Jaaz

I’m sure you remember the “Bulk Artist Feature” that was really popular a couple of months ago. Sherryl Blu & TrueClefMusic have decided to enhance that promotion and take it a step further by promoted one artist each month to our massive audience of readers and listeners, over 310,000 collectively! We think this will be much more beneficial to unsigned talent looking to be heard by a large group of potential fans!

Obviously we’ve chosen October to begin this new promotion and we’re introducing you to JAAZ!

JAAZ

(The New Flavor of Rhythm)

Good music, good style, and good taste, just a few ways to describe recording artist JAAZ. Originally from Kansas City, MO. now residing in Atlanta, this vocalist is reaching extreme heights as a musician. He has a sensational vocal style, which could put you in the mind of a Maxwell, or Bilal, and a charismatic style such as classic R&B legend Barry White. JAAZ describes his music as Jaazrhythmicfunk, which is a combination of styles harmoniously blended. As a child his musical influences were; Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Donnie Hathaway, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, and The Parliament Funkadelic. Singer songwriter JAAZ, has been vocally trained in the Kuma Sutra, and has incorporated his romantic yet street savvy appeal to his music. With one goal in mind, and that’s”Make hit records”. He is determined to make it to the top. His plan is simple, to strive for success as a total entertainer and be the best at what he does.

Growing up JAAZ was inspired by his mother, his uncle percussionist Greg “Chille G” Allen and father trombonist Adell Kirkwood. His family will give him the inspiration he needed to get out there and make his dreams come true. Since he was a young man his mother always told him to always do something for himself. The time has come for change, dont just reach for the stars you can be one.

JAAZ has already established himself as a “Wanted Man” in the music industry. When it comes to performing, producing, and song-writing many people of stature are keeping a watchful eye on him. JAAZ has developed a very versatile and creative production style that has made him one of the hottest and most sought after artist/producers in the nation.

This stylish vocalist has, performed with and opened for such artists as; P. Diddy, Mint Condition, Silk, 112, Chico Debarge, Gerald Levert, E-40,K-CI & JoJo, Tech N9ne, Fabulous, and more. As far as being new to the music scene he has established himself as a total entertainer. He wrote, produced, performed, composed and played most of the instruments on his debut album entitled “ShowUme”.

The boys crazy he’s from Kansas City, Mo. the “Show Me State”.

Honesty, I’m not exactly thrilled with the way the major labels handle things. I’ve been signed with 2 different majors and they didn’t do a good job.

I’m not jaded in any way but it made me smarter about “the music business”. I have a team in place, ready to utilize “the machine” of the major label when it happens.

I view all major labels the same so whatever label is the best fit for my artisty and who believes in me the most is where I’ll end up…

Press play to hear music from J Hollins below:

That is a tough question. While making my album I had interest from a major label and was who asked me to make completely different music. I am in this game to make music I am passionate about and not to chase fame. This is the reason I decided to push on with my album and ended up signing to VME records. I am really happy that I signed with VME because they buy into me as an artist and give me the freedom to make music that is close to my heart.

J COLLINS WEEK 2

J Collins:

I realized that I first wanted to do music when I was about 14. I didn’t take it serious until I was roughly 20 yrs old. That was when I really began to believe that I could make a living at it. I’ve loved music long as I can remember but it was just a hobby up until I was 20.

david mensah

David Mensah:

Wow it is almost impossible to pin point a single moment when I fell in love with music, perhaps it was always in my blood. I do remember lots of moments that stick out though. My parents would have lots of parties, my cousins and I would be sent up stairs to bed really early. In those days it was all about the bass line,  I remember hearing those bass-lines coming up through the floor from the lovers rock and soul tunes they were spinning. Those bass lines where everywhere in those days, cars would shake the whole street with their sub woofers, shops pumped out choons when I went shopping with my mum and people even used to walk the street with ghetto blasters on their shoulder playing break beats. It felt like music was everywhere and such a big part of life. I think the fact that I can still remember choons from those days that I haven’t heard since goes to show that they became a part of me there and then. “Pass the duchie on the left hand side” lol

OOoooOoo..

Let me see.

It was 2006 and I went to this talent show for a record company that probably doesn’t exist anymore. I performed a medley of Water In My Cup and High as a Kite. I have to admit, being that it was, pretty much, my first ever performance, that I was extra-ridica-nervous. Even still, when I hit the stage, I had the whole place jumping as the kids would say. But speaking of kids, some kid ended up winning it due to some *cough*industrypolitics*cough* type of stuff.

Why do I say that?

The guy/kid who won went to my alma marta to do a show and got BOOED off of the stage.  Since then I knew that I was actually made for this… Unlike a lot of other industry creations.

majesty week 3

Majesty

You all already know how it goes down at a Majesty concert! Event’s are always sold out and the crowd is always enthused. I love to captivate the audience with a unique flavoristic style of performance! I like to bring it back to the old days when singers were true stars and it looked like it. I do not want to sell the fan short. Now that my album is complete expect the full live experience. My growing fan base always compliments me on my amazing stage presences and ability to put on a sold show. I love it when all eyes are on me, it makes me feel a sense of controll and that is definitely going to aid me in the future and it will give me an extended platform to reach people on serious community issues! I am rehearsing for my albums promotional tour and dates will be coming soon! Be informed and search me on myspace.

