Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits – Live at 20 Front Street combines soul, jazz, and funk with Motown / Northern Soul classics, original songs, and stories celebrating soul music heroes. The album will be released on all digital platforms in conjunction with a release show at 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI on March 16th, 2019.

At the age of 19, Drew Schultz entered the music industry as the touring drummer with Motown legends, the Four Tops. He has performed on stage with artists including Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Gladys Knight, The Miracles, Dramatics, Contours, Jerry Butler, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, and many more. Drew’s “Back To Class” project is a series of his own original songs and recordings with 50% of profits benefiting Detroit Public School music programs featuring artists including the Four Tops, members of The Funk Brothers, Melvin Davis, Spyder Turner, Pat Lewis, Carolyn Crawford, Dennis Coffey, Lenny Pickett of Tower of Power / SNL, Joe “Pep” Harris, Chairmen of the Board, Willie Jones, James Jamerson Jr., Reginald Torian of The Impressions, and many more. As a Pre-Production Engineer for Universal/Motown Records, he has credits on projects by Michael Jackson / The Jackson 5, David Ruffin & Jimmy Ruffin, and the Cellarful of Motown series. His audio production has led to work with Questlove of the Roots during a New York University “Classic Albums” college course, and Maurice White of Earth, Wind, & Fire. He is a published contributor to Modern Drummer Magazine, a Program Manager at the Motown Museum and a college professor of drums, songwriting, and music industry studies at the Detroit Institute of Music Education.

Recorded on stage in 2018, Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits – Live at 20 Front Street celebrates many of Schultz’s heroes. The album is a combination of songs Drew has written for his “Back To Class” series as well as live renditions of the classic hits by the legends that Schultz has worked with. Interspersed within the music are stories told about Schultz’s career and some of the lessons learned from his idols and mentors. The concert was recorded in front of a sold out crowd at 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI. The venue is an award winning intimate concert space that has been voted as one of the top Listening Rooms in the country hosting winners of the Voice, American Idol, and Grammy winning artists just in its first two years.

The music on this live record is a combination of the hook-oriented songwriting that Schultz strives to create, blended with improvisational solos. In the spirit of the jazz players who influenced Motown’s own Funk Brothers backing band, Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits deftly move through multiple genres and switch between tight grooves and exploratory instrumental improv sections. The Broken Habits consist of some of the Motor City’s finest musicians. Lead vocalist Trish Shandor is an award winning singer and educator who has performed with Gloria Estefan and toured with Ben Folds, while singing in countless groups that cover the spectrum of jazz, pop, classical, broadway, and opera. She has been an artist in residence at the Michigan Opera Theater, worked at the Detroit Opera House, and teaches at Michigan State University’s Community Music School. Guitarist Carlton Washington is a graduate of Berklee College of Music who has been touring the world with Detroit’s Queen of the Blues, Thornetta Davis, as well as performing with icons including Larry McCray and Ian Siegal. He brings a blues sensibility to the Motown and Soul Music performed by the Broken Habits. Bassist Matt Ryan comes from a musical family, and brings his virtuosic improvisation to the group’s jazz/soul sound. Matt’s background as a marching drummer and drum line instructor lend his bass playing a wide rhythmic vocabulary. Keyboardist Mike Harrison is steeped in jazz and classic R&B, and gigs consistently in the Detroit area with groups including his own outfit, Strictly Fine. His versatility on guitar, bass, and vocals allows him to make musical choices that compliment every instrument while also offering inventive solo sections.

Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits – Live at 20 Front Street will be released on all digital streaming and download platforms in conjunction with an album release show at the 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI on Saturday, March 16th, 2019.

The Chordettes fueron un cuarteto femenino de pop, que cantaban generalmente a capella, especializado en la música popular tradicional. Fueron uno de los grupos vocales de más larga duración, con inicio en la corriente principal del pop y armonías vocales de la década de 1940 y principios de 1950.Originalmente cantaban música popular al estilo de The Weavers, pero con el tiempo cambiaron a un estilo de armonización del tipo conocido como barbershop o close harmony.

