Sherrell Mitchell releases new single ‘Hear O’ Israel’ feat. Grady Austin

The producer/songwriter of inspirational gospel music known as Sherrell “Rell” Mitchell has released his latest official single, “Hear O’ Israel.” In addition to the considerable skills of Sherrell, “Hear O’ Israel” also features performances by Grady Austin, The JLM Worshipers, and a Biblical proclamation from Rev. George Mitchell (AKA Dad). It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Uplifting, exultant, and based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, “Hear O’ Israel” is the latest reason for believers and fans of gospel music to take note of Sherrell Mitchell.

Some of “Rell’s,” artistic influences are many of the best-loved voices in modern praise: Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Hezakiah Walker, Donnie McClurkin, Take 6, Israel Houghton, Ben Tankard, Neal Jones, Grady Austin, and Cora Jackson. Informed by the styles of these contemporary favorites, Mitchell’s own sound is founded on the American gospel choir tradition, but dressed up with 21st century production values and plenty of flair.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Hear O’ Israel,” Sherrell writes, “This particular song shares a 2-part message: 1). that God is our All, and 2). a refocus/recommittal to our walk with Him as we give Him our all.”

Sherrell began music as a church percussionist in his youth, but learned to play the piano with training and mentorship by teachers such as Vivian Perryman, Darryl Hawk, Kay Classy and Phil Curry. He continues today to humble serve the Pacific Northwest Christian community with his love for the Lord and his musical gifts.

His 2016 albums, “The JLM Project” and “The Mass Of New Vision” continue to gain popularity, as does his January 2019 single release, “Salt Of The Earth.”

“All things are possible with God, and I’m truly grateful for the beautiful gift of music that He’s given me. Spreading the Gospel through musical expression, one song at a time for an Audience of One, as the world listens on.”

Hear O’ Israel” by Sherrell Mitchell feat. Min. Grady Austin is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the VividVision/2TFMMENT (2 The Fullest Music Movement Ent) record label. Gritty, genuine, and lyrically aggressive, “Best Revenge Is Success” showcases Gravity as one of the most intriguing rappers from the dirty south this year so far, and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Corpus Christi’s Gravity cites as main artistic influences Scarface, Baby Jesus, Bone Thugs ‘N’ Harmony, Kevin Gates, Eminem, NWA, Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., and Screwed Up Click.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Best Revenge Is Success,” Gravity writes, “I feel like there is a song on my album for everyone, but my direct message is: this is my story as a youth told through music.”

It’s a microcosm of growing up in a cruel, often violent setting, where criminal behavior is often seen as the most promising way out. In the end, Gravity’s tale is as much a personal one as it is a story of the disadvantaged youth both in the United States and abroad.

“I know in my heart there’s millions of people who have experienced or are going through the same things I have,” Gravity writes. “I do this for the have-nots, period.”

Gravity also shouts out his beat makers: mjNichols, Epidemic Beats, Ricky Vela, Cxdy Beats, and Jacob “Lethal” Beats.

Ms. Sunshine releases new single ‘California Love’

The songwriter and producer of pop music known as Ms. Sunshine has released her latest official single, “California Love.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Sunny Music Records record label. Upbeat, grooving, and (of course) beaming with her signature friendly disposition, “California Love” again proves that Ms. Sunshine has everything fans of pop music love to hear.

 

Belgium’s Ms. Sunshine cites as main artistic influences Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, Miriam Makeba, Suzanne Owiyo (Kenya), Muthoni the Drummer Queen (Kenya), the late Oliver Mtukudzi (Zimbabwe), and of course, Alpha Blondy. Ms. Sunshine’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds her own sunny personality for a refreshingly exotic result unlike anything most music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on danceable beats, happy melody lines, and more of the singer’s usual uplifting, empowering lyrics, “California Love” by Ms. Sunshine has a little something for everybody.

 

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “California Love,” Ms. Sunshine writes, “Dreams are valid!!!!! No matter where you are from or your background. We have that dream to make it to Hollywood. And Be recognized by the artists and performers that we see and grace our screens, radio and magazines. This is clearly evident by the amount of artists, producers and actors from foreign lands who are now being recognized in the hollywood plattform. And this is not only inspiring for other foreign artists but equally motivational. To ASPIRE FOR GREATNESS.”

 

Born Catherine Achieng’ Onyango in Kenya, 1981 Ms. Sunshine speaks fluent Dhuluo, in which African dialect her name means ‘girl who is born when the sun is shining.’ She has been writing, recording and performing original music since 2010. Popular singles such as “Riding Low Low” (2017) and “Mama Africa” (2013) continue to bring new fans to Ms. Sunshine’s already exceptionally enthusiastic following.

