Friday, April 22nd - Caliban Arts Theatre Honors Luther Vandross!
With Vocalist Carlos Morgan & Band!


Carlos Morgan, a talented singer/songwriter/ producer based in Toronto, is poised to break on a global level. "Feelin' Alright", his debut album, is a collection of soothing love ballads and R&B club jams with a pinch of hip hop flavor. The album showcases the diversity of Morgan's singing style, from sultry and seductive ballads to more upbeat R&B, hip hop grooves.

Rhythm and Blues singer and songwriter, Luther Vandross came on the music scene in 1975, singing back-up for David Bowie, and co-writing his hit single, "Fame." Going on to sing back-up for several other popular singers, Vandross released his own album, "Never Too Much," in 1981, and it immediately went to the top of the R&B charts. Each of his next five albums sold more than a million copies, and Vandross won his first Grammy Award in 1990, for best R&B male vocal performance. He went on to record many more hit albums, and won several more Grammys.

Saturday, April 24th - Caliban Arts Theatre Honors Nina Simone! With Ania Soul & Band!


Ania Soul is a heartfelt singer/songwriter/performer and a fearless newcomer to the industry as a solo indie artist; as well she is taking on shows performing with her band the St.Royals showcasing originals and well known cover tunes done in Ania's way! She is a tried and true performer, ready to bring her brand of soul to the world and keeping all inspired as she writes and performs timeless songs.

Nina Simone was a classically trained pianist who became a famous nightclub singer, thanks to an early hit from 1958, "I Loves You Porgy." She famously interpreted and composed classical, jazz, pop, gospel, folk and blues songs of love and bitterness and had a worldwide following over a fifty-year career that earned her the nickname of "High Priestess of Soul." A poor black girl from the American south, she was enough of a musical prodigy that community patrons financially supported her musical education. She went to the Julliard School of Music in New York and earned a living as a pianist, accompanying singers and playing in nightclubs. She began singing in 1954, and audiences loved her deep voice, raw emotions and soulful interpretations of standards. Simone was a self-described diva of the temperamental genius variety, and she so detested racial injustice in the United States she lived abroad after 1974(in Barbados, Africa, Switzerland and, finally, France).

A surge of popularity during the 1990s created a new generation of fans. Her records made the jazz charts again and she was heard in TV commercials, movies and hip-hop samples. Some of her more well-known songs are: "My Baby Just Cares For Me," "I Put A Spell On You," "To Be Young, Gifted and Black," "See Line Woman," "Sinnerman" and "Mississippi Goddam."

VIDEOS & PIX: The JunoFest URBFresh Urban Music Showcase!



The 40th Anniversary of the Juno Awards took place in Toronto last month and for the first time ever, the week of music showcases leading up to the Junos known as JunoFest had an urban music component.

The legendary Hard Rock Cafe situated in the heart of downtown Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square, was the site for the inaugural two-night URBFresh Urban Music Showcase on March 25th and 26th.

Presented by UMAC, The Urban Music Association of Canada, The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) & The JUNO Award Urban Music Committees, the event showcased 2011 Juno nominees in Rap, Reggae and R&B Soul.

The crowd was treated to performances from: Karl Wolf; Eternia & MoSS; Silver (aka Solitair); Tony Anthony; D-Sisive; Elaine "Lil Bit" Shepherd; Tonya P; Ghettosocks; Lyndon John X and Quanteisha Benjamin.

URBFresh was hosted by the pioneers of the Canadian Hip Hop scene, Wes "Maestro" Williams and Michie Mee.

Thrilled to be a part of the event, Maestro expressed his feelings about the first ever urban music showcase during Juno Awards week. "I'm feeling good. It's a beautiful thing...making the opportunity to come out here is a beautiful thing because back in the day when we started, we never had stages like this. We never had urban artists...This is progress right here." Michie Mee chimed in "...we just never had this so I'm really excited and we're going to celebrate."
