New Nao: ‘Fool To Love’

February 28th, 2016


Fresh from informing Radio 1 listeners that her debut album is “nearly finished”, UK’s queen of electro-RnB Nao drops her new single, ‘Fool to Love‘.

Staying true to her distinctively pop/soul/electro hybrid sound, ‘Fool to Love‘ is uptempo and infectious. Having just announced a world tour (sorry guys the London date is already sold out!) 2016 is looking like a big year for Nao!

Raleigh Ritchie Drops Debut Album: ‘You’re A Man Now Boy’

February 26th, 2016


Singer / songwriter Raleigh Ritchie has been grabbing our attention since 2013 when he released his debut EP, ‘The Middle Child‘. Two EP’s, sold out gigs and lots of anticipation later today he drops his debut album entitled, ‘You’re a Man Now Boy‘.

Undeniably distinctive, Raleigh delivers 18 highly personal, self penned tracks on the album, blending a perfect balance of vulnerability and accessibility on each song. Whilst tracks like, ‘You’re a Man Now Boy‘ and ‘Never Better‘ provide insights into Raleigh’s private life, others such as ‘The Last Romance‘ and ‘The Chased‘ play out like stories that listeners are taken on a journey for. There are lots of upbeat, fun moments too with tracks like ‘Keep it Simple‘ which features Stormzy and ‘The Greatest‘.

The slick production of the album comes from the likes of DJ Dahi, Sounwave, Chris Loco and more. If you want to fully appreciate the beauty of this album, takes some time and really listen, Raleigh Ritchie is not making background music with this album, it is a truly creative piece of work and an impressive, impactful debut.

New Eric Roberson & Phonte Collabo Album!!

February 26th, 2016


Two years ago I interviewed Eric Roberson for a soul magazine when he gave me the insanely exciting news that he and long term collaborator Phonte (Foreign Exchange, Little Brother) were heading to the studio together to record a collaboration album!

Whilst we have all been patiently waiting, hoping it wasn’t an empty promise, it seems that Erro and Phonte HAVE been in the studio and the album is set for release on the 22nd of July on Erro’s own label, Blue Erro Soul.

No title has been announced yet but we’ll keep you posted of any more info and hopefully some tour dates!

Ones to Watch for 2016: Kirby

February 15th, 2016


If you like your music soulful this is guaranteed to be the best thing you’ll hear all day!

Roc Nation artist Kirby, who is known for penning tracks for the likes of Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Kayne West is now stepping into the spotlight where she clearly belongs with her new track, ‘Loved By You‘. The track hears Kirby’s stunningly soulful vocals soar over a laid back melody with guitar by Jeff Gitty and showcases her heartfelt lyrics.

Hailed by fellow RnB star Brandy as, ‘the future of music‘ and with singer songwriter Gallant praising the track as, ‘the best thing I’ve heard in my life‘, no doubt there will be lots more greatness to come from this multi-talented artist.

‘Amen’ – Anthony Hamilton is Back

February 1st, 2016


It’s been 5 years since he released his last album, ‘Back to Love‘ and let’s be honest the RnB scene has been missing the smokey soulful sounds of the incredible Anthony Hamilton.

Luckily the wait is over and he is back in a big way with the uplifting and anthemic ‘Amen‘ produced by James Poyser and Salaam Remi. Hamilton has been back in the studio working on a new album which will hopefully drop later in the year.
