Amittai Blakk — The Love We Share (2019)
A unique synthesis of jazz, hip-hop, old school R&B, reggae and rock, Amittai Blakk conveys an unmistakable intensity and soulfulness that carries listeners to another place. Drawing from diverse influences, including Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Parliament Funkadelic, and Rare Earth, Amittai Blakk has forged a sound uniquely their own, and one that defies genre… A sound that follows no traditional rules. Through collaborative songcraft and seasoned, professional musicians, this 5-piece, Charlotte, NC-based band is already a “must-see” live act, built to blow out an audience, and poised to take college campuses and festivals by storm.
The 7-song debut release, The Love We Share is an explosive and dynamic tour de force, merging impressive and accomplished musicianship with powerhouse vocals to forge an immersive auditory experience. Driving and insistent, original and experimental, the band tackles such universal themes as love, addiction, eternity and equality; all the while pushing the musical envelope — from bare-bones power to silky-sultry-sexy-smooth. Musically complex, lyrically poignant, and vocally dynamic; from start to finish, The Love We Share is a wild ride, but one that listeners will want to take over and over again.
