Earl Whitaker Releases “Song Of Love” Single
Earl Whitaker started singing with the church choir as a child, and he’s kept on going ever since. The singer, songwriter, producer, and publisher has written for and performed with acts like Positive Choice and Black Ivory on the Buddah music label. That experience allowed Whitaker to opened for artists such as Ashford and Simpson, The Stylistics, Blue Magic, The Dramatics and The Chi-Lites. As a backing musician, he’s lent his talents to artists like The Drifters and Fred Parris and the Five Satins.
Now, Earl Whitaker is taking his musical career to the next level with the announcement that he’s releasing his latest single, “Song of Love.”
“Song of Love” has a definite old-school vibe, with backing melodies that sound culled from the best of the 70s soul jams Whitaker listened to all those years ago. Jazzy keyboards, and funky guitar are layered atop a high-hat rhythm that sets a perfect backdrop for Whitaker’s easy-flowing vocals.
“Song of Love” is a message in a bottle, a plea to be heard. Whitaker says his message is about finding the courage to share your emotions, in pursuit of a human connection with another heart.
“It’s ok to express ones feelings towards someone else.”
Equal parts Aaron Neville and Barry White, Earl Whitaker’s tenor style soars and twists hypnotically with adroit felicity. “Song of Love” is the perfect showcase for Whitaker’s amazing vocal talents.
With such an old-school sound, it’s no surprise to learn that some of Whitaker’s biggest musical influences include classic acts like Earth, Wind, & Fire and Peabo Bryson. But Whitaker also takes a cue from some unusual sources, like the Beatles, and country-pop singer and songwriter B.J. Thomas.
If you’re a fan of classic, old-school soul and R&B, check out Earl Whitaker’s “Song of Love.”
