Exclusive Interview: Parachute Discuss Intimate Acoustic Tour | “Wide Awake” Album | & More w/ @MFWERadio

Now, after a decade of touring internationally and turning out hit singles like the platinum “She Is Love” (#1 at iTunes), the gold “Kiss Me Slowly,” ‘Forever And Always”, “Can’t Help” (from the album Overnight, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200), PARACHUTE’s last album reclaimed the spirit that first sparked their love of music. They quickly followed up this successful opening slot with their sold out “Getaway Tour”, in the spring of 2017, returning to some of their favorite venues from over the years. Parachute will play a series of intimate acoustic shows this Fall, while continuing to work on new music to be released in 2018. Checkout our latest and exclusive interview with Parachute NOW.

Exclusive Interview: Louis York Talks Masterpiece Theater Act II | Weirdo Workshop | & More on @MFWERadio

After fifteen Saturdays spent in a studio, surrounded by bad Chinese food and good times, Louis York was born. The musical creation of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, their first album is not one genre. Or influence. Or thought. Or message. It’s an exploration of it all. When stepping behind the mic for the first time in their careers, the Grammy nominated songwriter and producer decided to throw out every rule the business had told them to follow. It doesn’t matter how long, how many transitions or how many genres. Kelly and Harmony found themselves searching for one thing, and one thing alone – GREAT music. Music they’re proud to introduce to the world. Music they believe does their rhythmic predecessors proud. And the two have tapped into their eclectic backgrounds and respective New York and St. Louis upbringings to do just that. Every vocal you hear is straight from Claude’s pipes. And every sound a product of Harmony’s hands. Their music truly comes from their hearts, written for the love of music and nothing else. But words simply don’t do the justice a play button can. So enjoy ! Checkout our latest and exclusive interview with Louis York.

Exclusive Interview: Tweet Teases New Music, Essence Music Festival, & More w/ @MFWERadio

Her undeniable talent, incredible voice, and striking beauty are the reasons she stands out from the rest and the reasons why she’s had staying power in the fickle, precarious music industry. Since emerging on the scene, songstress and songwriter Tweet, born Charlene Keys, has been a favorite for R&B music lovers. Now, after a six-year hiatus, she is back with her third studio album Charlene, a testament to her professional, personal, and emotional evolution. Charlene is more than just what some might call a “grown and sexy” album.  It’s a soulful, beautifully candid album that showcases Tweet’s dynamic vocals, and her artistic writing ability.  Charlene is food for the soul that will feed Tweet’s loyal fan base hungry for her return, and also pique the appetite of new fans with its powerful, expressive tracks delivered with passion and fervor, and a different, more mellow and poised sound than her previous hit albums, Southern Hummingbird and It’s Me Again. It’s been quite an exhilarating and enlightening journey for Charlene Keys, who has carried the nickname Tweet since childhood. Born and raised in Rochester, NY, Tweet grew up in the church, sometimes attending service seven days a week, and it was in the pews that her love for music began.  She sang in the choir for years as a child, played the drums in the church band, and even became part of a gospel group that performed all over Rochester. She signed with eOne in 2012and got back into the studio with her longtime friends and producers Craig Brockman, Nisan Stewart, John “Jubu” Smith, and Charlie Bereal to record Charlene. From the first single “Won’t Hurt Me,” an anthem for women completely over a bad or ungratifying relationship, to the alluring “Magic” where Tweet croons in her angelic voice, “It must be magic/ Cuz what you do to me, I can’t understand it,” to “Neva Shouda Left Ya,” where Tweet sincerely regrets ending a relationship, lovers of pure R&B music will find themselves in sonic heaven. Missy also makes an appearance on the new album and the musical chemistry that she has with Tweet on the Timbaland-produced track “Somebody Else Will,” is quite evident and nostalgic. Because of the many gems on Charlene, it is the type of album that can be listened to all the way through, over and over again. Checkout our latest interview with Tweet and go get your copy of the new album “Charlene” now.
