Man there has been some good stuff landing on my desk lately!
I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of Sky Hi’s new Album – Testify and it’s got me jammin through the days with a smile on. Some one must have told them I like horns and strats…
Ten (eleven) tracks of driving funky soul that dares you not to dance to it. The group have been honing their style together for nearly a decade and they’ve put a polished edge on it that cuts straight to the heart of the groove. Whether it’s a bossa beat, straight funk, soulful salsa, or borderline jazz, these guys have it down.
The horns lay a perfect foundation for DeRobert “Dee” Adams’ powerful voice. Adams’ vocal goes from brazen to (dare I say it about another dude? ) seductive and pulls the listener into his positive messages with strong images and heart-felt delivery.
Adams and Sky Hi, based in Nashville, have been touring the south-east for a long time, moving audiences across the floor all over. That live experience really shines on “Testify”, which is to be released on November 8, 2011.
I haven’t been able to pick a favorite, yet. I’ll have to listen to them all a few dozen times over again, first. Let them know which you like in the comments below or by visiting their website or reverb nation page.
