The esteemed panelists said the following of Definition Music:
We liked Definition Music because: Definition Music have identified a market opportunity for the next generation of indie record label, one that is designed around the modern landscape of digital tools and networks rather than simply incorporating them. Definition Music’s emphasis on focusing on a few artists is a core asset.
Emerging independent R&B Soul artist, Kelly Erez, releases her debut album ‘Come To Me’ via Definition Music this November. Hailed as ‘Putting the Soul back into R&B’ by Blues and Soul Magazine, the album is largely written by Kelly and sister Natalie Erez with input of additional writers on select tracks. The album is produced by Natalie Erez* and mixed by Mercury nominated producer/engineer, Ian Carter*, who also produced one track on the album
The album is already available for pre-order exclusively via store.kellyerez.com and will be available Worldwide. The CD and a selection of bundles are available exclusively via Kelly’s webstore with digital availability via all major outlets (iTunes, Amazon MP3, etc.)

The album comes on the back of a year of critical acclaim and a growing fanbase online with over 80,000 fans joining the cause. With much support to date from BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC 6 Music, BBC GLR, the core R&B press and online blogs, the announcement of the album was first made directly to Kelly’s fans after cumulative views of her videos on YouTube surpassed 230,000; quite an amazing number considering it’s all organic and Kelly does not have a glossy promo video.
Fans of Kelly Erez will be at the heart of the album. Kelly herself will be asking fans, via her social networks and mailing list, to help influence the making of the record. From naming it, voting on photos to competitions to win the opportunity to attend the video shoots, recording sessions and the final album cut.
The album, which is already written is being produced by Natalie Erez and mixed by Ian Carter who’s recent credits include mixing the Mercury Prize Nominated album ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam’ by Ghostpoet.
The album will be a slice of the type of R&B/Soul that many have been waiting for. Blues and Soul Magazine said that ‘Kelly Erez is putting the Soul back into R&B’ and this style and theme will be evident throughout the album.
