GOLIATH

 Let your guard down, lower your arsenal

Let's go another round, let's burn it to the ground

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm talking to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love those things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a wall around me, I just can't seem to find

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

I'll climb the highest tree, swim in the darkest sea

End this calamity, come to reality

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm reaching to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love the things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a bridge behind me,

I'll burn it to the ground

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

CELLAR DOOR

Am I a victim of circumstance?

Or can I lean on to you?

Present the jury with your defense

Guilty verdict by random chance

Was I replaced with a perfect tense?

Got my time wasted on you

Let's keep those theories for rainy days

She might be telling the truth

So trap me, close the cellar door

I think, I've been here before

Dungeon walls they feel so cold

Torture me with words of gold

Was it sacrifice, lonely paradise

A sullen box of tears

Dirty alibis in a whiskey glass

A lifetime worth of lies... How do you survive?

I turn around and I fall asleep

Cannot stay awake

Why should I shed my skin for you?

Nightmare's coming to play

Thief and a liar, I'm finally sober

Started this fire, I am the motor

Flames rising higher, over my shoulder

Burning desire, but I'm getting colder

REVOLUTION

Free your mind from electrical thoughts

Learn to release what you have been taught

Find me a reason, find me a reason

To fight

Self-absorbed, concieded and blonde

Get on your knees, obey and succumb

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight

This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Save your soul, maybe I'm not able

To belong, this is not a fable

Look for more, than some crumbs

Right of your table

Revolution come on,

Revolution, tag along

See the forest thru the trees

Reminisce childhood memories

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight Is there a cure for this disease

Hurricane rises from a breeze

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Does it hurt? Does it sting?

Does it burn from somewhere within?

Liron Single Review / Interview

 
LIRON RETURNS WITH NEW SUMMER SINGLE “PINA COLADAS”
20 July 2018 (Toronto, ON) – After teasing the track earlier this month, Award-Winning singer/songwriter Liron returns with triumphant new single “Pina Coladas”. Co-produced by Liron and Producers Jeff Mcollough (Shania Twain, Chris De Burgh)  and Max River (Shawn Mendes, Jonah Marias, Sebastian Olzanski) and written by Liron, “Pina Coladas” is a sure-fire Summer hit with a fun and carefree vibe, about escaping your worries and living your life!
“Pina Coladas” is the first new single released by Liron since “I Love The Feeling” in August 2016. The track reached 50,000 views and within the first hour got the hashtag #ilovethefeelingvideo to the third top trending hashtag on Twitter worldwide, passing IHeartRadio’s Britney Spears’ inspired tag #Iheartlovesbritney.  She has amassed over 15,000 followers on Instagram, nearly 6,000 followers on Twitter and nearly 3,000 likes on Facebook.
Since graduating from production and audio engineering school, Liron has been busily honing her craft and developing a strong social media presence, and is now on the verge of taking the pop music world by storm. Her new single “Pina Coladas” is the next step in this incredible journey.
 

Liron Single Review

Produced by Max River and Jeff Mcullough, one would expect the new single to be amazing, and musician Liron certainly does not disappoint. Piña Coladas is a summer anthem, the interesting edm sounds accompanied by Liron's powerful vocals makes for a delicious and diverting sundowner.

A change from her previous tracks, Piña Coladas is as refreshing and invigorating as its namesake. Liron's past tracks carry the same beat, but lack the power and confidence behind her vocals. Signs of further development in her sound has enabled a more impactful vocal which has allowed the track to reach new highs. The song is incredibly catchy and only needs one listen before you know all the words. Fans of Ariana Grande, Katy perry or Olivia O’Brien will love this single!

A Piña Coladas has everything in it needed to create a cool summer tune. One dash of a smooth EDM vibe, two dashes of hearty vocals, and a hint of romance. Everything needed is covered in Liron's latest track. When listening, you get visions of a tranquil summer's day, you can hear the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore, and can see the frost forming on your freshly made piña colada.its almost dangerous to listen to, all thoughts of a productive work day disappear.

