First Listen: Antoine Dunn is "Yours" on great new single
(February 15, 2020) Smooth and soulful are words that describe Cleveland native Antoine Dunn. Dunn's sound channels a timeless style, embodied by Donnie Hathaway, Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles—all sources of inspiration for his music. Mixing classic elements with more contemporary sounds, and even a touch of Gospel, he's consistently delivered great music that should appeal to SoulTrackers.

First Look Video: Tatiana Scott finds clarity on "I Don't Choose You"
(February 14, 2020) You hear a lot of influences in the “IDCU (I Don’t Choose You),” the latest singer by Bridgeport, CT. born and New York City trained vocalist Tatiana Scott. There’s some folk, pop, soul, gospel and a bit of hip hop with her melodic flow near the song’s end.
Scott says the inability for anybody to pin a specific genre on her is intentional. “I just want my music to speak to the hearts of those who listen to it, I want them to be ok with their vulnerability no matter what they may be feeling at the time,” Scott says.
First Listen: The Force MDs return to "Make U Happy"
(February 14, 2020) Wow, it is tough to think about soul music in the 80s and 90s without spending some time on the Force MDs. They helped define the era with their brand of classic-soul-meets-hip-hop, and enjoyed a string of big hits that we still love listening to today.
