I was listening too and wow! I love Sounds of Blackness a lot.

We know Gary Hines since couple years now and he is always generous with us. Always available for an interview. And like you said Funkygirl he worked with a lot of known artists, but I'm always surprise to see how he is always excited to do an interview on our show which is an independent radio show. That is a very good motivation for us.

We love you Sounds of Blackness. :grin:

Jen Durkin is cool. Actually, that was her singing lead with Bernie Worrell and the WOO Warriors.

The Bomb Squad's guitarist Ian McHugh contacted me and is about to drop the follow-up funk bomb on us from this band. Should be playing it soon on-air.

Gary Hines, Music Director / Producer Sounds of Blackness states, "Sounds of Blackness and I are extraordinarily overjoyed to have the honor of signing with Malaco! Sounds of Blackness and Malaco have a lot in common - bringing Black Music to all people, celebrating four decades of existence, and remaining true to our roots! Sounds of Blackness dedicates "FLY AGAIN" the 1st Single from our forthcoming new CD, to Malaco and to all of the people of the cities across America and around the world, who have recently suffered unfathomable devastation. Together we will all soon be able to "FLY AGAIN!"

Tommy Couch Jr, Vice President, Malaco, Inc, states, “We are so exited to work with a group of this magnitude. The Sounds Of Blackness are still about the music and the message while maintaining their unique creativity.”

Lionel Ridenour, Executive Director – Urban Division states, “Fly Again” is a great record. Radio stations across the country should just play it!”

“Much like Bebe & Cece Winans, The Sounds Of Blackness was extremely instrumental in crossing Gospel / Inspirational music over into the mainstream in the 90’s and It is great to see them return stronger than ever.” states, D.A. Johnson, Executive Director – Gospel Division.
