“I only can do me – I must be frank, witty, and pretty with it”
- “German artist Pawcut comes with style and class on this 3 track EP featuring Philly vocalist JoGoldie. The tracks are drenched in smoky layers of jazz harmony with the future thinking edge of a perfectly processed breakbeat. The vocals are the true centerpiece however, providing a longing and emotive glimpse into love. Also included are a remix and instrumental! …. this mysterious up and comer!” – NuSoul Musings
- JoGoldie full length album release “On My Way” – Coming Soon
- “Giving thanks to all supporters – S/O Last Dynasty Show – Macnitti!”
Vicki: Who Inspires JoGoldie?
JoGoldie: Nina Simone comes to my thought first. She emotes something familiar in my being and it can be good and bad. When I listened to her music for the first time, back in the late 90’s, I gained an appreciation for the ole saying “it is what it is”. I was stuck in place where singing had to sound perfect or acceptable. I enjoy the little mistakes and off-key recordings I make and now I sing into my experience with no boundaries.
Vicki: If you could sit and talk with the legend today, what would you talk about?
JoGoldie: First it would an honor so I would give thanks and second, I probably wouldn’t talk about anything deep. Again, thank her for being and all she left. Then chill on daily living and how to maintain the force of offering natural gifts to the world.
Vicki: What is the biggest misconception about you as an artist?
JoGoldie: There are none, since my concepts and thoughts are always changing – I trust others do as well. Therefore, it is what it is (smile).
Vicki: Describe who is the JoGoldie fan or your average listener-
JoGoldie: People who “get it” and just smile to know they are not alone or wow, thank you! I am grateful to have support worldwide from listeners and it feels good to know that I’m not alone. The best part is that most of my songs are for all ages and seeing my boys groove to it – isn’t bad at all.
Eunice Kathleen Waymon (21 February 1933 – 21 April 2003), better known by her stage name Nina Simone, was an American singer-songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist widely associated with jazz music. Simone aspired to become a classical pianist while working in a broad range of styles including classical, jazz, blues, soul, folk, rnb, gospel, and pop.
Simone was born in Tryon, North Carolina, USA, one of eight children. Like a number of other black singers in the U.S., she was inspired as a child by Marian Anderson, and began singing at her local church, also showing great talent as a pianist. Her public debut, a piano recital, was made at the age of ten. Her parents, who had taken seats in the front row, were forced to move to the back of the hall to make way for white audience members. This incident contributed to her later involvement in the civil rights movement.
