It only seems five minutes ago I was reviewing MidLifeMix's debut single "Liberation" when I received an email to say the E.P MidLifeMix was finished, she's certainly not hanging around and I admire her gusto and drive that's for sure, I also like the six track E.P. For someone that only self taught music production at the start of lockdown she's done a cracking job.
With impressive opening number "Joyride" it does exactly what it says in the title and takes you on a meandering musical journey, one minute I felt like a kid aboard a rollercoaster, hands up in air, the next, with hands remaining skyward I was transported to the back of a limousine, head sticking out the sunroof and the wind in my hair as I enjoyed this fun magical mystery ride.
Next up "The Fight" and you really get a sense of a battle within the music and even at this early doors it's clear the artist has a natural ability for instrumental storytelling, no mean feat even for a pro.
I've got to be honest, I'm not a big fan of instrumental and tend to find it a tad boring, as with all music it's got have that something special, not just to grab, but to also hold my ear lobes open for the entire duration and I can tell you the MidLifeMix E.P did just that. Her compositions are an exciting combo of sounds & anticipation, you never quite know where the track is going to lead. As founder of Folkstock records, she may have just slipped out from behind her desk and arrived on the scene as an artist in her own right, but let me tell you she's already marking her musical territory with her own unique stamp,
Til Next Time, Stay Blessed.
