Music artists often prefer, once they establish themselves in a certain circuit or have managed to build a certain amount of fans/followers, to stick on what they do best and what provides them that blanket of comfort that guarantee them a lucrative return. In some respects, this is understandable enough, when you are an independent artist that cannot rely on a record label's financial support but the down side of it, it is that this philosophy kills creativity.

There are also fortunately those that rather prefer to follow instead their musical growth without disrupting their artistic integrity and keeping on exploring new musical highway, just like the Pennsylvania-born Blues/Rock and Funk guitarist and singer/songwriter Jeff Fetterman.

2019 has been another fabulous year of music. The health of this extraordinary art form is now, more than ever, strong and powerful under many aspects, as the caliber of the records reviewed by our website this year clearly confirms.

At Bluebird Reviews, we are honored to review, year after year, music artists of exceptional ability that help to provide, through their amazing artistic skills, the best possible platform to inspire the current generation of musicians from all around the globe and the future generations to come.

In a time of the world where we are surrounded by an enormous amount of pressure, expectations, where uncertainty for the future seems to be the constant point of concern for the whole humanity, it's hugely comforting to know that at least, Music is still there to provide for us those rare moments of inner peace, that brief time for escapism from reality that we so much crave for, at the end of another challenging day in our personal journey in life.

Creating atmospheres able to generate sonic feelings of strong spirituality and inner peace, has always been one of the strongest skills of the Italian Pianist and Composer Roberto Cacciapaglia, an artist whose compositions have always been inspired by space, nature and its many movements, all elements that have brought the Italian Composer to create immortal piano pieces, through the years, that are well known all over the world not only for the depth of melody they naturally possess, but also because of their intensity.

Chicano Music has gone through a lot of transformations and highs and lows, in the last half a century, sometimes in a good way, some other time not really up to the standards that the genre's Kingpin, Lalo Guerrero, reached in the late 40's.

It is therefore refreshing that a record that sticks to the traditions and the foundations of Chicano Music, with a little contemporary twist, like Johnny & Jaalene sees the light of the day right now, in 2018.

2022 has been a highly successful year for the British/German singer/songwriter Roxanne De Bastion. The unanimous praises received from the English and European music press and from old and new fans for her latest studio album You & Me, We Are The Same, has brought this young and highly talented artist to the attention to wider and wider audiences, thanks also to an extensive amount of Tour dates, where De Bastion was also the Support Act for very big names of the music industry, like the Synth/Pop Master Howard Jones, among others.

De Bastion's aforementioned latest studio album has been and still is one of the highest points to date in the musical career of the London-based troubadour artist and the way that the crowds have increasingly embraced the sometimes minimalistic but highly effective sonic approach, inspired songwriting and vocal intensity of De Bastion, since her 2017 debut album called Heirlooms & Hearsay up until now, it is hugely impressive.

One of the secrets behind the success of a great album is the ability to keep the sound fresh and vibrant throughout the record, at the same time entertaining the listeners and jiggling different musical layers that magically fits inside one another, like a perfectly shaped sonic Matrioska.

This is something that the Leicester-born and London-based troubadour Jack J Hutchinson and his band of brothers Boom Boom Brotherhood fully manage to achieve in their debut album called Set Your Heart For The Sun.

Every artist feels the concept of Music in different ways and releases his/her own interpretation of it according to their inner instinct or, perhaps, by compromising their musical skills and their vision with what can be seen as a contemporary sonic trend or the latest "Hip" kind of sound.

Thankfully, the multi-faceted Rock and Soul Dutch collective DeWolff belongs to the first category of the aforementioned artists, a band that keeps pushing their musical boundaries on each passing record towards a musical greatness that they have most certainly achieved through their brand new album called Love, Death And In Between.
