Indie Gets a New Face!

                                                          Indie Queen: Olivia Millerschin! :) 

Everyone, meet Indie Queen Olivia Millerschin, a future superstar indeed. Yes, Indie Queen Olivia Millerschin possesses a rare extremely unique voice that can best be described as pure and delicate as fine glass. Her voice is crisp, fresh, and vibrant, with a quirky yet enchanting ring to it that immediately grabs attention. While her voice may not be super powerful, she shines with a more artistic tone in her voice, one that is crystal clear, light, pitch-perfect, and subtle. Her voice THRIVES on simplicity, and she certainly captivates the audience with her hypnotizing voice. When it comes to creativity, Indie Queen Olivia TOTALLY has it going on. :D I should mention that she excels at the upper register, enunciating lovely high notes in the falsetto range.

The Jasmine of Jazz

                                                  Jasmine of Jazz: Jasmine Julia Goodwin

Season 9 of America's Got Talent is DEFINITELY the year sporting the most wondrous vocal talents the show has ever seen. Among the very best was Jasmine Julia Goodwin, who surprisingly pertained to jazz/blues music. With a pretty face, a large vocal range, and a masterful vocal control for her age, Jasmine Julia Goodwin was a force to be reckoned with and was quickly established as an early front-runner. Shockingly, Jasmine Julia Goodwin experienced an early exit in the competition after performing a (in my personal opinion) exquisitely delicate and elegant take on Goo Goo Dolls' Iris. In all honesty, I thought she did an exceptional job and did NOT deserve to go home. That's why, we're going to vouch for her to make the wild card position (if there is one hopefully).

Jasmine Julia is certainly a personal favorite of mine because she dedicates herself as a "jazz and blues" singer, two of my most favorite genres in "American" music. For a fifteen-year old talent, it's remarkable that she can even articulate the complexity of jazz and blues let alone shine so proficiently when singing of such. You see, Jasmine Julia is EXACTLY the kind of singers we need in our fast-falling music industry to hell. For some reason Jasmine Julia reminds me a little of Miss Ariana Grande, who is now a "pop" superstar, but has the chops to sing more... classical and beautiful types of music. Jasmine Julia and Miss Grande actually have some vocal similarities (especially in the upper notes, though Jasmine Julia seems to have more of a character in the upper register as opposed to wayward whistle tones that either hit or miss). All the young stars go for "pop" music, and it's quite rare to find an artist that deviates to more mature/resounding genres of music like Lorde or Ellie Goulding. Jasmine Julia's title as a jazz singer kind of reminds me of Soul Sister Jacquie Lee in her respective dedication to soul music. In my opinion, THESE are the rightful stars of tomorrow, NOT "Pornpop" extravaganza Cyrus the Whore or the assorted Riff Raff from downtown. (okay, maybe that was a little harsh). :)

Anyway, Jasmine Julia is indeed a vocal talent of our generation, and we WOULD love to see her get a second chance on America's Got Talent by singing for a wild card. Here are her performances on America's Got Talent:


Jasmine Julia auditioned with a stunning rich jazzy performance of Billy Joel's In a New York State of Mind that was absolutely sensational it left practically everyone breathless including me. The judges were SPOT ON with their praise, giving significant highlights to Jasmine Julia's ability of vocal control, jazzy tones, vocal riffs, and falsetto breaths. To say that she was a tremendous talent... I AGREE! :D 


Jasmine Julia next performed Nina Simone's classic Feeling Good for Judgment Week, giving the song her signature jazzy tone with a burst of youthfulness. She also demonstrated some killer falsetto notes here as her father accompanied her on the piano. 



For her first live show performance in Radio City Music Hall, Jasmine Julia gave a refreshing gorgeous rendition of Goo Goo Doll's Iris, which was extremely polished and graceful. Sporting a ravishing red dress, Jasmine Julia was definitely a vision for the eyes as she gave a diaphanous performance. I truly believe that the criticisms on her from the judges were unwarranted and that they mistakenly blamed her for trying to show a more delicate side to her voice. And thus, I would like to encourage EVERYONE to vouch for her to be a wild card this season. THANK YOU!!! :D

Unfortunately, as Jasmine Julia is a budding artist, she doesn't have an established Youtube Channel as of yet, and we'll update this article once she does. However, with the things she has, we'll work with it. :)

The Reincarnation of Vintage!!!

