Nigel Hall is something of a modern soul marvel, garnering the praises of some of the best in the biz for his soaring vox and an unflinching command for the soul music canon as a musician, songwriter and arranger. He’s shared stages with many of the game’s most formidable (okay) players, including Questlove, Eric Krasno, The Nth Power and many of your favorite crafters of modern-day soul.
With his forthcoming solo record Ladies & Gentleman…Nigel Hall well on the way, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for your boy and put your ears to some slick and sweet new frequencies. OKP is happy to bring you the premiere of “Don’t Change For Me,” a stone-cold-groove built over slinky guitar licks and a running bass line, anchored by a diamond-strong knock on the drums and, of course, Hall’s brilliant squalls, providing a much-needed update on southern-fried soul a la Booker T. & The MGs (also known as the Stax sound). Hall’s new record is slated to arrive on November 13th with high-powered features from some of those aforementioned giants, as well as 8-string guitar maven Charlie Hunter and NOLA great Ivan Neville.
