Happy Summer everyone:) Whew, it's already hot and humid here in Nashville/Music City, USA. Yet, the summer eve's are magical with the fire flies blinking along with the songs of crickets and tree frogs filling the thick night air. 

Speaking of summer, take a visit the music page and get a taste of my 8th CD: ‘Our Own Paradise’, which is packed full of festive vibes: Upbeat genres of Island-Reggae, R&B and Pop/Rock, surely has one jonsing for a pina colada,  all the while imagining being on a Carribean Beach Resort!

Here's a fun lyric video from this Summer album:

The 1st media single release from this CD, ‘We Shall Overcome’, calls forth a reckoning pertaining to equality & social justice.  This song’s powerful presence leads one to feel the strength of empowering and insightful messages, witnessed in several Chakra Bleu songs. 

The 2nd release ‘Be My Love’ made a strong imprint upon the Americana Charts!

 

As y'all know,  I like to simply call my style, 'Americana'  because it is inclusive to a varity of genres such as Pop/Rock; Country; Blues; R&B; some Reggae, Cajun and Bluegrass too.Yet, when away from the Biz Scene, I enjoy listening to Jazz, Latin/Mariachi/Cubana; World Music, (ei. Celtic, Afrobeat, Middle Eastern, etc.).

After hearing Chakra Bleu's brand new (7th) album, titled, 'ALL OF ME,' the reputable radio promoter, Gary Leftkowith, desired to promote the single, 'The Shadow', and off it went!!!!

   Gary has promoted records of many artists including Mick Jagger's (Charmed Life); Lee Ann Womack ( I Hope You Dance); Shania Twain's (From This Moment); Donna Summer ( Carry On): Fleetwood Mac's (The Chain); Joan Jett's (Bad Reputation); Ace Of Base's (Whenever You're Near Me; Prince; LeAnn Rimes; Julian Lennon, and more..

   The first single from ALL OF ME, titled 'The Shadow', hit the reputable (NMW) Radio Charts with amazing receptivity, including the following:

                                             #4 Top 40 Charts

                                             #4 Hot 100 AC/Hot AC

                                             #5 Top 40 Internet

                                             #1 (5 weeks in a row) INDIE Top 40

The 2nd radio Title single: 'All Of Me', from this CD, reached #2 on Top 40 (holding two weeks in a row!) as well as #7 Hot 100, & #1 on Indie Top 40 (holding five weeks in a row!)

Chakra Bleu's 7th & most current CD, "ALL OF ME', embarks the listener on yet a new journey of R&B/Groove! Yes, she's a writer and recording artist of Pop, Rock, Country, Groove/R&B...just simply call it: 'Americana', which AMA Executive Director Jed Hilly has defined: "It's contemporary music that honors and/or derives from American roots music, period."

'Sweet & Sultry with a shake a Sass' is how she coins the vibe of this album. Imagine a crackling fire, red wine and cozy company.. A delicious listening experience with hints of Anita Baker, Sade, and more of her favourite R&B artists.

She hand picked Nashville's top R&B/Groove players to accentuate each of her songs of this CD to the fullest.
