Four-Time Grammy Award Winner, Lenny Kravitz’s New Album “Raise Vibration,” is in stores and available online now. Steeped in Rock-n-Soul, from his humble beginnings, Lenny’s music has always been an alternative. He’s an ARTIST! Staying true to himself has enabled him to sustain the past 29 years. Next year marks 30, since Kravitz’s first release, through Virgin records.
Racism is alive and casting lots of un-wellness among the people of our nation. While millions find it hard to believe… “Stay Woke,” as it’s when one is blind that ye suffers most. Through it all – racism then and now – multi-millions come together through music…
“Life is full of ups and downs… the carousels of love. Good times, bad times, smiles and frowns… Don’t give up on me…,” are words uttered by Damian Marley on his latest release “Stony Hill.” His 6th album, his brother Stephen joins him, on the songs “Medication,” “Grown & Sexy,” and “Perfect Picture.”
Blink-182, Gallant, Lukas Graham, Mike Posner, PartyNextDoor and SOJA are all among the Grammy Award nominees for 2017. Recently I did an article on the fact that Blink has never won a Grammy. The veterans in music among those mentioned, it’s their first time among Grammy nominees, I’m hoping their CD “California” is their “Golden Ticket” for Best Rock Album. http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2016/10/03/didnt-blink-182-win-a-grammy-a-musical-yorn/
I don’t believe the The Recording Academy will deny selecting Halsey or Lukas Graham for Best New Artist at next year’s Grammy Awards.
Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage. Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.” Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”
They actually haven’t. A band that’s been around since 1995, they’ve performed at the ceremony, presented there, even announced Tom DeLonge returning to the band there.
I find I have to search for new music every year. Apart from those that are promoted heavily, generally consumers are left in the dark, unless they go surfing online or hear about something by word of mouth. Last year one of my favorites, that seems like it will never stop getting exposure, is the song “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
