from Texas
debut album
released last year, just hit the chart
reminds me of Aloe Blacc
this is what we called soul music back in the day
it was hijacked by those that prefer the focus of music to be sex, guns, bling and drugs
and use words that you would not want your kids to hear
those were the days my friend
we knew they had to end

single

those were the days my friend...
but theyre getting right back where they started from...

good, good album
seriously, REAL r+b/soul on here.
would love to hear them tackle Percy's 'when a man' or some Otis.

favorite is "old man" (no, not a cover!)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcuMsZaisdo  audio

two notable covers on here,
an interesting version of Eleanor Rigby  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6Pr46spIis  live
and Bobby 'blue' Bland's classic  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf2HIb25klM  audio

Fast Car was good.
I didn't really like the Rigby, liked that they did it their way though, always takes balls to reimagine Beatles IMO.

Nice album,
Not sure if it will make the end of year cut but I'll listen again prior to that.
