Robert Cotnoir (Grapefruit Sound Lab) BIO
With influences ranging from quintessential freestyle, electro and house, to classic rock and back again through the classical repertoire, New York native Robert Cotnoir has seamlessly honed a sound that is at once both comforting and familiar, all while being undoubtedly of the times. His songwriting is pensive, self-referential and philosophical with themes about pleasure seeking, wandering souls, loss, pride, jealousy, redemption, salvation and the struggle between faith and fact, spirit and mind, good and evil. Riding the success of a distinguished career as one of Hollywood’s top award-winning motion picture music editors, Robert is honored and humbled by his collaboration with Amuka, Sarah Naughton, Gina Volpe and everyone who has contributed their time and talent to this project. He is looking forward to what the future has in store, especially the release of the full-length Grapefruit Sound Lab album Eight Days Across America on vinyl.
Even in a musical landscape packed with diva vocalists, Sheila Brody stands apart. From disco-era funk to chart-topping dance hits including hitting #1 on Billboard, the petite powerhouse brags an epic career spanning musical genres and generations like few others. Discovered by George Clinton, the one and only Godfather of Funk made Brody a member of The Brides of Funkenstein. There, she sang lead on Never Buy Texas from a Cowboy, which Rolling Stone named “One of the 50 Coolest Albums of All Time.” Since then, Brody has worked with everyone from Bootsy Collins and the P-Funk All-Stars to John Mellencamp and Rick James. She boasts vocal collaborations with artists as diverse as groundbreaking rappers Public Enemy and late electronica icon Peter Rauhofer. Under the stage name Amuka, the Detroit native logged six Billboard Top 10 hits – including U Ain’t That Good, Craving, I Want More (Cling on to Me), My Man, Destination (We Are the Ones), and the No. 1 hit single Appreciate Me. Amuka is thrilled to be working with Robert Cotnoir of Grapefruit Sound Lab, who she calls “a gem.” Amuka and Robert are excited to have three singles hitting the airwaves, including their Billboard-charting breakout anthem Don’t Fall For It, A Song About Freedom and Love Cards.
