The road to redemption is paved with shadows of the past, but those who are able to see greatness at the end of this road shine brightly, even through the darkest shade. A man with a troubled youth, Duncan Morley is now on a righteous path and blue skies are ahead. With the help of The Boss himself, Rick Ross, and the team at Blue Sapphire Music Group who are working hard to make things happen, Morley is gearing up to make his worldwide debut with his first single, "Find You Now", and set the entertainment business ablaze.
For Morley, growing up was a learning experience for both him and his parents. Raised in the Northeast city of Boston, MA, he was the kind of kid who was always causing trouble. He was an Indigo child that was always thinking outside the box...including in his schemes. After stealing a friend's mom's car and entering a high-speed chase with the authorities, his parents thought it was time for some corrective education.
Although most attempts to subdue the fire in his soul were null (he was sent to all kinds of alternative correctional facilities, ranging from wilderness programs to military school), one habit he picked up in the woods has stayed with him to this day: meditation. In his own words, "the more you do it, the brighter and brighter you become," and brighter has he shined. Since picking up meditation, Morley studied studio recording in Los Angeles, where he uncovered his love for pop music and culture, as well as his passion to positively influence people around him. Morley has been catching a lot of attention within the industry and has now teamed up with one of the biggest name in the music industry, Rick Ross
Ross, a Grammy-nominated rapper, entrepreneur and founder of Maybach Music Group, is determined to bring Morley's talents to the forefront of pop culture. He invited this new artist to his mansion in Atlanta, GA where described him as having "the presence of a king."
"Find You Now" came about as a result of this relationship, featuring The Boss on a verse and in the music video. The song holds a deep meaning beneath the surface. Externally about a lost love, Morley's wordplay hints at a spiritual backbone searching for mindfulness in the present moment.
Westmont, California Rapper Benji Stone is back with another heartfelt track.

Rising Neo-Soul polymath XamVoloreleases new single Lose Love, the first track to be taken from his upcoming debut EP A DAMN FINE SPECTACLE.
Written and produced by XamVolo during sessions in LA alongside heavyweight producer Freddie Joachim (J Cole, Aloe Blacc, Joey Bada$$), Lose Love’s bouncing groove opens up the EP. Released via Universal on the 13th April, A Damn Fine Spectacle is an inventive concept EP and serves as a teasing distillation of what is to be explored on his forthcoming debut album, All The Sweetness on the Surface.
A testament to XamVolo’s cinematic method of creating worlds within his music, across four songs, it tells a neo-noir story of a young girl who finds herself confronted with a hive containing a black honey substance, (which XamVolo has named ‘Slaize’) that can grant her every desire.
XamVolo explains “Everybody wants something, whether it’s money, power, justice, a clean slate, or a new pair of shoes. Some people would go to great lengths to acquire the things they want, but whenever there's an easier option available, most people would rather save themselves the hassle. This EP [and the album to follow] are all about the nature of our desires. When someone is told of this black honey – of an easy way to obtain everything they’ve ever wanted – their curiosity is piqued.”
