The best ones are unsigned… This is my professional and one might add very opinionated position. I have been doing this for about two years now, receiving music daily from people across the globe and this is just what I have found. The music industry as we have it now will be so much better, if we could get a lot of our unsigned artists signed and on the radio. Maybe then radio stations will not have to repeat the same songs every hour on the hour
Kelly Erez is the beautiful, soulful, UK, needs to be signed already, R&B/Soul singer and songwriter that has me so hopeful for the music and for the genre. It took me all of one minute to agree to do this review when the boss sent it my way. If you know me well enough, you will know that’s mighty impressive as it usually takes me much longer to be convinced that an artist is worth reviewing. I am in love with this young lady’s voice and the soulfulness it carries. My first thought when I heard her was “Janet Jackson” (not Dance/Pop star Janet but R&B singer Janet), and its no stretch if you know Janet Jackson’s work well - think Janet Jackson's “Anytime, Anyplace”. Its that nasal thing, where you know that the person is singing from the depth of their belly. It immediately grabs your attention, you want more, it has you repeating the song. But see me rattling on, three paragraphs in and still no song. My bad ladies and gentlemen - the good news is that you get to hear Kelly’s entire EP right here!
Kelly Erez will be playing her second London headline gig of 2011 on September 22 at Hoxton Hall Theatre and I would implore you to get your tickets NOW and go see this amazing talent LIVE!
