Will Downing’s new CD Soul Survivor is set for release on September 22nd as he celebrates 3 decades as a recording artist. It’s his 20th album and it features "'I'm Feeling The Love' which he says is an “anthem for anyone that has been in and out of love. It is a song about renewed spirit. As always, Avery*Sunshine's performance is heartfelt and it is a perfect match for me. She absolutely made me feel the love with her amazing vocals."- Will Downing
Will Downing's voice is one of the most distinctive, loved and instantly recognizable voices in R&B. His flawless, emotive, buttery-smooth and agile honey-toned baritone, along with his impeccable phrasing and jazz-fueled agile runs, seamlessly bridge the worlds of R&B and Jazz. Downing's sophisticated and always-cool sensibilities have proven to be timeless and have garnered him the role as the reigning king of romantic ballads.
Shanachie Entertainment will release Soul Survivor - Downing's follow-up to last year's critically heralded Black Pearls. Downing's anticipated Soul Survivor unites him with a number of special guests including labelmates Avery*Sunshine, Najee, Phil Perry and Maysa.
