Singer/songwriter Vince Grant is not afraid to take on one of the worlds most debilitating concerns, Depression. With his music he faces the disease head on and expresses so many things that may be tough for others to express.

Depression and other forms of mental illness incapacitates millions every year. With the economy crisis, war, and other human battles it is, in some instances, expected. Vince Grant, through his honesty and passionate expression of the illness has given us a tool to use to help battle that demon.

The lead single, “Melancholia” is powerful and enlightening. The instrumentals on this song are chilling. Vocals are raw and true. Great job.

Stream the full EP privately at Soundcloud:

This album is a personal testament, an open journal of a persons battle through a major mental health disorder. One that is frightening and one that does not discriminate by age, gender, or nationality. This album, this music, this collection of lyrics and magic, is outstanding. Reminiscent of REM, Manic Street Preachers, and Elliott Smith, you’ll find solace in the words and strength in the message.

There are two video’s for your enjoyment “Melancholia” and “How Many Times You”…both produced by famed director Alex Nasonov. This is an exceptional expression of personal struggle.

This album is a dedication to healing and Vince has done an amazing job of putting it together and his lyrics will pull you in and open your eyes to things you may have just pushed aside but need to face.

Touching, with deep emotions, and a rare look into “real life”….”My Depression Is Always Trying to Kill Me” talks about recovery, drugs, alcohol, and how life is meant to be lived with passion and zest, not buried under pain and loss.

Music video

This album “My Depression Is Always Trying to Kill Me” includes 5 free flowing unique songs. All telling a story meant to inspire. After working a succession of dead end jobs he finally fell to the depths of drug and alcohol imprisonment. A horrible place to be that derailed him from his other passion, music. Now not only was his passion for life falling away, his passion for music was also fading fast.

Determined to make a difference Vince sat down and penned five earth moving songs that will not only inspire you to take charge of your own life but they will inspire you to help others.

Outstanding job and congratulations to Vince Grant for stepping outside the norm, outside the box and taking hold of reality in this winning collection.

A glimmer, a shimmer, a shining constellation, that’s what you find with Sir Cadian Rhythm. What a galactic experience and more with this dynamite self titled new album.

No holds bared these guys are the real deal with meaning and purpose in their music. This Long Island alternative rock/jazz/pop quintet are exceptional. With a diverse set of talented performers. From theatrical performers to poets, from music teachers to graduates of Julliard, this is one amazingly talented mix of award winning inspirations.

With the combination of such diverse backgrounds, styles, and interpretations the scale from classical and jazz to funk, rock, pop and metal is infinite.

Check out Sir Cadian Rhythm in full here at Soundcloud:

Having been compared to Maroon 5, Incubus, and Radiohead you would think these guys would be boastful, on the contrary, these guys are confident and secure in who they are and what they want to accomplish in their music.

I loved “Holly’s on Fire” it reminded me of actually Los Lonley Boy’s at the beginning. The jive, the jazz makes you move. Classic. Loved the pipes. This self titled album just recently released in February of this year has already perked the attention of avid listeners from coast to coast.

Track #4 “Run Around Town” has almost an ethereal feel. Moving and steady with a deep warmth inside. Eternal. Love the drummer, Sir Keith Miller. Perfect timing.

A five piece band from Long Island, New York ; Sir Cadian Rhythm… have created a masterpiece of eclectic versatility in this new EP. The vast and unique difference have melded together to create such an explosive and yet tranquil collection of gold.

This group consist of the following exceptional talents:

Sir Jack Weppler – Vocals from space, Sir Alex Laudani – electric magic on the Guitar, Sir Richard Cluxton – with heart thumping Bass, Sir Keith Miller – timeless Drums, and magic fingers on the keys, Sir Matthew Carlin. These make up none other than Sir Cadian Rhythm……………
