Please note space for this private event is limited, so we ask that you RSVP before Friday, 5/25/12 (event details will follow your RSVP). See you on the 1st!
More About the Artist: Anu is a Soulful Hip Hop artist who has carved a niche in New York’s music thru support performances for Amel Laurrieux (Groove Theory), Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest), Dwele,Talib Kweli, Kid Cudi & Raheem DeVaughn. Recent projects include collaborations with Blue Note Jazz pianist Robert Glasper & UK Neo-Soul pioneer Omar Lye-Fook. In 2006, Anu’s music video “Soul Brotha” was included in BETJ’s (now Centric) “Top 50 videos of The Year.” The artist was also featured on the network's programs “The J List” & “Chronicles of the Underground.”
In his latest release “The Adventures of Mr. Las Vegas” (the artist sophomore release) Anu portrays himself as a Vegas showman ready to strut his stuff. The soulful hip-hop offering is infused with a pop twist that renders itself to Maxwell (if he did more hip-hop tunes). The project is a chic, adult contemporary vibe reminiscent of that of The Brand New Heavies or Amel Larrieux.
NOW.... Here’s the part where we ask you to gamble and try something new! Trust me, we're worth it! LOL!! But seriously, aside from hearing some AWESOME music, you’ll get a chance to know Anu personally. Find out what roles Lionel Hampton, Wayne Newton and Delfeayo Marsalis play in Anu’s personal life and how those relationshipshelped shape the tone, texture and approach of Anu's music.
Following the event photo ops and interviews are welcomed (all advance requests should be forwarded to Tanj at AnuSun.Contact@gmail.com). We look forward to your vibrant energy and the opportunity to introduce you to this fabulous talent!!! Take care & see you June 1st
