“GUILTY OF BEING INCREDIBLE”

As began to listen to embark on my next music review, I came across a music artist named Sherma Andrews, and wow what a voice! One of two albums one of the albums is called “Legendary Lady Singer, which features Sherma  performing all the lady singers from the past and present and Sherma has that voice, that quite simply put incredible”

Sherma Andrews with her album called “Guilty” from 2010. What a royal treat for the ears. Amazing and incredible. The first track called “Run” and what a gorgeous voice. The song is so amazing and Sherma kicks in her incredible voice that oozes beauty. The next song is called “Something ‘Bout The Way You Love Me” and once again Sherma arrives with a boom and that incredible vocal range that is amazing and sounds wonderful. With all this complete goodness, Sherma Andrews has that amazing and almost enchanting voice that carries you away with her as she sings her songs. Track three a song called “You’ll Never Know” has a sound that is unmatched and Sherma nails the notes to the “T’ with a capitol “S” Sheez. As I listened further to the album and the song called “Lost” Sherma just continued to amaze me and keep my ears wide open for pure beauty and complete procession of her vocals all the way to the end.

Sherma has a voice of all the legends and throughout this miraculous album she brings a little of each in every song. A great example of this is the next song called “Here” and I can here so much of the legendary ladies in her style and really love this song. A love ballad that keeps you glued to your speakers.

“The next song must be a song that was inspired by Sherma’s father as I can feel the passion and the major conviction in the lyrics. Her arranging and production values that are just amazing and beautiful. “Insane” another example of beauty coupled with purity and that ability to bring your ears and body into the music. “Rain’ another song that carries you through Sherma and her pure honesty & simplistic way of singing and interpreting the music. It arrives from her tremendous writing capabilities and arrives from her heart. “Guilty” another amazing beautiful and smoothly polished to perfection song that Sherma allows you to really hear and absorb her ability to convey her message through her tremendous and marvelous vocal ability and songwriting. “Talk to Me” Sherma takes on a hint of the late legendary singer & songwriter Donna Summer’ but remains within her own styling that adds a element of total vulnerability to her beautiful vocals. Sherma carries her emotions with the song called “Looking For Something” and really makes her statement come alive within this song. She shows heart, and true pureness and incredible vocal diversity and the song once again brings you along for the ride and kept my ears entertained throughout.

On the last song “I will Love You In This Song’ Sherma has an almost Barbara Streisand feel to it, but has a style that remains to be who Sherma is as a singer and a songwriter and an amazing and incredible vocalist. Sherma has that sound that brings in the immediate appeal in an almost Whitney Houston approach, however Sherma is the real deal, and has a style of her own that brought me to her level, where in every song on this album was an incredible, and most entertaining. I would like to thank Sherma Andrews for taking through this musical journey that brought me through her perspective on what matters to her, and  filled my heart with joy. I look forward to hearing her amazing vocal arrangements and incredible voice on the radio soon.

“POLISHED TO PERFECTION”

I have been “following the Indie pop sensational band named this Sharon Lia Band. They have always been very impressive to me. With this being said, I set my sights and ears to write a review on her latest single “Why Can’t We Pretend”, The song is purely magical and powerful. Sharon’s vocals are strong. vivid and amazing. this quite honestly is an amazing song. There are (many) music artists out there and despite this in my opinion the Sharon Lia Band is one to be watched and one to be seen with in the “mainstream” flow of popular music today.

Not only is the Sharon Lia Band a powerful force within the industry, it will be a household name. I must add that what originally attracted me to the band was a song called “Dancing In The Rain”

Sharon has strong beliefs, and one of those early on I loved and respected that she had the sense of belonging and survivorship, experiencing various situations in her own personal life, Sharon and her creation of “Rock 4 A Cause” that assists in supporting various charitable causes. In my 32 years of writing music album reviews, Sharon Lia and her band stand for what life is all about, always assisting others and promoting it with (her) god given talent’s.

