Video: Raphael Saadiq
Grey. Drab. The only thing making me feel better on this icy cold morning is listening to Raphael Saadiq.
About a year ago, my brother left Raphael’s album, The Way I See It, by my front door. Ever since then, I find myself listening to is at least one a week….and I’m not sick of it yet!
Think Marvin Gaye meets Prince – Raphael’s sound is a throwback to classic, old school Motown/soul. This triple threat singer-writer-producer, also plays every instrument on The Way I See It. And as for his vocals, well they bathe even the bleakest of days in honey!
PS: Raphael is certainly no newcomer. In fact, he was part of 80’s group Toni! Tony! Tone! Now, that’s a blast from the past…
