Groove Stu Bio


Channeling influences such as The Isley Brothers, Earth Wind and Fire, Prince, and Mint Condition, Groove Stu brings back the art of real vocals and live instrumentation. A self contained group of writers, producers, and performers, Groove Stu has been sharing their gift of music on stages throughout the world since 1999. In 2003, Groove Stu released it's first album, Authentic 4.10 Sessions, independently to critical acclaim. Not content to play it safe, GS chose to showcase it's versatility by making an album that crossed several genres including hip hop, soul, jazz, and reggae. With the completion of the album, GS sought out to promote the product by doing what they do best. Performing live. GS has shared stages with such acts as Frankie Beverly and Maze, Boyz II Men, Erykah Badu, Mint Condition, Jeffrey Osborne, Raheem DeVaughn and Kindred the Family Soul to name a few. In 2006 they released their live concert DVD, Live and Direct From Baltimore. GS took a few years off from performing to create their brand new album Artofficial Substance, scheduled to release on September 18th, 2012. The album contains a wealth of material drawn from the personal life experiences of each member. Recognizing a lack of substance in today's music, GS felt compelled to write lyrics of self reflection and love meant to inspire and motivate. Whether live or on record, Groove Stu continues in the tradition of legendary artists of the past whose music allowed you to get your groove on but also delivered a message in the process.


The new album of Groove Stu is entitled "Artofficial Substance". You will find sixteen sweet tracks on the album including the interlude of "Thing Called Love". It is a great follow up of the "Authentic 4.10 Sessions" album.

Groove Stu members are: keyboardist/singer Omar Sharif, vocalist Jerrod Simpson, saxophonist Brandon Moultrie and multi-instrumentalist and drummer Robert Levine. This quartet has found a great blend of music to keep the groove going. Hiphop,soul,jazz,pop,funk and rock are the elements of the album "Artofficial Substance".

The albums starts with the excellent love song "Thing Called Love". It sets the tone for the rest of the album. The lyrics are great, Omar Sharif has a lovely voice and the meldody is perfect. In "Make Believe" the rhythmically swaying harmonies on the hiphop beat will make you feel so good. The perfect R&B song on the album is "Perfect Time" with vocalist Jerrod Simpson. It is lovely to dream away on the tracks "Where I Wanna Be" and "Places". If you wanna get down on it you have to listen to "Get Right". A brilliant track a bit in the style of Earth Wind and Fire is "Celebration". It gets funky on it. But you can really hype the funk in "Come & Go With Me".
