Welcome back to the episode thirteen recap! I’m your hostess with the mostess, Blaes! Some episodes I’m not as critical, but there was a lot of talent this week, so I felt like they could handle my opinions. Now with that being said, let’s get into this weeks submissions!
Location: Toronto, ON, CA
Blasé Blah: I haven’t listened to many artist from Canada in a while, aside from those who are mainstream. But this song was very reminiscent of that PND/Drake sound. Which for me was disappointing only because because the lyrics were very similar to those of both artist. But non the less you’ve sparked my interest because I really did love the video! The whole idea of animation is something artist don’t do too often anymore, so this was refreshing. I feel like that kind of content really allows for the visual to maintain relevancy to the actual song. So I gave it 3.5????

Location: Tacoma, WA
Blasé Blah: Tacoma is really killing the game right now, and you’re definitely adding to it! So let me start off by saying, the only thing that I didn’t really like about the song, was how repetitive it was. Which I understand most Pop/R&B songs are. But I did like the song. Your voice is gorgeous and the way you mixed your vocals with the beat was dope! I’m excited to hear more from you, but until then, I’ll leave this song with 3.5????
Artist: Gilton East
Location: Federal Way, WA
Blasé Blah: Gilton! Why must you be so talented?! Like I said during the live show, I feel like you’re really young. Which is dope to me, because the story you’ll have to tell will only get greater and your development as an artist will too. The only real con I had, was video quality. Which I understand, sometimes you have to make do with what you have. So that wasn’t too critical to my overall vote, leaving you with 4????
