Cornell CC Carter His signature sound has won him fans around the world since his debut Album In The Moment was released in 2016. CC performed all lead and background vocals on the entire album, and was also instrumental in the music’s production! Following it's release he was able to collaborate producers like DJ Spen, Boogie Back etc to put out several highly acclaimed remixes.
In 2017 Cornell released Vindicated Soul, a remarkable collection of soulful covers of artists including Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Willie Hutch!
His highly anticipated third album One Love! soon shot to the top of The Soul Connoisseurs Chart where it remained for over a month and soon reached Number 1 in other UK charts too.
A seasoned performer he has opened for many legendary Artists including James Brown, Ray Charles, The Whispers, The Temptations, Natalie Cole, Dionne Warwick and Kool and The Gang. He was also a member Narada Michael Walden’s all-star band.
Now for the first time UK audiences can witness his phenomenal stage presence, high-powered audience engagement, and his extraordinary and dynamic vocal skills.
It is apt we are supporting CC as we share our philoshies on supporting Artists as he loves to share his talents with aspiring artists and veteran performers alike. He established CDC Productions, his own production and record company geared toward assisting these artists to follow their dreams while also teaching them about the time and dedication it takes to reach their goals.
Darryl Ander Agape Soul (Featuring Zoe Ellis) AgapéSoul is the brainchild of bassist Darryl Anders, who grew up playing trumpet before switching to bass.
His career began on gaming platforms reproducing songs for best-selling products. Seeking a more personal creative outlet for his own burgeoning artistry, he brought together a collective of musical friends to help him record a batch of jazz and R&B oriented songs he had co-written Believe in Love, the first album under the name AgapéSoul, earned comparisons to popular R&B/jazz ensembles Incognito and Brand New Heavies – and hit No 1 in 2012 on the Soul Chart in the UK.
The long awaited follow-up Conversations is driven by Anders’ singular musical vision that taps into a deep universal truth extending from the core idea of the band’s driving concept. “The name AgapéSoul comes from the idea of God’s agape love for mankind, soul- the place within in us where music comes from, and our overarching love for that music,” says Anders. The Album reached No 1 in the Soul Connoisseurs Chart.
Core band members (drummer Aaron Green, guitarist Cam Perridge, and vocalist Zoe Ellis) are joined by a dynamic array of well-known guest artists including Grammy winning singer/songwriter/producer Tommy Sims, British singer/songwriter Geoffrey Williams, jazz/R&B guitar legend Paul Jackson, Jr., guitarist Levi Seacer ( Prince’s New Power Generation), New Orleans music scion Ivan Neville (clavinet), guitar sensation Eric Gales and saxophonist Chris Bullock and trumpeter Michael Maher, members of the three time Grammy winning fusion band Snarky Puppy.
Famed for his live performances uplifting audiences and creating positive vibes. AgapéSoul singer Zoe Ellis brings passionate, romantic and seductive soul to her vocals.
Rose Vincent An exceptional talent,her stunning debut album includes the lead single “All Night”, a track that has already received heavy airplay on the BBC, Magic, Mi-Soul, Jazz FM etc.
Rose has perfored live in the UK and Europe including supporting Betty Wright, Finely Quaye & Jarrod Lawson. Born into a musical family her father is Stevie V who had a No1 in the UK & US with Dirty Cash “Money Talks”. She began her singing career working with her father but more recently for her debut Album has been collaborating with Carmichael Musiclover.
The album promotes honest, real lyrics and was recorded with a very organic approach to music making each track recorded a 'live' vocal with no preparation just freestyling according to how the music makes her feel. She believes this way you stay true to the music! This approach seems to have worked as the response has been fantastic and is already shooting up the Soul Connoisseurs Chart. She is definitely one to watch for the future with a tremendous voice.
