Undertow-[Michael Paradise]

By Sam Morrison // 8 Jul 2020

Michael Paradise is someone who I’m so excited to be writing about today. The Toronto artist has been on my radar for some time now and his latest song is most definitely something you should listen to on this fine Wednesday afternoon. Back in 2019, Michael dropped two songs that have done exceedingly well on streaming platforms; gaining nearly 300,000 streams on Spotify combined. There is something intriguing about his music and I believe this is just the beginning of an upward trajectory for the Canadien hitmaker. His newest song that dropped last night is an offering titled, “Undertow”. The 3 minute and 19 second piece was produced by Lyrical Lemonade favorite, Sylo Nozra. When you pair together Michael’s beautiful style and Sylo’s professional grade production skills, you get a song that works in the best way possible. There is an ambience in this one that exudes amazing energy from start to finish. Michael Paradise’s voice is unmatched as it effortlessly floats over Sylo’s production style. I can’t say anything else without completely spoiling the track for y’all, so it’s about time that y’all just go and listen to it! I’ve attached the Spotify link down below for “Undertow”. Go …

Lady by the Sea-[Stephen Sanchez]

By Sam Morrison // 7 Jul 2020

In life, it’s extremely evident that we value things that last. There is nothing enjoyable about short lived experiences or temporary occurrences. I believe the same goes for music as well. One hit wonders are great in the moment, but there is nothing more special than talent that stands the test of time; The talent that you know will be around for a long time. Today on the pages of Lyrical Lemonade, nothing brings me more joy than being able to write about an artist who will undoubtedly be talked about for a very long time. If you are unfamiliar with Stephen Sanchez, let today be the last time you’re able to say that. The 17-year-old rising senior from El Dorado, California has been gaining immense notoriety for his popular videos on Tik-Tok. Just a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon his page and it was at that moment when I knew this young artist was much more than a social media personality, but rather, a true star in the making. After posting an original song on tik-tok that received over 1 million views alone, Stephen decided to kick off his musical journey by officially releasing the highly coveted …

Call Me Back 80 Times-[A5H]

By Sam Morrison // 6 Jul 2020

An artist who goes by the name of A5H was by far the most pleasant surprise of my month thus far. As I was scrolling through through the deep folders of Spotify I came across a song that was a part of his most recent project that dropped back in April of this year. The 5 song EP titled, “December Ape” boasts some pretty impressive pieces, but none of them stood out to me in the way that “Call Me Back 80 Times” did. Ever since hearing it, the titular track of the EP has been on repeat non stop. It’s my go to song right now and I’m a firm believer that this will be the case for a lot of our listeners after reading this article. 22-year-old Ash Mathieu hails from Växjö, Sweden where he’s been producing for the last 6 years and singing for the last two years. When listening to his music, it’s extremely hard for me to box him in to a specific genre. I would cast a wide net and describe his style as being an effortless electronic fusion of pop, hip hop, and rock. With so many elements present in his art, it’s …

Hallucinogen (Trippin’)-[Ncognita]

By Sam Morrison // 6 Jul 2020

The individual who is making it onto our pages right now might be one of the most dynamic artists that I’ve ever gotten the chance to write about. When you experience true and raw talent, it is impossible to shake it. Think back to the first time you heard a legend. There was not a doubt in your mind that you were witnessing something special; something that might only come around once in a lifetime. When you stumble upon those types of artists early, it’s of the utmost importance to take immediate notice. Today, it is my honor to highlight a future star in the making. Someone who is not only going to leave a mark in her genre, but in music altogether. Ncognita is the rapper we’ve all been waiting for. In a brief conversation last week, one of my colleagues asked me if I’m a fan of Hip-Hop and I proceeded to tell him that “I’m a fan of good Hip-Hop.” If you’re wondering what constitutes as good hip-hop, look no further than this article. I came across the stellar talent of Ncognita when her first song to hit streaming services came out. The offering, titled, “Clap Clap” …

