D Edward - Love Is

Hello everybody! I'm back again to bring you another MY Indie Music Blog feature that I hope you will be as excited about as I am.

My regular readers will definitely pick up on the fact that I tend to migrate towards one type of music more than others, rock. It's in my blood and it's a part of my soul. BUT, that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy other genres of music as well. There's a little bit of everything here for your listening pleasure from the aforementioned rock to country to rap/hip-hop and even a little bit of soul. Tonight however, we're going to up the ante somewhat in the soul department.

I've been given another opportunity to preview an upcoming release and just couldn't pass up the chance to share the music with you here. It's that good. So without further ado, I give to you the soulful, jazzy renderings of D. Edward and his upcoming album Love Is.

Oakland, California, USA native D. Edward is a music industry veteran with quite an impressive resume already under his belt. An accomplished percussionist, he currently tours with legendary R&B/funk group Con Funk Shun, as well as working with 2013 Grammy award winner Laura Sullivan on her current project. I can go on name dropping on his behalf but I think it's best if I give you a little sampling of what he has in store for us with his upcoming album...

The album itself is nothing short of amazing. There is so much sound packed into the 11 tracks on Love Is that I almost couldn't decide on what to sample for this piece! The biggest draw for me is the return to old school r&b. I find it increasingly difficult to find good music on mainstream radio these days. This album is one that could turn the industry upside down and give fans of real music something to be excited about again.

I highly recommend that you head over to iTunes right now and pre-order your copy of Love Is ahead of its October 21st release date. I guarantee you that if you're a lover of real music, you will not be disappointed. Make sure you also check out the official D. Edward website, and don't forget to follow him on Twitter and like him on Facebook. And as always, check back here with me at MY Indie Music Blog for all things D. Edward as they happen!

Project Dirty™ - Wake Up the Night

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about tonight's post. This post is what I live for. This post has come about because of a mutual respect between artist and blogger. And you, my fellow lovers of all things indie, are the beneficiaries.

Tonight, it is with immense pleasure that I bring back to MY Indie Music Blog, Project Dirty™ and their soon to be released new single Wake Up the Night!

Regular readers of MY Indie Music Blog, as well as those who follow me on Twitter (@cgnipp), know which side of the fence I stand on in regards to today's mainstream radio. Simply put, I just don't get it. Maybe I really am getting old and am starting to wonder if I put my parents through the same thing when I started blasting 80's hair metal and r&b and hip-hop all those years ago. Or maybe it's just because what's on the radio these days really isn't that good. It's all fine and dandy to have the hottest producers and songwriters doing their best behind the scenes to make the current crop of "pop" radio darlings sound better than they are to pump up record sales and increase downloads and YouTube views, but what do we really get in return? A longing for something a lot better, that's what. And trust me when I say this, Project Dirty™ is that something better... and a whole lot more!

What you've just experienced is mainstream radio's saviors. Already making huge waves on Sirius XM radio channel 2 (20 on 20) as well as FM radio stations all across America and parts of Germany and South America with hits like Skywalker and Raise the Bar off of their latest album Blue Fire, Rhett Fisher (vocals) and Micah Faulkner (guitar) are ushering in a new era of artists who actually have to talent to make it on their own in the music industry. With Wake Up the Night, the guys have carried forward an already winning formula of pop rock infused, stadium anthem ready party rock that, according to Micah, is the "best we've done yet I feel." I couldn't agree more. I've had the pleasure of hearing the full track and really can't wait for them to unleash this tune on all of you in the very near future!

In the meantime, get yourselves ready for some new Project Dirty™ tuneage by checking out their current album Blue Fire as well as their debut EPs Act 1 & Act 2. And don't forget to check out their official website, follow them on Twitter, like them on Facebook and circle your calendars for Tuesday, October 7, 2014 for the official worldwide release of Wake Up the Night!
