Mister King Take Shape
Mister King Take Shape Snippets
I originally read about this album on Soul Treasures but returned to it after Dave Cole reviewed it for In The Basement magazine. If you listen to the above snippets you can hear that this is very different.
Here's some background info:
Mister King, born and raised Philadelphia. In total love with the art of expression! carrying the torch that his momma, the late, great "back to soul" Anna king of the "James Brown Review" passed on to him. He's hungry and he's searching for that place where Jimi Hendrix or John Coltrane fed us from. He dares to be different in a world of "junk food" music! And soon you will witness open pages of his passionate journal, with words that are as sweet as molasses to words that would cut you down to the root. His amazing new album "Take Shape" bursts through every bit of wicked chapters he has endured in his life and will show you just where he is standing this very moment.
You can get copies from CD Baby
