Wonda’s Latest Projects
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Famey has been making music since he was 10 years old. In 2001, he auditioned and eventually became a finalist on the music television show ‘Showtime at the Apollo’ in Philadelphia, kick starting his career as a DJ-turned-music producer and songwriter.
In spite of his teachers and peers who constantly told him he would never make it in life, Famey dropped his first mixtape ‘Bookbagz n ChuckTaylors’ in June of 2009. His career gained momentum in 2008 when he sold out shows in local venues. Two of his songs were regularly played by local radio stations. The industry began to take note when he was nominated for Best Local Album at the 11th Hour Readers Choice Awards in Macon, Georgia.
Famey was greatly inspired to succeed after the sudden and tragic death of his father and manger in May 2009. He released his first official single ‘Applause’ on iTunes to considerable success. In 2011, he caught the attention of Grammy Award-winning producer Jerry Wonda, and landed an exclusive recording and production contract with Wonda Music.
Famey is anything but your average rapper. His melodies are soulful and his lyrics are sincere. Each song reflects his raw and natural talent, and the struggle of an anything-but-ordinary lifestyle.
His latest track GOOD NEWS received significant acclaim in the underground hiphop community. It’s just a taste of what’s to come when he drops his next mixtape ‘The More It’s Worth’ this Thanksgiving, November 26th. Watch this space for this up-and-coming artists’ next project!
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, a veteran Real Housewives of New York star, debuted her third single ‘Girl Code (Don’t Be So Uncool)’ in June this year, in collaboration with WondaMusic. She proclaimed that Wonda is “amazing!” in an interview with the New York Post.
She unveiled the catchy pop-electronica tune on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, before singing and dancing while on a float at New York City’s annual Pride parade.
Andy Cohen, talk show host and producer, helped Countess LuAnn find the inspiration to write another song, after she delivered the line “Don’t be all, like, uncool” while filming Real Housewives.
“The song is important for every generation,” Countess LuAnn said, “You don’t go stealing your girlfriend’s boyfriend.”
Though it may be too soon to tell, Countess LuAnn’s collaboration with Wonda might just be her best work yet.
