“There’s a lot of adventure in R&B at the moment & I also noticed an abundance of great underground vocalists in London. With “YLD is wild” I wanted to showcase the best I could find” says Geoff. “All of the singers have their own individual styles and it was a real treat working with them in my studio. Kelly & Robin have experience of theatrical productions in London’s West End, and are both blessed with big powerful voices. That led me to finding Liisi who played Deena Jones in the London stage version of “Dreamgirls”. Liisi brought a chilled out LA vibe, whereas Courtney sounds 100% London to me, which I love. I have known Liz for a few years and have always wanted to collaborate with her, she has a very cool 80s influence in her vocal style.”
Lead single “Give Me Your Love” is a 21st century update of the Curtis Mayfield classic from the 1972 blaxploitation film “Superfly”. The rest of the album is a lush transatlantic funky soulful haze to explore and get lost in.
