HomeBase Poetry: Paris Toon who’s already a familiar name here sent me this wicked poetry album over for airplay a little while back, which features work from one of the largest open mics in the US, right in the heart of Phoenix the oasis in the desert. What they do on a Sunday nights is quick becoming legendary and the evidence is in the listening.
Tracks from the album have already been getting support here on the Meltdown show with plenty of highlights to choose from including a version of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” the dope “Mis Educated” from Real Talk and this contemporary twist on Gil Scott Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”.

IAm Jones is the first artist of his kind. First and foremost, he is defined as an Entertainer and not just a vocalist, not just a dancer and poet. He is the beginning of a new generation of solo artists that hip hip and neo-soul is missing today. As a writer of all original music and lyrics, IAm stands out from the rest in many ways. Musically, lyrically, and vocally there is no artist that IAm can be directly compared to. This seriously hot new joint entitled “She” features Mothers Favourite Child who’s also a big favourite here too! Pick up your copy of “SHE” HERE
