Twenty-two year old Nick Price grew up singing classical music and performed in several operas, with the Canadian Opera Company, before realizing his passion was in contemporary Soul. He grew up in Toronto, studied music at Berklee College of Music (Boston) and moved out to L.A. where he currently resides. With a steady diet of Motown, R&B, Jazz and Neo-Soul, Nick started to shape his sonic vision, which is now coming to fruition with the release of his debut song “Naked Souls“. Max Bryk and Andris Mattson, from Moonchild, are responsible for the production and it’s and honor for us to exclusively premiere this in Europe. Please enjoy an amazing introduction in the form of a free download. Care, share and play everywhere!
Fatima‘s debut album is on it’s way. We’ll have to wait till May 12th for “Yellow Memories” to drop, but this brand new song here will hold you over. Best believe that “Ridin Round” (Sky High) produced by Scoop DeVille is on that bounce tip. Go ahead and pre-order some vinyl if you want to be an early bird and catch that funky worm.
It’s been a while, but today I learned that Moonchild (the trio coming out of L.A.) released another quality album. For those that know about “Be Free”…you are going love their new adventure entitled “Please Rewind”. I never thought I’d appreciate this one as much as their previous album, but I do! Super soulful and jazzy with soothing vocals from the lovely Amber. Something you should definitely get comfy to and purchase.
On my early morning music stroll today, I came across a beautiful young lady that goes by the name of May. I think she’s from Germany originally, but moved to Belgium not too long ago. Couldn’t find a lot of info on miss May, but I do know that I really like FloFilz‘s remix for her song entitled “Soul”. Her debut EP is scheduled for May, so stay tuned!
Man did we miss the boat on this Gwen Bunn joint, “Turn The Lights Out”! Luckily for us (and you) our buddy Front2blaq tipped us on this female singer-songwriter/producer from Decatur, who was an alumni of Berklee College of Music. Five years ago this young lady asked herself who she was and what her purpose was. She asked herself those questions and answered through song. The result…“The Verdict”.
Last month Ruth Koleva released her “R U T H” album produced by Seravince. Heard a few tracks of that one, but it never found it’s way to my inbox. No worries though, because what did make it to my HD is Eric Lau‘s remix of “Turn This Around” which is available as a free download on Ruth’s Soundcloud page. Enjoy this one!
In an era of constant change it brings me joy to hear something fresh yet recognizable. Slakah the Beatchild has is back with “Soul Movement” Vol. 2 and believe you me, it’s well worth $12.99! The mature sultry sound of “Adventure For 2” will soothe the ear of many women. Whereas the fellas will most definitely love the reminiscent “Where’s Yesterday” where truth is told with rhymes like ‘the people are dying for something different’. Ain’t got nothing more to say other than BUY yourself some quality Soul music and support the real!