Liron's former music is about yearning for love, but in the new single, there is a sense of freedom which is empowering for many men and women alike. The song promotes happiness with is slick summer beat and many people will find themselves forgetting about the day's woes.

On social media, Liron portrays herself as a sweet aspiring Musician , which allows for a larger audience across all different age groups. Liron posts manage keep the audience interested but not overwhelmed which is no easy feat. Liron's posts are informative across all social media platforms and are definitely worth a follow.

Overall, the latest single Piña Colada by Liron is definitely worth a listen or two. I say kick back, have a listen, and try to resist the urge of making a piña colada. This single is a success, and I can't wait to hear her future music and hopefully some collaborations.

Liron Interview

Good morning, could you tell me how you found out about The Old School Project?

I originally found out about The Old School Project because of a love for music blogs, and a set of

recommendations from friends to view your site.

What bands/Musicians are you influenced by?

I was obsessed with 90s-2000s divas growing up. My biggest inspirations from that era were probably Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera. More recently however, I am inspired by Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Olivia O’Brien.

What was the inspiration behind the title piña colada?

The song Piña Coladas was written first and the title given after. With the songs vacation vibe and carefree message I had to really think about which drink is, to me at least, the best to sip on when on vacation or at the beach etc. Personally, that drink was the piña colada.

What's the plan for your future career as a Musician?

The plan, currently, is just to release as much music as I can and hopefully have people enjoy it.

Are there any collaborations in the future and if you had the chance who would you collaborate  with and why?

At the moment no, but I have a few people in mind for future collaborations. My dream collaboration would be Harry Styles. I love his work and his personality is all about caring for the people and social justice which I'm all for.

Describe the Creative process. Is there a certain time or emotion needed to write?

I think, to write anything, there is a certain emotive process to it. For me, writing comes easiest when I'm in a pretty emotional state, whether it is good or bad.

What is the ultimate direction for your music. Fame and fortune or everlasting legacy?

Haha, I mean, that would be insanely amazing but I think my goal isn't to bathe in a bathtub of diamonds and hundred dollar bills. I just want people to use my music as a way to heal or grow. The whole point of this song was to inspire people to be who they are in an overtly judgemental world. When they play Piña Coladas, I want young women to not focus on the idealism of love or the impossibility of perfection, I want the focus to be on enjoying life, because I know it's cliches but life is Super short and there is no time to look back or forward- you have to live in the moment.

How has your music evolved throughout the years?

When I started writing poems I was 11. I transitioned into songwriting when I was 16, and I was in a completely different place emotionally. I was insecure about myself- how I looked, how I acted and how I dressed. I was upset with myself for things I couldn't control but as I got older I realised who I was and that who I am is pretty cool. I think that's when my music took a dramatic turn. That's when I started writing songs like Piña Coladas.

Are you a full time Musician or do you have a job on the side?

I am, as of right now, a full time Musician.

And finally, one that I must ask… are you particularly fond of Piña Coladas?

Hahah, I love this question! I don't really drink but even if I did I doubt I would like Piña Coladas as I hate

coconut. I did have a really nice pineapple smoothie once on a cruise, it was blended pineapple and crushed

ice, INSIDE OF A PINEAPPLE. How cool is that! But no, not a fan of Piña Coladas.

Son of an amateur musician, Sulimar Rass began his career at a very early age performing at festivals and bars in his hometown, Dom Pedrito, in Rio Grande do Sul, almost at the border with Uruguay. Based in Pelotas, he opened the RASS School of Music and graduated in Phonographic Production. 2016 he released "Absurd Conclusions", his first album. Far from the Gaucho stereotype, Rass lyrics are philosophic and romantic, while his arrangements mix Brazilian urban influences and rhythms from the River de la Plata Region. Still waters run deep.

(GF) When did your relationship to music?

