V. Opens LA’s House of Blues August 19th

Thump Records Celebrates 19 Years As Their B-DUB Imprint Joins Jaggo Records to Present Evelyn “Champagne” King’s First Release in 15 Years August 19th Grammy Award-Winning artist Evelyn Champagne King Will Debut her New CD, Open Book, Live at the House of Blues in LA on August 19th With Special Guest, Latin Sensation Jodi V. Whose Rotation Music Album Will be Released September 9th

Los Angeles, CA (Billboard Publicity Wire) August 18, 2008 — As Thump Records (www.thumprecords.com) celebrates an amazing 19th Anniversary, their B-DUB Imprint Joins with Big Day/Jaggo Records to present Grammy Award Winning artist Evelyn “Champagne” King’s first release in 15 Years on August 19th, OPEN BOOK.

And Evelyn “Champagne” King Will Debut her New CD Live at the House of Blues in LA on August 19th With Special Guest, Latin Sensation Jodi V. Jodi’s Rotation/Thump Album SEED OF LOVE will drop September 9th featuring the single, “Uh Oh.” Jodi V. joins Evelyn Champagne King as she unleashes her new album which also commemorates 30 years on the charts.

It’s the 19th Anniversary of Thump Records. Thump President Bill Walker notes, “We made it through 19 years in this crazy business. We’re proud to welcome Evelyn to the Thump/B-DUB/Jaggo family of labels and are excited to present her first release in 15 years to be released August 19th at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.

Evelyn “Champagne” King’s new album — Open Book — is her first in 15 years. While working one night at Gamble & Huff’s famed Philadelphia International Records’ offices, A producer overheard some tantalizing vocals. There he discovered a 16-year-old Evelyn King singing while tidying up the offices. After signing the singer to a production deal, Evelyn “Champagne” King’s debut single, “Dancin’, Dancin’, Dancin'” from her 1977 smash LP Smooth Talk hit the charts. But it was a song written by John Fitch and Reuben Cross entitled “Shame” that truly launched her career. Evelyn would go on to record 24 Billboard charting singles including such hits as “I’m In Love” and “Love Come Down.” All the while, Ms. King developed a sizeable fan base with her incredible work ethic and non-stop world tours. Now Evelyn will release Open Book. “This one” she says lovingly, “is for my fans.” The album features a new dance single, “The Dance” (remixed by the UK’s Soul Seekerz – Rhianna), “Skillz” and the title track, a ballad Evelyn describes as “slightly autobiographical.”

Latin sensation Jodi V.’s new single, “Uh Oh” features top-notch production. Her album boasts real lyrics and songs that contain no sampled music. In fact, Jodi V. is creating a buzz with her heated tracks. Her debut set, Seed Of Love is a street-wise blend of pop with hip-hop appeal to it. Jodi’s voice is sultry, smoky, sexy and as real as it comes. On Seed of Love, Jodi V. shows an impressive musical range from the street hip ‘love-gone-wrong’ of “Crazy Chick” which has received regional mix show spins in Texas and Nevada to the previously mentioned “Uh Oh” which radio is already embracing. This single features a club-banging beat with Jodi’s taunting and teasing, almost “too hot for radio” line,” — “You want it…I got it.” Future chart toppers also include “He Ain’t Everything,” a slamming rhythmic track produced by Fingazz, who recently landed a top ten hit with “Lean Like A Cholo.” David Salas, known for his major label, Latin music compositions, produced “Let Go” a crossover ballad with 808 booms, guaranteed to shatter any already broken heart. Jodi describes her music in simple, one-word phrases. “The songs,” she says, are “inspiring, bright, soulful, comforting, rhythmic, emotional, real and sincere.” Seed Of Love is all those things and more. Tracks include: Seed Of Love, Crazy B, Uh Oh, Breaking Down, He Ain’t Everything, California Luvin’, Let Go, Classy Ladies, Take Control, Crazy Chick.

