Solange Knowles Brings Out the Fresh in Music with New Saint Heron Compilation

Solange Knowles happens to be one of the most captivating artistic beauties in the game to me. She's a beau of a different breed, always going in the different direction. Solange recently  started what I'd like to consider a whole movement of good music, and great energy in the form of her new company St. Records. Allowing for other incredibly fresh artists the opportunity for more exposure, Solange has made a compilation album featuring some of the best the industry has to offer.

The project entitled, Saint Heron puts the spotlight on some really great talent. The record features the likes of India Shawn (who is no stranger to this site), Jhene Aiko, Kelela, Star Child, Cassie, and more. The music on this project is something like a complete melodic journey. Mountains and valleys of pure soul and rhythm pull listeners in to every song. Music lovers are discovering artists they never knew existed thanks to this ingenious move on Solange's part.

The whole Saint Records movement didn't start with this project alone. Solange has created a webspace dedicated to the whole energy of good music and light that she embodies. The site's blog features short odes to artists who have impacted her and other creatives in major ways. She's shown love to artists like Brandy, Kim Burrell, and Aaliyah for their heavy influences in music. Solange is making sure to develop a platform that highlights the new and fresh sounds of today, but also tributes the ground breakers of yesterday, tis' why I am so here for it all.

Be sure to get Saint Heron now and pay close attention to what Solange is doing. This is gold. Solid.
