- Suzic (Ireland )
Suzanne Carroll, born in Dublin, Ireland is a songwriter/composer now based in Waterford, Ireland. After twenty five years in the business, music followers & colleagues know her as Suzic. She inherited her fondness for music from her grandfather, Samuel McNulty from Derry, who played the fiddle in a showband. Carrie Underwood, Freddie Mercury, Enya, George Michael, Michael Jackson, Hans Zimmer, James Horner And Adele are just a few names who have inspired her over the years and may explain her wide range of composing skills.
Early in Suzic' career, she recorded in Dick Keating’s studio. Keating wrote the song 'Here Today Gone Tomorrow' which represented Ireland in the Eurovision in 1982. Eventually, Suzic migrated to Optophonic Recording Studio in Dublin, Ireland where she worked with producer Derek Cronin. Cronin is best known for working with Sinead O'Connor, Katherine Jenkins and Westlife, along with other artists.
Suzic also co-wrote with the songwriter Krysta Youngs. In addition, Suzic also worked with another popular producer named Chris Erhardt with whom she sang country/pop genre song, 'Another Lifetime' at his studio Songcat Recording Studios in America.
This talented and charitable musical artist also released a song for voiceless children, titled “Our Children’s World”. Suzic's expertise also allows her to compose high class instrumental music for film/tv.
Suzic's newest album is, also available on Spotify. Please take a moment to listen to this extremely talented musician.
- Never Stop Rodriguez (Germany)
Never Stop Rodriguez is a three-piece band based in German. It’s been more than 25 years that they are playing and producing German Pop songs together. “Kreisverkehr” is the recent album released. One of my favorites is Fisch....
“The electric drums, soulful bass lines, funky guitar riffs, and atmospheric synthesizers along with the mesmerizing lyrics written by bandleader & Keyboarder Carlos Silva contribute greatly in making this band one of the most famous milestones. Carsten Borchers, the Guitarist of the trio, performs next to Joachim Ennen, a Bass player."
Their live performances are supported by exclusively produced music videos and animations brace their live concerts which reaches its peak of distinctive aura when combined with the illuminations. Planet Disco Club, Lauf weg, Ich Tanze etc. are the famous songs being released in recent years.
New but emerging Artist:
- Kyle Douglas (Texas)
Genre: Country/Gypsy Soul/Soul Country
The diligent musical artist and song writer, Kyle Douglas, is blessed with a mystical voice that inspires his listeners. As mentioned, he is a sensational new musical artist whose fierce will and obstinacy propelled him to greater triumphs. His natural flair kept him alive in the southeast Texas music scene since he started singing.
His lyrics and sound come from core of his soul. At his early stage of working he came up by playing drums with forthcoming Texas artist and bands such as The Lime Traders, Dysfunctional Hippies, Shayne Porter and the Shady Trees, The Jake Bush Band, The Mandi Powell Band etc. and it is here when he discerned about his own writing abilities. He brought these God-gifted talents out at local singer-songwriter shows and at song exchange shows around Houston.
Rock and roll was his greatest inspiration from his early age. Artists like Tom Petty, Bob Seger and Eric Clapton assisted him in working on his flaws. As being a Southern citizen, the Southern Rock, Blues and R&B reverberated within him. His hard work and passion about his work can be seen in his upcoming debut EP release. The first two of his singles have been released recently whereas his new single is about to release in March and full album will be released in April. (mySoundMusic.com will be sure to update you as they are released)
I must say, all of his work is certainly a reflection of his beautiful soul.
