Steve Cole, Selina Albright

Selina Albright - With a last name associated with musical excellence, Selina Albright is a soulful singer-songwriter with versatility that comes from years of listening to many origins and languages of music. Her angelic tone adds character and emotion to any ballad, yet her powerful wailing and energetic stage presence commands attention.

Albright developed her onstage charisma and vocal technique from being exposed to legendary artists, such as Whitney Houston, Take Six, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Beyonce, Lalah Hathaway, and Tina Turner. Her intimate, connective writing style comes from experiences and aspirations from her own life, so that when you listen to her music, you are introduced to a private piece of who Albright is, has been, or is becoming.

Selina Albright’s R&B/Soul 2013 release entitled "Brighter" topped the UK Soul Chart for four weeks, and her sassy 2010 Jazz original "You and I," was featured on iTunes' "Top 100 Downloads" list for the genre of Jazz in 2010! Her most recent release “Sun Comes Up” (2016) has outperformed all previous releases, and her new full-length R&B project entitled "Conversations" released on March 17, 2017!

Selina Albright has graced the stage the world over with many artists, such as pianists Jeff Lorber, George Duke, Joe Sample, Brian Simpson, Brian Culbertson, Keiko Matsui, and David Benoit; guitarists Peter White, Nick Colionne, Norman Brown, Jonathan Butler, Jeff Golub, David P. Stevens, JJ Sansaverino, Adam Hawley, and Matt Marshak; bassists Marcus Miller and Gerald Veasley; saxophonists Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, David Sanborn, Kirk Whalum, Steve Cole, Boney James, Jeff Kashiwa, Richard Elliot, Marion Meadows, Gianni Vancini, Eric Darius, Jackiem Joyner, and Candy Dulfer; trumpeters Hugh Masakela, Rick Braun and Patches Stewart; vocalists Chaka Khan, Will Downing, Eric Roberson, Regina Belle, Algebra Blessett, Tony Momrelle, and The Temptations; and bands Pieces of a Dream and Four80East.

Steve Cole

Saxophonist Steve Cole is one of the most celebrated players in contemporary jazz.

The Chicago native exploded onto the scene in 1998 with the album “Stay Awhile” that was produced by fellow Chicagoan Brian Culbertson. The disc scored two #1 hits and earned Cole the Oasis Smooth Jazz Award for best new artist shortly before his sophomore set, “Between Us,” was released in 2000. His catchy singles made him an instant radio favorite and he cranked them out with regularity on subsequent albums “NY LA” (2003), “Spin” (2005, “True” (2006), "Moonlight" (2009), and "True" (2013).

In addition to his work as solo artist, Steve has performed/recorded, with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Boz Scaggs, Larry Carlton, Jeff Lorber, Jim Peterik, Freddie Cole, Cyrus Chestnut, and KMFDM, and has been a featured soloist with the City of Prague Orchestra, and The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Steve is also a founding member of The Sax Pack, a stellar sax trio completed by Marcus Anderson and Jeff Kashiwa.

Known for consistently cranking out chart-topping singles that deploy big vibrant pop hooks, contemporary jazz saxophonist Steve Cole conjures a sonic escapade with the hypnotic “Mirage,” the first single from his forthcoming eighth album, “Turn It Up,” which will be released July 15 by Artistry Music. Radio programmers were instantly spellbound, making the track from the David Mann-produced set of R&B grooves and soul-powered sojourns the No. 1 most added single on the Billboard BDS chart.
