  Hostage by Maya Malkin



Hostage cover art


Substantial

Doing the heartfelt thing with more than the usual bounce is Maya Malkin with her song “Hostage” making her point while still remaining both radio friendly and friendly to every passing ear. Commercial but not lacking in substance.

  Coming Home To You by Andria Piperni



Coming Home To You cover art


Soulful

Laidback and infused with a substantial amount of that neo soul vibe, “Coming Home To You” tells like it like it is, and how it always has been, with Andria Piperni having the voice to make it all seem so real. I feel a sigh coming on.

  Best Interests by Carmanah



Best Interests cover art


Deep

You can’t go wrong with reverb and Carmanah duly reverbrate with the steady groove that drives “Best Interests” forever forward echoing around inside your head as if to encourage you to go deep. I hear that.

  Couch Walker by Jenny Banai



Couch Walker cover art


Approved

Some singers have an almost indefinable quality that enchants and entrances. Jenny Banai is such a singer and, slight as “Couch Walker” is, her song nonetheless makes you hit that repeat button. Like it now for love is not far away.

  He Sees Me by Savannah Pope



He Sees Me cover art


Mature

Savannah Pope has a voice that would wake even those in the deepest of sleeps and seasoning her song “He Sees Me” with solid seventies blues rock musical moves provides more than enough evidence that she can also cross generational barriers.

  Wings by The Shacks



Wings cover art


Yes!

Now, “Wings” is my kind of song. A subsonic bass line grinds away under the kind of sweet voice that is but a hairsbreadth away from sin to make this one into a permanent recollection in your musical memory. The Shacks are a band that sticks things in your head.

  All of the Feelings by Kiesza



All of the Feelings cover art


Lively

Full of retro groove moves, “All of the Feelings” triumphs over other songs of worship of the past by the sheer amount of energy that Kiesza manages to inject into her performance. She almost makes me feel like dancing. I am that uplifted.

  Brother by Aaron Smith



Brother cover art


Deep

You can feel the depth as you sink in to “Brother” by up and coming Scottish singer Aaron Smith with much in the way of melodrama and introspection providing the accompaniment to complement his rather fine voice.

  Bite by Rozette



Bite cover art


Modern

Loud and polished to digital perfection, “Bite” is a song that could only be of these modern times with Rozette providing enough in the way of vocal strength and to the point lyrics to make this song cut where others do not.

  Urban Alice by The Method One



Urban Alice cover art


Retro

Going back to days of Britpop to find the inspiration to grind up some guitars into a song works out pretty well for The Method One and “Urban Alice” will remind plenty of people of when they were young. The Method One? Oh, I get it. Very streetwise.

  Make Me Strong by Barking Poets



Make Me Strong cover art


Melodic

Playing the chords like a band with a purpose, Barking Poets might well draw some inspiration from the days of punk but “Make Me Strong” is more about melody than anger. That said, if I heard them in a pub, I would definitely buy them a drink or two.
