Michaux - What's Going On ..........Still



"This record makes me feel like Michaux and the band are in my living room giving me a private concert, a very intimate experience"

"Michaux truly makes me believe in what hes saying. His voice speaks to me and the message is right on time"

Like all of us, Michaux has been affected by what's going on in the world today. His new record, "Whats Going On ... Still ..." deals with all the same issues Marvin did 39 years ago. Interestingly, not much has changed. We still have perpetuating wars, lack of jobs, deadly oil spills, poverty all over the world and this makes us all want to holler, or at least it should.

This music was recorded LIVE in England using vintage microphones and analog tape. No retakes, no computer magic here. This is real musicians playing together the way musicians used to play together before digital and computers. Many years ago, musicians and singers played and sang together in a room all at the same time and the engineer captured these moments and froze them in time. These are some of your favorite Soul and Jazz records from the 60s and 70s. (Source: CD Baby)

This is the Michaux experience. Enjoy!

1. God Is Love
2. Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)
3. Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)
4. What's Going On
5. What's Happening Brother
6. Do You Want To Know?

I played "God is love" on Saturday's show - 29th Jan. 2011. (a great remake). Track 1. runs into the second track, "Mercy Mercy Me

This is an excellent tribute set !

Joni NehRita - The Bare Truth



Joni’s sophomore release explores new textures and flits easily from sparse, open arrangements to densely layered ones which keeps listeners engaged. In the ways the fans expect, she makes Motown, funk, smooth, jazz, pop, and even a little rock feel at home side by side. She readily offers up her own imperfections, hopes, and fears and asserts that change and personal revolution are healthy, necessary even.

“NehRita’s music is classy, soulful, and sexy. She radiates the same on stage, engaging audiences with her stunning vocal work and originals”. – Carrie Humphries, Echo Magazine

“About 30 seconds into “A Fine Time” (debut release), I was pretty damned confident that Joni NehRita was the real deal.” – Addi Steward, Now Magazine (Source: CD Baby)

Another Great Contribution to start the New Year off!

Breeze - The Sound of Breeze



Naseem Murakami, stage name Breeze, derived from the term “Gentle Cool Breeze” which is the Arabic translation of her birth name, was born in Japan where she grew up in Tokyo. Exhibiting a love and talent for music at a very early age, Naseem’s Mother describes “When she was a toddler she was always singing and dancing in front of the TV as she watched star’s performing. We knew right away that we had a very talented daughter”.

Developing her passion for music as a young child, Breeze took classical piano lessons and was the keyboard player and a lead singer in her High School Band. She later worked as a professional singer and performer doing cover songs at night clubs. She also had her own band which performed at various venues and University festivals in Japan. In 1997 she decided it was time to take a serious step in her already-successful musical career when she moved to the United States taking her career determination and enormous talents with her. She currently resides and performs out of Southern California.

Once in the US, Breeze continued writing and performing her own brand of stylish Soul, R&B, and Jazz. Collaborating with many local artists and musicians along the way, they performed a wide variety of showcases and venues from Los Angeles to New York. She also caught the attention of a few established major record producers who wound up co-producing a lot of her demos.

Breeze cites many artists who have influenced her musical style and is quick to point out Anita Baker as her biggest influence since high school. Others include Dee Dee Bridge, Water, Ella Fitzgerald, George Benson, Earth Wind & Fire, Incognito, Tania Maria, Maxwell, Kem, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu. In the “Sounds Like” category, “Sade” is the overwhelming pick amongst her fans. When asked if her music comes from within or from what she observes around her, Breeze had no hesitation with her reply; “I believe that I’m just a receiver and a transmitter receiving inspiration from above. It's always a divine experience when it starts flowing into and out of me”.

In 2009 Breeze was discovered by Smooth Jazz artist, a French guitarist U-Nam who‘s known by his #1 hit single “Street Life”. Breeze was invited as a guest performer on U-Nam’s shows performing along with the world class musicians here in Southern California. Most recently in 2010 her TV appearance on Wake Up! TV. Breeze performed live with her band and it is currently airing on Transit TV, Los Angeles and Pasadena Community Network, Pasadena, CA.

This young talented artist’s one desire as a live performer and recording artist is her sincere wish to make her audience feel uplifted, inspired and just plain old feeling-good after leaving a “Breeze” performance. Apparently DJ Big Cal of Radio station WGBB 1240 AM in Long Island, New York agrees that her music does just that -- having given this opulent young artist the honor of airplay on his popular local radio show.

When asked if she could have increasing commercial success and still retain her artistic integrity, Breeze states, “Being true to my self is very important to me and something that I will not give up -- even if I am missing out on some huge opportunity”.