Past Life-[XINCLAIR]

By Sam Morrison // 4 Jul 2020

XINCLAIR is an artist that I’m really grateful to have been introduced to. Just a week ago, the well-know hitmaker dropped a song called “Past Life” that is worth your ear on this Fourth of July weekend. The three minute and four second song doesn’t let up from the moment you turn it on. Produced by Haze and Ryan Bevolo, “Past Life” is going to be on repeat for a really long time. I just really don’t see myself getting sick of it. XINCLAIR’s vocal talents and downright style is felt through every bar and verse. This is a golden track and I know ya’ll will think so too. I was able to grab a quote from the up and comer about the song and he explained that, “The song came together when I was stuck in writer’s block. I was pretty new (and still am) to making more melodic singing tracks. I wanted to start experimenting with the sound as I listen to the style a lot. The producer of the song Haze sent me a pack of beats and I started freestyling over them until one of them stuck. I got the chorus for the song almost instantly …

Fight It-[Ouse]&[Elijah Midjord]

By Sam Morrison // 3 Jul 2020

A 19-year-old artist from Iceland named Ouse is making it onto our pages for the release of his latest song called, “Fight It”. Before this track, I wasn’t familiar with a lot of his music, but I’m extremely grateful that I’m not able to say that anymore. With over one-million monthly listeners, it’s safe to say that Ouse is building himself an extensive fan base that is only going to grow as more time passes on. “Fight It” is a high energy summer track that wastes no time in getting started. I’ve heard a lot of new music over the past few weeks, and this one most definitely stands out in all of the best ways. Ouse is a one man rock band in this track. There is nothing but youthful energy bleeding all throughout “Fight It”. To raise the bar even higher, Ouse decided to tap in fellow collaborator, Elijah Midjord to add some extra flare to an already well rounded offering. There are a lot of really amazing elements they take shape in this brand new piece and I’m so excited for y’all to listen to it. “Fight It” is out on all streaming platforms. I’ve attached the …

Premiere: About April (Music Video)-[Alex Banin]

By Sam Morrison // 3 Jul 2020

Stellar music is hard to come by, so whenever I receive songs that completely blow me away, I’m endlessly grateful to say the least. Today, it’s only right that I share with the readers what was shared with me and why I think it’s so spectacular. If you’re looking for your latest indulgence, look no further.  An artist named Alex Banin is making an appearance on Lyrical Lemonade today for the release of her brand new song titled, “About April”. The 22-year-old London born artist, grew up in New York, but now is based in Chicago, where she started making music. The new piece that dropped last week has been preforming well on streaming platforms and its only a matter of time before it catches fire and is heard by everyone. The subtle production was truly what caught my ear at first listen. It is strong but doesn’t overpower Alex’s beautiful voice which you truly won’t want to miss out on. The best artists are those who can tell stories just as well as they can sing, and that perfectly encapsulates Alex in totality. In this peaceful and reflective piece, the up and comer takes us on an introspective journey …

Cajun-[Baby Bari] & [Gidi]

By Sam Morrison // 3 Jul 2020

Baby Bari is an artist who keeps coming up in conversation. Whether it’s in passing exchanges or intentional talks with other artists, on many occasions, I’ve been told that Baby Bari is someone to look out for. After hearing all of the referrals, it was only right to check out some of his music and peep what makes this up and coming hitmaker so intriguing. Today, Baby Bari is making it onto our pages for a song that is definitely worth all of the hype that I’ve been hearing. The track, “Cajun” is a 2 minute and 22 second offering that introduces us to the 22-year-old Naples, Florida native in the best way possible. As soon as I turned this one on, it was instant vibes. Everyone who is familiar with my writing knows that I’m a sucker for all things guitar and in the first couple seconds of this one, there is a groovy guitar that completely sets the tone for the whole entire piece. I could get into every single element that is present, but all y’all need to know is that the sound from a stylistic standpoint is utterly perfect. Bari knows exactly who he is as …
