Don’t just hear about it, create memories at the Muses of Brick City! Newark NJ native, Gail Campbell, has released a highly anticipated sophomore album, “Let My People Go,” and it is expected to make an even bigger impact than her award-winning debut album, “Bloody Waters,” which was also entirely produced by acclaimed producer, Stanley Ipkiss. On this new album, Gail Campbell has again shown her diversity as an artist with her rock-n-roll, blues, hip-hop, soul gospel, and dance vibe. Campbell has again held back nothing vocally and poured her whole soul into this latest project, and music fans are not disappointed. Critics are comparing Gail Campbell’s voice to the likes of such music greats as Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, and even Aretha Franklin, and Campbell clearly embraces her retro style on this groundbreaking album with songs like the title track, “Let My People Go,” which has an early jazz feel. She shows her deeply soulful side with “Your Eyes,” which uses an Isaac Hayes sample, in which Campbell dives headlong into the 70s era. She and Stanley Ipkiss push the envelope even further with her hit song, “Dot,” which is an interesting Afrobeat/house music fusion that has fans in a frenzy. Campbell and Stanley Ipkiss have clearly found a lane of their own, and from the response of fans, the public is clearly here for it! Tyra Gardner Ebony, a model at the legendary iconic House of Ebony, is not just a striking presence on the runway but also a formidable advocate for trans rights. As a house mother, Tyra embodies strength, grace, and resilience, nurturing and guiding emerging talents within the house while fiercely advocating for inclusivity and equality in the fashion industry and beyond. With her powerful presence and unwavering commitment to social justice, Tyra Gardner Ebony continues to inspire and empower individuals worldwide. Nelly Bess is a multi-talented individual, known as a poet, musician, facilitator, youth activist, and professor. With a passion for creativity and education, Nelly wears many hats, each reflecting her dedication to empowering others and fostering positive change. As the curator of @thesessionnj, she brings together artists and thinkers to engage in meaningful dialogue and artistic expression.
