TwinSpirit

WHO IS TwinSpirit?

Neo2soul welcome to the stage Atlanta vocalist TwinSpirit. Her  eclectic flavor is a tasty blend of jazz, hip-hop, and soul, sprinkled with a dash of rock and served up with a side of funk. It’s smothered in sexiness and served piping hot. All of which is blended to bring you her own uniquely flavored brew of “Hypnotic Jazzy Soul with a Kick Ass Punch”.

Since being able to walk TwinSpirits unique crowd capturing performance style and vocal ability was apparent. Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas this singer/songwriter has been afforded the opportunity to showcase her unique talent at a multitude of notable venues and events all across the US.

TwinSpirit – Loving

As a member of the Female R&B Trio “Authentik Soul” from 1995 -1999 TwinSpirit greatly developed her professional performance style. The group performed at events & festivals all across the US & shared the stage with great artist such as the O’Jays, Tamia, Ray J, Benito & H-Town.

After four artistically enriching years with “Authentik Soul” the members collectively agreed to pursue different creative endeavors. Confident with her decision to strike out in a new direction TwinSpirit soon found her niche, as the lead singer for one of the hottest regional bands “Afrodesia”. This act took the region by storm with their hot blend of soulful jazz inspired world music and reggae.

TwinSpirit  was voted UK based SaveOurSoul Artist of the Year. She was also selected as a finalist in the Indie Music Awards 2006 & 2007 and most recently placed as a finalist in the Sankofa Soul Contest in Paris, France.

Twin Spirit 3rd Independent CD Project entitled “My Beautiful Ugly” will drop this Spring as well as launching the GET NAKKED ONLINE: Self Love Movement. ( http://www.GetNakkedOnline.com )

Her “My Beautiful Ugly” started years ago before she even joined any bands, or even began collaborating as a songwriter, it arose from her journey through life. The journey we all take that brings us pain, joy, adventure and love.

These emotions needed a form of expression and she found her vessel through music, lyric, and poetry. Twin recalls; for a long time these reflections have been hidden in tattered notebooks or jotted on any piece of paper I could find at the moment of inspiration. The day to share these songs with the world has arrived.

Meagan McNeal

You have seen the footage countless times. They usually all unfold in a similar fashion. You know, the young child, whom the audience thinks is going to sing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” or “I’m a Little Tea Pot”, suddenly and seemingly out of nowhere belts out a song that nobody possibly their age could sing.

The first preview of a young superstar destined to be in the spotlight. Add Meagan McNeal to that list. Performing at her aunt’s wedding at the age of 9, Meagan sang Steve Wonder’s “You and I” (We Can Conquer the World) a performance that will not be forgotten. “That little one is going to be somebody someday”

Flashing forward to the present, the 24 year- old vocalist and Chicago native has surprised crowds in a similar fashion as she did when she was a child. Launching her solo career in 2007, she has opened for the likes of Jon B, Sam Jenkins, The Velvelettes of the legendary Motown Records, and also done background vocals for artists; from Eminem to the O’Jays.

In between bringing her angelic and commanding voice to countless stages in the Chicago and Michigan area during her years as a student at Western Michigan, Meagan spent her last two summers in Los Angeles, California.

There to be working as an intern for Hidden Beach Recordings, a label which include such greats as Jill Scott, Al B Sure, and Kindred, she also found time to record music and perform in some of LA’s premier music venues to standing ovations.

You can call it time well spent as Meagan will be calling Los Angeles home to continue pursuing her music career. Currently, Meagan just returned home from  an overseas tour and currently released her debut project titled “Mindset”. According to McNeal, the project portrays life in all its splendor, from its roadblocks to its successes.

This will be a must listen for fans that enjoy an eclectic mix of Neo Soul, Jazz, and R&B. From songs of love, peace and self discovery, she is well on her way into evolving into the star she is destined to be.

Sing Meagan!

KayJay

KayJay strives to create real music for people who are looking for something with more substance than your ‘run-of-the-mill’ Pop/RnB. Bringing the Fun back to Funky but with a no nonsense attitude.

Desperate and growing ever so weary of today’s so-called rnb melodies I went on the  hunt praying to the music gods, My aprayers was answered I came across this soul artist KayJay she takes me back to when real rnb, soul, funk, swing, which was blazing the radio and dancefloor back in my dayz. I took in her forthcoming “Intuition” EP rich with tracks created to leave a lasting impression, each song entails an powerful voice with a chicly style.

Pay close attention to the catchy lyrics and oldschool swingbeat flavor of “Natural High” she takes it back to music. “Hold On You” continues the vibes flowing  with nice rnb uptempo groove very catchy. We move over to this funk in your face feet stomping track “This Feeling” she really gets down. The title track of EP “Intuition” is a midtempo flavor which make me feel happy knowing that there are still artists willing to make real soul/rnb music.

Next up is one of my favourite tracks “You Shoulda Never “ bumping uptempo jam with kinda influence of the track Montell Jordan This Is How We Do It track. On “Paradise” she sing soft, with that unique voice, her lyrics are easy to understand which makes the song easier to experience. “Nothing Going On” is remix nice oldskool funky beat would like to know what the original sounds like.

I was pleasantly impressed and surprised by what I heard because the way the music industry putting quantity over quality out who knows . That why i believe that the real artists with high-quality music are underground and unsigned. What immediately impressed me was the sheer sound quality of the tracks, each track offers a completely different sound and flavor. Many of them I would place within the R&B sound category along the neo soul sound range. Yet, there are elements of funky beats that weave their way throughout.
