The voice it’s incredible, the vocalist has a nice vocal range. The combination of styles it’s great, it has the better of voice sides. The guitars are distorted but not so much, so it doesn’t destroy the song. The drums are solid. –Nuevas Frecuencias

The song has a great structure and an energetic chorus, the instrumental is really great and very well produced, congratulations. -Only Indie Music

The music transports you to exotic places in your imagination that call to mind the nightlife of faraway countries.

Hi Circle The Earth, another good track, an energic song, a good video too, we love. We’ll do a post to announce your entry!
Montréal Radio Cité

In my opinion the song is a good one, it has very good energy… and that guitar solo is concise but forceful. pass me the press release and I’ll upload it to my website as a recommendation.
LA GRAMOLA ENCENDIDA

Hi Circle the Earth, Great song!! We really enjoyed listening to your song. We think your vocals are great! The quality is excellent. We will be adding it to our “Heartbroken” playlist. -ITCAM MUSIC

A catchy voice, with well placed musical riffs, I really liked it, the band seems to me to be ready. The clip was very well produced. I will not criticize the lyrics, because it is not my native language. Send me all the material for the release. I have a place to put the song on the immediate release schedule. I look forward to it. -Radio Saquarema Surf Rock

Hello welcome back, nice piece. Pop rock just the way I like it. The soft start, the energy that rises up to the refrain and then explodes with energy and involves the listener. I put it in the playlist.
-Brainstorming Music

WOW! I think this rock’n roll girl band concept is incredible! You have amazing visuals; I was curious about your music in the first second that I put my eyes on it. I really like how the voices go, the melodics are catchy and pop, and a perfect mix with the heavy metal based instrumental. I really really want to hear more from you guys! – Na Beira do Palco

I like your sound, it’s powerful, fresh and catchy. I will glad to share it on my radio show, on 88.5 FM in Valencia Spain.
-Aire alternativo – Aire latino 88.5 FM

I liked a lot the 2010’s pop vibe of this song. The melody has a nice balance between the piano clean chords and with effects, the beat and the guitar overdrived chords of the chorus and the bridge (that I thought interesting how it was soft till those parts). I also liked the vocals pitch and how energic it was at the chorus. So I’ve decided to share this track and I hope to receive more from you in the future.-Natália Barão

Thank you for submitting your music! I’m going to add your track to our playlist/radio TODO DIA FM 😉, which will be available during the next week, and may return in future updates, in order to help promote your music. Thank you for trusting this partnership!
-TODO DIA UM CD DIFERENTE

Do you remember exactly where you were 15 years ago today? I do — I was in London to cover the Led Zeppelin reunion at O2 Arena. The concert was on Dec. 10, 2007, but I spent much of Dec. 9 in the O2’s cavernous foyer, interviewing Canadians who were waiting in line — sorry, queueing up — to claim the tickets they’d bought online after winning spots in a lottery. Naturally, I asked what songs they wanted to hear. One gent was hoping for The Immigrant Song. “Good luck with that,” I replied. Anyway, to mark the 15th anniversary, Zep will be streaming the video of the show — officially released as Celebration Day — for free on their YouTube channel on Saturday. I might take a stroll down memory lane and check it out. But first, join me on a trip through today’s 214 singles, videos, cover tunes, remixes, golden oldies, live clips and holiday tunes — including the usual raft of offerings you won’t find anywhere else. Your Tinnitist-approved tracks are tagged with a (Robert) 🪴. Does anyone remember laughter?

Circle The Earth Too Many Pieces

Female-fronted, multi-cultural rock band Circle The Earth has gifted fans with the release of their new single “Too Many Pieces” today. The official music video for the pop-rock song, produced by Ethan Kaufman (Avril Lavigne, Ryan Cabrera, DOROTHY) and co-written by Jim McGorman (Avril Lavigne, Weezer, Gwen Stefani, Goo Goo Dolls) and the band’s guitarist Kazuki Tokaji, features footage from the Los Angeles-based quintet’s recent performance at the Alzheimer’s Los Angeles Making Memories Festival alongside Los Lobos, Cut Chemist, and others.

