In The Spotlight

Laura Rain & The Caesars – “If I Can’t Have You”

Hailing from the motor city itself, Detroit, this silver-tongued songstress harnesses the soul of a bygone era. Together with her husband George Friend, they debuted their love for Memphis soul, juke-joint blues and Detroit funk & R&B on their 2013 album “Electrified”. Performing live all over the US and Canada, they played festivals and clubs like Edmonton Blues and the legendary Blues Cruise.

Starting with a slick 70s funky vibe turns out to be one of the many surprises their new single has in store. Soon her expressive vocals hug the tune, honeyed with immaculate vintage soul, while the rhythm changes to a mild driving drum and the electronic keys add another touch of flared jeans into the mix. It’s a remarkable blend of 70s funk and 60s soul, generously soaked in their own creative juices.
