[UPDATE] Upcoming Event: Sultry Sounds 1/13 in Washington DC

sultry sounds

The first Sultry Sounds of the New Year is the All Stars Edition which will be held on January 13th in D.C. DMV artists like Kenny Sharp, Davonne D’Neil, Finao Love, and Marquita Cheron will be performing for their fans and will bring the music that you feel in your soul. This is that young soul music, the new generation of that soul music that is missing a lot in today’s music.

kenny sharp Kenny Sharp – Kenny Sharp has a unique style of in his song ‘Brown Liquor Music’ by storytelling and keeping it simple with just a guitar playing in the background so you can really focus on his lyrics rather than the beat of the song. He has a country feel to his music but its more up-tempo than your normal country song that you will hear on the radio. It adds his twists to it so even if you don’t like country music, you would still enjoy it. In his track ‘Fine As Wine’, he changed up the music and flow than what he had in his Brown Liquor. He uses more musical instruments (i.e. drums and keyboard) and it has a flow like the open mic and poetry slams you would attend. Listening to it, I got the feeling that I was listening to a Kendrick Lamar track. ‘Will I Love You’ has a 90s feel to it. The music he decided to use on this track is a feel good sound. If you love music that makes you want to get up and dance or just lay back and relax, this is that song. As an artist, Kenny Sharp is able to change up his sound and keep you interested at each change and have you thinking he can really do it all. Kenny is an artist that you need to look out for. To listen to his tracks, you can go to his page on Sound Cloud.

davonne d'neil Davonne D’Neil – Davonne D’Neil is a gifted artist with a true God given talent. Her song ‘Deeper’ draws you in when you hear the first of the beat and her voice comes in. This track just works just because of the flow it has. The music, the beat, her lyrics, her voice, everything, just absolutely everything goes together and you are given this awesome sound where you will just want to forget all of your problems. ‘Sugha Pie’ shows the vocals of D’Neil. She really put her heart and soul into this track. You can tell by the lyrics that whoever her “sugah pie” is, he has really put a spell on her. ‘Careless Love’ starts with the 1940s maybe 1950s piece from a song and eventually, you hear D’Neil’s voice. She keeps the flow of the 40s or 50s to give you that mix of swing and jazz music that makes you snap your fingers and bob your head to the beat and close your eyes to hear the lyrics. To listen to her tracks, you can go to her page on Sound Cloud.

finao loveFinao Love – If you are into the somewhat newer R&B genre, you will love Finao Love. When I first heard Love’s song ‘Down’, I immediately started enjoying it. His lyrics aren’t too provocative to where you wouldn’t enjoy it. It has bearable and sensational lyrics with a nice rhythm of music that soothes you. ‘My Girl Be Trippin’ has the fast paced musical beat that brings the track to life. Love speaks about his girl being jealous whenever he would leave their home together. She would think that he was out with other girls or just doing things he shouldn’t be doing. He tells her she needs to learn how to love and trust. He is willing to work on their relationship and grow with her. Finao Love has a track that is called ‘She Likes It’. This particular song has this dance type vibe to it when it first comes on and it suddenly drops to a nice and study beat. The beat picks back up and you will hear DMV Ferris’s come in with his rap.

marquita cheron Marquita Cheron – Marquita Cheron has a track called ‘Circus’. This song is her saying that her she is not a fool or some side show that is for a guy’s entertainment. She continues to say that she is so much more than just a “circus show” and deserve so much better than what this particular person is making her feel. This song is an anthem for the women who are being mistreated by their supposed to be loves of their lives in my personal opinion. She is telling them that you have to know your own self-worth and you have to have the courage to leave and remove someone or people who doesn’t respect what you are worth. ‘Falling Deeper’ is her being in love song with someone very special in her life. She catches herself falling deeper and deeper in love with the way they smell, their voice, and everything else about them. It is a song that will make you feel like a teenager seeing your crush and you get the butterflies in your stomach. ‘Rain Quiet Storms’ is basically ‘Rain’ by SWV. If you love SWV then you would definitely love Cheron’s track. You have the rainfall sound effects with the soft music and the Cheron’s voice coming in singing the lyrics of SWV but you will eventually hear the creative lyrics of hers that flows with the song.

Overall, the artists of the DMV are amazingly talented and have their own unique way of showcasing who they are and how they feel.

Upcoming Event: 12/17 – Hip-Hop 101 at Amityville Music Hall in New York


2015 has been a productive year for SEYI to say the least, and he is ready to set up 2016 as another one as he continues to build a local buzz for himself. In the past few months, SEYI has released his first music video for his dreamer friendly song “Wanna Be”, had his first headline gig at Revolution in Amityville, and was even featured on Farmingdale State College’s homepage and the SUNY blog which is connected to all 64 state universities in New York.
Now SEYI is adding another mark to his 2015 checklist, not only by performing at Amityville Music Hall for the first time, but also for being the headliner for the night’s festivities. The show also features local artist such as Fonz P, Poetik, Nutty Nilz, Jucaro, and Tom Adams. He will be doing his usual crowd favorites along with unheard material from his anticipated project N>I>B. Local talented and rising DJ Christina will be spinning the SEYI’s set along with a set of her own.

With the holiday spirt among us, SEYI is in the generous mood and is giving the first 25 buyers of physical tickets an exclusive song , shout out on his snapchat(ojmamba) and the cover artwork to N>I>B. Really a great deal for $10 bucks.

December 17th is when this all goes down. Hit up either SEYI or DJ Christina on twitter to get a ticket for what WILL BE a dope NY hip-hop show.

Art showcase in honor of life

To be thankful about life should be everyday.
As you know, “Thanksgiving” is the night before this event, the American holiday that once had families together for grace and appreciation of everything they have in life.

They call this modrern day zombie apocalypse phemonenon “Black Friday”, because so many people go crazy and shop to the point that it causes traffic accidents, social altercations, and even violence. How graceful.
“Consumerism has a religious day called Black Friday.”

The Foul Hundreds presents BLACK FRIDAY as a night honoring
ART & ARTISTS, in a place with a family atmosphere.

No gimmicks, no zombies, no violence…
just artists making an art statement.

We invite you to the dark side.
