I grew up loving music, although I never played an instrument and barley sang, I was fortunate to grow up in a family of those who sang and to have a signed artist that taught me the value of various forms of music. When I listen to a song, I really listen for what I like to call "the goosebump moments". This is when you hear a voice that is distinct, lyrics that take your emotions to another level and being able to get to know about the artist and how they set themselves apart from others. IreneB has these qualities and more and is the reason why I love keeping an ear to new sounds especially those that are independents who you know that they will make a strong impact in the industry.
This singer/songwriter hails from Barcelona and as she prepares to launch her first CD "Metamorphosis" in her new home, Orlando, she has already accomplished so much on her journey. Her journey began with a love of R&B which was cultivated as she studied music for 7 years and then put her knowledge into practice as she graced various stages. Not only has her single "Forgive Me Now" played online and in radio stations internationally, this marks the first English R&B CD that was created from a Spanish native and distributed worlwide! Being someone who used to do PR for digital artists, I really love how her music has been included with quite a few podcasts!
The single is powerful not only due to IreneB's voice which reminded me of Tony Braxton and Christina Aguilera but her skills as a songwriter is evident as she sings asking for fogiveness in order to move forward. From the very first words, you're brought into the song and carried through with amazing melodies. IreneB's talent is undeniable; however, she knows how to pick a great team that is no stranger to working with the best of the best. Frankie Biggz has worked with such notables as Chrisina Aguilera, 50 Cent, Kanye West and much more! With his magical touch, I am excited to see where he will take IreneB. Available on iTunes this song has such a catchy beat and lyrics, that you will find yourself pressing repeat on your iPod. Also listen to the snippet (the button is right about the singers/songwriter's picture) that is available here on Kitten Lounge, then check out IreneB's Myspace page to stay in touch with where you can find her next and hopefully, we will be able to bring you news on where she will appear next!
