I have a new Musical Mention for your viewing and listening pleasure!
Smooth and soul filling, Christopher Marciano’s song Updown is one to add to your repertoire of music! I felt the longing, a twinge of hopeful chaos, but all of it based in a calm presence of mind. The beat hits in that perfectly satisfying spot, a note pattern that I didn’t know I needed. For his video he included a group of dancers, the Expandablez, who enhanced the artistry of this exceptional song. And to top it off, they did it all with the impressive and kind skill of maintaining the health safety of wearing masks! The music and dance combination is mesmerizing, full of passion and heart that is healing to this broken world right now. Take a look!
With songs like “Runaway”, “Stubborn” and “I’m Just Me”, Pop and R&B Singer-Songwriter Christopher Marciano is no stranger to speaking his mind about self-worth. The importance of promoting Mental Health Awareness and Diversity through his music has been the reason why he continues to not let the pen escape him.
“The moment I found myself avoiding mirrors is the moment I knew something had to change. I needed to take everyone on that journey towards finding Transparency and if I helped just one person along the way, then I’ve done what I needed to do.”
This page is dedicated to giving honorable mentions to music and musicians who leave me captivated. I will periodically be adding new music to the list, introducing and inviting you to participate in the enjoyment!
The first to debut on this page is Coleman Row! Take a look below.
This song really takes you by surprise. With a haunting beginning, the acoustic guitar slowly sets the groundwork, accompanied by an almost a grunge style melody, which builds into a fiddle duet. Impressive harmonies join to meet a chorus that you didn’t know you needed in your life. This unique mashup of folk and metal styles may seem strange, but it’s one that creates absolute magic.
Musicians: Coleman Row
Informed in equal parts by heartfelt folk ballads and anthemic hard rock, Scottish folk duo Coleman Row merges trad fiddle, rocky guitar riffs and soaring vocals. The result is an entrancing sound made intimate as it is all performed by just two musicians. Since their official formation in September of 2019, Coleman Row have been regularly appearing at Open Mics and busking across Glasgow. Most recently, the duo have been writing and releasing new music recorded during lockdown.
