I really like the way she is positive and brings incredible vocals in the midst of the very shy, yet captivating instrumental, taken by the rhythm of acoustic guitars and powerful drums.

“SOUND MAGAZINE – The first thing that cause my attention was the singer’s voice because it starts as a great surprise start of the song. I like how the ensemble of this song is created base on the singer’s voice followed by the beat of the guitar. Although the stringing of the guitar is very simple and repetitive throughout the song, the voice of the singer covers and makes it stand out even more.”

“RADIO FM STEREO – This song had a really upbeat sound to it. It was almost a California soft rock meets blue grass reggae. I haven’t heard a mix like this, it was very groovy. I think the singers voice had a unique sound to it as well. Although he sang higher (and hit the notes rather well) it sounded like he had potential to sing lower as well. The lyrics were very positive about love, too. This was a good song.”

“POP&ROCK SONG REVIEWS – Shapely put together instruments with the vocalist. Very warm and appealing in confidence. Inspiring in lyrics and emotion. The vocalist had a very relaxing voice and kept you interested into the lyrics. Punchy and fun sounding song with a great message. Rhythmic sound through out the entire song. Was lacking some extra energy. But it had a very relaxing and soothing feel to it. Kind a soft rock sound to it. The artist accomplished what they were trying to get across”

“MUSIC PLAYER EDICTION – Alluring, graceful, and engaging definitely sums up the vocal of the artist. He have a good soothing voice that is befitting of the song. The melody is pleasing to the ear and goes well with this tone of voice. His lyrics are sweet and he do a good job expressing his emotions through his voice.”
– MUSIC PLAYER EDICTION, review “You and me” (Dec 17, 2018)

“DR SOUND MAGAZINE – This track is excellent! The different instruments combined create a dreamy sort of background. Everything is sin high quality, and the mixing is nothing shy of pristine. The singer-although enshrouded with an accent-pushes the limits of highs and lows. His voice fits the track really well. The message is lighthearted and uplifting. This song seriously has potential. All the instruments and lyrics add to create a beautiful song about finding love.”

by “Taesean”

“Review of “My lady” by gabrielesaro 4.5 I like the intro and the voice so far; the melodic line of the voice is good, the verse is infact catchy and well arranged, the bridge is ok for a great refrain very melodic and catchy; well done, a good song! When a melody or something in the song keeps the mind of the listener , it is the most important thing, because he then say “i buy”; i feel your song, good luck and keep it up the good work”

The videoclip, made with the collaboration of producer and director Mark Stuart, with an incisive and direct approach, celebrates the importance of the message of peace contained in Charlie Chaplin’s speech taken from the film “The great dictator”

Arpa D. describes his single as follows: “The words of Charlie Chaplin’s monologue taken from the film” The Great Dictator “have always struck me deeply, to the point that I wanted to create a pop composition that lent itself, with music and words, to a real enhancement of the message of peace, hope, anti-violence, freedom and anti discrimination of race, sex and religion contained in it. We thus wanted to create a tribute to one of the most famous cinematographic speeches of all time, to a hymn to universal peace and to an anti-discrimination cry that still today, unfortunately, seems to remain completely unheard ”
