A host of
urban notable artists have banded together for a new venture
starting off in 2008. They
will take on the music world under Ranzz Entertainment - http://www.ranzz.com.
This is certainly going to make the other international
urban artist mobs
look liked they are on steroid. Would
these heartbeats of Lao music evolve into global phenomenon spearheaded by
Ken Kan Ung.
These three Lao
artists Gumby, Supasang and Joanlee also will also release independent
movie due to coming out very soon. As
for rough and tough Gumby already vowed to re-invent himself as a result he
has new motto in life ‘New Year New Gumby’.

latest sensation R&B known around town as Joanlee.
Growing up in the urban area of Long Beach, he plays piano and
guitar. Starting off with the
singing in the church choir later also sang and played in church's youth
band. Did he imagine then
that was the start of a fruitful journey?
Still, trying to make it by doing the hard yard at coffee houses,
restaurants, weddings, small clubs, "OPEN MICS" and basically
anywhere he can find a stage so he can be natural.
Joanlee has five
outstanding R&B tracks for you to sample. They are beautiful Tender Love Remix, catchy If I Had My Way,
the groovy Down Low, Stef - a truly magnificent tribute to the late Princess
superbly sung, and last but not least the outstanding The Way We Used To
Be. These are simply few of
his excellent collection of songs. They are utterly great tunes.
This JoanLee guy
has got the groove. He's got
the flow. We make him Indie
of the week. Listening to his
first track and it just grabbed me and didn't release its grip for it
duration. I immediately
He is really demonstrating the brilliant talent of
our new generation of modern Lao artists.
We can match up with what is happening in the rest of the world, in
particular the US.
