Harding says that soul music and his music "speak for themselves." Yep, he's right. Chec out the track, Keep On Shining, below. Harding, from Michigan, sang back up for CeeLo Green.
There have been a few other acts moving in this direction in the past few years and it is to be hoped that soon slick autotuned erzatz soul will vanish from the earth (a big dream I know).
This is one to look forward to.
