"It's a New 'Dawning' for Six Minutes 'til Sunrise"

Have you ever looked back on a talented classmate and wondered what they were up to? I had a moment like that concerning a former college buddy whom I had the pleasure of getting to know during my tumultuous freshman year. A talented singer, I always knew that she was destined for greatness. Fast forward 15 years (sheesh) and someone happened to send me a link to Houston-based R&B trio Six Minutes 'til Sunrise's maxi-single, The Dawning. And upon hearing the opening track, "Let It Flow," I was pleasantly surprised to hear the one-of-a-kind voice of Tanika Keys along with fellow bandmates Ron John and Shawn Taylor. And you will be, too, when you check out The Dawning.

The group's harmonies and style are reminiscent of a time when R&B was more about the talent and less about the look. Each track on the set is wrapped in laid-back production heavy on the mellow groove. The musical canvas allows the vocals of the group to blend beautifully. With members taking turns on leads for each song, the trio's chemistry is evident. "Let It Flow" is a dreamy number that tells the story of a chance meeting that becomes something more as sparks fly. Meanwhile, "Holiday" finds them planning a lovers' retreat over a chill R&B soundbed that's perfect for snuggling up with your honey. Rapper Kay delivers verses on both tracks, giving them a bit of street cred without veering too far from the songs' feel. But they saved the best for last with closer "More." It's a bold number that finds them requesting just a bit more than what's being offered from their lover over a smoothed-out R&B vibe reminiscent of the sounds of the mid-'90s.

The Dawning is an impressive introduction to those unfamiliar with Six Minutes 'til Sunrise and yet another amazing offering for all those already in the know. We are without a doubt indebted to Rappers I Know for introducing them to the masses. Take a listen to the set right here and be sure to grab the free download and share the group with your friends. - D-Money

What do you get when you feature a thrilling vocal mastermind, a crowd-pleaser of a triple threat, and the head-turning appeal of sweetness, sexy sassiness, and superior singing skills? A unique and extraordinary group the likes of which you have never experienced, Six Minutes ‘til Sunrise! The band mates, Tanika Keys, Ron Johnson, and Shawn Taylor, showcase remarkable resumes which prove they were made to perform.

From gracing the world-renowned Apollo stage to showcasing her talent for Grammy award winning artists, Tanika Keys has honed her exceptional musical abilities and acquired the intellect to not only perform, but entertain. The granddaughter of Archie Bell of Houston’s own Archie Bell and the Drells, her love affair with music was intrinsically passed down to her. It is nearly impossible not to be moved by this songstress’ spirit when she begins to share the music that so clearly lives in her soul.

Ron Johnson is a uniquely talented tenor whose haunting voice leaves an indelible imprint on every note. He moves effortlessly between Jazz, R&B and Gospel with what is undoubtedly a style that is all his own. A true entertainer, seeing him in a live show is an experience that will take you on a musical and theatrical journey. Having an impressive body of work singing behind Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award winning artists, he has proven to be as versatile as they come.

Hailing from a lineage of musical legends such as Jessie Norman, funk-man Rick James, and gospel music pioneer Lonnie Norman, Shawn Taylor upholds the tradition of artistry. Performing with Grammy Award winning artists, competing in several national and local talent showcases, and traveling abroad with his college tour choir are just a few ways he has shared his incomparable gifts with the nations. Undoubtedly, Shawn is an amazing musician whose passion will inspire others as he continues to contribute to the world of music.

As individuals, Tanika, Ron, and Shawn are impressive; as a group, Six Minutes ‘til Sunrise is magical. Each of the three members work together to create a masterpiece of a show each time they are given an opportunity to light up the stage. These passionate, amazing musicians capture their audience and persuade them to fall into their elevated world of beautiful soul music.
