Induce Releases Latest Single “Pretty” From Upcoming Album, Halfway Between Me And You

The always soulful Induce has released his latest single, “Pretty” b/w “Get Down Saturday Night,” produced by Induce and Manuvers, respectively. His upcoming album, Halfway Between Me And You, is distributed through Fat Beats (physical/digital).

Halfway Between Me And You is a long time coming. Ever since the early age of five, while singing Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” in a department store, Induce has been tuning his voice for this moment. In addition to his DJ career, he realized his untapped potential for crafting and writing songs. Joined by friends Manuvers, Mr. Familiar (Solange Knowles, 50 Cent) and Jack Splash (of Plant Life), the album became a family affair.

Exclusive Interview with Gregory Porter + MP3

We have an exclusive interview with Gregory Porter, whose album Water rose to the top of the Jazz charts rapidly after its release in May 2010. Check out what Gregory had to say about the new generation of jazz, his own path so far and his other hidden skills.

Your debut album Water has quickly risen to the Top Ten of the Jazz charts. Congrats! Were you expecting such a positive response to this album?

I was hoping for a positive response….I have an artistic impatience inside of me that wants to communicate with people..I want to talk about human emotions and joys and pains…I do it with live shows but it’s a beautiful thing to do it on a large scale with a recording.  Its fun getting an email or Facebook message from someone in some far out place I’ve never been, telling me how they love my music.

Name a few of your all-time-favorite albums.

Kind of Blue: Miles Davis
Swiss Movement: Les McCann
Anything from Leon Thomas
Live… at the sands: Nat King Cole
Now!:  Bobby Hutcherson with Gene McDaniels

Gregory Porter: “Pretty” + MP3

Our friends at AMG have dubbed Gregory Porter to be “up there with José James,” as far as male vocalists in the amorphous genre called Jazz. You know how we feel about José James, and we’re more than grateful to hear all this new male vocal talent.

Download the song “Pretty” from his album Water. “Love makes us all crazy,” he says of this song. A soulful tribute to a woman from Porter’s past, “Pretty” is an understated ensemble piece that is bolstered by the alto sax work of Yoske Sato.
