Breaking the UK musical market coming from another country is a tough ask. No Asian artists have been able to succeed at this so far although some have got close. Leslie Loh made the top of the Music Week charts with a track, Boom Bang Bang in August 2003 produced by [Stevie] Eagle E and Doc B. That was the first and only Chinese artist to make the top of any chart in the West and since then no has come close. Now Master Opera Singer Jane Maria feels it is her time to make history and attack the British Charts with her mixture of Classical opera and (sometimes) other genres.
Head of Shlepp Entertainment Stevie Eagle E has confirmed that he will be working on a musical project with Norwegian singing star Beate Jacobsen this year. Stevie Eagle E and Beate Jacobsen met for the first time at the G Salvatore Showcase event in the UK and the two immediately hit it off.
B-Soul, Stephan Dante and legendary Bhangra musician Tubsy unveil new vibe at exclusive event in Birmingham [video]
B-Soul is here and it came with a bang at the Exclusive G Salvatore Fashion showcase event when the founders of this new musical vibe Stephan Dante and Tubsy Dholki Walla performed their first truly original B-Soul track ‘Dirty’ at the event. B-Soul according to Stephan Dante is a fusion of Soul, RnB with Bhangra vibes and influences thrown in. The concept originally sprung to life when Stevie Eagle E brought the two artists together for a previous event and involved during rehearsals. It was during these rehearsals that a unique bond was formed between Stephan Dante and Tubsy Dholki Walla and B-Soul was born.
We spoke with Stephan Dante on the phone about the event, B-Soul and working with the Legendary musician Tubsy Dholki Walla.
Anyone who has had to stand on a stage and perform can testify to how nerve racking this experience can be at the best of times. This experience has been known to break many a person. So you can imagine how much harder it must be for an autistic person who has a difficulty dealing with large numbers of people in everyday life. Prince Bayo known as the ‘autistic Prince’ has to deal with Autism and ADHD. He has been battling with this his entire life and when he has to perform or be around crowds his anxiety levels can go over the top. As he puts it. ‘It takes only one thing to not go according to the plan in my head and I am all over the place.’
No.1 selling Norwegian star Beate Jacobsen has come a long way since her no.1 hit Strand Hotel. The journey has been one of awakening and change. A Journey that as she puts almost led her to quit the industry altogether. Now though, she is back and with a new sound and new energy for creating even more great music. Beate Jacobsen flew into London to perform live for the first time in a while at the G Salvatore fashion showcase in Birmingham at the M-Club.
