Rhythm & Blues
Every now and then things happen for a reason and this was one of those times. The recording of Seasoned Soul manifested a life of its own with things falling into place as though there was a stronger power guiding the recording process. From one song to the next there was a never ending amount of inspirational energy and creativity. This recording is a true testament demonstrating that experience and passion truly does make a difference. Seasoned Soul was made without the use of technology to change or alter the pure raw talent, there are no overdubs, what you hear is very human and very real. All of the musicians that contributed to the album are masters of their craft who performed live in studio without embellishment. The making of “Seasoned Soul” was a labor of love and I am very grateful to the musicians that contributed on the making of something very special.
