There are some great things happening at SOBO Magazine these days! The independent publication created by Christopher and Georgette Whaley has been on a roll since their debut in May of 2006 and show no signs of slowing down. In June of this year, the website - www.sobomag.com - got off to a launch with an interview from dance diva CeCe Peniston who spoke in depth about her career and her love of good soul food. The Dynamic Duo then traveled to Nashville, Tennessee where Tim Dillinger was recording his upcoming gospel project and presented the soul man with the very first SOBO Magazine Music Award for his outstanding CD, The Muse. In July, the issue, "Meet the Bands" dropped featuring Mint Condition, Ta'Niq, Collective Hallucination, Brown Baby Girl, and the Family Stand to much acclaim.
SOBO is well known for featuring musicians so for the September-October issue, they decided to do something different by highlighting artists who are talented by ways of the pen. "The Writers Block" issue features such prominent writers as Kim Fields, Aaron Coleman, and the incomparable Nikki Giovanni. There is also an interview with Jason A. Michael who has just released Strength of a Woman: The Phyllis Hyman Story and LM Ross, who speaks to SOBO contributor Tim Dillinger about his book, Manhood: The Longest Moan. This is indeed an issue that will for certain be one of the most talked about for SOBO Magazine.
It doesn't stop there.
In an exclusive interview, Sananda Maitreya stops by and blesses the website with a very candid and thought-provoking conversation. The former Terence Trent D'Arby speaks about his music, influences, and the name change that is sure to get people talking. He has also been tapped as SOBO Magazine's September Artist of the Month.
