CHARLES STEPHEN HUGHES, singer/composer - LOVE NOTES
A good, rhythmic beat with a sturdy bass and vocals that make you want to get up and shout.
Genre-melding: He mixes r&b, gospel, and house influences to come up with a sound that makes your body want to get up and move.
"I write lyrics that come from my heart and soul. I write about something I've been through or where I was at a particular moment, a special feeling that I experienced."
He writes bittersweet wisdom: LOVE HURTS / but it's good for you. A frenetic chase: You've got me RUNNING FOR YOUR LOVE. A wake-up call: TIME AFTER TIME he's left you lonely / why are you so sad?
Strident: I'm sick of all this bullshit / people living in the street / there's got to be another way / there's got to be a better day / THIS DAY SHALL BE.
Fervent: LOVE LETTER (DEAR LORD). Inspirational: PRAISE HIM! Puts your hands and feet into holy motion!
He gets close and shares some tender motion: LOVE UNLIMITED. Stays close. His mellow voice intones: My DESTINY / is here for me / in your arms / is where I want to be.
He turns reminiscent: I remember a sunny day / a love so tender / oh how I remember / AUNTIE'S LOVE.
Then loose, low-down, & blues-tinged: MOMMA SAID / a piece of a man / is better than none at all. And scathing: But truth is very hard to find / coming from your kind / WHAT IS LOVE / a one-way street.
Finally uplifting, anthemic, soaring: I'm calling all STARS.
Charles has been currently working on a new project, entitled...The Dance....
Watch for it !!!!
