Dave Rogers releases new single ‘Slow Funk’

The veteran singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer of RnB and soul music known as Dave Rogers has released his latest official single, “Slow Funk.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the INDY DR record label. Played so deep in the groove that you forget you’re driving beneath the speed limit, “Slow Funk” showcases Dave Rogers as one of the most intriguing indie soul artists the world over, and promises that we can expect plenty more in the years to come.

In addition to the titanic talents of Dave Rogers, himself, “Slow Funk” also bears the heroic skills of veteran keyboardist Brian Morgan, a two-time Grammy winner with the artist, Kashif.

New Jersey’s Dave Rogers cites as main artistic influences Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles, Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, and Ed Townsend. Dave Rogers’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. This should not come as a surprise, as Rogers has himself played and performed with many legends of the sound over the years. With an emphasis on that soul-funk sound which the ’70s owned and the ’80s never learned to reproduce, “Slow Funk” by Dave Rogers has a little something for every avid funk and soul listener.

Commenting on his overall goals for “Slow Funk,” Dave Rogers says, “I’ve been in the music business for several years, and I’ve worked on projects you may know. As a solo artist using the name Dave Rogers, I hope you take the time to get to know my new music. Enjoy the variety and tell your friends that haven’t heard me to give a listen.”

Dave Rogers began his career in music on the top shelf working with Marvin Gaye on songs that would be included on Gaye’s monumental “Let’s Get It On” album. He recorded his first music for Al Bell, owner of Stax Records. After attending Fisk University and the Berklee College of Music, Rogers worked for years as a session player and creative director for Ed Townsend Productions.

Rogers has worked with Esther Phillips, Shirley Scott, David Johnson (Little Caesar and the Romans), Charles Brown, Martha Reeves, The Vandellas, the West Coast Drifters, and others. He has published music under CherryTown-3TR publishing, Jobete Music, and Peer Southern International.

Reggae singer Deyansa releases new single ‘Seasons’

The singer of reggae and roots music known as Deyansa has released his latest official single, “Seasons.” Like other recent releases from Deyansa, the track has been proudly published on the Roots12 independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Empowering, uplifting, and as danceable as his fans have come to love him for, “Seasons” by Deyansa is the latest reason for reggae listeners to come together and feel the riddim.

Asked to cite a few artistic influences, Deyansa doesn’t mention famous people or even particular music genres. Rather, he talks about the people and sounds closest to him:

The Creator, my father, the people who lived in my community and all around the world. I’m a fan of good music.”

The community Deyansa refers to is Clarendon Parish on the south side of Jamaica, just west of Kingston. He is the son of a singer in a musical family, the eldest child among eight. That community widened for him at the age of 13 when he moved to the United States, where, as his current official bio puts it, “his love for music matured to get him heard and played throughout the country.”

By 1993, Deyansa had become a professional musician singing alongside such popular and internationally regarded artists as John Ford and Sir Coxon Dodd. In 2004, he formed Deyansa and the High Roots, who signed to Silver Kamel Audio and recorded “Holding On to Life,” which would come to be nominated for a Grammy Award.

Today, Deyansa makes his home in Brooklyn, NYC. He has been writing and playing his unique blend of R&B and reggae music for more than a quarter century. “Seasons” represents the most prominent single from Deyansa since his 2009 release, “Within.”

Asked to describe the general themes of his new track, Deyansa writes: “My music delivers a different type of message and it all has to do with life and reality, motivating people, giving them hope and a sense of identity leading them on a path of peace, teaching them how to become one with their Creator and how to reject hate and embrace love.”

Seasons” by Deyansa on the Roots12 label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, reggae and roots fans. Very early.

It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Sudden Peak Records record label. Explicit, aggressive, and packed with boom-bap, “Quarter Milli Marcel” showcases Pete Myers as one of the most powerful hip hop artists of 2018 and promises that we can expect plenty more in the years to come.

W. Virginia’s Pete Myers cites as main artistic influences Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and Jay Z. Myers’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds a higher-octane delivery, something each of the tracks on “Quarter Milli Marcel” has in spades, for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. Bringing a gritty, true to life narrative, surgically precise beats, and top-shelf urban poetry, “Quarter Milli Marcel” by Pete Myers has a little something for every avid hip hop listener.

Commenting on the overall meaning of “Quarter Milli Marcel,” Pete Myers says, “My album shares a personal connection for the audience to understand how Pete Myers and his alter ego Quarter Milli Marcel are separate but coexist. This project allows Pete Myers to take a back seat while Quarter Milli Marcel gets to drive for a change.”

Pete Myers dropped his first mixtape, “Progress Is the Process,” in 2011. A versatile, comprehensive survey of Myers’ talents, “Progess…” contained 21 original tracks ranging from love songs to hardcore rap tracks. He spent the next few years working as a beat producer for indie artists to pay the rent, but soon tired of working in production, alone. Born in New York City and raised in West Virginia, Myers was ready for a change.

Although he loved his hometown of Bluefield, WV,” his current bio reads, “he knew that to get something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. So with no job, just a goal, a vision and numerous concerns from loved ones, he packed his bags, his laptops and keyboards, and moved to Atlanta, GA, also known as the hip-hop music capital of the world.”

Quarter Milli Marcel” from Pete Myers is the result.

The songwriter and producer of pop and hip hop known as Telli Stonemen has released her latest official single, “Go Hard,” featuring Gillie Da Kid. The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Real Hulk Entertainment record label, home to such East Coast artists as Cheazy Mack and Religion Da God.

She also makes a point of noting her Aunt Vida, mom, dad, and brothers as inspirations, as well. Telli Stonemen’s own sound on “Go Hard” has a little reggae in its lyric rhythms, a little Latin verve in its sensual tempo, and a lot of hip-hop style in its overall swagger.

Part of the credit for this must go to Stonemen’s featured artist on “Go Hard,” Gillie Da Kid. As “Go Hard” by Telli Stonemen is a duet – something very uncommon in hip hop – Gillie’s work beside Telli’s shines extra bright.

Asked to describe her start in music, Stonemen writes, “I started really pursuing music in my sophomore year in high school, when I started singing for the school choir.
