The mastermind behind Orissa, David Dodini, graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and completed his masters at the Biella Conservatory’s Scuola Niccolo Paganini in Biella, Italy. Orissa’s live band is a roster of NYC’s finest musicians from Trans Siberian Orchestra, Neal Morse Band, Stratospheerius, Book Of Mormon, Dyed In Grey, Haakons Fault, Emergence and Astronaut Down.
The best songs are the ones that practically write themselves, just ask Chicago based producer Chason. His brand of pop blends just the right amount of nostalgia into the modern soundscape of the genre that it feels fresh and packed to the brim with soul. Take his new song “No Trust” for instance. The track features the damn near angelic vocals of Shuba for the first verse and split-duty on the chorus over a beat that feels like a modern spin on the 90’s brand of R&B that spilled over into the mainstream. This soulful sound pairs almost too well with the tale of millennial young love and jealousy on display throughout the whole of the track.
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Eleanor Tallie delivers a groove reminiscent of the late legend Teena Marie in the form of a new single called “Promised Land.” The seminal record was penned about a failed relationship, but Eleanor’s deep and layered approach gives various depictions including issues in America’s social and political climates.
“If the glove don’t fit the hand… why pretend you understand?” she strikes. “Afraid of a change… you might just find the promise land.”
