radioairplay.com independent new music



Peter Lewis - Tears of Havana
World, Contemporary, Smooth
Maryland, Netherlands




Overall Impression: With a hot Latin flair, Tears of Havana by Peter Lewis dances its way onto the airwaves. This new instrumental track moves confidently at a moderate tempo and fits well in the Latin and World Music genres. Missing no opportunity, the trumpet captures the spotlight with the melody and rings loudly and proudly. Peter Lewis makes sure the melody is catchy, simple, and spicy enough to stick with the listener. Fans of Lewis's work will have come to expect this, as it is quickly becoming a signature part of his sound. The rhythm section holds down a stellar groove, and allows both the flute and trumpet to have their moments on center stage. As the tune progresses, a gradual build up captivates and convinces the listener to move and dance. With the release of Tears of Havana, Peter Lewis stretches his artistry into new territory and does so quite effectively.


Strongest Point(s): Many pieces need to align for an instrumental track to really work. Fortunately, Peter Lewis has found these pieces and put them in the right places. The groove is stylish and endlessly intriguing. There are always little fills and musical moments of interest at the right times. The melody is simple and very effective. It doesn't have any fanciful musings, but the Latin sound is so prominent that they are not necessary. Overall, there is a very nice balance between melody and groove in Tears of Havana.


Target Audience Appeal: Fans of Latin instrumental music and World Music will dig Tears of Havana by Peter Lewis.


Artist target suggestions: Santana, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Manu Chao, Gipsy Kings, Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, D.S. Wilson, Derrick Sena, Oscar De Fontana, Bebel Gilberto, Jose Feliciano, Antonio Carlos Jobim

SONG REVIEW 🎵📝 David Chutby - Recognition



radioairplay.com independent new music



David Chutby - Recognition
Rock, Pop Rock, Country Rock
Utrecht, Netherlands




Overall Impression: Both terrifically catchy and crammed full of melody, David Chutby's brilliantly crafted alternative pop-rocker "Recognition" is a well-performed and very well-produced piece of songwriting that places a firm emphasis on its strong lyrical theme and exciting arrangement. Led by David's strong vocal performance, "Recognition" is an invigorating track that fuses driving rhythms with compelling textures and invigorating melodic elements, all the while effectively conveying a strong message through its inspired lyrics that explores the importance of perseverance and self-belief, and like all artists that aspire to take their creativity further by means of self-determination and positive-thought, David Chutby is a shining example of what following your ambition and having a clear goal can achieve and that it's never too late to pursue your passion.


Strongest Point(s): This is certainly an exciting and well-formulated arrangement that is not only filled with great detail and refinement regarding its effective use of layering, but the track's varied instrumentation and the way in which their timbral variety helps provide some excellent contrast and definition between the song's various sections ensure the arrangement feels continually fresh throughout. Textural changes have always been a great way to provide a piece of writing with a feeling of contour and the way in which David fully utilizes the full breadth of the mix as well as the song's rich tonal qualities help to provide some brilliant moments throughout that not only helps to capture the imagination of the listener but keep them well and firmly hooked on each and every melody line and rhythmic hook. Whether it'd be the way subtle reverse guitar and moments of feedback are used to expand the sonic palette of the track or the intriguing way in which the harmony takes some interesting twists and turns, allowing for some particularly interesting vocal ground to be covered, "Recognition" is chock full of inspired ideas that will keep listeners busy.


Target Audience Appeal: I can certainly see "Recognition" appealing to lovers of alternative pop-rock styles.


Artist target suggestions: Daughtry, Kings of Leon, R.E.M., Stereophonics, Foo Fighters, Bryan Adams, U2, Incubus, Chris Cornell, Gin Blossoms, Fuel, The Killers

SONG REVIEW 🎵📝 Collo - Burnt



radioairplay.com independent new music



Collo - Burnt
Rock, Alt. Rock, Indie Rock
Melbourne, Australia




Overall Impression: If there's one thing I can always be certain about, it's that I know I'm always going to be in for a good time when it comes to a Collo tune. A versatile writer and producer, Collo always manages to cook up a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding listening experience that sounds both sonically interesting and musically exciting. This time around Collo has cooked up a big-sounding southern flavored rocker that's rich in riffs and bursting with enough sing-along hooks that will leave audiences reaching for the repeat button repeatedly.


Strongest Point(s): As with any bombastic southern fueled rock track, its the performances that really help to capture the spirit and sense of vigor that the genre is renowned for, and from the attention-grabbing lead vocal performance to the superbly arranged backing that accompanies, there's a deep sense of accomplishment and personality woven into the performances that not only heightens the effectiveness of the writing tenfold, but helps to inject that essential spark of energy needed to really pull listeners in. As with every Collo produced tune, there's always a great amount of detail given to the arrangement, not only ensuring it flows brilliantly, but that its filled with some excellent interplay between its various elements. Examples of this include the way the opening synth melody is brought back in the second half of the verse sections in order to create a stronger feeling of momentum towards the chorus, as well as the clever use of the repeated guitar phrase that's also found in the intro, creating a feeling of cohesion in the writing that nicely tightens up the arrangement and provides the listener with a great deal of memorable hooks to easily connect with.


Target Audience Appeal: This is definitely one for the southern rock lovers and fans of this particular style will certainly have a great time with "Burnt".


Artist target suggestions: The Cadillac Three, The Glorious Sons, Dirty Honey, Brother Cane, The Steel Woods, Blackberry Smoke, Bishop Gunn, A Thousand Horses, The Marcus King Band
