En Vogue- Hold On

One of my favorite female R&B groups from the 90’s popped up on my Songza this week.


Paul Pfau- Send Your Love

Easy listening on this snow-filled, frozen morning. Some voices are worth melting for.
I admire Paul Pfau a lot.

Below is an excerpt taken from the bio of his website.

Paul Pfau (rhymes with “wow”) is a soulful singer-songwriter and guitar player from the Baltimore-Washington Metro Area. With hands like Hendrix and a voice that croon’s with Sinatra’s charm, Paul brings an authentic sound to the modern era. His unique approach to music combines british blues & New Orleans funk rhythms, with hook-laden pop melodies. After graduating from Shepherd University with an Economics degree in 2010, Paul decided to forgo the “9 to 5″ in order to begin his career as a full-time recording artist and performer. By 2011 he was nominated Best New Artist by the Washington Area Music Association, opened for The Lumineers, and had the distinct pleasure of jamming with the Beach Boys.

Amel Larrieux- For Real

Five years later and I’m still loving this song.
Amel Larrieux is soulful and fantastic. Underrated but that’s alright. It’s about the music.
She’s a former member of the R&B group, Groove Theory. And her new album “Ice Cream Everyday” is pretty sweet.
Also listen to her version of “Sophisticated Lady” with Clark Terry for the Red Hot + Indigo album, a tribute to Duke Ellington, and her vocal stylings on “You Will Rise” with Sweetback.
