Sultry Javelyn Pierces the Heart of Indie Pop with Cut to the Chase. Radio-friendly, indie-pop artist Javelyn is set for her new CD release April 1, 2004. It will be available locally in Southern California at Tower Records in West Hollywood and Marina del Rey and at Amoeba Music on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, as well as the web. An official release party will be on Saturday, April 3, 2004 at The Talking Stick in Santa Monica, California starting at 7:00 p.m., including live performances by Javelyn and friends.
Today's pop artists are becoming increasingly known for a single specialized trait: the ability to pump out radio hits by the dozen. In an age of modern pop, it is expected that pop stars will be nothing more than puppets, with producers and studio executives holding the strings. The music of top 40 and popular radio formats is big business, and the marketing formula behind recent artists is almost as visible as the glitter and flashy veneers that adorn both their costumes and their songs.
Fortunately for appreciators of the popular genre, independent pop is making a comeback as the creative answer to advertisements cleverly disguised as CDs, and one of its foremost artists has just released an album that will relieve their ears. With her very own brand of pop and an abundance of the soul music fans have been missing Javelyn is launching her new record, Cut to the Chase, early this April. Her first CD was played on over 200 national radio stations and Internet sites and garnered two small national tours. This album is set to go much higher, complete with upbeat melodies, haunting ballads, and of course, Javelyn's silky vocals, is the refreshing retake on pop music that listeners have grown accustomed to living without.
The most impressive aspect of "Cut to the Chase" is the incredible diversity of styles throughout. Rather than the average spry ballad/power pop mix found on many mainstream recordings, Javelyn hops from one format to another, utilizing acoustic feels, drawling dreamscapes, even piano or synthesizer-led lines that are as uplifting as they are relaxing. The reverberating sounds of "Cut to the Chase"s title track draw listeners in, bouncing on the strings of a light guitar line under Javelyn's encompassing voice. Conversely, the driving beat and strong social message behind Familiar Face carries listeners through the track, blending powerful vocals, electric guitar, and an ethereal undertone to create a truly evocative piece. Javelyn's more genuine approach to pop music gives her a unique sound; while remaining light and animated, the songs have a spiritual quality that seems to give them more substance. Only from You, another upbeat track, again carries a positive message and a bouncy feel. Using real emotions within her lyrics is Javelyn's way of keeping her music sincere, and without the "filler" mentality that many songs are written from. "Basically, most of my songs are very personal," she states about her themes, "I write a lot of them to me, to my own soul, to get through some rough times, to cheer up, to encourage, to reprimand."
Audiences respond to Javelyn's approach, readily identifying with her songs and her upbeat attitude. Though she continues to expand her musical understanding and scope by collaborating with other writers and arrangers for some of her songs, the message and direction of her music remains the same. With her first album, "Lady J: Music for the Soul", Javelyn gathered rave reviews for her individual style and intelligent writing, and she has continued in that same vein in her second full-length release, "Cut to the Chase". Not only does she persist in the style that garners her the most attention; she carries on in the way that makes her happiest: writing her own music, singing her own songs, and moving audiences in her own inspiring way.
Javelyn's unique and expressive style gives her a spot all her own within the pop genre, and allows her to pour all of herself into the music she creates, rather than subjecting her work to the whims of an executive board. As MusicDish publishes, "This is music for the soul. If you listen to the words and let the music take you away from your troubles, the spirit of each song will heal you and bring a smile to your face." "Cut to the Chase" is a remarkable album, and any enthusiast of pop or rock, truly any music fan in general, should pick up a copy of this release for their collection.
