On the making of Soul Sessions Down By The River


I believe being a musician can bring a little bit of integrity and balance to a radio show. Especially being an artist in the Genre of R&B/Soul, because it just seems like all the R&B today sounds the same and there's really support for Soul artists that have been making quality music for so long. They say "Soul Music is Missing, Soul Music is Lost", but I say Soul Music has been here, it's just that that ARTISTS making the SOUL MUSIC IS NOT getting the SUPPORT that THEY DESERVE. Hopefully I can lend a hand...

I believe this show has already made me respect the Soul Artists of the yester-years and of Today even more. When people give myself or my Team praise about the show, they say how much they enjoy listening in because it's so different from what a lot of stations are playing & that I give light to lesser known Soul Artists that in my opinion are keeping this R&B/Soul Genre Alive. So I'll say that this show will bring a deeper appreciation for making quality music that has a message for people willing to listen.
