Diane Shaw

Welcome to the first show of 2018 , I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. My first Featured Album of 2018 comes from UK soul lady Diane Shaw, This follow up to her well received debut album (Love, Life & Strings 2015) this though is aptly titled "Second Chance" it's always tough to follow a very successful debut, but Ms Shaw as managed to pull it off. I think this lady will grow in stature as the years progress a great voice and classy performer. I have selected 3 tracks that I really enjoy but it was a tough choice its a great album.

Kansas City soul seems to be on the rise we have new releases from two of the city's favourite soul brothers Le'Velle who as just completed his debut album "Bring Back The Love" and Ricky Dotson who dropped his excellent "All Together" album in late 2017. Must not leave out the nations capital Washington DC, Marc Staggers' back with a great new album "Crusin" its full of great tracks and you will be hearing more over the coming weeks. There are plenty of old school classics in the mix so sit back and enjoy, please be sure to tell a friend about the Science of Soul.

Diane Shaw biography:-
A new Soul Star 20 years in the making…
Although you might not have heard of her, Diane Shaw is one of the country's most experienced live performers with her own loyal following, and was once called “The UK’s most famous unknown singer”. Having toured the UK and overseas for nearly 20 years, Diane Shaw has performed in front of more audiences than most chart artists today. Supporting various Soul Stars such as:
Motown legends; Martha Reeves, Brenda Holloway & Chris Clark
Northern Soul legends; Tommy Hunt, Sidney Barnes & Geno Washington.
Disco legends; Sister Sledge & George McCrae.
Grammy award winning artists; Jazz legends Kirk Whalum & Peter White

Diane is a performer moulded on a calibre of artist not often seen today. Still young enough to shake a tail-feather, yet old enough to have grown up singing and learning from the best. The soul and spirit of the great Divas runs through her....
Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross & the Supremes, the list goes on..
Music with the classic sounds of a time gone by, freshly delivered to a new audience, and a new generation of Soul and Motown music lovers, a mixture of young and old craving for something new in today’s manufactured music scene. (soultracks)
