Epic Love Songs Written by Kimiko Ishizaka and Sung by Christina Jones

Published

After nearly two years of international collaboration, the functional love songs that Kimiko Ishizaka wrote and first sang to save her love and relationship have been released featuring the vocals of Christina Jones (American Idol and Berklee Conservatory).

The full album release follows four singles which have together already received over 10 million streams due to their popularity amongst influencers on TikTok and Instagram.

Kimiko Ishizaka wrote the love songs in the throes of despair, faced with the unexpected dissolution of her marriage. The songs were meant to serve the functional purpose of saving her relationship, which has now celebrated 20 years and the recent birth of their first child.

The album, an international effort, was recorded mainly in The Dominican Republic, with contributions coming from studios in Germany and Los Angeles, reflecting the limitations and pragmatic necessities of making music during the COVID-19 pandemic. Kimiko and Christina were unable to meet in person, which makes this project so groundbreaking.

Industry heavyweights Corey Allen (producer, arranger, keyboards) and Allan Leschhorn (recording engineer) enabled the high production quality of the recording. Robert Douglass (Open Goldberg Project) is the executive producer and artistic director.

“An emotional roller coaster from start to finish, this gripping and hauntingly beautiful (and not to mention catchy!) album will have you in tears at some moments, and dancing with joy at others.”
Miranda Martin, Lifestyle Blogger

Kimiko Ishizaka is a German/Japanese composer and pianist best known for her completion of Bach’s unfinished final fugue, and for her performance in the Open Goldberg Variations.

New Jersey’s Johnny Quest The Rebel + Cruch Calhoun Drop “Blue Diamonds”

Published

on

With 2021 quickly coming to an end, Quest has decided to run into the new year on FIRE, ensuring that anyone who witnesses take notice and recognize that New Jersey is fully entrenched in the hip-hop scene.

After dropping his last EP Money Dreamz in May (earning a BET Jams placement and featuring in publications such as Flaunt Magazine and All Hip Hop), he got back in the studio quickly. His follow-up is “Blue Diamonds”, a verbal checklist to determine if you got the “glow”, even before others recognize it in you.

Blue Diamonds is a reflective look in the mirror, a reminder to all listening that pressure and experience are what build us into diamonds. With rising star producer Fatir offering cinematic-style production, Quest brings listeners into his movie. They are taking a walk in the shoes of a star, right before his rise to fame. While Blue Diamonds is a story, it’s also a warning shot, a unification of North Jersey and South Jersey that has been in the making for some time. With Cruch Calhoun, a solidified star and frequent Dave East collaborator, offering OG perspective in a chilling verse, the record takes on a different feel.

Through his last few releases, Quest has begun building his reputation as one of the emerging forces in New Jersey. With Blue Diamonds, he only continues to shine bright as a burgeoning star.
