Liz Harper – Lonely Bottle
Genre  : Blues: Soul: Pop
A modern day, Amy Winehouse inspired track. Combines jazz vocals, live instruments and electronic beats together, to create a sultry, inviting, new age blues vibe. Trying to bring the sultry, emotional vibes of jazz and soul vocals, into new age music scene. With my Producer Chunkyluv, we combine my bluesy vocals with alluring, sexy RnB beats, to give it a little something new. Big inspiration for vocals and lyrics is Amy Winehouse, and the feel and beats would have to be NAO. Lonely Bottle also includes a seductively sad vibe, with the addition of saxophone from the talented Joel Sena.


Sepia – Cool
Genre : Alternative Rock, Indie Rock, Mainstream Rock
Sepia is an Alternative Rock band from Baltimore, MD, often described as familiar in a unique kind of way. Their music will draw you in with introspective themes, catchy hooks, and hints of 90’s nostalgia. Starting in 2006 playing acoustical folk and rock tunes, Sepia has since incorporated acoustic-based roots into a unique blend of original music. Pulling from a set of influences spanning rock, blues, and post-punk, their catalog consists of a diverse mix of well-crafted and energetic tunes. Regardless of tags or labels, they are distinctly “..::Sepia::..”. https://www.reverbnation.com/sepia/song/29148776-cool

Breaking All The Rules -Rise Up
The song is called “Rise Up” and its a modern day reggae song with a twist. When I wrote this song it was meant to be inspirational for all people. I asked JDAPS , a rapper from Miami to write a few versus. Well to my surprise what he heard when I played the track for him was a song about the struggles that are happening right now in our country and the song turned into more of a protest. I sent it to my producer for the final mix and and he was blown away and told me that this song was right on point and to leave it the way it was.
