Curated with classic hits from Hidden Beach’s extensive roster of 48 albums and over 500 songs from the past and present, the 15 -track compilation includes favorites from the label’s breakout artist, Jill Scott, groundbreaking Jazz and Hip Hop fusion series, Unwrapped™, Soul Train Award nominated R&B/Soul duo, Kindred The Family Soul, famed trombonist Jeff Bradshaw, 2015 Grammy®nominee, Angie Fisher and others.
“The fifteen tracks presented here chronologically were challenging to put together,” explains the project’s Marketing manager, Thornell Jones, Jr. “We constructed it so that there is one song representing each year since 2000 and because of this, many of the gems in the catalogue are missed. This collection is like a journey through time and showcases some wonderful, sometimes overlooked performances throughout the label’s history. It definitely shows Hidden Beach’s commitment to Real Artists and Real Music.”
Over the past 15 years, Hidden Beach has attracted an eclectic mix of icons to participate in a variety of recorded work. From Dr. Cornel West to country star, Darius Rucker, to gospel great BeBe Winans to rock legend, John Densmore (The Doors), the independent label has pushed the boundaries of creativity and recording. Standout projects include the historic “Yes We Can: Voices of a Grassroots Movement,” a music soundtrack created by request to support US President, Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign and inaugural CD – “Change Is Now – Renewing America’s Promise.” Standout studio recordings include “Who Is Jill Scott” critically acclaimed as one of the best albums of the 2000’s.
Today, Hidden Beach is a multi-pronged entertainment company delivering positive, high-quality, and passionate recorded entertainment experiences. The amplified entertainment company recently released a cappella group, Naturally 7’s U.S. debut, “Hidden in Plain Sight“, and they’re set to release Angie Fisher’s highly anticipated debut album later this year.
