Get your lighters and flags ready to wave in the air to Bedroomtrap songstress Maryann second track from her upcoming EP "This Is What The Moon Sounds Like" (due October 30) titled "The Long Way".
The Reggae, Hip-hop and R&B infused track is unique in sound and get your body moving to the hot beat provided by producer Sbvace (who also spit a 16 on the track). Let's not forget my girl Maryann singing about her devotion for her bae!
Listen to The Long Way and tell me what you think about this hot track in the comment section!
Ok, I must admit when it comes to house music I am a novice! The only house music I hear is when I'm shopping at a department store and it kinda put me a chill mood!
When I heard A-Minor's latest track it reminded me of the music I only hear at the stores but only better! Amin Hamzianpour better known as A-Minor is a London based songwriter and producer who started his musical career a few years ago on YouTube providing the world with beat making tutorials! In 2013 A-Minor released his debut deep house hit Thinking Bout The Things that has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube!
Someone You Love is the perfect combination of Deep House and Soul thanks to the soulful vocals of Ruby Wood! A-Minor describes the making of the track: "Ruby Wood (of Submotion Orchestra) and I actually wrote this in the first session we had together. I had some basic chords laid down and it was just one of those songs that came to us very quickly and was a lot of fun to write. She has such a sultry tone and it just made sense to capture that vibe on the track. That's probably why the production ended up being a bit different to most of the stuff I’ve put out because I wanted to stay true to her vocal."

Los Angeles, California band The Rebirth released the lyrical video for their first single This Is Coming To? from their sophomore album BEING THRU THE EYES OF A CHILD (due early 2015) on the group's indie label Walk Talkin!
Filled with funk and soul, This Is Coming To? is a track will put you in a chill mood. If you are a lyrical person like me, you appreciate the many scenarios the group presents that leads back to the question "what all this is coming to?" The band exclusively premiered the soulful track on SoulTracks.com and received high regards!

This week, a lot of musicians has graced us with new albums and EP's. So much music, I have to share these wonderful tunes through a series of posts (be on the look out)! For now, I hand picked four great R&B and Soul albums you must listen to! Let's get started with a quick album review! Up first Mr. David Hollister!
R&B, Soul & Gospel singer and member of the 90's hit group Blackstreet, David Hollister released his seventh solo studio album titled Chicago Winds... The Saga Continues. The 10 track album features a variety of soul and R&B music on tracks such as I'm Waiting, Cold (both tracks have that Timbaland uptempo production sound) and the title track Chicago Wind (I love this ballad)!
Anthony Hamilton got an early start to the holidays as he released his first Christmas album tilted
Home for the Holidays. The North Carolina singer put his soulful spin on holiday classics tunes such as James Brown's Saint Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto, and Little Drummer Boy. The album also features fellow musicians Gavin Degraw (Home for the holidays), ZZ Ward (a bluesy spin on Away in a Manger) and Chaka Khan (The Christmas Song- I love this song)!
