Austin Mahone and Jamie Dee by Ian Zwick

Austin Mahone “Say Something” and Jamie Dee “Tip Toes”
Music Review
“Say something” by Austin Mahone is the definition of today’s music, party addictive beats accompanying this Justin Bieber/Drake type voice make this song an immediate hit. A weird combination but it works in a way that gives a fresh new look at today’s up in coming artists. The song to sum it up is about a teenager who has eyes for that special girl, a common theme in recent years. Justin Mahone is quite new with only 2 confirmed songs the other being “11:11”. “Say Something” is the kind of song where you walk into a room and when it comes on, it becomes a party. Its got a vibe that makes you want to dance, although my only complaint is that the lyrics could have been touched up. Overall Austin Mahone’s hit song “Say something” is definitely an example of a new era type song and I hope we get more similar to this song soon. Here’s a link Austin’s video.

When I first started listening to Jamie Dee’s single “Tip Toes” the thing I tried to do most was figure out whom she sounds like, who she is reminiscent to, and I concluded that she is like no one I have heard in a while. Her song is about a girl who likes a guy who has her on her “tip toes”. I personally had mixed feelings for the song itself, although I love Jamie Dee’s voice. Her song has a dance type beat to it and will definitely get you in the mood to, but at the same time I felt like the song was kind of relaxing which is strange. I also found Jamie’s Youtube channel which has most of her songs and covers. I hope to see more from her in the future and a song that really captures her beauty inside and out, and her amazing voice and range.

Miami’s Own Cris Cab

Cris Cab Interview by Rachel Barrick

Cris Cab, a 17 year old singer/musician from Miami, Florida is on the verge of becoming one of the next big artists in the music world. He is an extremely talented young musician with a positive, “it’s all good” attitude toward life and his music. Cris’ inspiration came to him at a very young age, as music always just came naturally to him. Since he was young, he was always surrounded with music, and it became a natural tendency of his to have music play a major role in his life. Music has always been a passion of his, and performing and producing it is all he has ever wanted to do

. Cris’ major influences in music include artists such as Bob Marley and John Mayer, along with more modern, hip-hop artists Jay-Z and Drake. His favorite genre of music is reggae, which can be heard in much of his own original music. Cris’ music is incredibly meaningful, portraying his immense talents and positive ideals, and is the type of music that can most definitely be enjoyed by everyone. Cris writes and produces his own original music, along with recording a few cover albums in order to draw in listeners and expose them to his music. His musical talents, however, are not limited to singing, playing guitar, and producing. Cris, as he put it, plays a “smorgasbord of instruments” as well. Cris’ ultimate goal as an artist is mainly to expose people to good music, and to show them what has given him his love of music and formed his passion for it. In reaching this goal, he hopes that being a musician and performing his music will be a part of his life forever. Cris begins his East Coast tour on June 7th, 2011; the same day on which his debut album, “Foreword” will be released.

Some of Cris’ songs on this album include “Good Girls” and “No Hatred”. Fans can get his music on iTunes, and can listen to it on blogs, and Facebook. Everyone can check out Cris and his music on his website CrisCab.com, his Facebook page, Cris Cab Music, or on Twitter at Cris Cab Music as well.
