Fire in the Youth

roxy_flyer

B-Side Players is a septet led by frontman Karlos Paez and including guitarist Giovanni Mejia, bass player Gerry Guevara, saxophonist Regan Branch, percussionists Victor Tapia and Luis Cuenca, and drummer Ryan Moran. The son of a musician, Paez spent a good deal of his time growing up on the road and formed the band in 1993 in San Diego. The group built a local following and won several San Diego music awards for their blend of Latin, funk, rock, and reggae, and have toured with artists ranging from Ben Harper to Papa Roach. The group issued Movement in September 2001, which culled material from two self-released records, Renacimeinto and Culture Of Resistence. The album included a guest appearance by Herbie Hancock drummer Mike Clark and a cover of the War classic “Spill The Wine”.

Angie Stone

Angie Stone

The one and only Angie Stone will grace the Roxy stage for one night only, October 1st, 2007.

A singer, a self-taught keyboardist, and a prolific songwriter, Angie Stone’s first claim to fame was being the lead vocalist on Vertical Hold’s smooth urban dance track “Seems You’re Much Too Busy.” An R&B Top 40 hit during the summer of 1993, it eventually led to a solo career, and her debut album Black Diamond was issued in 1999 by Arista. In six years, Stone had definitely gained an old-school, autobiographical vibe, exemplified by her hit ballad “No More Rain (In This Cloud),” which has samples from Gladys Knight and the Pips’ “Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye).” Contributors included Lenny Kravitz and former Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammad as producers, and Stone’s ex-boyfriend D’Angelo as a vocal guest on “Everyday.”

Stone, a native of Columbia, SC, began singing gospel music at a young age at First Nazareth Baptist Church. Her father, a member of a local gospel quartet, would take his only child to see performances by gospel artists such as the Singing Angels and the Gospel Keynotes. During her youth, she wrote poetry, played sports, and, after high-school graduation, was offered college basketball scholarships. While working dead-end jobs, Stone began saving money to record her own demos at a local studio called PAW. She joined Gwendolyn Chisolm and Cheryl Cook in the rap trio the Sequence, who recorded hits for Joe and Sylvia Robinson’s Sugarhill label — “Funk You Up,” a remake of Parliament’s hit “Tear the Roof Off the Sucker” called “Funky Sound (Tear the Roof Off),” and “I Don’t Need Your Love (Part One).” Soon after, Stone was working with futuristic rappers Mantronix and rocker Lenny Kravitz and formed the neo-soul trio Vertical Hold, who first charted with the Criminal single “Summertime.” Besides “Seems You’re Much Too Busy,” the group’s self-titled A&M album spawned another charting single, “ASAP.” She moved to J-Records in 2001 for her second record, Mahogany Soul, and the record cracked the Top 40 thanks to the pop/R&B hit “Brotha.” Three years later, her third record Stone Love became her biggest hit, with a number 14 placing. In 2004, Stone Love was issued, followed by a live recording of her greatest hits in 2005. – Ed Hogan, All Music Guide

Rock Opera

East Village Opera Company

You’ve heard opera, and you’ve heard rock—but you’ve never heard opera rocked like the East Village Opera Company. The East Village Opera Company —a powerhouse five-piece band, a string quartet, and two outstanding vocalists—brings the towering emotion and timeless musicality of opera into the 21st century on its Decca/Universal Classics debut with its inventive, hard-hitting arrangements of the music’s “greatest hits”—including “La donna è mobile” from Rigoletto, “Habanera” from Carmen, and “Nessun dorma” from Turandot — performed at full length and in the original languages.

The concept of the East Village Opera Company is totally fresh, but not unprecedented in pop. In 1985, for example, former punk-rock impresario Malcolm McLaren released Fans, an album of “hip-hopera” that brought funky beats and electronic programming to the works of Puccini and Bizet. But EVOC is a whole new thing: an integrated, eleven-strong working band dedicated to rocking the opera and electrifying the classics, as the ensemble has been doing to spectacular effect ever since its New York stage debut in the spring of 2004.

The East Village Opera Company is coming to The Roxy on Wednesday, September 19th. Tickets go on sale today at 11:00am at Ticketmaster or through the Roxy box office.

What do you get when you mix a bold, modelesque, mohawked chick with a boys name and an electro-funk-soul, uber-hip robotica boy with a name fit for a girl? What happens when you blend 1-part Electronica, 2-parts Soul, and a sprinkle of Funk and Hip-Hop? What do you think evolves when you take a little bit of yesterday, a little more of today, and a whole bunch of tomorrow and throw it in a boiling pot of magic musical fusion?

Maia Sharp

544083471_l.jpg

What do you do after scoring 2 top 10 Triple A singles on your latest release, headlining the country in support of that album, then taking off to tour with Bonnie Raitt on a 21 city run, all the while landing a cut on Trisha Yearwoods CD, three songs on Bonnie Raitts latest, three tracks on Edwin McCains current album (lending your vocals to all three releases) and getting a song on Mindy Smiths forthcoming record? Well if youre Maia Sharp you start your own label, put out an acoustic album, tour behind it and then head back into the studio to make your 2007 label release.

