Plunky & Oneness' New Release In Heavy Demand At
Radio Worldwidelt

RICHMOND, Virginia - - November 8, 2002 - - N.A.M.E. Brand Records recording
artist, Plunky & Oneness, a dynamic and versatile music group performing
R&B, Funk, Jazz and African and World music, has recently released its 17th
recording titled, "Got to Move Something," a double CD that also includes a
live concert recording in Atlanta.
  The first single, "Will You Smile," has already attracted major attention by
radio music directors and programmers worldwide, and is successfully being
added daily to a number of play lists.  Additionally, and as a result,
influential leading print media have begun requesting promotional copies for
artist interviews and reviews as well.
  To date, the group has toured Europe, performed at numerous festivals and
appeared with some of the biggest names in popular music, which include;
Patti LaBelle, BB King, Ray Charles, Roy Ayers, Najee and many others.  Most
recently, the act performed at the 2002 National Black Arts Festival in
Atlanta, Georgia.
Interestingly, band leader James "Plunky" Branch, has a different bit of
notoriety in that he was also the smooth-styled saxophonist heard on the
music tracks during scene segues on "The Cosby Show."
  When asked about an upcoming world tour in support of the new release that
is being added to station rosters at a feverish pitch, Plunky says, "I think
that the tour will start after the first of the year, as I am planning to
play in London on January 17 & 18, and then take the band to do a showcase
in Cannes, France during the week of MIDEM.  When we come back from that, we
should be gearing up for February dates and touring in March."
  If you have not had an opportunity to be exposed to this incredibly creative
and diversified act that puts the "fresh" back in refreshing, please make it
a point to do so at your earliest opportunity.
