Motown Soul


Me, the Soul On Ice crew + Jessica rolled through the motor city last weekend for the Urban Organic Music Festival. Because 3/4 of us already experienced a taste of the festival last year, we were pretty amped at the thought of actually spending a full weekend in Detroit.

There were a lot of great stories about chicken & waffles amongst other things but that will have to be saved for another day. It’s easy to say that the people we met trumped it all.Below is a video of one of the great folks of the D who was definitely a crowd favorite at the Saturday Night event with Roy Ayers. Monica Blaire is someone I’ve been checking for since the release of Exit Music: Songs with Radiohead, where she and Wajeed collaborated beautifully on a cover of “Knives Out.”

This is pretty much the only media I have up from the trip right now but even if it wasn’t It would still rank at the top of the list. Check this quick clip of Monica lighting it up on stage.

For more on Monica Blaire check the MySpace.
