SONG OF THE DAY- JEFF TUOHY- THE DEVIL'S IN NEW ORLEANS

Image
Billboard Award-winning songwriter Jeff Tuohy has released his latest single "The Devil's In New Orleans", ahead of the musician's album Hudson Delta, set for release on August 25th,2021 The album was recorded and mixed in Brooklyn, following a tough year that saw the collapse of his 2019 debut, which gained much-needed radio airplay. The New York-based rock musician has been hailed as "one of the best up-and-coming songwriters in North America". "The Devil's In New Orleans" was once dubbed unsuitable for radio. Tuohy looks into the turmoil of modern society. The track sees soulful vocals spread over soft jazz piano keys. Jeff Tuohy sounds like the cunning wordsmith. as he talks over multi-layered horns and keys accompaniment. The track has dark undertones to a sneering vocalist that bursts into melody on the chorus. Overall, this is a track that will leave you pleasantly surprised, whilst looking over your shoulder. Words by Anselm Anderson SO

FireBug- Follower ( Single Review)

Image
The California- based Firebug is an Alternative Rock group,, heavily influenced by 70's rock and New Orleans blues. They have been generating a following amongst Festival - goers and concert attendees. The band's groove- orientated rock has enlightened 80,000 fans at Sonisphere in Knebworth, England. The band release Follower ,   the first track from new album Wandering Soul. The thing that strikes me most about the track is the high energy riff that maintains throughout, and the soulful timbre of lead singer Juliette Tworsey. The 70's influenced vibes makes this an instant favourite with its polished production values and blues-tinged rhythmic patterns. The track begins with the tantalising hook that leads into the vocals of Tworsey, a rich and tender entrance that hypnotises the listener. Her voice blends with the buzz of guitar -driven desert rock with a nice new Orleans solo that fits in with the structure of the music. Wandering Soul is now available via itunes.

Christopher Taylor is a Singer/ Songwriter from Yorkshire. He has been performing and writing songs for many years as both a soloist as well as in bands. He reached a milestone in 2016 when his debut EP Chasing Rainbows received an Akademia Award.  He now returns with a new single S tep back, Slow down from his forthcoming EP Curiosit y. This is an introspective song about making those decisions in your life when things get difficult. The uses of steel guitar and Taylor's mellow vocal lines waver to produce a solid Country song, which begins with the resonant echoes of snare drums before the recognisable sounds of slide guitar encroach like a snake in the grass. This is a light summer track that is thought-provoking in a sense for those who are feeling lost, but the overall tone will leave you feeling good afterwards,  You can listen to the track below
