Annicia Banks – Up Front CD
ANNICIA BANKS is a reggae singer-songwriter from Kingston, Jamaica. She has toured the Caribbean, United States, Asia, Africa, and Europe, using the dulcet tones of her voice to provide background support for internationally acclaimed reggae artists Judy Mowatt (of I-Threes fame), Bunny Wailer (original member of The Wailers), Sister Carol, and the legendary “Crown Prince of Reggae” Dennis Emmanuel Brown. ANNICIA BANKS will finally seize the spotlight with the release of her debut solo UP FRONT CD in stores on March 5, 2021. UP FRONT will introduce her own original songs, including a collaboration with the late and legendary Bob Andy, and as the first single a cover of the Dennis Brown hit “Love Has Found Its Way” featuring original saxophonist Dean Fraser will release online February 5, 2021.
Fely Tchaco – YITA (Deep Water) CD
FELY TCHACO might be one of the Bay Area’s best-kept musical secrets, but not for much longer. Her highly anticipated new album YITA (DEEP WATER), set for release on International Women’s Day 2021, marks the fifth full-length album from FELY TCHACO on which she explores themes of migration, human trafficking, and calls for social justice and the end of police brutality against civilians. The title track “Yita” was inspired by her 2016 humanitarian trip to bear witness to Syrian refugee camps in Greece, and the album is dedicated to African and Middle Eastern migrants who lost their lives crossing the Mediterranean Sea. YITA (DEEP WATER) is a positive, inclusive celebration of cultural diversity and black joy, where FELY TCHACO offers an uplifting vision of immigrant triumph and African excellence.
Feverseed – Let Yourself Down CD
FEVERSEED is a New York rock quartet founded by singer/lyricist George Panagakos and bass player Chris Crosby. With their new LET YOURSELF DOWN EP, the band delivers a powerful and soulful debut that is sure to please fans of guitar-driven rock the world over. LET YOURSELF DOWN features three remarkable songs, each with its own personality. The title track is an anthem of loss and redemption, “Beat Me” is a fast and sexy powerhouse and “Imprint” is an intimate epic of love and longing. Chris and George, both multi-instrumentalists, have been writing and recording together for years. They’ve explored many musical genres, but the common threads of their memorable and melodic compositions and George’s versatile, unique and powerful voice are always present. In 2019 they decided to quench their thirst for rock and FEVERSEED was born. To complete the band’s lineup, they were joined by lead guitarist Wibbus and drummer Drew Bertrand shortly before recording commenced.
