Lady: Truth and Soul

Truth & Soul

R&B / Soul

Lady are a duo who come with impeccable soul credentials. Singers Terri Walker and Nicole Wray have both already enjoyed chequered careers, releases and collaborations. As Lady, soul from the old-school dominates their approach: the album is an undeniably funky mix of Motown swing, retro-soul swagger and sassy hip-hop attitude that takes you back to the late 1960s and early 1970s. While the presence of producers Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman (who’ve worked with Adele, Aloe Blacc, Lee Fields and others) has to be noted, much of the momentum here comes when Walker and Wrap buzz off each other to create near-perfect tunes such as Money, If You Wanna Be My Man and the sublime Tell Me the Truth . Probably the best calling card here is Get Ready , a tune full of soulful panache and brassy drive. theband
