An interesting take on the song that broke Outkast into the mainstream many a moon ago. Nia Ekanem who I have had the pleasure of working with over the last month or so puts his soft crisp vocal sounds all over it and even gets the Vocals and Verses crowd to sing along.

Some more footage from Hayley Cassidy’s live performance at Vocals & Verses a few weeks ago. Here she takes on Sam Smith’s massive “Not the only one”. Here she shows off her lower range, an epic key change and then that wonderful ability she has to ad-lib at the end of the song for ages without you wanting her to stop. Shouts to the keys man who throws some nice sprinklings of gospel keys into the pop song and accompanying Hayley perfectly. Awesome performance as always.
Live footage from Hayley’s recent performance at Vocals & Verses. Backed by the full band the Music is Remedy favourite does what she does best sounding simply divine. The ad-libbing at the end is awesome and the band compliment her nicely never taking the spotlight away from her. Just superb as always.

Highlights form Vocals and Verses 3rd anniversary last month. In a fresh move to celebrate 3 successful years of events they held two nights in a week one focusing on Vocals/music the other on Verses/spokenword. Both nights were massive successes and i’ve chosen to post Verses night. Snippets of the Brilliant Anthony Anaxagorou, Tinyman and Jolade to name a few. Lovely to see the artists short comments on camera after their performance on the night.
As is mentioned in the video congrats to Ben and the Team on a great night and many more to come no doubt. Peep highlights of the Vocals night here.

The guys @ Soul Features recently caught up with rising soul star Kaleem Taylor when he performed at Vocals and Verses @ Proud. He talks a little bit about himself how he started and what the futures and there’s some footage of the performance. This guy does have a really nice tone to his vocal perhaps a little reminiscent of Omar. Definitely one to watch out for.
