SR.Gent - Long Road Album


Lester R. Smith (also known as SR.Gent) is an enthusiastic Entrepreneur, Artist, Songwriter, and proud Dad who dwells in Atlanta, Georgia. His unwavering love for music started early on. The unfortunate loss of his mom at age six, among various other youth adversities, led SR.Gent down a path of development for not only himself but his family too. He made a promise to strive to get an improved life day-to-day, which can be a guarantee he keeps to today. Nevertheless, he continues to be writing poetry because of the youthful age of thirteen, making the transition to the domain of music almost seamless. SR.Gent is well known for his depth of words, electrifying delivery, and one of a kind, attention-capturing tunes. While handling a record label and being a full-time dad are of primary focus, SR.Gent also attends the esteemed Berklee College of Music.



SR.Gent’s 2nd studio album “Long Road” is the follow up to his debut album “Canorous Camisado”, featuring a set of 14 tracks that embrace different influences accompanied with his special brand of energy and punch. The golden age of hip-hop can be found at the core of the artist’s vision, echoing the work of legendary artists the likes of Outkast, Eminem and 2Pac, just to mention a few.
The tracks on the album shed some light onto the insights, life stories and experiences of the artist, going for an incredibly personal and relatable feel.

Freeky's Latest Singles

A Fusion of "Freeky" Flavors Hits the U.S.A.
Freeky’s new singles, “Icecream Man,” and “Take My Breath Away,” showcase his reggae-based blend of soul, pop, hip-hop, and dancehall.
A sweeping triumph and bound to cross over into the mainstream airwaves.
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, APRIL 20th, 2018 - The U.S.A. is about to get a taste of two tantalizing tracks from rising South African reggae and pop artist Olihile Afrika better known as “Freeky.” His two latest singles are “You Take My Breath Away” and “Icecream Man.” The songs showcase Olihile’s inherent ability to blend soul, hip-hop, and dancehall into a reggae-based style with crossover appeal. One could call these tunes a fusion of “Freeky” flavors.
You Take My Breath Away” and “Icecream Man” are the first two songs to release fromFreeky’s upcoming sophomore album release. The new project is a follow-up to his successful 2015 full-length Love Stories offering. Freeky explains the two self-penned compositions, “As always, I leave room for the listener to interpret my compositions. I want to tap into the listener's circumstance at the time.
Freeky’s latest offerings stem from a musical development that began in early childhood and the many years he’s spent working within a multitude of genres. In 2006, as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Freeky joined the legendary band Ntjapedi. Along the way, Freeky has performed with such A-List African acts as Salif Keita and Bongo Riot as well as recorded with the likes ofSizzla and Leftside
The uplifting, pop and reggae-infused ballad, “You Take My Breath Away,” has been well received by both radio and critics in South Africa - as well as in the U.K.- where it's called, “... no ordinary reggae song,” by Niche Records. The second offering, “Icecream Man,” with its upbeat, hip-hop and funky feel gives insight into how Freeky’s songwriting skill set can instantly morph into a new musical mode.
Since 2007 Freeky has spent almost a decade honing his solo career and pushing the creative envelope of his reggae style. Now in 2018, along with the help of his indie label, Dreaded Sounds a whole new side of the world is about to taste the “Freeky,” funky flavors of “Icecream Man” and “You Take My Breath Away.”

Laice - Monster ft Olivia Cella







Boston, MA (May 25th, 2018) - LAICE has released a confident new single, “Monster”. The song, which follows on the heels of her debut single “Independence” and features YouTube sensation Olivia Cella, is an impassioned reclamation of time and energy wasted on a relationship that has gone south. 16-year-old Laice’s self-assured vocal is immediately striking as she flits between graceful runs and chopped vocal hooks, while a rippling mid-tempo track grooves along in the background. “Monster” not only showcases Laice’s versatility as a singer, but also paints a picture of Laice’s departure from a toxic relationship, relaying an inspiring message for young girls.




“This song is about having confidence in yourself,” says Laice. “I wrote ‘Monster’ to help me overcome the feeling of leaving behind a really bad relationship where I was constantly getting hurt, and to encourage other girls to know their worth and stand up for themselves when they are mistreated.”

Raised in Massachusetts, the young artist and songwriter delivers R&B-tinged-Pop music with power and nuance well beyond her years. Laice joins forces on her sophomore single with producer @GrammyDavisJr, whose airy dancehall-infused track complements the force behind Laice’s dynamic delivery. “Monster” simultaneously shows off the strength of Laice’s vocal range and melodic sensibility and reflects the personal strength she imbues into her music in the hopes of positively influencing young women.


From an even younger age, Laice has set out to follow in the footsteps of her female role models in the music world. With her second single, she is well on her way, drawing inspiration from vocal powerhouses like BeyoncĂ© and Sia and crafting songs with soaring hooks that would fit Rihanna. “Monster” is just a glimmer of what the future has in store for this young talent, with more music on the way later this year.
