Pieta Brown's New CD, Remember The Sun, Out September 25

On September 25, 2007 One Little Indian Records will release Pieta Brown's Remember The Sun, an album steeped in the rising songwriter's unique personal history. The eleven new, original songs - all penned by Brown and delivered in her distinctive, throaty drawl - combine alluring poetry with a reporter's eye for detail. Produced by Brown, Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams), and Chris Goldsmith (Blind Boys of Alabama, Ben Harper), the CD has already earned strong raves in the UK, where it was released earlier this year. In addition, “Sonic Boom” from the new CD was featured as an NPR Song of The Day and will make “Are You Free” their Daily Download on September 25. Pieta is currently on tour with Mason Jennings and will be playing her own headline dates throughout the year -- see tour dates >>

Meshell Ndegeocello's New CD, The World Has Made Me The Man Of My Dreams, Out September 25

Nine-time Grammy nominee Meshell Ndegeocello will release her 7th CD The World Has Made Me The Man Of My Dreams on September 25, 2007, on Decca Records. Channeled through orchestral soundscapes and an unapologetic punk aesthetic, Meshell questions the inevitable, inconceivable brutality of the world with an arsenal of familiar themes: faith, rage, despair, fleeting joy and nagging doubt. Ndegeocello continues to defy pigeonholing of any kind, but long term fans will appreciate the unapologetic return to pure funk workouts on display in songs like "Michelle Johnson," "Headline," and "Solomon." Look for Meshell on tour supporting the new CD this Fall -- see tour dates >>
