The Pulse of Entertainment: Actress Kelly Greyson’s film projects based on true stories

Actress/film producer Kelly Greyson stars in three film projects, two based on true stories.

Actress/film producer Kelly Greyson stars in three film projects, two based on true stories.

*“I am so excited to be a part of the film,” said actress and film producer Kelly Greyson about Returning to the Hiding Places, one of three films – two based on true stories – released that she stars in. “I want to be a part of the 1% that lay down their lives, to die for it.”

Greyson is talking about the story Returning to the Hiding Place about a group of teens that risk their lives to free Dutch Jews from Hitler’s’ realm in Holland. The film was screened at the Sundance Film Festival, and won three Triple Crowns at Bel-Air Film Festival. Kelly plays the character Lana, and it also stars David Thomas Jenkins (Hans Poley), Mimi Sagadin (Corrie ten Boom), John Rhys Davies (Eusi), and Craig Robert Young (Piet Hartog).

“So many young people lost their lives in front of the firing squad. The film is so powerful. The director was mentored by him (Hans Poley), knew him personally,” said the former model about the person the film is based on.”

The director of Return to the Hiding Place is Peter Spencer.

In the film To Have and To Hold Kelly plays Lady Jocelyn Stewart. Directed by Ray Bengston, To Have and To Hold will be released later this year.

Greyson also appears in Alone Yet Not Alone about two sisters abducted and force to live with Delaware Native Indians in the 18th Century during the French and Indian war of 1755. It is released to theaters June 13, 2013. Kelly plays the role of Barbra in the film that also stars Jenn Gotzon, Clay Walker, Christopher Judge and Aiden Turner.

“The more truthful the more effective,” Kelly pointed out about why most of her films are based on true stories. She went on to say about Alone Yet Not Alone’s early 2013 limited theater release, “I heard they turned down 650 people who wanted to see it. At the Florida Festival it won three awards.”

Noel Gourdin releases new project, ‘City Heart, Southern Soul,’ on Shanachie

R&B/Soul singer Noel Gourdin releases first Shanachie project titled 'City Heart, Southern Soul.'

R&B/Soul singer Noel Gourdin releases first Shanachie project titled ‘City Heart, Southern Soul.’

*R&B’s Noel Gourdin released his first project on Shanachie Entertainment titled “City Heart, Southern Soul.” This is his third album release. The soulful singer/songwriter’s music has been heard on the soundtrack of the film The Cookout starring Queen Latifah, and was a featured singer on pianist Brian Culbertson’s ballad “You’re My Music.”

“It has taken about two years to put the album together,” said Noel, the R&B singer with the very skillful soulful vocals. “I had 25 records…the label’s request was to get it down to 10.”

The first single off of the album, “City Heart, Southern Soul,” was “Heaven Knows”. The album’s selection “Foxxxy” reached Top 10 on UK Urban Radio Soul Charts, and the song “Don’t You Wanna” was featured on VH1’s “Love and Hip-Hop – Atlanta” reality show.

“It’s been a long journey, but I don’t regret anything,” Gourdin said about the early days of struggles. “I miss the grind, late travels to New York from Boston. It was so pure.”

Noel explained in the early days the label he was on, Sony, controlled everything.

“I can express myself freely without people looking over our shoulders,” he said about his new deal with Shanachie. “This album is just me, nothing forced at all. The first and second albums, particularly with Sony, a lot I had to cut that I felt I wanted to do. This album was so much easier and fun. I was able to work with producers and writers that I hand picked…a small group of under rated writers and producers that don’t get the light, but they work with integrity. (Shanachie) They get it…great to work with people who get it. They take it back to the root. It’s great to be ourselves.”

Noel Gourdin’s sound is influence by Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and Johnny Taylor, but yet its fresh and new. My favorite selections on the album include “Spotlight” a very loving song; “Foxxxy” for its fabulous horn support, and I love what Noel does with his voice; “Patience” has that old-school feel, and I love the horn support on this one too; “Don’t You Wanna,” and “I Want You (Regardless)” for its funky beat, and almost Latin feel.

