RAHEEM talks to Blues & Soul

October 20, 2010

During his recent 3-night residency at London’s Jazz Cafe, Raheem DeVaughn sat with Blues & Soul, to talk about his live shows, making music, and the current album The Love & War Masterpeace.

Says Rah on the success of the new album:

“It’s been good. I think I am the type of artist that time and time again either people love or don’t know about. So it means promoting continuously and not give up on it, promoting the records for months at a time and that’s what I am willing to do to get the word out. I try not have any expectations that way I don’t get let down. At the end of the day I just like to make the best music that I can make and put it out to the world and see how they respond to it. It’s always kind of hard and weird to gauge it. When you get on stage and it’s sold out, or the line is wrapped around the building, or you go i-tunes and there are great reviews that’s not bad at all.”

Nice!

The word on RAHEEM at the Jazz Cafe: GENIUS!

October 5, 2010

Raheem Devaughn certainly impressed with his three sold-out shows at the Jazz Cafe last week!

Blues & Soul have just posted a glowing review 🙂

They write:

“Overall Raheem put on a remarkable show for his fans, making sure there was something for everybody, and ensuring that all elements of his R&B Hippie Neo-Soul Rock Star persona was on show. This concert confirmed…that Raheem is not only a talented vocalist, but that he has removed himself from the “neo-soul” label, and produced beautiful music to educate, soothe, and enliven his listener.”

The shows really were something special. Come back soon, Rah!

RAHEEM speaks Love & War!

May 27, 2010

The latest edition of Blues & Soul also comes up trumps, with this brilliant new interview with Raheem DeVaughn talking in-depth about The Love & War Masterpeace… and on being a hippy!

Says Rah: “I’m a modern-day hippie. So, with half of the album being socially conscious, I definitely wanted to bring people to a higher level of consciousness – and a higher level of love – through the vibration of the music. You know, conceptually it was actually very well thought-out. So, while the plan from the gate was to have the two vibes – social conscience and love/romance – it still all gelled together. And, with that being definitely something that Marvin Gaye was known for, I think that’s why I get those comparisons with him. Because I’m able to bring that same philosophy and thought-process into the music.”

Deep!