                                                            Vintage Queen: Emily West 

It's official. My newest hero on America's Got Talent Season 9 is indeed Vintage Queen Emily West. She absolutely represents EVERYTHING that is missing from the music industry today... and that is soul, heart, and class. Vintage Queen Emily West is a country singer, a remarkable one at that with a powerful resonating classic sound intermixed with a Lana Del Rey-esque smokey lower register and a signature Southern-style country sound. Vintage Queen Emily West is certainly one of the best lady country singers I've heard in a long time, since Miss Carrie Underwood, and I DO believe that Vintage Queen Emily West can mirror Miss Underwood's success with her recent resurfacing on America's Got Talent.

But what really stands out about Vintage Queen Emily West is the amount of EMOTION she puts into her singing. And that may have been the result of her tragic experience with being dropped from a record label. The feelings of regret, desperation, and discouragement from such a devastating blow may have given Vintage Queen Emily West the hurtful emotions to implement into her songs, which makes her singing all that much more heartrending, sincere, and grandeur. To see what we mean, check out this incredible take on Roy Orbison's classic You Got It. 


The amount of sincerity and passion is sewn into every word. I'm willing to personally say that it was flawless to the point that I actually preferred Vintage Queen Emily's version to the original. Starting off with Lana Del Rey-esque lower smokey vocals, Vintage Queen Emily transcends all her passion into the song, allowing us to feel the yearning desperation, soul, and heart she had induced from a probable combination of her personal connection to the lyrics and the make-it-or-break-it pressure of Judgment Week (previously coined Vegas Week).

From the first moment that Vintage Queen Emily walked onto the AGT stage, she immediately stood out for her preference of classic vintage styles. Her hairstyle is that reminiscent of the late Legendary Senora Marilyn Monroe, and her outfits were stunningly of class. We NEED more artists like Vintage Queen Emily because this junkyard termed music industry is littered with plastic mannequins, artificial 'pretty boys', gold teeth, bling chains, and other obscenities so to speak. Vintage Queen Emily is like a statuette of hope, that class and cordiality isn't completely dead in the music industry.

Here are her stunning performances on America's Got Talent:


                                    Vintage Queen Emily West sings Sea Of Love with all that vintage charm! :D

Vintage Queen Emily's audition was indeed classical with so much soul, heart, and passion heard. This already set her as an instant frontrunner (and in my opinion, the best singing on AGT).


For her quarterfinal performance, Vintage Queen Emily West delivered a soul-trending rendition of Sia's Chandelier and quite frankly outdone Sia herself. Vintage Queen Emily's emotion was unrivaled, and her classical sound absolutely shone at full bright power. She even had on a vivacious Marilyn-esque veiled-laced beaded gown and a caricature to take us back in time. Along with a string orchestra, it was a stupendous performance that cemented Vintage Queen Emily's status as a blossoming star shown when she EASILY breezed to the semifinals ahead of all her competition that night.

Vintage Queen Emily is currently at the semifinals at the time of this article. In terms of star potential alone, I'd put my votes on Vintage Queen Emily. So keep an eye out on her and remember to vote! :)

Vintage Queen Emily actually had an experience working with Capitol Records at one point of her career. For a budding career, she did pretty well, landing a few singles on the Billboards and getting the opportunity to duet with Keith Urban. Vintage Queen Emily has three albums, which you will find at her itunes page I provided here:

Itunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/emily-west/id268716741

Her biggest successes so far are Rock In Your Shoes, I Hate You, I Love You Again, and Blue Skies with Mister Keith Urban. Here they are! :)


Here is the music video for Vintage Queen Emily's Rock In Your Shoes which peaked at an impressive no. 39 on the Billboards. Here, her country sound really kicks in. :)


Vintage Queen Emily's I Hate You, I Love You Again is one of her best songs, showing off her rich warm falsetto range in a tranquil background sound. It actually sold pretty well, having her full EP album peak at position 41 at the Billboards.


Perhaps her most well known original songs to date, Vintage Queen Emily's Blue Sky is a very emotional song showing off her powerful emotional voice. In addition, Mister Keith Urban accompanies her in the chorus. :)


Support Vintage Queen Emily! I have a feeling that she will finally be the country star that she DESERVES to be. :)
