As reported last month, SHIRLEY DAVIS (a London-born soul sister) is readying the release of a new album  ‘Keep On Keepin’ On’ (cover above). The LP’s title is a nod to advice given to her by the late, great Sharon Jones; so you can probably guess the kind of sound that Ms D and her band – the Silverbacks  – deal in. Yep – old school, organic, tough soul and funk as witnessed by their last single, the pairing of ‘Stay Firm’ with ‘Culture Vulture’.

Want more whilst waiting for the album? Well Shirley and the band have just launched another powerful, full frontal single, ‘Take Out The Trash’ – it’s fast and frantic with a real Daptone flavour but given what we’ve just said , no surprise there! ‘Take Out The Trash’ is out now via Lovemonk Records
