MEARA – Blackbird (Spotify)

“When listening to the new single -Blackbird- it reveals its invisible wings, fly away somewhere up high and swings between air flows. Melodic, and also representative of the creativity of -MEARA-.”

“Слушая новый сингл -Blackbird- раскрываешь свои невидимые крылья, улетаешь куда-то вверх, ввысь и вибрируешь там между потоками воздуха. Мелодичное, но от этого не растерявшее свою энергетику творение -MEARA-.”

-Nagamag.com

Life is a dance of shadows and light. MEARA, with stories of passion and power, healing and womanhood, creates the soundtrack. Blessed with synaesthesia, the British/ American songstress was born, literally into a world where music is colour. Her work dances delicately between cinematic, ethereal and indie music. Life’s unfolding stories are told here with a voice that will put a shine on your soul and guide you through the darkness. The tones are pure, the sensation one of stealing a glimpse into heaven.

MEARA has created a sophisticated tale of independence, told as a mother, a storyteller and a friend to our vulnerabilities. Flying from the ashes, the smoke still warm on her wings, MEARA has a voice like no other. She sings with the purpose of an addict and the touch of a maestro. Cinematic and vast like the call of a bird, suddenly free from its cage, her music will lift you away while her writing, her vision and her stories will keep you afloat in a space of light and empathy where your own voice can now be heard.

"Blackbird", the first in a string of singles culminating in an album, speaks of awakening, reconnection and embracing the dark like a long-lost friend. The artist confides “I’ve always sung other people’s music yet dreamed of writing my own. I wanted to step out of that box. I want to inspire people to discover their own story and pursue their dreams. Our journeys are never a straight line.” The stunning music video was filmed at the historic Holloway Sanitorium (a former sanitorium which was also used as a location for Inspector Morse). It’s a symbolic location for the song as it represents the artist’s subconscious mind, in which she wakes up and finds “Blackbird” there.

While the seeds of Florence and the Machine, Aurora and Lana Del Rey, and many other musical icons are evident in their influence, the flowers that have bloomed are all MEARA. MEARA’s vocal range will send shivers down your spine, while bold, thumping drum and soaring string arrangements awaken a feeling deep inside yourself. Both soft and threatening, warm and cold, earthy and digital MEARA brings her influences of baroque pop and folk into the present and gives an edgy, futuristic twist, taking the listener on a journey.

MEARA's creativity will shock you in its finesse and take your hand with a powerful grip wrapped in a silk glove. This is a music of love, redemption and dreams of light and life.

Written with the collaboration of world-beating talents Norma Jean Martine (known for viral hits “Head Shoulders Knees and Toes” and “When We Were Young" and Max Mostley (Jones, Norma Jean Martine, Tomine Harket).

MEARA has previously performed on Broadway as well as on NBC’s Today Show and at Madison Square Garden. She sings in 7 languages. Unveiling the first chapter to this compelling story, “Blackbird” is set currently available worldwide.

Ramiro Pinheiro | Nasceu Pra Navegar feat. Edi Barcelo (Video)

“-Ramiro Pinheiro- music can be considered refined and elegant. The rhythm of the composition -Nasceu Pra Navegar- manifests itself in the melody and the accompaniment. Cool, emotionally restrained jazz, like the warmest and very gentle human feelings. Enveloping warmth, serenity and peace of mind.”

“Музыку -Ramiro Pinheiro- можно смело назвать утончённой и элегантной. Ритмика композиции -Nasceu Pra Navegar- проявляет себя не в мелодии, а в аккомпанементе. Прохладный, эмоционально сдержанный джаз, вызывает исключительно грациозные и самые светлые человеческие чувства. Обволакивающее тепло, безмятежность и душевный комфорт.”

-Nagamag.com

– “Nasceu Pra Navegar”, the first of four pieces that welcome Pablo Giménez on flute, is an original samba that is worthy of A. C. Jobim. Edi Barcelo’s singing and Crá Rosa’s quiet percussion are major assets as is the leader’s accompanying guitar. Ramiro Pinheiro’s debut album Sentido is highly recommended to any listener having a love for Brazilian jazz. The rich melodies, variety, and top-notch musicianship along with the consistent creativity make this a memorable release. – Reviewed by Scott Yanow, jazz journalist

Ali Cashius Jr is an independent artist from Detroit, MI. His career in music started as a young kid in Southwest Detroit when his childhood best friend challenged him to a rap battle. His friend was only joking, but Ali found himself preparing 24/7 and filling up his school notebooks with rhymes. He was inspired by artist like 2pac and Nas for their abilities to dig deep into their souls, but wanted to add that signature Eminem word play and rhyme schemes into deeper issues that plagued his childhood and community. The lack of financial resources was real issue not only growing up in Detroit, but even as a young adult. "It was a blessing in disguise" as Ali bounced around Atlanta, Maryland, Virginia, and Arizona looking for work to help support his dream. As of today, Ali Cashius Jr has performed along side artist such as Method Man & Redman, Currensy, Dave East, Kevin Gates, Vince Staples, G Perico, Snow Tha Product, Immortal Technique and so many more!

The moon is our longing, our peace, our hope, our home, our place, the person we love, the one who turns nostalgia into a song that heals, the one that motivates us to continue on the road, the one that even though we don’t have luggage rides us on the journey. “

LowDown Mini Reel #3 (Paradise) (Video)
