PRESS RELEASE February 2005


On Saturday 19th February 2005, Siani joined forces with the cream of UK gospel and Christian artistes to record a charity song, One Voice, One Heart, to raise funds for the Tsunami victims. Recorded at the infamous Abbey Road studios, in London, home to The Beatles recordings, veteran gospel artistes, such as Levine Hudson, The Wades and Trumpet of Zion sang alongside the UK’s contemporary Gospel and Christian artistes, to create this momentous, heartfelt occasion in UK gospel history.

The song, One Voice, One Heart, was written by Tim Hughes and Mark Beswick, whilst production was shared between two phenomenal gospel producers, Linslee Campbell and Neil Costello. The project was the brainchild of Lawrence Johnson, co-founder of The London Community Gospel Choir and former member of the award-winning gospel outfit, Nu Colours.

At the recording, Nicholle from Siani, expressed her thoughts to participating in this amazing project. “ It was a good event to be part of. The focus was giving our support to help those affected by the Tsunami. We hope people will support the track by buying it to raise funds for the appeal.”

Sales from the single, which will be released at Easter, will go towards the relief fund.





Award winning gospel sensation, Siani, are ready to stamp their hallmark on both Gospel and urban music scenes with the release of their forthcoming album, titled, Love Is.

Siani take a commanding position within the Urban and Gospel Market place. The infectious Linslee summer sizzler 'Love Is' has gone to number one in the Blues & Soul Hip List chart making this Siani's third consecutive number one hit.

As the vinyl hits the street, the awareness on the track continues to grow rapidly with national airplay and rave reviews throughout Gospel and Urban radio and Press.

The track received a four star rating when reviewed in this months DJ Magazine and has also been playlisted on one of UK's foremost R&B/Hip Hop radio stations, Choice FM. The track is loved by DJ's across the station and has been made 'Record of the week' on the Morning Vibe which goes out to 270,000 listeners.

Siani's Management have stated that this is a major break through for Gospel Music and something which we've all been waiting a long time for. Management are happy that doors have been opened and hopes that this is just the beginning of hearing UK Gospel music being played across the station day and night. The Choice FM bosses need to see that there is a strong Gospel Community who will support and back Gospel music so that when they consider playlisting other Gospel tracks, they can see that there is stung support and also a demand for Gospel music.

We all need to get behind the track and you can show your support by voting for it at and also flooding the request lines asking for the track to be played (Choice 96.9 FM Studio: 020 7403 0969 or Choice 107.1 FM Studio: 020 8348 1071). Out of 34 playlisted tracks Siani are already in third position with 6% vote behind Usher's - Burn with 9% and R.Kelly's - Happy People with 11% vote.

With the album ‘just around the corner’, Siani continue to work around the clock causing major impact in both Gospel and non Gospel sectors of the music industry.

Siani strike again, applying their winning formula to produce smash hits time and time again and achieving equal success both within the Gospel and Mainstream arenas.

The latest to hit the streets is the VERY VERY HOT Limited Edition 'Love Is' album sampler containing tracks 'Love Is', 'Love Ya', 'Coming Home' (we did warn you about this one!), and Your Love.

This sampler is just an appetiser! The full album 18 track album is not for the feint hearted. Siani have just raised the stakes again with an album who's credits read like the who's who of the UK urban industry. With Production by Linslee, Miss Cherokee, Antoine Stone, Adrian McKenzie, Whiteboy Chris Brooks and Ibe and Collaborations with Jahaziel, Miss Cherokee and The Witness. Musician's on the album include Dr Peter 'The Scientist' Daley, Michael 'The Prophet' Brown, Luke 'The Duke' Smith, Alden ‘Bishop’ Clarke and, of course, the man of the moment, Linslee Campbell himself.

