It is February 2nd 2014 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
"Since Ren Patrick (vocals / guitar) and Adam James (drums) can remember, they knew they were meant to be stars; meant to create music that will last a lifetime. The dynamic duo have never doubted their potential, even long before they ventured to Los Angeles, California to start Stamps."
I recently ran across Stamps as I was sifting through messages and re-tweets on the Basement Entertainment Twitter account. I stumbled upon their name, through another artist, listened to [just] one song, and instantly began my search for more of their music.
"Ren Patrick, the young, aspiring Texan starlet, connected creatively and personally with the band's charming and talented Chicago-bred drummer, Adam James. They toured the nation, mingled with stars, met music companies, all the while, Stamps was shifting and evolving into an entirely new band and genre. The once 'indie-rockers' found themselves writing modern, electro/pop music and couldn't have been happier."
On July 10th 2011, Stamps released their debut EP, titled Ventures Of A Lifetime, to their iTunes page. And, since then, the band has consistently been releasing new, and fantastic, music for their fans. Plus, alongside their iTunes releases, this duo love taking to their official Youtube Channel with new videos and cover songs, including an acoustic song called If It Were Up To Me, which is earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
The video for If It Were Up To Me was posted to Stamps' Youtube Channel on February 6th 2013. And, with its six thousand views, comes nothing but positive comments and reviews...literally.
Beyond Stamps' remarkable, and professional, sound, Ren Patrick's vocal abilities will always leave you speechless. And, her unbelievable vocals can definitely be heard in the video for If It Were Up To Me.
"Stamps brings brash honesty and personal stories to topnotch musical craftsmanship, writing their own songs, performing their own instruments and defining a style that is, appropriately, all their own."
So, Stamps is clearly one heck of a talented band. Their music will draw you in instantly, plus, their clear passion and talent is endless. These two have earned this week's 'Song of the Week' with their original song, If It Were Up To Me.
Be sure to find your way over to Stamps' official Youtube Channel immediately. And, of course, while you are there, please check out the acoustic video for this week's 'Song of the Week', If It Were Up To Me, which can be seen here:
See you [once again] next Sunday for the next 'Song of the Week' addition to Basement Entertainment's official website. Before then, please give Stamps a listen and see just what has me addicted to this very talented duo.
