I come from a musical family. My father is in a band with his brothers since he was about 8 years old. My sister and I write songs. My cousin raps, and 3 other cousins sing as well. My sister Maria and Alexa can sing, I can sing too but not as strong. ...more
The new and beautiful voice of pop and rock is none other than Danielle Antonio, and her new single shatters all expectations! Antonio is an expert storyteller and songwriter that laces these talents with a beautiful voice, and the effect is amazing. I became a fan as soon I listened to her old album “New Elements” and I haven’t doubted her since. Her new single “Freedom and Philosophy” follows in the wake of an already stellar album and shatters the notion that artists can’t get better with time....more
Keyboardist for The Moody Blues, Alan Hewitt, is set to release an incredible new album as Alan Hewitt & One Nation. I have always been an avid fan of Alan Hewitt’s work, especially his knack for songwriting. Hewitt is a renowned multi-platinum composer, writer and producer, with lots of years of experience under his belt. I am a hundred percent sure that this next body of work will live up to and surpass all expectations....more

Then I made some friends, and quite often we were compelled to dance to “Sweet Child of Mine” until 1 a.m. It left very little time for recording my thoughts, unfortunately. As it turns out, reflection isn’t a priority when one is counting down to Steak Night in the cafeteria....more
In my opinion, there is no one who can hate on Taylor Swift (though Kanye definitely tried). She is young, fresh, fun and one of the only younger female artists who didn't originate from the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon. Boys love her, girls want to be her best friend, and people from all ethnic backgrounds can be caught with one of her catchy songs from her 1989 album in their heads.
Whenever I listen to James Taylor, all I can think of is singer songwriter John McAndrew. Musically, they give off the same vibe which I really like. I’ve always been a James Taylor fan, so it was nice to find a current new artist making music in the same vein that I really enjoyed. Just like Taylor, John McAndrew’s words and his voice combine to form an overtly revealing experience which should please anyone’s musical palette....more
