Tony Marino’s new album is particularly surprising, combining the retro jazz of the modern New School with the Old School New Orleans of yesteryear, which you no longer hear, together with mesmerizing world music and results in the creation of something completely new that I have never heard before.

The standout single, Cardinal Drive, is a cinematically rich composition that sets a debonair tone throughout the enlivening score, which simultaneously emanates a sense of melodic ease as Marino works through his globally respected signature flair across the ivories.

Some artists create in pursuit of glitz and glamor. Others make music to help us better connect with the world around us and use it as a vehicle to reach people in the darkest moments of their lives.

Scott Boyal is a Modesto, California-based singer-songwriter and Pop producer who falls into the latter category. He is an artist whose sound echoes his experiences, in all its ups and downs, through life so far.

Ignorance is Bliss brilliantly captures the feeling of being misunderstood, pretending everything is okay, and hiding inner pain. Scott’s passionate vocal performance is hauntingly evocative, layered in patterns of futuristic harmonies as he pours his heart out.

It’s about waking up one day and feeling that everything around you somehow looks and feels different. This unintentional shift into a different perspective brings an awareness that life as you’ve known it will never be the same again.