I was born in an extremely musical family that has always encouraged me a lot, my father was an amateur musician and until now music aficionado. At the age of fourteen I received my first payment as a musician. Since then I never stopped dealing with music. My life was practically all dedicated to music, living from her and for her.

(GF) How would you define the kind of music you do?

(SR) I often say that my three strongest influences are the Brazilian southern folk music, instrumental music (from all genres) and Brazilian popular music, but I am also influenced by jazz, bossa nova, classic, rock. I think the sound I make is universal. It can be played and enjoyed everywhere.

(GF) What about your new album "Canções Inerentes" (Inherent Songs)?

It will be released on all digital platforms in September 2018 and in physical format in October. It is heavily influenced by rhythms and themes pertinent to the region southern Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina with modern arrangements and strong jazz and classic influences. I recorded part of it in Argentina, produced by Sebastián Perkal, winner of a Latin Grammy in 2010. The musical production is signed by composer and arranger Edu Martins. Edu has worked as a musician, producer and arranger over the last few decades alongside Brazilian music artists such as Cesar Mariano, Guinga, Milton Nascimento and Gal Costa, among others and also international artists like George Benson and Dave Liebman. In addition to Edu Martins, the pianist Mauro Filho takes part in the album. Mauro is a member of Edu Martins Trio and has performed with saxophonist David Lieberman, Débora Blando and Geraldo Flach. Mariano Cantero was in charge of the percussions. Mariano is also a teacher at the La Plata Graduate Conservatory in Argentina. He coordinates workshops in Córdoba, Tucumán, Mendoza and Rosario. He is also a member of the "Acá Seca Trio" and the prestigious percussion ensemble "La Bomba of Time ", directed by Santiago Vázquez.

(GF) Future projects?

After the release of the album, I will dedicate my time to conclude and release my online course for musicians who seek to improve their musical knowledge. I also want to publish my first book. It will be called "The surprises of the alter ego". A compilation of short stories that portray everyday´s life in a humorous way.

Spotlight On International Music

My love for Jam band music is innate within me as a person but for the past few years I have been delving further and further into music from all around the world. These influences and musical contributions to humanity itself are far-reaching and grand in the scheme of things. Music is the language of us all. It is the root of the universe and the rhythm of life itself. American music has influenced people from all over the world but the industry can be very selfish and close-minded. In this editorial, I would like to encourage all of my readers to listen to and engage in new music and especially, music from other countries, you never know what's going to speak to your soul.

While Afro-beat is not new by any means lately, I have been seeing a resurgence of this West African tradition, which takes it influences from Jazz and other Western musical derivatives. Felt Kuti seems to be the originator or at least the most famous of all Afrobeat artists from the 1970s and beyond but there are many new artists doing the same thing that possibly don't get as much recognition. Besides Fela’s son Femi and grandson Seun, who keep this tradition alive, The Antibalas have emerged from Afro-beat, Reggae and Latin music combined. If you want to explore new music and rhythms start The Antibalas, they are one of the most original and danceable bands I have seen in years. 

Tinariwen has taken the world by storm this year and if you haven't heard of this band, you have to check them out immediately. This band turns traditional Arabic music on its head and adds hard hitting, rock sounds and musical structures. They recently did their first tour of America with resounding success. 

 

We never seem to talk about Australian music enough and they seem to have taken the psychedelic tradition from the 1960s on to the next level. A few bands come to mind when I think of the new psychedelic Australian musical and cultural movement. King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard are psychedelic rock meets progressive punk mixed with Celtic rhythms not heard in popular music today. It's really hard to describe King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard so, it's best just to listen to them. They are the only band to have a completely atonal album and their music videos are completely wild and eccentric. They toured North America this year and sold out almost every performance. I'm sure you will hear more about them soon. The Babe Rainbow is another Australian act that has caught my attention with their groovy, smooth, psychedelic flow. Songs like ‘Planet Junior’ and ‘Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest” can immediately take you back in time and are great examples of how this band incorporates sitar and ambient sounds.

