Artist Nadia Vaeh aligns with a cause with the release of her single ‘Spellbinding’, where all proceeds with go to the organisation Peace Over Violence

Nadia Vaeh is a singer-songwriter originally from Atlanta who creates conscious-pop music by aligning each song with a purpose and a cause.

With her new single ‘Spellbinding’, all proceeds will be going to Peace Over Violence, an organisation that helps people flee toxic homes and relationships where abuse may be present.

‘Spellbinding’ tells the story of the struggle of escaping a lover who seduces with an enticing yet familiar “weird magic”. It is set to a unique pop/rock vibe with an 80s flair.

She is also an IMA “Vox Pop” winner and although her love for music stemmed from a very young age, it was through her modelling and when she joined a local Atlanta circus; where she started singing professionally in their productions, that she started taking her artistry to the next level.

Vaeh’s songwriting has always been cathartic and has helped her work through many adversities, including the death of her mother

With her endless resilience, she has grown into a performer, has had her music recently played on international radio, and is looking forward to sharing more of her music in the U.S. and around the world.

Hip Hop artist Fishscale Wooly has released his new album Made In Italy with tracks you can dance, work, party or workout to.

Hip Hop artist Fishscale Wooly released his new album Made In Italy at the end of last year.

The idea of the project came about when he saw the correlation between wearing designer clothes made in Italy and his brand.
Those clothes are very expensive and I find my brand being expensive, like it was Made in Italy so that’s where the name came from.” says the rapper.

This 16 track album boasts a display of super catchy choruses, while having great soundtracks to drive, party, dance, workout, or listen to. The album also features exciting collaborations with artists like Trayvon Pass, Runna, King Shy, Mak Sauce, BlaxxOneHunnid, Wordplayy and Only1yk.

The Phil Mitchell Band release new album which is an evolving mixture of genres and styles showing off the versatility of the group

Phil Mitchell is a composer, author and musician hailing from Chicago and started writing songs at a very young age. He writes music in an eclectic range of genres including jazz, classical, RnB, rock, blues and country.

He formed the Phil Mitchell Band in 2004 and they have performed at a variety of venues whilst recording music in the studio.

Their new album, A Better World, consists of eleven tracks.

The second track ‘Never Let It Die’ is an euphoric rock anthem with an instantly memorable title hook, featuring a magnificent vocal performance and more killer lead guitar.

‘My Love Is True’ is a female sung pop track with a soul/RnB influence which keeps it sounding modern. Musically, it’s a blend of tight, funky guitars and overdriven Rhodes electric piano.

The title track is a James Taylor/Simon and Garfunkel style acoustic ballad with an intimate and heartfelt lead male vocal, counterpointed by female backing vocals. The arrangement gradually builds to a mid paced groove with some exotic instrumentation that gives real richness and variety to the sonic texture.

‘God Bless this Child’ features some strong vocals by Natasha Shayenne. The ninth track The World Is A Beautiful Place is a change of pace; a toe tapping funk pop track with Nile Rodgers-type slick guitar and some superb drumming. The second section has some adventurous chord changes that show the deep harmonic knowledge behind the songwriting, yet it still works simply as just a very catchy pop track.

This is a hugely eclectic and wide range of songs unified by the artistic vision of Phil Mitchell. The album runs the gamut of human emotions, all expressed through a constantly evolving mixture of genres and styles. The mixture of male and female vocals also adds to the variety.

Independent record label Jet City Records makes major debut with ‘City of the Jets’ album

Canada continues to change the game, first Drake, now with independent label Jet City Records’ debut album ‘City of the Jets.’

Music has long been praised by artists for saving them from the path they once walked and giving them an outlet through the tough moments in life. Independent record label Jet City Records, also known as Jet City is using their love of hip hop to touch the world. With the dark place the world is in due to the Covid pandemic, many have suffered, and many more are suffering. Jet City has chosen this time to debut their first
album amid the crisis as a means to not only survive the lockdown but help the world navigate through it with their sound.

Jet city records is an indigenous/ Black-owned label from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada that began its journey in 2019. It’s artists and founder all share the same vision and purpose, to use music to better the world and reach those who need it most.

