Danny Baxley mixes spoken poetry with dreamy pop on the beautiful “Crossed A Line”. Blurred grooves glide by with such grace over the course of the piece. Rhythms feel addictive in nature as they anchor the song’s more surreal aspects. Almost psychedelic at times the song seems to reflect upon modernity, on relationships, and the social norms that inform a person’s life. Lyrics rest at the very heart and center of the track, with the distorted vocals adding an important almost shoegaze element into the mix. By offering distant sounding vocals, Danny Baxley adds to the otherworldliness that informs the piece.
Everything starts immediately. Graceful guitar work adorns the track as the song unfurls with such style. Neatly tying together pop, alternative rock, with elements of dance thrown into the mix the song has a kaleidoscopic, all-encompassing sound to it. Volume is an absolute must for this is a song that should be felt as much as heard. Slowly but surely the song’s gradual buildup becomes ever larger, with the layers of sound swirling around in such a colorful display. Texturally rich, the way that Danny Baxley lets the melody neatly collide with this lyricism creates a song that positively teems with life. Towards the latter half of the song the piece’s mantra grows and grow until it becomes all consuming.
With “Crossed A Line” Danny Baxley creates an infectious, welcoming sound one whose ornate architecture draws the listener into a whole other world.

Professional Vocalist and Model, EveOnVox has enjoyed a career that spans over fifteen years. Starting out, C&C Music Factory selected Eve to tour as their lead vocalist after her powerful vocal audition beating out over 150 candidates. In 2003, Naked Music featured her softer tones on ‘Inside’, produced by Dave Warren, ‘A Beautiful Tomorrow’, and others produced by Blue Six. She has also shared the stage with Martin Luther McCoy, Caron Wheeler, and Japanese pop artist Toshi Kubota.
Eve has worked extensively as a model for such names as Nickelodeon where she posed as Cher’s body double, DKNY, Sony, Glamour Magazine and Rite Aid to name a few. She was the face of a 7UP national commercial, featured on The View, and has walked the runway in the Final Tributary Show in Milan for Gianni Versace shorty after his tragic death.
A resident New Yorker of Caribbean origin, from Roseau, Dominica, Eve consistently pours her passion into music as a vocalist and a songwriter leading her to launch her sound and message in a music production project called EveOnVox.
One by one Eve will be releasing a few tracks titled ‘Vent Songs’. The first release called Rough Time went through many renditions starting off as a Neo Soul, morphing into a pop RnB. Currently this live acoustic version with guitar/percussionist Guitaro 5000, brings a unique Rock/Funk sound to the song. Eve’s vocals are strong and vibrant. Rough Time is catchy enough to warrant a fourth or fifth listen.
The second song we listened to, ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’, is a bit sweet. There’s a touch of Reggae, but it has more of a Retro-Soul flavour. Eve’s vocals are mellow but strong with an intense drive behind them. The instrumental is smooth and relaxing containing every element of a hit soul single. Since You’ve Been Gone is a heartfelt song which truly showcases Eve’s passion and emotion.

“You say that people can’t change, For those they love I swear they can I’m so sorry babe, I wish I was a better man