 

 

If you're interested in World Music and International Music, I suggest you check out these bands and see where it takes you. I am also interested in expanding my musical knowledge and if anyone has any other international bands that I should check out, please feel free to drop me an email or comment. 

Keep Your Ears And Heart Open,

Olivia Henry Single Review

Olivia Henry is sweet yet seductive singer and songwriter. The sexy and slow tempo of her music accompanied by her sensuous vocals allow for a sultry sound. Olivia Henry’s vocal reminds me of a soul singer from the 70’s, her sound is a mix of Amy Winehouse meets June Christy, creating the ultimate jazz sounding vocal.

The latest single Gotta Run is a work of art. The mix of instruments fit perfectly together and creates a smooth sound that you can’t help but drink up. The bewitching vocals paired with the soft drumbeat in the background create an almost R&B sounding track. The lyrics depict a woman waiting for her lover until she decides that she will no longer wait. This highlights something that all women go through in life and creates a sense of self-empowerment and freedom.

The single is very different sounding then her previous tracks. The latest record is a more seductive and soulful song that you would expect to hear in a smoky whiskey bar, where as the previous tracks is more jazz sounding with their vibrant piano sound. The previous tracks I believe were all test runs working towards this latest single where Olivia Henry really honed in on her sound.

Sadly, we don’t see much of miss Henry on Instagram, which in effect is a good thing, as when we do see her, her posts are always thought provoking as well as aesthetic, necessary within the music business. On Facebook though, miss Henry keeps all her fans fully involved with up to date and interesting posts advertising her future gigs and other opportunities. Olivia manages to keep her fans interested and excited for her future in the music world.

Ultimately, Olivia Henry has a promising future in the music world. Her unique sound paired with her sensuous image creates a thrilling listening experience. I personally am looking forward to her future releases and can’t wait to listen to them, as this single gave me an almost powerful feeling as I heard it. Keep a close eye on Olivia Henry!

Olivia will be playing Hotel Cafe's main stage for the first time on Saturday July 14th with some pretty amazing musicians.

Patiotic Album Review

 

Patiotic Album Review

Up and coming new wave musician Patiotic rocks the world of ambien and chill house music with his latest album “Quiet clouds”. Creating an album is quite a feat and Patiotic certainly does not disappoint. The album takes you through a range of sounds that represent the emotions felt throughout the day. Each song is representative of a different time or place which creates a interesting layer of personal emotion to the album. The fact that the musician is so open with his feelings helps the listeners to really connect with what each song is trying to convey.


Overture is a soft and compelling piano piece that portrays the pain and suffering of the different kinds of people on the the city streets. It could be the depressing future for the homeless people and the girls and boys who work the streets, or the representation of the idea about what goes on behind closed doors. The sound of the piece is similar to that of one Yan Tiersan might have composed with its subdued and melancholic melody.


One can imagine hearing “funky tribe” at a cool beach bar at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. Like the name suggests, the song has a funky vibe to it with the upbeat and mesmerising drumming pattern and the sleek melody. The song reminds me of the early evening when everyone is so full of life and happiness. The song itself has an element of daft punk to it with its effortless funky sound which is ironic as the word funk is in the title.


Transatlantic is a catchy tune that one would associate with movie soundtracks such as pirates of the caribbean or star wars. The music takes you on a journey through time with the fast paced and electronic beats. There is a hint of a banjo like sound, perhaps a reference to patiotics cultural heritage but either way it adds an element of sophistication to the track.


A calmer and more melancholic song is “closer to your love”. The wistful vocals provide a layer of heartfelt emotion that the listener can feel as well as hear. The distorted and broken vocal compliments the constant and jubilant beat providing for an emotional and exhilarating listening experience.


Some days i think we all just want to “drift” away. Patiotic creates the perfect anthem to help you get lost into when you wish to just disappear. The soothing beat accompanied by the futuristic melody makes for a calming listen. The guitar solo rips through the soft melody to create a layer of edge to the song and this compliments the ambient tone of the tune altogether.


