ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
B. Blunt has been in love with music since the early days of his childhood. Growing up in a soul and funk filled town like Washington, DC and singing in local youth choirs inspired Blunt to make music his life’s passion. This singer, producer, writer, and musician has focused all of his energies on providing to the world his soul and unique sound.

Making music has always been in his blood as his father was a member of the legendary group, The Drifters. Blunt recorded his first song at the tender age of three and soon began playing the drums and keyboard. As a soloist in his church choir, he had the opportunity to open for several distinguished gospel artists like Vickie Winans and Darryl Coley and perform alongside Richard Smallwood and Yolanda Adams. These performances in front of thousands of people gave Blunt an extreme amount of confidence and conviction that he could follow his dreams.

Blunt studied music briefly at Lincoln University and Bowie State University. In 2002 he became the lead male vocalist for a local band with an affectionate and warm name, Yamama’nym (pronounced Ya-mama-an-nem). Combining sultry soulful sounds with a touch of Jazz, a hint of soul, and a twist of hip-hop, Yamama’nym quickly became one of the hottest live bands in the Washington, DC area, as well as Baltimore, St. Louis and Norfolk, Va. While singing with Yamama’Nym Blunt has performed various local venues such as the African American Heritage Festival in Baltimore and The Annual Black Family Reunion on the National Mall and Juste Lounge. The groups’ debut album entitled “2:00 AM” was released in 2003 and features the crowd favorite, “Soular Tranquility” which was performed, written, produced and arranged by Blunt.

When not performing with or writing for the band, Blunt spends all of his creative energy running his own production company, Boog Entertainment. Boog Entertainment was started to add another aspect to Blunt’s musical repertoire, his love for Hip-Hop music. Boog Entertainment has afforded Blunt the opportunity to produce and write songs for numerous established and up and coming hip-hop and R&B acts in the Washington area. Blunt has recorded with Jive Records recording artist Raheem Devaughn and produced four songs for hip-hop artist 20x20’s commercially released album, “The Vision".

Throughout the years, Blunt has collaborated and performed with some of Washington DC’s most talented musicians and artists including Lil Los, Don Carter, Black Alley, Uncalled 4, E.U., Lissen, Familiar Faces, and the legendary Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown. He’s performed at some of the most popular venues in town including Bar Nun, Home Nightclub, FUR, Iconz, Zanzibar on the Waterfront, Kili's Kafe, Café Asia, Club U, Izora's, Takoma Station, Juste Lounge, Camden Yards, Daedalus, Pearl, Johnny K's, WPGC, Warner Theatre, the Washington Convention Center, and the Kennedy Center. In addition Blunt has been afforded the opportunity to perform alongside national recording artists such as Al Green, Mint Condition, Biz Markie and Lil Scrappy. Blunt has also opened up for Brian McKnight, Floetry, Jadakiss, Jaheim, Anthony Hamilton, and Erykah Badu. He has performed at several major events including the 2005 Essence Music Festival, Baptist World Alliance Annual Convention, Positive Black Men’s Coalition, Annual Congressional Black Caucus Black Tie Dinner, Unifest, XM Radio’s The Flow, and the Kennedy Center Honors Award show. Additionally Blunt has been fortunate enough to travel outside of the DC area to perform in cities like Baltimore, New York, St. Louis, Norfolk, New Orleans and even Hong Kong.

Blunt wants people to groove to his melodic production and to feel the joys and pains of his life when he touches you with his stirring voice. He aims to carry on the traditions of Marvin Gaye, Duke Ellington and other Washington, DC music legends and put his hometown back on the map.

Great Songs sung with passion !
I can't remember when I have liked all songs on an album. It's rare but this one certainly falls into that category. I like all the songs. Had to buy a second one so I could keep one in the house and one in the car. Buy it, you'll like/love it !

This is what soul music is all about.
The album tells a great story about love, losing love, joy & pain. Each song is unique and tells a different aspect of the ups & downs of love. You can put this CD on and let it ride. Classic material.

MUSICAL JOURNEY
There aren’t enough words to express the emotional connection, I feel when embarking on the musical journey…that one takes…when listening to Blunt’s CD entitled, “Changes. As the title of track 3, “Soular Tranquility”, explains the musical experience in whole.

To absorb this work of ART, one must understand the talent one must possess to write, produce and delivery… such a lyrical masterpiece as this one.

It is my pleasure, to have the opportunity to support a talented young black man in the music industry -- that is producing positive and motivating music. Changes, provides a mixture of uplifting, soul moving, and peaceful tracks… which allows the listener to change from one environment or atmosphere to the next. You could be cursing the streets of DC with a friend… at happy hour at Hotel Helix…cleaning the house… working hard at the job… or doing the couples and/or ladies night in the house with a glass of wine. Changes -- does not place a limit on the ambience you are trying to create. It is actually a mood setter!

As you can see this CD took me by storm… Something’s move your body and others move your soul.

This short review doesn’t give it justice… Right now, I keep this CD in rotation… with little to no rotating. I love it. Once you find something that moves your mind, body and soul… you stick with it… it naturally becomes a part of you!

I find myself repeating tracks --(1)-Smile, (2)-You Shine and (6)-What happen 2 U.

The reason being-- my roots come from D (rama) C (ity)…a.k.a “Chocolate City”, where growing up on soulful music is a way of life. Currently live in L.A., makes popping in Blunt’s CD… remind me of how growing up in DC on Go-Go music and the local artist…has away of telling a familiar story. One is able to personally relate to the lyrics of Blunt’s songs… and connect them to everyday life – whether a native Washingtonian or being from anywhere else in the world. You are able to make a personal connection, which in my opinion is the beauty of the CD… As we have all experienced that first love… ex-love… or the man or woman we once knew…

Like; I stated before, the CD is a work of Art… There are three things in this world that provide me with --inspiration, motivation and a peace of mind… (1) God (2) traveling and (3) good soul moving music… with that… I say, “thank you Blunt for share a piece of you, with us through your musical talent.” Your performance at Takoma Station was my first… and you “Did the DXXX thing!”

Don’t limit your mind, body or soul from this musical exploration. Buy the CD… if not for your own pleasure… but to support this young brother… They make good stocking stuffers for Holidays…

I respect your hard work and devotion… Through God all things are possible… Keep up the good work… in paving away for others…

As God has blessed you with the gift to create SOUL MOVING MUSIC… CONTINUE TO BLESS OTHERS IN SHARING IT…

PEACE, SUPPORT AND HAPPINESS BE WITH YOU,