To get back to the element of Sharon’s amazing music the latest song “Why Can’t We Pretend” is a wonderful and amazing song. Sharon brings her amazing and powerful yet  purely magical vocal arrangements on this beautiful song and in my opinion totally deserves your affection and full attention. The song has purpose and Sharon Lia and her band have blown  the top off with this latest single called “Why Can’t We Pretend”. I love it and you will also. I thank  Sharon for her tremendous friendship and most gracious life story and above all her tremendous impurely magical gift of music.

“DARK PUNCHES AND FAST MUSIC”

THERE’S A BAND THAT I WAS TURNED ONTO A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, AND QUITE HONESTLY IT TOOK ME A LITTLE WHILE TO FORM A REVIEW ABOUT THEM. THE BAND “FLUFFER’ THE ALBUM “WORLD’S ON FIRE” A TERXTURED AND MILDLY DARK ALBUM THAT HAS RHYTHM A WHOLE LOT OF DEEP TONES THAT KEEP THE FOOT TAPPING ON THE DESK. THE FIRST SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “BEG, STEAL OR BORROW”, AND FOR A MINUTE THE LEAD SINGERS VOCALS REMINDED ME OF EARLY BILLY IDOLISH, BUT HAS THE GUITAR RIFFS OF EARLY GENERATION X. THE GUITARS RIP FROM THE BEGINNING & DON’T LET LOOSE UNTIL THEY’VE RUN THEIR GAMMET ON YOUR EARS. THE NEXT SONG CALLED ” REVENGE’ THE SAME TONE. THE BAND EVOLVES WITH LEAD VOCALS OF ROBERT TROSINO AND HAS A SOUND OF BANG TO IT, THERE ARE SOME FANCY GUITAR LICKS PLANTED DEEP WITHIN THE  SONG. THE LYRICS ARE REAL FEELINGS AND HAVE EMOTION RUNNING THROUGH THEIR VEINS. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “FALSE FLAG” HAS A PUNKISH FEEL TO IT,  BUT WITH A MESSAGE AND BRINGS IT LOUD AND CLEAR. WITH THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “FOLLOW ME DOWN” THE GUITAR SHOW NO SIGN OF GIVING UP, AND TROSINO KEEPS THE BANGING JUICE THOUGHOUT. ROBERT & HIS MESSAGES AND GIFT OF SONGWRITING, THAT SEEMS TO HAVE A DARK ELEMENT THROUGHOUT. “FADE AWAY” HAS A SOUND THAT IS UNIQUE AND THE GUITAR BASED BAND SHOWS AWESOME GUITAR TECHNIQUE THAT HAS A ECHO AND THE USE OF REVERB AND RHYTHM GUITAR THAT SOUNDS REALLY SMOOTH AND BRINGS A UNIQUE TWIST TO THE ROCKERS OF TODAYS MUSIC. THE SPEED CONTINUES WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “BLOOD ON THE SHEETS” WHERE THE BEAT AND GUITARS CONTINUE TO RIP THROUGH THE SONG AND ADD PUNCH AND JABS TO THE GUT AS YOU LISTEN. “EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF HATE” A SONG THAT FOLLOWS ALL PREVIOUS SONGS ON THIS AMAZINGLY AND FAST PACED ALBUM, THAT IS QUITE RELENTLESS, WHEN IT COMES TO THE GUITAR LICKS AND DOSN’T SEEM TO LET YOUR EAR MUSCLES REST. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “DON’T BLAME ME” IS ANOTHER RIGHT FROM THE GET GO, THE GUITAR RIP RIGHT THROUGH AND BEGAN STRUMMING AND BLAST OUT WITH A STRUMMING ACTION THAT RESEMBLES THE BAND CALLED THE CULT, HOWEVER,  WITH A HEAVIER DOSE OF STRONG STRUMMING. WITH THIS BEING SAID, THE NEXT SONG CALLED “AGAIN” ROBERT TROSINO AND FELLOW FLUFFERS TONY DEMORE AND THUNDERIN’ JOE HAYES, REALLY PACK YOUR EARS WITH FULL OUT HEAVINESS AND PARDON THE TERM NO FLUFF INVOLVED. THE BAND HAS A CATCHY FLARE AND KEEPS THE FOOT TAPPING GOING ON THROUGHOUT.THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “STARVE THE SINNER” THE DARKER SIDE COMES OUT AND GUITARS STILL CONTINUE TO RIP THROUGH MY EARS AND NEVER GIVE UP. IT SEEMS AS IF THE LYRICS AND WORDS OF SONGS WERE WELL THOUGHT AND THE BAND FLUFFER HAS A MESSAGE THROUGHOUT THEIR MUSIC CATALOG AND COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR ON EVERY SONG. AT LAST THE TITLE TRACK CALLED “WORLD’S ON FIRE” STARTS OUT WITH A SPACEY KIND OF KEYBOARD TO CLEANSE THE MUSIC PALLET & ONLY TO OPEN UP AND GIVE YOU THE PUNCH AND FLAVOR OF WHO FLUFFER IS AS A BAND, A HEAVY AND FULL OF HEART POUNDING, FIST CLENCHING MUSIC WITH A LITTLE ANGST ALONG THE WAY. THE LAST SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “IDENTITY CRISIS’ HAS A MELODIC AND KEEPS THE THEME OF HEAVY AND DARK BUT RHYMICALLY WELL DONE. THE GUITAR DRIVEN AND CONTINUAL BEAT OF THE DRUMS BECOMES WHAT THIS BAND IS, A REALLY HARD DRIVEN AND YET CATCHY RIFFS THAT KEEP THE EYELIDS WIDE OPEN AND READY TO CATCH YOU WHEN YOU AREN’T AWARE AND KICK YOU RIGHT WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE OR ATLEAST A SWIFT GUT WRENCHING PUNCH. I THANK ROBERT TROSINO AND THE BAND FLUFFER FOR THEIR MUSICAL CONTRIBUTION AND LOOKING FORWARDS TO HEARING MORE FROM THEM IN THE FUTURE.  I ALSO THANK ROBERT FOR HIS FRIENDSHIP AND OTHERS WHO HAVE MADE ME AWARE OF A BAND WITH NO FLUFF ATTACHED.

