Contemporary folk rock musician Amanda Barrick announces the launch of their debut album, Wastelands, set for release on July 31st. Written over two decades and in locations across the United States, Wastelands is an amalgamation of Barrick’s emergence as an artist coming into their own.

Having grown up in the LDS faith as a queer person, Amanda Barrick weaves themes of religious oppression, redefining spirituality, romantic love–and ultimately self-acceptance–throughout Wastelands. Barrick deftly showcases their talent as a spoken word artist in two tracks, “Cool Dad” and “Biochemistry,” and covers Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” with hypnotic ease. However, at the core of the album resides Americana folk rock that is reminiscent of artists such as Brandi Carlile, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, and Joan Baez–all the while remaining unmistakably Amanda Barrick.

Amanda also navigates uncharted territory in launching Wastelands: emerging as a new artist during a global pandemic. While Barrick has begun to make the rounds in their local music scene prior to the COVID-19 shutdown of bars and music venues, they continue headfirst into spreading messages of acceptance, individuality and personal growth through their music online and, of course, through Wastelands.

“As many people have done, I continue to work through the challenges of adversity in my past, and I’m
proud to be the resilient artist I am today,” said Barrick. “That resiliency is propelling me artistically during
a time when so much is uncertain. I’m continuing with the release of Wastelands, even in a time when
many would say it’s unwise to try to break into the music scene.

I hope that people understand that this is all a testament to how much I believe in my work, and how much I want to share it with others. One of my favorite things about music, it’s the gift that keeps giving.”
Wastelands is currently available for pre-order via Bandcamp and the artist’s website.

The album’s lead singles, “Big Sur,” “Biochemistry,” and “Wastelands,” are currently available on Spotify, Apple Music.

With a seductive sensual melody this one will surely help raise the awareness of maintaining and building serious relationships with whose in your inner circle. A long-time friend interceding for his best friend interest; yet offering his love. Shallow relationships can only go so far. To love the one you’re with, takes commitment beyond physical attraction. There is no reason to be caught up in a three-way entanglement. Healthy, non-toxic relationships is what we all need.  

There’s a thin line of what true love is. To become emotionally charged in someone else’s love affairs is not a wise choice. But, to be their support partner with sound practical advice without being physical is a wise thing to do. PleasureMore approach through music is to help build healthy and meaningful relationships without toxic drama. Can you love the one you’re with; without having another lover on the side? “Love is kind, does not envy, does not parade itself, is not puffed, does not behave rudely, or seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in sin, but rejoices in the truth; bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things, Love never fails.” I Corinthians 13 4:4-8a.

PleasureMore latest single “I Can’t Tell Ya” is a song of friendship, honesty, and total commitment with the one you are currently with and making your relationship work. It is through the power of music, love and hope that makes the world go round. Continue to listen, laugh, love, and live your life to its fullest. Though, I Can’t Tell Ya, how to run your life.

The new single ‘Alive’ from ‘Giles’ with it’s excellent classy and sleek production, soulful voice and big beats is on the Hollywood FM digital playlist now

The head of music for said he loved the new single ‘Alive’ from ‘Giles’ with it’s excellent classy and sleek production, soulful voice and big beats that keep you grooving all the way through to the end. The single is now on the daily playlist.

Few doubt the talents of Alvin Giles. He is an accomplished producer, audio engineer, arranger, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter. After a ten-year hiatus, and under a new moniker; Giles, formally known as Vthov, makes his return as a musical artist.

Blending genres like a pro, Giles fuses hip hop, r&b, and soul with a myriad of intriguing elements from other genres. While his resume proves he can perfect any style, he returns to his hip hop roots for “Alive.”

“I’m reintroducing the world to me as an artist and feel that ‘Alive’ perfectly encapsulates what I have to offer,” said Giles.

“While seeing my contemporaries’ careers grow, it felt like my career as a rapper was dead. I needed a reboot,” he said. “‘Alive’ is first, a message to me. I’m letting myself know that I am standing on the shoulders of giants and have what it takes. I can overcome adversity.”

But after ten years, can Giles get back in the game as a contender?

While the world is coming out of a long pandemic, Giles’s return could not be timelier – and he delivers. “We’ve all suffered,” he said. “This pandemic is the first time in modernity that the human race can unite under the shared title of survivor.”

Back Rank Records will drop the single on March 11th, along with a lyric video on streaming platforms. Giles is the CEO and founder of Back Rank Records.

“Alive” begins with a soulful keyboard and is transformed into a big synth anthem. Giles takes listeners on a trip over the decades to create a timeless classic. Giles combines soulful vibes and hip-hop elements to create “Alive.” From the energetic big synth hook to the verse that flows with groovy 70s keyboard licks, the bass drum is the track’s heartbeat. When you think the song cannot get any better, Giles throws in some rock power chords for good measure making the hook explode with energy.

“My hip hop seeks musicality via instrumentation, chord progressions, and basslines,” explained Giles. “I write songs with rich melodies and harmonies as the framework.”

Sonically Giles’ style stands out, but there is more to his music – a deep meaning resonates in “Alive.”

“There’s so much clout and swag rapping, but for me, there is so much more that hip hop can bring instead of just talking shit. My music is introspective and self-reflecting. I dive deeper than just material possession and machismo,” said Giles.

Born and raised in Orlando, Giles’s mission is to bring music to the people. He hits all the marks with “Alive” that exceeds its lyrical context and propels him back into the industry as a performer to watch.

“‘Alive’ is very relevant for the times we are living in. It’s an anthem for people who feel they need a win,” said Giles. “When you hear the chorus, you’ll want to get back in the game, and get that W.”

While Giles plans to release more singles in the future, listeners love the 3:33 minutes of “Alive.”

“This song is for people who have suffered, which is all of us,” he said. “Hopefully, ‘Alive’ can reach the underdogs of the world and put a little wind in their sails.”

Make sure to stay connected to Giles on all platforms for new music, videos, and social posts.
