I have always been a diehard 90s R&B fan…(think Jodeci before the drugs and R Kelly before we knew he loved teenagers….) I loved Shai and Tevin Campbell, Silkk and LSG, Keith Sweat and Troop, Dru Hill and Aaron Hall. THAT was my era for music. Even though I was a kid and NOT supposed to be listening to some of that, when the “I wanna freak you” line comes on I squeal like a virginal teen.
Lately however, I have been less than thrilled with the current R&B situation out there and have gone back to my underground hip hop loving ways. You can’t go wrong listening to NWA, Mos Def, Kweli and MURS when all else is wrong with the world. Besides, I was less than convinced that honest love making music even still existed. Where was the panty dropping, basement sweating, grinding, hide and go get it music of my youth? Well a few months ago I found it. The glimmer of hope for me was in the brilliant music of local south Floridian George Tandy Jr.
I admit, I’m a tough critic…I rarely give new music a shot. I’m the one that takes the CDs people hand me in the streets and let them pile in the backseat of my car (or use them as drink coasters.) But what sold me on George was that I saw him perform LIVE. The honesty and love in his lyrics literally ooze out of every inch of his beautiful being, his talent on the keyboard matched with the silkiness of his voice brought back my memories of hide and go get it, and the passion in which he emits each note lets you know it’s REAL. Once I got to know him as a person I was even more sold on his mission to heal the world through his music and so the journey began. He’s an enlightened human and a beautiful soul.
Lucky me…I have had the pleasure of hearing all his new music. I swear if I didn’t love you all so much I would keep it to myself and cuddle with it at night. It would be a lie if I told you I didn’t listen to his ultra passionate and VERY sexy tune, “March” about 350 times in two days….literally. “Jaded” is another favorite and “Apologize” is acoustic sounding and make up sex worthy. And ladies, his LOOKS match his SOUND. Nuff said.
Oh, and he’s newly VEGAN. Sexy.
All I can tell you is he has a brand new website and is slowly uploading all his new music onto the site. You better hop on quickly, because this bandwagon is sure to fill up fast.
Warning: Ladies, listen to his music and make sure you have a dry pair of panties lying close by for you to change into. Fellas, listen to it with your lady so he can say all the right things for you to get her in the mood. Ya dig? You’re welcome.
