The smooth sounds of R&B singers Ro James and the lovely Marsha Ambrosius mesmerized a crowd in Coney Island Brooklyn Friday night (Sept 8th).
James who was raised on a mix of gospel music and studied the likes of Donnie Hathaway, Johnny Cash and Prince, James has created a unique blend of R&B soul all his own. He is credited on Miguel’s song “Use Me,” and has worked with Asher Roth, and toured with Luke James. His hit single, “Permission” (2015) topped the Hip-Hop and R&B charts, as did his 2016 debut album, Eldorado, which reached #8 on the US Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Charts.
The British songstress Marsha Ambrosius knows a little something about writing great songs. Whether it’s as one half of Floetry, on her chart-topping solo debut Late Nights & Early Mornings or her career as an acclaimed songwriter/producer, her observations on love and life paired with her soulful and honest vocals flip the personal into a universal truth.
