Nov 2020 (New York, NY) — “Penny Lane”, the new release from singer/songwriter Jeff Lake and his classical music compadres in Cellophane Flowers, is available now on Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, and all the major music services. Hard copy CDs are also due to be released to retail in January.



Jeff Lake & Cellophane Flowers put a new spin on the music of The Beatles by turning to an older form of music — classical music!

The group replaces electric guitars with violins & cello for its core sound while adding traces of modern production, acoustic guitar & Lake’s smooth vocal delivery.  While tracks such as “Penny Lane” take a minimalistic baroque-era approach — string quartet & voice — other tracks such as “Within You Without You/ Tomorrow Never Knows” are a psychedelic joy ride. “Sugar Plum Lucy” is a delightful fusion of Tchaikovsky with elements of both The Beatles & Elton John versions of “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds”. And “Honey Pie” will transport you to the bygone era of cabaret & vinyl. Whether you’re a Beatle fan or not, this album is a fresh take on music written over 50 years ago. Cellophane Flowers of yellow & green forever.

Nov 2020 (New York, NY) — Watch the video for “Table”, the new release from rapper donSMITH, on YouTube now. The single is also available on Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, Apple Music and all the major services.

"Don't Ask Me Where I'm From" is the NEW soulful and culturally articulate full length from donSMITH. Concise in length, the 30 minute album is entirely produced by Zoomo, a soul sampler buzzing amongst the underground and Peter Rosenberg’s weekly real late night Hot 97 radio show.

With limited features from east coast artists like PayDay signee Radamiz, and D.C. 's quickly rising emcee Ankhlejohn, donSMITH proclaims his cultural pride and geographical commitment, especially at the hands of gentrification.

On tracks like “Piragua” & “NYCHA”, donSMITH is boldly emphasizing a central theme: for us, by us, while records like “donDADA” & “All I Got” give praise to the family and women birthed in the culture of uptown, New York City. 

This album acts as the centerpiece to donSMITH's soulful and politically charged duel EP’s “Dear Culture” & “Postscript", circling back to a central theme: “for us, by us”.

About donSMITH:

donSMITH is a 27 year old Harlem-bred artist and storyteller, illustrating the harsh realities and triumphs of his black and brown culture. Initially a producer and musician, donSMITH began to focus on the lyrical aspect of music.

Raw vulnerability and soulful storytelling are the backbone of donSMITH’s message, aiming to breed hope and fellowship among listeners, no matter where they are from.
