Tell us about yourself and your music
My partner Claire and I founded Rockinchair Productions 2020 earlier this year. Claire’s late husband, Jeff Soulman Brown, left us many original compositions that our group “SOUL DE LUNE” has recreated. We’ve assembled a group of legendary musicians who are former James Brown Band members (The J.B.’S) who are now known as “SOUL DE LUNE”. The core band members include our Musical Director, Ronald “Rock” Laster (Rhythm Guitar, Producer), Fred Thomas (Bass, Vocal Arrangements), Tony Cook, ( Drums ), Lisa Rushton ( Vocals ) & James “Keith” Jenkins ( Lead Guitar )
The genres include Funk, R & B, Soul, Gospel, and Hip Hop.
Talk to us more about your latest release
“SOUL DE LUNE” has recently released 5 songs. Our world premiere release is our video “LOOK AT THIS WORLD” which was created by our brilliant editor, ROY SCHNEIDER who has worked as an editor at Madison Square Garden for over 20 years.
Other releases include “DO YOU CARE”, “LET’S START ALL OVER, “ LA VIE EN ROSE” & “THAT’S LIFE”
All of the above can be found on YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music & other music stores.
What inspired you to write this release?
Our several releases were songs that were written many years ago. Our Band “SOUL DE LUNE” were the best musicians to bring the sound up to today’s 2020 experience.
We’ve been inspired by some of the world’s greatest icons such as The Godfather of Soul (JAMES BROWN), FRANK SINATRA, EDITH PIAF, AZNAVOUR, PRINCE, MICHAEL JACKSON and others.
