In The Spotlight

Stealth ft. The Dap Kings – “Black Heart”

Hailing from Birmingham, this British singer and songwriter finds his influence in the rich and emotive soundscapes of blues and soul. Songs from his 2016 debut EP “Intro” have been used in the TV series “Suits” and “Black Ink Crew”. Inspired by Howlin’ Wolf, Etta James and Bill Whithers, he utilized the dark tone of his voice and personal lyrics to produce an one-of-a-kind soulful sound.

The addition of the blazing brass of the legendary Dap Kings to his vintage-soaked, soul-dripping vocals is a match made in funky heaven. The buoyant bass line, sanguine rhythm and the euphonious horns melt together into a sweet-sounding and intoxicating groove, while the colorful, retro shine of his voice adds a touch of rhapsodic retro glamour to this extravagant portion of glitzy soul.

RuthAnne – “Love Again”

This award winning Irish singer and songwriter started honing her craft at just 8 years old.  Her career started at 17 as a songwriter for other artists, like Britney Spears, Bebe Rexha and Niall Horan. In 2007 she won an ASCAP  award for Jojo’s “Too Little Too Late”. Drawing inspiration from Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys, she debuted her solo sound in 2017 fusing gritty 90s R&B with 70s storytelling.

Taking a trip down the soul side, her new single starts off with the vulnerable approach of just an electric guitar and her preeminent voice. With a swelling melodious body of a lively piano and a sprightly gospel choir broadening the multitude of harmonious layers, it finds its crescendo with her compelling, soulful vocals and an injection of vibrant brass, making it easy to love this tune again and again.
