PR: Ursula Rucker - New Album "She Said" Out Now


From Ryan Romana:

PR: Ursula Rucker - New Album "She Said" Out Now

Jan. 25th - San Diego - Kava Lounge (more info here)

Jan. 26th - Santa Monica - Zanzibar (more info here)

As a poet and performance artist, Ursula Rucker has enchanted critics and fans across the globe with her diverse repertoire, captivating vocals and accessible poetic verse.  On January 11th, she returns with a new album, She Said, an organic live studio album further showcasing Ursula’s diverse and complex artistry across many styles.

Critics have compared Ursula to celebrated writers like Sonia Sanchez and Nikki Giovanni. Coincidentally, when Ntozake Shange was unable to provideThe Roots with a spoken word contribution for their debut album Do You Want More?!!?!! (Geffen, 1994), they called on her to fit the bill.  “The Unlocking”, which closed the album, introduced Ursula to the world of progressive hip-hop and led to subsequent invitations to close The Roots follow-up albums Iladelph Halflife (Geffen, 1996) and Things Fall Apart(MCA, 1999).

In 2001, her !K7 debut Supa Sista featured production by 4HeroKing Brittand Jonah Sharp and introduced Ursula as a talented poet and solo artist with a strong lyrical voice. Backed again by an assembly of diverse, top shelf producers that included The RootsLouie Vega and Jazzanova, her 2003 release, Silver or Lead further extended her exploration of self, race and femininity. With ma’at mama, Ursula once again showed a new level of maturity in her writing. Never one to mince words, she exposes various personal insights and truths with steel-cut precision.  Her latest album wasRuckus Soundsysdom (Five Six) released in 2008 to more critical acclaim.

Ursula, a global activist, enlightens in the recording studio and at her powerful live shows. In 2005 she headlined the FREEDOM Festival in Australia, to raise awareness for Amnesty Internationals global Stop Violence Against Women campaign.  She recently completed an epic poem for a collaboration with Pullitzer-prize winning photographer Clarence Williams.  She has received funding from the Leeway Foundation and in 2010 was named a Creative Ambassador by the City of Philadelphia.

Her new and forthcoming album, She Said (out 1/11/11 on Noizeyboy Records) is the 5th solo album, and is executive produced by Anthony Tidd, of Noizetrip, for Noizeyboy Records.  This is Ursula’s first recording to feature a live in the studio session and focuses on Ursula’s well honed skill and prowess as an improv performance vocalist.

Ursula Rucker believes that art and poetry are catalysts for change. Her mission and calling is to heal herself, the planet, and its people through her art. While she sees the world as her community, she pays particular attention to the world of women, indigenous/diasporic people, and sufferers of injustice. Her poetry tells the stories of struggle, love, womanhood, peace, anger, injustice, and spirituality. As an artist who has performed in many continents, countries, classrooms, and community centers, Ursula sees herself as an ambassador of culture, socio-political issues, truth, and love.

PR: Layzie Bone to Release Two Album on 2/22


From RBC Records:

PR: Layzie Bone to Release Two Album on 2/22

Layzie Bone "THE DEFINITION" & "THE MEANING"
RELEASING TWO ALBUMS ON THE SAME DAY - 2/22!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 
After selling over 25 million records and touring the entire world countless times, any artist’s career would be instantly defined by those accomplishments. In a culture where the motto “Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t” gives certain validity to those seeking such, the practice of letting art define the culture has unfortunately subsided. Even with those accomplishments in his back pocket, Layzie Bone (the founding member of the legendary group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony) plans to release not one, but TWO ALBUMS on February 22nd, titled “The Definiton” and “The Meaning”, in order to finally define himself, his career and his culture.
 
With the initial street video “If I Can’t Do It” making its rounds, Layzie plans the follow it up with “Hear’em Knockin”, joined by his Bone Thugs group members, Krayzie Bone & Flesh-n-Bone as the first official single. With an attitude of their back up against the wall, each Bone member promises to go hard and never stop doing what they do best. Additionally, the Bow Wow assisted track “Every Night”, is slated to drop as the second single in the weeks leading up to the projects release date.
 
With additional features from Paul Wall, Chamillionare, Too $hort, Ya Boy, Baby Bash and more, "The Definition" and "The Meaning" prove to be one of the most ambitious Bone projects to date.
 
Having long plugged the independent label “Mo Thugs Records”, Layzie Bone eventually released his first solo album in 2001, titled “Thug By Nature”.  After following it up with “It’s Not A Game” in 2005, Layzie then recorded several collaborative albums with Young Noble from the Outlawz, A.K. from Do or Die and the street acclaimed Bone Brothers albums with fellow group member Bizzy Bone.
 
Founded in the early 90’s, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has sold close to 30 million records and was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance with their song "Tha Crossroads" from their E 1999 Eternal album. After several years of different lineups, the entire group (Krayzie, Layzie, Bizzy, Wish & Flesh) reunited for Uni-5: The World’s Enemy in 2010, re-solidifying their spot has one of the greatest collectives in Hip Hop.
