Mark Morrison was the most successful British R&B singer of the mid-90s. His breakthrough single, RETURN OF THE MACK became a Top Ten hit worldwide in 1996, and opened the US market for him the following year. Although he became a commercial success overnight, his career was plagued by run-ins with the law that prevented him from consolidating his position as a superstar.
Born in Hanover, Germany, to Barbadian parentage, Morrison lived in Leicester, before moving to Florida, US, at a young age, where he discovered his love for music.
In mid 1995 he released his debut single CRAZY, which became a Top-20 hit in the UK, and LET’S GET DOWN, the swing beat summer jam, entering the Top-40. They were followed in the spring of 1996 by the aforementioned RETURN OF THE MACK, which became a smash hit worldwide, spending two weeks at number one in the UK charts. Morrison became the first black male solo artist to reach number one in the 90s.
His debut album, also titled RETURN OF THE MACK followed, and became a multi-platinum success. It reached number four in the UK chart, and sold 3 million albums worldwide. It spun off several more hit singles over the next year. CRAZY (RE-MIX), TRIPPIN, HORNY and MOAN & GROAN would all reach the UK Top-10, making him the first artist in British pop history to have five Top-10s from their debut album.
Although his career was going well, Morrison was constantly in trouble with the law. In 1997 he was imprisoned, the same year (coincidently) he received four Brit nominations, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, an MTV Europe award nomination and 5 MOBO nominations (including winning best R&B), as RETURN OF THE MACK began to climb its way to number two on the American Billboard charts receiving platinum status en-route. It stayed on the Billboard charts for an incredible 25 weeks.
Mark’s post-prison release WHO’S THE MACK?, also hit the Top-20 in September 1997, and another single entered the Top-40 in 1999, BEST FRIEND, which saw Mark team up with UK soul queen Gabrielle and soul star Connor Reeves.
In 2006, Morrison made a return with an independent album INNOCENT MAN. It featured collaborations with industry heavyweights DMX, Elephant Man, and Alexander O’Neal. The single INNOCENT MAN featuring DMX, also appeared in sample form on INNOCENT (MISUNDERSTOOD) by Cassidy, which reached 3 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart in November 2007.
The long-awaited return of the King of UK R&B is here, with the eagerly anticipated new EP entitled I AM WHAT I AM available now, and a worldwide tour scheduled this fall.

Today marks the release of “Braindead”, the first video off of Jarell Perry’s highly anticipated new EP, White. The artfully seductive visual continues to solidify Jarell as not only a leader in the nu-soul movement, but also as a major creative force to be reckoned with in 2014.
Jarell Perry will be releasing his new EP, White, later this month on all digital formats. While the record puts Jarell’s artistic diversity on full display, his signature chillwave sound and vocal range leave no doubt that he is the same artist that won over an international following with his last release, Simple Things. This latest EP was entirely produced by Jarell’s constant collaborator DJ HSVN, and the creative chemistry from so many hours spent in the studio together is evident and something special to behold.
Jarell Perry recently wrapped a winter tour with Yuna, during which his opening set won over every crowd he performed in front of. The word quickly got out regarding Jarell’s prowess as a live performer, and after only a few dates the entire sell-out crowd at each stop were there at doors to make sure they didn’t miss a second of his set. Jarell will be at SXSW, and his appearance is already among the most anticipated of the festival. From there 2014 will only get bigger for the artist as he has multiple releases planned for the year.
Jarell Perry has the talent and charisma to be one of the seminal acts of this new generation of artists carrying the torch of Soul and R&B. Stay tuned for more information on Jarell as we approach the release of White.

Come. Dance. Freak. Body and soul will groove to the innovative and energetic sound of Madame Freak & The Funky Fever. The unconventional but musically talented group consists of powerhouse jazz/soul singer Jessi Teich and an eclectic jazz/indie group from Europe. The band formed after a chance meeting in a medieval era practice studio set two floors underground in the middle of Paris. The result is funky, soulful, sexy, and straight up dance music. Their highly anticipated debut album was released on July 19, 2013 and the band is now touring the East Coast. Madame Freak and The Funky Fever are excited to share this new and fresh take on live dance music with the world. Review: “I’ve produced and remixed some of the biggest acts in music over the last 15 years and it’s rare that I get excited over a new breakout act. However, Madame Freak & The Funky Fever bring some amazingly cool, inno vative and unique elements to the table that are sure to turn heads and keep the listener thoroughly entertained!” ~ Steve “Mr. Mig” Migliore, Multi-Platinum Producer/Remixer For more information contact: Jefferson Green Madame Freak RecordsLLC firstname.lastname@example.org 215-866-6910