The Pulse of Entertainment: The Floacist Releases ‘Rise of the Phoenix Mermaid’

The Floacist,  Spoken-Word powerhouse, releases ‘Rise of the Phoenix Mermaid’

thefloacist2

*“This is the most prepared I’ve ever been for a project,’ said The Floacist, seven-time Grammy Award nominated (Floetry) Spoken Word artist, singer and songwriter, about her newest solo album release on Shanachie titled “Rise of the Phoenix Mermaid.” “I was extremely prepared.”

The Floacist, who co-created the hits “Say yes” and “Getting Late,” excellently blends her vocal abilities and Spoken-Word skills with the back drop of great production by Chris “Big Dog” Davis.

“I love to collaborate, which is why I never wanted to be a solo artist,” said the Germany born Jamaican heritage R&B artist about the project. “The art work (on the cover) is Phylicia Ghee the creative director on this project. We’re very blended in spirit. When I told her the title…she knew a location and had ideas. She designed the dress herself. “

The Floacist talked about the photo shoot for the album cover that Ghee also did along with designing the cover, and the fabulous red dress she wears.

“I don’t create with expectations,” The Floacist said. “I create with intentions. Being 35 and not having the 20 year old energy in me any more – I have a peacefulness…with the record…I submitted to the path it created.”

The Floacist said she hopes the listeners become more “self aware,” “feel positive vibrations,” and “touch their past to effect the future.”

“Rise of the Phoenix Mermaid” is set to be released March 18, 2014 on Shanachie Entertainment. My favorite cuts on the album include “Feel Good” which has a lovely Spoken-Word/singing combo sound she delivers with a nice flow; “Try Something New (I Do)” had her Spoken-Word skills throughout offering a fresh way to “listen” to a song, and the lead guitar support is sweet too; “Good Love,” “Wisest Thing” because of its sweet word-flow, and “Omi Oi” for its great harmonies, and the vocals/Spoken-Word combinations are outstanding also on this one.

Contemporary Saxophonist Jackiem Joyner ‘Evolve’ with newest album release April 29, 2014

Contemporaty Jazz/R&B saxophonist Jackiem Joyner releases new album, 'Evolve.'

Contemporaty Jazz/R&B saxophonist Jackiem Joyner releases new album, ‘Evolve.’

*“I was anxious to get back to writing my own material,” said Contemporary sax-man Jackiem Joyner about the motivation to release another solo project titled “Evolve” (Artistry Music/Mack Records). “’Church Boy’ was covers…I wanted something unique.”

Jackiem uniquely offers 11 Contemporary Jazz/R&B selections that truly gives a clear picture of his “evolving.” Keyboardist Keiko Matsui and saxophonist Gerald Albright are featured artists on the project.

“There had been songs playing in my mind for months,” he said about the recording process. “Some songs speak of the moment in the studio. This was one of my longest writing processes. It took over a year…to be what I wanted it to be.”

A Virginia native Jackiem Joyner was discovered by Rick Braun and Richard Elliot. He released his debut in 2007 titled “Babysoul.” He went on to performance alongside Albright, George Duke, Marcus Miller, Kirk Whalum and Najee.

My favorite songs on the “Evolve” project in “Breathe” a sweet Jazz selection; “Generation Next” Smooth Jazz at its best; “Europa,” featuring Keiko Marsui, because she adds just the right touch to make it crystal clear; “Late Night,” and “A Gentle Walk on Water.”

A Smooth Jazz winner for his debut, Joyner also plays the flute and is known in the Gospel music industry. Log onto www.JackiemJoyner.com or  www.MackAvenue.com for more information.

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in the Paramount Pictures presentation of Noah.

The Pulse of Entertainment: Noah, Starring Russell Crowe, is an Epic Interpretation of the Biblical Tale

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in the Paramount Pictures presentation of Noah.

*Darron Aronofsky’s Paramount Pictures presentation of Noah, starring Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator) as Noah, inspired by the Biblical character is an epic interpretation, and it arrives in theaters March 28, 2014. Aronofsky is the director and co-screenwriter, along with Ari Handel. Their creative version of the story of Noah’s Ark will force you to pick up the Bible to see what variations were made.

Crowe did an outstanding award worthy performance as Noah the man hand picked by God to save his precious living creations. It is said that one thing Darron stayed true to, to the letter, was how the ark was made. A massive “ship” made from wood that was big enough to carry a male and female of every living species known to man at the time. Noah’s immediate family were the only ones to be saved from the rain waters, rains they had never experienced before, that consumed and destroy every living thing not on the ark.

