To build anticipation for his upcoming EP “Psalms In The Midst”, CHH artist and Chicago based record label owner, Leland Philpot is soon to release his new single “Marvelous Things”! Leland’s single has already crossed over from the CHH world to mainstream by debuting on Chicago’s own Power 92 FM Radio. It is also now available on all streaming outlets.

LELAND EXPLAINS THE IMPACT OF LATEST SINGLE

Leland recently spoke to us about why he believes this song has been so impactful:

Marvelous Things” is powerful. Point. Blank. Period. It’s a song written from a sincere place of reflection, pain, and overcoming. By its authenticity and straightforwardness, his message rings clear… God has done “Marvelous Things”, and his mercy endures forever.

Marvelous Things” to me is one of those songs that will perk you up INSTANTLY! You’re having a tough day, you’ve been having a rough week… put this song on! It’ll make you feel better lol. And the fact that it’s being picked up by the radio is already huge for me… seeing as I come from the open mid scene in Chicago. I hope “Marvelous Things” hits the spot for anyone who hears! “- Leland

MORE ABOUT LELAND:

Every song from Lelands coming EP “Psalms In The Midst” is entirely self-produced and engineered. With a degree in audio engineering, as well as 14 years of production under his belt, Leland Philpot is poised to become a quickly emerging new face in music. He owns his own record label, BabelScatter Productions, with the goal to make good music that promotes the love of Christ, as well as innovates in the current trends of hip-hop/rap as a whole.

Leland’s music has already been making waves in both FM and Online Radio. During the start of the Quarantine due Covid19, Leland’s single and accompanying video went viral leaving followers feeling encouraged during a time of isolation and uncertainty.

LELAND GOES VIRAL ONLINE & EXPANDS TO FM RADIO

In addition to gathering new streaming fans, FM and Online Radio also caught on to the wave leaving them with nothing but good things to say about his music. Read what they had to say below:

“Chicago has a history of birthing passionate and talented conscious rappers. Leland is one we think you should know!” – ArtSoul Radio

“Philpot has a lot planned for 2020 and if this beat is any indication it is going to be great. He recently told us that “THIS is the time to go hard as you can for your destiny, alright? …and it is clear that this is exactly what he is doing.” – The Deli Chicago

“Philpot drops dope abstract lyricism over a fun instrumental. He reps Christ on the track. Makes you press rewind.” – Paul Martinez, Jam The Hype

“My music is Unabashedly Christian, Spiritual, and Hip-Hop, BabelScatter’s eclectic sound aims to impact as well as encourage. The term I’ve coined for myself is “Holy Ghost filled jazz pop avant-guardian hip-hopper”… it sums it up pretty close, but it’s still WAY too long.”
– Lelan Philpot

Leland is just getting started and is already making waves in and outside of CHH Faith based music. His messages of hope and positivity along with his natural joyous charisma is clearly striking a chord with a wide audience. Keep following him. He’s an artist that we think you should know!

Summer is ending and fall or “cuffing season” as many call it is upon us! Be careful! This season comes with the temptation to pull someone closer as the weather gets cooler. But, Dee-1 is encouraging us all at the perfect time to remember the importance of not just pulling anyone close to fulfill a temporary need or pleasure. Dee reminds us all that in life, we need more than company and companionship. We need a “Purpose Partner”.

Dee-1 asks the key question in his latest single “Hallelujah”… “Can they help you grow?”

It’s better to spend time growing in God alone than to go from person to person. It’s best to be more purposeful with your time and choices. But, don’t let us tell it. Check out his single below today!

Gospel Artist Keyondra Lockett Talks New Music, New Business & The Importance of Black Ownership

We had a chance to catch up with the amazing gospel recording artist Keondra Lockett and ask her about her musical journey, her response to the pandemic and its affects on the industry and what’s coming up next in her career.

ARTSOUL: Keyondra, you are such a force to be reckoned with–a powerhouse vocalist, skillful writer and a positive role model for young girls of color! Was this always your dream? How did you get your start in the industry?

KEYONDRA: Thank you so much! Honestly, things just progressed into where they are now. My life really confirms the scripture that says “For I know the plans I have for you” says the LORD (Jeremiah 29:11). My start in music was with 2x Stellar Award Nominee and female gospel group, Zie’l.

