I went to a private invite party for Ms. Raye 6’s birthday party and her friend Instagram’d this which sums up so much about her.
“Women are going to form a chain, a greater sisterhood than the world has ever known!” Sisterhood is real!! —
Raye6 is explosive, mysterious and can be down right demanding, but she deserves it. (in our mind at least) She recently went to the UK for a mini tour and recording session… which was a personal present from a dear loved one which we thought was super special and she is about to drop the body of work titled , “Journey to Lifted Sand”. A UK blogger stated, “The fourth performance of the night, was from an amazing young woman, with an incredible and powerful voice that blew the audience away, if you havent guessed by now.. I’m talking about the wonderful Raye 6. Coming all the way from the US of A, Raye 6 put on a great show, that had the audience woo’ing and ooh’ing. Raye 6 bought a different type of energetic vibe to the show that intrigued the audience. Her voice as well as her style was very unique and had many people asking questions such as ‘Who is she?’ and ‘Why have I not heard of her before?’.”
What they call experimental R&B you will find a gem of a singer out of LA named Kelala who recently was featured on billboard.com. Her music career kicked off when Solange booked her as an opening act on her latest tour. Currently under the Fade to Mind label she was recently asked by billboard.com,
What did you think when Solange asked you to be on Saint Heron?
“I thought it was great, wonderful, amazing. I really do like Solange, sincerely. I’m down for her and I trust her judgment. It’s awesome to be included and I know and appreciate the contributions of the other artists. It’s nice to be presented to the world in that context, especially because it does spill over into the non-indie contexts of R&B and urban music, which matters to me.”
The lastest video directed by Jude MC featuring Kelala along with labelmate Kingdom on “Bankhead” which has a very intergalactic and earthy feel. We look forward to catching up with her at a show to experience just what everyone is talking about but in the meantime check out Kelela’s “Cut 4 Me” mixtape on Soundcloud.
Ok so for those that don’t know tour life can and is exhausting but to be a lady on tour and always trying to be on your A game is quite the feet sometimes. Well, Justina is killing them with her Jersey style, down-to-earth essence and looking real good while on the mic as she tours city to city. She also has some behind the scenes video so make sure you check it out, I promise you will get a laugh. If you’re in a city where she is performing DO NOT MISS HER SHOW!!
