocals that linger on for days. A cutting-edge artist prepped for global domination, Sun Uther Wahn is positioned to lead music fans through uncharted territory with a revolutionary sound and style not seen since the arrival of music legend Brian Eno in the early 70s. Sun Uther Wahn, who has ventured away from the sharply defined roots of blues, country, and rock & roll, gives fans insight into many of these influences and so much more through his unique composition technique.

 

“Four” not only provides a framework for the elaborate use of instrumentals and special effects to create a distinct sound, but it all functions as a stimulating soundtrack against the backdrop of a forward-thinking culture that is freely testing the boundaries of predetermined industry standards; embarking on their own journey to pioneer imaginative sounds. No longer are artists being pigeonholed into one specific genre. The beauty of ambient music, as expressed in Sun Uther Wahn’s latest production is the fact that it is all-encompassing, truly demonstrating the power of an artist to interpret the aesthetics in the world around them and translate those discoveries into pertinent content that not only galvanizes the global spirit, but also entertains.

Sun Uther Wahn’s performance on “Four” is far beyond intriguing considering his southern roots where country music, and rock & roll are almost a way of life. Even on a contemporary scale, his music is far-reaching and undoubtedly innovative. He utilizes a multitude of instrumentals and electronic elements to deliver a futuristic sound. From distorted rock vocals, to deep chilling echos, the song is a vivid illustration reminiscent of Enya’s sound during the rise of new age and Celtic influences.

“Four” is a slow-tempo track with a mellow feel and music fans looking for a good chill-out vibe will want to keep this one handy. Sun Uther Wahn’s vocals are dark and distorted but have a retro rock vibe that might be likened to that of John Lennon. Though the feel of the song is mysterious, the combination of sounds are so intricately designed that it provides an entertaining listen and a pleasant non-conformist energy.

Storm Williams who goes by the moniker Sun Uther Wahn is a Mississippi native who has indeed broken the stereotypical mold of southern musicians. Citing influences such as Brian Eno, Daft Punk, and the Beatles, he is a pioneer on the current sound-stage. Known for “channeling a new vibe for the human tribe”, his latest album release ‘Jedi Mind Music’ has catapulted him to the #1 spot on Reverbnation. Learn more about the man behind the music on the Official Sun Uther Wahn Website.

“Don’t Look At Me” the latest song from the Rockin45s surges the charts


TheRockin45sNot Afraid to Say it…

There are often words between men and women that remain unspoken. These moments between the lines can lead to misunderstandings and conflict through which relationships are often eroded. The latest single from Farmingville, New York’s favorite party band the Rockin45s titled “Don’t Look At Me” challenges the notion that love conquers all. In fact, the band candidly provides a glimpse into the male psyche while exploring the feelings and emotions behind unrequited love.

Known for cranking up parties with their classic covers, the Rockin45s have gifted fans with a fresh, original piece that speaks volumes about the band’s extensive musical scope. While the band often performs up-beat, high-energy songs, “Don’t Look At Me” carries a more mellow tune for listeners to enjoy. The song conveys as a slow-tempo rock single but, it still emanates the vivacious spirit that the band has grown affectionately known for throughout the years. For music fans, the lyrical composition of the song will be a refreshing break away from the often frivolous, fluff of mainstream pop. The band succeeds in not only delivering an agreeable track but also provides a mindful observation of themes that hit closest to home; they do so in a clever manner.

Alongside the band’s thick, and saucy music accompaniment, tough rock vocals reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen’s style,  yield a gritty expression of man’s inner-working to listeners. The hook “If it’s love, don’t look at me” makes a bold statement from the perspective of a person who may be loved but is not actually loving. The song is presented from a point of view that we, as socially constructed individuals are not often privy to. Encouraging men not to skirt around their feelings and challenging women to accept the reality that “he’s just not that into you” is an unabashed concept but painfully real. Certainly a band that thinks outside of the box, the Rockin45s possess a distinct quality and aptness for handling topics that many other artists elect not to. This is exciting news for music fans on the prowl for righteous, fun music, soul-stirring content, and nostalgic waltzes with irony and life’s subtleties.

Based in Farmingville, NY the Rockin45s are one of the most popular cover bands of our time. While not only smashing it up with award-winning classics, they have an extensive catalog of original hits available for yearning ears around the globe. Comprised of Matt Nappo on guitar, Mike Barone on drums, Bill Capozzi on bass, and Mike Scarione on vocals, the entertaining shock-rockers have garnered thousands of fans around the world.  Listen to more music from the Rockin45s on Reverbnation and for the latest information on tours and so much more check out their official website at www.therockin45s.com.

Music with a Message: Journey with L.A. based Singer- Songwriter Breanna Kennedy

Singer-Songwriter Breanna KennedyLeaving her heart on the soundstage

One of the most powerful ways to reach a captive audience is through music. Although it is a beloved pastime, music can also bring awareness to social issues that impact our lives with such enormity that they cannot simply be ignored. What is even more spectacular is when an artist, who as a vessel is able to share with fans an intended message while utilizing their inherently, artistic gifts.  An artist that has chosen to share her personal journey with fans is L.A. based singer-songwriter Breanna Kennedy.

Breanna recently released her single “She’s Falling”, an emotional song about her sister Destiny who took her life at the very, young age of 23. The song, now available on iTunes, is powerful and elicits a profound response towards a serious issue that touches many a person regardless of social, racial, religious, and economic boundaries. Kennedy not only demonstrates her tenacity and resilience  as a young musician, but she also courageously ventures where few artists dare. Musicians of this variety reach within their own inner-workings to share with fans their personal experiences. It is these experiences that enable such musical geniuses to influence, inspire, and bring awareness to the issues that affect humankind.

