Ivory Tower Project Song Review 

My Name

We have missed great songwriting and instrumentation for soundtracks in movies or games in the Millennium – this was not the case years ago.  Fortunately, a Rock duo hailing from New York USA had done just so in 2020 with the release of their debut album/CD Red Hot – they are Ivory Tower Project (ITP).  Their song “My Name” from off of Red Hot has wowed many heads with its Rock infused SynthPop music, so much so, that it has secured a sync-license deal with DreamWorks Animation and NBC Universal…

Cosmic Heart

There are some singers who begin to sing, and their audience sees nothing but black and white boredom as if they have just been transported to a clip out of Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth – GRAY!  But then there are singers who make their audience see every color of the rainbow with-just-one-note!  That is what Becky Bowe does for her audience …

Song Review - EMZAE (Pop) 

If there was a music dictionary, and you could look up the word UNAPOLOGETIC, this song would be the link next to the definition. 

Fresh off the cuff and mind of rising Pop artist, producer, Emzae, we have this fresh cut entitled “THRIVE.”  In just two minutes, this anthemic song with a bounce will tattoo itself to your core.  Emzae sings: It makes no sense to me / hating on yourself / just because you're different to somebody else / you have all you need, so don't cry, take the lead / cause this is what it
