Jamila Ford Performs This Saturday at Vroman’s Make Music Pasadena Stage

Award-winning soul singer Jamila Ford will be performing this Saturday, June 18 at the Vroman’s Jazz Stage as part of the Make Music Pasadena festival!

From her website:

“Ford has always had a knack for pinpointing emotions that well from her personal experiences – the struggle for self realization, the search for inner strength and independence, the joy of love, the pain and confusion of rejection, and the acceptance of all of our imperfections. Ford has found her voice again. She has channeled her struggles into a bluesy, folksy, and funky song cycle, reminiscent of the work of Norah Jones, Nikka Costa, and Tracy Chapman.”

Stop by the Vroman’s Jazz Stage at 4 pm to catch Jamila’s performance! For more information about Jamila Ford, visit her website by clicking here. To listen to samples of her music, click here to visit her Myspace page.

Ben L’Oncle Soul – This Saturday at Make Music Pasadena!

This Saturday, June 18, neo-soul singer Ben L’Oncle Soul will play his first U.S. show at the Luckman World Music Stage at Make Music Pasadena. From The Windish Agency’s website:

“Ben’s groove is undeniably American, in terms of respecting the standards of the Motown genre, in that it remains soul music with a distinct pop influence (in Elle Me Dit, and Demain J’Arrête), but without any attempt to behave. At liberty to, the Soul Uncle additionally covers the old bow-tied crooners’ range on Mon Amour, and the funky R&B of Stevie Wonder on I Don’t Wanna Waste on his flourishing collection of 60s standards written in 2010. As we know that Motown Records’ nickname in the 60s was The Hit Factory, no doubt remains: Ben L’Oncle Soul really couldn’t escape his fate.”

See Ben L’Oncle Soul at 4 pm at the Luckman World Music Stage during Make Music Pasadena this Saturday, June 18! To listen to samples of his music, visit his Myspace page by clicking here.
