Music Review Breathless – The Sidleys By Yami Cabrera



Music Review Breathless – The Sidleys By Yami Cabrera
[English]
Music connects diverse people in different countries and continents in an incredible way. A song can unify experiences of human beings who never thought to associate. Today we see how music is also capable of uniting a family, and becoming the center of its strength. The Sidleys are an example to follow in this regard. This family has managed to build their history through the fascinating language of music. The composition and performance of this art has been the combining element between the couple Steve Sidleys and Annie Sidleys, and their sons Sean, Ian and Colin.
The Sidleys over the years have formed a solid musical group. The band, since its creation in 2013 in Bethesda, Maryland, has already accumulated important albums such as Bittersweet (2013) and The Love You Make (2017). To this fabulous record career, The Sidleys add their most recent production, Breathless. This album could be the phonographic consolidation of the band, as well as the result of their diverse experiences of life as a family.
Breathless has a musical diversity and an incredibly strong energy. Each of the tracks tells captivating stories, through beautifully crafted lyrics and Annie's strenuous voice. The Sidleys achieve an interesting mix between musical styles such as Rock, Pop, Funk and Soul. The musical arrangements are totally coherent with the dramaturgical discourse; within them it is evident that the combination of the classical professional formation of the band members, especially the talented multi-instrumentalist Steve Sidleys. The band´s musical influences are easy to distinguish in sound elements from the music of artists like Stevie Wonder, Jeff Buckley, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul McCartney, The Beatles, Keith Emerson, The Police, etc.
The 11 songs that appear in the production are a sample of the positive and necessary healing message that The Sidleys intends to convey. The energy of “Lately I Don´t See You Anymore”; Annie's beauty and vocal prowess on songs like "Lullabies" and "Sweetest Hush"; and the virtuosity in the interpretations of "Break Your Fall" and "Unbroken", caught my attention. However, there is no doubt that "Breathless" is the center of all the sentiment professed on the album. This track exposes the extreme emotions that caused this production, through a simple musical arrangement with little instrumentation but a powerful harmonic elaboration.
The performing quality is one of the strengths of this phonogram. Annie's voice is just wonderful, she sings like she's telling a dream story; the technique and rhythmic combinations used by Sean are evidence of his prodigious performance on drums; the enveloping bass sound played by Colin is sensational; and Ian's piano accompaniments denote an advanced understanding of harmony and jazz performance techniques.
The album was released on June 12, and is available now on majors streaming platforms. Also, you will have the possibility to buy the CD through the band's website thesidleys.com. This band promises to surprise his followers with this new album. Hopefully all expectations will be met.

La música conecta personas diversas en distintos países y continentes de manera increíble. Una canción puede unir experiencias de seres humanos que jamás pensaron asociarse. Hoy vemos como también la música es capaz de unir a una familia, y convertirse en el centro de su fortaleza. The Sidleys son un ejemplo a seguir en este aspecto. Esta familia ha sabido construir su historia a través del fascinante lenguaje de la música. La composición e interpretación de este arte ha sido el elemento unificador entre la pareja Steve Sidley y Annie Sidley, y sus hijos Sean, Ian y Colin. 
The Sidleys en el transcurso de los años han ido conformando una sólida agrupación musical. La banda, desde su creación en 2013  en Bethesda, Maryland ya acumula importantes albums como Bittersweet (2013) y The Love You Make (2017). A esta fabulosa trayectoria discográfica, The Sidleys suman su más reciente producción, Breathless.Este album de 11 canciones pudiera ser la consolidación fonográfica de la banda, así como el restultado de sus diversas experiencias de vida como familia. 
Breathless es un disco con una diversidad musical y una energía increíblemente fuerte. Cada uno de los temas cuentan cautivadoras historias, a través de letras muy bien elaboradas y de la estenuante voz de Annie.  The Sidleys logran una interesante mixtura entre estilos musicales como Rock, Pop, Funk y Soul. Los arreglos musicales son totalmente coherentes con el discurso musico-dramatúrgico, en ellos se evidencia la combinación de la formación profesional clásica de los miembros de la banda, especialmente el talentoso multi-intrumentista Steve Sidley. Las influencias musicales de este cantautor y del resto de la banda son fáciles de distinguir en elementos sonoros provenientes de la música de artistas como Stevie Wonder, Jeff Buckley, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul McCartney,  The Beatles, Keith Emerson,The Police, etc. 
Las 11 canciones que aparecen en la producción son muestra del mensaje positivo y de necesaria sanación que pretende trasmitir The Sidley. En especial captaron mi atención la energía de “Lately I Don´t See You Anymore”; la belleza y el destreza vocal de Annie en temas como “Lullabies” y “Sweetest Hush”; y el virtuosismo en las interpretaciones de “Break Your Fall”y “Unbroken”. Sin embargo, no hay dudas de que “Breathless” es el centro de todo el sentimiento que se profesa en el album. Este tema expone las emociones extremas que provocaron esta producción, a través de un arreglo musical sencillo con poca instrumentación pero una poderosa elaboración armónica.  
Considero que la calidad interpretativa es una de las fortalezas de este fonograma. En primer lugar sobresale la maravillosa voz de Annie, quién canta cada uno de los temas con tal delicadeza y ternura como si contara la historia de un sueño. La técnica y las acertadas combinaciones rítmicas utilizadas por Sean resaltan su prodigiosidad al tocar el drum. Por otro lado, el groove del bajo interpretado por Colin es sensacional. Y, por supuesto, los acompañamientos del piano ejecutado por Ian denotan un avanzado conocimiento de la armonía y de técnicas jazzísticas de interpretación. 
El album fue lanzado en el pasado 12 de Junio y se encuentra disponible en plataformas de streaming como Youtube y Spotify. Además, tendrás la posibilidad de adquirir el CD físico  a través del sitio web de la banda thesidleys.com. Si te gusta la música realizada con buen gusto y bien interpretada, es tiempo de que te acerques a la música de The Sidleys.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
