Listen To Joeyglo’s New Single, ‘Lovely Lady’

Hailing from Nashville, singer-songwriter, producer, and audio engineer JOEYGLO shares his new single ‘Lovely Lady,’ which references the importance of making women feel validated, worthy and enough.

Although women are breaking boundaries all the time, Joeyglo says, “This world would be nothing without a woman or a girl.” “Lovely Lady” represents the prominence of well-deserved women. “The song is about the first moment the protagonist meets a woman and just has to know every little detail about who she is and wants to spend every waking moment with this special human,”

While blending genres and giving a fresh sound to the electronic-pop and hip-hop scenes, the track drew inspiration from “the givers of life,” says Joeyglo. “I wrote this song to be fun and flirtatious while not making women feel sexualized or unappreciated for who they really are as people,”

In Joeyglo’s career, his influences have had a powerful impact on his creativity and have even drawn comparisons to Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, and Jeff Buckley. The style and sound of his storytelling translated into lyrics are on the rise as he furthers himself in the limelight as an artist.

‘Lovely Lady’ was released last Friday (9th September) for your pleasure. Have a listen below…

Art Block Shares Touching Single, ‘Brother’

I first heard the single, ‘Brother’ on Instagram and the heart-wrenching acoustic arrangements immediately touched my soul (which is a rare occasion!) I had to reach out to the person behind the beautiful single, East London-based folk singer/songwriter ART BLOCK and expressed my admiration for his latest offering and in turn, he submitted his single.

So I’m absolutely delighted to share ‘Brother’ with you guys, among a pool of other talented newcomers here on NEW LEASE MUSIC.

Produced by Ian Barter, who recently produced Gabrielle’s covers album, ‘Do It Again’, piano-led ‘Brother’ heavily possesses Art’s main influences, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley, where I get a sense that this amazing storyteller narratives a story of betrayal, through his magically delicate vocal performance.

‘Brother’ is out now on all good download/streaming sites…why not check out the video for the single below…

Song of the Day: The River – Jasper’s Riddle

JASPER RIDDLE‘s journey to music is something even Hollywood would bulk at. After beginning his studies to become a brain surgeon, he switched to his current vocation, that of heart surgeon…all the while continuing to record as both a Jeff Buckley-influenced acoustic singer songwriter…and a classical composer…and an artist…and a novelist. His debut release reflects his chameleon-like ability to soak up what is happening around him and to interpret it in his own unique way, with elements of rock, neo-soul and even flamenco heralding the arrival of a true 21st Century polymath.

JASPER RIDDLE is Lukas Zeickner, a Manchester-based medical student from a Nigerian background, comfortable singing in English, Edo or Spanish. The concept of JASPER RIDDLE was to record each track as its own self-contained story, including its own artwork, taking you on a journey through different styles and narratives, each combining to become a storybook.

Influenced by beacons of talent from across the world, from Aretha Franklin to Fela Kuti to Estas Tonne, each offering subtle imprints into his own sound. With an overarching love of Schubert, his fascination for science as well as the Arts has led to Lukas performing and producing all his own music, not to mention creating the accompanying artwork and a side-line in publishing novellas. The next time you say to yourself that you haven’t got time to do something, remember to give Jasper’s Riddle a listen and remind yourself that anything is possible!

Song of the Day: I Hate To See You This Way – Van Bellman

If you’re a fan of real gritty rock music with a kick of funk, well Zac Taylor – aka –  VAN BELLMAN‘s first single, ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ may well be your new favourite.

The theme of ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ focuses on the pain of watching someone you love go down a dark road, witnessing them self-destruct. “It means a lot to me as both a lyrical and sonic story,” said Taylor, who also produced the track at the legendary Mission Sound Studios in Brooklyn. With influences from Kurt Cobain to Jeff Buckley,  Taylor’s offering possesses the accusatory growl of the chorus which instantly pulls you into the sensitive moments in between the roars.

The Brooklyn-based musician, who once played the guitar with multi-platinum band American Authors, is shaping to be a respected collaborator and songwriter in the NYC music scene.
So sure to look out for VAN BELLMAN as he comes at you with boisterous tunes with hard-hitting lyrics one by one….
