Newcomers - Groove StuGroove Stu - Am I dreaming (Soul Theory)


Just who is this new group called Groove Stu I'm sure you're asking myself. Well they hail from the same state as Dru Hill's Sisqo (Balltimore, Maryland to be precise) and 'musically' they are for real in the realist sense of the word.

Meet the band: they are Jerrod 'Rod' Simpson (vocals), Howard Brooks (drums), Myron 'Big Huss' Missouri (bass guitar), Omar Sharif (Keyboards, vocals), Ramel Nicholson (keyboards, background vocals), Tiffany Countess (vocals) and Tony Love (lead guitar, vocals).

Although it's plain to see that comparisons will arrive to the likes of Seek and Cooly's Hot Box, they do have their own distinctive style about them and manages to showcase that on their debut set Authentic 4.10 Sessions

On review here is their excellent reindition of the Atlantic Starr classic 'Am I Dreaming'. The song starts with a faded into intro that leads to soothing harmonizing vocals and misty strings. Once into the song you're treated to a strong vocal performance from Tiffany who does seems to possess some pipes on her. Production is top class on this and if this song is any indication of what you can get on the full length, then you won't be disappointed I can tell you.

Be sure to give this song a listen to and request it frequent and often once you hear it because it 's truly one of the better remakes I've heard in a long time - A TY-D Pick indeed.

Very Soulful - Candy Dulfer Candy Dulfer - My Love : (Eagle Rock)


What can you say about a talent as lovely as Candy Dulfer. The sexy saxophonist has been in the spotlight ever since she was a little girl seeing that she was the daughter of prominent saxophonistHans Dulfer.

Candy started playing the sax at the age of 6 and got to be very good at it in a short amount of time. Her raw ability to learn notes quickly often put her ahead of the rest and seeing that, her father Hans soon recognize the nature of talent his little girl has and enters her into the local brassband Jeugd Doet Leven in Zuiderwoude. It was during her time here that she switches playing from soprano to alto saxophone.

Gaining valuable experience and (as well as exposure) was destined for the bright young star as she joined her father on stage for her very first solo at the age of 11. From there she appeared with her father on several of his gigs and played at various venues in and around her hometown of Amsterdam, The Netherlands making a name for herself and forming her first band called Funky Stuff at the tender age of 14. The band thrives and before long they find themselves opening for his Purple badness himself Prince. Impressed by her talent he invited her on his world tour but seeing that she wanted to be a headliner herself declined and met up with Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics and the rest as they say.....is history

On review today is 'My Love' the new or soon-to-be released single taken from her latest album, 'Right in my Soul'. Although the album's been out for a while, this track truly represents her in a more soulful mood as she sings a storm too. Slight whistle tones, a thumping bass and of course her saxophone playing highlights this track as one of the best on the album. Production is excellent as the song is produced by the hot English production and songwriting duo Jon Kingsley Hall and George Stewart.

This track is a firm favourite and should sit well on radio stations playlist everywhere, it wouldn't surprise me that it lands in the Top Ten on any of their playlist countdown. The album (which is also excellent) is in stores now you might want to add this one to your Christmas shopping list in the near future. A terrific song from the very sexy Candy and a TY-D Pick indeed.
