If you were a "true-blue" fan of the Showtime series "Soul Food" then you will instantly recognize the hot track "I'm Sorry" from this new group's CD. It is the same tune that was used in the background of an intense lovemaking scene between the characters "Bird" played by Malinda Williams and "Lem" played by Darrin Dewitt Henson. The fact that this song, a song in which the group sings about being sorry for the sinful things that they have done against God, could cross over and appeal to the musical directors of Soul Food and be used for that type of scene is what makes 2103 a group not just for "church folk" but for the masses. Universal appeal is the key to this project and it doesn't hurt that the three young men that make up the group are very easy on the eyes as well as talented. Produced by the remarkable production team of PAJAM, 2103 is poised to reach the "tweens" of the nation and they have released a project that should do that with ease. If you want to get your praise groove on then you need to check out "Spiritual Bizness", "Chozen" with IROCC, and "Dance" all tunes that make you want to move. If you are looking to just chill then listen to "Young Love" and the NSYNC sounding "See Me". Now don’t over look the ballads on the project, along with the J Moss featured "I'm Sorry" there is "Sweet Spirit" and the touching "Power of Christ" which showcases the harmony of the group so wonderfully. A good start for a great group. To learn more about 2103 log on to

Hometown music is delivered with a true spiritual flavor on this project. The group opens up with a positive vibe on the song "Let Me Tell It" which speaks about the good things God has done. Next it moves to a traditional groove with "Your Grace Kept Me" featuring Sherry McGlown-Denson. Denson's vocals are strong and clear on this track and bring a soulful feel to the tune. This is the keynote song on the entire project. The group also gives listeners a Latin infused song with "The Man You Want Me to Be" and a smooth jazzy ballad with "Someway Somehow" this is a solid first project for a group with much potential.

When you listen to the full bodied, honey-smooth voice of Antwaun Stanley it's hard to believe that he is only a year out of high school. Opening with the PAJAM produced "Reason" the urban "head boppin" beat that marks a PAJAM tune is enhanced even further with the harmonious voice of Stanley. Stanley came to the forefront of the music industry when he beat out 25,000 aspiring singers to nab top honors at a BET talent search. Since the age of 3 Stanley has been honing his melodious voice and he serves it up with sincerity and grace on this project. Ballads are the highlight of this disc with the tunes "I Believe" produced by Percy Bady, the Mercy Me cover "Only Imagine" and the title track "I Can Do Anything" allowing Stanley to truly minister to the heart with notes that seem to come straight from the heart. A soulful debut in every since of the word. You can check out Antwaun Stanley at