Academy and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) played Noah’s wife Naameh and gave an outstanding performance, as well as Logan Lerman who played Noah’s son Ham. In the film Ham was a rebellious head-strong son. Douglas Booth who played Noah’s son Sham was the obedient one who took on a wife Lla played by Teen Choice Award winner Emma Watson (Harry Potter) – whom in the film was saved as a little girl by Noah as she laid dying along the side of the road.

Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lamb), as always gave a performance worthy of honors, he played Noah’s Holy Father Methuselah who in the film possessed powers that only God could have given. International Emmy Award winner Ray Winstone played a descendent of Cain, Tubal-cain, the child of Adam and Eve cursed for killing his brother Abel. He gave an excellent performance as well of a ruthless king determined to save himself from the world’s destruction.

Also in the cast is Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte (48 Hours) the voice of Samyaza the leader of the Watchers (Fallen Angels) who eventually helped Noah build and protect the ark. Kevin Durand was Watcher Og who saved and protected Noah from his fellow Watchers who initially wanted nothing to do with the “humans.” Rated PG-13 Noah is shown in 2D and IMAX theaters.

Erica Campbell of Mary Mary debuts solo album, ‘Help,’ on eOne Music, garners Grammy nomination

Grammy Award winning Erica Campbell of Mary Mary releases debut solo album "Help."

Grammy Award winning Erica Campbell of Mary Mary releases debut solo album “Help.”

*“I wanted to keep going and Tina wanted to slow down,” said Erica Campbell of the Contemporary Gospel sister duo Mary Mary about why she released a solo album, “Help,” which first single “A Little Bit More Jesus” received a Grammy Award nomination. “Me and Tina had talked about it. She said, ‘Go on…’ I let it flow. We did initially have a concept in mind, but it turned into something different. It’s music from my heart.”

Together with her sister Tina Campbell as Mary Mary Erica had already garnered multi-Grammy, NAACP Image, BET and Stellar Awards, but “Help” is all her. The album is full of Contemporary Inspiration and Gospel songs. When asked which song on the album was her favorite, as with her sister Thomasina “Goo Goo” Atkins a celebrity stylist I interviewed at the BET Celebration of Gospel tapping, she picked “Eddie” a song she penned for her father who passed away last year.

“’Eddie’ is about my dad. Warryn asked me to do a song about him and I wasn’t sure I could do it without crying,” she confessed. “I started to write it and burst into tears but I kept writing.”

Warryn Campbell, Erica’s husband is executive producer of the “Help” project released on their own label My Bock Inc/eOne Music. It includes song writing help from Gerald and Tammi Haddon on “I’m A Fan,” Percy Bady penned “Changes,” and label mate Music Soulchild, Tina Campbell, and Marvin Winans, Jr. provided background vocals.

“I want them to be encouraged, let it take you through all the emotions,” Campbell said about what she would hope the listeners get from the “Help” project. “God is our help…he is the reason we exist and its only through his strength we survive.”

Of the 13 selections on the “Help” album my favorites include “You Are” for it has a nice Pop sound; “A Little More Jesus” for its finger snapping Holy-Ghost flavor; “I’m A Fan” a sweet love song to a wonderful God; “All I Need Is You” a great Contemporary Gospel selection surely to be a hit; “Changes” a nice smooth Contemporary number, and “P.O.G.” an anthem of the power of God. You can follow Erica Campbell on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @ImEricaCampbell.

The Pulse of Entertainment: Grammy Nominated Ledisi Stuns Again with Latest Album ‘The Truth’

Grammy nominated Ledisi stuns again with latest album release ‘The Truth’

Grammy Award nominated Ledisi releases new album, "The Truth,"

Grammy Award nominated Ledisi releases new album, “The Truth,”

*“Everyone knows me singing ballads, I wanted to show another side of me,” said Grammy Award nominated Ledisi (Young) about her latest album release “The Truth” released March 11, 2014. “Everything is centered around me. I confess I love to dance and let go. This is a little bit more of me.”

Let go is exactly what she does on this album of 13 outstanding selections that will have you rocking the entire time. Executive produced by herself and the legendary Rex Rideout “The Truth” is released on the Verve/Universal Music imprint. Featured on the album, aside from the help of Rex, is songwriting wonder-boys Ivan Barias and Carvin Haggins, and the golden-touch songwriter Claude Kelly.

