KEM – Why Would You Stay – Greatest Soul Ballad of 2010?

2 07 2010

Wholly unfashionable (in a GOOD way) stretched-out balladry from the unmistakable KEM, with the fine new track, ‘Why Would You Stay’ from his upcoming Intimacy album. This has the sound of a vintage Lionel Richie ballad (think Still or Sail On). And if you’re at all doubting the pedigree of this tune, listen to the exquisite string arrangement, delicately put together by the legendary David J.Vann de Pitt from What’s Going On fame. Sterling musicianship combined with KEM’s unique pleading yet strong soulful voice; Why Would You Stay is the finest ballad of 2010 so far.

I can’t wait for the album due for release later this month. We’ll get a review up here as soon as we can.
