Single reviews: JESSICA LYNN, IVY GOLD, FUTURE RADIO, ZEA SY

JESSICA LYNN

JESSICA LYNN Love Me That Way

Another new song from a rising star in the country scene Jessica Lynn.

As Lynn hereself says – “Love Me That Way is one of my favorite songs from my new television concert special on Amazon Prime.  I connect so much with it because it is a very good representation of who I am as an artist: a little country, rock, pop, blues, and soul.”

She nails her sound perfectly, enough pop and country to get that all important airplay/playlists, but also a little bit of rock in the guitar and a smattering of soul in her vocal delivery.

With UK dates lined up for next May, all being well Jessica Lynn is primed to see her musical star rise even further.

IVY GOLD

IVY GOLD Six Dusty Winds Ivy Gold Records

Whilst Ivy Gold’s singer Manou may not be a name you know, the rest of the band have some serious musical pedigree featuring  drummer Tal Bergman (Joe Bonamassa, Billy Idol), guitarist Sebastian Eder (Avalon), bassist Kevin Moore (Jennifer Rush) and on keyboards Anders Olinder (Glenn Hughes, Peter Gabriel).

Manou’s vocals are deep and bluesy, perfect for this song which also features a tasty, slow blues guitar solo midway through.

With their debut album due next year, keep an eye and ear out for Ivy Gold, impressive.

FUTURE RADIO Run Baby, Run

Future Radio’s debut album, ‘Freedom’, scheduled for release on 13 November and it is a concept album that deals with the notion of emancipation from the unexceptional and encourages the passionate pursuit of purpose. Johnny Future is the driving force behind the band’s vision and ‘Run Baby, Run’ is certainly a catchy tune, with a heavy use of the chorus it comes across like early Foo Fighters. Neat guitar solo midway through.

One things for sure you’ll be humming this song after just one play, always a good sign for any single release.

ZEA SY ANTI-Gravity

“The song was inspired by David Bowie’s ‘Moonage Daydream’; an idea that you have to change who you are to be accepted by others,” Zea Sy explains. “‘ANTI-Gravity’ is a mirror about direction and the lack thereof.”

Love this one! Zea Sy’s vocals are soothing, yet have enough ‘clout’ to entice in the listener, and loving the spacey guitar solo, which really adds an extra dimension to the song. A glorious mix of rock, pop and a funky beat.

Grab a listen now and looking forward to hearing more from the talented Zea Sy.
