Sugaray Rayford

A chance meeting in Memphis laid the groundwork for a unique musical partnership between soul-blues powerhouse Sugaray Rayford and producer, songwriter Eric Corne. Combining classic soul melodies with funky R & B grooves, raw blues power, and mashed up with modern sensibilities, the pair’s first collaboration, Somebody Save Me, earned Rayford a 2020 Grammy nomination while later that year he took home Blues Music Awards for ‘Soul Blues Male Artist’ and ‘B.B. King Entertainer of the Year.’

NEWBAN

Back in what now feels like a golden period in music and creativity, in the 1970s, many bands were formed by students. It almost seems like so many people could either sing, play, dance or write songs! This was also the case of several Woodland High School students in New York, who created Newban with fellow classmates.

Durand Jones & The Indications

“Power to the people” /“Never heard ’em say” 

Label:  Colemine Records 
Release Date: 4th April 2022Format:  7’
Event: Record Store Day 
Quantity: 1900
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

“This 45 marks the label’s 100th 45 and what better way to celebrate it than with a 45 from arguably our most prominent artist, Durand Jones & The Indications. This mix of “Power To The People” was the first new recording by the band after their self-titled album had been released. I distinctly remember hearing it for the first time and just feeling like we were hearing the next phase for the guys. I was behind the counter at Plaid Room, with my laptop plugged into the speakers so we could listen. There was no one in the store, just Bob and I. And when it finished playing Bob said, “Where can I pre-order?”
So what you’re hearing on this 45 is the original demo mix that was sent to us, with little to no reverb on Durand’s vocals, a marching band kick drum in the mix, and no synth. Something about the dry falsetto vocal of Durand’s voice made it feel like he was right in your ear. Such a special recording to all us. ….Terry Cole – Colemine Records

Oliver James

“One and only”/“But for the love” 

Label:  Colemine Records 
Catalog: CLMN-202
Release Date: 25th March 2022
Format:  7’

Oliver James is a time capsule. Raised in a family of musicians and a man who has been performing live since he was a child, Oliver comes to his love of soul music in a most honest and authentic way. Growing up listening to gospel, blues, and R&B from the classic early Stax era, his influences as a musician, songwriter, and producer are clear. After a stint working as a songwriter for Rick Hall, Mr. James is now set to start his own career. Producing, editing, mixing, and performing completely to tape, Oliver makes his mark with his debut single “One And Only” on Colemine Records.  Terry Cole
