Yes Musiqtone has ads.  But once upon a time, ad revenue each month more than met our minimum operating cost.  And also once upon a time, we relied on site donations.  And now we need your help again.  Your donation should be considered as an investment into the outlet, from our technology needs like server and upkeep costs and also ultimately the kind of independent and quality music journalism we offer, but we cannot completely do it if we cannot afford to send our people out into the field to cover events and get the inside scoop!  If we could get everyone to donate $5, $10, this thing would be over in a day.  But we'll settle for some of you to consider helping us...so please consider, any amount help.  No, ANY INVESTMENT will help.

For a new fairly new band, Amely has already made a big impact in the music scene.  They played their first show about two years ago and since then they’ve gained a solid fan base, signed to Fearless Records, put out an EP called “Hello World” this past fall, and been on a number of tours.  Amely will soon put out a new EP called “Live Under Lights” which is to be released April 19th.  After the success of their first release, this is an EP to look forward to. Although there’s only four songs, sometimes less is more and “Live Under Lights” is a perfect example of just that.

“Live Under Lights” is an acoustic EP featuring songs from the “Hello World” EP plus a new song.  The opening track is “Come Back To Me”  which is similar to the original version, just with a more mellow sound.  In the song “Hello World” it’s easy to hear lead vocalist, Petie Pizarro’s range of vocals which you can’t necessarily hear in the original version of the song.  The song serves as a nice alternative to the original version for someone who might prefer acoustic songs.

“I’m Not Missing You” is a new song on the EP with a ballad feel to it.  It starts out with a voicemail from a girl, which sets up a story for the song.  It’s a song about heart break that many people could probably relate to.  The acoustic sound adds to the meaning of the song and brings about emotion. It’s the perfect song to be done acoustically.

Editor's Note: As a special bonus to you, we are streaming their EP in case you haven't bought it yet and need a full listen before buying it at your favorite store or digital retailer!
