"Destiny" by Al Sofia (Pop Artist from Illinois(IL))

Talented vocalist Al Sofia shares his love for pop/easy listening music with his latest disc, "Destiny." With hints of Bobby Darin and Michael Buble, Sofia delivers an exceptional disc of both originals and cover songs. The title track "Destiny" shows his knack for creative songwriting and has that Philadelphia soul vibe to it. Although the album does feature some great original work, it is Sofia's covers that really shine through. Taking someone else's music and making it your own is never easy, but Sofia does it with ease on songs such as "You Raise Me Up" (popularized by Josh Groban). There are also some jazzy takes on well known Broadway numbers like "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent and "It's Possible" from Suessical. "Destiny" is a great album for any fan of Hall & Oates or Michael Buble and is well worth listening to.

RadioIndy is pleased to present Chuck Eaton with a GrIndie Award for the CD "One Million Words"

RadioIndy is pleased to present Chuck Eaton with a GrIndie Award for the CD "One Million Words"

"One Million Words" is the excellent easy listening debut thirty years in the making from Brazilian artist Chuck Eaton. This album's theme is love, as Eaton sings twelve original and romantic songs of love and passion, mood-setters written for lovers to listen to together. The entire album is written and performed by Eaton, which includes vocals and piano, guitar, and drum arrangements. These arrangements are solid with well-crafted piano work and terrific guitar solos, and show Eaton's skill in musical layering. Eaton's vocals are unique, sounding like a combination of an easy listening version of Paolo Nutini with traces of solo John Lennon. "One Million Words" is well-produced, and the entire album sounds clean and professional. "Wedding Rings" begins with a nice piano, drum, and guitar arrangement, then moves into a song about falling in love and begging for forgiveness. "Our Love Is Precious" starts with a great electric guitar solo over acoustic guitar and drums, and features more catchy and heartfelt lyrics about falling in love. Overall, "One Million Words" is a great love-themed album well worth the wait. Anyone who enjoys poppy, easy listening songs about love should check out "One Million Words."

"All That I Could Give-New Edition" by David Hansen (Easy Listening Artist from California(CA))

David Hansen's "All That I Could Give-New Edition" is a wonderful piece of music that really delivers to the adult contemporary crowd. Although his background is strongly rooted in jazz music, Hansen throws out more of an adult pop punch on his most recent effort. On the title track "All That I Could Give" screams of classic James Taylor vocal approach and is smooth and silky in style. If you are looking for some soothing jazz then "Love In Three Days" is a good track to check out. It features some very well polished jazz flute riffs and invites you into the artist true musical taste. This CD could easily be spun on any light rock radio station today and is a great listen. Should you find yourself wanting to hear something new and in the musical style of James Taylor or Steve Winwood then "All That I Could Give- New Edition" is a CD you will want to add to your collection.
