Award winning pianist Michele McLaughlin's latest offering features three beautiful melodies




Utah based Pianist and Independent Recording Artist Michele McLaughlin has already 15 albums to her name and her sparkling and serene piano compositions are simply amazing.

From a young age Michele taught herself how to play and it was thanks to the support of her mum that music became her life.

Sadly Michele's mum passed away in 2006 but her legacy lives on especially when you consider the numerous awards that Michele has picked up over the years.

Her most recent musical offering is Undercurrent which features three beautiful melodies.

Full Of Love is a real delight to the ears and is an absolute masterpiece.

The Space Between begins with more of a somber feel to it but as the song proceeds parts of the arrangement negate this.

Evolution brings this regal album to a close with the perfect melody, this collection of music is perfect for unwinding to after a long and/or stressful day.

Kristyna Myles dazzles us with out of this world vocals


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsadJ5MKIGw&feature=youtu.be

Kristyna's first break came while she was busking in Manchester and won Radio Five Live's Busk Idol Competition, this lead to a European Tour and support from household names such as Lisa Stansfield, Will Young, Lemar and the legendary Nile Rogers.

A five album deal with Decca Records only resulted in one single release over three years, this motivated Kristyna to take charge over her career and it would seem that this was the right decision as 2013 saw the release of her independent debut single - A Cover of the Style Council Classic - The Paris Match, which Paul well described as absolutely stunning.

2014 saw the release of her debut album Pinch Me Quick, which was produced by Grammy Award Winning Producer Ken Nelson.

Kristyna Myles has just released her second album - Paint A Brighter Day through her own label Take Note Recordings and it has already charted at 16 in the Official Independent Album Breakers Chart.

Mobo Nominee Kristyna is the lyrical genius behind the Pledge Music funded album and along with Mercury Prize Nominated Producer Andy Ross they have created 11 spectacular melodies.

New Page begins the album with powerful vocals and a lively melody.

I'm Getting Rid Of This is a upbeat number with captivating instrumentals, first class lyrics and a wondrous performance on the vocal front.

Heaven Knows has a Gospel/Soul vibe to it and thumbs up to the delightful instrumental arrangement.

Drop Me A Line showcases the beautiful sounds of a bass guitar and also a brass arrangement whilst Kristyna delivers out of this world vocals.

Autumn has a softer feel to it thanks to the choice of instruments, which make this melody a musical work of art.

It's Not About You is a uplifting tune with its cheerful melody and motivational lyrics, a real tonic to ensure good spirits all round.

I Guess I'll Never Know serves up energetic beats thick and fast whilst Kristyna's vocals and lyrics are both on point as always.

A Change Is Gonna Come showcases this talented musician's ability to effortlessly get us stomping our feet with her energetic melodies.

Garment Of Shame has a mostly gentler feel to it thanks to the slower tempo and laid back vocals and instrumentals, however towards the end of the song the tempo gets cranked up and we're treated to energetic guitar riffs.

Halfway delivers not only another outstanding and upbeat tune but also more elegant lyrics for our auditory pleasure.

Heavy On My Soul concludes this magnificent album with a beautiful song, which delivers both a captivating melody but more of this Singer/Songwriter's unique and inimitable Gospel style and also a big round of applause to those amazing Guitar riffs.

Lost My Nerve once again showcases a unique instrumental arrangement, Holly's vocal performance is flawless and the lyrics are chock full of raw emotion.

Panic Attack serves up supercharged beats and lightning fast vocals, this track effortlessly demonstrates Holly's musical adaptability.

Shaken has a cheerful vibe to it, thanks to the mood lifting lyrics and positive feel of the captivating beats.

There Goes My Man also has a upbeat feel to it thanks to a first class vocal performance, emotive lyrics and beats that entertain from start to finish.

Taylor Casey delivers first class vocals, entertaining instruments and intelligent lyrics


23 Year Old Taylor Casey's first music release features a Grammy nominated songwriter as well as studio support from Billy Joel's rhythm section.

Last year saw the Californian local pass his time as a hobbyist musician in between surfing and studying for his degree in Business Administration, the skills which he put to good use.

As soon as Taylor recorded the EP he was once again bitten by the travel bug, which this time navigated him to Austin, Texas.

Heaven Knows is a catchy and upbeat melody, this tune wouldn't be out of place as the theme tune to an American Sitcom.

The Ballad of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is another positive and delightful number

The Kindness Of Others dazzles us with the pleasant sound of the harmonica and Taylor's first class vocal performance.

Holy Water has a rock feel to it as Taylor delivers another corker of a track, from entertaining instruments to intelligent lyrics.

Taylor wraps up the EP with the rock and roll flavoured If I Die Tomorrow and I couldn't think of a better way to bring an end to the musical proceedings then with this belter of a song.