JODI V INTERVIEW IN SAN DIEGO READER 8/7/2008

JODI V SEED OF LOVE

JODI V SEED OF LOVE

 

JODI V INTERVIEW IN THE SAN DIEGO READER 8/7/2008
“I’ve always enjoyed music and singing,” says singer/songwriter Jodi V, “but I grew up in a religious household, so singing anywhere else but at church was not an option.” Her first public performance was at age seven with her rendition of “These Words I Sing for You,” a bilingual song composed by her father for her mom. She sang for a dozen friends and family members on her neighbor’s porch.”At the age of 18,” she says, “I was given a bit more freedom, so I took advantage by collaborating with local hip-hop artists and producers that I met through mutual friends.”While singing hooks for rappers and producers in exchange for studio time, Jodi posted her own four-song demo on MySpace. One of the rap groups she performed with also has a MySpace page, which they used to send a “friend request” to Rotation Music, a record label based for over 20 years in Laguna Beach. Label heads weren’t impressed by the hip-hoppers, but they did like the photo of Jodi V they saw on the rappers’ MySpace.”I was approached through MySpace by [label owner] Allan Gomez,” says Jodi. “He offered to help me release my first album.” Distributed by label heavyweight Universal, Jodi V’s provocatively titled debut Seed of Love is set for release September 9.

WHAT’S IN YOUR MUSIC PLAYER?

“I’m bumping Colbie Caillat’s Coco CD for the moment. Her voice is extremely soothing, and I can relate to a lot of her songs.”

DESERT-ISLAND DVDs?

The Sweetest Thing is the funniest chick flick ever, but no one will watch it with me because I always rewind it to my favorite parts at least five times in a row. There’s also The Notebook.

C’mon, you know you love it, too. And probably The Wizard of Oz and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, though I admit they’re a little creepy. They’re for those days when I’m in a silly mood.”

TWO FAVORITE WEBSITES?

1. MySpace.com: “You can find old friends, new friends, old lovers, new lovers, family, and music. You can even get signed by a major record label!”

2. YouTube.com: “Staying up on Saturday night until two in the morning watching videos is way better than a potential DUI.”

THREE GUILTY PLEASURES?

1. “I constantly laugh and crack jokes about people with bad fashion sense. It’s mean, but I really can’t help it.”

2. “Being late. I like my five extra minutes.”

3. “Eating a lot of Mexican candy. I had an ulcer two years ago from it, but I just can’t stop.”

BRUSH WITH FAME?

“I got to see Xzibit, MC and host of Pimp My Ride, backstage at one of his concerts. I thought it would be cute to ask him to ‘officially pimp me,’ but he refused. He must get that all the time because he seemed pretty annoyed.”

LAST BOOK READ?

“Well, I’ll admit that, ever since MySpace, I haven’t been reading too much. How to Write a Hit Song is probably the last book I read. It demonstrates and breaks down hit songs so you can learn what works.”

WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT?

“I love the Turf Club on the corner of C and 25th Street. It’s a bar-and-grill where you cook your own food on one huge grill while talking to complete strangers. There’s also ‘Intervention,’ Sundays at the Hard Rock Hotel, which is a cool spot to party it up during the day. There’s always a beautiful crowd.”

YOUR PERSONAL MANTRA?

“‘Time heals everything, so don’t give in or give up.’ I came up with this one day, and I repeat it to myself whenever I’m having a weak moment.”

BEST “I WAS SO BUZZED” STORY?

“I have way too many stories…I’ll keep it short and PG rated. After clubbing one night I let my friend push me around in a shopping cart. It was hilarious — until he hit a crack and I flew out. I was wearing a skirt, so it was a hot mess!”

TERRIBLE JOBS?

1. “I worked at a kiosk in the mall selling portable karaoke machines. It sucked because I had to sing all these horrible songs, and I always seemed to run into someone I knew.”

2. “The worst was this clerical job I had at a funeral home. I was paid $7 an hour to type up death certificates. Surprisingly, I was also responsible for ushering and singing at the funeral services, making casket sprays, driving the company limo or coach whenever the reverend showed up hungover, pulling out dead people from the fridge for ID viewings, and even — yikes — putting makeup on them.”

SOMETHING ABOUT YOU FEW WOULD KNOW OR GUESS?

“I constantly get told that I come off as intimidating or snobby, but the truth is that I’m sweet and very interested in what you have to say.”
