Here's another album that wouldn't be in my life if not for a randomly-listen-to-a-bunch-of-stuff Apple Music session. Luckily it contains the most important ingredient to catch my ear and make me listen to the whole album, a killer first track.
That track is, "Holding On," and it showcases all that makes Gregory Porter great; tight songwriting, a talented backing band, and his incredibly smooth voice. Seriously, the man's voice is audio butter. I saw Porter own a Los Angeles stage for about two and a half hours last year, and let me tell you, there is nothing about that voice anyway enhanced in the recording process. He's the real deal.
Standout tracks include, "Don't Lose Your Steam," "In Fashion," "Insanity," and the title track, to go along with "Holding On."
