Cashmere Readies Debut Album "Take Me Away"

Tywan M. Harris, rapper/songwriter, and entrepreneur, known as Cashmere, is proud to announce the release of "Take Me Away", the debut album by the Brooklyn rap messenger, on December 21, 2010.

Cashmere unveils his most inner thoughts and intimate feelings about the life-alerting events that led to the making of "Take Me Away", which wasn’t an easy journey for an aspiring and amazing talented artist that has gone through a lot of trials and tribulations in his early ages.

"The title 'Take Me Away' is something I asked God to do for me. To take me away from the negative things I was around, to take me away from the ghetto, the struggle, the poverty! At the same time I wanted him to also take me away to unbelievable heights, and let me enjoy all the fruits and labor of life, the way he said we are to enjoy."

"My debut album 'Take Me Away' means a lot to me as I put all my heart into it. It's the beginning of my new life and the first time I have really felt alive in a longtime. It's been a long road to get to where I am at now and I didn't just get here; I've had to learn the importance of patience, and understanding, and the best is yet to come."

The acclaimed lead single, "Where's Cashmere?", has already been released and well accepted by fans and critics and officially marks Cashmere's return to the Hip-Hop game, followed by the infectious single "It's My Time" -- music videos for both singles have already been released.

"I was one of, if not the, hottest up-n-coming Hip-Hop artist in NYC before I ran into troubles with the law. So everybody was asking where I was and what was going on with me -- they asked 'Where's Cashmere?' so I’m letting everybody know that Cashmere is back again to bring that crown back home."

Cashmere's career dates back to 2003 when his mixtape "The Proposal" was released, hosted by DJ Kay Slay, followed by "Me & My Music" (2006), hosted by Mr. Cee -- both critically acclaimed projects. In one of many articles written, The Source claimed that, "Cashmere is leading the charge to bring the Hip-Hop crown back home." Cashmere has worked with many artists including Bun B, Big Daddy Kane, Jim Jones, Lil Boosie, Akon, Maino and a host of others while being featured on albums such as DJ Kay Slay's "Streetsweepers Vol. 1", and the follow up "Pain From The Game".

In Cashmere's music you will find that you are envisioning a story so real and full of life, revisiting a feeling you have felt, and a sound you will want to replay over and over again. Cashmere recognizes his eagerly awaited album as his opportunity to showcase his skills once again, implying that this project is the culmination of years of practice and progress.

"Take Me Away" will be available in stores on December 21, 2010 via The Cash Administration.

PR: Etana Set to Release New Album & Digital EP

From VP Records:

Etana Set to Release New Album & Digital EP

November 23, 2010


(VP RECORDS, NEW YORK)  - Reggae singer/songwriter sensation Etana returns with her highly anticipated sophomore album Free Expressions in February 2011 from VP Records. Before her new studio effort hits the shelves, VP Records is releasing a digital EP entitled Free, which features three of her current hits that are also included on the album. The digital EP drops on December 7, 2010, to satisfy fans during the wait for the full-length album.

Etana deems this second album Free Expressions because she adamantly refuses to be constrained by approach or lyrical content. "This album was produced a little differently from the first, most of the sessions were less planned so there is more of a free vibe," she reveals. "I just wanted to express myself freely, write just what I want without thinking too hard about what anyone's opinion would be - just doing music as I feel to do it."

Fans are so consistently enthralled by Etana's music that several tracks from Free Expressions have already topped the charts in Jamaica and reggae charts internationally, including "Free," "August Town" and "Mockingbird." The album's first official single "Free" was produced by Kemar "Flava" McGregor and offers a somber reflection of a prolonged period of struggle endured by the artist. Its second single "Heart Broken" is equally as heartfelt with London-based producers Curtis Lynch, Jr. and Gussie Clarke at the helm.

Etana's unabashed romanticism shines on the lovers' rock tunes "I Know You Love Me" and "Happy Heart," with both tracks produced by Flava. "Move On," also produced by Lynch, adapts a neo-soul reggae fusion that laments a break-up tale that embraces life's new possibilities, as does the upbeat reggae track "My Name Is," which was produced by Stephen Stanley. She also targets those erroneous character assessments and the cutthroat competitiveness that dwells throughout the music industry on the roots rocking "Mockingbird," produced by Flava, and the hip-hop tinged "Venting," produced by Lynch.

Etana highlights her soulful side on "I Got You," produced by Specialist and Alborosie, while "Day By Day," produced by Joel Chin, offers spiritual renewal. "People Talk," produced by Rohan Dwyer and Specialist, reflects her determination to succeed against all odds in the music business.

Free Expressions also furthers Etana's reputation as a skillful songwriter as she penned 12 of the album's 14 tracks. Her regal countenance, uncompromising messages of self-empowerment and the lyrical depth of her distinctive hit-filled catalogue offers a major challenge to the dominant perception of female artists' images and identities. With Free and Free Expressions, Etana offers revolutionary changes in popular Jamaican music, one captivating, genre-blurring song at a time.
