Black History Month – [DAVESTATEOFMIND]

By Sam Morrison // 8 Apr 2020

The artist who goes by the name of DAVESTATEOFMIND is pretty high on my list right now. After checking out his song, “Black History Month” it was only right that I threw it on our pages. Here at Lyrical Lemonade, we celebrate good music and that’s exactly what DAVE makes. After diving through his entire discography, it’s really evident that the Houston, Texas native is meant to do this music stuff. The song, “Black History Month” was dropped back in February, but deserves to resurface for its timeless content. DAVESTATEOFMIND is a talent and it’s on full display in this offering. His lyrical mastery and innate flow can only be chalked up to God-given talent. The way in which DAVE is able to captivate you with just the words is a skill that very few have. Paired with the hard hitting yet groovy production, the message behind this track radiates through every single verse. Being black is something that should be celebrated in every single way, which is at the focus of this piece. DAVE takes his passion for culture and translates that into a complete masterpiece that doesn’t miss. This track by DAVESTATEOFMIND is off the chain and I …

3 Years – [Dempsey Hope]&[Jake Crocker]

By Sam Morrison // 8 Apr 2020

There’s really not an artist out there that I’m more intrigued by than Dempsey Hope. The star in the making came across my radar one night after a long session of SoundCloud surfing for new tunes. It must’ve been my lucky night because I was put on to one of Dempsey’s latest jams entitled, “3 Years”. If you’ve heard this song before, then you already know how good it is, but if you haven’t, consider today to be your lucky day. The 19 year old Seattle Native is making his debut onto our pages for the release of the “3 Years” Lyric Video. Dempsey and his team know how important it is to match music with visuals and that evidently shines during this whole entire piece. “3 Years” focuses on the complicated emotions of longing to reconnect with a lover who’s been left in the past; a situation that most have been in. The vulnerability and truth that is present throughout the lyrics makes this the track an easy one to connect with. The song itself exudes an unforgettably upbeat vibe that won’t allow you to stay still. Dempsey’s vocals are on full display as he fills every verse with …

Dayjob – [Daniel Price]

By Sam Morrison // 8 Apr 2020

If you’re looking for (in my opinion) the next best thing in music, look no further than this article. Making it onto the pages of Lyrical Lemonade for the first time ever is a young up and comer who I believe has an extremely bright future ahead of him. Daniel Price is a 20-year-old artist from Boston, Massachusetts who only has one song on his discography, but after listening to it, you’ll realize that its truly all he needs. The track, “Dayjob” is one of the most infectious pieces I’ve heard recently. When I first got this one sent to me by a friend, I played it on repeat in my car for about an hour straight. What’s best about this offering is that it puts all of Daniel’s talents at the forefront. The rising star is a polished vocalist, creative songwriter and dynamic producer. Everything you hear on this track is done by Daniel himself and it’s so cool to see someone of his age displaying a mastery of such various and complex skills. From start to finish, the enticing ambiance takes over. As a whole, this song has a tone that is contagious to say the least. Daniel’s production …

I Don’t Live Anywhere. – [Ben Zaidi]

By Sam Morrison // 7 Apr 2020

Ben Zaidi has a permanent pass onto our pages for the simple fact that he never misses. Each song he puts out is a carefully crafted story that he meticulously packages up in a way that results in nothing other than a gift for his listeners. The brand new track that he just recently dropped might be my favorite one by him yet. The offering is entitled, “I Don’t Live Anywhere.” and it’ll take you down a deep retrospective path of finding the things that mean most to you. From start to finish, this track hooks you. I’m not sure if it’s the simple guitar strums or Ben’s gentle yet powerful vocals, but regardless, everything thats going on in this song just works and the final product is nothing shy of spectacular. Ben has been putting out some seriously captivating tunes as of late which has been such a treat for us music lovers. I really can’t stress how good this 3 minute offering is. Ben continues to raise the bar for each release and continue to meet it each time. He and his team are killing it and it’s so exciting to see the continual evolution that’s taking place …

Gyal – [Chris Catlin] x [OR1ON]

By Sam Morrison // 6 Apr 2020

We all knew that LA based artist, Chris Catlin was bound to make it back into our pages soon enough and that day is here. The island infused hit maker is making his much deserved Lyrical Lemonade return with the release of a brand new track entitled, “Gyal”. The track is the perfect joint for those who want to escape reality and think about better times. The upbeat and care free nature of this one will definitely have you singing along throughout the entire 2 minutes. Chris Catlin hasn’t missed yet and this is just another offering that proves that. His life perspective truly bleeds into his music which allows his listeners to connect with it in a way that is extremely inspiring. What’s cool about this new track is that Chris enlisted help from well know producer OR1ON to create the ballad. All around, this is a hit and I’m so hype to share it with y’all! I’ve attached to Spotify link down below! Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

OMM – [Playyard] ft. [Brooke Sierra]

By Sam Morrison // 5 Apr 2020

The up and coming duo, “Playyard” has been on my radar for some time now. The La native fire power is made up of Santa Barbara based college roommates Michael Sack and Henry Morris. Ever since hearing their absolutely stellar song, “Strings”, I’ve been hooked and excited to hear anything they might come out with next. Today, the duo is making their much deserved Lyrical Lemonade debut for the release of their brand new song entitled, “OMM”. The laid back yet upbeat track is one that will be stuck in your head all weekend long. The production that is on display makes perfect sense when you take into account he well it compliments the vocal talents that are present around every turn.  Playyard has a lot of talent themselves but decided to add some more flare to “OMM” by enlisting help from well known singer/songwriter Brooke Sierra. This is a really tasteful inclusion as it rounds out the song and compliments the entire concept very well. There’s not much more I can say without giving the whole song away, so I’ll let y’all listen and be the judge of this one! I’ve attached the Spotify link down below, so give …

Dirty Money Bags – [DEEGAN]

By Sam Morrison // 3 Apr 2020

DEEGAN Reeves is a 23 year old singer/songwriter from Norwalk, CT who has been making some serious waves lately. The La based artist has been dropping music 2018 and has a pretty impressive discography under his name. Just a couple of weeks back, DEEGAN dropped a track called “Hello” that has received a lot of great buzz after landing a much deserved editorial spot on Spotify. Today, the rising artist is back with a brand new offering entitled “Dirty Money Bags” and its definitely worth a listen. DEEGAN practically does everything on his own when it comes to making music, but for this one he paired up with Rhode Island producer, Tylur Ocean to create a really impressive piece for us today. It’s really hard to predict who is going to be the next big thing, but I believe DEEGAN is a part of a great batch of artists who are going to be household names in many places. I’ve attached the Spotify link down below for “Dirty Money Bags”. Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

RRWYL – [Gretchen]

By Sam Morrison // 3 Apr 2020

As a writer, there’s truly no greater joy than finding good music and having the opportunity to pass it along to others. What’s even better though is that I also have the distinct privilege of finding great people and getting to tell others about them. I spend a lot of my days connecting with different artists and learning about them in a way that goes deeper than their Spotify Discography. You take away music and all we’re left with are the relationships we’ve made, which is why its so important that I not only feature good musicians on here but also good souls. A good soul who I’ve had the opportunity to cross paths with is an artist named Gretchen. Over the past couple of months, Lyrical Lemonade has been home to some pretty impressive artists from Nashville, Tennessee (Ash Leone, Bren Joy, Landon Sears, etc.) and Gretchen just so happens to fall into this batch of overly talented individuals. The singer/songwriter, originally from Richmond, Virginia has been active on streaming platforms since 2017, but I’m a firm believer that she’s about catch her stride and take this thing to a whole new level. Today, Gretchen is making her debut …
