The evening promises to be an electrifying night as Maysa headlines this phenomenal line up and graces the elegant stage at The Music Center At Strathmore with her classically trained, jazz infused style of soulful vocals.

As a special guest Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/producer Gary Taylor will join Maysa on November 30th. Taylor is most known for speaking to the hearts of women and men regarding love, romance and the almighty relationship thru his thoughtful, intelligent and impassioned soul music.

To round out the line up Fertile Ground, another Maryland favorite, will also join Maysa as special guests for the evening. Fertile Ground is often classified as a soul/jazz band but they spill out of any genre as a cross-cultural fusion of all things spiritual and funk-ridden.

“Light My Fire” included on Japanese CD Compilation

Shinzone, a well-known Japanese designer label has several boutiques which are very popular in Japan. Recently, Shinzone collaborated with Columbia Music Entertainment in the release of a CD compilation to sell in their stores. The idea was to feature some of Columbia’s artists in the stores, thus helping to bring increased exposure to each artists’ individual CDs on the Columbia label.

The CD was released this past June. My recording of Light My Fire was chosen as one of the tracks. Other artists featured on the compilation are: Zonke, Culture Clan and Inger Marie.

Upcoming Shows

Soulful Sound Music is an independent company formed and operated by yours truly, Mala Waldron. We’re on a shoestring budget at the moment and making the most of word-of-mouth marketing. This means the more you spread the word about the new music, our performances and this newsletter, the more publicity gets generated, hopefully resulting in CD sales. At least that’s how it works theoretically folks.

Unified Tribe’s second single release “Happy Go Lucky” to air on The Bold and The Beautiful

Las Vegas, Nevada November 15, 2007 – Unified Tribe’s Funktional Family CD continues to capture listeners all over the globe. The Bold and the Beautiful will air their second single, Happy Go Lucky on Friday, November 16, 2007. Happy Go Lucky is the follow-up to their chart topping single Back n’ Forth. Both jocks and listeners are digging the upbeat, mood transforming sounds of the track.

FUNKtional Family, the third release from mega-band Unified Tribe is making noise in both radio and retail. The first single “Back and Forth,” broke onto the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts at number 77 and entered the Sound Scan US top selling singles charts at number 17. On the heels of the single, FUNKtional Family has followed with a break onto Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, and is now at iTunes. Both jocks and listeners are jumping on the undeniably sultry “Back And Forth” and its illustrious b-side “Don’t Wanna Be.” At radio, early believers included Kiss 106.9 FM (Alexandria, LA), Hot 107.7 (Birmingham, AL), and The Beat 92.7 (Jacksonville, FL).

More than 350 retail outlets have picked up the album FUNKtional Family, with coverage growing weekly. Retail support includes in-store play, listening booths, and prominent placement. “Every member of this group is talented to the point of perfection. The vocals & instruments were so tight and yet smooth, my attention was captured throughout the CD,” states Selekto Steve of Select-O-Hits Distribution.

Becoming one of UK’s mega soul bands Unified Tribe’s FUNKtional Family has made a major stir abroad. The album is receiving airplay on BBC Radio1 and that station’s Trevor Nelson says it all with, “This album is mental!” The Album has hit number one on the three largest independent charts in the UK – the Blues & Soul Hiplist, Street Soul Chart, and Solar Radio Sweet Rhythms Chart – the only record of 2006, of any genre, to top all three charts. Blues & Soul Magazine says it is “arguably the hottest soul/R&B album around, with heavy airplay from the UK’s leading soul DJs. A must for lovers of the soulful groove.” Additionally, FUNKtional Family has outsold all other import soul releases of the season.

FUNKtional Family is Unified Tribe’s most soulful album to date. From smooth mid tempos that deal with the trials of relationships, to upbeat mood transforming cuts like “Happy Go Lucky”; the album takes you on a rich emotional journey.

Putting the funk in “FUNKtional” is what Unified Tribe does best. Heavy hitting bass and brass driven tracks like “That Beat” and “Get the Funk” clearly pay tribute to the Tribe’s funk ancestry. With its current momentum, FUNKtional Family is sure to be Unified Tribe’s biggest release yet, as it helps to usher in the return of real music to radio and mainstream venues…the new old school.

About Unified Tribe
Unified Tribe is a classy, Funk/ R&B band with New York and L.A. roots. The band is a throwback, in both size and sound, to the days of Earth, Wind & Fire and Sly & The Family Stone.

The Tribe is anything but industry-formulated, and it’s their true musicality that first hooks fans. With a core that’s been together for over twenty years, their strong relationships form the perfect foundation for the potent sound in their music. Newcomers and industry veterans show an appreciation for what they have to offer. “Unified Tribe is the badest band on the planet. If history repeats itself, then Unified Tribe is the next Earth, Wind and Fire,” states R&B group The Whispers. Howard Hewett, formerly with Shalamar, adds to that sentiment. “I went to their studio and left with my mouth wide open…These cats are bad!”

Their production company, Magic Muzik Productions, Inc., comprised entirely of band members, has produced and worked with such R&B and jazz veterans as Earth, Wind & Fire, The Whispers, The Manhattans, Phil Perry, The Rippingtons, George Duke, and Nia Peeples.

At home, both in the studio and on stage, the Tribe’s originality comes across in any setting. Fans and industry aficionados alike often comment on the live show far surpassing any expectations. Unified Tribe, a micro-cosm of what the world could be.
