BRENDA HOLLOWAY & RAGS MOODY III: Same Page (SoulMusic Records/Platinum Garage Recordings)

Take internationally-renowned Motown legend Brenda Holloway – known for her classic hits, “Every Little Bit Hurts,” “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” and “When I’m Gone” – and one of her musical ‘discoveries’ Alabama-born mutli-talented Rags Moody III, team, them with award-winning producer/songwriter Preston Glass and it’s a perfect combination!

Written by Brenda, Rags and Preston, the heart-stirring “Same Page” hearkens back to the golden duets of Peaches & Herb, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell and Ashford & Simpson, with its infectious and memorable hook and soulful vocal delivery from Brenda – who remains much beloved particularly in the UK where she’s justifiably considered one of the true Motown greats – and Rags whose track “Family Man” from the recently-released “Preston Glass Presents: Love & Compassion” album – has garnered much appreciation among audiences who appreciate traditional soul music.

WILLIE BRADLEY (ft GERALD ALSTON): IN THE MEANTIME (SoulMusic Records/Platinum Garage Recordings)

Bold, yet simultaneously charming; edgy, yet at the same time beautiful; these seemingly opposite adjectives might well-describe the music of artist/trumpeteer Willie Bradley  but also fittingly tell about the man himself! Willie Bradley’s music brings together many varied styles, taking smooth jazz to a whole new level.



On his new CD project “Going With The Flow”, Willie (who has played consistently with the Original James Brown band in the US, Europe and Japan) has worked together with multi-award winning producer Preston Glass, (Kenny G., George Benson, Earth, Wind & Fire and many more) they have brought together a fantastic group of songs as well as a cast of stellar musicians with varied styles (Gregg Manning, Gerald Alston from The Manhattans, Bob Baldwin, Club Nouveau, and Jerry Martini of Sly & The Family Stone).

The first single, “In The Meantime” (written by Preston) is particularly timely in a world of constant change; it is also the first release of many planned in the association between renowned soul music entrepreneur David Nathan’s SoulMusic Records and Preston’s Platinum Garage Recordings.
