If you are in the DC area this weekend, check out Emily King (I told yall to not sleep on the East Side Story cd) with Franklin Bridge> at the Black Cat Sat. night. I told you before MN8 puts it down with live shows in the DC area.
On The-Verge.Com is a music information website and media outlet that was created and developed to showcase and expose the timeless soul music and talent that most often goes unheard due to insufficient exposure, support and promotion. There are numerous recording artists and musicians (signed and unsigned) that continue to make positive music contributions but because of the “commercial powers that be” lesser known artists are not given the same opportunities to be heard and exposed.
One artist Choklate (soul singer that has been killing Seattle to NYC and every spot in between), is a top artist on the soul music scene!
If you are in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach area Feb. 15th check out Soul Obsession: The Movement @ The Boot, in Norfolk, VA.

Also if you’re in NC on Feb. 2nd, you can check out UK Soul Legend Omar, with YaZarah and Fertile Ground at The Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh.
I was checking the PPP’s website during the radio show last week, and as I anticipate the new Triple P album coming out this April, I came across a note to pick up Coultrain “The Adventures of Seymour Liberty” album. Without asking any questions, I bought the album, and will be playing many cuts next week on the show. Hottness!!!!! Go get it!!!!
