Hey Friends in the LA Area! Tomorrow, May 29, my very close friend, LA soul songstress Jimetta Rose is performing live Downstairs at Fifty Seven located in Downtown Los Angeles. She will also be presenting art pieces and performing poetry, and there will be surprise guests joining her on stage. If you aren't in town, you can always support by spreading the word! Details below, I truly hope to see you there!
Los Angeles based producer Anthony Valadez brings us his latest release, In Search Of… a contemplative work encompassing pieces reflecting his growth and progress catalyzed by new relationships, encounters and culture; a continuance to the preceded album Just Visiting. The album includes several features with lauded musicians including Miles Bonny, Zack Seckoff, Kathrin deBoer, as well as a collaboration with the venerable Jimetta Rose on the love song “Stars Above”
Jimetta clemently bellows an ardent ballad amidst a milieu of soft riffs and mellow percussions gracefully crafted by Valadez. Her spectral harmonies compliment his relaxed yet satiated production. Adding further depth and engrossment to the track are Jimetta’s ad-libs so cleverly incorporated to capture the roller-coaster of emotions that so many of us experience in love. Her writing is deliberately uncomplicated allowing listeners to truly be enraptured by such an exquisite melodic experience.
Jimetta’s work with Anthony Valadez is only a glimpse into her diverse talents as a singer and songwriter. She also has upcoming projects with Carlos Nino, DJ House Shoes and Georgia Anne Muldrow. Expect much more from Jimetta Rose this year and onward.
This is My official release party. I wish i could send personal messages to everyone, but it would take so long. Still, I really hope to see all my friends and family out at this event. Free entry, and i'll have drink for the first ten people out.
