HiT of The Week: Yellow Days “I’ll Be Loving You”

Yellow Days has shared a new song. “I’ll Be Loving You.” The track, is the lead-single the release of his LP A Day in A Yellow Beat. The song is accompanied by the-Giles Caha lane-directed video.

On his current musical direction, inspiration comes from a deep-dive into the ’70s: fusion-era works of Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones, the funkier phases of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, and the keyboard wizardry of Don Blackman.

Music by Bergman: Leon Bridges

We can enjoy the powerful voice of soul singer, Leon Bridges, when he presents Good Thingson the 11th  July. This new album highlights the evolution and renewal of the sound of this Fort Worth artist; a work that moves between jazz and soul classics, with shades of hip-hop.  Although he has often been compared to such great artists as Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, the singer has been able to create his own distinctive label.
