He is a soulful storytelling master. As a matter of fact, he is in the soulful lineage of Sam Cooke, Al Green, or Bill Withers in his vocal mastery, storytelling prowess and evolution of self, as well as his sound. He could be one of the last of his kind in an era characterized by quick fixes on social media, streaming music and the evolution of Hip Hop.  He is a soul man who takes his sweet Southern time and by his own lyrical admission, "my soul is on fire!"  This time, he is tuning all of our spirits to the highest possible frequency with an earthy homage to love. Perhaps, this is not only a season of love, but an age of love that he himself is ushering in."Love is the New Black" is the title of this multi-platinum Grammy Award winning artist's latest creation in a career umbrellaing nearly 4 decades. It's also his first album under his own label "My Music Box". Widely acclaimed by critics and music lovers, the album has received 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon. He has been nominated for 17 Grammy Awards, sold nearly 50 million albums around the world and has worked side by side with D'Angelo and Prince at Paisley Park Studios. He is a singer, songwriter, and producer who rose to fame with his platinum-selling second studio album "Comin' from Where I'm From", which featured the title track single "Comin' from Where I'm From" and the follow-up mega hit "Charlene". "Here's to Life" welcomes the brilliant, soulful and rich talent that is Anthony Hamilton. “I learned patience, perseverance, and dedication. Now, I really know myself, and I know my voice.  It's a voice of pain and victory.”  - Anthony Hamilton This episode on "Here's To Life"•  Why Anthony Hamilton sings about love•  Hear why Anthony is comin from where he's from...•  Learn how love is the new black •  Find out why Lucille gets a little more love than Charlene•  Get a sneak preview of Anthony singing "Superstar" and moreCREDITS:Guest:  Anthony Hamilton Host and Producer:  Tori ReidExecutive Producer:  Patrick A.

Hailing from Philadelphia, America's City of Brotherly Love, Ryan Tennis' music is all about dismantling boundaries and bringing people together. Genre-defiant by nature and with diversity at its core, his rousing songs are infused with the rhythms from the many countries he's visited during his extensive tours. While his performances are dynamic and danceable, Tennis' voice and songs have a disarming sweetness that lowers your defenses and lets you breathe easy. A singer-songwriter and guitarist, Ryan Tennis' style bares a strong influence from the Folk and Rock he grew up with (Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Crosby Stills, Nash & Young), a connection with roots soul music that grew in his youth (Bill Withers, Otis Redding, and Sam Cooke), and the energy and rhythms of Colombia, where he has toured and collaborated with some of the country's finest artists. Despite a life that now circulates around music almost entirely, Tennis admits he was a late bloomer when it came to songwriting. Sports occupied much of his time during his teens and into college, playing as a 1AA All-American defensive lineman at Davidson College in North Carolina until the age of 22. That intensity and power that he channelled for football still comes through in Tennis' live performances.  Over the last 12 years, Tennis has played 100-200 shows a year and pulled off countless independent tours with shows in the US, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Thailand, and Australia.  Since then, Tennis has also released four full-length LPs and two EPs, has fronted a 10-piece "Graceland'' band with the Grammy award-winning South African bass player Bakithi Kumalo, collaborated with Latin Grammy winning artists Nidia Gongora and Hugo Candaleria, and regularly toured South America with Latin Grammy-nominated group "El Caribefunk”. Additionally, he won the Philadelphia Songwriters Project, was selected as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and helped found “Sancochofest” in the City of Tuluá, Colombia. In his hometown of Philadelphia, he curates and hosts “Tracks at the Vale,” a vibrant concert series on the stage he built in his backyard, where the music and the crowd echo the warmth and diversity he has fostered in his music.  “Everyone's struggling these days in their own way, including me” Tennis says. “The best way I've found to feel that joy, that flow, that freedom from worry, is when I'm performing, when I feel like I'm channeling something big. When I'm in that place I can open up my own groove, and open it up for other people too.” Ryan Tennis has achieved so much during his time in music and shows little sign of slowing down. His forthcoming single, 'Alligator' is scheduled for release in early September 2021; a taste of what's to come from his forthcoming album later in the year.  https://www.ryantennismusic.com/

We may find in that particular literature “a mirror” in which more clearly to recognize ourselves, where we stand before God and one another. We will “read” the likes of: Bob Dylan (a Nobel Laureate), Arlo Guthrie, Simon and Garfunkel, John Denver, Seals and Crofts, the Beatles, Sam Cooke, the Moody Blues, Cat Stevens, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and others. This episode features musicians Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan.

