On June 9, Georgia Anne Muldrow will be touching the stage of the New Parish along with her label mate and beau, Dudley Perkins. Muldrow will be performing a selection of her most notable songs that include “Run Away,” “Roses” and “Seeds” as well as some newer work, both solo and collaborations with Perkins. The self-proclaimed “instrument of the ancestors’” style is best described as electro-funk-jazz-fusion Hip Hop, a sound that is familiar yet incomparable.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Muldrow has done some notable work with the likes of J* DaVey, Spinz and Sa-Ra and is known for playing most of the instruments featured on her tracks. Her skills as a composer have been praised on NPR, in the Toronto Star and on popular websites like turntablelab.com. Conscious hip-hop icon, Mos Def exclaims, “She’s incredible. She’s like Flack, Nina Simone, Ella, she’s something else. She’s like religion. It’s heavy, vibrational music. I’ve never heard a human being sing like this. Her voice is wildly, finely expressive. It’s so singular. It’s hip-hop, the way that she approaches it rhythmically, she’s got so many jazz influences. It’s something else and you can just feel it."
With the late jazz guitarist, Ronald Muldrow as her father, Rev. Michael Beckwith as her stepfather and Rickie Byars - Beckwith, the musical director of the Agape Spiritual Center in Culver City, California, as her mother, it's easy to see where Muldrow gets her eclectic style from. Her discography is extensive and contains over a dozen different projects tracing at least as far back as 2006.
Dudley Perkins aka Declaime is one of premier beatsmith, Madlib’s favorite collaborators. When Madlib drops the funk, Declaime is a preferred lyricist for the final product. As an MC, Perkins has released deep, intuitive and content laden rhymes. With a vocal tone that occasionally reminds one of a more subdued ODB, Perkins is instinctively conscious yet fun spirited when he rocks the mic. He has a solid catalogue that features a number of collaborations with his significant other, Georgia Anne Muldrow including 2007’s G & D.
