Etta James was most famous for At Last and I'd Rather Go Blind but I love Something's Got A Hold On Me. Do you have a favourite Etta James song or performance? The singer blended raw blues and soul into her vocals with stylish ad libs. RIP.
14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011. “Five-time Grammy winner Amy Winehouse was a dynamic performer and musician who seamlessly blended rock, jazz, pop, and soul and created a sound all her own.” - The Recording Academy
I for one, am quite glad that Bedouin Soundclash are back and have a great new album for us. A band that are often called reggae but actually mix reggae, rock, punk and soul to create their unique sound. Light The Horizon is the fourth album from the band and is out on 23rd May.
I saw these guys perform at YoYo the other week in Notting Hill and thought that their whole performance was very slick. The music is Californian soul mixed with British underground rap with soulful vocals from Matt Henshaw.