This week we welcome, The Ultimate Elvis, Dean Z! When Dean was 3, the documentary "This Is Elvis" was being broadcast on television. He immediately cleared the coffee table, jumped on top of it and started trying to imitate Presley's every move. Not long after, Dean's mother made his first Elvis jump suit, and he was on his way. After performing in several shows of his own, Dean took off for the bright light city that would set his soul on fire, Las Vegas, at age 17. He relocated to the entertainment mecca to attain the goal of establishing himself as a well-known act. Throughout the next 12 years, Dean performed in Vegas, and has paid tribute to "The Memphis Flash" in Japan, Australia, Norway, Denmark, England, across Canada and the United States. Dean soon earned a spot with the World's Greatest Live Tribute Show, "Legends in Concert," then in 2007, moved to headlining the show in Branson, Missouri. In 2013, Dean decided it was time to go after the title of Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist. He and the 28 other semi-finalists competed for the top ten spots on August 14th with the Finals coming three days later. He brought the house down, and was soon presented with a championship belt, the title of Ultimate Elvis 2013 from EPE, a check for $20,000 and tens of thousands of new fans. The year 2014 was a banner year for Dean, who received the Heart Of The King Award in Las Vegas at the former Las Vegas Hilton, on the same stage the Elvis himself performed over 700 shows during the 1970's. Dean also had the pleasure of being a part of the national touring production Elvis Lives, a live musical highlighting Elvis' career that features world champions from the Ultimate Elvis® Tribute Artist ContestTM . As Dean's success as an entertainer and personality grew, so did his creativity. Dean combined his life, love, passion and influences to create a unique concert and show experience, with Broadway-worthy dance moves and spontaneous audience interaction called "The Dean Z Show." The show featured Dean's boundless energy and youthful exuberance as he accompanies the audience on an eclectic musical journey into the bygone eras of soul, rockabilly, rock 'n' roll, pop, and rhythm and blues. During the production, the award-winning and internationally acclaimed entertainer performed the music that inspired his passion for performance, including songs from Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke and so many others. Since its sold out premiere, “The Dean Z Show” has been mesmerizing audiences of all ages across the country, and will continue to do so. Dean will be presenting “Dean Z – The Ultimate Elvis” at the Clay Cooper Theatre. For tickets and information, call 417 -332-2529; or visit ClayCooperTheatre.com.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Alexander Nate over Zoom video!Virginia-based singer, songwriter and music video director, Alexander Nate, is turning the pages of his own story into a cinematic visual, with the release of “Save This Dance For Me.” When it comes to Alexander's music, he's always digging deeper, focusing on writing in an autobiographical style about personal, but relatable, moments in life. Alexander's main focus has always been to create a catalogue of in-depth music, as a visual and emotional experience, that introduces fans to a world they can immerse themselves in.Coming fresh off the release of “bluejay,” which began telling the story of his current relationship and how they found each other, we're now moving on to the next chapter with “Save This Dance For Me.” An inspiring, romantic number about nostalgia and love, Alexander states; “It's about the time I met her, asking her to save this dance for me before the end of the night. Hold on to every moment.” He elaborates; “Moving into the second verse I'm expressing to her, if things become hard, if you remember anything from the time we have together, could you save THIS dance for me?” With his powerful vocals piercing through your ears in the best way possible, Alexander sings “Put both your hands on my shoulder. If it all fades away in the morning, and you save one memory. Could you save this dance for me?Born and raised in Virginia, Alexander Nate's signature sound combines Motown influences with modern pop elements to create a smooth sound that dances between Soul and R&B. “My mom would always play old-school legends around the house when I was young. Sam Cooke. Nina Simone... My mom is from Ethiopia, so when I grew up—a lot of Ethiopians were [listening to the same music]. Songs from Al Green, all those. So when she came to America, those songs were what she was listening to and played for me growing up” he tells DJBooth. With over 2M streams across all platforms, Alexander's vocals are the center. of attention on all of his tracks, simultaneously smooth and raspy, fitting perfectly over powerful 808s and light instrumentals. Alexander's releases have been highly anticipated by his growing base of dedicated fans following the success of his EP RedCanaryin 2018; which RESPECTMagazinereferred to as an EP “... that paints a vivid picture about love lost, family, and hopes for a lost soul."Alexander states “While my previous project reflected the stories of my past, “bluejay” and “Save This Dance For Me” have both allowed me to depict what's been going on with me in the present. The ups and the downs, learning who to trust, and navigating through love. It's been therapeutic.. like catching up with a friend you haven't spoken to in a while”We want to hear from you!

