Inner-Soul Launch Night [TUESDAY – 11.02.2014]
What is INNERSOUL LIVE @ PLAY BAR going to be 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 DJ’s are carefully selected to cater for the strict genres of music we are going to be blasting week after week. 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 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.
PERFORMERS ON [TUESDAY – 11.02.2014] //
STELLA RHYMES //
Born and bred in Sydney, Stella Rhymes sings, raps and writes to the beat of her hometown. Growing up she’s taken the stage in front of crowds large and small with fierce interpretations of big hip hop soul hits. Passionate about Pin Up culture but she’s no 1950s housewife – this songstress scribes for the modern woman or her “LOLs/Ladies On Liquor” as she affectionately calls them. Of late you’ll find Rhymes in The Intellectunes studio recording original cocktails of hip hop mixed with dance-pop as she gets ready to serve you a taste in early 2014.
DANIEL MARCH //
It is about the song.
Not about playing guitar, not about singing incredible runs in perfect pitch; but about getting a message out there and only a good song can do this to its full capacity. I wanna bring about change and relativity to peoples lives, in my art through the vehicle of music, to anyone who has ears to listen.
WALLACE GOLLEN //
“Wallace has an undeniably unique soulful, sultry voice. Not only is Wallace’s’ voice magnetic, but so is her personality” – Warren Maxwell (Trinity Roots, The Little Bushmen & Fat Freddy’s Drop)
Wallace Gollan, who hails from across the ditch (aka New Zealand), is definitely a vocalist to watch. With a background in jazz and a blues-mad father Wallace brings a rich, sensuous tone to the hip hop and soul tunes she loves. Wallace’s vocal sound is heavily influenced by the likes of Erykah Badu, Little Dragon and Carmen McRae, just to name a few.
