Ben Tyler Covers Petty and the Result is Amazing !

Ben Tyler is a very gifted songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. If you have followed him at all, you know he has given us some great music to listen to. No need to look any further than his 2020 single, “Daughter of Mine” to get a feel for his talent. Some songwriters possess the unique ability to take another artist’s song and make it their own with incredible results. Ben is one of those songwriters.

Let’s face it, we’ve heard many hit songs over the years that were covered by other artists and the tendency is to say “Yeah, but the original was better”. And, in many cases, that is true. Every now and then, someone takes a song and completely transforms it in a way that stops you in your tracks. This is one of those times. While changing the dynamics and adding a little twist and turn, the song remains completely recognizable yet, totally new and different at the same time. This is a refreshing new take on Tom Petty’sI Won’t Back Down“.

Of course, when you get a little help from your friends, it makes the finished product that much more special. Recorded locally and produced by Jason Reif of Freestone Productions, Ben was surrounded by some of the areas best musicians that helped him bring the whole project together. Anthony Cubbage (drums, electric guitar, mandolin), Neil Grover (acoustic guitar) and Nicholas Capozzolo (bass guitar) were all major contributors. Jason Reif added some electric guitar and organ as well as background vocals that were right on point.

So, where can I hear this amazing cover of Tom Petty’s popular hit ? Well, it’s on it’s way. “I Won’t Back Down” drops on all major platforms this Friday, June 11. You can pre-save it now at https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/bentyler/i-wont-back-down. Don’t sleep on this one. Click that link and be sure to listen the minute it drops. Then, listen again and again. You won’t be disappointed.

Anni Powell Bursts on to the Scene with “Wild and Free”

Anni Powell, to me, has been one of the best-kept secrets in the Lehigh Valley. Well, not any more. Her debut album, “Wild and Free”, will make sure of that. Anni’s incredible talent and angelic voice have come to life with this brand new release and I have a feeling she is just getting started. If her first album is any indication, we’ll be hearing from her for a long time to come. Of course, like any great project, she had a little help from her friends. Her sister, her husband and local favorite Chelsea Lyn Meyer all contributed to the final product but, the real focus is on Anni’s talent on the keys and, of course, her amazing voice.

The album starts with an instrumental track – Blue Heron, Pink Flamingo. The song was inspired by, of all things, a design on a beer can. She joked about the marriage between the two and the amazing voice the heron was blessed with and said “I think I’ll write a song and call it Blue Heron, Pink Flamingo”. It’s an upbeat, jazzy sort of tune that really displays Anni’s talent on the keys. The title track, Wild and Free, and the final track on the album, Friends are two softer, ballads. Both tunes have a soothing, relaxing air about them and really bring out the best in Anni’s vocals.

On the upbeat side, the album is complete with Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way and Dance With Me. Both tunes have a jazzy, reggae, ska sound to them that make you, well, get up and dance. The former was written as kind of a challenge to herself. With an upcoming gig featuring original music, she felt the need to write a few more songs to make sure she had enough material to fill her time slot. Pressed for time, she called on something her mother always said to her – “Can’t means won’t. If you want it, make it happen”. The inspiration for Dance with Me came to her during a wine and jazz festival where she got engaged to her husband, Toby.

In a nutshell, the entire EP is worth listening to over and over again. On March 24, Anni appeared on my show, “Artist Spotlight with Ralph” on Rocking the Valley. That show will be replayed on Rocking the Valley tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at 8pm. If you would like to hear more music from Anni Powell and learn more about the making of Wild and Free, tune in at http://www.youtube.com/rockingthevalley. You can find Anni on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/AnniPowellMusic. At the very least, go to the link below and listen on Spotify or, better yet, go to your favorite site to buy music and download your copy now.
