The Talented Reggae/Hip Hop Musician From Jamaica Has Released His Anticipated Sophomore Album, A Move Which Will Thrill His Fans Around The World

No Phear recently released his new album, marking a huge stage in the career of the versatile reggae/hip hop singer-songwriter. No Phear, who hails from St. Ann, Jamaica, has released his second solo project and is now promoting the album to build upon his fan base and introduce his music to more people than ever.

The Talented Reggae/Hip Hop Musician From Jamaica Has Released His Anticipated Sophomore Album, A Move Which Will Thrill His Fans Around The World

The album, I Stand Alone , consists of sixteen original songs from No Phear, each providing a combination of contemporary driving beats, resonant vocals and inspired lyrics. The rhythmic undercurrent bears testament to a modern interpretation of reggae , and the music is accentuated throughout with elements of dancehall and hip hop.

For this reason, his preference for unconventional beats has been enhanced by his ability to blend the essence of reggae/dancehall with a modern urban note flavored by rap and hip hop.

No Phear said of his work, “Since going solo, my style has developed, and I’ve incorporated other sounds and genres which have all made their way into I Stand Alone . The album is a reflection of my influences over the years and the changes that I’ve experienced as an artist.”

Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young Tribute Band Marrakesh Express Masters Intricate Harmonies, 60s Vibe

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of tribute bands playing the music of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, U2, and the other monsters of rock. But Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young? Next to none.

Arguably the biggest band in the world in the late-60s after the demise of the Beatles, the songs of CSNY are remarkably hard to replicate, especially the intricate 3- and 4-part harmonies that made the group international superstars. But Marrakesh Express has managed to accomplish just that.

Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young Tribute Band Marrakesh Express Masters Intricate Harmonies, 60s Vibe In addition to the vocal abilities of the four Marrakesh Express singers, the band also looks the part: youthful musicians with an onstage hippie vibe that gives their performances street cred and authenticity. The combination of the beautiful, cascading harmonies and the late-60s visual makes Marrakesh Express a rare and unique tribute to a band that was the “voice of a generation” in one of history’s – and music’s – most explosive periods.

“We really seem to have hit a nerve with this project,” said band manager Mike Kucic. “Every concert has been extremely well attended and received. The music of CSNY was more than just a soundtrack to the 60s. It spoke for a generation of people. We’ve had people crying during our performances, remembering the 60s and either being nostalgic or still feeling the angst that was prevalent in those days. We take these emotions seriously.”

The band primarily performs at festivals and theaters, and is excited to bring the well-known songs of CSNY to younger fans with an interest, as well as older fans who crave the nostalgic aspect.

“The age diversity of our crowds is fantastic,” said Kucic. “Young people today have a real interest in the 60s, and more mature fans want to relive the emotions of the time. A Marrakesh Express concert helps them do that.”

The band has performed at a number of large events, including a headlining performance at the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock tribute concert in August 2009. This year, they are hoping to book additional festivals and venues throughout the U.S., and perhaps abroad.

“We’re a crowd-pleaser,” said Kucic. “The band has a lot of fun onstage and the audience senses that. And they join in right along with us.”

A Personalized Easter Bunny Coloring Page For Your Child For Free! Handcrafted, Straight From Cottontail Lane By The Easter Bunny Himself!

The sky is blue and flowers are blooming everywhere. Tiny green buds are visible on tree branches and birds are singing beautiful songs. Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner. Down on Cottontail Lane, the Easter Bunny is preparing for the big day. This Easter, he wanted to do something extra special for all the children of the world. Easter was getting closer and he still had only mediocre ideas. The same old traditional gifts were just not going to cut it. A few months ago, the Easter Bunny created the Easter Bunny letter, a personalized letter from the Easter Bunny to each child. Confirmed by his survey, parents all agreed that children loved opening a “real” letter from the Easter Bunny. The purpose was not to top this idea but to send an extra special gift in addition to the personalized Easter Bunny Letter.

The Easter Bunny quickly realized it was time to get to work. He began thumping his big white rabbit foot and scratching between his long white ears. The Easter Bunny knew he needed to gather information from parents in order to create such a wonderful surprise for the children. He conducted a survey, which revealed that children enjoyed a very simple pleasure…they loved to color. Now the Easter Bunny was very excited! He finally he had reliable information to create the perfect gift. He immediately started to construct coloring pages for all the children. The Easter Bunny drew many different pictures of himself participating in exciting Easter activities. He then personalized each page for a particular child. The child’s name and a very personal message we inserted into the drawing he created. Each page is left uncolored so that the children could color it and make it their very own.

Visitors to the unique site are able to browse and listen to music genres, enter their preferred price, date and venue, with the enquiry sent straight to the band to speed up the booking process.

Scotland’s major venues and organisations, including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, RBS and Universal have benefited from Freak Music’s professionalism in presenting niche bands from in and outside the UK.
