Insider Gossip
donSMITH releases his brand new album!

BREAKING NEWS!!

Dont Ask Me Where Im From is the NEW soulful and culturally articulate full length from donSMITH.

Concise in length, the 30 minute album is entirely produced by Zoomo, a soul sampler buzzing amongst the underground and Peter Rosenbergs weekly real late night Hot 97 radio show.

The album is now available on Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, Apple Music and all the major services.

A track that exudes a heartfelt yearning for the truth to be forthright and prone within life, the synth-Americana track, imbued with a Goth-lite backbeat is a fresh reminder of James ongoing, and immense musical pedigree within the business.

With limited features from east coast artists like PayDay signee Radamiz, and D.C.s quickly rising emcee Ankhlejohn, donSMITH proclaims his cultural pride and geographical commitment, especially at the hands of gentrification.

Watch the video for the first single Table on YouTube now!

On additional tracks like Piragua and NYCHA, donSMITH is boldly emphasizing a central theme: for us, by us, while records like donDADA and All I Got give praise to the family and women birthed in the culture of uptown, New York City.

This album acts as the centerpiece to donSMITHs soulful and politically charged duel EPs Dear Culture and Postscript, circling back to a central theme: for us, by us.

About donSMITH:
donSMITH is a 27 year old Harlem-bred artist and storyteller, illustrating the harsh realities and triumphs of his black and brown culture. Initially a producer and musician, donSMITH began to focus on the lyrical aspect of music.

Eventually releasing his first EP, the Harlem emcee performed all over New York City, including The Knitting Factory, Bowery Electric, National Sawdust and more.

donSMITH strives to create art that reflects the beauty birthed by struggle, trials with finding god, and cultural evaporation.

Raw vulnerability and soulful storytelling are the backbone of donSMITHs message, aiming to breed hope and fellowship among listeners, no matter where they are from.

The band, which is James together with producer, musician, composer and arrange Ricky Humphrey (Ishkah/Nature Kills/Rise), have just-released a brand new single, Honesty.

A track that exudes a heartfelt yearning for the truth to be forthright and prone within life, the synth-Americana track, imbued with a Goth-lite backbeat is a fresh reminder of James ongoing, and immense musical pedigree within the business.

Its such a small, simple thing
This honesty,
Its such a small, simple, strong, vital thing
This honesty, honesty.

Is this fragile thing that we hold between us
Really going to be the end of all of us.
If we break it, if we break it
Why would we break this honesty,
And lay waste to all we see.

Indeed, Honesty can be listened to and digitally purchased right now on Bandcamp!

Chris St. John Releases Brand New Album!

BREAKING NEWS!!

Over the last quarter century, Long Island Singer/Songwriter Chris St. John has truly led a diverse and successful professional career in the field of law as a prosecutor, judge and practicing attorney.

Now, his dream of lateral success in the music business is starting to become a reality, as his LP, Im Dreaming, is now available on www.chrisstjohn.com, Soundcloud and all the major services.

His instantly satisfying first single from the record I Called You Rose, hit Number #3 on the Euro Indie Music Charts and #8 on the World Indie Music Charts - with a second tune Id Send You My Heart - hitting the airwaves now.

The album includes 13 original songs plus a cover of Peggy O and a musical score that connects two compositions.

The topics include the loss of love at a young age; the loss of his parents; the birth of his son John (now 18) and life with his wife of 27 years Elisabeth; a surprise DNA discovery; a serious illness where he was put in a medically induced coma, and a nurse sang him back to life; the loss of a young relative in a car accident and the subsequent climb out of depression; alcohol addiction and recovery; and a gift from his grandmother that he intends to return to her someday.

My professional career is what I do. These songs are who I am. They are about my personal life. The songs have been written over about 30 years, with four new ones written in the last several months to finish up the album, St. John reveals.

Chris also worked in the State Department, participating in the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in 1987; and lived, studied, and taught in China later that year. He was also a Congressional Aide and is now a volunteer firefighter.

In 2015, he and his friend started a not-for-profit charity called HALO Missions, which provides medical care, clothing, food, farming equipment, and surgeries for AIDS orphans and the extreme poor throughout Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean.

St. John adds, The title of the LP is Im Dreaming because some of these songs were dreamed in my sleep and written down when I awoke. Others came from daydreams.

There are so many references to dreaming in the album. I guess I like to dream. People have told me I should write a book or make an album. This is both to me.

Listen to and Purchase Chris St. Johns Im Dreaming on Spotify!
