This blog is dedicated to spotlighting select songs of independent or small-label artists. These songs can often (but not always) be characterized as pop music, encompassing its many sub-genres. However, none of these songs can be classified as “Top 40” (or any sub-genre thereof) typically heard on American radio and television. Proving that good, quality pop music is available…you just have to be willing to search for it or know where to find it. This blog takes away all of the work and leads the reader/listener straight to the discovery and enjoyment. The ultimate goal, of course, is to bring these “unknown” artists to the attention of the general public and give them well-deserved attention.

Song in the Spotlight: “Hey Pretty Lady” (Nick Sabia, from Time Lapse – EP (2014))

Genre:  Jazz/Pop

Review:    TuneTraveller generally has low expectations for any song containing the words “pretty” and “lady” (or any variation thereof); however, “Hey Pretty Lady” by Nick Sabia is an exception to the rule.  The song is more jazz than pop, but definitely contains elements of pop music.  And, let’s face it, every once in a while changing things up and broadening your horizons can be a good thing.  In any event, once you start playing the song, you’ll quickly find the groove (and maybe even find yourself snapping your fingers in time).  And, after a few listens, probably singing along, as well.  Allow your imagination to roam a little and you can picture a smokey piano bar with the man behind the ivories trying out his pick-up lines.  Mr. Sabia is in fine voice with this bouncy, little number and it’s no stretch to suggest that you’ll enjoy it so much that you’ll immediately download it and add it to your every-day music rotation.   Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
