Gerard Emes – Teemo Review

OK. Sit down. Relax. Forget about your day and your to-do lists. Clear your mind and get ready for a slow burn. The music of Gerard Emes is not for the average listener. If you are a frequent listener of your local Top 40 station, this may not be for you. But if you are […]

Knightlife – Field Day

Knightlife seems like a band that gets it. They sound like they’ve all been around studios and venues long enough to know what works and what to avoid. It seems like they all know what sounds they want from their instruments & know how to get them. The same goes for their approach to songwriting & recording. The […]

Patrick Ames – Standard Candles

Patrick Ames is no stranger to the IMP website. We’ve reviewed him and helped him promote a song or two on our podcast. You see, Patrick started doing what he’s doing musically a little late in life. But as you can also see, he’s making up for lost time…big time. I don’t know if Patrick’s […]

Jour Majesty – Album Review

It does not take long to realize that Jour Majesty has something special going. These days, many bands in the country-pop genre seem formulaic and repetitive, with each song a similar variation of singular theme. Not so with Jour Majesty (JM). Although there is a distinctive sound common to all their compositions, partially due to […]

Mandabrat – A Mother’s Pain

MandaBrat returns with his Deep House song “A Mother’s Pain”. It really has a unique sound at the onset that resembles a Xylophone. I was refreshed to hear him thinking outside the box on what instrument to choose. Later, he changes it to a more digital type sound and seems to insert a reentry of […]