Besides taking the GEM award for best UK Group 2003/2004 and also enjoying the Blues & Soul Gospel Category Award for two consecutive years, Siani have consistently worked hard to create great music. Previous Siani tracks like 'Missing You', 'Get up on the floor' and 'The Corner' were pioneering tracks unlocking closed doors and gaining huge success in many quarters including number one spots in the highly respected and credible Blues and Soul magazine Urban charts and also number ones within the Hip List Urban Essentials magazine Charts. As if that wasn't enough, 'The Corner' made history being the first ever Gospel track to be playlisted at BBC's 1xtra. But they didn't put it in the lower playlists, they 'A' Playlisted the track giving it a massive 24 rotations daily!!

The 'Love Is' album looms and within the last few weeks, most people have had a taste of what's to come. DJ's up and down the country are raving about the album which has gained widespread support by Gospel DJ's including Dave P, DJ Fitz, Nikki Tapper, Dulcie Dixon, Tony Tomlin, Trevor Junior, Proclaimer, Dave Prince plus many more.

Not only have Siani gained full support from the Gospel fraternity, they have gained much love and respect from some of UK's biggest Urban mainstream DJ's who have always supported the group on Radio and in Clubs. UK's Urban Taste Makers have been right behind the latest cuts with people like DJ Bigger rinsing the tracks up and down the counrty and Trevor Nelson's playing title track 'Love Is' on Sunday night (28/29th March 2004) to his massive Radio 1 audience.

'Love Is' (title track to the album) is set to be a huge hit, with 1xtra immediately playlisting the track and with the other major Radio Stations ready to follow suit. With the right campaign we could be on the verge of achieving what Gospel in the UK has been building up to for years.

There has been a massive response to the album so far and this has lead to the album release being put back. Vinyl EP's will be released within the next 3 weeks to fuel the response further whilst raising further awareness, whilst the full marketing campaign kicks in. The album will then be released shortly thereafter


PRESS RELEASE 3rd November 2003

GEM Award winners Siani prepare for the release of their Hot double A Promo single due January 2004. The single features great productions from Linslee and Diamond Stone and a collaboration with fellow GEM award winner 'The Witness'. This will certainly get things warmed up in the UK and abroad in the run up to the release of their debut 'Love is' album expected February 2004.

Siani recently appeared on God TV along with the well respected and much loved Ciyo. The girls were interviewed about the roller coaster ride they've had since bursting onto the UK Gospel scene two and a half years ago. The girls are undoubtedly the most successful UK gospel act born out of the UK in the last two and a half years with a string of achievements to their credit.

Following her memorable reign on BBC's Fame Academy, Simone, who now juggles her Kyra, Siani and Personal diary, was recently invited to a Berkshire secondary school where she was called to present certificates to school Children for outstanding achievement. She also gave an empowering speech to the children before wrapping things up in song. Simone said she found the experience overwhelming and said she was glad to be an inspiration and role model for the youth.

Nichole from the Group leaves to go to Canada for a well deserved two week break. Due to the positive response to Siani in Canada, she is due to conduct some radio interviews whilst out there. Incidentally, for those who love ballads AKA slow Jams, look out for a track entitled 'Coming Home' from the forthcoming album produced by Linslee with Nicholle on lead vocals. Wow!!

Siani have recently been interviewed by one of the UK's most respected RnB DJ's. DJ Bigger, talks to the girls about their journey so far and what we can expect for the future. This double magazine spread can be found up and down the country in UK's leading 'Urban Essentials' Christmas special magazine along with interviews from Jo and Alicia Keys.

The Urban Essentials Chart features the UK's hottest RnB Chart compiled on sales through the UK's major high street and specialist stores plus also the latest exclusive new product. Siani went to number one with their previous hits 'The Corner' and Get up on the floor'. Siani's Management hope that the next release gains as much popularity and success within the all important buzz charts.

