The first we've heard from St, Louis singer Brian Owens – and it's one of the better neo-classic soul records we've stocked in a little while! Brian has and old school reverent approach, but does his thing with fresh, unique perspective. He's a solid singer and songwriter – with a style that'll appeal to anyone with a love for classic soul. Brian's also a veteran, having served in Afghanastan and elsewhere in the Middle East – managing to sing of those experiences in a way that transcends politics and ideology – and doing so in universally soulful way. Impressive stuff! Includes "Soul Anthem (Bring It Back)", "Keep Movin On", "I Just Want To Feel Alright", "Open (Lovely Day)", "Beautiful Love", "Let's Get Out", "Oh I", "Troubled Man", "The Answer (PS: If You Wanna Feel Alright)" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

In The Flow
Trippin' N' Rhythm, 2013. New Copy
One of the most dynamic albums we've ever heard from flutist Althea Rene – a set that's still got all her sweet soulful solo work firmly in place, but one that also adds in a bit more groove at the bottom too! The album's done in close collaboration with Michael Broening – who plays ... CD
Hard Water
Jonathan Sigel, 2014. New Copy
Sweet soulful trumpet from Jonathan Sigel – an artist who's got a really great ear for the best fusion styles of the 70s – particularly work by some of the more R&B inflected trumpet players of the time! The grooves are awash in warm keyboard lines, and sometimes feature either a ... CD
Jungle Mumbo Jumbo
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy
The long-overdue return of Coultrain – an artist we've been digging right from the start, when he dropped off a pile of handmade CDs as freebies to give away in our store! Since that time, Coultrain has emerged to become one of the freshest talents of the underground – through work ... CD
Ruth
Flatline Collective, 2014. New Copy
A beautiful debut from Ruth Koleva – a singer with roots in Bulgaria, but an ability to sing in a really universal style – a crisp take on 21st Century soul music that's bound to make her a real up-and-comer in the global soul underground! The album's got a perfect groove from start to ... CD
Universal (Japan), Early 2010s. New Copy
A contemporary take on the Free Soul genre – initially a way of digging back into vintage soul from the 70s, in order to find a whole new groove – but also a surprisingly great way of digging 21st century work as well! The collection brings together tracks from both the underground and ... CD
EMI, 2000. New Copy
The first-ever full length presentation of a legendary live set from D'Angelo – recorded early in his career, and working through a host of classic tunes that really add in a nice layer to his own great music! D'Angelo's caught here in the legendary temple of groove – London's Jazz ... CD
Nia, 2012. New Copy Gatefold
A beautiful second record from Abiah – warmly wonderful material that's as sensitive as a singer/songwriter set, yet also has a deep sense of soul as well! Vocals and piano are wonderfully intertwined – in a mode that has the depth of jazz, yet the focus of soul music as well – ... CD
King Of Hearts
Makin' Moves (UK), 2013. New Copy
We haven't heard from Peven Everett in quite some time – and the respite's been a great one, because it seems that Peven's really regrouped, found new strengths, and has come out with his best record in years! The whole thing's one of the best produced, packaged, and put-together sets we've ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great ... CD
Jag Skulle Bara Ga Ut
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
Amazing vibes from Mattias Stahl and his trio – easily one of the most inventive players on his instrument in recent years – ringing out here with a sense of tone and timing that's simply superb! There's a modern edge to all these tracks that takes us back to Teddy Charles' vibes ... CD
Bamboo/Shout (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Tripped out funky soul from the great Edwin Birdsong – a rare indie album released between his years at Polydor and Philly International! The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird ... CD
Bam-Boo/Shout (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A very cool, really rare soul album from the Philly scene – one that was written, produced, and arranged by Hammond organist Charles Earland – but which is a sweet soul album with a really great feel! There's definitely a touch of Earland's keyboard work on the set – especially ... CD
