Here at J.Says Online, we're happy to accept and critique independent music and Vontae` is the latest artist to submit material. From Lexington Park, Maryland, VonTae` is a R&B/Pop artist who claims Usher, Beyonce` & Luther Vandross among his influences. His current EP, "Broken Boundaries of Existence," features songs about romance and enjoying life. After listening to the project, I concluded that the singer-songwriter isn't quite ready for the main-stage, but has potential. Most of the lyrics are relatable, but sometimes are over-simplified. Considering the poetic title of the EP, the simplification is especially noticeable. Vocally, pitch-control is an issue, however, with the right consistent coaching, improvement can be reached. Vontae's biggest strength is that his sound is definitive; it's clear he knows his direction and how he wants to market himself. Time and effort is going to make him better. You can hear "Broken" in full and judge for yourself here. If you would like a review to be done for your independent music, hit the Contact/Info tab and fill out the form. Be sure to include your name, email, genre & audio and/or video links (preferably from SoundCloud or YouTube).
