Each Month D'Nyce Picks An Album To Feature on her Soul’D’Out Show Wednesday Morning 1am - 3am

April’s Album Of The Month
Artist: India Arie
Album: Worthy
Rating 4/5

India Arie, a four-time Grammy winner with 21 nominations singer, songwriter, has blessed us with her 9th studio album. The album ‘Worthy’ has a strong musical, earthy, social, political message that will appeal to die-hard Arie fans. There’s no doubt on the impact that India Arie has had on the Neo/ Soul era, and she had made another with this infectious album. From the strong politically led ‘What If’ to the sexy ‘In Good Trouble” this album is worth every listen. India sings the clouds out the sky!

March’s Album Of The Month
Artist: Elisha La’Verne
Album: The Agenda EP
Rating 4/5
The latest offering from UK RnB singer, songwriter Elisha La’Verne is one for ‘grown folks’. 
With a recipe of R&B, sweet soulful sounds and a splash of reggae this five-track EP has satisfied my need for smooth laid back grooves. Standout tracks on this EP ‘Going The Distance ft Darien Dean’, ‘Catching Feelings’ and ‘Sugar’. Elisha spends her time between the UK and Japan were her 7th album 361 Degrees debuted at No.2 in the iTunes charts. With her 9th instalment in sight, this EP is a welcomed entree. 
February’s Album Of The Month
Artist: Summer Walker
Album: Clear EP
Rating 3.5/5

Talented newcomer, Summer Walker is Apple Music’s first ‘UP Next’ artist of 2019. The Up Next series identifies and elevates talented artists from all genres and over the past few years has been a major platform for showcasing contemporary R&B breakout artists.

Atlanta artist Summer will join fellow ‘Up Next’ artists such as Daniel Caesar, Khalid, 6lack and H.E.R.
‘Clear’ is only a four-track live EP, clearly not long enough but what you can hear is the promise of future greatness! The EP is neo-soul in its raw form with laid back rhythms and haunting vocals. There’s a reason why Ms Walker has been described as the love child of Jimi Hendrix and Amy Winehouse.
January’s Album Of The Month
Artist: Neo
Album: Saturn
Rating 3.5/5

Neo Jessica Joshua is a British singer-songwriter and producer hailing from east London. A once vocal student at the Guildhall School of Music, Nao has produced her second album ‘Saturn’. The album was supported by singles ‘Another Lifetime’, ‘Make It Out Alive’ and ‘If You Ever’. 

‘Saturn’ is a solid, honest offering covering love, lust and the challenges around these feelings. Nao is vocally unique, and so is this beautiful album. There are no obvious commercial hits, but in the hands of the industries more soulful DJs, some tracks will become popular within the new or neo-soul scene.
