Congratulations to miss Cole Williams for winning our October Next Step Artist Spotlight!

An East Flatbush native, Cole Williams blends the richness of her Jamaican and Brooklyn roots to create music mixing soul, reggae, ska, afro beat, and rock. Growing up listening to an an eclectic mix of Yolanda Adams, Mighty Sparrow, Jackson 5, and Bob Marley, one can assume correctly that this young woman is bursting with flavor. At times, she also reminds us just a little bit of Res – you know we’re not mad at that.

Her list of accolades, which include a Swedish Grammy nomination, aren’t modest either. To date, Cole has shared the stage with Lisa Lisa, Little Jackie, Imani Coppola, Big Brooklyn Red, Dana Fuchs, Honey LaRochelle, and Maya Azucena as well as recorded background vocals for Diane Birch and Joss Stone.

Might we add that she’s also performed on The Today Show and The Conan O’Brien Show, amongst others. Oh, and you can catch her as the singer in the new Cover Girl commercial with Drew Barrymore and as well as a Special K commercial that will be running at the end of the month. Fancy much.

This past September, the artist released an album named Out Of The Basement, Part 1, which you can stream in full below. Also, above you can find the gorgeous video for the instantly nostalgic “Little Me,” which we are absolutely delighted to premiere. Think late 90′s, early 00′s R&B.

Currently, you can catch Cole performing weekly at Asselna’s Sunday brunch gig at the new Gansevoort Hotel in NYC. She’s also mixing her next album!

New Release: Joss Stone – LP1 + Free MP3 & Videos

 


Joss Stone‘s first album on her own label, Stone’d Records, is out today! Aptly titlted, LP1 shows Joss taking total creative control; a fresh piano-driven rock sound blends the innate emotive soulfulness of Stone’s vocals with the raw bareness of traditional blues.

The Grammy award-winning singer co-wrote and co-produced the album with super-producer Dave Stewart – not bad at all for the inaugural album on your own label. Congrats to Joss!

In case you missed it, be sure to watch the album video teaser that we posted back in June!

Also, peep Joss’ cute interview about living in a van in the forest on The Late Late Show as well as a live performance on Jay Leno after the jump.

This is also the first album where she’s had total creative freedom, co-writing and co-producing with super-producer Dave Stewart. “This is most fun I’ve ever had making a record,” she says. LP1 will be available in the US on July 26th. In the meantime, check out the teaser video above.
