Rising Star: Emily Lovejoy

It is a rare feat to see an artist channel their emotions into painting in a short amount of time. This takes skill and passion that cannot be measured. In this case, the artist is Emily Lovejoy.

This recent graduate of the University of New Orleans is a force to be reckoned with. She uses her paintbrush to capture the audience at shows while DJs, bands and different hip-hop artists perform. Emily describes her unique style by simply by stating, “The process I use to create my recaptured images stems from the cognitive accumulation of tangible and intangible materials such as furry animals, baked goods, magazines, sex, lyrics, fashion and hip-hop and the graffiti lifestyle”.

Emily has worked with artists and events such as Voodoo Fest for G-Eazy, Lyriqs da Lyraciss who was featured in Where Y’at Magazine as a person to watch, the band AbPysch at House of Blues (Nola) and Uptown Getdown with DJ Quickie Mart x Tony Skratchere at Tipitina’s. Not to mention, she was chosen to represent New Orleans as RAW Visual Artist of 2013 for her contributions to The Big Easy’s music and art scenes.

Keep an eye out for Emily Lovejoy. She is an artist who’s talents you do not want to sleep on.

Track: Suave – Let Me Dream (prod. by Prospek)

A collaboration between long-time creative partners and label-mates Suave and Prospek, “Let Me Dream” is an ode to the perseverant spirit of artists and activists alike. Speaking from experience in both roles, Suave encourages those seeking to rise above their current circumstances to continue dreaming of a “brighter day” while live instrumentation from Prospek and friends, awakens in listeners an oft-latent desire for real music from real musicians.

Album: Harn SOLO – Perfect Picture

 

New Orleans rapper Harn SOLO drops his sixth album, Perfect Picture. Forming partnerships with producers Pro Prospek and CZA of Crescent Kingz, the trio’s  music reflects influences from the West Coast, the South and ’90s hip-hop, with Harn vacillating between a fast trip and slower melodic flow.  Having been lucky enough to earn myself a copy a while back, NHWWW was able to post an album review of Perfect Picture.  Harn SOLO gives all credit for this creative renaissance to his current home New Orleans, all while staying true to the sentimental sounds of the golden period of hip hop in the 90′s.   With Perfect Picture, SOLO reaches higher and experiments with rhyme configurations as well as appealing melodies, separating him from the average artist and his contemporaries.

Video: Harn SOLO – Stylin’

Harn SOLO takes in the culture at Venice Beach in Los Angeles, California for the latest Focus Cinema TV directed video, “Stylin”.  From the upcoming album Perfect Picture, the visual captures Harn SOLO performing while making his way through the famous beach side boardwalk, basketball courts and skate park.  “Stylin'” is scored by SOLO’s long time collaborator, 2010 NOLA Hip-Hop Award producer of the year Pro Prospek,

Album Review: Harn SOLO – Perfect Picture

Set for release on October 1st, Harn SOLO’s sixth studio album and second release of this year, Perfect Picture, is produced in its entirety by upcoming music talent Crescent Kingz.  Originally from the West Coast, now a New Orleans transplant and fixture, SOLO’s style has increasingly advanced into a nontraditional, ground breaking perfect picture.  The sounds provided by CZA of Crescent Kingz give SOLO a very unique canvas with an opportunity to paint his diverse range of vocals and song writing abilities.

The opening track “So Cold” displays a very unconventional vibe that will immediately let listeners know that they are in for something different with this release.  SOLO’s distinct voice and style stands out in the first single “The Future” which is co-produced by Pro Prospek, with whom SOLO collaborated with on his last release Journey To The Sky.

In an era where features are sometimes over abundant, SOLO chooses to call on help from fellow artists on only two of the ten tracks on Perfect Picture, allowing him shine on his own album.  “Star Gazing” includes a stand out verse from Lyiqs Da Lyraciss who displays some dope metaphors over the hard hitting boom bap backdrop.  The innovative hooks to each track are a testament to the progressive style that SOLO has adopted with his music.

Harn SOLO gives all credit for this creative renaissance to his current home New Orleans, all while staying true to the sentimental sounds of the golden period of hip hop in the 90’s.   With Perfect Picture, SOLO reaches higher and experiments with rhyme configurations as well as appealing melodies, separating him from the average artist and his contemporaries.

Video: Harn SOLO – The Future

New Orleans-based MC Harn SOLO heads West to San Diego, California for the latest Focus Cinema TV production, “The Future”. The song is the first single from Harn SOLO’s upcoming sixth studio album Perfect Picture due for a Fall release.  Abandoning his traditional boom-bap sound, Harn SOLO collaborates with fellow New Orleans talent Crescent Kingz for a new energized style of hip-hop.  The rebirth of Harn SOLO’s music direction also brings a lighter side to his character. The artist finds himself enjoying a day at the beach and carnival, as he candidly kicks rhymes by the ocean side.
