Artist Review: Katie Veltri – “Catch Me” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Bringing acoustic grooves and rhythmic Blues to the forefront with sensual vocal techniques that speak to the soul, recording artist Katie Veltri encompasses new ambient territory with her newest single “Catch Me”.

“Catch Me” is definitely catchy. It’s a timeless track with jazzy guitar chord progressions that really facilitate the anthemic vocal melodies to make each measure really count. Katie‘s voice is tender, natural, and really puts emphasis on how she projects every line of her clever lyrics this song has to offer as the track plays out. The guitars also have a spiciness and aura that brings a true uniqueness to the modern rhythm this song blends in. It shares a classic feel while still embracing a modern take on today’s more versatile pop-infused genres.

Put simply, this song is very hard to dislike. It has very powerful vocals that shine bright in the forefront. Katie‘s voice not only has an impressive range, but also projects a multifaceted nature as well that really showcases her talent very effectively. “Catch Me”, accompanied by a lyric video, is a song that shares equal parts originality and familiarity – it has that classic signature sound that you’ve come to know and love throughout many years, as well as today’s more notable mainstream edge that resonates with more modern music styles. Katie Veltri will definitely reel you in with “Catch Me”.

Artist Review: Alpha Circle – “Sweet Talking Time” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky & Bethany Stephenson

Alpha Circle is no stranger to our platform. Their debut single “Circles” received considerable acclaim and praise among our readers and music community at large. The song has launched their career in a way that has gotten the band to hit the ground running and garner the attention of Alt/Rock fans from all walks of life. With their new subsequent single, “Sweet Talking Time”, Alpha Circle proves that they continue to set the bar higher each time they hit the studio.

This Alt/Rock piano-driven track is more anthemic than anything. Reminiscent of early 2000’s Coldplay releases with touches of Mae and Copeland’s “You Are My Sunshine”, Alpha Circle have once again utilized a very collective and innovative signature sound that is prioritized by above average songwriting structures and melody choices; especially with the vocals. This ballad-like single is subtle during its verses with a charming and soothing lead vocal melody that immediately engages the listener’s undivided attention. All building up to a chorus that ties the song together in a way that reminds you that Alpha Circle puts their songwriting skills high on the priority list and proves that it’s all about the song structures rather than production theatrics – which gives them a true identity of the band’s authenticity and natural talent.

“Sweet Talking Time” portrays lyrics that delve deeply into the song’s subject matter at hand, but not to the point of attempting to be poetry. The lyrical narrative really drives the aura and emotional plea the music provides and really demonstrates a parallel between the music and lyrics altogether. The piano intro really sets the tone on this track and carries significant weight throughout the song’s duration,

Once again we have impressive work coming from each band member that holds a key to the group’s solidified sound and musical aura. The chord structures are full and composed to fruition with an impressively tightly-knit rhythm section that has complimentary bass lines that are smooth and perfectly maintained by the skillful drum parts that are both simple and effective. It’s a vast array of emotions coming from each element the group puts together and in the end, hones a craft that puts Alpha Circle far beyond your average Alt/Rock group. Their indie approach and straightforward production value perfectly demonstrates the band’s ability in this song as well as natural talent as a collective unit.

“Sweet Talking Time” is a triumphant follow-up single and truly adds to Alpha Circle‘s direction as a group. Each release they’ve put out has strongly showcased the band’s ability as both songwriters and performers as a whole. And if you enjoyed their previous single, this one will definitely get you even more invested into them. If Alpha Circle keeps this kind of momentum going, then they will be seeing big things on the horizon. No doubt about it.

Artist Review: Wolfe Black – “Runaway” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

When it comes to natural beauty, unwavering talent and insatiable passion for her craft, Wolfe Black is quite the trifecta. And it really shows on her newest atmospheric single “Runaway”.

Originally hailing from the landscapes of Australia, Wolfe Black has been establishing her musical foundation in the Montreal music scene in Canada, and so far has hit the ground running. Armed with this first single, a regional buzz and word of mouth, Black has been laying down the groundwork for big things in her horizon and “Runaway” is direct evidence of this.

Drawing a nostalgic reminiscence to award winning artists like Enigma, Sia and those alike, Black really focuses on bringing forth an atmosphere that is magical and musically sensual. Her vocal range is showcased very diligently and shines bright on every element this song conjures up throughout the duration of this single. Her melody choices are effective, her vocal approach is authentic and natural, and the overall production value of this song really shines the spotlight on Wolfe Black‘s signature exotic sound.

