This has been a labor of love project in the works for 2 years and it has taken me on an amazing journey, from Memphis to New York to L.A. – all in pursuit of my love of soul and Rhythm & Blues music. The album contains 11 original songs and one super fun “blast from the past” cover, the Bar-kays Hit song “Soul Finger”. I have recorded with some of the absolute best musicians in the world which includes; Ray Parker Jr, Lenny Castro, Paul Jackson Jr, The Dap Kings, Barry Eastmond, Freddie Washington, Teddy Campbell and Alex Al. I also put together a very special studio band in Memphis which contains members from Al Green’s band and the remaining members from the Stax rhythm section and the Memphis horns. We also added the talented singers Taylor Dayne and Sy Smith – all in all a super fun uptempo Soul/Jazz/R&B project.
I also wanted to give you a first look at my new single “Beale Street” as I perform it LIVE at the Intrust Arena in Wichita! This was taped just a few months ago during my tour opening up for Barry Manilow in arena’s all across the U.S.
