Devious: musical architect who helped shape today’s bounce sound

“We gonna start this thing off right – we got Devious in the house tonight!” – From 1992’s hit single “Where They At”

New Orleans legend Devious (and of course, Hollygrove’s own) has long been a mainstay in urban music. His new single “Bounce That” was released just as Drake’s new singles are working to bring New Orleans’ unique and often imitated/never fully duplicated sound to the world! Super producer BlaqNMild created the track and added his awesome flavor to the already delicious recipe. Yes folks, it’s an exciting time in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Devious has long worked as an architect of New Orleans’ exciting sound, most notably for his historical work on DJ Jimi’s 1992 hit single “Where They At”. In fact, that song solidified the careers of not only Jimi, but Devious and Mellow Fellow and led to an explosion of Bounce Music as an entire sub-genre. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we must put it out there that New Orleans culture created Bounce. The city’s own legends catapulted it into mainstream. Once it took its place in music history, artists such as Drake and T.I. helped to make the sound travel even further around the globe – BUT credit must be given to those who created, cultivated and nurtured Bounce and New Orleans music in the beginning! Devious is one of those “bricklayers”.

“Bounce That” is available at all digital outlets. A full length album entitled “The Narrative” will soon be released by Devious and you can expect to see some memorable collaborations on deck. Devious is a highly lauded, talented and awarded songwriter, artist, entreprenuer, educator, and mentor who has been busy gaining songwriting credits with Cardi B, Lil Duval, Project Pat, and more. As of late, BlaqNMild has been producing for Drake on “Nice For What” and “In My Feelings”, as well as on Devious’ upcoming album.

Be on the lookout for Devious’ new video and single “Coffee House” feat another legendary Hollygrove MVP, Fiend. In fact, be on the lookout for Devious and BlaqNMild to continue adding to the history of New Orleans’ beautiful entertainment resume!

@CreoleKing releases “Flower” single

Flower

The New Orleans native currently resides in Atlanta and is blazing a new trail in Neo Soul Music. Suffice it to say, he is leading the way in the revival of real music.
Creole King is known for being one of the most inspirational and creative modern day music artists and songwriters. His style is unrivaled in that his music is traditional, yet influential and is helping to reshape the sound of today’s fusions of sound. One of the goals he hopes to achieve through the release of “Flower” and his next several singles is that of cultivating a genuine and organic connection with male and female fans alike, particularly those in the 25-45 age bracket. Creole King’s mission through his art is to restore belief in the power of love and to show that vulnerability is a strength, when properly channeled. He also seeks to evoke thought through the use of resonant lyrics and imagery. He works tirelessly to achieve those goals and has been quite successful in branding himself as a sought-after performer and songwriter.

“Flower” was released to wide acclaim on April 17, 2017 and is available for purchase or streaming on all major digital entertainment platforms, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, and hundreds more. The song was written by Creole King and produced by Riley Klages of Klaskey Productions. While penning the lyrics, Creole King envisioned finding the purest connection in the most improbable of places. It highlights the importance of being open, receptive and appreciative of love in all of its forms. He made certain the lyrics are boundless and not about exhausting or limiting the possibilities of love. The song is a truthful, light seeking work of art that will certainly assist Creole King in further making his mark on the entertainment world. Creole King’s fans recognize his highly lauded talent for painting vivid images through his lyrics and this is one of many avenues that will propel him to the top of the Neo Soul charts. Visuals for “Flower” are scheduled to be filmed in the very near future.
Creole King plans to release his next single, “Miss Iniquity”, over the summer. He has a lot of plans for career growth, especially where his “Flower” campaign is concerned. For booking, appearances, hosting, etc., please email ckmgbiz@gmail.com.
