Pièce de Résistance

Always in search of something new, Youtube led me to the Netherlands again.  I follow the music scene pretty heavily, and was surprised to learn this video has been out for over a year, yet I hadn't seen nor heard the likes of Steffen Morrison.  From the moment Mr. Morrison sets his vocals on high it feels like you've been transported back in time to Otis Redding and Donny Hathaway, while possessing the modern stylings of Seal. What a combination! The polished ease of his baritone seizes your attention as he croons comfortably over the uptempo track. His debut has yet to be given a release date, but judging from the collection of songs on his website, it's not to far off. "Damn These Eyes," "Finally Here," and "Take Care Of  You" all lead me to believe a pièce de résistance is on the verge. Check him out. Support the artist.
