Hailing from New-York’s never ending stream of talent. Maxine Ashley stands out and somehow manages to capture our attention and drives our focus on her. She’s 20 years of age, has an eclectic range of musical influences you’d expect from these uber-connected, savvy and culture hungry “Generation Y” offsprings. Good for us, we always love getting a right kick when we get to listen something as far apart from Beyonce and The Smiths (two of her top influencers) but yet, manages to gel all of this in a pretty good shape. Not suprising then if Pharrell Williams and Kerry “Krucial” Brothers saw the potential this young lady had from the start and recorded with her. The result is an intelligent, naturally driven set of urban pop, R&B, electronic music, and soul into one FREE EP called Mood Swings… Get your hands on the dollops below…
Hi, I’m Ben (or Sodwee if you prefer), the owner of this veteran music blog. I was born in 1985 and raised in Paris, France. It's still my hometown by the way. I’m bilingual in English and French. I'm always on the hunt for that new sound. I have amassed a substantial amount of music over the years. My library reflects my eclecticism. I've traveled and lived abroad a fair bit and an avid consumer of culture, from movies, to live concerts.
What were you up to at seventeen? If you're like me, pretty much up to no real good for the world or yourself, right? We have been going through the queue of submissions over at SubmitHub this afternoon when this little wonder of a track by Alex McArtor titled "Biggest Fan" came through our headphones.
