Experience the Depth of Worship, Inspiration, and Hope in Seattle-Based Christian Rock/Pop Singer Ryan Graves’ New Project Titled “Legacy.”

Experience the Depth of Worship, Inspiration, and Hope in Seattle-Based Christian Rock/Pop Singer Ryan Graves’ New Project Titled “Legacy.”

This is Ryan Graves’ “Legacy,” a journey that started 30 years ago and has seen him grow, love, lose, triumph, fail, win again, and most importantly, give his life to Christ. Formerly “J.R.” Graves, Ryan has been a Seattle-based Christian rock and pop singer since 1993, and his new project “Legacy” is music that spans the three decades he has been in the music industry.

“Legacy” actually means the world to him… this is all the music he made when he started out—a 17-track compilation with three brand new additions. A project that reflects his own artistry, his love for Christ and his family, and the way he has grown into the very embodiment that his lovely wife saw in him; a husband, father, protector, and hero.

So sit back, enjoy these eclectic songs that are full of spirit as you experience the depths of worship, fellowship, and unstoppable testimonies and victories.

The track “Fly” was originally recorded in 1999, and the one you get to enjoy here is a rewritten and remastered version that really takes you places. Ryan’s voice—believe me, is it just perfection? His voice is so golden and heavenly, and when he sings, floodgates of emotions are opened from within the listener, who gets sucked into the performance naturally.

“Fly” starts with a delightfully charming, mellow guitar that sets the tone for the tune. Graves signature country-inspired melodies and songwriting style exude a fresh perspective.

The moderate tempo and gentle groove provide solid support for Ryan’s gracious vocals, as he sings with a mature tone imbued with hopeful inspiration. Lyrically, this tune finds comfort and strength in God to overcome tragedy and loss. While our time on earth is temporary, this journey finds hope in everlasting presence of God. The lyrics are profoundly touching; the message and purpose of the song are even more fulfilling!

And I have to say I found it fascinating how tracks like “Fly”, “Embrace” and “Scarlet” are over 5 minutes long and they don’t actually feel like it. And that is how you know they are indescribably good tunes that you could listen to over and over again without getting tired of them.

“To Know You” starts with an intimate and conversational verse quotation from the book of John 17:3 before the buoyant drum fill that gives it that edge of rock kick in. Full of soul and a tremendous amount of spirit, this track is a brilliantly blues fueled, gospel-inspired slow rocker that blends accomplished performances with a clear devotion to the theme that runs through it about the ups and downs of our relationship with God and even how Christ has remained steadfast in his everlasting love despite Ryan (humans) failing him on countless occasions and falling short of his grace and mercy.

“Enough for Me” features relentless instrumentation and bold lyricism that exalt the name of Jesus and his everlasting love, grace, and mercy. Ryan gives a fantastic performance that is steeped in both purpose and a deep level of conviction. And that chorus right there pulls the listener into a stupor!

Uplifting, inspiring, and deeply moving, “Legacy” is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and sometimes teardrops to your eyes.

I humbly ask of you to please take time from the chaos of your busy day to listen to this album; it is worth every minute of your time!

She returns with an empowering, inspiring, and uplifting performance themed “S.I.S” – a bold delivery that was inspired by women and sisterhood. This tune features powerful affirmations and captures the importance of women supporting each other.

Raw and honest, GSimone powerfully captures the immense strength and potential women possess, and just how unstoppable they can be when they harness that power.

She comes off poetic with a spoken word delivery that highlights her versatility as a performer. The production is smooth and gentle, providing the perfect backdrop for her lyrical prowess and allowing for the emphasis to be on the raw, meaningful words and GSimone’s emotive delivery.

The accompanying lyric video allowed the words to resonate with depth and meaning, making it an ideal complement to this masterpiece.

When the Streets Called, Hip-Hop Whiz Daraja Hakizimana, Known as $TYLJA, Answered With a Game-Changing Masterpiece, “MVP (Mix 1)”

Painting the intricacies of his own musical canvas with multiple colors is the producer, rapper, songwriter, and singer Daraja Hakizimana aka $TYLJA from Houston, Texas, and a proud member and contributor of “My Block Recordz,” a Houston-based indie label known for transforming the dreams of so many upcoming art creatives into reality. As a producer, Daraja has a knack for creating infectious beats and haunting melodies that tell deep and relatable stories. He released the 12-track album “MVP (Mix 1),” which received critical acclaim, with many applauding his production skills and competency to tell stories with mere beats.

“Shut That Trap” brings life to the beat with its ethereal vocal layers, sirens, and other distinct additions to elevate its appeal to stunning heights. The production fits the right merit for those introspective listening experiences, seeing that it has not been overdone and is still expressive in its own captivating ways. A fine balance has been achieved here between atmospheric appeal and laid-back melodicism.

With “Back To Work,” the stripped back foundation serves as an earworm for anyone listening and serves as an exceptional accompaniment for morning drives to work. The beat feels special and soothes the soul as well as warming the heart.

The song “Practice” gains depth and intensity from the famous quote by Allen Iverson, “I mean, listen, we’re talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game” sampled over the exquisite production.

Featuring eye-catching NBA clips, the music video for “Majic” elevates the jam to epic heights as you enjoy the music and get fascinated by the killer moves and dunks being unleashed by the players. This is a music clip that captivates and holds your attention.

Throughout this album, $TYLJA continues to showcase such production excellence with some otherworldly music in “We Outside,” “After The Game,” “Gang Gang,” and “She Needs To Go.”

The collection stands as a work of art, akin to a musical hall of fame (if it exists!)

After the long day you’ve just had, you deserve to listen to some good music, and $TYLJA offers just that with “MVP (Mix 1)”
