Song of the Day: 90s Baby – Ria Marie

Full of soulful pop melodies and mellow R&B beats, RIA MARIE‘s single, ’90s Baby’ is steeped in nostalgia – bringing up a wealth of unmistakable 90s references. Certain to spark childhood memories, Ria puts a nostalgic spin on a classic love song with her intimate vocals.

To say that singing is in her blood would be an understatement. A distant relative of the trailblazing Carter Family and the daughter of a singing prodigy associated with musical legends such as Whitney Houston and Bob Marley, Ria has always had an undeniable passion for creating music.

Song of the Day: Fresh Paint – Andria Piperni

If you regularly pop by the blog, you may have come across Montreal singer/songwriter ANDRIA PIPERNI and her singles, ‘Above The Clouds’ and ‘Coming Home To You’, both possessing a jazz-tinged alternative fusion of R&B and soul, inspired by everyday experiences as well as her vividly surreal dream episodes.

Her latest, ‘Fresh Paint’ is just like a painting – the meaning behind the song is open to interpretation.  Featuring Andria’s alternative soulful R&B/jazz fusion, the single takes us away from life for a moment and into a magical place.

‘Fresh Paint’ is from Andria’s forthcoming Who’s Counting? EP, slated for release next year. Have a listen below…

 

Song of the Day: Slow Right Down – Jeffery James

Taken from his new EP, ‘East London’, Nashville-based singer/songwriter JEFFREY JAMES’ single, ‘Slow Right Down,’ is a pensive ballad that highlights James’ confident and inviting vocals.

Speaking of the release, The Billboard-approved singer says: “I wrote ‘Slow Right Down’ in 2019 when everything in my life was racing forward and I didn’t have time to catch my breath,” James writes. “This song became my personal mantra — a meditation — reminding myself that it’s OK to step back, look up every now and then, and just take in the moment.”

The ‘East London’ EP, released 28th February, was birthed during a month-long songwriting trip to London in early 2019. James worked with legendary engineer Geoff Swan (Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay) and producers Jackson Dimiglio-Wood (Shawn Mendes), Dan Weller (SikTh), and Dan McDougal (Liam Gallagher) to create a uniquely cross-Atlantic record that draws on James’ Nashville influences and combines them with the blue-eyed soul sounds that have been dominating the UK charts.

EP Review: Nothing Is Forever – Shon Jay

SHON JAY is that guy who set the bar high – and I mean unobtainably high among his music contemporaries.

His latest EP, ‘Nothing Is Forever’ may be only eight – tracks long, but there’s an electric mix of genres – from funk, old school soul and even an expected appearance of a little country – all of which oozes undisputed class.

Among a crowded industry that’s filled with quick-fix hits that’s easily forgotten, SHON JAY‘s ‘Nothing Is Forever’ is a true testament that there’s still GOOD and MEANINGFUL MUSIC out there and it’s definitely a collection that can be enjoyed from five or even ten years from now – I guess some things last forever.

Check him out below – it’s like listening to soul idols Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau and George Benson, all wrapped up in one.
