Indie R&B/Funk band Groove Stu has just released the video for their single “Change The World”, from their forthcoming album.

The song is a call for unity and understanding. The single will be available at all digital retailers including iTunes and Amazon on April 15 th.

Groove Stu : Artofficial Substance
**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE**
Soul Theory Entertainment has set a September 18th release for the sophomore Groove Stu album, “Artofficial Substance”.
Groove Stu is a self contained songwriting, production collective hailing from the DMV. Consisting of vocalist/keyboardist Omar Sharif, drummer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Levine, vocalist Jerrod Simpson, and saxophonist Brandon Moultrie, Groove Stu is set to release their new album “Artofficial Substance” on September 18, 2012. Artofficial Substance is an album conceived out of the need to bring back to music, essential elements lacking from today’s musical landscape. The project is an “out the box” experience that flirts with various musical genres, as well as a concentration on lyrical substance and real musicianship.
Refusing to play it safe and succumb to trends, GS instead chose to trust their instincts and follow the spirit guiding their artistry; an artistry rooted in the tradition of musical acts that strived to make timeless music that inspires and uplifts. Drawing from their diverse individual and collective influences, GS has crafted a sound that authentically combines soul, funk, rock, jazz, pop and hip hop into a colorful blend that can only be classified under Good Music.
The album’s first two singles, “Take A Chance” and “Thing Called Love”, set to hit airwaves in August, showcases the group’s penchant for lush harmonies and infectious rhythm and melody. “We wanted this album to provide a balance to sounds and messages being oversaturated on today’s radio formats,” says the group. “This is a record for those who miss the way music made you feel back in the day.”

Very excited to say that we are getting the team together to gear up for the launch of the new upcoming album Artofficial Substance. We have been working really hard to make sure this project has been worth the wait. We think you all will be pleased with the results. The feedback so far has been great. Also don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @groove_stu.
