    BRENDA NICOLE MOORER is having one hell of a year. The sweet-voiced singer-songwriter kicked things off in April by releasing Brand New Heart, her second full-length „ and most critically lauded „ collection of jazz, soul and folk tunes. Then in May, she earned her first solo shot performing at the Atlanta Jazz Festival and, in the months that followed, played venues like City Winery and Variety Playhouse, opening for drummer Brandon Williams and other musical heavyweights. On top of all that, she recently struck a deal with P-Vine Records to get Brand New Heart distributed in Japan „ so we can only imagine that even bigger things are on the horizon.

    With a distinctively jazz-coated and slightly off-kilter vocal style, singer Gwen Bunn has emerged as the most promising new voice in Atlanta’s soul music scene. Bunn made a splash in 2012 by lending her talents to saxophonist Darryl Reeves’ album Mercury on the remake of Roy Ayers’ classic “Every Time I See You.” Later that year, she grabbed mainstream shine by repeatedly winning “Wild Out Wednesday,” a talent contest on BET’s “106 & Park.” Her streak continued into 2013, when she joined forces with acclaimed producer/musician Zo! to record the bouncy track “Count to Five,” the first single from his latest release, ManMade. Bunn also handled co-production duties on rapper Schoolboy Q’s “Collard Greens,” featuring hip-hop darling Kendrick Lamar. On top of all that, she’s currently putting the finishing touches on Melody Dungeon, her second self-produced album, which includes the ultra-mellow, super-dreamy track “Epitome” that’s been building buzz for months. www.reverbnation.com/gwenbunn. less...
