Review Of Aloe Blacc – Lift Your Spirit (Universal Music Canada)

Aloe BlaccDespite only having gained significant notoriety in North America as the vocalist on the Avicii hit Wake Me Up, Aloe Blacc is no stranger to the music biz. On Lift Your Spirit, Blacc’s third solo effort, he brings together the world of soul, R&B and pop music in effortless harmony. Blacc’s baritone voice radiates a warmth that owes a debt to the greats like Bill Withers and Otis Redding yet he still manages to confidently carve his own path. The Pharell-produced Love Is The Answer is slick and smooth while Can You Do This is an uplifting slice of soul.
