Detroit, MI, February 29, 2012Even though the day of Motown topping the charts are behind us, Detroit has not failed at continually producing the most talented and inspiring artists the industry has ever seen. One of those artists, ZanYe’, has been often described as “The World’s Best Kept Gem”. ZanYe’ brings a unique pure sound of soul music to the hearts of her listeners and has a love for Jazz, Soul, R&B and Gospel served up with a pure touch of class ever since she fell in love with music very early in life.

Triumphantly, the woman with the golden voice also has a painful past. After surviving a life of growing up with both parents being addicted to drugs, ZanYe’ has now begun to tell her story through her music that is inspiring her fans throughout the country.

The “My Story TODAY” Exclusive Album Release Party will be held on March 4th 2012 at the Plush Resto-Lounge conveniently located at 13090 Inkster Rd in Redford, Michigan at 5:30 pm.

Music review: Emily King – Seven

Seven - Emily King

So a good friend over at Bright Lights For Dim People  sent this EP to me and I have been playing it nonstop.  Apparently, Emily’s been making great music for a while and was signed to J Records in 1996 and released an album entitled “East Side Story”. This is the first time I’ve heard it but I am so glad I did. This is the first full album I’ve been willing to pay for in a while…I suggest you do the same.  It’s worth the $7 and you can support a beautiful and talented artist who is also currently on tour with Maroon 5 by the way….

It’s obvious she’s a soul singer but influenced by folk and rock as well. The result? The album Seven….check it out, just click on the album cover.

Aren’t you glad you have friends like me? Enjoy! 🙂

At age 16, Shalaundra begged her mother to help her pursue a career as a model, actress, and singer. In 2005, her opportunity came and she auditioned and received a scholarship to Barbizon School of Modeling.
In 2006, Shalaundra unofficially renamed herself Shailaun and graduated from high school and Barbizon with both a high school diploma and a certificate for modeling. Months later Shailaun joined a national modeling tour, The Vogue Esquire Models of Chicago. In  2008, her final year on tour, Shailaun was awarded and honored as Vogue Esquire’s model of the year.

Alex Chadwick Releases His Highly Anticipated Mixtape, “IJustWannaRap”

Alex Chadwick

November 14, 2011: Hip Hop isn’t dead, it’s just underground. The long awaited mixtape by Alex Chadwick is a perfect example of what happens when a talented hip hop artist with a passion for music records 18 of the most memorable tracks to ever be released by an independent artist . IJustWannaRap is Chadwick’s first highly publicized recording since his debut as part of the 3rd Brillyance rap group signed under Rawkus Records in 2007 under the “Rawkus 50” campaign.
Alex Chadwick (who goes by his first and middle name) was born in Baton Rouge , Louisiana in 1983 where he grew up on artists like Master P, The Hot Boys, UGK, Eightball & MJG, just to name a few. Although being influenced by this kind of rap, listeners would describe his sound as east coast, underground or backpack. He started rapping at the tender age of 9 when he and his friends rhymed over beats played on drum sets made of buckets. His musical talent is evident in his mastery of his lyrical abilities, the bass guitar and piano.

The group 3rd Brillyance was formed in Germany in 2006 by members Alex Chadwick and Madd Astronoma. The producer/MC duo met through a mutual friend and after low expectations of each others’ music, was blown away on the first listen and instantly knew they needed to work together. This chemistry is part of what made their music so significant. After combining their styles and making music for nearly a year, a competition revealed by Rawkus Records caught 3rd Brillyances’ attention. In February 2007 Rawkus announced the “Rawkus 50” competition where 50 independent rap artists would be chosen to release an album on Rawkus and given the opportunity to take their career from rapping on the corner to being supported by one of Hip Hops most trusted brands. 3rd Brillyance was one of the selected and their debut album “Grass Roots” was released in 2007 and they embarked on an international tour which included stops in Japan and Germany.

Although music is in his heart, Chadwick chose to pursue a career in the U.S Air Force and is currently serving our country in the Middle East. Despite his currently deployment, Alex Chadwick’s solo mixtape project “IJustWannaRap” was released under 3rd Brylliance Music Group on November 4th, 2011. Hip Hop lovers can download the free mixtape by visiting and can follow 3rd Brillyance on Twitter @3rdbrillyance.
