Juan Rey Pop/Rock Music

Juan Manuel Rey has mastered of one of the most entertaining and nuanced styles of pop entertainment we’ve come across in recent years, and his new single ‘Era De Placer’ shows why you’ll be hearing a lot more of him.
With undeniable vocal talent and fine-tuned production served straight up, Juan Manuel Rey is an artist that any pop music enthusiast will thoroughly enjoy. The success of his latest awarding-winning work has not gone unnoticed by the critics, with one recently writing: ‘To say this artist is proficient with the Latin pop idiom is not enough – listen to tracks like ‘Era De Placer’ to witness the delightful mayhem that issues forth when an expert sidesteps convention to conjure something new.’ Yet there’s something special about Juan Manuel Rey that sets him apart from other pop acts. In a musical generation characterized by manufactured pop acts, Juan Manuel Rey’s originality and sincerity do more than stand out. They reveal qualities that cannot be engineered in the studio. There’s also an unpretentious realness to this artist out of Buenos Aires, Argentina and judging by his growing fan base, he may be precisely what the new generation didn’t know it was missing. Independent reporter Blake Wright recently caught up with Juan Manuel Rey to get an inside look at this exciting new artist and to learn what he has in store for fans this year.
BLAKE: Let’s just get this out in the open- What is the craziest thing that has happened to you in your music career?
JUAN MANUEL REY: The craziest thing that happened to me in my musical career was that they paid me with a bottle of beer after having given a show at full steam before a wealthy audience.

BLAKE: Your song ’Era De Placer’ is receiving a positive listener response on the radio. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on the radio?
JUAN MANUEL REY: Wow, great! My reaction was to overflow with joy and happiness.

BLAKE: What was the inspiration behind your debut radio single?
JUAN MANUEL REY: The inspiration came after watching a couple of movies about the Mafia.

BLAKE: It is often said that great art arises from difficult experience. Is there something in your life experience thus far that you would describe as the ‘catalyst’ or ‘fuel’ for your desire to create music?
JUAN MANUEL REY: Of course, the death of my father made me see another world.

BLAKE: How would you characterize yourself as an artist/musician? (Ex. Down-to-earth, serious, fun-loving, complicated…)
JUAN MANUEL REY: I think I’m a bit of everything, I try to be balanced.

True Hip Hop has no Age!

Allow yourself to think of music as life. Hip hop has become just one part of the life. People no longer move to music like they use to. For music today the words and the music no longer dance together. Sometime it feels like they walk a long side of each other playing tag. Mr. Bingo through 20 years of being in the music business has made a lane where music and words dance together again! His single “Step” prove this is true. With his video “Step” https://youtu.be/GIFRnbNshLc. Hip hop should live a long life!

Arkansas Urban Music Artist Big Rome is Back!

It is true that talents can be found anywhere, even under many grave circumstances. Big Rome is a living example of such a talent who has made his name in the music industry with his efficiency to create original and innovative musical melodies. His recently released EP ‘Urban Renegade’ is the best proof for the same.

The native of a small town in Southern Missouri, W.K.Jerome Higgs aka Big Rome had moved to Arkansas with his mother in 1985 in the hope of a better living. But with uneven circumstances, he got himself involved in street politics and landed himself in the Department Of Correction for three years. Though it was a state of humiliation for him and his family, destiny turned his misfortune into a great turning point in his life.

Apart from being a skillful musician Big Rome is also an active socialist. Living in the constraint walls of the Department Of Correction had made him realize his worth in the society and from then onwards he had taken efficient efforts to promote awareness among kids about the harmful effects of street politics and also its mere consequences.

He is a member of the Famous Poets Society where he won their annual poetry contest with his marvelous writing skills. He has also won the song of the year trophy at the prestigious International Music and Entertainment Association.

With his new EP, Big Rome has brought out the passion he bestows towards creating innovative music. Wrapped in four melodious harmonies along with a narrative intro Rome, this EP is sure to allure a lot of young music lovers.

The intro, in the beginning, is a simple narrative by Big Rome which actually summaries the basic theme for the whole EP. It is very well understood that the theme of this EP is greatly influenced by the occasional hiccups in his own life.

The first song ‘I Got Issues’ gives a curious start to the struggle against the societal norms of the fake attempts of trying to prove one’s goodness that Big Rome had tried to depict in this EP. The strong and inspiring lyrical section enhances this song’s quality which further matches with Rome’s vocal quality as he lips each song with immense intensity and enthusiasm.

As the songs play successively one after another Rome establishes his position strong and firm with the progressive music of this album. ‘Sick and Tired’ and ‘ Stone Love’ closes the EP in an engrossing soulful tune as Rome uses his intense baritone to leave a mark in the audience’s heart. The heartfelt lyrics and powerful background musical association surely take this EP a few high notches above one’s expectation. The sound quality is kept high and clear.

Big Rome has surely made his mark with his immense contribution in the field of progressive fusion music. This new EP from him is sure to touch many aggressive young hearts who would find the words pushing them to express what they had always tried to say. A brilliant by Rome for sure.

Hoes! Hoes!! Hoes!!! by Lord A From the Album What It Is

Hoes! Hoes!! Hoes!!! is the 2nd track on the debut album – What it is by the Nigerian Hip-hop artiste called Lord A released 23rd of October 2017 on popular music streaming .

The name of this track is quite impressionable and self explanatory, initially, one might assume it is tantrum throwing, however it takes a story-telling philosophical approach similar to the songs from greats like Superman – Eminem, Housewife – Dr Dre, Nate Dogg – Your Wife, just to mention a few. It has a catchy, easy-to-recite hook and quite interesting to listen to with its melodious beat.

Autumn Allen – Beautiful Scar

 

I am a dancer, actress, and vocalist from Orange County, CA. I began my career while I was living abroad in Cambodia at the young age of eight years old. I showcased my talents during an open mic event at an international beach bar in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. I discovered that I had a natural talent of performing so I entered into my first international talent competition in Phnom Penh a year later. I was welcome by an international audience of over 1,000 people. After my performance I began to develop an international fan base.

Many of my performances have been captured on video and posted on YouTube. These performances include pop songs sung in many different languages. Within a few months of my YouTube postings, the videos started to gain popularity in the international communities around the globe. In a short amount of time, my fan base in Cambodia began to soar expeditiously. I was featured in several magazines article as a young and upcoming artist.

Shortly afterwards, I was approached by MYTV television network to perform on the popular international talent show, “Like It or Not” in Cambodia. On my debut show, I performed live in multiple languages and became an instant hit. With increasing popularity, I was invited to multiple network television shows as a special guest which included, MYTV “Like It or Not”, “Mr. & Mrs. Talk Show”, “Olala”, and “Like It or Not Sunday”. I also performed live on CTN’s (Cambodia Television Network) “Modern Concert Sunday”.

Before moving back to the USA to further my education, I was invited by CTV8 HD and Phnom Penh Municipal Cable TV (PPCTV) television networks to perform in two major concerts. One live televised concert was with Hong Kong’s supreme stars Mandy Wong, Ruco Chan and Kate Tsui. The second concert was televised live in Singapore with Singapore’s elite celebrities Elvin Ng and Zoe Tay.
