Beautifully fulfilling and intimately vibrant: this is Todd Underwood with his new album “Reflectings Acustico”

Like a wonderful rainbow, with “Reflectings Acustico” Todd Underwood traces a creative parabola with which he embraces and emphasizes the steps he has taken to build his musical career in these past years

With extreme talent and skills at his disposal, Todd Underwood is a multi-instrumentalist that has vast expertise in guitar, bass and vocals. Recording engineer, mix and master engineer, as well as active producer, Todd has released fifteen albums to date, many with bands he has collaborated with.

Member of countless bands, he played with the bass player from Sly and Family Stone and shared the stage with Mark Farner of the Grand Funk Railroad. In 1988 he answered an ad in the San Diego Reader and thus won a spot for music for a BMX video. From there, Todd wrote theme songs for commercials and TV series, many of which can still be heard today.

In 2017 he began to publish music under his name. His first release, “Unfortunate Day”, is the culmination of many years of songs recorded from 2001 onwards, which had not been used in other projects, and which resided on a hard drive, with the expectation of a future release.

With his follow-up “When I Took My Watch Off“, Underwood addressed issues and problems of life, such as aging and the emotional dynamics of children who become grown-up adults. The title track in particular is a tribute to Todd’s father, a song meant to highlight his very personal emotional journey. “Color and Contrast“, his third release, dealt with empathy, regret, hope and, more generally, spiritual challenge. Last but not least comes “Reflectings Acustico“. For this album, Underwood has chosen to do something different from his usual material, where rock, punk and metal collide and mingle.

It is in fact a completely organic acoustic release, in which, as Todd himself explains, “everything is real and hand played, without any copy and paste in the recording process. This made me really focus on the songwriting, playing, singing, harmonizing, and the lyrics.”

“The album is nautically themed and the lyrics concentrate on relationships,” continues Todd, “and I let the lyrics take me where they wanted to go, in some cases a song took on a completely different meaning.”

With its 11 tracks, “Reflectings Acustico” is a deeply vibrant and at the same time gently delicate listening experience, which offers us harmonic and melodic developments that are refined in their construction and purposeful deconstruction.

The heterogeneous richness offered by percussion instruments is no less important, and Todd confirms he dedicated a long time searching for these instruments, carefully selecting each of them from various parts of the country for use in this album.

With the sum of all these peculiar factors, in “Reflectings Acustico” Underwood sets up a kaleidoscopic opus, in which the nuances of all his creativity blend harmoniously, giving us a splendidly exquisite album. A perfect setting in which Todd shows and highlights his artistic depth in its entirety.

Rob Alexander // “Being Myself”

After the simple and elegant listening experience he offered us with his debut album “Long Road Coming Home”, Rob Alexander returns to the indie pop music scene with his new album “Being Myself”

With his second long form work anesthesiologist Rob Alexander shows once more all his warm and inviting style, marked by his captivating voice. Speaking of his style, Rob describes it as “a contemporary classic for adults”, a stylistic choice that carefully and intentionally points back to the most iconic and representative melodic tracks from the ’80s.

Released last November, “Being Myself” is a collection made up only of original songs: ballads and more Rock numbers, ranging from pop to funk, to R&B.

Among the fifteen tracks of “Being Myself“, the first one we’d like to mention is the first single extracted from it: “Never Gonna Let You Go“. The song is currently receiving airtime on the radio and being praised by critics; it is an exquisitely composed, arranged and executed track that’s capable of evoking a deep and heartfelt feeling of nostalgia. This is not a coincidence, as Rob wrote this piece after the loss of a dear friend, earlier this year.

As the title suggests, “Friend of Mine (Elton’s Epic)” is linked to the iconic star. In this song that is going to be released as a single next January, we find once again the same remarkable attention to production we felt in “Never Gonna Let You Go“, this time praiseworthy because of the delicacy and care used to create an organic and passionate song.

In the ballad “Our Love Will Last Forever” Rob impeccably takes the role of narrator of a pure, genuine and sincere love story. Beautifully sunny, thanks to his vocal performance Rob Alexander spreads the wings of that unique feeling that is love.

