The Rendezvous is one of NYC's hottest monthly events featuring live performances from some of the most talented independent artists in the music industry.
The next edition of The Rendezvous will be extra special. It will feature listening sessions for independent artist Colie Williams and her cd "Light Up The Darkness" in stores now and the new CD from Leela James on Shanachie Records, "Loving You More...In The Spirit of Etta James" in stores July 31st.
Then we'll have live performances from:
J. Phoenix is a singer and songwriter who does not snugly fit into a particular category. The genre-defying scope of his musicrecorded by others, featured in films and on his album, and some still sitting on the shelfis impossible to pigeonhole. Check it. He is the same man who wrote contemporary Gospel group Anointed's Dove Award-nominated "Adore You," Tupac's mega hit "Thugz Mansion," and Joe's R&B hit "All That I Am" from the platinum-selling album of the same title. He is the same writer who penned "Whatever It Takes," featured in From Justin To Kelly and "Be Around," featured in The Brothers. While the diversity speaks volumes, what's most impressive is the precision he brings to each song. Yes, the variety is astounding, but the more time spent listening to his catalog the less disparate he appears. It is here that the J. Phoenix-specific language that unites a love ballad to a message song to a Hip Hop hook becomes clear.
From BET to MTV, Yewande (yee-wán-day) has been recognized as one of the most sought after independent artists in the world. In an industry that doesn't always celebrate "different", her unique blend of soul, rock and pop music has led to performances with the likes of the Black Eyed Peas, India.Arie, Enrique Iglesias, Maroon 5 and A Simple Plan. But as Phoenix Records' "First Lady of Alternative Soul", her highly anticipated album "Rebirth" is sure to solidify her position in music history (www.yewande.com). When Yewande isn't rocking the stage, this award-winning lecturer, social activist and honorary U. S. Cultural Ambassador produces music-based empowerment initiatives for some of the world's most vulnerable children from Africa to the Americas through her humanitarian organization (www.changerocksfoundation.com). And she's just getting started
Plus a special Video Screening and guest performance from International independent Artist Kelli Sae!
Internationally acclaimed vocalist Kelli Sae is not new to the limelight. And, she's not blinded by it, either. As the former lead vocalist for global jazz/funk collectives, Incognito, Count Basic and Defunkt, she has seen the world, worked with world class musicians and learned that at the end of the day, all you have is you.
Pure is not her first solo effort, but it is her very best. She wrote, arranged and produced every song along with A-list musicians of her own choosing. Without industry interference, she made an album that peels away the layers of her intricate soul. The music and lyrics of Pure are honest and frank. These are songs that point fingers and name names. These songs are the light at the end of the tunnel.
Kelli will premier the video for her single "No Use" and perform a special intimate set at this edition of The Rendezvous.
Plus we'll have music from DJ BlackIcon1 heard on Musical Pathways every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday at 2PM on RhythmAndSoulRadio.com!
Your host for the evening will be "MamaSoul" from the Musical Pathways Show on RhythmAndSoulRadio.com
