*R&B singing sensations All-4-One started their music careers with a 1994 self titled debut album which released a single, “I Swear,” that garnered them a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. On September 15, 2009 they release to stores a new CD, “No Regrets,” on Peak Records/Concord Music Group. “We actually have been recording, but not in the U.S.,” group member Tony Borowiak said about their absence from the music scene. “We’ve been recording overseas, falling in love, getting to know our family and playing golf!” In addition, member Jamie Jones released a U.S. solo Gospel album. Now All-4-One is releasing in the U.S. the new project, which is a melting pot of R&B styles. The album takes you to old school, then they give you the signature All-4-One style and then they add the new Urban R&B sound. “One of the things we believe in is God giving us an abundance of talent,” Member Jamie Jones said about their career and musical successes. “We go in the worst inner city schools and say its not about talent its about the work. You can’t rely on just your talent.” All-4-One, a four member group that also includes Delious Kennedy and Alfred Nevarez, is one of those groups that are known for their harmony. That smooth harmony is still evident in “No Regrets.” The platinum selling artists have already released the first single, “My Child,” a song that member Jamie says is one of his favorites. My favorites on the “No Regrets” CD include “When I Needed an Angel,”  an awesome love song with beautiful violins; “If Your Hearts Not in It” evokes tears and is so heart-wrenching; “You Don’t Know Nothing,” an a Capella finger snapping number; “Ol’ Fashion Lovin;” a very strong love song; the title track “No Regrets,” an Urban R&B cut, and “If Sorry Never Comes” another Urban number. The CD is produced by The Heavyweights (Jamie Jones) and executively produced by All-4-One.

Reggae singer/songwriter Tarrus Riley releases third CD in the U.S. on VP Records Best Male Vocalist and Best Song 2008 International Reggae and World Music Awards winner Tarrus Riley releases his third album, “Contagious,” on Cannon/VP Records. I miss Reggae and when I listened to the CD I wasn’t disappointed…at all! What I heard was true Reggae with vocals reminiscent of John Legend, imagine John Legend singing reggae, thats what I hear in Tarrus. The album is so much grounded in the roots of Reggae, any Reggae lover would love this CD. “It’s something for everyone, “ Tarrus Riley said about “Contagious.” “It’s not for one set of people…the message is love yourself, love your community.” Riley, who released his debut album in 2004 in Jamaica, sees his music in the same light that Reggae music’s legendary for and that is to be a “healing message.” Riley, who offers an amazing 18 cuts on the CD, just finished a 25 city tour. The tour started in Hartford in early August and ended in Queens in early September. The songs on the “Contagious” CD that I find myself listening to over and over again include “Let Peace Reign,” which has a great message and sweet vocal support by Etana and soulful vocal support by Duane Stephenson; “Good Girl Gone Bad,” featuring Konshems; “Human Nature” a great Reggae take on the Michael Jackson cover song (with even the signature electric guitar lead); “Soul Mate,” a love song that makes you rock – and I love the horn support; “Young Heart” is a nice head-bobbing love song, and “Start a New.” For more on Tarrus Riley and his “Contagious” release log onto www.myspace.com/TarrusRiley or www.VPRecords.com.
