“Innovative, unrelenting and engaging; the essence of artistry.” — Larry B. Davis, Music Industry Veteran
“Live” is defined as “exciting; something very enjoyable, a word used to express how good something is or something happening that’s got a vibe”! “Live” is Live Hart and her music.
Singer/Songwriter Live Hart has built a strong following by connecting with her fans through live performances and heart-felt lyrics. She has opened for American Idol Winner David Cook and R&B Superstar Monica. She has appeared on The Daily Buzz Morning Show, has performed at the 2011/2012 Florida Music Festival (FMF) and has been nominated for Meer Music’s Effigy Award. Last Fall, Live released ‘Please Don’t Say It’s Over’; the first single off her upcoming album release which describes her journey back to love from a remorseful past “From the first cut on the album to the last – Real Music lives inside Live Hart”, Michael A. Saunders (Program Director WPGC-FM).
During the earlier stages of her career, Live was a part of a Pop/R&B girl group called Urbanesque. For four years the group performed all over Florida and Georgia and garnished the attention of hit producer Veit Renn (Nsync, Backstreet Boys), who signed them to his production company, Renn Music Productions (RMP) and later to his record label, Titanium Records. During the few years Urbanesque was together, they were nominated for Best New Artist and Best R&B Artist at the Orlando Music Awards. They were also featured on several mix tapes, showcased at The Macy’s Christmas Special in Atlanta, GA and enjoyed fame in the South East, before the girls decided to work on their own individual projects. Shortly after Live’s departure from the group, she continued to chronicle her experiences and with fierce determination and countless hours of devotion she taught herself to play the guitar.
Since then, Live has opened for Monica, Jagged Edge, American Idol Winner David Cook, Miki Howard, Cherrelle, Jon McLaughlin and more! She has also showcased at the 2010 Miami Music Festival (MMF) as well as appeared on The Morning Mix Radio Show (WOMX-FM) as a featured musical guest artist. Live has also worked with and has written songs for many artists. Her most recent rendering, ‘The Rain’, was recorded by newcomer Rachel Black. She has also been creatively linked to super soul/funk singer Honey Larochelle (Brand New Heavies, Macy Gray) and Shaun Fisher (Mandy Moore, Gloria Estefan) on several writing and recording projects. Live has already been recognized for some of the songs that are to appear on her upcoming album. Basement Soul Radio, an online streaming radio station playing the hottest in Hip-Hop/R&B/Soul, have added two singles, ‘What Is Love’ & ‘I’m Gone’, from Live’s most recent EP to their playlist. “The music is definitely soulful and I love her vocals. ‘What Is Love’ is hot and will be in rotation for awhile.” DJ X-Treme (Basement Soul Radio).
More of these songs are in the process of becoming a part of Live Hart’s first full-length album. Shaun Fisher is on board as producer and is working to further define and refine her Soul, R&B and Pop style into what they label as “Alternative Soul”.
A side from performing, Live also supports more serious causes which affect many women in our society. This past year Live and several other musicians performed at Phish Fest Entertainment’s Pinktober event held at Hard Rock Live (Orlando). This special event was in support of the fight against Breast Cancer which generated enough funds to provide several underprivileged women a free breast exam screening.
Through her live performances, heart-felt lyrics and her love for man-kind, Live continues to connect with fans through her music; creating a deep and soulful connection every time they meet.
