Since No ONE is giving these artists recognition : I AM!!
Okay, here's who on heavy rotation in my cd-player
Goapale: I don't know how to describe her voice, but the title track "Closer"
is so smooth and breezy and "Butterfly Kisses is music genius. The sad part is: my radio station hasn't played it yet!
Vivian Green: She's one of Jill Scott's Background singers. I hate to say
this becuase i love Jill Scott so much, but her voice flows better that Jill's. She can sing without all the vocal gymnastics
of Beyonce and the whiny-ness of Ashanti and express incredible emotion. Okay they played "Eotional Rollercoaster 2
times on the radio- but they need to play "Ain't Nothing But Love" at least 20 times / day!
Res: "Why are you selling dreams of who you wish
you could be. A prince in all of the magazines..." Golden Boy is one of my all time favorite songs. The beats,
her voice, the lyrics. WOW. tis can rock out, do hip hop, trip-hop, and 80's. Support true talent!
Buy this CD!!
K-Os: Check out Heaven Only Knows and B-Boy
Stance. And guess what?? I haven't heard him once on these AWFUL radio stations in my town!
I AIN'T GOT THE CD YET, BUT THE SINGLES I'VE HEARD ARE PRETTY GOSH
1. Rhian Benson- Stealing My Peace of Mind
2. Hill St. Soul
3. Van Hunt
4.Madvillan- This is the coolest video I've since. Looks like an old 1960's
comic book strip
6. Time Machine
So, them moral of the story is: Just because they play it on the radio- doesn't
mean it's any good.
P.S. I love Alicia Keys, they just play her songs too much on the radio :- )
