With the ever-changing, and at times frightening outside world, there is one thing that’s for certain: nothing can stop the music. Blue Hawk Records has been grinding to perfect their seventeenth compilation album, Reviver. Since the start of the fall 2020 semester, the team has been meeting regularly, held in-person and virtual auditions, went into Lakehouse Recording Studio in Asbury Park to record, mix, and master the album, and is set for an upcoming virtual release show. The release show will be held on Instagram live on December 9 starting at 8 pm. The Instagram handle to tune in to is @bluehawkrecordsoffical.
Included are two rappers, Hasan Chambers and Gabe Garza, otherwise known as Double G, both whose songs take the listener through a story-like experience with a moving message. A&R reps Ethan Christensen and Mikey Sacnhez, helped arrange, and recorded on, artist Charlie Krause’s piano-based song “Those Green Eyes”, giving it a driving full-band sound. Nick Garretch and his band, White Wing, contributed a modern day, fist-pumping, rock track with “Out All Night”. With the team’s help, Monmouth freshman and solo singer-songwriter, Abby Garcia, took her once acoustic-only song, “Silver Linings” and added various musical elements to give it a very current and mystical sound. Rapper-Singer, Justin Ume, known as UME, who already has an impressive following, contributed the hit-sounding pop track, “At The Tone”.
The Live release show will be hosted by one of Monmouth University’s WMCX top DJ’s, Kayla Booker, and will feature live performances by our artists.
