I’ve never heard of ’em and I’d be surprised if you have…. talking about a harmony group called STRENGTH & POWER. I’m told that they’ve been around for almost 40 years and in their latest incarnation they are: Ivan Rush, Kevin Satterfield, and Yahya Kamau. Hailing from Washington DC, they seem to have slipped under the radar… till now. You see several soul tastemakers have been playing both sides of their latest single…. ‘Loving You’ / ‘Eye Of Your Storm’ and getting very positive responses. Easy to hear why, both cuts are proper, old-fashioned harmony soul – the kind we thought had long ceased being made.
‘Eye Of Your Storm’ is particularly sweet and will recall those great cuts by outfits like the Whispers, the Dramatics –even (from more recent times) Tony, Toni Tone. It’s clear from what they craft that the trio have oodles of soul experience under their belts.
STRENGTH & POWER- Loving You / Eye Of Your Storm – Out Now
