While the world is dealing with a pandemic, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Stokley Williams is taking time to reflect and finding the silver lining in the midst of it all. His single “She,” from his upcoming album “Sankofa,” is a current favorite amongst both old and new fans. The single has earned two weeks at no.1 on the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary Chart. While speaking to Stokely about life, I recalled our conversation three years ago and before he released his first album, “Introducing Stokley.” Furthermore, we covered the success he has had since then. On this album, Stokely reconnected with his mentors, super duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. He also collaborated with Snoop Dogg on the second single. titled “Vibrant.” Stokley’s acknowledgement of where he came from is the driving force for “Sankofa.”
I’m thrilled to share with you an interview I had with the one and only Brain Culbertson. I’m a “HUGE” fan, so that made it even more of an honor for me. He was very gracious to take the time out of his busy schedule. He shared with me his concept behind the 2nd Annual Napa Valley Getaway that he hosts. He gave me some insight on how his CD “Dreams” evolved, and talked about his collaborations with a few of the finest vocalists and musicians. We also shared our admiration for the legendary David Sanborn, and how he influenced us both at an early age.
Brian loves playing in Charlotte, NC, and is looking forward to performing at the Uptown Jazzfest on Friday June 21st.
