Rhonda Dorsey

BT - I'm not amused!
Good to have you back at the Science of Soul site, my apologies to everyone who have sent Facebook messages. I will reply as soon as I am able the site was apparently hacked last week but should be back to normal by the time you read this. It's also been a traumatic week, technology wise, changing Internet provider is so stressful, lol. Remember you can also reach me via the Bridge 102.5 FM email at: bill.randle@thebridgeradio.net so please stay in touch. That's all the crap out of the way..... now on to the good stuff.

Rhonda Dorsey
This weeks feature artist is a young lady from Philadelphia P.A., Rhonda Dorsey. Her album Chocolate Sounds came out at the tail-end of last year and was recorded in Los Angeles. Dorsey is currently based in Switzerland so you can imagine it's quite a diverse project but very interesting, none the less. I hope you like the selections I've chosen and check-out the biography link to find out more about the lovely Ms Dorsey.

The bad news seems just to keep coming this year, as you are probably aware by now we have lost Cecil Womack and the legendary Donald Byrd. It makes you realise how blessed we are to still have their music left behind forever. Nice that so many of you enjoyed the Chris Jasper feature last week my Bridge FM colleague Mark Williams had him as a live guest via the telephone from his New York home and if you missed that on that  Thursday afternoon I hope to put it on the site soon so you can also listen to it.

Don't forget any artists or labels out there stay in touch we are always looking for new material to share and expose to the Science of Soul family. That's it from me this week so as always sit back enjoy the music. [due to technical problems this week the podcast is heard only through one speaker]

Rhonda Dorsey biography

 Growing up in Philly with her two brothers, music was everywhere. There was always a radio or stereo in the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, the bedrooms, the basement and yes, even in the bathrooms. So no wonder music plays a pivotal part in Rhonda's life. She remembers learning all of the lyrics to Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" album and staying up all night performing it over and over again with her younger brother. It's still one of her all-time favorites: "Marvin had a very special way of communicating life through his music, with heart, soul and sincerity.  I admired that and thought, mmh one day..." Well, that day has arrived; now she too tells her soulful stories from the heart in song. Her music gives her listener something to feel, reminisce about, dream of, long for... more: http://www.rhondadorsey.com/en/
