3.12 Res at 9p ET

Vocalist Res (pronounced “Reese”) grew up listening to a broad spectrum of music; R&B and Soul, Psychedelic Rock and Folk in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Those early influences encouraged the development of her own distinct style, a sound that has consistently defied categorization and courageously refuses the constraints of fleeting trends. “Genre blending is where music is right now.” Res notes. “That’s what I do but, in a Rock ‘n’ Roll way. I will stick to this style until people catch back up with me.”

Res has worked with an impressive roster of award-winning artists including Mary J. Blige, Maxwell, Musiq Soulchild, John Mayer, and Alanis Morissette among others. Her debut album, How I Do, released in 2001, sold over 300,000 copies and offered an edgy rock-soul alternative to the neo-soul wave that dominated the era. How I Do represents a defining moment in music in which underdogs were celebrated, artificial celebrity was mocked and artists who boldly rebelled against conformity were embraced.

Everyone can relate to heartbreak, the angst of being an outsider, the ecstatic pleasure of standing confidently in your otherness. The lyrical prose and lush compositions featured in hit singles like They Say Vision or Golden Boys stand as timeless standards from a prolific catalog of relatable and vulnerable classics. Res’ songs are rally cries and triumphant anthems that declare see me, take me as I am or leave me alone to be great despite you.

Over a decade after the release of her debut album Res’ music maintains all the beauty and earnestness that initially captured the adoration of fans around the world. Don’t call it a comeback. Res never stopped making music. This is a reintroduction to a brilliant artist who has been quietly mastering her craft. During a forthcoming cross-country tour Res will showcase definitive hits, unreleased recordings, and new bangers with the same integrity, lyrical dexterity and feel good arrangements that solidified her stardom. You have to respect an artist who has committed her life to making real music at all costs.

2.23 Bette Smith at 10:45p ET

Born and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Bette Smith reconnected with her musical roots in Memphis and Mississippi – and fulfilled a promise to her late brother in the process. Recording her debut LP “Jetlagger” in Mississippi brought her to the core of the gospel she sang in church and the soul music she heard on hot summer nights growing up in Brooklyn. ‘Jetlagger’ – out now on Big Legal Mess Records, a Fat Possum subsidiary – is sprung from the “south coming to me, grabbing me and pulling me down there. The migration came up and got me. My southern neighbors in Bed-Stuy influenced me,” she notes. The breadth and scope of Bette’s 2018-19 touring has highlighted ‘Jetlagger’s’ rich, soulful charm as well as Bette’s power plant of energy. Billboard Magazine reflects on this joyful combustion, saying Bette “imbues tracks with shingly, sawtoothed texture capable of breaking off a high note with a throaty cry or scraping so low and wide that she threatens to put her bass player out of work.”
