The evening of September 10th hosted an intimate listening event for the likes of my friend, music producer Frankie P. and artist on the rise, Camille Safiya. It was on this night that the pair shared their collaborative musical effort, Island Blues, at Premier Studios in Times Square. Attendees consisted of industry insiders, close friends and colleagues, and family members of the two.

The project, which draws deeply from Camille and Frank’s shared Dominican heritage, took listeners on a musical escapade, blending Latin jazz, reggae elements, R&B, soul, alternative, and downtempo elements. ย The title of the project is appropriate, as I believe what they did in this project is truly create a new genre called, “island blues”.
