IN PERFECT HARMONY WITH SONGBIRD

In Perfect Harmony with SongBird

Posted on Tha L Spot on May 8th, 2013

​With a special twist on an old school jazz fused with today’s R&B, artist Isleema Songbird proves she is a rising star to look out for this year.

​It all started at the tender age of 7 for the young Songbird when she performed “I just can’t give up now” by Mary Mary at a family reunion. She then began to write poetry and short stories as a means of expression. Some of her work eventually formed into melodies and from then on, she could not deny her passion for music.

Influenced by artists such as Lauren Hill, India Arie, Etta James, and Chrisette Michelle, Songbird found her own unique sound. By staying true to the pioneers of jazz while mixing in modern chic rhythm and blues styles, Songbird developed her voice and artistry.

As a member of Scholarich  Music Group, Songbird wishes to use her talents to inspire the younger generations. Through programs such as Lyrical Cafe, Scholarich Music Group uses music, entertainment, sports and fashion to make education more appealing to the urban youth and supplies them with an outlet to express themselves.

​“Regardless of the topic, being able to express yourself is key,” said Songbird. Through music and writing, Songbird was able to overcome a speech impediment as a child. With Scholarich Music Group, she can help children overcome any obstacle and follow their dreams.

​“I used to think that being different would turn people away,” she described, “but it actually attracts a larger audience.” Along with growing as a performer, Songbird has learned to accept her individuality and just be herself.

​“I love watching my work transform from just words on a page to a fully composed piece,” said Songbird, “and I want my audience to understand my freedom of expression.

Songbird is currently finishing a video for her single “Perfect Harmony” which is available on iTunes. Stay tuned this summer for the release of her debut album. In the meantime, you can catch Songbird, along with the other members of Scholarich Music Group, performing around the New York City area.

RAPPER RANDY S.A.V WITH THE F.I.R.E

Rapper Randy S.A.V with the F.I.R.E
Published on Tha L Spot on May 1st 2013

randy

With the upcoming summer release of his EP, “Exotic”, rapper Randy S.A.V is using his talents to merge the gap between different genres of music. By incorporating aspects of various genres such as rock & roll and rhythm & blues, S.A.V’s versatile style allows him to explore and create new sound, unchartered by any artist in the industry today.

​Hailing from Roosevelt, New York, S.A.V surrounded himself with music playing throughout the house, and it was the music from the 70’s and 80’s that sparked his interest in music. By the time he reached high school, he decided on a musical career. Growing up, S.A.V naturally enjoyed the music of The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac, but he also liked the sounds of Jay-Z, the Wu Tang Clan, and Bone Thugs ‘N’ Harmony. He expressed his current admiration for the authenticity of artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Currency and their ability to make chart topping mainstream songs as well as popular underground music.

​”Everyone is different but you would never know it if everyone is doing the same thing,” said S.A.V. With his team, Area 21, including artists Dr. Jekel and Young Gramz, S.A.V writes, creates, and produces music. The group prides itself on being original and different and is not afraid to stray away from the norm when it comes to their music or brand.​

In 2011, S.A.V released his debut mixtape “The Optimistic”. By popular demand, he released his second tape “The Upper Hand” in 2012. For his third tape, S.A.V plans on taking his music and his audience in a different direction. “I want to introduce a new sound to rap,” said Randy S.A.V, “kind of out of the box.” For the upcoming EP “Exotic”, Randy S.A.V tapped into his rock and roll influences and went into depth incorporating live bands and sounds. Layering his fresh, natural lyrics over raw acoustic sound will bring the authenticity that he feels is missing from most rap music today.
You can catch S.A.V and other artists from Area 21 performing around New York City and Long Island area. Watch the video for “Where’s the Fire” off The Upper Hand mixtape and be on the lookout for S.A.V’s EP “Exotic” this summer.

CLASSICAL OPERA ARTIST DOMINQUE FORBES

Classical Opera artist Dominique Forbes
Published on Tha L Spot on April 24th 2013

dom
With a keen ear for music, distinguished voice and classy chic style, Classical Opera artist Dominique Forbes, has established herself as a young artist with a diverse repertoire.

“I am different and doing what I love has allowed me to accept who I am and be my real self,” said Dominique. After performing her first opera solo in the fourth grade, Dominique felt a connection to the art form and could not deny passion for its sound, purity, and beauty.​

Under the guidance of Shirley Crabbe, Dominique trained and sharpened her vocal talents. After graduating high school, Dominique was honored to be selected as a member of the Sound of America Chorus. With the group, she toured Europe and witnessed how music, a universal language, moves people all around the world.

