This spring, Faith introduces fans to a whole new side of her sound. With these songs Faith has broken her Americana sound wide open, inviting the rhythms and magic of Memphis to soak in to every note. Singles “Sugar” and “Thank You” came out of a soulful one-day session at Memphis’ legendary Royal Studios – it’s hard not to come back with gold when you’re singing in the same vocal booth as Al Green – produced again by Houston. Faith will share them with fans February 26, and they’ll be included on her next full-length release slated for late 2016.
So she’s gone from the big band and twang of 1835 Madison to the finger-picked melancholy of After It’s Said & Done to straight up Memphis soul. But with her trusted live band by her side (Jesse Dakota on drums, Poyee Yancy on bass, Ori Naftaly on guitar) and Lucero’s Rick Steff back to take you to church on the organ, the one element of Faith’s sound that hasn’t changed is that incredible voice. In fact, on “Sugar” and “Thank You” Faith seems, more than ever, to be right at home. The tracks represent, undoubtedly, her strongest and most transporting vocal performance to date. Calling on the influence of Otis Redding, Etta James and Nina Simone, Faith is pushing her musical boundaries, and once again, finding her voice.