“All the pieces fit together beautifully if we will only allow it,” shares the band of the new song. “Playing at the Alzheimer’s LA Making Memories Festival was our very first music festival performance as well as our first official performance for the City of Los Angeles,” they add. “In addition to the cause, which is so important, this was extremely gratifying for us because we were chosen by the city specifically because of the strength of our music, our energetic live performance, and our multi-cultural message of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance that the City of Los Angeles stands for.”

“Circle the Earth blew me away. Quite literally…OMG,” exclaims Brian Welch, Associate Director, Events for Alzheimer’s Los Angeles. “I wasn’t prepared for that force that hit our stage. The musicianship, the showmanship, the licks, the hooks, the looks. It was ALL there.”

They strive to produce music as positive and uplifting as possible, with messages of unity and inclusion that emphasizes the beauty of diversity and leaves good vibes in its wake. The band officially debuted in 2020 with their single Could Be You and have also released the singles Dead,” “All The Way,” andDiamonds, amassing nearly 4 million views on their YouTube channel and over 1 million streams on Spotify as well as media support from the likes of Music Connection, Spectrum News, mxdwn, The Indy Review, AntiMusic, The Rock Revival, and more.

Although the song appears to be upbeat and follow the Rock style, the lyrics hold that underlying feeling of deep emotion which takes the song to new heights.

The band’s updated-yet-nostalgic Rock approach brings back some similar sounding bands that were very popular in the early 2000s.  “Diamonds” gives off a noteworthy sound that has Alternative tendencies, all while captivating the ears of new audiences.

This single has a deep underlying message for those from younger generations and this song is a perfect representation of the times from a band who grew during the pandemic.

Kazuki Tokaji’s latest release ‘Souvenir’ is slated for release on July 22nd, the artists 26th birthday. The slow melodic and entrancing single is a metallic instrumental affair that has just enough experimentation to separate from the crowd. One of the key takeaways is that anyone who tried to put Kazuki Tokaji into a certain box of definition will always be proven wrong eventually.

Not Just A Musician

The young artist is not only an accomplished musician in his own right, but he’s also a coach and moonlights as a teacher for up-and-coming artists who need that extra push. His songwriting ability has also been something of note with collaborations with famous writer Jim McGorman of Avril Lavigne and Goo Goo Dolls fame.

There is a noticeable dedication to innovation and evolution with every passing Kazuki Tokaji release, and with the imminent release of ‘Souvenir’ to keep our airwaves busy for a time, it’s exciting to imagine what could happen next.

Japanese guitar maestro Kazuki Tokaji

Kazuki Tokaji is anything but an ordinary artist, born in Japan in 1995, he developed a keen ear and passionate dedication to music from an early age and since moving to Los Angeles, is showing no signs of slowing down. The eclectic artist has made some substantial waves in recent months with his various avenues of approach to his love for music.

Since the age of 7, the musician has been enamoured with the guitar and has manifested his passions into a wide portfolio with some impressive stats in his young career. Beginning with his graduation from the Guitar Performance Program at the Musicians Institute, he quickly found some headway with collaborations and shared performances with accomplished peers like Grammy-award winner Steve Vai in 2018, along with Marty Friedman of Megadeth notoriety.

Moreover, Kazuki got new endorsement with Hughes & Kettner. Here’s am amazing demo performance:

 

The emotive guitar vibes are impressive to say the least and has sparked his renewed dedication to delivering further explorations of his own styled sound. His sound was also notably present in a recent guest solo he performed on one of his recent singles “Souvenir.”

Kazuki is no stranger to maintaining his craft and consistently working on his sound – his two bands Dylan ‘n’ Alice and Circle The Earth have both consistently been performing since the world found itself opening up once more. Dylan ‘n’ Alice appearing on the Billboard charts recently as well as Circle The Earth surpassing 1million hits on their latest release in lightning quick fashion. There’s an old saying that states that the best way to learn is to teach, and Kazuki seems to showcase this sentiment in spades as he moonlights as a guitar instructor and coach.

The passion expressed for the genre is not lost on Kazuki, as he’s handily garnered some very lucrative endorsements from GHS Strings and ESP guitars – one of the biggest guitar companies.
