Photo PreviewCherine Anderson is a Reggae artist originally from Kingston, Jamaica.  The reason I chose to feature her is because although I have Caribbean blood running through my veins and I love my island and culture, I am not the biggest Reggae fan in the world.  There are a few artists or songs that an grab my attention, and Cherine is one of them.  When I heard her song "Rebel", I was instantly hooked.  I can see this track becoming my new get-ready-for-the-club anthem.  It is very mellow yet you can still get hyped to it.  How many tracks do you know can do that??  She also gets massive respect from me because before she even put an album out, she collaborated on OFFICIAL remixes with industry legends such as Madonna, and get this... PAUL MCCARTNEY!!!! Please check her out ASAP. This girl needs to blow up in the states NOW!  Check her out at http://www.reverbnation.com/cherineanderson.   Check her video below for "Redemption Songs":

Jarryd Fillmore

Jarryd Fillmore is one of my new favorites.  He is an acoustic/ blues/ folk singer from Ontario, Canada.  He has a very pure voice that doesn't need  heavy background music, vocals and production.  His guitar is the perfect match for his soothing voice.

On tracks like "Long Days and Longer Nights", the passion is felt from beginning to end.  He reminds me of an early John Mayer.  I could definitely see him covering some Ray Charles or Donny Hathaway.  Please check him out on his youtube channel: www.youtube.com/jarrydfillmoremusic.  Also, check the video below of him performing "Long Days Longer Nights".  Enjoy!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA7/27 is a Hip Hop/ R&B duo representing Nashville, NC.  They fuse a healthy blend of Neo Soul and real Hip Hop, which is such a rarity these days. 

Young Nell (rapper), lists some of his influences as Big L, Cassidy and Nas.  These influences can be heard throughout his verses.  He's what the game has been missing for a while.  He gets much respect from me for that.  As for Kiarya B. (singer), she has an eclectic voice, that is able to adapt to any melody.  She lists her influences as Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill and SWV, all very powerful voices.

Their current single "Disconnect", a track off of their promo LP entitled "Road to Success", was played on the Independent Spotlight on local radio station Foxy 99 and voted #1 requested song.
