Don't mess with Nadir and Mayaeni! They're both gone "95 Miles Down the Road" with a song that's as hot as your mama's skillet on Sunday morning! That's right, the two singer/songwriters get together to break it apart musically in the second chapter from The Book of Jonah. NPR's New Soul Sunday called it the best collaboration of the year. The flip side takes us deep into the "Belly of the Whale". And what does that mean? Listen and find out... MORE ABOUT NADIR: The music that flows from the mind and soul of Nadir Omowale simply defies genre classification. R&B, Rock, Funk, Hip Hop and Jazz are spun into such a heady mix through his recordings and performances, that the listener no longer has any interest in limits or labels. Nadir's music represents the evolution and celebration of an ancient blues credo, in that it tells stories from the heart, for the heart. It is also a reflection of all that is funky and joyful. MORE ABOUT MAYAENI: From Detroit to London, Sierra Leone to New York to LA, Mayaeni (pronounced (mah-YAY-knee) has traveled far and wide. The daughter of a West African mother and a Jewish father - a former guitar player who played with Sylvester, Carl Carlton and Jimmy Ruffin - Mayaeni has had no shortage of influences to draw from. In May 2011 Mayaeni completed Cold Love, an acoustic self-produced 6-track EP with guitarist Steve Caldwell. An industry-only showcase in London resulted in her signing a worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV in August 2011. In September 2011 her song 'Broken Glass' was prominently featured in the CBS smash hit Hawaii Five-0, (Season 2, Episode 2). Her song 'Nothing Inside' with DJ Sander Van Doorn (co-written with Justin Parker of Lana del Rey's 'Video Games' fame) hit #1 on Cool Cuts, the DMC Buzz Chart, and the Beatport Overall Chart in June 2012. Performed for the first time at Ultra in Miami in March in front of over 25,000 people, 'Nothing Inside' has become a breakout summer 2012 hit in numerous countries, including the Netherlands Top 40. BBC Radio 2 added 'Nothing Inside' to it's playlist in June. Mayaeni signed with Roc Nation in September 2012 and is at work on her first major label album.
