UK release date 24.09.2015

A slice of neo-soul balladry with an understated, yet seductive groove over lush chords reminiscent of Roy Ayers, gives this tune a real touch of class.

This bittersweet track finds melismatic soul singer extraordinaire, Gary B.Poole, strutting his (vocal) stuff, while pouring out his heart, in a love and mistrust vein.

Guitarist Tony Remy stamps his authority by adding his magic too - with trademark bluesy, jazzy licks over a stylish production. Macauley is definately one to watch...
