'HEAVIE' METTLE: N'Dea Davenport

When vocalist N'Dea Davenport hits the City Winery stage tonight (Thursday, August 10), she'll be performing songs not just from her time with the U.K.-based band the Brand New Heavies but also from the extensive catalog of tunes she's built up before and after joining the acclaimed group. And what a wide-ranging catalog it is from hip-hop to jazz, house and more. But before she treats local audiences to a sonic walk down memory lane, the Atlanta native chatted with CL about the stories behind some her biggest non-BNH projects.


"Trust Me" from Guru's Jazzmatazz Vol. 1: "I had a great relationship with rapper Guru, who I did know when we were much younger in school. And then we met on another level as professionals in music, and he really wanted me involved with the Jazzmatazz project. And it was great because it was that first infusion of jazz live instrumentation and hip-hop. I wasn't a hardcore jazz musician, though I had the affiliation. But the jazz artists that played on the album like Lonnie Liston Smith, Dr. Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers those guys were so embracing of young people who were interested in jazz. There was no separation of generations."



"I Might Do Something Wrong (Ethan White Raindrops Remix)" by Tortured Soul featuring N'Dea Davenport: "Well I'm a former New Yorker, and the lead singer/drummer of Tortured Soul John-Christian Urich and I met there, we became friends, and we started to write songs together. And also, I saw the band live somewhere, and I thought they were kind of a cousin of the Brand New Heavies. I really, really liked the vibe of where they were coming from, and I always liked their song "I Might Do Something Wrong," so it was an honor to be asked to work on it."


N'Dea Davenport, self-titled solo album: "I initially had a solo deal before I met the Brand New Heavies through Delicious Vinyl. But after I made my first departure from the band, it was rewarding to get back to my solo work. At that time, the producers were literally the artists and weren't allowing artists to express themselves. But with all the production and writing work I had done with the Brand New Heavies, I didn't want to turn everything over to some producer and not actually keep developing my own production skills. With the solo project, I had the freedom to be the executive producer, find all my musicians, book the studios, write the music, even be the accountant; I controlled every dynamic."


N'Dea Davenport plays City Winery tonight (Thurs., Aug. 10). $25-$45. 7 p.m. City Winery, 650 North Ave NE, Suite 201, Ponce City Market. www.citywinery.com/atlanta.

First, the bad news: On July 27, Creative Loafing published the last issue of our weekly print edition, marking the end of a tradition in Atlanta that's persisted for nearly five decades.

OK, now the good news: Today, Aug. 17, we released the debut issue of Creative Loafing's new monthly newspaper. And, no, that wasn't a misprint: CL has officially made the switch from a weekly to a monthly. And while that means you'll be getting your dose of CL in print less frequently, it also means you'll be getting a bigger, better and bolder version of the paper you know and love on a regular basis and much more of us on the web (more on that later).

Why the change? Well in today's rapidly evolving media landscape, we saw this move as the best way to serve you, our readers, and the way you consume information.

To that end, we've beefed up our page count, switched to a fancy cover stock and rolled out a brand-spanking-new logo. Once you flip deeper into this edition, you'll see we've extended the redesign vibe through the entire issue. On top of that, this month we're bringing back some sorely missed editorial elements from back in the day (our Arts Agenda and Soundboard listings, for example) and rolling out some newness as well (such as a revamped News & Culture Briefs).

A monthly iteration of CL in print also means you can expect a beefed-up presence online. We'll be rolling out even more content at creativeloafing.com every day and unveiling fresh additions to the mix like our new hip-hop podcast, Atlanta Untrapped, and more. And all that is just the beginning.

Stay tuned for up-to-the-minute info about our latest moves. In the meantime, peruse our new print issue, and see what we've got in store for this new era of Creative Loafing.

On top of that, this month we're bringing back some sorely missed editorial elements from back in the day (our Arts Agenda and Soundboard listings, for example) and rolling out some newness as well (such as a revamped News & Culture Briefs).

A monthly iteration of CL in print also means you can expect a beefed-up presence online. We'll be rolling out even more content at creativeloafing.com every day and unveiling fresh additions to the mix like our new hip-hop podcast, Atlanta Untrapped, and more. And all that is just the beginning.

Stay tuned for up-to-the-minute info about our latest moves. In the meantime, peruse our new print issue, and see what we've got in store for this new era of Creative Loafing.

We also press play on a few fresh tracks including Goldyard's "Down4It" (feat. Grip Plyaz), from the Fuck Culture III mixtape, Stan "Steam" Smith's "Jammin" from his Splash Gordon project, and Count Bass D's "Too Much Pressure" feat. Snoop Dogg and DJ Pocket.

You may know BOSCO from her ever-evolving career as a singer/songwriter; she's been cranking out soul/R&B/hip-hop/other sounds since dropping her debut EP, The Spectrum, in 2008, and she made major noise with the release of her Girls in the Yard mixtape, which she created with famed DJ Speakerfoxxx, in 2016.

All that said, though, she's much more than just a music maker. When it comes to the creative worlds of fashion, graphic design and video production, among others, she's always had a lot to say so much to say, in fact, that she launched her own creative agency, SLUG, earlier this year. Based in the ATL, SLUG offers services like event planning, photography, set design and more to a wide range of clients.

With a resume like that, surely y'all see how BOSCO makes the perfect Guest Culture Editor for CL. And her takeover couldn't have come at a better time, as she's gearing up to release a brand-new collection of songs titled b. on Aug. 11 via the Fool's Gold record label. The new project features collabos with artists like Niia, Anna Wise and Atlanta soul duo St. Beauty (check out the video for "Castles" below).
