A certain level of soulful expression can be reached only when stars align correctly up there as well as down here. Once in a while a new track comes along that fools you into thinking you are listening to some lost re-discovery from the catacombs of American soul. The first release on Timmion Records new Stylart imprint should leave a lasting mark on all friends of quality soul balladry. -Love Can Last Forever- by the enigmatic Fred is the tune that will turn your heart to the love side whether you hear it at the end of a heavy club night. gripping on the wood grain wheel. or leaning on the bars of the penitentiary. Who is Fred then. you might ask. Suffice to say he is a complicated man. who possesses a buttery falsetto and the rare power to turn banal testimonies of heartache and love into cathartic magic. This basically means he has soul. and we don t state this lightly here at Timmion. After his first release. there are a few other heaters lined up. so be prepared for Fred. his star is rising.
