It's been a while, but we've been keeping busy working on our
cover of the Sun Ra classic "Love In Outer Space". It's coming
along well, and we think you guys are really going to like it.
Meanwhile, I've had one of my solo jazz/funk tracks, "Soiree
Lamma" released on a compilation album called "Electric Underground
Vol. 10". If you interested in checking it out, it's now available
on iTunes at the link below.

Presents: Electric Underground, Vol. 10
Hopefully I'll be notifying you shortly about the release of
"Love In Outer Space"!

Hope this finds everyone doing well, and settling into the
swing of Autumn. I'm not even really sure where September went at
this point! Just wanted to post a quick update letting everyone
know what we've been up to lately. Firstly, we're in the thick now
of recording "Love In Outer Space" the Sun Ra cover that some of
you who have seen us live recently may have heard. We did a first
pass of vocals last night, and things are coming together pretty
quickly. I'm also finalizing a couple remixes for "Firefly" and
"Walk With Me" that I hope to have out in short order. Also, just
in case that wasn't enough, I've started contributing to a great
music blog called Boom Boom Chik (
It's a very active blog, so drop by once in a while. There's always
tons of new material to listen to.
That's it for now. Enjoy the weather, and stay posted for the
upcoming Sun Ra track and remixes!

Hello Party People, and Happy August!
We've been having a hot one here in the Northeastern U.S.!
Makes for a great excuse to kick back during the evening, sip an
icy cocktail and listen to some soulful, laid back grooves. Now I
wonder where I could fine some of those?
We have a few exciting things going on this month and just
wanted to send out a short note to keep everyone up to date on what
Nicole and I have in store. Firstly, the album has been getting
some nice exposure via podcasts and music blogs, so we'd like to
greatly thank all those who've taken the time to listen to, review,
and share our music with others! We even found a soul music podcast
in China that played "Chocolate Cake" in one of their recent shows.
Still waiting for a translation on what the DJ actually said about
us! Fingers crossed that it was positive!
We have two live performances this month which we'd love to
see you at. The first is our long overdue Record Release Party.
This will be held on August 21st at Wallspace in Kingston, NY.
We'll be performing a live set of music from the album and Hudson
Valley super DJs Ease and Wavy Davy will be filling out the night
with a blend of acid jazz, soul, house, deep funk, and reggae
classics. Wallspace is a very chic art gallery style space with a
beautiful bar in historic uptown Kingston. Free copy of cd with
each $10 cover! Don't miss this great night!
For those down in the NYC area we'll also be doing a short
set on Wednesday, August 25th, at People Lounge (163 Allen St.) on
the Lower East Side. People Lounge is another cool, intimate space
and this night, hosted by local singer Shelita Vaughns, is a very
cool hang. Our set should be starting around 7:30 PM. Please
mention that you came to see Belle Boussole [bell boo-soul] at the
Thanks to everyone who has purchased the album. We've had
sales in all parts of the US as well as Australia, China, Japan,
Hong Kong, England, Denmark, and Germany. If you haven't had a
chance to grab your copy yet, check out the links on our 'Buy' tab

all at a show soon!

We had a fantastic weekend in Newburyport, MA. We went up on
Saturday to perform as part of the Tannery Series event "Are You
Cool?" which also featured author/poet Major Jackson (
and author Peter Guralnick (
Both were really incredible and entertaining to listen to. Major
had written previously about the avant-garde jazz musician Sun Ra,
so we did a "Belle Boussole-ized" version of Sun Ra's "Love In
Outer" space at the event. The tune went over so well, that we're
considering recording it!!! Thanks to everyone who came out. It was
wonderful to see some familiar faces, and to meet a bunch of new
