CD Review: Lee Brice – I Don’t Dance

Lee Brice – I Don’t Dance
I Don’t Dance, No Better Than This, Show You Off Tonight, Always The Only One, Good Man, Drinking Class, That Don't Sound Like You, Girls In Bikinis, Sirens, Somebody’s Been Drinking, Hard To Figure Out, My Carolina, Panama City, More My Style, Closer, Whiskey Used To Burn

Lee Brice has the penchant of charting his course towards drawing approving whoops from his fans.  His sound is equal parts ballads, pop and rock with country thrown in.  His music is rooted in the traditional way, but has a modern production that keeps them grooving in the modern times.  He has given us a new country landscape in which to wander.

He splices together wistful pop tune with cool, romantic rhythms in “I Don’t Dance”.  It’s a refreshing song that simply builds his inspirations from the ground up.  It’s a nice song about a man who takes a plunge when he finds the right woman and creating great moments together.  Indeed, love is very powerful.  You know it when you feel it.  It’s the kind of love that truly nourishes, cares, forgives and gives.  Surely that’s the time to dedicate one’s life to another individual.  Lee Brice co-wrote this song with Dallas Davidson.

Brice demonstrates his vocal color and skill in “Always The Only One”, belting out his full voice.  Brice co-wrote this single with Kyle Jacobs, and Joe Don Rooney.  It adds something significant to the ruminations about the authentic reality that true love exist.   It opens quietly then pushing it to mid-tempo that builds gradually then explodes into a rock sound.

With some creativity, “Good Man” attracts thousands of fans.  It goes without saying that these are the verses and hooks that brought listeners together:  “I'll climb your tower, slay your dragons, fight your battles girl.  I’ll take a bullet for ya.  I’ll take on the whole world.  Don’t even worry bout it. I like it yeah, I gotcha girl.”  It’s a fantastic near rap-rock song with captivating violin sound and an irresistible playfulness of the guitar strings.

The highlight, “Hard to Figure Out” leaves us with an inspiring way of reminding  everyone to be grateful for what we have.  It teaches us the value of approaching a difficult situation from a place of gratitude.   The first chorus goes, “She said "just thank God for everything you've got.  I felt so stupid being mad. After seeing her so sad, I need to check my heart.  I need to watch my mouth.  Have a little more faith.  A little less doubt, it ain't that hard to figure out.”  The drum loops allow us to rhytmatize our attitude from being self-centered to being others-centered.  A thumbs up to Brice and his co-writers Joe Leathers and Nicole Witt on this one. So, whether you’re in the mood for a long drive or quite evening with the family or friends, get a taste of what Lee Brice is offering in this album.

Tickets to the February 8 Event On Sale Now; More Artists To Be Announced in the Coming Weeks NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 12, 2016) – Joining the star-studded tribute to Randy Travis on February 8, 2017, will be Wynonna, Jeff Foxworthy, Alison Krauss, Ben Haggard, Neal McCoy and Phil Vassar. Tickets for the highly anticipated event are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Randy Travis Foundation; a 501(c)3 non-profit that raises money for stroke research and rehabilitation.

"Randy and Mary Travis and I are extremely overwhelmed with the artists that are lending their talents for this special night. Once they found out that Randy needed help to fund the Randy Travis Foundation everyone started calling. Funds going into the foundation will help fund numerous stroke research and rehabilitation programs. This will only be one night, one time, and one place and will never happen again. Almost 30 artists have confirmed so far. They will perform with Randy’s band as well as join Randy in his first public performance since his life-altering stroke. We are prepared for there not to be a dry eye in the house," said producer of the event and Travis’ manager, Tony Conway of Conway Entertainment Group/Ontourage Management.

In October, Randy Travis was officially inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame. The multi-platinum country giant suffered a massive stroke in 2013 and has since made miraculous strides towards recovery. He recently sang “Amazing Grace” at his Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony as well as the tagline to his iconic “Forever and Ever, Amen” at the 2016 CMA Awards in November alongside numerous country legends and stars.

ED SHEERAN

Am vergangenen Freitag veröffentlichte Ed Sheeran mit "Castle On The Hill" und "Shape Of You" gleich zwei Singles, mit denen er einmal mehr alle Rekorde bricht: Beide Songs belegen aktuell die Plätze #1 und #2 der deutschen Spotify-/iTunes-/Apple Music-Charts und brachen den Spotify-Rekord für die meisten Streams innerhalb von 24 Stunden nach Erscheinen.
Mit fast 8 Mio. Streams an einem Tag entthronte "Shape Of You" sogar Adeles "Hello"! Insgesamt steht der internationale Superstar mit einer der beiden Nummern in über 118 Ländern an der Spitze der iTunes-Charts. Auch die Lyric-Videos zu "Castle On The Hill" und "Shape Of You" generierten zusammen bereits 55 Mio. Views.
Doch damit nicht genug: Heute kündigte Ed Sheeran sein drittes Studioalbum "÷" ("Divide" ausgesprochen) an, das am 03.03. veröffentlicht wird und ab dem 13.01. vorbestellbar ist.

