(July 19, 2017) Soul music fans were spoiled in the 1980s by an incredible generation of female song stylists such as Anita Baker, Phyllis Hyman and Patti Austin. And while it is difficult to find those kinds of high quality adult soul singers on broadcast radio today, they exist, just waiting to be found.

We recently found one of that rare breed: singer and songwriter Kea Michaels. With a mission to spread honesty through her lyrics, but with a voice that recalls many of the all-time greats, she is delivering a soulful, jazzy blend that has completely won us over. And that begins with her attractive new single, “I Love You.”

Kea tells us about the song, “‘I Love You’ is a reminder that what you may be on a quest to find, perhaps is already there. Once revealed that realization may have come too late, so be careful who you take for granted.” Well, we certainly don’t plan to take Kea Michaels for granted. And we’re excited to share her and her song “I Love You” with SoulTrackers as our new SoulTracks First Listen. It is a sneak peek of the song that will be our Song of the Month for August.

Check out “I Love You” below and welcome Kea Michaels to SoulTracks!
