Music Submission, Soul Harmony

Artist or Band Name: 
Soul Harmony

The American band from Greenville South Carolina was founded in 2006-present as a neo-soul/funk, jazz band by one of the founding members (Luke "Duce Diamond" Tate,Sr.) as a additional act to the compilation album (Da' Mass Orche$tra "View from Hate-topia"). With his father David "Pap" Nance,Jr., James William Goodwin (deceased 2008), and older brother "The International" Tate Inc. of the super rap duo "Presidential Playerz". With James William Goodwin, Tate Inc. & Pap's previous experience on various church choirs, it was nothing for them to go to work on writing a album of this caliber. Other members would be added later to give this old tale made modern a new flair. These members would consist of the soulful voice of DunMega with a vocal range to hard to put into any category, his sister Sue Glenn singing alto and soprano, and XMS the youngest member of the group, and the youngest daughter of Tate Inc. With the powerful soul ballard "When she's gone", the colorful title track "Be strong", and the alternative story telling of "Count the ways". This album sure lives up to the hype of the critics. There's something for everyone, and way too many hits to name in this bio, but we hope you'll enjoy! God bless.

Jofalck - Duck
Artist or Band Name: 
Jofalck

Hello. I'm a musician from Finland and this single is my first solo release in 15 years. A new funky and psychedelic track called duck and on the b-side a surf rock type track called drive from 4 years back recorded in a hippie commune. Both songs are one of the first things I came up when I purchased new guitars witch is always an inspiring moment. The surf rock track was born when I got my first Telecaster and the new song Duck when I just reasently purchased (eating porridge for rest of the year) a 1986 Fender Stratocaster that the same age as I am.

Over the years I've played drums (main instrument), bass, melodica, accordion, keyboards and sang in bands but nowadays I mainly play guitar. My most resent band is releasing an album hopefully within this year. It's a strange mixture of 7 musicians with different backrounds shifting trough multiple genres as funk, rock, jazz, afrobeat and progressive rock.

You can listen to the single from Spotify, Youtube, Deezer or Tidal and download it from iTunes, Google Play Music or Amazon Music for example.
On the song duck there is a drum sample by beatz trumant. You can find his funky beats from youtube and they are free to use.

Music Submission, Multiversal

Artist or Band Name: 
Multiversal

Hello,

My name is Blaž Švagan and I am a saxophone player from Slovenia, releasing a debut single of the project Multiversal featuring the Grammy nomination recipient, the New York based vocalist Jonathan Hoard (Jose James, Chance the Rapper, Meshell Ndegeocello, Marko Črnčec, etc.). The single is already this weeks no.1 in Slovenia on radio Val 202.

The song is entitled Back to You and talks about the constant search for oneself and returning to bad habits, toxic people, ultimately drugs. It is a response to today's distorted reality, and its acceptance, which is necessary to escape the loneliness of today's society and the world around us.

The name of the project derives from the theory of multiple universes, which is also expressed in it's music. It does not submit to the classification of musical styles, but leaves itself to the free flow of musical ideas and information.

Lush and well crafted rock with groove, Specialists music puts you in an atmosphere somewhere between funk & psychedelics.  Initially, creating this set of songs was challenging for the duo as they were written & recorded entirely during quarantine over the internet.  After powering through the disconnected nature of crafting these tunes, Too Easy has become Specialists’ most refined release to date.

The EP kicks off with the powerful, Thanks, Boss- a pop-funk song with uplifting synthesizers, funky guitars, & enticing vocals; all separated by an impressive jazz-rock head highlighting the group’s musicianship. Second on the tracklisting, Be Easy, is a funk-rock staple in Specialists’ repertoire. Come Over is a seductive stand out track where Specialists explore their R&B influences. Listeners will find themselves enamored with the skips & hits embedded within this song. Down n Out, released as a single in April, has been described as “powerful, funky, & efficient.”  It’s impossible to not stay stunned while listening to this.” Finally, Wake Up caps the EP.  An epic song about keeping your mind & body in tune with your surroundings. It kicks off with an edgy, rap-influenced verse, followed by progressive rock instrumental sections, & a melodically dramatic chorus filled with internal emotion. This song is an appropriate send off.

As a result of this project being written during quarantine, the lyrical content uses intense imagery to depict an imaginary social life. Specialists found themselves writing about social interactions that they’ve gone so long without. Within the dual vocal parts, you will find a characterization of the bandmates themselves singing about where they long to be.

Jordana Lilly
Jordana is an LA based singer-songwriter who brings a pop touch to her soulful sound. The theatricality of her songs reflect her musical theatre roots - her new upcoming single Locked Up is no exception. It's a funky dance bop summing up the narrative of feeling like you're a prisoner of your own mind (thnx anxiety!). Through ongoing stormy sea metaphors, it takes you on the journey from "I can't believe I'm trapped with me" to "I can't believe I get to be trapped with me!" Being "locked up" and forced to look inward is something everyone can relate to right now. Locked Up reasons that being stuck with yourself is a cause for celebration.
 
 
Thanks so much!

Music Submission, Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski has always known music would be his life; indeed, from his earliest recollection, it was his only choice. Fortunately, he was able to seriously pursue this path at the University of Music Arts (Saints Kiril & Metodij University) in Skopje. And while most musicians learn their trade by first listening to rock’n’roll records and then joining rock bands, DAVOR honed his already impressive skills in a full-blown 150-piece symphonic orchestra. By the time he was in his teens, he was already the featured keyboard player with Macedonian National TV network’s Big Band Orchestra, writing, arranging, performing and playing for some of the biggest and best-known musical acts in the country. This exceptional opportunity was not wasted on this extraordinary musician who was born with a depth of talent far beyond the range of many other artists.

DAVOR’s musical training was traditional: classical followed by pop and jazz, then branching out into film, mood, jazz fusion, ambient, dance, groove, symphonic, contemporary jazz and R&B. Now adeptly accomplished in all musical genres, DAVOR’s original compositions and arrangements display a rich level of sophistication while remaining simply powerful — yet never powerfully simplistic — and often served with wit and humour, as befitting the artist himself.

DAVOR grew up in Macedonia and has since made Canada his home, though he did spend a few years in Libya when he was a young child. The early impressions of living in a desert culture stayed with him as he grew and studied in his hometown of Skopje, where he was influenced by music from the Balkans and surrounding European regions. The synthesis of musical cultures has evolved into a unique style of world fusion, which successfully unifies an infinite range of disparate and varied sounds, instruments, arrangements and sensibilities.
