I have literally been a KISS fan my entire life – and I have always felt that Paul Stanley was one of the most underrated frontmen in the business and I’m excited for his new project – Paul Stanley’s Soul Station.
Paul and the band have been playing live shows for a while – reworking and paying respect to the classic R&B music makers – but this year we get the band’s debut album titled Now and Then. It hits on March 5th and today we got the first video – and it’s pretty damn fantastic.
Here’s the official breakdown of the band from Stanley’s webstie:
“KISS co-founder & frontman, best-selling author and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer PAUL STANLEY has spent the last few years developing a project close to his heart. Soul Station is a band gathering some of today’s leading musicians to pay tribute to the greatest artists and songs from the R&B and soul catalog to keep this vital music current. While a surprise to many, Stanley’s early pivotal roots in this music has quietly turned this passion into a celebrated touring and recording band. Stanley’s 15-piece ensemble group has toured the U.S. and Japan, and recently recorded an album of nine classic soul songs and five new original songs. NOW AND THEN will be released March 5 on UMe available for pre-order NOW, the first single “O-O-H Child” (The Five Stairsteps) is available today HERE.”
Got a feeling this album could be something special.