BEBE REXHA

Seit Wochen freuen sich Fans auf ihr im Frühjahr erscheinendes Debütalbum "All Your Fault". Nachdem Bebe Rexha 2016 als Gastsängerin, Co-Writerin, Moderatorin der MTV EMAs sowie mit eigenen Singles in allen Belangen überzeugte, fragte sich der angesagte Musikblog Idolator kürzlich zurecht, ob Bebe Rexha das am ungeduldigsten erwartete Album des Jahres hat?
Um die Wartezeit auf den neuen Longplayer zu verkürzen, veröffentlichte Bebe Rexha letzte Woche das Musikvideo zu ihrer aktuellen Single "I Got You" (iTunes Platz #39), in dem die 27-jährige New Yorkerin die Wüste unsicher macht - hier zu sehen.
"All Your Fault" ist musikalisch inspiriert von Vorreitern der Jahrtausendwende wie Destiny's Child, Aaliyah oder Timbaland und Bebe kündigt an, darauf "sexyer als je zuvor zu werden".

THE REGRETTES

In ihrer Heimatstadt Los Angeles eroberte die vierköpfige Punkband die Herzen der Rockszene im Sturm. Ihre hochgradig ansteckenden Tracks vereinen die Attitüde einer Courtney Barrett oder Karen O mit einer Pop-Ästhetik, die an die 50er-/60er-Jahre erinnert.
Am morgigen Freitag erscheint ihr vielversprechendes Debütalbum "Feel Your Feelings Fool". Darauf zeigen The Regrettes den Stinkefinger, tragen ihr Herz auf der Zunge und lassen ihren Gefühlen und Instrumenten freien Lauf.
"Ich habe keine Angst davor, dass Leute über mich urteilen, das schert mich nicht. Ich gebe einen Scheiß darauf, ob jemand mag, was ich zu sagen habe. [...] Wenn die Leute sich mit der Musik indentifizieren können, dann ist es das wert", betont Frontfrau Lydia Night.

USS

"Aufgeklärter Irrsinn" , so beschreibt das aus Toronto stammende Dance-Duo USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker) sein diesen Freitag erscheinendes, acht Track starkes Album "New World Alphabet", das davon handelt, sein Leben in die eigene Hand zu nehmen - allem voran die erste Single "Work Shoes".
Hierzulande überzeugten Ashley Buchholz (Vocals/Gitarre) und sein Hypeman Jason Parsons (Turntables) zuletzt mit ihrem in Kanada Gold-prämierten Hit "Yin Yang", aus ihrem 2014 erschienenen Durchbruchs-Album "Advanced Basics".
Das von Thomas "Tawgs2 Salter (u.a. LIGHTS, Josh Groban, Walk Off The Earth) produzierte. "New World Alphabet" bietet ein umfangreiches Hörerlebnis, von absoluten Party-Jams bis hin zu reflektierteren Momenten - so, wie sie das Leben eben schreibt.

TOUR DER WOCHE

Image Label
Image Label
Mit "i hate u, i love u" (feat. Olivia O'Brien) landete der 22-jährige, aus L.A. stammende Urban Pop Shooting-Star vor etwa einem Jahr via SoundCloud einen regelrechten Smash-Hit. Inzwischen zählt der Song über 434 Mio. Spotify-Streams, 199 Mio. YouTube-Views und erhielt mehrere Gold- und Platin-Auszeichnungen rund um den Globus.
Sein genreübergreifender Hybrid-Sound aus Urban Pop und Hiphop samt einer Prise Elektro trifft spürbar den Nerv der Zeit und verpackt in bittersüßen Songs die eigensinnige Gefühlswelt einer ganzen Generation. So auch die eindringliche Ballade " Home" (feat. Johnny Yukon) - ein zeitloses Plädoyer für Zusammenhalt, Hoffnung und Familie als solches.
Im Frühjahr kommt Garrett Nash, alias gnash, neben einer großangelegten US-Tournee auch für drei Solo-Shows nach Deutschland:
04.03. Hamburg, Kleiner Donner
08.03. Köln, Yuca
10.03. Berlin, Privatclub
