Soul Excursion Vol 70 – Dionne Farris

Still searching for the best article or written word of her. I’ll be sure to include in this post when it’s found. There are some people who can describe an artist with such simple yet honorable ease. dionnef

Dionne Farris and her works are a must have for collectors and songwriters.

So good to have her continue the journey of sound. There is no comparison to Dionne Farris…she is intuition.



WILD SEED – WILD FLOWER is my fallback album…no words give justice to this epic release.


” as always, I reserve the right to edit my post – this is a vol in the making…”

Soul Excursion Vol 68 – Sandra St. Victor

Sandra St. Victor


Pull Your Pants Up

This track made me chuckle. It’s a take on a moment or urge you may have had.

SSV may be known from The Family Stand and she continues to shine throughout time. The video below is inspired by the sock hop 60’s TV music shows and I may have seen Gabrielle Union as a dancer in this one.

Thank you Shanachie Entertainment for the youtube post.

or links on art, fashion, interviews, downloads, contests, artists to watch and much more. There are dozens of links to related content from sites I imagine are in partnership with or associated with Nu-Soul Magazine. This outlet breaks up the monotony of  in-your- face- distractions…they go in on the sounds. So check them out and let me know how the visit was for you. I enjoyed the link to URB Magazine and Beyondjazz, not to forget to mention Giant Step. Nu-Soul Magazine is about bridging the gap between the timeless sounds of R&B/soul and the constantly evolving world of electronic music culture, with an emphasis on funk, soul, urban lifestyle, and underground culture…

Soul Excursion 65 – L’Renee

Such a joy to find talented singers so close to home. L’Renee is not your predictable soul singer. Soul singer, for moi, is someone who ooozes with purity in delivery. She was recently introduced by Kem @ a movie premiere. Below are three of her seven album releases and check her flow on youtube – so refreshing. From what I understand, she has an upcoming album release – Looking forward!

 Give We The Pride II

Give We The Pride

Wow, “G”, took me back with this gem of a find. Thank you for putting me on to this feature of the legendary Mavis Staples. This post will be updated, when I locate in my archives, with video of the 70’s concert where The Staple Singers sing Respect Yourself.  After first listen, Sade came to thought singing “…love is stronger than pride. I still really really love you”. With all things in its proper place that Sade reference is not a comparison and more of an appreciation for those whom stumbled. As always, there’s something out there for every point of view and this Give We The Pride view is cool with me. It’s not condescending and as a matter of fact it reminds me of a post seen that read “To love a person is to see all of their magic, and to remind them of it when they have forgotten” .
