Zo! - This Could Be The Night feat. Eric Roberson, Darien Brockington & Rapper Big Pooh
Truly a family affair, the first single from Zo's forthcoming SunStorm LP features Darien Brockington and fellow Grammy-nominee Eric Roberson going back and forth over a bouncy, two-step groove topped off with a cameo from Rapper Big Pooh. Enjoy, spread the word, and as always....thank you for listening!

The Foreign Exchange rocks B.B. King's (via SoulTracks)

by +FE on June 21, 2010 at 8:02 AM · Comments
The Foreign Exchange was working especially hard, commencing their loaded weekend schedule in Philadelphia, performing during The Roots Picnic. A short but sweet set was just enough to whet the appetite of the New Yorkers who traveled down for the day. Nonetheless, on Sunday night, it was all about New York City. The energy was palpable. And with Jesse Boykins III opening, the audience was in for a solid night of comedy, grooves and entertainment the only way FE knows how to deliver.

The Foreign Exchange to bring Authenticity this October (via SoulBounce)

by +FE on June 14, 2010 at 9:55 AM · Comments
October 12, 2010. Add this date to your calendar right now and circle it in red, schedule an alarm or do whatever you need to do to remember it because that, my friends, is the release date of The Foreign Exchange's third album. Entitled Authenticity, Nicolay and Phonte will be coming back once again to change the game that we call urban music. Their sound is constantly evolving and from the delicious sneak peek that I've heard, one thing is for sure--expect the unexpected from these cats and their cohorts YahZarah, Darien Brockington and Zo!. While we wait for Authenticity to drop, you already know that next to FE's official website, SoulBounce will be Foreign Exchange Central in the coming months. So, yes, go ahead and start getting excited from now.

Recap: The Foreign Exchange at B.B. King's, New York (via Suite903)

by +FE on June 11, 2010 at 1:45 PM · Comments
Arriving at B.B. Kings Sunday, June 6th armed with camera, pen and pad, I was ready with high expectations for The Foreign Exchange. The multi-faceted identity of FE is represented by YahZarah, Phonte and Darien Brockington, together combining an ecclecic recipe of hip-hop, blues, funk, reggae with a complete "feel good" gospel experience.

Nicolay's genius production sets the tone of the show with the witty lyricism of Phonte; smooth serenading of Darien Brockington, topped off with the sultry vocals of Yahzarah St. James. It only takes one live show to see that this union's very existence, which can only produce the kind of music that is timeless. The Foreign Exchange show was very entertaining, but do not take that description loosely. The experience of being at a Foreign Exchange concert is nothing short of musical genius.

The Foreign Exchange - Authenticity

by +FE on June 9, 2010 at 6:13 AM · Comments
The Foreign Exchange - Authenticity
"Authenticity" is the 3rd full-length from indie-soul duo The Foreign Exchange.

Picking up where their 2008 Grammy-nominated "Leave It All Behind" set left off, "Authenticity" is the group's most diverse work to date, with a tight, 11-track song cycle spanning the duo's trademark brand of lush electronic soul, to stripped down acoustic pieces that recall the heyday of 70's singer-songwriter driven folk.
