Maylee Todd – “Escapology” (Audio)

Lp Cover_Select2Ask and you shall receive. Maylee Todd, Canadian singer has just dropped her second solo LP Escapology on Do Right Music. With the release of the “Hieroglyphics” single February 2012 led to remixes by Tall Black Guy and Kong & the Gang. Last December, Maylee dropped “Baby’s Got It” catching the attention of MeLo-X, Green Linez, and Martino for remixes, which will release next week. On Escapology, there is a sense of experience, experimentation, ambition, and relaxation. The two standout songs on the LP are, “I Can’t Stand It” with its beautiful strings and the echoing guitar on “I Tried.” Maylee and a cast of over 15 musicians rock with a unique vocal phrasing and a solid groove that gives each tune a flow that is uncommon in most love songs today. One of my favorite things about the record as a whole is its diversity in the mood, color, and tone of the songs chords. There are a lot of ideas thrown in there sonically from sweet harps, to lasers, trumpets, and a bluesy trombone. The only thing we can do now after supporting this latest effort is to see her live. Escapology is available for purchase on Maylee’s website. But before you head over there, check out “I Can’t Stand It” and “I Tried” below. Enjoy!
