SubSoul…..Affinity

SubSoul…..Affinity

…. Affinity: the quality of arousing interest, being attractive or something that attracts; the force by which one object attracts another….

…I hope that you’ll agree, and find our love to be,  one of the most radiant….Affinities….

SubSoul Fridays Vol. 28….Before I Let You

SubSoul Fridays Vol. 28….Before I Let  You

What’s going one my people. It’s Friday, it’s Friday, it’s the end of week and the last day….and it’s time for another edition of SubSoul Fridays. This week, we’re gonna go back…way back, back in time to chat about an old school R&B sanger (this dude didn’t sing….he sang, if you know what I mean)….Mr. Dave Hollister.

Dave Hollister is a real veteran of the 90′s Generation of R&B, back when cats could really sing and wrote music that had real meaning to it. You know, songs that you could sing in your girls ear about real love, and not just about banging that night. (Not that I’m hating on the young cats out here now, but I’m honestly not impressed). Songs like this:


and this:


But this post isn’t about BLACKstreet, even though “Before I Let You Go” was probably the hit that put Dave Hollister on the map (even though his voice had been heard before on the hook of  Tupac’s “Brenda Got A Baby”). Dave parlayed the success of BLACKstreet’s first album into a very successful solo career of his own releasing 4 solo albums (Ghetto Hymns, Chicago 85…The Movie, Things in the Game Done Changed, and Real Talk) between 1999 and 2003 before transitioning to Gospel, releasing 2 gospel albums in 2006 and 2008. Well, Mr. Hollister is back and in the studio working on his fifth solo R&B album. In anticipation of the new album, Dave has hit the road and is touring again this year will probably be in a city near you very soon. All of my people in Indianapolis can check him out this Saturday at the IBE Summer Celebration All White Party. I’m looking forward to seeing him perform and hearing the new music he’s been working on.

Here are a few of my favorite tracks to educate some and let others reminisce from Mr. Dave Hollister.

Until Next Time…Soulfully Yours,

Blueprint….

Blueprint….

…You were the blueprint of what it was, how it felt, to be loved…

… Near or far, heart to heart, through the storm, death to part,  is not enough…
