Harris Adams - Ring Ring
Another review I have been leaving for far too long; this time it is from new soul singer Harris Adams. From the release information I have been given, Mr Adams was born in Sheffield, he has since relocated to the capital and with inspiration taken from Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and dash of a modern contemporary style, Mr Adams is slowly establishing himself in the UK soul scene. I will be honest, it is a little hard to get much of a gauge of this man as it is only one song on this release. Never the less, I have been asked to review this and this I will do.
"Ring Ring" is a track with a classic sound, the Marvin Gaye comparison is a perfect match as this track reminds me an awful lot of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine". The production job that has been done on this song is of a top quality and a lot of money and time has obviously been spent on this song. It is one I would recommend to any fans of soul/old school r & b and once there is an EP or album released, I will have a further look at Mr Adams. As it is a one track release, to give it a five out of five would be too much, but it is also better than a decent mark. I just wish there was more to go on here, as good as the song is. But, it is also best to keep the audience waiting and if this guy does a duet with Myles Sanko I might explode.
4 out of five - This is really good, just short of perfect (MORE SONGS PLEASE!!!!)
