Jane Smith, a band from the South East of England, play a blend of beautifully crafted songs in a classic vein. Soulful and meaningful phrases and hooks set to melodies that stay in the head, Jane Smith’s official release date for this single (See The Truth) isn’t until September 20, 2010; but you can buy it on pre-release here! Otherwise you won’t be able to get your hands on this baby until later this month! If you like John Mayer, Bryan Adams, Train, David Gray, Dave Mathews Band, Coldplay, Stereophonics, Maroon Five, Incubus, The Black Keys, U2, The Fray or miss your fix of Phil Collins – you’re gonna LOVE this band! They recently beat out 123 other musicians to win one of the top 3 slots in the Whotune.com Singles competition. The band was formed by singer songwriter Nick Barclay, Kev Willison and Paul Bowman, joined by Kevin Powell on Bass and Nathan Ariss on Keyboards, and more recently featuring on guitar Ronnie Douglas. Jane Smith's sound is described as mature, thoughtful, inspiring, the songs of Nick Barclay and Kev Willison are performed by a stunning group of musicians who are bringing the Jane Smith sound alive. Nick is the driving force behind Jane Smith, a lyricist and songwriter whose music carries unashamedly positive influences with a unique voice that people have compared in quality to some of the great singers Steve Marriot, Paul Carrack , but as he says himself the voice and the songs making the connection with the audience is all that matters. Previously Nick was involved in dance music production but found that he missed the real songs and inspiration that comes with playing on the stage with fellow musicians. Jane Smith will be embarking on a short festival tour to promote their debut single "See The Truth" available to download at Whotune.com starting September 20th. - Quoted from Record Label Description

If you are bright, you'll notice the title is a play on the Hippocratic Oath. The set was recorded live on April 20 -yes, 420, both Benson and ARTISTdirect get the joke- at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis. The release on Comedy Central Records comes with a bonus DVD including full, uncensored versions of his two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials. Uncensored? Now you are speaking my language. Though he is sometimes "too trunk to dweet," Benson has amassed over 70,000 followers on Twitter with lines including "I have HIV. But don't worry, I still get to draw four more scrabble tiles." Don't be fooled by his laid-back delivery - Benson is as sharp as comics come and his jokes appeal to smokers and non-smokers alike. Covering everything from the importance of time-saving abbreviations such as "deets" to his 2010 "Pot The Vote" tour in California, the former Marijuana-Logues star gets audiences high on laughs.

Born Stefani Germanotta on March 28, 1986,... Lady Gaga is a theatrical dance-pop performer whose debut single, the international chart-topping hit "Just Dance," established her as an up-and-coming superstar upon its release in 2008. Born Stefani Germanotta on March 28, 1986, the Yonkers native attended Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private all-girl Catholic school in Manhattan, before proceeding to study music at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts at age 17. Influenced by flamboyant glam rockers such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury (she would later draw her stage name from the Queen song "Radio Ga-Ga") as well as '80s dance-poppers such as Madonna and Michael Jackson, she began playing the piano at a young age and started writing original material as a teenager. In 2007, she began to make a name for herself on the downtown Manhattan club scene with a performance art show billed as Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue (co-featuring Lady Starlight; born Colleen Martin, a DJ and makeup professional), and music industry insiders began to take note. While Lady Gaga was initially signed to Def Jam in 2007, nothing came of that association, and ultimately it was pop-rap superstar Akon who took her under his wing, signing her to his vanity label Kon Live in association with Interscope Records. In addition to working for Interscope as an in-house songwriter, Lady Gaga began preparing the launch of her solo career. Her debut single, "Just Dance," was released to radio in April 2008, and her full-length album debut, The Fame, followed in August. Featuring fellow Akon affiliate Colby O'Donis, "Just Dance" slowly gathered momentum throughout 2008's latter half. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in August, at which time it had already become a massive club hit, but it didn't reach number one until January 2009. Internationally, the song proved similarly popular, reaching the Top Ten throughout much of Western Europe and beyond. In the wake of Lady Gaga's international breakthrough success with "Just Dance," the follow-up single "Poker Face" was an even larger hit, topping singles charts across the board with its combination of pop melodicism and club-worthy production. Two additional tracks -- "LoveGame" and "Paparrazi" -- also cracked the Top Ten, and The Fame was still enjoying a spot on the Billboard Top 40 when its follow-up, The Fame Monster, appeared in November 2009. Although originally planned as a bonus disc (to be packaged alongside The Fame in a deluxe edition of Lady Gaga's debut), The Fame Monster was quickly expanded to eight tracks, thus warranting its own release. Meanwhile, the leadoff single "Bad Romance" became Gaga's fifth consecutive Top Ten single. - Quoted from Amazon

