CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion – Common Ordinary Housewife

 

CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion has been captivating the globe with original, live music for more than 16 years. Their blend of blues, soul and roots music uplifts and inspires audiences with messages of hope, love and the belief that anything is possible. They pride themselves on providing incredible live music experiences that transcend cultural and generational barriers.

 

The funkiest musicians to ever touch the stage, Soul Kamotion is the smooth and passionate, Chris Baptiste (Keys & MD); the creative and innovative Terrell Kimble (Bass), the ever-so-rhythmic James Adkins (drums), and the multi-talented Lavon Rushing (Guitar). They have as their song 90 Mph suggests, one gear – high energy. Lead singer, CeCe Teneal is an award-winning, undeniable talent who both critics and fans call “a musical force to be reckoned with,” and her achievements in the industry over the past decade are certainly a testament to that view.

 

The band’s new live album, “#5or5000”, is a captivating, energetic and entertaining blend of songs that catapult you to a place where you just can’t hold back. It’s funky and fun, addressing all stages of love and living our true life. It’s enchanting yet powerful, encouraging us to move and groove on the dance floor and to embrace life. It’s faith-filled, purposeful and reflective when reminding us to appreciate our blessings, not take love for granted, and why we sometimes feel alone even when we’re in a relationship. It’s sassy and authentic when talking about the dangers of love, conquering each day and doing your own thing.

 

The album’s first single, “What I’d Do To Get Your Love Back” was originally written by CeCe’s mom, international blues singer Yvonne Jackson, and when the band listened to it, the words took on a whole new meaning. The song is an opportunity to reflect on what that moment would be like to get someone’s love back for just one day – a parent, sibling, friend or love interest. We’ve all been there.

 

In total, “#5or5000” reflects CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion’s mission of giving the same show and a hundred percent of themselves, whether there are five or five thousand people in the audience. This band is a well-primed musical force and prepared to spread their message on a global scale.

Strong A.R.M. – That’s Gangsta

 

STRONG A.R.M. is the name that describes the 6’2, 200 plus pound Brooklyn native who is definitely taking on ALL HATERS!!!! It’s a perfect description of his overall attitude. This is one artist that believes anything goes when it comes to his music. He did not choose to do hardcore hip hop, hardcore hip hop chose him!!! It allows him to say what the hell he wants. Bringing it straight to the front line so your attention is caught and kept. Don’t get STRONG A.R.M. wrong though, that is just one area of hip hop he is good at, he is versatile in all other areas as well. STRONG A.R.M. is coming straight out of Brownsville, Brooklyn NYC!!! He has been going at it for years now, and he is not about to let anyone from his past, present, or future get in his way!!!! He is self-motivated, and determined to continue until he accomplishes his dream. He has spent his entire career learning the business and perfecting his skills as an artist, writer, and producer. In the immediate future STRONG A.R.M. intends to get into every existing piece to this hip hop puzzle. For right now though, he is ready to get his material out, and his face seen by the world. There is no doubt he is ready to be heard, and it is a fact YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH THE STRONG A.R.M.!!! Now it’s really on!!!

Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

Before Hip-Hop, I felt like I had no kind of identity whatsoever, and when it came to certain things, I would always get passed over.  Once I started rapping though, people started recognizing me a little bit more, haters included (laughs). As time went on, Hip-Hop gave me my walk, my talk, my style, and basically my whole self-esteem came from being a part of the Hip-Hop culture.

.

.

.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

Wow! The reception has been better than I anticipated.  It’s truly been great all over the world. Even in countries I can’t pronounce (laughs). The love and the write-ups have been a true inspiration for the new music I am currently working on.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Well really my man Warren J. at Survival Crew Records is holding me down in that arena because he has done the whole marketing and promotions side with record labels before in the 90’s like : LOUD Records, Priority Records, Relativity Records, and WEA Distribution just to name a few (And many other indie labels in between). He studied a lot on the business end of the music industry! We even had a radio show back in the days on 105.9 F.M. (WNWK). The show was called “THE MUSICAL EXPRESS”. EASY MO BEE even co-hosted some shows with us. There were many famous D.J.’s on the station like MR. MAGIC (R.I.P), THE AWESOME TWO, EVIL DEE, and the famous radio broadcaster MR.GIL BAILEY on the Reggae music tip.

And my man Warren J. has me ALL OVER the internet! FOR REAL! My IG page is actually D.J. STRONGA.R.M. and my D.J. company name is called MAGIC DICE MUZIC.

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your song.

I use the Pro Tools program and an Apple computer to trigger everything.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind the song.

‘That’s Gangsta’ is anything that is HOT, GOOD, and even GREAT; anything you do in your life that is considered your best. It’s more like saying ‘that’s bad’ when you actually imply that something is good. It’s more appropriately used when you achieve the feat against all odds, even when people tell you that you couldn’t do it in the first place.

.

.

