Angie Stone (born Angela Laverne Brown on December 18) is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, record producer, and occasional actress. She has been nominated for three Grammy Awards. She has been most successful on the R&B charts, with four Top 10 albums, including a number one album, and ten singles, including a Top 10. She has sold over 1.4 millions albums in the U.S. and over 5 millions albums worldwide.
In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone releases her 2012 album on Saguaro Road Rhythm. On her 6th studio project Angie explores all aspects of being a Rich Girl. The 15-tracks have skintight grooves, funky vibes and a beautiful mélange of sounds. It’s a measure of an artist who has mastered her own identity and left nothing to chance. With Rich Girl, the neo-soul songwriter has done just that, delivering a powerfully intimate collection of songs that wrap themselves around you like a warm embrace full of love and compassion, strength and wit.
Andwele Gardner (born February 14),better known by his stage name Dwele is a soul singer, songwriter and record producer from Detroit, Michigan. Gardner was raised on the west side of Detroit in a musical family. He played piano from the age of six, later taking up trumpet, bass and guitar. He was deeply affected by the fatal shooting of his father outside his home when he was age ten, later stating “I learned to put my emotions into music; it was my therapy.” He cites Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Roy Ayers, Miles Davis, and Freddie Hubbard as favorite artists, and took inspiration from hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, becoming an MC, and working with Slum Village.
Greater Than One, is the fifth studio album from Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Dwele. Notable features on Greater Than One are provided by Monica Blair, LaLa Hathaway, Black Milk and J Tait. Dwele, who wrote every track on the album, plays keyboard, horns and drums on a majority of the songs.
Faith Renée Evans (born June 10) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, occasional actress and author. Born in Florida and raised in New Jersey, Evans relocated to Los Angeles during 1993 for a career in the music business. After working as a backing vocalist for Al B. Sure and Christopher Williams, she became the first female artist to be contracted with Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Entertainment recording company during 1994, for which she collaborated with several label mates such as Mary J. Blige and Carl Thomas and released three platinum-certified studio albums between the years 1995 and 2001, including Faith, Keep the Faith, and Faithfully.
Faith Evans lives up to the title of her latest album, R&B Divas. The compilation project, released today, features the songstress’ vibrant vocals on a handful of tracks. R&B Divas is the companion LP to TV One’s reality show of the same name. Many of the cast are present on the effort, including Syleena Johnson, KeKe Wyatt and Monifah. With 12 songs in total — the Claude Kelly-penned “Tears of Joy” among them — the album brings some old school flavor to the modern day R&B landscape.
