There are certain classic artists whose music comes to mind when you need a soundtrack to an intimate evening – Anita Baker, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Barry White. But it’s singer Wade O. Brown who is setting his sights on revitalizing the genre of lovemaking music with his US debut album, ‘All Night, All Love’ (Groove United Productions). The first single “Maybe” is impacting Urban Contemporary stations around the country at press time.
“I really wanted to develop a theme around “love-making” songs that would appeal to my peers,” said 30-year old Brown. ” Bedroom songs that are sexy and sensual, but tasteful.”
His music mixes an old-school sound with a new-school edge. Brown’s smooth, confident vocals drive all the tracks on ‘All Night, All Love,’ making the album an ideal soundtrack for an intimate evening of lovemaking. A fresh voice in R&B, Brown has already performed with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Quincy Jones, Roger Troutman, Glenn Lewis and Joe, the artist.
He made ‘All Night, All Love’ for mature adults who want music that turns them on, lyrics they can relate to all with an emotionally powerful delivery. To maintain the old school sound Brown worked with industry heavyweights Barry Eastmond (Anita Baker, Whitney Houston) and Daryl Simmons (Destiny’s Child, Babyface, Pink). For the new school edge he worked with current hitmakers Estiverne, Kipper Jones (Brandy, Vanessa Williams) and others.
A Detroit native who makes his part-time home in Toronto, Canada, Brown started cutting his chops as a self-taught keyboardist, playing and singing in his church band and choir before striking out on his own. His songwriting/recording career kicked off after partnering with writer/producer Wil Van Zyl and landing publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Van Zyl now runs Brown’s record label Groove United. He also made an appearance on the Award-winning Showtime series, “Soul Food.”
Wade’s US CD release, ALL LOVE, ALL NIGHT, will be released on the Groove United Entertainment imprint, and independently distributed by Bayside/33rd Street Records. In-store date is set for August 23.
