    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes ConFunkShun, Debuts new Album ' More Than Love '

    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).

    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.”

    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?

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.

    CASE, Debuts his new Album ' Heaven's Door '


    Case Heaven’s Door Music is timeless. It never expires. R&B singer Case knows and believes this. When he makes music, he draws from the inspiration that greats like Marvin Gaye or Michael Jackson have instilled in him. Knowing the influence these singers have had on his life and career,  the Grammy nominated Case Woodard had success in the ‘90s, with his self-titled debut album, which featured the Platinum-selling smash hit “Touch Me Tease Me,” and his Platinum sophomore album Personal Conversation, which spawned big hits like “Happily Ever After” and “Faded Pictures.” In 2001, he scored his first number one hit with “Missing You” from his third album the Gold selling Open Letter. . . With his fifth album Heaven’s Door, Case revisits a time when artists spoke truth in their music. “Our music has always been the story of us, and with this album, I’m on the doorstep of my own personal heaven.” His journey to get there, however, did not come easy. Case’s musical hiatus over the last couple of years is no secret.  “I didn’t walk around singing anymore. I would always be thinking of melodies and ideas and singing songs and one day, I realized I wasn’t doing that anymore. As life would have it, Case moved to Atlanta to focus on raising his kids, and he saw a lot less of the industry. During that time though, Case was forced to deal with the struggles of everyday life,  Case finds his musical comfort zone on Heaven’s Door. He pours his heart out on the first single, the intimately honest “Shook Up,” giving listeners a front row seat to his musical biopic, and it’s those real life situations that keep his sound authentic.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Blake Aaron.Debuts new CD ' Soul Stories '

    in Music

    "Wes Side Story” bodes to be the fourth single from the set to enter the Billboard Top 10.


    Aliso Viejo, Calif. (16 March 2014): Guitarist Blake Aaron utilized an unconventional approach when constructing his fifth album, “Soul Stories,” which will be released May 5 by Innervision Records. To maintain his presence on radio and in the marketplace while juggling a busy schedule as a first-call session player, featured sideman and in-demand producer, he issued a variety of singles with three cuts – the retro funk-disco energizer “Groove-O-Matic,” the urbane romantic duet with jazz crooner Spencer Day entitled “You’re the One for Me” and the salsa-singed “Encantadora” featuring Najee on flute - entering the Billboard Top 10. The ten-track “Soul Stories,” Aaron’s first collection that is entirely self-produced, contains eight original tunes authored by the artist.     


    Saluting one of his hallmark influences, Aaron embodies seminal jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery on the aptly-titled “Wes Side Story,” an evocative selection that will be serviced to radio stations for playlist adds beginning April 6.


    Weaving engaging narratives told through a triad of guitar voices, Aaron’s “Soul Stories” unfolds amidst a varied backdrop of contemporary jazz, R&B, Latin and funk settings. He approaches his compositions as a storyteller and elects to feature a different guitar – cool jazz electric, gentle acoustic or emotional nylon string – as the protagonist of each musical vignette.
