Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter SmartBlackKid is back with a new single titled “Intelligent Blues” from his latest album release ‘The Best of SmartBlackKid Vol. 2’. From the first chord executed by this genuine one-man band, it becomes quickly evident that SmartBlackKid is on another level of artistry.

No stranger to eclectic fusions, SmartBlackKid unleashes a fury of thought-provoking lyrics over a dark and gritty beat. “Intelligent Blues” is reminiscent to the lyrical stylings of Wu-Tang Clan’s own GZA. SmartBlackKid delivers relevant bars in a laid-back manner while exploring deep lyrical content that stimulates the mind. Unfortunately, this experience is all too rare in mainstream music so “Intelligent Blues” is a grand escape from the mundane.

SmartBlackKid is unapologetic in his incorporation of relevant themes into his latest release which make this particular project most timely in every sense of the word. A fitting title for a forward-thinking single is just one of the ironies introduced on “Intelligent Blues”. SmartBlackKid is clearly a revolutionary musician who not only uses his artistic prowess to make great sounding music, but also uses his creativity as a vessel by which to educate and enlighten a wide-reaching audience.

“Intelligent Blues” is one of those songs that simply makes you dig a little deeper, think a little bit more about the world around you. The single is an experience that is worth having regardless of age and gender because SmartBlackKid taps into nuances that almost anyone can relate to.

Conner600x600Singer and songwriter Conner Gilbert recently released the lyric video for his song “The Prospect”. The emotionally-driven performance appeared on his 2009 solo album debut titled ‘The View from Within’. If you are looking for an inspiring song with purposeful lyrics, “The Prospect” will certainly deliver. Reminiscent of early acts such as Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, Conner commands the attention of listeners with epic instrumentals and rock-infused vocals. “The Prospect” is a refreshing production with contemporary appeal. Should you need a diversion from the heavily saturated pop/hip-hop hybrid tracks that are currently soaking up the air ways, “The Prospect” will provide a delightful respite. If you are jonesing for the sounds of Chris Isaak with a contemporary pop-rock flair, you will be pleased to discover the sounds of Conner Gilbert. The young artist’s songwriting resonates with the imprint of the distinguished 1960s and 1990s styles. He has however, uniquely crafted a modernized acoustic style with a distinct vocal performance.

Conner’s lyric video release provides a thoughtful visual to accompany the poetic words which emerge slowly from the track. As the video progresses, viewers are introduced to several landmarks and sights that are gently blurred in the background. As the words appear across the screen viewers are quickly enveloped into the resounding message that Conner has decided to share with his audience. In summary, “The Prospect” is dynamic and engaging.

Energetic guitars strum as background vocals harmonize and Conner sings “You’ll never really know what you mean to me my friend”. Pianos capture the essence of the composition while carefully crafted layers express retro sounds. As the track builds intensity, Conner hits a long note and let’s it linger on as the instrumentals kick out a lighthearted melody. For a fleeting moment, the song winds down, teasing fans with some catchy riffs only to surge forward with an cinematic finish. “The Prospect” is highly-contagious and marvelously uplifting. Conner Gilbert demonstrates effortless sophistication with intricate patterns that seem to flow naturally. The song creates a panoramic journey as interpreted in the lyric video. Conner captures fans, achieving the apex of listening satisfaction with creative insight, strong vocals, and polished instrumentals. Experience the sounds of Conner Gilbert, by checking out his official lyric video, now streaming on YouTube.
