LINDSEY WEBSTER

Posted by on Aug 13, 2016 in Featured | Comments Off on LINDSEY WEBSTER

If Sade was to take over Mariah Carey’s body and sing to tracks written by Steely Dan, the combination might hit somewhere close to Lindsey Webster’s sound. But until that happens, there will just be Lindsey. Lindsey’s debut album, ‘Lindsey Webster’, is a perfect first album. It explores the different facets of her and the band’s capabilities, and covers a lot of ground. A Soul/R&B artist Lindsey Webster combines an admirable natural talent with a genuine, accessible stage presence. On the heels of the successful self-titled debut album, her second album, ‘You Change” was released in July with Atlanta Records. Her music and show schedule can be found at...

Camera Soul

Posted by on Aug 13, 2016 in Featured | Comments Off on Camera Soul

Camera Soul is a powerful jazz-funk ensemble, produced by Mr. Marco Rossi of Azzurra Music (Verona) and released in the Americas by Kathryn Ballard Shut of TIMKAT Entertainment (Denver, Colorado). Inspired by legendary horn line, soul, R&B, and jazz-fusion artists such as Earth, Wind and Fire, The Commodores, Tower of Power, and Stevie Wonder, as well as neo-soul grooves by Erykah Badu and Jamiroquai, the group is based out of southern Italy (Bari), and led by veteran composer-arranger brothers Piero and Pippo Lombardo. Camera Soul’s distinctive sound is further defined by the smoky and soulful voice of lead vocalist, Serena Brancale on the group’s first two albums (2011-2013), and Maria Enrica Lotesoriere (2014). The group features a world-class lineup of studio and live performance musicians, including Pippo Lombardo (piano), Beppe Sequestro (bass), Francesco Palmitessa (lead guitar), Gianluca Cardellicchio (rhythm guitar), Liviana Ferri (percussion), Mimmo Campanale (drums, 2011-2013), Daniele Scannapieco and Bruno Tassone (saxes), Gianfranco Campagnoli (trumpet and flugelhorn), and Piero Dotti (background vocals). On Not For Ordinary People, the Brothers Lombardo also led a stellar global songwriting team. Together with their compositions, they also welcomed original music and lyrics from Serena Brancale and Denver-based jazz pianist and ASCAP composer, Kathryn Ballard Shut. The group has released two albums – Words Don’t Speak (2011) and...
