Darrian Ford

Thanks for supporting the Science of Soul, on this weeks show I will be featuring the latest album from singer/actor/dancer Darian Ford, This guy does it all, a Chicago native who has a great sense of tradition, his vocal style kinda reminds me of the late Al Jarreau, that's no bad thing, "New Standards" is a polished set of mainly original songs with a couple of classic covers thrown in but done in Darrian's unique style..this album is something very different and I think you will enjoy.

There is also current music from Southern Soul lady Adrena I'm also dipping into the latest album projects from Robert H Fowler & Tanya Holt, the album "Can We" is produced by Dwayne Palmer of Lovebeams productions it has been very well received plus there is a track from Brian Courtney Wilson, his new set aptly titled "A Great Work" is garnering a great deal of interest with Gospel music field. As always I like to bring you a little something different yet still retain the Soul. There are lots of Old Skool classics as always some well known some not so known but all quality music none the less. Find a quiet place sit back and enjoy the Science of Soul and please tell your friends to tell their friends it's how I grow.
