If you are lusting for the sounds of 80s synth-pop with a twist of 90s R&B, you’ll definitely want to take a venture into the world of Aaron Beri on his latest music release “Connected” from his debut album ‘Avalanche’. Thankfully, music fans no longer have to wait two decades for a mini-series such as the New Edition Story to rekindle their relationship with the sultry sounds that catapulted popular R&B male vocalists into fame long before mumble rap was considered an actual genre (!?). “Connected” is a fabulous blast from the past with a refreshingly modern flavor.

“Connected” becomes an instant favorite due to Aaron’s honey-drenched vocals and the catchy music score. The songwriting is full of emotion, delivers meaningful words and still drives a catchy pop-infused feel with a chorus that is worth repeating. After engaging with the production, it is easy to understand how the track has garnered thousands of plays across the web.

Aaron’s latest release is reminiscent to George Michael’s earlier works, the sounds of 80s pop bands Breathe and PM Dawn to name just a few. Be not mistaken however, Aaron Beri defines his own unique style as he navigates through a myriad of experiences. “Connected” is a must add track to your playlist especially if you happen to find yourself on YouTube searching for throwback R&B videos thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish music still sounded like this.”

Based in Australia, singer and songwriter Aaron Beri is set to debut his album ‘Avalanche’ in Europe. ‘Avalanche’ has been described as a, “soul and R&B soundtrack to Aaron’s childhood” (www.aaronberi.com). Aaron’s distinct style encompasses a wide scope of genres and influences that range from Rock, R&B, and Pop. The songwriter credits his mom for discovering the music that would eventually shape his style.

As a songwriter, Aaron Beri penned all of the songs on his new album which has made it a very personal experience for the artist. Aaron hopes to share his own personal story on ‘Avalanche’. As the title suggests, the project he says, “ are about the cold and destructive side of love”. “Kingdom Falls” another single on the album was produced by Aria nominee Peter Holz and Mastered by William Bowden, a Grammy Award-Winning Mastering Engineer.

Aaron Beri is currently working on a 5 track EP and single which are both due to release later on in 2017. He plans to venture away from his current sound on the upcoming project as indicative of his evolution as an artist. Aaron states, “the sound is bolder, stronger and edgier”. Plans for music videos are also on the horizon. After getting plugged into “Connected” we are excited to see what Aaron Beri comes up with next.

Alex Alexander Bad Luck

Swedish musician, singer, songwriter, and producer Alex Alexander recently released his fourth single “Bad Luck”, a sultry Pop and R&B fusion with a hint of Motown flavor. If you have been craving the soulful sounds that once blessed radio airwaves, Alex Alexander is poised to deliver. As a multi-talented performer, Alex is no stranger to the music scene and covers a variety of genres. “Bad Luck” is a moving production, the only of its kind in this new era of music which often lacks substance and musicality. This track delivers plenty of soul for the masses and it is polished off with a fantastic musical accompaniment.

We checked in with Alex Alexander to ask him a few questions about his latest music release and more. Check out the exclusive interview below.

When did you decided that you first wanted to pursue music?

When I was 12 I was literally obsessed with Metallica and Yngwie Malmsteen the super guitarist. So there was a very strong urge to start playing guitar and ever since that time I been hooked on music. My music career has taken me on several journeys around the world and eventually into the recording industry.

How would you describe your style for an Alex Alexander newbie?

My main style is Pop but I tend to lean on the harder side with more guitars mixed with Urban Drums. My signature as an artist is definitely my High Vocals  according to my fans.

Can you tell us a little bit about some of your musical influences that have helped to shape your experience as an artist?

My dad has a very broad musical interest so he listens to everything from Genesis to Motown stuff, I love the Motown era and I still think it was one of the best eras for music ever. A lot of my influences also come from Rock music since I love guitar playing and the rough sound. I think as an artist coming from a broad musical background is great since you will have your mind open to all kinds of music.

If you were given the opportunity to collaborate with any artist, musician, or producer, who would that person be?

One man one name: Max Martin

   Using 3 words, describe your latest single “Bad Luck”?

IMG_0111Experimental, Sexy & Real

What were some of the inspirations behind the single?

I wanted to do a single with a flare of Motown but still keep it in the modern Pop Vibe and the end result was ’’Bad Luck’’. I started playing around with some old school guitar sounds and I really feel in love with the chord line of the song and felt like yeah I want to release this to my fans.

Some of the most popular names in music have come out of Sweden, are you also hoping to gain international success and if so what does it take to break boundaries if any?

Sweden is a great music country with an amazing amount of talented people. Im very proud of the impact that Swedish artists have been able to create worldwide and its very inspiring to take a shot at such a big challenge when you see its actually possible. To make it worldwide as an artist you have to build up relationships and travel around to the markets to where you want succeed. Im right now in Los Angeles doing precisely that!

So around about this time last year we covered your track “She’s a Dynamite”, but  “Bad Luck” really seems to deliver a different vibe, what made you decide to change things up?

’’She’s A Dynamite’’ was my first track as a Solo artist. My team and I felt along the way, that its not the vibe of music that I want to aim for long-term. I still like the song very much, and its a cool song on my track record. I want to do Pop- but more mature Pop, like Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5 etc.