Aside from being a very talented singer/songwriter and live performer, Breeze’s other passion is in humanitarian missions which include active involvement and volunteering in the local and international communities. She continues to envision with her philanthropic mission through her music. (source: CD Baby)

This album introduces a new twenty-two year old artist named Mara Hruby from Oakland, CA. She arrived on the scene at the start of 2010, playing shows throughout the Bay Area, and is releasing her debut EP, From Her Eyes. Mara has worked on this album for the past nine months; she has applied her multi-talented dedication to recording, arranging, and engineering her own work. She has performed on stage, dancing and backing other artists in the Bay Area; unconsciously preparing herself for this path. She has chosen to speak through music in order to connect with those of us who love music.

During an interview with a local entertainment magazine, Mara was asked to describe her sound: “My sound/style comes from what I have experienced in life. I feel my sound is organic, distinct, melodic, eclectic, and filled with sensitivity. To say the least, I’d call my music a melodic melting pot.”

The current practice of recording “covers” of well known music by well loved artists, has led to some very creatively unique results. The surprise breakthrough of Les Nubians’ version of Sade's mellow and soulful ballad, "The Sweetest Taboo," helped their American debut album, Princesses Nubiennes, to achieve a higher position on the Billboard charts than any other French-language album had in the previous decade.

These seven tracks represent the genesis of the view “From Mara’s Eyes” of the various works of her favorite male artists. Each song is connected to a memory experience in Mara’s young life. The beauty and elegance of Van Hunt’s “Character,” Bob Marley’s love of Jah, Mos Def’s soulful poetry, André “3000” Benjamin’s “Take Off Your Cool,” as well as D’Angelo’s “Send It On” – are all examples of art forms from today’s exceptional musicians.

Mara Hruby is a mesmerizing artist who performs on stage with poise and grace. You will be surprised to discover how naturally her music will enter your heart.

In a musical wasteland crowded with posers, gimmick peddlers and rump-shaking pop tarts, singer, songwriter and vocal arranger LeNora Jaye stands out like a luxuriant diamond amongst the ashes. Possessing a soul-sweetened voice that evokes the magic of the 70s & 80's, LeNora’s original songs reconcile old skool R&B, street-wise funk and velvety Adult Contemporary soul, while her deep-felt lyrics capture the essence of modern femininity in all its wondrous complexity -- independent yet nurturing, strong yet alluringly vulnerable, cautious, yet capable of wild-eyed impulsiveness. Formerly the lead female vocalist for the Black Rock Coalition band Rhythm Republik, LeNora has opened shows for the esteemed likes of Teena Marie, The Meters, Roger Troutman & Zapp and Roy Ayers, while her solo career has found her sharing stages with some of the classiest names in hip hop, pop and soul, including The Roots, Floetry, India.Arie, Amel Larrieux and others.

Now, with the release of her independently produced solo debut album, the talented Ms. Jaye officially steps onto the world stage, with magnificent results. Featuring 16 original compositions and interludes, The Story is an answered prayer for the legions of doubters who thought they couldn’t write and sing ‘em like they used to. Assisted by a bevy of skilled co-producers including Steve Wallace, Thierry DeJean, Armand Tulumello (Astral22), indie-soul star Angela Johnson and Jonathan Lloyd & Douglas Glover (NewBlackMusic.Net), The Story heralds the arrival of a truly unique singer-songwriter. Asked if there is a theme to the album, LeNora contemplates for a moment, then replies matter-of-factly. “It’s a woman’s experience… an young urban woman’s experience.”

While The Story may chronicle the experience of a young woman, there’s no denying the album’s universal appeal. Discerning music lovers will relate to LeNora’s singular perspectives on life, love and sexual politics, not to mention her enviable ability to convey dignity without ever crossing over into finger-wagging preachiness. As its literary title suggests, The Story is an assemblage of revealing musical chapters authored by a truth-seeking artist.

With the long-awaited arrival of her solo debut album, fans can finally experience the performing magic of LeNora Jaye in their everyday lives. But for LeNora herself, the album symbolizes the realization of a lifelong dream. With its soul-stirring original songs and peerless vocals and performances, The Story marks the auspicious beginning of a recording career that promises to influence the shape of R&B to come.

“From the start, I always wanted to make sure that whatever I did was real and true to who I was,” LeNora says, earnestly. “That certainly applies to this record. I love these songs 100 percent, because I feel them 100 percent.” (Source: CD Baby)

Emily King





Emily King - Down


You know how sometimes we mention that we're completely shocked that an act is unsigned? You know how sometimes this shock turns to excitement that because they're unsigned, we can write about them? Yeah, that's happening right now times ten. Native New Yorker Emily King, is one of those rare industry gems that's just oozing with raw talent. She doesn't need lights, auto tune or pyrotechnics to sell records. Nope, all Emily needs to win over an audience is her insanely captivating vocals paired with her delicate and feminine songs.

