Atlanta’s Jorel ‘JFly’ Flynn signs to i2 Recordings image

JFly signs to i2 Recordings

The deep south has a rich tradition of creating musicians of inordinate talent. And growing up in a small country town called Waycross in Georgia, Jorel JFly Flynn was no exception to this rule. Music runs deep in the family bloodlines and being the youngest of eight brothers, JFly was primed to follow in their musical footsteps. All seven older brothers played in the nearby church, as well as performing in live music clubs across the county. So being steeped in church music was JFly's foundation; a blessing with all the instruments he had access to. Just like being a kid in a candy store with a lifetime credit slip to the dentists, JFly explored and created music with no boundaries. With an ...

Le Velle

The i2 Music Group have signed a long-term recording agreement with Kansas based vocalist Le Velle. i2 Music Group chief Errol Michael Henry says: "Le Velle is a superbly talented singer/songwriter. He writes and produces great records and is an important addition to our rapidly growing roster of top-quality US based artist. We are honoured that he has chosen to take the next step in his career with us.” Bernard Hill (i2's A&R Executive for the USA/North American Division) adds: “I was immediately impressed with the music Le Velle sent me and once Errol heard the tunes, he was as enthused as I am about a great singer – and a really great guy too.” Le Velle is no newcomer to the music scene having ...

The Credit Card Never Lies – part 1 image

One of the great wonders of life is humankind’s ability to invent new ways to profit from old ideas. Mobile phones are a common sight these days and people can pretty much communicate with whomever they want to – whenever they want to. They pay a nominal fee to their phone provider for the privilege of access to a ‘network.’ Many years ago telegrams were how people moved information across vast distances. Before that, people delivered hand-written notes (we call it text messaging now) but the essential principle remains the same. Despite the constantly evolving technology, what people essentially do really hasn’t changed much through the ages. I hear cries of derision from people who are convinced that people didn’t ...

Black to The Future – part 2 image

i2 Music Group

Back in the dark ages, one ignorant, lazy, egotistical person (who was quite possibly racist, sexist, ageist and moronic too) could pretty much decide the fate of someone else’s’ career – thank the heavens those days are long gone. Much of the rapid growth in internet speed and efficiency was driven by the porn industry, yet despite its dubious heritage, internet speed has made the movement, creation, manipulation, marketing, sales and general monetisation of music more possible than at any time in history. While many people bemoan the death of the old establishment, I celebrate the endless possibilities that new technology affords us all. If black music acts of yester year were born in this age, all talk of ...

i2 Recordings Welcomes A2MG and Phillippia image

Phillippia Williams

i2 Recordings have signed a long-term agreement with A2MG for the services of Atlanta based songstress Phillippia. Legendary UK producer and i2 Recordings label boss Errol Michael Henry says: "When Bernard (i2's A&R Executive for the USA/North American Division) first sent me a recording of Phillippia I was just blown away. I get sent demos all of the time and very few give me any reason to stop what I am already doing. When I heard Phillippia's voice I immediately called Bernard and asked him to get her on the phone. I spoke to Phillippia and her husband Mac at some length and offered them a deal right there and then. I was already well down the road with producing the new Sound ...
