In The Spotlight

Joslyn & The Sweet Compression – “Honey, Be”

Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, this seven-piece soul-funk outfit blends vintage inspirations of funk, soul, R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll into an exceptional groovy auditory experience. Lead singer Joslyn Hampton was raised on a steady diet of music, ranging from church choirs to opera, but the influence of Chaka Khan, Jill Scott and Whitney Houston lead to the discovery of her intense soulful voice.

As part of a series of single releases throughout 2018, their latest musical treat is a well-crafted piece of slick, funkalicious grooviness. The buoyant bass line, sunny guitar plucks and airy piano set the mood, while the bubbly brass and her stellar, soul-drenched and sprightly vocals elevate this multifaceted track to new heights of spine-tingling soulful elegance with a bit of funky vitality.
