LOS ANGELES CA – June 5, 2010 – BJP Entertainment and PapaLee Music proudly present SOULvival, the debut album from Sacramento-bred and currently Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and producer PapaLee. To celebrate the release of this much-anticipated cd, there will be a FREE concert at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in Los Angeles on Thursday June 24th at 7:00 pm. The concert is part of the BHCP Live Concert Series celebrating Black Music Month.

SOULvival is a masterpiece of soul/R&B ready to hit digital distribution outlets and independent terrestrial and internet radio on June 15th, 2010. SOULvival speaks with a polished blend of funk, hip-hop, rock, blues, even a little gospel, but above all else SOUL. “Beautiful” is the first single on a knockout debut album that has been described as a ” 30-minute comfort ride” from beginning to end.

PapaLee (aka William Hanford Lee Jr.) is a lifelong musician and singer who has been performing or producing music since the age of 12. His resume highlights include work with grammy-nominated artist Leona Lewis, and producer/mentor Brian Alexander Morgan (Usher, SWV, Mariah Carey), and collabs with international recording artist Terry Dexter. He has composed music for the Dodge Ram Challenge national campaign and web series as well as commercials for blockbusters such as “Terminator Salvation” and “Walk The Line”. His music has been featured in films like “The Taking Of Pelham 123″ and on TV programs such as “The Bernie Mac Show”.

The release of SOULvival coincides with the imminent birth of papaLee’s first child. “Becoming a father really shifts your attention toward things like your legacy and purpose – it can give you a razor sharp focus and clarity.”

With BJP Entertainment, SOULvival will have exceptional marketing support behind it as well. BJP Entertainment has been behind the career of superstar actress and comedienne Luenell (Borat, Katt Williams’ American Hustle) – who is also featured on the album. Additional tour dates to support SOULvival will be announced soon.

PapaLee Presents SOULvival

My debut album SOULvival is in the final stages of production. All of the songs are written – and several guest vocalists and musicians will be filing into the funklab and other studios all around the world to bless the project.

The demos have been described as “funky as hell” and “hot”, and I LOVE every song. Each song is a reflection of my truest emotions and life experience. At this point SOULvival is truly one of my proudest accomplishments in life.

I will be posting a music player with some of the demos VERY soon, and the album will be available for pre-order in the next few weeks. I am also beginning to look for investors and distributors, so contact me if you know someone or if you are interested.
