Jo Oliver is an independent Soul-Rock artist with many years of musical experience and the ability to write catchy melodies and combining them with rock hard hooks and thundering rhythms. The US portal ranker.com put him on the list of “Best Soul Rock Artists/Bands”. Jo has spent many years working for other artists and publishers as a composer, songwriter, arranger, studio musician, producer, and sound engineer. This garnered him chart placements and collaborations with people like Keith Tynes (Platters) and Richard Palmer-James (Supertramp), among others.

 In his debut solo release “Shine On (You)” he sings and plays all the instruments, as well as did all the arranging, music producing, mixing and mastering himself. Jo also hit the Top 1 spot on the Amazon Germany Download-Charts in the Soul category, even though he is more Soul-Rock orientated.

In order to appreciate “Shine On (You)”, you have to be able to misplace your snob instincts for four or so minutes. Jo Oliver isn’t here to bury modern music, but to praise it, or at least to place it in the greater continuum of rock and soul. Obviously, proudly traditionalist musically, Oliver is also a progressive forward-thinker.

This is a track that will remind rock and soul fans of its musical heritage in a familiar, non-threatening way, and suggests that the musical future, with all its electronics and technology, doesn’t have to be a scary, unknowable entity, as Jo makes it all look like a slickly repackaged version of the past.

Showing an impressive aptitude for soulful rock-writing, “Shine On (You)” is filled with thundering rhythms, crunchy hard-nosed guitars, sweet harmonies, resonant vocals and soaring choruses. With the combination of enticing vocal deliveries and groovy instrumentals throughout, this is unquestionably a joyous track which is constantly eager to please.

amanie illfated is a South Sudanese born, Toronto based indie fusion singer, model and writer who mixes dynamic lyrics with an eclectic, often ethnic, sound and has been nominated for 2 awards. She was born in what is now known as South Sudan and immigrated to Regina, Saskatchewan with her family as refugees in 1992. At the age of 16, she left her family to pursue music in Toronto, Ontario and has since collaborated with numerous artists including Nathan Bishop (Uptown Underground Records) LK Collective, Emmanuel Jal and Kikijiko as well as Feeling the One Drop: a local reggae band that she has worked and performed with. She has also performed with the Nigerian pop duo, PSquare, and the Calypso inspired, Kobo Town.

Her music has been played on radio in Canada, the US and the UK. Her self titled (November 2015), is a candid expression of amanie illfated’s paradox-like nature, high fashion styling, metaphoric lyrics, her diary-like motif and her clear-toned, youthful voice.
The first official single and music video, ‘letter to myself’, is a cross between pop, hip hop, rock and contemporary orchestration, and opens with the impactful statement: “I-I am damaged goods.”
Singles ‘ultimate candy’ and a collaboration called ‘You & Me’ with international artist Yaba Angelosi (Assida Records) are in circulation.
She is currently working on a new EP called ‘SATURN’ that is set to be released in 2019.