I love Prince and I could see my musical choices reflecting a lot of how he was doing songs; you never knew what Prince was gonna deliver, Pop, Rock, Soul, or Ballad? I think this is a very cool way of doing music. It was still Prince in every one of his songs, but a lot of different genres.

If there were one thing that you wish listeners and fans would take away from your music, what would that be?

An emotion! Any kind of emotion ’’I love this’’ ’’This Sucks’’ or whatever, haha, music is about emotions. If you don’t get any response at all, then you failed and made something that is not provoking any kind of anything.

2016 is half way through, are there any other projects that we can expect from you this year?

Oh yes. I spent almost 2 months in Los Angeles [now] and just finished 3 new singles that I am very proud that represent the future sound of Alex Alexander. The music goal is to get a six song EP done before the year ends!

Alex, thank you for taking some time out to answer a couple of questions from the glitter squad, please share any last words or comments that you would like to get out to the masses!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to talk to you guys at Glitter Squad and don’t forget to follow my socials to keep updated with my new projects and music!

Alex Alexander has traveled the world as an Indie artist since the age of 19. The musician, singer, songwriter, and producer released “Bad Luck”, his fourth single in April 2016. Reminescent to Smokey Robinson with a splash of Prince, “Bad Luck is a Pop and R&B track with a 50s flair; the song takes listeners back to the cherished Motown era for a fleeting moment but it’s contemporary energy beckons the millennial generation.

Recognized for his captivating live performances, Alex is praised for his energy and stage presence which have gained him notoriety all over the world. As a cross-over artist, he has received awards for his producing and songwriting projects for some of the biggest names in Asia and Europe. Regarding Alex’s earlier smash hit “She’s A Dynamite”, ScandiPop, Stockholm/London says, “Kelly Clarkson would be proud.”  Guitar Experience UK called Alex Alexander “One of the best young guitarists right now!”

Reigning with Soul: Zhanè Monique Debuts ‘Legacy of an Empress’ EP Southern Soul Meets Trip Hop on Zhanè Monique 'Legacy of an Empress' EP Release

0

One may be surprised to know that a young artist of today is able to deliver a voice that is reminiscent to the distinct sounds of decades past. With the exception of a few notable performers, music today often seems to lack the substance and talent once experienced with industry pioneers. One young performer from Atlanta, Georgia however, is breaking ground with a fiercely contemporary sound that channels the vibrations of classic soul singers and the modern nuances of a millennial generation. The artist’s name is Zhanè Monique, and she is a young lady whose music seems to be well beyond her years.

We recently got an insider look into the debut EP release by Zhanè Monique titled ‘Legacy of an Empress’. The EP consists of 7 distinct tracks that demonstrate the performer’s diversity as a singer and songwriter. ‘Legacy of an Empress’ conveys itself with regal quality just as the name of the project suggests. As the the EP opens with “Young Teen” a short interlude, it swiftly becomes evident that Zhanè Monique is not your average recording artist nor your average teen. She is a gifted performer destined to leave an indelible mark on the surface of the music landscape.

As Zhanè introduces herself to listeners singing the lyrics, “I’m just a young teen trying to fulfill my dreams” it is clear that the talented artist is on a mission and taking no prisoners. At first glance, Zhanè’s head-turning sound strikes a familiar chord. Fans of Beyonce will gravitate toward Zhanè’s execution of vocals which resound in a similar fashion. She delivers passionate vocals with comparable dexterity and range. There are few artists today, especially in pop that can truly hit a wide range of notes much less sing at all; even fewer female R&B artists are exposed to audiences through the mainstream music, so ‘Legacy of an Empress’ is a refreshing glimpse into a new generation of rising artists.

 

Check out our Insider Look into ‘Legacy of an Empress’ by Zhanè Monique

 

“Highs & Lows” is a flawless production that emerges with an acoustic feel as Zhanè belts out a mellow tune. The track, which morphs into an eclectic-sounding number expresses unique instrumentals against poetic lyrics.

“Drift” is a progressively modern number with a trendy feel. As Zhanè delivers bold lyrics she pays homage to the “ATL”. The track is an infectious production drenched in flavorful instrumental layers and complex elements.

Perhaps one of the most notable tracks on ‘Legacy of an Empress’ is “Lambs Became Lions” , a powerful number that tells a vivid tale. Using fascinating metaphors, Zhanè delivers a moving experience with a salient message.

Zhanè Monique continues her exquisite story-telling on “Legacy”, a slow-tempo track with distorted instrumentals and deep, soulful lyrics. The track, produced by ZM has a darker feel giving way to her purposeful delivery. The performer demonstrates a vast vocal range on the melodic “Hope”, a powerful track that touches the soul and endears the heart. Concluding the EP with an even stronger finish is “She Can Have You (A World in Chains)”, an unconventional production with captivating lyrics and inspiring instrumentals. Zhanè Monique gives an impressive performance throughout ‘Legacy of an Empress’. The EP is a remarkable blend of R&B, soul, electronic, and alternative sounds with a light hip-hop flair.
