Innersoul Live #13 **LIVE SOUL MUSIC** [TUESDAY – 29.07.2014]
featuring JEREMY GREGORY, DANIEL MARCH & SHAVAUN MARIE.
InnerSoul Entertainment & Play Bar present Innersoul LIVE.
Innersoul LIVE is a showcase of music artists in Sydney. Held fortnightly, Innersoul LIVE provides a platform for the next generation of artists in the Australian soul movement to have their music heard. Set in the inner city creative hub of Surry Hills, Innersoul Live at PLAY BAR sees carefully selected artists present an acoustic set of their original music in an intimate setting.
With the Australian soul movement out in full force, thanks to the international success of artists like the GRAMMY nominated Hiatus Kaiyote, Innersoul LIVE is here to keep that momentum going locally and beyond. Defying genre boundaries and stereotypes to cover everything from nu-soul, raw and real hip hop and reggae to soulful Rhythm & Blues, Innersoul LIVE is your mid-week dose of soul that will have you transfixed by the talent on display.
Artists that have previously showcased at Innersoul LIVE include ARIA nominated singer/songwriter Jeremy Gregory, Billie McCarthy, Ron E Jones, Tabitha Ojeah, Michael Duchesne (The Voice) and Chantae Cann (featured vocalist with GRAMMY winning Snarky Puppy and GRAMMY nominated The Foreign Exchange), Thandiwe Phoenix and more.
Come down, kick back, and let yourself be moved by the musicality of our local artists at Innersoul LIVE.
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.
DANIEL MARCH //
In July of 2012 Daniel quit his job, left his hometown and took a leap of faith and went to the USA, where he played some shows in NYC (Rockwood Music Hall) and in ATL (Eddie’s Attic, Smiths Olde Bar) and he also had the privilege of meeting some of his heroes from The Roots to The Impressions and some of his favourite producers such as Jamey Jaz.
He has just finished recording his full length album “Love Castle Dreams” in Atlanta with some of his favourite musicians and singers such as DOME records’ Khari Cabral Simmons (Donnie, India Arie), Chantae Cann (India Arie’s Backing vocalist), Landon Anderson (Anthony David, Frank McComb, Fabolous), Daz-I-Kue (Bugz in the attic), Nick Rosen and Julie Dexter (UK). The album was released on April 14th 2013. It showcases 9 brand new tracks that March describes as “having a common thread, a consistency in sound, i feel as though i have matured as an artist and these songs are like my first CD or something, they have the DM stamp on it, and i am very fortunate to have worked with the people i did on the record.”
