I discovered this independent artist a few days ago. His name is Curtis Harding. I really, really like his music. Well, to be honest, I was drawn by the old school energy his album offers. Even his album cover, his pose, hair, presence, is very reminiscent of the Blaxploitation era (which I love). In fact, if it were not for the tattoos, I could have easily assumed that this was a 1970s album. Released this year, his titled song “Face Your Fear,” from his album “Face Your Fear (2017),” sounds almost like I was listening to a reincarnated Curtis Mayfield. He even kind of looks like him. How eerie…. However, I could not find specific information on the late Mayfield’s children. So, I’ll just assume they’re not related. The instruments were beautifully composed, even without the lyrics it would have been enjoyable. Although, I wished he would have annunciation better on this song. I’d say the newest sounding song on this album, is the song called “Welcome To My World,” which I also like very much. I have to say that this has become my most favorite new album I’ve heard in a really long time, since Jill Scott’s album “Woman (2015).” If you’d like to support this very talented independent artist, you can purchase his album on BandCamp, or add album to your Spotify and listen.
