The Classic Rock Band Is Back In Business With A Modern Sense Of Attitude With Roi & The Secret People
Roi & The Secret People
When Roi & The Secret People began their musical journey, a constant flow of interested musicians turned up and did their thing. This pot-luck aspect of their early performances inspired the intriguing name. Founder Mike Roi just had one vision in mind, a particular rock sound that was burning in his heart. Now that they've established a serious following and been cemented in place through the entire experience, we get a new single to throw on any time we like. The group have played a huge array of venues and shows including a sold out Musikfest and support slots for Enuff Z Nuff, Quire Boys, and Pretty Boy Floyd. What ever comes next it surely will be Golden.
It begins with a swish of distorted electric guitar. A cool and breezy blues lick begins to tell the music story before Roi enters with his vocal. A Rolling Stones style delivery rocks to the groove alongside double lead guitars that twill and dive along fretboard acrobatics. A chunky bass fills the spaces where the beats punch the bar, the deep and wholesome flight of the lower section keeps a distinctive and flamboyant funk attitude as the rock n roll band keep the energy spiralling higher. Memorable chorus hooks and melodic intersections bring a clear sense of class and musicianship that sings with quality.

Groove With It
From All Welcome To Planet Ree-Vo
Expected to hit the streaming sites and record shops on the 29th July, the debut album from Bristol duo Ree-Vo is already making a name for itself. A great success of continual output has meant the pair have established themselves in several circles and found like-minded collaborators and creators in every corner. A whole host of mixes and tracks are currently available with a great video of Groove With It from the new record already out there. Composed of rap master T. Relly and sound man Andy Spaceland (aka Jenks), Ree-Vo bring the business through a stereo system of experience. T. Relly is known throughout the city of Bristol for his work with the disadvantaged and for getting it on at all the local club nights. Andy Spaceland came from the land of bass music with Static Sound System all the way up to collaborating with Madonna. Part of 5 Billion in Diamonds with Butch Vig, who worked with Nirvana and Garbage, this twosome of talent truly reaches global dimensions.
Chunky and sinister beats slam down as vocal snips clamour to the sound of a spine-tingling scream. Huge bass driven chords march in a dynamic, expressive, and cinematic manner as quick and snappy lyrics rap and rhyme on the beat every time. A collaboration of vocals enter for the chorus with chanting and pulsations of word that merge into the continuous push of dance and rhythm. Swagger and attitude saunters through the golden alleyway of sound as the crew of cats take the room by storm. Forceful and with an anime quality of being larger than life, Groove With It just takes over and no one wants to stop them.

Burn Your Bridges
The Sound Read journal has been following Princess Maha and her band The Kut for quite some time. First coming to our attention with Hollywood Rock n Roll way back in 2018, we've seen a massive lift-off to the stars with a continual run of progressively successful singles and a bunch of amazing tour dates in between. Culminating their live adventure with a recent run of support slots with Electric Six, the sought-after and supremely talented group have just released their next album. Following on from Valley Of Thorns, this latest record features the two recent singles ANIMO and Satellite. Let's listen to track two, Burn Your Bridges.
A chunky riff and a groovy rhythm layered with sloshy drums bursts through the stillness. Princess Maha begins, her punky grunge delivery resonates with femininity and soul as the band lay down tight and kinetic set pieces. The riffs add up and as the chorus emerges, Maha's vocal rips the clean paper and tears into the realms of metal. The powerful music behind her bashes the chords and melodic chuggery through dynamic and progressive patterns. Plenty of feedback and distortion hangs in the background as The Kut deliver another slicing and forthcoming memory maker.

Everything Must Change
Plenty of people have been waiting a long time to hear this record, Rich Jacques brings his Grammy-Award in music production skills to his own raw talent. This single is from the debut EP of the same name and brings home specified and specialised artistry people can admire. Designing soundscapes and sonic adventures is all part of the package with Jacques as his penmanship conjures infinite possibility within its own realm. Since winning awards for his efforts with Lisa Loeb, and having work featured in shows such as Grey's Anatomy and The Vampire Diaries, the important thing is that we've now got the EP with his name on the front.
Twin tone melody breaks into spacious scale like bubbles rising and snapping against the surface. Rich Jacques adds his voice, a warm and resonant reverb sings within his vocal tone. Elegant tunefulness spreads across the synthesiser and bass as bell sounds and strings describe peaceful and hopeful sensations. We hear the words and deep meaning can be found in the imagery and descriptors that gather with each new verse. The EP promises to be a sensitive and intriguing insight into the relationship between man and his machine.

A fresh EP mixed by the epic Tim Palmer, known for work with Pearl Jam, U2, HIM, The Mission, Tin Machine, Ozzy Osbourne, and Robert Plant, is on its cinematic journey to our ears. Scoring emotionally inspired compositions that are as evocative as they are dynamic, The Caughtery joins the iconic talents of Lisa Tingle of Black Pearl with David Gayler and the EP features drumming from Tom Brechtlein. With Lisa Tingle's back-catalogue of working for shows such as Beverly Hill 90210 and films like Universal Soldier and Spy Kids 3, performing support slots for Stevie Ray Vaughn's Double Trouble, Marcia Ball, and Etta James, and 6 massive solo albums, the huge talents of David Gayler have all the scope they need with his own studio and years of production experience. Here's the latest single.
Drums and guitar frame a wave of keyboards before a break gives rise to bass. The rhythm poises elegantly as chords progress into the verse. Lisa Tingle sings with driving passion as the music roars and revs into blues-style fills of melodic lead guitar. Power rock sentimentalities lick the walls like fire as the chorus bursts into new compositions of melody. A punchy attitude keeps the excitement rising as the ballad style structure delivers a strong and poignant message.

George Phoenix Bonds
Be With You
The RnB and Soul man from Maryland is back with another wave of vocal and rhythmic artistry. Working with Indienink, a music promotion firm headed by Marlene Palumbo, Bonds has crafted his sound to match the tastes of his global audience. Gaining radio attention on a worldwide scale and making a good run of headlines in the process, it's always exciting when George makes something fresh for us to hear.
A unison of melody opens with keyboards and vocal. Smooth and poetic lines unravel as snare begins to drift into a dreamy pulse. As the pitch drops from a heartfelt and tiptoe into deep and gestured rap, the energy shifts to reveal the heart inside of the communication. As if the polarity of the song shows the face we give on the outside and the passion we feel on the inside, we get a double dose of George.
