Harlem The Artist



Harlem the Artist
Harlem the Artist started his musical journey at the young age of 13 with the support of his father.  Over time he's morphed into an impeccable singer and songwriter.  Harlem has independently released three underground solo CD's including; "I'm A Singer", "The Life" and "Situations" which share the sound of R&B mixed with Hip Hop and urban influences.  Harlem's latest single called "Timeless" further shows his vocal and songwriting maturity.  He literally does not rest until he's captured innovation by means of beautiful lyrics and melodies.
Harlem has opened for Tank, Joe, Jaged Edge, Donnell Jones and a host of other signed and unsigned artist.  Harlem has received national exposure after winning and appearing on BET's 106 and Park "Wild-Out_Wednesdays".  Harlem was also recognized as the "Best Male R&B Artist" during the 5th annual Underground Music Awards (UMA) held at BB Kings in New York City.  In addition, he was the 1st artist featured in VIBE magazine's Unsigned Artist Series and named "R&B Artist of the Year".
Harlem the Artist; a man so passionate about music that his very purpose for living resolves around it.  His committment to his music not only demonstrates who he is as an artist, but who he is as a man.  Despite working tirelessly and breaking many nights in recording studios, he still makes the time to be a responsible brother to his siblings, a loving son to his parents and a helping hand to his friends. 
Harlem is the epitome of a truly great musician in the making.  When asked why he makes music, his response is "I don't really feel I have a choice in making music, it's in my DNA...something I couldn't shake if I wanted to.  i just hope people can relate and appreciate my music".


When Harlem was interviewed by David Fromayan of VIBE the writer had this to say: "Harlem views music today as an ever evolving melting pot of genres.  He meshs together a culmination of genres like Pop, R&B, Rap and Jazz music to innovatively broaden his range in music. By doing this it enables him to stay relevant, connected to fans and not be confined to the limits of R&B.  "I want someone whose never seen me perform live to be able to connect with my music, "Harlem says.
Harlems smooths lyrics & melody grasp an audience and sets him apart from the rest.  Harlem's new single entitled "Timeless" has been describe by his Youtube and Facebook fans in the following ways:  "soulful and heartfelt",  "Real R&B", "Nice to see real music back at it", "Good music, love this song" and finally "not cookie cutter type and you can hear the influence of other types of music in it".
The new single "Timeless" could be best describe as a blend of two classic genres of music R&B and Hip Hop with the blend of smooth "Alternative" vocal tones which maintains a great balance sonically.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
