Music Dealers Artist Spotlight: Ode

Ode As the leaves turn from green to yellow, red, purple. The whole feeling of walking down the street changes. Maybe its something in the air, the seasons changing always seem to just make the air smell sweeter. Maybe its the warm colors, only seen once a year bringing back memories. Any reason, I chose my Music Dealers Featured Artist to be Ode. Maybe its because they are influenced by the same sights and winds as I, but something makes them the absolute perfect band to listen to in this fall weather.

Music Dealers Artist Spotlight: Wes Restless

Wes Restless Greetings good people, hoping your having a great Tuesday! I wanted to spotlight an artist whom I think is a true talent. Wes Restless is a singer, songwriter, emcee from Chicago.

Music Dealers Artist Spotlight: Bliss

Bliss Sultry vocals, innovative production, great song writing, all fall perfectly into place to create the music that is; Bliss. My Music Dealers featured artist is a female vocalist from NY, NY, Bliss. The production instantly snatches your attention with sound combinations and melodies that catch you off guard, but still leave you wondering where you’ll be taken next. Her faintly raspy, warm voice reminds me of Macy Grey (with a name plate chain, a hoodie, more attitude, and a 2 finger ring), and the off the wall production reminds me of a more organic M.I.A or Santigold.
