"Muzic Iz Life" has nuances of sounds, colors and soul. The delivery is sharp, yet inspirational; contemporary and authentic. From the first note of “I Wish You Well”, captures your worst memories of love lost, but it’s a journey you cannot refuse. This haunting ballad is reminiscent of Nancy Wilson or Etta James. Melodic and melancholy at the same time, “I Wish You Well” is classic R&B. If there is a meaning for the word music, “Muzic All Over the World” is the definition. The combination of sounds and instruments is a kaleidoscope, allowing you to travel without leaving your destination.
Strategically, there are creative vocals and instrumental blends throughout the "Muzic Iz Life" album; giving you a bowl of "muzical gumbo!"