There was a moment, somewhere between the 1980s and 1990s, when Black music turned gangsta. This moment shaped two of the world's most influential genres: American Rap and Jamaican Dancehall. The story behind the music is one of oppressed Africans unlocking the ancient powers of their ancestors to break free. The dark side of this story is that many of those Africans, descended from slaves, embraced the pattern of violence that had cursed them for so long, and slowly turned against each other. Was gangsta music the explosion of Black culture, or the implosion of Black power? In the end, the market decides.

Today, Merry Clayton — the legendary singer who has made indelible contributions to music by Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Carole King and so many more — shares “Touch The Hem Of His Garment,” a stirring version of the timeless Sam Cooke-penned song from her forthcoming album Beautiful Scars out April 9th on Motown Gospel. With vocal arrangements by Terry Young, percussion by Paulinho da Costa and saxophone by Gerald Albright, “Touch The Hem Of His Garment” is a joyous track emblematic of Beautiful Scars' mission: To celebrate God's grace and find love and joy in the face of hardship and tragedy. “If I can just touch the hem of your garment,” Merry sings, ever faithful in God's redemptive power, “I know I will be made whole right now.” The lessons of perseverance and resilience found on Beautiful Scars are hard-fought. In 2014, mere months after the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom in which Merry stars won an Oscar - a tragic car accident hospitalized her for five months. The accident claimed both of her legs and required years of diligent rehabilitation. But Merry found strength in her own voice — which remained as powerful as ever — and, recalling her upbringing in her father's New Orleans parish, the healing themes of Gospel music. Co-produced by lifelong friend, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Lou Adler, and legendary Gospel vocalist, instrumentalist and songwriter Terry Young, Beautiful Scars finds Merry emboldened by His Word, mercy and eternal love — it's the most heartening and human record she has ever made. Recorded at Henson Studios (formerly the famed A&M Studios where many of Merry's most historic sessions took place) in Hollywood, Beautiful Scars features original songs by Terry Young, Coldplay's Chris Martin and Diane Warren as well as classic covers. Alongside “Touch The Hem Of His Garment,” those include Leon Russell's “A Song For You,” a reprisal of a track Merry sang on her 1971 album that incorporates a vintage solo recording by her late husband, legendary saxophonist Curtis Amy, who passed away in 2020. Merry concludes the album on a hopeful note with “Ooh Child Medley,” a moving finale featuring vocal accompaniment from her granddaughter Kyliyah. Merry is ready to grace the world with her talents once again in a project flowing with emotion, triumph and tenacity. A document of resilience, joy, and most importantly faith, Beautiful Scars has Merry back doing what God put her on earth to do: sharing her revelatory voice with the world.

