Tony Jacob - Single Review: Just One Step

11 May 2022 // A review by Darryl Baser

The 2021 released single Just One Step by Tony Jacob is a sumptuously produced song, with lyrics and a very positive vibe.

"You can move on mountains with just one step, you could take the world on with no regrets.." is only one example of a song which aims to uplift people, and succeeds.

Just One Step is a mathematically perfect pop song, which is expertly constructed; there’s a brief intro, first verse, then the chorus hits about the 40 second mark. Then there’s a key shift up a step after the middle eight, which showcases his stunning voice.

Tony has been described as having a ‘higher than usual’ male voice, and it is a crystal clear high tenor, which some may call a gift from God.

Musically Jacob is no slouch either; the afore mentioned production is modern pop soul 101, with layers of textured instruments and well-chosen electronic drums.

Tony Jacob was born and raised in Auckland, won the Top Male Vocalist of his year at the Excel School of Performing Arts, before winning two Pacific Music Awards with his band Lifestyle of Worship in 2014.

Just One Step is one step towards his debut EP released which Tony is planning to release some time this year.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

The New Things - EP Review: Pink Chocolate
20 May 2022 // by Darryl Baser
If I had to sum up The New Things four-song EP Pink Chocolate in two words they would be ‘perfectly imperfect’. The New Things are Tina McIvor and Jason Tamihana-Bryce, both have been around the indie music scene for a number of years separately and together; touring Japan a few years back.

01 May 2022 // by Darryl Baser
Think of A Number is the first of a series of seven singles being released by This Little Badge, a project led by Dave Pope. This song is an upbeat little number, based around the house lyrical phrase "think of a number", with the title line being repeated for the chorus.

Tryonics is the solo project of Hap Richardson, formerly of My Little Pony, Go Victim and Freezer Child. And that’s about there is to know about Tryonics, apart from a growing catalogue of tunes.
Nigel Parry - Single Review: One Word War
02 Dec 2021 // by Darryl Baser
“Me job to pick off the Hun, In the sights a lad like me, One shot, and I’m alone;” just a few of the lines of this stunning, beautiful and at times harrowing poem based on Nigel Parry’s family history of relations serving in World War I. 7:56 is typically too long for a single, Queen found that out when they first tried to release Bohemian Rhapsody.
Aidan Ripley - Single Review: Let Us Bloom
24 Nov 2021 // by Darryl Baser
Teenage singer-songwriter Aidan Ripley released his new single Let Us Bloom on all platforms October 2021. The song is a stripped back acoustic guitar song which sounds like a solo love ballad, until Ripley’s partner Caspian Wilder adds her voice.
Bundy Lore - Album Review: Failures Peach
30 Oct 2021 // by Darryl Baser
Duncan Harwood (Dumb Dumb Head, Happy Hearse) releases his debut solo album Failures Peach under the moniker Bundy Lore. I’ve heard a lot of great first albums and Failures Peach sits nicely amongst them.