This is not only a song, it’s an emotional journey; one of those tracks that you can feel as it plays out. Black has one of those voices that can guide you, and she really takes the lead on this fresh single from start to finish. Another important component of this song is the consistency; there is a vibrant edge that touches on melodic swells, subtle simmers, as well as buildups that never let you down. It has a structure that is more adventurous than it is formulaic; which gives it the charm it needs to retain the staying power all hit singles should possess.

This is not your average single, and Wolfe Black is not your run-of-the-mill Pop singer. She truly breathes life into her music and harbors a passion that immediately draws you in. “Runaway” is one of those songs that will soothe the body, the mind, and remind you that you can get lost in the moment at any time. Just close your eyes and let this song absorb into you – you’ll see (and hear) exactly why Wolfe Black is an artist to be keeping an eye out for.

Artist Review: The Keymakers – “Good For You” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


R&B the way it should be, and a groove that was meant to make you move.

Dynamic duo, The Keymakers, are some very talented voices contributing to the R&B and Hip Hop flow that makes artists like these guys stand out in versatile ways with a signature sound that could easily appease both old school R&B fans, and new sensibilities. A sound that’s integrated in natural production value between the duo with their current buzzing single, “Good For You”. A track of sensuality and a great showcase of both voices honing their craft in order to do their part as a duo with a duality approach. It’s a brilliant mix for any avid listener of the R&B good nature along with the rhyme and flow that beautifully drives this song forward.

There’s many twists and turns in different ways with many different dynamics that The Keymakers succumb to. You can hear many artist influences, but there’s a vibe and natural persona that absolutely puts likability factors in the forefront with the duo. It only takes one listen to really hear the witty edge and nostalgic factors that these two bring to the table, and really bring their own vocal structures and melodic executions right where they can grasp at your heart, ears, and mind. “Good For You” is definitely the song for you. A song with drive, diversity, both indie and mainstream sensibilities, and with the right marketing and getting this song out to the correct people (hint: That’s where WE come in), “Good For You” just might bring some good for The Keymakers future prospects. We can hear the potential loud and clear.

Artist Review: Kozie – “Fly” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh


A melodic exercise in insatiable ambience.

With a soothing sound with influences stemming from artists such as ColdPlay and John Mayer, Kozie‘s single “Fly” is a song that gives you the best back rub you’ve ever felt. The vocals are very well structured, dynamically mixed, and comes with a range that makes the best of melodies possible. The chorus, especially, is a memorable and uplifting highlight that helps define the centerpiece of the song’s entirety. A song that stays with you, and makes you eager to hear more of what Kozie has to offer.

The production value is exactly where it needs to be. It’s a track of many positive moods that leads you through the artistic merit between the musicianship of the band, and the perfectly-executed vocals that tie it all together. It oozes with a dynamic form of creativity that sucks you into the realm of what this song really brings to the table.

You can hear influences from the 80s and 90s era, along with today’s sensibility. But when you truly take this song in with a cleared head, it displays abundant talent that has a very powerful signature sound among the group’s musicianship, structures, and overall execution of something you haven’t quite heard yet. It’s a standalone gem among its genre, and has endless likability factors.

“Fly” is one of those songs that will stick with you, and will never get old no matter how many times you hear it. It’s a multifaceted and modernized classic with traditions of how music is most effective in the universal Alt/Rock sound. Once you take a listen to Kozie yourself, you’ll see, hear, and feel exactly what we mean.

Artist Review: Guest Actors – “By Demand” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


When it comes to simple musical formulas that can leave the biggest impact, Guest Actors’ single, “By Demand”, is the one of those songs that demonstrate this method perfectly.

With a subtle and ambient sound that portrays love, sensuality, and a realm of emotion, Guest Actors, from Tel Aviv, encompass a very effective and well-executed signature sound that keeps you listening and more interested each time you listen to this particular single. Their traditional song structure and chord progressions in this song leave plenty of room for incredible vocal melodies that give this track the power it needs to warm your heart and soothe your ears.

It’s a track that isn’t smothered in post-production obnoxiousness. It’s a chemistry among the quartet that speaks volumes and focuses on songwriting that is more effective and astonishingly catchy rather than experimental or genre-bending. It’s a beautiful track and sounds more like an anthem rather than just another song. A very blissful showcase of moods from start to finish with an impression on you that will be anything but a letdown.

Guest Actors are a breath of fresh air. A band that lets us know that spectacular songwriting still exists and proving that it’s the simple things that can have the biggest effect on you. And that’s one of the defining factors that makes “By Demand” the gem that it really is.
