Rock Artist Rhett May Releases Hit Album Creatures of the Night

Great rock music can be hard to come by. Ever since the contemporary music evolved into a more electronically focused sound, classic rock has been falling in popularity. However, likely due to his long history of playing, listening to and writing rock music, Rhett May has done an incredible job of reviving the classic psychedelic rock sound from the past.

 

The album plays cohesively but, at the same time, many of the songs stand alone as incredible works as well. May successfully incorporates tones of jazz, pop and funk into many of the songs as well as inklings of eastern culture. This includes various sitar lines and eastern drum instrumentation. The most distinctly multi-cultural song in the album is called “Elixir of the Gods” and it is well worth your time to take a listen. Another highlight off the album is a tune called “Back Seat of My Chevy.” This song is mid-tempo with a chugging acoustic guitar sound. May’s vocals are perfectly tailored to each song individually and it is clear that the construction of every tune and the album as a whole was carefully planned.

 

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Rhett Mays Creatures of the Night Brings Together Best of Western and Eastern Music

“Shadows move…darkness brings

Fearful faces…shapeless things

When the fog is thick…and the wind is cold

When the air is damp…makes them bold”

 

These are some of the strongest lyrics in Rhett May’s title song from his new album “Creatures of the Night.” The album is truly the peak of May’s musical career so far. His most recent album “Fast Cars and Sitars” (2015) was incredibly well received but “Creatures of the Night” has surpassed the positive feedback received two years ago. Rhett May’s songwriting and musicality are truly some of the best in the industry today. In a review by Lance Wright at GasHouseRadio, “Creatures of the Night” is described as, “involving and inventive… and the songwriting is consistently tailored to just the right length and buttressed with top flight production values. Everything about Creatures of the Night smacks of a performer and songwriter who wants to make the best possible impression on listeners.”

 

Wright goes on to talk about the individual songs in the album. He speaks highly of “Somebody’s Watching You,” “Latex Lady” and “Elixir of the Gods.” The latter has consistently been reviewed as a crowd favorite and does a fantastic job of incorporating the sitar and other exotic eastern instrumentation while still remaining accessible to listeners of all backgrounds. However, it is a refreshing and more unusual addition to the album.

 

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Rhett Mays Creatures of the Night Album is Exceptional Rock Music Release

Some musical stories are more interesting than others. The story of an Englishman born in Calcutta, enlivened by the sounds of classic sixties music, transplanted to Australia by the dawn of the seventies, and then shut out of the musical ambitions he held so dear for thirty plus years before triumphantly reconnecting with that first love is the sort of tale one often finds in the movies,” said Joshua Stryde (of indiemusicreviews.net) when describing Rhett May and his incredible journey with music.

Rhett May’s newest album “Creatures of the Night” is truly one of the most exceptional albums to hit the music scene in recent years. Although undeniably a rock album, the music incorporates elements of pop, jazz, funk and psychedelic. It was absolutely May’s diverse and international life that lead him to create such a versatile and impressive album. He showcases his mastery of the guitar as well as the sitar, an instrument rarely used in rock music. In addition to creating such a phenomenal album, Rhett went the extra mile and shot a creative and gripping video to go with the title song. You can watch the video on his YouTube channel.

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Keith Chagall’s Youtube Hit Song Passes Lady Gaga and Katy Perry on Radio Charts

Last week Keith Chagall’s “Sail on Betsy Ross” was in the 3rd week of being the number 1 most added on the FMQB A/C chart on radio – tied with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry.   This week Lady Gaga & Katy Perry are no longer on the chart and his single is the #1 most added again! 4 weeks running! This time tied with Kelly Clarkson, Plain White T’s, Gavin DeGraw & Daughtry – quite an accomplishment for an indie artist!

Keith Chagall’s music video “Sail on Betsy Ross” is a tribute to the late great John F Kennedy. With a ‘60s pop sound, Keith’s video incorporates footage of JFK during his short time as President. The video showcases what people loved best about JFK, his ability to bring a nation together and the normalcy of this legendary president.

Keith’s new album speaks to the resiliency and heart of America. He writes music that will bring you back to the 60’s but keeps it fresh with meaningful lyrics about people in society today. “Sail on Betsy Ross”, available on Vimeo now is a hopeful song that reflects on a great President who showed us what great things as a nation could be accomplished when we work together.

You can buy the single on iTunes. You can also connect with Keith on Facebook and his website.
