New Artist Alert – Von Tae’ unleashes ‘Broken Boundaries of Existence’

It is known that there is a lack of authenticity in the musical landscape today. Artists and producers are typically manufactured and image-driven for popularity and fame. However, there is a newcomer who plans to blow away the competition with his distinctive style and unique skills.

Von Tae’ is a gifted singer, songwriter, dancer, and entertainer who has released his debut promo project, Broken Boundaries of Existence, which garnered much recognition and success since its initial release in 2011. With its mixture of upbeat dance jams and honest, soul-bearing anthems, Broken Boundaries of Existence proves to be a labor of love for the artist behind its music, messages, and statements.

Just from hearing it for the first time, there is nothing more breathtaking than Von Tae’ exploring the peaks and valleys of love, or even lamenting on living life to the fullest, and being inspired in this jaded world. Out of all of the subjects he touches on throughout the project, positivity and affirmation are among the most evident.

Songs such as the party-laden “We Gon’ Shut It Down” and motivating “Top of the World” share a common thread, in which Von Tae’ boldly declares his own personal liberation, while inspiring others to follow their own keys to freedom. The most personal track, “Been There Too” is as heartbreaking as it is triumphant, where the artist puts all of his trials and tribulations on the table and searches for salvation. It is this downbeat, yet stunning moment where Von Tae’ is at his most vulnerable, offering an honest glimpse into the roots of his talent and ambition, while giving the listener an abundance of hope as well.

The project also boasts a couple of sensual moments, that finds Von Tae’ exploring the highs and lows of relationships. As much as Existence is a conscious statement on personal liberation, it is also a conceptual statement on love, in all of its facets. Songs such as “Yea We Chillin’,” “Only One,” and “Torn Into Pieces” all amazingly paint a portrait of desire, lost love, and regained love. Smartly written and hard-hitting, “Another Pretty Face” is Von Tae’ at his most confessional, whipping out all of the stops on a failed relationship and declaring his progression from it.

Honest, vulnerable, freewheeling, and invigorating, Broken Boundaries of Existence is a triumphant rollercoaster that Von Tae’ has allowed listeners to venture, as it speaks volumes to who the man is and gives us the inspiration to look in the mirror to reveal who we really are. Musically and lyrically, it is a compelling testament to his talents and it proves that the journey will not end here anytime soon.

Musician Henry Cooper brings back ‘real’ music, works on new LP

Multi-instrumentalist Henry Cooper is on his way to break musical ground with a new album, “The Best of Me (Part 2),” which is rooted in his various musical influences and exquisite artistry.

With heavy enthusiasm, Cooper considers his sophomore album to be a testament of real musicianship and ambition that is absent in the musical landscape today.

“The reason why I title it ‘The Best of Me’ is because it’s just all of me playing certain songs, based on my own influences,” he says. “I just want to give something back and express to people what real music is all about.”

The Georgia native says that his musical influences are widely diverse, ranging from jazz, R&B, classical, and gospel. He cites his family as one of his biggest influences, as they introduced him to music through different phases of his life.

“My top influences were Marvin Gaye, Grover Washington, Jr., Chuck Mangoine, Quincy Jones, Maynard Ferguson, Michael Jackson, and some others” he says. “So I mainly was involved in a lot of groups that I was inspired by.”

In addition to working on his own music, Cooper has contributed music for other artists. He says that he has worked with many gospel artists, most notably Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary.

Cooper also has a background for composing, arranging, and producing music and has been known for expressing his disappointment of the lack of musicianship in music today.

“You see people these days [who] haven’t played instruments in years or never played an instrument,” he says. “It all comes about trying, it all comes with how to do this stuff … you see most people today [who] never played an instrument, never read music, or never went to school.”

Cooper added that his new album will be released later this year, and his previous works are now available on Soundcloud and YouTube.