“I know from experience that singing doesn’t just involve your voice,” said Dominique. Not only does she enjoy singing but she has a background in dance and acting as well. By encompassing all three mediums in her performances, she uses her body and voice to translate a story to her audience.​

“Classical concerts can be very traditional and modest in presentation, but they give the audience members a chance to take in the experience,” said Dominique. She explained how her performances allow for a different experience than those of pop or hip hop concerts. Rather than singing and dancing along with the artist, at a classical concert sit back, watch and listen. She expresses how she wants her audience to “internalize and engage themselves” in her music without any distractions.

She recently put on her first one woman show in Syracuse New York. “Once I put on that gown and looked in the mirror, I told myself, ‘just sing tonight. Do you!’ And there was no turning back!”

Dominique is excited to keep excelling in her career in classical music. This summer Dominique will be participating in the Opera Works and Opera Viva Programs. Her ultimate goals are to be entertaining, directing, and producing and someday open her own performing arts center.

Below is a video of her performing:

THINK LOGIC-LY

monop

Westchester’s natives, AJ Rockafeller and Monopaly, of Logic Ent., are definitely artists to look out for this Spring. Influenced by the greats in hip hop such as Tupac, Notorious BIG, Snoop Dog and Nas, the duo blends clever punch lines with genuine lyrics to create refreshing music for audiences to connect with and enjoy. With the upcoming release of their debut EP “For What It’s Worth”, dropping April 30, they are prepared to make their mark on the music world.

​Growing up in the 90’s, often referred to as the Golden Era of Hip Hop, both AJ Rockafeller and Monopaly felt they were surrounded by music and its culture. They each began writing during their early adolescent years and eventually it cultivated into more than just a hobby.

​”I wanted to stand out and be different, and to monopolize the industry,” said Monopaly.

During his high school years, Monopaly created the entertainment group PunchLine Ent. and along with his peers, would battle other local rap groups. He released his first single “All I Do” in 2006.

​After the untimely death of his father, AJ Rockafeller channeled his confusion and frustrations into his writing. He realized a career in music would be his only satisfaction in life and sought for an outlet in which he could express himself. In 2007, he teamed up with Monopaly and they eventually formed their Logic Ent. label.

“We are real people and we rap about real things,” said AJ Rockafeller. The group prides itself on being authentic and natural. They enjoy having creative control and ownership of their music and brand.

​”This is the most humbling experience in my life,” said AJ Rockafeller.

​The release of their first single “Respiration 2K12″ from the upcoming EP, was so well received by audiences, it drove the duo to work harder. They released the second and third singles “High Off Life” and “Gotta Let U Go” which tell their life experiences and how they overcome any adverse obstacle.

​”I believe this mixtape will excel my career and be everything and more,” said Monopaly.

​After years of learning the industry and gaining experience, the group is prepared to share their music with audiences and hopefully one day include their name amongst the greats in Hip Hop.

​Check out Monopaly and AJ Rockafeller’s latest video “Gotta Let U Go” here. And be on the lookout for their EP “For What It’s Worth” dropping April 30.

THA L SPOT CHATS WITH “TUNE$”

Tha L Spot Chats with Artist Kayden “TuNe$” Wong

Published on Tha L Spot on March 12th 2013

tunes

Rapper Kayden “TuNe$” Wong seems to be an artist to look out for this year. This Queens native, with roots extending to China and Jamaica, was influenced by the greats of Hip Hop and Reggae music. With his smooth lyrical style, layered over innovative beats, his unique sound is a sure win over the ears and hearts of many.

Getting involved in the music world was inevitable for the young TuNe$. With an older brother and cousin pursuing a musical career, he was exposed to the culture at an early age. TuNe$ began writing and recording rhymes recreationally inside his neighbor’s basement. He became interested in the production of songs and would create beats on a video game for his PlayStation. Over the years, as his interest grew deeper, his skills in writing and producing music sharpened. After honing in and perfecting his craft, TuNe$ decided to become an artist and producer of his own material.​

“Music is something that I’m passionate about, that I don’t plan on stopping,” said TuNe$. Staying true to definition, the company name Deceptive Cadence Productions, stemmed from TuNe$’ unrestrained devotion to music.​

In his debut album, iTuNe$, released early 2012, TuNe$ opened up in what seems like a lyrical autobiography. As a college student, his music tells the stories of the average young adult. He shares his everyday experiences in his music, allowing him to be relatable and popular. His ability to connect with his audience is so genuine and well received amongst his peers and fans. As a member of the Nubian Gents Step and Dance ministry, TuNe$ has traveled to Australia, New Zealand and other European countries. He witnessed the way music transcends audiences and learned techniques necessary for distinguished performances. Attentive to crowd reaction, TuNe$ learned to keep a fluid set, encourage audience participation and he may occasionally bust out a dance or two.​​

You can catch TuNe$ performing at various venues in the New York City and Long Island area with Regime, a music group led by fellow artist Army. “As a group, we are individuals who are committed to using our talents our skills and our abilities to inspire those around us and to set that standard instead of chasing it.”​
