Today’s interpretation of soul music is so far warped from its origins that it’s easy to lose sight of what was so great about the genre. You begin to crave the sultry melodies and velvet vocals from times gone by, the swaying feeling of complete emersion into something you’re so in tune with, something that truly speaks to you. That gets lost in today’s version of soul music. Then enters Christopher Gallant.
“Skipping Stones” makes up for the lack of old school soul with its laid back beat and effortless vocal work. Every twist and turn takes you on the journey of a true soul track, with its ups and downs and its light and shade. Gallant’s vocals are in a league of their own and the harmonies between himself and Jhené Aiko further add to the true soul feeling of “Skipping Stones” with their blissful combination.
Soul music has always been a true expression of emotion and Gallant brings that back to life with “Skipping Stones”. It’s cool, it’s crisp and it’s everything soul music has been missing.
