In this edition I dug into the archives to deliver buffet of soul & progressive hip hop so funky, gritty, raw, fun, sensuous and curious – even I was surprised when I pressed play.
While a number of indie heroes like Eric Roberson, Raheem DeVaughn, Sy Smith, et al are becoming more prominent in the soul music landscape – we cannot ignore the myriad of other powerful voices that continue to bless our ears and touch our hearts. I’m sure you’ll dig these artist so be sure to check their links and get even deeper into their sound.
The Friday 5ives with GRAMMY Community Blogger, Will Dawson, is in full effect as well as a fitness tip to enhance your healthy lifestyle and “cyberspaceagesoul” (remember those?) to preserve the sexy of your web browser.
Get ready for the fish grease heat that’s sure to warm your wintery weekend.
