Surrender to Love
I’m embarrassed to admit that this album was buried in my
wish list for quite some time before I actually took the plunge.
Probably due to the fact I had only heard one or two tracks from
(I am trying to minimise the amount of one-track albums
in my collection). Fear not, this is definitely not one of those
albums. I cannot take this album out of my CD player, in fact it
has taken me some time to reach track 18 (or track 25 (the last
track after all the gaps), the replay button on my remote is worn
This husband and wife team have produced a ‘Real Soul Album’,
which encompasses the spirit of unity, love and life laced in an
old school vibe. It is so refreshing to hear real instrumentation

which tends to cancel out longevity and real classics which fortunately
this album has many of.
Though I missed Kindred perform live at the Jazz café in
London recently, this album begins with a live intro, all later
tracks are studio recorded but you can still imagine couples embracing
and swaying to the vibe with proceeding tracks such as ‘Surrender
to love’, Rhythm of life’ and Far away’.
'Real Soul for the 21st century!
