Brown Kid recorded his first EP ‘Rusty Strings’ in Nashville, so surely we can expect acoustic-based tracks. Beyond that, what I like the most are his clear vocals and the interesting narrative of his lyrics. It’s like if he’s telling captivating stories with a carefree attitude. He brings you an easygoing afternoon of Pop, Folk, and even Rap rhythms with his six tracks. On a side note, the talented artist from Peru has a signature sound that has been compared to Jack Johnson. Well, it’s less romantic but with a good touch of humor. Scroll down to read my thoughts on each track, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the whole concept of this feel-good EP.
1 — Welcome To My Funeral More than one will be surprised with the opening track’s authentic title. I would dare to say he takes the form of a ghost to welcome guests so that they can enjoy the show of this ceremony. It isn’t a sad song at all, in fact, he is using a peculiar comical speech.
2 — La Farra According to the translation from Spanish to English, “La Farra” means “The Party”. Well, it’s a short song which describes in great detail an entertaining atmosphere, it feels fresh and invites listeners to chill out with its upbeat rhythm.
3 — Hole In The Wall Here the guitar strings shine and prevails most of the time. However, Brown Kid sings some verses about the well-traveled.
4 — Jamaicamecrazy Interestingly this tune feels like a tribute to one of the most popular islands of the Caribbean, Jamaica. There’s no doubt he admires everything about this magical place and its culture. Not to mention, it features rap, as there’s a good delivery of rhymes. Trust me, it’s pretty funny!
5 — Rusty Strings I really love this track as it describes the struggles that face immigrants on a daily basis. The artist felt inspired by his father that came from far away to live the American dream. Obviously, it has a very special meaning for some of us who know closely know the difficulties faced by this hardworking people.
6 — Complacency Finally, the last track carries an important message. If you pay attention to his honest words, he makes a call to appreciate all the things we have. In conclusion, just find some time to relax and take delight in its laidback vibe and leisurely pace.

Jolynn J Chin Goes ‘Beyond Classical’ & Transforms Instrumental Music Into Something Fresh
When it comes to talking about music, I’m very open-minded to explore innovative proposals. This is the case of Jolynn J Chin whose ‘Beyond Classical’ EP is up for Grammy consideration this year. Certainly, she brings fresh air into the world of Instrumental music. First of all, she’s a piano-playing prodigy that unlike other classically trained artists has opted for modernity. Without a doubt, there’s a good balance between traditional elements and contemporary ones like Electronica and Pop.
The set of arrangements provide many added values in each track. For instance, if you’re a fan of Michael Jackson, then you’ll be glad to hear her genuine “Billie Jean” cover. While the chilled vibe of “Danza Hungara” is going to take you on a haunting nostalgic journey. That’s not to say there aren’t intense moments. In fact, her very own energetic version of “Toccata” sends shivers down your spine. All in all, ‘Beyond Classical’ is pure perfection!

Introducing Derek Lai And His Modern Acoustic Pop
Singer/Songwriter Derek Lai is one of those indie artists that create emotions with music. Lately, I think only a handful of new talents from Canada have done it successfully like himself. What’s more, most of his songs are a synonym of modern acoustic Pop like his recent single “Empty-Handed”. Of course, the spontaneity of the moment is a fundamental part of his creative process. Not to mention, he puts to work his imagination when it comes to creating stories that become authentic songs. All in all, his signature sound isn’t quite the same without splendid guitar arrangements. Wanna give it a try? Then stream in full “Empty-Handed” mixed by George Seara, who has worked with artists like Shawn Mendes and more big names in the industry.

Here’s Something You Need To Know About Alt-Pop Duo Jones Beach
Emerging European duo Jones Beach has released the first single off their debut EP, ‘Where’s The Rest Of Me?’ available via Spotify. It seems they have found a niche within the Alt-Pop scene after they dropped “Mr. Regular”. Besides, it has become obvious this amazing project is inspired by the 90s era. For a satisfying blend of rockish guitars, lots of riffs and drums listen to purely organic instrumentation below.
Musically speaking, Soul also plays an important role with regard to their signature sound. On a side note, the duo is made up of Fari who is the main vocalist and plays the bass/drums, while Dave is a true guitar aficionado with over 25 years of experience. Bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bloc Party, and Marvin Gaye is what keep them motivated to create new music. After many hours of hard work in the studio, I’m glad to know the ‘Where’s The Rest Of Me?’ EP is now a reality.
