    MAURICE STARR - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - MON, MARCH 30, 2015 - 6:00 pm PST

    in Music

    Maurice Starr is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer. Though trying his hand at a solo career, he's best known for his work creating songs and albums with pop and soul bands such as Con Funk Shun, New Edition, and the New Kids on the Block. Originally from Deland, Florida, Johnson moved to Boston, Massachusetts, in the early 1970s. As an artist, Johnson was a member of The Johnson Brothers (not to be confused with The Brothers Johnson from Los Angeles, California) and the seminal electro group known as the Jonzun Crew with brothers Michael Jonzun and Soni Jonzun. In 1980, Johnson changed his name to Maurice Starr and recorded two R&B albums, Flaming Starr and Spacey Lady. Unsuccessful as a solo artist, Starr decided to create a band to perform the songs that he wrote.
    In 1982, Starr discovered the band New Edition on his talent show. The group produced a number of U.S. Top 10 R&B hit singles and a Top 5 hit in the Billboard Hot 100. Differences between Starr and New Edition caused the two to go their separate ways. Eventually the band split up. Two of the members, Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant, went on to have a successful careers as a solo act, while the three others formed the award winning group, Bell Biv DeVoe.
    After losing New Edition, Starr needed a new band to record his songs. In 1984, he created New Kids on the Block, a band consisting of five male teenagers, brothers Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight, with Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg and Joey McIntyre. Starr produced New Kids on the Block to be a white version of New Edition as he stated I honestly believe that if they'd been white, (the group) would have been 20 times as big.[1] With New Kids on the Block as Starr's "voice", Starr won Songwriter of the Year in 1989.
    In addition to New Edition and New Kids on the Block, Starr also formed the boyband Perfect Gentlemen and discovered solo artist, Rick Wes.

    I present to you the ever so multi-talented songbird Joy Mover!

    in Music

     After many years of writing, producing and recording the music that is so very much a part of her DNA, singer /songwriter Joy Mover is taking her first giant step toward actualizing her lifelong vision.  Joy’s roots are steeped in music beginning with her great-grandfather, through her maternal and paternal grandparents and uncles, followed by her parents, brother, and cousin, Joy’s family has long been populated with professional musicians and singers. Her father, Jimmy, like his father before him, is a trumpeter. He played with several big band greats of his era.  Joy is forging her own distinctive path on a journey to fulfilling her creative destiny. While honing her musical identity, Joy toiled in the corporate world, working in her spare time to develop her songwriting and maintain her vocal chops. As her business career progressed to greater challenges and responsibilities, Joy realized that the demands of the “day job,” which consumed significant amounts of time and extensive travel, would make it impossible to dedicate the attention necessary to manifest her primary passion as a songwriter/vocalist. Most of the songs on Joy Mover were created while Joy traveled for business, recording into a cassette while en route. “Joy's music reflects a strong respect and appreciation for great musicianship regardless of genre. “Although her jazz roots run deep, there are also threads of Latin, folk, soul, and blues woven into the mix, creating a tapestry that may be considered ‘outside the norm’ in the traditional jazz world.” Unlike many artists of today, Joy Mover has a distinctive, quickly recognizable style.
