CHAKRA BLEU

A festive vibe resonates on the summer sizzler release CD: ‘Our Own Paradise’. Chakra Bleu’s 8th album includes the genre of Island-Reggae, R&B, Pop-Rock that will make a person feel like they’re sitting on a Caribbean beach sipping a long awaited pina colada.

Her 1st media single release: ‘We Shall Overcome’ digs in with a message pertaining to equality & justice.  It’s powerful and leads one to feel what this artist really is about: INTEGRITY - This sincere, and yet rebel infused integrity gives credence to her compelling presence as not only an successful recording artist, yet also that of an insightful messenger and leader.

Chakra Bleu’s 7th CD ‘ALL OF ME’ had amazing chart action: The title single ‘All Of Me’ charted #2 on Top 40 as well as #1 on Indie Tope 40, holding for FIVE weeks! That’s not all - yes and then #7 on Top 100! The second single, ’The Shadow’ went to #4 on (NMW) Top 40.

Bold and pioneering, she pushes boundaries with a perspective that is invitingly  insightful and upbeat. This positive vibe flows throughout her music imbuing a magnetic, passionate intensity. Experiencing her unique style of Americana/Pop-Rock/R&B/Island music is like a natural shot of adrenaline that infuses a person with an invigorating surge of energy! Playful, intriguing, enticing, daringly honest and empowering, are words to describe how this captivating artist connects with her audience.

Chakra Bleu has received airplay from various cuts off her CD’s on Top 40, A/C, Country, AAA, Americana radio in the USA as well as Europe. She has been the Spotlight artist at The Bluebird Cafe and BMI Showcases; playing top listening venues in Nashville/Music City USA, as well as being granted the ‘Arena award Feb.1999. This prestigious honor has been granted to few other acts such as Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Jo Dee Messina, etc. who have contributed an inspiring presence in their community.

Quoted by Dave Carew for Nashville Underground:

“Chakra Bleu is - hands down-one of the most original and distinctive Pop/Rock/Americana artists ever to grace the underground Nashville music scene. Inspired by everything from the styling of bands like Heart and the Cowboy Junkies, to transcendent New Age thought, she has forged, over the past decade, some of the most uplifting, eclectic, thought-provoking, and empowering music ever created in Music City,USA.”

Her 6th CD ‘SOUVENIR’ had five singles simultaneously bedazzle: Top 40 Country Main & Indie Charts (sts) with  Weathered the Storm (#8); She Walks Alone (#17); Top 40 Main Charts with ‘Sabotage‘ scoring TOP DEBUT single & charting (#8); ‘Anyday Now’ charting at (#10) for three weeks, as well as(#4) on Top 30 Indie Charts!; ‘Addicted To You’, on Americana Charts,and also making the Spotlight on Cashbox Magazine.

Chakra Bleu’s fifth album single from YOU’RE THE ONE, ‘When I Hold Your Hand’  charged AAA and Americana airwaves, charting #5 on STS Top 30 Indie Chart and #27 on STS Top 40 Main Chart! Her prior single, ‘Hopelessly In Love’ from the Seize the Day album, scored big as well, making it to #16 on the national A/C chart.

The Moon and You

Hey!

I am writing to you in hopes of booking folk Americana duo, The Moon and You, at The Musician  for August or November of 2018.  They are based in Asheville NC, USA in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of the South.  The Moon and You tours the States and Western Europe.  This will be their 5th tour of Europe.

 At its core The Moon and You is a charismatic husband-and-wife team. Melissa Hyman plays cello, Ryan Furstenberg plays guitar and banjo, and both sing in “voices that sound like they were made for one another” (Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah).  Together, the two form a sound that is warm and inviting, atmospheric and playful. Each is a well developed songwriter with a distinctive voice, and their songs range in style from classic to quirky. Lyrics-driven and intellectual with a keen ear for arrangement, they make music perfectly suited to a listening room or a pair of good headphones.  

 We would love to have The Moon and You be a part of this coming year's line-up.

Thanks!

Bella Goldberg

“With The Moon and You’s latest release, an eight-song album entitled Endless Maria, the world has received a mature and self-assured piece of art…[A] distinct and beautifully arranged collection of songs… that demand to be taken seriously at the same time they achieve a cumulative levity, a disarming buoyancy. It’s refreshing to hear a band that’s able to be serious without taking itself—or the world—too seriously.”

      —Alex McWalters, Asheville Grit. April 2017. 
 
“A White Light that Sings…is a kind of world within a world. A dream within a dream. Each of the 11 songs is its own delightfully weird fiction…[with] shivery moments of sweetness and magic…a glimpse into stories, moods and wonderful alternate realities — all set to an evocative score.”

      Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress. May 6, 2016.
 

“[M]usic you can prance around the house to, lay in someone’s loving arms to, drive down the country road with or take on a road trip and listen to. Their harmonies soar or zoom; natural and instinctive. Melodies like swooping birds or airplane glides and sometimes like carnival rides. Their lyrics like organically grown vegetables in the backyard, the roots of their varied rhythms played with no false hopes or pretenses. You’ll hear waltzes, two-steps, campfire strumming guitars, fingerpicking folk style, and you might envision ballerinas, tap and freestyle dancers. Ahhh, it’s just what you need.”

      —Peggy Ratusz, WNC Woman. February 2016.
