TYRA LEVONE is a gospel-reared soulstress from Washington DC, and her ‘Testimony. A Soul Set Free’ album from last year impressed everyone who really understands what proper modern soul is all about. The searing ballad ‘This Is My Time’ showed the influence on Tyra of her heroines – Aretha, Gladys Knight and Anita Baker.
Ms L has just issued a new single … a luscious modern soul groove ‘Keep Stepping’. Yes, it’s perfect for the steppers crew but it’s much more than just a big dance item. For starters, it’s big on optimism and though not specifically a gospel tune it will uplift with its feel and its message – “This is my call…This is my space… You can’t stop me – Keep Stepping”. But it’s Tyra’s full-on soulful vocal that really carries the day – hugely recommended!
