What can really be said about this multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer, musician? Only that she deserves all the accolades she’s received to date. Georgia Anne Muldrow‘s self-released debut album Olesi: Fragments Of An Earth got the attention of Platinum Pied Pipers and Sa-Ra, who later had her on their own projects. Olesi caught the ear of Peanut Butter Wolf, who quickly signed her to his Stones Throw label and re-released her debut in 2006 on his label.
What so great about this young lady is she’s only 22-years-old! Her right-hand man in music is Dudley Perkins and the two are known as the Ashford & Simpson, Rene & Angela in the game as their music creations are magical. Her rugged and raspy vocals are often layered in a floaty melodic way; the J Dilla influence is apparent with the hard yet smooth edge. Surrounded by a cabal group of R&B non-conformists, her creative juices are completely uninhibited. Her latest release Georgia Anne Muldrow Presents… Ms. One & The Gang cannot be compared to her previous solo releases but what this album does show, is an artist growing into her craft and is able to consistently produce good music – regardless of who is on the mic or boards. Ms. One & The Gang shows us that Georgia Anne Muldrow is an artist we should watch grow.
A few of the tracks from Ms. One & The Gang are available on iTunes and it’s international release date is set for May 19. But check out the songs below and tell me what you think!
