    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Genevieve Bellemare. New CD "Melancholy Fever "

    in Music

     "Singer and songwriter Geneviève Bellemare announced that her debut album “Melancholy Fever” will be released September 18th, 2015. The 12 song LP is available now for pre-order on iTunes and most digital service providers.

    Recorded in London and L.A., Melancholy Fever arrives as the follow-up to Bellemare’s 2014 debut EP Live and Die, which NPR hailed as “carefully composed, but her singing makes it all feel intuitive.” On the new album Bellemare worked with producers Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), Tony Berg (Nickel Creek), Paul O’Duffy (Amy Winehouse), and Busbee (Ingrid Michaelson) to dream up a brightly arranged breed of pop, which, when paired with classic drum breaks, results in a stark and soulful sound that isn’t easily categorized.

    The lead single “Shenanigans,” with its soul-pop stylings and urgent rhythm, twists lyrics like “You make me feel like a crazy bitch” into an unlikely message of empowerment. “I wrote that song partly as a way to deal with a few situations where I’d come off as weak, and really wanted to prove myself,” says Geneviève. Interview magazine recently named “Shenanigans” their TRACK OF THE WEEK.

    Once upon a time there were many great self-contained R&B and funk groups, innovative, immensely popular artists such as Earth, Wind & Fire, War, The Meters, The Commodores, Kool & The Gang, Lakeside, Slave and many others who created a body of work in the 70s and 80s that still thrills audiences today.   ConFunkShun was one of the successful bands in this wave, scoring 25 chart hits between 1976 and their break-up in 1987, including such smash hits as “Ffun,” “Chase Me,” “Electric Lady,” “Baby I’m Hooked” and others—many of which have been liberally sampled by the hip-hop generation. When the band re-united with lead vocalists/songwriters Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate, after more than two decades apart, they were welcomed back by their fans as they toured nationally to adoring crowds. Not content to ride on their past hits, they began writing and recording new material which they found got great response in concert. Their highly anticipated new CD and Shanachie debut MORE THAN LOVE (April 28, 2015) is the band’s first new studio album in more than two decades. Their new music finds ConFunkShun as irresistible as ever. Comprised of some of the most soulful, seasoned and respected musicians on the scene, ConFunkShun is: Michael Cooper (Lead vocals, guitar, keys), Felton Pilate (Lead vocals, trombone, keys), EQ/Eric Young (bass), Karl Fuller (trumpet, flugelhorn), KC/Kurt Clayton (keys, vocals), Ron Moton  (sax, vocals) and Brian Collier (drums).

    in Music

    Soulful, sultry singing sensation Sade Serena Debuts new single ' Whatever U Want ".     


    Birthed on September 27 to Jamaican immigrant parents, the Miami-born

    and bred starlet’s foray into music is inevitable, as she exhibits sheer unbridled

    talent framed with gorgeous looks, destined to make her a force to be reckoned

    with in pop music.

    Sade Serena fatefully entered the rhythmic realm at the tender age of 12, recording

    a demo with a family friend named Rhovan, after receiving much encouragement

    to sing for years. "Lo Tienes (You Got What I Want)” was the name of the faithful

    track, and although the song was never officially released as a single, it granted

    Sade Serena invaluable recording experience, along with her first taste of lyrical

    liberation. “We performed that song for summertime jams and open-call talent

    shows, and received a lot of love from audiences,” reveals Sade Serena. “We were

    like the mini Ja Rule and Ashanti.”

    By age 17, Sade Serena was earning her stripes as a background singer, performing

    in renowned Miami music venues like the House of Blues and the American

    Airlines Arena. “As my hunger grew for my own spotlight, I started singing lead

    vocals for local bands at lounges such as Mangos in South Beach, and even in

    hotel lobbies like The Ritz Carlton.”

    Personal Message from Adina : It’s been a minute since I’ve given my fans the type of music that is indicative of the sound and space that I’m in artistically. To this point historically I’ve been know by my classic hits like “Freak Like Me”, “T-Shirt & My Panties”, and “Nasty Grind” and I love that my fans love these hits.

With that being said I want to bring the industry my new sound, a more mature sound that I know the fans will appreciate.

    After writing hits for such artists as Patti LaBelle, Tom Jones, Chante Moore and Stephanie Mills, Carol Duboc began sharing her own musical heart in a more powerful and intimate way, launching her career as a contemporary jazz artist. Since the 2001 release of her critically-acclaimed debut, “With All That I Am,” the multi-talented vocalist, songwriter and producer has carved out a unique niche sharing deeply-felt original songs that are all at once beautifully stylish and lyrically direct and insightful. Former Los Angeles Times jazz critic Don Heckman captured the sultry singer’s magical essence perfectly when he wrote, “The keenly imaginative (Duboc) is one of the most interesting and dynamic jazz singers of her generation.” 

    “Colored Glasses,” Duboc’s latest full-length Gold Note Music recording, is the perfect follow-up to her revealing and very personal 2013 release, “Smile,” whose single “Elephant” rose to No. 2 on the Groove Jazz Music chart and No. 28 on the Billboard tally. While the songs on “Smile” were inspired by the steep challenges and wonderful joys of keeping a long-term relationship afloat, “Colored Glasses” expands the emotional landscape to encompass the aftermath of a difficult breakup, where the heart knows it must let go and move on, but is continually drawn back to the person it can’t stop loving. Written during an intense period of adjustment during which Duboc assumed the role of a single parent to her eight year-old daughter, the songs on the ten-track collection reflect on all the residual emotions inherent in such a transition. They’re about hopes and dreams fostered and dashed, lush fantasies tempered by sobering realities and moments of clarity amidst whirlwinds of doubt.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Lindsey Webster, debuts new CD " You Change "

    NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place - an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17. The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster’s expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles “Fool Me Once” and “Open Up” are out now and available to stream HERE. “"You Change” shows the growth we’ve made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like “Bleed”, a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like “I’m Strong”, we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result”, states Webster. 

    In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl’s House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove. 

    The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK’s soulandjazz.com. Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change.
