Press Release :
PTR/Public Transit Recordings (PTR) is proud to release with the long awaited debut full-length album from Voice called Gumbo. Reconnecting with her New Orleans roots "Gumbo" represents the many facets of this talented emcee.
Early 2006 has been one busy time for Voice, her razor sharp delivery is featured on the new Visioneers LP Produced by Marc Mac - 4hero (BBE Records). She's also featured on new Zero DB LP (Ninja Tune) kicking it on a jazzy vibe. On Gumbo, Voice displays her lyrical versatility rocking her impeccable flow over 15 tracks produced underground beatmakers Marc Mac (4hero), Moonstarr, Murr, Arch Typ.
Growing up the daughter of a classically trained jazz singer and an actor, it seemed inevitable for Voice to express herself through art and music. Voice gravitated towards her love of Hip Hop culture at an early age, studying the pioneers like Public Enemy, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, The Pharcyde, Eric B. & Rakim, MC Lyte, KRS-ONE and many more blasted beats and consciousness that crept into her headphones through the years. Inspired by them and more recent movers like Bahamadia, Big L, Aceyalone and Medusa, Voice strives to channel the passion, commentary, innovation and delivery that made them great into her own style and flow on the mic.
Voice's combination of conscious lyrics and classic beats will make her a force to be reckoned with. This woman has flow, style, and wit for days. Gumbo takes the listener on a journey, from hip hop to nu jazz and all points in between, not an easy feat for any emcee, but Voice's effortless delivery meld perfectly with the infectious beats that will be ready to bring any party some serious HEAT!!
Voice's conscious words are mixed in to induce emotions guaranteed to get your headnodding. This New Orleans based emcee has boundless energy and enthusiasm for Hip Hop; and this is only the beginning!