 

I always been passionate for music and dance since young,” writes Ms. Sunshine. “Later on, during my university years, music took a back seat and I passively self-educated myself on the different genres, more so concentrating on ’50s ’60s and ’70s music. At this time, I got an exposure to appreciate and learn some of legendary music’s greatest: Bob Marley and the Wailers, Lucky Dube, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, John Lennon, Etta James, Nina Simone, Franco, Miriam Makeba, Dinah Washington, Pink Floyd, Sting, and Elton John, just to name just a few who later have so inspired me in writing my own music.”

 

Ms. Sunshine has described her musical style as “a prime illustration of Neo-Afro Soul, in that it focuses on the contemporary styles of the genres soul, hip hop and reggae, and sends out a deeper message as opposed to common or commercial music. The songs I have recorded so far exemplify my personal take on life. My philosophy features ideologies from my African influences, with fusions from African-centered and Five Percent theologies, the complex views of diverse African cultural theologies and its complex interpretation of such strong cultural beliefs in our modern and evolving African culture. The majority of Ms. Sunshine music is greatly influenced by my beliefs of the Nation of Gods and Earths and my African roots and heritage.”

 

California Love” by Ms. Sunshine on the Sunny Music Records label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, pop music fans.

Moro releases new folk rock single ‘Wanderin’’

The singer-songwriter of folk music known as Moro has released his latest official single, “Wanderin’.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Budwick Music Co. record label. Warm, adventurous, and bearing classically trilled vocals of the rarest quality, “Wanderin’” proves that Moro still ranks among the world’s most genuine folk musicians.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Bodega Bay, Calif.’s Moro blazes his own trail, as usual.

There’s not enough room here for a properly representative list,” he writes. “I’ll just list my guitar, the sound of the ocean surf, gulls, wind, silence, and the letting in of Love.”

Moro’s own sound takes natural elements from each of these on “Wanderin’” and adds his own sonic vision for a result that blends classic ’60s pop and folk with an undeniable lo-fi sound which will appeal to fans of a broad variety of music. As it happens, this vision seems more important to Moro’s creative process than the input of any other person or musician – anyone maybe but his friend, 77-year-old Native American and Carmel resident Red Eagle.

Red Eagle told me when I was seven,” Moro says, “that if I pretend my playing sounds like it does in my heart, where millions of heavenly musicians are playing my tunes, then one day it will.”

In addition to Moro’s own considerable talents, “Wanderin’” also features work by friends, most notably singer, songwriter and pianist Van Dyke Parks, best known for his ’67 LP, “Song Cycle,” and lyrics contributed to the Beach Boys’ “Smile” record.

After singing ‘Wanderin’’ for the group and seeing Van Dyke was groping for what to do, I sat with him and hummed his notes,” says Moro. “As I’d hoped, he liked them, practiced them for a few moments, and we had a run-through during which he really got into the notes, building them to a climax at the end. Inspired, he produced a long felt strip from his pocket and gently tucked it between the strings of the baby grand piano he was working with. We did another run-through, and it was boffo. Van Dyke had scored big time with that simple felt strip and created the perfect sound for my song. We rolled tape, recorded the tune, and all were inspired by the playback.”

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Wanderin’,” Moro writes, “The meanings, themes and inspirations in ‘Wanderin’’ are exactly the same as they are in all my work – particularly in my purely instrumental guitar work – outpourings of joy in gratitude for the hallowed days of freedom I was given during my troubadour years – outpourings that continue to this day. My wealth is all in happy golden memories of all the good times I have had in fifty countries, as the song says.”

Originally billed as Buddy Bohn, Moro has been writing and recording popular music since before the release of his first album, “Buddy Bohn, Folksinger,” in 1962. Since that time he has garnered global fame traveling under the Troubador’s Code: performing in exchange for basic needs like food and housing, which code he took to heart while still a teenager. He has played for kings and queens, actors and artists as well as cooks, smugglers, and American troops stationed in Laos. During his travels he also recorded three albums on three different labels and on three separate continents. His international hit “Vermouth Rondo” helped him build his home and recording studio in Bodega Bay, California, where he continues to record. For 22 consecutive years, the popularity of his music has earned him recognition from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) for consistent play of his compositions.

“It’s a big help to see how beautiful the world looks and feels when we remember that no matter where we go, Love is there,” writes Moro. “This has been a huge help during my troubadour travels, particularly during my performance tour of Upcountry Thailand in 1962 when there were Viet Cong snipers lurking around the perimeters of my concerts. Hope you enjoy this new video of my new single, ‘Wanderin’.’”

Wanderin’” by Moro on the Budwick Music Co. label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, folk music fans.
