New R&B/Soul Albums Releases: June 2008

by admin ·

There were many great R&B/Soul album releases this month including the latest from “neo-soul” (not so new at this point) crooner Dwele.

Dwele’s Sketches Of A Man is being deemed a potential classic by old and new fans and sees him writing, producing, arranging and playing all instruments on nearly all of the tracks. “With my music I try to touch on things that everyone can relate to, Dwele says. “Things like, being a musician and trying to find the balance between work and love.” Listen to Sketches of A Man.

We’ve also got a release from our spotlighted artist Hil St. Soul who recently took the time to talk to us about the emotions behind the music of Black Rose. “For me music is a catharsis,” lead vocalist, Hilary Mwelwa told us. “it’s therapeutic. You go through so much in life. We all experience ups and downs.”

Also new are sets from rock/soul legend Solomon Burke, Anthony David, Ashanti, Lalah Hathaway, and even seminal Brazilian artist Sergio Mendes who again teams with contemporary hip-hop/R&B/pop artists.
