Welcome to the official Black Planet artist page of jazz-funk artist GMoney. Currently based in New Jersey/New York City metro area, I'm a bassist/keyboardist/composer/arranger and producer recording and performing in the genere of jazz-funk or AKA "Urban Alternative" My music is a fusion of music from diffrent and diverse generes. Jazz is at the heart of the music, however I bring into the "mix", funky bass lines, hip-hop, pop, dance, R&B, Afro-Cuban drums, and rhytym's. Following my debut CD release in March of 2008 ("Just Kickin It") and my 2nd album release in December of 2009 ("Back On The Grind") my music has been well received and is growing in popularity both domestically and internationally. Currently I've just finished production of my new upcoming CD/mp3 album "Rush Hour" and the album will be released on Friday September 2nd. "Rush Hour" as well as my 2 current albums, "Back On The Grind" and 'Just Kickin It" will be distributed through CD Baby and are avaiable in CD and mp3 format thru iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, and many other leading online music retailers.
The inspiration for my music comes from a variety of sources, my own background (growing up in a jazz household, mom was a singer, dad was a artist manager), uncles (the late great songwriter, Benny Benjamin was my uncle) as well as other smooth jazz artists, such as Fourplay, Euge Groove, Pieces Of A Dream, Four 80 East, Dave Koz, and Marcus Miller to name a few. My compositions represents all of those musical influnences, and is composed to be "pro-active", that is the end listener is free to form their own thoughts and feelings of the music, based on how the music affects them." As a self taught bassist/keyboardist, I spent over 20 years as a DJ, and 5 years producing "web tracks" (background music for websites) before deciding to go into a solo recording career in 2003, although I still gig with other artists and bands and while my own music is jazz-funk based, I can play in a wide variety of styles. 2011 is also the year, that will hopefully see the debut of my new jazz-funk band im currently forming and developing "The GMoney Project". If your'e looking for music that is new, fresh, diffrent, innovative and creative, then you wont go wrong with the music from GMoney.

Hello Black Planet family. It's been quite a while since I've been in touch, however it's been a long winter and a long 5 months. With all of the extreme winter we had in the Northeast this past winter, I was in my studio busy composing and recording new material for a new CD/mp3 album. The time has arrived, and my new album, "Rush Hour", will be released on CD Baby on July 2nd, just in time for the 4th of July holiday. This is my 1st new album in a year and a half, and my 1st ever summer release. Previews of the new tracks are now on my GMoney Black Planet artist page, including the title track "Rush Hour". Please feel free to stop by and take a listen to "Rush Hour", the new upcoming CD/mp3 album from GMoney.
Peace and Love everybody.

Hello to all of my Black Planet Music "fam", friends and fans. As I had in previous announcements mentioned that a new CD would be comming out in spring of 2011, well it is happening. Currently in the studio on a 4-5 week recording/pre-production cycle, I'm recording the last of the material for my upcomming CD/album titled "Rush Hour". This will be my 3rd CD/album (following my debut CD release in 2008 "Just Kickin It" and my 2nd mp3 album in 2009 "Back On The Grind") and my 1st CD/album in over 2 years. This new CD/album will have a R&B/jazz-funk, "Brian Culberston" feel to it. The CD/mp3 album will have bewteen 12-14 tracks and will be distributed through CD Baby and will be avaiable on CD Baby, iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon mp3 and I'm looking into possibly having it avaiable through Walmart. Preview of the new tracks will be avaiable by early-mid March (something to shed off the winter blues, espically for those of us on the East Coast as we've been HAMMERED with some funky weather this winter ). The anticipated release date is the week of the Memmorial Day weekened this comming May.
In addition, i'm also in rehersal studios...FINALLY putting together the "GMoney Project" band, which is anticipated to also debut this year. I'm currently looking for trumpet and Alto sax musicians, and a keyboardist/piano player and I'm still auditioning drummers, so if you live in the New York City/New Jersey Metro area, and you may be intrested in auditioning for my upcomming band, feel free to hit me up here at BP or if your'e on Facebook, drop me a not of intrest and/or friend me there. I'm on Facebook under "Greg GMoney Cuffee" and make sure you mention your'e from Black Planet.
Some other news of interest: I'm currently in talks with a bassist/drummer/producer based in Rome, Italy on the possibility of performing in Rome, Italy during the summer of 2011. Nothing has been "written in stone" as of yet, but talks are continuing. Once I have more definitive details on this I will be sure to share with my BP "family"
This 3rd CD/album release is a big one for me, as it holds alot of promise of taking the "GMoney" brand to a wider audience, and to the "next level" in the music game. I'm also during this time putting demo CD's together to start shopping to some record labels to see about securing a recording/artist development deal. Over the past 2 albums I've developed quite a following not only in the US, but internationally as well, and to me, it's time to take the GMoney sound to the next level. Some other projects for this year include entering some well know music contests to further promote my jazz-funk-R&B sound.
In closing I want to thank all of my BP family/friends/fans for your continuing support of me and my music. I really, really appreciate it.
Till my next announcment, Peace and Love everybody, and "keep the groove alive"
