It’s been 4 years since this song was released but it still sounds as fresh as ever. Key To Your Heart is bouncy, bubbly and fun and is a quirky pop record that fuses guitars, synths and harmonies, underpinned by a two-step groove. It has elements of music spanning decades from the 1960s guitar sound (courtesy of Guitar Rig 4), 80s Oberheim synth sounds and a 1950s sounding acoustic bass.
Key To Your Heart is out now. Get your copy from iTunes.

Melbourne has been described as the music capital of Australia and with a rich tradition of independent (i.e SELF FUNDED) artists, we have to agree. In face we agree so much that we’ve decided to launch a Spotify playlist featuring some of Melbourne’s amazing artists. This playlist is as eclectic as it is electric and the quality will rival some of the Major Label products! We want you to bookmark it and play it everyday throughout the month of April and support these fabulous artists.
16 year old Aria Taylor recorded her first single “Friday Feeling” aged 14 and has been going from strength to strength ever since, with 6 songs on iTunes already. Ariaas just released a wonderful single called “Forever”. This song highlights how she has matured as a singer and a songwriter since her debut in 2014.
Forever opens with a beautiful synth/guitar riff which is followed by a rich, warm voice that grabs you instantly. It’s a bouncy pop song that will inspire you to bop around with your loved ones.
“it’s just meant to be a fun and uplifting song, and we made the film clip to have the same feel. It’s just meant to make people feel good about themselves and with their relationships with others”. Aria says.
Well it does what it says on the tin and we believe this could be the song that launches Aria onto the big stage.
Forever is out now!

I was feeling some r&b today and went on Spotify to try and find some decent r&b tracks to listen to and was quite disappointed to say the least and just when I was about to give up on it I heard a new track from Janet Jackson’s new album “Unbreakable”. I then put it on the Spotify player in shuffle mode and this wonderful track popped up. I tell you what, no one does harmonies better than the Jacksons and Janet (alongside Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis) are the best at it. Nothing more to say except play this song loud and on repeat! It is Amazing!! Kehinde. A.
She’s back with another early 90s piano dance track. It’s not as uplifting as Baby Love so I don’t think it will reach the higher echelons of the charts but it still hits the right spots.
Arguably his best work ever What Do You Mean is a very melodic and bouncy tune from Justin Bieber. No surprise that it has topped the charts all over the world. Justin was recently in Australia and performed the track on last Tuesday’s X-Factor although it wasn’t his best performance as he sounded a bit out of breath in places but he still put on a decent performance. The video is pretty interesting and features a more grown up Justin.
Chris Lake is a New Zealand born pop/soul singer and musician. He is a charming guy who knows how to entertain and is one to see live to get the full experience. Now based in Melbourne, Australia, Chris is set to take the music world by storm with his infectious personality, excellent guitarship and catchy songs. Absolute For Love is his first single and we quite like the video too. Absolute For Love is out now!
It took a while for me to get into this song but it was worth the wait. This is a fabulous song and the additional vocals by Justin Timberlake adds to it rather nicely. Now it is good to hear a disco song in this day and age of EDM mania. Turn up the volume, dance because Love Never Felt So Good!
