LaVoyce: The Voice Worth Listening To

“There’s this Album Release Party tonight. You down?”

It goes without question that I was. It doesn’t take much to get me out of the house these days, especially where the promise and enticement of good music is involved. Little did I know that good music is not what I’d be walking into, rather, what I’d be walking into was an all-encompassing performance of great music! Front and center of the stage stood, Dallas, TX.’s very own professional, R&B singer and songwriter, Demi LaVoyce, who at the time, was providing a synopsis of her new song, “Invisible,” before playing it for the audience. It goes without saying that the beautifully talented artists’ music kept every head in the room nodding to her rhythmic melodies. LaVoyce’s newly released album, Bloom, can best be described as a soulfully vivid portrayal of her personal experiences with the good and bad aspects of relationships, bringing the listeners along for the roller-coaster ride, that is a great relationship turned sour, writing about the high points of falling in love, the low points of falling out of love, and the transitioning point of being more than fine alone, with a new sense of confidence and a fresh outlook on life.

LaVoyce, who is classically trained and very well versed across the board in Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop vocals, and Gospel, has been both, singing and writing songs since the age of seven. This musical experience was more than exemplified as she wrapped up the night by performing “Juice,” the final song of her album. The two songs that caught my attention, and favor were “Lions & Tigers,” and “In my Bag” (with “In my Bag” being my absolute number one). I feel personally inspired and thankful for having the opportunity to have heard this budding star’s debut album, and am proud to proclaim that I am a Demi LaVoyce fan. If you too want to join this wave of fandom, then for sure go on any streaming platform (Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, etc.) and purchase/stream Bloom.
