In this month’s issue of Slo*Mo magazine:
Mo Audio — Slo*Mo Media’s podcast all about Atlanta’s soul music and culture scene — returns with a new, longer format … featuring an interview with special guest Tasha LaRae. Plus: We’ll be spinning tons of soul sounds straight outta the ATL (and beyond). Listen up!
Atlanta-based singer Tasha LaRae
If you catch a glimpse of — or take a listen to — singer Tasha LaRae, there’s a good chance you may recognize her as a member of the famed hip-hop crew Arrested Development or as a vocal contributor to noted producer DJ Kemit’s most recent album, “Together.” But it turns out those collaborations paved the way for a project of LaRae’s very own: her debut solo EP, “Light,” which dropped in March. On the new six-track collection of original material, the Atlanta-based Nebraska native (and the entrepreneur behind the “Racism Sucks” clothing line) presents lyrics that explore a range of human experiences, and music that’s dreamy and ethereal but still danceable. We recently sat down with LaRae to talk the science of going solo and to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Light.”
This issue of Atlanta’s soul music and culture magazine — aka Slo*Mo — throws the spotlight on rising indie singer/songwriter Kameron Corvet, chatting with him about creating music “by any means necessary.”
Plus: We’re giving some shine to a bevy of new music by some of the top soul artists in Atlanta (and beyond) — folks like St. Beauty, Tasha LaRae and more.