PRESS RELEASE 27 - 30th August 2003

Agery and Nicholle had a busy last few days, performing at the 'Gospel Delite' show on Saturday 23rd August 2003 and then at the Notting Hill Carnival an Click Cub on Bank Holiday Monday 25th August 2003. Agery and Nicholle continue the Siani appointments whilst giving Simone time to fulfil her busy schedule following her return from the Fame Academy on Saturday 23rd August 2003.

Simone thought she'd get a rest on leaving the house but she was sadly mistaken. Requests for Radio and television appearance soon began to flood in and she found herself on Radio in London, Derby and Birmingham on Sunday, Children's BBC Television twice on Monday, BBC3 Television on Monday, Rise Breakfast Television on Tuesday Morning and more Radio interview again on Wednesday. Simone commented, "it was easier in the Academy!"

US superstar DJ Jazzy Jeff was at the Fame Academy on Saturday and heard Simone perform her track. He was very impressed and his Manager made contact with us on Tuesday to ask if Simone was available to perform with him at one of his shows at the Jazz cafe or Ministry of Sound this weekend.

Jazzy Jeff is well revered having sold over 10 million records, and winning three Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two NAACP Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards and a MTV Music Award along the way.

Jeff founded his full-scale musical production facility, A Touch Of Jazz in 1990. and is Responsible for scores of productions, having worked with Will Smith, Kenny Latimore, Dave Hollister, Lil Kim, Musiq Soulchild, City High, Bilal, Glen Lewis, and many more. A Touch Of Jazz was also responsible for the landmark Who Is Jill Scott?, the groundbreaking debut by Philadelphia’s most celebrated soul diva, and the smash single “Butterfly” off of Michael Jackson’s Invincible. The acclaimed production house also created the theme to Will Smith’s career-launching series, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a song on The Simpsons compilation album, the theme to UPN’s Between Brothers, and songs on the soundtracks of Wild Wild West, Love Jones, The Wood, and In Too Deep. Needless to say Simone was very happy indeed.

Simone has been invited to a film Premiere at the weekend along with Audley ,Gary and Lorna From the Fame Academy House. She has invited fellow Siani members to go with her. Simone has also been invited to presents awards at three ceremony's this autumn/Winter.

Siani appear next on Sunday 31st August at Pastor Spence's 'Joshua Generation' conference at The Round Chapel in Lower Clapton Road, London E5.

Simone is Home

Mission at the Academy completed but the journey for Simone has just started as she leaves the House in a trail of Glory. Simone has already started making contact with other friends Audley and Lorna who have also left the Academy.

Simone will be busy over the next few weeks with meetings, Television appearances, interviews etc. She has so much to say about the experience and has learnt such a great deal. "Money can't buy the experience gained from the Academy" she smiles.

Numerous doors are opening for Simone and you can catch her on CBBC (between 5 and 5.30pm today and BBC3 at 8.30pm tonight - 25/8/03) and Rise tomorrow morning (from 7am - 26/8/03).

Siani will appear at the Notting hill Carnival today and at the Click club in central London tonight.

PRESS RELEASE 26 - 25th August 2003

Mission at the Academy completed but the journey for Simone has just started as she leaves the House in a trail of Glory. Despite extensive the support for Simone, she was up against a situation where 70% of the voters were white females aged between 13 and 15 years old, and where the least amount of votes came from London. Simone has already started making contact with other friends Audley and Lorna who have also left the Academy.

Simone will be busy over the next few weeks with meetings, Television appearances, interviews etc. She has so much to say about the experience and has learnt such a great deal. "Money can't buy the experience gained from the Academy" she smiles.

PRESS RELEASE 25 - 20th August 2003

Ambassador Simone from Siani continues to etch UK Gospel on the minds of millions, venturing where no other UK gospel artist has dared to go before.

National prime time television, Millions of viewers, National tabloid press and Magazine exposure, all day interactive television exposure, not to mention the world Class vocal coaching, the song writing tuition, insight into the music business and other skills nurtured and developed at the Academy.

