"You Know I Got Soul: The Essence of R&B"

YouKnowIGotSoul caught up with Smoke E. Digglera, formerly of the group Playa, to discuss everything from his time spent in Playa, to working with Static Major, to running his own record label and developing his own artists. He's a great singer, and I hope everyone will support his music. - DJ Slam


"PopMatters"

Remembering the unique magic that was the “Super Friends”, it’s hard to listen to any of them now that they’ve split (excluding the two surviving members of Playa, Smoke E. Digglera and Digital Black, who are doing brilliant work with their own independent record labels). - Tyler Lewis

"LEO Weekly"

Playa’s Smoke E. Digglera, Geto Boys’s Willie D. and Twista raise a curious eyebrow. The next single follows immediately, the title cut featuring the former Playa singer. What is assumed to be a strip-club track is actually a pretty strong hip-hop love song.Skirt Kall is recommended. - Damien Mcpherson

Bio

Responsible for many of the hits you have heard on the radio over the past 13 years, SMOKE E. DIGGLERA is a soulful R&B artist / producer, who blends traditional Rhythm & Blues with elements of pop, hip-hop, jazz and the Motown Sound. SMOKE E. DIGGLERA was born in Louisville, Kentucky and began singing at the age of five. During his early years, SMOKE E. DIGGLERA sang at home, in church and in school productions. He studied other artist's musical and vocal talents which deeply influenced his own musical style.

In the mid 1990's, SMOKE E. DIGGLERA (then named "Smokey") was a member of the R&B group Playa who got their big break when they were discovered by platinum selling R&B group Jodeci after they sang backstage for them at a show. Under the guidance of Jodeci producer DeVante, Playa was a part of production / singing / writing collective dubbed "Da Bassment" whose members included Grammy Award winning artists Missy Elliot and Timbaland.

Playa, with SMOKE E. DIGGLERA on lead vocal, released their debut album "CHEERS 2 U" in 1997. The hit single of the same name reached 10 on Billboard's R&B / Hip-Hop Chart and remains a favorite among music lovers today. The video for "CHEERS 2 U" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yvSkYpVZ_I) made history by becoming the most requested video on Black Entertainment Television (BET).

SMOKE E. DIGGLERA's time with Playa gave him the opportunity to work with some of the music industry's biggest stars as an artist, producer, arranger, and writer including: Grammy Award winning legend Al Green, Grammy Award winning artist and producer Kanye West and Grammy Award winning producer Teddy Riley.

As he readies his solo project, SMOKE E. DIGGLERA is opening a new chapter in his career. Writing, producing and performing solo material for a couple of years (http://ilike.com/artist/Smoke+E.+Digglera), SMOKE E. DIGGLERA is now ready to use his enormous talent and seasoned experience to take the music industry by storm once again. The new disc entitled "Undeniable", which includes leadoff single "Wiggle", is a mix of beautiful ballads and up tempo, dance friendly tracks which is sure to please listeners and musical enthusiasts of all genres.
