The Cameroonian-born singer known as Yolanda Arrey is a prominently featured artist on the new LP record from EA Music Group and mastermind musician Eliel Arrey. Yolanda Arrey happens to be the second Cameroonian-born talent holding nothing back as she steps unto the world stage on the track 'Your Highness.' The new long-playing album featuring Yolanda and other artists such as Nasomi, Steve Owner, and Melissa Otero, “The Essentials,” is available for download online [link provided below].
Early rumors of Yolanda's involvement in this full length album initially broke out in the February 2016 press release for Eliel Arrey's "End of Days" which listed her as a vocalist in EA Music Group. Eliel Arrey never responded to any comments in regards to the extend of Yolanda's collaboration and that was kept a mystery until now.
Something that certainly was not a mystery then or now, is Yolanda Arrey, the singer. Described in an article as "Salt Lake City's finest," Yolanda is no novice to the music scene. She has been singing and writing her own songs since she was seven years old and is well known by many Cameroonians around the world. She cites Whitney Houston as one of her main artistic influences, a singer well known for her strong vocal presence, an attribute that marks Yolanda's own style.
Another well known fact is her love for old school Jazz and Soul music. Her songs bring a soothing memory of what some would say 'real music used to be.' When asked about Yolanda, Eliel Arrey said "She is just too good. She gives her all into every song and her type of music definitely fits into what any would call the trademark 'Motown sound.''
Yolanda has been known to step out of the Jazz scene from time to time, making the idea of a collaboration with a near genre-free music composer such as Eliel Arrey not so far fetched. In December 2013, she collaborated with the acclaim rapper Prince of Cats on a Hip-Hop/Rap song titled "When You Loved Me." That magnificent piece was a success and garnered numerous audiences worldwide.
'Your Highness' is a track that demonstrates the evolution of both Eliel Arrey and Yolanda over the short courses of their musical careers:
- On the one hand, we see that Eliel Arrey is not shy to step away from his traditional EDM zone that has celebrated him for so long. Nor is he shy to step away from the new symphonic scene that seems to be his new identity. He demonstrates, with emphasis, that he can walk into a brand new universe and still keep us dancing. Time after time, Eliel Arrey has shown us he is "...broadly varied [and] emotionally evocative." McCauley 2016.
-On the other hand is the Diva in the room, Yolanda Arrey. Her works just never cease to amaze. Although she launches into the song with a soft and warm vocal, it does not take long for her to leap into her full range of strong natural tones and pitch perfect precision. The sweet, short, and catchy melodies of 'Your Highness' will keep many listeners hitting 'repeat' all year long. This song arguably might be this summer's most played anthem.
Like everything else we are presented with on 'The Essentials,' it is world-class writer McCauley who describes it best: "With nearly every emotional hue coloring this striking example of unbridled innovation and musical alchemy, it's improbable that the music fan won't hear himself in it somewhere." McCauley 2016.

The Cameroonian-born singer known as Nasomi is a prominently featured artist on the new LP record from EA Music Group and mastermind musician Eliel Arrey.
The Cameroonian-born singer known as Nasomi is a prominently featured artist on the new LP record from EA Music Group and mastermind musician Eliel Arrey. The new long-playing album featuring Nasomi, “The Essentials,” is already available for pre-order online [link provided below].
While Eliel Arrey's “The Essentials” has been garnering no end of attention from music lovers and game aficionados alike, Arrey himself stresses that Nasomi's performances are among the album's best qualities.
“Nasomi is definitely an artist I'd like to emphasize on my album,” writes Arrey, who is renowned for writing evocative, highly narrative compositions. “She is the lead singer on 'Rise,' 'Brand New Day/Dance with Me,' and 'Sunset Love 2.0.' Nasomi has one of the most powerful voices of any artist I know. She has the ability to listen to any melody I write and complement it with the perfect vocals. She is masterful at conveying emotions through music. Her lyrics have touched many souls and have inspired many people, including me.”
The Holland-based Nasomi cites as main artistic influences Toni Braxton and Aaliyah, two singers well loved for strong natural tones and a surgically precise pitch, both of which are marks of Nasomi's own style.
“Nasomi is an artist who takes her music very seriously and is one of the most hardworking people I know,” says Eliel Arrey. “She sets goals and executes on them. She puts a lot of effort and dedication in all her work. She has never been it for money or fame, she just loves to sing and loves music!”
Nasomi's first taste of fame came in 2012 when one of her underground singles, an original called “Whatever It Takes,” went viral on SoundCloud. Arrey heard the track and got in touch to suggest a collaboration. Today, he is proud to announce the three songs included on “The Essentials,” as well as several other tracks the duo will release later this year.
Since 2011 The “Whatever It Takes” singer-songwriter has performed at various events in the Netherlands and Germany, as well as at the 2012 Esamba Esamba festival in Belgium. “The Essentials” feat. Nasomi by Eliel Arrey is available online for pre-order worldwide now.

