Yes, it’s true. Good things come to those who wait, and we’ve been waiting a long time for Nadir’s new album The Book of Jonah. Well, here’s to the virtue of patience. The Book of Jonah is finally HERE!
For his third full-length album, Detroit’s soul scribe has penned a bold anthology of prose, parable, prophecy and fable, expertly fusing 21st Century blues, modern rock, progressive soul and new Detroit funk – often in the same song. From the blaxploitation – inspired opening salvo, “A Hustler (In Spite of Myself)“, and the covert soul mission of the greasy first single, “Go It Alone“, to his hard-hearted collaboration with rock/soul diva Mayaeni on “95 Miles Down the Road” and the hip hop blues ballad “The Bottle“, Nadir continues to refine his unique and ever evolving Distorted Soul sound.
Take a few minutes to preview and share the tracks on the player below. If you like what you hear, support your brother, Nadir, and buy some music. If you buy the Enhanced CD, you’ll also receive the “Go It Alone” video and the brand new music video for “95 Miles Down The Road“. (And don’t forget the 7-inch vinyl singles for both of those tracks.) So turn your speakers up, press play, and enjoy.
“To label Nadir as a neo-soul artist would be neglecting his rock roots; to call him a rock artist would be overlooking his hip-hop and jazz influences. Fully encompassing all the talents that Nadir possesses would be comparable to expanding the mathematical term Pi to its last digit.” – Michigan Chronicle