Arthur Godfrey descubrió al grupo en su programa de radio Arthur Godfrey´s Talent Scouts, pasando a ser fijas durante los años 1950 y 1954. En 1953, el director musical de Godfrey y director musical, Archie Bleyer, funda la compañía Cadence Records que realizaría grabaciones de los cantantes y grupos que habían pasado por el programa, incluidas The Chordettes.

Su primer gran éxito fue Mister Sandman en 1954, del que se vendieron más de un millón de copias. A este éxito le siguieron otros muchos durante los años 1950 y 1960, a menudo con versiones de canciones de rock y R & B.

NORTHERN SOUL – FREDA PAYNE – ‘ON EASY STREET’

FREDA PAYNE (born 1942, Detroit, Michigan) is an American singer and actress best known for her million selling, 1970 hit single, “Band of Gold”.
Freda Payne grew up listening to different jazz singers, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. As a teenager, she attended the Institute of Musical Arts; she soon began singing radio commercial jingles, and took part in (and won many of) local TV and radio talent shows.
In 1963, she moved to New York and worked with many different entertainers, including Quincy Jones, Pearl Bailey, and Bill Cosby. The following year, her debut album, a jazz recording entitled After the Lights Go Down Low and Much More!!!, was released on the Impulse! label.
In 1966, she released her second album “How Do You Say I Don’t Love You Anymore”, for MGM Records. Although it is regarded primarily as a jazz album, there are also several covers of pop songs featured, including the Beatles’ hit “Yesterday,” “Let It Be Me,” the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Feeling Good,” and “If You Love Me (Really Love Me).” Produced by legendary Tom Wilson (Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa and Simon and Garfunkel), the album garnered belated respect as several cuts from this LP picked up spins from several Northern Soul DJ’s ( “Sad Sad September” and “Too Late”) the most notable being the uptempo syncopated, version “On Easy Street” (Larry Weiss and Fred Anisfield) which was a monster for DJ/dancer Keb Darge at Stafford’s Top Of The World allnighter in 1985. Also, arranged and conducted by Benny Golson, jazz tenor saxophonist. “Easy Street” is popular with the dancers, with parts of the arrangement being similar to the breaks in Smokey Robinson’s “Going to a Go-Go” and, the big city theme of Tony Hatch’s “Downtown”.
Payne also made occasional guest appearances on different television shows including The Merv Griffin Show and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
Freda even added theatrical credits to her repertoire; she understudied Leslie Uggams for the Broadway show “Hallelujah Baby” in 1967, and appeared with the Equity Theatre in a production of “Lost in the Stars”.
In 1969, Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Edward Holland, Jr., persuaded her to sign with their newly-formed record label Invictus. During that same year, her first Invictus single, “Unhooked Generation” (a minor R&B hit), was released. Shortly thereafter, songwriters Holland/Dozier/Holland, under the pen name ‘Edith Wayne and Ron Dunbar’ offered her a song entitled “Band of Gold”. In early 1970, the song became an instant pop smash reaching #3 in the U.S. and #1 in the UK; it also gave Payne her first gold record. Global sales were estimated at two million. An album of the same name proved to be fairly successful as well.
Other Invictus singles included “Deeper and Deeper”, “You Brought the Joy”, and the Vietnam War protest song “Bring the Boys Home” (U.S. Billboard Hot 100 #12, 1971; her second gold record). Her other Invictus albums were Contact (1971), The Best of Freda Payne (1972, a compilation which included four new, unissued songs), and her last Invictus album Reaching Out (1973).
In 1973 she left Invictus and recorded albums for ABC/Dunhill and Capitol, but she never found the commercial success that she had enjoyed with Invictus. She recorded a duet “I Wanna See You Soon” with Capitol stablemates Tavares, which was a radio airplay hit in the UK in 1977.

On April 22, 2009 Freda appeared on American Idol and sang “Band of Gold”.
