Artist of the Week – DIY Musician Tony Michael Ellis Weaves Melodies and Harmonies on ‘Undertow'It's no surprise after listening to the debut album by Los Angeles singer and songwriter Tony Michael Ellis, that Ellis lists The Beach Boys as his top musical influence, followed by The Beatles, and various Motown legends. The single, "It Soothes My Soul," combines upbeat melodies, acoustic guitar and piano, along with soaring harmonies, that couldn't sound more like a rendition of The Beach Boys' unique 60′s California pop sound that still sounds as fresh as it has for decades. The Beach Boys were really America's answer to The Beatles (no, it certainly wasn't, in musical considerations, The Monkees, although they did manage to give The Beatles a bit of a run for their money). There is no question at all that Lennon and McCartney and Brian Wilson were in a tug of war on the music charts for some time, and pushed each side to raise their game in regards to songwriting creativity, musical experimentation and overall production value, as demonstrated by The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys' classic LP, Pet Sounds.
This context is important when listening to Ellis' music. He is not trying to hide the fact that he borrows heavily from the two bands' ideas and signatures to write and record his own music. It's easy to imagine that Ellis spent years listening to albums from The Beach Boys and The Beatles again and again and again. As a southern Californian himself, he obviously has a closer connection since he was a child to the Beach Boys because their sound was, and still is today, the California, fun-in-the-sun, beach cruisin 60s pop sound that lead the way to countless artists and bands who made some of the 60′s biggest hits based on the genius of Brian Wilson.
My visual tribute to Lou Reed - 10/4/2014 at 8:09 AM - JoosTVD
My, I guess "more humble walk on the wild side" tribute to the late, great New York Rock 'n Roll Poet, Lou Reed. There are many of us musiclovers who have grown up with his songs.
His music aches! Listen to Berlin, my favourite song & album.
The whole idea of this song/video started off when I was scribbling down some thoughts that became spontaneous drawings, sort of a reaktion to his departure from this earth.......
