NPR Music featured Ghost Funk Orchestra’s new studio album “A New Kind of Love” as part of their “New Music Friday: The Best Releases Out on Oct. 28, 2022, where John Morrison said the LP is “a really beautiful, fun and inventive way of flipping an old aesthetic that we know.” In addition, Robin Hilton added “I promise anyone who’s listening… have a dinner party and towards the later end of the party, put this record on. Everyone’s going to be asking you what it is. It’ll just have the perfect vibe.”

GA-20 IS FEATURED IN A 2-PAGE SPREAD IN GUITAR WORLD MAGAZINE!

 

Guitar World Magazine has a great two-page Tune-Ups feature on rising blues act GA-20 and their new LP Crackdown.

This Holiday 2022 issue of Guitar World hits stands on November 1, 2022. In the meantime, here’s a tease of the feature…

 

SAY SHE SHE KNOCKS IT OUT OF THE PARK ON THEIR RECENT KCRW APOGEE STUDIO SESSION!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been less than a year since the Brooklyn-based vocal trio of Piya Malik, Nya Gazelle Brown, and Sabrina Mileo Cunningham debuted as the soul-funk tour de force that is Say She She — and even more so considering that a chance encounter, courtesy of some thin apartment walls and late night vocal runs, brought the three pro singers together.

Their immediate chemistry led to late night writing sessions and subsequent jams with their most skilled musician friends (credits include Orgōne, The Dap-Kings, The Shacks, and Chicano Batman), resulting in one of the most funkily compelling debut singles in recent memory — February’s “Forget Me Not” b/w “Blow My Mind.”

Melding luxurious grooves, school-you melodies, skin-tight harmonies, and powerhouse songwriting, Say She She arrives on the scene as an artist fully formed; subsequent standalone singles and shows have served up explorations of funk, R&B, trip-hop, and discodelia, all steeped in their own future-forward je ne sais quoi.

Now, it’s album time. Ahead of Say She She’s debut LP “Prism,” out Oct. 7 via Karma Chief Records, the group joins us to celebrate with a knockout KCRW Live From session and interview. Lose yourself amidst the stratospheric high notes, show-stopping horn solos, and rhythmic abandon that the robust band brings to Bob Clearmountain’s legendary Apogee Studio. Malik, Brown, and Cunningham also join Morning Becomes Eclectic co-host Anthony Valadez for a candid conversation going deep on their commitment to activism, an abiding love for Chic’s Nile Rodgers, and the occasional upsides to apartment living.
