First Listen: Agyakomah finds a love to help "Do It All"

(April 24, 2024) For Agyakomah, the question is not whether she can do it all; she can and she knows that she can. However, as Agyakomah tells us on “Do It All,” this American of Ghanaian descent may have the ability to hold it down all by herself - but that’s not something she wants to do.

First Listen: Star duo DetroitCentriX knows "What We Want"

(April 24, 2024) “What We Want,” the new song by DetroitCentriX, is a cut where two members of the Motor City’s musical elite state their desire for humanity to reach its highest calling, while also being a love letter to the city they call home.

World Premiere: Raul Midón delivers an acoustic gem with "A Condition of Love"

(April 22, 2024) It’s amazing to consider the fact that Raul Midón will release his 13th album when Lost & Found drops later this month. He’s been busy, releasing a new project every other year since coming on the scene in 1999.

First Listen: Iyamah recalls Badu vibe on "8 of Swords"

(April 22, 2024) All of the songs on In Two Worlds, the very good album by Iyamah, the Brighton born-London based singer/songwriter, were inspired by a Tarot card reading. “8 of Swords,” the song featured in this First Listen, draws its inspiration from the first card that Iyamah pulled. The picture on the card showed a woman bound by ropes and chains standing in front of eight swords. A castle was in the background.

Lost Gem: Stevie Woods soared on "Fly Away"

First Listen: Nicolay from The Foreign Exchange wants to "Roll Up"

(April 19, 2024) If someone had told the people who started celebrating 420 back in the 1970s and 80s that people would be able to openly smoke without facing legal repercussions in many American cities, those cannabis pioneers would have thought that person had some really good weed.

Well, here we are. Half of the states in our nation have fully legalized recreational use of marijuana and a handful of other states have at least legalized CBD oil.

Happy Birthday to the late, great Luther Vandross

One of the all-time great soul music vocalists was born April 20, 1951. Luther Vandross became the voice of a generation of adult soul music artists, scoring dozens of hits and providing breathtaking interpretations of the past hits of others. First achieving fame as a studio backup singer and a part of the group Change, Vandross became a solo star with his now historic solo debut album, which featured the smash "Never Too Much," and a breathtaking 7 minute cover version of Dionne Warwick's "A House Is Not A Home" that announced to the world that a new star had arrived.
