Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the release of the “Brooklyn feat. Paula Sheniece” Music Video by The Seal Breakers. The project, presented by Coast 2 Coast Video Distribution, is now available for view on YouTube.
The Seal Breakers are a contemporary gospel, jazz, soul-R&B and hip-hop group from New York City formed in 2001. This group features rappers, vocalists, brass horns, keyboards, guitars, and percussion to create a huge sound that not only plays on the rich American roots music tradition but combines everything exciting about today's modern artists. The Seal Breakers have a strong appreciation for their experience growing up in the gritty streets of New York city because it has made them and their music what it is today. If it wasn't for their involvement in music, many in the band would have fallen victim to the crime, poverty and violence of the tough urban jungle.
The Seal Breakers leader Craig Williams, who had written, produced, and performed with many notable artists in the 90’s; sought to combine his early musical influences of the brass horn music that he heard in his church with his love for legendary bands like Earth, Wind and Fire, The Ohio Players, Chicago, and Sly and the Family Stone. Since Craig Williams began The Seal Breakers they have been blessed to perform and/or record with many notable soul, jazz and gospel artists nationally and internationally. In March 2007 the band was honored to record a soundtrack for the documentary film “Bowl of Dreams” at the insistence of Dr. Bill Cosby who was literally blown away by The Seal Breakers’ performance at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn N.Y. The band travels throughout the U.S. playing at concert halls, schools, music festivals, colleges/universities and civic functions, spreading the message of love and hope through music.
The song “Brooklyn” highlights the tenacity of the people of Brooklyn. The fat horns, great singing by singer Paula Shaniece, hip hop vibe, and lyrics reminiscent of the best in the soul music tradition convey to its listeners “that Brooklyn is more than just a borough, it’s a lifestyle." The song pays homage to their city as well as fallen hip hop artist Notorious BIG, who was a friend of Craig Williams, and hip hop icon Jay-Z, who grew up in the same tough projects as many of the guys in the group. The digital release of the single was May 7th 2013 on ITunes, Amazon, Spotify and wherever digital music is sold. For more information, check out The Seal Breakers on their Official Website.
