Yuri Koller is a Toronto based vocalist, songwriter, and producer. His latest effort, Open Doors, came to us via a short sweet email from the man himself. It is a mashup of hiphop, RnB, and soul. Personally, I struggled to find any soul esque notes in his music, hence it just being a contemporary R&B album. If you miss the 90s era, his music re-ignites that vibe effortlessly.
In terms of production, his crew consisting of Cxaleb,SE7N, Oliver Grey, Korruption, and the Masterminds and Nexus Movement, went hard in the paint for him. Both Kai and I were impressed with their professional efforts. Shourr ourrs to dem! Overall, it is a very well produced and cohesive sophomore project. Apparently, this cutie has been on his grind for a minute…Nyhoo, journey with me as I review, and let’s see whether he gets a (-) to the nth power, or an (A*) rating.

New England is well known for its clam chowder, but not so much for its artistry. Allow me to introduce to you Antonio Mclendon from Providence, RI, the smallest state in the U.S.
He is an immensely multi-talented artist who plays five instruments: the piano, drums, bass, lead guitar, saxaphone and the trumpet. Additionally he sings, produces and composes songs. He cites his father as being his greatest musical influence.
Genre wise, his focus is on smooth RnB. Which has an old school feel to it that is devoid of today’s music. Mend your broken heart is his first single, where he promises to treat her like a queen as remedy for being broken hearted. Take a listen.
