Ms. Blanco from The Bronx aka The Silent Celeb has solidified her spot as one of the best R&B artist to emerge in her time. Compelled by the likes of Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius, her voice and lyrical genius carry a truth and a confidence that lulls you in and keeps you coming back for more.
This past Saturday, The Silent Celeb was proud to present to us her long awaited EP, The Silent Celebrity Project, in which she held a private listening mixer hosted by actress and journalist, Jamila Mustafa and attended by press and media mavens alike.
The Silent Celebrity Project is a 6 track masterpiece full of R&B, soul, and things that go bump in the trunk. The project features production work from Liby V, The KindGenius, Illuxtrious Music and more, with appearances from fellow songwriter and singer Cocoa Sarai, rapper Zeyi and poet Da Ruddest Jones. With smooth fusion of R&B and hip-hop on the project, The Silent Celeb proves that she will be the phenom to keep the hip-hop soul flame burning.
The Silent Celebrity Project is available to stream directly on Soundcloud.