Although Breanna Kennedy is a youthful 21 years old, much like singer-songwriter Adele, her sound is well beyond her years . The remarkable fact is that both artists effectively deliver deeply rooted songwriting and soulful vocals in a contemporary framework while touching fans across multiple age groups. “She’s Falling” consists of highly advanced songwriting and storytelling that is not only intensely personal, but well crafted.

The song has an acoustic feel with an Americana ambiance intertwined with Breanna’s smooth vocals. Though the lyrical content of the song is emotionally heavy, the musical accompaniment is actually scored in an uptempo manner with some dynamic transitions which work effectively to convey the overall theme of “She’s Falling”.  Breanna approached the song in such a way that it inspires listeners to have a heightened awareness while also paying tribute to her own sister, making an extremely personal connection with fans.

“She’s Falling” is a song that really hits home as it is a breathtaking snapshot into the many experiences that often influence and inspire artists along their musical walks. What is even more incredible is the fact that a young artist is willing to open up her heart and share this experience with the world. It is an act that is to be commended, respected, and most definitely appreciated.

According to the CDC, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for youth and young adults ages 10-24; these startling statistics absolutely cannot be ignored. Help Breanna Kennedy share her message of inspiration and awareness with the world by supporting her album project on Indiegogo.

Seattle band Whiskey N’ Rye brings back the classic American spirit with their self-titled debut album release: ‘Whiskey N’ Rye

                                                                           

Music Revolutions, Sound Evolutions

Whiskey N' RyeConsidering the impact of music in our lives, we are reminded that there are bands that make music, and there are bands that inspire cultural revolutions. Some bands take the stage for a fleeting moment, perhaps we recall their one or two chart topping hits, but we might be unable to recall their name. The fact is that when an artist puts their heart and soul into their music, it shows, their music is powerful, and their records are passed down from generation to generation. Their sound provokes a response, their words have depth, and their stage presence commands attention. Bands of this caliber are a rarity within the modern music scene but, they do exist and are making their way to the front and center-stage.

Emerging with an allure that has not been seen since the early ages of rock,  Seattle band Whiskey N’ Rye has unleashed their self-titled album ‘Whiskey N’ Rye’. As one of the most powerful releases of 2014, the album is an inventive production that bridges the elements of classic rock styles with contemporary American insight and artistic brilliance. Generally, when listening to a new album, there might be two or three tracks that really stand out and capture a listener’s interest. This is definitely not the case with ‘Whiskey N’ Rye’; the entire album conveys each and every song with resounding energy. There are times when artists opt to tell stories that are directly related to their personal experiences, making an album a little too inward and foreign from the listeners’ perspectives. This particular album does the exact opposite by telling a story that brings listeners into the experience by establishing an authentic context that is not only all-encompassing but highly relevant.

The band’s style, which is composed of blues, rock, and Americana elements is present throughout each track on the album giving it a signature sound. The compilation works masterfully to deliver varied sounds and flavor, a demonstration of the band’s musically diverse background and stylistic expertise. The album which was written by singer-songwriter Philip Lindholm consists of 10 rigorously composed pieces that incorporate a myriad of musical techniques, styles, and themes that work together in a cohesive manner to deliver an enjoyable listening experience.

Although all of the tracks on ‘Whiskey N’ Rye’ deliver their own rush of sound, there are a few that really stand out with remarkable distinction. The band opens up with “Bootlegger” an energetic rock song that is reminiscent of Lynyrd Skynrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama”; the song emanates a strong traditional American vibe with down-home harmonica action and guitar play. The band changes up the vibe on the album with some slower tempo tracks such as “Until the End” and ” The Open Road”, a legendary example of thoughtful storytelling through songwriting.

Another track that really stands out is “Rebel Man, Pt. 1” an artistically composed piano solo that tells a story all of its own without the use of a vocalist. The inclusion of this track functions well to demonstrate the bands quality and skill as avid instrumentalists. Behind “Rebel Man, Pt. 1″ is a dynamic rock piece named Rebel, Man, Pt. 2” which has a stronger guitar focus as well as lead male, female, and background vocalists. Lyrically speaking, “Rebel Man, Pt.2” is one of the most profound tracks included on the record and it will definitely resonate with fans; it has an unusual chilling effect that lingers on after the song concludes.

Whiskey N’ Rye’s debut release of their self-titled album is bound to be one of the most notable undertakings of 2014. The album is a unique blend of various rock elements from earlier influences combined with contemporary stylistics making it an all-around phenomenal music find. Though each track on the album displays different aspects of rock, blues, and Americana styles; the band has in fact managed to deliver a striking sound.

Word on the street is that this band puts on one amazing live show; so of course we had to take a peek. Check out this really awesome video of Whiskey N’ Rye performing live.

Hailing from Seattle, Washington, Whiskey N’ Rye consists of band members Philip Lindholm, Colin McLaurin, Josh Tvrdy, Nolan Watt, and Marco Longo. Their style can be described as Americana, Roots-Rock, capturing the depth of American tradition and spirit through their music. Having nailed down the top spot for Roots-Rock on Reverbnation, the ban formed in 2013 and continues to do some serious damage with their unparalleled sound. The band’s polished sound comes as no surprise considering three of its members graduated from the world-renowned Berklee School of Music. On a steady upward journey, the band has no plans of stopping and is currently touring sharing their deeply rooted sound with adoring fans.  Hopefully you are lucky enough to catch these born stars live as they are known for lighting up the stage, in the meantime keep up with their latest music, news, and upcoming appearances on the band’s official website www.whiskeynrye.com.
