Nataly's Corner is thrilled to present music from the lovely and gracious songstress, Helen Rogers, on the Channel. Her recent album âSmooth Jazz Meets Reggaeâ was released in November 2015, under the Skinny Bwoy Records label, and is packed with groove sounds to appropriately entertain with everything from smooth & chill jazz to dance to reggae. The album has received high praise from several well-known smooth jazz critics such as SMOOTH JAZZ RIDE and SMOOTH JAZZ THERAPY. Paul Hardcastle fans are very familiar with this songbird. When you listen to the vocals on tracks from earlier series of the Jazzmasters, you instantly know its Helen and you're captivated by her smooth and sultry voiceâ¦like a moth to a flame, as they say. I miss the Paul and Helen music collaborationsâ¦but I'm certainly glad to know Helen is recording her own musicâ¦with those sultry vocalsâ¦singing in the way that only she can!
Yes, Fans can recognize her voice on a Hardcastle trackâ¦but here are some things they may not know about Helen Rogers: Helen was singing and performing long before she met Paul Hardcastle. She began singing in 1978 with One Stop Music, an independent South London label known for reggae music. Helen met Paul through her association as the Lead Singer for British funk band, Direct Drive, in the 1980s. The Band's successful singles, âAnythingâ & âABC [Falling in Love's Not Easy], peaked on several U.K. charts. In her earlier years with Paul, she provided backup vocals to his remix of Third Worlds âNow That We Found Loveâ and his version of Junior Walker's âWalk in the Nightâ. Helen actually co-wrote, as well as, sang lead vocals and recorded on five of the Jazzmasters series [I thru 5]â¦and we all know how successful Jazzmasters has been, with numerous top billboard chart-ranks in the U.S. and in Japan. Helen also recorded several compilations with Paul Hardcastleâ¦âThe Smooth Cuts with Helen Rogersâ is one of my favorites. Helen's BIO states that she always had a fondness for the âlover's rockâ reggae style music. Between 2003 and 2011, Helen recorded reggae covers of 1970s top hits with the band Black Steel and a Lover's Rock solo album with renowned producer Lindel Lewis. In 2008, Helen had released her first EP âEyes like Midnightâ.
