GOLD, the follow-up to Carolyn Malachi’s GRAMMY-nominated single "Orion", includes contemporary R&B radio hits "All Right" and “Fall Winter Spring Summer”—a track included on NPR's 2013 "10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing" list. Malachi describes GOLD as an ever-appreciating commodity: self-empowerment. Using her music as a force for good, she advocates across the globe for access to education and technology through collaborations with the School Fund, GRAMMY U and the Global Fund for Women. She says, “Each of our paths is unique. Music is the intersection where we pause for collective conversation. Music is universal.” After two years of international touring, Carolyn Malachi has returned to DC to record new music.

The Larry Draughn Music Group consists of Vanessa Ferguson (Voice), Kenny Phelps Mckeown (Bass) and William Darity (Guitar). A multi-faceted ensemble, the L.D.M.G. plays a variety of styles spanning the American pop music tradition: high-level jazz improvisation, hip hop, R&B, gospel, down home blues, and rock too. Lately the group’s performances have focused on celebrating and reimagining the work of North Carolina jazz icons—a project they call the North Carolina Jazz Continuum—and thanks to the vocal talents of Vanessa Ferguson, today’s artist in focus is Nina Simone. Bandleader Larry Draughn (also known as Q) has been honing his craft from a young age, later earning and led him to a Bachelors in Classical percussion and a Masters in Jazz Studies. Q is a first-call musician who has traveled the world playing drums, but this latest ensemble of standout North Carolina jazz musicians is one of his favorites.
