I hope you are ready for the week. If not, I have a couple of things that might help you out. :-)
First up, Deborah Bond’s newest album Madam Palindrome is out. If anyone knows Deborah Bond, you know that she puts her heart and soul into making GOOD music. Her fun-loving, good-natured energy is just infectious. The honey and I stopped through WPFW and Ms. Bond was prepping for her interview on Soul Conversations with the wonderful Kimberly Washington. She was bursting with so much pride as we previewed the artwork for her album and gave us a sneak peek of her video for “You are the One”. I won’t give it away, but it is fun, fresh and very creative! It will be on some heavy rotation on VH1 Soul! :-) Go get Madam Palindrome here.
