BACK FOR ME-[Reece]

By Sam Morrison // 7 Aug 2020

If you haven’t heard of Reece yet, it’s about time you shift your attention to an artist who is rising quickly. For all of you A&R’s and tastemakers looking for something that’s moving, this is the article that you’ll want to pay attention to. This is my first time covering Reece, but it most certainly will not be the last by any means. Vulnerability and transparency are two characteristics that shine the brightest when it comes to music. With all of the talent in the world, that can mean nothing if there is not an avenue for listeners and fans to connect with the human emotions that drive a song. Reece not only has the talent, but he also has the ability to spill his heart out on to a song in a way that encourages others who may have experienced similar situations. His new song that just dropped today is called “BACK FOR ME” and its a must listen. Reece explained that, “BACK FOR ME” is a venting session in the form of a song. I was so upset the day I wrote it with Jonah Shai. I just had my heart broken literally 3 days prior, and I wanted …

Easy-[Tyler Sellers]

By Sam Morrison // 7 Aug 2020

I got the chance to write about Tyler Sellers a couple of months ago after discovering his discography on Spotify. Ever since uncovering this undeniable gem, I’ve had his most recent song, “WTSB” playing non-stop. Although I’ve been enjoying bumping and vibing to his catalog, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wasn’t itching for some new Tyler Sellers music. The wait is finally over though, as the 19-year-old decided to release a brand new song today called, “Easy”. The title defines the track pretty well as it’s an extremely easy song to listen to due to the sheer magic that Tyler was able to pump this one up with. When you hear a talent like Tyler, it’s very easy to speculate where he got his gift from. Some would say that he’s a natural; for good reason too. The Conway Arkansas native is no stranger to music. He grew up with his dad being a worship leader while his grandmother was a Jazz Pianist as well. From a young age, he knew that music enticed him due to it being all around, but it wasn’t until the age of 13 that he made it his own. What started …

By Sam Morrison // 7 Aug 2020

Gaddo is an artist who needs no introduction. After making it onto our pages for his most recent track, “Too Many Rappers”, he’s making a second appearance after releasing a brand new song today called, “Nu Hill”. The New Mexico up and comer is trying to make a name for himself in this music industry and this latest offering is proof that he’s doing just that at a very rapid pace. The talent he has is very evident while his vision is targets and focused at the same time. When you have the skill as well as the drive, it’s a perfect combination that will lead to inevitable success. I got the chance to grab some insight from Gaddo himself about the new song and he explained: “I’m an R&B head at my core so the song was really inspired by late 90s/ early 2000s Type vibes. The premise of the song is me going back and forth w this girl about our situation and then emphasizing how much it’s starting to mess with my head in the chorus, while also paying homage to one of my favorite Dru Hill tracks “In My Bed”. That’s also where the title came …

By Sam Morrison // 5 Aug 2020

John MacLane is an artist who has sparked my interest ever since stumbling upon his music earlier this week. Anytime I come across something exponentially unique, it’s imperative to write about it here on our pages. From the moment you take a dive into John’s music, you’ll know that there is something special within the artistry. Just a couple of days back, he dropped a song called, “I Don’t Want to Change You” that has been receiving some pretty awesome attention since its release. I heard the song while mindlessly scrolling through my Discover Weekly Spotify playlist and haven’t been able to stop listening since. John is an Atlanta native who is just beginning what looks to be a promising career in music. After many years of experience in production and multi-instrumental utilization, he’s now beginning to take the next steps into carving out his own niche in the music world. Drawing inspiration from the likes of The 1975 and Jeremy Zucker, John mixes his experimental take on music with his own personal flavor. There are  so many amazing elements present in his music and after you listen to this new offering, you’ll have to agree. “I Don’t Want to Change …

By Sam Morrison // 5 Aug 2020

It’s safe to say that Brandon has found a permanent home here on the pages of Lyrical Lemonade. His music has made a lasting impression on our writers and it’s always a pleasure to showcase his artistry any chance we get. It’s rare to find an artist who drops masterpiece after masterpiece and thats why Brandon is such a highly coveted part of the music industry today. his consistency is undeniable as it stems from his natural talent and heightened attention to detail. He cares about the music he releases to the world and that is why he makes sure the quality only reaches that of perfection. The last time we saw the Riverside native on our platform was for his latest single called, “Elastic”. Fellow LL writer, Chuck Ramos and I had the chance to cover the breathtaking piece as it received amazing reviews and responses. If you haven’t heard the song yet, I advise you to listen as soon as you can. I’ve attached the Spotify link right here! On top of the single though, 6 days ago, Brandon dropped an equally impressive video for the beautiful offering. Directed by Justin Segura, the four-minute and twenty-three second visual perfectly …

Armageddon-[Emma Rena]

By Sam Morrison // 4 Aug 2020

A lot of of the articles that I write come from my own personal search and discovery. I love digging into the crevices of various streaming platforms and finding new music that I can share with you all. It’s always a special feeling though, when friends, colleagues and fellow music lovers take the time to send me music that they think I’d like. That’s a gift in itself and something I will always be grateful for. Just a week or so ago, an artist was brought onto my radar from a friend and I haven’t been able to stop listening to her music ever since. If you vent heard of Emma Rena, then there’s a good chance that you’re about to fall in love, just like I did when her music was shown to me for the first time. Everyone knows what it’s like to take a double take when seeing someone attractive or eye-catching in person. The musical equivalent to this familiar experience is rewinding and replaying those special songs. For the last couple of days, I’ve been doing abunch of double takes on Emma Rena’s latest song called “Armageddon”. The two minute and twenty-six second offering has been …

No Drama-[Boski]

By Sam Morrison // 4 Aug 2020

Lyrical Lemonade has been home to many artists who hail from the Dreams Never Die campaign. Just a couple of months back, I had the pleasure of featuring COTIS and today I have the chance to shed some light on an another amazing talent who is being developed by this extraordinary group. Interesting and intriguing are just a couple of words I would use to describe an up and coming artist who goes by the name of Boski.  Bo Kitzman is a Jackson, Tennessee native who is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut for his very first song called, “No Drama”. Here at LL, we pride ourselves on being early on a lot of artists and to be able to cover Boski’s first release is just as about as early as they come. The self proclaimed “nerd” is making a name for himself as he occupies genre lanes that consist of indie, alternative, hip-hop and should without compromising his own personal flavor. Today, the Japanese influenced, mandolin playing riser is showing us the uniqueness of his art and why everyone should begin taking notice. The two-minute and twenty-six second offering starts off in the smoothest way possible. As soon as you …

Tell Me-[Era]feat.[lilspirit]

By Sam Morrison // 31 Jul 2020

Era is an artist who has made it onto our pages before and it’s a blessing to bring him back onto Lyrical Lemonade for an offering that music lovers everywhere just can’t refuse whatsoever. I’m honestly pretty upset that I haven’t heard of Era’s music before this moment, but from now on, there’s no way that I’m not going to be championing his stuff any chance that I get. Being from Arizona, it’s always a great feeling getting to see amazing artists emerge from that area and the fact that Era just so happens to be one of them is so dope. If you were a fan of his other music, this new one I’m writing about today is going to raise your obsession even higher. Era’s distinct voice just isn’t something you hear often and whenever you get a taste of something unique, it’s like a drug; You just want it more and more. “Tell Me” is an offering that just doesn’t miss. I’ve spent the whole entire morning listening to it and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Sonically it’s just so pleasing from every single angle. What’s even better is that Era enlisted help from well-known …
