Atlanta Soundtrack: New tune movies from Aryeé the Gem, Blade and extra

Aryeé the Gem | To It

Born in Wisconsin, Aryeé The Gem moved south to Cellular when she was once somewhat child, then made her solution to Atlanta — which she’s now made her inventive house — for varsity at Clark Atlanta College. A classically skilled vocal efficiency primary, Aryeé is a flexible instrumentalist as neatly, having realized saxophone and violin whilst rising up. 

This monitor is the primary unmarried from her drawing close prolonged play, which is about to be launched this summer time. Aryeé stated in a remark that she gravitated towards her present taste of artistry as a result of “R&B and soul tune convey me pleasure. It’s been that guiding mild all the way through my complete lifestyles.” (Photograph through Andrew Salama)


Victoria Blade | Simple In combination

Ah, summer time . . . a time to romp across the park, get misplaced and goof round. In that spirit, we have now the newest paintings from actor/musician Victoria Blade, who lately left Atlanta for the Town of Angels. 

Her newest tune video seems to had been filmed at Los Angeles landmark Griffith Park’s creepy, deserted, turn-of-the-Twentieth-century zoo. Like L.A., Atlanta is filled with all these haunted-feeling empty filming places. It’s what makes the 2 towns relatives! So we’re happy that Blade will have to be feeling proper at house. Right here, she and her band have a laugh leaping rope, spinning and enjoying their tools — all in line with the theme of breaking loose. Be sure you stay an eye fixed out for Blade’s TV paintings, the place she seems on such displays as Swarm and WandaVision.


Blind Willie McTell | Brokedown Engine Blues

Somebody within the blues in Atlanta will inform you to take a look at Blind Willie’s on North Highland Street, which has stood as a hub for the most productive native and traveling artists of the style since 1986. However do you know that the namesake of the joint rose to prominence in Georgia virtually a century in the past?

Born William Samuel McTier in Thomson, Georgia, proper across the flip of the twentieth century, the artist who would later make a reputation for himself as Blind Willie McTell was once a pioneer of the Piedmont blues — along with his dexterity at the 12-string and slide guitars and his velvety tenor voice rolling in the course of the airwaves. (And, sure, his nickname got here from the truth that he was once born blind in a single eye.)

His musical legacy and affect is all over the place. A couple of examples: The Allman Brothers Band famously coated his tune, “Statesboro Blues,” and Bob Dylan penned the tribute track, “Blind Willie McTell,” in 1983, greater than two decades after McTell’s demise in Milledgeville in 1959.

And, hello, someone who’s pushed down our truthful town’s pothole-ridden streets can most likely relate to the lyrics of our Antique Observe of the Week, which launched again in 1933: “Really feel like a broke down engine, mama / Ain’t were given no drivin’ wheel; lord have mercy.” What’s an afternoon in Atlanta with out that sentiment?
