Chillin' After Five
Emerging smooth jazz & chillout artist 'Bickley Rivera' releases 'Chillin' After Five'. She calls upon international recording artists (Praful, Magrus Borges, Ed Calle and more) to shape the album, but has that unique chill style of her own that is captivating. Few steelpan artists have developed the Nujazz & Chillout genre with this instrumentation wrapping soothing velvet vocals. The compilation captures the 'Chill' concept, taking you through several 'suites' of music featuring smooth jazz, dance and ambient downtempo styles. The album is produced by Greg Minnick of Levelblu Music Productions and mastered by world-renowned engineer Bob Katz. Bickley Rivera showcases her tenor steel pan (steel drum) abilities along with guest appearances from saxaphone, flute and guitar soloists. Most recently, one of her pre-release singles 'Groovin' In Rio' has been featured regularly on CBS's WRCH 100.5FM radio in Southern New England. She has captured the interest of many overseas radio DJ and producers who awaited this final release of 'Chillin' After Five'. 'Your music is incredible and possibly a phenomenon.
