PRODUCTION LABEL

 

Starr Cullars has launched her own record/production label, “Cosmic Nation Records.” Starr is one of the baddest bass players around, and is known for her work on VH-1’s Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp, and as the only woman in George Clinton’s 18-piece P-Funk All-Stars. She left Clinton to fully immerse herself in progressive, hard rock and started the Starr Cullars Crew.

Starr, who has always approached life with a strong sense of mission stated, “I completely understand that as a songwriter-artist and bandleader, I had to fortify myself and my organization for respected, compensated longevity. Since the labels have essentially vanished – with just 2-3 consolidated into corporate machines – I realize as a creative-artist I have to manufacture, distribute and sell my own albums and works. Also I see myself as a leader, CEO, and rising mogul.”

Determined to give back to the community, Starr began the “Cosmic Nation Foundation” and performs concerts with her Rock Mentors for select charities. The Starr Cullars Crew has performed with Fishbone and Kings X.

“I feel it is most necessary to strongly be my own best resource. Mark Hudson/Producer Aerosmith & Ozzy Osbourne, named me Amazon Oprah during our VH1 show. My goal is to become a musical industry version of Oprah, and establish my own empire,” stated Starr.

Starr Cullars was selected for Nice & Rough (dot) com’s July TOP 5 Black Women IN Rock musicians/guitarists for her bad-ass skills on bass.

Once again, the incomparable, raw and steamy lyrics of BETTY DAVIS have found their way into contemporary culture.  Davis’ Your Mama Wants Ya Back is featured in Chris Rock’s film, TOP 5. The song, originally released in 1974 on Davis’ second album, “They Say I’m Different” reflects the bold, unapologetic sensuality and confidence that infused all of her work.

betty lingerie2This is not the first time Betty Davis’ music has been heard on the contemporary entertainment scene. Her music has been sampled by Ice Cube, Lenny Kravitz, Skin, Talib Kweli….and has inspired the work of Prince, acts like Vanity 6, and a new generation of  Black Women  IN Rock. Check out our video playlist to LISTEN to this funky Betty Davis joint, and more music from Black Women IN Rock.
