Different Cloud is the solo musical project of French singer-songwriter Maxime Lefebvre. I recently heard his music on Bandcamp and was immediately impressed after my first listen to his six-track debut EP, simply entitled démo #1. Recorded over a two-month period in mid-2017, the original compositions on this EP sound much more like fresh, well-produced tracks than demos.

After you've finished reading this blog post about singer-songwriter-traveler, Mike Mentz, you'll have expanded your music vocabulary to include a new word: #travelpop.

"You can't help yourself" leads the chorus of the first track on Bryde's debut EP, simply titled "EP1". But my advice is that you really should help yourself to the four beautifully written and performed gems on this EP. On her Facebook page, Bryde (a.k.a.
