Info + Links
Blessed with a unique vocal tone that has the ability to cut through the cold and embed itself in the listener’s soul, Sarsha Simone is an exciting artist who is bringing a fresh and yet timeless take on music. The striking chantueuse’s most recent collaboration with French producer’s 20syl & Moar on “Gonna Do Me (20syl Remix)” has had close to 300,000 plays on SoundCloud since it’s release a few months ago. Sarsha has also been featured on Acclaim Magazine, Earmilk, BLACK Magazine, Grazia Italy, Hypetrak and more thanks to her soulful vocals and striking looks. Her solo single “Let’s Dance”, (prod. Marley Cassette) debuted on The Edge 96.1 last month, before being selected by Apple Music for an exclusive position on their The A-List: R&B playlist highlighting the hottest R&B of the moment. The most exciting part of all this is that it is just the beginning for Sarsha Simone as she gets ready to deliver her Vaughan meets West style and sound to the world.

D’ANGELO, COMMON TO SPEARHEAD NEW NEO-SOUL FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA
14 March, 2014
D’Angelo, Common, Aloe Blacc and Mos Def are rumoured to be part of a new neo-soul festival bill that will tour Australia’s east coast this October.
Un-verified artwork of a festival called SoulFest appeared on soul singerAnthony Hamilton’s Facebook yesterday, before being swiftly removed. According to the artwork – which theMusic.com.au understands may be out of date – Maxwell was also listed as a headliner with Angie Stone, Musiq Soulchild and Leela James.
While the festival has no online presence yet a number of questions have been raised by fans excited at the prospect of the tour, which according to the un-verified artwork has dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
We just found this online at themusic.com.au regarding the SOULFEST flyer that was posted last night, still not sure if it is going ahead but we will keen an ear to the ground and keep everyone updated
Australias first Neo-Soul, Jazz & Hip Hop Festival

We are very excited to announce this amazing new festival concept happening in October and Soul of Sydney have been asked to DJ.
