Genesis

New CD: $11.98 Buy

2017 marks Brian's 25th anniversary as a recording artist, and with Genesis Brian once again reinvigorates his approach to songwriting, recording, and performing. Brian McKnight explains it best by saying 'Genesis is a new beginning of sorts with a nod to my past, firmly rooted in the present, and looking towards the future.' On Genesis Brian has partnered with songwriter and producer Tim Kelley from legendary duo Tim & Bob (Bob Robinson), also known as Funktwons. The duo have won multiple Grammy Awards and their recordings have gone on to sell more than 300 million albums worldwide.

Musiq’s no nonsense conversational songwriting style and buttery vocals earned him a recording contract as he took on an illuminating, life-changing last name. Musiq Soulchild was born. Everything down to his meticulous throwback soul man image (his trademark apple jack cap and designer shades) screamed SUPERSTAR. Soon Musiq’s name was being mentioned alongside modern day R&B royalty like Erykah Badu, R. Kelly, Usher, D’Angelo, Maxwell, and Jill Scott. But he wanted more. “Truthfully, the success I had out the gate was different than how people now make it out to be,” Musiq recalls. “I didn’t have a chance to revel in that amazing moment of having my first two albums go platinum. I was dealing with political issues, writers, producers, and managers. The labels were trying to get me to be something that I didn’t want to be. I’m from the streets, so I wasn’t use to people telling me what to do [laughs]. It turned into, ‘Well, if you want this check you might want to compromise.’ But even with that negative experience, I got to do what I love, which is inspire people.” Musiq Soulchild’s Grammy nominated Life on Earth in 2016 represented an intriguing chapter in the striking career of an artist who continues to search for new muses; new sounds. With “Feel The Real” the future is now.

"On this album, I've arrived HERE," Keys says. "A place where I'm willing to truthfully look at myself in the mirror and to also see the reality of who we have become in this world. The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I've come to realize that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognize the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, HERE."

My Way Home

New CD: $16.98 Buy

MP3 Album:

$9.99

Download

Eli Paperboy Reed has returned to the studio and crafted a new album that is at once back-to-basics and startlingly current. Album opener Hold Out kicks things off at full-volume, embodying the classic gospel ethos that everythings going to work out fine if you just keep the faith. Its a notion that turns up throughout the record, from the title track My Way Home to Tomorrow's Not Promised to Movin', and it reflects Reeds resilient spirit in the face of disappointment. Elsewhere on the album, he nods to the music's church roots, singing of fear of the devil on The Strangest Thing and damnation on Cut Ya Down (the only non-original on the record and a song he learned performing with Boston s Silver Leaf Gospel Singers, founded in 1945). What Have We Done is something of a secular hymn for the environment, and I'd Rather Be Alone serves as a meditation on following your own path to salvation. MOJO called the Boston-via-Mississippi singer the king of rhythm & soul, while Rolling Stone hailed his classic soul and horn-heavy R&B soaked with the blues, and NPR raved that he conveys the heart-wrenching emotion of Southern predecessors such as Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. My Way Home represents a return to the sonic character that Reeds career began with, but it does more than that: It captures the essence of his sound. A sound that, over everything else, prizes feeling, energy, and, yes, Soul.