My most unique experience performing has got to be when I opened up for Big Daddy Kane and Mc Lyte. This was a huge honor for me to open up for the originators  of hip-hop. At the end of the night Big Daddy Kane invited us (my group mates) to his dressing room, he then asked us to rap for him straight freestyle right then and there. I was a little nervous by the whole situation and fumbled around my words. Then Kane went and evaluated each of us, told us our strengths and weaknesses…

He came to me and said “You are going to be something huge I can see it, you just have to be able to deliver your lines with more conviction and strength. If you don’t believe yourself, you won’t be able to make the audience believe you” Those words still till this day have stuck with me. After every song I record I listen to it and judge myself on my delivery. In hip-hop it’s not necessarily what you say but how you say it. So I learned a lot that day. Not only did I perform great and had my lines and rocked the crowd but I was able to learn something extremely valuable that I still use today. So big ups and respect to Big Daddy Kane for the experience.

One of the first live shows that I remember was more of a spot at an open mic night. I had been going to a gospel singing class for a few years and with my new found confidence it was time to take it to the stage. All the time I was in my singing class I used to go down to this place called the Spot in Covent garden which was like an open mic night where all the best singers in town would go to show off. A lot of the singers were session singers who worked with the likes of Luther Vandross, Sting, Madona. So to say it was daunting would be an understatement. I rounded up my mates and headed down there after spending a week preparing the song. When I got there to my horror I saw Alexandra ONeal sat in the front row. My heart nearly stopped, I wanted to turn back and run but before I knew it one of my mates had gone and put my name down to sing. I was called up straight after Alexander ONeal. Some how I got through the song and I guess you could say I have never looked back since.

Majesty:

There are so many amazing artist I would love to collab with but The Black Eye Peas and Polo Da Don Definitely stick out! I love their Styles and they are so current! Majesty is all about staying current and keeping up with the times so that is why I love their approach to music! I also love working with up and coming artist also because the flo and creativity is so great with us! On my album Suspense, that will be out on October 16th in stores I made it a point to hook up with some great producers and artist that people have heard of but didnt know to much about because I am all about building up my fellow artist so definitely make sure you get my album Suspense to hear what we created! If you love me already, you are going to love me even more!

I would have to say, in the music industry the person that inspires me most as an artist would be Beyonce Knowles. Not because of the music she makes, we are to different artist. She makes great R&B and I make hip hop. But what inspires me is her work ethic. I’m a strong believer in hard work dedication and sacrifice for the greater good and no one does that better then B. Night and day she is on a stage performing her heart out or doing a hot music video, creating some more hit records, taking photos for a top magazine cover or busy promoting.
They’re two artist I would love to work with. Dr. Dre & Eminem. Not beciase they living legends or all the hoopla the media makes about them but just for the soul purpose of creating amazing music. Some of hip hop’s biggest artist came out of Dre’s hands. Another reason I would like to work with Dre is because of his high musical IQ, very trained ears and he doesn’t stop until perfection is rached and executed properly
I’m going to keep developing myself til I can get the chance to work with those two. I’m in it for the music, that’s all…just the music

david final week

I have been lucky to work with some great people already. It is always a blessing to work with talented artists as it is difficult not to learn something new and develop your craft when you are working with such great people. I am currently working on some pretty exciting projects which I won’t reveal just yet but definitely watch this space.

c teezy week 2

People like Kanye, Lupe, Jay-Z… the greats of my genre. The ones that push the envelope of his/her individual lanes. People like Coldplay, Linkin Park.

I’m inspired by greatness and but at the same time I would like to work with anyone because everyone has their own ideas and whatnot.

It’s like people front with the singles but any artist that is passionate about what they do usually have something that they want to show the world that is something that they feel makes them who they are.

It’s like I can talk to you and the first impression says one thing, but when I get you in a one on one type of situation, the true emotions then begin to come out. Something that you are otherwise afraid to show because you weren’t comfortable to do it the first time.

But yeah, as a synopsis, greatness and innovation drives me and I’d love to work with anyone who has a passion for music. The more the merrier.

Spread Love.

