Review – “Tu Sabor” by Juliana
August 28, 2020 by Nolan Bellamy
Brainchild of the rising Latin band Juliana, John Stewart and his writing partner and bandmate Madeleine Kaye have just released a vibrant new track called “Tu Sabor”, translated meaning “Your Flavor.”
A project masterminded by Stewart, Juliana is an all-American Latin band including lead vocalist Madeleine Kaye, drums/percussionist Bob Ross, and John Stewart playing rhythm guitar. With none of the band members of Juliana having any Latin family ties it is remarkable what an authentic Latin sound they convey. The song itself is a rhythmic track full of bubbly dance and suggestive fun. Destined to be a pop hit “Tu Sabor” is one of several tracks the band has released.
John Stewart himself has a history in the entertainment industry. As a one of the most sought after film stuntmen, of which the movie “The Fall Guy” was modeled after him. As a director Stewart is credited for the direction of The Power Rangers and his work on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Action U.S.A. As a musician he wrote “Holding on to Memories that Will Never Be” which became the title song for “The Fall Guy.” His career began as a stuntman in Boston and he later became known for breaking records after falling 16 stories while on fire for the movie “Cold Steel.”
Currently based in Florida, Juliana continues to release Latin songs with heart and emotion. This is a band to watch because of their incredible ability to evoke a true Latin flavor. Their style is packed with passion and spirit and a refreshingly lively vibe…Kaye is an expert Latin vocalist and the band’s instrumentals are genuine.
