Coming Clean EP-[Brandon]

By Sam Morrison // 23 Oct 2020

The day we have all been waiting for is finally here. The highly anticipated collection of songs by Brandon has officially released and to no surprise, the immediate responses and reactions have been overwhelmingly positive to say the least. Since stumbling on Brandon more than over a year ago, I have seen the young artist grow right before my eyes in matters of maturity and wisdom. With every single release and every single drop, Brandon has managed to create a safe space that listeners can escape to in order to feel a sense of honesty, love and belonging. After seeing all of the people who have shown support of this project, it is clear that what Brandon is doing is much bigger than music…He’s bringing people together, which is a beautiful thing to see in all aspects. I’ve spent time with the EP since it’s been out and it is an undeniable fact that Brandon smashed this one out of the park. Each song tells a story. Each song evokes a certain feeling; and each song will touch your heart in a way that you didn’t know was possible. Each song is powerful in it’s own way, but the focus …

I Don’t Mind (Official Music Video)-[Tobias Dray] feat. [Ben chandler]

By Sam Morrison // 23 Oct 2020

Tobias Dray is a very exciting act who is making his way onto Lyrical Lemonade for a stellar offering that dropped a little while ago. If you’ve seen the song, “I Don’t Mind” pop up on any of your spotify playlists, I advise you to take time out of your day to indulge in the stellar piece as it’s been stuck in my head ever since hearing it. The mastermind behind it, Tobias Dray is a well-polished producer who is making a name for himself in a way that will prove to be beneficial for his overall career. His ability to make tasteful beats and full songs is the exact reason why so many artists are itching to hop on one of his tracks. Just recently, the 24-year-old Toronto based producer enlisted help from well-known artist, Ben Chandler to bring his own personal flare to the impressive “I Don’t Mind” track. Like I said, this song has been stuck in my head for a while now and to make it even better, Tobias dropped a brand new video for the titular song. The fun and energetic story is the perfect compliment to an already amazing song which makes this a …

CROWDED-[Raissa]

By Sam Morrison // 23 Oct 2020

To say that Raissa is the next big thing would be a drastic understatement and complete lie, since in actuality, she’s already a force to be reckoned with right now. I first stumbled on her art about a month ago after getting exposed to what is now one of my favorite songs ever, “GO FAST BABY”. I can probably count on one hand the number of times that I’ve heard a song that completely blew me away and this song by Raissa is one of them. From that moment on, I began to immerse myself into her extensively impressive catalog and often times question how Raissa was able to craft up delicate masterpieces like “BULLYING BOYS”, “ANGEL ENERGY”, and “VALENTINE” with such ease. Her artistic maturity and thoughtful perspectives can be attributed to many factors; One of which was her upbringing. Born to a Spanish Mother and Franco-Algerian Father, Raissa has gone from Spain, all the way to London by way of Malaysia, Beijing and Sydney. The colorful exposure to different cultures and different ways of life is an aspect that is represented so well in her music as Raissa possesses a dynamic sound and style that is unique to …

Who is Jacque Cousy?

By Sam Morrison // 22 Oct 2020

Jacque Cousy is a name you haven’t heard of until today, but he is someone you will most likely not be able to forget when it’s all said and done. Throughout my life, I’ve received extensive amounts of advice and wisdom and one assertion that has remained true is that some of the best things sometimes just come out of nowhere. The unexpected and unpredictable usually end up being the most meaningful and impactful. This is the case when it comes to Jacque; A Los Angeles based artist who is bound to make himself known through the art he creates. In regards to music, this is something that has been in the life of the up and comer for a while and will prove to be the very vehicle that helps him achieve his 4 main goals in music: …to lighten up the world, stream incredibly well, tour the globe and order room service in a bathrobe everywhere. A forward thinking and ambitious individual, Jacque Cosusy gives much praise to the classics and tries to pay homage to them while staying true to himself. According to him, 70’s rock, 50’s ballads, 80’s funk and new wave are genres that people confine to the …

