DUCKWRTH - THE FALLING MAN
âArtist of multiple mediums and LA native DUCKWRTH has released his second studio album, THE FALLING MAN. The eight-song project begins with a sultry track with passionate vocals quickly turning into a rap verse that sets the tone for the rest of the album. FALL BACK wastes no time in picking up the energy with distorted 808âs and a fiery verse that fades into a Frank Ocean-esque refrain calling on the listener to âsettle downâ. NOBODY FALLS is a fantastically produced song alternating between a bouncy bassline and an ethereal vocal performance from Kiana LedÃ©. This is the first of two tracks produced by electronic musician Medasin, the second being the next song, LOVE IS LIKE A MOSHPIT, a song with a self-explanatory refrain and a feature from Rico Nasty that is far more melodic than her typical abrasive sound. SOPRANO follow suit with most songs on the album by surprising the listener. Starting off light and airy, the track suddenly shifts into an upbeat, mosh-pit worthy rap song. Legendary producer Mr. Carmack also graces the album on a penultimate track full of rock star vocals and fuzzy guitars. Overall a fantastic and diverse sophomore project for the rising star.

"Outside of the working world, music is something I invest a lot of time in, in more ways than one. I could spend hours on my SoundCloud timeline, Apple Music, or YouTube discovering new artists to listen to and enjoy. I have channeled this love into brief music reviews that can be found in the appropriate part of this website, and more recently, the First State Studios website. I have also begun to produce music myself, learning the ins and outs of Ableton, Serum, Audacity, and other necessary software, and it still remains one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. It has sparked a love for learning new technologies and software and is something I hope to continue to grow with. I feel that my lifelong interest in the technical side of creative arts combined with my newfound analytical knowledge combine perfectly to serve me well in the marketing and advertising realm."
