Five man harmony group SILK have been working together for something like 25 years, and it’s been 10 years since they last released any new music. That’s not to say they’ve not been busy. Jimmy, John-John, Timzo, LIL G and Big G (still the original members) have been constantly touring with people like Mint Condition, Ginuwine and Tank.

On tour they so impressed producer Wirlie Morris (whose credits include stuff with artists like Charlie Wilson and Dru Hill) that he offered them one of his songs – the sweet ‘Love 4 You 2 Like Me’. The collaboration was so successful that they all decided that the time was right to cut a whole album and March 2016 will see the fruits of the association, the album ‘Quiet Storm’ winning full release on Shanachie records.

We’re told that all the songs on the album are originals but clearly the sound will be defined by that album title. We bring you a full review just as soon as we can, in the meantime a diligent web search will lead you to that lead single, ‘Love 4 You 2 Like Me’.
