Caitlin Min Fa Delivers Inspirational Emotive Single, ‘Work In Progress’

Following her first appearance on the blog with debut single, ‘Younger Self’, which generated over 10K streams on Spotify alone, Young Australian singer/songwriter CAITLIN MIN FA makes a return with second single, ‘Work In Progress,’ a power ballad, representing the motions of life and the process of figuring out oneself.

The heartfelt, yet powerful intensity, oozes out vocally craving and encouraging endeavours. The song is suited with sentimental lyrics and reverberating tones, in the hope that it reminds you to be kind to yourself and just keep powering through uncertain times.

“Everybody is a work in progress … we don’t have to have it all figured out yet. Just know that everything is unfolding, you’re on your way and you’re moving forward” Caitlin explains. “Your time is coming so trust the path, trust the process and trust the season”.

‘Work In Progress’ was released over the weekend (27th March) on your preferred music platform…check it out below…

EP Review: 034 – Oloye Coldman

Although it’s only five tracks long, OLOYE COLDMAN‘s latest EP, ‘034’ features 16 (yes,16!) artists contributing to a spectrum of sound where western urban influences meets the gleeful presence of the Motherland (more specifically, Nigeria).

Here in this set, you’ll experience the real vibrancy on a modern take of Igbo music, working with the sweet runs of piano keys and trumpet, giving a real bluesy jazz feel (listen to ‘Why E Be’), straight up chilled hip-hop/R&B trap effort (in ‘What’) to old school-hip-hop-inspired sound with vocals giving a rich motherland feel (listen to concluding track, ‘Gone’).

In this bio, Oloye described his EP as ‘the first of its kind in Nigeria’ – he’s not wrong – as this mini set is bursting with massive sounds which will leave lasting impression. Have a listen to the EP below…

I AM BORN’s Visuals For Track, ‘Like The Pain’ Offers Hope After Despair

Stacey Bournes, otherwise known as I AM BORN, has unveiled stunning visuals for track, ‘Like The Pain’. Co-director Natalia Nunn, I AM BORN and Blake Cyrier who was the main DP for the project, wanted to depict a tale of victory and a journey to peace; finding a place of self-love, balance and a healthy self-expression.

With so many of us struggling with mental health at this time, they wanted to bring hope by illustrating the fact that it’s possible to reverse any downward spiral we may find ourselves in and re-imagine life in any way we choose, as long as we don’t give up.

Shot in LA, the video features a selection of talented artists that I AM BORN greatly admires and has been incredibly inspired by. Danielle Acoff (who was featured in Michael Jackson’s last music video for,’ A Place With No Name’), Darren Tait and Natalya Oliver were dancers in the film, with Roy Sadakane and Justin Possenti providing cinematic contributions.

‘Like The Pain’ was written by I AM BORN over ten years ago as a means of catharsis and is part of a collection of work she affectionately calls ‘The Identity of Stacey Bournes’, which consists of hundreds of songs that helped her cope with the highs and lows she experienced whilst living what she thought would be her dream life as a model.

Originally an indie/experimental offering, ‘Like The Pain’ was given a makeover by producer Obsidian Cane, who injected a gutsy UKG drive with soulful R&B undertones. I AM BORN thoroughly enjoyed working on the track as she danced so much during the process. The single was featured on Obsidian Cane’s debut EP titled Reset, released on his label, Wicked Ghost Music back in August.

I AM BORN is also currently working with producers, musicians and DJ’s in different genres on a number of projects taken from the ‘IDofSB’ slated for release in the New year.

‘Like The Pain’ is now available on all download and streaming sites. Check out the official video for the single below…

Song of the Day: Write Pages – Wish Master

WISH MASTER‘s single ‘Write Pages’, takes things to a Dickensian level, as the viewer is presented with a snapshot into the Bristol emcee’s past, present and future.

With a concept reminiscent of the classic novel A Christmas Carol, you hear Wish’s depth and artistry in his lyricism, which has helped support his rise in prominence over the past few years.

Supported with a life journeying video showing his progression from a boy to a man, Wish Master flows poetically over a flute-laden head-nodder produced by Van Dam. ‘Write Pages’ delivers a wholesome and uplifting message around being ‘the author of his own life’.

Filmed in part at the world famous university in his home town of Bristol, the Patch Up productions-directed video paints a vivid picture of Wish recreating some of the most memorable stages in his life. From a child to teenager to his present state and even a flash forward to Wish in a stately setting.

Released to coincide with Black History Month, this song ‘Write Pages’ aims to show how dedication is needed to reach your goals, inspiring others to see how anything is possible if you focus and put your mind to it!
