Brooklyn: Keziah Jones and Sophia Urista at Weeksville, July 16


Keziah Jones and Sophia Urista will be putting on a free show (yes, FREE) this Saturday, July 16, 2011 at ‘A garden party’ at Weeksville in Brooklyn. Keziah is a Nigerian born rocker who's clearly been influenced by a wide range of music- from Fela Kuti to Jimi Hendrix.  Dude is nasty with his guitar, which he often flips onto his lap and slaps at, playing it somewhat like a slide guitar, with fluidity, rhythm, and awesome melodies.  His voice is the perfect blend of butter and light weight rasp as well.  Definitely a live show you don't wanna miss.

Deets:

Listen to Tems' New EP 'If Orange Was A Place'

The buzzing Nigerian is also announcing her signing to Since '93/RCA Records and her placement as Apple Music's Up Next artist.

Tems is striking while the iron's hot and sharing her new 5-song EP, If Orange Was A Place.

The new release comes a few days after she dropped its lead single, "Crazy Tings," an addictive and bounce-heavy track produced by Ghanaian beatmaker GuiltyBeatz.

If Orange Was A Place also features a single guest appearance from American singer Brent Faiyaz — who lends his vocals to "Found" — and production from Jonah Christian. It was mixed and mastered by Spax.

The new EP comes alongside the news that Tems has signed to Since '93/RCA Records and been announced as Apple Music's latest Up Next artist.

Tems has been a highly-buzzing name in the last month with her feature on Drake's Certified Lover Boy, in which she appears on the song "Fountains," and for the massive popularity of her single alongside Wizkid, "Essence," which recently got a Justin Bieber remix.
