2011 Musical Stand-Outs

Hey Good People,

Here is a recap of some stand-out artists.  I am looking forward to more wonderful music in the future from these artists.  And if you haven’t heard about these artists, please check them out.

The new kids on the block, King came out strong with their EP, The Story followed up with the heartfelt, All the Kisses with Phonte of The Foreign Exchange.  I am quite excited to see what is in store for King.  Download “All the Kisses” here. Get their EP The Story from iTunes here.


Deborah Bond had an awesome 2011 with the release of Madam Palindrome.  Her single, The One had some major rotation leading to a banging remix by Reel People.


Tracy Cruz has soul and passion.  Her release Universal Symphony thumped with the single Love’s Galaxy.  I hope to hear more from the lovely Ms. Cruz.


Avery Sunshine is soul sista No. 1.  She has emerged on the scene with a voice that is bold, beautiful and brilliant.  She’s been performing often in the DMV so make sure you check her out.

Also check out this slamming remix.


I am so delighted to have found out about Gregory Porter.  This brother is a powerhouse and I am really excited that he has a new album, Be Good coming out in 2012.

You can also find a remix of 1960 What?  here. It’s FIYAH!


And last, but not least, I have to give an honorable mention to Wildcookie, a music collaboration between Freddie Cruger & Anthony Mills.  Wildcookie came out strong and stirred the pot with the song, Heroine.  The music is soulful and out the box, so I am intrigued to see what else is up their sleeves.  Listen to the full album here.


Enjoy! 🙂