The jazz vibe on “bossadream” takes you back to the era of latin jazz where the men and women would stay up all night and dance to their heart’s content. The easy going guitar makes for a tranquilizing extra sound on the already relaxing drum beat. The two components mixed together create a melodic and pacifying sounding track.


We all hate paperwork in general but unsurprisingly you cannot bring yourself to hate this song. The EDM vibed beat creates a futuristic sound that’s accompanied by the gentle melody in the background. I imagine this song to be influenced by the early hours of the morning when those who are still awake feel most alive, and those who are asleep dream peacefully. This track is by far the most chilled one on the album.


Everybody has many “Choices” they have to make in their lifetime and these choices define who we are and what we become. This track is influenced by the late nights and boozy times when mistakes are so easily made, especially in a city setting where everything is more readily available. The track is smooth and polished and you would definitely be making the right choice by giving it a listen.

Overall, the album is a success. Whether the tone of the song is happy or sad you are certain to feel something. It’s always wonderful when a musician can get you to personally connect to a song however it’s no easy thing to do.

Luckily for us Patiotic has managed to find the balance between a good sound and a good story.

Patiotic Interview

1. How did you hear about The Old School Project?

I knew about Old School Project from Reverbnation, i have being selected as one of the finalist of a Contest made by Old School Project, and since then i have followed OSP. For that and much more im very happy and greatful for this interview, OSP have supported my music through FB post since then, and that is highly appreciated

2. What is your main inspiration when writing music?

My main inspiration are sounds, city noises. Everything has beats, and those beats i convert them to music. Our whole world is full of sounds, you just have to listen, and you will find a conexion between all those sounds.

3. What’s the plan for after the release?

The plan is to reach the most people who could listen my new album. I just want my music be heard, to show my work. My dream is to make music for trailers, placements on series, etc

4. Any collaborations in the future? And if so who with?

Well, in the past have collaborated with hip hop musician Phanom01, you can find that song in my Spotify profile. On the new album you will find also an amazing collaboration with Langelot where we made a deep trip hop song. I'm always looking for collaborations with singers to vocalize and make new versions of my songs.

5. What made you get into this particular style of music?

I'm immersed in music since I can remember. Listening tango with my grandfather, 60's chilean pop music because my parents, and some 80's music from my brother. So the mix of music that i have had in my head since i was a little kid was a bit extrange. Then at the age of 8 more less i started listening Pink Floyd, and that was an explosion to my mind, and then my exploration to new music and styles took me to a musical trip for almost 20 years that made what im today, a fusion of different styles between rock, pop, electronic, orchestral, and others that you can find in each of my songs

6. When did you start creating your own sound?

From the beginning. I've never made a cover, im not good for that, i love to improvise, tweek sounds, modify parameters, play with them to generate the atmosphere that i want for each song i made.

7. What is your ideal future?

It's hard to say or schedule, everyday everything changes , i love to make music, so i should say that my ideal future is to live by my music. But at this point the only thing i want is get my music heard by thousands of people

8. How have the album pre sales gone?

To be honest... nothing hehehe but i don't really care at this moment. I just want people enjoy what i do.

9. Any new music being made at the moment?

I'm always making new music. Now i'm start thinking in the new album genre, that will be a mix between rock and electronic, ElectroRock. But always making those orchestrals overtures that will be one of my cacracteristics of each álbum

10. Who created the album art and what was the inspiration behind it?

honestly i made it through a template that I liked and modified, with the corresponding authorization obviously. It represents the simplicity and tranquility that it gives to look at the clouds, to see their passage, even though everything is around with constant noise.

Time is of the Essence. It either goes too fast or too slow, but either way we never fully appreciate the time we have until it runs out. To live in the moment is what we all struggle to do. In a world of big corporations and billion dollar deals, we are slaves to our jobs and routines. The latest single “The Moment” by A Second Life is all about time. The past, the present, the future and what it does to people like you and me.

