Kais – Star In a Jar

We’re a bit late to this one, but as the saying goes – ‘Better late than never!’

“Star In a Jar” is the uncompromising, emotionally charged album from the passionately talented, Vancouver based, singer-songwriter Kais.

Although this cleverly written album was released in 2013, its content is as relevant as ever. Peaking at 12 tracks, you’ll find that Star In a Jar is a great listen for all music lovers… Sticking to matters close to his heart, Kais has managed to put together an incredibly meaningful album which touches upon many sensitive subjects including war and saving the planet!

The production is very neat and the overall sound is refined and melodic, while Kais vocals and delivery are every bit as good as the artists he aspires to be. Quite reminiscent of contemporary indie rock pioneers Oasis, Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters, Rob Thomas and The Verve – Kais could give all of these a run for their money when it comes to creativity and originality.

Every single track in the album stands out as a masterpiece, as the singer incorporate various styles into this release, including alternative, indie, reggae and blues, which in turn provide an impressive depth and give the album an overall rich and varied sound.

This is my kind of rock music. “Star In A Jar” is expansive, fluid and as soulful as it gets. Laced with beautiful poetry and polished sounds, it is without a doubt a super accomplished body of work which deserves way more recognition than it currently has!

Give it a listen below and show some love guys! Kais is the real deal.

 

Archi – Run

“Run” is the impressive new release from the self confessed music lover Archi, who’s been busy perfecting and polishing his craft for the whole world to enjoy!

With so much generic rap/rnb music out there it’s getting harder and harder to stand out these days, so the first thing that strikes you when you press that play button is the single’s beat, which hits you like a ton of bricks to the face, quickly followed by Archi’s smooth and witty vocal delivery.

The artist’s talent and uniqueness is evident, and perhaps, it is something that runs in his family as the Archi explains – “Growing up in a family household with my dad being a former Reggae band artist, music was always around me”.

Having released his first ever song “Whatchu Say” earlier this year, Archi has already raked up an impressive number of plays on Soundcloud, highlighting his potential for stardom, even though there is still some room for improvement as an artist’s growth is ultimately the process that leads to breakthrough success.

For me personally, “Run” is definitely the artist’s best work to date out of his current catalogue on Soundcloud, which shows that Archi is definitely on the right track as he seems to be getting better and better with each track he releases.

With another single in the pipeline to be released soon, Archi is setting himself up for a productive and prosperous 2017, and while “Run” is ambitious, sophisticated and well rounded, it is also important to note that he’s literally just started recording this year… so bearing this in mind, Archi is actually better than you might think. No doubt, the boy got skills to pay the bills!