Thanks to the creative twists showcased in this album, Rob Alexander is also capable of giving us numbers with an engaging beat, such as the enthralling “Secrets & Lies” or the rhythmic “We’re Living in a Dream“. It’s simply impossible not to follow their pace.

With “Being MyselfRob Alexander follows his artistic path, brilliantly opened with his debut album “Long Road Coming Home“. Once again, he does not limit himself to setting up a mere revival of old reminiscences. Rather, he defines his vibrant musical vision even more characteristically with each album.

Although based on the familiar sounds of the most typical music of the ’80s, the sound of “Being Myself” is engaging and characteristic, and allows Rob to make his musical delivery even more distinctive. This is something he had already started doing with his debut album, and this release makes it all even more profound, detailed, relevant and pervasive.

Recorded in Los Angeles, “Being Myself” is produced by Gabe Lopez, a producer who had already collaborated with Rob Alexander on his debut album.

The coherence, the organicity and the clarity in the vision of what musical delivery this album wants to offer, are so well realized it’s disarming.

These are evidences we find in the care put forward not only in Rob’s vocal performance, but also in the construction of the arrangements and in the mastery put into managing the layers of sounds, instruments and backing vocals.

Although very different from each other, “I-O-U” and “Another Love Affair” are two obvious examples of how the sum of all these elements can really elevate the way a song plays to excellence.

With about an hour of music, “Being Myself” is a beautifully made album, using which Rob Alexander satisfies us while exploring feelings and sensations in an expressive and emotional way, as seen through the colors of the ’80s and the richness of the most contemporary vibrations .

Fighting through setbacks to rise above life and industry abuses

She is J. Irja The Sexy Psycho, delivering her “real” rap, with lyrics based on her true life experiences

One encounter with J. Irja The Sexy Psycho and you’ll never forget her 5’0” dynamite frame that dons a striking head tattoo and boasts a powerhouse of rapid-fire, catchy lyrics and captivating stage presence.

Arguably one of the most lyrically complex and creative unsigned female rappers in the current hip-hop industry, her fans liken her to a “white girl Tech N9ne” and “female Eminem.”

Platinum Producer DJ Pain 1 co-signs her performance by stating “J. Irja shuts down the stage – every time.”

Influenced by artists as Eminem and Tech N9ne, J. Irja decided to use struggle and pain as motivation and show to others they can overcome anything in life.

Came from homelessness and severe poverty, even eating out of a garbage, J. Ira overcame alcoholism and life pains.

“Survivor” is the latest single from J. Irja

Her performance and music are both captivating, but perhaps the most intriguing thing about J. Irja is her music is all inspired but her real life. In her own words “EVERYTHING I rap is real, I’ve either been through it or seen it. I don’t do fake, I don’t do ‘Wishlist Rapping’” 

The pain in her music comes from a lifetime of struggling, of turning nothing into something. She grew up in Canada in a poverty-stricken 7 person home and turned to small side hustles to help put food on the table. A major head injury in 5th grade caused major set-backs both mentally and socially for her, and she became an outcast.

She shaved her head and joined the wrestling team, and after her parents disapproval, she went on to cheerleading. It was obvious that she was torn within between her masculine and feminine sides and she turned to her one true love for solace: Music. 

She became a published Poet young, and graduated early vowing to never struggle as she did growing up, so she turned to selling drugs and exotic dancing to funnel money into her music career. She fell into tragedy as she obtained another severe head injury and began an intimate and tumultuous relationship with an abusive manager who extorted her and preyed upon her one true goal: to make it in the music business. 

But J. Irja didn’t give up! She pushed forward to start a conglomerate in honor of her daughter called the “Female Empowerment Movement Militia” a non-profit foundation that is comprised of women of all walks of life coming together to uplift and motivate one another to succeed and to demolish the roadblocks of sexual inequality once and for all and she is on her way to being part of making that happen.

J. Irja is focused on becoming the first female rapper signed to Strange Music and has opened for their artists Rittz, Stevie Stone, and MAYDAY. She has also toured in over a dozen states, sharing the stage with major artists including Twista, T-Pain, Do-Or-Die and many more. She is also featured in many renowned online sites including thisis50 and has had numerous interviews on radio stations including 97.7 The Blaze.

In her own words “Stay Tuned, the best is yet to come”.
