We love Maysa and are digging on A Woman in Love, which features Will Downing and a surprising cover of Michael Jackson's "Lady in My Life." While there is always the strong preference to hear her rich vocals on CD accompanied by the wonderific Incognito whenever new music from her is released, her solo work is always magic by itself. This romantic collection is just perfect for Valentine's Day. Read More HERE
Julie Dexter is back! Though she hasn't dropped a new album just yet, she is offering an audio tease with her new track "Transitions," which is produced by Foreign Exchange fam Lorenzo "Zo!" Ferguson. This track will surely be as beloved as her most memorable songs like "Ketch a Vibe" and "Choices." The Atlanta-based singer, who is one of the UK's brightest exports, went solo in 2000 after touring with jazz vocalist Courtney Pine. We haven't gotten a full disc of new music since Conscious in 2005, but she has appeared on the records of other artists here in the states and abroad. Her stand-out collabo, hands down, was on the song "How Sweet Life Is" with Angela Johnson on 2007's A Woman's Touch. Here's looking forward to the new release as we dig on what she doles out to us in the meantime. Click HERE to hear Transitions.
You may have heard the name Amber Mimz when she was featured during an Eric Roberson-hosted evening of Soul elegance last Spring at Sol Village at S.O.B.'s. Ms. Mimz, as she is called in some circles, is a 20-something DMV-based chanteuse whose playful vocals flirt over Hip-Hop Soul beats to engage listeners with the promise that all is well regardless what you may be going through. Mimz has been on the grind heavily, gigging tirelessly from packed houses in NYC to intimate house parties in DC to get the message out that this music thing is for real for her.
