Honey Brown

#1 R&B Pick HotIndieMusic.com

Our Favorite Tracks
Feelin Good
Hot Daddy ***HOTNESS ALERT!!***
Ghetto Story ***Song Is Deep***
It’s Alright

Our Ears Say…
This woman is electric. She’s got that Faith Evans sound. Best of all she’s singing real R&B, not a dirty south attempt at a ballad. Ms Brown’s voice is amazing, the tracks are melodic, her lyrics are real words and she’s our No. 1 R&B choice.

Room For Improvement
Nada for Ms. Honey Brown herself, her vocals are AMAZING!! We do have a little beef with her Audio Engineer. The mastering could be just a wee bit tighter, no worries though.

#2 Pick HotIndieMusic.com R&B

Our Favorite Tracks
Disguise
Hitting Me Hard Now

Our Ears Say…
Tess’ music will take you back to true R&B and make Alicia Keys want to go practice. The sky is truly the limit for this young lady. She made are job very hard, but it was highly enjoyable. The production on Tess’ album is one of the best we’ve reviewed. Kudos to her production team.

Room For Improvement
Tess is young as is her voice. She’ll have to strengthen her voice but that will come with time and vocal training.

#3 Pick HotIndieMusic.com R&B

Our Favorite Track
Marry Me **(This is a Hit!!)**
song starts slow, give it a chance

Our Ears Say…
There are few males that sing true R&B and Harvey Lee is one of the elite few. Lee has a Jaheim R Kelly type style, but his sound is completely original. His tracks are full of melody and great harmony. It’s really a breath of fresh air from the current garbage in the industry. Lee’s voice is unique, like nobody we’ve heard, but you be the judge.

Room For Improvement
Lee has a great voice but for some reason vocal performance is much stronger on some songs than others. Still a solid album.

4. S. Davis

Buy It on CDBaby!!
Our Favorite Tracks
Journey
Stir It Up Again (It’s on his MySpace listen!!)Our Ears Say…
One of the craziest R&B sounds we’ve heard on the Indie scene.
S. Davis is coming to you out of Canada and he’s coming fast and hard. He’s got fast tracks, slow tracks, reggae tracks you name S. Davis has got it!! Unfortunately this is only an EP and not a full album, we are positive his album will be stellar

Room For Improvement
We need a full album. We could not rank him higher without hearing a whole album.

#5 Pick HotIndieMusic.com R&B

Our Favorite Track
Why (this song is so d_ _ _ hottt!!)

Our Ears Say…
We have been playing Shiron Denise’s song “Why” over and over again and we suggest you do the same. Shiron has different sound. We’ve put her in R&B, but Ms Denise’s album features some club/dance mixes of her R&B songs. Why not, Rihanna and Ne-Yo are doing it?

Room For Improvement
As we mentioned above Shiron Denise is extremely versatile so she can be a little hard to follow. It may feel like she’s all over the place, but we think it works. _______________________________________________________________________________________5.

#6 Pick HotIndieMusic.com R&B

Our Favorite Track
Mama Told Me

Our Ears Say…
This young lazy has a crazy sound like Nelly Furtado, Pink or Amy Winehouse. We put her in the R&B category because her fast tracks definitely have a hip hop swagger. Ms. Smith is definitely soulful and she sings with a lot of emotion. We look forward to hearing more of her work.

Room For Improvement
Ms. Smith is definitely onto something. She needs to continue to continue to develop her style even more to separate her from the pack.

#7 Pick HotIndieMusic.com R&B

Our Favorite Track
My Woman

Our Ears Say…
Ahmed can flat out sing. His voice is amazing and reminds us of a young Michael Jackson / Ne-Yo with a little accent. Ahmed’s style is purely his own. We commend him on his trilingual lyric ability. Ahmed’s album features songs in English, French and Arabic. Therefore, we also feel his album title, ‘Tolerance’, is fitting and well deserved. We welcome Ahmed’s music and we love its feel.

Room For Improvement
Ahmed has all the right gifts, but his delivery needs a little work. A good model for him to follow might be Craig David.

Our Favorite Track
Knight In Shining Armor

Our Ears Say…
This young man has a great sound. He sounds like a cross between T-Pain and Justin Timberlake. Yeah, we all thought it could not be done but alas we present Rod Michael.


Room For Improvement
We need more music!! We could not rank him higher without hearing an EP.
