     Georgia Anne Muldrow is a dope emcee/vocalist/producer from the Left Coast.  She has been on the underground scene dropping knowledge with thought-provoking bars for years.  She is signed to the underground haven Stones Throw Records, included in a family of like-minded musicians such as Madlib, Dudley Perkins and others.  Her discography includes the following joints:  The Worthnothings EP, Olesi-Fragments Of An Earth, Umsindo, Early, and Kings Ballad (her most recent offering).  If you haven't listened to her music, open your minds and ears, because what she has to offer you will not find in the mainstream, and for good reason.  The mainstream is not ready for an artist, someone with integrity and no boundaries, especially from someone with estrogen coarsing through her system.  Ms. Muldrow has the pedigree, however, to enlighten those that will listen;  her father is the late jazz guitarist Ronald Muldrow and mother is singer/songwriter Rickie Byars-Beckwith.

     I've been aware of Georgia Anne Muldrow for a few years now, but am now just feeling that positive vibe that she has been putting forth in her musical creations.  I'm looking to have a few good listeners come along for the spiritual journey that Ms. Muldrow is taking us on with her music.  A good example of her music can be noticed on the Mos Def collaboration "Roses Part II" from his latest album The Ecstatic.  From what I gather, Mos Def liked Georgia Anne's original version after listening to some of her music during a Left Coast excursion that he insisted on having the song (with his lyrical contribution) on his album.  I'm looking for more collaborations in the near and distant future.  In the meantime, here is a link to her original "Roses" from her album Umsindo.

Give me some feedback on what you think of Georgia Anne Muldrow.  She's a very dope artist with a voice and beats that need to be heard!
