‘Got it on my mind everything that imma do so it’s not a possibility or thing I can’t do/ heard through the grapevine that it takes time but can’t afford to waste mine” G-Nerro starts the first verse off in Dim World with a glimpse of light, a mission statement dedicated to his dedication. The opening track ‘Sunbeams’ starts off soulful then takes a sudden surprise turn to more soulful second leg, the optimism in the first half continues but is brought closer to reality with bleak street tales of past trials and tribulations. G-Nerro makes sure to hammer home the mantra ‘nothing is impossible before diving into the dark depths of an environment where succeeding is ‘making it out the trenches’. The world gets dimmer on the 3rd phase of sunbeams. The mood gets melancholy on the final step of this album opener, melodic vocals sung over a heartfelt lofi guitar loop. Rainfall quickly overwhelms the forecast further foreshadowing the following tracks on ‘Dim World’
‘Can’t Fake Your Feelings’ sonically has a vast soundscape, haunting piano keys have multiple vocal samples teetering in and out the track low and distorted or sped up and squirrely. Heavy 808s mark the beginning of the vocals with trap drums and stuttering hi hat patterns ending with the ominous piano loop in an eerie reverse. ‘Yah Yah’ follows and is the perfect combination of club song and street anthem, darkening the mood further in this ‘Dim World’ a caution to haters and naysayers. The title track immediately plays and brings the macro-world to the mainstream covering multiple social topics over a heavy hitting trap beat.
90s era R&B chords layered with modern drums and melodic auto-tune singing bring the optimism back with ‘Never Last’. The final track ‘Crossroads (Outro)’ plays as a victory lap, G-Nerro covers more sounds and topics over 9 songs than some artist do in 19. Soulful production, heavy bass, melodic hooks and memorable lines- the recipe for a classic tape is definitely delivered with perfection on ‘Dim World’.
-Overcoming all obstacles.
The journey of an aspiring artist is naturally littered with road blocks, detours and any other possible hazard. Jessica Shores took this road as an artist but her personal journey had an equal amount of obstacles.
When she was 16, Jessica became paralyzed. She had a surgical procedure called a lamenectomy, and was told that she would not walk again. Daunting enough to her for any regular person let alone an aspiring performer
When she was 18, Jessica was diagnosed with a rare mitochondrial disorder and was told that most people who have it have a life expectancy of approximately 30 years. This disorder primarily affects the brain, nervous system, and muscles, and causes muscle weakness and pain, headaches, seizures, altered consciousness, vision abnormalities, and stroke-like episodes. Jessica would go on to have 15 surgeries due to complications from her condition.
The best artists take setbacks and turn them into fuel, while using these setbacks as ramps to further her dedication she used these as motivation to recover and pursue her craft. Jessica draws inspiration from a myriad of amazing artist: David Bowie, Selena, Chris Cornell, and Gwen Stefani to name a few. The first step of being great is having great taste and an eclectic assortment of influences adds to Jessica Shores’ diverse musical palette.
Her single ‘Monica Lewinsky’ displays her club heavy hip-hop side, with an 808 heavy beat and memorable lyrics like “presidential status- Bill Clinton stlye” this single is still in heavy rotation as the perfect pop tune. Pop isn’t the only avenue Jessica visits, ‘Got The Jack Daniels Blues’ is a soulful departure from her pop singles, steeped in Blues and live instrumentation. Heavy guitar solos and dirty drums are far from the 808s and computerized sounds of her other work. ‘Got The Jack Daniels Blues’ is accompanied by a lush music video showcasing Jessica’s performer side.
More than a musical artist Jessica is a choreographer, model, oil painter and more. Jessica also plays a very popular character on the hit podcast “The Ding Dong Show”, which is part of the DeathSquad podcast network. She has also been interviewed on PlayBoy radio, as well as many other local and national radio shows. She’s also been on the cover of Street Motivation magazine. She is a talent that fans of many genres and areas of art are sure to follow!

MickIsBack’s latest single ‘Just Another Thing’ is a soulful amalgamation of House, Funk, Dance, and Jazz. Each element flawlessly blends into the other, hypnotic vocals breeze throughout the vast sonic soundscape which is periodically visited by the refreshing funk of a saxophone solo dispersed perfectly to add to the catchiness of this tune. The mantra ‘just another thing we go through’ weaves in and out with a trance like delievery that places the hooks of memorability deeper into the listener’s mind. MickIsBack has the perfect dance song for the summer, a special selection of a catchy piano melody, hypnotic lyrics, Jazzy instrumentation and an upbeat dance heavy rhythm.
‘Wait For You’ not only displays dedication and desire but also showcases the same duality in Bmark, the Singer, Songwriter, and Producer from Sweden. His latest dance heavy single doubles with an acoustic version further exemplifying his range and versatility. ‘Wait For You’ has the passion and depth of a classic love song with the unwavering yearning of the artist, ‘I’m waiting for the sky to let you down’ sings Bmark lyrically displaying his commitment and desire, writing which is further amplified in the acoustic version but still fits perfectly over a snare drum crescendo leading into knocking kick drums and a pulsating synth melody. The ability to pull off a single that perfectly doubles with an acoustic version is a rare feat and Bmark manages to have a summer song perfect for the dance floor at the club and also the late night ride home.