“MAGNETIC LOVE THROUGH SONG”

AS I LISTENED TO THE LATEST MUISCAL CONTRIBUTION BY MUSIC ARTIST MELISSA ROBERTSON AND HER AWE INSPIRING AND WONDERFUL ALBUM CALLED “LITTLE COUNTRY LIFE”. THE FIRST SONG ON THE ALBUM IS CALLED “LITTLE COUNTRY LIFE” AND THE SONG HAS A REAL FEEL OF COUNTRY FLAVOR WITH FIDDLE AND THE SONG HAS A SOUND THAT MAKES YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. MELISSA AND HER VOICE ADD THE ELEMENT OF A DOWN HOME APPROACH. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “MAKE LOVE TO ME”, A BALLAD THAT MELISSA BRINGS IN A REAL EMOTIONAL SOUND THAT MAKES IT REAL AND SHOWS HER TRUE SONGWRITTING ABILITIES THROUGHOUT. AS I LISTENED I NOTICED THAT MELISSA HAS STRONG STORY TELLING ABILITES THAT PROJECT THROUGHOUT HER MUSICAL ASSORTMENT OF SONGS ON THIS AMAZING AND REALLY LOVELY ALBUM. WITH THE NEXT SONG STARTING OUT CALLED “RED HEAD AT HEART” REALLY BRINGS IN THE TWANG OF COUNTRY WITH THE FIDDLE  AND THE REAL FEEL OF A GREAT COUNTRY SENSATIONAL SONG. MELISSA HAS GOT A VOICE THAT IS SMOOTH AND POLISHED AND ONE THAT MAKES YOUR EARS WANTING MORE. MELISSA, HAS A SOUND THAT IS SIMPLE YET BETWEEN HER LYRICS AND HER SIMPLISTIC VOCALS THAT MAKE A SOUND THAT IS AMAZING AND LOVELY TO HEAR . “LOVE LIKE A RIVER” A GORGOEOUS LOVE SONG THAT BOTH MELISSA ROBERTSON AND IAN BURNS BRING IN A REAL FEEL OF CONNECTION WITH THE TRUE MEANING OF A GREAT CLASSIC LOVE SONG, THE MUSIC IS UNBELIEVEABLE AND ALLOWS YOUR HEART TO FOLLOW IT.

