Solid 80s modern soul from the team of Dunn
Pearson and Bruce
Gray – two session players and songwriters, with experience on a lot of other records – brilliantly breaking out on their own as a lead act! Official Business has a great modern soul approach – a bit similar to McFadden & Whitehead, but with more of the 80s sound of male duet groups like Gemini or The Valentine Brothers. Bruce
Gray handles all the lead vocals, but gets backing by a number of background singers – and the grooves are laid down by players that include Pearson, Phillip Woo, and Woddy Cunningham. The whole thing's a great little sleeper – with more than a few catchy tracks, and a great smooth soul sound that really holds up! Titles include "Shout For Joy", "Take Me Away", "Mt You (Up On The Hill", "If You Come With Me", and "I Owe It To Me".
