“SURROUNDED BY GREATNESS” • This is the room where Frank Sinatra sang, where Nat “King” Cole made history + where legends perform. Capitol Records, Studio B. Grateful for + humbled by the talent on this album: Don Was - producer, Ed Cherney - lead engineer, Jeff Fitzpatrick - 2nd engineer, Kris Bowers - keys, Brad Allen Williams - guitars, Pino Palladino - bass, Nate Smith - drums + Brian Bender - mixing engineer. The Spirit of God was in the room + the music of Bill Withers was in our hearts. I can honestly say that this is the best album I’ve ever made + that’s saying a lot! But it’s true. The emotion + the fellowship in the room was truly powerful!! My 8th studio album “Lean on Me” is coming this Sept on Blue Note Records. Get ready y’all!! ✌🏽🌼🎸🖤🌈🙏🏽✊🏽🦋🔥💎🌎🌊