All My Friends Are Lonely-[Joel Blackmon]

By Sam Morrison // 22 Oct 2020

Joel Blackmon is an artist who I’ve had my eyes on for a little while now. The Hundred Days Records signee has made a name for himself after dropping impressive track after impressive track at a rate that is nothing shy of spectacular. His discography is filled with a plethora of tunes that will cater to any mood that you may be in, which is what makes him one of my favorite up and comers. Today, the rising star is hitting the page of Lyrical Lemonade for the release of his brand new song, “All My Friends Are Lonely”. From the title, you can already tell that this is going to be an emotional introspective piece and somehow Joel is able to deliver such a powerful message through meaningful melodies and intentional harmonization. The upbeat production makes this statement song uplifting and lighthearted without sacrificing the condition of the lyrical content. Joel has the ability to tell stories with his lyrics which is what makes his artistry that much more dynamic. “All My Friends Are Lonely” is a song that you can listen to at any time, but its important to take your time and experience it without any distraction. This track is …

If You Love Me-[ALLY] feat. [Gretchen]

By Sam Morrison // 21 Oct 2020

ALLY is no stranger to the pages of Lyrical Lemonade whatsoever. Back in June, the Tennessee based talent made it onto our publication for the release of her dual single, “Myself, this time/Lock My Door”. The two tracks were honestly some of the most impressive offerings that I’ve seen from the up and comer and today, she’s back with fire song that will leave no question as to why ALLY is on her way to creating something special for herself.  “If You Love Me” is the latest release under the singer/songwriter’s belt and it really might be my favorite so far. We all knew ALLY had some serious vocal power, but throughout these verses she really holds nothing back and showcases her complete range and control in a way that I haven’t seen before. “If You Love Me” is an R&B track through and through but what makes this one shine even more is the addition of Gretchen, a great friend and well-known collaborator of ALLY. The inclusion of Gretchen was such a smart move as she added her own personal flare and swagger onto this vibey track. These girls really did their thing with this one and ya’ll have …

BULL$HIT-[Evann McIntosh]

By Sam Morrison // 21 Oct 2020

Evann McIntosh has been one of my favorite artists ever since I stumbled on her debut project Mojo back in 2019. The mature and thoughtful lyric content would make you think that Evann is a seasoned legend when it comes to this music stuff, but the simple fact that she is 16-years-old might be the most impressive part of her artistry. To be able to do what she does at such a young age is nothing short of a testament to the God-given talent that she possesses and I firmly believe that we need to celebrate this young up and comer in every way! After dropping her latest hit single, “WIYULD”, fans and tastemakers alike have been itching for new Evann music and today that day has finally come. “BULL$HIT” is going to be your newest obsession whether you like it or not. The new song by Evann wastes no time in grabbing your attention as she opens up the song instantly showcasing her angelic and mesmerizing voice. We all know that she has crazy vocal talents, but it seems like each time she drops something new, she whips out a brand new part of her artistry that we didn’t …

Out of Service-[Tayo]

By Sam Morrison // 21 Oct 2020

Nothing warms my heart more than getting to bring brand new artists onto the pages of Lyrical Lemonade. Most of my writing consists of artists who span from known to having little content on their discography, but there is just something special about getting to highlight up and coming talent that’s just getting started. Today, I get to do just that for an alternative Pop/R&B group called, Tayo. A lot of prominent talent has originated from the Southern California area and the trio of Cheska, Betthia and Annie may very well be the latest. The San Diego natives have all been making music for some time now individually, but just recently, they all decided to team up and create something that wouldn’t be possible without enlisting the help of one another. Despite not being related, the talented filipino singers call themselves a “sister band”, which is nothing more than a testament to their close-knit relationship and chemistry; a chemistry that can be felt all throughout their debut single that just dropped yesterday. If you’re a fan of good and transparent music, Tayo’s new offering “Out of Service” is just for you. From a production standpoint, this song hits different as …
