Josh Pearl (Cayman Islands), recently release his new single “Emotional”

emotional by josh pearl, hip hop, ballad, taylor-king, cayman islands, dancehall, soca, rap artist, indie music news, music industry news, lost in eldorado, new music releaseProduced by Taylor-King, this single is from his upcoming EP Lost In Eldorado set to be released on August 23rd. In “Emotional”, Pearl mixes hip hop and dancehall over what starts off as a piano ballad then turns up through out the track sending listeners on an emotional roller coaster.

Pearl says the inspiration for “Emotional” came after he relocated temporarily to Los Angeles. “I felt like no matter how much I would show and prove to people how serious I was about everything I was doing, I still never got that same respect back. From being betrayed by a radio station back home that I built years of a relationship with, who falsely advertised my name at a event that I had no consent to, to someone I had love for not feeling the same way as I did towards our relationship. It all melted into me letting all of my emotions go onto this song, which is something that was new for me.”

R&B/Soul singer, JeRonelle returns with a soulful ballad “New Kid in Town”


Branching out and taking risks is what it takes to reach your highest potential. We always tend to skip over the struggle that took place during those risk taking moments when telling the story after we’ve made it. Singer, JeRonelle penned a journal entry of the happenings of taking off to LA to pursue his dreams but running into stumbling blocks along with way with his new song “New Kid in Town”. Worried that all will fail, he continues to strive in his mission of stepping out on faith. All of those emotions are felt in this honesty story of being “the new kid in town”.

“Imagine moving to a new city where almost no one knows who you are and you are forced to begin again, all for the sake of pursuing your dreams. Scary right? That is the feeling that many creative artists go through all because we desire to be greater at what we love to do.” – JeRonelle

Funk Trap, Straight no Chaser | “All Night Long” by Antonio Ramsey

Antonio Ramsey - All Night Long Cover_
Vocalist and songwriter Antonio Ramsey is hitting us with #funktrap with his new soulful single “All Night Long”. This track features hot production which makes you move seductively as Antonio’s sound demands your attention. Ramsey’s voice places you in a trance as his raspy melodic controls the track and is apparently controlling mind of the lady he’s referencing.

“All Night Long” was written by Antonio Ramsey and Kareem James and produced by Brandon “Monstaa” Brown.

“As soon as I heard the guitar riff that plays the record in, it just felt sexy with that classic throwback-feel to it,”
mentions Antonio.  “Then of course the Hennessy and cranberry kicked in, giving us the melody “Imma give that girl this d***” and from there the song just fell into place,” he chuckles.  “The song is on the premise of how us as men should be upfront with a woman without sugar-coating what we want and how women should do the same.”

“Coming up in south Florida, I had no choice but to grow up a very straight forward type of person. I grew up listening to icons like James brown, Stevie Wonder & Jodeci! So me being able to put pieces of my life together to create #FunkTrap music is a journey that I look forward to,” says Antonio

Antonio is preparing to hit the road on a promotional tour in support of the single and stops will include; New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Chicago, just to name a few.  Antonio’s forthcoming debut EP will be released later this Fall.

Antonio Ramsey Promo 1_
What becomes of a striking vocal talent that was born and bred for entertainment in South Florida, polished and primed in Atlanta and is currently being presented in the Los Angeles performance sect?  Undoubtedly, the debut of a conceptual new genre, “Funk Trap” and a comprehensive new talent, Antonio Ramsey, who’s destined to dominate the charts and update what we now know to be the soulful sound of today’s man.
The raspy baritone and soon to be vocal paramount has opened shows and shared stages with fellow celebrated performers including Fantasia, Lyfe Jennings, Anthony Hamilton, Bobby Brown, Vivian Green, Bobby V, Chubb Rock and more. Currently, Ramsey is promoting his newest single All Night Long, a mannish, bass-ladened promise to unabashedly “give it all he’s got” all night long.  The accompanying video, shot between a desolate California desert and a sex-charged hotel room is steadily tearing through the social-sphere drawing fans into the look, feel, sound and overall experience that is the 20-something year old crooner with boy-next-door charm.
Ramsey, who is heavily inspired by James Brown and Jodeci, has made cameo appearances on television in projects on MTV, BRAVO and NBC.  2017 will continue to usher in performance and portrayal opportunities for everything from new music to forthcoming movie roles.  Walls, boundaries and boxes don’t stand a chance if attempting to stop this show.  It’s already in process and he’s got the feeling baby.

Drive You Crazy | “Crazy” by TJ Stafford

TJ Stafford gets sinister with his dark debut single, “Crazy”

Crazy_TJStaffordA Los Angeles-based songwriter, Stafford performed in various bands before finally stepping out on his own, saying “being a musician for most of my life, not making an album that was just me, with the exact words I wanted to say, and the exact sounds that fit those words, would have been an unimaginable regret.”  The songwriter has a long history of success with sync placements that included AMC’s The Walking Dead, HBO’s True Blood, NBC’s Parenthood, and FX’s Sons of Anarchy. While his music filtered through various television shows, his live performance has led to sold out shows at famous L.A. venues like The Roxy, The Troubadour, and the House of Blues. His track Shoot First recently won the Production Music Award for Best Rock Song. His music is a mixed bag of alternative rock fused with blues and pop influences that fearlessly explores the darker side of human nature.

On his debut single, “Crazy,” TJ relies on the power of his intense presence. His voice howls across the growing darkness, as pounding percussion and an atmospheric air of uncertainty create a visceral feel. Aching guitar burns alongside a languid, hypnotic melody until it explodes with aggression. It’s the perfect introduction to a songwriter insistent on exploring the parts of himself that others keep buried deep down inside.

The Lyrical Loner | “Alone By Choice” x Jango


Jango presents Alone By Choice, Jango’s latest mixtape produced by Jimmy Hill of Amplified Wax, the production house responsible for a platinum record for Matthew Koma, as well as collaborations with Myles Kennedy and Eva Simons. Whether Jango is spitting over a banging beat or giving his vocals over a smooth sound, this Pacific Northwest-based rapper/singer makes a bold statement with each track.

Born in Connecticut, Jango’s first mixtape was The Pursuit, and he has toured with Crooked I and Eazy E3.

Jango describes Alone By Choice as “a statement. I wanted my fans and friends to understand that it’s okay to be alone. So many people find depression and helplessness in being alone when in fact they should be able to find some happiness by appreciating and loving themselves. The project was inspired after the passing of my best friend Cam, who last year chose suicide to end his life. I hated that he had made that decision but I understood why. He was alone and couldn’t find happiness by himself. My goal and point to this project is to save everyone else from this mindset. No one can love you better then yourselves, and nobody should ever be able to tear you down. It’s your life, it’s your choices, and ultimately your happiness.”
