Momajay releases new album ‘Singularity’

The songwriter and performer of original acoustic guitar music known as Momajay has released his latest official album, “Singularity.” The album contains seven new Momajay tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Pretty, mellow, and softly intellectual, “Singularity” stands as evidence that not only does instrumental songwriting still pack a punch in 2019, but also that the UK still boasts some of the best.

England’s Momajay cites as main artistic influences a broad variety of geniuses, including Fleetwood Mac, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Elvis Presley, Amadeus Mozart, John Williams, and flamenco music. Momajay’s own sound has little in common with these except for an ear for tone and the ability to write chord progressions which narrate stories without the need for lyric singing. With an emphasis on imagination and sonic dreamscapes, “Singularity” by Momajay has a little something for every listener.

Inscrutably, the titles of Momajay’s new songs take after the names of elements necessary for a type-II supernova: hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium, boron, carbon, and nitrogen. This artistic decision on “Singularity” is consistent with the subtly complex cover art for the record – which in turn is likewise consistent with the fractal-esque complexity of the music.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of his new album, Momajay writes, “I hope this album will be thought provoking, stirring up different emotions for different listeners. The whole album was recorded in one take to keep it as pure as possible with minimal editing. Very little thought, just channeling the emotion I was feeling at the time.”

For as long as I can remember I have had music in my life. Listening and dancing to all kinds of music from very young age. Started playing musical instruments, mostly guitar from age of six. Started writing and recording age 19.”

Momajay is the stage name of veteran music producer James Willis. His popular “Rainbows from Space Ultimate Edition” 2018 release put him on the global map where he’s stayed ever since.

Though I’ve been recording since the late ’90s,” Willis writes, “I only started to take my sounds seriously in 2017 when I released an EP, ‘Momajay and the Rebellion,’ through a label called Amuse.”

His first albums Dark Illusion pts 1&2 was recorded back in 2002 but not released until 2017. Now his music is released under his own label Momajay Productions. In 2005 he stopped recording and went into electrical engineering for the railway. After a long 10 years travelling the U.K. working as a signalling engineer he found his passion for producing again and shortly moved back to Cornwall to concentrate on his music career.

In September 2017 he released his first album Momajay and the Rebellion from a collection of tracks he’d recorded between 2012 & 2017. Two years later he has a string of tracks covering multiple genres. From tech trance, downtempo, ambient, experimental and classic acoustic guitar.

His passion for recording and music production is never ending and here to stay.

Maybesoon release new official video ‘Everfall’

The electropop duo known as Maybesoon has released their latest official video, “Everfall.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Hill Street Records record label. A joint effort exhibiting drama, songwriting, stage direction and precise studio production, “Everfall” presents Maybesoon as a visual music project fans of any art form can appreciate. See below for link to “Everfall,” the official video.

Maybesoon (stylized maybesoon) are recording/visual artist Jayme Woj and producer Alan Bukowiecki. They cite as main musical influences Bjork, Pet Shop Boys, Robyn, Radiohead, Erasure, and Swedish artist Jonna Lee. Maybesoon’s own sound on “Everfall” takes elements from each of these and adds many fresh and unique elements for a melange all their own.

The official video for “Everfall” has a coherent character from start to finish exhibiting all the duo’s talents – which is to say, there’s a lot of art packed in there.

We are currently creating a series of singles and music videos that fuse electronic music with body paint and new emerging technologies to give our fans unique audiovisual experiences,” write Maybesoon in their current official bio.

This amalgam of artistry makes plenty of sense, considering the pedigree of the musicians. Woj and Bukowiecki both come from musical theater, with the former performing as a Hollywood actor, singer, visual artist and stunt performer, the latter as a Broadway musician, conductor and composer.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Everfall,” Maybesoon write, “Everfall was written during a time when frontman Jayme Woj experienced the loss of multiple family members and close friends in quick succession. He wrote the lyrics about the struggles those closest to him were experiencing as they were all forced to navigate and cope with the loss of their loved ones.”

Writing the lyrics was really my way of trying to make sense of all the different ways people around me were processing their grief,” says Woj. “I never intended to actually put it to music. A few months later … I played a character who was helping his lover move through the stages of grief. Working on the film was a very healing experience for me … After we finished the film I wanted to honor both the loved ones I lost and the character I played who helped me cope, so Alan and I put the lyrics to music.”

The full, in-depth interview may be read at the band’s official website (link provided below).

Everfall” represents the sophomore release from Maybesoon, their debut being “Reverie,” also on Hill Street. It appeared in summer 2019.

J.S. Tolar releases new alt-prog album ‘Dark Eternal Future’

The alternative prog-rock artist known as J.S. Tolar has released his latest official full-length album, “Dark Eternal Future.” The LP contains 13 original J.S. Tolar tracks for an approximate total listening time of over an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Project M.E.L. record label. Evocative, carefully written, and charged with surgically precise studio production, “Dark Eternal Future” brings J.S. Tolar in a darkly pleasant package fans of any rock genre can get behind.

Virginia’s J.S. Tolar cites as main artistic influences Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Katatonia, TesseracT, The Pineapple Thief, and Anathema. Fans of groups like Tool, Opeth, Blackfield, Dream Theater or even King Crimson are sure to find plenty to enjoy in “Dark Eternal Future.”

An almost entirely narrative record, “Dark Eternal Future” tells its story with clarity and cohesion. Concept albums often get sneers from pop fans, but J.S. Tolar’s new record manages to be approachable by casual listeners and audiophiles alike.

Asked to describe the meanings of “Dark Eternal Future,” Tolar writes, “It shares the story of The Visionary and his discovery of everlasting life and his brutal act of forcing it onto others. It shares different points of view from those affected and the crumbling world before them.”

J.S. Tolar’s current official bio describes him as “a solo artist who meanders between the rock and metal genres … featuring lashings of progressive influence.” It also mentions his penchant for drawing from “other dark multimedia projects, with the psychological horror video game, ‘Silent Hill,’ also playing a pivotal role in how he injects anxiety-inducing atmosphere into his projects.” His music has elsewhere been called a “canvas for the dark, cerebral energy that lays dormant within his mind until it is transcribed to notes and melodies.”

The man, himself, has said music is his “solace” and “guide for finding a way out of hard life events.”

I’ve always found that music has a profound ability to offer perspective and hope to an otherwise dreary situation,” Tolar says of this.

J.S. Tolar also works in a project fronted by Tess Savigear called Visions of Nell who have a release expected sometime in 2020.