The stunning new effort by internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter David Gray -- begins with those evocative and somewhat mysterious words. What follows is an extraordinary song cycle of rare and timeless power that bears a rather fitting title. As people today may or may not remember, the word “foundling” is defined as “an infant found after its unknown parents have abandoned it.” And as Gray puts it with a warm laugh, “Foundling sort of arrived at my door without my asking it to, so it felt very appropriate for this album.” In a sense, Foundling also marks another notable arrival -- the second coming of David Gray’s own second coming -- and one that truly “sprung like a wild orchid” in its own right. By 2005, Gray had already enjoyed what has been a rather distinguished career as a singer-songwriter and recording artist, having sold more than 12 million albums, including his global left-field smash, 1998’s White Ladder, which remains the single best selling album in Irish history. Gray had by this point already won two Ivor Novello Awards, a Q award, two Brit nominations and a GRAMMY nomination. But not a man or artist content to ever rest on his laurels, Gray decided that the time has come to shake things up in a significant way. So in 2006, David Gray decided to disband his longtime backing group, and to attempt to reconnect with his music before recording his excellent 2009 album Draw The Line with a new group of players at his studio The Church. “Draw the Line was essentially about the band, and four people playing together in a room,” says Gray. “But you can’t just keep going for unlimited takes. So on days when I felt everyone was getting a bit worn down and frayed at the edges -- and that it might be good to give everyone a little space -- I’d go into the studio on my own or maybe with one other person. I’d either work on tracks we already recorded or try to record other songs with just me on piano or guitar. That’s a lot of what eventually became Foundling. In essence, foundling became an alternate musical universe to Draw The Line. As Gray puts it,“ Foundling was an album done in slices of time in between band recording sessions. Eventually, I had the thought of recording and then mixing two separate albums during the same time period, so I then went back and took a closer look at the tracks and recorded a few overdubs and attempted to add a few finishing touches so that they sounded more complete. That’s how Foundling became like a tapestry that I hung on the other side of The Church. And I kept walking over and making little marks on it, and before you knew it, what started off as a side project was holding my attention as well as the main work.” - Quoted from Amazon

Universal Motown Records singer-songwriter-producer KEM has announced that he will release his third album, Intimacy, preceded by a series of online promotional videos that will reintroduce him to the marketplace by offering an intimate preview of what’s to come. The new CD is the Detroit native’s long awaited follow-up to his critically acclaimed and certified gold 2005 disc, KEM Album II. Intimacy was inspired by KEM’s deeply personal lessons on intimacy and it will allow fans to experience him unlike ever before musically, lyrically, and visually. For the first time in his career, KEM will lay all of his cards on the table and grant fans the opportunity to get up close and personal while delivering a 10-song collection of timeless music for the grown and sexy. Intimacy features vocal and production collaborations with the likes of Grammy-winning soul diva Jill Scott and the late Motown legend David J. Van dePitt, who famously produced Marvin Gaye’s 1971 masterpiece, What’s Going On. Scott delivers enchanting verses of spoken word in “Golden Days,” while Van dePitt arranged the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s string section on the first single, a gorgeous ballad called “Why Would You Stay.” Los Angeles producer Rex Rideout (Luther Vandross, Angie Stone) also joined KEM in the studio to help round out the Intimacy listening experience. The result is a richer sound buttressed by classical instruments and a greater range of musical styles that will certainly expand KEM’s audience by garnering success across multiple formats, including pop, R&B, and urban adult contemporary. - Quoted from Amazon

