Hot SoulCut Alert – Sir Gant & the Invisible Force – I’m Gonna Miss You

7 02 2011

One of the most popular cuts on the modern soul scene over the past couple of months has been Sir Gant & the Invisible Force’s timeless slice of soul, I’m Gonna Miss You featuring Boyz II Men founding member, Marc Nelson. Taken from the upcoming album, The Journey, I’m Gonna Miss You is a midtempo ethereal gem that calls to mind the work of great artists such as Lamont Dozier, Earth, Wind & Fire and George Duke.

The driving force behind Sir Gant & the Invisible Force is producer, arranger, keyboardist and composer, Dean Gant, perhaps best loved for his co-production and arrangement of arguably the greatest soul album of the 1980s, Anita Baker’s impeccable Rapture. Sir Gant has worked with some of the most influential figures in soul and jazz over the past forty years including Peabo Bryson, Outkast, Earth, Wind & Fire, Curtis Mayfield, Jerry Butler, Bill Withers and Deniece Williams. Musicians on the album include Omar Hakim, Steve Ferrone, Ricky Lawson, Al McKay, David T. Walker, Gerald Albright, Rahmlee, Dr. George Shaw, Marcus Miller, Nathan East and percussionist Paulinho da Costa. With this pedigree, and the quality of the album’s first single, we have high hopes for Sir Gant’s forthcoming ‘Journey’.

For more information on Sir Gant, head on over to Reverbnation to listen to more cuts off the upcoming album, which should officially be with us by the start of March. In the interim, you can purchase I’m Gonna Miss You at iTunes. Nice one!
