    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Luke James x Lil Mo

    in Music

    When a new artist hits the scene, adjectives like fresh and honest frequently get thrown around when, in many instances, it’s more hype than truth. But that’s definitely not the case when it comes to Luke James .. And just who is Luke James? He’s a singer/songwriter who truly embodies the honesty and fresh, organic soulfulness that’s been in relatively short supply of late in contemporary music. Now that sounds like a pretty tall order for a newcomer to fulfill. However, the New Orleans native is very much up to the task. In fact, you’ve no doubt heard his work.


    James’ real-deal approach to music and—more important—the craft of singing are the main attractions on his self-titled debut album: "Luke James” Both mark the singer/songwriter’s debut on Mercury/Island Def Jam via New Age Rock Star Records (NARS), the label helmed by award-winning producer Danja (Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Keri Hilson) and long-time collaborator / mixing engineer Marcella “Ms Lago” Araica (Madonna, Pink, Timbaland). That connection hits home on James’ lead single, “I Want You.” Packed with interesting breaks and tempo shifts, the sparse yet bright track pulsates with an infectious, hip-hop-influenced beat. That foundation provides the perfect complement to James’ pure, arresting falsetto as he sings: “I was just a broken record of one-night stands /Til you came along with your beautiful song …”

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Gregg Karukas and "Soul Secrets!"

    in Music

    Gotta get that title out there for our Grammy Award-winning, Maryland Man!  Indeed, Gregg Karukas is returning to "Hybrid Jazz" with yet ANOTHER feather in his cap: a luscious new musical project called "Soul Secrets."  


    Keyboardist, Composer and Producer and MORE.  For over two decades, Gregg has been captivating our psyches with his psoulfulness :-D   (HAD to go there!)  There is so much that can be said about our guest!  He truly is the pride of Bowie, Maryland - where he starred in the Starliners Big Band in high school.  An early champion of the synthesizer, Gregg owned one of the first mini-moogs.  He was in the top Washington, D.C., Jazz-Rock band, East Coast Offering.  This region knew him WELL!  Moving to Los Angeles in 1982, his reputation followed him.  Five years later, he was one of the original members of the Rippingtons.  And through the years, he found work with Larry Carlton, Melissa Manchester and Sergio Mendes.  His collaborations with Brazilian composer, Dori Caymmi and his work with Omar Akram set him apart from almost anyone in the genre of Contemporary Jazz.  Especially satisfying is the Grammy from last year's "Echoes of Love" with Omar.  Gregg produced, engineered, arranged and co-wrote immensely ear-pleasing music for the project, which garnered "Best New Age Album" honors.


    Raise your hand if you know Gregg's OWN tunes when you've heard them on the radio.  Many of us do and are grateful for the velvet passion that soaks through the airwaves like bliss - if that had notes :)  This is a true student of music who dabbled with drums and guitar and trumpet as a child - but chose the keys to the highway ultimately.  And never looked back.  The artistry from "Soul Secrets" seals that deal for GOOD.  Join us on 10/1 with Mr. Sublime ;)

    Epiphany's House Welcomes Tantra Zawadi and Josh Milan!

    in Entertainment

    What  a lovely episode I have in store for you all....I give to you  Tantra Zawadi and Josh milan...members of the collective-Honeycomb Music!


    "A work of love — what Tantra-zawadi makes — what she achieves through her art, envisioning, she says, the 'unseen reality.' A sublime soulfulness suffuses it, pungent like incense, subtle sinuous trans-formation shape-shifts as a genie might, rustled by a reedless wind. Its sizzle-cymbaled syzygy unites that, familiarly met, we thought we knew — blindness preceding a first kiss, bittersweet after — with a mastery of mood, trilled to transcendence, encouraging independence, womanly presence and voice, to embrace experience alongside others.


    Josh Milan, longtime producer, singer, songwriter and DJ, has partnered with poetry collective Raw Honey to develop the new digital release. All of the poems are written about the theme happiness and they are backed by Milan's signature beats and melodies and even a few vocals.

    Up Close & Personal with Saxophonist "Tony Exum, Jr."

    in Music

    Tony Exum, Jr. brings to mind the soulfulness of a David Sanborn, the sultry sounds of the late great 
    Grover Washington, Jr. and silky smoothness of the late George Howard. Not a carbon copy of these

    in the Ft Carson, CO. army bands and his mothers vast record collection containing the sounds of jazz and funk such as Jeff Lorber, the saxophone of Washington, Sanborn and Howard, Charlie Parker, Ronnie Laws, Najee, P-Funk, Slave, Boosty Collins.... the list goes on and on. At age 18, Exum began studying music at the prestigious Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver under world renowned saxophonist M. Lynn 
    Baker, M.A. and first call woodwind doubler Art Bouton, M.A. These days at D.U. brought the world of music 
    with challenges and achievements that found Exum discovering the vast world of music and the possibilities within. In 1996, Exum joined Ft. Collins, CO. based band Meadowlark Jivin, a funky, jazzy blues and soul outfit spearheaded by singer-songwriter Brian Hull. He toured with them for 7 years recording two CDs in the process. Throughout this time Exum stepped on his own on the local CO scene as he performed with and opened up for such notable acts like The Temptations, the Four Tops, the Chi-Lites, the Manhattans, WAR, Dennis Edwards and the Temptations Review, Lenny Williams, Chelli Minucci and Special EFX, Nelson Rangell, Marion Meadows and Dotsero just to name a few.
