Detroit has ever been a musical hot bed and the latest hot talent from the Motor City is the lauded Kathy Kosins. Ms KK is working up the release of her album ‘Uncovered Soul’ – due in September. Already we’re hearing great things about the Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter, Ed Motta) produced long player… most of all the soul world is sitting up and taking notice of the lead single, ‘Could You Be Me’ which features Paul Randolph (see recent news item).

The Opolopo mix of the tune is currently winning the plaudits while Gilles Petersen has licensed it for his upcoming ‘Brownwood Bubblers’ compilation. Proper grown up soul music!
