More about Stephanie Cooke

Stephanie Cooke is a singer/ songwriter whose roots are based in urban Newark, NJ. Born and raised there, she grew up in church like many in the music industry, and found her beginnings in the choir and in small groups as she developed her singing and arranging skills, She wrote her first song under pressure to impress a would be14672866_657361394426678_77771437_o manager who told her that only artists who could write these days would be successful. that song got recognition at ASCAP and was featured at a songwriter´s workshop where it received rave reviews. This was stepping-stone in her career as all the publishers at the workshop became interested in hearing what she had to offer. Less than one year later she was writing, arranging and doing background vocals on many major projects and being called upon many labels to offer songs.

Within eighteen months, she was flaunting a publishing deal that lead to her relationship with producers such as Jermaine Dupri, Soul Shock and Carlin, All-Star, DJ Enuff, and the list goes on. During this time she wrote for such artists as Aretha Franklin, Jody Watley, Tyrese and numerous new comers even rearranging song for remixes for the Braxtons and SWV.
For the last ten years she has made her home as an artist in dance music recording many songs on Kingstreet Sounds. This relationship yielded a full length album which was released in 2003. the album is a combination of many of the songs she recorded over the years along with a few new things.

14689803_657360057760145_1961326154_oThese days, Stephanie is reaching new heights as an artist and has come into her own on the stage. New relationships and circles of producers, a new home label and extended family have taken her career as a writer and performer to another level. She´s currently working on a new album with West End Records with Blaze leading the list of great producers promised to appear on the project. She recently recorded several songs with Blaze that truly set a pace for her career including titles such as “Love Will”, ” Lover´s Holiday” and “Love makes the World go Round”. This coming year promises to be one filled with great new creations on her palette of fine recordings with the future brighter than ever she has nothing but Phenomenal Woman on her agenda.When she’s not working on her forthcoming ‘My Heart’ LP, Ms. Cooke runs her own Angeltown Recordings label.

Her movements attract you, her music captivates you, and her voice soothes your soul with joy. Her immeasurable vocal and songwriting talents bestow upon audiences a remarkable experience, replenishing one’s hopefulness, love, and aspiration.

bolsoul_tracy_hamlin_4I introduce to you, Tracy Hamlin. She unveiled her soulful, exquisitely impassioned voice to the world at the La Fountain Blue at age eleven. She has been traveling the globe as a lead singer ever since, from Sweden to Japan to Morocco to name a few.

tracyhamlincoverBetter Days, an exceptional successor to Seasons, provides a truthful and transparent portrayal of Tracy’s musical universe. Songs such as You’ve Got To Let Go and No Regrets compassionately guide one through self-reflection, while Better Days and Free offer warming reveries of belief and optimism. With help from collaborative producers Phil Davis, Eric Valentine, and Kelvin Wooten, Better Days takes listeners on an inspiring odyssey.

Tracy’s third release, This is My Life, hit the airwaves June 2013, immediately gained the attention of music lovers globally, and held the #1 position for two weeks on the UK Soul Charts.
