Tweet Her undeniable talent, incredible voice, and striking beauty are the reasons she stands out from the rest and the reasons why she’s had staying power in the fickle, precarious music industry. Since emerging on the scene, songstress and songwriter Tweet, born Charlene Keys, has been a favorite for R&B music lovers. Now, after a six-year hiatus, she is back with her third studio album Charlene, a testament to her professional, personal, and emotional evolution. It’s a soulful, beautifully candid album that showcases Tweet’s dynamic vocals, and her artistic writing ability.

Between 2002 and 2005, Tweet cranked out hit after hit, from her provocative premiere single “Oops (Oh My),” the catchy “Call Me” (which went on to be an anthem for Verizon ads) and the hypnotic “Smoking Cigarettes,” from her debut album Southern Hummingbird, to the sultry “Turn Da Lights Off,” featuring Missy Elliott from her sophomore album, It’s Me Again. Her vocals were also featured on several tracks for Missy, Ja Rule, Timbaland, and Bubba Sparxxx. “I was surprised at how quick I blew up,” remembers

In 2011, she then signed with DuBose Music Group, and quietly released the five-track EP Simply Tweet in 2013. But it was after running into eOne Music’s Phil Thornton in 2014, that the second-act of her career was about to begin. As an artist, I’ve totally matured vocally,” says Tweet. “I’m comfortable with myself and I don’t care what anyone thinks anymore. I still write about what’s going on my life, but I will never compromise my creative freedom like I did on It’s Me Again.” With its throwback feel to it, Charlene is a creative, confident, and superbly produced album sprinkled with what influenced Tweet growing up. “With the state of music these days, I found myself falling out of love with it. So I had to go back to the basics, back to when and where I first fell in love with it,” says Tweet. “I had to go back to what influenced me to make music in the first place. That’s what you will hear on Charlene—gospel, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin-inspired soul.”

Samoht An empathic emcee with a soul of a rebel. Samoht (Sah-Moh) breathes soul into hip-hop. A child of the church, Samoht, born Thomas Parker, learned early on that music would be his guide on his spiritual journey. His unparalleled lyricism later brought him from North Carolina to Brooklyn seven years ago, inspiring his first releases "Nature" in 2009 and "New Moon" in 2013 under Thomas Parker. Since then, he has adopted the moniker, Samoht, and is prepping the release of his third project, MxxnWave, in 2018. It's already spurred the single "39 Weeks".

In the midst of sonic pollution that plagues millennials, Samoht is a breath of fresh air, honoring traditional R&B. But it's his alternative approach that will keep audiences craving his ear candy.

Dante Hall Think about it: how often do you discover a warm throwback who’s also an exciting new soul? A long-established vocalist catching fire as an emerging new artist? A humble singer equally comfortable in small venues and on big stages, working with the likes of R. Kelly, Bebe and Cece Winans, Donald Lawrence, Yolanda Adams, Michael McDonald and Dave Hollister?

Your answer to those multiple questions — a singular talent: Dante Hall. Dante is an independent artist who’s well regarded among his musical peers yet among the freshest discoveries for a widening list of fans. When you hear Dante, you don’t just hear lyrics or sounds but audible paintings of love, loss and longings. Passion informs every note. It just feels right – and good.
