‘Force Of Life’ is the new EP from native New Yorker, LENORA JAYE. Over the last several years she’s been working out of Atlanta chiefly with Astral 22 – the alter ego of writer and producer Armand Tulumello and owner of Trans Phatt Records. Lenora has had plenty of songs on Astral 22 albums and collections and her own ‘The Story’ long player won her plenty of friends.
The new four track EP (produced by Astral 22) is an amalgam of R&B, Soul, House, Disco, Jazz and Brazilian rhythms and Ms Jaye is on best sultry form throughout – especially on the samba shuffle that is ‘For You’ and the surging title track that is just made for the European modern soul crowd –the kind of tune that you’d expect to grace an Expansion compilation. This one comes with a huge SJF recommendation!
