Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics

"It's About Time," the full-length debut album from Atlanta's Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, has quickly made waves around the globe since its recent September 2012 release. Billboard has recently ranked the album in the top 30 on the Heatseeker charts, a chart devoted to emerging artists. In the US, the lead off single "My Dear" was featured as iTunes' "single of the week", sparking a digital soul-grab of 200,000 single downloads, and 1200 full album download sales, landing the album at #4 on the iTunes R&B charts. The same week, Jim Farber of The New York Daily News named the album in his much sought-after top ten. In addition, Google Play has offered"My Dear" as a free track for the month of October for all smartphone users.

In Christmas week December 2012, the single "Heartlite" was featured as the Starbucks "Pick of the Week" which garnered over 250,000 downloads and presence in all Starbucks location wi-fi pages nationwide. Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics roots are embedded in the rich sound and history of Georgia soul, beginning with the early 50's and 60's R&B that became so well known around the world. Having performed countless gigs since 2005, and with a slew of 45rpm singles already under their belts, the band has already contributed heavily to the steadily increasing awareness of genuine rhythm and blues music that exists today.

Hazard To Ya Booty

Hailing from St. Louis, MO Hazard To Ya Booty fuses elements of rock, soul, hip-hop, jazz and blues to make a head bobbing funk sound that's guaranteed to get people moving and sweating. If hazard could inject any more energy into their live shows they would cause an audio supernova and be sucked into a funky black hole. Starting out in 2000 at Truman State University in MO and making a huge splash on the local college scene, Hazard has gone through various line up changes since but all the while stayed true to its core principal: Getting that booty moving.
