FEATURED ARTIST

Sir Charles Jones

Sir Charles Jones is an artist whose part-throwback, part-modern style of R&B is based on traditional Southern soul and blues. The vocalist, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist calls himself the Undisputed King of Southern Soul. He releases his music independently, outside the major-label system. Born in Ohio, raised in Alabama, and later based in Georgia, he received early support from Marvin Sease and began his recording career in 2000 with a self-titled album. Several of his full-length releases, including the debut, Love Machine (2002), and My Story (2008), have appeared on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Well into the latter half of the 2010s, he continued to record and remained a busy touring musician through small-scale gigs and soul and blues festivals alike. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

TK Soul

Louisiana-born Terence Kimble August, aka "T.K. Soul, went from school choir to church choir to playing with local bands before getting his break with a local group called Under 21, which changed it's name to Profyle. Soul was discovered by R & B group H-Town who hired him for keyboards.  Soul worked primarily on the road with he group before doing the same for fellow Southern Soul artist Willie Clayton. Soul even wrote two hits for Clayton ("Wiggle", "Party Like Back In The Day") before starting his own label, Soulful Records. After two Pop/R & B albums Soul scored a huge hit album called "Love Games" on the Chitlin' Circuit featuring the hit single "Cheating & Lying". Since then he's positioned himself as one of the stars of the genre. His latest CD, "Undisputed: The Album", is his most successful yet.

Cupid

In 2007, Bryson “Cupid” Bernard shuffled his way into the hearts of millions with the up-tempo party song “Cupid Shuffle,” which also inspired the popular dance craze of the same name. From appearances on nationally syndicated TV and radio talk shows such as Dr. Oz, Steve Harvey and Tom Joyner to breaking the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 for the largest line dance assembled with over 17k people, Cupid has virtually reshaped dance music and created an entirely new genre. When the Lafayette, LA native composed “Cupid Shuffle” he had no idea that the song or he would turn into a global entertainment phenomenon taking his talents to distant lands like Dubai and Germany. “It still amazes me that my music has resonated with so many different kinds of people,” says Cupid. “Music is truly a universal language because it unites individuals of different ages, cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs with a single purpose of having a good time, at least that’s my goal. I want to lift spirits and change the way people feel when they hear a Cupid record.” Given the culturally rich melting pot environment, Cupid was raised in, his sound is Blues-influenced, Rock-influenced, Soul-influenced, Gospel-influenced, and Hip-Hop-influenced. It’s no wonder his brand is able to effortlessly transcend racial and generational boundaries.
