Maybe Daryl Ryce and Pervis Lee are the names that ring a bell because of earlier recordings.Together with Bill Bradford who wrote all music and produced the album all these artists have re-invented soul music.

All these questions will go through your mind when you hear the kind of blues and soul that these musicians bring. And yet there music is refreshing, sparkling and very pleasant to listen to.

Has David Cook heard it through the grapevine. You'll discover your favourite songs Right here Right now between these forteen tracks.