To describe or define Alvin Garrett with a singular title may be a near impossible task. However, after getting to know him, one would have to agree that he is certainly a Pioneer of Inspirational Soul. This Alabama-born-and-raised preacher's son, has woven over twenty years of diverse experience in the entertainment industry with the common thread of hope and inspiration. Whether its R&B, Gospel, Pop, or Jazz, you will recognize Garrett's inspirational fingerprint in all his music and business endeavors. Garrett's masterful songwriting, captivating smile, and spine-tingling voice is reminiscent of soul music legends, Sam Cooke and Al Green. This honorable comparison began in 2015 with the release of the soul-riveting song, “By Myself,” which many still compare to the timeless and epic nature of Sam Cooke's “A Change is Gonna Come.” In the summer of 2020, the Grammy-nominated songwriter continued to carry the torch of musical activism with his thought provoking EP, The Awakening. With the weight of the Covid-19 pandemic and the heaviness of social unrest, Alvin Garrett crafted a collection of songs that sought to speak to and awaken the Soul of America. Now, Garrett is lifting spirits and lightening the mood with his beautiful new project, The Lightness of Love. Garrett, himself, has traveled a long road in his musical career. Not only is he a business owner, professional bassist, music and event producer, recording and performing artist, he is an award-winning songwriter. He has written and arranged songs for Joe, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia, Johnny Gill, Ruben Studdard, Noel Gourdin, Jordan Knight, Deitrick Hadden, Trin-I-Tee 5:7, and many others. In addition to a Grammy nomination, Garrett has won a Soul Train Award, a Dove Award, and a Stellar Award. Garrett's 2012 debut album, Expose Yourself, was critically acclaimed by many as one of the sexiest smooth R&B albums of our time. In 2019, he released his second full-length album, This HILL, which was his homage to life lessons and his personal philosophy…”Because of HOPE, I have the INSPIRATION to pursue what I LOVE at the risk of LOSS.” This project was also the foundation for his new independent label, HILL Entertainment. In 2015, Garrett's love for entertainment, education, and empowerment led to the development of an innovative songwriting program called, The Write Life. He currently teaches this amazing class with The Dannon Project, which is the country's #1 Department of Labor funded re-entry and social services agency based in Birmingham, AL. The Write Life has become a transformative tool for recruitment, engagement, retention, and motivation of their participants. Alvin says, “I absolutely love to motivate and encourage people by showing them how to utilize the power of words and music to sculpt their future.” Reach out to Alvin Garrett online @: Facebook: thealvingarrett Instagram: thealvingarrett Twitter: thealvingarrett YouTube: TheAlvinGarrett Website: AlvinGarrett.com Listen to Alvin Garrett's latest singles now on Spotify: The Lightness of Love - https://open.spotify.com/track/25jLTkmhOxGwAwov5tHz5O?si=f3693e4df2b14fbd Flowers https://open.spotify.com/track/48yQ8VSx8lxUOTXRx2JJtA?si=7eafe5a3ca95437b   For more information and news, check out our website and on social media: www.BringBackSoulMusic.com.

In this, the second of two episodes, Billy and Michael talk with renowned music author Peter Guralnick about Charlie Rich's success and final record, Elvis Presley, Tom Waits, Chet Atkins, Colonel Tom Parker, and highlights from his highly-acclaimed new book, "Looking to Get Lost: Adventures in Music and Writing". More about Peter: Peter Guralnick has been called "a national resource" by critic Nat Hentoff for work that has argued passionately and persuasively for the vitality of this country's intertwined black and white musical traditions. His books include the prize-winning two-volume biography of Elvis Presley, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love. Of the first Bob Dylan wrote, “Elvis steps from the pages. You can feel him breathe. This book cancels out all others.” He won a Grammy for his liner notes for Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club as well as writing the scripts for the Grammy-winning documentary Sam Cooke/Legend and Martin Scorsese's blues documentary Feel Like Going Home. His biography of Sam Cooke, Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke, was hailed as "monumental, panoramic, an epic tale told against a backdrop of brilliant, shimmering music, intense personal melodrama, and vast social changes.” His 2015 biography of Sam Phillips, Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘n' Roll, was named one of the Best Books of the Year by the New York Times and was a finalist for the Plutarch Award for Best Biography of the Year. Reaction to his latest book, Looking to Get Lost, has ranged from Michael Eric Dyson's tribute to “one of the 3 or 4 greatest writers in the country today” to Rosanne Cash's description of him as “a dedicated explorer, a writer of great sensitivity and intuition, who lyrically untangles the network that exists between artist and art” to No Depression's description of a book that “is not a summation so much as a culmination of his remarkable work, which from the start has encompassed the full range of blues, gospel, country and rock and roll.”

Tony and Grammy-winning actor Leslie Odom Jr. is best-known for his role as Aaron Burr in 'Hamilton.' Now he stars as Sam Cooke in Regina King's film 'One Night in Miami,' which imagines a night where Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown and Cooke meet. Odom talks about studying Cooke's voice, hearing Burr's song "Wait for It" for the first time, and how the musical 'Rent' inspired him as a teen. Odom is nominated for two Oscars — for his role as Sam Cooke and for his original song, "Speak Now." In the dark comedy 'Promising Young Woman,' Cassie (Carey Mulligan) works at a coffee shop by day, and hunts sexual predators by night. She goes to bars, pretends to be falling down drunk — and then confronts the men who try to take advantage of her. Cassie is avenging the death of her best friend, who, the movie implies, has died by suicide after being raped at medical school. Writer and director Emerald Fennell says the film was inspired, in part, by the messages other movies send about alcohol and consent. We talk with Fennell about her Oscar-nominated film, her work on 'Killing Eve' and her portrayal of Camilla Parker Bowles on 'The Crown.'