Anybody who likes the sounds of Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, Freddie Jackson, Al Green and Marvin Gaye is going to feel blessed for discovering Randy Wilson! For singer and songwriter Randy Wilson, a career in music has been a dream deterred. This talented R&B artist is completing his second project “Up Close and Personal” for which he wrote all the songs, and is looking forward to the future. He is poised and ready to step back onto the music scene and realize his dreams of success. Growing up in Oakland, Califronia, his interest in music came about when he was 8 years old, along with football and baseball. A short while later his interest in music developed into a passion. His childhood friend’s older brother played drums in a group called “Bits & Pieces”. He was later chose to be the lead singer. The group performed at small nightclubs and hotels around the greater Bay Area for several years. The band eventually parted ways and Randy decided to pursue his interest in recording. His musical influences were artists such as Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross. He also started his own small record label called “Regal Records” with help from a friend. Three months later he recorded his first single, “Something Inside”. The single was well received and garnered local radio play and also captured the attention of local promoter Paul Mack, Jr. He was soon opening shows for artists such as the Temptations, The OJays, Denise Williams, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Toni! Tony! Tone!, Roy Ayers, Stanley Clarke and many others. His 1987 CD project created a buzz with local promoters and radio so he began shopping for a record deal. Every major record label that Randy hit, the feedback was “Wow, you sound just like Luther”. While Randy loved that people said he sounded like Luther Vandross, his goal was for listeners to recognize and appreciate his own style of vocals. Letting his passion, sensitivity and vulnerability set him apart, Randy began honing his signature sound with the support of his family and inspiration from his mother, who is also a singer. One day a friend passed him a tape with music that “changed everything”. He bagan writing his own lyrics about experiences with family, friends and the daily challenges of life. “Love is such a powerful emotion and life is a gift from God. Music drives me,” says Randy. Randy recently shared the stage at the Conga Room in LA with R&B greats Stevie Wonder, Lenny Williams, D’Wayne Wiggins of Toni! Tony! Tone!, Jamie Fox and Raphael Saadiq in a benefit fundraiser and received kudos for his performance.

This has got to be the most interesting story I've heard in years. A private investigator and vinyl-junkie stumbles upon what seems to be garbage at a flea market in downtown DC: a collection of handmade cardboard albums with amazing painted cover art, liner notes, serial numbers and even cardboard "records" inside dating from the late 60's and early 70's. Realizing these records, over 50 LPs, at least as many 45s and lyric sheets, were more than mere refuse, Dori Hadar put his detective skills to work and soon located the mystery soul superstar the world had never heard of, Mingering Mike, nearly 30 years after he created these albums. A friendship soon formed between Dori and Mike and together they decided to shine a light on the body of work that Mike had kept secret for decades. They made public the audio and visual diary made during Mike's formative years, from a teenager who dreamed of becoming a star to an adult who faced the Vietnam draft, civil unrest in the nation's capitol, the scourge of drugs in the inner city and all the amazing music to come out of those turbulent years. Mike's work seen as a whole is truly a document of one man's experience during America's most creative and destructive periods. The book and the exhibit (if you can make it to DC) are truly mind-blowing. Don't sleep on this. With stories from the New York Times, The New Yorker, Wax Poetics, The Fader, Flaunt, Tokion and Entertainment Weekly, among many others, heaping praise on the new book, Mingering Mike: The Amazing Career of an Imaginary Soul Superstar (2007, Princeton Architectural Press) the most celebrated outsider-artist since the discovery of Henry Darger is finally getting his due. Currently, most of Mingering Mike's work is on display through the end of July at Hemphill Fine Arts in Washington DC. A portion of the work was also displayed at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in 2005. There are currently plans to have the show travel to LA, NY and Europe. A limited edition vinyl 45 of "There's Nothing Wrong with You Baby" is due to be released in a few weeks courtesy of the Vanguard Squad. A CD of Mike's music interpreted by current artists is in the works as well.
