Freddie Atlas - Amazing Music!!!!

*** Disclosure - I did receive payment for my review. All opinions are my own. All opinions are honest. ******

Let me introduce  you to what I'm sure will be one of your new musical favorites....Freddie Atlas
His Bio States " Born in 1988 as Frederic Casimir in Montreal (Canada), Freddie Atlas is a singer, songwriter and accomplished pianist. His central passion in childhood was to capture people’s imagination with tricks and entertainment.
Two of Freddie’s four academic degrees are from the Berklee College of Music. After his professional education, Freddie relocated to New York City in 2012 and started his career performing on the Lower East Side scene as a background singer for up-and-coming artist Katherine Hernandez.
His sound is unique – combining a 90’s pop touch with a hint of impressionism (late nineteenth century classical music). Freddie’s vision is to capture people’s imagination with the sounds of the human experience; psychology, impressions, time, universal love, pain and dreams. His fashion style and sound are polarized, bringing contemporary visuals to the classic ponders and orchestrations of humanity."

Let me tell you - His sound is Definitely unique. I have never heard music as beautiful as it is played by him. He takes simple songs and takes them to a whole new level -
I had the pleasure of listening to 2 of his covers, as well as 2 originals.

I will be reviewing one of his covers first - He covered  "My Valentine" by Paul McCartney , which is a bold move in and of itself -  I have never heard a cover of music by Paul McCartney that I liked... Until today - Freddie puts his own spin on it and makes it hauntingly beautiful  -
Now i'm a country girl-  You'll find country music on my radio at all times. We throw a mix of things in here and there for the kids but, its about 95% country --- That was, Until today! I will now be following Freddie and listening to all his music as it comes out!!

Next I Listened to his originals "Vain" and "Visions" - His originals are breathtaking - The vocals are beautiful, the music is so unique that really, I can't describe. You really need to check him out for yourself because trust me , It is WORTH the time it takes to listen to some new music..
His originals have a calming sound to them . It's nothing loud or harsh. They are beautiful.

I ended the day listening to his cover of " Wicked Game" - I will admit, this is a song I had never heard before so I searched the original to compare (because what kind of reviewer would I be if I didn't ...).  
I certainly prefer his cover . He brings a unique spin to a song I would typically not listen to, and makes it a song I'd come back and listen to again and again.

In the end , I found a new musician I will be following ( on facebook ) and I look forward to new music coming out --- and I hope you do too!!!

If you'd like, you can head over to facebook and show him some love * and let him know you heard about him here!! *
