Reggie Boone, crafting music in the timeless tradition of classic soul, channels the spirit of luminaries like Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott Heron. Yet, in true soul fashion, his musical creations carry a powerful lyrical payload. Sometimes, that message takes on an enigmatic universality, while at other times, it delves deep into the heart of pressing social issues, the quest for self-improvement, and the redemption found in the devotional life.
Right from the opening sassy saxophone that ushers us into his sonic realm, we’re immersed in a landscape that legends like Marvin Gaye would have revelled in – a musical backdrop that perfectly complements the profound themes being conveyed. Smooth, soulful waves flow effortlessly, the groove infused with subtle funk energy, and the harmonies echo with celestial beauty. But it’s the lyrics that truly resonate, championing love – love for one another, love for our fellow human beings, love for our communities, with harmony as life’s central pillar.
This isn’t just some vague notion; through this tender anthem, Reggie Boon implores us to set aside our differences and unite in peace. When was the last time you encountered a song with such a noble and commendable mission? I’d wager it’s been quite some time.
