He recorded his debut EP ‘Flicker’ after moving from Burnley in UK to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The EP features 6 softly sungen songs and can be listened above. Listen closely to not miss out on the interesting background effects like the glockenspiel getting louder and louder at the end of ‘Flicker’.

Although her music “arrangements” are very simple (just her voice and an ukulele), she still manages to write beautiful, emotional songs. Her first album “Rain Chilled” is coming soon! So stay tuned.

Andrew Figueroa Chiang and the Blazing Rays of the Sun

Use the double arrows to go through the tracklist.

On their self-named debut, Andrew Figueroa Chiang and the Blazing Rays of the Sun (wow, what a long band name!) from Los Angeles play fresh sounding soul pop. Andrew Figueroa’s sweet and soft voice fits in perfectly in with the acoustic arrangements. With only 5 songs their album is more “art on a beer mat” than a huge masterwork, but that is what makes it interesting  in my opinion. While some songs procude a nostalgic, campfire like atmosphere, others sound very happy and upbeat. If you love acoustic arrangements and this singer-songwriter feeling, you really should give it a try.
