Blog 76: 2-Some Of The Most Under Rated & Overlooked Soul/RnB Composer In The Last 30 Years

Part 2

For part two of our blog on some of the artistes whom in our opinion weren’t recognized enough for their talent and impact in our soul and RnB category or perhaps in music period, we are going to look at three of the finest voices and one in particular who I think ‘without him’ there won’t be a Robin Thicke.
We will also be looking at another young man who was plagued with controversy from the minute Quincy Jones uttered he could be the next Michael Jackson and lastly a brother I still to this day don’t know where he is, what happened to him and really hope he returns to music to show these kids how to really sing, not mumbling.

 

Jon B

What do you know about real music? What do you know about this man? I bet you will be hard pressed to find someone under 30 years old that can answer these questions.

Born Jonathan Buck, Jon B rose to fame after his 1995 commercially successful Bonafide but it was his 1997 sophomore LP Cool Relax that featured the hit single R U Still Down with 2pac  that gave him the nod allegedly as the prince of blue eyed soul.  

His 2001 project Pleasures Like U didn’t do too badly but for some reason he slowly vanished into thin air. On a positive note we hear he is back to recording music with producer extraordinaire Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jenkins so hopefully there is some good music in the works.

Tevin Campbell

When The legendary Quincy Jones introduced Tevin Campbell to the world 29 years ago as a 13 year old heir to the King Of Pop’s throne I thought Q was just a giving a PR stunt for his Back On The Block album but when this kid sang?

The rest as the say was history.

His debut T.E.V.I.N. was a success and his 1993 sophomore I’m Ready produced Babyface and the late great Prince was and still is a classic material and his most commercially successful album to date. I wonder what he is up to these days but we could sure use some of his tenor vocal range of E2 to D6.
This young man paved the way for Usher Raymond.

 

Jesse Powell


If you do not know about Jesse Powell you are not a Soul/RnB enthusiast, I would not blame you either because someone wants put it to me, ‘people who know, know‘ .

22 years ago he came to the scene with his five octave vocal range after been discovered by Louis Silas. His Debut in 1996 which features arguably one of the most played songs in weddings as the bride and groom’s first dance anthem You, he has since disappeared after his 2003 LP, I have seen or heard anything from him, not even on social media.

Stay tuned for part three and leave a comment to tell us if you think we missed something out.