Siani's Management have said that this kind of vast exposure has never been achieved in UK Gospel before and is only a distant dream for many artists. It's time to come out of our confines and began to broaden our horizons and stretch ourselves. The UK gospel industry has been struggling for over 20 years and we hope that this paves the way for other UK Gospel acts to similar expose the future. We think Simone deserves the red carpet treatment when she eventually leaves the Academy (at least for a few days at least!) and a welcome home party will definitely be in order!

See Simone sings again tomorrow night on BBC's Fame Academy, let's hope she gets a good choice of song this time!

Whilst Simone Champions the Academy, Agery and Nicholle continue to Champion Siani with exhilarating performances. Management were thinking of a temporary replacement but after Agery's and Nicholas performance at Nottingham Carnival this option has been 'put on the back burner'. Junior Stewart said the following, "people often praise the management of the group but when you are dealing with exceptional singers like Simone, Agery and Nicholle, you end up marketing quality and that makes life alot easier. That is why in two years Siani have been able to achieve such success and carve a niche in both Gospel and mainstream arenas"

PRESS RELEASE 21 - 28th December 2002

Siani continue to impact the mainstream arena with their latest promos.

Siani's track, "The Corner", has made history by being the first ever Gospel track worldwide to be 'A' Playlisted on BBC's 1Xtra Radio Station, being played a staggering 27 times daily on that station.

The track also charted at number 8 on the Urban Essentials 'A' list buzz chart ahead of the likes of Jay Z feat Beyonce -'Bonnie and Clyde', Ja Rule feat Amerie -'Mesmerize' and Lil Mo- 'Make it last forever' and received a staggering 4/5 when it was reviewed.

The Magazine had the following to say:-

"This double Side is going to be Siani's biggest single to date, make no mistake. "The Corner" is produced by Linslee Campbell and is simply made for dance floors. This floor shaker, speaker popping, head nodder is a monster. Add to this the wonderfully melodic smooth groove "Get up on the floor" produced by the oh so talented Miss Cherokee. This silky velvet swayer with a bad bass line and more classy lyrics has truly set this talented outfit up for an interesting 2003. 4/5

PRESS RELEASE 20 - 22nd November 2002

The last few weeks have seemed like a roller coaster ride for the members of Siani.

Having taken a well deserved 2 week break to Egypt, they returned to the
news that their own event (An Evening with Siani), had sold out with 27 on
the reserves list. In addition, they learnt that the Dockland arena was due
to be packed with over 2500 tickets having been sold in advance for the Fred Hammond concert, for which they were support.

For those lucky enough to attend the unprecedented Evening with Siani, you
will agree that this was a night both to remember and savour. It was a
night of pure Gospel excellence where the cream of UK gospel displayed that we are on the verge of something very special over here in the UK!

Nathan Prime opened using all his experience an displaying his formidable talent to set the pace for the night. Lorna LaMaar then followed with a splendid display of Reggae backed by her dancers. Next up was the talented and charming 4 Korners and then came the unrivalled male harmonies of Blessed Voices. This was only the start and already people had their monies worth! But there was more...

Siani were then introduced onto stage by their host Grantly to a frenzy of
applause as they came onto stage with to their debut single 'We Aint Got No' and then followed up by their second single 'Missin' U'.

Grantly hosted the second section of this evening injecting humour whilst interviewing the girls on what became a very intimate and relaxed evening where the audience were all given the opportunity so ask the girls some questions of their choice. The girls answered all questions professionally, showing that they are all grounded and intelligent girls who have direction in their lives. Group member Nicholle decided to go one step further by answering one of the questions in song.

When asked how she became a committed Christian she spontaneously burst into song with the Church chorus "Something got a hold of me." Now that was just pure class!

Siani's enhanced CD was shown on big screen and had everyone hooked on the video, so much so that Grantly had to call for it to be switched of to get everyone's attention back. Due to European engagements, the original lead singer of Boney M could not make it but had recorded a message for the girls which was also shown on big screen.

