Hey everybody !
I hope you’ve had a nice Christmas with your family and that Santa has been nice to all of you. After this Christmas songs series, I would like to introduce you a pop/soul trio from Los Angeles called Cable Car.
Maria Zouroudis is known for her powerful, yet heart-felt voice, delivering a fusion of soulful pop and R&B.
Her ability to tell a story through each song has helped her build a YouTube channel with over 10.8 million views and 40,000 subscribers. Maria’s music spans the globe with international press and radio play, as well as features on national TV networks such as CNN, ABC and FOX. Most notably, her version of “Unthinkable” was danced to on one of America’s favorite television series, “So You Think You Can Dance.”
On Shannon Labrie’s debut album Just Be Honest, she kicks off the proceedings by staring down her demons and admonishing her biggest fears with “Secret,” a retro-R&B influenced song laced with vibrant horns. The young songwriter comes by her fears honestly, battling a serious (and ongoing) illness at age 9 and losing her father at 14.
Jody Brock is a 20 year old singer/songwriter from South West London. As a child Jody was mesmerised by the soulful sounds and voices from artists such as Donny Hathaway, Etta James, James Brown, Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone. The raw emotion, the dark warm tones and husky growls established by these great artists can all be found within Jody's sound among many other inspirations from the genres of rock, blues and jazz.
Gianna Salvato, 17-year-old solo artist, has accomplished much already in the dawn of her musical career. Her impressive resume includes working closely with top music producers to singing in legendary venues. Behind it all is her sultry voice, peppered with innocence and emotional depth.
Sarah Williams is a Nashville singer-songwriter, and pianist who voices her stories with an original blend of country, soul, and rock-and-roll. Sarah recorded her retro debut album Ruby shortly after completing a degree in piano performance. Since then, she has further developed her sound by co-writing with some of Nashville's finest and incorporating the varied influence of 1970s powerhouses like Greg Allman and Carole King. In 2012, she formed the girl-pop duo Sarah and Lindsay with co-writer Lindsay George and released an original EP, Let's Call it Love.
