Originally from Pine Bluff, AR, rapper YB has spent most of his life on the road, not quite belonging in any one place. Despite a challenging upbringing, YB explained that he found the presence of God at a young age. However, it wasn’t until his college years, when a local college pastor in Camden, AR paid for YB to go to a Passion conference, that he decided that “his life needed reworked.” Through music, mentors, and his relationship with his now-wife, Tammy, YB found his call to pastoral ministry, as well as a burning passion to use hip-hop to impact the lives of the next generation.

Nigerian Afro-pop duo El’Vee had their new music video featured on RockDafuqOut.

I love getting submissions from around the world.  Taking a glimpse into what is happening musically at different corners of the globe is always inspiring to me – and today we are sharing our first tune out of Nigeria.

Twin sisters El’Vee have recently released their new tune, “Feelings”, along with an official music video and the vibe is super on point.  The blend of Electronic/Pop production and melodies mixed with authentic and traditional African rhythms and harmonies make this an absolute jam for me.

Hey there! Today we are premiering the debut album, ‘Coalesce‘ by NYC/London-based, prog/alt metal project, ASCENDING DAWN. The record releases tomorrow i.e. on the 1st of December and we thought we’d let you a good chance ts a progressive metal project spearheaded by the multi talented Marlain Angelides. She has successfully planted her feet in every endeavour she has chosen and emerged victorious, some of her accolades are she’s a graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, previous vocalist of a top-charting Greek pop band, Hi-5, West End performer, representative of Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest, and background vocalist for world-touring acts. She is also the current front-woman of the all-girls Led Zeppelin band, LEZ ZEPPELIN, showcasing her wide range of vocal talents that drive the heavy yet melodic sound of Ascending Dawn.That is some major feathers on her hat!
 
 

Really great interview with Crys Matthews up on The Bluegrass Situation today!

After she describes her multi-faceted identity, Americana and country soul singer/songwriter Crys Matthews laughs with a slight trace of self-deprecation, “I’m the poster child for intersectionality, right?!” She is.

While each and every day, on each and every media platform, we’re reminded of the division, alienation, marginalization, and divisiveness rampant in our country (and our world), we’re not often enough met with people like Matthews who exist as reminders of what beauty can occur when we bridge those divides.

A native of the South and the daughter of a preacher, this Americana-creating, Black lesbian — who is in an interracial marriage — understands and appreciates the myriad ways her background informs her ability to help others empathize with those with whom they might assume they have nothing in common. With her recent full-length album, The Imagineers, and her compassionate, politically charged EP, she is recruiting an “Army of Lovers,” despite all of the divides — real or perceived — that come between us, driving out hate not with hate, but with love.

Africa-based singer Connie wants you to “Remember” her past relationships with her, check out the Singer’s Room Exclusive!

Connie

Africa-based R&B singer Connie premieres the new single, “Remember,” a song that calls out the opposite sex for their selfish ways.

“Remember when you told me that you wanted me / Remember when you told me that you need me / Remember when you told me that it’s just me,” she recalls on the feel-good track.

“‘Remember’ is a song about loving someone who doesn’t deserve you,” Connie tells Singersroom. “This song is about a good girl who gives her all to a “bad-boy” who always finds his way back to the bad girls of his past. Some people never change.”

“Remember” was produced by Cape Town’s Kosher Studios and FiveStar Beats (USA), and will appear on Connie’s upcoming EP, a body of work that will represent women like her.
