PapaLee LIVE! At Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza

Catch a musical breath of fresh air this Thursday June 24th at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in the Sears court. I will be celebrating the release of my debut album SOULvival with a FREE concert featuring original music and an incredible live band!

Don’t miss this encore performance as part of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Summer Concert Series! The show back in January was off-the-hook. The BHCP Live Concert Series features some of LA’s hottest local talent and is a joyous celebration of Black Music Month. Come on out, let the music move you, pick up a CD and enjoy some positive musical vibrations.

PapaLee features Stevo Théard on drums, Michael Kennedy on bass, Dan Formica on guitar and Hornlicious (Bijon Watson and Louis Van Taylor). Also featured will be amazing vocalist Angela Songbird. Angela is “next up” on the BJP Entertainment imprint but will be providing background vocals on Thursday. You can miss it “if you want to”, but I wouldn’t suggest it.

See you there!

Glowing review for SOULvival

papaLee shows off a Louisiana-style soulful flair with “Lovin Man.” Warning: Ladies this will make you unbutton the top three buttons of your blouse. Lip-gloss will drip. – Kleopatra Girl

Kleopatra Girl is feeling the album. Check out her whole Ringside Report on the EURweb here.

So far the response from listeners has been fantastic! I think that some amazing things are already happening because of SOULvival. I’m trying to put my team together to REALLY push the record, so please reach out if you are interested in helping to make SOULvival a great success!
