If you’re looking for raw, driven soul music from an artist with a raw, driven soul voice, Kelly Moneymaker may have been sent here specifically for you. her new album, ‘Stone’, has all the potential in the world to be a cult classic, and is a perfect demonstration of how a strong vocal and well chosen genre can elevate both sides of the coin.
The track above is the pacy album opener, but in addition to all the foot stomping soul there are also ballads, gospel moments, epic funk lines and a touch of blues to enjoy too.
All of this great stuff is tied together by a voice which can easily compared to some of the greats in the genre. At certain times in the album, you could be listening to Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Gloria Gaynor and various others – and, when you think about it, that’s a recommendation in itself.
