ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
P.E.A.C.E. is an Atlanta based keyboard funk artist, producer, and song writer. All songs are written by P.E.A.C.E. and he can be found on his website coctoentertainmentmusic.com. The CD is entitled Formulated Funk and brings back the old school tradition and new school funky guitar chords performed by Ricardo Bray of the Roger and Zapp Band. Also featured on the CD are the production and talk box sounds of Terry Zapp Troutman of the funk band Roger and Zapp on the song titled F.I.N.E. along with Bay area jazz artist, and producer Walter Earl of Lemmon House Productions. The lyrics are true to form of today’s life and needed to bring back peace and calm in such a destructive world of violence and hatred. P.E.A.C.E. wishes to bring just that peace to our society via his music and lyrics. So whether you like to dance to funky grooves or just lay back and listen to some nice instrumental music or ride and cruise to laid back gangster funk, or lounge around home to toast a glass of wine to that special love and romantic woman this CD is sure to provide for all genres and age groups. So keep your groove grinding on this talented artist CD. Real music is here to stay and to keep the radio airwaves peaceful and respectful. No doubt P.E.A.C.E. has true love for all from America to Brazil. P.E.A.C.E. has also performed in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil three years ago and also speaks a little Portuguese. His favorite fruits include mango, and coconut water from the tropics. So from me to you enjoy the CD. Some of the proceeds from the CD will go to war victims in Darfur, Africa and to disabled American Iraq war soldiers and families. Thanks for your purchase and peaceful heart. P.E.A.C.E. is now embarking on his new CD titled Social Conscience to be released in 2010. This CD is self produced and written and exudes the true essence of his production and crafty lyrical skills which is sometimes serious, social, funky, and romantic. The CD contains music tracks for the soul funksters, reggae, hip-hop, Brazilian romance, and family concepts. This artist just continues to blossom into great creative richness as time moves forward. P.E.A.C.E. performed his music on the beaches of Copacabana in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at the Cire Mole eatery on a very nice romantic Friday night during august 2008 in front of a crowd of 50-60 Brazilians and was well received. P.E.A.C.E. was a guest performer of Brazilian artist Jorge Guides on that very romantic Friday night. As the crowd applauds loudly P.E.A.C.E. thanks the audience with his very humble heart. As P.E.A.C.E. moves forward in his music/entertainment journey, the goal is to always remain humble and to speak his true life experiences and visions through his music and lyrics. Not to be out done P.E.A.C.E. is planning to release his 3rd CD in 2011 and then set his sights on touring, producing and writing for artist, movie directors, screen playwrights, T.V. and any other serious promising offers that God sends his way. Things are just now heating up for this artist and bigger things are sure to come. Brazil and Atlanta are dearest to his heart and he plans to reside in both for a lifetime marry have a family and settle down. Once again P.E.A.C.E. says thanks from the bottom of his heart in supporting his music and for the purchase of his music CD's and all P.E.A.C.E./Cocto Entertainment Music items. Peace and Blessings to you and your families. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ Who Strengthens Me.
P.E.A.C.E. (Peace Endureth All Challenges Everywhere)

Formulated Funk
Formulated Funk
by Nolan Briggs

Here is the eagerly anticipated debut CD by Atlanta musician/composer/keyboardist P.E.A.C.E., a true child of the funk who lists Roger Troutman and Zapp as one of his biggest influences. This powerful production is an interesting, eclectic, and original mix of musical styles geared toward the mature listener, though with a universal appeal. Although more than half the tracks feature vocals, music is clearly the focus on Formulated Funk and it is exciting to see an artist with talent work successfully with the different styles. P.E.A.C.E. (Peace Endureth All Challenges Everywhere) did all the songwriting and the majority of the production on the release, along with contributions by Terry Troutman and Ricardo Bray of the Zapp Band and Walter Earl of Lemmon House Productions.
Formulated Funk is an orderly progression through the various genres that are represented within. The first four tracks bring the funk beginning with the cool, “What’s Up”, the introduction to our P.E.A.C.E.-ful journey. I do not know if it will make mainstream radio, as it is not likely to fit the pigeon-holed programming formats of most urban stations, but it lets you know right away that if the rest of the CD is like this, it will be hot! That track and the next, “Sho Nuff” will probably have the most appeal to the hip hop heads. “F.I.N.E.” features the use of the voice box machine first made famous by Roger Troutman (of “I Wanna Be Your Man” and “Computer Love” fame), may he rest in peace, and is a great allusion to the beloved performer. The first transition is to more mainstream R&B on “Everybody Wants Peace” and “Beauty Queens”. Hopefully everybody wants P.E.A.C.E., in addition to peace, but I think that “Beauty Queens” is the best track on the CD, as well as being the shortest. Anyone who likes musiq soulchild will immediately identify with this one.
Starting with Track 7, “OOH Baby”, P.E.A.C.E. slows the tempo and reaches for the heart. The guitar begs and cries like on “Voyage to Atlantis” by the Isley Brothers, helping to make this a classic slow jam. The longest track, at 4:47 is “Why”, but the best of the ballads is unquestionably, “Lady”. The final transition is to a little jazzamatazz as Formulated Funk. wraps up with “Do You”, “N Tha Mood”, and “Black Kings Black Queens”, expertly done in the modern, smooth jazz style. Then it is time to hit repeat and be at P.E.A.C.E.again. And again. And again.
Another of the growing crop of exciting, independent artists, multi-talented funkster/crooner/producer P.E.A.C.E. is definitely one to keep your eye on. He is currently working on a follow-up CD, to be released in the next few months. Pick up Formulated Funk today on www.cdbaby.com.
