Lovers of Soul will be very happy to hear the 2017 release of the new "Soul Survivor" LP by one of the most talented soul artists, "Will Downing". He's been around for at least 30 years & has 20+ solo recordings under his belt and still going strong.
Will’s longevity is his clear vision: “I started my music career in the early 80s with, in some ways, more talented artists who had better management and connections and who were willing to do whatever it took to make it. People often asked me why I wouldn't conform to the music of the time and I would reply that I knew my strengths musically. I stuck to my convictions, while I saw a lot of artists come and go through the years. In an industry that is youth driven I consider myself blessed to still be relevant, still in the race and one of the few Soul Survivors of my era.”
Check out Will's smash hit duet with "Avery Sunshine", “I'm Feeling The Love".
