Sleep Deprived Music Review: Witch Prophet

Last year, Witch Prophet released The Golden Octave. Lucky for me that YouTube still recommends decent videos because that is how I heard of Witch Prophet. Call it fate or whatever but it was meant to be.

The music of Witch Prophet is relaxing and empowering. When you listen to them, you will hear R & B, jazz and amazing beats. My favorite songs on the album are “Love Me” and “Listen.”

Some people compare Witch Prophet to Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. Maybe they have been influenced by neo-soul singers but they make every song their own. It’s hard to compare them to anyone when they are unconventional and independent.

 

Witch Prophet is based in Toronto. The group includes Ayo Leilani and DJ Sun Sun.

I want to listen to this album while out riding my bike on a nature trail. It’s upbeat but it won’t distract from the view.

Sleep Deprived Music Spotlight: Leilani Wolfgramm

In my spare time, I’ve been searching for Leilani Wolfgramm. Her style is a mix of Reggae and R&B. Her music is new to me. Her video found its way into the mix while watching the Dirty Heads and Bob Marley Videos. Sometimes YouTube is brilliant.

She has an album, Live Wire, coming out on February 23. Two of the songs have been released but I can’t find very much information about the rest of the album. There was one recent interview with Leilani Wolfgramm on Earmilk.

Her website doesn’t have any information about her at all. It’s like someone bought the domain but didn’t actually customize it. It’s kind of weird. Most musicians have a main website with an abundance of information and links to videos and social media.

So if you’re curious about Leilani Wolfgramm, I’ve included some links that are real and will lead you somewhere.

P.S. I finally found the whole album! I should be a music detective. If only that were a real thing.

P.P.S. Leilani – I know you’re busy. But you deserve a website that your fans can visit. Maybe you could hire someone to fix it?

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Lady Wray

lady-wray-queen-alone-cover

Lady Wray’s Queen Alone came out in 2016 but I just found it today. It’s not a secret that I love old school R&B/soul singers like Chaka Khan. Some singers are real beyond their talent and it shows in their music.

Lady Wray reminds me of all of those chicks from the 70s who really put their heart out there for everyone to hear. There’s also a hint of the Jackson 5 in the music.

She has had some success in the past but due to some minor setbacks, it took awhile to get her career going. It would be a shame to not listen to Lady Wray. So go out and listen to this album, follow her on Twitter, go see her shows. She is worthy of all of your devotion.

Lady Wray is magical.

Confession: #blogtober16 

After blogging for three  years, I don’t have that many secrets left to tell. There is something that I want to tell but then again it could ruin everything. I may be exaggerating again.

Most of the time, I listen to rock and roll music. When my kids are in the car, the music is generally Top 40 – only because it’s light and fluffy. If the music is light and fluffy, then my kids are not so aggressive and angry. Happy kids = Happy mom.

So here it is . . . . every night when I’m driving to work, I listen to the Sweat Hotel with Keith Sweat. It’s old school R & B. It’s intoxicating and I can’t help it. It’s like honey for my ears or something.

No one knows. Not my kids. Not my boyfriend. Not my mother. Nobody. . . . There’s a little Keith Sweat reference for you.

Keith Sweat: Nobody

There’s also a section of the show called “What’s Your Confession?” Coincidence? Possibly.
