daRome Bentley "Ever Endeavor"
Ryan J. Fleming

Oklahoma native, daRome Bentley moved to Atlanta to pursue his dream of being a recording artist. Becoming a finalist at the Georgia Music Industry Association Songwriting Competition as well as the International Songwriting Competition, that dream came to fruition. This soul crooner has worked his magic onstage at various Atlanta music hubs such as The Apache Café and The Earth Link Live, and has been afforded the opportunity to open for such acts as Joe, Next, and K-Ci and JoJo. All of that hard has paid off in dividends, as he has recently his own solo release, Ever Endeavor.daRome’s Ever Endeavor proves once again that good R & B is not dead, and today’s gems with the music industry are being found more and more in the independent arena. The 12-track soul collection opens with “Back When,” which has that Mario Winans-type feel as daRome remembers back when life was good. He also shows off his pleasant harmonies and chord changes with this track. An album highlight is the song entitled “Beauty (your smile).” Within this track, daRome’s overall sound really opens wide with the full, layered harmonies and robust vocalizations. Another strong selection is the duet dubbed “Collide”, which features a vocal assist from Bernard Jackson. daRome shows that even though he sharing the microphone, he knows how to blend his vocal stylings with others, as well as come to the forefront of a track. Other notable tracks include “Aboutchu” and “Can I know U?”For more information on this burgeoning soul singer, please go to his official website at: www.daromebentley.com. I am sure that daRome will stay on the grind, so his Ever Endeavors will soon be a pleasure for many.

DJ Random Reviews on new Music and DVD's available right now at Earwax Legend: 5 Ears = Classic, 4 Ears = Hot, 3 Ears = Not bad, 2 Ears =Aiight, 1 Ear = Wack...Don't waste ya $$$!!


R&B: Folks, don't be fooled by the major radio stations and the stuff they force-feed the masses. There are some great Indies (independent artists / labels) out there who are putting out great music! One such talent is newcomer daRome Bentley. His new release (on the Soulective Enterprise label) titled "Ever Endeavor" is straight up hot. daRome combines a smooth voice with top-notch production and gives you simply good music. Right off the top, on 'Back When', he reminisces about days gone by. (Check the piano lick on this joint!) Other hot tracks include Café, 'Spiritual Healin' and 'Baby aint". Another burner is 'Aboutchu', that has a contemporary beat, yet an old school Stevie Wonder feel to it! Last, my two favorites are 'Beauty (your smile)' and 'Brown Like Hennesy'. 'Beauty', to me, is a great song in that it goes against standard convention with its dissonant chords, yet pulls it off very nicely. Then, 'Brown' (despite the title being somewhat juvenile, i.e., "you remind me of my jeep") relays a good message and shows that you can describe or compliment someone without today's seemingly obligatory body part examination. It will be a shame if this CD doesn't make a commercial splash, but don't let that deter you from adding some very good music to your collection from a strong, young artist!
