The Foreign Exchange (and Soul) Ride Again at Club Tequila Urban (via HoustonPress)

by +FE on March 29, 2015 at 10:49 AM · Comments
Forgive me, but the last time I ever stepped food inside Club Tequila was when it was a food market. Or at least had all the makings of a food market. Now the venue space had expanded to incorporate lounge-like seating areas, a wide stage with a huge screen and plenty of drinking space.

It also allowed enough space for the Foreign Exchange to let a bit more people into the groove on Thursday night. Less than a full year had passed since the band, led by Phonte Coleman and Nicolay had come together inside of Fitzgerald's. I wrote then that the venue felt like a sweatbox on a Friday night, a juke joint where dirty things are whispered and somebody is off giggling about their latest sexual conquest out in the open.

Thursday night was a bit cooler than their date here last June. Coleman, noticeably slimmer hawking a Jordan T-shirt and jeans found multiple times to throw on those cool R&B-dude Ray-Ban sunglasses and riff in a fun interplay with background singers Carmen Rogers and . The main draw of a Foreign Exchange show isn't the set list, which could touch anything from 2013's Love In Flying Colors album or their 2004 debut Connected, but how much fun would you have in the building.

Taking the Leap with Phonte Coleman (via Oak City Hustle)

by +FE on October 20, 2014 at 5:58 PM · Comments
Phonte Coleman has been on an incredible artistic journey since the prolific rap group Little Brother released their pivotal debut album, The Listening over ten years ago. During this time he has released more than a dozen albums between his work with Little Brother and the neo-soul collective, The Foreign Exchange. We sat down with the Greensboro native to explore the moment he stepped out of his 9 to 5 job and into a career of artistic expression.

The Foreign Exchange - Bizzart - Live report (Via We Bloomish)

by +FE on October 9, 2014 at 7:31 AM · Comments
The Foreign Exchange à Paris c'était Mardi 30 Septembre 2014. Le bizz'art a donc clôturé ce mois de septembre, riche dans leur programmation de septembre, par un autre concert de qualité avec ce groupe étonnant.

Oui le live band est tout aussi brillant que les deux comparses originels, Phonte et Nicolay, un batteur qui tient la route du groove, un bassiste multi-instrumentiste, un pianiste avec de fortes références musicales (qu'il affiche fièrement en arborant un T-shirt avec l'artwork « songs in the key of live » de Stevie Wonder) et les choristes qui ne se contentent pas d'être de jolies plantes.