“The Essentials” feat. Nasomi –
Music has always been influenced by cultures. Every society/culture has a unique style to their music and different instruments trademark some cultures. Our album, "The Essentials," is meant to draw music lovers from all backgrounds, cultures, and styles. Our listeners will sometimes notice our use of a variety of instruments not conventionally used in your everyday music. From Bagpipes playing the African Cameroonian National Anthem, or Kalimbas laying the down the verses in Far Cry, to our rendition of the violins and woodwinds of the Celtic Hills. The Essentials is going to take every listener on an international journey. We hope that all our listeners can feel and appreciate the diversity we sought after when we compiled this album. Our vocalists are nothing short of world-class, featuring the powerful Dutch star artist -Nasomi, Salt Lake City's finest -Yolanda, internationally acclaimed songwriter and engineer -Steve Owner, and the extended instrumental rendition of Melissa Otero's "Angels and Demons." Our listeners will also notice that "The Essentials" contains songs from a variety of genres such as New Age, Modern Classical, Electro House, Dance, Hip-Hop, R&B, Orchestral, and World. We ourselves had a hard time picking what genre to list the overall album under. We also pay special tribute to the life and memory of the great movie score composer, James Horner. The entertainment world still mourns the loss of this legend and there exist a void that can never be filled.
Finally, we love the diversity of the tracks in the project as it symbolizes the diverse influences we have had in our lives and the different cultures that have influence us. Our goal is that everyone can find something they can relate to when they turn on this album. So much love and hard work has gone into this project, and it is our deepest honor to share this project with you and the rest of the world.

“This song was superb. I really liked the beat and the noise from the piano that was produced. I think the vocalist could be little softer as far as singing goes. The lyrics matched the tone of the music very well I wish there was some more harmony, maybe a second vocalist would be a nice touch to this song.”
“The fermata and the falsetto of the introdcution have a good sytle. I like the tone of the rest in the melody and the compostion. The interval between two notes are good and I like the fifth form of the singer. His pitch is very dynamic and I like the range of his acoustics and the vocalist. The fourth of the fugue and the dynamics of the harmony make a good compostion. The energetic rhythm of the composition and the harmonics are interesting. i like the grave tune and the solo accordance. The impromptu decision of the harmony and the chord progression in the notes and the keys were alright. The hymn and the melody are glissando and the notes are alright.”
“The intro is just so well performed that it has the biggest impact in the whole song. The tempo goes so well with the vibe of the song and it just makes you want to dance. The most well known artist is the very first to perform and have all of the character just to have a fresh, and original sound just to make the whole song very unique. The upbeat that they used in all of the verses and choruses are so wonderful and outstanding just to make the whole entire song just, more enjoyable and sound with a dynamic and with a lot of emotion relaxing. The challenging and creative side of the song is the instrumental, with the most wonderful background just to make the song very sunny. They have all of the right rhythm in there to not let the song get out of the right pitch. The artist has the greatest and most tuning natural voice that just makes him sing all of thosehighnotes.”

The digital music disc jockey known as DJArrey has released his new dance single, titled, “Night in Stockholm,” to broad fan and critical acclaim. The song is a melodic, synth-driven single with digitally orchestrated back beats and a bevy of striking effects. Its main chord progression is fun, catchy and powerful in its fugue-like presentation, very well implemented and as excellent for dancing in underground music clubs on Friday night as it is for night drives through the city. A song in the tradition of house music, it is unique in its subtler use of percussion, a style not often utilized in the subgenre of electronica music.
These traits set “Night in Stockholm” apart from many other dance singles, which is partially what DJArrey has been known for in his music. Arrey has been recognized for instrumentation that may include such unlikely elements as guitars, flutes, saxophones, and other brass instruments in his pieces. This highly personalized style of music production likely has its roots in West Africa, which is where DJArrey first grew up.
Arrey was born and raised in Cameroon. His first musical stint was as a performer in an a-cappella boys' group at the age of 12. He sang in this capacity for four years. In addition to being rated the #2 dance artist on Reverbnation.com, he is also studying to be a medical doctor with his graduation date set for 2017. At University of Texas, Arlington, he also is the founder and president of “Get More Out of College,” a non-profit institution providing free resources to college students worldwide who are studying the biological sciences.
Upon being asked what inspires him to create upbeat, delightful tracks like “Night in Stockholm,” Arrey says simply, “Making music ignites my spirit and reminds me of the beauty of life.”
“Night in Stockholm” is available online worldwide.
