SR EVENT: Caprice StarBRITE CD Release Party

Kicking off an exciting new year, rock-soul artist, Caprice StarBRITE is debuting her eclectic fusion of rock, funk and blues in her debut cd “NO GIMMICKS NO TRICKS” with a cd release party backed by her band, ‘3 Shades of Chocolate,’ at the acclaimed Harlem venue, New Amsterdam Musical Association, on Friday, January 4, 2013 from 7-11pm.

Caprice StarBRITE is no stranger to the stage or to NAMA - she recently performed there for the first time with her band.

Caprice grew up in a musical household influenced by the likes of Michael Jackson, Teena Marie, Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, Cheryl Lynn, Phyllis Hyman, Marlena Shaw, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, George Clinton, and Mavis Staples. Her musical journey began at the age of nine as a member of the glee club then paved the way to her next phase as a dancer including being a member of the Kushinda Dance Company. Since she is a vocalist at heart, her path weaved her back to her first love with her doing local performances at various venues such as at the Gateway Theater and Chelsea Common Bar & Restaurant as well as providing her vocal prowess to a bevy of artists, such as Dexter Myers, ZoZo Afrobeat, Rhythm Republik, MiKA, Coby Koehl, just to name a few.

Fast forwarding to the last quarter of 2012, she has teamed up with executive producer, guitarist & composer, JEROME SCORPIOCHILD of Cave Lab Studios, to put the final touches on her solo debut CD entitled, 'NO GIMMICKS, NO TRICKS.' This debut showcases her riveting sound of soulful rock without auto tune or other studio tricks, hence the name of the release. With edgy tracks such as the domestic violence survivor resilience anthem, “NO MORE;” the infectious rock infused track of strength in “EVERYTHING AINT” right down to the smooth soulful track of letting go your woes in “YESTERDAY,” this rockstress has put her heart on the line without apology! ‘NO GIMMICKS, NO TRICKS’ is an organic blend of her influences, her persona, her soul and her experiences combined for a fantastic musical voyage that will never be forgotten.

The cd release party will be climactic as it officially introduces Caprice and her tenacious band, 3 Shades of Chocolate (with Jerome Scorpiochild on guitar, Warren Cox on bass and Samuel Jennings on drums) to the masses. In addition to the rock vibes, independent artist, N’Tirzah Al Rephaim, will also treat music lovers to a soulful performance and local entrepreneurs, Annie Mae’s Cheesecakes & Moore and, Tea By Tiffany will provide holistic yet sinful indulgences throughout the evening.

See You There!
