at once back-to-basics & startlingly current, Album opener "Hold Out" kicks things off at full-volume, embodying the classic gospel ethos that everything's going to work out fine if you just keep the faith.

It's a notion that turns up throughout the record & it reflects Reed's resilient spirit in the face of disappointment. Elsewhere on the album, he nods to the music's church roots, singing of fear of the devil on 'The Strangest Thing' & damnation on 'Cut Ya Down' (the only non-original on the record & a song he learned performing with Boston's Silver Leaf Gospel Singers, founded in 1945). Boston-via-Mississippi singer the "king of rhythm & soul," while Rolling Stone hailed him as "classic soul & horn-heavy R&B soaked with the blues". 'my way home' captures the essence of his sound - A sound that, over everything else, prizes feeling, energy &, yes, soul. for fans of st.paul & the broken bones, leon bridges & nathaniel rateliff.