“I was transforming,” she pointed out about the obvious changes in her album tempo. “I was getting all these ballads. I said I want to be up-beat…I was going to dance class.”

If you watch her perform live the first single off of “The Truth,” “I Blame You,” you can safely say she passed the dance class. Her last project “Pieces of Me” coincided with a book release, “Better Than Alright,” and when asked about another book release for this album the New Orleans native said, “I’m writing a book but kept having to put in on pause for this album…which started my career, but I’m still an author.”

The Ledisi “The Truth” Tour kicks of April 16, 2014 in Florida with the Robert Glasper Experience, and will reach my hometown of Baltimore May 4th This is the talented singer’s seventh album. Her skills even had her performing for the First Lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday; in fact she has performed at the White House so many times they need to give her, her own room.

Advice she gives my young readers that are aspiring artists is, “Enjoy who you are and embrace yourself.”

My favorite songs on “The Truth,” though the entire album could be released as singles, include the first single “I Blame You” because she shows how powerful her vocals can be; “Rock With You” because it has a sort of Moroccan feel; “Lose Control” because it slows the album down a little; “Anything” has support of the lead guitar which I love; “Mine” has a military style drum beat that I love; “Miss Doubt” has a nice beat as well and it took be back to old-school; “I Swear,” and “88 Boxes” a very cleverly written, deep and meaningful selection.

Brian Culbertson re-releases his debut album and makes it a classic with ‘Another Long Night Out’

NAACP Image Award nominee Brian Culbertson re-releases 1994 debut as "Another Long Night Out."

NAACP Image Award nominee Brian Culbertson re-releases 1994 debut as “Another Long Night Out.”

*Contemporary Jazz pianist Brian Culbertson re-released his 1994 debut album “Long Night Out” with a slight name change, “Another Long Night Out,” and production improvements that most surely will make it a classic. Amazing how some music is ageless, like the soulful spirits of some people. Culbertson’s new album release on BCM Entertainment certainly shows this to be true.

“I had been thinking about doing this for years, the remaking of the original for 20 years,” said the NAACP Image Award nominated instrumentalist, known as a pianist, but he also plays keyboards, trombone, drums, bass, trumpet, percussions and euphonium. “I thought the original was lacking in production. It was made by a 20 year old in the studio….with a drum machine.”

Well Brian went all out in the production department compared to what he was working with as a 20 years-old while at DePaul University recording demos in his bedroom. On “Another Long Night Out” he was working with real drums, a real piano and some of the best Jazz instrumentalist in the business, which includes Paul Jackson, Jr., Fourplay’s Chuck Loeb and Nathan East; Yellowjacket’s Jimmy Haslip and Will Kennedy; Ricky Lawson, Michael Thompson, Lenny Castro, Russ Freeman, Eric Marienthal, Candy Dulfer, and Toto’s Steve Lukather.

The Jazz/R&B/Funk Illinois native enlisted a 38-piece orchestra for the project most of which he said were inspirations throughout his career.

“Five years ago I got serious and started putting a list together,” he pointed out. “I had many people that inspired me. I’m bringing all that…I was limited. Didn’t have multi-tracks, I had six. On this, some songs have 200 tracks! I didn’t have a piano. I have the greatest on this. This is strictly Jazz…I had been doing Funk & R&B.”

Brian is also founder and artistic director of Brian Culbertson’s Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, a five-day festival of wine and Jazz in Napa, California that is slated for June 11 – 15, 2015.

Some of my favorites cuts on the “Another Long Night Out” album release include “Horizon” for it shows the essence of Jazz; “City Lights” has a nice and smooth feel; “Heroes of the Dawn” has a Jazz/Funk feel and I love the horn support; on “Beautiful” his piano skills are outstanding and the lead guitar is so sweet, and “Double Exposure” has a nice feel that had me wanting to do the Cha-Cha, and that lead guitar was actually screaming – I love when a guitar player does that.

“Another Long Night Out” is surely going to be a classic Brian Culbertson project. For more on him and his latest album release log onto the six-time Oasis Smooth Jazz Award winner’s website at www.BrianCulbertson.me.
