Montasia Breathe New Life Into A 1966 Hit Single

Reading, England – September 24, 2019 – Longtime friends and music partners Chris Emerson and Donald Poole are making waves as the EDM duo Montasia with their genre-fusing signature style that has critics and fans alike raving, especially over their latest single, “Sunny.”

For those thinking “Sunny” sounds a little familiar, that’s because it was a hit a Billboard hit back in 1966. Montasia wanted to bring the song into the 21st century. So they gave it a Montasia modern makeover! Perhaps the 2019 version of “Sunny” will find its way onto the Billboard Chart once again. It wouldn’t be the first time Montasia had a hit on their hands. Chris Emerson found himself with a Billboard smash with “All Because of You” in recent years.

Review – Sense the World
Every few years those of us who enjoy Americana/Folk music are treated to a new album from Walt Cronin. He is the everyman musician, singing about real people and real emotions. This new album is no exception. For me, this is great rainy-day music. Music to make you think. Music to make you feel. And once again, he has topped all his previous work. Give this a listen. You’ll be glad you did.

NEVER GOING TO LOSE-SEAN POLUK

NEVER GOING TO LOSE, new blues roots release by Sean Poluk

Never Going To Lose is an exciting refreshing take on the blues genre. It is a whole new wave of blues-roots americana all rolled into a engaging new way of presenting something that is fresh and interesting.


This release is going to be definitely pushing the envelope of roots blues to a whole other level. Sean Poluk has in some ways re-invented the acoustic blues vibe and this cd stands out as an example for those who should follow in Sean Poluk's footsteps and step outside to the uncharted territory of the new wave of doing acoustic roots blues. This release has a twist of imagination and experimentation not yet seen in your typical blues genre, whether electric or acoustic.


This is a whole new genre of music that has been discovered, crafted and developed by all the musicians who participated in this endeavor.
Never Going To Lose release captures ones imagination as you journey from song to song with Sean as he shares his thoughts in song,it is a trip of special significance, like a trip to be remembered every time you listen.


Never Going to Lose elevates the listeners expectations and wonderment from one song to the next. Never Going To Lose is a stunningly well crafted group of songs, expertly produced and engineered. The songs are tastefully crafted with well appointed backing vocals, harmonies and wonderful instrumentation. The heart of the matter though is in the messages within the songs, the lyrical content is strong and the singing of Sean Poluk provides and captures a mood of reflection and appreciation for life. The songcrafting is wonderful. The Slide Guitar and Dobro work by Sean adds a special colour and vibrancy and it is done in such a seasoned and expert manner. Never Going to Lose is a roots blues americana vibe that will have you coming back many times to experience a special memorable journey again and again

"Love it! I enjoyed the fierce spirit of perseverance in this, the willingness to just keep GOING. It’s beautiful!" ~ Mary Gauthier


Walt Cronin is an exceptional songwriter with a keen sense of history and a pertinent perspective. It’s a skill set that’s paid off well, making it little wonder that his four previous albums have secured placement on the Americana, folk, and crossover country charts. A singer who possesses a rich baritone -- think Johnny Cash sitting at the poker table with Nick Cave -- he gives his songs a gravitas that resonates with depth and meaning. Indeed, he now has a cause to which he can dedicate his energies and intents, that being Veterans for Peace, an organization that connects to his previous experience as a navy medic attached to a contingent of marines in Vietnam.
Not surprisingly then, the songs on Sense the World reflect a heartfelt determination and shameless sincerity that reflects well on the sentiment and. heartbreak that any road weary troubadour deals with on an ongoing basis. It’s an affecting mix, from the emotional conflict inherent in “Tumble Me Down and “Try To Be Kind” to the grit and gravitas resonating through touching “Way Back Home,” the decidedly dark sway of “Dancin’ Girl,” the tempered honkytonk imbued in “All These Things” and the simmering sobriety of “We Go On.” Cronin creates a brooding sort of balladry, one that reaches full flourish on “We Were Young Then,” the sobering song that caps this set.
Still, for all his melancholia and decidedly dry disposition, Cronin clearly comes across as an artist who knows how to make music that’s consistent in its appeal and universal in its reach. He draws from a rich tonal tapestry, but the heartbreak and happenstance find a common contemporary connection. The end result is a riveting effort that’s both timeless and temporal, one that plumbs the depth of his soul but invites his listeners to share his deliberations. That alone makes Sense the World all the more universal.