The story behind this song is loss, the loss of an old friend. And I know from experience how difficult it is. I'm only surprised by how productive this song is when it comes to capturing those dream like feelings. “If i knew when, then maybe I would be different”, singer Chris Damphouse croons along to the fingering of guitar strings. This slow start helps to highlight the raw emotions that he is feeling. This line alone taps into the emotions that we all feel about anything and everything. How many times do you sit and question what would of happened if you knew something different, or you did something new? It's a dangerous thing to think, but it was needed in this song to show that everybody hurts when they loose someone.

The song talks about feeling caged in narrow walls, and loosing someone precious to you does this. It often requires great effort to loose this feeling. Six months after Ryan passed, his widow posted on Facebook telling everyone how Ryan would everyone to live, not just a half arsed attempt but to really live for each moment, and that's what triggered this song. Written Lyrically in mere minutes, the song is not short of emotion and is able to appeal to the masses who have lost someone or feel lost themselves. The song inspires for a new kind of living. One I wish to take part in.

The second verse is about the future. “And hope for…” or “dream for” and shows a sense of yearning for a better future. It points out some of the flaws of Everyday life for people now like the wars being fought all over the world. The whimsical dream paired with the alluring guitar and drum beat make for a powerful track, one I see being in a teen movie like “10 things I hate about you” or “Ferris Bueller’s day off”. The song allows for a feeling of self empowerment. I feel sat here now, listening to it, that I can do everything and anything. Everyone deserves to feel this way, and I am thoroughly impressed that A Second Life have managed to capture the Essenes oft his feeling and turn it into something musically genius.

Overall, the latest single is by far the best and most meaningful done by the band A Second Life. I recommend listening when you feel down, because you won't stay that way for long. This band is on the rise and when they make it, we can only hope for more tracks this “The Moment”.

 

Interview with A Second Life

 

How do you know The Old School Project?

We found The Old School Project online. They have been Super supportive of our music!!

Who would you say are your main influences when writing music?

We have deep roots, our grandma was a blues singer. But when we write I’d say U2, 30 seconds to mars and Kings of Leon.

Are you full time Musicians or do you have jobs on the side?

Most of us are aspiring rockstars. I also run a successful personal training business. It’s important to have a lot of balls in the air.

Describe your Creative process. Is there a certain time or emotion needed to write?

Writing is like lighting. It strikes me. Then I write like crazy, after that I usually sit with Dan D to come up with the core of the song. Then our producer Rob Freeman polishes it.

How has your music evolved since the first time playing together?

It’s grown a lot, it’s all about feeling the music, learning each other’s vibe. As a band you have to constantly grow or your music won’t!

How did the band form?

My last band fizzled out, we did so much in such a short time, but most of the band had zero drive. They expected it to just come to them. So I decided to learn guitar in my off time and that was when I met Dan DelVecchio. We hit it of instantly. I didn’t tell him about my music until 6 months later as I didn’t want to talk about it but we had so many ideas to talk about and music just felt right.

Two is company, three is a crowd, describe how the band interacts and what happens when conflict arises.

Listen. The simple trick is to discuss the issues… we don’t really argue!

I like coffee and I like cake but I don’t like coffee cake. Tell me a weird thing you like separately but not together?

Lol I’ve never heard this question before! But I love ice cream and like soda but I hate ice cream soda… does this count?

If you could collaborate with anyone who would it Be? Are there any collaborations in the future?

Ahhhh, that’s easy. U2, but the edge if we have to narrow it down. I love the sound he Creates with his guitars, to me they are magical and they make me feel. At the moment we have no collaborations planned but that doesn’t mean we aren’t open to them!

Do you find yourself living by the phrase “live in the moment” or do you often live in the past or with thought of the future?

This one is my favourite question. So I believe a life lived without passion is a life not lived. So yes I live for the moments. Don’t wait for life to come to you. Make it happen!!

"The Moment" will be On Air 24/7 among other great song by A Second Life.

Follow the band... Support and Enjoy!
