Jeff is blue-eyed soul of the highest calibre and any doubting Thomas out there should be silenced by "Soul Celebration". Jeff has enough of this in abundance, and I promise that his work will put faith back into real soul music for you.
We should all celebrate and have a good time. The world is always attacking us, demanding our attention. Let this song, and the sentiment behind I, allow you to relieve yourself of these burdens. The halcyon days of Keni Burke and other classic early 80s dancers flood into my memory when music had spirit. Jeff has a clarion call to take things back to how they used to be when the music moved him. The horns that accompany this, as well as the dreamy keyboard refrain really is tip-top.

In his own unique style on "Color Blind" Jeff Hendrick will make you feel alright.
On the eleven soulful songs on the album we enjoy the good things in life with him. Jeff Hendrick is a singer, songwriter, saxophonist and producer who will capture your heart. The soulful melodies he sings with his sexy voice are a pleasure to hear. Jeff loves music and music loves Jeff. The opening track "Back To The Days" puts you in the right mood to enjoy the whole album. You will be completely mesmerized by the love song "Be Around You" with that beautiful guitar. Another song to dream away is the duet "Be Yours" with the lovely voice of Shannon Paige.
Jeff Hendrick gives us a lot of sunshine and beauty in "Island Girl" a bit in the style of Enrique Iglesias but really hot. If you like stepping you have to catch the rhythm that is telegraphed by the song "It's Alright". Saturdays in general feel good but they feel even better when you listen to "Saturday" from Jeff Hendrick. While the final results aren't in yet for what was dubbed 'The Unsigned Vibe" contest in Calgary, the powers that be at VIBE were so impressed with what Hendrick has produced that they bucked up and sent him to Canadian Music Week to represent the station and the contest at a major live showcase.
Once Hendrick landed in Toronto with his sax and a stack of promotional copies of his 'Bout Time' disc, the dominoes just kept falling in his favour. They named the night Urban Flowcase, over people attended, and they gave me a 20 minute slot," says Hendrick, who rubbed shoulders with acts like Rascalz and Jully Black. The next confidence booster came a day later at a Canadian Music Week listening session directed at urban artists.
Every member of the panel had nothing but complimentary things to say and Pete Farmer from the L. Virgin office looked at the audience and said,'This is hot, hot, hot'" The track in question was 'Dance With Me'. FLOW's Williams echoed the comments from the rest of the panel and then two days later reiterated his initial response by adding the track to the station's rotation list.
As of this past weekend 'Dance With Me' had moved into medium rotation, which translates to more than 20 spins a week. It's opened a lot of doors and labels are taking interest.
There's talk of a couple tracks ending up on a nationally distributed compilation and Spek from Dream Warriors wants to work with me. Soul music. Jeff Hendrick is not only asking this question, he is ready to prove that the music-loving masses in Calgary and Western Canada, for that matter are due for real soul music. I don't allude to being anybody but a guy who grew up in Edmonton and is passionate about soul music.
With this prize, he built up his home studio and produced Soul Celebration on his own, although he admits it would have been nice to bring in some bigger names to help with the record. I wanted to think long-term about how to make the winnings last, so my home studio was something I think was the right thing to do. As Hendrick explains, the powers that be in the music industry think only in terms of current trends.
It's very difficult to compete in a world of songs that are very overproduced, and subject matter is limited, at best. You deal with a whole side of the industry that wants to tell you, 'Yeah, but if you want to make it, and if you want to wake up poolside in Los Angeles, you are going to have to adapt with the trends.
But again, cooler still would be to resonate with people in his own region — people, he thinks, who should take pride in what they have and embrace it first before exporting it enthusiastically.
That's to say the year's perfect modern soul set. I would say that this album is even better than the last: the crossover pop-soul feel is there, without detracting from its appeal to the serious soul man.
The album is quite obviously aimed at the dance floor. Enjoy this album on Qobuz apps with your subscription Listen on Qobuz. Your browser does not support the audio element. Bout Time Jeff Hendrick.
