CD Review: New Music From Indie-Pop Artists J. Sutta, J-Bella, Omeri & Jazz Band E-Life 7

Former Pussycat Dolls singer J. Sutta recently released her full-length debut album on March 3rd. Her new album titled "I Say Yes" was produced by multi-Grammy winner Rico Love and features guest appearances from Pitbull, Liam Horne and Will Peters. The new 15-song release begins with the high-energy dance beats of "Reign" and addictive, electronic pop of "Distortion" as her voice is the highlight of any song she sings on. The R&B flavor of "Feel Like Making Love" and her duet with Rico Love in "I Say Yes" showcases her seductive vocals. Her song "Forever" hit #1 on the independent singles chart as the beats are strong, while she rolls out the lyrics. The soulful electronic pop of  "Inches Away" is where her vocals soar as she is able to let loose. She finishes up with Fuse ODG lending a hand on the high-energy, remix of "Special" and the laid-back R&B vibe of "Sunday Island." To find out more about J. Sutta and her latest release "I Say Yes," please visit jsutta.com.

From New York comes the debut album from R&B/pop singer J-Bella titled "All For Nothin'." It is one of the first releases to arrive on the brand new independent music label Three 2 Go Music. J-Bella grew up a fan of Mariah Carey and was influenced by Alicia Keys as she allows her vocals to soar on the opening track "Shine Remix." Her new 8-song release continues with her soulful delivery of "I Choose You" as J-Bella duets with the equally talented Roger Gossom on this ballad. She showcases her wonderful vocals in the soulfulness of "All For Nothin'," before bringing back the energy of "Game" and "Up Down." Her new album finishes with the return of "Shine" and a special bonus remix of "Shine" that displays how her vocals can accommodate many different music genres.

Also from New York comes the debut album "Day Dream'n" from pop singer/songwriter Omeri. His new album will be released on March 24th through the Three 2 Go Music label and features a diverse array of music from pop to R&B to soul to rock. Beginning with the title song, Omeri instantly becomes accessible with the pop infused rock swing of  "Day Dream'n." The soulful delivery of "Guess I'll Be Waiting" and the light-hearted, fun, up-tempo pace of "Read Your Mind" will have Omeri on your playlist as you discover the talents of this young musician. His soulful vocals during the ballad "Don't Look For Me" will warm your soul, before he finishes his new 8-song release with the R&B delivery of "One Night" and an extended version of the title-song.

Finally we arrive at the debut album from E-Life 7 featuring Michael Pennick on bass. The new album titled "Miked Up" is also being released on March 24th through Three 2 Go Music. The new 14-track release begins with Pennick making a statement with his bass as he trades licks with guitarist Ronald Walker on the instrumental "Sunday Night." Pennick leads the way through the funky rhythm of "Choas" and delivers a "Smooth Ride" with the jazz tones of saxophonist Ken Whitman. E-Life combines the elements of rock and funk for the high energy of "That Girl," before Michael Pennick digs deep down for the bluesy bass solo of "Tony Rome." They introduce vocals into the R&B backdrop of "Feelin' You," before slowing down for the six-minute jazz of "Before The Storm." The album finishes with the bright, up-tempo pace of "Beautiful Day" and two radio edits of the songs "Tony Rome" and "Feelin You."
