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

SONG OF THE DAY Storm - Sinnerville (SINGLE REVIEW)


Sinnerville_Cover by Kenni.jpegWords by Anselm Anderson

There is certainly a storm brewing with the emergence of this rock songstress from Germany. Storm is a dual nationality German/ South Africa born singer/ songwriter and actress who currently resides in the USA. She began writing songs and performing in School plays and theatres as a child before recording music in Nashville with some reputable artists.

" Sinnerville" is her latest single based on the serious subject of Self -Harm told through the narrative of the Lewis Carroll Character Alice in Wonderland. This hard rock/ grunge song follows her as she battles addiction. Storm tells this vivid story with evocative imagery and heavy guitars in the guise of such female lead singers like Lizzy Hale.

The opening notes resonate like broken glass to inform the listener they are on a journey down a gritty rock track. The thunderous raptures of drums follow before Storm announces her arrival with an impassioned growl. The opening salvo is a credit to James Lugo as a guitarist with a sizzling range of notes, as she tells us "Burnt out like a cigarette/ lonely footsteps the best of her is gone. This bleak storytelling portrays a lost soul heading to self- destruction. 

Storm is able to combine this lyrical content with an aggressive guitar sound and rough vocals to invoke a tortured soul with a cry for help. The production adds to the hollowness of this track, which deserves a mention.

The singer hopes to raise awareness of such a topic that affects a lot of us as individuals. Here is hoping " Sinnerville" helps aid in this task to those that feel alone.

Sinnerville is now available via Bandcamp, Soundcloud and Spotify.
