‘SkyBreak’ Documentary Trailer #1 – “…SkyBreak is coming, though”

We had some fun with this one, breaking down some of the Zo! & Tigallo Love The 80’s album  answering  the question…
“When is the 90’s (or 80’s part 2) album coming?”

NEW VIDEO: “California Love – A Triptych” starring Sy Smith, Carmen Rodgers & Zo!

Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 3.05.00 AM.png

In the spring of 2015, Zo!, Carmen Rodgers and Sy Smith came together as an underground soul power trio, playing live shows on the west coast for a stint they called the “California Love Tour”. Director Shawn Carter Peterson filmed the Los Angeles performance and created a beautiful long play video/short film, capturing the trio’s musical mastery and camaraderie in this presentation of three captivating singles from the show. Sy playfully flaunts her quick-paced scatting chops on “Personal Paradise”, Carmen drips with honey-coated cooing on “It’s Me”, and Zo! shows off his piano virtuosity with “Flight Of The Blackbyrd”. The acoustic set exhibits a beautiful simplicity of instrumentation; just piano (Zo!), upright bass (Maurice Ellis) and drums (Stacey Lamont Sydnor) which makes plenty of sonic room to experience the tunes stripped all the way down. And just like the human form, these tunes are even better naked.

With The Foreign Exchange on FOX 5 Vegas

I walked back into the Gibson Showroom at FOX 5 Vegas almost a year to the day that I performed on there solo and for my documentary. This time around, I was on keys for the crew… The Foreign Exchange performing “Right After Midnight” from their Love In Flying Colors album. Y’all enjoy this one… And shouts to Phonte for rockin’ the Zo! shirt…

“We Are On The Move” Debuts on Vh1 Soul!!

It feels pretty good to now have two videos from ManMade in rotation on VH1 Soul now (“Count To Five” being the first)… “We Are On The Move” is definitely my most popular video to date and I’m happy to see that it’s finally getting a bit of television shine… Click the picture to see the video.

“Count To Five” Makes Its Video Debut on VH1Soul

Count To Five VH1Soul

It’s always better when you get to watch it on TV. I’m just as hyped up as I was when I first saw “This Could Be The Night” on Vh1 Soul for the first time three years ago almost to the day (February 14, 2011)… Trust me, this never gets old. Shouts to everyone involved, particularly Phonte, Gwen Bunn, Kenneth Price, Darion Alexander, Chris Boerner, Nick Baglio, and Aimee Flint for pushing the video through the process.

It will be shown on Vh1 Soul’s Sub Soul program.

Zo! – “We Are On The Move” featuring Eric Roberson and Phonte (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

There are only two rules I have for watching this new video:
1. Leave your cool at the door…
2. HAVE SOME FUN.

The day before this video shoot, I was catching up with Eric Roberson in the car where we had the heat blasting as it was cold as shit outside (of course with today’s ‘Polar Vortex’, it probably seems like nothing now). Anyway, as we were talking… almost in mid-sentence Erro stops and said, “Hol’lup, we’re shooting (the video) outside tomorrow?” …To which I responded, “Yeah.” It was supposed to be 30-35 degrees (F) in the morning and top off at about 40 in the afternoon. We all met up at around 7:30a the next morning, threw a couple of dance moves together, looked at each other like, “It’s cold as hell, but we’re out here… Let’s have some damn fun.” And that is EXACTLY what happened…. Enjoy!!!
