I'm trying to catch up on some of the new releases on this weeks show., making his debut on the playlist is Mr Taylormade with his new release "All In Your Love," that's highly recommended also playing new music from Big Daddy E and Teddy B, with music representing the ladies from Mz Connie.

On this weeks Science of Soul I will be featuring the new album from Spearsville, Louisiana native Kiko Pryor entitled"Me & My Thoughts," it's a debut album and comes highly recommended.

Another new name to the Science of Soul this week is Anthony McClary the Philly soulman has delivered a song that is both thought provoking and poignant in these troubled times.

Kiko Pryor biography:-
Kiko Pryor was born on October 24, 1979 in Farmerville, Louisiana to Alton Pryor and Mary Alice Wright-Pryor, and raised in Spearsville, Louisiana. The child of a musical family, Pryor’s love for music started early. Raised in the church, he was able to hone his musical talents playing the piano and singing in the choir. Remnants of that gospel background remain apparent in his music today.
Pryor seeks to revive the old school of R&B and push it into a new direction. In his music, the sound of artists like R. Kelly, Ron Isley, and Aaron Hall meet the deep rhythm of southern gospel. By his own description, “family, love…how much you care about people—that really forms the core of my music”. His song lyrics serve as reflections on practical, everyday experience.


LaToiya Williams

Thanks for stopping by The Science of Soul , this week featured album comes from L.A. based and former member of Snoop Dogg's entourage Ms LaToiya Williams. Her new album "Blue Rose" is a pretty smooth affair that I think you will enjoy, there are 3 tracks from this set included in this weeks playlist. Be sure to checkout the album. Jackson Mississippi soul lady Stephanie Luckett is getting great revues on her new release "Right Thing Wrong Man" it's a real killer cut. The ladies are featured quite heavily on this weeks new release list with NYC soul lady Mel'lisa Morgan we have the title track from her new album "Love Demands" we also have Southern soul lady Karen Wolfe and representing Cleveland Ohio Ms Conya Doss.

Not forgetting the fella's, I have a new release from Patrick Adams called "Smile," a track that I think has a real Sly & The Family Stone feel to it, more you hear it the better it gets. I'm dipping into current albums from Brandon Wattz and Chairmen of the Board Featuring Ken Knox plus Melvin Knight's excellent set "Shades of Us". For the Old Skool folks there are classics from Little Royal, Linda Lewis and a great track from The Ultimate's "I Just Can't Stand It" that was brought to my attention by Susan Benedict over there in Indiana.

Keith Sweat

Welcome to my Science of Soul and with normal service now resumed. I have the regular mixture  of 'classic old school jams' and the best 'new releases' with that keep that old school flavour. Featured Album this week comes from Keith Sweat's "Playing for Keeps"  release. I think Keith is very much an album artist as opposed to just looking for a hit single and this set is a typical example of his quality work, very difficult to select 3 tracks to feature as there is so much great stuff on here but there will be more coming over the next few weeks. I am a little behind with new music, so this weeks show includes some of what I didn't get chance to include before my trip.

Dynamic Superiors
Chi Town Soul man Slique Jay Adams is back with a new single called "So Good," and there is a great new song from Detroit artist Big L with "If I Knew Then," it's the first single from his upcoming EP  named "Round 1," and if  this is anything to go by it's gonna be a classic. It was great to see The Dynamic Superiors on my recent trip, there latest release "Show Me" was a real show stopper! so listen out, think you will enjoy. Also today tracks come from Cool Million, Bfly LadyDi and from Houston, Texas, The Suffers.

Wil Hart (Delphonics)
I have also included a recent song from the lovely Ms Uvee Hayes with Mr Mellow himself Ty Causey.
UK label Soul Junction Records continue to unearth some real gems and their latest  is from The Internationals is no exception to the ruler, as always it's a double A-Side 7 inch single,  I have one side this week and one scheduled for next weeks show. Be sure to get these ASAP they are pressed in very limited quantities and wont last to long. There is lots for the old school folks including The Delfonics who did an amazing set at there recent show in Richmond, Va. If you get a chance to catch them live be sure to take it. Ok, its music time just hit the play button sit back and relax..

Case biography via Allmusic.com
A native New Yorker, Case got his start in the music biz in the '90s, singing backup on albums by several renowned R&B artists (such as Usher). Signed to the Def Jam label in the mid-'90s, Case issued his self-titled debut in 1996, followed by Personal Conversation in 1999 and Open Letter in 2001. On the latter release, Case wrote each song with a different person in mind ("A Song for Skye" was written for his daughter, while the tracks "Love of My Life" and "Shine" were inspired by the great Stevie Wonder). Case was joined by such big-name producers as Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Tim & Bob. In 2004 he asked to be released from his Def Jam contract in order to launch his own label, Indigo Blue. In 2009 The Rose Experience became the first release for the label. He switched to Real Talk Entertainment for 2010's Here, My Love, and moved to eOne for 2015's Heaven's Door.

Featured Artist biography-
Bléz is a DC born, MD raised vocalist and songwriter. Classically trained in voice, Bléz graduated from Duke Ellington School of The Arts in NW Washington, DC. After Graduating she went on to start her music career as a session vocalist working with then Sony producer Reese Johnson. Soon after Bléz joined her first band and began her journey as a gigging vocalist around DC, MD and VA. After some disappointments on the local scene Bléz stepped away from music for a few years to pursue other interests but was called back to music and she hit the ground running. In 2004 this DC native left the United States to go and live in Thailand working as a full time singer with an international band. Visiting countries such as Cambodia, Singapore and Japan just to name a few. Once she returned home, Blez once again jumped onto the local music scene after joining the band Second Coming. Shortly there after she was also hired to perform with Marcus Young and Infinite who then took her back overseas to the Middle East to perform for the troops via Armed Forces Entertainment. The group toured 13 cities in 3 weeks. April 2009 marked a major milestone in this song birds career because she was chosen the winner in a singing contest. First prize was a chance to sing a duet with none other than Jennifer Hudson at Constitution Hall during the Robin Thicke J.Hud tour. Bléz joined Jennifer onstage to sing “And I Am Telling You” for a capacity crowd. Video footage of this performance is still on Youtube. She has shared the stage with some top national artists such as Marsha Ambrosias, Chrisette Michelle, MC Lyte, Vivian Green, Biz Markie and Kem artist L’Renee and her second single “Black Girl Magic” spent 11 weeks on SiriusXM Heart and Soul’s Platinum 20 playlist. The latest single, “MCE Man Crush Everyday”, from her forthcoming album Love, Life, Emotion The Experience Vol.1 went to #1 on the AmazonUK chart for new releases after only 1 week! This rising star is shining bright on her way to the top of the charts. (firstexperiencerecords.com)

Stan Mosley biography:-
Stan Mosley was born in Chicago, IL. By Stan growing up in the church, his passion for music started there with the encouragement of his mother. Throughout his youth, Stan was praised continually for his vocals which lead him to perform professionally. Presently, Stan Mosley has been performing professionally for over 46 years. Mosley began singing in 1969 and In 1974 he moved to East St. Louis, IL. and joined a group named The Sharpees, which later toured as a back-up band for Shirley Brown. In 1976 Mosley returned to Chi-town, and he spent years performing on the city’s extensive club circuit, but had yet to be signed let alone release a record. “At some point in time,” Mosley recalls, “I have either opened for or performed in the same venue as just about every major soul or blues act in the business.” His acclaim grew and, for two years running, he captured the important Chicago Music Award (in 1982 and 1983) for Best Male R & B Vocalist. By the mid-eighties, however, like so many of his R&B peers, he found the climate for adult R&B too hostile to continue.
