Indie Soul Music: Ja'Vion and Von Shorter
Phinesse Demps | 5/15/2015, 6 a.m.
Summer is fast approaching and that means slow jams. The jams that are usually the key to a great summer! This week, Indie Soul shines the spotlight on two independent artists: Ja’Vion from Daytona Beach, Florida and Von Shorter from Las Vegas, Nevada who have some nice smooth joints for you to check out.
“Illusions of My Reality” by Ja’Vion McVadian: What’s impressive about this CD are the slow jams. The track “Daddy” is a song about his love for his father. There’s not too many songs about fathers and Ja’Vion delivers a classic. Check out the song “I Luv Makin Luv” and the absolute winner “Someone for Me,” which I believe is an absolutely beautiful wedding song and one of the best songs written by Ja’Vion. You can listen to snippets of this CD and purchase the entire CD or individual song by going to CDbaby.com.
Von Shorter: Von Shorter is a singer/rapper/songwriter/actor from College Park, Georgia. He emerged onto the scene in 2013 as an underground artist with IMDB Credits for the “Lyrics Of Life” web-series, several plays including “Where is the Love,” and “I Need Help” and extra background work for Black and Single TV.
His song “Unhappy” showcases his distinguished voice and it reminds me of Johnny Gill. The song is great because for a guy to talk about being unhappy in a relationship is really a joy to hear. Another track “Would You Be Happy” hits home for us fellas who just a woman to accept us for who we are. The track “Bloom” is one radio should be playing right now.
