PERFORMERS ON [TUESDAY – 08.04.2014] //
WHAT IS INNERSOUL LIVE @ PLAY BAR ALL ABOUT?
Innersoul Live is an exclusively secured event space for people in the Entertainment Industry to come in, enjoy, relax, and most of all appreciate good music.
Our entertainer’s are carefully selected to cater for the strict genres of music we are going to be performing. Only giving gratitude and thanks to the origins and classics of our times, with everything from Aretha Franklin to Jodeci, Jill Scott to Marvin Gaye and J Dilla to John Legend, without forgetting such classics as Bob Marley to RUN DMC.
Our aim is to take you way back to the sweet sound of soul, incorporating that with the funky sound of reggae and transitioning to the best beats of Rhythm and Blues, at a venue that is engulfed with the atmosphere and culture that urban music today, in Australia, has been aching for.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE…
Unlike our competition in the industry, our unique purpose will not only be to support a newly flourishing culture, but to also play a key role in it’s development and evolution.
We wish to provide the urban music community, here in Sydney, with a venue and event that will provide a platform for all members of this culture to meet, greet and showcase the love they have for the art.
From Live performances on a bi-weekly basis from Sydney’s raw unseen talent, collaboration events, bringing the arts, such as photography & street art (Graffiti) together as well as Web designers, publicists, managers, musicians, producers and all industry heads, bringing forth our own family of dynamic individuals into the one space simply for the unconditional love we all have for our Roots and what we see is possible for our future.
So come down and lets celebrate for the past, for the present and for all that’s to come in our future’s.
JEREMY GREGORY //
With powerhouse vocals once described as ‘one of the best voices ever heard’ by music mogul and Grammywinning producer/rapper Dr Dre, accompanied with impeccable stage presence, Jeremy Gregory is a born entertainer with the ability to captivate audiences from the first note on.
Born in Durban, South Africa, Jeremy’s introduction to the diverse world of contemporary music didn’t begin until his early teens. With nothing but heavy gospel influence in his house, he started listening to bands like Boys II Men and Jodeci, and realised that pop music could also be really passionate and that opened a lot of doors.
He soon discovered Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone and many other great soul, urban blues, R&B and pop artists dating all the way back to the 50′s.
In 2004, Jeremy signed a record deal with Warner Bros Records and produced a self-composed hit, That’s What’s Going Down – and earned its footing on the Australian Top 40′s singles charts for three full weeks.
That song went on to make more waves in the industry, which eventually led to APRA & ARIA awards’ nominations in 2003 and 2004 respectively. APRA and ARIA are both prestigious determinants in Australia’s music accreditation and artiste recognition.
Jeremy has worked with many prolific R&B/Hip-Hop artistes the likes of Macy Gray, Babyface, and British Pop Idol Will Young, all but to name a few. Not a force to be reckoned with, he has been globetrotting, from United States to Australia to Indonesia to Singapore. Don’t hold your breath, for he is not stopping anytime soon.
Born in Portugal and raised in Australia’s sunburnt lands Ines embodies all the sensual exoticisms of a European goddess and all the blatant upfront no-bullshit characteristics of a people who descended from thieves and cutthroats.
A veritable Janus with one face looking to the past and one that looks to the future, explored and expressed in the rumbling soul of her music. A predator, a vulnerab le young woman, a dualist.
A futuristic exploration of sounds from the past – jazz, soul, rhythm and blues.