But, in the spirit of full disclosure we feel it's important to you that at one point, Emily was signed. And we're not talking about a tiny indie label either; we're talking about J records which is home to recording artists like Fantasia, Jamie Foxx and Alicia Keys. In 2007, Emily's critically acclaimed debut album East Side Story was released. Her first single "Walk In My Shoes" (later re-released to include a verse by rapper Lupe Fiasco) didn't place high on the charts. But for true King fans, the song was a great introduction to Emily's talents and more importantly was a window into the themes and social issues which inspired Emily's writing. But, in typical major label fashion, slow album sales trumped the actual music and shortly after her release, King was dropped from her label. "I'm better without the label," says King. "It's like when you hear people say they're glad they went through something because they've learned lessons from it. There are some decisions I would have made differently but whatever. It doesn't make me anti music industry. I've grown up, it's all good."

While J records may have overlooked King's talent, the Grammy's certainly did not. Yes, you heard right. We said, The Grammys. In December of 2007, King's debut East Side Story was a nominee for Best Contemporary R&B Album. That same year, King embarked on a national tour with John Legend. "The John legend tour was great" King remembers. "My band mates were amazing and we laughed the entire time." So what does an extremely talented and driven Grammy nominee do when she's dropped from her label? Her own (and may we say, amazing) thing. Happier than ever, King is a staple at local venues in her hometown of NYC and has plans to release a new album independently in 2011. While we've only heard three songs from the new album, from what we can tell it's incredible and certain major label is going to be eating their words...very soon.

Intrigued and want to hear more? Check her out on emilykingmusic.com or on MySpace and of course you can follow her on Twitter. (source:www.seventeen.com

U Turn Project - Next Event!!!

Andr'e Muhammad "Over And Over"





Andre' Muhammad - Get Up

This is the sophomore release for this artist. Spiritually conscious lyrics meets a "neo-soul" feel that he calls "Rhythm & Peace (R&P). Dre' proves with this CD that his grooves and messages in his lyrics lifts the spirit and feeds the soul.
(source: CD Baby)

Andre Muhammad: Bio : Source: http://soulfeederrecordings.com/?section=bio

It was the summer of 1991 and Andre' was the co-lead vocalist for the group trio "Brother 2 Brother". They were on the verge of securing a record deal with EMI Records. A showcase performance at Cotton Row Studio in Memphis, TN would determine if they had a deal.

Andre' had been listening to audio taped messages of the Hon. Louis Farrakhan since the summer of 1990 and began visiting the Nation of Islam's local Mosque #55 that same year. He told the group that if they didn't get signed that day he was leaving to clean his life up and return to his spiritual roots. After the performance EMI Records decided that the group needed to make a few minor changes in production and art direction before they'd sign them. Andre' walked out of Cotton Row Studio, to the church, and never looked back.

He still loved music and desired to record, so he joined a local gospel choir, "The Angelic Voices Of Faith". The choir recorded with gospel great Keith Pringle, and Andre sang and co-wrote lyrics for the Choir's debut album "A Gift To You". The message of the Hon. Louis Farrakhan was still burning in Andre's consciousness, and his desire to learn more led him to join the N.O.I. (Nation of Islam) in September 1993. He put his music and recording aspirations down for the profound truths he was learning and the mission of the N.O.I.

In 2005 at the Million Family March the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan established 9 (nine) Ministries, one of which is the " Ministry of Arts & Culture". Andre' realized that he could be of service in that ministry and began building his studio, producing his own tracks, and writing songs based on the new perspective he'd gained from what he was learning as a Muslim in the N.O.I.

On Feb. 26, 2007, after nearly 14 years away from music, Andre' released his first CD "Rhythm Of The Truth" on CDBaby.com. Andre's first CD was inspired by his role on the "Tsunami Prayer Line" during Ramadan 2006, where Muslims from around the U.S. and parts of the world called in every morning @5am EST to pray for the Hon. Louis Farrakhan's recovery from his illness. Andre' opened the prayer line with the Muslim Adhan (call to prayer) and Al Fatiha. Andre's rendition of Adhan and Al Fatiha, entitled "Prayer Time", is available for FREE DOWNLOAD on this website.

Due to the spiritually uplifting content, born out of the experience of being "enlightened", Muhammad doesn't classify his music as R&B (Rhythm & Blues). He places his music in the newly created genre of "R&P" (Rhythm & Peace). This talented artist writes, arranges, produces, records, engineers, and publishes his own music. Andre' is a completely independent artist. Muhammad scores with a fresh sound and insightful lyrics that leaves the listener uplifted and enlightened.
