NEWS | Orgone Signs Deal With Shanachie Entertaiment. New CD Coming in April

I feel like a jerk for losing track of Orgone for so long. Still, I’m glad to hear this bit of good news for the band. Swiped from The Urban Music Scene website.

 

“If you haven’t heard the news.. We signed with Shanachie Ent.! Look out for a NEW Orgone CD in April 2015, thank you again for the support!!”

“In the 1970’s, there was a plethora of self-contained R&B/funk bands such as The Meters, Kool & The Gang, Earth, Wind & Fire, War, Parliament/Funkadelic, Mandrill, Rufus and of course James Brown’s JB’s, who were creating expansive combinations of R&B, funk, rock, Latin and pan-African sounds, often via wide-ranging, incendiary live performances that put them on the cutting edge of global music-making. Over time, the rise of hip-hop and disco eclipsed the great R&B/funk bands, though ironically their funk grooves were resurrected by hip-hop artists via sampling from the late 80’s on. A new generation of artists has rediscovered this music and have begun resurrecting and re-shaping it for 21st Century ears. One of the best of the new generation funk/R&B bands is Orgone, a eight-person group now fronted by scorching-hot vocalist Adryon de Leon. Beginning as a largely instrumental band nearly a decade ago, Orgone, with the addition of DeLeon, and increased touring up to 150 dates a year, has evolved to become a high-energy band with extraordinary command of a wide range of R & B and funk grooves, laced with jazz, Latin and rock music. Orgone has just been signed by Shanachie Entertainment and is now recording a new album –their first with DeLeon, slated for April release.”
