First Listen: Jimmy Lee of Fat Larry's Band wants to "Zoom"

First Listen: Jimmy Lee of Fat Larry's Band wants to "Zoom"

(June 20, 2019) While Philadelphia-based funk’n’soul outfit Fat Larry’s Band never quite reached household name status in the US, the lively collective established quite a track record in the UK, where its romantic midtempo swayer “Zoom” rocketed to #2 in 1982—and was even featured in a popular British sitcom of the time.

First Listen: David Davis and Tiffany T'zelle pay tribute to Aaliyah

(June 18, 2019) No discussion of great vocalists of the 1990s can be complete if it does not include Aaliyah Dana Haughton, and it is amazing to realize that this artist accomplished so much and left such a giant impact in her short life. Had Aaliyah had lived, she would have turned 40 this year. Aaliyah was respected by 90s children who grew up listening to that era’s fusion of hip-hop and R&B and fans of earlier soul music epochs who knew someone who had the pipes when they heard them.

Former Impressions lead vocalist Jermaine Purifory has his "First Dance"

(June 17, 2019) Most would agree that one of the highlights of the typical wedding reception is the first dance, when the newlyweds take center stage in front of family and friends and sway, waltz, or two step their way toward forever.  Each couple may approach choosing their first dance song differently, but the main idea is that the selection be just right for them.

First Listen: Brandee Younger and Niia want to “Save The Children”

(June 17, 2019) Brandee Younger does something that is unusual but compelling: She takes her harp to places where few others go, including jazz, soul and hip-hop, and is celebrated for the results.

First Listen: Brian Owens shines on deep Marvin Gaye cut "Sparrow"

(June 16, 2019) Of all of the artists we cover at SoulTracks, one of the toughest to categorize is singer and songwriter Brian Owens. When we introduced him to SoulTrackers seven years ago, he came across as an old school soul man with a killer vocal instrument.

First Look: Sy Smith and B Slade charm us on "Perspective" video

(June 17, 2019) Longtime SoulTrackers know that we’ve been following the stellar career of LA-based singer and songwriter Sy Smith for awhile now. She’s the hardest working woman in show business and has delivered a string of fun, always thoughtful albums over more than 15 years. But even her strong output over the years didn’t prepare us for last year’s breakout release Sometimes A Rose Will Grow In Concrete, Sy’s most personal album and one of our undoubted faves of 2018.

Nile Rodgers helps KC and the Sunshine Band get "More"

(June 15, 2019) From 1975 to 1980, Miami-based disco ensemble KC & The Sunshine Band scored a slew of massive dance hits that resonated with soul, pop, and disco audiences alike: “That’s the Way (I Like It),” “Get Down Tonight,” “I’m Your Boogie Man,” and “Please Don’t Go”—to name a very few. While they have continued to perform live regularly over the past three decades, their recording output has been sporadic since the mid-‘80s. 

First Listen: Robb’s “Best of 2019 (so far)” Playlist

June 15, 2019 – As the mid-point of 2019 rapidly approaches, it seems like a good time to revisit  the year in soul/R&B thus far. And what a delightful first six months it’s been!  Terrific new albums from SoulTracks mainstays Rahsaan Patterson, Tony Momrelle and Leela James, a stellar debut from the gifted Lucky Daye, and a plethora of great tracks from a wide spectrum of artists.

World Premiere Video: Tanika Charles wants him to "Tell Me Something"

(June 14, 2019) Tanika Charles has been making quite a stir in the Toronto area for a few years. Her album Soul Run turned a lot of heads, as Tanika’s voice and classic soul vibe created a kind of timeless feel to her work.

Tanika is now back with a new album called The Gumption, produced by a stable of some of Canada’s finest musical minds including DJ Kemo (The Rascalz, Kardinal Offishall), Chin Injeti (DJ Khalil, Eminem, Drake) and Daniel Lee (Hooded Fang, Phedre),

Happy Birthday, Linda Clifford!

We wish a very Happy Birthday to the legendary singer, Linda Clifford, born June 14, 1948.

Both drop dead gorgeous and an extremely talented singer, Clifford gathered a huge following among dance enthusiasts in the late 70s and early 80s for a series of smash disco hits; but to label her as a "disco diva" understates the length and breadth of her career.
