Official Music Video Fundraiser

I am an Independent pop/easy listening/EDM singer-songwriter seeking funding for an official music video. Every donor will receive a signed CD and/or free download as well as a Christmas download of my current holiday single O Holy Night. Many have been comparing my vocal to Josh Groban. 

The funds will be used for an official music video to help promote an upcoming new single. My music has been gaining fans around the world and this year (2019) my music received over 150K streams/125K listeners on Spotify alone. Many fans have reached out and shared how emotional my music has affected them. I am so grateful for all the support thus far and hope to make a stunning visual aid (as a music video). With your support, every dollar donated will help my music be seen and heard around the world with this new music video. Below is a review on my release, Bittersweet. 

Music Review: THE FAULKNER REVIEW
EXCEPTIONAL SINGER/SONGWRITER - 8/2/19
This EP, Bittersweet, consists of four tracks and begins strongly with the title track. Starting with a haunting acoustic guitar melody, Mason’s highly distinctive vocal style emerges along with a simple but effective beat which then develops into a more intricate EDM rhythm. Mason gives an affecting, memorable vocal performance often near the top of his considerable range. The contrast between the delicate melodies and more strident beat makes for a very effective dichotomy.

It’s on the second track though where Mason truly gets to shine vocally. Shattered begins in a similarly understated way to Bittersweet, similar in style to an artist like Sam Smith, then starts to build to an epic chorus where Mason’s rich vibrato comes to the fore. The power of the vocals is matched by the strength of the vocal melody and the combined effect is breathtaking, especially the extended high note on the line “Make me whole again...”.

Burn maintains his signature sound of EDM-infused pop, this one even featuring a snare roll and riser before the chorus. Once again, the vocals excel and the “Let me go” hook sticks fast in the memory. The balance between well crafted songwriting and a slick modern arrangement/production style is very skilfully managed, making it cutting edge whilst having strong traditional elements.

The final track is an acoustic version of Bittersweet and the intimacy of this version allows the beauty of the vocal melody and lyrics to make more impact. It will be up to listeners to decide which version they prefer, but both have their merits. 

Overall, this is a very strong EP from a singer songwriter blessed with an exceptional voice. The standard of the songwriting matches the quality of the vocals and the infusion of EDM elements gives it a decidedly modern appeal. It’s surely only a matter of time before the world catches on to the brilliant talent of Mason Roberts and perhaps this is the EP that kicks down the door.
 
VERDICT= 9.1 out of 10 - Alex Faulkner (The Faulkner Review).
