'For You' ... from Tye Cee
From a very young age, Tye Cee was always surrounded by music at home. The record player was constantly playing sounds of extraordinary singers and composers of Soul, Funk, Disco, Pop, Caribbean, Folk, Bossa Nova or even Opera. Through these different currents, Tye Cee could find some relief and escape the difficult moments. This fusion of influences and meanings gave birth to his passion for singing, performing and composing his own nostalgic fusion of neo-soul songs. Through music, Tye Cee wanted to give back some entertainment, peace and relief to everyone who listens to his music – so they can see that they are not being left behind. Tye Cee knows what it’s like to feel that way. For You has been released this past August (2021) on all digital music platforms; Tye Cee wanted to do something different for his new single, For You. With this song, he wanted to have fun travelling to the dance floor vibes of the 80s. Tye Cee wanted something fresh, up-tempo with bass and funky beats to contrast with the lyrics which may sound a bit nostalgic but with inches of hope. Tye Cee hopes you enjoy it as much as he enjoyed composing and writing it.

Your Favourite David Bowie Album Today
I have been a fan of David Bowie since I first heard “Space Oddity” in the late 1960s and I have enjoyed his music since then. Prior to “Space Oddity '' he had been a rhythm and blues singer in David Jones and The Lower Third but changed his name to Bowie to avoid confusion with Davey Jones of The Monkees.
Why You Should Listen to Lords of Acid
Lords of Acid are a Belgian/American techno group that’s been around since the late 1980s. I’m a bit late to the Lords of Acid party, as I’ve only just started listening to them a few years ago, but as far I know they are still active and are still alive and kicking. Their music has proven to be timeless and paints a perfect image of the club scene in the 90s. I could see myself dancing to a lot of this music to the dancing machines in the arcade machines.
Taller in More Ways
The fourth album by the Sugababes had the band working with top producers like Dallas Austin and Xenomania. Like they did with their other albums, the girls split writing credits and shared vocal parts in the song. They’re at the height of their career after bringing out three iconic albums. This album is a treat for pop music fans. I remember when Push The Button first came out, and it was stuck in my head for days. Many pop bands are lucky to release more than two albums, let alone four in their first run.

Festivals are Coming Back - Here's What You Need to Know
This past year has taken a big strain on society physically and mentally. If there’s one thing that people missed in 2020, it was social events, concerts, and festivals with our loved ones. Drinking in overflowing crowds never sounded so good. With millions continuing to get vaccinated and states opening up more opportunities to be together again, we may soon be able to enjoy the freedom and social life we once lived. Luckily, a few music festivals are returning in 2021 that are a must.
‘Magic’ Is the Best Bruce Springsteen Album You’ve Never Heard
It has been entirely too long since I've done a story about Bruce Springsteen, so today I want to call attention to an album that rarely gets mentioned when talking about his best work. This is a shame, because 2007’s Magic is one of his finest albums, and certainly the equal of The Rising as his best album of the last 20 years.
Sensational R&B singer and songwriter Micah Willis drops a brand new R&B single titled "Forget”
Sensational R&B singer and songwriter Micah Willis drops a brand new R&B single titled "Forget. "Forget" is a moderate tempo elevating R&B track with lyrics and theme leaning towards dance and "having a good time." "Forget" is a "feel-good" song somewhat written in response to the most recent world upsets and crises - especially the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020. According to Micah Willis, “Forget,” just as the song title suggests is about “forgetting all the terrible times we had in 2020.” Micah believes it is time everyone goes out to have fun. Instrumentally, “Forget” is rooted in very solid R&B influences as it also taps some minor [but not insignificant] elements from genres like rap, trap, soul, and blues.
A Musical Education , My Experience of Public Service Broadcasting
I first heard Public Service Broadcasting on BBC Radio 6 with the song “ROYGBIV” an acronym for the sequence of hues commonly described as making up a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
Be Right Back — Album Review
From the very beginning, Jorja Smith grabs the listener by the ears and demands a thoughtful approach in Be Right Back. This album is both melancholy and soulful in a willful approach to love. Travesty seems to carry in the artist’s voice and reverberates in your soul, almost to the point of poignancy. This short album has a certain sound that we don’t necessarily see in American music; as so, I can appreciate the nuance in the dialect and delivery in each song. There is an earthy, jazzy, funky element that is very subtle yet complements the artist so well.
