Member News: Haitian-American Singer Karlex Signs Up To MusicDish Network
Posted on Monday, March 05 @ 03:43:41 MST by roadrash
 MD NewsMannieb writes "MusicDish, LLC, a music magazine publisher and artist marketing/development firm, announced the addition of Haitian American singer/songwriter Karlex to its MusicDish Network roster. Karlex, who is currently based in the south of France, soulfully fusses the vibes of his native island with funky guitar sounds and heavy bass, in a unique blend called Afro Groove. MusicDish founder Eric de Fontenay and Karlex, who had first met in September 2006, struck the deal in the Press Club of the Palais des Festivals on the closing day of MIDEM 2007 in Cannes, France.

MusicDish will provide full online management support, including brand development and marketing, as well as seeking licensing and business opportunities for his album "Ghetto Fabulous". Released in France in September 2006, "Ghetto Fabulous" will be released in Benelux in February 2007, followed by a six city tour in the Netherlands in April. He is also currently seeking distribution in the North American market.

The album has been making waves from the start, having been selected by "Arte TV" as an October Event and by "Radio Africa No 1" as Album Of The Week leading up to the release. Karlex was invited by Phillipe Lefait on France 2's 'Live Acoustic' to play his song "I've Got News For You...", while the album's first music video "Farewell Angel" has been receiving regular play on the "Europe 2" cable channel.

In his teens, Karlex moved New York City from Haiti, where he played with different bands with influences as diverse as Rock, Pop and World. In the 90's, he returned to Haiti where the ambient mysticism, the people's sufferings, the history (past & present) brought a radical change in his sounds and inspiration. Karlex reminisced, "I was reborn. The calling of the drums in the night filled me with a longing to get back to the true essence of liberty and freedom that my ancestors fought for. And nothing translated that better for me than a certain sound reminiscent of the 60's and 70's fused with actual urban music and Haitian soul."

Karlex joins an eclectic roster of artists and companies on the MusicDish Network's marketing/artist development program, including electro-groove artist Polarity/1; Your Guitarist, the Internet-based developer of custom guitar tracks; folk-country singer/songwriter Amy Speace; MusicWorld3D, the virtual environment for live entertainment; and RockPoP Gallery, showcasing the masters of music artwork.
