Cordula Davis

Singer/Songwriter Cordula hails from the DMV and brings with her a wealth of musical and performance training, creating a polished yet very natural presence on stage and in her personal engagements with her fans.  Cordula’s new single “My Ride,” on her own imprint Music’z Therapy distributed via Universal/Fontana, is set for release Tuesday, September 10, 2013 and is sure to be a fan favorite.  Already capturing radio and music executives’ attention and energy, Cordula is positioned to be one of the breakout artist of the year.

A stunning natural beauty, Cordula’s music overshadows that aspect as she effortlessly weaves between the husky low alto and sharp soprano scales, presenting a musical adventure not to be missed.  Ok, so I have to confess that I am a fan of great music and perhaps I sway to the less journalistic in my description but hey, this IS The H.Y.P.E. Magazine which means, “How You Perceive Everything” and MY perception is that no matter how great her look…Cordula’s SOUND can be likened to one of the most pleasurable “ooohhhh DAMN!” moments you have ever had in your life.
Artistic talent not withstanding, Cordula is also the subject of one of the greatest quandaries in the music business right now. She is a medical doctor who also teaches up and coming medical doctors, that sings like a nightingale and desires to let the music take over and be her vehicle of expression.  My mom always said being a doctor was as good as being president, but Cordula’s heart had been with music and performing since she was three years old, when she began tap and ballet training.

Managed by Robert Terell aka “The Official Deal Maker” and one of the shining diamonds of his Wealth Nation Entertainment roster, Cordula has been brought along at just the right pace to be an impact on the music industry when it is the most quiet as regards real artistry.  Wealth Nation Entertainment guided and orchestrated Cordula’s label situation with Universal/Fontana, and her imprint Music’z Therapy is not only to be a vehicle for her music, but also a home for other artists in the future.

Interview: Pop MC Hazel-E Lays Down the ‘Girl Code’ – Yahoo! Voices – voices.yahoo.com.

Hazel-E arrives at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards

Who’s popping up everywhere, not because she’s popping OUT everywhere, but just because her style, creativity and music are getting attention?! HAZEL-E, baby!

Coming seemingly out of nowhere, Hazel-E has really been in the mix on several different fronts of the entertainment industry for quite some time. Beginning on the business side of the music industry as a publicist, this intelligent Pop MC aka Valley Girl , is a complete package. Style, class, lyrics and a huge fun loving spirit that shows in her interviews, red carpet appearances at the Billboard Awards, BET Awards, etc., and if you haven’t seen the videos, you are missing something!

My conversation with the sensational Hazel-Ewas one of those direct and to the point moments between an artist and interviewer where the artist really has to think and the interviewer has to stay on top of the conversation in order to keep up! Quick witted, slick tongued and comfortable with herself, Hazel-E lets us have it bare bones and uncut.

I first became aware of this artist via record she did with one of the Texas hip hop legends, Slim Thug, the song was called “Strip” and was one of the singles she put out via Houston, TX record label Swisha House. She told me it is an “ode to the strippers of the world.”

Hazel-E indicated that her experience with her former label was “a positive learning experience.” “I enjoyed my time with Swisha House but the deal was limited and I am moving forward as an independent artist.” she continued.
