Play 90 second soundbite of 'Keep Pushing On' @ 'CD quality'
'Keep Pushing On' is blessed with all the 'normal' pre-requisites associated with the modern R&B form; it's catchy, bright, airy and extremely well crafted. Deeyana oozes vocal confidence and maturity and shows she's got what it takes to be at the top of her game. Brilliant for the dance floor as well as for the more intimate moments, 'Keep Pushing On' packs a wonderfully sensitive punch. Punctuated by a percussive backdrop born out of hand-claps and with a sensitively subdued 'orchestral' backdrop and the inclusion of some very tasty Deeyana saxophone, 'Keep Pushing On' is remarkably ezy on the ear, stunningly commercial and, for me, right 'on the money'. Deeyana has a wonderfully sexy vocal intonation and she delivers this song with massive professionalism. 'Keep Pushing On' by Deeyana is everything it needs to be and everything you'd want it to be! Fanbloodytastic!!
And wow, 'Keep Pushing On' is supported by 'Goddess Nyx' a wonderfully rich sounding saxophone instrumental very much in the David Sanborn sound and style; sexy, vibrant, jazzy yet soulful - a crackin' 'B' side that demonstrates Deeyana's all-round musical prowess - hey, this girl's bloody good!
'Keep Pushing On' by Deeyana sounds like a real winner to me - radio 'jocks' should absolutely love it and their support will play a big part in the future of Deeyana and her beautifully sensitive and mature music. It aint difficult to see the potential here and I can see nothing but massive success coming Deeyana's way! 'Keep Pushing On' by Deeyana, in any musical scenario, in any place in the world, is the bee's knees - exceptional stuff from someone who is clearly destined for massive things.
