Love this from beginning to end … “Untold Songs”  is a perfectly compiled release featuring all female vocalists who all sing their stories in different ways with music from various genres. Apart from good music you are supporting a good cause when you decide to cop this disc.

Big Up for Belle, the London based singer who selected all the songs for this album. She some how managed to make a perfectly smooth blend of songs and artists that might seem like a mismatch at first glance. If something seems vaguely familiar that might be cause she is not exactly a stranger to Strangefruitmusic since she was featured on the blog a while ago.

The compilation is being released in collaboration with Amnesty International and She Said 2 Much to raise awareness and money for Amnesty International’s “Stop Violence Against Women” campaign. Proceeds from the sale of this release will go straight to Amnesty International. Prior to this release a free download with remixes was provided and you can download that here

Strangefruitmusic is allerting you on another release to be on the look out for in 2011. Jamie Woon is currently working on his album which is expected to be drop in the spring of 2011. The only thing we have to go on at the moment is the first single “Night Air”. A beautiful track with remarkable lyrics supported by Jamie Woon’s signature haunting sound which can be downloaded from iTunes. If “Night Air” is any indication of what to expect… 2011 just might be a big year for this artist.

There is a lot I could say about Celine Cairo but in her case it is best to let the music do most of the talking. Her selftitled EP is available on iTunes.

If you ever get a chance to be at A Revolution B Minor my advice would be to take it. Because everything is basically unplugged and intimate it does take a certain mindset to get into the flow of things but once you are really there…you might just make a wonderful discovery.

In my case the aforementioned would apply to Karima Francis.  Her debut release The author has been available on iTunes since March of 2009 but nothing compares to the experience of one her performances. She is still in her early twenties but her vocals are definitely not. Anyways you can stream one of her songs below and get a taste of what A Revolution in B Minor was like.
