  • (1888PressRelease) October 22, 2010 - Tokyo, Japan - Today, SWEET SOUL RECORDS, parent company lifesound, Inc., officially announced that an agreement has be reached with their US-based partners, A&R Management, for distribution of "the diva to be," Amber Ojeda's debut album "Here I Am."

    Amber's music is vintage but with a modern flare, and her sultry and subtle vibrato is nostalgic of the 1930's and 40's. However it's her effortless ability to lace Jazz & Neo-Soul with Hip Hop undertones that will have even the biggest skeptics bobbing their heads in approval. You can also hear Amber's music featured on Style networks "Dress My Nest" as well as countless podcasts and indie stations worldwide.

    "Amber Ojeda's stellar debut titled "Here I Am" is the aural equivalent of an appetizer that fills and satisfies. Replete with excellent melody, funky beats and rhythm that flows, it is a crisp cornucopia of melody we can all appreciate." says DJ Come of Age.

    DJ COA went on to say, "Accept my testimony that "Ladylike" is a track which merits heavy rotation. We hope that this is only the beginning, an independent release reinforcing the Nu, the Neo, the Soul Movement. Label it what you wish but as commercial RnB falls short, you owe it to yourself to add some zest to your collection. Amber Ojeda will do more than whet the appetite, she will fulfill."

    Michael Harris, SWEET SOUL RECORDS Senior Manager added, "I would like to thank Sharon Holleran of A&R Management for making this happen, and that we look forward to working A&R in the future. For Amber, I can only see a bright future for this young, talented lady. She is on the international stage now, so with our promotional skills, I am certain that we will expand her fan base not only in Japan but on a global scale."

    "Here I Am" will be released in Japan under the SWEET SOUL RECORDS label in mid-December 2010.
