Soldier of Love hits stores on February 9th.
Four years and four million album sales after her self-titled debut album comes Corinne Bailey Rae‘s long-awaited second album, The Sea. For the 30 year-old singer and songwriter from Leeds, this meant politely declining the suggestions that she work with this or that big-league producer in this or that big-money studio. The first single “I’d Do It All Again,” one of many highlights on album, is a sweeping, defiant declaration of love and faith. The Sea will undoubtedly elevate Bailey Rae beyond her already-considerable achievements and put her up there with the all-time greats.

Soon to be released, Nikki & Rich’s debut album is a sparkling collection of exuberant ’60s-inspired gems. Thanks to Nikki Leonti’s sassy, high-stepping vocal quality, she captures all the fun and vitality of classic ’60s girl groups, but as heard on “Cat & Mouse,” the sound is made thoroughly modern by Rich Velonskis’ hard-hitting, radio-ready beats and keyboard textures. Imagine The Chiffons’ Judy Craig or The Marvelettes’ Gladys Horton backed by OutKast and you’re not far off.
8 PM show. 21+ w/ID.
Space is limited. Entry is free but strictly RSVP only.
On January 12th, an earthquake struck the nation of Haiti, leveling buildings, trapping thousands beneath the rubble and devastating the country’s already meager resources. In the aftermath of the disaster, the world has witnessed the terrible human impact of the earthquake and many have sought to find some small measure of hope in the face of such tragedy by doing whatever they can to help the people of Haiti. In that spirit, DJBooth.net invited artists from around the world to submit music to support relief efforts. The result is Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief, a compilation album whose proceeds will go entirely to the humanitarian organization CARE.
The album features original and unreleased music from Justin Garner, K. Sparks, Novel, O’Neal McKnight, Pastor Troy and many more. “One of my favorite sayings is ‘Actions speak louder than words,’” states Brian Zisook, DJBooth.net VP & Editor In Chief. “We were thrilled to have over 100 artists submit to the project and from that we are making 25 of our favorite tracks available on Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief.”
DJBooth.net’s Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief is available for high-quality download at djbooth.bandcamp.com/album/rhymes-rhythm-for-relief for a minimum donation of $5.
