WARD enters the spotlight with infectious new song and video for Sober

February 28, 2019

  Sometimes your world maybe spinning out of control, and the only thing left to do is ride it out.  That is exactly what Los Angeles based Ward does in his latest video. He has just released a truly captivating and gravity defying video for his ultra-infectious new track. Sober.  The video brings such realism into the ups and downs and a glimpse into the uncertainty of being grounded or Sober.  We had to find out more about the filming of the video?   The video was shot on 90º angles using fabricated sets in Ward’s home, studio and on the street in Culver City. The images mirror Ward’s words and the sentiment of losing the ground beneath his feet. “For the ‘floating’ shots, we had to look at every take in a different way, sort of re-learning how to see things, tricking ourselves into trusting the shots would look right tilted off axis.

John Mayer captures pure honesty with new song, “I Guess I Just Feel Like”

February 22, 2019

We have the perfect way to kick off your weekend! How about a spectacular new song from John Mayer?  He has just released the infectious new track, I Guess I Just Feel Like and we are absolutely hooked. The emotionally driven song captures a pure raw vulnerability that will hit home for you, as it did for us.  There are so many artists that are trying to “create” the next big hit by using algorithms or the latest in technology.  With that being said, we applaud John for filling the void for real, honest music, in its natural form,  that evokes emotion and brings us a piece of hope. Check out John’s instagram post which talks about the making of the new song,   View this post on Instagram   #tbt I spent August and September of last year looking for new songs and couldn’t find them. I was thinking with my ultra-aesthetic brain, trying to write the tune I thought would be cool to have via sequencers, plugins and effects. (That process has worked [Read More]

SJae’s debut EP, FIRST:  listen and enjoy

March 12, 2019

Patrick O’Heffernan I am always curious – and sometimes a bit apprehensive – when a music producer decides to put out a personal record.  Many producers are good musicians and songwriters, but a smaller number actually have the voice, the songwriting and music chops, and the feel for a personal album.  FIRST, the debut album by long-time producer SJae (Sammy Jay) shows clearly that she has the songwriting and musical chops plus an extraordinary feel for what works and what grabs a listener.  FIRST is an expansive display of her talents and a musical and emotional delight. SJae was the UK’s first female music producer – and she excelled in a very tough business for a woman…all the way to a Mercury nomination, the UK equivalent of a Grammy.   After a decade in the UK, she moved to  LA, America’s music capital and a very competitive environment for anyone of any gender.  But despite the competition, she continued to excel to the point where she has been called  “the best in the business” by [Read More]
