Music Review: Darla Beaux’s “Rebel Soul” EP

Release date: March 19, 2013

Purchase: iTunes

Are you ready for some soulful, timeless, and all in all REAL music? Then I invite you to give Darla Beaux’s “Rebel Soul” EP a good long listen. The five track record had me hooked from the opening song, and left me anticipating more by the last. The talented songstress sent fire under my skin with her mature and powerful vocals; I did a double take hearing she was only fourteen years old. One would never guess such impressive ranges were coming from a teen, but Darla has proven that age is indeed nothing but a number.  Continue reading “Music Review: Darla Beaux’s “Rebel Soul” EP”

[Music Review] Yuri Koller “Open Doors”

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.

Are you tired of the far from authentic and beyond washed-up so-called music playing on the airways? Then Tamia’s latest album is sure to remind you what it truly means to not only have natural talent but to also deliver substantial songs that won’t leave you feeling like throwing up. “Beautiful Surprise” is the epitome of r&b and soul, something very lacking at the moment. Thankfully, Tamia isn’t fazed by trends and chooses to hold tight to her musical roots while belting out fresh melodies on each track.  Continue reading “Music Review: Tamia’s “Beautiful Surprise””
