Studio Campfire Stories, an original concert series where songs from Zo!’s ManMade and Carmen Rodgers’ Stargazer albums come alive in an intimate setting via colorful stories behind all of the music played as told by the artists themselves.
Hyde Park’s own Kwest_on (Freedom Party, We Love Soul) presents two of the most exciting artists in contemporary R&B music. Zo!, known for his work with The Foreign Exchange, is joined by the lovely Carmen Rodgers for a night of progressive neo-soul and musical magic.
So, Saturday night during the performance of “We Are On The Move”… Phonte and I decided to pay a bit of impromptu tribute to one of the greatest live routines of all-time. Shouts to @rtst on IG for capturing this “acting uppedness” on stage…
2012 has been another helluva year. I got to do some traveling and play shows in LA, NYC, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, St. Louis, Bethesda, MD, Greensboro, NC, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Columbia MD, Boston, Virginia Beach, Raleigh, Vienna, VA, Memphis, Indianapolis, San Francisco, and Phoenix …..and Durham, NC for this coming New Year’s Eve. I completed my first year as a full-time musician after the school I taught music at closed last year – I was then able to continue teaching by conducting individual piano lessons and workshop to groups of young ones. I began endorsing Moog Music, received another standing ovation during a performance back home in Detroit, and got the bulk of the recording finished for my newest albumManMade. Sy Smith and I did some touring this year playing big solo shows at DC’s Blues Alley and NYC’s Blue Note and received big performance props from Sheila E while I was back on the road with The Foreign Exchange who wrapped up performances for an album we have been touring for two years, Authenticity. I hit my ten-year anniversary of releasing music as well. Outside of all that, it was a fairly quiet twelve months……….
…Looking forward to 2013. Enjoy the photos!!
