In The Spotlight

Carlton Jumel Smith – “Love Our Love Affair”

This soul brother and actor grew up in New York listening to his mothers soul records of Wilson Pickett, Barry White and Aretha Franklin, however it was a James Brown concert at the Apollo that changed his life. Composing music in the tradition of the soul legends of yore, he’s performed all over the world. He’s also acted in a few movies such as “Liberty Heights” in 1999, portraying his childhood hero.

Sounding like a long lost sonic treasure, his new single pays homage to the glory days of Motown and Stax. Taken from his album “1634 Lexington Avenue”, named after the address of his childhood home, he personifies the vintage feel of classic soul. The mellow rhythm, breezy guitar strums and ear-stroking brass creates a timeless sound, while his raw, sensuous vocals give you something to love.