At one stage the girls spoke about their experiences and about young up and coming talent before inviting their younger cousin Shaneeka to sing "I believe I can Fly"...Well, Well, well, all we can say is that you heard and saw her first at An Evening with Siani. What an awesome talent. You will definitely be seeing a lot more of her in months to come.

As if the audience had not been fed enough, the evening was further garnished with Siani collaborating with some of UK's finest.

The girls sang 'Amazing Grace' with Raymond Dyer and the crowd witnessed why the front man of Raymond and Co has such a big name in the industry today. He displayed pure talent with his smooth vocals and his wide vocal range.

The girls performed with the infamous Miss Cherokee who is as much an
accomplished producer as she is an exceptional singer. The Girls have
worked alongside Miss Cherokee in the studio producing the track they sang on the night, 'Get up on the Floor'. This track has received rave reviews from mainstream and Gospel DJ's and went down a storm on the night.

Watchman BLITZED the place with his collaboration on the track 'True Man'. This track is going to be absolutely HUGE when the album is released. The audience loved it. Watchman came on stage and the crowd went wild. His lyrical content, delivery and stage presence was awesome and the girls were honoured to share the same platform as him.

The girls then went back to their roots by singing with UK's premier Gospel
choir - Kyra. For those who don't know, the girls started of singing with the choir before Siani was born and in fact still sing with the choir today. It is clear to see where their talent stems from.

The first song with the choir was 'Come by here' lead by conductor Jennifer Stewart with Nicholle singing the lead and displaying why she is considered one of the best female vocalist in the country.

The night was then topped of with the song 'Oh Happy Day' which the girls sung with Kyra. This had a James Brown groove which had everyone in the
audience on their feet dancing.

This was the end to this memorable evening. Full credit to Siani's live
band, Patrick White (MD), Donavan Hepburn on Drums, Femi Temowa on lead guitar, Noval Smith on Keys and Peter Daley on Keys. They were awesome. Full credit to Grantly and Vincent Cox who hosts on the night.

Unfortunately, tickets for this event sold out a week and a half before the event. We squeezed about 400 people into the venue and people stood down the side and at the back.

There were numerous phone calls received by people asking for tickets, and these people were asked to place their names on a reserve list just in case there were any cancellations. Unfortunately, there were no cancellations.

You will be glad to know that, in view of the above, Kyra Melodies and D&P events have decided to stage the part II of this event, but in Birmingham. We will be running luxury coaches to the midlands for those who didn't get to see the show or those who did and wish to see more UK talent from London and the Midlands in Birmingham.

PRESS RELEASE 18 - 15th August 2002

Siani continue working tirelessly in the studio sculpting what is set to
be a ground breaking album.

Siani face one difficulty in that requests for them to perform at various events up and down the country keep coming in, eating into valuable studio time. Management have had to draw a line and Siani will only perform at selected events only.

Between live performances and working in the studio, Siani have made their
first music video 'Missing You', which is currently being broadcast in the UK, Europe, South Africa, Australia, Texas and Canada.

Due to public demand Siani's management have decided to release an enhanced CD containing a sample of tracks from the forthcoming album and the music video thus allowing people to view the video from their computers. Siani
have entered unchartered territory in releasing this enhanced CD as this has never been done in UK Gospel before.

Siani have had a great response to their first single from overseas. In particular the US media have given rave reviews and a significant number of email requests for CD's have received. As a result, a number of contacts have been established and Siani's Management have sent group member, Nicholle and Dancer, Sophie to the Gospel Music Workshop of America in Detroit America. Contact has been made with the girls who are having a great time meeting many people including well respected pioneers of Gospel music including Fred Hammond and Donnie McClurkin.

Finally, Swiss promoters have made contact with Siani's management to
invite them to perform at one of their largest Clubs in Zurich. The girls will
fly to Switzerland in November of this year.
