Eli “Paperboy” Reed

BIOGRAFÍA:

Eli “Paperboy” Reed is a survivor. He was one of the first of the new wave of singers and songwriters to embrace unabashedly soulful music and he has been tearing up stages all over the world with his heart-stopping falsetto screams for more than a decade with no plans to slow down. From humble musical beginnings growing up outside of Boston, at 18 Reed moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi and cut his teeth playing and singing in juke joints all over the Delta. From there he took the well-trod path to Chicago where he spent a year as minister of music the Southside church of Soul legend Mitty Collier. Soon after returning to Boston, he was bit by the songwriting bug and released his first full length, “Roll with You” in 2008. Reed’s combination of powerful soulful vocals coupled with his strong pop sensibility as a songwriter made people all over the world stand up and take notice. Soon there were calls coming in from everywhere; television shows in the UK, festivals in Australia, and a jaw-dropping schedule of national and international tour dates. Major record labels came calling, deals were signed and Reed’s star kept rising, now with the help of song placements in major movies, television shows and commercials. The albums “Come and Get it” (Capitol - 2010) and “Nights Like This” (Warner Brothers - 2014) went on to do more than $2.5 million in total licensing, while Reed and his crack band continued to wow audiences on five continents. In 2016, after some much-needed time off from the road, Reed returned to the studio to cut “My Way Home” (Yep Roc - 2016); an album that is at once back-to-basics and startlingly current. Starting in 2013 Reed began teaching at an after-school music education based in Harlem called for Gospel for Teens during his breaks from touring. The program worked with at-risk youth from around the New York City area and Reed specifically began teaching these young men about Gospel Quartet music, its history and harmony. Out of those classes emerged a new project that Reed dubbed The Harlem Gospel Travelers. He produced, arranged and played guitar on their debut album which came out on the revered soul label Colemine records in 2019 to rave reviews. Now The Harlem Gospel Travelers are at work on their second full-length and have begun conquering festival stages as well. Parenthood gave Reed a newfound wisdom and self-reflection. His daughter Stella was born in 2016 and son Oscar in 2019. With that in mind he returned to the south to record his 7th full-length “99 Cent Dreams” at the legendary Sam Phillips Recording studio in Memphis, TN. This time around he was joined by Soul legends The Masqueraders on background vocals. The title track was given an unexpected boost with a feature by hip-hop pioneer Big Daddy Kane! No Depression wrote: Reed never disappoints and on 99 Cent Dreams he takes his musical game to a new level, elevating us with it.” Now approaching the 15-year mark in his career and releasing his 8th album “Down Every Road”, Reed has improbably become an elder statesman of the genre, and he’s begun seeing new artists who are taking inspiration from his unique sound. A sound that, over everything else, prizes feeling, energy, and, yes, Soul.

Love Language

__wf_reserved_heredar
BIOGRAFÍA:

Being both the Indian and the Cowboy is a tall order, but it’s the only way Anishinaabe singer Tashiina Buswa can see as a way to navigate a world that’s infected to its roots with colonial ideals. ‘Indian Cowboy’ takes the old Hollywood trope of Cowboys vs. Indians and injects it with nuance. Growing up with a foot in two worlds (one where Indigenous identity is held sacred and one where colonialism works to tear that idea down), Buswa muses on the duality of organized religion/Indigeneity, and staying connected to your culture in a world designed to destroy it. “You want it? You got your Indian Cowboy” she sings in exasperation at the end of the track, defeated, yet with some secret, triumphant sense of beating the system at its own game. Love Language is the band that’s playing in the bar that all the high school kids are somehow allowed into in your favorite 90s teen movie. Within less than a year of their first show under an overpass in Montreal, they had taken their energetic, often chaotic live show across Canada, sharing stages with Dehd, Ombiigizi, Chad VanGaalen and Julie Doiron. They return with the release of ‘Indian Cowboy’ a song that reckons with a lifetime of navigating organized religion and an Indigenous culture that colonial ideals constantly attempts to erode.

BIOGRAFÍA:

Legacy can mean different things to different people. For some, legacy is simply about blood ties. For others, it’s about making positive decisions that will impact future generations. For Austrian-born Maria Burger, who performs as indie-pop singer/songwriter OSKA, legacy is about both of these things. It’s a theme that looms over her remarkable debut album, My world, My love, Paris. The youngest of eight, with four older siblings and three half siblings above her, Maria grew up in a large family where music was in every room of the house. Her mother filled their home with the sounds of guitar, Irish music and ballets. As she grew up, Maria learned to play guitar herself, racing home after school to write songs, drawing influence from all over the spectrum. Today, Maria has taken her rich musical upbringing to Vienna. As OSKA, Maria creates an inviting world of bright melodies, grooving rhythms, and poetic, storytelling lyrics. On her debut EP, Honeymoon Phase, audiences got a taste of Maria’s elegant songwriting, which touches on familiar themes like love, heartbreak, climate change, and family. The title of her debut album, My world, My love, Paris, is an anxious reminder that the planet’s future has never been more uncertain. Conceived near the start of the pandemic, “My World, My Love, Paris,” as the album’s title track, tells the story of a couple who board a boat as the world comes to an end. As they sail away, they ask each other, “Could we have made more of our lives?” It’s a spiritual cousin to a song by one of Maria’s major inspirations, Edith Piaf, who sang, “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien (“No, I do not regret anything”). Despite its various themes, My world, My love, Paris is ultimately a snapshot of a young woman attempting to make sense of getting older in an increasingly uncertain era. “My world, My love, Paris is about making sense out of that.”
