AALIYAH:: 10 YEARS LATER, STILL REMEMBERED:

The tragic accident that shocked fans around the world bought together millions of  mourners who had been touched by her voice. Aaliyah had continued to be a presence in the world of music, and since her vibe and contribution has yet to be duplicated. Aaliyah’s resonance echoes to this day.

SAIDAH BABA TALIBAH

“A PLACE CALLED GRACE”

Toronto, Ontario, Canada — Satisfying and soulful. Raw and raunchy. Inspiring, tantalizing and scandalous. Dripping with sensuality. Saidah Baba Talibah will take you on a trip, get you high, bring you to your knees and take you to that place called grace, all in one album. Toronto rock soul songtress Saidah Baba Talibah‘s – who’s been described as Living Color-meets-Erykah Badu – debut LP (S)Cream is more than just an album: it’s an experience. The suggestive, choose-your-own-adventure parentheses around the ‘S’ in the album’s title are indicative not only of the album’s lyrical content, but of Saidah as an artist and as a person. For more, visit sbtmusic.com for a taste!

Toronto’s Tanika Chawlz covers Amy Winehouse (Ontario Art Gallery – Apr 8th, ’10)

“At once a study, in stunning contrasts with bring-you-to-your-knees hot buttered tones, Mz.Chawlz operates in a sonic time capsule possessing the assurance of Inez Foxx, the vulnerability of Tammi Terrel, and the smoldering intensity of Betty Wright. Her rich voice harbors classic soul influences, while birthing an original, contemporary and memorable sound. Critiques and fans alike rave as Now Mag. voted her ’08 R&B artist of the year and the single SillyHappyWild climbs to no. 1 on OTA Live/HipHopCanada ‘Megacity Countdown’.”

Janelle Monae’s COLD WAR

So you think I’m alone

That being alone is the only way to be

When you step outside

You spin like fire for your sanity

This is a cold war, you better know what you’re fighting for

This is a cold war

Do you know what you’re fighting for?

Kimbra’s SETTLE DOWN

_______________________________________________________________

The Noisettes cover ‘WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG‘ by the Killers

You sit there in your heartache

Waiting on some beautiful boy

To save you from your old ways

You play forgiveness

Watch him now, here he come

He doesn’t look a thing like Jesus

But he talks like a gentleman

Like you imagined when you were young…

A new track ‘REPERCUSSIONS‘ by the legendary Lauryn Hill leaked late this summer. Whether this means a long awaited return to the music scene is unsure but no doubt she’s been missed.
