NAJE San Francisco soul siren Naje (Na-jay) has confirmed the April 22 release of her upcoming album New Day, and will be performing at the Boom Boom Room. Called a modern-day Sharon Jones meets Amy Winehouse that promises to be THE new sound of 2016! One listen to Naje’s powerful, soul-shattering voice fused with an early 60s Motown-era pop-soul, funk and R&B sound and you know you’ve got the real deal. New Day was co-written and co-produced by Naje and composer/arranger/bassist Sascha Jacobsen after she raised the money through her loyal fans on Kickstarter to produce the album. The album was recorded in the studio while the songstress was pregnant, and explores the many colors of love, loss, endings and new beginnings, and documents many events that define Naje, especially the birth of her daughter and becoming a mother. New Day spotlights Naje’s soul-drenched, sensual voice that elegantly floats over Jacobsen’s masterful, evocative arrangements. The album was recorded by engineer Scott Bergstrom at Oakland’s 25th Street Studios and features an all-star cast of Bay area musicians with Naje. The Supervixens on vocals, Sascha Jacobsen (Rita Moreno, Hugh Jackman, Mandy Patinkin, Patti LuPone) on bass, Mike Blankenship (Michael Franti, Sheila E) on keys and hammond B3, Colin Douglas (Eddie Palmieri, Wayne Wallace) on drums and percussion, Dave McNab (Bob Weir) on guitar, Guillermo Garcia (Trio Garufa) on nylon string guitar, and the Musical Art Quintet. The title track “New Day” has a fun, uptempo, ska rhythm and feel infused with Naje’s retro-soul sound, while “I Can’t Stopcaptures the essence of soul-funk as it was at its height in the mid-60s to mid-70s.Tracks like “We Can’t Find The Love” and “She Won’t Love You” take you back with Naje’s mellow, soulful vocals soaring over an early 60’s Motown-era, pop-soul sound. “Evermore” is a tribute to Naje’s daughter and a top-notch soulful anthem that gives a glimpse into the chanteuses’ poetic songwriting style. Naje’s 11-track New Day LP will be available on iTunes on Friday April 22, and she’ll be performing at San Francisco’s Boom Boom Room on Saturday April 23 for her album release party. JELLY BREAD Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a powerhouse quintet with a high-energy calling card that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing. Here, There & Everywhere, Jelly Bread’s upcoming album is due to be released this fall. The album was mixed by renowned engineer/producer Justin Phelps (Cake, Galactic, Fruition, The Mars Volta, The Neville Brothers, and Dead Kennedys among many others). Jelly Bread has performed direct support for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Moe, Rusted Root, JJ Grey, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Allen Stone Band, Orgone, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Carolyn Wonderland, and The California Honeydrops. The band has also appeared at premiere festivals including the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, High Sierra, Joshua Tree, Strawberry, and Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza. On a recent tour through the in the upper reaches of the Northwest states, Jelly Bread had a fortuitous encounter with American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks. Taylor decided to sit in with Jelly Bread that evening for a couple songs on vocals and harmonica. Footage of the collaboration can be viewed on the Video page. Jelly Bread is co-fronted by powerhouse singer/gospel drummer, Cliff Porter, and southern-fried singer/guitarist, Dave Berry. They are backed by Jeremy Hunt on bass, Sean Lehe (formerly of Isabella and Poor Man’s Whiskey) on lead guitar, and Eric Matlock on keyboards and talk box.
