“Crazy Glue” by Naia Kete

Last month I featured Naia Kete, letting you know the former NBC’s “The Voice” contestant had an album in the works. On June 3rd, 2013 that album, Fire Breather, was celebrated at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, in preparation for its June 11 official release. This is Kete’s third EP to date.

Fire Breather features five perfectly sweet and savory tracks, leading with the single “Crazy Glue.” The video for the single features a cameo by Kete’s friend Steven R. McQueen from The CW’s hit show, The Vampire Diaries. Kete collaborated with music greats Linda Perry, Colbie Caillat, Mikal Blue and The Futuristics by melding pop, soul, reggae and R&B.

“Midnight” by Joshua Worden

Solo artist and producer based in Atlanta, GA, Joshua Worden, creates an original blend of R&B, jazz and indie pop with electronic production. His down-tempo fusion is fresh and atypical. Worden is inspired by artists such as Frank Ocean, Raphael Saadiq and James Blake. His music and lyrics, though accessible, veer heavily towards introspective territory. Worden is a trained jazz guitarist and, as a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, he writes, arranges and produces all of his own material.

Worden released his debut EP, The Withered Tree in July of 2012. Earlier this month, his first full-length album, Always This, was released and can be streamed from his Bandcamp profile.

Worden’s live band consists of himself (vocals, keys, guitar, synth, samples) and Will Montgomery (drums, vocals, samples).
