I'm currently looking for some new writers in order to expand the blog given that I can't post the amount of things I'd like to. So if you are interested in writing about anything related to music (news, TV shows, album reviews, introducing artists) just drop me an email to musicisthedoor@gmail.com and we can discuss some of your ideas.

Interview: Rehyn







Rehyn is one of the new faces of the music business. With an EP under her belt (2008 released "A Time to Fly"), she recently signed a licensing deal with MTV, E!, and Oxygen networks. A peaceful voice with some touches of pure piano magic, I'm confident she'll totally get to you!.

I contacted her some time ago and we made this beautiful interview. She's planning to release a full album later this year, so you'll surely see more of her when this happens!

Catching Up With: Maroon 5











Three years have past since their second album, and now they are back. The first single from their third album, Hands All Over, which will be released on September 21, 2010, is titled "Misery" and it was released on June 22. According to Levine, the band will probably be disbanding after recording another album. It would be a petty, I really enjoy them. But I would like to see what he comes up with! About the song, it's another Maroon 5 classic, really, really great. The song is about Levine finding himself in a difficult situation when a relationship fades. I love the underlying message in the lyrics, but I won't say it to you!

Marina and the Diamonds: Oh No! Video Premiere











Welsh/Greek godess Marina Diamandis will release her fourth single, "Oh No!" on July 26, 2010. The single's video was filmed on June 10 by Kinga Burza. Burza said the concept of the video comes from the lyrics of "Oh No!" which refer to being obsessed with consumerism, success, money and fame. The much comic influenced video shows Marina in different retro dresses and performing odd and quirky dance routines. It made me remember of Andy Warhol's famous Marilyn Monroe painting, I don't really know why, maybe it was her money dress or the comic-like lyrics. I've intended to post a review of her album for a while, and I may end up doing it this week! Coming back to the video, it's just amazing and she looks really pretty!

Fefe Dobson: Ghost Video Premiere











Canadian singer, Fefe Dobson, is coming back from a 7 years hiatus, in which she didn't release any music,  with the release of her second album, "Joy" on August 17. Ghost is the second single of it, being released on June 21. The Dobson, Dioguardi and Rudolf penned tune has an incredible concept, it's just perfect. Fefe starts to stalk his boyfriend in dreams after she sees him kissing another girl. It couldn't be better! And the actor is a hottie. I'm really looking forward August 17!

Jaap: Don't Stop Believing Video Premiere











Jaap van Reesema is the latest winner of the dutch version of the X Factor. After his run on the show, he was signed with Sony BMG and went to release his first single, a cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing", which has climbed the dutch charts peaking #1. His first music video has a very original concept. I've never seen this approach on this song. I won't say is a masterpice but it's good, enjoyable. And Jaap's voice is perfect, quite raspy and very powerful.

Fantasia: Bittersweet Video Premiere











"Bittersweet" is the lead single form Fantasia's third album, "Back to Me" to be released on August 10. The song was released on May 11, 2010 and the music video premiered on June 25. The video was directed by Lenny Bass and features proffesional football player Devin Thomas as Fantasia's lover. I confess I wasn't a big fan of hers, I didn't really like how her voice sounds and the songs of her pasts albums. But this is a hole different thing, it's a huge WOW! It's sounds like one of the late jazz singers as Ella Fitzgerald but with a soulish blend and an incredible powerfulness. Conclusion, I'm in love with her now!

Catching Up With: Antonella Barba












Remember Antonella Barba form American Idol S6? Yes, that hot girl who was terribly bad and came out 16th. Well, she is back! And she has improved greatly!

I really enjoyed this video and I'd bet you will too! It premiered on her YouTube channel on June 24.

Catching Up With: Michael Sarver











American Idol Season 8 10th place finalist, Michael Sarver, is releasing his eponymous debut album on July 27, 2010. He's already released three singles from the album, "You Are", "Cindirella Girl" and the most recent "Ferris Wheel", for which he filmed a music video, after being signed by Dream Records/Fontana Distribution. Michael will be one of the few 10th finalists to release an album, being the others Lisa Tucker (S5) and Chris Sligh (S6) both quiet unsucessful; S9's Didi Benami's fate is until not determined and I believe she has a bright future. We just have to wait to see how his album does.

Amazing Kelis has just released her fifth album "Flesh Tone". The second single from the album "4th of July (Fireworks)" was released on June 8 and a music video of it debuted on YouTube on June 16. The video was all that I expected, it had fireworks, fire and a gorgous Kelis. She is supposedly depicted as the four elements and well, she does look like one.  But regarding this, very enjoyable video.

Adam Lambert: If I Had You Video Premiere












Glam rocker's king, Idol Season 8 runner up Adam Lambert has recently released this amazingly ... WEIRD music video on June14. But not a bad weird, a good weird if that's possible. We all know by now that Adam really enjoys wearing costumes, and he recluted a bunch of people that also do in this video, including the great Allison Iraheta. The video is really fun if we don't take it serious and Adam vocals are great as always in this song.

Interview: Syesha Mercado







Syesha Mercado had one of the best voices of Season 7, and even tough she came out third, her carrer was just starting. Now playing Deena on the Dreamgirls musical, she is still pursing a carrer in music and is starting to record her highly anticipated album. I'm more than anxious to hear what she has for us. This is a must read for any fan of Syesha, and I'm not saying it because it's my blog, I say it because her answers are very interesting and I personally learned a lot of thing I didn't know about her, so, enjoy!

Catching Up With: Stacey Solomon











X Factor 2009 third finalist, Stacey Solomon may have not signed to any label, yet, but she is really working on promoting her music and herself. She has recently recorded a version of "At Last" by Etta James, which is included on an album by the Royal Air Force Sqaudronaires called "In The Mood: A Glenn Miller Celebration" which was released on May 31, 2010. I wonder why she isn't signed yet, her voice is beautiful and she is a really nice person. Regarding that, the song is pretty good, very jazzy and slow, not sleppy, but slow, peaceful.

Kate Nash: Kiss That Grrrl Video Premiere


"Kiss That Grrrl" has been confirmed as Kate's second single from her sophomore album, "My Best Friend is You". Ths single will be released on June 28, 2010. This 50-60s influenced tune is pretty awesome vocally and visually. And Kate looks good in that dress! I don't think I understand the meaning of this song, aren't the cats supposed to do that sound? So? What do you think?
