Nu-Soul Thursdays: Jeff Bradshaw
In this episode, the Nu-Soul Gardeners Kimani Anku & Darrylnne sat down with Soul-Jazz and Hip-Hop/funk Innovator Jeff Bradshaw. It was SOUL AMAZING!
A North Philadelphia-born soul-jazz and hip-hop/funk innovator and trombone virtuoso, Jeff Bradshaw spent his formative years honing his chops alongside some of the biggest names both in and out of the Philly soul movement. By the time he got around to releasing his solo debut, 2004's critically acclaimed Bone Deep, he had shared the stage with such industry luminaries as Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Patti Labelle, Erykah Badu, and countless others. Bone Deep made him a festival circuit mainstay, and he spent the next eight years refining his signature smooth and immediate sound in both a solo setting and in support of artists like Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, the Roots, and Jill Scott. In 2012 he issued his sophomore long-player, Bone Appetit, which featured a host of guest artists, including Kindred the Family Soul, Raheem DeVaughn, Floacist, and Marsha Ambrosius.
Nu-Soul Thursdays: Garth.
Emerging Soul Artist Garth. got next on Nu-Soul Thursdays with KIMANI Anku and Darrelynne and it was A SOUL GOOD TIME! Check it out, Folks...
Garth. is a New York City-based singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, with over 3 million streams on Spotify. His 3rd studio EP, Our Father (released Oct '21), is as evocative sonically as it is lyrically. The production of the project runs the full gambit of deep soul grooves, to 80s-r&b-surf rock, all while giving Garth. the space to be reflective, jubilant, and mournful. Put on this record when you need to two-step, clap back, or weep -- it's all in there.
His previous EP, "Melt", featured a unique blend of funk and soul, with melodies that tap into what makes us lighthearted in one moment and what brings us to our knees the next. The single, "Melt", was featured as a sleeper pick on the Joe Budden Podcast (Episode 291).
Garths. debut EP, "Human Nature", offered a fusion of R&B, Pop, and Electronic beats with lyrical prose that speak to love, life, and loss. The success of "Human Nature" led to a U.S. tour in the spring and summer of 2018. Prior to that, his performance highlights include shows at Carnegie Hall, Apollo Theater, Brooklyn Bowl, Bowery Ballroom, and Irving Plaza. Garth. released his 3rd studio project in October and debuted new material and stage show at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn, NY on October 15, 2021.
