"A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep...This woman is on fire." -- The New York Times
One voice is all it takes. The right vocalist can make you fall in love at first listen, elicit tears, or bring you back to a different era altogether. A microphone and a stage remain the only necessities. That holds true for New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway chanteuse Morgan James. On her full-length debut for Epic Records, “Hunter,” she casts an unbreakable spell with a powerhouse voice, theatrical swing, and a soulful poise.
“Hunter” boasts powerful and personal renditions of Prince’s “Call My Name” (reached Top 15 at Urban AC radio and #1 most added) along with Hall & Oates' "She's Gone" and Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing In The Dark". Morgan assumed co-writing duties on eight of the collection’s eleven tracks and even performed all of her own background vocals and harmonies. She is proud to note that no vocal tuning of any kind has been used on any of her albums. From the empowering farewell of “Fed Up On You” to the mournful rumination of “Say The Words”, or the soulful duet with Grammy Award winner Robert Glasper, "Let Me Keep You", she continually bares it all—both emotionally and musically.
In addition to "Hunter", Morgan has released a live tribute to Nina Simone, "Morgan James Live", as well as an EP featuring some of her fan's favorite covers, "YouTube Sessions". (She can also be heard on countless theatre and concept soundtracks).
Since “Hunter’s” release, Morgan’s music videos have accumulated more than 45 million views (and climbing). With viral sensation Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, Morgan toured the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. She is currently touring with her band and in the midst of writing her next album!
Cameroon-born singer and songwriter Andy Allo is an artist who is truly paving her own path with a sound and vibe that is uniquely hers.
Andy released her first album, UnFresh in 2009 and two years later, joined Prince's New Power Generation as a singer/guitarist and worked with the legend on her sophomore album, Superconductor. That album featured a funk/soul sound and made it to #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. She has performed on Jimmy Kimmel, Guitar Center Sessions and showed her acoustic chops on Billboard Sessions Exclusive.
Now having released her third project, Andy is exploring her love for pop and rock. Her new EP, Hello, is an introduction into the next chapter of her story. Of her new direction, Andy explains, "I feel like this is just the beginning of my story. There's still a lot I want to share with the world."
Andy has toured extensively throughout Europe, US and most recently completed a short run with Enrique Iglesias and a solo residency in Los Angeles.
"We knew she'd be leading her own revolution soon," adds Prince. Indeed, that soon is now.
