Coffey are the new R&B group that consists of brothers
Clay and Jason
Coffey who has gathered a loyal following since their
excellent debut single 'Hard to Get'
dropped last year.
The brothers who hail from
Lexington, Kentucky grew up in the church, and as brother Clay
explains "From elementary school through high school it was
all about the church choir and the high school choirs and bands."
Their story literally is
an overnight success. It begins in the late nineties, the brothers
were looking to break out of Kentucky and try to make the big
time. They met up with Boston Celtics forward Walter
McCarty, who was attending the University of Kentucky.
He heard their demo tape through a college friend and invited
them to record in Boston. Later
on their management team brought them to the attention of Motown
Head Kedar Massenburg and
the rest is history.
Their latest effort 'Rocket
Love' is an updated version of Stevie
Wonder's classic masterpiece which continues in the
same tradition with classic vocals arrangements and excellent
production. Taken from their debut release as well as the excellent
compilation album Conception
- An Interpretation of Stevie Wonder Songs this one
I do believe to be a great track indeed.
Their debut album is not
available as of yet but will be in stores soon so look out for
this one in your favourite record shop. A TY-D