.

State your musical skills.

Strong A.R.M. = the A.R.M. means “A REAL MC”. I am also a DJ, and back in the days I used to beatbox when I was in this group. My name was THE HUMAN AMP BOX (laughs). I really and truly lived by the order of being in the Hip Hop culture.

.

.

.

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

Not long. Once I hear the beat, I go from there. And the song is done not long after that.

.

.

.

Discuss music in full details.

I love music in different formats as well. Like I said earlier, I am a DJ. So I love to listen to different sounds, and see how I can make them relevant for myself and/or the project I am working on at that time.

.

.

.

State your five favourite genres of music with reasons.

HIP HOP – That’s what I am!!!

 

R&B – I really like a good singer.

 

DANCE – Music that can make you feel free.

 

REGGAE – I love the different rhythms.

 

POP – I grew up listening to U2, and BOY GEORGE, WHAM, and DAVID BOWIE! The NEW artists are very good too like RIHANNA, PINK, ARIANA GRANDE, BEYONCE, and KELLY CLARKSON just to name a few. Really too many to mention (laughs).

.

.

.

State your favourite musical instruments.

Drums, Piano, and Guitar.

.

.

.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

It is a beautiful thing! I could be having a bad day but when I feel the energy from the crowd, all negativity goes away for a moment. The chemistry between me and my fans is a GREAT one! BELIEVE THAT!

.

.

.

Discuss your personality in full details

My personality is that regardless of the situation, I am always going to give you THE REAL ME! You might not always like it (laughs) but you cannot say that you think that I am playing a role to make you feel better.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

Like ANY artist, I have been through plenty of UPS and DOWNS in this business of music! I have gone through “A BUNCH” to be at this point you see me at today. And I know I am going to go through PLENTY more! But like my record label states, I’m a SURVIVOR! And like the phoenix flying out of the ashes, I WILL RISE!

.

.

.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

When I think back, one of my most memorable moments is when I got to shoot my first solo video for a song titled ‘Let’s Get It On’. I mean it was the greatest feeling ever with all the people who showed up to support what was going on. It was great. Before that, it was seeing my name on a record. It was the coolest thing ever.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

R&B is my favorite genre. Singing about any topic preferably situations based on real love always touches the heart in a sympathetic way. I always wished I can sing but that’s not where my talent lies.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience as a musician.

Music has been part of my life since the age of 5. I’ve met a lot of people along the way. My journey has turned me into not only a writer and composer but also a performer, producer, promoter, engineer, and DJ. I guess it’s what comes with the territory of being a real musician.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your song.

“What You Need” theme is focused on lust, affection, and fun times. Wanting to give to get what you want from one but with good vibes.

.

.

.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

The people behind my journey are myself, and DJ Mike Smooth. My will and strength, his way and guidance, we shall taste success in its freshest form.

.

.

.

Tell us your future goals.

My future goals has always been my goals from now, which is to become a pioneer, icon, and a role model.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

My debut album “Rookie of the Year” was released March 27, 2018. I’m getting more streams and notoriety with each day that passes – such a humbling experience.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

My music is meant to take my fans on a positive mental journey with me. How it inspires them is totally up to them.

.

.

.

Analyze the transformations you have discovered so far in the music industry.

The music industry is constantly changing with each song, each day. Staying relevant is the only way to stay afloat in which I plan and have no problem with doing.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

Michaels (myself) that should be self-explanatory.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

My lyrics all come from my heart and mind, whatever and however my soul is feeling. It doesn’t have to be to a beat or instrumental, it just has to be real.

.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

As a proud satisfied solo artist, I love collaborating with other artists. It gives the music more point of views and sometimes direction.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the music with a genuine message that inspires them.

Music was made to bring people together and dance. That was at the beginning of time. Then artists found ways to actually vent in their music, to what situations they or someone else are going through. Not necessarily to inspire but to make aware of what’s going on.

.

.

.

Explain copyright.

Copyright is a legal right, existing globally in many countries, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine and decide whether, and under what conditions, this original work may be used by others.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performance Rights Organization.

ASCAP makes sure I’m paid and protected.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

I produce (beats) music with no direction. I just go at it knowing it has to sound relevant for today’s modern era. When it’s finished, then I listen to what it’s saying to me, then I decide what to write about.

.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording of this song.

I produced “What You Need” at my older sister’s house in Brooklyn not knowing if it was something I would actually write a song to. I originally wrote the song lyrics to another beat I produced but the beat was much darker and not so commercial. I had to weigh my options on what would be more beneficial to the project.

.

.

.

Discuss your music performance.

My performances are very special to me; also addicting but scary at the same time. I connect with the people through the music, without it; it’s hard to connect with them. I always leave the stage with an intoxicating feeling that no liquid or substance can give me, and that’s what makes it addicting.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Michaels, because that my name.

.

.

.

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

“Rookie of the Year” because I am.
