Aphrose: searching for the ultimate”Good Love”
Bathed in rhythmic percussion, shimmering synth, and a wall of lush harmonious vocals, “Good Love” is a vintage soul ballad about finding the right person, taken from Canadian artist Aphrose’s upcoming second album Roses, scheduled for release in the Fall of 2023 on LRK Records.
“Good Love” delivers the delightful, invigorating musical magic of live instrumentation, player collaboration, and the subtle intricacies that tie the sounds of soul with a bow. A song that celebrates the search and ultimate discovery of the right love, “Good Love” creatively evokes the feelings the track journeys through, communicating to the listener through both lyric and instrumentation.
Taking listeners through the difficulty of finding love, and the occasional need for reassurance, Aphrose‘s newest single tenderly reaffirms that finding “Good Love” is not only possible, but exceptional when the time comes. Aphrose‘s stunning range crosses the vocal stratosphere, with both a lead and background performance that packs the powerful punch of soul’s female giants, showcasing her astonishing range, and complete vocal control.
Replicating the warmth of the 70’s – a time when listeners could almost feel a sound, “Good Love” could easily play between “Lady In My Life” and any track from Songs In The Key Of Life. Rhythmically glistening with percussive and vocal interplay, Aphrose‘s new singlesoffers an enchanting back to the height of Soul, and forward to her glowing take on it.
With music that moves between the golden age of 70s soul and its modern iterations, Canadian rnb, soul, and neo soul artist, Aphrose, (Joanna Mohammed) is a stunningly expansive vocalist and creative lyricist who honors the origins of the genres through her expertly created, and historically informed sound. With vocal dexterity that would impress her musical heroines, Aphrose‘s dazzling, 1970s hued sound transports listeners to a time when soul music went beyond a musical category and into a feeling, while incorporating the soulful sounds of today.
Raised in Scarborough in a Trinidadian household by parents who owned a record store in Toronto’s West end, Aphrose’s truly explosive vocal talent has led her to perform background vocals for Daniel Caesar, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Jessie Reyez, and Charlotte Day Wilson, and after hearing her song on CBC Radio, the opening spot on Chantal Kreviazuk & Raine Maida’s Moon vs. Sun tour, invited by Kreviazuk herself. Aphrose’s music and talent has firmly placed her on a steep incline to becoming one of Canada’s leading soul artists.