My first show was just one song within a showcase. Its crazy because as a dancer I can go out on stage in front of 10,000 people and feel right at home, however making that initial transition from stage back to stage front, Mic in the hand wasn’t so easy. Anyhow, I was mad nervous for real. So my slot came up, went out there, confidence grew the more I got into it. But then as the second chorus kicked in, I stepped on the mic lead and It plugs out. (ha ha) So Live On stage I picks it up, plugged it back in, said a quick 1,2, just as the third Verse came in and smashed up the rest of the song. Well I had to!. Just that one song taught me so much. Never stepped on the mic lead again, and my performance now is one of my strongest points. You Wanna see me? HOLLA!!

rook week 3

My first evr live show was about a few years back at a place called the “Red Sea”. It’s a restaurant in The University City Loop, which is where I’m from. They have a small stage and DJ booth downstairs that kind of reminds me of the scenes in 8mile. The whole atmosphere is real hip hop, which is perfect for me. I performed thee songs with my label mate, V1, working as my hype man that night. I just remember a lot of smoke and me being really excited to get going. We had a little sound problem but we worked it out and I don’t remember too much else about it. I guess I kind of blacked out and did my thing because the reception was good from everyone there. Being home made me a little more confortable too. That was special for me.

tequila week 1

 

First live show was at Mosswood Park in Oakland CA at an even for the Black Panther Party. The place was pakced at an outdoor venue and all I remember was the sound system was tight and the event was very well organized. A lot of power surrounded the event since Oakland is where the movement started. A couple local named artist performed and the group I was in at the time sold the show. So much so, that after we left the stagea couple of the promoters asked me to go solo and they would put me on more gigs…

4 flava week 3

One of our first * most exciting shows was a performance for Butlins, where we has about 100 children on stage with us. We taught them some of our dance routine & the chorus to our song. It made us truly love what we do… Seeing their happy smiling faces!

david 3

Hmmm crazy….. I have to be honest and say that I haven’t really done anything too crazy to get noticed. I got into music because I love musicand not too seek fame so my focus has always been on making the best songs that I can and being on top of my game when it comes to performing. While gimmicks get you noticed for a hot minute, a great song will get you remembered for an eternity. I have been lucky to get noticed for my talent and I am always greatful that so many people connect with what I do in the studio and on the stage. Music can be very powerful and I am always amazed at some of the mail I get telling me how my songs have had a big effect in peoples lives. I couldn’t ask for more than that.

4Flava week 2

Well… Let’s see…back in July 2008 our manager got a call in the middle of our rehearsal for us to get spruced uo to meet Akon!… Nervous as hell…we all chatted together and asked if we could sing live…so in the middle of the bar we all stood and gave an impromptu performance…he was really bowled over…so watch this space!!!

chrismarsol week 2

I suppose I haven’t done anything extraordinary to get noticed in the industry. I think at this time, gimmicks and having a shtick is falling away and artist now have to really be able to perform. The huge budget are over and EVERYONCE is putting themselves on the internet so the only thing separating a good artist from a great one is being able to put on a good show.

It’s funny how we’ve come full circle. It’s back to simpley being able to sing or perform. I don’t think there are any short cuts. Sure, some artist get luck; go to the grocery store and happens to run into Rick Ruben wh happens to overhear them humming to themselves and suddenly signs them to a million dollar contract. It could happen…But then again, I could get struck by lighting too.

But 99.9% of us are gonna have to work out assess off for years, grind, pay our dues, battle the ups and downs and hopefully come out on top.

 

markan 2 week

The craziest thing I’ve ever done to get noticed was actually more dumb than crazy. I few years back I remember waiting outside aradio station as I knew a certain producer was on air. So I planned what I was gonna say when he came out. I had my boggy box ready for my heaviest verse. I had my Demo CD in my pocket, I was ready. So 9 o’clock came round and I knew he was on his way out. I was going over all my prep’s. I saw him exit the elevator through the door with his peoples. So I pressed play, as he came out the building I was doing my thing. In my head I was like,” Yeah Man!”. The dude walked straight past me, without even blinking, jumped in his car and kicked out. I was like Dammmmn! So I stopped rapping, started busing move’s. Took of my hat and took a collection from the crowd that gathered. Bought myself a Burger and went home!

tequila week 1

I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THE CRAZIEST THING IS WHEN I AUDITIONED FOR A REALITY SHOW IN SAN FRANCISCO AND DID NOT RECEIVE A CALL BACK.  IT WAS CRAZY FOR ME BECAUSE I WAS ALWAYS ONE WHO MOCKED THOSE WHO WENT ON THOSE TYPE SHOWS AND PROCLAIMED TO NEVER GO ON ONE.  HOWEVER, I WAS CONTACTED BY THE SHOWS SCOUTS ON MY MYSPACE PAGE AND GIVEN THE WINNING SPEECH TO APPEAR.  I WENT AND GAVE AN AWARD WINNING AUDITION AND GOT A STANDING OVATIONFROM THE STAFF AND THOSE THAT WITNESSED MY PERFORMANCE, BUT NEVER RECEIVED A CALL BACK.  I WAS MORE EMBARRASSED THAN ANYTHING AND FOR ME I HATE TO BE EMBARRASSED.

rook week 2 b

The craziest thing I’ve ever done to get noticed in the music industry would have to be paying to be apart of shows in St. Louis. These were some of the first shows I had ever done and there was very poor attendance. Then the people who were there would either move a little or stand there and look at you. I could tell while I was performing I was being ripped off but I had to start somewhere. I guess looking back on it; it was good practive for me. I t sort of taught me to give the same effort no matter how many people are watching. Now I’m completely comfortable on stage.
