Video – Zo! “Count to Five”

Hey Soulsters! Ok, I’m a little behind on this one, but when I found it I just had to share. Check out the video below for Zo!’s, “Count To Five” featuring Gwen Bunn. This song happens to be my favorite single from the album, “ManMade” released on May 21st. Whenever I listen to this album, I always play this song at least six or seven times. It’s that addictive. Zo! is part of The Foreign Exchange Family. If you are into the underground music scene like I am then you BETTER know who that is! If not, then this is a good introduction. Zo’s music is so fun and soulful. The beats and rhythms he creates as the foundation for his songs are like nothing you are hearing out here today. The concept of the video is clever, very creative and a little out there. I do get the concept and I am diggin’ it. It’s like an homage to Sesame Street and watching Phonte (Go on boy!) gives me life! He is hilarious in this! I enjoyed Gwen Bunn’s performance in this vid also since her presence matches the vocals to a tee. Her easy going style and soul child personality comes out at you. They just make you want to join in the fun. This song and video makes me smile 🙂

CD Spotlight – PJ Morton “New Orleans”

PJ Morton

PJ Morton is no longer in the category of Indie Music Artist, however, I just listened to his latest album “New Orleans” released on Cash Money Records last month, and I was absolutely blown away! I had to give him a mention, because every song on this album is GREAT for lack of a better word. You can ride this album out from beginning to end, and it lives up to its title. New Orleans is known for its Gumbo and Jambalaya and this album represents just that. It has every genre of music, R&B Soul, Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop and even Reggae. The featured artists on New Orleans also represent a tasty mix with artists such as Stevie Wonder (my absolute Music God), Adam Levine, Tweet (impatiently waiting for her next release), Busta Rhymes and Little Wayne. PJ Morton really “put his foot” in this release and it shows so much growth from his 2005 independent debut, “Emotions”. Please add this to your music collection. It is definitely a must have for any real music lover. “New Orleans” is a perfect mix of seasonings and spices for the ears. Enjoy!
