Freedome, by Karl Nova

A friend of mine called Karl Nova heard a few of my beats, liked them, and we ended up recording 7 tracks in a couple of days! The project is called “Outside My Bubble” and it should be out by the end of 2011…

In Karl’s own words

I chose to spell freedom wrongly on purpose because it is a play on words since dome means head. When you find the truth it frees your mind, frees you from the opinions of people, you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free……..

My Favourite Albums of All Time pt. 3

If this was a tweet I would say

Marvin Sapp – Grace And Mercy #thatisall

This album is amazing! Another gospel classic from 1997, I put this on recently and was singing every riff!

The vocals, the choir, the musicianship, the production, the words…awesome!

Go listen Marvin Sapp – Grace And Mercy

My Favourite Albums of All Time pt. 2

I missed a week! Sorry to keep y’all waiting 🙂

This next one is the series is a gospel classic from 1998 (do they still make classic albums any more?)

Ladies & gentlemen Kim Burrell – Everlasting Life

The first time I heard anything from her was in my car, listening to what was Jazz FM back then, and I heard her sing “Over and Over Again” which blew my mind enough to go home and seek out the album.

To put it simply, her vocal control is incredible, and she uses her voice like an instrument, and constantly changes and improvises melodies.

My words don’t really do just justice…Google some of her live performances to see what I mean, and check out the video below and leave me some comments please 🙂

My Favourite Albums of All Time

I’ve been meaning to blog this for a while, but here are, in no particular order, some of my favourite albums of all time! Every Monday for the next….however long it takes!

You know that feeling when you hear a song and you ask yourself a number of questions at the same time…

“What is that track? Where can I get it? DJ, I hope you back announce this one? Why haven’t I heard this before?”

Well ladies and gents: I present you,  Tommy Sims – Peace And Love

This gem from 2000 ticks so many boxes for me – live instruments, varied styles, strong songwriting, top arrangements and on-point vocals to name a few. You might have heard of Tommy Sims through his work with Israel Houghton, Ce-Ce Winans, Bruce Springsteen, Blackstreet and more.

I like the vibe of a whole album as a project that you can listen to from start to finish and go on a musical journey.

Better that you listen to it for yourself really though! It’s kinda hard to get hold of, but you can listen on in full on Spotify [side note if you don’t use Spotify…why not?]

Look out for another great album next week, and don’t forget to leave comments for me to let me know if I’ve missed the mark, or if you like it.

Big shout to Paul Aaron for introducing me to his work!
