DOWNLOAD: AB – PROLOGUE VOL. 1
I got to see the particularly gifted Aaron Abernathy (vocals, producing, musician and very good looks) by chance. He was doing the backing vocals for the Foreign Exchange in Amsterdam and I was testing my new cam. Mr. Abernathy’s performance was actually the very first video I ever shot with that cam. Of course I had no clue as to who Ab was at the time and in retrospect the sound levels of my cam needed some adjusting, but Ab left a lasting impression nonetheless.
Fast forward to now … I have a feeling that in the very near future Ab will not be that hard to remember. He is already familiar for his collabs with the Foreign Exchange, Black Milk, Slum Village and 14TK but I guess now the time has come to strike out on his own.
Prologue is the first part of a series of 2 releases of cover songs that I can’t seem to stop streaming. Mixed and mastered by Black Milk, the EP tells a story of courtship using nostalgic records from, Total, Chaka Khan and Shuggie Otis as a soundtrack to a contemporary love story. All I know is that Mr. Abernathy’s very pleasant voice has totally swept me of my feet and I’m all warm and fussy on the inside. Maybe it has a little to do with the fact that Ab is not only easy on the ears but also very very easy on the eyes ….anyways whatever it is, he has certainly got my attention !!