The label comprises of artists Loco 2k, Nucky Jmc, Big Ox, Rup Monsta and founder and ex-drug dealer Nigel Pahl, now known as Mic North. North is a testament to the power music has to spark change and find a way out of crime and poverty.
Since his release from jail in 2011, music has continued to be his
gateway from his past and the catalyst to a brighter positive future.
With his life turning a new leaf, he has not only founded Jet City, but is an advocate for the youth with his youth-based workshop series ‘Maps Workshops.’

To date, Jet City has released a total of 21 music videos and their undeniable talent and genuine character has brought them a dedicated fanbase that continues to expand. Jet City has had its fair share of hardships throughout the pandemic not being able to perform and make the income they otherwise would, but their aim in hip-hop isn’t for wealth and fame, but to use their love of the genre to create songs that can help someone get through whatever storms they are enduring. To this end, they have also created their podcast ‘Hip Hop is Life’ to connect with their fans and be present through these trying times.

With the 13-track album making its arrival on January 1st, Jet City has released two singles, ‘Highs and Lows’ and ‘Moment.’ Each serve as a medicine to the world. The first, ‘Highs and Lows’ discusses the brutal reality of suicide and the tragedy of the missing, murdered men and women across Canada and the world. The accompanying music video is scheduled for release on January 15th and features Nucky Jmc, Ag Souljah and Mic North delivering an uplifting final verse. Nucky Jmc is currently enjoying the success of his number one hit ‘Forever’ on the Indigenous Music Countdown while Ag Souljah who is also an Indigenous artist is making moves creating his lane as a dope and talented artist.

The second single ‘Moment’ revolves around love and being the moment with a special someone. It features a smooth hook from Loco 2k, and a bridge of similar depth by Aye Michelle while Mic north and Rup Monsta does their thing on the verses.

City of the Jets shares production between elite producer/owner Rup Monsta who handles 80% of production, 19-year-old CCIV, and Peshawn kelly also from Winnipeg, Manitoba. This potent combination of talent gives the album a sound unique to Winnipeg, coining it as Boom Trap, boom-bap sample sound with trap style drums. Jet City is the face of hip-hop in Winnipeg and distinguishing the sound of their city from the competition. As the world submerges in their powerhouse album, Jet City also has solo albums planned from every artist on their roster. With their dedication and love for hip-hop, the future may be seeing a new label at the top soon.

Phaze 3’s new album “A Warrior’s Call” speaks of the strength and resoluteness that having faith has brought her.

It’s often hard to find a good, strong Gospel artist these days who is as abundantly talented and dedicated to her music as Phaze3.

Phaze3 is an up-and-coming artist who combines several genres, her focus being mainly on trap, rap, and of course Gospel. Having first discovered her passion for music while singing in the church chorus in her hometown, Phaze3 has kept her connection with the church strong, and you can clearly see that in her music.

Her latest release, the album so appropriately entitled “A Warrior’s Call” speaks of her faith, and of the strength and resoluteness that faith has brought with it. As a World Religious Leader and a spiritual healer, Phaze3 has seen a lot of what the world has to offer, both in good and bad and she deftly combines all her knowledge to put together this new masterful album of Gospel.

A vibrant and ecstatic display of faith and inner strength that beautifully brings Gospel into the 21st century. If you were under the mistaken impression that this was a genre abandoned in the past, you simply need to listen to “A Warrior’s Call” a couple of times to see that Gospel is alive and well.

“Cosign” is part musical call to arms, part sermon, no doubt inspired by the many group prayers that the artist has led over the years. It is an infectiously happy and positive song that rapidly gets into your bones and enthralls you.

“The Perils”, on the other hand, comes across as much softer while showcasing two different parts of Phaze3 – the soft, melodious Gospel tone, and the hardcore, street rapping style. These two come together beautifully to highlight the duality of humanity, and especially of this beautiful, wonderfully versatile artist.

“A Warrior’s Call” is an album you want to put on if you’re feeling down or stuck in a rut, and what truly astounds is that it’s just as meaningful an album to the agnostic listener as it is to a devout believer.

It’s a great offering that touches on our humanity and strives to bring us together in this age of division. A truly masterful offering from a highly gifted artist.
