The David Morin Effect!!Published on Friday, 19 June 2015 21:48
I'm not Mr, rogers but ‘Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood’. As a
budding writer,blogger or whatever you wanna call it im beginning to grasp
the idea of being a writer. But what i'm really learning is to have a healthy
respect for the professionals that take their work seriously. The artists and
professionals that try to perfect their craft. Thats why Vancouver's own
David Morin is rapidly making splashes in the music industry. The self taught
multi instrumentalist is Known to perform on street or on stage in
Vancouver. I honestly think he doesn't have a preference either. I watch
numerous videos of him as he plays for crowds on the street which is
amazing because he is really talented!
The 30 year old neosoul singer/songwriter is flying below the radar but is
soon to be known globally using his unique blend of soul,hiphop
and jazz.As a youth David Morin was drawn to music and began to play. In high
school he would sneak into the school's music room to practice. After being
caught an appreciative janitor let him practice after school there and the
rest is history. Forming a group in high school they continued to practice
until they signed with an indie label and flew to New York to record in a
famous studio that had hosted the likes of Jill Scott. Like so many artists his
first experience in the industry was less than favorable. David Morin states
"I thought the industry was shady and our unity and friendships were
tarnished," . Well don't feel bad because i feel that way about most
industries..LOL. Morin returned to home and struggled for awhile
contemplating a new career move but strong willed friends urged him to
continue his passion. David began doing solo shows in Vancouver and
there he rejuvenated his musical passion and developed his live show. I
think that the live show is so underrated because i've been to plenty of big
names and i'm not gonna say no names but the studio voice didn't match
the live voice.David Morin is most definitely a musician and you will enjoy
his works. I love the track’ King of the World’ and’ Fair to Breathe’ His
album ‘Grow’ is out and you can check out David Morin and other artists
like him at streetwisesd.com/radio or live365.com ,iTunes. HOLLA.

MaoliPublished on Wednesday, 27 May 2015 04:59
Ok its like 2 am and i'm exhausted and need a break! In fact i
wouldn't mind an island escape. I've been to Hawaii before. i have been
to the caribbean. Both seem like a viable option but i'm stuck in the grinder
of life at this present moment. On the other hand i'm gonna stay positive
because i have just discovered my vacation in a bottle.( or in a speaker)
What im talking about is this group called Maoli. Maoli means native
Hawaiian in Hawaiian. The cool thing about this group is its style is like
caribbean reggae with island rhythmic sounds and r&b vocals. Are you still
with me? Maoli has successfully blended a sound that is totally unique and
its gonna be my vacay for the nite. Maoli started in Maui with Glenn Awong
a 14 year old with a dream. With the support of some high school teachers
he began to assemble a group and write music. By the time he reached his
senior year, Glenn was ready to share his music with a greater audience. In
2005 the group won the Battle of the Bands in Maui under the name No
Boundaries. In 2008 the group changed its name to Maoli and began its
first studio album ‘Groovin’.
In 2010, Maoli did it again with their 2nd release, “Rock Easy”,
featuring another treasure trove of #1 hits “Breaking My Heart”, “Whisper”
and “Rock Easy”. Their 3rd album “Arise” took to a national and
international audience exploring Maoli’s love for various genres of music.
“Something about your love” and “Time to get over” are just some of the big
hits that this album hosts . After some success they took their first
international tour to australia. Now Maoli is focusing on a fourth album and
bringing their diverse style of music west of america. The latest album
“arise’ debuted on billboard top reggae. Maoli has a warm and cozy sound
that is easy to listen to. The blending of genres is what's on display with
Maoli having being inspired by the likes of Michael Jackson,Stevie Wonder
and Bob Marley to name a few. Its obvious that Maoli is here to stay so
come check out Maoli anytime you feel like but rite now is the best time