ARTSOUL: Who have your influences been for songwriting and your singing style?

KEYONDRA: My top 5 vocal inspirations are: Karen Clark Sheard, Kim Burrell, Miley Cyrus, Brandy, and Billie Holiday. Everything I write is from my experiences so I’d like to say, I influence myself in songwriting.

ARTSOUL: Many young artists often struggle with deciding which genre of music to pursue. Did you experience this struggle or did you always know you wanted to be a gospel artist?

KEYONDRA: My mom wouldn’t go for me singing secular music lol. But the healthy alternative, to me anyways, was urban gospel music. It’s always been my favorite type of gospel music. But truly, I’ve only wanted to sing gospel music. I felt it was part of my purpose. That may be deep for some, but that’s real.

ARTSOUL: You released your amazing song “Trouble Won’t Last” right at the start of the pandemic. The lyrics and melodic production instantly bring the listener to a place of refreshing in the midst of such a scary time. What was your vision for this song? How has music helped you during the effects of COVID-19?

KEYONDRA: What’s crazy is that I wrote that song as a testimony of God healing me vocally, that was the vision. But of course, it speaks to all troubles. The music most definitely came at the right time. Happily and sadly, TWL has pushed and propelled me as an artist but it troubles me at times how my success in this moment feeds off the woes of this world issue. But I’m so grateful that it’s encouraging the body and touching so many lives. That’s what music should do, it’s really helped me during this time to be pointed to God. Gospel music that is.

ARTSOUL: Speaking of COVID-19, so many artists have been struggling to stay creative with so many live events canceled. What’s been some of your favorite ways to stay creative and in touch in community during nationwide shut-downs?

KEYONDRA: I’ve always been taught to have many irons on the fire. So where my creativity may not be as seen or felt musically right now, I have other things like being an entrepreneur that keep me busy. My company that I share with my sister and mom, Jolie Noire, is an elevated leisure wear line. It keeps me going none stop. Pre pandemic, I was working on my EP coming soon.

ARTSOUL: We continue to celebrate your amazing accomplishment of a toy doll deal with The Kenya Doll brand in 2016! In light of the crucial racial climate in America today, what have you been doing to reinforce that black girl empowerment we’ve come to expect from you? Have you found it challenging being a black woman in this industry? If so, what have you done to maintain a positive outlook?

KEYONDRA: My brand, Jolie Noire which means Pretty Black in French, is in existence to affirm and validate black girls and women. So yes, I’m certainly reinforcing black girl empowerment. Will never stop that. It can be very challenging but knowing of the customers love and support keeps us going. That work isn’t music related but it’s yet apart of who I am.

In music, we see many other races celebrated and lifted based on color alone, and given the opportunity to soar. It’s really interesting but, I see with consistency and drive and maybe taking a bit longer, that it’s not necessarily people that keep your boat going. It’s God through you. That’s my positive outlook.

ARTSOUL: There has been a very controversial discussion going on regarding “cancel culture.” As a public figure and believer, what are your thoughts on this strategy? Do you think there is an effective way to deal with injustices done and mistakes made by people in the public eye?

KEYONDRA: The cancel culture has a spirit of the “I AM God” complex resting heavily on it! “I said it, and I ain’t taking it back” -Nene Leaks Lol It’s so true though. For a human to feel they have that much power to end a person, suggests a lot about that individual. If you feel the need to not support a celebrity or public figure etc. based on something they’ve done, just don’t support them. But to round up all the troops, if you will, and destroy that person and no mercy be given, is just wrong. I believe in righteously judging a matter, but I also believe in giving a couple chances too. That’s what God does.

ARTSOUL: Looking ahead to your upcoming projects, what artists/producers are you looking forward to collaborating with one day? Is there a different style you’d ever consider trying if you have the opportunity to experiment?

KEYONDRA: I have had the opportunity to experiment with country sounds. I’ve been in talks with an amazing producer friend about doing a gospel country album. So, think my Billboard Top 15 single Try to the 10th power on an album. That’s my country music style. I’d love to collaborate with PJ Morton one day. His approach to music/songwriting is dope.

ARTSOUL: What can we expect to see/hear from you coming up?

KEYONDRA: I have an EP that I’m getting prepped and ready to release called Cornerstone and a collaboration with 112’s Q Parker set to release later this year. I’m excited for you guys to hear it!