A REALLY GREAT SONG AND ONCE AGAIN SHOWCASES MELISSA’S WRITING AND MUSICALITY THAT IS SOUND AND SUPERBLY MATCHED.WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEXT SONG, IT HAS THE ABLITY TO TOUCH ME THE SONG CALLED “HE’S A WRITER OF SONGS” AND JUST HIT ME, SINCE I AM A WRITER AND REMINDED OF MYSELF. MELISSA VOCALS JUST ARE AMAZING AND HER VOICE IS SOFT ON THE EARS AND DRAW YOU IN TO JOIN THEM AS YOU LISTEN. THE SONG CALLED “WAY BACK HOME” MELISSA TAKES ON A SOUND OF SHANIA TWAIN VOCALLY, BUT WITH THIS BEING SAID,  MELISSA HAS HER OWN STYLE AND ONCE AGAIN MELISSA PLEADS WITH YOU TO OPEN YOUR HEART TO HER. MELISSA’S  VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING AND MASTERFUL AND VERY TOUCHING TO MY SOUL AND REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART. AS I LISTENED TO THE ALBUM I NOTICED THAT MELISSA HAS A WAY OF BRINGING YOU IN WITH HER VOCALS THAT IS DRIVEN AND HAS PERFECTION AND HER LYRICS ARE WRITTEN FROM THE HEART, I AM ABLE TO FEEL THIS SINCE I AM A WRITER THAT WRITES FROM THE HEART AS WELL. THE SONG “WILD WILD FLOWER” MELISSA TAKES ON A LITTLE ROUGHER EDGY, BUT NICE SOUND THAT ADDS TO THE ALREADY TOUCHING MUSIC ON THIS ALBUM. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “I WASN’T MEANT TO” MELISSA BRINGS IN HER ELEMENT OF STORY TELLING AND I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG, MELISSA SEEMED AT TIMES THAT SHE WAS SINGING ABOUT MY OWN LIFE WHERE I WENT THROUGH SIMULAR EXPERINCES HOWEVER, MELISSA AND HER STORY TELLING IS IN TRUE FORM ON THIS SONG AND IT’S A SONG I CAN RELATE TO AND LOVE IT, A LOT. “HEART OF GOLD” WHAT A SONG THIS SONG REALLY SHOWCASES MELISSA AND WHERE HER VOCALS ARE INCREDIBLE YET, VULNERABLE AND REAL. ONE MUST HEAR THIS SONG, IT HAS A ALMOST BLUESY FEEL TO IT WITH AN UNDERTONE OF COUNTRY, BUT I TRULY FEEL THAT THIS SONG SUMS UP WHAT KIND OF MUSICIAN MELISSA ROBERTSON IS,  A TRUE SONGWRITER, AND A TENDER ONE AT THAT. THIS SONG HAS TOTAL TENDERNESS AND ARRIVES WITHIN MY OPEN HEART AND RECIEVED WELL. THE LAST SONG ON THIS AMAZING AND HEARTFELT  AND HEART WARMING ALBUM CALLED “IN YOUR LOVING ARMS” MELISSA KEPT THAT FEELING OF TRUE EMOTIONAL PLEA TO JOIN HER AND HER MUSIC HAS THAT ABILITY TO BRING YOU IN AND KEEP YOU WITHIN IN HER LOVING ARMS.
