Charlotte Cardinale - Florescentia #Flyah #Music #Review




Charlotte (Deborah) Cardinale is an Italian emerging singer-songwriter born in Palermo 21 years ago and then moved to Rome. Her passion for music started during childhood, while listening to David Bowie and Pink Floyd’s records with her dad. A little later she began studying guitar and piano; at 18 she began writing her first songs in English and shortly after started performing in the first Roman clubs, thus making her music known to the public. Her musical influences range from Amy Winehouse to Lana Del Rey up to Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash. Florescentia was produced by Maqueta Records with the participation of the crowdfunding platform Musicraiser. Arranged by Luca Bellanova and with Antonio Lana on drums, Gerlando Accurso on bass and Simone Battista on acoustic and electric guitars, Florescentia was mixed and mastered by Fabrizio Simoncioni and Fernando Alba at the DPOT Studios of Prato and Rolls Noise in Rome. Soon the video and single Dust And Tears will be released on the artist and Maqueta Records’ YouTube channel.


When first hearing Charlotte Cardinale's EP Florescentia I was blown away instantly.  I had to say to myself "this artist is remarkable!"  Her style is like a mixture of Blues and rock n roll and kind of remind me of Macy Grey and Jill Scott.  The band has a sound that would be compared to The Roots although they are not in the same genre.  Her lyrics are heart felt from the beginning to the end.  I can feel her perception on life and love because I have been through the ups and downs of relationships.  She has a sound that is genuine and her range is exceptional by all cost.  The Song that stood out the most to me was the second song on this EP which is entitled "Hands Together".  The way the guitars strum on this song really allows you to feel the pain and vibe of Charlotte Cardinale.  The instrumentation is awesome and the mixing is wonderful.  The music could definitely compete with the industry and win over the hearts of the listeners.   I have to say that third track "Monday" kind of went left field.  To me the upbeat tempo  throws off the feel of the album but still in all this is a great project.  I really was expecting something else when I first saw the name of this track because Monday's are usually mundane.  Maybe that sound is a reflection of her background and in today's time in order to be great you have to be different and pure.  If I had to rate this album on a scale of 1-10 I will give it a 8 for the lyrics, instrumentation composition and performance.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
