    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.

    in Music

    New Single  “I Miss You” Debuts at #30 on the Billboard UAC Chart!  


    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

    Sweet melodies, soft backgrounds and powerful leads would be the only way to describe the unique but soulful sound of R&B singer Bahja Rodriguez.  Bahja is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Atlanta Georgia. From an early age Bahja has always enjoyed singing and had a passion for music. 


    Bahja’s professional career began at the age of 12 years old as “Miss Beauty” with the popular and colorful girl group the “OMG Girlz.” The group is most known for their songs “Gucci This(Gucci That),” “Where The Boys At,” “Baddie” and “Boy It’s Over.” The group performed on several major tours and had much success however, in March 2015 the group disbanded.


    Not letting the group’s abrupt ending stop her from pursuing her dreams, Bahja sought out the perfect creative team to help develop and bring her vision as a solo artist to life.  In April 2015, Bahja released her first song as a solo artist titled “Jealous Type” which has gained over one million sound cloud plays to date. She went on to release two more songs titled “Lipstick” and “Next One” each currently having more than 300,000 plays on sound cloud. 


    With such an overwhelming and amazing response to her music, Bahja Rodriguez definitely seems to be Atlanta’s “next big thing” and just what the music industry is missing. Her debut EP titled “It Gets Better” will be available for purchase everywhere music is sold online November 20, 2015.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Darren Barrett’ - Debuts “Trumpet Vibes.

    in Music

    Darren Barrett’ - Debuts newly released seventh album, “Trumpet Vibes.


    For the first time in his award-winning career, the trumpeter-composer-producer explores his Jamaican roots on a recording project. Adeptly, the Boston-based artist from Toronto introduces good-time reggae rhythms and frenzied ska beats native to his parents’ Caribbean homeland to hard bop and swinging jazz on the eight-song set that he produced and wrote four new compositions.


     


    A charismatic companion to engage in meaningful discourse and occasionally play foe to his astute trumpet play, Barrett selected the vibraphone to share the spotlight as a featured “voice” throughout the session, with noted vibes soloist Warren Wolf guesting on a pair of tracks to participate in improvisational banter with a young trio comprised of vibist Simon Mouillier and brothers Alexander and Anthony Toth on bass and drums respectively. Also of significance is that Barrett opens the session by saluting his late mentor, trumpet great Donald Byrd, on the chirpy swinger “Fly Little Bird.” Interesting to hear him ply the jazz-meets-reggae motif to pop gems such as the regal “To Sir With Love” and amorous overtures like David Gates’ “Everything I Own” and Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour.” Barrett shines on his own compelling compositions, including the moody and murky “Chiapas”; the deliberate “Song For A Princess,” on which he takes his time – nearly seven minutes - to bop and blow while cruising a laidback island wave; “Phantom dB” that gets a jarring jolt of rock & roll drumming and some dissonant trumpet distortion; and the slightly more conventional straight-ahead jazz foray “The Club Up The Street” that wraps the disc.

    LOTL Radio Welcomes Terri Lyne Carrington. "The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL"

    in Music

    Terri Lyne Carrington arranged and produced


    Natalie Cole’s last recording titled “Come


    Sunday,” featured on Carrington’s current CD, The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL, released in August 2015. “Come Sunday” is Duke Ellington’s sacred classic, which was originally made popular by Mahalia Jackson.


     Terri initially met Natalie Cole as a teenager


     Terri also performed with Ms. Cole on the


    concert stage. 


     


    The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL presents Carrington leading a rotating cast of superb female instrumentalists and vocalists that includes Oleta Adams, Natalie Cole, Paula Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Chanté Moore, Valerie Simpson, Nancy Wilson, Jaguar Wright and Lizz Wright, as well as saxophonist Tia Fuller, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen; bassists Meshell Ndegoecello and Linda Oh; and keyboardists Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen and Rachel Z.


    On The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL, Carrington juxtaposes her salute to female artists by paying homage to various male artists who have either influenced her professionally and/or informed her musicality, such as Nick Ashford, George Duke, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Luther Vandross and Bill Withers. “Whenever I do something that celebrates women, I never want it to feel like it’s something that excludes men,” she explains. “On this record, I consciously wanted to celebrate the various relationships women have with men either through original songs of mine or cover songs by male composers and song writers.” The male presence and perspective on The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL is even more realized by Billy Dee Williams, who contributes insightful spoken-word interludes through the disc.
