Artist Spotlight: @SILVERSPOONBRUN / "Ladies First" THE ALBUM



Quick Bio:

28 year old rapper and platinum songwriter Silver Spoon Brun, formerly known as Young Bruno started off on a very different career path than most up-and-coming hip-hop MCs.
Nephew to Grammy Award winning producer Corey Rooney, Brun started his music career behind the scenes working with some of the biggest artists in the history of music as a teenager. The Queens native who hails from Baisely projects has penned records for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Toni & Tamar Braxton, Christina Milian, and Mariah Carey just to name a few.

After some years of working as a songwriter and producer, Silver Spoon Brun began readying his own project in order to step outside the shadow of his family's musical empire. He started his own label called Well Written Music with partner and friend E3, also a songwriter. In 2011 he dropped his first mixtape appropriately titled "Life After Rooney" signifying his departure from working with his Uncle. The project was well received and was a true blend of his hip-hop beginnings and R&B influences, but due to the death of his father shortly after the release his creative focus was stunted.

Re-emerging after a few months back in the studio Brun was ready for something completely new. He started prepping his new project "Ladies 1st" as an ode to all females everywhere with still enough backbone for the men to relate to. The project features production from Jahlil Beats, Shatek, and partner E3. It also features artists Tamar Braxton as well as Queens MCs Nyemiah Supreme and Young Pretty.

Now lets get to the music

Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith (cover by @MattBloyd)

When ya new favorite voice covers one of ya favorite voices!!!! Thats exactly what happened when Matt Bloyd chose to cover Sam Smith's new song "Too Good At Goodbyes" it feels a lot warmer then the original that haunts us when Sam sings it. We love how Matt put his own  twist on it and showed off that killer range that made us a fan from the  first day we heard him. Here is what Matt had to say about choosing the cover I am a huge fan of Sam Smith's voice and his artistry. After a two year hiatus, Sam is back with "Too Good at Goodbyes" and I could not be more excited. He's truly an inspiration. When I heard this song I KNEW I had to cover it and got right on it. Hope you love my take on this JAM.

Artist to look out for: Jasmyne Hinson

The “entertainer bug” bit Jasmyne at the age of 2 when she sang her first solo in church. A couple years later, she was enrolled in performing arts school where the seed of her stage presence was planted. At the age of 15 the cultivation of her studio experience began at PARC studios with her first manager Dexter Redding, the son of the late Otis Redding. Throughout her high school years Jasmyne began to work with a diverse group of producers, engineers and writers. Honing in on her niche as an artist, most of her free time was spent in the studio. While adapting to their styles of working she added to her work ethic and accuracy in the studio. Upon graduating from high school she spent her undergraduate years as a Theater major learning and exploring the worlds of jazz and musical theatre. She then began singing professionally with a myriad of artists, bands and musicians. It was quite clear that Jasmyne Hinson is much more than a session singer or just a staple in the choir stand.
