"Open my ears so that I may hear. Open my eyes so that I may see." With this in mind, Honeycomb Music and its illustrious #honeycombnation proudly welcomes the incomparable Brenda Jones to the Honeycomb family. With her brand new “What Your Love Has Done” release, Brenda Jones, Dewey Cioffi and Josh Milan team up to deliver a masterpiece! Penned in 2007 by Cioffi of DivaDownEnt. and co-produced by the late George Mena, the song is obviously very special to us. While Brenda Jones endeared us with her intensely beautiful voice, George Mena engaged us with his immense talent and that signature MenaKeys sound! Honeycomb’s own Josh Milan brought the project back to life in 2014, signing it to the label and putting his own organic dance flavor to an already magical collaboration!

For more of this good music, get stuck on Honeycomb @ honeycombmusicstore.com


A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS RELEASE:
We’re all very excited to introduce this new single featuring Brenda JonesGirl of the famous girl group The Jones Girls to Honeycomb Music. After what has been over a 15 year hiatus -- during which time, Brenda put her children through college and took care of her family (including her nephew after the untimely passing of her baby sister Valorie,) Brenda is back in an AWESOME way. The Diva is ready to promote her new single and help catapult this Soulful House Anthem as a true-to-life testimony about the trials and tribulations of life.

Josh’s mixes range from Soulful to Deep House – all having his classic edge and style. “What Your Love Has Done” is available now exclusively at: honeycombmusicstore.com, beginning on December 7th 2014, Brenda’s birthday!

_______________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

It was one year ago this Black Friday that Honeycomb Music brought us the FREE poetry album, "Happy."

Josh Milan, longtime producer, singer, songwriter and DJ, partnered with poetry collective Raw Honey to develop the free digital release. All of the poems were written about the theme happiness and were all backed by Milan's signature beats, melodies and even a few vocals.

Offered as a free download, this release is still available from the Honeycomb Music Store!

The lushly produced "Happy" is easy on the ears and even easier on the budget because it is a totally free download.

"Since our inception, we have been overwhelmed by the support fans have given our music releases. This project started as a gesture to thank our supporters and provide broader exposure to some of my poetry colleagues," said Josh Milan, CEO and Founder of Honeycomb Music. "But it morphed into something much bigger and much more special than we anticipated. The nine women represent a range of different life perspectives. And as the project progressed they have bonded and gained inspiration from each other. They soon dubbed themselves Raw Honey and resolved to let other artists know that it is never too late to pursue artistic dreams."

Produced by Milan, "Happy" showcases thought-provoking, approachable poetry paired with Jazz, Funk, Techno, World Beat and, of course, House. The poets themselves range in experience from a first-time performer to regulars on the spoken word scene to a seasoned literary writer to an internationally known House Music spoken word artist. Each member of Raw Honey wants to empower others through art. "What blows me away most about Raw Honey is their courage and their openness. All of the poets are over 30 and some are in their 50s. Although this business is often about youth culture and catering to the mainstream, they have turned that notion on its ear. This poetry project will be inspirational to all types of artists. And, frankly, that makes me happy," said Milan.

The members of Raw Honey are: Tantra Zawadi, Rescue Poetix, Debbie "Sanctuary" McRae, Brown Sugah, Sage Youngblood, Rhonda Welsh, Carolyn "Diamondancer" Ferrari, BNanaz Sweets, and Nicole "Essence" Jenkins-Watson.

Click here to download the 'For Kim' EP press release.

Tracy Brathwaite's phenomenal debut For Kim EP drops onto Honeycomb Music, just in time for the holidays! Dedicated to Kim, Tracy's sister, who connected Tracy and label head Josh Milan, this EP is filled with beautiful songs about love, life and laughter. Josh notes that "Tracy has a vocal styling that is her own. Blues, Gospel, Rock and R&B all in one. It's this type of singer/songwriter that, in my opinion, the industry needs." The For Kim EP also includes remixes from DJ/producers Ian Friday, Jihad Muhammad and Carlos Mena!

In celebration of her EP release, Honeycomb has also issued the 12" vinyl of Tracy's smash single, "Smile." "Smile" has been championed by hugely talented producers and DJs including Joe Claussell, Grammy award winner Louie Vega (Roots NYC, WBLS Radio New York,) Danny Krivit and many notable others. Visit honeycombmusicstore.com for details.

TRACY BRATHWAITE THANKS:
I thank my heavenly father first and foremost, Love and thanks to all my angels, my loved ones and all those who love what I do.
