Voice Of The Streets by Preach

PREACH 514

Meet the business minded, laid back brother of the bunch who could flow the water out of the pacific easily!!
Preach is a contradiction to what has been experienced in hip hop over the last decade and what we've gotten used to as the norm...
He is no gangster, yet he speaks to and of gangstas. His name is
Preach. Yet he is at times cruder than Dave Chappele drunk at a batchelor party and fully admits that he himself is not a religious person. So he can't be a concious M.C? Right? Wrong.
Preach is defining what is to be a God fearing black man growing up in the inner city workings of the ghetto.
Raised in one of Montreal's grittiest neighborhoods during the coke rush of the 80's, Preach has a different understanding and respect for street life and maintains to relay positive messages within his music.

Blending hip hop, soul and his west indian roots,
Preach brings about a flavour in his music that people of many different backgrounds have a hard time not moving to.

Writing from his heart about topics that are close to his heart, such as single parenting, killings among the youth, domestic violence, sucicidal teens and most of all, his hood,
Preach is poised to rremain as artistic as possible.
Preach is a seasoned performer who always captivates his audience with his charming personality, energetic movements and his unique commanding voice.

Preach performs regularily with a range of live bands in Montreal including 1) The Kalmunity Vibes Collectiv, an organic hip-hop/funk/afro beat collective of musicians, poets, singers and M.C's from his native city, who has allowed him to perform alongside such acts as Zenzile from France, Kali of Kali & Dub , Lillian Allen and The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble which Preach recalls as his most trying yet fulfilling performance " they held a spontaneous on-stage workshop with the whole band in front of a filled concert hall... it was nerv racking at 1st, but seeing where they led us and the dynamics they thaught, in the end it was all worth it".
Preach is also a member of 2) The Soapbox, which is a performance poetry theatre created by Stephen Thomas, geared towards challenging and promoting lyricists, singers and musicians in a improv/spoken word setting and 3) S.H.A/R.(O).N Brooks, who has allowed him to share the stage with her at such venues as the THE JELL-O BAR, Sofa Lounge, Bourbon Street West, Torontos Revival, The recent Funk Soul Festival Club.
Preach can also be heard on S.H.A/R.(O).N'S, upcoming LP "Defining Me" getting a chance to say his piece on S.H.A.R.(O).NS' 1st single Booty Call, and the definitive R&B JAM "Sweet Kisses". Preach has also worked with Stephen Thomas writing and "singing" the hook on "Puff of Smoke". He has also shared studio sessions with such producers as James Disalvio of Bran van 3000 and French superstar Jean Leloup.

Preach has been meticculously working on his solo album "Voice of the Streets" which still has no definite release date, but will be ready by mid 2006. In the meantime he has released his crews debut album Lasalle Chronicles Chapter One, currently only available via internet at -WORLDPHONIC.COM- and peroral sales.

Preach is the future of hip hop muzik.

 

 


I Lie a Little by Muddy Fraser

The guitar found it's way into Muddy Fraser's hands when he was 11 years old and living in Ottawa,then Muddy found his way into the guitar, and it's the Vancouver Blues scene that's all the richer for it. Beginning in his early career playing the usual round of high school dances and local functions, it didn't take long before the young guitar player/singer was setting up his gear on more visible stages. At the age of fifteen he played Ottawa's L'Hibou coffee house where he could sit and listen or sit in with blues heroes like Howlin' Wolf,Otis Span,Taj Mahal and James Cotton.

If there had ever been any question as to which direction Muddy would venture musically, those auspicious meetings laid any doubts to rest. Some people are born to play the Blues. Whether he knew it at the time or not, Muddy Fraser was one of them. At age 20, Muddy was playing in The Take It Easy Blues Band with the drummer from Howlin' Wolf's band, who hailed from Chicago. The other guitar player in that band, Jim Prophet, got Muddy into B.B. King's music and Chicago blue-style guitar. Armed with that inspirational honing skills on guitar, blues harp and vocals, Muddy and his band toured Canada and the United States playing the coffeehouse and college circuit.

In 1975, it was Vancouver's turn to discover Muddy when he moved to the West Coast. It didn't take long for the tall man with the Les Paul and the soulful voice to make fans and musicians alike sit up and take notice. He became a familiar presence at Vancouver's premiere blues club, The Yale Hotel, playing with co-founder and bassist for the Powder Blues band Jack Lavin, in the bar's backup band. Together, they supported such established acts as Pinetop Perkins, Taj Mahal, Big Joe Duskin, Guitar Shorty.A.C. Reed and countless other blues greats. " We hosted the jams. We did one on Saturdays and a double on Sundays. Any body that was in town playing, recording or filming would drop in to listen or sit in. I did a few tunes with Gary Busey one time and got to jam with Jimmy Page once. That place meant a lot to me." Muddy recalls fondly.

In 1983 and 1985, Muddy recorded two independent albums with his own band, The Muddy Fraser Band. A credit to his song writing skill that combine traditional blues elements with inspired new material, both albums boast an impressive selection of original tunes. In demand by other local blues musicians, Muddy's contributions can also be heard on several notable recordings. Russell Jackson, who played bass with B.B. King for seven years, made use of Muddy's talents both as a writer and player on his 1993 album,The Alley Man. Muddy's harmonica playing is featured on local artist Tim Hearsey's recently released CD, Close Calls, and he can also be heard on Best Kept Secret,a harp compilation album recorded live at The Yale and distributed by Thumbs Up Music. Currently, Muddy is busy fronting The Muddy Fraser Band, and bringing his own brand of soul satisfying blues to the Vancouver-area clubs. He also spends his time teaching and has recently been making inroads to the film industry, with appearances in several locally shot movies.Muddy has received a diploma in internet development and spends a lot of time making web sites and graphics for c.d.covers.
