#albumoftheday / #amlistening = DOE PAORO: SOFT POWER

Doe Paoro’s Soft Power album is her generation’s answer to Carole King’s Tapestry. Heartfelt, earnest singer-songwriter tunes with thought-provoking and insightful lyrics made with real instruments, including lots of smooth piano. All decorated with a wide variety of influences. For example, “Over” has a distinct Motown vibe while other tracks, like “Guilty” and...

Bulgarian singer-songwriter Ruth Koleva's "I Don't Know Why" hails from her just-announced sophomore album, Confidence. Truth, which is scheduled for release on 3/30.  It's an excellent example of what can happen when jazz and pop are blended into something that defies the unwritten rules of both genres. ...

An Exclusive Interview with Brandyn Burnette

Last month I was introduced to Brandyn Burnette’s music via his pensive single “Karma,” which already has 20k plays on Soundcloud alone. He categorizes his music as neo-soul, but to my ears “Karma” was sheer electro-pop bliss. In any case, I had to hear more after that taste and was lucky enough to...