Sharps last studio album, 2005s Fine Upstanding Citizen (KOCH) garnered her critical raves and nationwide airplay on the singles Something Wild and Red Dress achieving top 10 chart status at R&R on both songs. Now with 4 national label releases (3 critically acclaimed solo albums and a 4th collaborative effort with Art Garfunkel) to her credit she found herself in a position where most artists may have felt entitled to a small break. Her next national label release being slotted for early 07 would have presented the ideal time to stop and smell the roses rather than race past them in a flurry of tour bus exhaust. However, with a growing demand for the songstress to perform, including 2 months opening for and singing with Bonnie Raitt in addition to her own headline shows, Sharp found herself with a lot of fans wanting more music faster than a labels pace would allow.

From that demand the idea for Eve & The Red Delicious was born. The tour offers kept coming in and more and more people were emailing me through the website, through myspace, coming up to me at shows etc. asking why I couldnt do a record a year. Sharp explains, Ive been fortunate to always have a label doing the behind-the-scenes work while still giving me creative control but the drawback is that Im at the mercy of their schedules. With 4 albums worth of label knowledge under my belt and time between F.U.C. and the next label record, I thought, why not take advantage and do an in-between cd thats more reflective of the live show. Im writing enough to release new material more often and Im lucky enough to have loyal fans that buy every record. It quickly became a no brainer.

Its that relentless drive that led Sharp to record an acoustic album with 5 new songs and 2 new versions of fan favorites from previous albums (Hardly Glamour Ark 21 Records, 1998 and 2005s Fine Upstanding Citizen on KOCH). Eve & The Red Delicious (taken from a line from the impossibly hooky Whole Flat World) was done as a duo with bass player Darren Embry. If I was going to pull this off it needed to be as true to the live performances as possible and with Darrens top shelf vocals and musicianship I feel we were able to accomplish that and have fun doing it. Sharp & Embry met while she and Jonatha Brooke were touring together. Im a huge Jonatha fan and I fully appreciate how musically challenging playing with her could be, so when I saw Darren up there slaying those bass and vocal parts I knew I had to work with him.

The album features Sharp on guitars, Rhodes, piano, saxophone (her first instrument) and percussion performing songs she wrote alone or co-wrote with, among others, acclaimed Americana songbird Kim Richey, Timbuk 3s Pat MacDonald and Bonnie Raitt collaborator David Batteau.

The Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist has seen about two dozen of her songs recorded by artists that run the genre gamut, from chart-topping pop acts to Rock and Roll Hall of Famers including Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Art Garfunkel, Edwin McCain, The Dixie Chicks, Paul Carrack, Cher and Mindy Smith to name a few.

Maia has written with Carole King, Jules Shear, Timothy B. Schmitt, David Wilcox, Amanda Marshall, Edwin McCain, Lisa Loeb, Mindy Smith, Howard Jones, The Go Gos, Billy Mann, Paul Carrack and many more.

In 1997, she signed with Miles Copelands Ark 21 label, on which her debut CD, Hardly Glamour, was released. It scored a Triple A radio hit with the rugged and haunting “I Need This to Be Love.” Later that year, she was nominated for Triple-A radio’s Artist of the Year and Cher recorded a version of one of the cds highlights, “Don’t Come Around Tonight on Its a Mans World.

Sharp then joined up with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock for their EMI/Blue Note trio project Everything Waits to Be Noticed co-writing several tracks, trading off lead vocals and harmonies with the legend and lending her saxophone chops to the project. Summarizing his time with Maia, Garfunkel simply says, In the tradition of great female artists, Karla Bonoff, Bonnie Raitt, Christine McVie, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan…..now enter Maia Sharp.”

At the same time, Concord Records released her self titled second solo album Maia Sharp to critical acclaim. The singles Willing to Burn and Crimes of the Witness both landed in the top 10 in the Triple A radio format. This was a very busy time for Sharp promoting both the Garfunkel project and her own simultaneously. After almost a year of off and on touring Sharp was back in the studio to record what ultimately became 05s Fine Upstanding Citzen on KOCH.

Look for East coast headline tour dates to promote Eve & The Red Delicious as well as upcoming Canadian dates with Bonnie Raitt in October.

It looks like, for now, the only roses Sharp will be able to stop and smell will be the ones backstage in her dressing room.

Lifesavas
From Rolling Stones Top 10 Artists to watch:

Hip-hop was still a fresh phenomenon when Vursatyl and Jumbo of Lifesavas met in Portland, Oregon, in the mid-Eighties. “People would tell me, ‘There’s another cat in town that dresses like you,'” recalls Vursatyl. “We were both wearing fat laces in our shoes, big bubble vests and goggles year-round. There were only a handful of us.” After spending the Nineties releasing material on their own label, Lifesavas dropped Spirit in Stone in 2003, on Quannum. But it’s their follow-up, Gutterfly, that should put them over the top. “We put it all on the table with this album,” says Vursatyl. “Who knows what will come after this?”

Now On

Hip-Hop lovers the world over have been inundated by cynics who think they’re part of a dying art form. On the contrary, the members of Now On are leading a rebirth of the very fundamentals that defined Hip-Hop thirty years ago: originality, voice, culture and of course, entertainment. In fusing and confusing this elemental barometer, Now On emerges with a grimy freshness unseen or heard to date. Consisting of emcees IX Lives (son of Larry “Squirrel” Demps of the legendary Dramatics) and Jackson Perry formerly of Funktelligence, together with Haircut of Athletic Mic League (AML), Now On is set to make their tenure in the music industry the very definition of Def.
