Stone Foundation release ‘Beverley’, the first single from the highly anticipated new album “A Life Unlimited”
‘Beverley’ the first single from the highly anticipated new Stone Foundation album and featuring US soul stalwart US soul Nolan Porter, is instantly recognizable and brimming with soulful nostalgia via perfect harmonies, glowing organs, infectious brass and a laid back funky summer swing moving throughout.
The track was the title music in the award winning film (best film at the Portobello Film Awards & East End Film Festival ) written by Cass Pennant & Alexandra Thomas and starring Vicky McClure (This is England) and Laya Lewis (Skins) who feature in the accompanying video which follows a gritty punk romance bringing out the deeper yearning in this bright and solidly engaging track.
Stone Foundation are one of those rare British gems that hark back to the days of peak Weller in Style Council, Acid Jazz Galliano and James Taylor Quartet territory. However, this is 2015 and somehow Stone Foundation’s music has never felt so current and fresh. It’s the sort of music James Brown and Dr John’s legacy continues to inspire giving everyone a smile while observing social commentary and offering absolution for any regret or feeling of pain which is tantamount to flawless contemporary British soul.
The group, who’s previous album ‘To Find The Spirit’ saw the band reach the Chart top 40 last year with regular radio play and glowing reviews across national and regional press release their strongest album to date ‘A Life Unlimited’ this August 7th.
After successful tours with The Specials and their own headline shows in Japan, selling out London’s Jazz Café, signing to the prestigious P-Vine label and an appearance at Fuji Rocks festival everything is lining up for a soul revival of epic proportions courtesy of Stone Foundation.
